I was looking for a french bistro to celebrate my mom's birthday. Le Baratin caught my eye and the 7 people in our party were not disappointed. Loved, loved, loved! My new favorite. The baked camembert drizzled with honey was to die for. Even something as simple as the frisee salad was great! We will all be back!

Le Baratin is a nice French restaurant with nothing special to write home about. The fare is typically French, with the Cordon Blue done OK - but not particularly well (was burnt at spots). Nothing seemed to stand out particularly in terms of food, service or ambiance.

I forgot I was in NYC. So many french people and memorabilia felt like I was in Paris after the French Open. The food is the bistro style fare that makes French food so famous. All simple, authentic favorites will bring me back often.

Everything was going very well until the manager asked us to leave our table because there were some people waiting. This is not what I expected from a French restaurant!

A great spot for a casual dinner in the Village. Nothing too flashy, but the food was good. A reasonably limited wine list, but heh, a great place for a good time.

As usual, our meal was excellent and our server attentive. Try the boeuf bourginonne and chocolate mousse. And of course les pommes frites. The steak, though very flavorful, should have been better trimmed. But of course we’ll be back.

De très bons plats et des vins français bien choisis. Accueil chaleureux à la française. De tels plats mériteraient peut être que les Neworkais présents soient moins bruyants

Classic French dishes at this authentic bistro. French comfort food; both the coq au vin and the Boeuf Bourguignon were delicious as was the skate with capers. I lived in France for many years and would definitely return and actually have....three times.

Hanger steak was like something you would get on an airplane. Gloppy sauce. Meat was tasteless and over cooked. Pretty gross. Frites just ok. Side salad mediocre.

We, four, arrived at 6:30 and were promptly seated by our attentive waiter. We hadn't seen each other in two months, so lots of catching up to do. Our attentive waiter came over to see how we were doing, so we ordered cocktails and wine and enjoyed the bread a butter and chatted. On his second visit we were ready to order. The food was well paced and delicious. I have been here a number of times since it opened and have always not only enjoyed the food, but have always had good service and a good time. My friends (first time for them) want to come back...hope fully before the end of April. i highly recommend Le Beratin...reminds me of the the old West Village restaurants use to be in the 60s and 70s...small, intimate, cozy, mood lighting, good time.

We love the wonderful classic French food at this casual venue--something not that easy to find in Manhattan these days. Try the boeuf bourginonne---wonderful....and the soupe a l'oignon...and the mussels..etc...etc. The wine list is a bit pricey, but the place and the meal are worth the expense.

I have been going to Baratin to celebrate my birthday ever since I can remember. Their food is like from a 5* star restaurant, you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but the mussels and foie gras creme brûlée are a must. The French ambience is everything. It brings you right to France, with the modern New York feel. Lights dim around 8/9 pm and people often dance around (and on) tables. It’s a lot of fun! Definitely my favorite spot in the city! Make sure to make a reservation, depending on a weekend it can get very busy.

This is a great spot for good French food, in a fun casual atmosphere. We went on a Friday night and the crowd was a nice neighborhood mix of couples on dates and a group of friends celebrating a birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and wish we'd had time to linger longer!

Everything was perfect -- our table for 6 people was ready when we arrived, our server was attentive and friendly, the food was divine and the wine pairing delicious. We could not have had a more enjoyable experience. We loved the fun sporty decor and got a good story from a regular about this being the unofficial headquarters of the French tennis players when they come over for the US Open.
