We had the most magical dining experience at leopard des artistes on W67th Street near Central Park. I think they have the best food, the best ambiance and the best outdoor dining in NYC right now. The experience is like dining on a picturesque town square in Umbria. Quite sublime and a must!

It’s important to show your customers that you care about their safety during covid. First, I was told that my outdoor reservation was an indoor table. That’s not what openable says at all. (Opentable advertises this place as an outdoor dining location.) it’s a special occasion, my brothers engagement so I come anymore. Half way through my meal, a ton of people come indoors and end up getting seated. This 25% capacity is not really true here and all the tables are filled. Lastly, on my reservation, I noted this was a special occasion and requested that my brother’s engagement is acknowledged. This absolutely didn’t happen and the service was at best, mediocre. I can’t even begin to explain how livid I am at this place. Called to give my feedback and the manager Henry offered an outdoor table or dessert during an OFF HOUR TO SHOW HIS APOLOGIES. um, excuse me. I didn’t want to write a review but I will now. Safety is critical, I didn’t feel safe and a table during off hours is not going to help. Thanks.

The Leopard has been one our “go to” restaurants for many years. We’re happy they’ve reopened during this challenging time, and we are especially enjoying their cozy set up for outdoor dining. Their attentive service and wonderful food continue to delight us. They have certainly risen to the challenge of the times.

We had a very nice time celebrating 2 birthdays outside at Le Leopard des Artistes. It was actually my 3-year old who passes this place when he returns from the park who was smitten by the beautiful outdoor set-up and asked to come here - we had been (as just adults indoors) and loved it a second time, too!

Dining outdoors feels here like going on a vacation to Paris to enjoy one of its less boisterous outdoor cafes. Flawless service and the brunch menu is very reasonably priced.

Amazing service, beautiful space (we ate outdoors, which was lovely, but enjoyed stepping inside to view the murals). Food was delicious and very fresh. The cacio e pepe was probably among the best I've eaten.

Wonderful birthday dinner, the outdoor dinning was perfect, nice looking terrasse, lovely service, delicious food and wine, we had a very nice time. They even have outdoor heaters which felt very nice as I was a little concerned regarding the fresh temperatures. It is one of our favorites restaurants in UWS.

The restaurant is beautiful. But they should improve the quality of its service because it’s very expensive. First of all I booked a reservation in advanced just to find availability in a standard table. Once I arrived they wanted to sit me outside. They didn’t even checked which had been my choice (anyway they were super nice and they sat me inside). Secondly to make my food’s choice easier I showed a picture of the meal I wanted to the waiter (which I got from the restaurant’s google site) and his reply was kind of rude and directed me to order something from the menu (the photo was from something of the menu). Finally when they served me the food the chicken’s meat was raw inside so I couldn’t eat at the same time as my partner. I’m mindful that this kind of things could happen but it’s dis considerate for the guests according to their high prices.

Definitely one of the more authentic Italian restaurants in NYC, especially on the Upper West Side...any you find usually mediocre at best. What a great find for a little higher end Italian, great food, and ambiance. Service was excellent, pasta and risotto perfectly al dente, beef cooked to requested temperature. We wanted for nothing. Take advantage of their specials...cannot wait to return.

We had a very pleasant dinner at the Leopard. Neither of us had been to Des Artistes in years, and we were both pleased. Some of the dishes seemed a bit old fashioned, but they were nevertheless quite good. It was perfect to sit outside under the trees on West 67th St. Lovely service although the waiters were stretched a bit with all the tables strung out.
Altogether lived up to our hopes.

Great restaurant for mature/senior citizens that appreciate formal dining. Italian food cooked in Sicilian traditions sets their food apart from other Italian restaurants. Sicilian preparations are excellent. Famous murals of nymphs add a whimsical atmosphere. Service was helpful in making selections. Great for romance or with friends.

Tasty dishes using top quality ingredients, carefully prepared. Don't get that often enough. Excellent waiter; professional yet friendly. Restaurant's outdoor setup is very attractive, all the more so because on a a quiet street. Couldn't think of a better early fall dinner.

The outside dining is the main draw here, the space on the sidewalk is very pretty. The food was fine but really overpriced. When char is $44 there's a problem with the menu. And the bottle of wine we chose wasn't available so the waiter recommended another that was $35 more, not the greatest restaurant form there.
Convenient for locals but even with that I doubt we'd go back.

Large umbrella kept us dry and safe from the light rain and occasional sprinkles on the evening we were there. Tables without umbrellas were moved under scaffolding on the adjoining building. Added another dimension to out door eating. Food was delicious and service was excellent.

An UWS legend is re-imagined as an outdoor dining space. It's a very elegant al fresco option and they did a great job designing the space. Unfortunately, the extremely high prices are not reflective of the food quality. Both the appetizers and entrees were rather bland and unimaginative. The service was ok but I would have expected more guidance from the staff, especially for wine pairings, and better attention to our needs. There are better options at this price point and The Leopard needs to step up their game.
