Beautiful restaurant. We had a date night - fixed menu 3 course before going to the opera nearby. Wonderful experience overall.
A beautiful, romantic restaurant with superb food. Love Sunday supper when one can bring one’s own special wine
$$ treat. Not for the faint of wallet, although there is a $50 "Taste of the Leopard" menu that has a number of options from which to choose. We began with very good vegetable arancini for the amuse-bouche. The vegetable risotto was delicious, the Dover sole filleted and plated at table was excellent, the tiramisu with mascarpone was one of the best I've had, and the bottle of Gavi di Gavi that my friend and I shared was perfect. I would have exposed the beets in the beet salad rather than hidden them away beneath the greens, and the crumbled crunchiness of the sardines with the bucatini diminished the identity (and flavor) of this as a fish dish. Waitress readily offered to bring half-servings so we could sample several menu items without stuffing ourselves. We sat away from the main room in front and so our dining experience was absent the "Fantasy Scenes with Naked Beauties" murals by an early resident of the Hotel des Artistes, which are delightful or kitschy, depending on your point of view.
Our table of six had a very enjoyable pre-theater dinner, with attentive service, not rushed but still aware of timing to complete dinner. Salads as well as the octopus appetizer were fresh and tasty. Pasta was done just right; the swordfish, always a favorite, had a delicious olive and tomato dressing, and the rack of lamb was nicely seasoned. Wine listings are not extensive, but provide plenty of choice and price-points. The coat-check routine seems much more efficient, and completed a fine experience.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Leopard on Friday night with a friend who was visiting from out of town. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine, ambience and very professional service. Our friend was most impressed with the dining experience which we knew would be very special! Looking forward to dining again soon at The Leopard
Not sure what I expected, except the murals and history. Absolutely perfect evening, low noise level, just enough space to be intimate, over the moon cocktails, fabulous cuisine. Impeccable service. Will be in my list every trip to NYC now.
What an incredible & amazing place! Awesomely beautiful interior with frescoes - the most delicious food, the kindest & most friendly & knowledgeable servers... Jose was terrific and has worked at the restaurant since it was renovated years ago from its original Cafe Des Artistes... we had been there 20 years ago and the renovation is superb & retains the beauty of the original in a modern reincarnation. The chef is extremely talented and made our entrees gluten free with zero problems, questions or fuss. The fennel & mushroom side was so original and good! As was everything. This is a remarkable restaurant and we will go back each time we visit the City!
Our favorite restaurant when we are in nyc. The menu and staff are outstanding. It’s cozy and welcoming.
Delightful experience all around. Food as good as a top flight restaurant in Rome. Memorable!
This is a hidden gem on W 67th Street; the atmosphere is upscale and soothing; the food is fabulous. This is a quiet place, not good for children. The staff is very attentive. Food is moderately priced but the wine is pricy. This is perfect for a special quiet meal! We go here every time we come to New York!
Upon arrival at Leopard our tables was not ready and was asked to have a seat at the bar.
We were in a great mood from just leaving a wonderful jazz concert ..Feeling it was not a problem to start our dinner off with a special cocktail.
Upon arriving at the bar there were plenty of seats so we sat and waited patiently for the bartenders greeting. There was none we waited patiently and finally was as for our drink selections.
The bartender was truly not personable nor Interested in us as customers.
She had a bad cough covering her mouth and then directly proceeded to continuing on with preparing drinks orders for the table servers.
When it was finally our turn to have our drinks prepared, I politely ask if she could wash her hands. She obliged but with an attitude..
After the 25 minute ordeal to receive cocktails , I was wondering what happen to my greeter at the front door and did she forget us .
I got up from my poorly served cocktail and went over to ask about our table and was told we were just coming to get you?
The manger sincerely apologized many times for all. He was in agreement and had informed this was not the first complaint he has had to deal with from the bar.
The recommendations from the Manager for food options were outstanding and we forged on and both enjoyed our dinner. All was wonderful.
Upon leaving and using the restroom, I sadly find the bathroom in disarray. Paper towel strewn on the floor, urinal not flushed and floors wet.
Not very inviting..
