Wonderful evening start to finish. The sommelier was so helpful, the service casual, and unobtrusive while also being on point. That is a hard balance. The food was uniformly excellent, though we agreed the 1st course was best (we got 2 things and shared for each of the 4 courses) with a lovely citrus cured hamachi and a perfect beef tartare -- the sourdough with the tartare was transcendent. Everything else was great, but those dishes shone. Very pleased.
The staff was so nice, the food was amazing, great experience overall.
We went here for Valentine's Day and the pre-set menu was perfect. They gave you an option of 3 or 4 course menu and allowed you to pick and choose what you wanted. You can either do 1 appetizer and 2 mains, all mains or the typical 1 appetizer, 1 main and 1 dessert. The food was wonderful and perfectly portioned. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food.
Batard is my most surprising new discovery of February.
Had to find a restaurant to dine in tonight but don't want to return to the Asian places that I've been to like 100 times, referred to the Michelin guide, and bang, here we got Batard.
Hamachi was done right and refined enough to be of my likings. Flavor is a bit harsh for my likings, but can't criticize having harsh flavors since there's nothing principally wrong with the dish.
Agnolotti - Oxtail is cooked about right, very juicy and flavorful. Again a little harsh but this is more cooking style than incompetence.
Duck Breast - Too cooked to be of my likings (cooked to medium as opposed to medium rare), but I'd personally say it's a good dish nevertheless, with very bursty rye crumbles and pear flavors infused.
The entire menu, including tax and tips, turned out to be $111, which is a steal for a restaurant like this (these dishes didn't distinguish themselves that much from those from L'Atelier, which would charge around $190 including tax and tips for the identical menu).
Overall I highly recommend Batard.
Quite easily the best restaurant I’ve been to in New York. The quality is excellent and consistent, and the duck is the most perfectly cooked cut of meat I’ve ever tasted, augmented beautifully by the wine-soaked pears. Also can’t beat no corkage fees on Mondays! Keep doing what you’re doing, I will be returning regularly
The food was outstanding! Everything from the cocktails to the desserts was superb!
Excellent food, great wine selection. Service was somewhat subpar in the beginning but got much better as the night went on. I requested corner seating for 8 when called a few weeks prior but were not accommodated. In summary, we came for exceptional food and we were not disappointed.
Excellent flavors and good plate presentation so worth a visit for this. However, service was disappointing: a lot of waiters running around but without coordination and without attention to detail. Also not sure why some tables had white clothing and others were bare. Probably worth mentioning in the Michelin Guide but not sure why the star. If you want good food and don’t care about sloppy service, that’s the place to go. Fair prices.
First time here and we'll definitely go again. The food was outstanding from the risotto with fennel sausage to the branzino with amazing smoked eggplant. Only complaint: the tables are very close, the room is noisy and unfortunately we were seated beside a Master of the Universe who talked nearly non-stop - not much the restaurant can do about that.
The food was not up to the reputation. The black truffle pappardelle was not fresh and somewhat dry and clearly overpriced. A bottle of sparkling water was ordered but the bottle was taken away when there was still water inside it. A new bottle was served and the server wanted to open the new bottle badly even when our glasses had plenty of water left and we had to say no three times not to open the new bottle. It was pretty annoying. However the ambiance of the restaurant was great.
My son and I went for Restaurant Week and the food, wine and sevice were all outstanding. Batard does Restaurant Week the way it should be done. Bravo! I will definitely be back soon to try the regular menu.
Amazing meal during restaurant week and impeccable service! Our first time and we'll definitely return.
We order the restaurant week menu, the food is great and of great value than usually. The only thing not so perfect is that we waited for the desert for more than 20 minutes :(
This was my second trip to Batard. It was another great experience. The food was great and I love the atmosphere!
Went for restaurant week. Great value, food was very good and service was also great.
Excellent food. Everything good except the bread which was not fresh or warmed. Service was good but seemed like there were too many men standing around with little todo. I got there early so maybe that’s why.
Taste is quite good and the place is nice. My first visit is during restaurant week but I may go back again for its daily dinner menu.
They forgot to put in our entree waited 2 hours until they remembered. But then it was too late we had to leave to make it to my Broadway show. Appetizer they served was good but wish we could've tried the main course. Very disappointing.
