We arrived at this restaurant with great anticipation of a good meal, after it was recommended by a local. Because we were considered "walk ins" -non reservation guests we were immediately treated as an inconvenience. Two us arrived later and because I could not come up with my drink order immediately the waitress just walked away. We looked at the... More

We were rained out during our Vermont tour and the planned hike in the Green Mountains had to be postponed, so instead we decided to visit Burlington. We had no expectations but found it to be a pleasant town to stroll around. By chance we came across Leunig's Bistro. It looked very busy so decided to eat an early dinner... More

Came here in April 2013 and loved it, so knowing we would only be in Burlington for one night, we booked Leunigs. No getting around it, we walked out after sitting without so much as a glass of water for 25 minutes. It wasn't THAT busy, and to prove as much, there was a table seated right after us that... More

As the owner of Leunigs Bistro I'm sorry that on your last visit you were left sitting so long without being acknowledged. As your previous review of September 2013 and so many other reviews on this site indicate your last visit is not the typical Leunig's experience. I know that feeling ignored will sour anyone's opinion of a restaurant, and... More

I knew from the moment I called to check on their hours this place was going to have a great staff. My husband and I were in town to visit our daughter at UVM. We wanted to take her out to get some great food but she needed to be back to campus at 7:00. It was 4:30. We were... More

This restaurant is delicious! We had a cheese plate appetizer made with local Vermont cheeses which was very yummy! We then had burger with fois gras and truffle cheese. What can I even say? Amazing.

Located in Church St, Leunig's offers great food, great staff, great ambiance. Can be pricey but we discovered the 'Bistro Dinner' at $17.50 served from 3-530P. It includes pistou soup-excellent or mixed salad-also excellent & choice of 7 entrees. We had the beef bourguingnon & steak frites both of which were outstanding. Add a glass of wine for a small...

I made reservations through Open Table a few days before visiting Burlington.... And boy oh boy am I glad I did. Our reservation was early, 5:30 pm on a Friday... But the line was already out the door and around the corner. It was a warm fall evening so the bistro style doors were all open to the street... Wonderful... More

Brunch on the weekends, lunch and dinner anytime. Awesome food / great service / nice atmosphere / very fresh! local ingredients - French-inspired. Don't miss the amazing appetizers but be sure to save room for dessert. Up to 10 local cheeses on the menu. Housemaid pate, the freshest salad ingredients; steak Frites, French onion soup, Bourride Setoise (seafood stew-perfectly prepared),... More

We were visiting my son at UVM on a very beautiful and very busy, Columbus and UVM Reunion/Family Weekend. We first went to a place around the corner (at 5:30 pm) and were told there was an hour and 45 minute wait. No thank you! We then walked over to Church Street and up to Leunig's. I had read the...
