I have recently visited the Palm Court at the Park Plaza with family whilst on vacation in New York. In regards to the first impressions of the hotel, it was a magnificent building and was as grand as expected As part of our holiday we had prebooked the upgraded afternoon tea in the Palm Court. However this experience was below... More

We visited the Palm court during the winter restaurant week, where restaurants provide a fixed menu for $42 for dinner. Palm Court's menu consisted of a salad, a petite lobster roll, braised short-ribs with truffle grits, petits fours and 2 sample sized cocktails. This appears to be excellent value, given their cocktails run over $20 per cocktail. How could this... More

My sisters and parents and I chose to spend an afternoon of our trip to New York having afternoon tea at the Palm Court, and it did not disappoint. It was very posh, and had the prices to go with it, but we really enjoyed it. We aren't alcohol drinkers so we each got the "New Yorker" tea service, and... More

I was treated to High Tea at the Palm Court, Plaza. It was great! There was a great selection of sandwiches and desserts. I thought the Egg Salad Sandwich and the Salmon Sandwich were the best. There was a variety of desserts. I couldn't finish them all in one sitting, so I took a few back to the room to... More

We came to Palm Court for afternoon tea and could not fault the beautiful setting and atmosphere. The servers were delightful and very attentive. For the price, the food was a bit underwhelming but we enjoyed the overall experience.

Visited on Tuesday night in NYC. The male host showing us to our table was frosty and verging on uninterested. Our food was extremely underwhelming especially when you consider that the price for a main meal (without any side dishes) is around $30 (approx £25) The food was also luke warm. The chicken I chose tasted exactly the same as... More

Loved this short visit to a beautiful hotel. We had afternoon tea in The Palm Court. I thought our server's manners were a little rough around the edges for such an elegant venue, but the experience was still a very good one. Beautiful presentation, large variety of offerings on the tiered serving trays, and delicious delicacies. This was a bucket... More

The Plaza's Palm Court is a beautiful place---and the ideal setting for a lovely Sunday brunch. I had excellent service. The cost was $48 plus tax and tip---no required tip amount. There was a nice--not great---display of breakfast items. The items were not hot. I was very disappointed in this. All the items were nicely prepared---scrambled eggs (not hot), bacon,... More

Went there on a Sunday afternoon with my adult daughter. Tea was very nice with a glass of champagne, but it was 100.00. Nice selection of sandwiches, scones and pastry. Tables are very small and close together, really becomes a problem when trying to find a place for a winter coat. Asked but was told there was not a coat... More

Geoffrey Zakarian has re-launched the iconic Palm Court at The PLAZA HOTEL with a complete renovation helmed by Master Architect Thierry Despont. Zakarian showcases classic American menus from morning to evening, and while staying true to its original design intent, Despont has brought the grand feeling of Central Park indoors, with garden elements such as caning, large potted plants, four soaring palm trees and an oval trellised bar anchoring the room, creating an ambience that feels warm, private and glamorous. Bespoke furnishings provide a relaxed, yet elegant setting well-suited for either a professional breakfast meeting or an evening of cocktails crafted by mixologist Brian Van Flandern. Afternoon Tea truly shines as well with custom tableware and china, a tea list with worldly depth, and of course, a bit of Eloise too. This elegant room marked with its stained glass dome and impressive height adds a touch of old New York to a very polished and modern sense of hospitality

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.
