Diner Reviews
  • "We liked it so much we came back the next night. The menu is quite varied and everything was well prepared. The staff were friendly, knowledgable and unobtrusive. Lively atmosphere but quiet enough for a conversation. Highly recommended."

  • "Our group of 5 had dinner on a busy Friday night during a live music show. The atmosphere was lively, yet felt intimate. The service was amazing, very attentive. Our drinks, appetizers and entrees were all delivered promptly to our table. We never felt rushed. Everything was perfect. If this were closer to my neighborhood I'd come more often and sit at the bar for a weeknight meal."

  • "We had not eaten at new leaf for some time. Today we invited a relative for lunch after seeing the orchid show at bronx botanical garden. Service attentive and ambience positive. Food not as exciting as past visits under previous chef. Calamari was tougher than it should have been and two of our lunch orders were confused and then corrected. Not a big deal but annoying. lunch menu seemed less inventive than in the past. Now that the permanent tent has been erected over the charming outdoor dining room it will lose some of its charm although will protect against inclement weather. Can only say this visit ok."

  • "This place is not that easy to get to since it is in the middle of Fort Tryon Park, but... the food is excellent, the service is prompt and friendly and the site is wonderful. It is a great place to walk to, a great place to have a drink, a great place to have a nice meal, lunch or dinner. They have private parties on some days in the summer, so check ahead of time."

  • "I have been to New Leaf several times and on this occasion we had a party of 10. The service was deplorable even though the restaurant was not crowded (lunch in the winter). We waited over 30 minutes for drinks to arrive and the waiter was unsure about the menu. The woman who seated us, I suspect the Maitre d', never came over to help and she stayed at the front with a scowl on her face. I'm hoping this was just an off day because despite this situation, I do love coming during the spring and summer for outside dining."

  • "I've had lunch several times at this restaurant and have loved every meal. The atmosphere is so charming, warm and you also have the extra bonus of walking through the gardens overlooking the Hudson River or a stroll through The Cloisters. I took my daughter there as a special treat on President's Day and brunch was being served. I chose a shrimp salad that was pretty much tasteless. It consisted of chopped iceberg lettuce, cold butternut squash with ice cold feta cheese. My daughter had Eggs Benedict and the eggs were hard poached and cold. We should have sent both back but were tight on time. I will return, but probably not for brunch."

  • "We had a reservation Prix Fixe menu @ 8PM. We were seated at 8:30. While we were standing waiting for our table, I was charged $5 for a club soda. This could have been a great opportunity to offer a complimentary beverage for the wait. Our waiter was very nice, but not very attentive. It took another 20-25 minutes to order food. The Branzino was fine. It was not great and a little bland. The ambiance is amazing. I wonder if The New Leaf relies a bit too much on business because of the ambiance and location, and needs to bring focus to quality and service. It was $250 for 2 people for Valentine's Day. I would be reluctant to make the time and financial commitment again for a special occasion."

  • "I have lived and worked in and around New York City for 65 plus years and never had been up to that area. Since I had an opportunity to be on the upper west side, a friend suggested I have lunch at the New Leaf. What a very pleasant surprise. The travelling to the restaurant was extremely easy, the food was excellent, the surroundings were perfect and the staff was knowledgeable about the history of the New Leaf. I look forward to going back again in the warmer weather. This truly is a neighborhood gem."

  • "New Leaf is in a stone house inside Fort Tryon Park, just a few steps away from the heather garden. The setting is quite lovely. The building is an architectural gem. We live in the community and have dined here before. This time, we celebrated my husband's birthday. The building was cold so we were not able to sit in the dining room (funny, last time we were there, during the summer, it was oppressively hot because they do not have air-conditioning). Instead we dined in the bar area, which was just fine. Overall, we had a good time and my husband enjoyed his birthday dinner. Nit-picky complaints: limited menu overall, very limited dessert menu. With the dessert choices, we felt like we were settling."

