Review on American Girl Store & Bistro


On Sunday I planned a trip to American Girls Bistro for Sidneys 5th Birthday. I’m a party planner and I usually plan a big party for her but this year I wanted to be low-key with planning a party. So we invited her older sisters, their little sister & her god sister, we had a nice brunch and Sidney Picked out a baby doll.

(Sidney whole outfit is from Value Village & The Goodwill (thrift store), the leopard vest, pink top, & GAP Jeans ,I cut them up to turn them into boyfriend jeans).

Sidney and her guest were very impressed with the whole layout of American Girl and the Bistro. Soon as we walked in Sidney wanted every single doll she laid her eyes on. The bigger dolls start at $110.00 and the baby dolls start at $55.00, after that you can add-on packages and accessories . You also can buy matching clothes for the doll and your little girl, it can get a little pricey so make sure you bring your credit card.

American Girl includes:

  • Bistro (Dining)
  • Doll Hair Salon
  • Private Birthday Packages

Lunch was $15.00 per person and for 4 years and under $7.50 per person, I like that you had an option of one appetizer and then your main course plus a drink. The food was pretty good but I kinda got full on the appetizer (sweet potatoes fries), so I took a goody bag home filled with grilled salmon.

Pros:

Very pretty inside and very girly

We were seated on time & promptly

Staff was very friendly & helpful

Food was tasty

The doll bodies are realistic & cute

Each doll comes with a story book

Cons:

The store area was very busy (lots of people)

Dolls are very pricey $110.00

The matching outfit to look like your doll is $48.00

Real expensive furniture (bath tub, couch, chair), I saw a car for $300.00

We would definitely come back on special occasions or maybe every 6 months, due to the dolls being on the higher side. I would recommend American Girl to any one that has a little girl who is girly and in to dolls. There were so many girls shopping for new clothes for their dolls, some girls had 2 or 3 they already owned (it was very cute). I forgot to add when you sit down to eat they ask you how many dolls you have because your doll or baby get a high chair and mini place set also (too cute)!

Above is the baby doll Sidney decided on, she named her Jordan (funny thing is her brother’s name is Jordan (LOL)!

  1. Looks like a lot of fun for everyone! I’ve never been to an American Girl Bistro, so now, I’ll have to do a search for one near me. Did you get come ideas for your party event business from the Bistro?

    1. I have a friend that takes her daughter every year, I had not heard of American girl either. I did get an idea to have a party for my daughter and all the girls bring their favorite doll to the party and have a sleep over & spa party.. šŸ˜‰

  2. I am so glad you wrote your review! I just met someone who worked for American Girl during Christmas. Her job was to pierce dolls ears! šŸ™‚ Said the company is a very nice place to work….which makes their products even nicer to me.

    Sounds like the Bistro was a hit!
