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.

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).

We are extremely happy that we chose to have our wedding at New Leaf! The location was beautiful, the venue/set-up (we had a clear tent) was gorgeous, the food (especially the duck!) was amazing, and the service impeccable! Tiffany and her team were truly professionals and catered to us and all of our guests. We are so thankful, because of them we had an amazing time and truly enjoyed our once-in-a-lifetime day with our friends and family. All of our guests, from the young to the old, enjoyed the evening - especially the atmosphere, drinks, and food! We got nothing but great feedback and compliments.

From the start Tiffany was very friendly, easy to work with, and responsive. We had to pick from a few venues and we knew New Leaf was the one immediately after we met with her. Tiffany was also very assuring and patient, which helped made the planning process easier and smoother.

We 100% recommend New Leaf, both as a restaurant and definitely as a wedding venue, to anyone and everyone. But book early, a place like this gets booked up quickly! You will not be disappointed!

This is a review for New Leaf, but especially for Tiffany Hogan, the event coordinator at the New Leaf. I would love to see Tiffany organize everything in my life. Nothing is a problem. She is calm, professional, charming and one of the nicest people I have ever met. She has been at New Leaf for over 5 years and it shows as the whole operation runs like clockwork. It was the first venue that we visited and we basically wanted to write her a cheque five minutes after meeting her. I would wake up in the night with a million questions, shoot her an email, and a few hours later have a calm email back with everything answered.

We had a smaller wedding with 56 people and the venue was perfect size. We did our ceremony on Linden Terrace and then the reception in New Leaf. Every guest, and I mean, EVERY guest, commented on the food and this was a pretty good foodie crowd. We literally had people running up to us when we walked in saying that it was the best food they have had in ages, not just the best wedding food, the best food, period! Since it is a restaurant, everything is made to order and deliciously fresh.

Aside from the food, the service is impeccable. The same staff work at the restaurant, so there is no problem training or coordinating the staff. They were charming, unobtrusive and really elegant in their work. Lovely little touches like having waiters wait outside for all the guests with cocktails and wine (including the groom and myself, who came in much later) or my FIL asking about the wine and the waitress offering to steam the label off for him were done with no fuss, just perfect style. Not a drink glass was empty for a minute, or a napkin accidentally dropped to the floor before being replaced by this stellar team.

I honestly have woken up every day since my wedding and been so grateful that I met Tiffany and her team at New Leaf and feel so blessed that we were able to have our wedding there and have nothing but good memories of that day.

We had the best wedding ever, and our guests thought so too. If you go to the New Leaf for dinner and can envision your wedding there, you should do it. Fort Tryon park is one of the gems of New York City, and this restaurant is the perfect compliment to the setting. The food there is amazing, and the food at the reception was no different! The quality of food was a major deciding factor for us in selecting our venue. Again, our guests are still talking about how delicious all the menu items were. We opted for a cocktail-style reception with passed hors d'oeuvres, a pasta station, an antipasto table and a carving station, but I'm sure a sit-down dinner would be amazing as well. Our welcome drinks were lovely and the whole night was a success. Tiffany, the event coordinator is organized, professional and smart, she will make sure your event goes of without a hitch. Her suggestions were always right on and her taste level is really high; she understood our sensibility and aesthetic as a couple, and made sure that was reflected in the venue. You will be in good hands with Tiffany, and you can't go wrong with the beautiful location.

We had my daughter's wedding reception for 125 people at the New Leaf in early October. Though my daughter has lived in New York City for several years, I was in charge of coordinating many aspects of the reception and ceremony (which was held on Linden Terrace in the park). Since I live in Indiana and could not be on site frequently, I found this to be daunting. However, the New Leaf's event coordinator, Tiffany Hogan, was MARVELOUS. She answered every question I had promptly by email, was available by appointment when I was able to be in the city, was able to suggest reliable vendors in various price ranges, and had helpful suggestions that assured our reception ran smoothly. She also acted as the onsite coordinator during the reception. Both my daughter and I had many people, both local to New York and from out-of-town, tell us that her wedding reception was the liveliest and most seamlessly run reception that they had ever attended -- to say nothing of the most fun! I highly recommend the New Leaf to other brides and grooms (and their parents).

