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

I am American and own a house in New York but live in London. My husband is on business in NYC this week so I placed a $700 online order on 04/23 and paid for next day delivery to his hotel on 04/24. When he called me this morning to advise that it wasn't received yesterday, I called Saks customer... More

Their light show and window display was the only reason for me. I would probably never shop there. Not my style or the price range... But- they know their stuff at Christmas time! The Yetti story was so funny and the display was awesome.

Saks is my idea of heaven! From the second you walk in, surrounded in luxury, it's amazing. I had fantastic customer service at the Fendi boutique; a young woman I purchased a bag from was one of the sweetest salespeople I have ever encountered. The dress selection is fantastic, and the shoe section is to die for. Love, love, love... More

We watched the projected light show on the front of Saks several times - absolutely breathtaking. Don't miss this if you're visiting NYC at Christmas
