Had heard about Lon's from my sister, as her family has gone there for years. Went to a Friday night dinner during AZ Restaurant Week. The grounds are beautiful, in that old, west, cowboy sort of way. Lots of vegetation, trees, cacti, etc. Plenty of...More

So many lovely photos of Lon's, the perfect patio restaurant, but hard to capture the beauty of arriving with all of the flowers in bloom (in March!), and the serene patio setting. The food was really good, but on the pricey side, and drinks were...More

Something changed since our last visit some years ago. Food was expensive, just average quality and portions small. Everybody at our table had the same assessment.

Description
There’s a reason why LON’s at The Hermosa Inn is rated as one of Paradise Valley’s top restaurants. We seek out the region’s freshest ingredients and prepare them with age-old cooking traditions—roasting, smoking, wood-grilled—combined with cutting-edge trends. The result? Globally inspired Arizona cuisine, with our popular Himalayan Salt Seared Ahi Tuna, served with cilantro, pickled onion, and ceviche sauce, as a prime example. A new Chef’s Tasting Menu is offered each week, and our expert sommelier is always on-hand to recommend the perfect wine pairings.
