My fiancé and I were so lucky to find this absolutely stunning venue on Central Park South. If you want an elegant wedding in NYC, look no further than the Essex House.

One of the myriad great things about the Essex House is that it can accommodate an intimate wedding from 2-80 guests up to a 300 person wedding, and it is all done seamlessly. All of the rooms used for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, including the Grand Salon, the Petit Salon and the Art Deco room are drop dead gorgeous. Although everything is brand new due to a recent multi-million dollar renovation, all of the old New York historical charm is beautifully displayed.

The best thing about the Essex House is JASON KWINTNER, WEDDING PLANNER, CATERING MANAGER AND RENNAISANCE MAN EXTRAORDINAIRE. I would sing Jason's praises from a rooftop if I could, that is how amazing this guy this. From the second we walked through the Essex House doors on our first meeting until the night of our wedding, Jason's professionalism and his ability to make ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING completely PERFECT never ceased to amaze me. He made the entire experience a true fairytale and I can't thank him enough. Jason alone makes this venue worth booking.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, who works at the Essex House could not have been nicer and more accommodating to me (the bride) and all of our guests. The service was phenomenal, not just on the night of our wedding but the entire weekend.

The food was exceptional. My husband and I are foodies, so we had high expectations which were definitely exceeded. The appetizers are truly gourmet and the entire dinner was top notch. The fish was the best I've ever had and I know my Husband thoroughly enjoyed his filet.

There was NOTHING that I would change about my experience with the Essex House. It was a true fairytale wedding thanks to Jason and all of the staff at the Essex House. My husband and I will cherish our memories of that weekend forever.

PERFECTION!! That was my wedding at the Essex House. Not only is Jason Kwintner, Director of Catering a total professional, but he is also a pleasure to work with. He literally never said no and was able to accommodate almost all of my asks. My guests raved about the menu. We were able to customize the entree selections and the striped bass, chicken, and filet were all delicious. I also had incredible feedback on the cake. My guests had never tasted a wedding cake so delicious. We were able to customize the cake to the look we wanted. The entire staff at the Essex House are accommodating and very nice. The bridal suite was spacious and perfect for our wedding party to get ready together. Having the park across the street made for wonderful pictures, even as the rain started coming down we made it back to the hotel in time with the ability to use the gorgeous lobby for the rest of the pictures. Jason kept our party on track even though my group was running extremely behind. He was calm, cool and assured us we have an event flow not a set time for everything so not to worry, just enjoy and leave the logistics to him. I love Jason and the Essex house. This review is coming from someone who originally wanted a barn/ rustic wedding and was able to keep the urban rustic feel in this beautiful elegant atmosphere! THANK YOU JASON AND TEAM!

Best venue in NYC. Jason is the most professional wedding planner. He was in charge of everything, and ever since my wedding I have received nonstop compliments on everything from the quality of the food, to the event flow. After looking at over 20 venues, I know I made the right decision and would not change a thing.

The Essex House is perfect if you are looking for something centrally located in New York City for a group of between 125 and 200 people for an elegant wedding. We chose the venue due to its proximity to Central Park, the extremely high quality of the food, and the beautiful variety of spaces that allow for all events of your celebration to be in one location.

The only issues that I encountered were that occasionally emails were not responded to in a timely fashion or with complete answers and that the design of the cake wasn't exactly what I had requested (however, it was still lovely and very delicious and is actually growing on me the more I look at pictures). I found things were much easier to manage with the venue if I prepared a list of questions in advance and then arranged a phone call to get all of them answered at one time.

Overall, this venue is stunning, the food is absolutely delicious, and the staff coordinates the event day of with a precision that leaves you with absolutely nothing to worry about except getting yourself dressed and down the aisle.
