Food was good. Easy part.
Service was bad and so slow!!
When it comes to hygiene, the restaurant is very dirty. A pigeon (flying Paris rats) landed on the board were the cut the bread. None of the waiters bothered !!

Though located at the heart of touristic places in Paris at Champs-Elysées, it is still a great place to eat with their menu set for the tourists on the budget. It's the 2nd time I've eaten here, first was on 2011, their classic and traditional menu are still there with new addition and variation, also the menu set they offer are really great specially the portion. One menu set can be shared by two which is great. Would still recommend to visit and eat here at least once when you visit Paris. Champs-Elysées is incomplete without trying Leon's bruxelles.

Well, first off of like to say that I've worked the restaurant scene before and know how it works (well, supposed to vs does) and I'll say this place needs some additional training. Had to ask for everything including the check multiple times. The food is marginal (non shelled type) and the bread..... Well, not up to French standards that's for sure. For the price and the wait with the quality of food, it's just not worth it. Next time around I'll pass on this one.

This restaurant on the Champs Elysees very close to the Arc de Triomphe was a weak version of other Leon restaurants. It seems that that management relegated the smallest mussels, the fewest wait staff, and uninspired chef/s to this location.

They have so many customers and a great location so no effort was expended on providing good food and service.

The mussels were tiny and lacked flavor, and the fries were almost cool. Do not order the steak tartare, which didn't lead to stomach upsets but was incredibly blend. Lunch set menu was relatively inexpensive and that's the only positive, other than location, of this charmless restaurant.
