Bâtard Reviews List

Bâtard

Drew Nieporent’s long commitment to Tribeca continues in the space that housed the legendary Montrachet and Corton. Chef/partner Markus Glocker’s modern European menu reflects his Austrian heritage and diverse experiences (Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Trotter). Dishes like Octopus “Pastrami,” Roasted Beets Linzer and Veal Tenderloin “Tramezzini” are inventive and delicious. Diners may order two ($55), three ($69) or four courses ($79) - fixed prices that represent excellent value.

Managing partner John Winterman, former longtime maître d’ at Daniel, welcomes you to a relaxed setting warmed by golden light and cozy banquettes. The wine list highlights the best of Burgundy; cocktails are expertly crafted.

"While I have found that there are plenty of restaurants in NYC that have both delicious appetizers and entrees, El Batard really hit a home run compared to all of these!
We did one three course and one four course tasting menus which included the octopus pastrami (a must-have), the beet salad (good, but not crazy flavorful), the fennel tagliatelle (great smell, wish the taste has been as intense as the smell), the agnolotti (absolutely fabulous), the short rib (insanely delicious, my favorite dish of the night), the duck breast (also incredible), and the sweet potato cremeux (different yet delicious).
I would definitely recommend dining here for dinner for a date night or special occasion. Staff was also wonderful in that they were friendly but not overwhelmingly attentive."

"Service was a bit haphazard although once engaged our server was very good. My cod was undercooked and I left some as result. None of our food was of the high quality that I had expected, just a little off the baseline. Pricing for 3 courses is very reasonable, on a par with Odeon down the street but the atmosphere is neither buzzy Tribeca nor quietly romantic as the room does not lend itself to the latter. A bit of an oddball."

"The restaurant took note of our special request and seated us at an intimate and cosy table. What followed was a delectable meal - it's great to be able to choose the number of courses, depending on how ambitious one is feeling on any given evening. The service was attentive and friendly (not too stiff and starchy, which was nice) and the vibe was a relaxed one of people enjoying each other's company and their meals....They took care to make a milestone birthday celebration feel very special."

"On what is now our fifth visit to Batard we have decided it is definitely in our top 5 in NYC restaurants. Service is amazing and the food is fantastic. From apps to dessert our meals were flawless. Being Gluton free, it is important for me to eat somewhere that cares. The staff at Batard is fully understanding and discusses the ingredients for every dish with you to make sure they comply with your requests.
Not cheap, but worth every penny."

"It was our first trip to NYC, with our main goal of eating unforgettable food. We decided to splurge for at least one meal, which ended up being at Batard. It was perfect. We were treated wonderfully, not like tourists, but as locals. I was worried it would be too "snobby", but that couldn't be further from the truth. The drinks = amazing. The memorable highlights from our meal were the risotto & creme brulee. It really was the perfect date night for my husband and I. We weren't overfed, but extremely satisfied when we left. If we lived in the city, it would without a doubt be our Anniversary spot."

"Great food and service. The octopus pastrami was amazing and the duck was really good. One note is the tasting menu lets you double up from any section except for entree, so you can get two from the first section or pasta if you want."

"On frequent trips to the city we invariably book a table at Batard and it virtually always is the highlight of our trip. Food is unparalleled and service is kind. Management is present and actively works to insure the experience is all one could hope for."

"Truly elegant service and ambiance. Even compared with other Michelin-starred restaurants, the food was outstanding. Quiet, polished atmosphere. Somehow perfect for a romantic date OR a business dinner where "closing is everything". Everything an overworked Manhattanite needs after a hectic week or a long day."

"We were all disappointed by one dish or another on the prix fixe menu. My dorado was so salty, I could not finish it. Also, so loud that you had to shout across the table: decor is beautiful and understated but no soft material to buffer the noise. But the service was very attentive."

"I have always been very honest in my reviews, while always feeling a bit hesitant as I write; BUT after Pete Wells' review of Per Se, I once again find it imperative to express honestly, and coherently my experience. I was LOOKING FORWARD to dinner at Batard with friends from DC; and that is my motivation for being truthful: I was LOOKING FORWARD, and they disappointed; Michelin warned about lackluster service, which I will say we found efficient , but not friendly ; help with the wine selection was very quick and pleasant;the food....the Durade was WAY too salty, tasting it in fact; meat dishes likewise, but more satisfactory; the noise level is difficult for conversation around a table;we also felt slightly rushed; sometimes, it's just the whole experience that disappoints and that should make anyone a bit cranky!"
