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.

Obviously, the excellent reviews of this establishment might have been written by people with money to burn...well, we were just looking for a light healthy lunch, two friends in the city for the day...a beautiful day and we are thin ..ladies...not heavy eaters. I agree with others that the service was excellent. We should have stopped at two $12 bowls... More

I recently, traveled to NYC on a girl’s trip with two of my girlfriends. We stared our trip out with afternoon tea at BG. The tea sandwiches were great; however, the scone was delicious, as where the French macaroons. The presentation was perfect; the items were served on a three tier platter. We sat right by the windows and had... More

Having visited BG in January when we received very good service, I was a fool to believe this was a great place to take my husband and our two friends out to dinner here for my husbands birthday. I had made a reservation for a table with a view, weeks in advance only to be told that this was not... More

I had asked on TA forums for a recommendation for somewhere special to take my daughter on our visit to NYC for her 21st Birthday. BG was suggested by a few people for Sunday Lunch or Afternoon Tea. I booked the Afternoon Tea (through opentable) to follow a Sunday lunchtime tour of central park weeks in advance as I'd been... More

A beautiful lunch starting with lobster Mac & cheese followed by shrimp salad, my daughter had the lobster ravioli very unconventional looking! Accompanied with an amazing white wine! A must eatery if you are NYC !

No Saturday lunches. Afternoon late lunch or drinks much better. Food is just o.k. Very pricey. Sometimes too busy. Servers ok. Some good some rude.

Traveled to NYC with my mom and daughter. A friend who lives in Manhattan recommended BG Cafe. We made a reservation for High Tea. The view of Central Park was beautiful. The service, atmosphere and food quality superb. Definitely a highlight of our NYC trips.

On my previous visit to NYC I made a reservation to dine at this restaurant. When I arrived I told the host that I was from out of town and not familiar with the cuisine. He sat me in one of the two tables that had high backed chairs with a wonderful view overlooking Grand Army plaza. For lunch I... More

The Crab sandwich was THE BEST I have ever had. It is done right, fresh and so much crab. I would have just done lunch here every day had I known that this place was this good. I had tuna there and several other places in NY while I was there, and this place had the best seasoned fresh clean... More
