Wedding of our dreams
We recently had our dream wedding and reception at The River Café! Everyone there is so wonderful to work with, especially Luke. The whole day went so smoothly and they handled all the details perfectly. All our guests raved to us not only about the incredible location, but also the service and the food! While it isn't the cheapest option, you truly get a top notch wedding! We couldn't be happier we chose The River Café!

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!
The River Cafe is one of my favorite NYC locations to shoot.... It's always inspiring!
