Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, THE LEOPARD at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as “The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies” (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera.

Pretty place and great location near Lincoln Center. Overpriced, but good food. I was not happy when my daughter ordered Sherbet for $16. Also, the coffee was terrible; the worst coffee I have ever had in my life. It must have been the dregs of the pot. But for$169 for lunch, I think they could have brewed a new pot.

This is a very attractive restaurant in a very nice section of the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It was close to the Lincoln Center where we were going after dinner. The charcuterie board we ordered for an appetizer had great selections. My wife ordered a dinner special which was shrimp, asparagus in risotto. It was good but not what she expected from a high end restaurant. Our waiter and the service were top notch and the restaurant was very nice inside. Maybe we just made poor choices from the menu.

We had the best waiter ever. Although we enjoyed ourselves and the wine recommendations were wonderful, the food was very disappointing. The salad was very salty and both our fish dishes were dry. Very disappointing!

Maitre D noticed that my husband was wearing a cochlear hearing aid and immediately escorted us to a quiet table in the back so he would not have a problem with the noise and would be able to hear easily we appreciated that wonderful gesture we love this restaurant

Elegant and peaceful, a rare quality these days. The food is well prepared, arrives hot. Service is impressive and constant. The people at the table next to me were uncertain about what to choose, spent a lot of time questioning the waiter, wound up sending back their crab cakes. They were politely listened to and offered another dish. I thought they were unreasonable, but the Leopard staff remained helpful and agreeable with these difficult customers. They certainly annoyed me and disturbed the peace of this otherwise quiet place.

My steak was great, the vegetables fine. I took my cheesecake to go because I was too full. It was delivered in a proper container with very nice utensils.

This restaurant respects its customers and good food. I will return.

Haven't been here since it's been "The Leopard". Was pleased to see that the interior was the same only brighter. Learned that the place is Landmarked and that restorers came in to clean the paintings. Food and service was excellent. Nice guitar player there, too. It was Sunday brunch!

We were running late and called ahead. By the time we arrived, we were an hour late. We had an opera to go to and they made certain we had our table and our food in time. They were even apologetic for making us wait even though we were the guilty ones. Superb service and we made it to our show on time. This was our second time dining here and it will not be our last.

The Leopard at des Artistes is a wonderful dining experience from the moment you step in the door and are greeted warmly by the manager and lovely host behind the desk greet you and take you to your table in this gorgeous "movie set" of a restaurant. The wait staff is all friendly and helpful, and the food is consistently delicious. We have been to this U.W.S. restaurant countless times and always leave looking forward to our next visit.

The food was very good. The seating layout is awkward, but the maître d'did a nice job moving us. The tables in the back lounge should not be used unless absolutely necessary. The bar is too loud from glasses, bottles and using the bar sink.
