Server was not the most attentive. It is good that there is other staff around to pick up the slack.
Wine was delicious, food was great.
Great experience and food was amaizing. Service was great and friendly.
Very good to excellent French/Continental food served in an elegant dining room. Specially enjoyed the Citrus-cured Hamachi and the Beef Tartare appetizers. Good, efficient, unpretentious service. Very good wine list with many good bottle options in the $ 70-130 range. Overall, good value for the quality of the food and the dining experience
Four course tasting menu was delicious, portions were a good size, artfully presented. Great wine list and expert advise make for good pairings.
Outstanding service, excellent food, extraordinary wine list. Highly recommend.
I had high expectations, but was let down on everything. The starters were uninspired, salty and poorly portioned (hamachi and zucchini blossom) the main (what should be their specialty - schnitzel) was cover cooked, breading was loose and slightly soggy (plus, the sweat and sour berry spreads for the schnitzel was creative and good, and the only saving grace for true flavor). The dessert, soufflé, was so bad my wife and I left 90% of the loaf sized one note sugar bomb (if you dig to the bottom there are ‘cherries’ there, but they don’t elevate the fish in any way). I was truly disappointed.
A special dinner and the food was delicious. The staff is lovely and patient with an annoying group(us)!
Everything we ate was outstanding. Great experience.
Excellent meal all around! Our group appreciated the opportunity to enjoy fine dining of this caliber in a lovely setting with a more relaxed dress code than other similar establishments. We were thrilled with the wine the sommelier helped us to choose based on our preferences. Every dish was beautifully executed, both in flavor combinations and presentation. Would definitely recommend.
Absolutely a fantastic dinner from start to finish including the wine. We asked if the pastry chef could make the souffle for two with peaches instead of the tart cherries and she did - superb! (wonderful pastry chef!) Service was also wonderful, particularly from Jason Jacobeit - the wine director.
Friends anniversary. Excellent food, excellent service. I would highly recommend.
It is so good. The food is perfect for both quality and quantity.
Exceptional experience. We are still talking about the presentation, taste and experience of every dish we sampled. The presentation was outstanding and the food incredible. The staff was welcoming and top self all the way.
Everything thing on the plate was perfectly seasoned & every garnish worked perfectly together to create memorable bites. Highly recommend
Excellent quality, superb presentations, and innovative cuisine. Bravo!
Seated immediately. Did not see server for 20 minutes where he handed menus and poured water. Then server disappeared. We complained to manager and he took drink order. One hour from seating had to get manager to take order. 30 minutes between courses. Server brought check. Terrible service for this class of restaurant. People around us with same complaints. No one asked for second drink. No one checked on us. Won’t be back.
I am sorry your experience fell short of expectiations and for that I will take full responsibility. However, I must take issue with your note, "people around us with the same complaints," which is patently untrue: we had nothing but gracious comments from every table seated in your vicinity. In point of fact, at the table adjacent to you have been regulare guests of ours since we opened. - john
The food was very good
I really liked the food here. The taste is even better than michelin 2 stars restaurant. I am sure I will come again.
Our dinner at Batard was lovely. We went for restaurant week, and the food, from the appetizers to main dishes and dessert, were delicious and beautifully presented. The drinks were great too! Service was terrific. Thank you!
Our evening should have been wonderful. The food was delicious and the restaurant is lovely. We both enjoyed the tasty salmon appy and the well prepared striped bass.The service was good enough but not as personally attentive as we anticipated. The downfall was the horrible noise level. It felt like we were at a dance club on a Saturday night. It was difficult to hear ourselves talk.
This was my first time to Bâtard. I went during restaurant week to see how it matched up to reviews I read. It was wonderful. It's everything I enjoy about a restaurant. A super delicious meal, friendly staff who make you feel special and a warm atmosphere. What I find disappointing in Manhattan restaurants these days are the high price tags on meals that I walk away from saying I could have done a better job making myself. Not here, worth every penny. Thank you.
We had a lovely meal, thoroughly enjoyed each course, presentation and taste was excellent. Service was attentive, we had a few different servers, did have to ask for a fork for my starter as was only given a knife.
We just tried the restaurant week menu. It is always a risk to try the restaurant week menu, but this restaurant did very good. We tried wine paring also and it was excellent. Very good idea to offer wine paring for great price, I wish other restaurant will do the same.
