excellent bistro

Leunig's is an excellent bistro on the pedestrian mall in downtown Burlington. Both the food and the service make it well worth a visit.

Leunig's is in the heart of downtown Burlington and in the summer you can dine outside and watch the crowd watch you, or you can have a quieter more traditional experience inside. The food and service are superb, not inexpensive, but not over priced. This is not a place for children. We dine there every time that we travel to... More

Sit outside on Church Street if you enjoy people watching. The food and service are A+. I always recommend the calamari to my friends. Excellent salads.

Had lunch here as a solo diner on business. Busy and bustling, the staff were friendly and efficient. A lovely vibe on a sunny afternoon. The food was honest and tasty. I had the daily special - pulled pork sandwich for $10. Great value and very filling. Well worth a stop.

It's been years since I'd eaten at Leunig's. I remember my dining experience there as quite pleasant. This time I'd rate the food as average and certainly not as good as I remember it. In addition to having to swat flies and gnats all evening (we dined inside), every dish seemed super spicy and peppery. I love spicy foods, but... More

This place has great ambiance as well as terrific oysters. If you go before 5pm you can get them at a great discount. Highly recommend you try this place. You won't regret it!

We love church street, and we love trying new restaurants. This one's not only a keeper, but is now our favorite on Church St. We went for lunch and had incredibly delicious smoked salmon and bagel sandwiches. The rest of the menu looked wonderful as well. For lunch, prices are very reasonable. Not sure about dinner.

We fell in love with Leunig's in 1999, and we try to visit every summer we are in Burlington. It never disappoints. Having been to Paris several times, my husband and I agree it comes close to a true French bistro experience. I always enjoy the escargot and filet mignon, and the cocktails are innovative and high quality. The service... More

Can't beat this place on a summer day sitting outside. The menu is different from other cafes on church street but in a good way. I love the freshness of the menu. Everything is delicious.
