Cleaness is one of the top criteria and when the toilets are doupfull , one wonders about the kitchen... The red cover of the menus are not clean. Service very poor and unprofessional. You have much beter options nearby for the same price.More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Being non-French speakers, the staff took the time to explain the menu to us in English. Charcuterie and fromage plate was excellent, followed by steak for me and burger for daughter. Best restaurant in the street !

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.
