Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Lion. You’ve done the world some good today.


Wow, great place. Loved the ambiance, and the staff, especially the hostess, were extremely welcoming. The food is a little pricey, but tasted great.

Called up and made a resie at the Lion and it wasn't half as bad as everyone claimed. We were given a 6:30pm seating time which I am sure is appalling for some, but given it was after work on a weekday, it suited us just fine. We arrived and had a drink and the dimly lit bar which around 6pm already had a nice crowd of good looking drinkers. We were seated in the dining room which is pretty small. They have a huge sk... view more
