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.
It was great place to enjoy the Sunday brunch with jazz music
Good, but the lack of Michelin stars is there for a reason
My wife and I went to the Leopard for NYC restaurant week which we usually try to avoid, however we wanted to try the restaurant as it has a lot of history. The food was good but vastly over seasoned (salt), on the positive side they had items from their regular menu and not substitutes. However there are a vast number of restaurants in NYC that are a better deal.
The experience was wonder.Excellent food, Great atmosphere . I will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Outstanding service and food. Wonderful environment. Delightful!
The Leopard features authentic Italian food served by professional and friendly staff in a beautiful setting. Truly a wonderful restaurant, a standout in a city full of very good to excellent Italian restaurants. My linguine with clams transported me to the Isle of Capri.
The food is mediocre. It certainly doesn't compare in quality to the previous Cafe des Artistes. I could have had a better Halibut at a corner restaurant. It was dry and without any real taste. Perhaps I should have ordered something else. The frescoes and the ambiance are great, but that can only carry you so far. Disappointing.
I was seriously disappointed. The salad did not seem fresh and, despite an appealing melange, was rather dull in taste.
The risotto was gummy and the sauce, mixed with tiny bits of seafood, was also dull.
Had dinner during restaurant week. The menu was varied and there were enough good dishes to choice from for each course. The ambiance was lovely. The restaurant has beautiful art work and lovely table settings. The service is outstanding. Our waiter was exceptional. Each course was served very professionally. You knew you were in a quality restaurant. I would go back during the year for the regular menu. I great dining experience!
The atmosphere and murals are peerless. We were there for a birthday brunch. The food was mediocre and the portions small. The topper was the special soup on a one-hundred-degree August day,hot lentil! Was anybody on the job?
My review is simple: GO HAVE A MEAL HERE! Everything was perfect...the food, the wine and the service.
I hadn't done restaurant week in many years but when I saw the menu I had to try it. WOW, it was great.
I ordered a wine they were serving as a special by the glass without asking the price. The waiter told me that it would be $30 per glass before pouring. This was fine with me but I really really appreciated that he told me.
I have been to The Leopard many times for brunch, and have always enjoyed the occasion. It is one of the few UWS restaurants where the noise level is sufficiently low so as to permit easy conversation. On my last visit, the waiter was extremely considerate in permitting me and my guest more than ample time to chat, without any pressure to conclude our meal. That meal, as usual, was good; the setting was beautiful; and the live music was tasteful and unobtrusive.
We had a wonderful meal. I especially enjoyed the trout.
The Leopard is very attractive. However, the food was very disappointing. The Veal Tunata was like shoe leather and the fish was so full of vinegar that i had an upset stomach when i left. The Granite didn't look vaguely like the granite from Sicily.
excellent restaurant with great food . loved restaurant week
Fabulous service, food and wine selection ❤️🍀👍🏻
