it was a great evening! they certainly strive to make this the ultimate dining experience. you hardly have to ask for anything - it simply appears. the food was delicious and the cocktails perfect. would absolutely go back at the next opportunity!

the warm corn salad, burrata special and lobster ravi were especially good!

We had eaten at this lovely restaurant before the pandemic and the food then was outstanding. We expected the same but found it seriously lacking the quality we experienced before. The bronzino was overcooked and lacked flavor even with the olive oil and the leeks were drab and added nothing to the dish. The pasta was neither subtle nor flavorful. The service was mediocre—our waiter was much more interested in the table next to ours where the couple was ordering wines for every course. We also had wine but apparently not enough to warrant fine dining service. We will not return. Sadly.

My wife and I fully enjoyed our recent experience.

From the maitre d to wait staff, all were so accomodating and pleasant while meeting our needs. I was also very pleased with the waiter's knowledge of the wine menu and recommending the perfect selection for my wife.

Lastly, our dinner entrees were exceptional.

We were visiting from out-of-state but will be sure to include Il Gattopardo on our return visit to New York City. We truly had an amazing experience.

We had a completely delightful dinner at Il Gattopardo on Saturday night. We were seated outdoors and felt completely COVID safe. Our server was attentive and friendly, and helped us pick out just the right bottle of wine. The snapper dish was delicious. No one rushed us, so it was our evening. It was all a bit pricy, but well worth it. I'd go there again without hesitation for any special occasion, or just as a break from COVID hibernation.

The food is excellent, the wine selection is outstanding. Our server was delightful. We reserved outdoor dining not knowing that the setup is not elegant or comfortable. It is like eating in a plastic box. Distance between tables is so close you can rub elbows with your neighbor. There are tables on the steps that are ideal but it is a mystery how to obtain one. We asked to be moved from the plastic box and were slightly upgraded to a garden view table next to the entrance and beside a serving station. When you spend over $300 for a meal, you should be able to expect a better dining atmosphere. I recommend dining inside or at one of the tables on the steps.

Stunning experience at Il Gattopardo, which delivers as much ambience, beauty, and amazing cuisine as its UWS counterpart Leopard does Artistes. Enjoyed burrata with heirloom tomatoes, then the grass-fed ribeye for two. The ribeye was one of the best steaks I’ve eaten in my life: a near-buttery cut, cooked to medium-rare perfection, and accompanied by roasted fingering potatoes. This was followed by the ‘Delizia al Limone,’ a limoncello-soaked white sponge cake and the cassata - a beautiful Sicilian dessert involving - sheep’s ricotta, candied fruit, and pistachio. Drinks were perfect and our waiter, Giuseppe, guided us through his favorite dishes. Absolutely charming evening.

Horribly costly dinner. The service was extremely slow with respect to ordering the food and receiving it. Once we were served the food was very disappointing. The salad which was the appetizer was saturated with dressing even though I asked for it aside. Then the first course was a pasta dish which was undercooked because the chef hadn’t bothered to properly separate the fettuccine strands. The sauce for the pasta contained tomato peels. We didn’t get to enjoy our overpriced wine because we were swarmed bu small bugs. I told our server and all he did was offer us napkins to cover our glasses. We paid the bill with a generous tip with no discount offered or apology for this fiasco of a meal. We will never return to this restaurant considering how pricey this poorly prepared meal was.

One of my fav places in NYC. It’s cozy inside and but has a terrific energy. The wait staff is excellent and the food is outstanding. We had the specials last night. One was better than the next. The warm seafood salad is full of tender beautiful fish. The home made ravioli was oozing was fresh flavors and was the perfect texture. And then. The bronzino was the very best. Beautiful special meal.
