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.

Fresh seasonal ingredients beautifully executed. Art on a plate. Wonderful wine list and a knowledgeable helpful sommelier. The cheese selection was impressive. Definitely deserves its Michelin star.

I have no clue how they have a Michelin star except for nepotism? Everything was so mediocre. Save you money and go to Le Coucou instead.

Food was delicious and the service was timely in spite of a full house.
The hamachi appetizer and the halibut were exquisite as was the chocolate tart.
Will definitely return

It’s a nice restaurant, with well cooked food but missed the atmosphere and surprise factor from a Michelin restaurant... good for an evening out but not for a foodie night

Pretty place but we found the service ranging from rude to surly to just inattentive. The food was variable - some plates were outstanding others just so so. We will not return.

Batard is one of Tribeca's jewels and every aspect of the dining experience is exquisite! I had the red snapper, which was cooked to perfection. However, one important element was missing: art. While the restaurant is beautifully appointed, it does need good art on its walls.

We expected it to be very good but it was not just very good, it was outstanding and way above our expectations. The food was expertly prepared: home made tagliatelle with a superb lamb sauce, foie gras cooked to perfection and beautifully presented and the duck was melting in your mouth. Service was lovely, attentive, helpful. I was a bit disappointed with the dessert which was very good but not in the league of the other courses. I cannot wait to go back!

While Batard was decent, it was really just that. Service was slow and rather inattentive. Some dishes were spectacular and some were abysmal. Both my husband and I were very disappointed with their main dishes, especially since my husband’s was an up charge. We both did the four course meal and was floored by the scallops, the octopus, and the chocolate tart. So 3 dishes out of 8 blew our minds, which is not amazing considering it’s a Michelin restaurant. We went to Manhatta just last month and while it didn’t have a Michelin star, it had overwhelmingly better service and we had a great view and mostly delicious food. I’d go to Manhatta but I wouldn’t come to Batard again unless I’m really craving the scallop, which was actually there best I’ve ever had.

We both had two courses,which were very nice. Scallops were superb! Red Snapper course was good too. Price differential for dessert seemed excessive so we gave it a miss and wines were too expensive but we did find a good French Bordeaux.
No amuse Bouche or canapés served which is expected at this level of dining. Bread nothing special.
Service was too casual for us, and there were insufficient staff serving and so wine was not properly topped up.
Also the food dishes were plonked onto the table with no explanation of ingredients as we would expect. Infact the meals were not consistent as one had fennel but not the other.

I dined here solo two nights in a row while staying at the nearby Sheraton TriBeCa on business. I sat at the bar, as I prefer to do when eating alone. Be aware that while OpenTable doesn’t seem to allow you to book non-bar seating for a solo diner, they are happy to seat singles at a table if desired.

Kelly, the bartender and my primary server for both nights, was wonderful. She helped me explore the cocktail, wine, and spirit offerings of Bâtard with a solid eye toward my preferences and food choices. I really enjoyed getting to know her over the course of two evenings.

The food too was wonderful. Each night I opted for four courses l. Special standouts were the beef tartare (creamy, delicate, beautifully executed) and the composed oyster dish. The oysters may be my favorite I’ve ever had, beautifully cold and already dressed with avocado, peppers, and ginger. They were perfectly briny with the sea coming through even considering the fair amount of accouterments.

The wine list is extensive, with a focus on Burgundy (as the restaurant’s name would suggest). Lots of wonderful stuff at relatively reasonable prices, considering the location and standard markup. However, you’re relatively unlikely to find bottles much under $100.

Some interesting stuff at the bar, including very well-balanced cocktails and a wide selection of eau de vie which made for interesting pairings with dessert (a fig “torte” with quark ice cream that was not too sweet and extremely satisfying).

All in all, a great couple of evenings. I did pay a price ($700 or so in total over two nights, including a bottle of Chablis grand cru), but worth it for a welcome respite from the NYC grind.

When in New York we would never miss a chance to have dinner at Bâtard. Always a great experience. The food, the service, even the music are fantastic!
We will be back as soon as possible.

This was my third time dining at Batard. The food and service are consistently outstanding. This time I dined with a colleague, his first time at the restaurant, who thought it equivalent to a 3-star Michelin in terms of food without the hauteur and pretense of some establishments. We also received great advice from the sommelier who guided us to an delicious but affordable Volany with reasonable age that precisely complemented the fish and meat courses. A real jewel of a restaurant.

Anniversary dinner was a very wonderful experience, there was a happy anniversary card on our table. Waiter was great, we didn’t feel rushed and he did a great job explaining the food and wine selections. Over all was a very nice evening, very easy going feel.
