a little too loud for lunch. I love a lively lunch but could barely discuss the business we needed to because we were shouting at each other. Otherwise, love the location, decor, food, etc.

We had lunch and ordered halibut, lobster salad and summer cod special - all very delicious. Summer strawberry ice tea was good, a tad expensive for ice tea. Otherwise pleasant atmosphere for lunch.

Always an incredible dining experience. I have been dining here since the restaurant launched and never have I ever been disappointed. It is my first choice for our ladies lunch or special occasions.
Food is superior and the service always excellent.

One of the best restaurants in NYC
It might seem odd that a restaurant in a department store has some of the best food in NYC. But this isn't just any department store and this isn't just any restaurant. I have dined at many (any I mean MANY) restaurants in the city, from all the hot spots to the refined five star dining establishments, to the local mom and pop joints. And let me just say that BG is definitely among the best. The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable. True, the place closes at 8pm so you'll have to go for lunch or an early dinner but wow is it worth it!

Legendary View, Wonderful Service
I was in NYC for a conference, and I only had a very few hours free during my trip. I booked lunch at Bergdorf to cap off my short visit, soak in the wonderful view of Central Park, and enjoy the lovely service. I was delighted when I got a seat right by the window, so that I could see the beautiful sunny Saturday at this gorgeous location. Always a pleasure.

Afternoon Tea at Bergdorfs!
I would recommend afternoon tea here! It has a bubbly atmosphere, some seats overlook the Plaza at 5th Avenue, which is really nice, although the seats on the other side are still pleasant. The selection of sandwiches are very nice but the scones are divine, made with wholewheat flour and scrumptious, so much nicer than the traditional white flour ones. I would like to go back and try lunch there as some of the dishes passing us by as we had tea, looked so good. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive without being annoying and was enthusiastic about recommending some of the teas, trying to get us to try something different that we may not have had before. I like that in a waiter.

Lunchtime Elegance NY Style
BG restaurant is where to go to lunch in NYC as you were meant to. Dine on sumptuous fare that never disappoints served by a friendly, polished staff while gazing at Central Park amongst New York's most stylish urbanites.

Five Stars and a Full Moon...smile
An exquisite spot for old world dining with contemporary conviviality and accomodation. From the maitre de to the client service staff... there is a palpable air of pride and professionalism these individuals take in their work.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service great, however....
Food is fresh and taste heavenly. The service was attentive and the wait staff was knowledgeable. The only downside is the outdated decor and the noise level (because the ables are so close). I would highly recommend this restaurant, because of the food alone.

Great Food, Great People Watching
It's a bit pricey, but a a beautiful venue with wonderful food and even better people watching. Brunch, lunch and afternoon tea are great! Definitely one of my favorite spots for weekend girls' brunch.

A wonderful experience
The food was incredible: pumpkin ginger soup - perfect. I am a vegetarian and as an entree I had the cauliflower dish - filling and super healthy. The flour less desert and coffee was delicious. My only complaint was the service from our waitress- she often came off as rude and impatient and treated one of my guests with contempt. Our waitress literally rolled her eyes and raised her voice at my guest when she asked the waitress to repeat the name of a wine she was recommending. Our waitress seemed to be in a rush and perhaps she was having a bad day because she always seemed exasperated when we asked her a question. The service is the only thing that kept me from giving this review 5 stars.

I love this place. The view up 5th avenue is priceless, the service great and always a good time.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a very nice meal and not expected for a place in a Dept store, It would be a fine meal anywhere
9/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
The flavors and colors were vibrant and fabulous! Come hungry because you should eat every course. The lobster macaroni and cheese was rich and delicious. The beet salad and burrata salads were melt in your mouth delicious. And the cookies, BG dessert, and apricot special were worth every calorie.

Amazing Luncheon Experience
I took visiting relatives to BG for lunch. The staff was outstanding and they gave us a terrific table with a prime view of Central Park. The food, the service, the decor - all fantastic. My relatives declared their afternoon at BG as the highlight of their trip. They also recommended watching the documentary, "Bury My Ashes at Bergdorfs," for those who may be unfamiliar with the store's history.

Afternoon Tea with a View
We treated ourelves to afternoon tea at BG as being in New York was part of our Honeymoon. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the formality of the venue made us feel really special! The views from the restaurant were fantastic. The afternoon tea started with a glass of Veuve Cliquot (our favourite champagne) and was swiftly followed by a selection of beautiful sandwiches, scones and petit fours capped off with a pot of Earl Grey tea which we were impressed with as tea is not an American institution! It was a little pricey but as a treat I would highly recommend a visit and we shall return if we go back to NYC in the future.

Place for tea time
The location and decor are outstanding. My loberst salad are very good , but my sister was not happy her seafood salad because it was too plain . It is very good place for tea time .

I came across this wonderful restaurant during a shopping trip with a friend a couple of weeks ago. Never did it cross my mind that I would find such a gem of a restaurant in a department store! The moment I stepped through the door, I fell in love with the interior, brightness of the room and wonderful views. I treated a good friend, whose wedding I sadly missed, to dinner the other day. The amazing staff helped me to make an everlasting memory. We were offered a beautiful table of my choice and received a glass of pink Champagne in honor of her wedding, compliments of the house, which made us both feel very special. The food was beautifully presented and delightful. I am looking forward to going back for an 'encore' in the quadrant !

ladies who lunch
Order the Gotham Salad and a glass of Babich Black Label Sauvignon Blanc and you can't go wrong. Ensure you request a window table when making your reservation to have Central Park views. You can't get a better mid shopping lunch anywhere! Beautiful orchids and Chanel tweed everywhere.

