Absolutely the best seafood in Kent County, maybe further.

Been there several times and am just reviewing it. Often go before or after theater downtown. I've never had any entrée other than seafood because it's so well prepared and presented.bwine list is extensive and expensive, I'd stick with vodka.

We relocated from Bistro Bella Vita to Leo's to find a quieter spot to conduct some business dinner discussions and we were glad we did. Although the menu at Bistro Bella Vita was very impressive I will definitely go back on my next trip to GR. There were seven of us so we elected to eat at a large high... More

The lobster shrimp in a remoulade were perfect. Stuffed with fresh large chunks of seafood with little breading. Perfectly cooked and the amount just right. I paired it with the asparagus soup which was light and flavorful. The freshness of asparagus was a surprise since it's not asparagus season here in Michigan. The only thing I didn't like was the...

In town for a meeting. Trip advisor reviews are spot on. Scallops were wonderful and the lobster bisque was the best ever. Wish we had room for dessert. Hope to go back again.

Dine at Leo's probably twice per year. On our last visit, the entrees were very good. My scallops were outstanding. Our waitress was new, but very affable and competent. Will continue to dine here at least a couple times per year. Have yet to be disappointed.

Noted for seafood, but menu is quite vary Ride! Awesome soups, lamb chops, steaks, etc. The service is excellent! Top shelf cocktails. Desserts definitely worth the calories! Impeccable plate presentation.

Great fresh seafood; seasonal menu. Great desserts made by pastry chef on site vs. frozen, pre-packaged. Staff very knowledgeable about wine pairings.

The food is tasteful, presented appealingly. The staff is well informed and attentive.Seafood is excellent. My only problem is that there is not much variety if I don't feel like fish/seafood. And I really enjoy the ambiance. One of my favorites.

Choice of dining experience is available, seated at formal tables or on high tops in the bar, which is a very comfortable atmosphere with attentive and professional but relaxed waitresses/waiters. Food is really high end and reliably good. Lovely atmosphere in either formal or informal areas. Owner is onsite and really cares. The fish is really good and I'm really... More

I've always liked the food at Leo's. I can always count on a great meal with great service. Probably the best seafood in West Michigan. My only complaint is that the decor and atmosphere are a bit stuffy. I like the atmosphere better at Charley's Crab, for example, but the food at Leo's is consistently better.
