The perfect venue for a quintessential Manhattan wedding
By rmg on 11/28/2011
My husband and I got married at Guastavino's in September, and our experience with the venue and its staff was impeccable. From start to finish, the team was helpful, thoughtful, responsible, and fun to work with. Whenever a question arose, the answer from John and Marisa was always, "yes, we'll find a way to make that work." All our vendors were very complementary about their experience working with the venue's team. When planning a large wedding, what more can you ask for? We used a kosher caterer so I'm unable to speak to the food, but our guests are still raving about Guastavino's signature champagne and pomegranate cocktails. The venue itself provided every bit of old Manhattan glamour that we'd hoped for at our wedding, and our guests are still talking about the venue when we see them. It was a perfect day, made so by the stunning venue and the service they provide.
Perfect for an event!!

We rented Guastavinos for a fundraiser and we had an excellent experience. The Chef and the food selections were excellent - the french oreo dessert was divine. The Banquest Director, wait staff and management were professional and on top of everything the week preceeding our event and the day of!! Everything was set up and ready to go PRIOR to the prep time which was a big help to our staff. The doorman was so welcoming to all of our guests and the AV co. was professional and knowledgable. The space was exciting and different so the same sit down dinner from the year before did not seem the same!! I would highly recommend this event venue.
