A colleague and I were milling around the College-street Burlington, VT and came across Leunig's by chance - liked the vibe of the music outside and went inside.

Time is short - I'd like to write a more detailed experience, but this place operates on all cylinders. Family, corporate, a date...great food - boutique, bistro environment...and the service was positive and encouraging.

Visitors can expect new flavor profiles, a decent wine list and price points that will fit anyone - from the under ten buck crowd to the what-the-hell$.

Alex was our server - great attention; obviously a pro and well informed...if I am within 90 minutes of BTV, I'm making it a point to come back.

Great restaurant for anyone who's used to "great restaurants."

Leunig's is a spot where you can count on a good meal. I find the atmosphere relaxing and the menu interesting enough to return to.

“Great lunch spot!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

I was traveling from Canada to New Hamphshire and decided to stop in Burlington for lunch. I found this spot on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We had a lovely lunch and great service. We decided to try a little bit of everything so we only had one entree between the 4 of us. For lunch they do a daily special. The day we were there it was a baked macaroni and cheese with Vermont white cheddar. It did not dissapoint. I am a sucker for french fries with Truffle oil......yum! The only item we had that we did not enjoy was the pumpkin chowder. It was more like a pumpkin stew and was overly spiced with allspice and nutmeg. Our server was great even though it was definatly a business lunch spot. Also a great wine list!

“Best in Burlington”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Have visited this bistro three times this month while here in Burlington on business. I had also eaten there in the past.

Food has been excellent. Enjoyed steak frites twice and beef bourgnion. Each was a good size and the steak perfectly cooked. The dinner salad was tasty, nice presentation with a nice bread basket.

I hesitate to mention the 4:00 to 5:45 pm $15 meals as I am surprised that more people don't take advantage and make getting a seat difficult. Clearly, this is a super bargain and regardless of the price the best meal I have found as a visitor to Burlington.

The staff is vey professional and without being overly attentive, permit a pleasant dining experience.

If in your budget, don't pass this one up.
