We went early as there were no reservations available. We got there around 5:15 and we seated outside where we could watch the world go by. The waitress was friendly, helpful and funny. She helped us with our selections, and payed us just the right amount of attention -- not so much that we felt we were being rushed, but... More

Stopped by Burlington on the way back from a Vermont Hike. Wanted to shop and have a bite. A friend recommended Leunig's. Once I saw it I was sceptical that it would be an overpriced tourist spot with a patio on Church Street. I was happy that I was very wrong. It was a great spot to stop in, sit... More

We went on Friday with our UVM student. Have been here before several times. It was only OK. Ordered our favorites...mussels, filet, cheese board! Only fair across the board. Bumming!

Ordered the steak frites and it was awful. Meat tasted gamey, would have expected a better cut at this establishment. Not seasoned at all. Pasta and cheese plates were good but did not make up for my disappointment.

The food was very good. I got the salmon, my husband got duck and my son got a burger & poutine. All the items we ordered were delicious and we especially loved the poutine which we had never had before. The service left something to be desired though. We did have a reservation and were seated right away which was... More

My husband & I celebrated our anniversary in Burlington,VT and couldn't wait to enjoy a blissful meal at this fine establish- ment! We ate al fresco style on a sunny, warm evening on Church St. and you could feel the atmosphere of "far away" while eating a relaxed meal....

We ordered 2 drinks and 8 oysters and are tab was $50. Our oysters were still stuck to the shells, no juice and pieces of shell in the oysters. For $3+ per oyster I expected better. Service was ok, but our waiter should catch things like badly broken shells before it gets to the table. As a fellow chef, I... More

This restaurant has been on my radar screen since our son went up to the University of Vermont. Finally made it. We mostly liked our food but the service was terrible. Rude hostess, forgotten items, late items.Bright spot was the bar service - fast, friendly, delicious drinks. Not returning any time soon which is a shame because I had high... More

The atmosphere reminds me of a Paris cafe. Everything I've tried on the menu has been really good. My husband raves about their corn beef hash. They only serve it at Saturday and Sunday morning brunch these days. Whenever we travel to Vermont, this is a place we make sure to go.

We booked the day before on Open Table and it was busy when we arrived at 7:45. We were shown to a nice table in the back. The Poutine to start was absolutely delicious, though very filling so we shared it and it was followed by a wonderful salmon with maple walnut crust and an excellent boeuf bourguignon. With drinks,... More
