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.
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.
Exceptional service! Enjoyed wonderful food with beautiful presentation!
A classy NYC restaurant. The murals that defined its prior life as Cafe des Artistes are worth a visit alone and define a sophisticated ambiance. The food is a wonderful exploration of the spectrum of Italian cuisine. A specific treat is the table side preparation of zabaglione, an increasingly rare opportunity even in the most Italian of Italian restaurants. Although expensive, there are budget options such as the BYO on Sunday, with no corkage fee. A great place for a sophisticated dining experience.
Perfect execution from start to finish. Excellent wine list and delicious food.
The restaurant is a favorite ours. We typically come here ore opera several times a year and one weekend. This evening we had excellently efficient service and the food was top notch. The noise level was much louder than usual as a group of business buddies had way too much to drink are we’re loud and rude but hard to stop. I we usually dress fir tgevioera and did notice several poorly dressed people coming here with. Jeans and an untucked shirt. Totally out of place so ierhsos a dress code supplement could be added to uour. Web site. I know it is a difficult issue but it is noticed by all.
Haven’t been here in years but it is just as good as ever. A true dining experience. Wonderfull
We live in the neighborhood but this was the first time we went there. The food was delicious - beautifully plated. Attentive service but not overbearing. Tables spaced far enough apart to have quiet conversation. We went for a special occasion - our anniversary - but will definitely return often - it's a neighborhood gem!
LIke dining in Italy-- a European flair. Attentive service. Quiet, lovely, delicious.
Still the original murals from Cafe Des Artistes.
Just lovely all around, from decor to food to jazz to service.
Lovely atmosphere, gracious service, delicious food. Good choice for those attending performances at Lincoln Center.
Consistently excellent old school service. Reliably well-executed cooking. Great wine list.
Always on my list of the 5 Best Restaurants in NYC. If I have a business dinner, or a quiet dinner for two — this is my first choice.
Fantastic Italian cuisine with the ambiance of 1920’s NY. And you can walk-off dinner in Central Park!
Was a Lovely time , Great Food , lovely Service , Beautiful setting , all in all extremely pleasing
Every time I come here, I wonder why we don't come more often: the food is terrific, the atmosphere divine, and the service at level that is consistent through this elegant and small "chain" of restaurants (Gattopardo, Mozzarella e Vino, and The Leopard). The side-street setting it really cozy, and the murals never cease to amuse. It' perfect!
I have always walked by the restaurant, and it always called my attention. We reviewed the menu when it was New York restaurant week and it looked good. Then we read about its history and their jazz-brunch, and it called more our attention. And so we decided to go.... food was amazing, service was great, The ambient and paintings on the walls are real art, and the music gave that final touch so all your senses are stimulated to enjoy a great moment....
Great for business - very quiet...
We have eaten here many times because we live in the neighborhood, but this time we were disappointed in the entrees. The lobster in the risotto was tough, my raviolis were under cooked, the veal chop was dry and over cooked, the Dover sole was very good. Our salads were also good.
Just moved here. Looking for spots. Amazing food and great service.
The dinner and service was outstanding as usual.
Impeccable service. Food was perfect. Atmosphere is enchanting.
If the restaurant doesn't want to participate in Restaurant Week, then it shouldn't. The starter and main course (caponata and pork loin) were mediocre and the pork main course was miniscule. Ditto my guests's swordfish, albeit a little more generous than my main course serving. Once I trimmed the fat from the wafer-thin slice of pork there was the equivalent of the amount of one slice of bacon. If the purpose of participating in RW is to encourage customers to return, The Leopard certainly failed in that goal. I recognize that the RW portions are small and restaurants don't offer luxury items but this was ridiculous. I hadn't dined here for a few years and thought it would be good to add back to my list of restaurants near o Lincoln Center . Clearly, however, I haven't been missing anything.
We had international visitors coming to ny for a reunion. This was a lovely place to entertain them. You could actually hear the table conversation without shouting and the service was gracious and flawless allowing us to focus on our guests and still enjoy a good meal.
The restaurant is beautiful and welcoming the food is delicious the tuna carpacio the zucchini soup and roast baby pork was delicious and you offered etna rosa my favorite italian wine to enjoy during the meal
We had a wonderful time
I'm always pleased by all three Gattopardo restaurants -- great ingredients excellently prepared every time. This location is especially nice, thanks to its quiet lighting and meandering layout. The wait staff's over-the-top attentiveness makes the meal flow without a hitch -- and sets a benchmark that reminds you how precarious the service can be at other restaurants. Hint to male diners: get a little bit dressed up; you'll feel better.
Good food, but pricy.
Food was ordinary
Perfect for any occasion. Wonderful seasonal menu, attentive staff, elegant and with unique charm.
We were treated like honored and welcome guests from the moment we arrived until we left and were given little biscotti gift bag to take home. The food was spectacular, and even the most economical wine selection was above average in quality.
Very Nice with a great atmosphere. The food was really good, the staff were friendly and professional and the decoration inside was really cool with all the paintings
(1) Noise was all but deafening
(2) Restaurant appeared elegant; however clientele were in some cases dressed for the beach: shorts, baseball hats (backward), inappropriate
(3) Entree (swordfish) was OK; however peas were surely canned and grey in color
(4) Outrageous price for 2 cocktails (one each); $17. each. Martini was “rough” vodka, not the brand requested, and contained a full glass of ice, thus dilute.
(5) At one time this restaurant was one of New York’s finest. Will not return there; it’s off the list.
It was just as lovely as I remembered. thanks for the Restaurant Week menu. Great food and service. Wonderful dining experience.
