In the new house, Il Gattopardo gains an intimate bar space and a marvelous private event room with capacity up to 120 seats. The main dining room has been designed to translate our vision of comfort, modernity, but above all, simplicity, and to keep alive Il Gattopardo’s understated elegance.

Be well, keep in touch, and buon appetito!

After they were out of the first 3 types of drinks we asked for it kind of left a bad impression on 2 of us that are vintage diners they need to get their liquor act together

Il Gattopardo is one of the best Italian restaurants in town and one of the few where you can get truly authentic dishes that do not necessarily appeal to most Americans. It has become eye-watering expensive, but is a fantastic option for a pasta lunch.

Busy for a Monday night and possibly the wait staff was not prepared. We had to wait awhile to put a drink order in and had to ask if there were specials. We had to wait to place our order, too but once we did , each course came out perfectly timed. Pasta with clams was delicious.

Went to Il Gattopardo on Saturday evening at 5pm prior to a show at Radio City Music Hall. Perfect timing to have a relaxing dinner before a 7pm show. We were greeted very pleasantly and service was efficient and timely. The manager came over several times to make sure we enjoyed our meals. All the food was delicious. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. It is somewhat expensive but great for a special occasion.

Food was good. The table next to us received an amuse bouche which we did not. They said it was not that good. Had very long wait times between courses. Pasta was very aldente. Main courses; rack of lamb, sea bass, branzino very good. Finished dessert before coffee and cappuccino arrived. They did take coffees off the bill. The waiter said there would be some sort of candy which we were to get at the end of the meal but did not. I asked as we were leaving. One of the managers said they were out but then the front desk girl produced one for our group of 4. Waiter kept stepping on my foot to refill water which was annoying.

Picked Il Gattopardo based on other recommendations online. 35th Anniversary dinner and really could not have picked a better place. The food was fantastic and our waiter was very attentive. They even brought out candles with our desserts as I had put a note in the reservation that it was our anniversary. When we are back in NYC we will be back. Only change I would make would be to request a table along one of the walls of the restaurant, we were in the middle so while not a big deal, we would just recommend it.

From the moment the Host greeted us, till we sadly had to depart, Gattopardo was not just a gastronomical delight that is a MUST RETURN TO on every trip to NYC to navigate through the entire menu, but a warm, welcoming, customer first embrace that left us lingering as long as possible. If we had come for dinner, we would have indulged on the Whole Branzino, but the Branzino Crudo and Carbonara were a wonderful compliment to the Jazz for an unforgettable brunch. Bravo to the chef and staff for a full dining experience that will make any diner understand what five star service and food are meant to be.
