The food was wonderful however the service was not up to par for a $220 tab (including tip) I did tip the customary 20% but the lack of bread and water being refilled on the table left a bad taste for us. I would however like to compliment the host as his warm personality was extremely welcoming.

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant when trying to find a place to eat on a busy Friday evening. We were lucky to get in with only a 10 minute wait, but it was packed. We didn't get a main meal, instead got a few appetizers, drinks and dessert. Everything was excellent! Servings were generous and everything was... More

Excellent experience from beginning to end. Made dinner reservations in person at lunchtime for 7PM. Asked for a table by the window and ended up with a nice second floor table by the window. We enjoyed a beautiful filet and a Beef Bourguignon. Excellent atmosphere and service.

Burlington seems like a fairly modern college town but Leunig's Bistro was a nice look back to the past. The atmosphere and furnishings had a yesteryear look and feel. A bit crowded in that tables were pretty close to each other and it was pretty easy to hear others' conversations. Not all bad, but you should know that this wouldn't... More

Saturday nights in downtown Burlington are busy!!! After our two other choices didn't work out, my husband stumbled upon this place...and reserving your table online is a GREAT added touch! The other restaurants were booked but we were able to get a table while driving up to Burlington and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. Great service, huge fancy drink menu, so... More

I recently enjoyed dinner at Leunig's Bistro as part of a large party. The restaurant, billed as "vintage-glam," was bustling on a weeknight. There's a nice energy there. The staff was exceptionally friendly and fun. My meal - Soup Au Pistou followed by Vermont Turkey Roulade - was quite good. We were a lively group and the team that served... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious dinner! We ordered a variety of appetizers including duck sliders, French onion soup, Beef and shrimp skewers all were outstanding. The only disappointment I had was that every dish included a sausage or meat component such as shrimp and scallops With andouille sausage gravy and turkey with sausage. So if you don't eat... More

I really enjoyed our visit. The duck con feet poutine was fantastic. Drinks were lovely. Great staff. We visited twice in two nights if that tells you anything.

We spent about 45 minutes in the lounge upstairs having drinks and appetizers before a table became available. 45 minutes may seem long but we didn't mind as we were treated very well. The bartenders, maitre D and waiters couldn't have been friendlier. Highly recommend the shrimp cocktail appetizer. All of our meals were superb and we can't wait to... More

After a three hour car ride and a nice stroll along Church Street we stop here for an early lunch. It was Sunday and they were doing a brisk breakfast/brunch business. I had a cheese plate with fruits, and crackers. Very tasty and quite substantial. My husband enjoyed his French Onion soup and Apple fritter salad. I've couldn't help notice... More
