The food was amazing and waitstaff helpful, attentive and just so lovely to deal with. However the noise level was awful making it very hard to carry on a conversation. I heard what people at tables next to me were loudly saying. No one could be heard in an average voice so not sure I’d rush back.

Great food and wine collection. Though it was bit noisy and hard to talk. Maybe because of the holiday season but still bit too loud vs our expectation.

As in past visits, a near perfect dining experience. Great food, beautifully prepared and presented by knowledgeable, friendly and efficient staff members. A true fine dining emporium with a refined, but comfortable ambiance. It is a true pleasure to be able to dine here.

Excellent food. Cocktails less so. Bar service was very slow. Dinner service was good. Ambiance leaves something to be desired.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The roasted foie gras stands out as the best preparation I’ve had to date. All of the dishes were balanced by flavor and presentation. Service was impeccable. Genuine, knowledgeable wait staff, attentive without hovering.

Food was delicious as always, but I felt the pace of the meal was too rushed.
I would have liked more time in between courses.

All of our dishes at Batard were well constructed, well prepared, and used good quality ingredients. The aged duck was excellent and the pork schnitzel was decadent. The appetizers and the pastas varied, the famous octopus pastrami was not on the menu, and the replacement octopus dish was not as exceptional. The scallops were prepared with a rich French sauce, whose name I once new, but have now forgotten, because I haven't seen it in many years, and for good reason. The pastas were good, but more focused on the fillings rather than the pasta itself. The service was very good, about on a par within this category of restaurant, but it felt kinder. The cocktails were really good, as was the glass of burgundy. What tipped me definitively into the 5 star rating was the souffle for 2 with pear compote, possibly the best souffle that I've had in NY. Definitively better than the pear souffle that I had the week before at the new incarnation of the Gotham Bar and Grill, in fact Batard was better across the board.

We liked the flexible course selections and the comprehensive wine list (both by the bottle and glass). The waiter was polite and knowledgeable. If there's anything that could be improved will be the timing between dishes.

The food was marvelous. The staff was perfectly fine for the venue. But the volume of this place makes it a hard pass. I'll never return and never recommend it for a nice date night. The entire dining room echos and even sitting at the smallest tables requires yelling to other members of the same table just to be heard. There are so many great places in New York... Pick another one.

We went to Batard on a Monday evening. While the restaurant is a small to medium size room, the tables are separated by a comfortable distance. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly, personable but not intrusive. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, and, as expected, delicious. We went on a Monday evening because the corkage fee is waived, so we were able to bring along a very nice Bordeaux (St Emilion) that would have been beyond the price we are usually willing to spend. We recommend this place without any hesitation.

Tasty dinner on our first night of seven in NYC. Austrian born Chef Markus Glocker beautifully balances tastes and textures in every dish. While the tables are a little close and the room is noisy, the ambience is fine- kind of like a friendly well appointed neighborhood restaurant that serves out of this world food. The food is spectacular. We started with cauliflower soup and bay scallops, followed by a fantastic fig based foie gras covered in crispy duck skin and served with crushed pistachios and tagliatelle which is roasted lamb served with pasta. It was also terrific. One of our main courses was Maine lobster served with brussels sprouts. The other was one of Chefs specialties, Berkshire pork schnitzel with fingerling potato salad and cucumber. It was beyond good and a must have! Dessert was a fig torte with quark ice cream and a trio of sorbets. Everything was prepared to perfection and presented beautifully. Service was timely and efficient. Big thumbs up for this one star Michelin treasure.

The food was excellent and beautifully presented. I gave 3 stars on value because I thought the $12 surcharge for the lobster was ridiculous given the extremely small portion.

Second visit and again, a wonderful dining experience. Very nice interior space and a nice, comfortable atmosphere. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Unlike some other fine dining establishments, Batard maintains a calm, unhurried atmosphere where the emphasis is, correctly, focused on the food and the dining experience. Food that is very well prepared and very well presented. The duck and the pork schnitzel main courses were excellent.

Three young women were congested in the entrance to take our coats. Abundance at this point created confusion rather than a warm welcome.
Once seated our table was comfortable and the soft music pleasant. Then came the waiter... not so pleasant. He was as charming as a desperate realtor in need of a sale. Unable to conjure the meals in words, he abruptly offered the barest description of the meal’s basic ingredients.
And then their was the food itself. My wife’s schnitzel had the charm of a late night diner’s that had been kept warming under lights since noon. At best other offerings were tolerable. Having dined out for days running, this was unquestionably the low point.
