Truly 5 star food and service in a lovely quaint atmosphere. Chef Jean creates masterpieces with every dish. From the appetizers, soups and salads to the entrees, each spoonful is a wonderful creation of flavor. The staff is exceptionally friendly, especially Sari, the hostess. The service is excellent, always checking on us. Chef Jean took the time to come talk... More

Strolking downtown St. Augustine, we decided to try this "French" bistro. Big disappointment. We ordered the Pork Shank and the Poulet Au Gratin. To sum it up: 1. Very very very slow service with no explanation or apology...did the waiter forget to put in our order? 2. "French" atmosphere was not so French. If they would substitute the American rock... More

This is a slice of France in St. Augustine. Food and service were wonderful. The owner/chef came by to say hello and made us feel very welcome. My husband and son had the pork and and I ordered the chefs special. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We ate here last Friday and enjoyed our food and service was good so we decided to reserve a table for our last night of vacation tonight. What a disappointment . The wait staff were more interested in one another than serving the two occupied tables. The food was ok but nothing special and my husbands seafood pasta did not... More

This is a quaint little bistro that offer top quality food. We did lunch there. The sandwiches were excellent the mini salad that came with it was fresh and tasty. For desert we had a cherry cobbler that was a TRUE cobbler. Fresh, made right there still warm. No added gooey sugar just cherries and a really good pie crust.... More

We decided to try Bistro do Leon. It was the most amazing find. The food was exquisite. My filet melted in my mouth and was the perfect temperature. The... More

Great little bakery and restaurant we found for a late dinner in downtown St. Augustine. They have a nice selection of French favorites and Theresa and Ellis made us feel like guests of honor. The kids devoured the Chicken Au Gratin. A very nice alternative to the multitude of burger and sandwich spots in the area.

Well, my intention was just to stop in for a dessert, and check out the menu for a future visit. What can I say?- I'm a sweet freak. Walnut pear cobbler. Good stuff. Staff is very cool and welcoming. Jerelle waited on me as if I was having a meal, and was nice. Plan to go there for the whole... More

This restaurant serves real french dishes, but it's not fancy. When we were there, there were not many other patrons because it's summer and hot. We had good service, the food was very good but too much for us to eat even though we skipped the starter course and desert. We will eat there again, maybe for lunch or to... More
