A word from Bâtard
Drew Nieporent’s long commitment to Tribeca continues in the space that housed the legendary Montrachet and Corton. Chef/partner Markus Glocker’s modern European menu reflects his Austrian heritage and diverse experiences (Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Trotter). Dishes like Octopus “Pastrami,” Roasted Beets Linzer and Veal Tenderloin “Tramezzini” are inventive and delicious. Diners may order two ($55), three ($65) or four courses ($75) - fixed prices that represent excellent value. Managing partner John Winterman, former longtime maître d’ at Daniel, welcomes you to a relaxed setting warmed by golden light and cozy banquettes. The wine list highlights the best of Burgundy; cocktails are expertly crafted.Continued

- OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIPDined on 9/17/2014Quite a comedown from Corton, the previous restaurant at the location. Food -- the veal and monkfish entrees, for example -- is good but not great and in too small portions. The octopus pastrami appetizer scores for its inventiveness (making octopus look like headcheese and taste like pastrami) but, with any real octopus flavor lost, it's a disappointment. Also, for the food being served, some less expensive wines should be available.
- Amazing!OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/16/2014Dinner at Batard was delicious. We had three courses. Chilled corn soup was outstanding as was the pork belly. For dessert they sent out a little scoop of mint ice cream with a candle for my boyfriend's birthday. Portion sizes were perfect for a three or four course menu. Cocktails were well done as well. Milk punch was the perfect pre-dinner drink. We can't wait to go back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The VealOrlandoVIPDined on 9/13/2014The veal was amazing and so was everything else. Great night out with my girlSpecial Features:
- Good But Not Great...PatrickVIPDined on 9/13/2014We went to Batard with very high expectations remembering many memorable meals at Montrachet in years past. Batard was 'excellent' at times, but 'just good' at others, & unfortunately never rose to the hype that surrounded it's opening. Neither did it rise to the level of the Montrachet of old. The mains that we enjoyed (veal and duck) were much better than the starters which were often overthought. When time came for dessert, the much praised Milk Bread was dry and just run of the mill. On a positive note, the service was very friendly & quite efficient. Please know that Batard is not a bad restaurant. I think it has the potential to be so much more than it showed us the night that we dined there. I hope that it rises to that challenge.Special Features:
- Finally a great newcomeraliceVIPDined on 9/13/2014This is one of the rare new restaurants that deserves repeated visits. Considering the high bar of new york restaurants the few notable new places we try although usually good don't merit being added to our repertoire. Batard does. We each ordered different dishes and each one was great certainly 3 or 4 star level. That was 8 different things. The service was wonderful but very low key and casual. Very grown up. The ambiance is especially comfortable with tables very well spaced. All in all a welcome new place in a very historic space.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food good but tiny portions.ilanakiDined on 9/12/2014We ordered the lamb rack for two. It is a misnomer. We each received one lb chop for an additional charge of $20. We were too embarrassed to comment in front of our guests but we won't be back.Special Features:
- nice change from CortoncharlyradVIPDined on 9/9/2014Food as always is outstanding, and it was nice to see Drew in attendance supervising. Corton was a budget buster, but Batard is much more affordable-and if I'm not mistaken, the portions have grown!. The wine list offers some affordable yet great wine choices, and I'm glad the all-white look is gone. Service of course was impeccable. All in all a really nice night out. Drew doesnt dissappoint!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- dinner for two,BATARD,OMGtraveldadfoodieDined on 9/9/2014everything was amazing, everything from the greeting to the service, wine staff, food , the chef is AMAZING a true master at his craft.Special Features:
- a wonderful eveningGerardDined on 9/6/2014we celebrated our anniversary here and everything about our dinner was outstanding - the food, the service, the comfort and great treatment - we had four courses and the food was inventive and delicious!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- worst waiter in ManhattanBetterCheaperSlowerDined on 9/6/2014The waiter was not merely inattentive but curt and dismissive to the point of rudeness. So bad he managed to defeat the point of a very, very good kitchen, great wine list and a terrific sommelier.Special Features:
- I wish we had liked it moreRobAndJeanneVIPDined on 9/5/2014Having been to the restaurant's previous incarnations (Corton and Montrachet) we were really expecting to be wowed. Oddly, the sterile decor that was a negative at Corton remains but without the amazing cuisine. Don't get me wrong. The food is good and there are no complaints about the flavors, presentation or creativity. But there isn't much soul. Prices are fair for the quality and cocktails are inventive. But we had 4 separate wait staff asking if we were ready to order, if we wanted something else to drink or if we wanted dessert. It seems none had spoken to the other. My duck was perfect (unlike previous complaints of being rubbery) and the corn/scallop soup was excellent. The bill was incorrect so be sure to check the addition. - RobSpecial Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/4/2014Our party of 5 had an outstanding time. The food was wonderful. We look forward to returning.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- NicknameVIPDined on 9/4/2014Batard's space was most recently occupied by Corton, a luxury restaurant. Today, the interior doesn't look terribly different, but the linen tablecloths are gone, and prices are slightly lower, though not by much. In fact, service seemed a bit rushed, apparently because at the lower price, Batard needs to turn over its tables more quickly. As for the food, my wife and I thought our appetizers were good, and everything else was exceptional. The delectable entrees and desserts will likely get us to return -- but we'll expect to be finished with dinner in less than than an hour.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GLORIOUS FOODClaireVIPDined on 9/4/2014We went with our sharing restaurant friends. We taste as much as we can and everything was beyond words. The halibut was the least interesting. The duck and veal were extraordinary. The pork belly a bit less so and the halibut more ordinary. The appetizers were each fantastic and the milk bread pudding indescribably delicious. My husband, a major chocolate lover, literally swooned over the chocolate sable cake. Fabulous. The service people dear and Drew Nieporant a welcome return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Worst dining experience for 2014ellenostVIPDined on 9/3/2014Food (other than the duck breast which is hard to cut) is okay. Noise level is very high even at early dinner hours. Customer service from management is very poor. Will not return.
