Haven's Kitchen is a GEM!
I decided to have a destination wedding in NYC, because my husband proposed to me in Central Park! We knew we both wanted to have an intimate family/friend wedding, and we also knew we didn't want to have it in a church. The day after we got engaged, we began our search in the city while we were still there, and I found Haven's Kitchen. I immediately was drawn to Haven's because of how quaint and cozy it looked from photos off of Google. I called and requested a tour, and we met Francesca the following day at Haven's. Francesca was the most warm person I had ever met, she immediately made us feel so welcome and apart of the Haven's family. She led us through the different floors and I immediately fell head over heels in love with Haven's. It was everything I wanted. It felt like it was our own home in NY, a home away from home (Tulsa, Ok). The decor spoke for itself, very modern, and vintage. The third floor is where we had the ceremony, and then cocktail hour on the second floor, and then had the third floor flipped into our reception. It was a no brainer for us that Haven's was THE PLACE we wanted to start our new chapter together. We had a guest count of 50, so we wanted to make sure we found a place that didn't swallow our guests, but also didn't make it feel like it was too small. Haven's was the PERFECT size, literally perfect. Once the planning started rolling, I was put in contact with Irit. I cannot say enough good things about Irit! She is so detail oriented and truly took off the burden of managing my vendors when things got closer. She was our rock! So, Irit, if you are reading this and don't know this already, Logan and I love and cherish you so much! Planning a destination wedding can be quite the mountain to climb, but Haven's was so good at communicating with me throughout the whole process, truly covering all of the basis. Haven's is known for their wonderful food, so we took the chance and decided to cater them for the wedding, and boy are we glad we did! The menu they put together for us was spectacular! It was very well balanced, and there was something for everyone, which is a hard thing to do. All of our guests had nothing but good things to say about the food! So if you are looking into Haven's for a wedding or event, CATER WITH THEM! You won't be disappointed. To be honest, there are no negatives that I had with my whole experience with Haven's Kitchen. I cannot say enough good things about them. They truly made my wedding day the best day of my life. So what are you waiting for ??? Go contact Haven's Kitchen !!!!!!Sent on 01/20/2020

Wonderful venue and team!
My husband and I decided on short notice to plan a wedding ceremony and dinner, with a small group of friends. Francesca and Irit at Haven's Kitchen were amazing to work with. They were incredibly responsive and accommodating. And, on the day of our ceremony, Irit took care of every detail, such that we didn't have to worry about anything. We simply could just enjoy our time with our guests. I would definitely recommend them! Our wedding ceremony was so memorable, and I will always be grateful for how special the evening turned out to be.Sent on 10/21/2019

Exceptional - Service, Food, and Event Execution were true perfection
Our experience with Havens Kitchen was beyond perfect. From the moment we were touring the venue to the final moments of our wedding celebration, their service was exceptional and seamless. The food was not only delicious but also beautiful, and the venue setup and event execution was perfection. We would like to give special recognition to Francesca and Irit who were amazing to work with. I would highly suggest Haven's Kitchen if you are looking to have a New York City wedding.Sent on 07/29/2019
