A bit loud, but my family and I still had a very good time. The food was excellent.
Excellent spot with great french/german inspired menu with offerings you can't get anywhere else in the immediate area. Food is always excellent and never disappoints
Had dinner there with my aunt, who has hearing difficulties. Both of us loved the food, and she was able to hear the conversation without any difficulties even though the restaurant was busy. Overall would highly recommend.
The 3 of us enjoyed 3 different entrees. Service was excellent. Appreciated not being rushed.
Meet up at Lyon Hall for a birthday dinner before bar hopping in Arlington. Great time! Good food and very friendly staff!
Lyon Hall is always a great go-to for good food, drink and service. I appreciate that they have happy hours even on weekends.
We went for a family brunch. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The donuts were outstanding. As was the French toast. I don’t recommend omelet - it was so salty as to be inedible. It was $25pp without drinks. Which I find expensive.
Always enjoyable. The food was great and that is to expected. We went to see the World Cup finals and it was the perfect place for brunch and a soccer match. See you guys next time!
Celebrated the evening before a holiday with a bunch of friends. Great fun! Great food! Great service!
If I could give the food and service six stars, I would. Highly recommend.
We usually enjoy our neighborhood restaurant, but tonight the food was a bit off. One dinner found huge garlic cloves in her mussels that caused a bit of bitterness in the broth. Another did not feel well after eating the duck. Just an off night for us or the kitchen.
Good brunch. Well organized menu with just enough choices. Steak frites excellent, and the doughnuts are fun, if bland. Bacon could be thicker and more interesting.
The atmosphere at Lyon Hall was very nice...the seating was a little too crowded for me. The food and service was excellent. I will return.
For the number of times that we've eaten at Lyon Hall, it's never a bad meal.
We went for $1 oyster night and it was great. Just great solid food and service all around.
The restaurant is good, food is great. The only thing that I’d complain is that it took long to bring the food
Hostess was incredibly rude and uncommunicative with refusal to seat a reservation a few minutes early with 10+ tables open both in and out of restaurant, food was ok but poorly seasoned, overall probably won’t be coming back for a future special event
Would probably recommend. had a much better experience the last time I went. This time, it was Father's Day. The Hosts at the Front entrance were poor. Although there were available tables and we had a reservation, we waited 10 minutes to be seated. I have a physical infirmity and use a walker - the hostess seating us didn't want to give us a table on the main level - although I explained I had trouble walking and couldn't do stairs. She insisted we go upstairs, noting there was an elevator. We took the elevator - it was a service elevator and dirty and there was something wet on the floor - I could have slipped and injured myself further.
Called a day before our reservation to let them know we had a vegan in our group and ask if they could accommodate special diets. Was told yes, just ask the server for the menu with special diet options. We asked after being seated and were told there was no such menu. They said the chef could make a quinoa avocado salad, which was fine but was just the appetizer salad with a little bit of red quinoa on top and guacamole spooned on the side and really not a full meal. I would’ve appreciated just being told on the phone that they would only be able to do a side salad; we could’ve found somewhere else that had options. Otherwise the food was fine, and the outdoor seating was nice.
Thanks for a great Father’s Day brunch!!!
As usual, Lyon Hall is always a great place to eat, hang out, whatever. Bonus: sitting outside is such a great place to be too.
Service is great and food is delicious....awesome for Father's day brunch (and everything else)
Both the tuna and steak tartare are absolutely fantastic. Our steak came out medium instead of rare+, but they fixed it and it was fantastic. The mixed drinks are also really good, will definitely being going back again.
Mussels were in a wonderful saffron sauce with shrimp. However some were not as fresh as I would have expected. Otherwise would have rated them a 5.
Great service and food. Absolutely a repeat winner
Good meal and good service.
Nice casual local restaurant in Arlington. We were glad to have a reservation as the room was packed and buzzing on a Saturday night. The Thai mussels were terrific. Decent wine selection. Good friendly service.
Love this place! A Clarendon gem!
Food is delicious. Great service.
The tuna tartare and mussels were great!! And the chocolate mousse delivered “on the house” for my birthday was a delicious surprise!! Great evening.
Noise level was high because we chose to sit outside.
Service was excellent.
We love Lyon hall always a great experience
Great food and service. A pretty expansive menu and all items executed very well.
The service was VERY slow and the servers did not seem to care. There was no attempt to compensate for the problem. It took a long time to get bread. We decided not to order dessert because we thought it would take too long. The service marred what would otherwise have been a positive experience with good food and a nice ambience.
The mussels were outstanding! My salad was fresh, asparagus a little pricey but looked great. Look forward to going back because there were many items on the menu I would like to try. Bread and butter melted in you mouth. Wine and beer selections nice. The down side. Sevice was not good. Waiter seemed totally disinterested but he was servicing a lot of tables. We ate outside which lacked ambiance. Only 1 or 2 flower pots. Nothing on the tables except the essentials. No special forks or spoons to eat the mussels. No toasted bread to soak up the very tasty sauce. Most diners are young, late 20s and 30s. Happy Hour menu is a good value and lasts until 7! I'll definitely give Lyons Hall another try.
We had high hopes for Lyon Hall based on other reviews, but it was a pretty average place. The food, while good, relied heavily on oil and salt for flavor. The portions were well sized, neither too much nor too little, and the presentation was nice. Service-wise, we were 10 minutes with nothing at all and then another 20 minutes with only water, and it is possible that the situation only changed because we chased down the server and asked for her to just bring "everything." There was a good selection of wines and beers, though our experience it that you might wait a while so don't show up thirsty like we did. Given the numerous other dining options we feel no need to return but wouldn't reject if a friend wanted to go there.
Great dinner with an old friend.,food and service were excellent.steak and our schnitzel were wonderful. House-made sorbet was outstanding!
Our second time eating a Lyon Hall and it was as positive as the first. Excellent food and drinks - I would highly recommend it. A wonderful Belgian-style restaurant - and I lived in Belgium for two years.
Luncheon after anArlington burial. Excellent food and very nicely staff. We will definitely return when in DC. Thank you!
We enjoyed our dining al fresco, although there was a little street noise. The food was great and the service was exceptional!
Smoked salmon was quite terrible quality (and far too thick cut) but otherwise fine brunch.
Great food - wow service. Good at first but waited ages to order dessert and then get dessert.
The service was terrible. It was so slow for only having about 12 people in the whole place. We sat right next to the service area and got to listen to the employees stand around and talk about how hung over they were instead of working. We were given dirty glasses twice (after the first time they should have checked). I had to ask two different hostes for our check because our waiter disappeared. It took us almost an hour and a half for breakfast.
