The Mandarin isn't one of the most exclusive, and luxury venues for no reason. They are, without question, the best of the best--from the incredible cityscapes viewable from its 35th and 36th floors, to the impeccable service offered by its staff, we had a top of the line experience from the day we booked. The only downside is that we can't re-live our wedding every weekend. It was truly that spectacular.


We had the luck and good fortune of working with James Munz, who was not only extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire planning process, but an all around lovely person who made us feel like our wedding was just as important as the next event. He did not hesitate to answer any emails, phone calls or out-of-left-field questions, and was more than accommodating to our every need and desire, down to the last second. He was really the icing on the cake of an already outstanding experience. If I could, I'd have a separate review on just him--the entire process was just seamless.

Of note: we did not have a wedding planner or day-of coordinator. That didn't matter in the least. The Mandarin and its staff was more than capable of running the show and did so exquisitely. Our wedding was the event of a lifetime and we are so thrilled that the Mandarin played such a special role on our big day. We could not be happier.

This review is for the Mandarin Oriental Catering/Event Staff:

The #1 must-have on our list for wedding venues was a NYC view. The view from the ballroom will not disappoint you. We began the planning process with Leah and James. I can not speak highly enough about both of them, the service they provide is impeccable. Their expertise goes so far above and beyond and their attention to detail is uncanny. Working with them not only made the planning process seamless but it was fun. Any question or request is done almost before you can finish asking.

The food... I can't even accurately put into words how delicious the food was. This is NOT your regular wedding/catering hall meal. The food was so fresh and still hot when it arrived to your plate. We received compliment after compliment from guests raving over how good the food was from the cocktail hour to the reception to the dessert.

On the day of, we had James and Jack working the room. I've said it already, but literally any request we made was met. They were friendly, fun and put any nerves you may have had at ease. Their service is of the highest quality!

While I realize the cost is not inexpensive, trust me between the view, the service and the food... it was well worth every penny!

Wow! Not only is the Mandarin the most beautiful venue in NYC with the most stunning view, but boy do they treat you right! The events team we worked with, led by James, was so organized and thoughtful, it made the planning process so easy. Plus, on the night of the wedding (and the whole weekend we stayed there), every staff member catered to our every need. We felt like royalty all weekend! And the food is by far the best food I've had at any wedding or event. We got so many compliments just on the fish entree alone that I lost count! The team at the Mandarin is clearly the best in the biz.

I didn't hold my wedding here (I had a destination wedding in Jamaica at Hummingbird Hall) but I had a week long bachelorette party/getaway here. Other than my wedding, it ranks among the best times of my life. Service impeccable. Amazing rooms. Fantastic location. Brilliant food!!

Wow! This place rocks! The view is amazing, the food is delicious, and the staff are the most professional people I have ever dealt with. James, our 'go to guy' actually had a baby the day before our wedding, yet he was there, on point, and made sure everything went on without a hitch.
The food is the most amazing food great for any event, everything cooked to perfection...These Chef's are awesome!

Within a couple hours of the ceremony we realized we forgot the yamakas for our guests. James got on the phone had a team searching for yamakas and boom we had enough in time.

What a beautiful place. Yes, it is expensive, but it is worth every penny!

Mandarin Oriental was outstanding! I went from a bride with a horror story (my Rainbow Room plans had been canceled due to its closing) to having a wedding reception that exceeded all my past dreams! James Munz is THE MAN!! He takes care of EVERYTHING! i had the most amazing stay in my suite that overlooked central park/midtown and the ballroom too has amazing views! you don't have to have a party in a box here, you get to enjoy the view of the NYC lights! the food was SPECTACULAR!!! I'm a little picky when i eat and i don't eat seafood and i'm not totally into the asian theme but everything was delicious!!! the cocktail hour food blew everyone away (they even thought it was dinner) and then they were additionally blown away by the 3 course meal and passed desserts! All these things aren't custom or additional, these are the standards! Which goes to show how exceptional they are! Definitely worth the money and you don't have to sweat a thing! Any request is a done deal!
