A chef owns this restaurant and the food is amazing. She does a lot of great fusion dishes and pairs things in ways you never thought of. Only one issue I have with this place is the wait staff is hit or miss. The owner...More

Ordered the special "Grass fed Rib eye" and had to dig through thick sauce to find the 1/4" thick tiny steak, the rest of the plate was good but we won't be back.

No other restaurant in Chico can compare to the food preparation, taste, and display. Leon's is a gourmet delight with specially made sauces that enhance the flavor of each meal.

An outstanding experience in every respect. The food is excellent as to preparation and presentation. Wonderful service. This has to be one of the best restaurants north of San Francisco. The chef formerly worked with Alice Waters, and dining here is evidence of that.

I think they would enjoy it. There's no bar, so alcohol isn't a major player there. The atmosphere is not intimidating--certainly no dress code!--and the young serving staff would probably enjoy offering suggestions.
