Good food. Reasonable prices. Attentive service. Nice outdoor seating, however, loud music outside is often a bit much.

I came with several friends and work associates. I found the food, drinks and the atmosphere to be excellent.

I live near Lyon Hall and used to think of the restaurant as a great neighborhood place to meet friends & catch up over really good food. In my last three visits, the loudness of the music has totally diminished my enjoyment of the entire experience. If the owners have decided that being just another loud Clarendon bar is what...

Very nice selection of apps and dishes to share with party of 15. Service was on point for a party of this size and adapted to people coming and going without issue. Ensured drinks were always full, food was properly ordered and promptly served; bday cake was not only delivered with lit candles but then taken away to be plated... More

Lyon isn't the most popular or trendy bar in Clarendon, but that's why I like it. A nice long bar with lots of good beers on tap. They have a good floor layout, not too big not too small. Insider tip: best bathroom in Arlington.

My bride and I dined at Lyon Hall on a Sunday evening in July. We had a reservation, but there were plenty of seating available. We sat the banquette along the window wall. Conversation was easy as the restaurant was only about 1/3 occupied. Ssevice by Mark was excellent; he was very knowledgeable about wine selections--for the bride. I'm a... More

My wife and I celebrated here after closing on our house for a casual lunch. We ate outside on a nice spring day. We ordered the the Thai Mussels and the salmon. The salmon in particular was one of the best I have had at a restaurant. It's paired with couscous, beats, and legumes. The fries are so large but... More

I totally liked this place... The bartender was nice and cheery while I was having my drink waiting for my company. The waiter was super helpful and not pushy about making our decisions. Drinks were great and food was super delicious. Happy Hour every day at the bar... sign me up...

Good food with a good vibe, and the location is superb. Small wine selection, but what they had was reasonable, Chardonnay was quite good. Loved the oysters and the meat and cheese selections, try the truffle cows milk cheese, outstanding! My husband had the salmon, which he raved about. Chocolate cake was something special - definitely recommend. We had reservations,... More
