I don't like the fact that you have to wait in a long line and then get herded in like cattle. The food was yummy! A bit pricey but good. The kids loved the experience.

What happened AG? My daughters and I have gone once a year for the last five or six years to the AG Store and Cafe in Manhattan as a kind of pilgrimage. Although the food has never been outstanding, it was always well prepared, of decent quality, and tasted good. Service has been impeccable (for a restaurant full of children)... More

I gave the kids a surprise trip to the American Girl Doll Store and we all had the time of our lives. The restaurant was quite the experience. The kids loved everything about it. From the table games to the special chairs that they seat the dolls in. What an experience! Inexpensive and well worth every penny and then some.... More

We arrived on a rainy day when it was difficult to get a cab and were 18 minutes late. They had given away our table and made no effort trying to find a solution. They did not even try to call my cell to check on our reservation. Our daughter was extremely disappointed!

We scheduled a late lunch (2:30) for our family of 5 (3 girls 7, 4, 2). We were on a Christmas trip to the city and this was one of the best things we did by far. Price- Pretty affordable especially for Manhattan (around $22 per person). A helpful tip price wise is that we only had to pay for... More

It was a good effort for their limited dinner menu. After all it is a doll store. I had the pan seared salmon which was a little over cooked. While others enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. The staff were attentive to the kids who had a great time. Great place for a girls birthday of 5 to about 9.

Decided to come and enjoy lunch to celebrate daughters 6th birthday. The cafe was just perfect. She loved that here Rebecca could also get a 'high chair' at the table and enjoy lunch with her. Need reservations.

On our first night in NY visiting from the UK we headed to American Girl and our two girls picked out their new dolls. We then surprised them with a reservation at the cafe. The concept of the place is lovely and it is such an experience for children. It is nice to visit somewhere that is completely centred around... More

After Santa brought our child an American Girl doll, we took her and her dolly for dinner at the 5th Avenue, New York store's restaurant. With Xmas light shows outside and doll nirvana inside, it was an exciting outing for our daughter. We booked the dinner months in advance and were dubious - but it was a charming experience. There...

Each time our granddaughter who lives in Phoenix visits us we visit the American Girl Store and eat in the cafe. Again, we enjoyed our dining experience in the cafe. The food was tasty, the menu was varied, and the service was okay. We look forward to eating at the cafe when our granddaughter visits again.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
