Arthur and his team were amazing. I can't imagine anything that we would have changed. It is the most beautiful venue and the level of service and quality - including amazing food - could not have been better! The Bryant Park Grill is truly a gem in New York City offering outdoor space as well as a beautiful interior. We are just thrilled and can't thank the staff at BPG enough for making our wedding so special. xoxo, Beth & Danny

Our daughter's wedding this past weekend at Bryant Park Grill exceeded all expectations. Arthur Tarzy and Tom Ferretti were amazing to work with! They made the planning process fun and stress free, and everything went seamlessly the day of the wedding. They are true professionals who strove to make our event everything we could have hoped for. Other venues may have great food or great service or a great location, but Bryant Park Grill has it all. Our 175 guests raved about the exceptional food and thought the venue itself was beyond compare. Our ceremony was on the rooftop terrace, the cocktail hour, dancing and dessert were in the dining room, and the seated dinner was in the tented garden terrace. Having all three areas meant that nothing needed to be torn down and then reconfigured, which made transitioning from one part of the evening to the other seamless. We highly recommend Bryant Park Grill for anyone's special event. It is a truly beautiful, amazing venue and the food, from appetizer through dessert, was outstanding. Everyone was an absolute joy to work with and always responsive to any questions we had during the planning process.

This was the most perfect NYC venue in every way. Tom and Kristi were peerless in orchestrating a magical evening. Everything sparkled and the food was divine. Staff was wonderful. Yes, we had a vision, but they executed in spades. Can't praise this venue enough.

We held our wedding reception at the Bryant Park Grill (BPG) in September 2017 and we absolutely, highly recommend it! The other reviewers' are 100% right----Kristi Ohlin, Tom Ferretti, and the rest of their staff were incredibly helpful, on top of the planning process, and really committed to making our reception the best possible. Our 150 reception was perfect---we held cocktails on the upstairs roof so our guests were able to be outside on a perfect summer evening and then people went down to the main dinning room for dinner and dancing. The food and service were impeccable. It felt intimate and really special! In looking back at the wedding process, I think having our reception at BPG was one of our best decisions for two reasons: 1) BPG works with you to figure out how to make your wedding special and 2) BPG executes a phenomenal evening. We didn't have a wedding planner and I didn't feel like I needed one because Kristi provided all the information I needed and was responsive to all the questions I had especially when things started to turn crazy in the wedding process. She was so calm and kind in giving me answers to all of the ridiculous questions. This might not seem important now but once you get into the thick of things and you are balancing conversations with several different vendors and personalities, it matters and it really differentiates good vendors from the bad. At the wedding reception, Tom and his staff were so attentive and ran the evening perfectly. He had absolute control over the evening's schedule and everything ran smoothly because of him. So, if you're interested in having your wedding in NYC for 150 people, you should really consider BPG.

We had our wedding in August 19th, 2017. This venue is amazing and very unique. It is a garden/outdoorsy feel, but with sky scrappers and skyline around you. The value is very good when compared to other venues as well. First, Kristi Ohlin was a gem every step of the way. She was very accommodating, attentive, professional and most of all, patient. She also helped with ideas and experienced vendors for the space. The space was spectacular. We had our ceremony indoors, cocktail hour upstairs, dinner in the garden, and dancing in the indoor space. The food was amazing and all the guests were amazed by the level of service they got. I'd recommend the duck station for cocktail hour, it was a total hit. Thank you Kristi and Bryant Park Grill for making our wedding!

The setting was lovely, right in the heart of Manhattan, overlooking the park and the skyscrapers. The food was Michelin quality, The restaurant the core elegant as can be.The service was timely and efficient. And Tom and Alex could not of been more Genial and accommodating in the way they went about managing the Wedding. I highly recommend the Bryant Park Grill.

My husband and I had the best experience at Bryant Park Grill! Tom and Kristi made the whole process seamless, and we always felt like we were in great hands. Our guests repeatedly came up to us during and after the wedding to say how wonderful and classically New York the event was, and they also remarked on the top notch service. The food was delicious, the staff was beyond friendly, and Tom was there to make sure everything went off without a hitch (which it did!). He made sure the timing of everything was just right--from opening the doors at the ceremony and getting the bridal party in the right places to the band's introduction to the pace of the meal. It was absolute perfection--we couldn't have asked for a better wedding (or imagined one). I'm so happy we chose this as our venue! Also (bonus): It's located in the perfect spot to take photos. We had our shots in the park in front of the fountain, on the steps of the public library, and out by the lampposts that are just outside the restaurant (which is covered in ivy--also pretty in pics!). I also recommend if you choose this venue, have Vanessa at Verde Flowers do your flowers--she was so kind, so friendly, and so easy to work with, and she already does the flowers for the restaurant anyway so it was 100% seamless, and the flowers were beautiful. We can't thank Tom and Kristi enough!

We had our wedding reception for 150 people at Bryant Park Grill and it was the best night of our lives - we could not have had a more perfect venue or enjoyable planning experience than we had with BPG. Like every bride who has worked with Kristi and Tom, we were blown away by the level of customer service. I live in Washington, DC, so most of my planning was done via email and phone with Kristi, who seemed to respond to all of my emails within minutes - even when she was on vacation! I am a very Type A bride, and Kristi was patient, kind, and calming, never showing annoyance with my hundreds (literally) of questions. Kristi provided guidance and input on everything from vendor options (especially helpful since I was not in NYC) to food to event flow. Our menu tasting was a wonderful event on its own, and BPG was also very accommodating of vendor walk throughs (and walkthroughs when I was visiting and just wanted to see the gorgeous venue one more time). We bought out the entire venue, and had cocktail hour on the roof, dinner in the tented garden, and dancing and dessert buffet inside the grill. It was perfection in every way. Tom, the event coordinator, was spectacular. He and Kristi are a seamless team, and went above and beyond to ensure that every special request and small detail we had was executed flawlessly - from flip flops for the dance floor to moving flower centerpieces from the garden to the grill after dinner, to the sparkler send off. We also tip our hats to the chef and staff, who created an incredible meal, great drinks (including a watermelon margarita slushy specialty cocktail), and superb customer service experience. There is literally not a single thing I would have changed about the event space, service, or planning experience. Bryant Park Grill was a dream location with a dream team. Thank you Kristi, Tom, and colleagues!

