Normally a fan of the enterprise. Disappointed by service (sub par for the place) and setting (it was freezing cold), particularly in the face of a really big bill.

Everything was great on a very busy night in December 2021. The food was excellent, as was the knowledgeable service. The wine list is well structured with lots of reasonable and high end choices, showing wines from different regions of Italy and elsewhere, and putting them in sequential order from low prices to high. Not something that one sees every restaurant where they bounce around from high to low. Prices for the meal and the wine list are reasonable for a restaurant of this calibre. Look forward to going back another time.

We, my daughter who is a doctor relocating to NY, and two other women arrived promptly at 5:00 just as the restaurant was opening. We were actually the fist ones to be seated and were shown to the worst table in the house (right next to the open and very busy service area). I do not know which was more insulting - being seated at that table when every other one was open, or having the waiter tell us how lucky we were to be at the "best table" in the house. At the request of my dining companions I did not insist on being moved.
As we left I noticed that the 2nd worst table (the one next to ours) and the table right by the busy entrance we both occupied solely by women. I am pretty sure that was not just a coincidence.
I have been to the Leopard many times with friends that always included men and always had a good table.
I took my daughter to The Leopard so she could experience "old world" dining - I guess she got it!

Cafe Des Artistes used to be one of regular places to dine. It’s been many years and my return visit couldn’t have been any better!

Food and the service was outstanding!

The Leopard was a fabulous experience. Our group of 3 was greeted warmly - although this is a “fancy” restaurant, each staff member and our waiter in particular were extremely friendly, helpful, gracious and accommodating. The food and drinks were delicious. And the murals adorning the walls (painted by a friend’s family member) have been lovingly restored and are beautiful. Highly recommend.

A beautiful space graced by the murals from the 1930’s and the original Cafe des Artistes - I dined at the original several times and this is a wonderful successor. The sparkling rose was a lovely start along with octopus and several other delicious appetizers. The Dover sole with spinach was perfectly boned at the table and delicious. The pork loin was a large portion and equally good. The polenta with truffles was yummy. And the olive oil cake with blood orange was great. We loved every thing and plan to return soon.

We always make a reservation when we are in town. This time our visit was a post opera meal at a very late hour - the food, as always was exceptional, the staff professional, in the non-rushed, welcoming elegance that we have come to love.

All four of us had the Dover Sole (special that night), and it was delicious. The Brussels Sprouts with the fish were nicely cooked, but we didn't think they were the best accompaniment. A side order of spinach was very good. As appetizers, the spaghetti carbonara was as good as we've ever had (and better than I can make). Zabaglione and berries was made table side, delicious, and very generous.
