    Excellent Service

    I am so grateful and appreciative for everything that Kevin and Nikki did for me to make my wedding such a beautiful event and a smashing success. We were supposed to get married at Central Park and the reception was at The View. The weather wasn't going to cooperate and the day before the ceremony, Kevin suggested holding the ceremony at The View just in case. We had to move some things around, but if it wasn't for his professionalism, flexibility, his stray strong attitude and most importantly his sincere feelings on wanting my day to be so special, I wouldn't have known what I would've done or how it was going to turn out. Could I risk everyone getting rained on in Central Park? He said "no, that's not going to happen, we will have the ceremony here and everything will be fantastic!" He was so right, everything was beautiful and my guests still contact me to tell me that my wedding was on of the best weddings they ever attended. Not only is the venue beautiful, the food was absolutely amazing. My vendors even contacted me after the wedding to say what a great time they had at my wedding. Please check out The View at Battery Park for a first class reception and ask for Kevin and/or Nikki. You won't be sorry. Every detail was perfect and they handled everything that had to change at the last minute with such ease and professionalism. Aside from saying "yes" to marrying my husband, this was the best decision I made regarding my wedding. I have the utmost gratitude and offer my sincerest thanks towards Kevin, Nikki and Alec. Thanks again for all of you for making my day so special and one that not only myself and my husband will fondly remember, but my guests as well. I give this venue and their team 5 GOLD STARS and then some!!

    Incredible Wedding Venue with Exceptional Hospitality

    Finding Kevin and his excellent team at The View at the Battery was a dream come true for us because we were so excited about the idea of getting married in the neighborhood that we live in (and met in). From day one, Kevin was an incredible resource: highly responsive, very professional, extremely accommodating, and exceptionally kind. Kevin's MO is to operate his business with warmth, recognizing the importance of people's wedding days, and we felt that throughout the entire wedding planning process. The day of our wedding, Kevin and Nikki handled absolutely everything for us, without us worrying about a thing (even inclement weather, that of course hit right when the ceremony was to start!). Although our ceremony ended up being held inside (we had planned to hold it outside), the ceremony looked stunning from the second floor of the venue, where big glass windows captured the beauty of the stormy skyline and the Statute of Liberty in the background, with beautiful floral arrangements and curtains in the foreground. The whole day feels like a blur, but throughout the experience we felt so well taken care of--as did all of our guests, who raved about the incredible cocktail hour, seated menu, and drinks. We are so glad to have worked with Kevin and Nikki, and we look forward to visiting The View's restaurant many times in the future as old friends.

    A Perfect Venue

    The location itself is stunning and was a truly amazing place for our cocktail hour, just as the sun was setting over the Harbor. But the food and Nikki, the coordinator, were in a class of their own and made the reception better than we could have imagined. The food was abundant and flawless - many of our guests reached out days after to say it was the best food at a wedding that they have had. And Nikki was simply amazing in communicating with us, being flexible at every turn even as we were planning with only two months in advance, and was everywhere on the evening. Can't say enough, but it was a dream and we are very grateful for a perfect evening.
