Perfect Wedding with a perfect view!
Joe and everyone at Giando on the Water were amazing and made my wedding as close to perfection as you could get. Unfortunately, it rained during my ceremony (the only day in October to rain), but we were set up under the tented area of the patio, so we could still be outdoors. There was so much going on that I got more overwhelmed than I thought I would, but Joe and everyone at Giando handled EVERYTHING, so my husband and I had no need to worry about anything!!! Also, all of my guests could not stop talking about how delicious the food from both cocktail hour (especially the suckling pig) and reception dinner were!!!! The wedding cake was also the best wedding cake I have ever had and the vanilla ice cream was the best ice cream I have ever had!!!!! Thank you soooooo much to Joe and his staff for making our special day perfect!!!!!!

Wouldn't bother booking this venue, unless your desperate. The outside venue was nice, also the views were awesome from the inside. The food sucked,and ice cold, the service sucked,the staff were awful. You were buried with tables , should of had round tables, not oblong. The M.C didn't. exist during the reception, as when the couple cut the cake, the place was quiet. The music and sound system was awful , interference a lot of the time. If you need a great wedding venue, look elsewhere.

We had our wedding on September 23 and we were truly pleased with everything. Almost everything we requested was met with a "yes". The day of the wedding, every guest told us about how fabulous the staff treated them, how delicious (and massive) the food was, and how it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Thank you to Diana, Anthony, John & staff of Giando on the Water for helping us make our wedding the best day of our lives.

We were originally sold on Giando on the Water by the incredible view of Manhattan, the capacity, and the relatively reasonable prices for Williamsburg. What took us by surprise is how great it was to work with Joe, how much our guests enjoyed the food, and how well the wedding-day staff performed. Even though the venue is on the traditional side, Joe and his crew were open and patient to making the wedding ‘our own’. We were able to customize our reception by bringing in a few outside vendors (including a pizza truck), and Joe was very flexible and willing to work with them. We would recommend, however, that Giando offer a way to taste some of the menu items they offer on the catering menu without the couple having to go to the restaurant and pay for a full meal. Ultimately, the view from Giando on a beautiful day blew away our guests and made for an amazing experience!

My Fiance and I are scheduled to have our wedding here in July 2016. The views are amazing. To date, John and Joe have been very helpful with the process and we are extremely excited about our big date. My only concern is that we will only have the bridal suite for 2 hours prior to the ceremony which will require the bridesmaids to prep in two places.

If you are thinking of having your wedding here, do it! You won't regret it! Me and my (then) fiancé had looked at a few places, and when we saw Giando on the water we fell in love !! It was the view, the professionalism and comfortability we had while talking with Joe. We worried if we were just paying for the view or was the food gonna wow us too ... And it did. We got married on 7/16 and people are still ranting and raving about every aspect of the wedding. The view is a no brainier, the food- tons of it - was all amazing! The staff went above and beyond from Carmen and Alex to each and every bartender and server. I would choose Giando a hundred times over again.

My fiancé and I met when I was living in California. We did long distance for a year and a half until I received an opportunity to move to New York. Fast forward a year and he asked me to be his wife. I had always envisioned a California wine country wedding, or renting out a mansion in Santa Barbara for my venue, however he somehow talked me into having it in NYC. I agreed, under one condition; if I am asking 100 people to fly from California to watch us get married- it had to be in a venue with an incredible view of New York City.... And... that was within our budget (which was under the average venue cost in NYC of $60k).

We saw a ton of places from the Jersey side, Brooklyn and all the way along Queens. Then came Giando's.

We met Joe, the manager of event planning at Giando's which sits right under the Williamsburg bridge. Panoramic views stretching from downtown all the way to midtown filled ever floor to ceiling window in this four story restaurant/hall. And Joe... Dressed to the "T" with freshly polished shoes, a perfectly pressed suit and a face that looked like it could have come out of an "Life Styles of the Italian Rich and Famous" magazine! Everything about Giando's was on point.

From the planning (I am a girl with a lot of questions- hence my 20 page review), to the follow up, the details and most importantly- the day of coordination. Carman was assigned to me as a bridal attendant for the day, and Alex assigned to Kevin.

They were literally like our personal assistants, they carried tissues, wiped out tears, calmed us down (well maybe just me - I was so nervous!), brought us food and never let our drinks get empty (like literally, if you took one sip it was refilled)!

Our guests raved about this place being the BEST venue, ridiculously amazing food (we opted for a HUGE cocktail hour), and most elegant wedding they've ever been to. And the pictures... Oh the pictures. You MUST see it to believe it, 5+ stars, they are amazing...

We had a our wedding at Giando and it was the best experience! Joe was very helpful and made sure that the planning went exactly how we requested. You have to be very detailed with what you want and not assume they will know, as every wedding is different. My guests were raving about the view and food. We are satisfied with the quality of service and the price (which honestly can not be found elsewhere in NYC).
I didn't give 5 star overall only because the only way they can be reached is via phone or in person; they are not in tuned with the email option. Also because we weren't allowed to have bubbles at the ceremony.
But overall the experience was great!

Joe Leone is awesome! He was very helpful and pleasure to work with. Our wedding was on Sept. 25th and guests are still talking about how amazing everything was. My bridal attendant Carmen was the best! We had 2 maitre d's, Alex and Victor; they made sure we were taken care of all night, they didn't miss a beat. My husband and I had the most amazing wedding that either of us could have ever imagined. We would highly recommend Giandos for any event.