  • "I have been wanting to go to new leaf since the renovated. The food was exceptional and suggestions were perfect. Since we were one of the last guests the service got a little spotty towards the end."

  • "New Leaf is in the middle of beautiful Tryon Park in a renovated 1930's stone building with charming architectural details. The food is top notch, with a focus on fresh vegetables, fruits and fish. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, and the huge dark wood and granite bar offers a full selection of cocktails and fine wines. AWESOME experience and we will return!"

  • "New Leaf Cafe's location at the top of hilly Tryon Park in Manhattan is wonderful and the small 1930s era Arts & Crafts style building is totally charming! The restaurant is small and welcoming. I thought the food was very good. My only compliant is that I believe our server should have told us the price of the entree special I ordered that was delicious but was also $60, esp. when the range of the entrees on the regular menu ran from $18 - $30. Other than that everything else about our dinner evening was quite nice! I would recommend this restaurant to others just make sure you ask the price of any specials so as to avoid a big surprise!"

  • "The staff at New Leaf were veryaccommodating as always and our group had a great time. This is a rustic gem and the fact that it is nonprofit, is also a nice plus. I would recommend New Leaf for its dining experience and the fact that the waitstaff never rush you through the meal. A wonderful dining experience."

  • "What a beautiful, joyful New Years Eve! Amazing food, really fine service and carefully crafted cocktails. Dancing to lovely, soulful music and everyone happy to be there! A lot of thought and energy was put into this New Years celebration - from the menu to the band to the fun party favors handed out before midnight. The attention to detail was lovely - it is so fun to go to an establishment where the staff takes pride in what they serve and delights in sharing it with you. And they should be proud of the thoughtful food and drink that is provided. This lovely atmosphere is present on non-holidays as well, and I will be back next year for New Years and hopefully many times just to enjoy myself through out the year!"

  • "Going to New Leaf is an obvious outing in the summer, with beautiful gardens surrounding a historic stone building. Even on a rainy winter night, though, the location has great charm, with a warm atmosphere and twinkling lights. The food is delicious and perfectly cooked and the helpful wait staff hits just the right note. It's a special trip for this Brooklynite, but completely worth it."

  • "New Leaf is a favorite of ours, and it is consistently a wonderful dining experience. Possibly the best crab cakes & mussels any of us had ever had. Our pork, steak, and fish were all delightful. My friend and I had different opinions about the fish--she wanted more flavor, but I enjoyed the lightness of the tomato sauce and greens. Apple crisp was heavenly; bread pudding was perfectly semi sweet for me, but may not be sweet enough for those who prefer less dark chocolate; cinnamon beignets were A-mazing, and the side of whiskey sauce was good in my coffee too :) We felt a little ushered out at the end of the night--we were the last of two tables, but our server was doing her best to be gracious about it."

  • "Whether you're on your way to the Cloisters or on your way up the Henry Hudson Parkway, this gem of a restaurant satisfies. Perfect for a lunch when you have a bit of extra time because the room is quiet and you can converse easily. We asked to split a large salad (as part of our meal) and the waitress did so without a blink; it even came out on separate plates at no extra charge. We visited in December so were not able to sit outdoors on the patio."

  • "New Leaf is a wonderful break from congested city dining, nestled in Ft Tyron Park by the Cloisters. Sophisticated farm fresh dining, fabulous bar, in a restored city park rest house. Walk around the grounds with great views of the Hudson, dine out inside in season, or under wood beamed ceilings in winter. Smart and friendly staff. And parking, just a few blocks from GW Bridge for the savvy NJ commuter."

  • "Service staff is polite and helpful. Portions are small and still has no wift after guests' comments on this. I wonder if the management cares about the customer's request and comfort after years of receiving feedback of the same nature."

  • "Second time eating here --- first for dinner, now for lunch. Great spot just down the road from the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Cloisters in Ft Tryon Park. OK wine list, nice selection of appetizers (had the mushroom soup), entrees (had the delicious salmon burger) and deserts (had the trifle). Excellent and attentive service. Will definitely be back again."
