You might think Leon’s is a place for a really good burger and fries. And it is - but it is much more. Before going on let’s talk fries. They are hot, crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, with a nice selection...More

The patio is nice but the food is mediocre and the service is often slow and chaotic. I wish the menu had a bit more options.

Really neat lunch spot with great food. I had the mussels and was not disappointed. The restaurant decor/design was also great: trendy, airy, and minimalist. Unfortunately, while the rest of the restaurant is bright, well-lit, and cool, we were seated at one of two tables...More
