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!

The outdoor section is lovely and on a side street. Service was good except they forgot my Bellini which I had to remind them of to finally get. The avocado toast was good although the bread was a little hard. My guest’s panini was mainly bread. Good, just needed more filling. But I will try it again.

We had the most magical dining experience at leopard des artistes on W67th Street near Central Park. I think they have the best food, the best ambiance and the best outdoor dining in NYC right now. The experience is like dining on a picturesque town square in Umbria. Quite sublime and a must!

It’s important to show your customers that you care about their safety during covid. First, I was told that my outdoor reservation was an indoor table. That’s not what openable says at all. (Opentable advertises this place as an outdoor dining location.) it’s a special occasion, my brothers engagement so I come anymore. Half way through my meal, a ton of people come indoors and end up getting seated. This 25% capacity is not really true here and all the tables are filled. Lastly, on my reservation, I noted this was a special occasion and requested that my brother’s engagement is acknowledged. This absolutely didn’t happen and the service was at best, mediocre. I can’t even begin to explain how livid I am at this place. Called to give my feedback and the manager Henry offered an outdoor table or dessert during an OFF HOUR TO SHOW HIS APOLOGIES. um, excuse me. I didn’t want to write a review but I will now. Safety is critical, I didn’t feel safe and a table during off hours is not going to help. Thanks.

The Leopard has been one our “go to” restaurants for many years. We’re happy they’ve reopened during this challenging time, and we are especially enjoying their cozy set up for outdoor dining. Their attentive service and wonderful food continue to delight us. They have certainly risen to the challenge of the times.

We had a very nice time celebrating 2 birthdays outside at Le Leopard des Artistes. It was actually my 3-year old who passes this place when he returns from the park who was smitten by the beautiful outdoor set-up and asked to come here - we had been (as just adults indoors) and loved it a second time, too!

Dining outdoors feels here like going on a vacation to Paris to enjoy one of its less boisterous outdoor cafes. Flawless service and the brunch menu is very reasonably priced.

Amazing service, beautiful space (we ate outdoors, which was lovely, but enjoyed stepping inside to view the murals). Food was delicious and very fresh. The cacio e pepe was probably among the best I've eaten.

Wonderful birthday dinner, the outdoor dinning was perfect, nice looking terrasse, lovely service, delicious food and wine, we had a very nice time. They even have outdoor heaters which felt very nice as I was a little concerned regarding the fresh temperatures. It is one of our favorites restaurants in UWS.

The restaurant is beautiful. But they should improve the quality of its service because it’s very expensive. First of all I booked a reservation in advanced just to find availability in a standard table. Once I arrived they wanted to sit me outside. They didn’t even checked which had been my choice (anyway they were super nice and they sat me inside). Secondly to make my food’s choice easier I showed a picture of the meal I wanted to the waiter (which I got from the restaurant’s google site) and his reply was kind of rude and directed me to order something from the menu (the photo was from something of the menu). Finally when they served me the food the chicken’s meat was raw inside so I couldn’t eat at the same time as my partner. I’m mindful that this kind of things could happen but it’s dis considerate for the guests according to their high prices.

Definitely one of the more authentic Italian restaurants in NYC, especially on the Upper West Side...any you find usually mediocre at best. What a great find for a little higher end Italian, great food, and ambiance. Service was excellent, pasta and risotto perfectly al dente, beef cooked to requested temperature. We wanted for nothing. Take advantage of their specials...cannot wait to return.

We had a very pleasant dinner at the Leopard. Neither of us had been to Des Artistes in years, and we were both pleased. Some of the dishes seemed a bit old fashioned, but they were nevertheless quite good. It was perfect to sit outside under the trees on West 67th St. Lovely service although the waiters were stretched a bit with all the tables strung out.
Altogether lived up to our hopes.