MY friend and I wanted to try Batard for the restaurant week as it is a Michelin star.
We were scared the food quality would not be good but cocktails were really good and original and the entree/main/dessert were at our expectations.
Wonderful food and thoughtful service! We loved it and would come back in a minute.
Went pre-theater on a Saturday in August. Had a wonderful meal and great cocktails to pair.
Delicious in every way. The best foi gras terrine I’ve ever tasted. Nice sized portions for a refined restaurant. My husband and I are big eaters and we ordered many of the dishes. They accommodated multiple additional plates to the courses- Not because the portions were small, but because everything is so delicious!
Truly a lovely meal! The staff and ambiance is welcoming and the food was spectacular. We sometimes find Michelin dining at 1-star can fall short of its reputation/standard, but here it surpassed and surprised. We visited on restaurant week and are sure to become regular diners.
We made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday.
Daughter, husband and myself.
We all ordered different menu items- all three courses.
My husband is still talking about the best lobster appetizer he ever had.
My daughter totally enjoyed the risotto main course.
My striped bass was good- I was trying to watch my calories- and saved them for the sorbet.
My daughter and I loved the wild mushroom side dish, which we shared.
Palette cleansing lemon, mango and passion fruit atop what seamed like toasted or freeze-dried strawberries and cappucino rounded up a joyful summer night celebration!
Service was superb, food was delectable. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I plan on visiting it again
Went for Restaurant Week. They had excellent menu choices. I started with the chicken and pork pate and had the sea bass for main course. Both delicious, well prepared and reasonably sized portion. They have an excellent wine list with many well-priced choices. Friendly, professional service.
Was not as impressed as 2 years ago. Food was not bad but not “Michelin” good, and service definitely downgraded. Noise level is higher than expected.
Went here for restaurant week and everything was delicious!
Had a great time at restaurant week! Really great value and the wine pairing was wonderful as well. Right under $200 for 2 people for the restaurant week deal plus wine pairing, cheese plate and a side.
Batard never disappoints
We sampled a bit of everything for restaurant week and it all exceeded our wildest expectations
How could food be this good? Perplexed
Absolutely my favorite restaurant in the entire world
We went to Batard for Restaurant Week. We enjoyed a lovely , relaxing meal with friends. The food was delicious and the wine pairings excellent. The evening exceeded all our expectations!
I had the bass and we each ordered a different side dish of vegetables for the table to share and were impressed by all the flavors.
We had a marvelous evening. Fantastic food, great service and a lovely modern interior. Who could ask for more? Cannt wait to be back!
Two of us came here during restaurant week and this was everything a restaurant week experience should be. The food was good to very good and while the front server/captain seemed very busy and scarcely had time to check back with us the team approach used ensured we had excellent service. The sommelier did a great job in recommending a bottle of wine and the staff Jeffrey really made our night. We had been wanting to try Batard but hadn't and restaurant week gave us a good reason to try. We will be back (not during restaurant week) and I've already recommended to a few friends.
Walking down the block, I nearly missed Batard, because I didn't expect it to have such a nondescript storefront. However, upon entering, I was surprised by how much larger the restaurant was than I thought, and how beautiful and cozy the interior was. This is a great restaurant for dinner -- dim lighting, large tables for group meals, and intimate tables for couples. There's a bar to the right once you walk in, and then the rest of the open area is filled with tables. For a party of four, we were seated at a comfortable, wide, circular table in the middle of the dining room. The noise level was moderate.
We started with complimentary bread and butter, and I loved how warm and soft the bread was. The butter was delicious! I definitely could have eaten more. We participated in the Summer Restaurant Week menu, and I ordered the Pork & Chicken Terrine to start, followed by the Striped Bass, and finally the Blueberry Olive Oil Cake. We also got the Restaurant Week Cheese Plate to share.
The terrine was not my favorite, as this was my first time ever trying it, and I just wasn't a fan of the texture (it was similar to meat loaf to me). However, the sauce was tasty (a bit spicy like wasabi) and I loved the peaches. The bass and cake were both delicious, and before our bill, they even gave us complimentary passionfruit tarts. I will note we waited for a while between courses (our dinner took about two hours in total), so if you are on a time crunch, keep that in mind. All in all, I enjoyed my experience here and would return.
Impeccable service. Every bite of food better than the one before. The chicken with dual preparations was sublime. The lighting was low enough to be relaxed, yet lit enough to see every creative detail.
