    The ambiance was very special, featuring gorgeous, wall sized painting from the 1920's. we ordered one restaurant week menu where the food was meh and when portions small and one ala carte menu where the food never rose above ok.

    We have always enjoyed this restaurant and were looking forward to celebrating our anniversary there with friends. The service and ambience were, as always, perfect. The food, however, was a bit of a disappointment. The special salad was not at all special, and one of our entrees, a special pasta, was so oversalted that it was inedible. Our waiter handled the problem well, and brought a different pasta dish as quickly as possible (we were charged for the replacement dish but not the original special), although this did mean that the rest of us, who waited, wound up eating lukewarm entrees. Another person ordered the fried raviolo, which sounded wonderful on the menu but was mediocre at best. While it was a pleasant evening, I hope this is not a sign of decreasing attention to the quality of the food preparation.

    The food was uneven. Some was good; but much was not. Service was very nice, but slow and not too attentive. We never got the side dish we ordered. Hopefully, we didn’t get charged for it.

    The food at Leopard Des Artistes is fabulous. The menu changes often, so there is always something new to try. The cold zucchini soup was lovely. Great wine list of Italian wines. The service is impeccable. The outdoor space is lovely and works in all weather and seasons. It is our go-to special occasion restaurant on the UWS.

    My Restaurant Week dinner was excellent. I had the eggplant appetizer, followed by the roast chicken breast with mashed potatoes and tiramisu for dessert. I always have a wonderful experience when dining at The Leopard.

    Although the service was extremely professional, and the table linen a pleasure, the food was disappointing. The eggplant was bitter, the cold zucchini soup was tasteless and the chicken was on the dry side. Even the complimentary biscotti were humid.

    Had dinner here before a show at Ambassador Theater. Food was amazing. Beautiful spot with murals from the 1930s. Food was outstanding. We had the gnocchi, which was surprisingly light and delicious and the tagliatelle ragu. All very upscale and efficient, which was great for helping us be on time for our show.

    On the whole, I would have to say that we were disappointed. We knew before we went that it was a very pricey restaurant, with a good rating, so we expected pretty excellent food. Roast chicken, with a price tag of $50, was over cooked. My husbands fish, which was beautifully presented, had very little flavor. When asked how my dinner was I told Nicolo the waiter, that it was over cooked. He seemed shocked and said he will have to tell the chef. Nothing was done to address the problem. A complementary desert would have gone a long way to make us feel that we were heard.

    Wonderful experience. Enjoyed a pre-ballet anniversary meal here last evening. For appetizers we selected the crab salad which had the most exquisite textures. The petite peas were cooked yet still had a lively bite. We had delicious pasta (perfectly al dente) and branzino (grilled to perfection) for entrees. Our server expertly deboned the fish. The desserts of olive oil cake (soaked with cherry compote) and flourless chocolate torte were simply delicious. Finally, homemade biscotti were presented with a small chocolate plaque on which “Happy Anniversary” was written. Hope to return soon!

    The supply chain crisis has obviously resulted in increased prices yet the food did not rise to the occasion. The server was exceptional. She was courteous, friendly, efficient, proactive, attentive yet quite professional. The ambience was marred by one issue addressed in the private note.
