Really very good but not up to the best I've had from Mr. Nierpoint's restaurants. In particular, the Peking Duck was advertised as coming with brocolli rabe. The portion was microscopic and if I were the suspicious type I would have said it was brocollini instead. The characteristic bitter test that makes brocolli rabe so superior, and which would have been a superb compliment to the sauce, was absent. My waiter was really helpful with the wine, and the dessert was "magnifique".

I love this restaurant. Have been three times now and everything has been delicious. The gnocchi and the Dover sole were absolute knockouts. Service has always been attentive and knowledgeable. Excellent wine list too. Highly recommend.

We went to this restaurant for a birthday celebration because I had read all kinds of rave reviews.
I ordered the Branzino and was disappointed. Skin not crispy so unappetizing for me. Creamed spinach was very salty and the duck was just so so.
The ambiance was subdued with young professionals and the wine list was extensive. Unfortunately, the food was a miss.

We went to celebrate our daughter’s engagement. The staff was superb and extremely attentive. The food was amazingly good. My daughter had the chicken and she said that it was the best that she had in her life. It’s clearly a Michelin star location, and worth considering for a special location.

Very pleasant experience. Food is delicious but portion size could be a bit more generous. Absence of tablecloth gives informal feel that is not resonating with the room's ambiance that is more upscale/formal. Staff and service are excellent. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food and Wine list. A little bit noisy. Sommellier service was poor not at the restaurant level. He didn’t explain anything about the wine list and was nervously running from one table to the other. Spill wine on the table while pouring without noticing it.

If you asked every restaurant critic what one thing makes a restaurant outstanding, you would find yourself at Batard. From the moment we walked in, we knew this was going to be an evening to remember. Everyone we came into contact with was warm and welcoming. Our server Jed was exactly what you would expect at a Michelin restaurant. Professional, knowledgeable and engaging. We wanted to ask him to sit down and have dinner with us - he was that delightful The Somali was the best that I’ve ever worked with. Our champagne matched perfectly with the food as did our wine with the meal. His knowledge was unsurpassable.
The food was the best that I’ve ever eaten. The Gnocchi was beyond anything you could imagine and my bass had to be shared with my dinner companions, it was that delicious and presented beautifully. The creativity that went into the menu amazed me.
If you are looking to have the dining experience that far exceeds anything you could imagine, Batard is the one restaurant that does it, and does it perfectly!

The restaurant looks lovely. Hard for older ppl to get in the door as it opens out and there is no level step at the top. They let us jump ahead of our reservation. Server was very accommodating and even tried to fix the wiggly table. Small list of by the glass wines but good. Sicilian is what had.
We ordered the 3 course service and the additional cheese plate of 4 cheeses. That was supposed to be between the entree and the dessert. It came out with the dessert so we sent the dessert back to enjoy the excellent cheeses of which there was a great group of choices.
What the problem is is the noise level. We could hardly hear the server who had no mask and he in turn could not hear us. It became very annoying at hour 2 of sitting there. As we are interior designers, we know that there are solutions to that issue with more sound absorbing materials being employed in the design.
The noise level for older ppl is way too much. And maybe they don’t want us but we have $$ to spend! Rethink that approach.

Considering it’s a Michelin star restaurant I expected it to be one of the top three restaurant meals of my life and it wasn’t. Was enjoyable with nice ambiance and service but overpriced for what it is won’t go back.

Poor service and ambience during our most recent outing to this restaurant. No heaters and inadequate lighting at our outdoor table. And, the hostess was quite rude. Expect better service given price points.

On the positive side, the food remains quite good.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants for a number of years; however, we have been out of the country for an extended period so unable to make it to Batard with its new chef and new menu. After our recent meal there, two comments: "Wow!" and "when can we return?".

Everything was outstanding: the food, the presentation, the wine and the service. The outdoor seating is particularly good with well spaced tables and attentive service.

Thank you.

Not great.

Foie gras appetizer was very good: A.

Wine list is amazing and the sommelier impressed me: A

Beef dish with gloppy sauce: you're trying too hard and it's not good: D

Duck with yogurt and beets: ditto: D

Cheese tasting portions were grotesquely small.
When I had dinner at Daniel, they gave us half a disc of Epoisses. From you, we got a tablespoon full. Embarrassing for you: F

The waiter was over-the-top in a bad way: C+
