My husband & I celebrated our anniversary in Burlington,VT and couldn't wait to enjoy a blissful meal at this fine establish- ment! We ate al fresco style on a sunny, warm evening on Church St. and you could feel the atmosphere of "far away" while eating a relaxed meal....

We ordered 2 drinks and 8 oysters and are tab was $50. Our oysters were still stuck to the shells, no juice and pieces of shell in the oysters. For $3+ per oyster I expected better. Service was ok, but our waiter should catch things like badly broken shells before it gets to the table. As a fellow chef, I... More

This restaurant has been on my radar screen since our son went up to the University of Vermont. Finally made it. We mostly liked our food but the service was terrible. Rude hostess, forgotten items, late items.Bright spot was the bar service - fast, friendly, delicious drinks. Not returning any time soon which is a shame because I had high... More

The atmosphere reminds me of a Paris cafe. Everything I've tried on the menu has been really good. My husband raves about their corn beef hash. They only serve it at Saturday and Sunday morning brunch these days. Whenever we travel to Vermont, this is a place we make sure to go.

We booked the day before on Open Table and it was busy when we arrived at 7:45. We were shown to a nice table in the back. The Poutine to start was absolutely delicious, though very filling so we shared it and it was followed by a wonderful salmon with maple walnut crust and an excellent boeuf bourguignon. With drinks,... More

Our first time here for dinner and it was very pleasant. First, we were unable to book the time we wanted on open table, so we called direct and they were able to accommodate us at the exact time we wanted. Apparently they only allow open table access to half the reservations, FYI. We were seated in an amazing spot,... More

We went on a busy summer Saturday night- but went early so we could take advantage of the Bistro menu. The order had to be in the kitchen by 5:30 to qualify. The salads were very good, I had the Frites, the person I was with had the Salmon. Everything was very tasty and well prepared. The kitchen moved things... More

As this was my first time eating there, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a good selection to chose from and the food was prepared very well.

Here's the great thing about Leunig's - they've been in business for 30 years and still continue to provide excellent service and incredibly delicious food. The restaurant is a great place for any meal...

Cool bistro dining in downtown Burlington; nice terrace on Church St. pedestrian concourse. My Salade Niçoise was outstanding for excellent pan-seared tuna, grilled onions, olives, tang dressing etc. Singles, couple and family friendly.
