Wonderful French-style seafood dishes, my husband loved his seafood crepe and I loved the seafood Bouillabaisse. Staff was attentive on this Sunday evening, food arrived hot and delicious after acceptable wait for cooked-to-order.

Wanted to love this place. Alas, 'twas not to be. The lack of communication between the servers was obvious. Immediately after we sat, "Are you ready to order?" "Ummmm, we just sat down, how about some drinks?" The menu lacks imagination. Ordinary faux French bistro fare. When the food finally arrived, the order was incomplete. No "the rest of your... More

The food was very good, we had small issue with the Onion soup, Since the recipe was from the Lyon region, a bit different, so the Chef came out, explaining the difference and offer us the cauliflower soup, he was preparing, it was delicious, all the food we order was very good.Service was slow. Good atmosfere.

We've been coming to this restaurant every time we're in St. Augustine for the last four years. The food is consistently excellent, providing you're willing to listen to the recommendations of your server. The service is attentive, but the kitchen is slow. So if you've got time, and are willing to wait awhile for your food, and you're willing to... More

Got into town late and wanted something French and relaxed... Wow - really fit the bill! Enjoyed Escargot, Crab Bisque and an incredibly rich Pork Shank with mashed potato (my bf had Seared Ahi tuna) and we split a bottle of Bordeaux ($30 for French red? Bargain!). Service was good and people-watching as everyone walked by made it even more... More

We were there on a busy night right before thanksgiving. Not only was the service horrible, the food was a massive disappointment (see the picture of the pasta dish, swimming in oil) and we ended up waiting more than 1 hour for our food to arrive. Granted, the restaurant was busy but it was obviously ill equipped to deal with... More

My wife and I decided to try this little French cuisine restaurant with one of our coupons from our resort site. The lighting was brighter than most places the walls were bland at not appealing; and it was late about 7:30pm and only two other tables had customers. We were approached late by a staff member by the standards of... More

My wife and I always had a good experience with Bistro. The last time we were there we had the filet with green peppercorn and it was fantastic. Service was terrific and we were attended by multiple servers. This time the server seemed indifferent as to whether we were there or not. I overheard the server telling another table that... More

Returning after several years, we still enjoyed Bistro de Leon for its authentic French Bistro offering which makes it distinctive among this city's numerous restaurants. But the overbearing service style took something away from the experience this time. Our server effectively talked us out of two of our menu choices - one on the reasonable grounds that the chef would... More
