Steak was perfection

I have had steaks at many places and was disappointed many times on their preparation...BUT LEUNIG'S prepared the PERFECT MEDIUM RARE! I can't say enough good things on the chef's preparation. The wine list was wonderful and the prices on many were very good. One disappointment, which is the... read more

Second visit as good as the first. Very interesting menu, with a first-rate choice of Vermont cheeses and charcuterie, many precisely correct bistro items–onion soup, pistou soup, crudites with a white bean dip, steak frites, etc etc–on offer. And perfectly prepared. The best value for money is the "Bistro Dinner", served in the afternoon until 5:30PM, consisting of a soup... More

We dine out a lot and recently used our 2 for 1 card at Leunig's. The place was bustling at 5 pm. We had out usual vodka martini's, well vodka, very dry with a twist. They were perfect and a bargain at $6 in downtown Burlington. My wife had the Cranberry Crusted Salmon which was excellent. I had the bourride... More

We had dinner at this restaurant on Monday, March 23rd. My sister and I ordered the Steak Frites - both ordered it "MEDIUM RARE" - and my son ordered the Bourride Setoise. I also had a glass of Valpolicella wine (the 9 oz serving). Both mine and my sister's steak were overdone... Hers was actually WELL DONE, while mine was... More

We stumbled upon this place and found it very quaint. The server, who detected our Southern accents, was from Georgia, which was a pleasant surprise. The food was DIVINE, the filet cooked a perfect medium. We werent going to have dessert, as it was my mom's birthday-- we had already purchased a cake for later on....BUT we looked at the... More

Love this place! Especially when you can sit outdoors and watch all the tourists pass by. About $25 per person for lunch, no dessert, excluding tip. Try the duck tacos. About my ratings: In an effort to compare apples to apples, my ratings are strictly for establishments within thirty minutes travel of each-other. It makes no sense whatsoever to give... More

Leunig's early dinner special is one of my favorite dinners out. Good variety from bistro menu, great price, excellent food ( love the salmon option), wonderful presentation, all served warmly by attentive staff in a nice ambient setting. After dinner, take s stroll along the Church Street marketplace!

Leunig's is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. A great date restaurant--very cosy. In the summertime, they open up the windows so, while your table may be inside, you feel like you are eating al fresco.
