The food and particularly the wine (choose a Burgundy) were very good, as was the service. The place is a little noisy because of the acoustics.

Been here several times and all have been exceptional visits. I mainly come here for their duck which is always cooked to perfection.

The hamachi yellowfin is the perfect appetizer. Highly recommended.

Great food. Pleasant and helpful staff. It was very loud on an early Thursday evening. I do not think I would dine here on a weekend night. I’d have trouble hearing my dining companion. Also the octopus pastrami is shown on the website and on the online menu. When I arrived I was told it had not been available for months. Very disappointing. This is one of the dishes I was looking forward to ordering
However I plan to return. The food was excellent.

It isn't hyperbole to say that my dinner at Bâtard on Saturday ranks among the top five meals I've had - a listing that includes the French Laundry, Eleven Madison Park, Per Se, etc. The food was fantastic - amazingly fresh ingredients, impeccably prepared and seasoned, and exquisitely presented. The service was no less spot on - James was informative, engaging and attentive, and his crew supported him superbly. Bravo to John and Markus, whom we were fortunate to meet and speak with briefly as we left. While this was a special occasion, we won't be waiting for (or need) another to return...especially as long as you have the coal roasted carrot and goat cheese salad on the menu!

There is no better fine dining restaurant for the money in the city. The food is always spectacular, and for this level of cuisine, extremely reasonably priced. So is the Burgundy-focused wine list. The service is unfailingly gracious. Drew Niepoorent is the consummate restaurateur, and every aspect of that shows here.

Batard was the best restaurant I visited in the last year... That's how wonderful the ambiance, service, and most of all, the imaginative perfectly cooked dinner. All four of us cleaned our plates every course and left nothing behind. The concept of the 3 or 4 course price fixe ( $79 or $89 depending on how many courses) ended up being a bargain for the level of food and service we enjoyed. The location and ambiance blended perfectly with the experience, and we could easily hear our conversation. Run to Batard before they raise the price! Fabulous!

Small hideaway with fabulous food. The benches are not so comfortable and those in charge (sommelier, Maitre d') are young and a bit either snobby or inexperienced and do not make you feel welcome or at ease (perhaps because we are in our mid 50's??). Nevertheless the food is amazing and the wine list had many options, even in the relatively more reasonable price range.
Every dish that I saw go by loooked wonderful. The fois gras was to die for, one of the best.
Definitely worth a visit for the excellent meal.

Very overrated place, we did 3 course each, all 6 dishes teasted very average, we were unpleasantly surprised. Service staff were very nice people but not knowledgable. There were missing silverwear on the table, they forgot to bring bread, some empty tables didnt have chairs next to them, etc etc. If you forget the fact that this place has a Michelin star and keep your expectations low it's not bad. But it is below average if you consider it's fame.

The menu plays on the safer side. The execution is quite excellent showcasing great quality ingredients.

Service was casual but very attentive and caring to questions and needs.

It’s still a great option for special occasion with good food.

The deserts seem to play a show apart with the Bâtard soufflé (with pomegranate consome) being a definitive STAR.

First visit and the food was spectacular and food service was great. Monday is BYO no corkage. It was my daughter’s 26th so we brought some great wines including a ‘75 Mouton & ‘02 Bolly GA Rose. Although pleasant, the sommelier was a bit cold and not engaging. Too bad but the wines made up for it! We will definitely go back.

Aside from them serving our appetizers before the wine was poured, service was good, food was excellent. And their "no corkage fee Monday" is one of the best deals in town.

