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 daily from 3-5 PM, reservations required.

Too strong of onions in otherwise wonderful dish. Second time the onion taste overpowered the other flavors.

Lunch like it’s supposed to be, elegant setting, delicious food, cocktails, unobtrusive service, and you’re on BG’s 7th floor (one of the most beautiful places I’ve n the retail world). A great respite from the chaos of 5th Ave. A wonderful spot for a date, business or family.

Tea and scones were great. Scones would be greater if warm. Sandwiches and sweets were disappointing. Just blah. $45 each is reasonable for an afternoon tea but for what is offered, it's not a deal.
If you're in the store, it could be nice. Not a place to come out of your way.
Staff was very nice and accommodating of our 8 month old. Got a high chair. Also brought a birthday dessert with a candle in it for our guest of honor.

Our waiter was noticeably upset that we weren’t having the preset tea menu and chose to have dessert instead. He even went to complain to the hostess in front of us.
Our experience was greatly changed however when the manager came over and joked/took a photo/and flirted with my mother ( it was her 70th birthday.) He was great and changed our perception completely.
We didn’t see much more of the waiter/bartender which was fine.
We had great dessert and tea! The manager of the restaurant was everything a restaurant like BG needs. Polite, funny, kind, knowledgeable, and gave us the upmost in service.
Thank you to him for making my mother’s birthday tea fantastic!

Space was great, food very good, however, everything was rushed due to the kitchen being closed at 7pm. Server kept coming over to take our order so decisions had to be made very fast. We were unaware that the kitchen closes at 7 otherwise we would have made the reservation earlier and why was a booking taken 30 minutes before the kitchen closes. It was an unsatisfactory experience.

If you are looking for the experience of eating at a high end department store in NYC, this may be it. We stopped in for pre-dinner champagne and appetizers. The food was good, and the wine list was great. Overpriced, however.

The host was rude, but our server was friendly and service was prompt.

Not sure I’d go again, but it fit the bill for what we needed at the time.

A very nice tea, though I wish they would let you have some dietary flexibility (neither my tea companion or I eat ham). It's not a quiet place - it could get quite loud at times, but our seats by the window were impeccable and the tea meal, though seemingly small, was quite tasty and filling.

Our experience was top notch from start to finish. The host stand staff was welcoming and accommodating. We were seated at a lovely table by the front windows (please note that there are no bad tables, this just happened to be nice because my guest is from out of town) Our waiter, Adam was a true professional. He knew the menu thoroughly and gave us solid guidance in our selections. Our food was impressive- delicious and beautifully presented. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We had a wonderful time and look forward to a return visit soon. Thank you for a delightful experience!

Neither of us had been to the BG restaurant before. It was a good introduction. My companion didn't particularly care for her salad, but my entree - the croquet Madame - was excellent, and maybe even a little too big. Lovely luncheon environment with careful service.

Our waiter was not very attentive and not very polite—seemed bored. A long wait despite reservations, due to staff not clearing the table that was ready...there were quite a few “just one moments”, while we waited for “someone” to set up the table for tea service.
