Lon's at The Hermosa Ratings and Reviews
We came here for my husbands birthday. The service, from making the reservations, requesting specific seating, and the superb waiter was outstanding. He was energetic, helpful, generous, conversational, and lovely. The ambiance is some of the best we've ever had. Very peaceful. There were fountains, hummingbirds, and an amazing amount of shade. Loved it so much that even though the food didn't match the outstanding service and ambiance (and the drinks were fantastic!) we will come back and even bring in our-of-towners. We just were not wowed by the menu or the food preparation or the plating, but everything else made up for it.
Just FYI, we are vegetarians, and there were not many veg options, which sometimes happens, and is fine. We can usually tweak something. My daughter and husband ordered the huevos rancheros (sans chorizo) , and it was quite small and bland. The "black beans"was just a TINY little dab beneath the fry bread. My son got the eggs Benedict and the poached eggs were over cooked, which is a big deal for eggs Benedict. We also ordered the lox and the superfood salad and they were both pleasant. The dessert (complimentary of the restaurant) was lovely.
So, not amazing food - but not horrible, and the service and ambiance were so great, we're going to come back!
We have had wonderful dinners and lunches here previously, however, our recent experience was the worst dining experience we have had. The water tasted as if chemicals were in it. We had mgmt. ast. mgmt and waiters come to the table to explain that they know about it, however, not at one time did anyone offer something else vs. tap water. The water was so awful that it was frightful to drink. Our waiter was in a horrible mood and it was apparent from the moment he approached our table. At night's end he handed the bills to the men at our table and started to explain that he did not include the usual 20% gratuity. We have never had a waiter talk about the tip unless asked. The food was marginal at best to top it off. We had conversation with mgmt, they were gracious but the damage was done. It isn't somewhere we will return for a great meal in the future. Very disappointed.
Lon's is always superb! From your valet parker to the end of your meal there are few restaurants that measure up to Lon's. Wonderful wine list, creative menu, caring wait staff, and wonderful ambiance! We have never visited Scottsdale when we did not have a wonderful evening of dining at Lon's. Arrive early and enjoy a drink at their intimate bar. Ask to see their wine cellar or better yet plan an evening with friends and dine in the cellar. You will not regret an evening at Lon's.
We had the most amazing evening celebrating the birthdays of two dear friends. Our server, Kevin, and all of the wait staff were attentive, professional and personable. The food - salads, truffled mac and cheese, Shishito pepper, and entrees were fabulous. Best Shishitos in town. The complimentary birthday dessert was delicious. Cannot wait to return and sit on the fabulous outdoor patio when the weather cools down a bit.
I bring out of town visitors to Lon's for both business and personal meals and we are never disappointed. When Andrew greats us at the door, we know we'll be well taken care of. The food and cocktails are amazing and we will keep Lon's on our list for another meal again soon!
Lately, we are going to a lot of restaurants where we order at the counter and pick up our food when our number is called. This was a wonderful return to attentive service, excellent food, and charming atmosphere. It's just as wonderful now as it was when we first visited there about 20 years ago. We love to bring out-of-town guests because of the great patio and the Arizona vibe. We appreciated the seasonal menu.
Everything about our experience at Lon's was great. From the drinks and the meal, to the beautiful restaurant and top notch service, we really enjoyed ourselves. I really can't stress how great the service was. Deacon was very knowledgeable and attentive. I hadn't had service like that in some time... also the food was excellent! We can't stop talking about it. Thanks to everyone for putting together a fantastic night out for us.
Consistently delicious food at a reasonable price point, given the location, served in a quite pleasant environment. This visit was for Sunday breakfast. Both the eggs benedict and short rib hash were outstanding. Add a mimosa and a mule as beverages and it's quite a nice meal.
It is very quiet at lunch in August. Signage is challenging to figure out where to park. I love this restaurant for dinner but not so much for lunch. The amazing old Arizona environment is the best, the building is amazing, and the landscape is such a treat. Food was just average for lunch. Might need a new lunch menu.
Lon's is a beautiful restaurant with excellent service! Disappointed about the dinner though. Brunch is wonderful, but won't be back for dinner. For the price of the food I don't think it's worth the value. Our dinner was fine, but it should have been excellent. My halibut was overcooked and dry unfortunately. The ahi appetizer and squash blossoms were good. It's was a fine meal as mentioned, just didn't walk out feeling like we had an exceptional meal and have definitely had better. I think Lon's is really known for their brunch which is truly great. We'll be back on the patio for that.
Girlfriend brunch to celebrate a few birthdays - have been other times and this was a real disappointment!!! In one of the entrees the bacon and potatoes were totally burnt, the waiter forgot to put in a friends order so others were eating while she was waiting and it took 10-15 for the burger to arrive, side salads were really salty, had to try a few times to get the attention of the service staff for hot sauce and bloody mary's were overpriced essentially for a tall glass of ice with a small amount of beverage. If we come back will do it in the fall to enjoy the outside patio, but doubtful.
I had heard about the Hermosa Inn for years but had never gone. Now I feel foolish for having taken so long before going to this wonderful restaurant. It is nestled into Paradise Valley and is just beautiful. Food was outstanding. Their "on tap" Margaritas are better than most "hand crafted" versions be at local restaurants. The staff could not have been nicer. Our waiter was outstanding. We will be back...often!
The venue is unique; the service is excellent; the food is very fresh, flavorful and very well prepared; this is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy for a special occasion. My only criticism is that, even though they are entitled to earn a fair profit, charging $8 for a 12 oz. draft beer is more than a bit expensive. But, overall, a wonderful restaurant!
My family of four celebrated our son's 22nd birthday and as usual, the staff went out of their way to make it very special. Our server, Rachael was so friendly and well informed. The entire staff signed his birthday card and the chocolate "happy birthday" signed dessert plate was really appreciated. Our meals and beverages were outstanding too!
Lon's is our neighborhood fav. It's our go-to place whenever we have out of town guests as well.
