Was looking forward to some classic drinks and prime rib in a classic red-booth atmosphere with old-time servers - but alas, it was closed (and looked permanently so). Another one bites the dust - too bad

Notice Lyon's had not opened after the summer hiatus. Can understand why after my last visit. Although always enjoyable with lovely spice and extremely reasonable it had passed its prime. Loved the chopped liver they served with the bread and steaks cry nicely prepared the sides seem to have been "instatutionalized". Also if you didn't want to be over whelmed... More

Our New Year's eve dinner at Lyons was on its way to becoming a family tradition, however, this year my mom was trying desperately to secure a table for our East Coast NYE celebration dinner but she had no luck in contacting anyone at Lyons. Mom asked the concierge at our usual NYE hotel and they informed us that Lyons... More

There are many dozens of great dining options in the Coachella Valley. The longevity of this restaurant, though not top-rated, speaks for itself and obviously has a loyal following. With that said, I attempted to contact the establishment via its website with their TWO online options and then Mr. Telephone. I tried all three. In fact, I tried all three... More

The place is crazy old, which may be a turn off for some...but we thought it was cute. The server we had was so friendly. And the popovers, WOW! That was the best part of our meal. Light, airy, delicious.

This place is a blast back to 1800's..An authentic English Pub restaurant with really "heavy" dishes (dieters please don't expect a salad bar). OMG the popovers are so great and so unexpected instead of rolls or bread. I had a ton of leftovers so no one is leaving feeling empty!! Close and walking distance to the Vagabond and Curve hotels...

Food is awful, lighting and setting is gross. I cannot stand this place and being British I hate the fact they try to even cook British food. Totally..............vomit really.

Only visited to have drinks at the bar before going for dinner elsewhere. Our American friends thought it would be cool since we are British. As soon as you walk through the front door the smell hits you..old folks home!!! At first it's quite funny how 'English' it is but then it is a bit overwhelming with tacky memorabilia everywhere...

We have gone to Lyons a number of times over many years. On our most recent visit, we stopped mainly because other restaurants along our route home were crowded and Lyons was not. There are a number of reasons for that, the main one being the food... Salad was limp, not crisp. The barbequed ribs consisted of huge bones loaded... More

Mr. Lyon just celebrated his 100th birthday in April. His collection of art is incomparable. From 15th century stained glass to 20th century collection of memorable is not to be duplicated in any museum. He is an historic collector par none. The beef Wellington is the best you will ever taste and the cocktails are to be saviored. our hat... More
