The most beautiful space I have ever seen. John, who first toured the space with us, was attentive, responsive, and did not leave a single stone unturned when discussing what our wedding would include. Holly, the event coordinator, was responsive, so very professional, and supportive when it came to even the most mundane of questions that we had. She thought of everything, and when I sent her a list of what I wanted done with all of the elements that I'd planned, she did exactly what I asked, and intuitively did things that I did not even know to ask for. It was as if she understood the details that I envisioned in my dreams, and made them a reality. On the actual night of our wedding, Sandra, the Bridal Attendant, made me question whether or not I should ditch my plans to marry my groom, and marry HER instead! She was two steps ahead of me at all times, making sure that everything I needed was provided before I even asked, and that the magic I'd planned for all along would be the reality of the night. Joseph, the maitre'd was spectacular. My husband believes that Joseph is the reason our guests are describing our wedding as "absolutely perfect." He made sure every single move of the night was perfectly coordinated on the part of the staff at Guastavino's. Our timeline was orchestrated like that of a marching band; every member of the team at Guastavino's had a specific role or job there, and when they all worked together, what was produced can only be described as absolute magic.

We had an amazing wedding at Guastavino's. We really wanted a cool event space with a great NY feel and Guastavino's was the perfect fit. We planned our wedding pretty quickly (less than 4 months) but the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff helped make our event seem like it was in the works for years.

The actual event was so seamless, I didn't need to worry about a thing. There was no need for an outside day-of coordinator - the event planner (Holly) helped me through everything. During the event, if I even looked up in a quizzical manner either Andrea (my appointed bridal attendant) or Joseph (the maitre'd) were at my side to see if I needed anything.

We got so many gushing compliments from our guests (many of whom have been to many NYC weddings to compare it to) on how beautiful the space was, how abundant and delicious the food was, and just how well run the event was.

From the site visit with Joseph Gabis, to the tasting with Holly, our event planner and Joseph, our Maître d'hôtel, my husband and I were treated like one of the family at Guastavino's. They made planning our wedding reception a true joy. They were flexible with our changes and requests and truly cared that the event was a success. As an event planner, who invited her bosses as well as at least 6 other event planners to the event, I was beyond impressed with the execution of the day. It was flawless, and I never say that. I am recommending every bride come check out the space, which is breathtaking on its own, but when you add in the amazing people you'll work with, it makes the whole experience. I cannot wait to do more events there on a professional level!

Gustavinos did above and beyond! I had a personal attendant who was the best thing a bride could ask for!!! The food and service was absolutely amazing! The servers all seemed so happy and excited and attentive. They really looked out for all of the needs of myself and my guests.
If you want a classy NYC wedding this is the place!
One downfall is you must used BMl blackbird for lighting and sound and they charge a fortune to turn on a light switch and its just something you can not get around, you need lights!!!

We absolutely loved Guastavino's. John and Holly went out of their way to work with us to make our wedding about us. They were flexible and allowed us to personalize our event. The space and location are tremendous (read any review). The food was the best surprise...the cocktail hour was an A+, the desserts and apps were as good as during the tasting! And everyone has been commenting about how great the filet mignon was (no rubber chicken at this venue). Strong recommendation!!!!!

We were extremely pleased with our wedding at Guastavino's. The food was excellent and the venue really went above and beyond for us.

The bridal room was a perfect little lounge to hang out in well we got ready for the festivities. I also liked how the bridal suite is sort of hidden with all those mirrored doors so guests did not find themselves there. The luncheon was comprised of little sandwiches, fruit, and cookies accompanied by soft drinks and tea. Robin, the bridal attendant, was awesome! Without my request, I saw her aligning our escort cards, offering to steam not just the bridesmaid dresses but some of the groomsmen who had some jacket wrinkes... throughout the wedding, she always appeared next to us with a tray of water (or alcoholic beverage) or a reminder that our meal was hot. We did eat at our wedding!

We enjoyed the tasting (and being able to bring two friends) and while it was hard to make the selections, we were very happy with our choices: risotto, tenderloin, and the choc molton cake. We opted not to have a cake (as I find the cutting to be a bit cheesy) and had passed choc covered strawberries instead. The appetizers and 3 food stations during cocktail hour were great; I especially liked the lamb chops (who doesn't like lamb!), grilled cheese, and tuna tartare.

The space is beautiful and unique. The tennis bubble outside of the window didn't bother us at all though we could see it at our altar. The light/sound guys did a good job (exclusivity). The staff quickly transformed the ceremony room into the reception room during cocktail hour downstairs. The dance floor was the perfect size and the venue worked well with all our vendors.

We really had a blast at our wedding and loved Guastavino's so much we're trying to think of what else we can do there (corporate event, 10 year anniversary dinner, etc?).
