Accommodating during a pandemic
We originally booked our wedding for April of 2020 but had to postpone because of the covid-19 pandemic. We ended up postponing to August but that wasn’t feasible again because of the pandemic. By August, things hadn’t gotten better. Thankfully, Bryant Park agreed to postpone again to May 2021 has been incredibly flexible. We worked with Kristi to pick a new date. We weren’t charged a change fee and our contract price remained the same, even though we moved it all the way to May 2021.Sent on 10/25/2020
The food is amazing here and we are looking forward to celebrate our special day with family and friends once it’s safe to gather.

AMAZING venue and service
My husband and I got married at Bryant Park Grill in late January and had the BEST night of our lives. Here are the highlights:Sent on 02/06/2020
1. We worked with Emma, who was a pleasure to work with from Day 1. She is extremely patient, knowledgeable, flexible, and professional. We asked for many custom arrangements and she said yes to EVERYTHING we asked for! She was very responsive and made the planning process as easy as possible.
2. The space itself is stunning. It does not need any flowers, special lighting, or decoration - it is beautiful on its own without any adornment. We loved every nook and cranny of the venue. The tent are was gorgeous and gave guests spectacular views of the city, park, and skyline. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - great lighting, elegant, sophisticated, classy, etc. The space has a 'warm' feel, not sterile like some other wedding venues we visited. The location was very convenient, as well.
3. The food was fantastic! Many of our guests said that this was the best wedding food they had ever tasted! Given it's a restaurant by design, and not a traditional wedding venue, the food is head and shoulders better than most venues.
4. The pricing was actually reasonable / fair compared to some other places we looked into.
These words do not begin to give Bryant Park Grill the credit / accolades it deserves. We had the best night - we loved every aspect of the venue / service / staff - and would not change a thing! THANK YOU Emma, Tom, and Bryant Park staff for making this the best night of our lives.

My fiance and i were debating between two different venues, one in Cape Cod and the Bryant Park Grill. We had looked at over 6 different venues in New York City, and we either felt they didn't have the whole picture, or I didn't love the Special events Coordinator. I emailed BPG, and was connected with Dominick. I asked to speak on the phone with him, and from the moment we spoke i knew that we were getting married there. The Venue itself, is magical. Right in Bryant Park, and has everything you need, good food, beauty and the best special events team. I inquired about having a Vegan wedding, and most venues we spoke with, stuck their nose up at me, or tried to make me feel uncomfortable. Dominick did none of this, he said " we can do anything you want, its your wedding". From that moment, i knew we were making the right choice. Dominick worked with us throughout the entire process of 2019, and beginning of 2020. When Covid hit, Dominick answered every email, phone call and even suggested for my personality type to postpone to 2021. He works on behalf of his clients, and I have heard horror stories of brides from Covid. The venue worked with us to find a new date, and didn't even blink to charge us more money. They have our best interest at heart, and I cannot wait to get married there in 2021. They really are the best venue in the city, and when you call, ask to work with Dominick.Sent on 09/04/2020
