Even though I am planning remotely from the west coast, and have yet to visit this venue, let me tell you it has been such a joy working with Michelle. This venue was last on my list (not sure why) and I thought I was out of options when emailing a ton of places for prices and pictures. Either the coordinator was unfriendly or the prices were out of this world. Then came Michelle, she was so on it! I believe I emailed her on a Friday and didn't expect an answer back until Monday but she promptly got back to me a couple hours later and again returned my emails on Saturday and Sunday. It didn't matter how many questions I had, she would reply back right away. I also want to rave about the prices, I'm having my wedding on a Friday and it was super reasonable. Michelle was even able to accommodate our budget! For a New York venue, you really can't beat Battery Gardens. I didn't even hestitate signing the contract and putting down a deposit!

Beautiful Location. Catering director Alex was an immense help in coordinating our wedding. He was able to accommodate many unique additions to our special day. Cannot stop raving about the food from friends and family. Alex made it very easy for all our vendors to setup properly and seamlessly. Classy and elegant atmosphere.

We had our wedding here on 10.25.14, and it was INCREDIBLE. We worked with Michele, who was absolutely amazing in all respects. She really worked with us in the menu and appetizer planning process, helping the venue make specialty appetizers (arancini and mac and cheese balls) that were delicious, and working with us on special little additions, like having a real fire going all night, that truly made the evening special.

I am an extreme type-A personality, and had a whole host of little details I really wanted to make sure were perfect. I told Michele about all of them, not once or twice, but easily dozens of times, and instead of ever being short with me (which would have been totally justified!), she was always patient and responsive.

In the days leading up to the wedding my husband and I had a million things we were doing, and Michele went above and beyond to let us drop off a lot of things 2 days early, practice our dance in the event space, and try the signature drinks for the millionth time. She also hand-placed the 150 or so pictures I framed around the venue, and made sure the look was just right. She worked with me throughout the night to make sure I was happy and satisfied, and worked with the florist and other vendors to ensure their set up and execution went smoothly.

EVERYONE I talked to said that the food was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately my husband and I were running around a lot and did not get to eat nearly as much as we'd hoped, but the guests (many of whom are extremely picky) were all so happy and satisfied! I loved everything about working with BG, and Michele in particular. I really felt like she cared about my husband and I, and about making our day special. Thank you so so much!!!

Our wedding at Battery Gardens was a dream come true. We chose this venue because of its beautiful location and warm, friendly, and extremely helpful staff. They all went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. Michele was a dream from the start. Planning a wedding is very stressful but Michele was always there to answer questions, give suggestions and remind me that everything would be fine. Her and her staff set up the room exactly how we wanted it to look and would not have done anything different. I will definitely be recommending Battery Gardens as a wedding venue to anyone looking to host a large party of any type!

My husband and I researched over twenty venues between Rhode Island, New York, and New Jersey. In the end, Battery Gardens had the perfect combination of everything we were looking for: a view on the water, accommodations for over 200 guests, flexibility, good food, and a nice ambiance.

I have only wonderful praises for Michele Cavallero, the senior catering sales manager there. She answered all of our questions in a timely manner. She provided us with whatever information we needed (maps for parking, layout for seating, menus and options, etc.)

Battery Gardens was also extremely flexible and let us provide our own personal touches whether it was bringing an outside food vendor or personalizing the menu. (They let us do fried chicken at the cocktail hour!!)

Pricing at BG is extremely competitive. Compared to almost every other venue we researched, their price could not be beat -- especially for a Saturday evening in Manhattan.

I had a lot of details and pieces we brought for our wedding. Michele was extremely professional in how she handled this and went through every single item I brought and made sure she knew what it was and how I wanted to use it. She wrote everything down and the day of - it was perfect. During the rehearsal she was amazing. She had everyone in order and really made sure we all knew what we were doing.

The space at BG is gorgeous. Unfortunately, it rained so we weren't able to use the park location (which I was really in love with.) But, the alternative of the upstairs space was not a bad back-up. The windows really offered a lovely view and it was well lit. People commented that the inside option was still pretty, but inside I'm still so sad we didn't get to have the view I dreamed of.

Michele and the team at Battery Gardens are incredibly courteous, friendly, and worked well with my other vendors and all our guests.

The food was delicious (although I didn't eat much); people are still commenting! We loved our wedding!!

My husband and I got married at Battery Gardens in November 2014. We worked with Alex throughout the wedding planning. We did most of the planning from long distance and he was very accommodating. He was able to customize our package to our requests. Their services include a maitre d'. Both he and Alex were invaluable during the day of the wedding to make sure things went smoothly.
The venue itself is beautiful any time of the year and is in a very accessible location.
The food was incredible and plentiful; the menu was customized to include options for vegetarians.
This venue had everything we wanted and we are so happy we got married here.

