Nice store it had every doll you can imagine. They even had a baby section where you can buy babies. The displays were nice and they even had items that the girls can buy like pocket books with American Girl on it and t-shirts.

We had a ball seeing all of the dolls, clothes, and pets for these girls. We experienced the doll salon and were given numerous tips of how to best take care of our new dolls. We happened to ask a question to Sharon D., who is a personal shopper. We did not have an appointment with her, however, she took... More

My daughter had a nice time here picking out her doll and then we went to the lunch at 2:30. The food was mediocre but the service was not good at all. The seating was supposed to be an hour and at 3:30 we still had not gotten our dessert. Not sure if we would visit again.

My girls have grown up with the American girl dolls so this was someplace we had to visit. From the time you enter the staff is so nice and ready to help with anything you need. I loved seeing the displays of the historical dolls and all of their collections. The choices of dolls and their accessories is huge. It... More

This trip included a hair treatment and cleaning of her doll. The purchase of two outfits and lunch for the three of us. The... More

I have 3 daughters ages 6,7,10. We surprised them with a day at The New York American Girl place for Spring Break. They were totally excited and almost overwhelmed by the things to see and do with their dolls. We visited on a Thursday which was great because although it was busy we were able to move around and slowly... More

We had 4pm reservations for tea. When we got there 10 minutes early, there was a long line up. We had to wait 20 minutes inline before being seated. Our server was not very attentive, she seemed to just want to rush us out of there. I had informed them it was my daughter's birthday and they were supposed to... More

The American Girl doll store in NY is very nice. There are beautiful dolls in display. The historical doll floor is the best where the dolls are set up with scenes from the time period they lived. There is also a floor for bitty babies and the customized American Girl. (where you can choose hair, skin and eye color). Overall... More

Enjoyed looking around but the dolls are very expensive. Even if you don't collect these dolls, your little girl will enjoy picking which doll looks most like her. Not a must see, but fun for girls of all ages.

We were in NYC Easter weekend and went to the American Girl Place for breakfast on a Friday morning. We arrived a little late but they were nice and ushered us in quickly as the breakfast had already started for the 9:30AM seating. The dining room is very girly and all of the young ladies seemed to be having a... More
