Loved everything about this place. Intimate setting with care to prepare great food. Drinks were spot on and the service - unmatched on my vacation. Julian treated us with superior service! We were new to Paris, being tourists... Helped us with ordering on the menu...and welcomed us in even though we didn't have a reservation. Out of an 8 day vacation in 2 countries. His restaurant and service were by far the best. We even tried his neighboring restaurant - Petit Leon, which is tapas based along with a nice bar. Bravo guys!More

We booked the large table in the private room upstairs on two special occasions: our engagement dinner and my husband's birthday. Each time we had to select a set menu amongst a large choice of food and budgets. The managers are both very flexible and...professional so the organisation went very smoothly. The food and wine are of very high quality. You'll never be disappointed ! I highly recommend the truffle risotto which is absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking for a good service, fresh and authentic French food + a bit of atmosphere I 100% recommend Chez Léon, one of my fav' restaurants.More

Not enough words to describe how satisfied we are! Todays dinner was everything and more, we got that little extra from our visit. The service was superb, the food made our taste buds flip and the atmosphere was perfect for our dinner date. Highest grade...possible to this amazing restaurant! Thank you for making our stay in Paris great!More

The food was fantastic, the ambience was more than we could ask for. It felt very authentically French. Great host and wonderful servers. I had the duck and my partner had the scallops, both were delicious and we finished with Rum BaBa (the first time...I had it and it was amazing) with a bottle of very reasonably priced wine. A hidden gem worth travelling for!More

Wanted to try a more local cuisine for my last dinner in Paris and chanced upon this restaurant as its near my accommodation. Food presentation was amazing and service is nothing short of wonderful as they tried their best to cater to my partner who...requires Gluten free and diary free meals. On top of that not in the mood for meat. We still had a wonderful time and server was really sweet and pretty. Food for me was amazing. Totally love itMore

I tried the escargots with string beans. I also had their specialty for dessert. All of the food that I ordered was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Stumbled onto this place when staying nearby. We started with the charcuterie which was also good, especially the pate. They toast the bread to the point of char -- such a nice touch. My son ordered their slow-cooked suckling pork specialty which was interesting and...tasty, and I had a special with an Iberian pig 'pluma' cut cooked to their recommendation (which is quite rare) that was out-of-this-world good. Service was excellent - the waiter noticed us struggling with the menu and said, "Ah, American...!" and brought us English menus, a nice touch since Google Translate does not do a great job with food descriptions...House wine was excellent and reasonably priced. I'd tell you about the dessert, but we were both stuffed - the plates were very generous. One of two top meals I had all week - I'd go back to Paris just to eat there again!More

Excellent service, young waiters/owners are very friendly and know good english. The food is so good! We ordered pork and beef and the portions were satisfying in size and taste. All food is prepared fresh. The lemon cake for dessert was awesome!
