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.

    Classic haute Manhattan. Almost a ghost from a more luxe time. The view is classic New York, the food is excellently prepared "American fare" with an emphasis on fresh ingredients. The Gotham Salad remains the O.G.Chopped into bits, tossed with 1000 Island (or Dijon vinaigrette) is de rigeur. Desserts are decadent, especially the high end ice cream with alcohol steeped into it. An early dinner is divine. The wonderful wait staff has the time to truly do their thing. To dine at a slightly off-hour is to know how the rich and famous are treated.

    My first time at BG after a day trip to the Museum of Modern Art with my husband and 2 children ( age 19 and 10). The reviews were good and did not disappoint. From the beginning we needed to move up our reservation since we finished early and the young woman I spoke to on the phone could not have been more pleasant and accommodating! Food and atmosphere were delightful and service was exceptional, particularly our waiter I believe his name was Paulo..timely, attentive oh so friendly and a pleasure to talk to. I feel like we tried everything and all was delicious including the drinks! Looking forward to our next NYC day trip… BG will be a must for us!

    Not good. For the first time ever service poor. It tainted the experience! I’d never have friends for tea there again! The sandwiches were stale and the chicken salad tasted of garlic. Neither the champagne or tea was refreshed. We spent $300 for a below average experience

    Lovely, elegant afternoon tea in this one-of-a kind shopping heaven. Unlimited tea, beautiful dining room, amazing views, and attentive staff do not rush guests. Food however, though tasty, was rather skimpy for the $120 price for two, and what was referred to as clotted cream was, in all appearance, butter.

    We have been coming for years, every time we are in NYC. The last few time the quality of the food has gotten worse, the portions even smaller and the prices have gone up. Even though the ambience is very nice it is certainly not what it used to be, sadly.

    Marvelous lunch. Attentive service, delicious food, charming ambiance. BG is truly a classic dining experience. It is expensive, thus the middling “value” rating; however, it is worth every penny. This is where I bring visitors desiring a sophisticated but casual midtown experience. Don’t change a thing.

    We always like to go to BG for late lunch or early dinner. Our reservation today was for 5:30, we arrived at 5:40 and the waiter took us to the table to tell us we had to order soon because the kitchen closes at 6. After that rush, they were cleaning and preparing the place for next day… they came several times to remove the appetizer without letting us even try them.. we felt rushed and couldn’t even finish our champagne and cocktails because of the rush to eat as soon as possible. Definitely impossible to go back at that time if they won’t give you the attention you deserve and pay for.

    Seated very close to the table next to us. Their backside touched our table when sliding out. The people next to us was visible upset and kept staring at the front door, us, and the couple on their other side.

    It was my first time eating at the restaurant, it had been on my list for awhile and finally it took a friend coming to the city to make it happen. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and the service throughout was excellent. Loved our afternoon Tea and everything on the tiers. I- we will be back. It was a lovely time- thank you.

    Before I could afford to have lunch at BG I did, it's been about 20 plus years I have been treating myself there, so for me to write this review is heart breaking. It's started when I swung by and asked to make an 1130am reservation for one and the young girl told me they weren't open. I know that, that why I wanted to make a reservation. She told me to come back when they opened, so I made the reservation on open table. There was an awkward interaction when I came back for lunch and my reservation was already in the system. They sit me down and I score a seat by the window my favorite spot in the restaurant but yet my bubble chairs are gone. Scanning the menu I see that my beloved lobster Napoleon is no longer offered. Thats a shame since it was such a BG unique dish. Change is constant and one needs to adapt so I ordered the lobster mac and cheese and new to the menu the duck dumplings with the pineapple mock-tail. The mocktail was too thick and sweet, more like a smoothie but not. I ended up ordering a coke and they took the drink off the check without me asking. The dumplings were meh, they could do better with the dipping sauce and compare to China town dumplings insanely over priced. But inflation and all that right? The lobster mac at $44 was was a soupy mix of over cooked pasta disappointment. How can you mess up mac and cheese? Almost forgot, they went around with what seemed like corn bread squares but when I asked the server if he could bring me the old seeded bread he was able to with butter that was too hard (cold). Seems like I am being nit-picking but for $100 lunch some details shouldn't be over looked and the food should be better than meh. I gave it 3 stars and not less because like in any bad relationship you romanticize the past and hope they change .

    Disappointed. It is extremely loud and people are packed in as close as they can get them. The small sampling that is their tea service is pales in comparison to other high end places for tea.
