This is a sure-handed restaurant that covers all the bases exceedingly well. The lobster tagliatelle and souffle for two were exceptionally good - can't wait to go back.

I had walked past Batard on several occasions and decided to try it out. I had no issue in making a reservation.
When I arrived there, I was quickly seated and checked out items on the menu and wine list.
When I ordered, there was a seemingly long period of time for the food to be served at the table. The restaurant was not overly crowded, so I do not know why it took some time to serve the various courses.

The food was superior in taste and presentation. The actual table service was first rate,

The epitome of my food experiences in NYC ! We enjoyed very well executed classic dishes with a modern twist: the foie gras had orange sauce, the duck some hazelnuts and the dessert were very sophisticate dand not too sweet. A very good price for value except for the wines on the very high price level, an elegant dining room though they should do something on the ceiling to cut the noise down. Service was full of attention but you can still feel some hurry in the kitchen, I recommand the staff relax a little and take more pleasure in adressing the guests.
It was a memorable meal and quite affordable.

Very refined and gracious Michelin-starred cuisine. A truly magnificent wine list (with prices to match) emphasizing Burgundy. Many cellar treasures available for those with deep wine pockets. Sommelier Erik Westman is a pleasure to interact with.

While I recommend friends to check out Batard, I do so with the caveat that I dined when they were clearly having an off night. I had high expectations. The food would have been better but feel it had been sitting out for a few minutes too long. Both first and main courses were lukewarm when they arrived at the table. Also, the service fell short. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a stressed/rushed hostess. The timing of our service was uneven (quick with water, slow with wine, some courses brought out quickly, some with a longer gap) and our waiter not as knowledgeable about the menu or wine selection as I would expect, nor was he as attentive to follow up. However, I think the thing that put me off the most was the bathroom. It was gross. I'll leave it at that. I want to give Batard the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to just a bad night, as I can't believe it would have gained such a positive reputation under the conditions I experienced.

Batard was able to accommodate a last minute guest without making it hard. The service was amazing and encouraging in all the right ways -- to get the right dishes, to drink to our hearts' content. The food was OUTSTANDING -- from the ingredients to the techniques to the depth of flavor earned from each ingredient on the plate, my expectations were exceeded. Servings were not huge but large enough to share so we could all taste a bit of everything. Though since we shared I feel quite deprived of having a WHOLE serving of the Lobster Tagliatelle and the Duck entree to myself - so I guess I'll have to come back soon.

Unbelievable meal and service. Loved everything we had, standouts being the carrot soup, scallops, duck and Amish chicken. By standards of NYC a great value.

Minor critiques:
Ox tail agnolotti - the nuts on the dish seemed a little out of place and superfluous

Carrot soup - the sweetbreads didn’t really soak up the soup and melt in your mouth, so a little disjointed from the dish in our humble opinion but still amazing

Soufflé (Apple) - the only dish of the night that was underwhelming for us. Would have rather had 2 additional apps or small plates! Or tried a couple of the others.

Overall: Amazing place in terms of food, ambience and service - worthy of all the praise! Can’t wait to go back.

Wonderful evening start to finish. The sommelier was so helpful, the service casual, and unobtrusive while also being on point. That is a hard balance. The food was uniformly excellent, though we agreed the 1st course was best (we got 2 things and shared for each of the 4 courses) with a lovely citrus cured hamachi and a perfect beef tartare -- the sourdough with the tartare was transcendent. Everything else was great, but those dishes shone. Very pleased.

We went here for Valentine's Day and the pre-set menu was perfect. They gave you an option of 3 or 4 course menu and allowed you to pick and choose what you wanted. You can either do 1 appetizer and 2 mains, all mains or the typical 1 appetizer, 1 main and 1 dessert. The food was wonderful and perfectly portioned. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves food.

Batard is my most surprising new discovery of February.

Had to find a restaurant to dine in tonight but don't want to return to the Asian places that I've been to like 100 times, referred to the Michelin guide, and bang, here we got Batard.

Hamachi was done right and refined enough to be of my likings. Flavor is a bit harsh for my likings, but can't criticize having harsh flavors since there's nothing principally wrong with the dish.

Agnolotti - Oxtail is cooked about right, very juicy and flavorful. Again a little harsh but this is more cooking style than incompetence.

Duck Breast - Too cooked to be of my likings (cooked to medium as opposed to medium rare), but I'd personally say it's a good dish nevertheless, with very bursty rye crumbles and pear flavors infused.

The entire menu, including tax and tips, turned out to be $111, which is a steal for a restaurant like this (these dishes didn't distinguish themselves that much from those from L'Atelier, which would charge around $190 including tax and tips for the identical menu).

Overall I highly recommend Batard.

Quite easily the best restaurant I’ve been to in New York. The quality is excellent and consistent, and the duck is the most perfectly cooked cut of meat I’ve ever tasted, augmented beautifully by the wine-soaked pears. Also can’t beat no corkage fees on Mondays! Keep doing what you’re doing, I will be returning regularly

Excellent flavors and good plate presentation so worth a visit for this. However, service was disappointing: a lot of waiters running around but without coordination and without attention to detail. Also not sure why some tables had white clothing and others were bare. Probably worth mentioning in the Michelin Guide but not sure why the star. If you want good food and don’t care about sloppy service, that’s the place to go. Fair prices.

First time here and we'll definitely go again. The food was outstanding from the risotto with fennel sausage to the branzino with amazing smoked eggplant. Only complaint: the tables are very close, the room is noisy and unfortunately we were seated beside a Master of the Universe who talked nearly non-stop - not much the restaurant can do about that.

The food was not up to the reputation. The black truffle pappardelle was not fresh and somewhat dry and clearly overpriced. A bottle of sparkling water was ordered but the bottle was taken away when there was still water inside it. A new bottle was served and the server wanted to open the new bottle badly even when our glasses had plenty of water left and we had to say no three times not to open the new bottle. It was pretty annoying. However the ambiance of the restaurant was great.
