Went here for our anniversary and had a lovely time! The King Crab legs were awesome as was the cucumber martini!! Sadly, I lost my short scarf over sometime in the duration of our visit, and the staff and manager were very helpful trying to locate it. Thank You for trying!

Another amazing meal, as always. It was a little noisy, but that was one specific table seated next to us. It definitely was an annoyance for our family dinner, but the staff and meal were excellent.

Seated quickly. Server was amazing. Her attention detail set her apart from servers we have had elsewhere. The appetizer; salad and main course perfectly spaced out and the quality of the food excellent. The manager stopped at each table to ask how things were.

Thank you for a great evening.

Located in the downtown area of Grand Rapids very near "Hotel Row" Leo's specializes in fresh seafood but also offers beef, chicken, and pork items for the carnivore. I ordered the tuna tartare as an appetizer, Lobster Bisque as a soup and the grilled salmon. The meal was exquisite !

Service was excellent and there was no rush to get the meal going. You know, the server visits the table every five seconds "have you decided?" Instead my server waited until my cocktail was done and then asked about the next course. I am heard of hearing, but I was able to conduct a normal conversation using indoor voices.

Parking is close by and reasonable.

I would recommend Leo's for a night out or a special occasion. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely FABULOUS! Searched for reviews and this one has the best reviews post COVID and preCOVID. Even our friends from Grand Rapids who joined us said they had eaten there before and LOVED IT!.
Food, service , atmosphere was all wonderful! Our hightop for 8 in the bar was lovely and conversation was no problem with the larger table to hear. Great suggestion from our waitress who was spot on with each of us asking for a recommendation. Everyone raved the next day too about how great it was. And we have some fairly discerning palettes! Tried the AHI tuna and it was best I have ever had.

At this point it is probably the best restaurant in Grand Rapids. Better value than Ruth's Chris. Ruth's probably does steaks A LITTLE better, but the seafood options at Leo's are better.

Our server Mackenzie was outstanding. There when we needed her without getting the way of us enjoying our meal and each other's company. My wife loves crab but not the hassle of picking out the meat. When we asked how the King Crab would be served, Mackenzie told us they are whole intact legs. When we explained why we ask...Mackenzie offered to crack the legs herself and present the meat already picked out for us. We said OK...and she did. Just top shelf customer service right there.

I had a Fillet and my wife had the King Crab and we shared so we both had a incredible surf & turf. My fillet was a PERFECT MEDIUM RARE....just perfectly cooked and super tender.

We opened with Seafood Cake Duet (one Crab Cake and one Shrimp & Lobster Cake) and their Fried Calamari. Both were very good.

The manager was very knowledgeable about wine and helped us pick a bottle of Pinot Noir that was a great compliment to both the Fillet and the King Crab...no easy task.

We ended with outstanding Crème Brule.

Overall, it was one of the best meals I have had. End of story.

This was our first time at Leo's and it won't be our last

We are both retired now so can also have lunch in addition to dinner at Leo's!

I enjoyed the soup of the day (chicken, chorizo, and bean) while my husband enjoyed the lobster bisque for starters. We also enjoyed our entrees - I had the simply grilled halibut and he had the special - crab cakes.

I just wish I had shared room for dessert because the chocolate cake looked fabulous!

We celebrated our anniversary at Leo’s. It was our first time here. Everything about this place was top notch; from the atmosphere to the food and service. An elegant dining experience with none of the stuffy pomp you get from other high-end places.

The dining room was quiet so we could easily chat and the lighting was comfortably low.

My husband ordered the Halibut and I ordered the Bouillabaisse, both were fantastic. The seafood cake duet was a perfect app for two.

COVID precautions included masks upon entry and a temperature screening plus tables were spaced out comfortably.

Best seafood and steaks in all of GR. Lovely, comfortable dining room, with friendly, attentive servers. One of the last places in town where you can (and should) dress for dinner. Almost wish they had a formal policy on this, but I understand how that just doesn't work.
