Inventive but loud French-inspired restaurant

Food here was French with a twist. The apps included inventive takes on old stand-bys, like French Onion Bites (soup-soaked croutons smothered in cheese) and Mock Escargot (mushrooms with gorgonzola, served in the style of escargot). Mains were flavorful and cooked just right. Desserts were... read more

Always make you reservation here. It's worth it. Been going here for years never disappoints. Cocktails are excellent, diners great. A must to dine here.

This European bistro sits on a busy corner on the pedestrian mall in the center of downtown Burlington. Sit outside under an umbrella in the summer, or inside the splendid restaurant any time of year. A great place to people watch while enjoying elegant cuisine. Be sure to save room for creme brûlée done Leunig's way --- with crusted maple... More

Leunig's Bistro is a find on the Marketplace for dining anytime. Being a native of Burlington, I can appreciate how far this restaurant has come. This spot was originally an A & W, but you would never guess it. The rooms are intimate and there is ample outdoor seating (even if inside, the window walls are up during nice weather).... More

I thought this a was an average restaurant, but the ambiance and server helped make it better. If you could give half a star, I would say this is a 3.5 instead of a 3, but certainly not a 4. Given it was mid-June the weather was just about perfect so we could sit outside on Church St., which makes... More

We have had lunch and dinner at Leunig's and both times the food was fantastic! Choosing what to get is hard because everything looks wonderful. Between my husband and I we've had 6-8 dishes (meals, appetizers) and everything has been great. They do accept reservations and I would suggest that on a busy weekend night, but just stopping by for... More

We had the misfortune of attempting to have a light dinner at this establishment. Aside from the street noise and filthy kids hanging out ten feet from our table, the staff were less than helpful. The waiter failed to take our order properly and then refused eye contact whe we kept trying to get help in correcting it. Finally, after... More

If you ever have a chance to visit Burlington, Vermont, drop down to Church Street. It's a wonderful pedestrian mall with shops, restaurants and pubs. We happened to be in town for the Jazz Festival. Live music everywhere. One of our favorite places to eat is Leunig's Bistro. They have a wonderfully eclectic French menu with wonderful selections. I had... More
