The food we received was just okay. It took a long time to get our food and then when the larger parties left they started cleaning as if we were not even present!!! Too pricey to be treated as such!!

This is truly one of my favorite restaurants!!!! The food and service are simply exceptional. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just getting together with friends or family, Il Gattopardo is the right choice. They never disappoint. I have taken friends, family, and clients there and everyone raves about it! From pasta (Lasagna is my favorite) to fish and meat entrees, I have never been disappointed.

Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was slammed that night so our total time there was 3 hours. Way too long for our liking, but our delightful waiter helped us not get cranky. Good food and attentive staff.

Fabulous food and fabulous service! I could not ask for a better birthday dinner. Small, intimate setting in a beautiful old townhouse. We had a fantastic waiter in Enzo, who gave us very good advice on the wine and dessert. We will definitely be back next time we are in New York.

Saturday dining at lunch is better than mid-week when the rooms are filled with boisterous men.
We had a table of three and thoroughly enjoyed it last Saturday.

We each ordered the “special” .... pasta with truffle (2)

When presented with the bill we were shocked to see, $190.00
per entre. Seriously?? Pasta with a few truffle shavings?
This was outrageous. Even though white truffle is a delicacy, and we have enjoyed it previously in other establishments both here and abroad, we have be never seen $190.00 for pasta and a few truffle shavings.

Very very posh restaurant and scene. Outstanding food and service. They bring the fish table side and de bone if for you. I recommend the mascarpone sponge cake for dessert if you like tiramisu.

The food was good not great. There was a 30 minute delay between the 1st and 2nd course and the 2nd and 3rd course do to overbooking. Very expensive thus poor value.

Very average restaurant. It looked hopeful and quaint from street level, but the actual restaurant looked like a 1980's IKEA boardroom. No ambiance. Just a long white room.
The service was fine and the menu good. But the food was pretty bland and not creative. I had the Octopus salad and really couldnt figure out what it was supposed to be. A healthy salad or something inventive with Octopus. Regardless, it could have been tofu as it had no flavour. Solo was good. Risotto was very bland with no real flavour except salt. Burrata was very liquidy.
Sorry, just being an honest Italian.

unfortunately i had a reservation and ended sitting in the downstairs area between the buildings. despite the use of portable heaters the area was quite cold and three of our guests wore their coats during dinner. this also made the food cold in a short period of time . for a price tag of close to $600 for 5 people (and two guests only had appetizers) i feel we should have been able to eat dinner in a warm room. i have eaten here numerous times but will not return nor would i recommend the restaurant to anyone in the future-sorry i am not one who typically writes reviews but i think its only fair that people should be warned

Very enjoyable experience. Arrived at the restaurant slightly ahead of reserved time and get seated immediately. The service was warm and professional. Food was presented nicely and with great quality.
I will re-visit again when I'm in New York City.

Much too expensive for the food that we received. The Dover sole was bland and almost everything we ordered was subpar. The only redeeming feature was the service. This restaurant was recommended to me but I would not recommend it to anyone else.

Everything was quite good — food, service, ambience — but too pricey. The waiter should state the price of the specials. We ordered several specials: a simple salad appetizer was $19, ravioli was $33, and turbot was $59. Two persons each ordered one appetizer, one entree and coffee. The tab was $171 before tip. But we did enjoy it. My cafe Americano ($9) was really good!

This is a lovely place to meet friends in midtown. It's an up-to-date yet old-fashioned Italian restaurant. Great, professional waiters; delicious food; and a nice contemporary vibe. Plus, you can even hear the people you're dining with!

Branzino was a little overcooked but still nice. Skimpy on the white truffles and very noisy at least the evening we were there. Great wine list and neat little bar area. I’d give it another shot but there’s a LOT of great Italian in New York.

This restaurant was fabulous for our visit to NYC! Beware, the dress code is a little elevated and if you dress casually you will feel out of place. Most dishes are priced reasonably. Food was delicious. Service was incredible. Overall, a very special experience.
