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'd heard Leon's rivaled San Francisco eateries and though it's been in Chico awhile this was my first visit here. It did not disappoint. We started out w the Thai lettuce wraps - amazing flavor. Next we had the halibut - I had it by...More

We have eaten here a few times and love the cuisine. It is a little spendy, but well worth it for a date night. The dishes are very artistically designed. We hope to go back soon

Once again chef Anne and crew come through with an epic dinner that keeps us coming back. We came last Friday for my wife's bday with another couple and left fat and happy. My wife has a gluten intolerance and they always accommodate her substitutions....More

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.
