I visited Leopard at Hotel des Artistes on a Saturday evening in early December with four family members and friends, two of whom are regulars there. It is located on a street that is beautifully-decorated this time of year (lots of white lights). Upon arrival, we were promptly seated at a nice table in the street level area of the restaurant (there is a bar and more seating on a slightly raised level). The restaurant is quaint and elegant at the same time, with gorgeous murals that were painted during the 1920's which were, thankfully, left intact when the restaurant changed hands a few years ago. Our servers were very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The food and wine was really excellent - the beet and gorgonzola salad was a standout favorite for me. The only drawback was that the acoustics were not great. For two people, I don't think it would be a problem, but for five it was a little loud. Also, it is worth mentioning that we were on a schedule due to symphony tickets and the restaurant did a great job of keeping things on schedule without making anything feel rushed. Overall, this is a great spot for a nice night out on the upper west side.
