From the first time I reached out to Jill through the day of our wedding on September 2, our experience working with Harding's exceeded all of our expectations. My husband and I looked at many venues in the NYC area and Harding's was the clear stand out. It's a beautiful space with lots of character that can stand on its own or be enhanced, located in a wonderful neighborhood, and is reasonably priced for the excellent level of service and high quality of food they offer. However, what impressed us most was how Ken, Jill and their staff always approached us with humanity, never pressured us, and were always transparent. Their communication was top notch and Jill was always prompt to respond to any questions or requests we had over the 10 months of planning. They felt like partners through the whole process and we were so grateful to host our 75 person cocktail-style wedding/reception with them!
The wedding day itself was everything we hoped for. The service our guests enjoyed on the day was top notch and the food and drinks were excellent. The staff also made sure that we were well taken care of and fed,and were never intrusive. In addition to the planning process and wedding itself going seamlessly, I have to shout out Ken for his professionalism and quick thinking when there was an electrical issue on the day of. A power outage on their block a few days before made their freight elevator non operational, which is how wedding parties usually enter Harding's prior to the ceremony and/or reception so they aren't seen by their guests. That day the elevator felt like an oven in the summer heat. It was not an option to wait there for 30 minutes, sweat dripping off of us, until the procession started. Ken jumped into action when he saw how uncomfortable the situation was for me (I was already nervous!) and arranged for the wedding party to relax in a private, air conditioned space nearby until it was time for the ceremony to begin. Total relief and crisis averted!

Perfect Wedding !
Jill, Ken & the whole team at Harding's were perfect from the start of our dealings with them. Coordinating before the wedding was as simple as an email. The day before the wedding one of our vendors had a technical issue that would have made them unable to make it to the wedding. Harding's jumped in and solved the problem - we were so thankful.
My husband and I had known we wanted a wedding at at restaurant to ensure the quality of the food and we surely were not disappointed. At the same time, Harding's orchestrated the wedding without a hitch. All of our friends and family raved about the food, atmosphere and drinks! If we had to do it all over again, we would pick Harding's without any hesitation.

Beyond our expectations
The team at Harding’s made our wedding experience a moment that we will never forget. My father, who at times can be quite difficult to impress, looked at me mid reception and said he was blown away by the service, the food, the commitment of the staff to ensure every detail, and how every guest, every single aspect of the evening - was absolutely attended to. I would hands down recommend this restaurant - this venue, to anyone seeking a beautifully aged venue that brings character to any event- to anyone seeking 5 star service, excellent food, and perfected customer service. Kudos to the owners for creating an environment where patrons, couples, guests, friends and family can enjoy each other, each celebration, each sip and each bite and be surrounded by history and early American architecture all in one. One word sums up our evening ... PERFECT!
