Harborside was amazing! Adriel really worked closely with us to make sure all details were in place. The food was great. The staff was attentive. I can't thank them enough for making our wedding so beautiful and perfect.

Exceptional Venue. Both the outside space and the indoor space is phenomenal. Nothing like you will ever find in NYC area. Outdoors has the most fanastic views of downtown Manhattan while the actual atrium venue transforms into the most fascinating space you will ever find.
Adriel Bastos is the best when it comes to day of the wedding coordination. The staff is extremely professional, knows what they are doing and will go above and beyond to make your wedding day fantastic. From the first day on Adriel offered us a variety of choices for the set up, decor, including linens, tables, color of chairs etc etc...they can create anything you like! Everyone loved the venue on my wedding and I have people commenting on the awesome space and set up to this day. If you are looking for something different, beautiful and elegant - this is the venue for you. This is definitely not for people who are looking for a traditional catering hall. This place is truly incredible and the staff will make you experience it to its full potential.

We recommend Harborside Creative Catering with the highest of praise. Every single aspect of our wedding day was thoughtfully and beautifully attended to, and the process of planning the event was seamless, easy, and enjoyable. Our wedding was given full care and attention by the staff at Harborside, and the food was delicious and elegantly served. Last but not least, the venue is spectacular and very special. Anyone interested in a NYC-area wedding would be lucky to book Harborside Creative Catering!

4.9/5.0
Quality of Service 4.9 is a painful rating because it was just a pleasure dealing with Adriel but I don't know where else to note this minor little complaint. The only reason why I did not give the full 5 stars is because I'm vegan and when meeting with the chef, I specifically said I don't want my vegan meal to be pasta (which it wasn't) or to just be a block of tofu on rice (which it was). On that note, the flavors of the food was amazing! All of our guests, vegans, non-vegans, guests from out of the country, even guests with extreme peanut allergies, raved about the food. Adriel even went above and beyond with having some waitstaff speak portuguese, having Caipirinha as a ready cocktail (Brasilian favorite) and having Guarana (Brasilian soda). Everyone (including me and my husband) were wowed by the decor and lighting from the moment we walked into the Atrium. My husband and I live in Chicago so we put a lot of trust in Adriel and I'm glad we did. He was quick to respond to our emails, set up appointments like taste testings, he even helped with our flower arrangements!!!! A-MAZING! I am already thinking of another possible event just so I can have something at the Atrium with HCC. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

Harborside provided my husband and I with the most magical wedding experience. The venue was spectacular with its panaramic views of lower Manhattan, and with the spacious and unique indoor area. Adriel Bastos was nothing short of fabulous. He accomodated us throughout the process, and simplified even the most complicated of issues. I would endorse Harborside to any person who is planning an event.

Our wedding at Harboside was everything we wanted plus more. Adriel did a phenomenal job. He was on top of everything the whole night and made sure it all went smoothly. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was superb. On top of all of this, the venue itself, not to mention the gorgeous backdrop, is stunning. I loved our wedding and would not have changed a thing. If I could, I would do it all over again =) This is not your typical, tacky catering hall. It is a unique location with gourmet food. I highly recommend Harborside!

HCC was just beginning to handle weddings when we signed on 18 months ago, and there were some changes that happened within the company along the way-for the better. Initially, we found those representing HCC smug and condescending. Really, if you are shopping for a venue with a view, there are many options along the Hudson, so "trust me" isn't really getting far with us. It wasn't until Adriel came on that things turned around for us. We were always content with the venue and the food, but Adriel really provided the level of service we were looking for. I wish we had dealt with him in the beginning. He has a lot of creative ideas and seems to truly enjoy planning events. I was a pretty annoying bride. I'd ask questions months before the wedding that only needed an answer two weeks before. Adriel was amused, but patient and helpful. And, the event was magnificent. HCC went above and beyond continuously throughout the event from finding a way to get our table signs to stand up to the bartenders deciding on their own to make signature cocktails in line with our cake theme. Guests are still raving about the food. At the tasting, HCC chefs were open to critiques and made adjustments based on our taste. As the bride and groom, we had one "server" assigned to us for the night, and he was ridiculous. Our glasses were never empty, and he would follow us around (even to the dance floor) with a plate of food to ensure we ate. We decided on a cocktail-style reception, and there was never a line for food or drinks with 200 guests, which most places in the area can't hold. The bartenders were friendly, helpful and always tried to be inventive when pouring a drink. The space screamed elegance even though it's an atrium mall and financial center by day. If you are looking for an eclectic venue that knows how to plan events, you found it. If you're looking for a beige ballroom with a chandelier and a surf & turf main course - continue your search. This is NOT the venue for you.
