Afternoon Tea
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 2:30-5:30 PM, reservations required.

Uncooked fish (sea bass) had to be returned. Husband practically finished his meal by time new one came and it too was not fully cooked through. My fish meal was comped but the point is it was an anniversary celebration for us, which they knew about (had been informed). My husband’s Gotham salad looked and tasted awful. If I’d got it at a fast food restaurant I’d still be disappointed. I don’t know why it’s meant to be a signature dish. Pathetic. The waiter had a habit of asking us how things were right as we placed something in our mouth and waited while we gulped it down in order to answer. That’s pretty clumsy, inept, and shows a lack of training and empathy. Still, I think he was mortified at the fish debacle. He brought us two glasses of champagne without asking if we would even like that. Well guess what - we do not drink. Would have been nicer to ask is what we might like, rather than assume alcohol appeases everyone. Whole experience was a clumsy shambles. And we have frequented them many times before with all good experiences. Must be going downhill for so many things to be wrong. Won’t be returning. And folks, don’t waste your money on the Gotham salad - go to choot instead. It will taste better and look better for 1/2 the price. Ambiance only goes so far. A picture of the Gotham salad attached. Just a chopped up, unappetising mess in my opinion.

First trip to BG. They were accommodating, sat us early and allowed us a window seat. Scott was an AMAZING server and added to the Begdorf experience. Drinks were tasty, food was great. The host did the best to his ability, unfortunately the host stand was crowded and a complete kurfufal! The green chairs with The BG insignia were dingy. Overall, good experience.

The salad was a sort of summer salad but was not very good. However, the entrees, the salmon and the
barised short ribs were excellent. The service was very attentive!

It was very busy which is to be expected during the Holidays. We had a reservation for 2 for Afternoon Tea. Did not mind that we had to wait, but diners with no reservation were seated ahead of us. The tables were so close together that we had to stand up and move our table twice during our tea to let others in and out next to us. Bread on our sandwiches was very dry.

We had the afternoon tea.... I guess my expectations are high since I have had afternoon tea in London. They were crazy packed. We had to wait 20mins to be seated despite reservations. No one offered to take our coats despite other patrons were asked right beside us.There were total of 5 in my party. We each purchased the high tea at 49.00 a piece. However the portion we received was like for a party of 2. Tea in London is plentiful for reference. One sandwich a piece for each kind : cucumber, egg, cold cut, salmon, and truffle chicken sandwich. There were some sweets: macaroon, sugar cookies shaped like a leaf and Turkey- mind u its December so these cookies were essentially left overs from the Thanksgiving, lemon tart, coffee chocolate cake, and scones. Again one sweet per person was brought on the server. The sweets weren't that memorable. Highlight I can say was the tea choices...we each flavored a different tea. Versailles and Rooibos are winners fyi. The waiter was cordial but not overly helpful. Hindsight I know why ... just keep reading the review.Would I do it again? Hmmm probably no because it was RIP off for 300.00. Yes 300.00 because you have an automatic gratuity fee for parties of 5 and more. We were 5. The view of central park was ok...imagine maybe in the spring it would be better. Really just trees could be seen from our spot. So if you do go... reconsider if you are thinking afternoon tea was something to mark off your to do list there. Try another dish on the menu instead of gaining an expensive lack luster experience.

Never would have expected at BG....a drunk man got into argument with another couple. He was wrong and finally left. I feel sorry for the couple. This interaction was very uncomfortable for everyone around. I think security should have removed him immediately. Ruined our lunch....I do not fault BG for the incident but the man should have been escorted out immediately....reaction time was too slow.

Yes, I would recommend the BG afternoon tea at Christmas to a friend. Despite the crowd and the noise, it was an elegant setting. Our waiter, Scott, was outstanding. Seeing the beautiful department store and its windows was a real treat for our group of Texas ladies. We found all of the staff at Bergdorf Goodman to be friendly and accommodating.

I love BG don’t get me wrong. When my mother and I arrived we thought we would wait only 5-10 minutes at most for our reservation but it ended up being 30 and half. I’m pregnant and wanted to sit down but there’s not much seating. Plus it was so crowd that day there was nowhere to walk around. It just seems that because people were not leaving their tables it delayed everything. If that’s the case then please, in the future, management needs to not have reservations be over booked for the amount of tables actually available.

We went for BGs afternoon high tea. The service was excellent and the ambience is very nice. Depending on your table you may also have a view.

Would prefer more flexibility in the selection - ex an option for vegetarians or for just ordering sweets rather than sandwiches. My favorite part of high tea is the scones and there were only 2 (one for each of us).

Tea selection was narrow but wonderful! I found my new favorite tea - Nuit a Versailles - and can’t seem to find it many places online so I’ll have to go back!

Overall, going to be a great experience at a much lower price point than the Plaza or the Palace.
