                                              I’ve been to BG for tea numerous times. It’s always on my list to reserve when coming to NYC. I was super disappointed with the food and service this time, however. The sandwiches were dry and everything just seemed to lack flavor and freshness. Our server did not come by very often and I asked for honey for my tea and it finally appeared 15 minutes later. It just wasn’t the same as it has been in recent visits in the past. I hope things come back around, but I’ll try someplace else next time.

                                              I took my mother to lunch on Mother's Day and our waitress Jessica was very rude. Very noisy. Our table was dirty-hair on the tablecloth and crumbs on the chair. Everyone was given cookies that said Mom on them in BG bags, even people who were not with their mothers. When we received our bill, we do not receive any cookies. When I asked why hadn't we received a bag with mothers day cookies, she said she didn't realize I was with my mother. And then she came back with one cookie and tossed it on the table. So rude! Especially when I was treating my mother. The food was subpar, wouldn't come back. Not worth it, not even for ambience.

                                              An absolutely magical experience! The view from our window table was fantastic, the afternoon tea was excellent, and the staff was very kind. Will definitely go again.

                                              Whoever made the menu did not mention there was almonds in our food and I am severely allergic. (Wtf?) How do you not mention there’s nuts in your dishes at a restaurant like BG? Or ask about allergies? The waiters didn’t know so either they had to ask the chef who confirmed they were almonds. No one apologized … instead they just comped our food and handled it very discreetly. Bad experience

                                              I do wish with the tea service you would have been able to try various teas instead of just one per person, also there should be sugar cubes instead of sugar packets at an afternoon tea service

                                              It was my birthday celebration with a dear friend. BG was the perfect place to celebrate. The atmosphere is wonderful and the view from our private table was gorgeous. The staff was attentive, fun and professional. The food was delicious as well as beautifully presented on elegant china. A five star event

                                              We were there on a Saturday afternoon, so it was quite crowded; however, the service was impeccable. I had asked for a window table, which we were given - the view of the Park was quite nice. I had mentioned in my email that we were celebrating my sister's birthday, and our waiter mentioned that several times and gave us a complementary drink. Despite the full room, we were not rushed and service was timely.

                                              The last couple times I’ve been here I’ve found the food mediocre relative to the prestige of the location and prices . Last time I had tea I felt the pastries were a little stale . Lunch yesterday was blah and it certainly doesn’t come cheap
