We visited this restaurant on a cold spring evening. This limited sitting outside. We had booked and was pleased we had because by 8pm it was full. It is only a small, intimate family run restaurant. The two waitresses are exceptional - friendly, helpful and attentive. They took time to explain anything we needed to understand - we have very... More

We stopped in Dijon for just a couple of nights and decided to try this local restaurant. The food was delightful and had a local touch for sure. It's a very small seating area which for us makes it far more attractive and cozy. The service attention was fantastic, as our French is not so good they took the time... More

Friendly welcome from owner who is second-generation. She runs the place and I think her father is the chef. Warm atmosphere and interesting paraphernalia create a special experience as soon as you walk in to this diminutive but perfectly positioned restaurant. I had stuffed pig's foot to start which went straight into my top 10 of Dishes I Have Eaten.... More

We order from the lunch special menu. The food was good and the service was friendly. I saw some other dishes around that I would love to try but not much time in Dijon to visit again. The bed of lentils in my wife's chicken was amazing and I finally got a decent crêpe Suzette. Nice wine list heavy on... More

The food is excelent. Service is attentive and quick. Wine is served by the glass. Price is fare and if you choose the menu of the day, you will save money and enjoy the pleasures of the cuisine dijonnais. With few tables do book before.

This 30 seat local establishment in a nutshell: home style but excellent, well prepaired local food with impressive wine list. But the thing tonight was the SERVICE. Two ladies handled full restaurant with a smile, joking, explaining, one with good english and another with the help of google translator😀. We had the best time ever looking them to work. Keep...

This was the place we selected for a quiet birthday dinner, and fortunately we called ahead for a reservation. As it turned out Chez Leon must be very popular as it filled up quickly. It is a fairly small restaurant and it being winter, only indoor tables were set. We were welcomed in a very friendly and efficient manner, sitting... More

We were looking for a small local restaurant not heavily trafficked by tourists and Chez Leon fit the bill. The staff was patient with us despite our not knowing French and assisted us with wine selection. The boeuf Bourguignon was prepared in a traditional manner and thus the flavors were a little more subtle than when prepared in locations outside... More

We went to the restaurant at 13.40 to have lunch. The waiter said we were not so much people (4) to serve the food because it is not worthy for them. He also said that if we had gone more people it would have been possible to offer the meal. I won't come back for sure

Dear David, I think that you published this message to the Wong restaurant. Hère, there is only waitresses and no waiter. Moreover, even if we love our customers, we can't offer meals as you said. Best regards. More
