My wife and I always go to Lon's when it's a special occasion. The ambiance is romantic and relaxing. The food and service always exceed our expectations. Try it once and you will be hooked.

Extensive menu and wine list. Food is fresh and cooked to perfection. The seating is spacious and romantic. There is also a bar attached. Reservations are a good idea during tourist season.

Found this gem through TA. Tucked away in Paradise Valley, this restaurant was very quaint with an old cowboy town feel. Food was delicious and service was spot on. Will definitely be back. If you get a chance, go down in the wine cellar. Awesome!

A gorgeous spot for a drink. The live music really sets the mood. We had a really special night here and were able to make amazing memories and all we did was order a few drinks. The courtyard is a desert fairy tale and the moon shined all night long. We will defiantly be back as this made a short... More

We stay four days at The Hermosa Inn and we ate most of of meals at Lon's. The food was very good with a lot of the herbs grown on the property. The service was very good. You never had to ask for anything. It was there.

My wife and I stayed for one night at the Hermosa Inn and that night ate at Lon's the Four Diamond restaurant on site. Clearly a favorite of locals and a must for those that stay. Our server was very good, attentive but not pushy. Food was worthy and compliments of the chef.

Restaurant was recommended for wedding celebration, they have many venues for all occasions. Dinner was most delicious and our wait staff was simply the BEST. Exceeded our every expectation. Able to get a peek at wine cellar sitting area, a must do for our next visit.

Dear EasyTrvln, Thank you for the great review. The Wine Cellar is fantastic, isn't it? The Cellar is actually available for individual dinner reservations through September, so you can enjoy this space without being part of a private party. Looking forward to your next visit! -Pam More

Lon's is a delight to the senses; ambiance, smells and the soothing tranquility only the desert can offer. Great food with beautiful presentation, attentive but not intrusive service and just a fabulous place for dinner.

Spotty service (exactly how long does it take to get a cocktail napkin?). Food is underwhelming for the price (thus the title). Great atmosphere though. Have a cocktail (don't ask for a napkin!) outside when the weather is nice and Uber out and back for dinner. That would be my recommendation.
