The oysters were fresh, cool and absolutely wonderful. The steak tartare what’s perhaps the worst I’ve ever eaten.
Tables needs to be odour free service needs to be more quick
service was great the server ask me if i wanted my salad first
Service was impeccable. The server was attentive and very friendly. She was a delight. The food was delicious. Will certainly come again.
I had high expectations. I came here for brunch twice and and was delighted. Excited to go to dinner… then I went. Perhaps it was a bad night for the kitchen. But spending $132 for the meal (A couple appetizers, two glasses of wine, two entree, one dessert) not including a 26% tip for a charming server. It may be my last visit to this place. I can’t blame her for the kitchen or lack of support staff .
The mussels while satisfying. I recommend the Chef visit Granville Moor’s on H Street in DC, taste the difference between a flavorful base, and what is served.
Short Rib… looked nice, not exactly a demi-glace rich sauce, it could have been braised longer to bring out that natural beauty…
Ordered a side dish of brussels sprouts.. Hands down the Worst brussels sprouts I’ve ever had, smelly, overcooked, I thought I was in silver diner.
Crème brûlée… I assumed the would use a vanilla bean, vanilla bean paste… clearly just extract no specks of vanilla bran.. Petty? it lacked a creamy texture… mouthfeel was just not there. Maybe change it to Pot de Créme, give us a richer flavor than vanilla pudding .
Does this restaurant have too many menu choices to make quality foods? I got there after the rush maybe the kitchen was still recovering from an overwhelming Saturday evening… not enough side staff to water glasses.
The price left me truly disappointed for a French Bistro…. I took a friend who had no clue about French cuisine… now I have to take my friend somewhere that will surprise.
The oysters and saffron shrimp mussels were great! The short rib, not so much.
Service was subpar. We didn’t mind because we were catching up, but the waitress wasn’t very attentive. Never got water refills, kind of rushed us along to order. Love the restaurant and the vibe just consistently disappointed in the wait staff.
We went for our anniversary and it was such a lovely experience. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. The food was amazing - I got the special of coq au vin blanc and my husband got the steak frites which were both delicious. We also got the pretzel to start and it came with 3 sauces which were so good. We got the fruit galette for dessert which was a great end to an amazing dinner. Highly recommend! Will definitely come back in the future.
Excellent service & very much appreciate ability to make reservations for Outdoor seating.
Despite being Sunday and peak brunch hours, the service was IMMACULATE. We placed our order and like in less than 5 min our server came with our food — we both work in restaurants and were really impressed at the speed. Food was delicious as well. Definitely will come back!
Very good food. Friendly service. Good to see that this place is not suffering from any staff shortage like most restaurants at this time. We will be back.
There's only one way to truly judge a restaurant: was the quality of the food worth the cost? Unfortunately, I would emphatically say it wasn't.
Great oysters and mussels. The dinner entrees were delicious too.
fun place to sip cappuccinos on the sidewalk, very attentive service, food is fine but doesn’t knock your socks off.
We love Lyon Hall but have found it to be excessively noisy on a number of visits. We’ll still come back for the food though.
Never disappoints! They do a great job with brunch and I like that there are other non-brunch options on the menu for those that want a burger.
Lyon Hall provided a friendly ambiance, efficient service, and excellent food. I plan to return.
It was a beautiful night to sit outside and enjoy dinner on an early autumn evening. The food was excellent and the service attentive.
Was nice atmosphere. Enjoy the visit.
As soon as we hit the front door, the hostess happily greeted us. She couldn't have been nicer and her great attitude showed. Our waitress was the same. Everyone, including the busboys, were very attentive . Perfect customer service.
When it came to the food, we got a bunch of apps and only ordered one entree for the four of us. The apps were large portions and with only oredering one entree it was still too much food. However, it was all very very good. We've NEVER had a bad meal or experience here!
The muddled strawberry, basil cocktail and French toast were scrumptious!
Food was absolutely wonderful! The escargots, steak tartare and bouillabaisse were delicious. Outstanding service and great ambience. Reasonably priced and worth the money.
Had a nice dinner and drinks there. Food tastes really good and everything else was perfect as well. Nice atmosphere. Definitely will go back =]
The staff at Lyon Hall was excellent. Very kind and accommodating. We went for brunch and started with the beignets, which unfortunately seemed to be cooked in oil that was too hot as they were dark on the outside but slightly underdone inside. I also had the eggs benedict was was good, but slightly too heavy for my taste and I was unable to finish it.
Always a great menu, expertly prepared and professionally served.
My wife and I are long time patrons of Lyon Hall. Lately, the quality of food and service have fallen. What a shame, Lyon Hall had been so good for so long.
A bit odd that the croissants aren’t toasted with the eggs Benedict which made the dish lackluster and they were served cold. Coffee is always good. Waiter was missing in action.
Great outdoor patio. Service was great. Food was delicious.
Sidewalk dining was safe and pleasant, and the food was excellent.
I've been here many times with friends and family, and it is always good! Outside seating is nice with good weather and usually quiet. Food is delicious and staff is always nice. Definitely recommend making a trip over. Easy walk from the metro.
The outdoor seating at Lyon Hall is very nice, it’s entertaining to see people around walking while we enjoy our dinner. We had branzino and hanger steak which were both good, but didn’t stand out given the price. The warm sourdough baguette was actually the highlight for us. Overall, it’s a great place for a date night
Enjoyed the oysters and good beer menu, very nice and efficient staff, will go again soon.
prompt and attentive service;
pleasantly surprised by complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary;
excellent bread basket.
The not so good:
mediocre food, e.g., roasted beet salad promised beets, goat cheese, mache, pistachio and vinaigrette; it came without cheese or pistachios and beets weren’t roasted; insipid vegetarian risotto, and pork schnitzel neither thin nor well breaded;
a hassle to find parking;
noise level high enough to inhibit conversation.
Ravioli was overpriced and tasted like it was cooked from frozen. Steak was bland- service was fair at best. This place used to be excellent maybe it was an off night…
It was very good but I thought the menu was more limited than the last time - long time ago, pre-covid - but it could be I remember it differently. A good time though
Great place to go for dinner or brunch. Great beer and wine. Love this place and will definitely come back.