Unfortunately, I am starting to feel that all of the above mentioned is just the norm and a customer is just made out to be the problem to they speak up to say what’s not right....
All we really really expected form Leopard was the cozy atmosphere, warm invitation, wonderful food and a clean bathrooms?
My wife and I chose The Leopard at des Artistes for our wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend.
Christopher was a great sever! We lived the decor and the food was delicious!
The cuisine in Services was out of this world! Friendly, professional, excellent food and service with a Southern Italian flare!!
The best food we have ever had there. Truly outstanding in New Yor City!!
Elegant yet comfortable. Gldeliciois food and creative. Highly recommend this for couples. No kids.
Christopher is a really fantastic waiter. You do not often get waiters these days who enjoy their work as much as he does. He is really a professional with lots of knowledge he loves to share. we really enjoyed our meal.
Our appetizers were both good but we both had pasta which was a bit bland.
This restaurant is extremely expensive and the food did not match to the hype... AT ALL. The meat and cheese appetizer - salami, prosciutto etc, was sub par at best. The veal Milanese was actually very well prepared and delicious. The desserts were not worthy of a 3 star restaurant never mind one of this supposed caliber. They sounded delicious and were heavy and uninspiring. In addition, the red wine choices by the glass were obnoxiously expensive and frankly not good. Wine by the glass should be easily drinkable. It’s not expected to be the best. But at $27.00 a glass it should be truly outstanding and immediately drinkable. This was not. I am a well traveled woman, used to dining in amazing restaurants around the world. I have seldom felt so resentful handing over my credit card for a bill of over $400 for 2 people and felt so underwhelmed.
Excellent food and service. A bit pricey and not noisy so very good for conversation
Very disappointing. I can make better pasta than The Leopard can. Even the Caprese salad -- the classic mozzarella-and-tomato appetizer -- was disappointing: the cheese was dry, the tomatoes tasteless. The place was almost empty, by the way, in prime time. I was there with friends from 7-to-9 p.m., midweek. I guess people have figured it out: stay away from this loser of a restaurant.
A friendly, predictably good neighborhood spot for a feel-good dining experience. Friendly and kind servers.
Service was superb. Wonderful food and extras. Very solicitous staff and management. Thank you.
Always consistent. Handy for the Lincoln Centre. Great food and excellent service.
An updated classic. Naked lady murals on the wall are fantastic. I was surprised at how good the food was. I had the bucatini with sardines. Sat by the bar in a quiet spot.
Very clean looking ambiance. Great food. Pace of service excellent
Always spot on — truly pricessionaland always a wonderful experience
Love this place. Always fabulous food and excellent service.
Everything about The Leopard was exceptional: food, service and special attention, ambiance, seating, etc.
Try the Zabaglione for desert. The fruit is plentiful and the texture of the zabaglione is terrific. But then, everything is pretty perfect.
Very good food, a lovely room and Jazz at Brunch. Lovely.
We come to The Leopard every year at this time, and we are never disappointed. The food is fresh, seasonal and very creative.
I found this restaurant while searching on Open Table. I was pleasantly surprised and everything about it exceeded my expectations.
Our meals were delicious, as were the wines. Very enjoyable evening!
We had a very enjoyable dining experience. Thanks to our server, Dusan, who was helpful and solicitous, and to the staff who were attentive in assuring that our water glasses were promptly replenished. The octopus and tiramisu were quite good and were plated beautifully.
The ambience is fabulous but the food is ranging from forgettable to unforgettably bad.
the constant waiters over is more than we could handle
the chicken was tasteless and bland
the piece of cod in 3 course meal was <3 oz
Went on our 54th wedding anniversary. Made it memorable.
Attentive without being intrusive.
Excellent dishes all around.
Lives up to long standing reputation as an excellent restaurant for grownups - formerly the west side’s only.
It was absolutely wonderful!!!
This was a pre theatre dinner. Table not ready on arrival, but only a short delay. No cellphone signal and the staff did not know the restaurants guest wifi code, so my guest for the evening - who was running late - had no way to contact me. Irritating in a restaurant of this quality. Food, however, was excellent and traditionally delicious.