Tiffany and the staff at the New Leaf Restaurant exceeded all expectations for our summer wedding. During the planning process, Tiffany was always pleasant, helpful and responsive. The event execution couldn't have been better and no detail was left unaddressed, from the polished silverware to our ceremony needs. The food was AMAZING, as was the service, and all of our guests agreed. Any restaurant that can deliver a perfectly cooked steak to over 100 people deserves a prize and the New Leaf did that and more. I cannot wait to return!

As soon as we started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to get married in Fort Tryon Park and have the reception at the New Leaf. It is a sentimental place for us in addition to being one of the most beautiful spots in New York. Tiffany Hogan, the New Leaf's event coordinator, was very helpful through out the whole process. She helped us find a florist who also did an excellent job at a great price. The day of the event, things went very smoothly. Tiffany and her staff were able to make some adjustments on the fly to make sure that everything was perfect. For example, our cake topper got lost and Tiffany quickly created a flower arrangement from our bar flowers to spruce up the otherwise plain cake. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how great the service was during the reception. You could barely finish a glass of wine before the waiters were filling it again. In spite of the fact that we had 120 guests who chose from 3 entrees during the reception, everyone's food came out at the same time. The New Leaf was more than we planned on spending ($150ish per head) but I think that the value is really great, especially for Manhattan. They really know what they are doing and I loved not having to worry about choosing a separate caterer.

As soon as we started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted to get married in Fort Tryon Park and have the reception at the New Leaf. It is a sentimental place for us in addition to being one of the most beautiful spots in New York. Tiffany Hogan, the New Leaf's event coordinator, was very helpful through out the whole process. She helped us find a florist who also did an excellent job at a great price. The day of the event, things went very smoothly. Tiffany and her staff were able to make some adjustments on the fly to make sure that everything was perfect. For example, our cake topper got lost and Tiffany quickly created a flower arrangement from our bar flowers to spruce up the otherwise plain cake. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how great the service was during the reception. You could barely finish a glass of wine before the waiters were filling it again. In spite of the fact that we had 120 guests who chose from 3 entrees during the reception, everyone's food came out at the same time. The New Leaf was more than we planned on spending ($150ish per head) but I think that the value is really great, especially for Manhattan. They really know what they are doing and I loved not having to worry about choosing a separate caterer.

The best way to sum it up is how everyone said it was one of the best weddings they've been to. Humbly, part of that was us but alot was New Leaf. The setting was gorgeous, the service and food during the event was great, the service before (like advising of flowers, seating, food choices, etc) was great and the cost was reasonable. No hassles at all.

When my (now) husband proposed to me, I had one place I knew I wanted to get married and that was New Leaf Restaurant & Bar in Fort Tryon Park. Beautifully set in the park where we take our weekly walks, close to the exquisite Cloisters museum and the breathtaking views of the Hudson and the George Washington Bridge, it's where I always dreamed of getting married if the possibility of gay marriage in New York ever existed. However, I'd checked into it out of curiosity about a year earlier and thought it might be too cost prohibitive. But when I contacted their wedding coordinator, Tiffany, she was quick to work with us to meet our budgetary needs. We decided on a cocktail reception instead of a sit down dinner, which was more in keeping with the kind of party we'd want anyway. And even then, they bent over backward to make tweaks in the listed price to fit more into our budget. They were incredibly solicitous to our needs every step of the way, from the sumptuous tastings of the possible hors d'oeuvres and signature cocktails, to coordinating with our wedding planner on design and execution, to the timing and service on the day itself. There was not a missed step anywhere along the way. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was, as well as our signature tea rose martini. And the service was impeccable. I'd recommend to any engaged couples wanting to marry in Manhattan that they put New Leaf at the top of their list of contenders.

