Always the best. Never disappoints! I’ve been to a ton of fine dining restaurants and Batard never disappoints. The best part is that you could choose to have a smaller portion of a main size dish as your appetizer, and your 3rd course doesn’t always have to be dessert! Whether it’s for work, or family or a romantic date, the atmosphere is just perfect! If they serve it, their steak is the best in Manhattan- better than Capital grille, Wolfgang, Strip House, Keens, Peter Lugars, you name it! Austrian wine lovers, non alcoholic drinks, Batard will not disappoint!!!

Reliably excellent food. Service is seamless. The room is beautiful. The lighting is flattering and perfect. On Monday evenings there is no corkage fee so it's a wonderful value as well.

Service was great as usual - we did get seated right by the cheese table which is stationary - could you maybe put it on wheels so that it’s not always near the same tables? Love a delis ious smelly cheese but they smell pretty strong when the table cover is taken off :)

Batard is a jewel that lets ingedients, great food & wine, attentive service shine. However, the noise level, despite generous table spacing, made conversation difficult. I dont think my companion will return.

The appetizers and main courses were all hits — we had the beef tartare, citrus-cured hamachi, lobster tagliatelle, duck, and pithivier of quail + foie gras. The desserts were not as stellar; the soufflé in particular was eggy and overrated. But overall, the dinner was sophisticated and very well-prepared! We’d definitely go back.
The ambiance was quiet and intimate (Thursday night). It’s perfect for dates, special occasions, or people sensitive to noise.

Even my foodie friend from San Francisco said that the meal was unparalleled. Food was fabulous, exquisitely plated and delicious. Lobster Tagliatelle was to die for. BYOB Monday was a real treat. Service was impeccable. Seemed to predict our every want and provided it before we knew that we wanted it. No better place to go in NYC.

Starters were amazing (lobster tagliatelle) but was less enthralled with red snapper main, which could have done with a little more seasoning. Wines all on the pricey side for what they were. Service was correct. Very noisy and bustling atmosphere.

Our reservation was early (Saturday @ 5:30), so it was relaxed and quiet. They had a card on the table (when we were seated) that acknowledged me friend’s birthday—quite nice. Service was great—sometimes a bit over attentive (interrupting). Everything was very good, but nothing stood out as outstanding. We were quite happy with everything. I would recommend and definitely return.

We had asked for a quiet corner table when we made our reservation—and that's just what we got, which made my guest extremely happy. The food and service were excellent. I had the
CITRUS-CURED HAMACHI and, for my entree, the RED SNAPPER w baby brussels sprouts and turnips.
My guest had the DAY-BOAT SCALLOPS w quinoa and cauliflower and, for her entree, the
BRANZINO w smoked eggplant, kalamata olives, and fingerlings. All were excellent, although the large cracker served with the hamachi didn't do much for it, and the jasmine rice listed as an ingredient in the RED SNAPPER entree was undetectable. No matter—they were delicious. We were also very happy with the glasses of wine we ordered. My pinot noir was especially good: Maison Roche de Bellene Bourgogne Rouge Vieilles Vignes 2016.

I had walked past Batard on several occasions and decided to try it out. I had no issue in making a reservation.
When I arrived there, I was quickly seated and checked out items on the menu and wine list.
When I ordered, there was a seemingly long period of time for the food to be served at the table. The restaurant was not overly crowded, so I do not know why it took some time to serve the various courses.

The food was superior in taste and presentation. The actual table service was first rate,

The epitome of my food experiences in NYC ! We enjoyed very well executed classic dishes with a modern twist: the foie gras had orange sauce, the duck some hazelnuts and the dessert were very sophisticate dand not too sweet. A very good price for value except for the wines on the very high price level, an elegant dining room though they should do something on the ceiling to cut the noise down. Service was full of attention but you can still feel some hurry in the kitchen, I recommand the staff relax a little and take more pleasure in adressing the guests.
It was a memorable meal and quite affordable.

Very refined and gracious Michelin-starred cuisine. A truly magnificent wine list (with prices to match) emphasizing Burgundy. Many cellar treasures available for those with deep wine pockets. Sommelier Erik Westman is a pleasure to interact with.

While I recommend friends to check out Batard, I do so with the caveat that I dined when they were clearly having an off night. I had high expectations. The food would have been better but feel it had been sitting out for a few minutes too long. Both first and main courses were lukewarm when they arrived at the table. Also, the service fell short. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a stressed/rushed hostess. The timing of our service was uneven (quick with water, slow with wine, some courses brought out quickly, some with a longer gap) and our waiter not as knowledgeable about the menu or wine selection as I would expect, nor was he as attentive to follow up. However, I think the thing that put me off the most was the bathroom. It was gross. I'll leave it at that. I want to give Batard the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to just a bad night, as I can't believe it would have gained such a positive reputation under the conditions I experienced.

Batard was able to accommodate a last minute guest without making it hard. The service was amazing and encouraging in all the right ways -- to get the right dishes, to drink to our hearts' content. The food was OUTSTANDING -- from the ingredients to the techniques to the depth of flavor earned from each ingredient on the plate, my expectations were exceeded. Servings were not huge but large enough to share so we could all taste a bit of everything. Though since we shared I feel quite deprived of having a WHOLE serving of the Lobster Tagliatelle and the Duck entree to myself - so I guess I'll have to come back soon.
