Sophistication on the Seventh Floor of Bergdorf Goodman with afternoon into evening Central Park views. BG is a modern interpretation of the aristocratic social salon. Like a Park Avenue residence from the age of cosmopolitan glamour. Well-appointed and bright, the drawing room atmosphere is an intimate conversational setting for lunch, tea and early supper or cocktails. The light and sparkling menu is a modern take on classic New York fare.

As a tourist this was great place to people watch and the food was excellent whilst doing this :-) Great menu, lovely staff and a super view if you are lucky enough to see the Park from where you are sitting. Definitely recommend it.

I have been going to BG Café for over 30 years. It started as Café on Five way back then and then moved to the 7th floor with a smaller restaurant on the cosmetic level. The menu has basically stayed the same and the favorite is still the Gotham Salad which I have most of the time. It was actually... More

What a gorgeous restaurant and I was fortunate to have a table where I had a spectacular view of Central Park, Museum Mile and beyond. Service was impeccable from the moment i sat down to sadly when I had to leave. The décor is lovely and elegant. My only complaint was for such an elegant restaurant, the noise level of... More

Starts from 3pm, (we booked), if there are only 2 in your party you may get a window table which looks over 5th Avenue and the Plaza. Worth asking for this as it adds to the occasion. 42 US Dollars each , plus 18 US dollars if you add a generous glass of Veuve Cliquot! plus tax and tip. Sandwiches... More

I do come here a bit more than I should, it is expensive BUT so lovely. The food is great and the furnishings grand and the view serene. I Strongly suggest trying early or late in the afternoon (though not too late or they request you move on) when the place feels hushed and cozy...last reservations for tea are perfect.... More

Leisurely lunch with a girlfriend on the 7th floor at Bergdorf's. Lovely wine, tea, cappuccino, I could hear her speak. the soup was delicious -a winter soup with vegetables and barley, and the bread rolls and crisps were delicious. The Gotham salad followed which was chopped small and deviled eggs. Eggs were delicious, salad was fresh and a lot, enough... More

Watch "Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorfs" before you go to New York and make a lunch booking here at the same time. It's the place to people-watch and is booked out. Not cheap but worth it for the experience. Great buzzy atmostphere. Ask for a table near the window. If there is just two of you for coffee, ask for... More

My family and I ate here for lunch during the holidays. It is a great location to over look Central Park and very good food! I little on the pricey side but not too pretentious. Overall we were pleased! Definitley make a reservation. It does get crowded during lunch hours.

Wonderful and exquisite! Food was top notch! Able to look over skyline and Central Park! An elegant break from fabulous shopping! I'd highly recommend the deviled eggs for an appetizer! Loved it!

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.
