From the food to the service to the ambiance ... they were simply perfect!!

I thought my event was beautiful. The service and wait staff were extremely accommodating, and attentive demonstrating their ability to please. My only concern is that they started to clear tables shortly after the cake cutting (around 3:15pm ), which was an indication to my quests that it was time to leave. Although our party wasn't scheduled to end until 4 pm, (to my dismay) the tables had been cleared and the preparations for your next event had begun. Actually, all signs of my party had been dismantled well before 4 pm. I had envisioned that the last 20-30 minutes of the party would have been of guests dancing and enjoying themselves, not leaving. This was a great disappointment to me. Thank you for this opportunity to share.

I love everything about Leonard's! First and foremost, the place itself is very elegant. That's why I didn't bother looking at other venues because the minute I stepped into the lobby, I already fell in love with it! I knew that this is the perfect place for the occasion and I decided that was it! The guests also raved about how beautiful the place is. Secondly, the details - from the linens, table set-up, lighting, and to top it off, our wedding cake - everything is just perfect and in accordance to what I had planned. The staff - our maitre d', bartender, and the entire wait crew - were all so attentive and accommodating to our needs. The banquet was never empty. The food was refilled promptly. The service was very orderly. The food selection was great! (I loved the salmon dish personally.) I heard a lot of praises from my guests about their satisfaction with their meal. This makes up a huge part in their enjoyment. Last but not the least, this celebration will not be a reality and a huge success without the careful coordination and generous assistance of our banquet manager, Joe Carbone. From the first time we consulted with him up to party time, he was there to make sure everything was in order. He even made a few suggestions that contributed to a perfect outcome. I relied on his expertise because he knows too well based on his experience in this profession. I am so thankful that I had the privilege of knowing him and working with him to make this occasion extra special and memorable for me and my family. My overall experience in Leonard's is way beyond my expectations and what I could ever dreamed of. I cannot thank all of you enough for the wonderful time we will forever cherish in our lives. Excellent service, amazing staff! Perfection is an understatement! Thank you all! I am forever grateful. Cynthia Santos 25th Anniversary & 50th Birthday Continental Room January 9, 2016

Leonard's palazzo is not only elegant the staff is quite amazing. Soon as you pull in you feel as if you're the most important person there. The experience was truly amazing. I threw my mother surprise party there and she couldn't stop crying. The staff showed her nothing but respect alone with our guest. The only issue I had was the food. It was bland. The pasta was good, the salad too and so was the steak but everything else wasn't the best. Besides that perfect experience.

I had my daughter's Sweet 16 celebration at Leonard's. It was perfect! My guests couldn't say enough about how beautiful the room was, how good the food tasted and how excellent the service was. Eric, the banquet manager, went over and beyond to ensure that every request was addressed to my satisfaction. My maƮtre de, Diana, was the best! She displayed professionalism, courtesy and most of all patience. I will have all of my future events here.

Just had my daughter's Sweet 16 party at Leonard's Palazzo this past Friday the 18th and it was amazing! Everything was perfect. The bridal suite was ready with food and drinks for the sweet 16 court when they arrived, the reception room was set up beautifully, and the food was delicious. The staff was attentive and courteous to the guests all night and the maitre'd, Michelle, was professional and kept checking on us to make sure we were okay. Thank you Danielle for all your help and thank you Leonard's for making my daughter's Sweet 16 the best it could possibly be!

From the day we booked our event all the staffs of Leonard's are very helpful and courteous in dealing with us as their clients. On the day of the event everything went well and there were no glitches or problems that we encountered. Everything went smoothly and perfectly. Special thanks to Ashley who as an event coordinator made things right and orderly.

Absolutely outstanding venue for an event. I just had my daughter's sweet 16 a few weeks back and the management staff went above and beyond to ensure the event was a success. My family received all outstanding comments from friends & families who attended the event. From the cocktail hour to the main course this venue is second to none. Friends & families of ours are completely committed to use this venue for all occasions. We occupied the penthouse on the second floor and the settings with all the sofa chairs in the bar area presents a Manhattan style sophisticated experience. We are in debt to the staff.

An excellent evening on May I, 2015 at Leonard's Palazzo. Our Kiwanis Club of LaGuardia Airport was extremely pleased with the preparations, service, and food to celebrate our 74th year of Service to Community. The Airline Industry plays an important part to the borough of Queens. Each year we Honor an individual for their contributions, what better place than Leonard's. Thank you from all of us at the Kiwanis Club of LaGuardia Airport.

I had my daughter's graduation celebration very recently at Leonard's Palazzo . From the time I walked in the door, met my sales Representative, I had a good feeling that everything would turned out lovely, she was a pleasure to work with. She answered all my questions, though many, with poise and dignity. The Matre'd was splendid. My guests complimented the food. Yes I would recommend this venue, and use it again. Thank you all, Leonard's!

I had a surprise 25th wedding anniversary for my wife May 15, 2015, and the night was perfect. From day one my planner Danielle was there to make sure everything was perfect. We did a fully bar and buffet and we couldn't have been more happy with all of the choices(especially the Honey Fried Chicken) KILLER! The staff that worked that night were incredible, thank you DiDi. Highly recommended.

Leonard's helped us create a truly memorable sweet 16 for our daughter. The staff was professional , efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. This includes our experienced sales manager, Danielle Amato, she never says no, always finds a way to accommodate. As well, Alex our Maitre'd, who was on hand to help execute every aspect of the dining room, from start to finish. F&B and service were 5 star ! Thank you, we couldn't have done it without your help ! Best JoniRose and Sam

I had my wedding at Leonards in August 2010. Man what an amazing venue and quite affordable. Everything was great leading up to the wedding. Antonio and Ian made my fiance feel like a King and a Queen. The food selection was great and everyone still today talk about our cocktail hour. However the only reason I can't give a 5 was that on the day of the wedding the service was not good. I don't know what happened. The maitre d was not accomodating and really upset my wife. If it wasn't for that Leonards would get 10 stars from me. So if you plan on choosing Leonards please stress to them that you want complete clairty as to what your wedding day expectations should be
