Had a great time! Wonderful wine selection and the food tasted so fresh. Had mussels, shrimp, and scallops. Our waiter was top-notch.
Always great, and especially now when it is so hard to run a full service restaurant. Highly recommend.
First visit. It sounded good and we looked forward to trying a new place with outdoor dining. The heavy rain changed our minds and we were able to get a table for the two of us inside when we arrived. Lyon Hall's menu includes French, German and American dishes. It is a cozy place with a very appealing ambience. It has one side for dining and another side for a crowded bar separated by a partial partition that includes thick glass. I am one of those diners who unfortunately can't filter out loud talkers or crowd noise so I was pleased to find that the partition was quite effective. We were both impressed and delighted with our mains, for her the Branzino, for me the Scallops and Shrimp. The wine served in a generous pour, was reasonably priced and of very good quality. The service was quite friendly, very helpful and really good. We booked a reservation at Lyon Hall based on the consistently high ratings on the Internet. It turned out to be an excellent choice and as good as its ratings say it is.
The hostess was acting very inconvenienced by my dinner reservation and made very snide remarks and was very rube. I work in retail management and have been a hostess at a restaurant before. Our server was wonderful though. Food was excellent, as usual!
Very turned off by the poor customer service of the hostess. I usually have wonderful experiences with every staff member at Lyon Hall in the 10 years I've been coming. Just thought you would appreciate the feedback.
As always, Lyon Hall delivered. Great experience at brunch. Not very full, which probably added to the good times.
very nice, little upscale, local area gen. decent outside dining area.
We reserved an outside table and were seated right away. Any noise (very little) came from the intersection nearby. The food was wonderful, as was the staff. Never rushed (although the restaurant was very busy). Highly recommend!
Eh, not the same place it was before the pandemic. They are trying. We want to support local businesses. But for two people to eat @ $150, I cannot say the quality of food or service was up to par by any means. Service was out of tempo and awkward. But we know they are at least trying. So I checked "yes" on recommend but you may need to adjust your expectations.
We sat outside and had a lovely server with a French accent. She was very attentive and personable. The moderate noise came from cars on the street, not the restaurant itself. The food was wonderful, as were the cocktails.
We made a reservation for 9:15pm on Sunday. Knowing that was going to be a little late for the servers we made our way to the bar. The drinks were great and the food was even better. Get the watermelon gazpacho and mussel pot! The new saffron and shrimp mussel pot was loved by my friend. We love the friendly ambience of Lyon Hall and noticed that even regulars at the bar were talking and laughing with each other.
Lyon Hall is great for yummy food and good service. Going on Sundays is great because parking is free! They have a nice big outdoor dining area now.
Understaffed so service was a little slow. Server was polite and professional though.
The escargot was different, and delicious! Steak fritte a very good rendition.
Server forgot an order (never put it in) and did nothing to fix the situation (ie discount or free meal?). Also told our group we were too loud but everyone around us was just as loud if not louder and she said nothing to their groups? I eat here all of the time and this was by far the worst experience I’ve ever had.
Extremely loud upstairs to point where waitress offered to move us. They seem to be understaffed. Service was inconsistent but clearly because wait staff were stretched servicing tables up and downstairs. Our waitress did her best snd made no excuses. Food good but came out all at once instead of in sequence. We rolled with it. Overall, would not come back again soon. This second time I’ve been seated upstairs and we couldn’t hear ourselves talk a foot away from each other.
One oyster was bad, as in toxic. Told the waiter but nothing came off the vill or attention from the manager.
Great service from Mark! Excellent food as always
Our waiter was fantastic! He makes our experience every time
Great place to catch up with friends! The ambient noise is quiet. The staff is friendly.
Overall, I had a wonderful time and the food was excellent. However, the Happy Hour Rose was not chilled. I was surprised because every other time I have gotten wine at Lyon Hall the wine is always at an appropriate temperature, sometimes with the glass even chilled.
Great food, great drinks, great service. Never a disappointment. Love this gem.
Great place to brunch.
Was served as well at a table by myself as all the other busy tables around me. Mark the server was pleasant but not overly chummy. Had a lovely glass of wine and delicious steak frites at an outdoor table on a lovely evening. Ignore the traffic going by… it’s all good!
Waiter service 5 of 10. Waiter seemed to have many tables assigned to him and seemed to be in hurry . Even though the restaurant didn’t seem full capacity.
Food was average to good ( I had fish and table had combination of steak and shrimp dish).
Mussel pot just not quite as fabulous as usual - but still a lovely night!
We love Lyon Hall and the servers are so nice!!!!
Always an excellent evening at Lyon Hall. The food is delicious, great drink options and a good kids menu...our daughter is a big fan of the kids pasta. Cannot recommend more highly.
Loved the new menu! The watermelon and feta salad was great, The whole table loved my summer risotto and kept wanting to eat mine! My husband loved the salmon and my son loved the short ribs. The cauliflower is always a hit! Service was great!
Great meal as always! This was our third visit to Lyon Hall because the food and service is fantastic.
Had another delish birthday lunch at Lyon Hall. Always consistently good - and love their bread - so fresh. I only go about 4 or 5 times a year. I would go to Lyon Hall more often if it was a short walking distance to my home - but alas not quite close enough for weekly. My favourite consistently good restaurant in Arlington. Keep it up Lyon Hall - love your food.
We love Lyon Hall. Bronzini was excellent
Fabulous food and excellent service! we enjoyed eating outside too.
This is our favorite Clarendon restaurant - consistently good food and good service. Definitely recommended!
The overall experience was excellent! I went with family who are notorious for being critical of dining experiences and they were blown away by the quality of food and food pairings. Their only complaint was that one of our plates got snatched away right as she lifted her last bite to her mouth which made her feel a little rushed but otherwise a great experience and I imagine we will be returning soon!
We chose Lyon Hall because it was available later in the evening after a movie. So glad we did. Great meal and service. So many wonderful dishes on the menu, it was hard to choose. Decided on the grilled branzino. It was delicious.
Love Lyon Hall but they need to train their servers. Once again, ours seemed completely disinterested in doing his job. Not a smile, not a welcoming comment, not cordial at all. I think he's in the wrong line of business (i.e., hospitality).
So good. Plenty of time to talk. Food delicious! Good choice of wines. Specials were scrumptious
Great food, sat outside but it was a bit loud due to sitting right under a speaker. Hosts kindly reseated us after we were seated in the sun on a hot day. Service was very good.
Food is amazing, excellent service! Hoping to enjoy another meal there soon!
We enjoyed a Father's Day Brunch at Lyon Hall yesterday and it was fantastic. We are regulars and it was great to see the place hopping and firing on all cylinders. We started out, as usual for brunch, with the Mimosa "Kit" which satisfied us throughout the meal. The server quickly responded to our daughter's request for a Shirley Temple.
The beignets were a great starter with the cherry sauce for dipping. Crusty French bread was as delicious as always. Our six year old typically orders the Mussels vin blanc, but yesterday ordered 8 shrimp cocktail. They were optimal for a raw bar experience. Large and super fresh. I ordered my customary mushroom omelette and greens. It was cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed his salad with steak tips. We topped it off with delicious ice cream.
Service was warm and prompt and our food was served very quickly.
Overall, the wonderful Lyon Hall experience that we know and love.