This restaurant is exceptional - the room is beautiful, the service is impeccable and not pretentious, the wine list is over the top and yet my modest priced selection was also excellent. The food is creative and as good as I have ever eaten. Definitely do the cheese course - they know what they are doing there also. We did not want the night to end - it was special - there was even a famous actor seated a few tables away...

upper east siders, this was our first trip to Batard. Monday is no fee corkage night so we brought a pint noir from our cellar - bad choice for us the wine was thin and did not match up to the quality of the food which was exceptional begin with octopus carpaccio - tentacles in a gel spiced to perfection. One of the most original appetizers I've ever had. Next was a pasta/meat dish very well balanced with a reasonable amount of fat to give it character and luciousness.
Main course was venison with red cabbage - on a par with my memories of Andre Soltner's signature dish
My only critique would be the spatzle I would have given it a few moments at high temp to brown
ambience is adult a bit stark certainly not opulent but very much in harmony with the overall dining experience
service was professional, friendly, and timely. our server described the choices fluently and guided us in choosing the evening's best
although it's a schlep from the UES it's well worth the subway ride there and the Uber back
next time we'll be more careful with our wine for mondays OR allow their som to choose a
lovely burgogne

2,5 hours for a 4 course meal! There was nearly 30 min between the 2nd course and the 3rd course and the 4th course. By the end, we were not even hungry anymore. I'm sure it was a kitchen mishaps but still for this price...
We got 1 course comped but it really felt after the fact. Plus we begged our servers to hurry up the service from the 2nd course on....
The food was excellent though.

Like many Manhattan eateries the prices are high. We saved money by going during restaurant week winter 2018 so it was not as expensive as it is normally. We did have to pay full price for cocktails which were delicious but small and they claimed a 4oz pour of wine for $9 (restaurant week menu) for which I wish I had a scale. Still, if you haven't been I would recommend you try it. The food was very good and the service is good.

Food was excellent. Décor about what was expected. Found the service somewhat lacking. Everyone was pleasant but we waited quite a bit after seating before we could get our first bottle of wine or any other requests we might have were addressed. For a first class restaurant with first class prices, this was somewhat disappointing.

I had received an informational email from Open Table suggesting I take advantage of restaurant week. Sounded good, clicked their link and came across Batard. Was given a choice of times available and secured the reservation at a less than desirable time of 6:00PM Saturday- however, figured that with restaurant week my options were limited. BUYER BEWARE
Once we were seated at the 2/3'rd empty restaurant we were given the regular menu and told the restaurant week menu didn't apply because it was a weekend. Having never done the "restaurant week" thing before, how was I to know? We would not have made this early reservation under these circumstances. The place never filled up more than half by the time we finished @ 8, yet no other reservations were available?
So what was supposed to be $100 for two ended up being $200+.
It felt kinda bait and switchie to us.
This may be more a criticism of Open Table then the restaurant itself.
All of this aside, the food and service were quite good. Some of the other reviewers spoke of slow service and extended time between courses - that was not the case for us. But, then again we were there at 6:00!

My husband and I visited Batard for a Winter Restaurant Week. . As we got to our table, we waited 20+ minutes for our server with menus. After we ordered our food, we waited for another 30 minutes for our drinks. We got our first course, which was spectacular. It was very tasty and the quantity was as needed. However, for our 2nd course, we waited almost 40 minutes ( and the restaurant wasn't that busy). Our server was very rude. A couple that was sitting closer to us were complaining that he didn't even bother to show them a restaurant week menu, just because they could afford a regular one. This is so unethical. Anyways, back to our table. We waited for desert for almost an hour, so when I asked how long do we still have to wait, our server gave us an attitude by saying "You're not the only one here" My husband was very frustrated by this kind of attitude. We didn't even enjoy our desert, took the check and left. I have never been in a restaurant, where I have to wait almost an hour for my food. Overall, the restaurant experience was OK. Delicious food closes eyes on everything else.

Visited during restaurant week. Delicious food. Plating looked rushed for main entree and timing was off with dessert. Waited 30 minutes for dessert (technically 45 minutes between entree and dessert). Asked 4 times to get additional bread. After the second request with waiter, received bread at end of entree. We were advised that a pastry employee had called out, but the timing was off as the neighboring table of 2 arrived after us and was served the entree after us, but the dessert well before we did. Waiter apologized and offered complimentary coffee. For a simple 3 course meal at 6pm, where we arrived 10 minutes early and everything is ordered upfront, the service / timing required a solid 2 hours.
