Incredible wedding, incredible venue, incredible service!
We held our Black Tie wedding here on 10/20/18 and could not be happier with our selection. Ever since the beginning, Alexa and Bill went above and beyond to ensure our day was absolutely perfect. The venue is stunning and lends itself very well to a black tie NYC wedding - the pictures don't do it justice. Food was a huge priority for us, and the food was exceptional. Our friends are still talking about how it was some of the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The cocktail hour was insane. Service was exceptional as well - we had a "shadow" the night of our wedding who flawless. Every little request and nuance we asked the team for, they delivered on - in fact, over-delivered on. Edison Ballroom crushed every single detail of it, and our guests won't stop commenting on what an amazing wedding we had.Sent on 11/01/2018

My husband and I held our Black-Tie Wedding Ceremony and Reception at The Edison Ballroom on November 13, 2015.Sent on 01/18/2016
It exceeded every expectation that we had.
The Art Deco space is stunning and was everything we were looking for in a wedding venue.
The service was phenomenal.
The night of our wedding, we had a designated server to take care of us every step of the way. Even making sure that no one entered the bathroom while my bridesmaids helped me adjust by gown. Our guests said that the service they received was impeccable as well.
The food was out of this world. There was quite a long list of food options for the cocktail hour, all were delicious. The sushi station was a big hit! For dinner we chose a basil crusted salmon served with cous-cous and a baked tomato, as well as filet mignon with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Our guests enjoyed both options and raved about them! The silent vegetarian option was also well received by our non-carniverous guests.
Their entire bar selection is top shelf!
We live in NYC, but stayed at the Hotel Edison next door during the wedding week. We were able to transport our decor items the morning of the wedding, and The Edison Ballroom staff went above and beyond to help us out and make sure that everything was perfect. The lights, the sound, the direction we received during our procession, and the speed at which they could flip the ceremony set up in the ballroom, to a reception in under an hour was nothing short of miraculous.
We dealt primarily with Katherine and Bill and both were beyond accomodating and helpful. There were 230 guests in attendance and it was the perfect amount of space for dinner and dancing.
