Lon's at the Hermosa Review

In an adobe hacienda hand-built by cowboy artist Lon Megargee, this romantic spot has sweeping vistas of Camelback Mountain and the perfect patio for after-dinner drinks under the stars. Megargee's art and cowboy memorabilia decorate the dining room. The menu changes seasonally and includes appetizers like Kobe beef carpaccio and foie gras. Wood-grilled Kobe New York strip, and more-exotic dishes like roasted duck breast with duck confit and gnocchi, are main-course options. Phoenicians love the weekend brunch.

    3rd Time - Not a Charm

    After having had two wonderful lunches at Lon's in recent years, our recent dinner experience was a bit disappointing. First of all, Lon's is perhaps the most beautiful restaurant you will ever find, with the greatest outdoor dining patio anywhere. It wasn't easy to get a reservation. After being served a flat glass of Champaigne (which I sent back), we found the food to be mediocre. We tried the Pre Fixe dinner. Crab enchiladas that were skimpy and bland. A good entre of short ribs, followed by a $20 (estimated) chocolate fondue for two - a meager pile of cut up fruit and a small bowl of chocolate sauce - the presentation was terrible. I'm crossing Lon's off my list. Also - a word to 20-something waiters, when you recommend a $100+ bottle of wine as if you were the world's greatest wine expert, it sounds really stupid.

    Lon's at the Hermosa Review

    Made the mistake of eating here on 10/24. Hostess and maitre de set the tone wrong with their completely haughty and unwelcoming approach when we arrived. Acted like they were doing us a big favor by letting us eat there. Wine list is extensive but outrageously overpriced. We selected a good bottle (90 points WS) and when we asked the self-labeled "wine guy" about it, he said, "I actually can drink that." A snobby comment. Food was completely uninspired and pedestrian. Nothing special here. Service fair, pace was bad between courses - long waits. Had a meal the night before at T Cooks -it was extremely better in every single category. Lon's gets by on it's nice patio setting. The food is average at best. Go to T Cooks instead.
