We had reservations for the Saturday after Valentine's Day and all went well. There were 4 of us - 2 of which had never eaten here before. Yes, it is high priced but for what you get, it was reasonable. The experience and ambiance are what adds to this. You need to be a great meat lover to eat here though because that is what is served. The salad bar is nice but if you are looking for a conventional steak house salad bar, this is not for you. For those who like to try different things and are not pinching pennies, you will enjoy the experience. If you are looking for quiet, romantic this is not the place either. Rather loud, fun time. We were with friends and had a great time. It may have been the food combined with the company, but I would highly recommend this restaraunt.

this place is a joke. I made a reservation for valentine's weekend two weeks in advance and they couldnt even keep their books in order to hold the reservation. Then I finally got a chance to eat there and the food was terrible quality and overpriced. The employees were rude and completely ruined the holiday for me and my girlfriend.
Last week, my husband and I went to LeBlon for the first time to celebrate his birthday. We could not have been happier!
The evening's meal started with a friendly hello from our waiter, who explained the setup to us. We then went to the cold salad bar, which was exceptional, and had a great variety of cold salads as well as a few finely prepared seafoods.
Back at our table, I enjoyed the handmade Sangria and mini cheese dinner rolls hot out of the oven. When we completed our salad course, we were just in time for the rounds of ten - TEN - finely cooked meats (filet in bacon, garlic steak, glazed flank, sirloin, chicken, sausage, turkey, pork loin, parmesean pork, and lamb) along with fried plantains and the best sweet potatoes that have ever touched my tongue.
We did save room for dessert, of course - he had the mango cheesecake, and I the red velvet cake. Both were exceptional, and both were made from their bakery, which is housed in a little lunch shoppe down the road. Service was prompt and friendly, and the food was wonderful. Well worth the price!

We greeted nicely and seated promptly enough, but there my praises of Leblon Brazilian Steakhouse ends. Actually, the mini pop-overs were delicious, the fried bananas and mashed potatoes were serviceable, BUT... The attraction of a Brazilian Steakhouse is a variety of meat offerings. The meats were of poor quality and extremely over-salted. One gaucho deftly cut me a slab of prime rib I would have serious reservations about giving my dogs.
The highly touted salad bar, had too few offerings, and again, poor quality of most items.
The bill came to over 60$, with water and coffee as beverages, money better spent at any of the many finer restaurants in Greensboro.
