The ultimate dining experience from service to food to decor. Every aspect of the evening was perfect. There is nothing I would venture to change! I can only add that I look forward to returning soon.

The food was good, but temperature-wise, the Thanksgiving turkey dinner was cold. When I requested white meat turkey only, the waiter responded that the restaurant couldn't do that. I guess he thought better of his answer, and asked the chef who told him it was possible to have white meat turkey only. The chocolate mousse dessert was miniscule. I have been celebrating Restaurant Week and Thanksgiving at The Leopard for the past few years, but this year's event was disappointing; in the past, the staff has always been gracious and professional - not so this time. The maitre d' was unwelcoming and inattentive - he acted as if he were annoyed that I asked him a question. I take into consideration the fact that restaurants are not thriving these days, but I was hoping for a more festive atmosphere than the one I got. There were few diners; when I went inside to use the ladies' room, there were only 2 tables with 2 people each - this was at 4:00PM. The four of us sat outside under a plastic tent, which was comfortable and fine. Based on this experience, I almost hesitate to recommend The Leopard, but I will, due to my pleasant memories of past experiences there.

Elegant in every way and even outside is spectacular--we enjoyed the lasagna and spagettone so much along with lovely Greco-de-Tufo northern white wine.
And the best French 75s cocktails.
Wonderful white government service.

Came here for a little celebration after the 2020 election results. Had to sit indoors next to a couple where a woman was talking loudly the entire time, complaining how people are idiots for not understanding her needs as a diabetic person. Also is definitely more than 25% capacity indoors. Open Table shows lists it as outdoor seating, when it's really indoor seating with "alternative seating" which is outdoors.

Other than that one woman, restaurant is quiet and gives off a fancy vibe, but most people were wearing sneakers and t-shirts which is fine, but confusing. Staff is very nice and attentive.

Food is pretty meh. If I'm paying $30 for a piece of standard lasagna, I want to feel transported into another world. Same with the truffle risotto. Where is the salt?? Why were both things so flavorless?

Come here to be cute with your friends, but not if you want really good food.

We are very sorry you felt that way with your neighbor table, and I wished we knew that your desire to be moved away, and potentially outdoors, where we have several options (sidewalk and covered patio). In regards to our indoor capacity I can guarantee that we take the safety of our guests and staff very seriously, and are stricly accommodating only 25% of our permitted occupancy. We take guests' suggestions very seriously and it will make sure share your food comments with our Chef.

The setting is lovely and our server charming. But there seems to be a problem with staffing - especially in the kitchen. We had to request to order a cocktail and then waited near an hour for our meal( the appetizer came promptly). Our waiter apologized ( something about the hamburger taking extra time to cook?) and offered us a glass of wine. The overall experience was lovely for us but if you have a limited time to dine ( like an hour and a half) this would be a problem. In the past, I have fined inside as the guest of a friend( Borsuk) and the dining experience and ambiance was wonderful. I will come again. You are too great to overlook

During the first 5 minutes it started to rain, and our outside table was moved to a portion of the side walk under a scaffold (thanks NYC). Improvising did not affect our brunch. The food was great, and so was the service. This deserves an encore.

One of the loveliest restaurants on the Upper Wes Side, especially now that they have outdoor seating. Tables are well spaced apart and the street is quiet, with few cars or passersby. The menu is not large but the food is very good and the service thoughtful and attentive.

We have dined at Leopard des Artistes many many times and enjoyed the food. The service is superior and the food is great tasting and excellent quality.
The outdoor dining space was really nice. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people dining here at one time.
Several of us had the delicious risotto. The abbreviated menu had plenty of choices for our group.
We will definitely be back!

This is by far the best outside dining place on the UWS. It almost feels like I was eating out one year ago. The menu is limited but that's understandable. But everything we have tried has been great. Service is particularly outstanding. Also, sitting on a quiet side street is much better than on one of the main N-S Aves. They now have the gas heaters so I'm sure we will be dining here late into the fall. Just can't say enough good things!