We looked at a number of venues to have our wedding in New York City, but it was Kristi Ohlin and her team that made us feel like we would be taken care of. No one gave us the feeling that they truly cared like Kristi did. She and Tom more than exceeded our expectations for our wedding in August 2016, We booked the entire venue for our wedding of 100 people. We had the cocktail hour on the roof, dinner and the dessert buffet in the grill and cigars and a photo booth in the garden. Our guests cannot stop talking about how great our wedding was at the Bryant Park Grill. Kristi was great in working with us and all of our vendors. She was always professional and extremely detailed and organized. She and Tom took care of every single detail including the bride and groom cocktails, the menu, happy birthday for my nephew and the groom’s son, sparkling cider for my nephews and step son. The service was wonderful the night of the event. The event flowed perfectly from the cocktail hour to dinner and dancing to the cake. For the cocktail hour, the hor d’oeurves kept coming out and our guests never had an empty glass. The food was a delicious. We had additional desserts brought in and Tom had them set up in a beautiful display. The Bryant Park Grill has very colorful chairs and we decided to go with lots of color for our flowers to play off the chairs. Also, we had votive and hurricane candles placed all along the windows for a very romantic feeling.

When we first made the decision to get married in New York City, we cast a wide net to find the ideal location for our ceremony and reception. Near the top of our wish list was the Bryant Park Grill but like several of our other “dream” locations, I didn’t have high expectations we could make the math work. However, after first contacting and then meeting with the catering manager, Kristi Ohlin, we realized that not only could we make it work, but that we had found someone who was ready, willing and able to help us put together what I can only describe as an enchanting and magical evening with our friends and loved ones. We held our ceremony upstairs on the second floor roof garden and the reception downstairs in the main dining room. The beauty of the gardens, the flowers and great lawn of Bryant Park were an extension of the event spaces making both feel larger and grander than they would have in any other location. The food was amazing. Kristi invited us to a special menu tasting where we were able to sample several different salads, appetizers, entrees and of course, desserts, along with a variety of house wines to help us come up with the perfect combination for the evening. As our event date approached, Kristi was helpful in keeping us on track with a gentle nudge here and there when needed. She was always quick to answer any questions or concerns we had and let us plan a wedding with enough structure to keep the evening moving but without feeling like we were forced to follow a rigid or more traditional path. On the night of our wedding, Kristi, her colleague Tom Ferretti (our special on-site coordinator) and the entire Bryant Park Grill staff executed flawlessly. Orders were taken quickly and discreetly. The food was plated and presented beautifully. Drink glasses were never empty for long. In short, we were well taken care of and all of our guests had a wonderful time. Thank you Kristi, Tom, and everyone at BPG!

Bryant Park Grill was an excellent venue for our wedding day. Kristi and Tom were so great with everything from the very beginning. As a venue you will be hard pressed to find another place with such a great vibe of New York, in the middle of the city convenient to get to and beautiful for photos. The staff also worked so well with all of vendors, it just so happened that they all had known each other and had nothing but good things to say about everyone we had chosen and vice versa. The space had a great flow from the wedding ceremony on the roof to the cocktail hour also on the roof; we had chosen against the garden because it felt too public but it never felt over crowded. The staff kept us on time and had the bridal party on a good schedule; I never questioned our decision to not have a day of coordinator. The food was great from the cocktail hour to dinner and the gorgeous dessert table everything was perfect (even better than the tasting we had). The drinks were delicious as well, we had planned to have a wedding cocktail, a French75, it was classic refreshing and perfect every time. The outside of the building and the roof twinkling with lights that evening and even with the light rain everything was just absolutely beautiful, everything you would want and expect. Thank you so much to the team at Bryant Park Grill for helping make our wedding day so special!

We held our wedding at Bryant Park Grill in March 2016, and it was a wonderful experience! The restaurant was inviting, elegant, and fun, and we are so happy that we chose it as our venue. BPG is beautiful, with three spaces (dining room, patio, and rooftop) and various options for organizing your event depending on the season. We held our ceremony and cocktail hour in their beautiful clear-tented patio, looking out into Bryant Park (so lovely as the sun was setting), and our reception/party in the main dining room. The planning process was incredibly smooth thanks to their wonderful staff. Kristi Ohlin coordinated our event and she was amazing to work with - professional, quick to respond to questions, and so helpful with her advice. She truly cared about making our event successful and personal. Our day-of coordinator Tom was a great presence on the day of the wedding and his entire staff was excellent. Kristi and Tom coordinated with all of our vendors as well, and they made it possible for us to feel so comfortable and confident that they would take care of every detail! They were a pleasure to work with. The food was delicious and the chef was so accommodating of our requests to modify the menu to be kosher style. We loved hosting our wedding in a restaurant setting and our guests raved about the food and the fun mini dessert bar. We can't recommend Bryant Park Grill more highly for a wedding or any event. Thanks to Kristi and the entire staff for your amazing work and for making our wedding so perfect!
