This restaurant offers two outdoor options during this pandemic. Sidewalk tables in a glass enclosure with heaters, and private tables in the open air on adjacent townhouse patios/terraces. We sat on the private outdoor townhouse patios to be more socially distanced from others. Even though we were cold outdoors due to Covid 19 restrictions (and we didn’t feel safe enough to be in the almost fully covered sidewalk structure), we endured it as everything else was outstanding. The food is out of this world delicious. The servers did their best to accommodate on a particularly frigid day. The outdoor setting would be perfect on a beautiful warm day and makes for a romantic atmosphere. My only suggestion for the remainder of this NY winter is to figure out a way to add additional heaters or overhead heating to the tables on the townhouse patios. The sidewalk structure is too enclosed to feel safe from a virus that we all know could linger for hours in the air. I would consider leaving the sliding doors open and investing in more and/or stronger heaters if possible. I would also consider getting those plexiglass dividers to add an extra layer of protection between the tables in there. As for the single floor heaters on the townhouse patios — they only warm the person seated right next to them and leave the others freezing. Let me again emphasize however that the the food and overall atmosphere was perfect so I do not regret dining there despite the cold. I will definitely return again when visiting MoMA (next street over) especially in the warmer months ahead.

First time and a favorite already! First off, they did such a great job with the outdoor dining set up. Our table was on the landing of the stairs leading to the main entrance of the brownstone and it was a very European, romantic feeling. Second, attentive and impressive service, and third and most important, incredible, super tasty and fresh food.

I had zucchine eggplant and spaghetti con bottarga (roe) and they were absolutely delicious. Anyway you can't go wrong with anything that Il Gattopardo has to offer on its manu. Owner Gianfranco Sorrentino and Chef Vito Gnazzo are absolutely the best host! Plus the restaurant is well heated so you can do outdoor dining and be totally comfortable.
It's a must try

Amazing dinner with an amazing service. This is about as best as fine dinning will give you in nyc right now with pandemic. My husband and I go out all the time and love a great fine dinning restaurant but it’s been so cold we can’t even enjoy but gattopardo made it perfect to feel warm and still comply with all guidelines.

Be cautious on surprising "treats" brought to the table!! So I have to say that I'm super disappointed - have passed this place so many times on the way home. Beautifully set up for outdoor dining. I will say the food and the service is fantastic and I would have been giving 5-stars except for a big surprise when I got our bill. We had said we were there to celebrate a special event and ordered a decent bottle of wine ($215) after a specialty cocktail ($42 for both). We ordered three courses and then one last glass of wine for my husband (we weren't asked which - it was $32)....so perhaps after seeing we were comfortable with spending on a good meal, they thought it okay to surprise us with a $90 charge for two grappa/brandy - I had asked for tea to warm me up and the server suggested a cognac or brandy and we agreed. Shocked to see a $90 fee for these beverages - no discussion about it. I just paid the bill and left - my husband was furious. Not sure we will go back after what feels like a sneaky attempt to make money from customers who can afford to pay. Just because we CAN doesn't mean we would have agreed to a $90 brandy closer.

Outdoor dining. Very well set up. We had a lovely table up a few stone stairs at the building entrance on a landing. Personal heater. Quite warm enough and well separated from others. Pleasant and attentive service. Tasty food. Highly recommend the Osso Buco. Serves not large but sufficient. On the pricey side including wines though the selection of Italian wines was excellent.

IL Gatopardo is proof that fine dining can be done in any situation without losing an ounce of attention to detail or sacrificing quality. Christmas Eve in a rainstorm and we were nestled in a nook of the step down, that felt like a private dining room. The food was spectacular and the wine and service was sublime. In the midst of all this crazy, it’s wonderful to know that you can still find a little pocket of civility and beauty. Thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤️

Il Gattopardo for me sets the standard for Italian cuisine in the city. It’s a fortunate combination of extremely high quality ingredients, superlative cooking techniques, and (truly) amazing staff, always affable and professional. We particularly appreciated the efforts they made to accommodate outdoor dining in this difficult time arranging tables in a thoughtful manner and preserving a high-end feel to our experience. Kudos to all, Keep it up!

Even with the unfair restrictions on restaurants in NYC the people who served us took it in stride. They were professional, polite, courteous, and above all a pleasure to talk with throughout our lunch. The chef brought to the table an amazing lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed every thing about our restaurant choice.
