We went there for lunch today. I had the quinoa & squash chili, one friend had the beef brisket sandwich and the other the fish and chips. The chili had awesome flavor but while the squash presentation was very pretty, leaving it in the skin made it very difficult to eat--I ended up with chili on my hands and I... More

Only try to eat at Leunigs if you appear wealthy, otherwise they will be rude to you or even deny you service. I have gone to Leunigs around 10:30 to get a drink on two occasions. On both occasions I was rudely told that the bar was no longer serving. Each time, I walked by again about an hour later... More

Amy, I'm sorry that this has been your experience at Leunigs. Indeed Leunigs does close at 10PM Sunday through Thursdays. On Friday and Saturday we are open until 11PM. We welcome all customers who are well behaved. If there were people at the bar after closing for business it was probably our cooks and servers having a drink after they... More

We took a day off from skiing to check out Burlington and were very surprised and pleased to find a bistro that had the ambience of Paris. Our lunch was very good - French onion soup was classic. Though not French, the Caesar salad was also very good. Tangy dressing and crisp Romaine lettuce. I had a couple of cheese... More

Leunigs has been around forever! They are a time honored tradition in Burlington on a great location, the pedestrian walking street. Everyone goes there, locals, tourists, everyone. The food is very good.

This is a very popular restaurant that offers Parisian bistro atmosphere with glass enclosed seats overlooking the street in some areas. Upstairs is nothing special. The food was good tho a bit salty. The citrus shrimp and beef skewer appetizer was good as was the onion soup. The filet was delicious with a bread pudding accompaniment. The beef Bourgogne was...

This is a super Resturant! Quality menu selections with a taste of Paris, consistently prepared. I have tried a number of dishes and can rave about everything. Definitely the best on Church Street.

Leunig's is as close to an authentic Parisian bistro as you can get in Vermont and it is one of the finest restaurants in town. Their Chef Owner consistently produces excellent dishes including their long-time favorites such as Steak Frites or their Cavatappi Carbonara as well as a very good French Onion Soup (classic bistro fare). The upstairs lounge is... More

My stuffed pork dish was fresh and flavorful and the accompaniments were cooked to perfection. Waitstaff were knowledgeable and attentive, and the overall environment was friendly and energetic. I will definitely be back next time I'm in town, and already know what I'm going to try next!

Leunig's is always consistent - great food, great service, excellent wine list. Had a very nice bday dinner. Fortunately, we had a reservation as it is always busy. The Bourride Sètoise, french fish soup was excellent with plenty of seafood and calories. It was served with grilled bread - the perfect complement. The atmosphere is always lively and seating is...
