    Our event (cocktails and lunch for 108) was fantastic!
    Manager,Katherine Leong, Couldn't have been more helpful in the successful planning and execution of our party.
    A great number of guests raved about the delicious food and professional, attentive staff.
    Weather was great, so outside terraces added a lovely dimension.
    Only suggestion: the space would be enhanced by the addition of greenery here and there.

    I am a wedding planner, and I had my daughter’s bat mitzvah at Upper Story in December 2016. Jessica Powers and her team went above and beyond what I typically experience when working with a venue. Throughout the planning process, Jessica answered every question I had almost immediately, and she was so open and flexible with both the use of the space, and the menu. The space is beautifully decorated, with a lot of light if your event is during the day, and pretty views of the East Side and the 59th Street Bridge. If your wedding is at night, the view of the City and bridge is spectacular. The food is top quality restaurant fare, and there are so many delicious choices that it was actually hard to make a decision about the menu! The chef is amazing, and she was open to customizing the menu. I was extremely impressed with the staff, the food and the execution of the whole event. Our friends kept commenting on how beautiful the space was. One friend said that her table was trying to come up with a reason for a party just so they could have it at Upper Story! I can’t recommend Upper Story enough! – Kimberly Pilson (The Wedding Sitter).
