For our time and money probably one of our favorite restaurants both in Scottsdale and anywhere. It gushes with ambiance. We were there on a Sunday evening for happy hour listening to a solo guitarist/singer singing old cowboy songs. Sounds corny maybe but what a nice variation to entertainment for patrons. We were told there were no remaining outdoor tables but they managed to get us a great table next to the fountain. Thanks! We tried the short ribs and the tenderloin entrees and they were fabulous. We can't wait to return.

Observation: when we were dining patrons had their dog and his bone along with them sitting close to where people dine. The dog sat on two different chairs used by patrons. As the owner was leaving with the dog he (the dog) urinated on the flowers and walkway area right in the middle of where patrons dine and walk....feet away from our table. I only bring this up because I'm allergic to animal hair and would prefer that restaurants not allow animals where people dine. Urinating in the dining area, even if it is outdoors, is not very appetizing.

Thank you for the extraordinary review; it's very much appreciated!

And while we are a pet-friendly property and do allow pets in the bar section of the patio only, that's no excuse for the owner's poor choice in dining etiquette and we do apologize. We try to keep all pets off the furniture and do a special cleaning of all upholstery on a regular basis, for guests such as yourself who may be allergic.

Our apologies if that ruined the ambiance but we do hope you return for another wonderful evening on the patio - it's the perfect time of year for it!

About one year ago, I wrote a review of Lon's. This is a consistently performing five star restaurant, in my rating system. The seating and organization of space allow for a business dinner for eight, at which we can all talk to one another, or a night out with music and buzz. I must admit that I was envious of the later while I had my wonderful but less exciting business dinner. The food choices are consistently good. This trip, I had an opportunity to sample breakfast, lunch and dinner. The wonderful food is consistently supported by the amazing ambience. These standouts do not compete, but work together to create a wonderful experience. Impress your business collegues with a dinner at Lon's. And take a romantic moment to indulge in dinner outside on the patio.

This is the restaurant part of the Hermosa Inn a lovely hotel in the lower Paradise Valley part of the Phoenix Metro Plex. We stopped by for a libation prior to dining elsewhere. A large patio in which to eat and off to the side outside the bar places to sit and enjoy a drink and listen to live music. The place could not have been any better. Each night at the bar they have a special. Wednesday night is half price wine by the glass. You can order small plates to go along with your drinks which we did. The grounds are quite nice and the setting is worth seeing. i think you would enjoy a visit to have lunch, dinner or just a drink as we did.

Food and service were fantastic. very nice menu with unique items and wonderful flavors. restaurant was unique and had a very comfortable, laid back flair, but very elegant. This is not to be missed if in the Phoenix area.

We were first seated next to a family with noisy children. Despite the fact that it was extremely busy, the hostess found us another table quickly and we were able to enjoy a wonderful meal with out of town friends overlooking the gardens. Service and food were great! The Club sandwich was exceptional. In the past we have not been totally satisfied with Lon's service, however, this visit was an exceptional dining experience.
