The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil. Indulge in other gallant Gallic offerings with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of classic French fare and wine at Chez Leon, located on Forsyth Boulevard. Chez Leon has earned an abundance of accolades, including St. Louis Magazine's "most romantic" designation for 2010. This Groupon is not valid December 24, 25, and 31, January 1, or February 14. This deal is valid for dinner only.

Chez Leon's dinner menu previews the promises of cleanly executed French cuisine, crafted with top-quality ingredients under the meticulous eye of new executive chef Marcel Keraval. Commence consumption with the moules marinière, a wanton assembly of steamed mussels served in a bacchanal of white wine, shallots, and parsley ($12), or the coquilles St. Jacques à l'estragon (seared scallops with tarragon beurre blanc, $12), demure denizens of the deep suitable for introduction to nosy mothers and robot chambermaids alike. Principal plates include the rôti de poulet au jus de truffles (roasted chicken with truffle sauce, $30) and the quintessentially French steak frites maître d'hôtel (a grilled strip steak with house-made fries, $30). A rotating three-course prix-fixe menu ($43) is available for patrons fearing mispronunciation mockery.

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. 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. Reservations are strongly recommended.

Reviews

Let's Dish featured Chez Leon. St. Louis Magazine rated it the "most romantic" on the 2010 A-List and named it one of the 35 best restaurants in St. Louis. OpenTable diners give it four stars overall, and Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average.

  • The dark walls, the thick drapery, and the opulent, glittery chandelier—the setting is a mecca of romantic potential. If your relationship doesn’t blossom (or at least bud) over a plate of dangerously glorious foie gras there, Mom was right: Call it quits—you can do better. – St. Louis Magazine
  • This popular CWE eatery was bistro before bistros were big. Très hip for the neighborhood flâneur or the West County pieton provincial, offerings like seared foie gras, sautéed veal medallions in white wine with mushrooms, pan-fried trout meunière and mussels in wine with shallots and garlic are a Julia Child dream. – St. Louis Magazine

Chez Leon

Executive chef Ben Guthier at Chez Leon—which St. Louis magazine called "a reminder of what 'dining out' should be"—delights diners with lunch and dinner menus populated by cleanly executed French cuisine. Guests commence consumption within the dining room's darkly hued walls, whimsical still lifes, and a stately chandelier, which make Chez Leon an elegant stage for interpretations of Gérard Depardieu's acclaimed performance in 102 Dalmatians. To complement a lavish meal, patrons can select a luxurious wine 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.
