    Excellent food and service!! I went with a friend for dinner before going to the opera. We had the grilled calamari and grilled octopus followed by the branzino which was a dinner special. I cannot wait to go back with my husband!

    Outstanding dinner. Even though I was a single I was treated like the most important guest in the room. Service was excellent. The calamari appetizer was perfect. The pasta with the chef’s special ragu sauce was excellent. Though the noise level was high, it certainly added to the excitement of the room.

    We all had a lovely meal at Leopard but weren't wowed by the food quality for the price. It's rather pricey but the service was great and the atmosphere is beautiful with all those paintings on the walls.
    The Leopard at des ArtistesResponded 2 days ago
    Dear LoveNYC (great name!) - Thank you for your comments, we really appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately to keep up with great service nowadays (training and continuing education) and to offer the best quality ingredients to our customers comes at a high price these days. We do our best to keep cost at a minimum, and I'm sorry you've perceived as pricey. I hope we have a chance to welcoming you back soon at The Leopard!

    Service and ambience were excellent. Our server Gabriella was outstanding, thank you. We did, however, find it to be overpriced . My entree was fine but husband ordered the Dover sole and felt for $80, it was unimaginative.
    The Leopard at des ArtistesResponded 2 days ago
    Dear Caroline - Thank you for your kind comments on service and ambiance. The Leopard is indeed a special place! Unfortunately the cost of real Dover sole flown from Europe twice a week is very high. It's certainly one of the most expensive items on our menu, but we can assure you that we serve the best Dove sole available on the market, and a whole true Dover sole, grilled on the bone and drizzled with fresh lemon, is arguably as good as it gets! We hope to welcoming you and your husband back soon. Cheers!

    Wonderful food with great menu! Many interesting options it was challenging to choose. Favors and presentation exceptional. Tiziano was very attentive to everything. The only critique would be that although the team-style service was well executed, we never really knew who was our waiter, and no one consistently checked on the progress of the meal or if we needed anything. (Would have ordered wine, no one inquired about the entrees). Great restaurant and will repeat!

    Had to go back again as the food and service was so good. Tried several items and they are all tasty, fresh and come out hot. Lepard at des Artistes will now become one of our regulars when attending an event at Lincoln Center.

    Lovely atmosphere, beautiful murals on the walls and lovely floral arrangements. The cuisine is top notch, the wine selections are appropriate for what is being served, and the after dinner drink selection is wonderful and varied (8 different grappa selections is a nice plus). A nice way to spend an evening in New York. Recommended.

    Our lunch at The LEOPARD at es Artites was a superb afternoon for all 4 of my guests at my requested round table. Our servers, Alex and Roberto, were spot on throughout the entire lunch. Manuel took care of all of our all requests with flair and a smile. The food was deliciously served in beautiful surroundings. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon - relaxing with friends, as we were serenaded by a talented guitarist and bass player. Molte grazie!

    First, let me say how amazing the space still is. The murals and ambience are simply incredible. The modern take since the refurbishment brings the bygone era into the contemporary age. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the professionalism and service orientation were all impeccable! We were attending the opera at 8 and had a 6:00 reservation. Some of our party arrived at 6:20 due to train delays, but there was still plenty of time to settle in and get on with ordering. Friends who were at the bar were enjoined with late comers in the alcove adjoined to the bar. That was the only unsatisfactory part of the experience and the reason for less than top marks. It was simply too loud to comfortably hear our own conversation against the ice shaker and in the raised space where we felt far away from the delightful experience of dining here yet presented with all the staging, conversations, and overflow from the main room. If I dine here again, I’ll INSIST on sitting in the main dining room or not at all.

    We’ve now come back to the Leopard perhaps six times and our enjoyment is still so renewed each time. Perhaps it’s always our pleasure to see how our guests are delighted to be introduced to such a special place. Last night we had important milestones to celebrate, a lot to discuss over a truly amazing meal, and by the end we were absolutely sure we had overstayed our welcome, but the staff was beyond gracious until we finally let them close up. We’re waiting for any next excuse to go back.

    This is an amazing restaurant. The atmosphere is subdued, resembling a cafe in the thirties with original drawings on the walls. The staff was amazing. The manager came over to introduce himself. We had a nice discussion. The maitre d’ also would come over from time to time to see how we were doing. Our waitress, Andrea, was engaging and very pleasant. Her recommendations on point, from the wine, to the main courses, to the dessert. We had the octopus, dry juicy and the beet salad for starters. My whiffed had the branzino while I had the ragú neopolitano. Both really delicious. I highly recommend the olive cake. The experience was well worth the price.
