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 Mon-Sat from 2:30-5:00 PM and Sun from 2:30-4:00 PM, reservations required.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HOURS OF OPERATION WILL BE REVISED BEGINNING ON SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

I treated my oldest friend in the world to afternoon tea for her birthday and it could not have been a more perfect experience! The service was attentive, the food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our tea and champagne.

Afternoon tea to celebrate my auntie's birthday. The tea is very good. Sandwiches are good except egg salad, dessert is average. But view is nice. Worth of visiting for special occasion.

Such a great place for conversations and catching up. I’ve always had a good experience here. For me, it’s between BG & the St Regis for coffee/tea. The plaza? Go here instead.

Wonderful afternoon tea experience! Everything was delicious and the staff was superb. Our water glasses were kept full and we never felt rushed. Although we did not have a window view of Central Park, the room was elegant and lovely. Will definitely come again!

Went to BG for afternoon tea the day after Valentine’s Day with my husband and our 6 month old daughter. First of all I have to say that I called multiple times to make sure they were okay with infants being in the restaurant at tea time. My baby is not fussy and doesn’t cry or create a scene in public so I wasn’t even worried, I was more concerned because of the noise level and space.
We got an excellent table that had room for her car seat and her diaper bag and it was in the corner and away from other tables.
This was my second time at BG for afternoon tea and I have never seen more snooty people under one roof ever before. Both times there was some one there who felt they were more entitled to be there than us. First time an older couple who had to wait for the table made multiple comments about our large table of girls who came for my friends birthday. Absolutely inappropriate and unnecessary comments about our race and how her husband was some big shot doctor. She couldn’t believe we got a table and she had to wait and sit next to us.
And today, two girls who were sitting next to us, who came after us, stopped us mid tea to say that my daughters presence was “distracting” because they came for “peace and quiet”. If you have been to BG, it’s anything but quiet and peaceful. It’s a lovely tea cafe and bar. Let me repeat that my child was not being fussy, not crying, she was just there and that seemed to have bothered them. She wasn’t even sitting on their side.
We respectfully said sorry and asked for the check and left. However, before we could get up and leave the manager, Ismael came by to look at our baby and started talking to us about his baby. I asked him if they have a no baby policy and he said absolutely not and I told him about what the girls sitting to us had said. He said that if they had a problem they should’ve asked for an other table and waited. He was extremely nice and accommodating. Tea is great but the guests are way over their heads.

It was a nice experience. I booked this place thinking we'll be seated at the window seat with the nice chairs but we were seated at a regular long table with other customers very close to us. It was very loud around us but the afternoon tea was very delicious.