New Leaf Restaurant was a beautiful and special site to have our wedding ceremony and reception. My coordinator at New Leaf, Tiffany Hogan, was thorough, easy-going, knowledgeable, supportive and gracious with the planning process. My family and friends still continue to comment on how great the food was. As a bride, I can tell you that I made sure to have the time to enjoy my meal at New Leaf given how phenomenal their presentation was when my husband and I had done our menu tasting - they did not disappoint on our wedding day, it was all freshly prepared for each of my 80 guests. New Leaf made the event so much more intimate, warm and unique than what most of my guests had seen at other, mostly traditional wedding banquet/hotel sites. While everyone will add their own touch to the site for their event, New Leaf's ambiance enhances the notation that "simplicity is bliss", and it was from that that we were able to give our guests a feeling of vintage/old New York, but with the flare of the city still aglow. We really loved our event at New Leaf and could not have asked for more.

This place is a hidden gem!! I didnt even bother looking at another venue to have my wedding. This place has everything, amazing food, beautiful decor, helpful and delightful staff and so much more.

If you are looking for something slightly different from the "conventional" wedding settings, that's more intimate then this is the place to go. All of my guests had such a wonderful time and enjoyed everything they ate.

The staff is very well organized and very accommodating. Tiffany was a pleasure to work with.

The only reason i did score it a little low on value is that you must be prepared to do some of the planning yourself, things such as the tent, chairs, tables, linens etc. [If you decide to have an outdoor ceremony.] Tiffany does have all that contact information and helps you along in that process. Even though its a little extra work, i think its completely worth it.

My wedding was so beautiful, and i just loved every moment at the new leaf. I wish someone else i knew would get married their just so i can go back.

New Leaf was the absolute perfect place for our wedding! The food is wonderful quality (I recommend their brunch too on Saturdays!), and made with a conscience (seasonal etc.). The coordinator is super helpful and managed to answer all my questions promptly despite weddings taking place every weekend. And better yet, your rental of the location goes to support a wonderful cause!

We planned the entire wedding from abroad and in a relatively short time (we began in March to plan for an August wedding) Everything went smoothly and the reception at New Leaf was simply beautiful! The food especially was excellent, and even now, months after our wedding, our guests keep talking about it. The meal (4 courses) was served quickly (and hot), people loved the open bar, and the setting is unbeatable. We can recommend New Leaf to everyone as the PERFECT place for a wedding reception!

I had the pleasure of working with Tiffany Hogan, the event manager at the New Leaf Restaurant and Bar, to help plan my recent wedding. There was no more daunting task in my mind than planning a party not to mention a wedding. Tiffany met me and my now husband with genuine interest in creating an event we would remember.
Without question, Tiffany identified the potential problems that created the biggest concerns in the prospect of planning a party for 100 of our closest family and friends. She guided me gracefully through the entire process of planning the party with enthusiasm and courtesy. She was not pushy about any aspect of the wedding - from the tent company we chose, to where we placed flower arrangements - but did share her very valuable opinions that resulted in a great party. She knew what needed to get done and helped organize me in accomplishing those tasks.
The essence of Tiffany’s professionalism was truly noted on the day of the wedding. Her confidence in how perfect the night would be and her insistence that I need not worry about anything ensured a good time for me. We never missed a beat. All went with precision and control or if it didn’t, it was not evident to me or any of my guests. The service was smooth and pressure-free which resulted in an enjoyable atmosphere. The amount of gratitude I owe Tiffany for making my wedding a perfect, stress-free event is immeasurable.
Since that day, all who attended the event have had nothing but positive comments to share with my husband and me.
Thanks to her I have only fond memories of my wedding day. I highly recommend Tiffany to anyone looking for a confident, capable, professional event planner.

This was truly the perfect venue for a wedding. My husband and I were looking for a unique place that was located in New York City, but also had a bucolic atmosphere - We could not have chosen a better place! The New Leaf and the park it is located in are absolutely beautiful. Our guests were amazed that such a pretty and peaceful setting could exist in Manhattan.

The staff was very friendly and helpful at every point in the wedding planning process (thanks for all your help Tiffany!) and the food was excellent! (I recommend the duck confit tortilla's as one of your passed appetizers.)

The New Leaf really goes above and beyond in trying to help you have the most perfect wedding day - and with a location like theirs, its hard not to!
