Sophistication on the Seventh Floor of Bergdorf Goodman with afternoon into evening Central Park views. BG is a modern interpretation of the aristocratic social salon. Like a Park Avenue residence from the age of cosmopolitan glamour. Well-appointed and bright, the drawing room atmosphere is an intimate conversational setting for lunch, tea and early supper or cocktails. The light and sparkling menu is a modern take on classic New York fare.

    Excellent service. Appreciate that the staff went out of their way to help us celebrate a special occasion. The tea sandwiches were especially good (surprisingly so, as the sandwiches can often be the weakest part), as well as the scones and jam. Would return in the future!

    Father’s Day celebration. Food was just ok. The salad was so chopped and was more like a salad mush w no interesting flavors. The dumplings were raw. We enjoyed the cauliflower. Desserts were super sweet. I wouldn’t go back.

    Our experience was fantastic! My only two areas where I would suggest changes would be to 1) have black linens/napkins available for guest wearing black upon request 2) offer the option of enhancements to afternoon tea that include seconds of a particular course, like scones. We absolutely loved the scones and would have definitely asked for doubles! Also, our server Isaura was amazing. Funny, hospitable, patient, and very attentive. We will definitely ask for her next time we pop in for afternoon tea!

    I’ve dined at BG many many times and many of those times I’ve ordered the chicken salad sandwich. However yesterday when I ordered it, it looked and felt like cat food. It was so awful my sister and I returned it. Server was amazing about sending it back. She told us the sandwich was changed about a month ago. Still traumatized by the look and texture of it.

    Overall the experience was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone looking to do something upscale but not overly so for their special occasion. The food is good, but there is certainly room for improvement, the bread is maybe a little stale on the tea sandwiches, but overall it’s very good. They also do VERY well accommodating for allergies and are diligent about asking and making no hassle accommodations. This was fun and I would do it again any day!

    I read many good reviews about this restaurant, so maybe my expectation was high. But in the end of the afternoon tea, I was disappointed about so much, and most of the reason was our waitress and food was just OK. We enjoyed the atmosphere that’s all. Hope everyone else have a good time at this restaurant.

    The ambiance was nice! I think the food was okay too. They changed a couple items on the menu. The service was disappointing usually is. I prefer more attentive service. I found my self having to bro is with the server to provide me with what he is already there to do. Overall not a bad spot at all just needs improvement in staff selection. The staff needs to read the audience and adapt accordingly. Also, they need to expand their champagne menu and introduce more brute nature/zero dosage options for those who like to taste their champagne and are connoisseur’s.

    I have lunched here on numerous occasions. Today I checked in with hostesses at our confirmed reservation time and told them that my daughter was in the ladies’ room (which is right down the hall from the restaurant). They told me to step aside and made me wait to be seated until she returned from the ladies room. I would really appreciated being seated and being able to have a glass of water (I had a shopping bag with me) but instead was made to stand on the side. Then once my daughter appeared the hostess sat us at one table then decided she sat us at the wrong table &amp; asked us to get up &amp; move to another table. The food, as always, was outstanding &amp; our server was lovely but the front desk needs to do better.

    I’ve been to BG for afternoon tea on numerous occasions while visiting NYC. The service is always tremendous! However, I believe the quality of the food is slipping. Additionally, there should be additional alternatives for individuals with food sensitivities. My companion has a few food sensitivities that include chocolate and citrus. This was addressed with the server, but did not translate to the offerings on the tray.
