We had a lovely daytime wedding on September 25, 2016 at Battery Gardens, with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception in their harbor view room. Battery Gardens is the most ideal venue a bride can ask for. Especially for our situation, many of our guests are coming from out of town or even oversea, so it is so great to have a venue with the view of statue of liberty! The staff are so great. Our catering manager was Anna. And our Maître D' for the day was Eddie. Both of them are very professional. Anna worked with us patiently through out our wedding planning process. She accommodated all of our requests and some last minute guest count change. On our wedding day, Anna led us through every single step, calmed us down and created a perfectly smooth timeline. Eddie and his crew helped us pack everything up after the wedding, which was a life saver! Iced water with lemons was served to our guests while they were waiting for the ceremony to start. The food was great. The open bar was awesome. They even put food in the Bridal Suite because obviously I did not have time to eat during the reception. We couldn't ask for more! Thank you, Battery Gardens, so much, for a perfect wedding day!

I usually never write reviews (I actually think this may be first my one haha), but words cannot express how amazing Battery Gardens is. I was originally planning to have my wedding in Boston (where I am from), but the minute I walked into Battery Gardens I knew I had to having my wedding there. I cannot imagine having had my wedding anywhere else. Everything from the views to the food to the service to the price is just exceptional. I could not believe the price we got for our October wedding in NYC. Apparently the price was an even better since we booked the date less than a year in advance (10 months in advance). Even if the weather is not ideal (our day was a little drizzly and overcast) the views will not disappoint. EVERYONE was commenting on how beautiful it was. Michele Cavallero, our catering manager, was absolutely amazing. She really knows what she is doing and does her job well! She had such amazing suggestions and always made sure to help me stay within my budget. The open bar was just amazing, Michele even made sure to add Jameson into the mix even though it is not usually included on their menu. My husband wanted to make sure we had a venue where shots were allowed and they had no problem with this at all! The servers were just exceptional. Our maitre d Eddie was also fabulous. The filet was honestly one of the best pieces of meat I have ever had in my life and the Chilean Sea bass was one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had in my life (non-seafood eaters even commented on how good it was!) Also - definitely use Battery Garden's florist Javier Demera (owner of Jolie events). He went above and beyond my expectations for my bouquets. The place look absolutely gorgeous with our lantern centerpieces and he helped me to stay within my budget. A ton of my friends were taking pictures and commenting on how gorgeous the room looked all lit up. Just have your wedding at Battery Gardens, you will not regret it!!!

Battery Gardens was the perfect wedding venue for us. I never thought I would be able to afford and plan my dream wedding and Anna at Battery Gardens made it all a reality. They were accommodating, supportive, flexible and overall a pleasure to work with. They always took their service to the next level and never hesitated to give a helping hand. I would highly recommend Battery Gardens to all couples planning a wedding. They will make sure your day is stress-free, well organized, and overall fun!

We had an incredible experience at Battery Gardens working with Anna Morale for our wedding on December 17, 2017. She helped us fit everything into our budget and helped to plan every detail along the way - overall she made the process seamless. The venue is gorgeous and the food turned out to be fantastic. I couldn't recommend this location more for a dream wedding in downtown NYC. You won't find better views anywhere.

After looking at tons of venues outside of the city, I was suggested by a coworker to check out Battery Gardens. My husband and I live in Manhattan, so we know how expensive things can be, and even looking at venues that were along the hudson and east rivers, we thought it would be out of our budget. But we decided to take a look anyways and totally fell in love with it and decided that day to book the venue! We were married there August 20th, 2016.

Since we chose August as our wedding month, this is I guess technically "out of season" for them and is a bit cheaper than June or September, which was a major plus! We met and worked with Michele, who is literally a god send. She was SO helpful throughout our entire planning process. If she ever wants to open her own wedding planning service, she'd rock at it. She dealt with all of our issues or questions with ease and was super responsive. We were having problems with a hotel that we were trying to book a room block at that was suggested by Battery Gardens and after no response from this hotel for nearly two weeks, she called them up and we were contacted the next day. Magic!

Our wedding day was so beautiful and really went off without a hitch! The team at Battery Gardens really attended to our every need and all of our guests needs. They set up the ceremony, cocktail room and reception room so beautifully. The only thing we did hear from guests after the ceremony ended--which was outside in Battery Park next to the restaurant--was that tourists who watched the ceremony started to steal the flowers after the ceremony ended!! I guess they really were going to end up in the trash either way, but I wished that someone was there to stop them from taking the flowers.
But aside from that, everything was amazing and so so perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better day at a better venue. Not to mention, the views of the NY harbor and statue of liberty are phenomenal! THANK YOU THANK YOU MICHELE!

So thrilled with the wedding venue! Food was really delicious. The Chilan Bass was incredible! The fillet mignon fabulous! The venue was just perfect for the outdoor ceremony ! Michelle is just the best coordinator in New York. No stone was left unturned. The table settings and the staff was better than i ever expected. They were just great! The maitre'd was so helpful and prepared all that I asked for and More! Thank you for an unforgettable wedding. Talk around town called it the event of the year! We could'nt of asked for a better party! With the sun shining on the water the pictures we took were exquisite. I wish we could share them with everyone! As the rabbi pronounced the bride and groom wedded,, a ship came behind them and set up a stunning photograph to remember forever!

We had a beyond fantastic experience with Battery Gardens and Senior Catering Manager, Michele Cavallero in planning our wedding on July 1. Guests have not stopped raving about how good the food was, how gorgeous the venue was, and how stunning the views were! (Lady Liberty and the Hudson on one side, the urban financial district and 1 World Trade on the other)! We loved the ability to be both indoors and outdoors. Cocktail hour was both indoors and outdoors on a fabulous patio with food and drinks easily accessible (and plentiful). During the reception, guests could take advantage of the two large balconies upstairs to take in the spectacular views outdoors.

Throughout 10 months of planning, Michele was informative, responsive and flexible to all of our questions and requests. We did not have a professional planner so Michele's insights were invaluable; Responses to most requests were met with a "no problem" or "I'll take care of it". For example, Michele let us switch out the standard package beer with craft beer from the venue's beer garden.

Michele worked with us on event timing from when the party first arrived through to midnight. She and her A team including Maitre'D, Eddie were instrumental in setting up our non-florist stuff (placecards, deco etc) and made sure everything went according to plan, and directing the wedding party and guests. One of the A team went above and beyond, and ran out into the street to hail and bring a cab into the venue to pickup my dad close to the entrance (dad had hurt his knee and had trouble walking).

Lastly, use the house florist, Javier Demera, owner of Jolie Events - his work is stunning and I cannot say enough good things! Despite my small budget, Javier was willing to work with me on the look using his far superior knowledge of the space, letting me know what I could and could not have based on what I wanted and my budget. Truly, the results of Javier's work was just beyond gorgeous.

I worked with Michele for my wedding and had a wonderful experience. She was extremely responsive with every question i had and made the process so easy for me. We had to drop off our stuff the day before the wedding but was running late to pick up family from the airport so quickly gave it to michele with a quick inventory count and she remembered exactly where everything (signs, menu, guests books, flowers etc) had to go. We were lucky enough to have good weather the day of our wedding and so many of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. The venue overlooks the water with statue of liberty in the background in the middle of battery park. The staff were all very friendly and sooo many compliments on the food. Good food was always important to me so this was a big deal. You get 8 passed hours devours, 4 stations and 4 course meal. Everyone was stuffed at the end. I highly recommend the asian station, the peking duck wrap was phenomenal! Battery gardens definitely made my wedding day the most unforgettable day of my life. I would highly recommend to any bride wanting to get married in new york.
