A lovely experience and perfect for our anniversary.
The service was perfect, friendly (but not overly) and very accommodating.
We preferred the smaller plates to the mains but everything was well-prepared.
The beef tartare was the best I’ve ever tasted and we usually order it whenever it appears on a menu. It was deceptively simple in its presentation but exceptional in its taste.

Had the Duck - it was amazing and different. My guests had the grilled Octopus and I nibbled off their plate... yum. Go for the dessert menu - berries w home made ice cream was truly creative! How Douglas you do that?! Service was attentive! Bread was good. Creative cocktail list! Very nice.

We enjoyed the food. The wine list was impressive in particular with regard to French wines. We opted for a Californian wine as we are Europe-based. The wine was extremely disappointing. It was by far the worst wine I have been offered in a starred restaurant anywhere across four continents with Michelin-starred restaurants we have been to.

The food was excellent but we had a long wait for our first course. However, we were compensated with an extra appetizer and round of drinks. They were very apologetic and gracious about the delay and we appreciated their efforts.
We have gone to batted for several years and will continue to do so.!

Although the menu was not as seasonal as we might have liked, the food was delicious. Our server, Kevin R., was helpful and most knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. He recommended an excellent bottle of white. The sommelier was also quite knowledgeable he advised us on a tasty bottle of red. We had a very good meal - looking forward to a return visit!

Food was excellent, had to send my meal back because it was over cooked. However, they prepared it again and it was perfect . The waiter was pretty bad at his job. We had to make corrections on our bill and he was rather curt and not apologetic about it . He also did not explain one of the courses would be double the supplement pice as listed in the menu . We loved the food but would not be back due to the service . SOooo Unfortunate 😢

We got sat down and then it was about 8 minutes until someone gave us menus. Finally had to give our drink request to a server since our waiter never came back. When he did come back, he was less than enthused about explaining the various dishes. We went with three courses and all were lovely and delicious though the wait in between was long. A beautiful restaurant with great food overall. However the wait staff and sommelier, not so great. You basically need to know what you want to eat and drink without much guidance.

Amazing food and wine! We went on a couples trip to NYC this weekend and had a fabulous meal at Batard. My husband and I are vegetarians and they had no trouble accommodating us. The wine selection was wonderful too, and there really was great value for such an upscale restaurant. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice meal in Tribeca.

Dined at Batard for a joint birthday/anniversary celebration. So great that you can basically build your own tasting menu which also allows for a range of budgets to visit. I love that this restaurant changes parts of their menu almost daily to align with what is fresh and available seasonally! Food was great and the staff was fantastic. We were even treated to a quick kitchen tour. We will be back!

There are so many great restos in NYC, but I wanted to revisit Batard. I have always loved this space: Montrachet, Corton, and Batard. The wine list was a draw. I say this, and at the same time I have to confess that I brought in 2002 Dominus. Reason was my guest wanted to try it, and I had it in my cellar. To me their list is all about the burgundies, though they have something of everything. Somm Eric helped me. He imparted a lot of knowledge, which I always love absorbing. Started with 375ml Krug. I had the cold foie gras and pork terrine - loved it. My guests could not indulge in much wine because they had to return to work. So moved into Dominus immediately. I intended to start with a red burg. I enjoyed the lobster, another had the duck, and the third has the schnitzel (not on menu but available in homage to the chef's Austrian roots). All delicious and each held up to the wine, which it would have been easy not to. Had the cheese course. My favorite was Van Trapp Oma raw cow's milk cheese from VT. My dessert was a glass of 2001 Guiraud sauternes, great vintage, and again delicious. Thank you Batard.

Order a quiet table for 5 to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday, on the phone they confirmed that it was not a problem. When we arrived, we were placed in a small table in the middle of the restaurant surrounded by the traffic from the waiters. It was extremely loud. Food was good, but with a very slow service. Not sure if I’ll come back, this is the 3rd time a similar situation happens.

The food at Batard was very good French cuisine. They have a free corkage fee on Monday’s to attract customers, I presume. I brought a 1998 Beaucastel rouge CDP. They didn’t ask if we wanted it decanted and fully poured the last bit into my glass when I wasn’t paying attention. I left that bit with all the sediment. The waiter was friendly but the attention to details was lacking. I would take away their star.

Excellent, imaginative food. in a spare but comfortable room. Somewhat misleading menu with three levels of fixed price dinners, but many with supplemental charges. Ridiculously expensive wine list. Wine by the glass here means a very short pour. The waitress was overly attentive, because she was constantly trying to upgrade the cost of our dinners.

My husband and I had popped into Batard for a pre-dinner drink 2 years ago on another visit to NYC from DC. We loved the look of the space and the bar folk were so kind and engaging that when planning a trip around our 6th anniversary we knew where we wanted to dine. Batard exceeded our dreams with an affordable, inventive menu that delivered 4 completely different dishes, each perfectly executed. It was great to have a fabulous meal and remember what we ate! The wine list is comprehensive and the service spot-on. Thank you, Batard, for an anniversary we'll always remember!

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary with a trip to NYC - we had come from the wild, wooly hinterlands of Texas and were in the process of being slayed with everything Manhattan. Batard fit right into our agenda (and expectations), as everything was chic, tingly and delicious. But not super surprising because it was recommended by my fabulous foodie author friend, Hannah Howard. My appetizer was sublime - beef tartare with crunchy, savory pistachios. My husband chose the carrots, which he adored. For our main courses, I reveled in the halibut with warm oranges as a garnish (who would have thought of this? Geniuses, I tell you!), while Laurence got the duck. Both were excellent. OH, I must mention the bread. Um, we had to ask for seconds of their little puffy rolls. Don't know the name, but OMG, as the teens say. For our finale, dessert, my husband selected his beloved sorbet and I chose the flourless coconut cake, also featuring a dollop of sorbet. I had to have a coffee, a cappuccino, so that topped off the entire event perfectly. The thing that was so wonderful was that the cuisine was nuanced with subtle flavors that later exploded on our palates. We kind of didn't see it coming. And what a treat. In sum, the presentation was more than just irresistible, satisfying and all-things-superb, it was edible art. I would come back to Batard in a heartbeat. Next up: working on a way to teleport ourselves from Dallas to Tribeca for dinner.
