    We had a wonderful wedding at The River Cafe. Every aspect of the experienced surpassed our expectations, and all the guests had a great time. The menu and service are phenomenal, and the views for an evening wedding of lower Manhattan are spectacular. The garden is an excellent location for a ceremony and gorgeous photos.

    I just got married at the River Cafe and it was a wonderful experience. From the beginning the staff was extremely helpful and professional, always responding to each question and helping us every step of the way. The venue is of course beautiful, but we also appreciated the fact that everything was so easy to organize, from the flowers, to music to food. The food is incredible by the way, all our guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Definitely recommend having your wedding here!
