"The whole experience as soon as you step out of the car is amazing. The New Leaf Restaurant offers a quality menu for your buck. Food is good and menu is kept short. Easy to choose if you are not a complicated eater.
I would recommend it if you are looking for something quieter that the usual pub or restaurant noise level in all of NYC.
Love the Burger and French toasts are my favorite.

"I was excited to try the New Leaf after it's brief closure. I was so disappointed with the service my friend and I received at the bar. We felt ignored, both bartenders were rude to us, not a smile, not a "hello", not even silverware when our food arrived. Oh, and I had to ask for my drink 10 minutes after ordering it. The food was wonderful however, the service was so bad I will not return and will never recommend this restaurant. I hope they replace their rude bartenders with friendly ones - as I would love to come back (and to feel "welcomed")."

"The food was excellent. We were there for a Sunday dinner. There was a mix up on the order as the kitchen had run out of grouper but we were compensated with other delicious entrees and comped a bottle of wine and desserts. The host was more than gracious. We will be back."

"If you are visiting The Cloister Museum in Fort Tryon Park, make sure and walk down the park path to this restaurant. The big dining room was taken over by a special event so the bar area was crowded. I had a crab cake sandwich which was delicious. Great history and ambiance."

"It's a lovely place in a lovely (and isolated) setting, which makes up for a lot. The food was mostly just okay. Grilled octopus was a standout, and the spinach-artichoke dip was way better than you'd get at TGI Friday's. Mashed potatoes were also excellent. But other food was underseasoned. The cheese plate was meager, just two kinds of cheese. And a dish listed two different ways on the menu turned out to be almost the exact same dish, just a little different garnish on top. (The server should have known and warned us.) Food was extremely slow coming out of the kitchen, which we didn't mind too much because we were chatting a lot. But it took way too long for a normal dinner.
Our server was trying very hard, but clearly needed much more training on the food and on serving in general. He asked if we wanted dessert while we were still waiting for our mains, and then dropped the check after the mains were cleared without asking again about dessert (which we DID want). It took a few tries to get silverware when we needed it, but the runners and bussers were also trying hard to be helpful. A manager was walking around a lot, but seemed ineffectual. Management needs to train everyone better, and the kitchen has to work much faster.
I'll probably go back because of its location in the park--you have to go pretty far out of the park to find anything else. I just hope the service and food improve."

"Beautiful room, peaceful setting, attentive service. Best item: excellent avocado toasts. Veggie burger, disappointing. We wished they offered some brunch items for weekday lunch, but as is usually the case, they don't. Desserts overpriced--$12-14?!"

"Very, very slow service. Struggled to get someone's attention to place order. About 40 minutes for a cup of coffee. The waiter shrugged and said "We have no mugs, what can I say?" We won't be back. What can I say?"

"We had a reservation for four at 6:30. The restaurant never got "packed" and we had a fantastic and relatively quiet dinner. The food was delicious and came out fast, but the bread (cheddar pop-overs) are $7 if you ask for more. I will definitely go back for lunch or dinner again."

"Eating at New Leaf is always a highlight of our trips to the Cloisters! Be sure to reserve as it can get busy. A wonderful spot and always nice wines by the glass to go with your meal. In multiple visits we have never been disappointed."

"We found New Leaf when we were looking for a place to have lunch near the Cloisters on a Saturday. It was very busy on a nice Saturday so you should make a reservation. It is tucked into Fort Tryon Park making for a lovely walk between the museum & restaurant.
We discovered that there was only a prix fixe brunch menu at the time - but that was fine with us as there were plenty of choices available.
The servers were friendly and the food was good. One of the eggs of the Eggs Benedict was a bit too done, but the dish was still good. My husband ordered the huevos rancheros and thought it was also good.
We ordered some beignets for dessert (they added a candle when they learned it was my husband's birthday, which was very nice) - the beignets were not like the kind you get in New Orleans, but rather a more dense, cake-like consistency rolled in cinnamon & sugar (a flavor more akin to churros) and were accompanied by two dipping sauces: Salted Carmel and chocolate.
We enjoyed finding this restaurant and were delighted to be able to enjoy a walk in the park with lovely views after dining. We look forward to going back to this restaurant.

"The person who I believe is the manager and the hostess were very unhelpful. They seemed to think their job was to keep out people (like a Manhattan night club), rather than try to help people. It is too bad because it's such a charming area/setting, and the treatment was at odds with such a pleasant experience at the Cloisters, in Fort Tryon Park, etc. The wait staff, however, was super - attentive and helpful in every respect."
