"I went here for lunch, which is the only way to tolerate this restaurant. The food is fine, but I can't get over the velvet rope-like way they treat you when you walk in, even when you have a booking."

"I was really surprised at how great of a meal I had here. The food was great; I had steak and frites and the the fries were cooked very thin and crispy. But even better was the service. Our guy knew exactly how to recommend the right things on the menu and made wine pairings that were on the mark. Really great experience."

"We had a great evening at The Gander on June 28, largely due to the food and amazing service. The room itself is designed well and the acoustics not so loud. Our server was approachable, funny, met our energy level and was terrific with explaining all the food and wine."

"I was disappointed with the attitude of service. It started at the check in and continued throughout the meal. We were made to feel like the maitre 'd and servers were doing us a favor in helping us. This is disappointing given the high quality of food."

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. <br />

"I loved this restaurant. We went after a performance at Lincoln Center and had the most charming experience. The server was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the food. And the food was outstanding. I'll be back for a post theater experience!"

De Santos is housed in a rustic but chic townhouse in the West Village where you can enjoy Traditional American, International and Mediterranean influenced cuisine from culinary genius Executive Chef Angel Vela. The dark wood and exposed brick dining areas are sexy and cozy. If you're lucky enough to get seated in the downstairs hidden jewel, the Janis, another ambiance will hit your senses as you dine with friends and family, breathing the same air as legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. This secluded speakeasy rock n' roll room is also used for VIP's and larger private parties. The wide marble topped bar is a great place for a cocktail but comfy enough to stay and indulge in a full meal. French doors open to a large outdoor patio with exposed brick archway and awning where, when dining by candlelight you'll feel transported to the Mediterranean. Wednesday through Saturday late hours there's mixed music and surprises. Only at De Santos. Welcome. <br /><br />

"I was not impressed with this restaurant. The food was unappealing - the swordfish included a section that we needed to scrape off to the side that was not edible. Service was not attentive - when we brought this to the attention of the server, he essentially shrugged and made no offer to make it right."
