perfectly cooked pasta, with a bottarga sauce that just melted in your mouth. And the wine pairing was perfect

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at Il Gattopardo. The food was fantastic, the service was attentive (but not intrusive), and atmosphere was comfortable. While the restaurant - like all fine dining establishments in New York - must be suffering financially due to the need to reduce the number of tables, the experience from the patron's standpoint really couldn't be better.

We had such a great afternoon at Il Gattopardo. The service was excellent. Our writer Oscar was a pleasure. The food was deliscious. We sat out side and the set up was lovely considering the situation we are in with covid. Im looking forward to going back to this beautiful restaurant. The inside is also beautiful and very clean . The restrooms were perfectly clean. This is important to me. 5 stars for this place.

A New York Classic that never disappoints. The food and service were outstanding as always. Luigi the som took amazing care of us and recommended the most amazing wine. Additionally their outdoor dining for COVID is one of the best I have seen in the city. Thank you for a magical evening!

Wonderful to return to Il Gattopardo. Like visiting Italy for a wonderful multi-course meal. The service is exquisite, with attention, recommendations and even pairing our wines. Specials are always a treat as is the regular menu. Excellent Halibut Ravioli this time round with Burrata and Octopus as appetizers. And oh the dessert was like being at a bakery and freshly made Cheesecake to end with a wonderful cafe. The seating outdoors and indoors is considerate and sensitive to our current Covid-19 concerns. Wonderful meal, comfortable and felt cared for food and safety. Thank you so much we missed you.

Perfect in every way. We shared a salad and had 2 entrees, sea-bass and home made pasta with broccoli rabe and sausage. The sea-bass was brilliantly prepared and filleted. Wine selection is very good. All was so delicious! The setting is lovely with many plants and well spaced tables. Service is very attentive and pleasant. We had a wonderful experience to top off our morning at Moma. My best dining experience since the start of Covid.

Outstanding dinner, amazing manager and attentive staff.
The food was delicious and the outdoor seating was pleasurable.

Il Gattopardo has always been a favorite and certainly our last visit was no exception.
We are thrilled the energy is coming back to NYC!

Grazie mille Il Gattopardo for making our evening so enjoyable.

Il Gattopardo is FIVE STARS all around. The food, service and ambience were all wonderful! We had 5 courses (Zuppa di Ceci, Insalate, Paccheri Genovese, Vitello Milanese and dessert) and every bite was delicious. The cocktails and wine list were also fantastic. The outdoor seating was beautiful and clearly much thought and attention was given to setting tables up for social distancing. We are looking forward to another dinner at Il Gattopardo very soon!

What a fabulous meal! Our party of 4 was seated outside, down the stairs so we were by ourselves. We shared the eggplant ravioli for our primi and the steak for our secondi. Both were delicious.

It was the first night the restaurant was opened. A great New York experience. I had the cavatelli and it was cooked to perfection. It stormed during the evening and the staff was extraordinary in protecting everyone. Gave us a complementary dessert. This is now my go to restaurant.

A favorite restaurant for many years.
This time it was for an important business lunch.
They messed up the reservation and gave our table to someone else, which they admitted to doing. Instead they seated us at the table opposite the kitchen door. Worst in the restaurant. Did nothing to apologize or make up for it. Restaurant was not crowded so no reason for it. Very disappointing and very unlike their usual attentiveness. Waiter didn't even try to smile. Will think twice next time.

Everything was professionally served and we enjoyed our meals. I had a special of St Peters fish that was cooked on the bone and filleted before it was served. A crispy salad of lettuces and carrots was a light and fresh way to start off the meal. Our waiter, who was delightful, gave us excellent wine advice. The room became a little bit noisy as more diners arrived but all in all it was a serene and elegant dinner.

This was my 3rd time to eat here. The food was a real disappointment this time. I ordered a salad and it seemed tasteless. It just had no taste. I think I was the first salad. My entree was ok, but not anything special. I had lasagna.
My husband ordered octopus and said it was a disappointment, as well. His fish entree was very good. He had cod. We stayed at the Peninsula around the corner, so it was a nice walk and thought it would be a great choice for us, but the quality of the food was not up to par and not worth the high prices at all.
Sorry to say, but think you need to know.

We had two small children with us and the staff was very accommodating to meet their needs. We were there for the Sunday jazz brunch and it was great. Wonderful place for romantic dinner for two or a family outing. They make everyone feel special.
