Authentic, very high end Italian- over the top price wise. Menu solid but not unusual, standard fare, wine list quite over-priced for the usual Italian Brunellos and Tuscans-did I say very inflated! The sommeliere's ego is clearly even bigger than the executive chef's!

Every person working there knew what they were doing, did it well, and with a smile. The food was excellent as well. Good wine list and good help choosing a wine. The only downside was the noise level... hard and flat floors and ceilinsg could use some attention from a sound consultant.

Last night was very disappointing and will probably not go back. For the money we paid for 3 people, which our bill came to over $500.00, service was terrible, it was like we were not there, they were waiting on other tables. The noise level was so loud we had a hard time talking to each other. The food was nothing to get excited about, not worth what we paid. I was expecting a much better experience with the service, food and ambiance.

The event was a birthday the restaurant set !
Ill Gattopardo —
My 25 year background as a chef leads me to this review - which I have never done before.
Wine service was poor by the glass - my first mistake @ 20 dollars a glass.
Half opened bottle brought to the table pouring 20 bucks / sloppy. Keep it at the bar.
Appitzer super expensive 4 bites / poor presentation!
Entree was the better moment that I’ll Gattopardo had - rack of lamb very good - ordered med rare - came to table very close to raw - chewy because it was under cooked.
Veal dish of my guest was very good - old school clean tasty.
Over all defiantly not worth the $260 price tag for 2 people — and I don’t drink !! Lol

My fiancee and I were in town for the week and looking for some great Italian food. This restaurant was highly rated and a relatively short walk from our hotel on Central Park. The food was outstanding. The service was perfect; not hovering but there when we need the wait staff. Quiet dining, easy conversation partly because we ate early to get to a play and beat the rush. It was a great experience and we will be back. Brent & Deanna

We stumbled on this restaurant last year and it's just wonderful, a neighborhood gem, unfussy, comfortable and lovely. Great food, that's always fresh and delicious, with personable, yet stellar professional service, and the wonderful wines I've tried here have become my favorites. I could eat here every day.

We went to Il Gattopardo for a Sat brunch for the jazz. Every single part of our experience was excellent!! I cant wait to return at our next trip to the city. The tomato soup with basil was amazing. We had the frittata and omelet, both which was tasty. The food was served fresh and hot and the staff is very attentive. The music was lovely. Highly recommend!

Lovely food and service! We went in for the dry-aged Rib-Eye we saw on the menu as we were strolling. Alas, we returned on a holiday Monday and they were out of it following the busy weekend. The dishes we selected were delicious and would have been a shame to miss. Branzino with escarole and olives was beautifully flavored moist and awesome as was the Clam Linguine. We'll be back.