- Wonderful food and atmospheredspieVIPDined on 9/2/2014Service excellent as well. I highly recommend this restaurantSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- lives up to the hypeveryniceDined on 8/29/2014As good as advertised. A few drinks makes it as expensive as any other fine dining, but it's a wonderful experience. Everything is fantastic but we thought the octopus pastrami was balnd and salty, and the tortellini was nothing special. But everything else we had was fantastic. Book it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent new restaurantBrunchLover123VIPDined on 8/29/2014The food is innovative and delicious. The room is lovely although a bit noisy. The wine list is strong but needs some cheaper offerings.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary celebrationDebbieVIPDined on 8/28/2014Prix fix menus were reasonable and had good varieties. My husband & I loved the interestingly Octopus Pastrami and both the Bluefin Tuna and Veal Tenderloin melt in our mouths. Staff was attentive and friendly. Had a wonderful evening of anniversary celebration & a special table in the house.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Special Mealwmw322VIPDined on 8/27/20141st time and we'll be back. Every review I've read, and as of late, there he been many, says it like it is, TOP OF THE LINE! We were greeted by Drew himself, who worked his restaurant like a man on a mission. We were seated immediately. The restaurant is bright & unpretentious, an easy fit for this Tribeca location. The food is off the chart fabulous. Tuna, halibut, schnitzel, salad, wine(s). Each a superb preparation. Service is happy & attentive. The price for this near perfect experience is not for the budget minded, but definitely worth the price of admission.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PERFECT evening celebration!SusannaDined on 8/26/2014My husband and I celebrated our wedding at City Hall at Montrachet exactly 20 years before our return to its new iteration: Batard. Everything was perfect. The food:FANTASTIC- every bite delicious!The wine: extraordinary! Thoughtful and knowledgeable staff, chef, owner bent over backwards to make it a truly beautiful evening. And quite surprising: very reasonable pricing. Thank You SO VERY MUCH Batard !!!! We can't wait to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Happy Tribeca BoitethegforcenyVIPDined on 8/26/2014Was there when NYTimes 3 star was awarded. Place was bursting with happiness, pride, friendly customers wishing everyone well. Great energy. Food is stylish and delicious. Each place is what is purports to be yet surprises in its presentation and tastes.Special Features:
- Fabulous meal!FifiefofumDined on 8/23/2014I went there as part of a party of four this past Saturday night. The menu is short and sweet, and I love that they have the flexibility of letting you choose how to configure your tasting experience. The food was exceptional. Perfectly cooked, beautifully presented, and exceptionally delicious. Everyone at the table had something different, and we all loved our dishes. The service is good, if not quite perfect. It felt like we had two or three servers, not quite sure who was supposed to be our main person. One of the runners, I think the only female, was a bit brusque when delivering one of my courses. That was the only flaw in the experience. Overall fantastic, and I look forward to going back to try out other menu selections.Special Features:
- Subpar serviceLovemyfoodVIPDined on 8/22/2014We had foodie friends visiting from overseas so we decided to give Bâtard another try. This is our 2nd visit, we enjoyed our 4 courses with the exception of 'Octopus' (too salty and sour) overall, food was good. But here is the main problem... We noted slow service in our first visit... But service this time got so much worse! We waived our hands and turned our head to get attention of any staff just to get our first drink order... Nothing, no staff or waiters in sight. Finally, It took us 15 mins to get our drinks and another 15 mins to get our food order...( Our waiter has a stern and serious face..) Enough said. We hope the restaurant will find a way to train its staff and improve service quality. Until then we shall return..Special Features:
- What a wonderful restaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 8/21/2014And seeing Drew Nieporent in the dining room making sure his guests are well taken care of tells diners a lot. Oh that veal dish!Special Features:
- A Great treat.DustyDined on 8/20/2014I had been to Corton on several occasions and was eager to try Batard. I agree with others that Batard is loud, but easy enough to ignore once you get talking yourself. We had a great leisurely meal, 3 hrs, and never felt rushed. We had the 4 course option; but be aware if you want two "entrees" you have to pick one of the pastas. Not the end of the world, but not what I was expecting. I had the Yellowfin Tuna (my favorite dish of the night - the quinoa was really crunchy with a great texture), the Sockeye Salmon (lovely and fresh), the Black Olive Tortellini (nothing special), and the NY Strip (excellent). I had the cheese plate for dessert, which was fine. We enjoyed everything and I would return again when the budget allows.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- jsalVIPDined on 8/16/2014Went here for dinner. We had the yellowfin tuna, maine lobster and octopus appetizers, followed by the branzino and the strip loin, and ended with the caramelized milk bread. Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. The service was excellent and the place was nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and valuesherm13Dined on 8/16/2014There are very few restaurants in Manhattan where you can enjoy a 4 course tasting menu for under $100 and this is one of them. The food was delicious and service on par as well. The only aspect that was lacking was the bar. I ordered two different cocktails and both were bad...it had more to do with the balance of the ingredients than my personal taste as these are drinks i have had variations o themf before. I am sure they are more used to serving wine but they need to step up their bar game. Would return for the food!Special Features:
