Grand Salon & Bar at Baccarat Hotel New York
Kindly call #212.790.8867 for Lunch & Afternoon Tea reservations.
A spirit of fancy, rhythm and ritual keeps the plush, platinum-and-champagne-hued Grand Salon humming throughout the day.
From breakfast, when a variety of French pastries abound across a central marble table, to late into the evening, long after the chandeliers have dimmed to a coquettish wattage, when nightcaps in cut-crystal tumblers are enjoyed among friends old and new.
In between, the Grand Salon will be the host of light lunches served in the sumptuous seating nooks and high-backed banquettes that flank the salon’s runway-style center aisle.
Starting at 4pm guests can pair cocktails with French-inflected small plates.
After 4pm daily, seating is available first come, first seated for non-hotel guests.
First time. 9 am breakfast. Magnificent room with many kinds of seating for quiet conversations. Pleasant helpful staff. Enjoyed oatmeal with warm apple compote, sausage links, delicious whole wheat toast, vanilla waffle with berries, bacon, plentiful good coffee, iced tea. Eager to return to try drinks at the appealing bar, dinner.
It was a wonderful time!
Excellent experience. Staff is wonderful and so professional, friendly and accommodating. Cuisine was good and presented beautifully.
Elegant and exquisite
Enjoyed it, but way overpriced. My guest was shocked, even for Manhattan.
Awesome. Tiffany our server was great, nice personality and very accomodating. Nice ambiance
Food tasted great but everything was cold
The vanilla bean waffles were amazing!
Love it every time!!!
It was my second visit. We had breakfast this time. Rally enjoyed the NY style breakfast.
Incredibly rude service. We are regular customers, having had clients spend over 128 nights over the last 4 quarters at the hotel. Rude food and beverage manager interrupted client meeting to tell us we owed $300 over and above our $350 bill for a "$75 per hour minimum". He didn't bring the check beforehand, embarrassed us in front of our clients and was incredibly rude. Who heard of a retroactive charge? . He could have politely brought the bill earlier when we requested it and said we would have to order more in order to stay. Instead the food and beverage manager was actively rude to us in front of our clients. He said there was a line outside and he needed our table (which, at 5:30, was a rude, patented lie), We have told our clients from the Gulf and Europe to switch from this hotel and restaurant as a result. Overcharged $150 for two glasses of house wine with no apologies. Rude attitude will go the way of the dodo bird in the next recession - a great short! If you can't provide good service to your regular customers, cheat them and lie to them. Great strategy. Unconscionably bad service and rudeness to regular clients. Imagine how they treat other guests..
Beautiful interior, grand space. Service was polite but slow. Food was great for most everybody in my party but my mushroom soup so very mediocre. Certainly would not recommend it.
It got really crowded by 1pm( we were there for brunch).
The check was exuberant. I mean really exuberant.
For Afternoon tea make sure to tell the restaurant... opentable reservations are not for afternoon tea.
Quite frankly I am shocked at how terrible the service was. I have been coming to Baccarat for years and have never had an issue, but upon walking in we asked the hostess if we could be reseated as my grandmother has some back issues. The salon was empty and as I asked her if one table was available she turned and said "well, actually, if you would just listen to what I'm saying, you would know." After that, we were seated and my grandmother's soup came out 40 minutes before me or my mother's burger did so she was left sitting with nothing to do. For a $350 tab, I sincerely expected more, especially after years of good service.
Love the ambience so gorgeous, felt very posh. Food was excellent!
Gracious service, the most beautiful atmosphere in the city, and while not cheap, not insanely overpriced. Its something straight out of crazy Rich Asians. They deliver wonderful drinks and food without a hint of arrogance and real warmth, at least by New York standards.
Amazing tea service
The best restaurant I've ever been to.
Excellence in service, food, interior, everything.
Aline was our waitress. She was extremely nice and professional. Food was beyond amazing. We ordered the steak. It's to be discussed that this isn't steakhouse. Ive read reviews that the food is small, which it is (the steak can probably fit in the palm of your hand and the potatoes that come with the steak are as small as a literal dime however, the taste is exquisite. The Grand Salon isn't set up like a restaurant but really after it's name. A Salon. (In french means a living room) but the Grand Salon is more like an upscale living room with eclectic peices of furniture and decor.
Great place. Beautiful decor. Elegant eating wonderful service.
The restaurant, which is really only bar service, is reserved for hotel guests. The staff is officious and the only things to eat are bar food. A poor experience trying to get in and no much to eat if you do
I love this place. They have the best scones and a very friendly staff. We were lucky to have experienced a mini fashion show while we were there
Danny the bartender was amazing. He made me drinks all night. I didn’t order anything he just brought me his specialty every time I asked for a drink. Beautiful place great service Amazing bartenders!!
Very little food, expensive price. Beautiful place!
I spent a good time in the luxurious atmosphere .
I had nice kale salad topped with grilled salmon.
Better book a table before you go .
The perfect place for a quiet lunch. Centrally located, quiet with tables that are spaced far enough apart for private conversation.
Excellent venue for any occasion . Very chic and stylish . Small but well curated menu.
Yes, ambiance is very romantic, sparkly and lovely, however I was expecting more for the quality of tea.
Quite disappointing to have not-great-tasting-tea at high tea...
Absolutely loved this beautiful, charming restaurant. The ambience, the relaxed atmosphere, the gorgeous chandeliers, vases, glasses, everything is Baccarat! Also loved the fresh flowers, the different style tables and chairs. The food was so good, yes a bit pricey and portion size was decent, but the presentation was on point! Our service was good but our busboy has a bit of a problem understanding us, but doesn’t deter me from coming back. A truly special restaurant👌👌👏
The staff was very pretentious and uppity. They lacked grace.
Beverage pricy and food portions are small. The restaurant was definitely wrongly categorized in terms of price. I filtered on $$ options for a quick lunch and was very surprised by the prices.
There are many hidden gems in the city and this is one of them. Love everything; decor is beautiful, service impeccable, food is delicious and beautifully presented. Great champagne, teas. Hostess very accommodating, thank you for the beautiful table!!! I don’t mind coming back again and again.
Baccarat is a beautiful salon and is a very elegant space for celebrating special occasions with drinks served in Baccarat glassware. Many thanks to the hostess ( Yvonne) who was very kind and helpful to celebrate my best friend's birthday!
Everything about the Grand Salon at the Baccarat is superb. The food and service are excellent, the tea sommelier is wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, and the quality of the dishes they serve is top of the line. Cannot recommend it more highly.
I have been to here at least 10 other times with my clients due to only location-my office near by. It is one of nice places in midtown, but it is so sad to feel staffs' lack of service from the Hotel opening. Food is a average, nothing special.
We went for afternoon tea in February. Went back to try lunch. Expensive but enjoyable. Coffee and ginger tea are over priced at $14.00 each. Terrific ambiance. Staff although nice were not as attentive as expected of a fine elegant place.
The person that seated us was rude. Looking me up and down as I approached her.
Among the best breakfast service offered in New York.
