Fabulous service and delicious poutine! I will definitely dine here again. The food was so good and our waitress was very kind and provided great service.

Busy place even at 3pm. Service professional and efficient!They had a special for $22 that included a soup or salad and several entrées and you could add $7 or $9 for a glass of Merlot. I had the soup Au pistou. Very tasty vegetable soup....Not heavy at all and was just a small bowl like a teaser to whet your appetite which left enough room for the steak frites. Steak done perfectly to my request. Pink. Served with port wine Demi glacé French fries and a horseradish sauce. The horseradish sauce sealed the deal for me. It was nice and creamy and perfectly spicy. I also had a taste of the chocolate cake. Not sure if it was flourless but it was exquisitely divine!!! Delicious!!! I ordered the afogato and I was a bit disappointed. I guess I was expecting too much. I wanted it with coffee ice cream but it came with vanilla.More

Crowded, loud. Salty food. Lots of "pseudo Paris" decor. I got the impression it was a "cheesy" (lol) restaurant on entry. Service was poor. Lots of good reviews but people I work with avoid this "tourist hole" due to poor food and high prices.

This is our third time here and as always the food and service were exceptional! We had made an online reservation the day before and we’re able to find on opening for the time we wanted! Great casual atmosphere and the atmosphere and food remind...us a lot of France!More

We had a 6pm reservation made more than a month in advance. We drove all the way from southern Maine. At 7:25 someone-- he must have been the host or manager--- threw us out because there was a wait for tables. We had ordered a...3-course meal with plenty of wine! This is how they treat people because of their own poor management. I have never been treated so badly in a restaurant in my life. It was awful. There are so many restaurants struggling right now. Don't support a business who treats people so horribly. Spend your money elsewhere. We would never go back.More

We’ve loved Leunigs since our college days in the late ‘70’s and have been many times since! Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed the Summer Wedge salad and the Burrata salad, which we’ve recently recreated to great effect at home (greens, bacon, heirloom tomatoes, peaches,...burrata, etc.). The maple creme brûlée was perfection although we drove up our bill with 4 glasses of wine! Great service and surroundings in the heart of Church Street with extremely open and covid safe options both inside and out. Highest recommendation- you can’t go wrong!More

Very disapointed with this establishment. The steak tartae was so, so. My steak and pomme frites was absymal. Pomme frites were similar to the fat encrusted over cooked fries that are available in any American bar. The steak resembled shoe leather, with no flavor. Not...enamoured with food offered so far in Burlington.More

Soup Au Pistau and Cavatappi Carbonara. Delicious. Busy place but service was fast and the food came out hot. Heaters full blast outside and the passing parade made for an interesting meal. I would eat here again.

Haven’t been back to Burlington in at least four years. But Leunigs was just as great as we remembered! Strongly recommend the French 75 cocktail and the poutine- best south of the border. Excellent service!

We stopped in for lunch and had pleasant meal. There is a large seating area on Church Street as well as the large restaurant. We opted for an inside window table. With the widows open it was an enjoyable time dining and watching the parade...of passers-by on Church Street. I had the turkey BLT which was tasty but light on the bacon. The grilled salmon was very good with a surprising variety of tastes, textures and temperatures. The base was hot spinach followed by mashed potatoes topped by cold cucumber slices in a light dill sauce, then the salmon topped with fruit slices. The Bistro is reasonably priced and a friendly place to dine.More

We are having trouble finding enough cooks to do our full brunch menu. We are serving 5 of our most popular brunch items starting at 11am on Sunday. Our lunch menu always has an omelette on it.
