What an enjoyable evening! Place was hopping for a Wednesday evening. We fell in love with Jill at first sight. She was knowledgeable about the menu and oh, so personable. Kale salad and grilled octopus apps were tasty and plentiful. Barramundi was fresh with a little spice. The Brussels sprouts ...my oh my, crunchy with a little kick from the chorizo. Dessert didn’t disappoint either. Who doesn’t like a warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. An UWS keeper!! More

The Leopard would get all 5-star ratings if you request a seat in the front section. For 2 people, seated in the back, it is not PERfECT; but one cannot fault the ambiance, decor, service, or the food. Next time, I'll specifically ask for a "front table" and bring a blow-up doll if there are only 3 of us. ;-) More

We met friends from out of town and chose this for proximity to their hotel. Very pleasantly surprised. It’s small - maybe 16 tables - and with a lively bar. The noise level was loud but not deafening; it was possible to converse with out table mates. It was our waiter’s first day, but he was engaging and skilled (although his shift was apparently over in the middle of our meal and a colleague stepped in) and we all enjoyed the food which was carefully crafted and with the chef’s name on the menu to demonstrate his pride and conviction. The menu is somewhat small and limited, but we were able to find dishes that appealed and satisfied. More

I went there last week, and returned this week with a friend. Unsurprisingly, the food was still great, the service was great, and the room was quiet enough so we could hold a conversation, with subdued cool jazz background music. This time, I had white bean soup and the daily special, Sorentino chicken. Both were delicious, as was my wife's minestrone soup. All of us had to take home doggy bags, but it took some willpower not to eat everything on our plates. More

We had a lovely experience here! I had reserved a table for 8, and three of us were 1/2 hour early, after our day at the Museum of Natural History, which is close by. The table was ready for us early. The food was wonderful! Everyone was happy with the food, and we had ordered lots of appetizers, mezzes, entrees and desserts. The only dish that was not liked was the cheese pastries, which were way too salty. The service was very good, too. I would come back, if I am in the area. More

Fun neighborhood bar and grill with a friendly and professional staff. Draft beer selection is good and priced right. We had burgers, which were fine. I ordered mine rare and it was medium so I sent it back and they were very accommodating. I think the real problem with doneness comes from the meat being more like a meatloaf so it doesn’t cook to rare very well. I really wish their burgers were loosely packed and unseasoned like a good burger should be. Fries were excellent and the bun was warm, which it wasn’t the last time. I may need to change my order next time unless they address the burger composition. The goat cheese, prosciutto and arugula salad is fabulous! More

The restaurant is small and unpretentious which this reviewer sees as a plus. The small restaurant spills into the community via a large sidewalk. This is a great metaphor for the food. Great traditional Italian food with with local flair. I mean great Italian food. The pasta is perfection both for the rich (but not overdone) sauces and al dente to perfection. The service was great. I minor mixup resulted in a comped dessert we would not have ordered. Goat cheese soufflé with a raspberry sorbet. I am still thinking about it. It was amazing. I highly recommend it. We will go back. More

Good food, festive ambiance. Had a very good chicken in mole sauce, good service, everyone is very nice. Drinks took a little while to arrive. Frozen margaritas in tall blue-rimmed glasses are festive. I have tasted better (I don't think the lime juice compares with fresh squeezed). Mariachi band played (Besa Me), and while they were on break, a pianist and an absolutely wonderful female operasinger treated us to a few songs (Porgy and Bess?). More

Outstanding quality of fish, much sourced from Japan, which would cost probably $50 more per omakase at other Manhattan restaurants. Every piece was great from beginning to end. BYOB also ups the value. More

Discover Upper West Side

Although it was home to Seinfeld and features other cultural cornerstones like the Lincoln Center, the “Upper Best Side” has long been passed over for other cooler neighborhood when it comes to the food scene. It’s no longer an afterthought, as some of the city’s most exciting new eaters have set up shop above 59th Street, creating more attention for the decades-old uptown institutions. Jewish fare like deli sandwiches and challah French toast are staples, but now you can also find the city’s best dan dan noodles. Grab a cheap Gotham hot dog, class it up with easy and reliable French, and save room for dessert at one of the countless cafes. Just remember to stay intellectually hungry—some of the city’s best museums are right nearby.
