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.

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.

You have to like the fact that you hear French being spoken in a French restaurant. Staff are friendly and highly professional. Le Baratin has a genuinely French bistro vibe and the food is pure, unpretentious but excellent quality French comfort food. The Boeuf Bourguignon, coq au vin, salade de chevre and magret de canard are all done exquisitely well. A great neighborhood gem.

The meal was spot on again, and the service was great. Very attentive to any needs and the tip is to get there early if you can. Does get packed! If you are the carb eater, order the pizza and an order of escargot. The garlic sauce in which the escargot is cooked in, will pair perfectly on the pizza to provide a stimulating taste in your mouth. The croque appetizer is delicious as well! Everything on the menu is delicious, you can't go wrong!

I made a reservation on Open Table and they put us in the corner table. Near the end of the meal, while we were enjoying dessert, the waiter asked us to move to another table to accommodate another person. We were offered free glasses of champagne for our trouble, then were asked to leave soon as there were more guests that would need that table. I get that it was New Years Eve, but why is their overbooking our problem? We're not slow eaters, either! I have recommended this restaurant to others looking to get together with friends from out of town, or have a nice meal with a friend. I'm really disappointed that we were chased out of there after spending so much money. The food is good, but it wasn't worth the stress of feeling unwelcome. I'd probably come here with a friend and sit at the bar and order the baked brie, but my last visit was so discouraging I'd rather visit a less obnoxious place.

Very good French food, warm welcome, good service, good value. The food was much better than a dinner we had that same week at Benoit. Highly recommended: magret de canard (beautifully seasoned and presented) and bœuf bourguignon. Our group of 4 was at first hesitant because of the lively bar scene upfront, near our table. While the noise level was more than we had expected on a week night, as long term Villagers, we enjoyed the neighborhood ambience that is missing in most area restaurants. Go for the good food and the cozy warmth on a cold winter night. You will have a fine meal without the pretension of small plates, toasted coriander, and meat cooked the way chef likes it.

We ate very early and the restaurant very cozy and quiet for the first 3/4 of our meal. The place gets a very active bar crowd so the last 1/4 of our meal it was a bit loud. The very was very good. My Mahi Mahi special was excellent and the our other two diners had the salmon which was good. The salads were excellent as was the bread. Looking forward to returning to try the other salads and entries.
