After he took the throne, Napoleon instituted the tradition of serving bread with every meal to put his mother's baguette-heavy care packages to use. Indulge in French tradition with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of French cuisine and drinks during dinner at Chez Leon in Clayton.

Executive chef Marcel Keraval at Chez Leon—winner of an abundance of fine-dining accolades and named Best Place to Eat Out Alone by the Riverfront Times in 2008—delights diners with a dinner menu populated by cleanly executed French cuisine. Guests can commence consumption with the coquilles St. Jacques ($15), a wanton assembly of seared scallops served in a bacchanal of white wine to render it suitable for introduction to nosy mothers. Diners sink teeth into the quintessentially French fillet of beef tenderloin with béarnaise sauce ($36) or the canard à la orange ($30), a roasted duck graced with the orange’s sweet citrus flavors and ability to double as a popsicle flavor.

Darkly hued walls, whimsical still lifes, and a stately chandelier make Chez Leon an elegant stage for interpretations of Gérard Depardieu's acclaimed performance in 102 Dalmatians. Patrons can select a luxurious wine to complement a lavish meal and empathize with the caterers of the Tennis Court Oath for their unwavering dedication to French excellence.

Customer Reviews

Great service. Nice atmosphere.
Dana J. · May 9, 2012
I was very impressed by the entire experience - from the cordiality of the host at the front door, to the promptness and attentiveness of the table service, the quality of the food, and the attention to the tiniest details. This is truly a professional operation in a very elegant environment. I look forward to returning. I've dined in some of the finest restaurants in San Francisco and L.A., and this is at least the equal of the best of them, without the pretentiousness sometimes seen in upscale restaurants.
