    Excellent food and wine list. I recommend the beet salad, Thai curry mussels, and the crispy sea bass (if you dine on Wednesdays). Patio was nice, but a little noisy. Interior is very cute. Service was friendly and the table was always cleared promptly.

    We've been here dozens of times over the years. Love the food. Patio is great. Just be aware that if you get a bottle of one of the wines sold by the glass, it does NOT qualify for the 1/2 price bottle promotion ON Sundays. We feel we were misled by the hostess on this and it was an issue - albeit resolved in our favor - when it came time to pay.

    Very good menu, food prepared perfectly too. Service was a little slow due to the crowd, but otherwise okay. Been here quite a few times and each time have been very happy with the experience. The menu is reasonably priced and offers good variety. The atmosphere is comfortable with lots of light from large windows. A great place for a quiet dinner for two or a more energetic dinner with a larger party of friends/family. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Excellent food - Scallops were cooked perfectly as were the accompanying squash; my wife loved the Bronzino. For dessert the Chocolate Pot de Creme -- amazing! Service was friendly and efficient -- will definitely be back when we are in town.

    I've been here many times. The food is always excellent. It is uncomplicated and wonderfully prepared. The octopus app was perfectly grilled. Tuna tartare, medium size chunks of tuna. Nice and simple. Let the taste of the fresh delicious tuna come through. Steak Frites, cooked rare with a nice sear. Excellent flavor.

    Only complaint about this gem are the drinks. I had an Old Fashion that appeared as of the bottle of Makers was waived over the glass. The second one was slightly better but still substantially substandard. They could really work on making drinks correctly. Start by larger ice cubes so that the cocktail doesn’t appear as is it is 99% water. The waitress wasn’t any help in correcting the issue.

    Lyon Hall was a great dining experience. The food was amazing! Order the beignets-they are awesome. My friends and I ate outside. The flowers, herbs and other plants by the door and around the restaurant are beautiful. The coffee had great flavor-not bitter and super hot. They made accommodations for my special diet needs. Sean sat us at a great table, convenient for my friends who have mobility issues. He checked on us to make sure our dining experience was great. I will return to Lyon Hall and recommend it to others! Thanks for taking great care of us.

    Firstly - great service and I love Lyon Hall but unfortunately something must have been off with the food as very sorry to say had a very upset stomach that afternoon which seemed to be food related. Might have been the sauce on the salmon benedict. Not sure. Usually Lyon Hall is excellent.

    Girls brunch during restaurant week but we weren’t offered restaurant week specials. Food was great per usual. Lyon Hall is one of our favorites. But service wasn’t the usual. I’m guessing they were short staffed.

    We visited Lyon Hall first time and we liked it. Food, service, ambiance was great. Only issue, we had that cocktail servings are too small for it’s price. We had to switch to bear after first seeing as cocktails were not price worthy. Overall, great experience

    An absolutely fabulous meal and overall experience! I rate Lyon Hall as one of my Top 5 restaurants! Have never had a bad meal or even a bad component of a meal!. The Beef Wellington and Steak Frites were so tender that we could cut with our forks! The Escargot appetizer was sublime. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough! First Class all the way!

    Lyon Hall is always an excellent dining experience, and this evening was no different. The restaurant made their entire menu available for the Summer 2022 Restaurant Week promotion (with a minor upcharge for about 1/4-1/3 of the menu items - quite understandable given the ingredients). We requested an outdoor table and were seated at the curb along the side street which didn't provide for the quietest setting but was perfectly acceptable. Service was professional and just attentive enough. Glad to see Lyon Hall is going strong after emerging from the pandemic.