My Husband and I just got married at Battery Gardens Last Sunday October 19th and besides it being beautiful and everyone raving about how amazing the food is....it could not have gone smoother and without one mistake thanks to one coordinator MICHELE CAVALLERO.

Listen, I was an event coordinator at a luxury boutique hotel in Soho so i know first hand how annoying clients can get, including myself. but this beautiful, sweet, professional gem of a woman took care of us for about a year with all the planning as if this were her own wedding. Never skipping a beat, always thinking ahead, coordinating everything the day of, always with a smile in her voice, changing menus left and right like we were the only clients in the world.

We had food GALORE!! and a premium open bar for cheap! Im talking from baby lamb chops to fresh pappardelle with mushrooms and truffle to sliders and salmon and salads and desserts and wine and spirits (top shelf)...it was like we were in heaven!

IF YOU WANT THE WEDDING OF YOUR DREAMS FOR THE BEST PRICE ( Literally it was a steal...i don't no how they offer it for that cheap) AND THE MOST AMAZING TEAM IN NYC....CALL OR EMAIL BATTERY GARDENS AND ASK FOR MICHELE CAVALLERO!

We just got married at Battery Gardens and had our reception at Battery Gardens October 11th, and couldn't be more happy with our experience from the planning to the day of. We worked with Alex who was extremely responsive and informative. We live in the area and often stopped by when we had a questions, and he was always welcoming and made time for us. Eddy the maitre d was fabulous the day of as well, accomodating any last minute needs we had and overseeing that everything was set up just as we wanted it.

This venue is the best value, our guests commented on how they had never had such good quality filet and fish as a wedding entree (one even mentioned the filet was the best he'd ever had). The liquor selection was top shelf and the hors d'oeuvres were great quality and plentiful during cocktail hour. The view overlooking the harbor and Statue of LIberty can be seen from all parts upstairs and down from the venue - we exchanged vows while gazing out at the Statue of Liberty at sunset! The space is so beautiful that you hardly need to decorate it. All of our guests said it was a wedding they would never forget, if not the best wedding they had been to.

The staff was so professional and gave quality service to our guests and were always looking out for us and if we needed anything. They take such great care of you that there's no need for a wedding coordinator as they do it all. I can't say how pleased we were we had our wedding there.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Battery Gardens. We had such an amazing experience with Battery Gardens from start to finish. When we decided to have the wedding locally in NYC we expected to deal with a hefty price tag. We wanted to stay away from stuffy ballrooms with no windows and started looking at places with a view. For our approximate guest count of 100 we were priced out of most venues and were not thrilled with the places that we could afford. Battery Gardens was one of the last places we looked and we were blown away by the view, the beauty of the space, the professionalism of the catering managers, and the reasonable price (for Manhattan). After visiting it was an easy decision to have our wedding reception there. We worked with Adam for the majority of the planning process. Battery Gardens happily agreed to a personalized cocktail hour menu. Even the dinner food was fantastic (the beef medallions melt in your mouth) which is hard to find at a wedding venue. Adam was very kind, professional, organized, easy to reach, and checked in with us multiple times as the wedding got closer. He walked us through step by step during the planning process and made sure that he had all the information to make the evening run smoothly and according to our schedule. He worked seamlessly with the Maître D, our DJ and other vendors to coordinate the evening. On the day of the wedding the entire staff of Battery Gardens provided amazing service. They paid attention to every detail to make the space beautiful. Adam was on site as was Eddy the Maître D. Between the two of them they made sure we had whatever we needed. Everyone including the waiters, bartenders, and coat room attendant were so sweet and did an amazing job. My husband and I had a fantastic wedding day! It was the best night of our lives and we can’t thank the staff there enough for making our dream come true. If you are considering BG for a wedding venue you will not be disappointed!!

I recently had my wedding reception at Battery Gardens on 9/20/14. I cannot say thank you enough to Battery Gardens. The staff was amazing-the catering manager and maitre'd were very accommodating, nice, and made sure everything ran smoothly and our needs were met. The venue itself was a perfect set-up for our 140 person party size, with the votive candles lining the top of the room ledge helping to set the beautiful ambiance, to the water and Statue of Liberty views. Everyone raved about how delicious the food was and how nicely set up the venue was. The private room where the bride and groom and bridal party can be while cocktail hour goes on was nice. My only suggestion is to have a small locked location to store personal items like bags. Otherwise, I have absolutely no complaints. Everything was set up like we discussed beforehand, everything was returned to us that we requested (like our champagne flutes and cake cutter), and we did not need to worry about anything on our night.
