We visited this restaurant for dinner during our 4 day visit to Burlington. Leunig's is located right in Church Street Marketplace. The interior is very cute and cozy. Our delicious entrees were Filet Mignon and Eggplant Napoleon. We had a bottle of pinot grigio with...our dinner, which was great. This is an upscale place, that is not at all stuffy. Prices are reasonable for the high end dining experience.More

Solid food experience in the generally overpriced Burlington dining scene. We had scallops and also the steak and fries. Steak slightly overcooked and temp was not quite hot on arrival but the quality was certainly evident. Scallops were 3 large , perfectly seared and the...sides carried along well. We had the oysters 3 ways to start and they were simply excellent. Service was well done and organized on a very busy sat late afternoon. Wine list checks most of the boxes with somewhat limited glass only selection but many a bottle in multiple tiers.More

We had reservations for a group of 12 people for Saturday, October 15. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was closed. Nobody called us ahead of time to let us know the restaurant was going to be closed. We spent two hours in downtown...Burlington calling other restaurants and walking around looking for another place to eat. We finally were able to get another reservation at another restaurant, but it was another one hour wait before we were seated. Two days later, I called the restaurant and asked to speak with the owner or manager to ask for an explanation of what happened. Nobody ever returned my call. We will never come here againMore

As soon as you walk into the place you are immersed in an ecclectic menage of artifacts and paintings. It ws a warm day in August so we chose to sit by one of their huge open windows which allows you to almost reach out...and shake hands with any of the many people walking/jogging past. Delightful formpeople watchng. Their wine selection was great and their food menu expansive with plenty to choose from. We were there between 4:00 and 5:00pm so were able to take advantage of their "Bistro Meal" special for $24.00 which includes soup or salad and choice of entrees (of which there were eight delicious sounding entreses) and we chose the Beef Bourguignon and the Steak Frites. Bought perfectly prepared and the Steak Frites properly charred to add flavor. This was preceded with a passable mussels appMore

Great food (and surprisingly large portions) and good service. Plenty of outdoor seating, although packed a bit close. There are only two individual bathrooms for a fairly large establishment, so get in line early if you have to go. The bill was a very reasonable...$99 for two before tip for appetizers, entrees, and a great apple cobbler for dessert.More

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived- we probably ahd the latest and indeed only available booking Started off well and food was nice However the server got a bit sniffy" when we asked about various dishes- gave the attitude of being pretty superior...As we were late going in we were the last there at about 9.15 when the staff started cleaning the dining room and putting the hoover on- totally inappropriate- we felt like we had to rush pack up and go- sad way to end the evening. What is worse the waiter then came to ask if we would like desserts- fortunately we said n as he already had the bill in his hand! I have never eaten in a resturant that puts the hoover on whilst there are still diners in situMore

Excellet food, with less-than-average service by server. Very busy place. We waited 30+mins to get in, but the food was excellent.

Best restaurant in Burlington, what more can I say. We had not booked any restaurants for the 4 nights we were staying in Burlington but when we walked past Leunig’s it was packed so we asked for a table for one of our nights. Our...server was Daniel and he looked after us very well. I had the cavatappi carbonara and my wife had the beef bourguignon and both were excellent. We followed that with cheesecake and maple crème brulee. Excellent again. We were so pleased we asked for a table for our last night in Burlington. Our server was a young lady whose name I did not get but she was very attentive. I enjoyed the carbonara so much the first time I had it again and my wife had the salmon, both excellent. For dessert I had cheesecake and my wife had the cheese plate which was very big. We finished off with 2 French coffees. We really enjoyed both nights. The ambience in the restaurant is really nice, busy but relaxed. Well done all at Leunig’s.More

Really enjoyed the menu. Seems we could have chosen at least half a dozen dishes. Amber was excellent in taking care of our needs. Very nice local beer list. I had the Salade Niçoise which was quite delicious and a decent size. The snails are...yummy and have cheese on them. The trio of different "meat" small burgers although slightly overcooked for us very tasty. Good experience, and very FrenchMore

The food here was good as was the cocktail. I would say the folks staffing the hostess stand weren't super-helpful. We asked for a table outside or a table near the open windows. The two of us were put upstairs at a table for four....Our waiter was very pleasant. It was okay - I chose it because it was supposedly a favorite of locals. That may explain why, as tourists, we didn't feel especially welcome. We has a much better experience at Deep City.More

Saturday night. Sat outside .Great place to people watch. Comfortable area. Very Safe and clean. Staff was crazy busy. Did an excellent job. You can tell they are very frustrated. Not enough help. Limited staff, overcrowded patio, tough situation. So I give the folks that...were there working an A+ for effort and professionalism. Food was good. We were overcharged on bill but the team took off the overcharges( plural). Team apologized. We didn't care. We were outside enjoying the scene. Again the staff was great. No issues there. Prices were high, Value was low.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.