- Need to improveFooderVIPDined on 8/16/2014Food was irregular, ranging from excellent (Yellowfin Tuna) to mediocre (NY Strip Loin). Service was OK but a little bit careless (they did not describe the courses). All in all, no more than good. It is far from justifying the hype.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Its not Montrachet dudeSaxmanVIPDined on 8/16/2014The food is very, very good but the overall experience is rather blah. Waiter went AWOL most of the night. If you order wine by the glass you will be given a thrifty pour and if you order a coke they will forget about you. Check your bill. I found one of the items on the check was $1 dollar more than the price on the menu. I can afford the $1 but I expect better attention to detail from a restaurant with high aspirations and pedigree.
- Banquet food at restaurant pricesDemandingDinerVIPDined on 8/15/2014Dining room has all the warmth of a college dining hall and food is not much better. While menu certainly looks promising and seems to offer a fair share of luxury elements, the actual results lack the clarity and sharpness of flavors that one expects at this price point. Starters suggest that they have been sitting in the fridge and main courses, such as the strip steak, are totally devoid of flavor. Considering the restaurant's wine pedigree, it is instructive that the vast majority of the bridge and tunnel crowd appears to opt for the fancy cocktails instead.
- Wonderful experienceNYSommDined on 8/15/2014I enjoyed every aspect of my dining experience. Both my girlfriend and I are are food and wine professionals and Batard followed through the reputation of Montrachet and Corton. The duck is a must! We will be back.Special Features:
- BatardCldhvebeenVIPDined on 8/15/2014The atmosphere is warm and inviting. It feels right to order a good bottle of wine to pair with the tasty, elegant plates of food. Everything went without a hitch until I decided to order the "cheese from our cart". I envisioned past wonderful meals in France ending with a selection of cheeses presented from a cart. Instead, two different waiters asked if I liked, aft, hard or smelly cheeses. I thought, "Oh, they don't really have a cart". Then, while I ate my cheese, I watched another table getting the full presentation and explanation from a waitress wheeling a cart to their table. It was disappointing and felt insulting.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OutstandingDMB1958Dined on 8/14/2014Great food, outstanding service, lovely room (although the noise level is still high, even after the sound dampening work was done). Wine steward was very helpful and actually suggested a lower price wine than the one I had initially considered. Memorable and worth every dollar.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FantasticRemiVIPDined on 8/14/2014We had read good things about this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The appetizers were fabulous--lobster salad with zucchini blossoms, the heirloom salad; entres spectacular, particularly the veal. My duck was also superb. We made a reservation for our next visit when we left!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tribeca GemOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/14/2014The food was superior and the service was above excellent. John Winterman gives the place class and style. I have returned many times and NEVER to be disappoint! It only gets better. The bread is hot and delicious and the halibut is just the right flavor and seasoning. Also the portions are not to big and just right. The cocktails are a real surprise and the wine list will not disappoint.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 8/13/2014Food was outstanding as was service. Noise level however is a problem.Special Features:
- A gem!DrooskiDined on 8/9/2014Brilliant food, deep and interesting wine list, warmly professional service. Superb sommelier. To steal a phrase from old Broadway posters, "run, don't walk) to have a meal at Batard.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ExperienceslundbeckDined on 8/8/2014My girlfriend and I went to Bâtard for our anniversary and loved it; the food and drinks were excellent. Be sure to ask Candice for an 'Inglorious Bâtard' - they're fantastic.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I'll be backLoveRadishesVIPDined on 8/7/2014We sampled several dishes and enjoyed all of them, especially the off menu chicken schnitzel. Also memorable were the black olive tortellini and the caramelized milk bread dessert. Artful presentation of food, unique and tasty cocktails, and thoughtfully superb service all around. I will be back and will bring more friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
