I've never posted a review, but this owner is not very nice. – Wow, the food might be good, I wouldn't know. We walked to Leo's in 10? F with a baby and four folks over 65 (our parents!) We were an 8 top, they don't take reservations. So we called, "do you think you can seat us" - "we don't want to take the family out in this weather etc" - "No problem" they say.
Well, we get there and there are plenty of tables, but they seated everyone spread out, no room for an 8 top. They tell us 30 Minute wait. We say, we called five minutes ago. They say, things change.
Not only this, the manager, instead of addressing the problem right away. Notices our confusion and ignores us until he walks over and takes our drink order. Sorry a vodka soda might chill me out, but my child has other plans.
We had no choice but to head back out into the cold, babies do not like to wait for tables.
I explained this to the owner too - he says, "I understand" - so seat us I say, "sorry" he says.
So we left. I will boycott this place to everyone I know.
Restaurants are dime a dozen, in the economy, I would choose my actions accordingly.
He did not.
Leo can take a hike.
Hidden Treasure! – Having dinner at Leo's is like going to Grandma's for Sunday supper... The food is as traditional, homemade Italian as it's going to get! If you're looking for a more modern place to eat, don't come here. You come to Leo's for the food, the Frank Sinatra music, and the value - the prices cannot be beat, especially if you're sticking to pasta! A perfect way to save money for later that evening on Washington Street...
A gem in the rough – Snobbish foodies need not apply & yuppies?
Leo's is old-time Italian Hoboken at its very best.
On a recent visit however, their attempt to update the restaurant annoyed me.
"Don't mess with a good thing", "if it ain't broke, don't fix" it & several other cliches come to mind.
