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

My wife and I went here for our anniversary, and really enjoyed it. The service is what set it apart. Not only was our server great, other servers and bussers were attentive and non-intrusive, so we always had what we needed and what we were done with was cleared quickly and quietly. Good: Service, Food, Location, Menu Needs improvement: Tables... More

By the owners of Liberty Tavern, the menu and wine/beer list at this great bistro is fairly unique and top class. Four different styles of steamed mussels, great oysters (particularly on Mondays since they are $1 a piece). Great salads and sandwiches, and a first rate charcuterie selection of pates and cheeses. When in town I try to eat here... More

I made a reservation for a Monday late lunch, party of 8, to celebrate after our son's courthouse wedding in Clarendon. I asked if they could do anything special for us, and the hostess said she would ask her manager, and put me on hold for quite awhile. Finally returning, she said she couldn't find the manager, but she would... More

I waited half an hour , and in the plate there was a super small portion with no potatoes , two two-inches long carrots and one small onion, all completely tasteless... Basically there was little in... More

Nice neighborhood restaurant. The food is good and well priced. Service is excellent. Very hospitable for families with small children. Went for a light dinner with my son and his family.

On a weekend night the place was hopping with a bar-like atmosphere. Not too noisy but still not fine dining. Seating is too crowded and we got stuck in the back next to the service elevator. All the dishes were very good, particularly the mussels. Service was slow and poor, though, with the server disappearing for 45 minutes after initial... More
