The Saks store on 5th Avenue is a beautiful store to browse through. The cosmetics department is absolutely beautiful and I'll say now that the staff in this department were friendly and helpful. Everywhere else, however, they could learn some customer service technique from Bloomingdales or Lord and Taylor. Oh well, guess I ended up spending my money there because... More

High end top notch brands are located here. All the major players. I do not think the quality was any greater here than stores else where. the prices here are at premium for tourists etc. yes they are expensive, but there are better stores and deals to be had else where.

Definitely worth a visit if not just to see the Christmas decorations on the ground floor as they are really beautiful, magical & tastefully done. This store is full of quality up market brands so be warned, you could do some serious damage to your credit card. Probably my most favourite stores in New York even if it's just for... More

I used to be a SaksFirst card member and used to shop in the Chevy Chase store all the time since I live nearby but my experience in NYC has ruined the brand for me. With so many shopping options especially in NYC, there is absolutely no reason to put up with the awful customer service at this NYC location.... More

My new favorite place to shop. :-) So many floors, huge never-ending selection of clothes. But if you want to do big shopping, bring a lot of money. Simply wonderful!

If I had to sum up Saks Fifth Avenue? When the interview the staff the must look for attitude before anything else. The place and the people working there are certain they are the best in the world. Hard to disagree to be honest. Just don't let yourself be intimidated, because they really do know their stuff and really want... More

Whilst in NYC had to have a peek in Saks. It is a posh department store, laid out nicely but too expensive for our pockets. The only thing we coul afford was a trip to the restroom. There are designer labels at designer prices.

Styling etc. just worth it for walking in and having a look. Ride the elevators! I personally hate shopping but the fame of the name made us go in for a quick visit and we did not regret it.
