“Great food & service”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Leon's began in New Haven, 1938. It has moved over the years but maintained GREAT food and service. We had dinner with friends from Wethersfield Saturday night and they loved it! The dinner specials, wine, salad, and dessert were wonderful. The service was also wonderful, our friends were impressed, and we were happy we recommended dining there.

The next day, Sunday, at 8 PM we were hungry and thought about how great the sauce was the night before. The next thing I knew we were on our way back to Leon's for a second night in a row! We had been to Leon's before on a Sunday evening, they feature a 3 course meal for $19.38, the year when it all started. It was another great meal with great service!!
