Had dinner with friends. The overall restaurant was good and service was excellent. Food was decent. Selections were good. While I am not opposed to expensive restaurants, this one is on the higher side. Not sure of the value for that price.

The quality and friendly staff bring back fond memories of Sicily. Various dishes ordered for the table allowed guests to enjoy the evening at their own pace. Fresh fish couldn't be beat! Long wine list (surprisingly short on some Sicilian favorites). And then, add the...More

Everything was good here but nothing was great. Had a Sardinian pasta to start that was nice. Then a whole Branzino which was bland and accompanied by a heap of broccoli rabe that also was bland. Room was crowded and noisy. Service was fine.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, THE LEOPARD at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as “The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies” (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera.
