Pasta was undercooked and a disappointment. This was our fourth of fifth visit and proves that even a very good restaurant can have an off night. We will go back.

The food is excellent, the wine selection is outstanding. Our server was delightful. We reserved outdoor dining not knowing that the setup is not elegant or comfortable. It is like eating in a plastic box. Distance between tables is so close you can rub elbows with your neighbor. There are tables on the steps that are ideal but it is a mystery how to obtain one. We asked to be moved from the plastic box and were slightly upgraded to a garden view table next to the entrance and beside a serving station. When you spend over $300 for a meal, you should be able to expect a better dining atmosphere. I recommend dining inside or at one of the tables on the steps.

Stunning experience at Il Gattopardo, which delivers as much ambience, beauty, and amazing cuisine as its UWS counterpart Leopard does Artistes. Enjoyed burrata with heirloom tomatoes, then the grass-fed ribeye for two. The ribeye was one of the best steaks I’ve eaten in my life: a near-buttery cut, cooked to medium-rare perfection, and accompanied by roasted fingering potatoes. This was followed by the ‘Delizia al Limone,’ a limoncello-soaked white sponge cake and the cassata - a beautiful Sicilian dessert involving - sheep’s ricotta, candied fruit, and pistachio. Drinks were perfect and our waiter, Giuseppe, guided us through his favorite dishes. Absolutely charming evening.

Horribly costly dinner. The service was extremely slow with respect to ordering the food and receiving it. Once we were served the food was very disappointing. The salad which was the appetizer was saturated with dressing even though I asked for it aside. Then the first course was a pasta dish which was undercooked because the chef hadn’t bothered to properly separate the fettuccine strands. The sauce for the pasta contained tomato peels. We didn’t get to enjoy our overpriced wine because we were swarmed bu small bugs. I told our server and all he did was offer us napkins to cover our glasses. We paid the bill with a generous tip with no discount offered or apology for this fiasco of a meal. We will never return to this restaurant considering how pricey this poorly prepared meal was.

One of my fav places in NYC. It’s cozy inside and but has a terrific energy. The wait staff is excellent and the food is outstanding. We had the specials last night. One was better than the next. The warm seafood salad is full of tender beautiful fish. The home made ravioli was oozing was fresh flavors and was the perfect texture. And then. The bronzino was the very best. Beautiful special meal.

So happy to be back at Il Gattopardo! They’ve done a lovely job with their outdoor dining. The service is as wonderful as always, amd the food is wonderful. We split the turbot which came with sautéed broccoli rabe, preceded with a pasta dish with leeks and anchovies. Amazing! Look forward to returning soon.

Chose this for an anniversary dinner. The setup is beautiful. We sat outdoors. The food was great. However, best part was the attentiveness of the staff. Everyone was great. I made the reservation noting the event it was for. They brought our dessert with a candle to celebrate. Would definitely recommend.

I celebrated my birthday at Il Gattopardo and had an incredible experience. The dining room is beautiful, the food is outstanding, and the service was top notch. I also found the prices very reasonable given that every aspect of our dinner was exceptional! I am looking forward to going back and hope to enjoy their gorgeous outdoor dining set up once the weather cools down.
