It's a classic place to dine a special hide away - not all will go to dine but many can enjoy the feel & happy hour. Go early to enjoy the expanded patio out door heaters. A great place to stay if you can get a Resv. Follow up with a visit to the Desert Botanical gardens if you're a... More

The remodel of the restaurant is very comfortable and provides the atmosphere of the southwest. The bar which is small is very comfortable and supports a socialbility of friendship. For dinner, the service is excellent. The dinner consisted of some type of octopus salad and short ribs. The salad wasn't remarkable, but the short ribs were excellent. Deserts were also... More

After busy days of working, we would stop in for Happy Hour for a cocktail and appetizers. The wait staff is very friendly, the cocktails and nibbles perfect -- try the crisp calamari [melts in your mouth] and a little white sangria. Perfect when you're sitting outside by the fireplace in the Scottsdale winter. Can't wait to go back and... More

We ate here 17 years ago when we were newlyweds, and have talked about it ever since. We decided to try it again since we're in AZ on vacation to see if it was as good as we remembered. It was better! We had the ahi tuna appetizer, short ribs, pork chop, and a lobster risotto. Everything was amazing, and... More

Valerie C, What a wonderful story! LON's is definitely an iconic restaurant that has stood the test of time by staying true to its culinary philosophy while also maintaining the highest levels of service. The inn is equally as warm and unique as LON's, so you definitely should stay here the next time you are in town. -Pam More

This place is magical at night this time of year- luminarias , candles, decor add to the sheer old world. charm of the place. We ate outside on the patio under heaters. Live guitar played in the background. Service was excellent. Fried Mushroom appetizers were done perfectly, the oysters were crisp and clean, my main dish - lamb- was ok-... More

Lon's put forward an exceptional dining experience and were extremely accommodating of our need to move our reservation. We had heard good things about the food and service from other reviews and decided to dine there on a Sunday.

This restaurant is five star. The food and service were awesome. The prices were on the high side, but worth it. The salmon & Tristan lobster were very good.

Eating brunch in the garden by the fountain was simply fantastic. One of the better breakfast experiences I've had! The food was only ok though. The portions were a little spare. Not a lot of choices either. I would certainly come back just for the experience.

Went there for dinner to celebrate the holidays. The setting is quite pretty and it was a lit up with holiday lights and fires burning which made for a festive atmosphere. The food was definitely worth the drive. We enjoyed a variety of items. The stand outs were the pork belly (one of the appetizers) and the braised short ribs.... More

If you want your dining experience to be memorable, whether it's just a night out or an event, you will do yourself a favor if you visit Lon's.
