Contemporary American
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.

Enjoy Afternoon Tea service daily from 3-5 PM, reservations required.

BG restaurant is one of my favorites in NYC. The decor is gorgeous and the Central Park views are stunning. The scallops are my favorite! Ask to be placed in Corrina's or Adam's section. They are top notch servers!

Salad delish, but realized after I ate it that there two options for dressing on the menu, but the waiter didn’t ask. It was still good, but would have rathered the other.
Food was super quick. But no one notices our empty water glasses for quite a while and we had to call someone over to refill.
Love the chocolate mint that comes with the check.

My only complaint was that there were free tables by the windows but we were told that the tables were assigned, no reserved, but pre-assigned. When I made the reservation there was no question about preference of table location. We ended up with a table for two in a line of small tables. The waiter was excellent, food great, but the smushed table location prevented us from lingering. Next time I will call the restaurant directly to get the location I want.

We had booked afternoon tea ahead of leaving the UK for a holiday treat.

We weren't disappointed. Our waitress was lovely and the afternoon tea beautiful. We ate everything! Which is unusual for me.

I would definitely eat here again.

Thank you for a lovely experience.

Not sure if I would recommend. We were celebrating a 21st birthday. I told the waiter but there was no mention of it. Our food was cold. They did remove 2 entrees off the bill which was really nice. Of all the choices in NYC, I would not go back. Not worth the price.

Having lunch at the Bergdorf Goodman Restaurant was an interesting experience. The food was delicious. For the main course, the seabass was outstanding in flavor and texture; I highly recommend it. The waitstaff is efficient in their service. Unfortunately, the day I had lunch there, the dining room was crowded and extremely noisy which made it difficult to hear what my dining partner was saying. However, a redeeming factor for this luncheon experience was wandering through the boutique shops also on the 7th floor to see unique, often one of a kind art objects suitable for spectacular gifts.

The service was impeccable. Everyone was very well dressed in blazers. We unfortunately did not get the memo but weren’t treated any differently because of it. The food was all very good as well. If you want to see the stunning view of the park, you may have to hover over some people while they eat unless you’re lucky enough to get a window seat.

We attended BG for afternoon tea and it was everything I hoped it would be!! Located right next to the iconic Plaza Hotel, I felt you got the view of Central Park and the excellent tea & food service for a fraction of the price. None of the high back whisper chairs were available, but we were seated at a perfect spot next to a window with a view of Central Park. Our waitress was as sweet as can be, and theres just something about walking through BG on your way to the restaurant and then the ambiance of the restaurant that makes the whole experience feel so fancy and leisurely. I loved it and it was the perfect addition to our girls weekend in NYC. HIGHLY recommend!

While we loved everything we ate, snd the service was wonderful, the portions were so small.

The scones were delicious, but about the size of a small cupcake, the sandwiches were delicious- especially the truffle chicken salad, but we got the equivalent of one small sandwich per person, 4 teeny desserts and tea. This should have included a cup of soup - or even a menu option to purchase a cup of soup or salad. I guess it’s just the NY prices. Glad we went, but left hungry!

Waitress was overwhelming
Was dining with a friend whom I hadn’t seen in ages but waitress wouldn’t leave us alone!!! There’s a limit! I felt she was rushing us or trying to hard. Finally I said “please give us a minute” no one goes there and orders food the minute they sit down

Oh the service is wonderful. The ambience brings you back to the retro era. The food I ordered the soup oh la la. The lobster bisque! Then I ordered the lobster pasta dish, so much I could not finish! If you want to experience a bit of old New York City, and the view, the windows are small, but the service makes up for the rest...Go..

We had afternoon tea and the food was really good but the tea I chose was outstanding. I had the Jardin Bleu blend and I loved it. The wait service was friendly and helpful and the restaurant is lovely. We didn’t get seated by the windows which would have made it absolutely perfect but otherwise I have no complaints.

You have to go here for the view, and the lovely atmosphere. It is very pricey, the wine pours are small and run around $30 a glass, and the food is just ok. They do not have a great chef or anything like that. BUT, Bergdorf's is a beautiful store, and the restaurant is physically beautiful. The waiters are wonderful, and it feels as if one is floating above the city. Also, everyone in the restaurant is beautifully clad, so it makes for a lovely luxury experiences

The restaurant at BG absolutely fabulous. The view is spectacular. I started with Ahi Tartare and it was delicious very fresh and it was refreshing on a bed of crispy cucumber- perfect. Every restaurant serves Seabass but this Seabass with a light sauce was superb. BG serves a delightful Apple Tart for dessert. Everyone was so pleasant always with a smile. I can’t wait to return for the lobster salad. I hope everyone has a chance to meet my Server Isaura, who knew just when to come over to make sure everything was ok. What a wonderful way to get above the noise and traffic and enjoy the city with a light lunch.

Lovely view of Central Park for afternoon tea but tables are so cramped and it was loud. Service was top notch. Savories included 5 sandwiches- cucumber cream cheese, truffle chicken salad (too much truffle), egg salad, ham/Brie, and smoked salmon/caviar. Nice scone with cream and preserves,and finally four sweets - macaroon, mini tart, salmons cookie and petit four. $45 a moderate price, but I’ve had better tea service.
