Il Gattopardo has simply the best social-distancing outdoor seating I've experienced in New York. In a space that most restaurants would crowd ten tables, Il Gattopardo spaces about 4 or five. It was fantastic. I felt safe and happy.
Bravo!

Due to Covid time, the only Easter tradition available to us was lunch at a fine restaurant. We were delighted we chose Il Gattopardo. The gracious greeting from the maitre d', the flexibility for us to dine inside or out, the attentive wait staff throughout the meal made for a most congenial experience. The menu is so well conceived that each of the four of us easily identified dishes we wanted. The two different ravioli were delicious, the octopus appetizer the best I have had in awhile, the zucchini dish scrumptious. We will definitely return.

Attentive service. Lovely dining space (although outside spaces appear even more quaint if the weather is nice). The pheasant pasta -- amazing & goat dish incredible. A great restaurant for special occasions and making memories. The only advice for patrons of what not to get -- forego the tomato & cucumber salad as it was not flavorful. Everything else was amazing, but this tasted like I cut up tomatoes and cucumbers and put them on a plate. Period. No olive oil or spices. Very bland. I'm actually wondering in the busy if someone forgot to top this off. Anyway, all else was fabulous, but $20 for a small tomato & cucumber salad with nothing on it was disappointing. We would recommend this restaurant and go here again despite the salad sadness!

The table immediately behind the hostess stand was hit with cold air every time the front door opened. Service was efficient but not special. Food was fine but also not special. I had the Branzino and my husband had the goat.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful, attentive staff. We always have a lovely time whenever we have the opportunity to go there. There is a significant wine list, wonderful appetizers and pastas, suitable for vegetarians. The zabaione with fruit is a wonderful Italian dessert.

Such a great spot. I walked by this restaurant years ago, and forgot about it. I recently stumbled upon it, while headed to a doctors appt. So I went for my fiancée's birthday.
Very professional service, upscale food. A bit pricey. Save it for a special occasion.
Would like to go back for lunch, in the summer and sit outside.
All the food was great.
Dessert was somewhat disappointing....

Dim lit ground floor of gorgeous building, exceptionally friendly staff, highly skilled at enticing you into an extra $38 glass of wine (price revealed at the end of meal when check arrives). Yes, we could’ve inquired up front.

Excellent service, excellent food, and a pleasant atmosphere all at Il Gattopardo. We had a very nice evening, starting out with vodka martinis with castelvetrano olives, which were perfect. The pasta courses were also top notch: my wife had the fettuccini on the menu and I had the ravioli special (stuffed with branzino and topped with baby shrimp). We finished by sharing a plate of veal scaloppine. Delicious! Two glasses of Pellagrello Nero (if I recall), and a tiramisu paired with some excellent barrel aged grappa completed the experience. Our server was attentive, personable, helpful, and kind. We were fully satisfied in every way.

They set us up with the most beautiful corner outdoors and were even accommodating enough to put a heater right next to us as we requested! Our waiter was extremely nice and the service was attentive and amazing! Our food and drinks came out quick and even better it was all DELICIOUS! I’m not from NYC but I would defiantly return to eat here again!

10/10 Restaurant experience.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been so disappointed.
1. I reserved to be seated outside as my guest and I were uncomfortable with indoor dining due to Covid.
Upon arrival I was informed there was no longer outdoor dining. They should have called me prior to my arrival.
2. We were seated in the basement where it was freezing cold - colder than outdoors!
3. The heating lamps used indoors (which is somewhat curious to me - legal?) continued to cycle off every 10 minutes.
4. I needed to repeatedly ask the staff to turn the heat lamps on to stay warm.
5. The food was cold (ambient temperature was crazy cold!) and not enjoyable at all.
6. I felt terrible for the staff who was tying, but it just didn’t cut it.
It will take a very long time for my to get over this hideous experience.
