One of my favorite New York restaurants. Great food, service and ambiance.
It's been ages since we've visited, but it was worth the wait for our anniversary. Each course was a treat for our tastebuds, and the service was beyond stellar.
Stellar across the menu. Traditional Neapolitan food. Wine list is impeccable and long. Favorites are zucchini parm, branzino, steak. But I rate the restaurant most highly on experience and front of the house treatment. The team is first rate and the ambience is as well.
Restaurant came high recommended and was spot on. Excellent food and great service.
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at
Il Gattopardo. Our dinner and wine were exceptional as was the top notch service. This one of New York’s real restaurant gems, oozing an understated elegant sophistication. Gattopardo is a restaurant to take the special people in your life or important business clients. We look forward to our next dinner at Il Gattopardo. Bravo!!
Interesting and stylish but expensive for the quality of food served.
Food was absolutely delicious! Best we’ve had in a long time. Everyone is our party raved about each course. Service was attentive and pleasant. The atrium looks great but otherwise the ambience is lackluster, a shame as it is in a beautiful town house.
We live in the city and never visited, received a recommendation and were pleased that we tried the place out. The service was excellent - I would have expected some acknowledgment since we flagged that we were celebrating an anniversary. Will be back.
Overpriced,food was nice but not fabulous.Wines also overpriced.Service nevertheless was very good.
The specials were perfect and the Ribeye was fantastic!
This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The service is impeccable, the food never fails to delight and you are never rushed through your meal so they can flip a table. It is not inexpensive, but it is a wonderful dining experience that we always make sure we have plenty of time to enjoy.
Been here four times. This is the first time I had a bad dish . Wheat pasta with mushrooms. The dish was rushed . No pasta . It was a plate of mushrooms. Main dishes have become very expensive. You have to go on a expense account only . That’s what all of the restaurant clients are anyway.
We visited Il Gattopardo for brunch this past Sunday. As we expected, everything was delicious. I had the ravioli special....this is homemade and you can taste the difference...so light and perfectly prepared with a very light tomato basil sauce....yummmm. My husband chose the french toast, he loved it. The jazz musicians were great, just a lovely meal. The service is impeccable as well.
I have eaten here many times before, but the food this time was just mediocre, especially for the price.
The food is extraordinary . Great flavors. Service is on point. Waiter was very knowledgable about the wines and what would go well with the dishes we ordered.
Only thing I would like to see on my return visit is gluten free bread. They have gluten free pasta so why not the bread.
If you want an outstanding meal with service to match. Go!
Always dine at Il Gattopardo when in NYC...never disappointed!
We have enjoyed Il Gattopardo for years and always counted on a wonderful dining experience in every way.
On Friday night, we brought 2 friends viaiting from Italy. Our waiter kept pushing more appetizers/suggesting the more expensive bottles of wine. We knew what and how we wanted to order.
He didn’t seem to pay attention to what was going on at our table, pouring frizzante water into natural water glasses, pouring more wine into the glass of one guest who said she didn’t want anymore.
Two of us ordered the branzino which is typically brought to the table for display, as it is an impressive fish, and then taken away to be de-boned and put on plates to serve. Our waiter “walked by our table”, briefly lifting the fish up, not stopping and continued off with it to plate.
As I have said, we have always enjoyed Il Gattopardo but when we spend $500 for 4 to dine, we expect a more thoughtful experience.
This is our must-go-to dinner restaurant in NYC. The staff, abundant but not hovering, knows without asking how you enjoy the food. (The waiter will ask once, but then is attentive to an eye or a hand.)
The cuisine is high Italian. Fish, branzino and the fruit de mare shellfish dish in our last visit, is exceptional. The eggplant risotto is a shareable starter, though you might not want to share.
Food was very good. Our waiter was overworked with at large party but still attentive. That large party was loud which was annoying. There is very little acoustical treatment in the restaurant. Even with this, we would recommend it.
Consistently Outstanding and recommend wholeheartedly.
Special branzino great and spring veg ravioli perfect! 2010 Chianti velvety smooth ! Xavier was one of THE best waiters in NYC! It has been a while since i was here but i will be back soon!!!!! Just fab!
Took my lovely girlfriend to eat here for a romantic dinner for her 30th birthday. She loved it. I loved it. Food was delicious. Wine options
Food overall was excellent. Quality ingredients and well prepared. My burrata was excellent, fresh, light with very sweet melon for tatse. The pasta with clams was probably the best I’ve had outside of Italy and definitely better than the highly rated Italian restaurants in New York. My guests had the Bottarga pasta which was also al dente and very tasty.
Staff were courteous and friendly and the
service was impeccable throughout; always there when you needed something but not overbearing. The restaurant was modern and just about cosy but not oppulent. All in all a wonderful experience and a place I shall return to.
I have been going there for at least 10 years and they never disappoint!
Great ravioli! Veal was delicious too.
Perfectly nice food and good service but at this price I expect the food to be a cut above. You are competing with the best at this price level and it was okay but nothing more.
Fantastic italian food. A seasonal menue with at least six specials in additional. Everyone in this restaurant speaks italian, and the servers are intimately familiary with the wine list.
I wish that they enforced a dress code. It’s hard to enjoy a special occasion when other patrons are in sneakers and shorts. For this level of service and for these prices I would have liked everyone to be nicely dressef
II Gattopardo is simply great food and perfect for a date, business, or to enjoy the quality of a New York restaurant. Cozy, classy, fine.
Everything was lovely and delicious
Wonderful restaurant. Food was excellent and the service was tops. My date and I had a lovely time. We will return for sure.
Very good dinner and service.
Wonderful staff, delicious food in an intimate setting. Great value for a fine dining experience.
Food is excellent and service good. Seating is comfortably spaced. However no fixed price lunch
Very pleasant, outstanding service, excellent food.
I love this restaurant for business or personal. Beautiful space and the inside and small outside dining areas are lovely. Great small bar with its own room is terrific surprise as is their large private dining space below. Food and service is excellent. Recommend all their salads, branzino, lasagnas and vegetable sides (escarole with raisins and olives my favorite). Beautiful wine list (mostly Italian). I think it’s the nicest Italian restaurant in that neighborhood.
I just love this restaurant, the food and the space alike. And the service is warm and professional, they are well staffed. Both the outdoor patio tables and inside is great. Lovely little bar and bar room. Highly recommend the branding, lasagne and all the upscale salads work well.
Always a pleasure to have a business or personal lunch/dinner in Ill Gottopardo. Great food and service. Convenient location. Have been coming here for many years.
Amazing in every way. Going back this friday!
In just 3 years, this place has gone from hero to zero.
