My wife and I had the Grouper Francias which was rubbery and very fishy and was the worst "Grouper" we have eaten. We both are Native Floridians and know great fish and this fell very short. The manager needs to verify the origin and quality of the fish they serve.We were not offered a discount and my wife ate very... More

This is a very nice, not too casual restaurant. The menu is a little limited (to my taste) but the items I've tried were delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and they have live music too.

I started going to Leonardor's 706 in 1974 when they served the best pizza in town. Hands down the best I had ever had. Then, later it changed to an eclective restaurant serving the finest Italion menu that kept me returning to injoy the guest, the art and to my surprise the magician doing balloons and card tricks. A few... More

Salads are a treat, with lots of great toppings offered; pizza is above-average, drinks good. Prices seem a bit high (one pizza, one appetizer, 3 drinks = $100+). A good spot for occasions, but not the best value around.

This restaurant should be higher rated. The food was excellent, my husband and I both had fish. And my husbands martini with Gorgonzola olives was sublime. I had TWO Floridian drinks which were lip smackin' good. Great food at a great price. What more can you ask for?

Recently visited the restaurant during a Sunday Brunch. Food was good with a surprising variety. our table shared a pitcher of mimosas which was refreshing as well as the fruit punch served by the restaurant. The chef later came out to greet his guests which was a nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The French Toast is to die... More

I've eaten dinner here several times for convenience. I usually haven't had a wait for a table. Waiting for service is a different matter. More times than not I've had to ask if some one would take my order. The food is generous portions, on the bland side priced appropriately. The decor is dated, the crowd usually loud.

This a locally-owned favorite of mine. The interior could use updating but that's part of its charm. NIce front patio. A good variety on the menu, pasta dishes, fish, pizza, but I always get the surprisingly good surf and turf (petite filet and shrimp or scallops). Live music on certain nights, always of a good caliber. I just tried the... More

One of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. Leonardo's 706 is a great place to go with friends, for a business meeting or a class reunion. Everyone that I have referred there over the years always has great things to say about the food and the service. They have the best ceaser salad I've ever eaten and trust me I've tried... More
