I'd been reading all the hype about this Sunday Brunch and finally made my way across that side of town for it. The buffet wasn't at all what I expected. Way more "lunch" options than "breakfast" foods. The buffet menu was creative, but maybe a little too creative. It would have been nice to have a couple normal options with... More

Went to Leonardo's with a friend for a get together dinner. The food was very good with big portions. We got a bottle of wine for dinner with the server's help.

I find 706 inconsistent, although I am more often pleased than not. The brunch is excellent WHEN it is kept filled. Salmon, lox, blintzes, fried polenta, adult mac and cheese, and hunter's chicken are some of my favorites. I think the asian dishes are incongruous, but they are well executed.But once, after I raved to an out-of-town guest, 706 apparently... More

They often have live jazz combos play during the week, and they're always wonderful. Great food, too!

This family-owned restaurant is terrific! From pizza to lush Italian fare, it is not to be missed when visiting this area! Service is super and the food is out of this world yummy! Comfortable for families and perfect for a date night! If you're lucky you will meet the owners, too! Wonderful.

I had heard very good things about Leonardo's 706's brunch, but it exceeded my expectations. I'm not really much of a brunch enthusiast, but I had such a pleasant experience I have gone back several times.

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant. Both times the food was very good as the service was the same. I had the blackened Tuna and it was prepared perfectly. All the food was great the drinks were good and I had very good experiences both time. My only negative point on this rest. is ascetically... More

I scheduled a graduation dinner with Rich in February 2015 only to find out on May 7, 2015 he double booked the room and told me we could not have our celebration. Now I'm stuck finding a place for 30 family members to celebrate our son's graduation from Medical School. I don't live in Gainesville so I 'm using Trip... More
