I visited with my 5 year old daughter and not only did she enjoy herself, so did I. We attended the afternoon tea party and the variety of foods and beverages offered were quite impressive. There is something for everyone to eat and drink and my daughter's doll got her own little seat! The decor is gorgeous and our server... More

if you are going, make a plan. Go to the Bistro and get a personal Shopper. The personal Shopper doesn't make commission but can help you get through the crowds and knows all about the dolls and the history and if something is not there can order it for you too. Make it a hassel free visit to be remembered.

Get the personal shopper! It's free and it will enhance your experience. Reservations are necessary although twice I was able to use the service without one. If your girl is into dolls a trip here at least once is worth it.

I have trouble rating this store. On one hand, it was the experience of a lifetime for the 7 year old girl, the daughter of a family friend, who took us there. The store has many expensive items but nice things at reasonable prices can be found. The hair salon was a lot of fun, well organized but it could... More

This store is huge. Several floors of wall to wall dolls and accessories. The staff is super helpful and friendly. It's a little girl's dream store (if they are into baby dolls/American Girl dolls). Expensive, but worth it. Brought my niece here for her birthday as a surprise, and made reservations at the American Girl Cafe for lunch as well....needless... More

We took our Girl Scout troop of 5th graders for lunch. They all loved it. Great organization, choices for food and drink, and great presentation. We had a tax exempt problem and the manager Kristin was fantastic with it! She helped me get it sorted out even after we were back home. Highly recommend going here!

I took my daughter to New York for Thanksgiving and we stopped in to the American Girl store to purchase the Bitty Twins. I was very satisfied with the service.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
