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.
All Day menu served Mon - Sat from Noon-6 PM , and Sunday from Noon -5 PM
*Enjoy Afternoon Tea service Mon-Sat from Noon:-5:00 PM and Sun from Noon-5:00 PM, reservations required.

    Frederick was so kind and attentive. The gentleman who took our coats was also quite polite and attentive. Tea was delightful, we got the table we requested, and we enjoyed the service so much. No complaints at all about the loveliness of the tea experience. I think the price could have been a bit friendlier, but we’ll only be doing this once, so YOLO! What I didn’t like was the cramped and rather chaotic waiting area and the lack of attention to the the ladies lounge. They were smelly and messy which took away from our overall experience.

    Had afternoon tea. Food was lovely but not enough of it. The waiter was excellent. The lady at the entrance was dreadful - she greeted us then picked up the phone and left us standing there. Very unprofessional.

    It has seemed to lose some of its flair. We recall a more opulent tea service from prior times. The location was busy and staff constantly moving around. They need to reduce the table count and deliver more focused environment. The St Regis/Plaza etc can provide a template

    Good experience but overpriced for what it is. Beautiful location and view. The sandwiches were ok, the scones delicious, and the sweets average. 1/2 teas was good, the other a bit too bitter. Not worth $75/person. Get there early if you do plan on going to snag a table near the windows.

    Tables were extremely squished and it didn't seem like they set aside anything for reservations. People who showed up without rez got better seats. If you've done the tra service before like I have it's gotten much MUCH more expensive for far less good. The sandwiches were stale and fewer scones. Top it all off the music and noise was horrible, not a pleasant tea. Would recommend a tea house or even a small coffee shop.

    Been there for tea several years ago. It looks quite shabby. Service was polite, but very rushed. We weren’t offered the tea menu, although it was tea time. The dishes we ordered were plunked down, no condiments or bread offered. I was hoping for the suave, relaxed escape from 5 th Ave, but really, it is now just a money machine.

    BG had been strongly recommended by trusted friends, but we were very underwhelmed. I expected better ambience--instead, it felt cramped and not as bright with views as advertised. I did enjoy the seasonal roasted chicken salad. The side of Brussel sprouts had no taste, as did the truffled mashed potatoes. It was understandably busy the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but we had to wait 30 minutes for three simple meals. I will give them credit for bringing us a free appetizer for our patience (a dessert would have made more sense as we were finished eating our meal).

    It was very hard to make a reservation for lunch a week in advance. They only had 3:15 which is too late for lunch, especially with my 87 year old Mom.. When I called to see if they could move it up earlier , I was put on hold for over 5 minutes two separate times.the reservations yet we’re a bit abrupt each time. Finally got through and all they had was11:30 which we accepted. Then the Day of they moved it to 1:15 which was much better for us but then we had to rearrange our morning quickly . Servers at the luncheon were really nice and hospitable . Sent a bday dessert for Moms bday, which was very nice. Thank you, Audrey

    Our server was amazing, and the service was great. The tea sandwiches were lacking filling and the egg salad was dry. The truffled chicken salad sandwich was delicious but it barely had any filling, and was mostly bread. I would expect the food to be better quality. Secondly, there was a serious sanitation issue. Our table and chairs had crumbs on them, the menus were stained with finger prints. I would give the service 5 stars. Food, tea selection, and cleanliness get 3 stars at best.

    Afternoon tea was excellent. We're from London so we have high standards. The menu was classic and expertly presented. The choices of teas were of a very high standard and nicely served - leaf tea of course. The staff were most solicitous and kindly paid attention to the fact it was our daughter's 21st birthday. They surprised us all after we'd finished our tea by presenting our daughter with a gorgeous (& delicious) chocolate mousse cake with 1 brilliant candle burning. She was very pleased to be able to blow out at least 1 candle on her birthday. It was very busy on Sunday afternoon - I'm glad I booked well ahead. It's pricey but worth it for the surroundings and the BG style.

    I came here with two friends to celebrate their birthdays. We had a wonderful lunch, the service was great, the food was delicious, the drinks were tasty though not consistently served. This was in regards to the size of the pour / the size glass they were served in. We ordered the same drink three times and each time it came in a different sized glass and a different size portion, which made it seem like they were not worth the same price each time. Nonetheless I will definitely come back here again.

    This is our favorite stop every time we come to the city. The service is exceptional and the staff remembers us. I would rather that they don’t sacrifice food quality in these times. I’d rather they raise prices. It’s definitely not as high quality of food in the past three visits as pre-pandemic.
