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.

Food was ok. Nothing memorable not even the service. I was with my 10yr old daughter she choose a grilled sandwich and soup. By far the worst experience ever Do not bring you children they will be disappointed

Great store! So much to do and look at. Easy to spend 3 or 4 hours just by hitting every floor. I love the Saks Cafe, the food is excellent. For a late lunch, I had the vegetarian seasonal soup and asparagus risotto. It was excellent! Service was great by Jaclyn. Fantastic sales on every floor. Unbelievable shoe department!

I do never writte a review, althought this time I cannot resist as the experience at the sunglasses department was very desapointing. The sale' assosiate named jean- claude was very rude, his attitude was very bad and agresive and refused to show me a different shade of tom ford glasses. I was shocked. I was at the store to make...

Managed to spend over three hours here shopping with a 7 year old. Visit early in the day for a calmer experience. Had researched various items online which are a fraction of the cost here than they are in the UK. Daughter very pleased with her purchases. Visited at time of Easter Egg hunt so fun searching for those around... More

When he called me this morning to advise that it wasn't received yesterday, I called Saks customer... More
