My friend and I decided to get together for a late lunch/tea after not seeing each other over a year because of covid. From the moment we were greeted by the maitre d Rocio everyone was so accommodating and kind. Grace was also super sweet to us. Our waiter (his name starts with F) was so knowledgeable about the menu and was an overall absolute vibe! The food was impeccable and the tea was so fresh! I cannot wait to bring my mom and a couple other friends who enjoy a good ambiance!

We loved everything about BG restaurant! I have dine there before pandemic many times but never posted a review. It has always been a great place with delicious food, great wine and friendly service! Compliments to the chef, manager and all involved in keeping BG one of the best restaurants on 5 ave!

My mom and I were commentating/celebrating our first Mother/daughter trip to NYC with Afternoon Tea. They sat us by the window and had a great view of Central Park. They treated us like royalty and everything was exceptional - the service, the food, the tea and the ambiance. I highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

The mini sandwiches although good, didn't seem like they were prepared fresh because the bread was a little crusty already.

I have been to BG often times over the years and have always come away with the highest regard for the restaurant....unfortunately not this time ...while their service is still outstanding my meal was mediocre at best...I had a salad that was seemingly thrown together with a lack of dressing and wasn't particularly tasteful....they've replaced their wonderful bread basket with one piece of dry focaccia....perhaps they have to work out recovering from these horrible times...but they need to do better

The high tea was delicious, too many sweets and not enough savory items. The service was okay. A little bit unfriendly and chaotic considering the price point. The view was great. Signage at BG is poor to find the restaurant

This place is simply only worth the name. The food was good enough and service was mediocre. Beautiful place but I would definitely recommend other places to eat in NYC.

Loved the high tea experience! The restaurant is so beautiful and you can easily hear your table guests- not a loud restaurant! Other food there has been great too. And love the outdoor seating area as well! Will come back again and again!

Excellent lobster pot pie and BG special dessert! Sadly the chicken salad had sand in the lettuce and was mostly inedible. Would have been nice if management had offered some comp on bill or via a dessert etc. Also frustrated by excessive and unnecessary delays in receiving various items. But server Shuba was a terrific professional. Also was frustrating that no GF bread was available.

The food was okay. Small portions and not necessarily seasoned well . Felt rushed the entire time. The waiter was hovering like we had been there 7 hours. They didn’t have my table ready when I got there and I had to wait 20-30 minutes, which was annoying but eh. Also, we went for brunch but there wasn’t any brunch specific foods on the menu. Definitely not worth the money. And the ambience was a little lacklustre, honestly. The cups looked old. Definitely go if you’re trying to flex on Instagram. Don’t go if you actually want to have a good, filling meal.

There was a loud table of girls near us that made it hard to hear our own conversation. Our server was excellent though! He was attentive and had made great recommendations. I had hoped the Asian chicken salad was still on the menu.

We had to wait for our previously reserved table for over 5 minutes as it was not ready yet. A broken chair had to be switched out. The service was slow and inattentive and pastries were missing the tops. Did not offer many options to the vegan member of our party, was given a cold piece of bread. Waited 40+ minutes for our tea and food to be brought out. Disappointed in the quality of food and service as Bergdorf is expected to deliver a certain caliber of hospitality.

A party of 4 adults ,celebrating an 8 yr reunion I am always a customer when in nyc. So I chose the BG Cafe for the food & service also its more residential . Each time its eye candy for the soul with the displays & merchandise . Later in our time a group of grads 10 seated became very loud too difficult to hear our family.

We went their to celebrate our anniversary. All of us had the afternoon tea service. The service was incredibly slow. It took 45 minutes after we ordered to get our tea and our tiered tray of food.

All that would not matter if the food was good. But the bread was Stale. The egg salad was bland. And the pastries were so so.

The scone was good. But that’s all I can say.

Gorgeous spot. I feel like I need to go back and try again. I wanted to love it.
