I love love love this restaurant. It is classy, extremely elegant, and very New York. There's a bit of an old New York vibe throughout the whole restaurant, and the downstairs where we had our ceremony and reception is such a gem of a place tucked away in Tribeca. It has a classy, speakeasy sort of vibe to it and the ceiling is actually the original granite sidewalk. The service is top notch, everyone is absolutely professional and easy to work with, and the food is stellar. I have heard of this place before my husband and i chose it as our wedding venue because of their food (in particular their burgers is one of the top in New York), and they did not disappoint. From the cocktail hour to every single course, people were so stoked about the food, including the dessert! They are incredibly accommodating to your needs and any changes that are always taking place either it be guest count, etc. They are just easy, laid back, yet extremely professional. For a 50-person, small, intimate, and classy wedding, this place is perfect.

City Hall Restaurant is an amazing place. We had Keith looking after, and assisting, us. We were also planning this from overseas and right before Christmas, yet Keith was quick in responding to our emails.

We had our wedding ceremony in the Granite Room, a beautiful room set with lots of candles and low lighting, that made our lunch time wedding feel like a magical evening. The food is amazing and a big thank you to Bridget for her excellent service.

We would like to thank Keith, Bridget and their colleagues for their part in creating a very magical day that will be remembered, and would highly recommend City Hall Restaurant to anyone.

My Wife and I just had our Wedding Ceremony and reception at City Hall Restaurant in the rose room and granite room downstairs.

It was wonderful. Tons of candles and the food was amazing, staff was so professional and helpful every step of the way. Bridget was like a goddess helping our day move smoothly and timely. She even ran over to help wipe off white wine that was accidentally spilled on the front of my dress right before the ceremony! She was a lifesaver and awesome person.
Richard rocks! He was taking over for Amira who had left a few weeks before our wedding who was the event planner. As any bride would feel, when something like this happens could be a bad thing.
Richard has been there for many years and he was so awesome to work with. Calm cool and collected he got us everything we needed and made the transition amazing.
I can't remember the new guy who now is their current event planner but we had just met him the day of our wedding and he was wonderful. Had everything running smooth and nice and catered to our every request.

Our biggest comment on our wedding we got from most of our guests were, A very classy, Elegant wedding with amazing food, lighting and vibe and a friendly staff.

THANK YOU ALL At city hall restaurant for making our wedding so amazing.
we had an amazing day we will never forget.

THANK YOU!

Do yourself a favor, Book it there. why be like everyone else and book a hall. This is NYC class.

I can't say enough good things about City Hall Restaurant. We dealt with Amira from start to finish and everything was executed beautifully. We really did not have a thing to worry about. They coordinated with all the vendors and the evening progressed flawlessly. The food was sublime, and all of our guests agreed! I'm still getting comments from people regarding how delicious everything was. Our ceremony and reception were both in the Granite Room, while cocktail hour was upstairs in the lounge. We also had the Rose Room to ourselves to use as sort of a base of operations prior to the ceremony and such. The restaurant is absolutely stunning and all of our guests were constantly commenting (and still are) about how lovely and unique the venue was. They are also very competitively priced for New York.

As I understand it, Amira is no longer there, but let it be said that she was fantastic to work with. She was always super responsive to any calls or emails and answered any questions readily and happily. She was truly fantastic to work with and put my mind at ease. We had a wonderful wedding and would not have changed a thing.

If you're planning a wedding in Manhattan for 100 people or less, do yourself a favor and check these guys out.

My husband and I had our ceremony & reception for 66 people in the Granite Room at City Hall Restaurant. We could not be happier with the service, food, or space.

Amira was a joy to work with and answered our every nit-picky question during the planning process. All of our guests raved about the food, ambiance and service, and the staff were super-accommodating to our less-mobile guests.

This venue was also an excellent value and had extremely flexible menu options. I can't imagine anything they could do to improve the experience we had.

I had a WONDERFUL reception in the Granite Room of City Hall for about 70 people. We hosted a lunch reception. It was affordable and beautiful. Everyone was so impressed with the food and the look of the place. What I loved: the service from the wait staff on the day of; the food; the drinks and wine were flowing; they provide candles and table numbers so i did not have to think beyond flowers for decoration, plus the room in and of itself is so gorgeous, it does not need much; if no one has it booked on the day of, the Rose Room is yours to use as a holding room until you are announced (or to change if you plan to, etc.); the red velvet cake -- so delicious; that they have a dedicated kitchen for catering events, so everything is fresh, hot and prompt.

What I didn't love: the private dining director, Amira Gertz. She is not the best communicator, so to avoid any mishaps or confusion I would clarify and double check everything and keep email records because she will play dumb or not admit to errors. There were a lot of little things that she said could or would be done in the beginning of the planning process, before we made a deposit, that were later chalked up to a misunderstanding on our part, so, again, be clear and direct with her. oh! and in all of your excitement on the day of, please remember to examine the bill before you sign -- this is how i ended up paying for a wedding cake that should have been included in the per person fee. She also did not honor my wishes of shutting down the open bar after the cocktail hour. It ended up not being a big deal, but I did wonder why people were still ordering shots and cocktails at 4 p.m.!

That being said, my experience with her did not outweigh the amazing service of the wait staff there or the incredible value City Hall offers. For NYers looking to have a real wedding with delicious food, great drinks and exceptional service on a shoestring (for NYC) budget, I highly recommend the lunch reception at this establishment.

Mu husband and I really enjoyed working with Robert Palermo from City Hall restaurant. the restaurant has two private rooms downstairs that really had the "classic New York" feel that we were going for -- including a grand piano—and the space easily accommodated our 90 guests. Robert was helpful, understanding, and always a professional. The food was excellent, and Robert even allowed us to extend the reception time for a small fee. Would recommend working with Robert and City Hall.
