Wonderful in so many ways....

I've eaten at Bayard's a few times, and have always been impressed by the quality and presentation of the food, the just-the-right-amount of attentiveness of the waitstaff, and the general ambience. The space itself is beautiful. So I recently chose it as the site for a private party, and let me just say....WOW. The food was fantastic as always. Everyone from the manager down to the waitstaff passing hors d'oeuvres were unfailingly professional, friendly, and helpful beyond the call of duty. I would recommend Bayard's not only to anyone looking for a high-end dining experience, but also to anyone looking for a place to host a party. I can't say enough good things about it!

Best restaurant on the East Coast

Bayards is unquestionably the best restaurant in New York at this time. Fresh ingredients, wonderful combinations of tastes, fantastic atmosphere, great wine list, reasonably priced when compared with other top restaurants. Eberhardt Muhler is a true artist who doesn't hide behind complex sauces and overpowering seasoning. Every dish is a true masterpiece.

Not Happy

I can only say that our Bayard's experience was nothing like the review posted on 12/14. All I have to say is that the service & food are highly overated and not worth the price. There are much better restaurants in this price range in NYC.

A mansion in New York

It may be a little tricky to find Bayard's, but once you step inside, magic happens. You enter a fabulous mansion filled with antiques, Asian and maritime art. Each floor is worth exploring. We started with a lavender martini at the plush Blue Bar. Then up to the gorgeous dining room, where the fire was roaring. We were in bliss. Then came the food, each dish more succculent than the next. The duck foie gras and oxtail terrine takes you right to Heaven, and the celery root soup was so sophisticated. The braised veal shank was outstanding, and so was the roasted codfish. The chef, Eberhard Muller, owns an organic farm with his wife. No wonder the vegetables were so delicious. Keep room for dessert, because they are all winners. The wine list is huge, and the service was impeccable. Everyone should go to Bayard's, it is an unforgettable experience.

Not worth it.

We went to Bayard's last night for the prixe fix dinner. You'd think they would try and dazzle patrons so we'd be inspired to come back for the full menu. Not so. We had to ask for our bread, the soup was luke warm, we had to ask for a wine menu twice and the salmon was cold and tasteless.
When asked why our martinis were watery, we were told they were having a problem with their ice.
We were told when we called the dress code was no sneakers and no jeans, well the people behind us were in sneakers, jeans and t-shirts.
Also, we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation.
The prixe fix menu was a deal to boost downtown restaurants, atleast we didn't pay the full price.

This restaurant is an experience everyone should enjoy. From the wait staff to the food to the ambiance, it was a true fine dining experience. Dont wait for a special occasion, just go.

Expensive, but worth it. Their Tuna Tartar is flawless. Dover Sole was impeccable. Mashed potatoes and fries were even great. Cool nautical museum setting too. Highly recommend it.
