    The food was great, but the service wasn’t where it is supposed to be. I have been to 1/2/3 Michelin Stars, and it’s the first time, I have been served like that. The busboys/girls were very kind and attentive, the waiter was there for the beginning and the end of the meal and even if he was nice, we wasn’t very present. The Maître d’hôtel on the other hand felt rude and unwelcoming. He was the one taking our order, and when he did he made a comment in a sarcastic way and we were left confused. Throughout dinner, we were never asked once if things were okay, however we did notice that other guests got asked. It was my girlfriend’s birthday and as we left the restaurant, we had a conversation we’re we both expressed that we felt uncomfortable and unwelcomed, as if the experience wasn’t for us.

    Originally thought Batard NYC was related to the same Batard in HK. When the server told me it wasn't related I was initially a bit let down, but the dining service, food, and drink made me quickly not care about that at all. The maitre-D sat me in the corner booth which had a nice view of the entire restaurant. The sommelier was incredibly helpful to help pick out a wine that paired nicely with our course selections, and not automatically picking the most expensive one out of the group (A+). In addition, the waiter also recommended the dishes he most liked which we chose and really enjoyed. The food was very good, timing and flow was perfect (was enjoying the company of my +1) and never felt rushed whatsoever. What made the experience great was the attentiveness and knowledge of the staff, alongside the ambiance. I'll probably be coming back in the very near future

    Another incredible dinner at Batard, the fall menu is exquisite and the service wonderful as always. My favorite is the GM Paolo who works the room making sure we all feel special. They de-bone the DoverSole table side - is the best show in town. Highly recommend.

    Went to celebrate my wife’s new job. Food and wine selections were excellent. Service was perfect but a little overdone with the non-French waiter going over the top with merci and whatnot, and a little overexcited. But great. We enjoyed all our courses although $10 extra on top of prix fixe for the bouillabaisse which was pretty small portion size seemed a little silly, and the wine by the glass was also quite expensive (23 for a cab from Bordeaux) but again was excellent. Ambience was calm and romantic although some mixed vibes with t shirts and sneakers alongside nice dates. We enjoyed ourselves and overall spend was a good value for a NYC fine dining experience.

    Throughout the years, Batard has proven to be a consistent and reliably delightful dining experience. The professional staff always deliver that elusive trifecta of cuisine, service and hospitality. The wine list, by Sommelier Robert Longo, is an outstanding collection focused on Burgundy, but representing other key areas in the wine world. I highly recommend Batard and look forward to returning as soon as possible.

    Made reservation for restaurants week, but it was not available by notice. I still decided to explore this restaurant. I was not disappointed at all. I had a marvelous dining experience there and I consider this is one of my favorite restaurants in years! I ordered beef Tartare and Pekin duck, roasted carrots! Tastes great, food setting is artistic. Good food portions much larger than I expected.The service is great and impeccable! The waiter is so friendly and professional, explained all the food and special in detail, made me feel so welcome! Environment is cozy and romantic. I definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and I will be back too

    Where should I even start with this place? I was really excited to try this place for my Birthday dinner with friends. I made a reservation thru Opentable. My friends arrived there a bit earlier before me and brought me a small surprise cake and asked the restaurant if they can accommodate. The host said no, and even had the audacity to say there will be a fee for that— excuse me, what?! That was annoying and a little off-putting but no big deal, so we moved on. When I arrived there was no smile, no hospitality from host, not even a single word of welcome. We were seated with very underwhelming service to say the least. Towards the end of our dinner I realized we were being treated differently from everyone else in the restaurant. The waiter would go to another table and explain all the food and specials in detail but for my table there was nothing, they didn’t even say the name of the food when they dropped it off. The same thing happened with dessert— no service, just a cold drop-off with no explanation. I would expect the staff to at least bring out a little candle out with dessert or at least say Happy Birthday. Instead there was nothing, we were made to feel like we were doing something wrong simply by being there. The waiter, host who is also manager were all exceedingly rude and the way they treated my party was completely uncalled for. I can’t think of any other reason for this other than the fact that we were not speaking English at the table. This is the worst restaurant I have ever been to, let alone one that is Michelin star rated. I left a 10% tip which I now regret, way too generous for the horrible treatment we received. I hope the management or owner sees this and is aware of how badly your people treat minority customers. If you’re expecting great service, please try a different restaurant, as you won’t get the amazing service here that you might ordinarily expect from a Michelin star restaurant.

    I had high expectations before I went to Batard. Still, when we tried to ask if four people could only order three restaurant week sets (since we just had late lunch and other restaurants can do this way), the waiter paused for at least four seconds. He looked at me, saying, "Your question is so misunderstood, I can't answer you." in a rude way and voice. I understand Batard is a four-dollar signs restaurant and may only accept one person- one set, but I was just asking!!! Clearly, he understood my questions, but his response made me mad. The food is not good at all, the beef tartare is not fresh compared to some other french restaurants I tried in NY, and the 'market-fish' is very salty. I don't know why this restaurant is much overrated, and they charge fixed tips at the end, I guess that's why they can treat customers the way they want. While eating, they have to clean the table after you finish each course, and the scraps of food fell on me from the cloth they were wiping, interrupting my conversation with friends several times. Overall, average food without any surprises; Plus the bad services, save ur money.

    My husband and I have been wanting to go here for a while. We recently moved from the Pacific NW where there are currently zero Michelin star restaurants. This was one suggested to us from a friend. The entire staff were accommodating and very attentive, just like you want from a restaurant. We ordered from the Restaurant week menu and were not made to feel any less than anyone ordering from the original menu. We are both larger people and they sat us in a comfortable corner though very close to another dining coupe as we had to push our table out a bit, and the Maître d' came over to ask if we were comfortable or needed to move to somewhere else. The food was exquisite. Each course was an adventure for our tastebuds. My husband and I always try each other's food, and the server was so instinctive about that because when my husband was brought out his silverware, he brought be an extra spoon to try his soup! Of course I did without hesitation, but we were discreet when trying bites. I cannot wait to go back. The dining room is cozy and so beautiful and elegant. I love smart casual in an upscale restaurant because you can dress down and feel comfortable enough to really sit back and enjoy the meal. I cannot express enough how comfortable they made us feel and how pampering the dining experience was. Thank you so much.

    BâtardResponded on August 12, 2022Thank you very much for your kind comments. It makes us so happy at Batard when our client's especially first timers really appreciate who we are. See you soon.

    We had been looking forward to eating at this restaurant, we recently moved in to the neighborhood. It took a long time for someone to take our order. After we ordered they sat the two tables on each side of us. They were waited on much quicker. Each table received there first course before we did, still no attention. We had to ask a water attendant to ask about our first course. Both tables next to us finished their first course and was cleared. Still no wait staff or management addressed our table. After 40 minutes we simply walked out. No one seemed to care. Disappointing, we live close by and would have been frequent diners. We certainly will never return and will encourage our network not to either.
