Chez Leon is the neighborhood restaurant that you wish you had in your area. Reliably good food, well prepared, great service, really pleasing ambiance. The food is a cut above ordinary, but unpretentious. Good value.

Not only was the food delicious but the service was beyond amazing! The owners/servers are so accommodating and helpful. Really made us feel comfortable so far away from home. A thousand times better than any service we've ever received at home.

I had the fixed price lunch menu which included a delicious and generous steak tartare. My companion went a la carte and his steak was splendid. Reasonable prices, friendly and attentive service and very good lunchtime ambience.
