Description: 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.

We went there for an early dinner before a show and had a wonderful experience. The decor is beautiful and service was stellar. And the food was amazing. We started with a special octopus salad appetizer that was light and a unique mix of favors. I had the lobster salad which was full of delicious, plump lobster meat and absolutely... More

Lunch for two on a Tuesday.... Sensibly pre-booked, as the restaurant was very busy, and full of emaciated and "braying" Park Avenue Princesses, "doing lunch" We had a first class two course lunch, with innovative starters, ( tuna tartare, with wasabi, and roasted heritage beets ) mains were just a selection of side vegetables, but brilliantly done! Attentive and polished... More

This place has all you need for a charming lunch. Excellent food, good service, fair price. Historical building location. Not only tourist but also locals come to eat at BG. Make a reservation, because it is usually very requested. Ask for the whispering chair, romantic seats, and you will get the nicest view of the Central Park, for two people.!... More

What a delight it was to have lunch at BG, on the seventh floor of Bergdorf Goodman. How glorious to sit at a window table with a view of Central Park below. The delicious food, the 'old worldly' ambience and the excellent service made for a very memorable dining experience. The restaurant is extremely popular so it is advisable to... More

We were visiting NY and decided to eat at this place based on the good reviews. First time we are disappointed with a decision based on reviews. We didn't make a reservation. It was around 5:30 PM and the hostess told us it was around 30 min wait. Immediately I went on Yelp and made a reservation 10 min later... More

We had a perfect lunch with our daughters celebrating their birthday. The food was delicious, the view beautiful and the service impeccable. Our waiter treated our daughters like princesses. It could not have been better.

We were seated by the window as requested with great views of central park but did feel we were abit close to the tables either side of us. We had to wait quite a while for the food to... More
