Have you been to Columbus Hospitality Group’s new restaurant, Bar Lyon? We have been anticipating its arrival for quite some time since our dad is French. It seems that French restaurants come and go in this city, and it can be difficult to find a good bistro with affordable fare.
A month ago, Matt and I finally got to try Bar Lyon. I had made a reservation a few weeks earlier, which I’d recommend doing as its been a popular spot. (It’s easy to make reservations through Resy on their website here.)
Right off the bat, I loved the ambiance of Bar Lyon. It has a true bistro feel with plush leather benches and tables close together. We had already perused the menu at home, so we had a good idea of the dishes we hoped to try. Since I can’t eat dairy at the moment, I knew I would have to talk to the waiter to see what would work given my dietary restriction.
Our waiter was so nice. He checked with the kitchen, and they were able to make most of the dishes work for me. It was so nice to have so much choice!
Matt and I shared the P.E.I. Mussels to start and tasted incredibly fresh and delicious. We then each ordered the Bavette Steak with fries. The fries were insanely good. I think they had some garlic on them, so they felt a little different without being too different.
Unfortunately, none of the desserts could be made without dairy, so we skipped dessert. Matt and I were both incredibly satisfied with our meal, and can’t wait to go back again soon.
