    I was really looking forward to a great meal, but what I received was less than average. Appetizers were meatballs and a plate of meat and cheese, pedestrian, highly overpriced considering the small amount of food and bland taste. We had gnoochi (it said homemade but I have my doubts), lasagna (reheated in a microwave and tasteless), and a pork chop which was described as delicious. Overall, a disappointing experience and a restaurant I would not recommend. Disappointing and underwhelming

    I haven’t been to this restaurant in over 37 years and it’s better than I remembered! While the ambience still remains classic in the art of times gone by, the food stood out unabashedly. Every course was a gastronomical explosion of flavors! Bravo to the chef and to our lovely server, Gabriella. I didn’t think the restaurant had to improve anywhere but they proved me wrong. It’s a must try if you don’t mind spending the time and a little more than you might anywhere else. It’s so worth it!!

    The food is outstanding. The restaurant is expensive but well worth it --- as far as food was concerned. However, the service could be better. We had to flag down someone -- anyone --to ask for our server. The outdoor seating is wonderful.

    We have been here so many times—it’s honestly our go-to place for a nice evening out. We brought my mother and father-in-law, and for the second time in a row, we were unfortunately significantly disappointed. The service was subpar, the waiter kept calling my mother-in-law “lady”, we felt super rushed—also very strange—and the pasta was over-cooked, over-salted (even after we kindly asked the waiter to convey to the chef easy on the salt for the cacio e Pepe — and the lasagna was absolutely mushy. My mother-in-law’s coffee was definitely not drinkable and cold. She told the waiter it wasn’t great, and she didn’t want more. They INSISTED they bring her more. It still tasted like dishwater. My wife and I are devastated. We love The Leopard, and it was our favorite restaurant in Manhattan for its excellent service and its reliable food. After 2 extremely disappointing dinners of 300+ and 500+ dollars, we are wondering if we will ever be returning. Mostly. We are sad we will be unable to recommend (or bring with us) this one fine establishment to those who ask where they should dine when visiting.

    The Leopard at des ArtistesResponded on June 2, 2022We are as disappointed as you to hear of your experience, especially as a loyal repeat guest, but thank you very much for your comments. As you know, we do pride ourselves, and work diligently at providing the best possible service, menu, and wines. We do hope you will return and let us measure up to the levels of dining that you have experienced in the past with us.

    Wonderful Italian restaurant a stones throw from Central Park. Very professional waitstaff who goes about their business crisply and with great care and attention. The atmosphere includes beautiful murals on the walls. Fish was filleted tableside. Pasta was served Al dente and plates were hot. If you are turned on by rock solid food and attentive , professional service , Leopard should be on your list

    Everyone of our party of 6 devoured their dinners and the deserts, which is unusual for us, since we don't usually order desert. The dinners were so delicious, we went for it and finished with 6 delectables, ending a near perfect night. These days, every restaurant seems to be having short staff issues. I'm not sure if that was the case during our evening but, we did have some long waits between seeing servers. Nonetheless, we will return to enjoy another divine dinner. We've had consistent results at Leopard from each of our many evenings there, and expect the consistency to continue. Many thanks to the chef!

    The Leopard at des ArtistesResponded on May 25, 2022Thank you for your lovely loyalty and comments. We do our very best to maintain a high level of service, and are aware of the industry’s struggles with labor shortages. Come back and see us, and we will do our best to shorten any waiting time.
