James Beard Foundation BEST NEW RESTAURANT 2015 - Drew Nieporent’s long commitment to Tribeca continues in the space that housed the legendary Montrachet with Michelin-starred dining at Bâtard. Chef/partner Markus Glocker’s modern European menu reflects his Austrian heritage and diverse experiences (Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Trotter). Dishes like Octopus “Pastrami,” Roasted Beets Linzer and Veal Tenderloin “Tramezzini” are inventive and delicious. Diners have the flexibility to order a la carte with a 2-course minimum that represents excellent value.

Managing partner John Winterman, former longtime maître d’ at Daniel, welcomes you to a relaxed setting warmed by golden light and cozy banquettes. The wine list highlights the best of Burgundy; cocktails are expertly crafted.

This year's annual holiday dinner tradition with two dear friends was at Batard, and it did not disappoint. We each ordered a different four courses, but we shared everything. The only debate was which bites did we enjoy more than the last. Service was attentive without being oppressive. An amazing wine list, but with ample moderately priced options. Fully deserving of its one Michelin star, and by NYC standards a fair value for the quality.

We loved the food, it was an experience for me and my boyfriend. We were celebrating my 30th birthday.
The place is beautiful but loud at the time we were there we couldn’t have a conversation without raising our voice and it took them a while to bring us our drinks. We understand food takes its time but drinks don’t. Other than that we had a great meal, one of the best of our life.

Honestly very disappointing. Even though the food was outstanding, the overly loud ambiance plus the very poor service, drove us from wanting to linger. We finished our meal, asked for the check and run out as fast as we could.

Food was delicious and place was cute. However, we did the 4 course tasting menu plus cocktails and felt like we were being rushed to leave despite having a reservation. I’m fact the table next to us was served their check after they had just ordered a bottle of wine. It was a bit loud but to be expected on a Friday night.

Incredible and creative food -- an overall wonderful experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, the atmosphere was understated and pleasant. The room looks different that it did in its previous incarnation as Montrachet, but the food is even more impressive and the wine list is still amazing.

Well...I took my wife for her birthday on November 28th and it was truly disapointing. Our table was woobly, runners and server noticed it but didnt do anything. We spent about 2 and a half hours there and never knew who the manager was, nobody came to ask how our experience was going or anything, the server came to check on us twice; when he took our order and when we ordered dessert. Either the runners didn't know what the food was or they just didn't want to talk but nobody even tried to explain the dishes to us. The bathroom door doesnt close so I walked in when a man was peeing, and a girl walked in when I was using the restroom. Our mackerel was overcooked with the skin burnt and the consomme had no flavor at all. But to top it all, the best part of our meal was when they brought my wife's dessert...with the candle using the quenelle of ice cream as the base...it is ridiculous!! I was furious but again...who was I supposed to talk to? Who was the manager? I sincerely apologized to my wife for the poor and dissapointed experience I made her go through. I have been cooking professionally for over ten years and never, ever, thought I would go to a Michelin starred restaurant and live this terrible experience. Wine was good but yeah, we choose it, the server didn't even try to recomend any good wine to pair our food with. Poor, very poor

Our dishes were fantastic. I especially enjoyed the Quail which I had for my first course, beautifully prepared with perfect accompaniments. The sommelier chose a great wine that met our expectations to the T. The service was good, but I wish I could say great, and actually everyone was very nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, they seemed to fumble through most of meal, forgetting to find out the answers to our questions before coming to take the order, seemed distracted, and fumbling at the table, even toppling our wine bottle. That aside, everything came to the table in good timing, and again they were very nice, all in all lending to a nice experience. Service fine, but not what I expected for Michelin Star. Still I would recommend Batard for the food and wine, and hope this was a one off.

Biggest complaint is we had to ask for drinks multiple times. At any restaurant this is unacceptable but especially at a Michelin establishment. The rest of my complaints are more based on it being a fine dining experience: desserts were served to the wrong people at the table, wrong silverware was placed for main course, food was good, not blown away by it though, glasses were empty at points, napkins weren’t folded upon going to the restroom.

Overall it was good, but there are better restaurants in the city, especially for the price.

One of the best places we have been to in years! The food, ambiance, creativity and more. We have now dined here twice and I can see many visits in the future. The menu is structured in a way to have either 2, 3 or 4 courses; AND each person can order the number of courses they want, it is not table specific.

SUBLIME! My generous brother in law loves to go to Michelin starred restaurants, and I think this was among the very best. My quail appetizer was superb, and Le Boyfriend’s tagliatelle with lobster was outstanding. They even elevated humble chicken to an extraordinary level. I would have liked to evaluate my dessert, but it was whisked out from under my nose by Le Boyfriend ,who”doesn’t eat sweets”....unless they are on my plate. The crumbs that I managed to salvage tasted very good. Oh -and the wine recommendation was perfect.

Overall rating of Fair was due to the numerous fruit flies present at our table throughout our time at the restaurant, (upon arrival, during our meal and prior to leaving).

Upscale Tribeca French bistro earns its Michelin star. 2/3/4 course tasting menus for $59/$79/$95. Not a huge selection of dishes, but what they do, they do very well. Reasonable wine list, at least for the Saint Estephe we ordered. The only nit at our table was the saltiness of the chicken, but another sip of wine seemed to make that situation disappear.

Pleasantly surprised! I had heard great things about Bâtard but had yet to go. It's next to another very trendy french restaurant and I was a little nervous when Bâtard did not have the same buzz. That being said, from the food to the service, it was a great meal. We had the quail which is a must and an absolutely incredible bottle of wine as well. A great spot, would go back in a heartbeat.
