My husband and I were married here back in August 2017, but we booked our wedding at Penthouse 808 way before the ballroom was even complete! We could not have been happier with the final product. Our ceremony and rehearsal dinner were up on the rooftop - the most beautiful views! Our guests were gushing about them! Our very large wedding reception was in the brand new ballroom, which is absolutely stunning, and super modern. While I can go on and on about the beautiful space and even more amazing food (AMAZING food), I have to say Elyse and Dolores were the absolute best. Elyse was with us the entire ride, answering questions and updating us along the way. She was beyond professional, helpful, and quick to respond. We had started looking at the venue about 2 years before our wedding actually happened, so by the time it ended it felt as if we were old friends! The weekend of our wedding (we also had our rehearsal dinner at the venue) Elyse and Dolores treated us like royalty and made sure we had everything we needed at every moment. I cannot recommend Penthouse 808 enough!!! We love you Elyse & Dolores!!

The team at the Ravel Hotel/Penthouse 808 made planning our wedding as easy as can be. We had both our ceremony and reception in the Penthouse 808 space and you would have thought we spent far more than we did. We, along with our guests, were beyond impressed with the venue, the food, and the décor. Everyone had a blast celebrating our big day. Betsy and Delores were attentive, accommodating, creative, and beyond helpful in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding day. The team worked seamlessly with us (the grooms) and our wedding coordinator, Melinda—who happened to be LA-based—to ensure a wedding to remember. The same can be said for their coordination and collaboration with our photographers, DJ, and photo booth vendors. The day of our ceremony and reception went off without a flaw. The team worked hand-in-hand with our wedding coordinator to make sure everything thing was buttoned up—timeline, vendor arrivals and setup, and the flow from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to dinner and dancing. The view of the east side of Manhattan was the perfect backdrop for the evening. The Penthouse space is larger than it seems and accommodated our ceremony and reception perfectly. When guests returned to the main space from cocktail hour (hosted on the upper level) they were stunned with the elegant transformation of the room. Lastly, it is important to note that as a gay couple we felt 100% comfortable with the entire Ravel team—from management, the events team, wait staff, and hotel staff. They “get it” and made us feel not only welcomed, but that we belonged. For context it is important to note that we got married on October 14, 2016 (a sunny and average autumn Friday with highs in the mid-60s, lows in the mid-50s) and our guest count was 160 (the space would have fit comfortably 200).

At first I admit I was a bit skeptical of Penthouse808 based on reviews I had read, but I am so glad I took a chance. I was searching for a place (and we visited A LOT of venues) where we could host a true "New York City" wedding and the Ravel Hotel's rooftop with its breath-taking views could not have been more perfect. Penthouse808 has the full package - amazing food, an accommodating wedding coordinator (although there were a few unforeseen bumps in the road, Karina was great and helped us through it all) and an in-house DJ who crafted the perfect playlist to keep the party going all night long. We had our ceremony there, followed by cocktail hour, reception and after-party (on weekends the venue turns into a club at 11:30). Our guests took countless photos of the NYC skyline and gushed over the food all night. Our cocktail hour consisted of passed appetizers (meatballs, risotto balls, lobster rolls, chicken & waffles, and spicy tuna, to name a few) and 3 stations (Mediterranean, Pasta and Flatbread), which we paid a little extra for but was so worth it. Even my food-obsessed Italian-American family was impressed! Then we kicked the night off with a tomato watermelon salad and choice of entree (short rib, salmon and mushroom risotto). The wedding ended with coffee and lots of dessert (our wedding cake, a cheesecake and berries & whip were passed). Everything was set up according to plan, the timeline was followed to a tee and everyone had a blast. Thank you Karina, Elyse, Benny, DJ Rolo and the rest of the Penthouse808 staff for making our special day absolutely perfect. One other benefit to note: since the venue is at the rooftop of a hotel, they offer accommodations for guests and you can stay in a suite after a long night of partying! Karina also set aside space at their quaint bar downstairs (The Yard) for guests who arrived early. If you don't end up choosing Penthouse808, I definitely recommend going there for dinner! It's an amazing experience.

Penthouse 808 saved the day for us! After 6+months of unprofessional and terrible communication with our planned rehearsal dinner venue we canceled and booked with Penthouse about a week before our date. They were incredibly kind and helpful, and their package was such a better value too! Our guests got so much food and everything was delicious. Benny and his staff were also amazing at helping us dodge and stay comfortable/dry during a hurricane rolling through their open air lounge. We had been to the restaurant several times last year and were confident our guests would enjoy their unique cuisine and amazing atmosphere and city views. We are so happy we switched and can't wait to go back soon!

I couldn't ask for a better wedding. The venue was amazing, the view was amazing and the staff was amazing too. Our wedding coordinator Natassa helped us through every thing step by step and we felt at home whenever we had a meeting. She was on top of everything and made sure we had the wedding that we dreamed of. I would absolutely redo this night over again.

There are so many wonderful things I want to say about Ravel; I don't even know where to start! So I'll start with the top - Natassa. Natassa is the event coordinator at Ravel. If the view and the food haven't already sold you on this place (and truly, those alone probably could), then Natassa will. She is committed, friendly, detail-oriented, and just plain awesome. It's almost like you get a free wedding planner with the package. She loves what she does and it shows. We signed our contract with Ravel a year out, and Natassa answered TONS of emails, hosted all our visits to the site (and I stopped by a lot!), and always made us feel important and welcome. The actual wedding was true perfection, carried out impeccably by Natassa and her staff. Natassa never just answered yes when you asked if something was possible. She would answer YES, AND... top it with something you hadn't even considered possible. You guys, have your wedding here. Did I mention it's affordable? How I found this price in New York, and got this result, is still incredible to me. So lucky!

We were at the end of our rope looking for a venue in or around NYC that was amazing and fit our budget.... I began the search ALL over again after being completely disappointed with other venues. We went to Penthouse808 and met with Natassa. She was SO accommodating and positive from the beginning. She is high energy and thinks outside of the box to make EVERYTHING work. The communication is so quick and we booked the venue within a week or so, had an AMAZING tasting and they NAILED the food. My husband and I are both foodies so the menu was VERY important. They worked with us to shift things around and make even the menu personal. We went to the venue 3 or 4 times, with siblings, parents, and to do walk throughs of the timeline. Natassa, Meagan and Katrina are all SO responsive and professional. Not to mention amazing ladies that we will continue to hang out with even though the wedding is over! Did we mention the view??? We had an amazing evening wedding with perfect weather (even if not, we had a game plan) Our guests were all blown away with the city skyline, the bridge, the lights... Our friends and family are still talking about it! We would recommend Penthouse808 to anyone looking for a seamless planning experience with the utmost professionalism and flexibility. Thanks Penthouse808 & Team! Xox Michael & Sara

We had a wonderful and positive experience with the staff and events coordinator. Natassa was very patient and always took the time to listen to our ideas. She made great suggestions and always had good ideas to share. We enjoyed every moment of our wedding planning, from our first meeting with Natassa to the day of our wedding. Our guests enjoyed the food and drinks, and had a great time. We definitely recommend Penthouse808. The view was breath-taking, especially when the sun is going down and at night. We hope to return soon.

This is not one of those I'm gonna give 5 stars to be nice type reviews. This place knocked it out of the park and then some. You name it, they nailed it. Natassa is the best, the food is fantastic and the view alone is worth the price of admission. We had a slew of people over the last month tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!
