My creme brûlée was curdled. Thats not the end of the world, but it was a little disappointing. Starter and main dish (a salad and risotto) were good, but there are better French restaurants in town with better value and atmosphere.

We ate brunch here, quiche, croque monsieur, french omelette, etc. Very classic preparations, with the omelette perfectly, slightly underdone, croque monsieur crisp and flavorful, and the quiche dense with flavor. We sat at the outdoor terrace on a drizzly morning, very peaceful and quiet. The restaurant is co-located with a hotel and near to, but a couple blocks off 6th Ave., thus it was a very quiet street.

The Service and the hosting were very good, just nice people. Lunching outside on a beautiful day was very pleasant and relaxing. The food was more French Carib. than that of any particular french Provence.

Bistro Leo is one of our stable of regular SoHo restaurants. We especially enjoy the steak frites which are usually cooked to perfection. This time, however, on a Sunday night, 4 out of 5 of us had to return them for being overdone. Unfortunately, the second round was not much better. We’ll chalk it up to going to a NYC restaurant on a Sunday night, but it was still disappointing.
The waiting staff was very attentive and did try to make up w some comps but there is only so much they could do....

Bistrot Leo has a lovely setting in Soho with a pleasant outdoor dining area. It's a pretty place both inside and out. But the food was extremely disappointing: skimpy portions, failed recipes (for example the crème brulée). We thought the prices excessive.

The food was excellent, the chef and his team are a talented bunch. Service was professional and courteous. All in all a very good experience and we will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Ordered a side of bacon, came towards the end of my meal after I asked for it three times. No one cared to refill our waters.. we asked for some lemon wedges, the women who brought it literally yelled at us. Our coffee was just sub par. The eggs benedict was good but we couldnt enjoy it after all of this. Had a good experience the week before for breakfast but this week my experience was really really bad.

Incredible food. The Salmon en papilotte was perfectly cooked and accompanying cherry tomatoes, quinoa and broccoli made a harmonious and balanced plate of heaven.

The chocolate cremeaux is fantastic, with a deep richness of chocolate that is memorable.

Service was excellent and ambiance special enough for romantic dining or a business meal.

Truly enjoyed our time here!

We really enjoyed our dining experience. Food was delicious. Tried several apps, salads and desserts. Loved all of them. The pork rillons, steak tartare and potato mille feuille were our top favorites. Don’t forget the desert... banana pan perdu was out of this world. Cocktails were also up to par. Would definitely return here again. I give this place a huge thumbs up. Perfect!!!

Excellent food and our server was wonderful!

We had dinner outside on the patio but can't wait to come back again and sit inside in the back - the decor is gorgeous.

Bistrot Leo is expensive but definitely worth it. The foie gras was exceptional and the wine list has a good range of choices and prices. Going to a hotel for a good meal may be unusual we will definitely return

The beginning was great to have a table outside. Drinks and waiter service were extremely sporadic and seemed as if we had been asking a favor to see when things would come to the table. The busboys were attentive. Place wasn’t crowded and waited an hour for entries. Host was trying to help but was clear the wait staff sitting around had focus on larger tables and others and overall a real disappointment. The place is really cool but clearly alot of issues for a new restaurant.

Excellent new place. The GM and bartender were excellent. The Steak Tartare was outstanding. The Foie Gras had great flavor but a little too chilled. The Filet Au Poive would have been a 5 star for the sauce alone but unfortunately some of the peppercorns in the curst of the steak tasted burnt. The short rib was massive and delicious. NOTE: The DOH was there for an inspection which I am sure did not help matters in the kitchen (Ex: Foie Gras temp) but they still did an incredible job. Looking forward to a return trip. Thank you.
