    Wow! Can’t believe we haven’t tried this place sooner! My husband and I went for thanksgiving. It was our first without kids and family as we are new to the area. We decided to go out and this place was absolutely phenomenal. It was fun to see people walking in for take out and seeming the be regulars by how the staff created them. Our meal and cocktails were superb. We will definitely be coming back!

    We had another excellent experience at Lyon Hall. Camillo, our server, helped make our Thanksgiving outing memorable, because he was attentive, warm, knowledgeable, and worked well with his teammates to assure we received outstanding service. Our meals--the Turkey plate and the Duck plate--were delicious. Hats off to the chefs and cooks this day. The front of the house and kitchen staff were on their game! The one single negative note was the bar/bartender, because the glasses for our two Old Fashion cocktails were VERY sticky. The bartender did very well with the cocktails, but clearly was careless in pouring/prepping. Camillo noticed my attempts to clean my hands and immediately brought us an extra glass of water and napkin for me to wipe my hands. When ordering the second cocktail, Camillo said he would note this to the bartender, but there was no change. The the second glass was as sticky if not worse than the first; I needed to go to the restroom to wash my hands. Not fun to try to eat dinner with sticky fingers after holding your cocktail glass. I request that the bartender be made aware of this comment, please, because this was the only negative in an otherwise very positive experience.

    My date arrived before me. I was right on time and found a parking spot in front. Incredibly lucky. It’s a cozy setting. Small table but she chose the bench and I had the chair. Ordered onion soup 6 oysters and scallops. She had Salmon. The food was better than average. In fact it tasted good and the soup was hot. The service was ok but twice they tried to take the plate with my last oyster. Don’t do that. But I enjoyed it as did my date.

    Lyon Hall is consistently one of the best restaurants in the DMV area. Its food is unparalleled along with its service and the friendliness of staff. I try and go at least once a month because it is always one of my top choices along with friends of mine as well. I had my 30th birthday party here, and additionally I’ve taken members of my family and friends and family to eat here because of its impressive lineup of food and unmatched quality. Each time I cannot wait to come back. Everything is excellent, and I would highly recommend this to anyone in the area visiting or local.

    Excellent outdoor experience. Because the weather was chilly, the hostess gave us fur to sit on, blankets to warm us, and the heat lights. Wonderful. We had two dogs and I kept forgetting to ask for water for them and it was never offered. The branzino was incredible. It’s actually hard for me to order anything else bc it’s so stellar. Potato soup — the best my friend says she’s ever had — and the burger delicious for her hubby. I had forgotten the French overtones of this restaurant so may not eat here often since I am gluten free. But excellent selection otherwise with nightly specials.

    Service was great... water glasses were never empty. The Mussels Fumees were delicious, just sad that I'm gluten free and can't have the baguette to mop up that lovely sauce. Without bread to accompany the mussels and the steak tartare are both on the acidic side, but that's due to my dietary restrictions - not on them. My companion ordered the potato soup and it was also gluten free when they don't put the croutons on it, and it was served steaming hot, much to her delight. Looking forward to my next meal there.

    Celebrated my Dad’s birthday and the restaurant brought out a dessert with a candle and sang him Happy Birthday. It was early on. Sunday morning, and the restaurant was not crowded and it was easy to hear others when talking. The food was average - not terrible but also not mind blowing.

    Came here for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Food was good, not great, service was the same. Ambiance isn’t all that good, all you see outside is the street and side walk. The tables are also pretty close so It’s hard not to eavesdrop on others nearby or worry that they’re doing the same to you. Bathroom layout is super strange, the men and women can see one another washing hands. The pricing was very fair and I enjoyed my meal but everything was just “fine” and it wasn’t anything to write home about. Am I happy I tried it? Yes. Would I come here again? Probably not.

    Service is always great here. Happy Hour wine delicious. Lamburger would have been great but my request for medium turned out to be medium well. I should have sent it back. Sauce and fries were delish. Oysters, albeit small, delish. Husband's bronzino, delish. His onion soup, very good. We shall return.
