“Great food, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at LEAF on Sunday 11/3. This place has very nice indoor and outdoor seating. We ordered craft beers and wine and shared a 4 course meal. We had fried oysters for an appetizer followed by grilled romaine Caesar salad. This was followed by the daily risotto which was prepared with short ribs and roasted corn. It was incredibly creamy and delicious. For desert we had a deliciously rich custard. This was one of the most delicious meals I have had in a while. We tried to sit outside under the big shade tree, but it was just a bit too cold. The inside was nicely decorated with a mix of old and new. Our bill was about $75. I was very pleased with our experience.

“Sunday brunch is excellent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Many excellent choices for brunch. A Bloody Mary or Mimosa comes with the brunch. This time of year dining outdoors is perfect with a jazz duo playing in the background. Our waitress, Lisa, was very pleasant, accomplished and efficient. I had the Spanish inspired Bocadillo grilled sandwich which was excellent. My wife had the vegetarian omelet which was also excellent. Very delightful dining with friends. The prices are reasonable.

A great place for a late lunch or an early dinner, especially when the weather is not too hot and sitting outside is tolerabel.

“The complete package”

Leaf delivers it all. Great food, wonderful and friendly service, all at a reasonable price. Enjoyed the amazing double burger while friends loved the salmon BLT. Sit in the courtyard!
