One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Attentive wait staff, fantastic Scottish Salmon and pork chop. Some of the best I have ever had. A definite must to go back to when in Phoenix/North Phoenix. Make sure you have a good GPS. It is in a neighborhood.

We dined there during restaurant week and the food was great. Between the four of us, we ordered all three of the entrees and they were all fantastic. The wait staff couldn't have been any happier or attentive. The ambiance was warm and inviting. It was our first experience there and you can be sure that we will go there again.

The whole dining experience was amazing. It was my first time here and I have lived in Phoenix my entire life. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the quality of the food can't be matched. I would recommend Lon's to anyone.

Vacationing in Scottsdale and decided to go to Lon's for my 55th birthday. Hadn't been there in 10 years. Of course, it was being remodeled. No biggie. Checked in 45 minutes early and host said they were on time and to go to the lounge for a drink. Okay. Lounge is completely devoid of people; bartender brought us water and sent over the waitress. Ordered two drinks and an app. Not bad. Would have gone to a quaint outside area with only one other person there, but of course he was smoking. Skip that. Just wait to be called. An hour goes by. Then someone else enters the bar and are subsequently told their table is ready. An hour an 15 minutes have gone by and I am getting edgy. Return in the company of a staff member (guess he could sense my frustration) and he brought us to the host. The very same person who told us all was on schedule and go get a drink looked at us as if we just snuck into the restaurant and stole someone else's reservation. Looked at his screen, befuddled, and finally said to our rescuer, "Just put them at the third table on the left." Really feeling catered to now. Okay, so I am a little off and it's my birthday and I am feeling less than loved, but I am attempting to work through it. Food didn't help. Let's face it: Lon's is beautiful, but the food doesn't equal the ambience. First of all, not much choice. I went with braised short ribs. I received a braised short rib; yep, singular. A decent amount of fat on it as well. A small onion was the side dish, I guess. My wife ordered tiger shrimp (mistake) and their mac & cheese (2nd mistake). Sat near someone who brought their dog. Lastly, when you make a reservation through Open Table and state it's your birthday, if you're like me, it's not about a free dessert. I always end up with panna cotta anyway, which I despise. I just hoped for someone to say "Happy Birthday." Too much to ask for. Plan to return to AZ next year, but go elsewhere.

We celebrated my son's birthday on a Labor Day weekend. The brunch is good although they have few choices for the entree. The drink is included so that's a great deal. The best part is the ambience, very refreshing and simply elegant. We would to go back here in October so we can sit outside and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. We love this place.

Been to Lons several times and LOVED it, this time the outdoor seat, outdoor fire pits were closed and it was clear they are going through a renovation... However there was no mention to this when I booked on open table.. I took 8 people for dinner and was looking to empress, but between the make-ship bar and a hostess that had a bad disposition and never at the front desk.. I am just so surprised that things could be so different then what I experienced just 45 days ago. Not sure that I will return.. You really need to get the outside area back open and put the outdoor entertainment back.. Truly disappointed, especially when spending 1k for dinner .....

We visited Lon's twice last week. Once for a Birthday dinner which was lovely & once for Brunch when our Tucson daughter & son in law were in town. Very enjoyable.. Exceptional service. Creative menu. We will return.....

I booked a reservation at Lon's for our 42nd anniversary and it was a perfect romantic experience. The flower arrangement I ordered through OpenTable arrived right after we were seated and my wife was very impressed and pleased. The food was outstanding. We decided the evening was a 'foodgasm'. Every bite was followed by 'OMG!' And the service was also outstanding. Our server new every nuance of the menu and offered recommendations for both entrees and wine selections. We are very happy with our experience at Lon's and want to make this an annual tradition, despite the fact that we live a couple hundred miles outside the Phoenix area.

We celebrated our anniversary here on the night of a huge monsoon. Fortunately no one was sitting outside in the normally lovely garden patio. But, the inside dining room is well appointed and comfortable too. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. Strangely, even though we told them we were celebrating our anniversary, they never acknowledged it even though we ordered dessert that we all shared. How much effort would it have taken to stick a candle in it? But it was a lovely evening overall.

Lon's seems to rely on the past for both ambience and atmosphere. It has been popular for a long time, and can use major updating, both in décor and offerings.
Our dinners were fine, but the vegetable served with my steak was horrible.

Lon's was chosen because my friend had never been in over 50 years living in the valley
The staff were very cordial and attentive. Tyler who parked my car was a gentleman.
The monkey bread was superb and the Eggs Benedict some of the best I have eaten if not the best. And I really enjoyed the coffee which was of excellent quality--good choice.
I could imagine sitting outside on a cooler Sunday morning

The gentleman at the host table was so friendly and took us to our seat and have is a card for our anniversary which was signed by the staff. Our server was great and greater is by our names which made it personal. My husband ordered the halibut and I ordered the chicken. Both were equally delicious.

We were seated promptly for our reservation upon arrival. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive but not overbearing. There were several different sized parties in the restaurant, from 2 to 16 people, so the restaurant appeared appropriate for a romantic dinner or a large celebration! The short ribs and the truffle mac and cheese were so good- I cannot wait to have them again. The wine list had some great selections too.
