    They are amazing, yes the best ever! Mike, bill and patrick

    THEY ARE AMAZING and YES THE BEST EVER!! I can't thank them enough!! shout out to MIKE, BILL and PATRICK. They are easy to work with and accommodate our requests. They are very patient with us and really attend to our needs. They are the type of people that really love what the do, they really want to help you and please you and they are really passionate about their work.

    The Venue: from the rooftop to the penthouse, it is amazing, Manhattan skyline! we fell in love with the place the first time we saw it! need I say more?

    The Food: there are lots of choices! guests loved it! from appetizers to desserts! yummy!

    The Staff: as I said I can't them enough! MIKE and BILL, a million thanks! from planning to the day itself you've been hands on, from endless emails and texts (thanks Mike), from doing tours more than twice to make sure that we get it right, from small things such as linen colors to letting us putting our stuff the night before and letting us set-up (thanks Patrick), to putting my wedding bouquet in the kitchen refrigerator, to bringing us food in the Bridal suit because we can't make it to Cocktail hour, to bringing us food on our table during the wedding day so we don't need to stand up and go to the buffet, to having us some food to go, to checking up on us every time if we need something (we really appreciate you Bill). May God bless you all!!

    We highly recommend this place!!
