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.

BG was awesome!!!! Can't wait to come back!!! Love Eric the bartender, he made amazing drinks. He gave me 3 tastes of different wines because I could not decide what I felt like drinking. I can be very high maintenance and he was patient and kind. Also very attentive. Had the cheese plate at the bar before lunch. Great cheeses.. Sat down at our table, and ordered a ton of food. Everything we ordered was delicious. Scott was our server and he did a wonderful job serving us. I would request him next time. BG had a great vibe, beautiful view, a lot of pretty people everywhere, and I love that I can buy a pair of shoes and walk upstairs and have a cocktail. Fun!!!!

Lunch at BG is like stepping into the Sondheim song "Ladies Who Lunch". The food is great and the ambience/view is quintessential NYC. Staff is friendly and efficient. Wine list is top notch. My only criticism is the wear and tear/cleanliness of the chairs. Between diners, the chairs were not cleaned off (the previous diner must have had a lot of issues getting the food from the plate to the mouth as the chair was littered with crumbs and lettuce). Instead of being in a hurry to turn the table, take an extra two minutes and clean off the chairs. We will all appreciate that.

We got Nick, a fantastic waiter who did a great job, just the right combination of friendly and delicate. The BG, their signature desert, is wildly overrated but the afternoon tea is great (even if pricey), so was the soup of the day (cauliflower and coconut milk).

Wonderful experience! A real treat if you're visiting or looking for something fun/special to do I would definitely recommend the tea. I love going to afternoon tea and this was one of the best I have been to! The food was wonderful, the tea selection was on the small side, and we mentioned it was our friends birthday and they brought her a very pricey dessert on the house, which was a wonderful surprise. The price was also right on par with any other tea I have ever done, a bit expensive but no more pricey than other places and possibly a superior experience.

The waiter was extremely attentive to us; we mentioned it was our anniversary before we got seated and by the end of the meal, our waiter had sent over a dessert to commemorate the day. Very Sweet!!!

BG continues to be that special place in mid-town. The food and service are always spot on no matter how busy. The personnel that greet you as you enter the restaurant are extremely pleasant and engaging. It truly is a hidden jewel within the store. I would strongly recommend the BG deviled eggs as they are awesome. Their daily vegetables are always creative and delicious. When we ate there the vegetable of the day was Brussel Sprouts with bacon and cheese. They were phenomenal!! As was the filet of beef.

Annual trip to NYC would not be complete without our visit to BG. Deviled Eggs are a must and the Asparagus & Lobster soups were very tasty. Entrees of Chopped Salad and Scallops were on the mark with a side of Brussels sprouts. Service was outstanding. Early meal so the restaurant was not SRO as usual. See you next year!

Very cramped seating but service was excellent. High tea was above average. Fresh finger sandwiches, excellent scones and clotted cream, petit fours were a bit boring in presentation and taste. Quality tea. Just wished it wasn’t so noisy in there. Will go back to try the lunch menu.

Saturday lunch was buzzing which made it fun. The service from check in to check out was attentive and courteous. While pricey the lunch menu had lovely options and our choices were well executed (i.e. delicious). We had been at BG’s for afternoon tea on another occasion and were disappointed. But lunch was a winner.
