Great overall experience.

Batard does everything well—the space is inviting and elegant, the food is interesting and well prepared such that it satisfies even the most discriminating foodie and the service is consistently good. Great overall value for money. Nice selection of wines by the glass-loved the Gevrey-Chambertin. It is my new go to place when I need a “nice” restaurant to entertain clients and friends.

Recommended by a friend as a great place for a special occasion. Among NYC foodie places Batard is a standout. The quality and presentation of the meal did not waiver or flag at any point during the courses. The souffle dessert was phenomenal; light airy, with a wonderful syrupy apple base. The waitstaff was fabulous. There to help or assist when needed but not intrusive in the slightest. Vegetarian, pescatarian and carnivore all found ample dinner choices and were delighted with their meals.

Don't be fooled by the comments about the limited ambience, this place is sleek, with just the right amount of decor not to distract from the main attraction - the food. I have been living in NY for over 10 years, been all over the restaurant scene, and I was expecting good, but got exceptional. My wife and I did the 3 course menu, but we stared with the burrata to share, then moved to the pumpkin pasta and beet salad, then the snapper and duck, then finished with the peaches. The only thing not out of this world was the peaches, and we didn't even complain, and they brought us the chocolate tart just for fun (our 5th course). The wine list is heavenly, the largest Burgundy selection I have ever seen. But, the wines are expensive, and they only offer about 4 whites and 4 reds by the glass. I guess if I had to offer any criticism, I would say the wines by the glass list should be expanded. We all can't afford $150+ bottles on top of a $300+ bill. Anyway, great service and highly recommend. This place has not lost any steps in the last few years.

Remarkable food. Everything was stunning - especially the little touches that sometimes were almost better than the main item on the plate - like pickled walnut slices! Amazing. Plus topped the whole thing off with an Apple souffle - it you have the option to order a souffle - don't miss out!!

A quite, little place with an excellent wine menu (primarily from the burgundy region). We had the 4 course meal and it was exquisite. My favorite was the beef tartare which the New York Matinee referred to it
as “a playful but mysterious little dish”.

2018 09 11: Anne and I ate here: Anne had the yellowfin tuna crudo and the duck breast, and I had the “foie gras & rabbit terrine” (which was very good, but there was no foie gras attached, only the rabbit pate, which I pointed out clearly to the waiter, who said he’d tell the manager) and the halibut. All the dishes were very good. For dessert we had the blueberry compote, which was good, not great, and I had the chocolate tart, which was delicious. Anne had two glasses of the Val De Mer, a sparkling rose, and I had a glass of the Le Vieux Donjon, chateauneuf du pape, 2014; and the Domaine Joblot, Givry Premier Cru ‘en veau’ 2014, both of which were superb

I'm baffled as to how they have a Michelin star. The food was mediocre. The service was mediocre. They can't even bother with tablecloths on the table. I've been to better French bistros. It's not even really a French restaurant because none of the courses could be classified as French. I would call it American cuisine with its wide mix of food. The price tag however was on the level with better restaurants. I appreciate that they don't really want to enforce a dress code and no one likes strict dress codes that are rigorously enforced. However, when one is paying this type of money, one would prefer not to see men dressed in casual shorts.

Arguably one of the top restaurants in the city. While high, the prices actually are reasonable given the quality of food and preparation. Everything tasted as though it had been hand picked and labored over all day. The presentation was superb. Each course arrived at once in almost military precision. The wine preparation and presentation were perfect. Only nit is the absence of bottles under $100 on the French focused wine list. We will be back.

This our second time at Batard. We had such a wonderful experience on our first visit we put it on our rotation . This time however, the service was not up to par... long wait for our cocktails, no one asked if we would like coffee , a general lack of attention. The food was excellent and we will go back, just hope for a better all around experience.

The food was exquisite. It is a more unusual Michelin type of restaurant as they do not have a menu degustation. However, what is nice is that some starters can be served as mains and the other way around. The execution of the dishes was very good and the price was decent!

Maybe it's because I went during Restaurant Week, but the service was garbage and the food wasn't particularly good either. We ordered 3 courses with wine pairings and we received no wine with the first course, then two glasses of wine next to each other with the second course. They were out of the two dishes we were excited to try and I never really knew who our waiter was ... we had a combination of 4 people buzzing around our table asking the same questions. The food was decent, but not Michelin star worthy. Desert was fantastic and presentation of food was great... but that's about it.

Overall, the service was very poor and the meal lasted 3 hours, which left me with a bad impression. Our drinks, which we ordered at the bar well before being seated, did not arrive till long after we sat down and inquired about them. While ordering, we asked the waiter to highlight the gluten-free options but he seemed unsure of himself, so we gave him a chance to confirm with the kitchen to which he declined. We then asked for some more time to review the menu, but unfortunately the waiter never came back, so we had to flag down somebody else. After finishing our drinks, we ordered a bottle of wine. We had finished over half of that by the time our first course arrived (and we were not chugging it by any means).

The food was tasty, but some of the arrangements are arguably over priced. The bread seemed a little stale. The salad option was well prepared and had a good flavor, but came out to be $20 for what amounted to some grilled vegetables, tzatziki, and a tempura cheese. The drinks were also around ~$18 which, I suppose, is average for a higher end place, but were not very creative or unique. The octopus and duck, however, were both very good and well worth ordering. I'd stick with the two course option vs the three, therefore.

We found Bâtard to be very disappointing from the decor to the lackluster cuisine .
We wanted to try the restaurant for restaurant week. I had the burrata served as a kind
of bruschetta that I needed a steak knife to cut through the bread. The Trout was tasteless, and the crème
de pot was unremarkable. One of my friends had all vegetarian options... Cauliflower/mushroom, fennel pollen pasta and a cheese course. He loved his meal. The other person in our party had the salmon rilettes, and the chicken sausage, and sorbet selection, and was equally unimpressed. The star of the evening was a very nice bottle of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Thing we would like to see (or not to see) at a Michelin star restaurant:
- A more welcoming greeting by maître d′ at the entrance;
- A more professional attire for some of the wait staff;
- Table linens;
- Definitely less salt on all dishes
