    The ambiance was nice and the service was fantastic but the food was nothing special. I had the risotto of the day which was a little watery and could have had more flavor. The chocolate cake for dessert was dry. It was a nice restaurant but the food didn’t meet expectations.

    We eat often at the Leopard and it is always really nice. Excellent food and great service in a lovely atmosphere. It’s a bit pricey, especially for the main courses, but so are other similar places these days.

    Restaurant week menu was $60 for 3 courses. Apps - chose meatballs, alright. Soft and nice but didn’t particularly stand out. Mains - ragu pasta was okay. Nice to have peas in it. Again, didn’t particularly stand out. Another main was cuttle fish - extremely salty. We did think about asking to make it again, but thought maybe eating with bread would help. My partner gulped down water so much and emptied the tall glass of water twice just to go through his main. desserts - both of us had tiramisu. We both thought tiramsu was their best part of the meal. Service was great and general ambience very nice. Really wanted to like the place given it’s in the neighborhood and make it a regular spot, but we left very disappointed.

    Par excellence for the most part! It was restaurant week so I appreciated & loved almost everything. I just wish they had a few more pasta dishes to choose from for the main course. The Papadella dish was just okay but not up to the standards I expected. The appetizer and dessert were fantastic!!

    Delicious food, great ambiance, fantastic service! We were able to go in and out on time for the Met Opera. As appetizers, burrata and sformato were delicious. Branzino and the penne pasta special were perfectly prepared, and served. The portions are good size. Tiramisu was great as well.

    The restaurant is lovely and sophisticated. small and well lit. a classic New York spot. We had the Restaurant Week 3 course menu. Sadly I do not think it was up to The Leopard's standards. Salad had clearly been dressed awhile before it was served. So it was wilted. My companions meatballs were passable but nothing special. We both had cuttlefish. and to be honest I felt the same as the meatballs. OK But honestly nothing special. Deserts however were exceptional. Tiramisu and Chocolate cake. I would say try the restaurant but give the regular menu a try. The Restaurant Week menu was over priced and underwhelming.

    Service was erratic - no one assigned to our table so random servers would stop by from time to time. We were given duplicate “compliments of the chef” starters and were frequently without water. My wife’s fish was so room temperature that she basically did not eat it… we skipped dessert… otherwise a nice place..

    Extremely disappointing. We reserved an indoor table for two and were offered the absolute worst table in the house. We asked to be switched and the only option offered us was outside so we took it and it was much more spacious and pleasant. Unfortunately the service was atrocious as they were totally understaffed with one water handling 8 tables. I’ll give them four stars this time only because the food was quite good as usual. But i wish we had gone somewhere else for New Years.

    we were seated first (5:00 pm reservation) at the only two top in the place, by the entry to the kitchen. we noticed that by 5:45, there were four other four tops with only teo patrons. Our table was unsatisfactory to say the least. we were eating on top of each other. it was so cramped, we did not even order wine. Shame in the maitre de punishing a couple like that we such an inadequate table

    We enjoyed visiting the revamped Cafe des Artistes after a few years. We haggled a bit over the seating, but finally were given a great table with fun neighbors. The food was enjoyable although we sent back the flavorless, uninspired pork chop paired with mushrooms (not the porcini mushrooms on menu) which should have been so good!
