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...

Not that college students are not adults, but if you are over 50, you know what I mean. The menu choices at Leunig are great. The kale salad is spectacular and where else can you get a dark and stormy with ginger beer made at the restaurant. The service was great and the meal as well. My second time there.... More

I went over a Sunday at 1 p.m. It was very busy. You can sit at the bar and wait for a table. I ordered the quiche and it was superb. Espresso was perfect without any after taste and the creme brûlée delicious. Very popular crowded restaurant on Sunday, but I would eat at Leunig any time. Try to get... More

Leunig's was recommended to me by my Son and Daughter who live in Shelburne. I had not been there before, but thought it sounded excellent for my friend and I who were traveling for the Columbus Day weekend. Leunig's definitely deserved the recommendation. The service was excellent and we were surprised by the Poutine with Duck Confit. We were a... More

French atmosphere was wonderful, even some of the wait staff speak French if you so choose to do so. The food was excellent. I had the boeuf bourguignon with a French onion soup... Delicious! Make a reservation ahead of time if you can to be sure to have a table at your desired time.

Fabulous food, wonderful location, right on Church St marketplace (especially nice to eat outdoors in the warmer weather) and the upstairs lounge is a great place to have a drink. We are locals so Leunig's is one of our favorite places to eat in all seasons. And not to be missed if visiting Burlington

We always eat here for lunch on Black Friday while visiting our daughter for Thanksgiving. We like that they change the menu seasonally so we get to try different entrees. We always enjoy the food. Today we had the Pumpkin Falafel, Pork Burger with Pear & Pecan Compote, and The Ham & Brie sandwich. We always start with Sweet Potato... More

Had a great meal and experience here even sitting at the bar. The pumpkin soup tasted real, fresh, spiced just right and had chunks of vegetables that made it worth ordering a bowl. The sirloin was so tasty and soft, no burnt grill marks, again just the right amount of seasoning without overpowering the meat, it was an eyeopening first... More

On our recent 7 day trip to Burlington Vermont to visit our son at UVM we found ourselves eating at Leunigs Bistro twice! Vibrant restaurant on the famous Church Street walking mall. Food was excellent, service was terrific and the ambiance was fun. There was a 3 pcs jazz group there one night and there is 2 hrs of free... More
