Even though said was a special occasion when we arrived they started to seat us at the table by itself in. A corner a step from entrance check in Horrible spot declined and no one wound up sitting there all night.

Waiters are professional but brusque and when asked for wine recommendations start at 200 dollar bottles. Food was good but if you are not part of the regular crowd pass for somewhere else. Too expensive for such lackluster attention.

The service and atmosphere was wonderful but for this visit the food was bland. The new menu did not thrill and the veal chop that was meant to come with a Marsala sauce had none and the chop was t chewy and bland.
Just not the normal standard for the Leopard which is a favorite of ours

We felt very pampered. The ambience is so beautiful and peaceful. The food was great, couldn’t have asked for a nicer evening. We actually had planned to eat outdoors but it was pouring rain and they were happy to accommodate us indoors and we felt very comfortable eating indoors as the tables are nicely spaced. On the other hand, all the people that were eating outdoors seem to be perfectly happy because they have created sheds that are protective against the weather. We will be back soon!

Bday celebration.
Wait staff overwhelmed with other large Bday party and other tables, and our service was not focused; we had to continually ask to have wine glasses refilled, (white wine was served room temp) and so they put it on ice, but none would check to see that we were enjoying the wine with our food, and so we had to seek them out to refill, and to plead to order additional bottles. Waiter was distracted, didn’t listen that we wanted to start with Antipasti platter for the entire table with our wine, BEFORE our pasta first courses, and then our main courses, they brought out the appetizer platter with our pastas, so we refused the antipasti since we wanted to enjoy our pastas while they were still hot, they basically rushed our evening, and we would of certainly had more wines and drinks, if they had been paying attention to our table of four.

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.