Visited Barnard this week for dinner with colleagues. It was all of our 1st time visiting and I will absolutely go back again. Wonderful customer service, everyone we interacted with was an absolute pleasure and their attention to details and their customers needs is definitely noticed and sets them apart. The cocktails and wine pairings were all excellent suggestions that complimented the meal excellently. Lastly - THE FOOD...the cheese plate, the pate, the tartare....the Amish chicken (so moist and extremely tasty). I will return, they gained 5 new repeat customers!
Went during NYC Resto Week 19’ and the 3-course menu was fantastic. Incredible value with creative recipes, and great wine pairings. The wine list was extensive and impressively diverse both in price and vintners. Nice atmosphere, and an absolutely beautiful looking kitchen.
I went to Batard during restaurant week. I have to say the dinning experience was unbelievable. Michelin star worthy without a doubt. The servers were very attentive without being overbearing. Each meal was perfectly timed. There wasn't a moment when we had to ask a server for something extra or more water or anything. The food was sensational. Each meal was perfectly portioned and had the right amount of complementing flavors. The drink specials were well done and enough for us to finish our meals. I wish I would have tried the wine pairings, but that will be for another visit. Which will definitely occur.
I made a reservation for the Monday of Restaurant Week, hoping to take advantage of Bâtard’s “No Corkage Fee” policy, but unfortunately this was not applicable during the special RW pricing. In Bâtard’s defense, they did state this on their website. My group of 4 opted to eat off the special RW menu and pay the $50 corkage for each of the 2 bottles of wine we brought with us. One of our party was gluten free and the server brought over gluten-free bread to start the meal, which was appreciated. All of us opted for the salmon tartare as our first course, which was very fresh and paired nicely with the Sancerre we brought. For our second course, 3 of us opted for the farfelle with pork ragu and our gluten-free member got the branzjno. The sauces on both were very delicious and the portion sizes were reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. The warm chocolate fondant dessert was possibly the best dessert I have ever eaten, and I am generally not the biggest fan of chocolate. Overall, the value of the RW menu , even factoring in the corkage fees, was excellent and I would love to return to Bâtard and experience the full menu.
Food was great and I could drink the brown butter sabayon in a glass.
Absolutely delicious! The service was wonderful and they were very attentive to details. Will definitely be back!
Pretty decent restaurant week deal, but not up to Michelin One Star level. The noise level was too high considering a high-end restaurant
Freshness and presentation was impressive. Service was great although it was restaurant week, we didnot feel rushed. However, i did noticed that service was great for everything on menu, for anything off menu, it was less attentive (extra bread, utensils). It's a beautiful venue, professional staff, delicious food, would come back. One suggestion, maybe expand dessert menu its lackluster.
Lives up to its Michelin reputation! The restaurant week menu did not decline its quality although it is quite common for some to do so just to accommodate the increasing volume. All three courses were well prepared and wonderful , service was attentive as well!
Enjoyed Restaurant Week’s menu. Some thoughts, loved the amazing pate, enjoyed their clever way to offer wine pairings, by the glass or half glass per course and felt welcome by the staff. Look forward to returning to sample the regular menu.
Everything and everyone was wonderful. Great wine list to pair with the delicious food
The salmon tartare and branzino was incredible and the wait staff were great with suggestions. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend for date night or special occasion.
restaurant week menu is an outstanding value for the quality.
Best food in New York City, people are very friendly. Great for date night or special occasions. Bar area isn’t very big so I would recommend to not go there without reservation.
Amazing meal! Staff was great!
Top quality food! Attention to every detail and respect of seasonal ingredients! Highly recommended.
The food was decent but not impressive for a michelin star restaurant. Our waiter forgot two of our dishes and ended up bringing out our side of mushrooms after we had already finished our entrees and brought out our cheese plate (after reminding him twice) during dessert. This was a very disappointing experience due to their poor staff and service.
We went for Restaurant Week and had a fabulous dinner! I had the salmon ceviche- great! And my partner had the Butternut squash soup- also great! We both had the Branzino- excellent! And for dessert- the 2 delicious ones!
A really wonderful meal! Good drinks too! The only possible minus was the cold bread with no butter or olive oil- but hey- nothing is perfect!
Excellent food and service- I would highly recommend a trip to this restaurant.
High end restaurant but still a great value. Wonderful food and outstanding service. I think they noticed we were foodies and they invited us to see the kitchen after our meal. We really appreciated it.
Loved the food and service. Terrific!!!!!
