This was my second time visiting BG restaurant. Last time I was here for the afternoon tea and I enjoyed it a lot. This time I got myself soup and an entree. The lobster bisque was delicious. However, their gnocchi was a little too heavy for me. It had too much oil in it and I couldn't finish it. The wine is good though. There are mainly three reasons to come here - view on Central Park, people watching and afternoon tea. To be honest, I stop by mainly for the experience rather than the food (not memorable).
Overall, good.

Bergdorf Goodman screens exclusivity and hence why I tried this lunch at this venerable establishment. I was welcomed with energy immediately upon my arrival, the associate confirming my reservation and my request for a window view. The ambiance is a bit dated and the tables a tad too close together. (if you have a party of two and want a window view, ask to be seated at the end of the bar where there are two sets of club chairs - there is ample room to "spread out" and enjoy lunch).

I am a fit and thin individual and the two-top that I was led to was wedged in between two other two-tops....It is NYC..I get it...but even for me I found myself pushing the table to one side to get to the bench seat and the window facing Central Park. The noise level was a bit much for me. I could hear every word of either party to my left or right, hence again, we are just a bit too close. The wait staff is truly unbelievable. They have your drink order and bread tray to you before you can say your "ABCs". Honestly, the selection of breads/butter was probably the best thing on the table. I ordered an entrée salad. At $28, I would have hoped for a greater mix of greens than just "dumb" iceberg lettuce. The other components were very good (the chicken, ham, beets, etc)...but the lettuce really set me off. I did see the other tables' entrée selections and they were very well represented. $$$$$$ All told, I spent about $40 for lunch (club soda, entrée salad, and tip)....It was a nice experience and a novel one, but not one that I would probably repeat because there is better lunch value (food to price) elsewhere in the city.

Dining at BG is a reflection of Bergdorf’s aesthetic: Colorful, a bit chaotic, fun to watch, a bit pretentious, and girly all at once. BG caters to women of a certain pedigree and tourists who just want to enjoy the scene and be seen. A few extra dollars per dish but the menu is creative, the service efficient and not a thread out of place. A meal for two with no drinks came out to $105 - all together with a shared appetitizer and dessert. It’s a fun place to seek refuge while contemplating if you need the $600 shoes.

The restaurant itself is lovely and it is normally a great place for a bite. That said, the service on the day we were there was horrible - the waiter never returned to the table to ask how everything was, the bus boy tried to clear while we were still eating (a cardinal restaurant sin) and then cleared one person's food while the other was still eating even after being asked not to, and it took forever to get his attention. While the regular menu food is always great, the afternoon tea service was expensive and spartan - unappetizing very dry sandwiches (that were clearly sitting out) and only one scone on the plate (there are always 2 per person at every other tea salon on the planet); moreover, presumably because only one of us ordered the tea, instead of presenting everything on the regular tea stand, small plates were put on the table - which was very poor and ruined the enjoyment of the tea.

Very disappointing for Afternoon Tea. The bread on all the sandwiches was dry and stale. The sweets were nothing special. I always love BH for the lunch scallops, brown rolls, champagne and the service. I had high hopes which were dashed. I’m glad I was alone, so that I did not disappoint a guest.

Afternoon tea service was just ok. We were expecting better considering it was the restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman! But service was erratic, food was good but nothing extraordinary, and the tea selection was underwhelming. What we did enjoy was the beautiful room and the view!

Exceptional experience with afternoon/evening tea service. The server explained us the menu with much simplicity, to our delight. As it was our anniversary, they surprised us with a pumpkin crème brûlée - possibly the best ever I have had. The noise level was a bit high for our taste but that is something one cannot control much.

Our waiter Adam was great, and I would not have gone into BG otherwise so it was fun to shop around. The scones and tea were good, but the sandwiches were rather average and jam in jars is a bit odd. For the price I’d rather not have been hungry afterwards so quickly. It was fun to go, but probably only once.

In December 2016, we were married in NYC at City Hall, just a few days before Christmas. Following the ceremony, we had an intimate, afternoon tea "reception" for our party of 5 at BGs. It was the perfect venue to celebrate our day - the staff was so very kind, friendly, and accommodating...

Every year just before Christmas, we spend a few days in NYC to enjoy the holiday vibe that is unique to NYC. This year, we came back to also celebrate our anniversary at BGs. During this trip, we were lucky to get in two afternoon teas at BGs - one for our anniversary, and one to also include two of my nieces who were visiting for the day. We all had a fabulous time!

We always book time at BGs - during any of our visits to NYC!

I've been to BG for lunch twice so far. The first time I didn't have a reservation and the line waiting out the door stretched way down the hall but they offered me a seat at the bar within five minutes so I took it. The server behind the bar was courteous and attentive. The food arrived within a very reasonable time. The lobster mac and cheese was served in an individual cast-iron skillet, piping hot, just a tad overdone but very good, and the pumpkin creme brûlée for dessert was heaven on a plate, thin brittle crust, rich creamy custard and absolutely delicious. Altogether it was a very pleasant experience.

I went back today, this time with a reservation, and was seated at a table almost immediately. I had the ahi tuna tartare for lunch and a repeat on the pumpkin crime brûlée for dessert. Both were scrumptious. The service was prompt, friendly and courteous. I made another reservation for lunch next month on my way out.

I'd go here for lunch every day if I could afford it but alas, this place is a budget-buster, although the food and the service are worth the price, so I'll limit it to a periodic treat and count it as something to look forward to.

My wife and I went for afternoon tea service. Since it's was so close to Christmas the store and restaurant were extremely busy and noisy. The tea and food were good - service was as expected - but the overall experience didn't live up to what we had heard. It was not a typical tea service ambiance - but we enjoyed ourselves.
