Sunset Terrace turned out to be the perfect place for our wedding: the view of the river was gorgeous and nature obliged us with a wonderful sunset during our reception. Jennifer Walsh helped with everything, including making sure that we did not start the ceremony before a key guest, who needed handicapped access, was able to arrive. The staff was responsive to our needs and professional.

The catering by Witch Craft was excellent and the bar service, too. For Manhattan, the price was astonishingly reasonable and if you have out of town guests, it has a rare amenity: parking. And you'd never know once you get into the terraced room that there is a hockey rink behind it!

Chelsea Piers provided us with the most amazing experience for our wedding. From the time we first contacted them to inquire about having our wedding there to the follow up after the wedding. They were extremely responsive, organized, flexible and professional, as well as being so pleasant to work with. The space itself is beautiful, with amazing views of the Hudson all the way down to the Statue of Liberty on clear days. The food was provided by Jason's Catering and was also amazing, and all of our guests commented on how good it was. All of the staff helped everything run smoothly and the entire day seemed effortless. A special thanks to our coordinator, Sherwin, who kept the night organized, ensured that we were completely taken care of and made everything run perfectly. It truly felt as though we had our own wedding planner for the day and allowed us to relax and even eat! Our guests have continued to comment and how wonderful the space, staff and food all were and were amazed that this place exists in New York. I would definitely recommend this venue to everyone!

My husband and I chose SunsetTerrace as the venue for our wedding reception and could not have been more pleased. Eliese is amazing and you can tell she actually cares about the couple, not just the bottom line. The view is perfect, the food outstanding, and the service is out of this world. We have no regrets and are still getting compliments on how much fun everyone had! If the skating rink is causing you to have doubts, just put that out of your head! Once you're inside the rest of the world melts away and it's perfect, promise :)

My husband and I were married at Sunset Terrace on December 29, 2013, and were so happy we chose it as our venue! We felt comforted in knowing that everything was taken care of along the way, and we were so impressed with everyone's care and attention to detail to make the big day come together. Sherwin Johnson made sure everything went smoothly and that everyone was happy, so all we were left to do was enjoy each moment!

About the venue - This venue was the perfect setting for our wedding on 9/28/2013, reception only. This venue fit our needs because the catering was an affordable price per person, we were allowed to bring in food from outside vendors without cost, and the view spoke for itself. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and had all the doors open all night long

About the food - Jason's Catering - I worked with Diane and we did a tasting and friends have told me to not expect the same at the wedding since it'll be mass produced... NOT TRUE! All our guests raved about the cocktail hour and the entrees served. We did buffet style with a carving station because there are guests who want more than one serving and others who only want 1/2 a serving. Though it takes some time to get through the lines, in terms of meal satisfaction I think this worked the best. The mini grilled cheese and sliders were amazing. During dinner everyone LOVED the seared sesame seed crusted tuna and the BBQ steak. We had other desserts brought in from other vendors and coordinating with Sherwin and Diane was seamless. Make sure you run through everything with them ahead of time - we all wanted to make sure it wasn't going to impact other preparations for the night.

About the service - Sherwin and Jennifer were very attentive and practical with their advice and I 100% appreciated it since I was keeping to a budget and not having hired a wedding consultant or coordinator, it's good to have professionals keep you accountable for your decisions. My wedding cake never arrived - LONG story - but Sherwin was very professional handling the situation. Though he offered to have one of his guys find another, we decided we had enough desserts being brought in that it would be fine without.

PROS - beautiful view, catering and service were great, coordinators excellent to work with, affordable
CONS - entrance to venue, lights don't dim above dance floor (on/off)

Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers was the perfect venue for our reception. Right on the water with amazing sunset views and an outdoor terrace. The space was just right for our reception of 75 guests.

The food provided by Jason's Catering was top notch. Our guests said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. This included entrees like filet mignon and lobster, as well as a separate carving station for stuffed pork loin. They also provided a huge assortment of desserts and pastries. The catering staff was very attentive and friendly.

Special thanks to Chloe Labiner and Jennifer Walsh, who helped plan and organize the event. They took care of everything, including working with our vendors to coordinate the big day. We did not have to worry about anything during the reception. We were able to relax and enjoy the evening with our guests.

Final shout out to Frankie, the operations manager of Sunset Terrace. It is rare to find someone who cares so much about his work, but Frankie is one of those people. You can see how much pride he has for Sunset Terrace in everything he does.

We loved everything about our reception and recommend Sunset Terrace and their staff to anyone looking for a beautiful, waterfront reception.

I just had my wedding here on 6/8/13 and could not have been happier with my choice of venue. I first heard about Sunset Terrace from New York Magazine's website, which listed it as a recommended affordable venue in NYC. It ended up being a great choice especially for my husband and me, as we are a young couple and not loaded with money.

The whole thing was perfect we were extremely pleased. Sherwin was a true pleasure to work with - he is so personable and willing to do whatever you need. To give a specific example: he took care of setting up everything for me. He was willing to store stuff for me the day before - and he was very flexible with all my needs: from flowers, to vendors, to drinks, etc. He was very responsive to all my emails. We didn't really need to start talking much until a few weeks before the actual date, but throughout the months, he stayed in touch and even sent us a Christmas card!

His team is awesome - I even got to know one of his wait staff, Frankie - really fun guy. The "Southern Gentleman" is delish!

The food was great - I thought so personally and we received many compliements from our guests as well. On the day of, Sherwin seriously made sure every guest was attended to - I heard this from my friends! He made sure my husband and I got to eat (which is rare for most couples on their wedding day!).

The venue itself is beautiful too. We were blessed with the perfect weather and got to have all the garage doors open. My husband and I danced on the terrace! The sunset was beautiful, the cool breeze was great - I am just so so happy we picked this place!

We needed to find a venue for our wedding and reception on an expedited basis during the frenzy the Christmas holidays. We had a very tight deadline of 3 weeks and were understandably concerned. However, after meeting with Event Coordinator Sherwin Johnson, we were convinced that the Sunset Terrace was the perfect spot for us. The venue was absolutely beautiful and offered a great deal of flexibility. Sherwin was instrumental in the planning process, and accomodated every request, despite the tight deadline. The final product was a fairytale wedding that looked like it took months to put together. All of our guests were blown away by the gorgeous venue and praised the quality/presentation of the food. Thank you to everyone at Chelsea Piers for exceeding our expectations and giving us the wedding of our dreams!
