We recently got married at Battery Gardens and our experience was amazing! Michele Cavarello was outstanding! Michele was extremely responsive and answered all of my questions and was so thorough and flexible throughout the entire planning process. I can't say enough positive things about her. The venue was just stunning - I highly recommend Battery Gardens to anyone. The food was delicious which is hard to achieve for large catered groups and we received so many compliments on how delicious everything was! The cocktail hour outside was perfect and all of the staff was kind and attentive throughout the entire wedding. We received so much positive feedback on the wedding -- if you are looking at venues in NYC - I would look no further and book here! Don't hesitate!

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!!!

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!!

Everything was perfect at Battery Gardens. The location, view and food were outstanding and our guests were blown away by the beauty of the wedding. I know people like to be nice when it’s your wedding but many guests came told me (unsolicited) it was the most beautiful, special wedding they’ve ever been to. The food was superb and far beyond the quality of most catered events. The entire team at Battery Gardens are experts in what they do and made this part of our wedding planning the easiest and most stress free. Mostly, I would like to commend Michele. From our first meeting to the our wedding day, Michele was always responsive, professional, flexible and provided great suggestions when needed. She was always calm and positive and I will miss not working with her! If you are someone who is used to relying on competent people to think of every detail before you do, then you will be happy with Battery Gardens. Lastly, where else can you have a classic NYC wedding with the most amazing view, food and ambiance and not have to mortgage your house to pay for it or stick everyone on a boat for four hours. Battery Gardens is the place!

We could not have been happier with the venue, between the professionalism, food and location it is the perfect place to have a New York City wedding. Working with Alex throughout the entire process, he was knowledgeable and accommodating. Our wedding was a dream come true and we can't thank everyone at Battery Gardens enough!

If you are looking for a unique and wonderful wedding venue in NYC, look no further! (Seriously, stop Googling now.)

On a whim decided to stop in one afternoon when we were in the area. We had no appointment but Michele immediately came to show us around. She spent a lot of time with us and was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The venue is beautiful - clean white decor on the lower level, a beautiful patio with an amazing tree overlooking the harbor and Statue of Liberty (where we had our ceremony), and an open airy room upstairs with windows overlooking the same view (where we had the reception). We really felt like we got a HUGE value for what we paid per person.

The great thing is that it's a restaurant - tables, linens, plates, etc are all taken care of. And the food is amazing and there's plenty of it! Our guests were stuffed and commented on how tasty everything was.

And then there's Michele... She is simply the best! Friendly and fun, but a true professional she made our whole planning experience easy. If you have a question, she has an answer (and a suggestion, and another idea, etc). No need to hire a wedding planner either. Michele will be in charge of everything the day of! The evening ran so smoothly and she made sure everyone was always on the same page. But most of all, she made us feel special and important and completely taken care of. I know she has a ton of other weddings to attend to but she never made us feel like we were bothering her or that she was too busy.

This venue is a hidden gem in NYC.
