Le Baratin is a casual French bistro located in the West Village overlooking bustling Greenwich Avenue between 6th and 7th Avenues. Working with local products and purveyors, our menus feature a selection of familiar bistro offerings. Our signature dishes include the mussels, the tartare de boeuf au couteau, and the steak frites with a homemade peppercorn sauce served with perfectly cooked hand-cut fries. Our dessert menu features a changing assortment of homemade desserts, but always includes classic favorites like crème brûlée and chocolate mousse.

This is a very cute Village type of restaurant. A solid French menu with a very good kitchen and excellent service make this a very good choice.

Absolutely would recommend. Reminds me of many wonderful bistrots in Paris, only the noise level is not as low (but this is America where people shout into their phones and thus shout at each other even when sitting across a table). Food is excellent with a most accommodating staff. This is my second time there and now it will be my go-to place, especially with out-of-town visitors.

Second time I’ve been and would not hestitate to go back. Great food, (we had steak tartare, lamb merguez sausage and chicken cordon blue plus a pitcher of bellinis), cozy decor and the service is friendly and professional. A new fav of mine!

The crowd was young and the noise level was intense. The food was good and the menu varied -fairly priced. I would return but only for an early dinner. The tables are crowded together in a an intimately sized restaurant with only moderately welcoming staff.

Reserved table online with OpenTable an hour & a half in advance, for a Saturday evening at 5:45pm on the early side. Was happy to find only a few tables taken & the bar was busy. We were promptly seated at a small corner table in the back. Our waiter greeted us quickly & announced the specials. My daughter & I ordered 2 escargot apps, which were ok. We love escargot but found them a bit too salty & chewy, however the garlic butter, bread & pesto were perfect. Next we dined on 2 onion soups which were delicious. We ordered the Steak Frites medium rare with a side order of the haricots verde - all were spectacular & perfectly prepared. While we were a bit disappointed with the escargot, everything else was wonderful. We’ll be back! Hoping a special cassoulet will be on the menu.

If you're short on time and money, just travel to Greenwich Avenue instead of the 6th
arrondisement in Paris, and you'll be able to enjoy an equal experience. The escargots were just as
they should be, the beef bourguignon perfect, coq au vin terrific , pan seared foie gras just
like the left bank. And the crème brulet should not be missed. No antiseptic glass and chrome
environment here; just a rustic brick wall, small bar, and lots of happy diners. Simple wine list
is very affordable. Service can be shakey, but who can complain?

Had been here before, but had forgotten how noisy this place is. This time I'll remember. Too bad because the food is pretty good. I can't believe that so many New Yorkers gravitate to restaurants that leave your throat feeling like you've been to an N.F.L game

We live in the neighborhood and finally got here to discover it's like eating in Paris. The menu is large despite the place being rather small. Everything was delicious. We had the tartare, onion soup, mussels and hot platter, finishing with an incredible creme brulee and chocolate mousse. Can't wait to go back. Our waiter, Gabriel, was wonderful and turned up with complimentary champagne. We'd loved him even before that. The noise level bothered us a bit, but that's true many places.

Food was great.
Service was good, however, there were times when every employee was in the kitchen. Coffee machine was broken which was a bit of a bummer for a weekend brunch, however, they were happy for us to go to the (outstanding) bakery next door to get it and bring it back to our table.
Pricing is super reasonable.
No lines to wait in.
So, if you are looking for a low key, but tasty brunch in a circa 1981 W. Village restaurant, this is a great place. They were even ok with us sitting down before our full party was present.
