this is an absolutely lovely setting-- we ate outside, and it was peaceful and beautiful; surely not to be taken for granted in New York. The food was very ordinary; verging on embarrassingly so. But the service was great, and we had a wonderful evening. Go on Sunday when you can bring your own wine, You'll be very happy.

My wife and I selected the restaurant to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary, and we were very pleased with our choice. The food was excellent, though the spinach that came with my veal chop contained too many stems.

Other than that, the service was great, with the result that we have a wonderful time.

We had an absolutely wonderful dining experience at The Leopard at des Artiste. Our server, Gabriella was welcoming as well as extremely attentive in making our experience so delightful. The four of us in our dining party were very much satisfied with our appetizers and meals. Our only complaint, which management should address, is the dress code. For such a fine dining venue, jackets for men should be required or at least collared shirts and no shorts. We observed a party of four dressed in t-shirts and shorts dining at a table near us. We found it appalling and disrespectful that guests would dress as though they were eating at a seaside crab shack. Just our opinion but we find it to be an insult to such a fine restaurant.

We visit NYC once a month and always make it a point to eat at Leopard does Artistes. The food and ambience never disappoint and service is superb. The Dover sole is beautifully prepared. Our friends enjoyed the octopus and fresh pasta.
COVID safety protocols are in place and outdoor dining is even pretty special.

We had our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. Everything was perfect. They even gave us a complimentary happy anniversary dessert which was so thoughtful! The indoor room is beautiful and cozy which is what I was looking for. Thank you to Leopard at des Artistes for a lovely evening.

Brilliant service and well prepared food. I wish their lighting were more like the older restaurant there; subdued and delicate with lights only on the exquisite murals.

The service here is not good.The woman asked me to wear a mask when I went to the restroom while other parties were maskless to go to the restroom. What is the difference?It seemed she couldn’t tell same thing to owners favorite customers.
The owner paid full attention to entertain one party of 4.When we were leaving, he kept talking to them and no one paid attention to us.It was my husband’s birthday celebration but it wasn’t what I expected.
The waiter who took care of us wasn’t heartfelt. He didn’t even try to take pics of us when he brought the cake until we asked him later. I should have chosen other restaurants.Only good thing was food quality. Never coming back.

An elderly man at the bar began a very loud extended phone conversation sprinkled with angry curses.
My table was nearby and it was very disturbing.
I was celebrating my wedding anniversary. I asked the waitress and the manager to intervene which they failed to do. The manager explained that this was a friend of the owner.
After about ten minutes I interrupted him and told him his behavior was unacceptable in a public space. He apologized and left.
The behavior of management at such a fine and expensive restaurant was equally unacceptable

Dined with 2 friends on a Sunday night and as always the service and ambience of The Leopard were first class. It is a gorgeous restaurant. We shared the grilled shrimp and garganelli for starters. All entrees were superb. Veal chops, and lamb chops . I think this is one of the best Italian restaurants in New York.

No fault of the restaurant, but there were a couple of tables of extremely noisy people who weren't wearing masks, naturally. There would be bursts of laughter which are almost guaranteed to contain droplets of who knows what.
Once they left we were still dining long enough to have calmed down and enjoyed the ambience and excellent meal.
