Amazing meal and impeccable service. One of our favorite restaurants in NYC.
We had an excellent experience here, as always. Both food and service are always perfection.
We have been dining at Il Gattopardo for maybe a decade, now, and it still has the same excellent quality food, wine and service. It is a lovely restaurant, the staff is helpful and knowledgeable (and accommodating - they even charged our son's iPhone while we were dining), the dishes are fresh and beautifully prepared, not precious, but upscale Italian fare that is both authentic and creative. Good bread and breadsticks, a wonderful list of wines, fine dining without any stuffiness or pretense - always a comfortable and fun experience.
Cozy atmosphere, amazing service and fantastic food. Always a must any time I’m in the city!
Wait staff was exceptional and very accommodating for children.it was very elegant.🍷😀👍
Outrageously overrated and overpriced. There are dozens of better Italian restaurants in the city
We visit Il Gatto Pardo whenever we are in NYC. You can’t beat the dining experience. The food and service is impeccable.
Incredible food and service. Had the branzino. Awesome Appetizers excellent. Not our first visit. Highly recommend.
Excellent preparation and presentation. The waiters were attentive to every need. They were will to split dishes and manage the service in a timely and efficient manner. Seasonings were perfect. A bit pricey, but not beyond normal NYC standards.
Lov this place always first class
Live jazz for Sunday brunch to accompany a delicious array of breads, amuse-bouche and cocktails. The Southern Italian speciality breakfasts were fun alternatives on breakfast norms.
Great food - service. A little noisy but nothing more than you'd expect from a NY dinner experience.
Always delicious food. Great service. It’s go-to place for pre-theatre or a normal dinner. Love being there.
Same quality as Marea but without
We visit NYC two or three times a year and always look forward to a fine meal with excellent service. Lucky to have Xavier again as waiter, though all are terrific. Broiled fish was tempting based on past meals, but we were happy with orichette special with tuna and olives. Calm, quiet, friendly, professional and always delicious.
A very pleasant experience. Just one issue, a bit too noisy at the peak hour. I am a person of certain age so you must take my comment with a grain of salt. Next time I would ask for a more quiet table.
Staff knocked themselves out.
We enjoyed a most wonderful anniversary meal. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Great job!!
Excellent food and very attentive service. It has now become my first choice restaurant when dinning in mid-town.
Just what an excellent restaurant should be. Great good. Spot on service. Quiet, talk level atmosphere. .
On the evening that we went, the service was very slow for some unknown reason, whether they were short-handed or there were a few large parties before us. The staff apologized profusely and they gave us complimentary desserts. The pastas has good taste but were all undercooked — we were expecting al dente but all 3 pastas were under. The bone-in ribeye and the Dover sole were both excellent. All in all a good experience and we will go back but I’m hoping the pasta and the timing will be better next time!
Branzino perfectly done. We had a table in the middle of the restaurant, I would opt for one around the back or on the side. The wait staff is professional, attentive, and the food is really great. A wonderful experience.
Food was very well prepared and service terrific!
Have dined here many times of the years, and it is always a fine experience. Service was a bit slow this time, but they seemed busy and perhaps they were short staffed. Always friendly and welcoming, food is great, and a nice wine list.
It was fabulous. The restaurant setting was great. The service was slick and friendly
The ambiance was fabulous with the live Jazz duo
We had the specials and the food was just out of this world.
Next time we come to New York we will be booking ahead
As you can tell we loved it
The food and service were good but the noise level was very high and iwe we’re almost shouting to hear each other.
Marvelous food and impeccable, low key service.
Fab - very Italian chic
We ordered all three of their specials for the evening: appetizer, pasta and main course. Every bite was fantastic. The waitstaff were extremely attentive. There wasn’t a minute that went by with my water low, wine glass under poured or a dirty plate uncleared. There’s a lot of Italian places to choose from in New York, but this one is worth returning (over and over again).
always a great experience- food is fabulous- had the branzino which was one of the best we have ever had, great wines by the glass if you do not want to order a bottle. Service is always warm and welcoming.
We haven’t been here for some time, for no particular reason. The food and service have maintained their quality and it remains a civilized dining experience.
The food is great and the service excellent. But it tool them almost 45 min' to bring our starters out and another 45 minutes to get the mains out (and we repeatedly asked them for both). What should have been a 75-90 minute dinner, turned to be way over 2 hours, of mostly waiting. everything was slow, even getting the check. At those prices, it is just not worth it. Not my first time there, not the first time i am disappointed for similar reasons, not going back again. Food is excellent though, albeit very expensive.
Has never been less than excellent in over a dozen years of regular attendance.
Outstanding food and service. I highly recommend this restaurant
Three of us for dinner, all was excellent. In addition the restaurant had read my special request made through the open table app and had thoughtfully accommodated us.
Most authentic Italian food, service.
Gracious welcome and attention to special requests.
Great place for a business or romantic dinner. Service, food and selections including vegan options are incredible.
The food is always good but the noise level was too high. My guest asked me to choose another restaurant next meal together
Nice staff! Wonderful food!
One of our all time favorite spots. Always have several dinners here when visiting from Seattle.
Always a enjoyable dining experience.
