We had our wedding at New Leaf Cafe a few weeks ago. The actual event was spectacular. Everything fell into place, the venue was gorgeous, the food delicious, and every single person at our wedding loved the entire experience. For the day of experience, I would give the venue a 5.0 out of 5.0. (Note: The staff working the event are the epitome of wonderful service. They handled every detail with care and professionalism.)

The planning process, however, was very frustrating and characterized by "miscommunication" and curt - if any - responses from the Event Manager. We secured the venue right before big staff changes (Event Manager and Restaurant Manager), and often felt like our event had slipped through the cracks. With that said, everything came together during the last two weeks of planning and the night went off without a hitch.

I would highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a beautiful and affordable location in NYC. Just be prepared to deal with some delays and frustration during the planning process.

New Leaf Restaurant was everything we wanted in a reception venue - great food, seamless service, beautiful setting, and unique for both out-of-towners and New Yorkers alike. Several of our guests commented that the food we served at our wedding was the best wedding food they've ever had. Steaks came out medium rare. The bass was perfectly cooked. The risotto was piping hot. Wine and water glasses never went empty. Everything was great.

The whole night went really smoothly. The kitchen was very communicative with our DJ to coordinate when courses would be served and time everything out with the toasts, dance sets, everything.

Unfortunately, planning the reception was not always a smooth experience. The restaurant experienced a changeover in staff members during the months we were planning our wedding, and the new event coordinator took some time to transition into her role. She was not always easy to get a hold of via phone or email, which made for some stressful lapses in communication. Her demeanor was not always the most professional and she dropped the ball a couple times, but in the end, the whole staff pulled everything together and made for a really great party. Hopefully once the event coordinator and the new GM are better acquainted with the restaurant, the planning process will be less stressful for future brides. I know the last event coordinator (Tiffany... who is mentioned in every review) was really fantastic, so it looks like there are some big shoes to fill :-)

Overall this place is a real neighborhood gem. And affordable by NYC standards for a seated dinner.

We just had our wedding hosted by New Leaf Restaurant and Bar in Fort Tryon Park. The night was magical and a lot of what made it so special was New Leaf. The setting is absolutely beautiful. It truly cannot be beat. It accomplishes a true "al fresco" atmosphere. The tent is gorgeous as is the twinkle lighting they adorn the tent with. The restaurant has a rustic charm and elegance that is hard to come by. For those wishing to have a "different" kind of wedding in NYC, it is a great bet. We did have a few hiccups with communication with the event coordinator, and some miscommunication did occur, leading us to some stressful moments in planning, but when the actual night came everything was wonderful. Joel Tauzin, the hospitality manager was fantastic, very helpful, knowledgable and professional. Service was top notch. The price, will not exactly low, is fair and actually much lower than many other NYC venues. The food is tasty and elegant. Overall, the New Leaf is a wonderful option for those looking for an intimate, elegant and different NYC wedding.

My husband and I had a truly special wedding at New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park in early May. The weather held for us and we were lucky enough to have the ceremony outside in nearby Linden Terrace, followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing under the clear tent at New Leaf. The setting was gorgeous and easily accessible, which were our two main criteria when finding a site, but the food turned out to be phenomenal! Portions were generous, service was attentive, plating was gorgeous, and we're still getting complements. My friend put it best, that New Leaf is "Stone Barns, for people in the know". I totally agree, and my husband and I could not have been happier with how the evening played out.

We had a fantastic wedding experience at the New Leaf. Tiffany and team were unbelievable, and the venue is spectacular. Setting is gorgeous, and the food and staff are first class. I'd recommend 100 times out of 100.

I was skeptical to see most vendors on this site rated 5 stars. New Leaf, however, deserves no less. The value is above what any other vendor could have offered. Tiffany took care of our piecemeal questions efficiently, doing her best to work with the Parks Department when we learned the permit for our date was taken, and entirely gracious in changing our date to accommodate permit availability.

While inconvenient for staff, New Leaf was also accommodating when I wanted to wait until the last minute to decide if the wedding would be held indoors (a free option for rainy days). Unfortunately, the rain kept us inside, but it could not have been under better management. Tiffany required vendors to work directly with her on setting up (rather than approaching me). Our DJ showed up with extra equipment...the band was late...all was managed professionally without adding questions, decisions, or stress to our day. Tiffany knows her venue and truly takes command - exactly what we needed.

I was told I should have seen my aunt's face when she realized there was a full meal after numerous, exceptional, appetizers. You select three entrées on top of a vegetarian dish, and guests choose what they feel like that evening. We received numerous compliments on what guests described as a quality restaurant meal. You would never guess the food was prepared for a large party. The best filet mignon my cousin ever had.

The staff, many working at New Leaf for years, were professional and on top of everything. Upon hearing that my friend had a temporary dairy restriction (it doesn't agree with her little one), the head chef walked out to discuss what requirements she had and which options they could make friendly for her. Who does that? Simply above and beyond.

Only downside is that New Leaf cannot control wedding permits in the park (nor do they have access to the database to see what is or isn't available in advance)...not much they can do about that.

This was a beautiful venue for our wedding reception and ceremony (Linden Terrace in Fort Tryon Park). ALL of the guests were complimenting the food and the amount of appetizers (they just kept coming) and the dinner/service. The food was served in a really timely manner, even considering that they don't take the entree orders until that night and Tiffany kept everything running smoothly and troubleshooted everything. We did a clear tent on the patio and so many guests complimented the venue space. Everyone commented that they had never been there before and can't believe that it's in Manhattan --- they all loved the space.

My overall experience with New Leaf was excellent. Their venue coordinator Tiffany was extremely helpful throughout the whole process: she was always calm, responsive, patient, and nice. Booking Process: make an appointment with Tiffany and she'll show you all the possible ceremony sites within the park, the cocktail hour, reception areas and answer all your questions patiently. Book early! Food Tasting: unbelievably good. All yummy and they give you a doggie bag in case you can't finish (most likely you won't, b/c they give you so much. Planning Process: Tiffany is very responsive and the venue is very relaxed and laid back (they let us borrow some of their furnitures, our dogs..) Wedding Day: All the staffs were willing to help with the set up. It's still a restaurant so each table had a wait staff table service (guests were able to order drinks with their waiter without having to go to the bar).
