So incredibly happy we found this place

My husband and I are native New Yorkers who were looking to have a wedding reception of about 70-80 people. Harding’s was perfect for us in so many ways from start to end.
+ Their service and professionalism was above and beyond: Jill, the Events Director, and her husband Ken operate the restaurant and they are the best. Every interaction I had with them and the staff made me feel at ease since they’ve done a lot of events and really know what they’re doing. They and the staff were also so professional when it came to some last minute accommodations (including a family member who was recovering from a sudden medical emergency and could not eat most solid food - the kitchen put together a soup just for him).
+ The space is absolutely lovely: We opted not to do any additional decor since honestly we didn’t need anything more to set the vibe. The space has a very classy, timeless aesthetic which our photographer had a lot of fun with. They also have a balcony area that overlooks the main dining space - my husband and I requested to have our sweetheart table up there which made the evening extra romantic having some space to ourselves. Again, this also made for beautiful photos.
+ The food and drinks are excellent: At least one of our guests ate 5 sliders during cocktail hour alone since it was that good. Moreover, we had a number of guests with dietary restrictions (dairy, nut, shellfish, pork, beef, etc.), but the restaurant was able to accommodate them and even allowed people to take their leftovers home to-go.
+ The location couldn’t be better: located in midtown Manhattan, the space is accessible by many train lines and hotels. Since it’s so central, there’s so many options for bars and nightlife for our guests who wanted to keep the party going (and party they did). Since Harding’s is a restaurant on days when they don’t have weddings, we love the idea of being able to return for date nights on our anniversaries to come.
In summary, for a Manhattan wedding I truly think we got a fantastic deal. It was a night to remember for us and all of our guests, and the restaurant now holds a special place in our hearts.

Perfect Manhattan wedding!

Choosing Harding's as our wedding venue was the best decision we made for our wedding. It's such a beautiful venue and the fact that they have such an impressive menu and bar made it a relaxed and lovely night for everyone. Harding's was so easy to work with during the entire planning process and helped us think through all the details of the evening. We'll be coming here to have a drink and remember our wedding night for years to come.

An Exception Spot

We had an exceptional time at Hardings, start to finish. Jill and Ken made ever step, from signing to contract to the actual party itself as stress free as it could possibly be --going so far as to help us envision what the ceremony could be like and making six different cocktails at the tasting until we found the right one. The food was delicious (the amount of compliments we got on the apps alone could fill a book), the cocktails were unique and flowing and the staff made the whole day a dream. The restaurant was an elegant and gorgeous place to have the ceremony and it seamlessly turned into a perfect party spot after.

We cannot recommend Hardings highly enough!