On the 7th floor of Bergdorf''s provides an ambiance that is special in every sense of the word. The restaurant is set amidst treasures: marvelous things for home and hearth, a department for babies and children that changes with the fashion seasons, gifts fit for special friends and royalty. The menu has delicious choices for eating and for drinking. Greetings at the entrance and service are perfect. Can't wait to go back again and again...a gem.

Room With a View
This lovely restaurant is perfect for tourists, shoppers and ladies who lunch. Great people watching (we did see an A list celebrity). Beautiful people in the latest fashions. The view is amazing and the food is excellent.
There was a private party in the back room and it seems like a great spot to celebrate any occasion.

BG- The Ultimate SERVICE experience
Bergdorf Goodman is known for style, sophistication, and setting the bar in NYC for customer service. BG restaurant is the crowning achievement perched atop the iconic 5th ave landmark. We live on the UES and we eat out everyday and we tend to stick to the same places we love, be them in our neighborhood, mid-town, west side, SoHo-- whatever, the point is that I don't post a review of most restaurants but-- Go to BG, sit among the simple elegance which Kelly has designed, eat some of the best and wonderfully satisfying food, and prepare to experience the best customer service in the a City. Michael, Julie, and their team are the ultimate in NYC, in my opinion. If you have an issue, tell the staff and whatever it is, they will resolve it!

Elegant dining room with sweeping views of Central Park. Their salads are marvelous!

Amazing gem in a busy city
Awesome food, spectacular service, and a magnificent view of New York. Try the lobster Napolean!

I am never disappointed when I dine at BG Restaurant. The food is delicious, atmosphere perfection and service is outstanding. It is all in the details and that is what makes BG Restaurant so wonderful. It is at the top of my list whether I am planning a girlfriends lunch, a birthday celebration or an intimate dinner! Love it!

Lunch with Friends
A perfect spot for lunch and shopping with girlfriends. The food was good. The service was solid. Prices fairly reasonable by NYC standards. Would return.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
While visiting NYC, my daughter and I enjoyed our lunch here thoroughly. Not cheap - mimosas were $11, entrees were $25+. My only quibble - I ordered my filet medium rare, it arrived in decidedly "medium" condition. I didn't have a chance to complain, but it was still delicious. But the service was excellent, the view was fabulous, and this is NYC, so nothing's cheap anyway.

Lobster Napoleon to die for
Having spent two weeks in NYC for holiday (from Australia) we were glad to have found BG's early. The food is great, the staff are friendly, and the view is awesome over the park. The lobster napoleon was our favourite. I would recommend to any foodie looking for a nice place to lunch.

A Splendid Gem
What a wonderful restaurant in New York's historic Bergdorf's
A delight from start to finish with an exceptional staff and ambience
A charming venue for lunch overlooking Central Park from seven stories

Always willing to go above
Very accomodating, and the staff at BG are always willing to go above and beyond! Brought my mother here for her Birthday and it was just a lovely dining experience.
people watching is great too

Good food, scenic view
I had tea service with my boyfriend and we requested a table by the window so we could see the beautiful view of Central Park. My boyfriend did not get enough food (go figure) but he liked what he ate. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food, the view, the people watching and the interiors (Kelly Wearstler) are beautiful.

A Very Enjoyable Lunch
A pleasant Sunday lunch. The decor is chic and the service is attentive. I enjoyed the deviled eggs and the Asian beef salad. The croque madame was wonderful. I definitely recommend BG for lunch.

I had a great lunch at BG
I had a great lunch at BG on Saturday...everything was perfect....a pleasure being greeted by Victor...
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was impeccable. We'd read about the "whispering chairs" and were given an opportunity to wait for a pair to become available so that we could enjoy that experience. The service was prompt and the food delicious. I enjoyed the best tea I've ever tasted; Yellow Lemon. Thanks to our servers help, I've already ordered some tea for my home.
The noise and energy levels were higher then I anticipated. It did not, however, take away from our experience. We left pleasantly sated and with "to go" orders of the "Lobster Mac and Cheese" to enjoy later.
I definitely will return when back in the area.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and amazing view.
The food was really great and the view is amazing.

A quiet oasis
I had afternoon tea with my husband and requested a table by the window when I reserved at Open table.com.
Sure enough, the table was waiting for us. Service was good and friendly. Tea was good but the selection of mini sandwiches and deserts was not up to snuf. Some of it was good but others just so so. The scones were very dry. I was expecting better quality food.
It is a good place to stop and rest in the crazy pace of NY city.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved the food, Gotham salad has all the reasons to be a classic! And we were lucky enough to get a window seat. Views over Central Park are truly a NYC classic. On the downside, noise level was too high and space between window tables is quite small, making it very difficult to get to your seat
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Came here for the first time on Saturday. The whole department store was buzzing as the windows were revealed this week.
All the staff and customers were all in good spirits.
I was hoping to come for the afternoon tea but it doesn't start till 3-5pm. Booked the table for 2pm.
I had a rather delious fish dish and a chocolate pudding and were both flavor some!
Quality staff, immaculate restaurant, buzzing atmosphere.
Don't just turn up, try booking before hand.
Dress code smart/ casual. You will look out of place in a hoodie. Make an effort! You are in a very luxury department store after all.
Can't wait to get back there for afternoon tea now!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice way to end an afternoon of shopping on 5th Ave with tea in the Cafe!
