The courtyard is a gorgeous setting with blooming flowers in all the planters, a view of the mountains, the adobe walls surrounding the patio and a stone fountain trickling water while you eat. The food was nothing less than amazing. Everything on the menu was uniquely wonderful. The staff was less than delightful; many very young people were running the... More

We had not visited Long in over a year. It was a sunny day so we were seated outside on the property. Service was excellent and menu selections terrific. I had a short rib pizza which was flavorful and tasty. My wife had a strawberry salad which was large. The ambiance and atmosphere was fabulous. Highly recommend for people having... More

Up until visiting Lon's, I was in love with El Choro. Both are similar, but I love the old world feel of Lon's. The landscaping and fountains are amazing. I would love to explore the grounds. Maybe sometime we'll have to book a room. We started our evening with cocktails inside, next to the fireplace. Then we moved out to... More

Lon's is a very good restaurant. The outdoor seating area is very special and a beautiful setting for dinner. Food was quite good and service was as well. A place for a special occasion or romantic dinner.

Fun atmosphere. Like a old western Phoenix plantation home/mansion. We had a private room for 21 of us. Service of appetizers while we stood and mingled was better than more high end business events. The chicken and waffles were the most surprising. Our room was like a large private library and cigar room. Very cozy and supportive of our event.... More

Hubby surprised me with a birthday dinner al fresco. What a stunning gem tucked away in Scottsdale. We had reservations at 6 and arrived early and were seated immediately. The heaters made a cool 70 degree desert evening very pleasant. I sat down to a birthday card from the staff! Our waiter, Rodrigo, was perfect...not pretentious at all, but rather... More

This restaurant bar is fun and serves good basic food. Breakfast is also served in this building for guests. We were fortunate to visit when a great resident guitar player was entertaining in the bar...a real treat.

The food is delicately prepared with great attention. The bar crowd is interesting and attractive. The outdoor setting, often with music, has a fountain and great heaters in the winter. Never a disappointment here. Our favorite place in Scottsdale or Phoenix.

The homemade ginger beer is the star of the mule at Lon's. It was spicy and added a depth of flavor to this wonderful cocktail served in a copper mug. Loved it. The restaurant is beautiful with lots of southwest touches. Loved the old photographs. Our server was friendly and attentive and gave good advice. We enjoyed the bread tray... More
