Considering it’s a Michelin star restaurant I expected it to be one of the top three restaurant meals of my life and it wasn’t. Was enjoyable with nice ambiance and service but overpriced for what it is won’t go back.
Poor service and ambience during our most recent outing to this restaurant. No heaters and inadequate lighting at our outdoor table. And, the hostess was quite rude. Expect better service given price points.
On the positive side, the food remains quite good.
Very good food. A little expensive. Very good service. Good ambience, not super sofisticate.
This has been one of our favorite restaurants for a number of years; however, we have been out of the country for an extended period so unable to make it to Batard with its new chef and new menu. After our recent meal there, two comments: "Wow!" and "when can we return?".
Everything was outstanding: the food, the presentation, the wine and the service. The outdoor seating is particularly good with well spaced tables and attentive service.
Thank you, see you soon.
Excellent food, great hospitality! Needed to change reservation last minute and the staff accommodated my request. Food and ambiance were outstanding.
Thank you, see you soon
Great dinner! Loved the place, the food and the service.
Thank you, see you soon.
Great restaurant with simple menu and delicious options (not a bad item on it!). Highly recommend pre fixe makes everything easier.
Thank you, see you soon.
Foie gras appetizer was very good: A.
Wine list is amazing and the sommelier impressed me: A
Beef dish with gloppy sauce: you're trying too hard and it's not good: D
Duck with yogurt and beets: ditto: D
Cheese tasting portions were grotesquely small.
When I had dinner at Daniel, they gave us half a disc of Epoisses. From you, we got a tablespoon full. Embarrassing for you: F
The waiter was over-the-top in a bad way: C+
The staff was horrible and rude. Rushing us to ordering and didn’t even ask how was the dinner. The worst thing is tonight its my birthday..
the food is not bad but the service is unreasonable bad..
We're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. You had a 6.30pm reservation for 3 guests on a busy Friday evening, the first member of your party arrived at 6.50 the second at 7.10 and the last came at 7.30. We did ask you several times if you would order dinner so we could bring it to you in a timely fashion being that the table was booked for another party at 8.45pm. I guess at that point you were determined not to enjoy your evening.
Service - Servers were helpful and pleasant.
Ambiance - All the chairs are in need of refurbishment-very worn around the edges. A thin black plastic cloth was placed over certain areas to cover the wear but it showed throughout. Place looked worn out to me.
Food - mixed. We both loved our starters. My duck entree was just blah. Chicken entree was good. Side of potatoes tasted stale, like leftovers. Gluten-free bread was awful.
I can see how the place got a Michelin star at some point but it is losing some of its shine and consistency. Compared to the one stars I have visited in London, this place did not meet my expectations.
Food was impeccable and amazing
Thank you, see you soon
My first visit to Batard. We ate outside. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive. Food was good but portions relatively small given the prix fixe price of $75.00 for 2 courses. And sides are priced separately. I thought it was more expensive than it should be.
The food it’s outstanding ! The wine list , impressive !
It worth the try !
French sized portions. So do the three courses.
Very tasty with good plating skill. Very well seasoned fish to duck and reasonable wine list.
Highly recommend it.
But service was spotty and inconsistent. Could be friendlier. I assume they are experiencing staff shortage.
We went there for a birthday and it was great! Amazing food and service and romantic vibe. Can’t wait to go back.
We had an enchanting evening dining in the outdoor area. The space is surrounded by herbs, which give such a wonderful aroma. Every dish was impeccably prepared (we enjoyed the foie gras, beef tartare, halibut and chicken) We were recommended a perfect wine accompaniment to compliment the various tastes. A perfect and special meal!
The menu is much more limited than it was prior to the pandemic. Everything we had was very good, though not quite as good as meals at Bâtard prior to the pandemic. The service was cordial and professional, but was not back the the extraordinary pre-pandemic standard of service. Great to have this wonderful restaurant open again and serving indoors.
We had a wonderful dinner.
Service was efficient and friendly without being overwhelming.
This is a wonderful and very affordable fine dine. The service is impeccable, the space beautiful, and the food is delicious. Highly recommend you put it on your NYC trip, especially for a special occassion.
Great! Terrific server
The food was incredible, honestly the best duck and gnocchi I've ever had! I think the bargain price for fine dining made the food taste even better! Our waiter was also very attentive, and his food recommendations led us to both delicious dishes. My only small criticism was that we had to wait a few minutes before any staff even noticed that we needed to be seated, like there wasn't a host/hostess waiting for new arrivals. Otherwise, from the time we sat down, everything exceeded my expectations.
Service was very good but the food was inconsistent. There were a couple good dishes but others were average and not 1-star level. Great wine list though.
Delicious food, very good environment for conversation, portion size a bit small. Service right mix of attentive while giving enough time to enjoy the meal
The food here is excellent and beautifully presented. (The creative take on beef bourguinon was terrific). However, the restaurant itself seems to be in decline. Banquettes are worn and shabby. Chandeliers are dusty and have some burned out bulbs. Tables (no tablecloths) are worn and chipped. Our waiter was pleasant and competent, but inexperienced. No amuses, no petit fours. It was a slow night, mostly empty, so maybe it made everything look worse. But overall this was not the sort of high-end dining experience one would expect at this price point
The menu is interesting. The meal was excellent. Pricing very reasonable. Service was very professional and courteous. Ambience is comfortable and pleasant.
I had wondered what was so special about a Michelin star...now I know.
Had a lovely evening at Batard. The service was amazing and everyone was very attentive. The food was exceptional, especially the beef bourguignon which was the best I’d ever had. We’ll definitely be going back again and can’t wait to try more of their delicious food.
Not a Michelin star at all.
We didn't like it at all. We do not understand what they gave the Michelin star for. Maybe after receiving it, the owners completely relaxed.
1) the toilet is dirty
2) dirty napkins and plates are not cleaned for a long time. service is poor
3) there are no tablecloths on the tables
4) the food is not tasty: foie gras consists more of butter than liver, beef is awful, cream in the dessert fatty with a sour taste like cheap eateries), the choice of cheese is bad
5) the prices are very high
Hi, just want to respond to your comments, First thank you for coming to Batard. Our Foie Gras doesn't have any butter or dairy. Our Beef Bourguignon is a modern interpretation not the traditional version. The cream on the dessert is creme fraiche which is a different flavor profile from heavy cream. Please let us know if you do decide to to return and we can help you with your choices. Thank you.
