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.

My 11-year-old daughter wrote this. Adorable seat for doll that attaches to the table. They let us keep a cute little teacup and saucer for doll and cute little elastic hair ties. The food was really delicious and the service was amazing. It was a fun place to have lunch with my family. Definitely one of the highlights on our... More

Beautiful place, my daughter was super excited, everything was beautiful, the table, the food, the service. They gave her a cup for the doll, the napkin holders was hair bands you can take home too. Food was in good portion ad taste. 20 dls per person, well worth it

This was an adorable adventure. Environment, staff and food were excellent. We went for brunch and loved the cinnamon buns that they started us off with. We were able to keep the cute hair ties that they used for the napkins. My daughter chose an American Girl to sit with (you could bring your own). The waiter was super friendly.... More

Great experience for my 6 year old. We did brunch and then shopped the store. It's a magical place with play vignettes worthy of Broadway sets. Super fun must go for girls.

This place is magical. Once you have purchased your doll, you visit the restaurant where they provide a little highchair for your American Girl! The meal is a set menu but the quality is good and well thought out. All refreshments (apart from alcohol) are included in the fixed price too. My daughter LOVED the shop and the restaurant and...

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.
