Professional and easy to work with, beautiful venue
We chose City Winery for our wedding this May, and it was the most amazing day. The venue is stunning and the staff is accommodating, patient, professional, easy to work with, and went above and beyond what we could have expected. The whole wedding process was simplified and fun because of Suzanna. The day of the wedding was fun, beautiful, and the food was wonderful. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the wedding was. Our wedding was everything we have ever imagined. We would highly recommend City Winery.Sent on 05/25/2019

We are so happy with our decision to choose City Winery as our wedding venue! It is unique, beautiful and the food is delicious. Not to mention the wine! Some of the first things people said to me during the cocktail hour was how great the wine is. We agree!! The staff is easy to work with and so helpful. Suzanna was our wedding coordinator and she really went above and beyond for us! The food at the wedding was delicious, people keep commenting about it whenever we see them. The space is a really pretty place and creates a warm, romantic and gorgeous backdrop for a wedding. Another bonus is the sound system and acoustics! Because City Winery is a concert venue we were able to hear the DJ and have an amazing dance party while still having easy to hear conversations. We highly recommend having your wedding at City Winery, we are so so happy that we did and we keep talking about when we will go back for dinner and more wine!Sent on 12/03/2018

From the moment we toured City Winery, we knew it was the perfect fit for our wedding! We had our wedding in the Winery and Barrel Room, and it was such a unique, cool, and intimate space. I cannot thank Erin Winrock enough for all her help during the planning process, and for making the actual day so perfect!! She answered my often frequent emails with kindness, and detail, and always put me at ease with any concerns I was having. City Winery truly goes above and beyond to accommodate you, and make sure that your experience, and your day is perfect and seamless. The food is great, the wine is obviously awesome, and the staff truly shines. Thank you Erin, and the team at City Winery for an experience and night we will always remember!!Sent on 09/11/2018

City Winery was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding day and the entire wedding planning process with the staff (especially Suzanna) was a breeze. Having both grown up outside of Manhattan and as current residents we were looking for a venue that had an urban vibe, but that wasn't too stuffy. City Winery transformed from a concert venue into an oasis and was the perfect combination of urban, rustic and elegance. If wine, food and music are very important to you (as they are to us) City Winery is the best combination of these three things.Sent on 11/01/2016
The food was very good, and we were offered many different choices for both the cocktail hour appetizers and the entrees. And the cake which is included within the cost was delicious (from Tribeca Treats) and people are still talking about the chocolate mousse with sea salt. City Winery was also very accommodating and allowed us to order in a late night pizza delivery for our guests toward the end of the party.
We loved having access to the entire venue and it came in handy when the weather did not cooperate for outdoor pictures. Our pictures turned out much better than we'd expected and we have some great shots downstairs where the barrels are stored and in the winery itself (where we had the cocktail hour).
Logistics wise, Suzanna and the rest of the staff had everything covered and were extremely organized with tremendous attention to detail. The communication with the rest of our vendors felt flawless and the day of flowed exactly how we'd imagined. In fact, we've even had people ask us for our wedding schedule since it worked so well. As City Winery manages logistics for many types of events, I would say this is one of their strong suits.
Our wedding was hands down the best day of our lives and we would not change a thing. We thank City Winery for making it so special.

We had our wedding at City Winery on 8/22/15 and it was a fantastic experience. We worked with Alienor to plan our day, and she was with us the whole way, including as our day-of coordinator. Alienor was attentive, friendly, professional and very easy to work with. I am a very particular person - I created details like custom match books and cocktail napkins, monogram letters, and special straws. I even created a floorplan showing the layout and Alienor put together our day perfectly. The entire experience was such a pleasure. Theresa was my bridal attendant, she was so lovely when we met her at our tasting that we requested her specifically. All of the staff was professional and attentive, we have received nothing but positive feedback from our guests.Sent on 11/15/2015
My husband and I wanted to get married downtown, where our love story began. We wanted a formal affair that was warm and welcoming, not stuffy and cold. City Winery proved to be exactly that - so comfortable and inviting and polished. We went with all white florals with subtle antique green accents - the flowers popped beautifully against the wood and iron. The space was gorgeous - open and airy. We had 100 guests, and a photobooth and were not crowded at all.
The value at this venue is unbeatable. They don't nickel and dime you and they throw a fantastic party. The food was delicious and creative (my husband and I are very picky NYC foodies). They were very accommodating - we had special arrangements made for various gluten free, vegan and kosher guests, including them welcoming us bringing in outside gluten free desserts.
The night flowed perfectly and was orchestrated by the staff. My husband and I had such a great time, completely carefree, because they took care of everything.

