"Went on a Fridayu; no problems, seated outdoors immediately. Nice to be off the street and in a patio like area. Food was very good; excellent beer and wine selection. Service seemed to be in 'learning curve' mode. Server seemed a little befuddled; flubbed one drink order. Assume she was recent grad and this may have been first job."

Lyon Hall is a modern bistro serving approachable Alsatian-inspired fare, including an extensive selection of house-made charcuterie and sausages. The menu changes with the season to highlight fresh produce from local farms, as do the pastries, desserts and fresh bread.The affordable wine list focuses on French selections, while the impressive beer list offers an extensive selection of European drafts and bottles. Located in an historic art deco building in the heart of downtown Clarendon, Lyon Hall is a vibrant neighborhood spot with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Perfect for an elegant dinner in the stylish dining room, frankfurters and beer flights with friends at the lively bar, or enjoying a warm evening on the patio with a bottle of wine and selections from the dynamic cheese menu. The private room located in our mezzanine level offers a great spot for small to medium size groups enjoying a private meal or cocktail reception.

"I'd be Lyon' if I had bad things to say about Lyon Hall. Great draft beer selection, and a very helpful server who seemed to like and suggest special craftbrew offerings. Also, what's not to like about a giant soft pretzel the size of a Volkswagen?! All the food was excellent. It's a bit noisy and, being a Friday evening, crowded, but we had a reservation and got seated immediately. Terrific meal."

St. Arnold’s is a popular Cleveland Park mussel restaurant. A must is the mussels cooked in duck fat.

"Vidalia's food has always been spectacular. Their sweetbreads on waffles is one of the tastiest things ever. But service was slow and white wine should have been better chilled."
