I'd like to preface that my husband and I recently married on June 25 2016. We married at the Vista Sky Lounge and Penthouse Ballroom located in the Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Long Island City. We lucked out finding this venue that would've blown water's edge out of the water. It was a rooftop wedding with amazing views of the skyline. They were extremely helpful after we found out our wedding that was booked in May 2015 at Water's Edge was not going to happen. After the issues started going public in the papers (seemed like everyday, singh was on the front cover of Newsday) we started calling, emailing, investigating. There were no responses from anyone that we had previously been in contact with and knew something was wrong. Finally someone answered one night, a new manager that was there and told us to come down to the venue to talk. He was honest and candid telling us he doesn't know how long the place will be open and our wedding was not going to happen. There was also a large crane in the water directly in front of the Windows blocking the view that everyone goes there for. We lost our deposit and have been unable to get it back. We are looking to hear from other couples that have lost out due to the fact that the owner is a criminal and how we can go about fighting this!

I am supposed to have my wedding here in 2016. Clearly, with Mr. Singh's indictments the Waters Edge may not be open. They refuse to refund me any money. It is completely appalling that an alleged criminal can get away with now ruining a special day and extorting money to pay for his crime.

Beware of anything that H. Singh or the Singh Hospitality Group has itself signed on to. They are out to take your deposit and not provide service. They are scoundrels.

When we saw the article from Gothamist that came out on Friday 10/25, we panicked. We went to the restaurant immediately and spoke with the person in charge at that point. The staffs reassured us that everything will be fine and our wedding will still be held on Sat 10/3/15. Trust me, I cried every night for a week worrying that the wedding was not going to happen as planned or the restaurant won't be operating. We went to the venue everyday and spoke with Asif, the new manager, Paul, the new matre'd everyday and Scott, the head bartender everyday. Sometimes even twice a day to make sure they have enough staffs, food and liquor for our wedding. They all understood our concerns and promised us that they will do whatever it takes to make sure our wedding will run smoothly. I also cried about the construction outside which blocked half of the view. There is nothing the restaurant could do. Paul did speak with them to have them lower the cranes before the day of our wedding. We were so disappointed but we understood that they did try their best. We were just praying for the sun to go down early because you can't really see it at night.

Up to the day of the wedding, the groomsmen went there at 10am to ensure the restaurant was operating. We felt relieved, when my husband met and knowing the ceremony and all the tables were set up. Everyday since the article came out, we had a back up plan to have a shot gun wedding in a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown if things didn't happen as promised.

The wedding turned out way better than I expected. The food was amazing. We received so many compliments on the cocktail hour food and everyone who had the seabass told us the fish was hot and cooked perfectly! Paul and Asif went out of their way to make sure everything was running smoothly. People have always warned me that things will not happened as planned for every wedding. I have to say. My wedding was perfect. My husband and I had no complaints. **see Yelp for full review**

For disclosure, my husband and I are posting this on several wedding sites, so people can be warned about Water's Edge, and get a sense of the great disappointment we had due to their lack of professionalism.
A wedding on a hot summer day shouldn't lead to disaster, but Water's Edge mispresented their facility and operations to handle such a situation. We were seduced by the view and expected a similar level of service, but they did not live up that to that. They have a serious problem with untrained staff and poorly maintained infrastructure. On our wedding day granted it was hot, the outside temperature in the mid 90's -- but this is something you would expect the venue to be able to handle! Summer days in the 90s are not unusual. But they didn't turn on the A/C until a little before the time the guests arrived. And it's not even that the A/C broke, Water's Edge said it was working at full power the whole time. But the rooms never got cool, and our guests were sweating profusely throughout the ceremony and reception. The staff kept saying they were working on it but we didn't see any real results. They diverted all the A/C air to the main dining room, but as a result the bridal room and hallways were unbearable; and as the day proceeded, even the maitre d' asked, Why is the temperature still going up?
So I think Water's Edge is basically saying this is what you will get. They aren't going to make the A/C capital investments, and they're not going to turn on the A/C a few hours early to save on electric bills. There were other hints, like the fact that the elevator was balky both times we went to visit, and there were other online postings about roaches underneath the table in the restaurant. Granted that the restaurant and events are handled by different people, but both represent the Water's Edge brand, and are part of the same corporate Singh Hospitality Group. And our dealings with the corporate team afterwards were disappointing as well, to say the least.

The worst possible place to go. Management does not care about the guests. They have no respect for decent human behavior. They attempt to screw you over in every little detail. They smashed the back windshield of my car, admit guilt say they will pay for it and ignore the bills that they are given. Do not go here for anything. Management does not care about decent human behavior.

Beautiful venue but I would not book again. They are overpriced for what they provide & the coordiator was not helpful even the day of the wedding. During setup she was not available to ask questions & would not resond to texts & emails. So frustrating! they need to make more improvements.

Water's Edge used to be fantastic. Since September, everything is in shambles and the way they are treating customers is horribly unprofessional. Anyone looking to book should google Water's Edge and the owner's name, H. Singh, before making a decision.