City Winery served as the perfect backdrop to our Manhattan wedding. My husband and I spent a lot of time researching and visiting locations in the city and City Winery fit all our needs.Sent on 04/17/2015
We worked with Emily who was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Her level or responsiveness was always impressive, even when we were still more than 6 months out from our wedding date, if I emailed her with a question she would always get back to me right away. As a bride, I valued that and appreciated it so much.
We held both our ceremony and reception for about 115 people at City Winery. We had a bridal suite option at City Winery, but opted to get ready across the street at Trump Soho, instead - which was a very nice location.
Our ceremony started at 6:00 in the main concert area, then all our guests moved into the winery (with the large steel barrels) and the restaurant for cocktail hour while the venue switched over the main room from ceremony to dinner/reception. The whole process was seamless and turned out beautifully.
We served a seated dinner with salad, two entree choices, a pasta course and mini passed desserts. Our guests absolutely raved about the food. One of our entrees was the lamb shoulder and I've had two people ask if I can get the recipe! My husband and I thought the food was better on the day of our wedding than at our tasting, even. I was very impressed.
We also had open bar all night and went with the upgraded wine choices. We worked with Tali to chose our wines and she was super-knowledgeable and helpful.
Overall City Winery is a top notch event space with high-end, delicious food and their weddings are beautiful. We had a live band (45 Riots) instead of a DJ, since City Winery is traditionally a live music space and the sound and acoustics were perfect. The staff is friendly and attentive. I couldn't have asked for anything more for my wedding day.

City Winery 10 Year Anniversary Party
Suzanna at City Winery made planning our 10 Year Anniversary party easy, fun, and worry free! My husband and I have always loved the venue after having gone to other events here in the past, and so we knew immediately that the setting and vibe were perfect for the intimate cocktail party we had in mind. It was made even more beautiful with the flowers we ordered from one of City Winery's recommended florists, and the food and wine offerings were exceptional. Suzanna and staff even handled the extra decor I had brought in a few days prior so I literally didn't have to set up or clean up anything before or after the event. The service from the staff was impeccable too and everyone was so nice and helpful to our family and friends. We really could not have asked for a more wonderful experience, and in a lot of ways it was more fun than our actual wedding! We would definitely host another event here again without question! Thank you to Suzanna and everyone at City Winery for making the night so memorable!Sent on 11/18/2018

Unique Venue, Easy to Work With, Perfect Day
City Winery was the first place we looked at for our wedding reception and after touring a bunch of other places, City Winery was a clear winner, it truly had everything we wanted! The staff is lovely to work with; we worked with both Alienor to start and then mostly Erin throughout planning. They were very quick to answer emails (and I sent a lot) and the planning process went very smooth. Erin made sure that my vision was executed exactly how I imagined it day of and the space looked stunning. The food was excellent, the staff day of was attentive and our guests still rave about what a great time they had and how unique the venue was. Our photos came out amazing too; definitely opt for lights above the dance floor! They gave us a few options for a cake and we ended up hiring City Sweets; Deborah made a beautiful cake and it tasted really good too! We extended the wedding late night to the Barrel Room and it was a seamless after party transition. I can't thank Erin and City Winery enough for executing our wedding perfectly.Sent on 06/19/2019

We just got married at City Winery in June and it was such a wonderful experience due to working with Suzanna!! She was such a pleasure to work with - extremely responsive, flexible, cheery, and creative! My husband and I knew we didn't want to have overly planned out wedding (had been to 12 weddings in 2016), and when I look back on the day it was exactly what we wanted / needed - a gathering of friends and family all in one place with great food, drinks, and music.Sent on 08/20/2017
We were paying for most of the wedding ourselves, so we really wanted to ensure our vision was carried out and Suzanna helped achieve all that and more. We started with a short and sweet ceremony in the main room and then guests moved into the bar room for cocktail hour while the amazing CW staff quickly turned the main room into our reception area. Everyone (bartenders, waitstaff, bridal attendant) was super professional and lovely throughout the whole day (you have the space for the whole day, which is AMAZING).
Really couldn't have asked for a better time!

City Winery was unequivocally THE BEST. The space has a sophisticated and urban, yet rustic feel with great lighting (which is included) and, because it's usually a live music venue, a great sound system. Because it is a real restaurant most days of the week, the place doesn't require a whole lot of decor, which is a great time- and money-saver, and the food is excellent. Not excellent-for-catering… it's legitimately excellent. The wine, needless to say, is so much better than the wholesale stuff most other venues/caterers will pour, and it flows freely throughout the night. And the rest of the bar was tops. Everything about this venue was simply spot on.Sent on 09/16/2014
But what really resonates with me weeks later was how absolutely awesome their staff was/is. From the first meeting to the end of the big night, the event coordinators were friendly, professional, flexible, understanding and altogether wonderful. The staff were all great. They definitely know what they are doing there, and they went above and beyond, making the entire process seamless, worry-free and of course, memorable. Everyone at our wedding had a spectacular time, and so much credit is due to City Winery. We've already started joking we want to throw a wedding every year, and frankly, we would never throw one anywhere else. It's not the cheapest place, but they don't nickel-and-dime, and trust, they will make you feel like you are getting every penny's worth.
