Attitude. Who needs it. This isn't Paris...it's Burlington. Sitting outside is sweet but that is more about Church St than Leunigs.

I have been going to Leunigs forever. It is always my FIRST place on my list to go to. On the corner of Church and College, right in the center of downtown, with outside space when weather is good, you can enjoy great food, as well as being a quiet observer of life on Church St. which is solely for...

I've been to Burlington numerous times and somehow missed the fact that this upscale French bistro serves one of the finest breakfasts I've ever had, anywhere. The place's atmosphere reminds me of some good restaurants I enjoyed in Quebec City, and the food was so good I would have eaten a couple of different dishes if so inclined and with... More

Ambling along Church Street open mall is exciting enough but when one enters Leunig's Bistro -- watch out! Not loud but the feeling of excitement and enthusiasm. Crowded (but not too crowded) bar for drinking and dining. Two other dining areas downstairs -- one of them on an enclosed veranda. AND there's a bar and dining area upstairs too! Amidst... More

Leunig's never fails to disappoint me. I have been coming here for years and it is always busy. In the summer the garage style windows are lifted up to create a more open environment. The winter is festive and cozy. My favorite time of day to come to Leunig's is for Sunday Brunch. It is a small restaurant and they... More

I must say I've never had a disappointing meal here. But the service is sometimes sub-par, I'm talking attitude. It's starts with the owner. I often get an us verses them attitude, us being the staff and them being the customers. management always seems to take a defiant attitude against unhappy customers. Not great for business considering that there are... More

It's a pretentious little french restaurant that just happens to make the best french onion soup I've ever had and the food is just amazing. Actually had meat loaf when we were here for lunch -- which was amazing too! I've been here at least 8x and I will be back.

I live locally but rarely go to Church street for dining. Went with a group of co-workers visiting from out of town. This meal was fantastic. The service was great. The selection of local beer is outstanding from Switchback on draft, to Heady in a can. Had a Filet and it was done to perfection and had awesome flavor. One... More

This is still the best in town for all around atmosphere, service, and wonderful food! It is our favorite go-to restaurant for early, late, when friends or colleagues come to town, or any time! The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the service is fantastic! Add some light jazz, and you won't be disappointed. We have visitors who always want... More

I've been to Leunig's for romantic dinners as well as business meetings and groups dinners. They never fail to deliver a great experience. Creative selections. Locally sourced ingredients. Helpful, efficient and friendly waitstaff. Any time of year is worth the trip but dining al fresco in the summer months is especially fun!
