My new wife and I were beyond thrilled to nab New Leaf for our wedding reception (with the ceremony just a few feet away on Linden Terrace), and were over the moon at how it all turned out! Maegan Hoepelman guided us through every moment and decision leading up to our big day, with joy and laser efficiency. The food was AMAZING, from wine to dessert, and our guests are STILL emailing us, gushing about the short rib! The whole team at New Leaf was amazing, and the service was exceptional. It was a perfect wedding, and we will remember New Leaf's part in it always. Thank you, team New Leaf!!!! You are the BEST!!!❤️

We recently had our wedding at New Leaf and I could not have been happier with the experience. Cathy Mosomillo, the event coordinator, was great to work with – we didn’t have the negative experiences that some reviewers have described below. We treated her with kindness and respect and received the same treatment in return. In fact, I felt that Cathy bent over backwards to make us happy. Her email style may be a little short, but I think that’s because she’s a busy lady. The staff at New Leaf is so considerate, the food unique and marvelous – guests loved that they could order off the menu at the reception almost as if they were at an actual restaurant (because they were). And, of course, how can you beat the setting of Fort Tryon Park? You honestly can’t, especially in the spring months. There are flowers, greenery – it is such a happy place. We did eventually hire an event coordinator who did a lot of the interfacing with Cathy, but that was largely because we just didn’t want to deal with details and potential vendor problems on the big day. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique, reasonably-priced New York wedding. You can’t go wrong here.

When my son and his fiancé began to plan their wedding they visited and met with Cathy Mosomillo. They narrowed down their choices to two different venues and then took my husband, the mother of the bride and myself to visit both. They told us about their hesitation about the New Leaf due to some of the bad press. After meeting with Cathy, we were thoroughly impressed yet still wary but thought the New Leaf met all the dreams they had for their event. The beauty of the park that surrounds the New Leaf, could not be matched and the New Leaf was chosen for their wedding on November 7th, 2015. Over the next eleven months we found Cathy to be nothing short on professionalism and right on target with every question and concern we all had. She provided wonderful recommendations, and great contacts that we used for additional things we wanted to add for the evening. She was responsive to our requests and our emails. On the day of the event, she was there to oversee that everything went right as it should. My son and his fiancé did all of the planning and per Cathy's advice, they made great choices and we thought that they did not skimp on anything. We thought the New Leaf was the most wonderful place to have their wedding. It was a dream come true for them and our guests who came from all over the country were blown away by the venue. . I know each and every wedding is the very most important day in the lives of the bride and groom and their families. We have one more unmarried child and if she chose to have her wedding at the New Leaf I would be more than pleased and could only hope that Cathy would be there to provide guidance and advise. My husband and I have done a lot of entertaining over the years and have attended numerous events as well. The New Leaf is lucky to have someone like Cathy.

I had my wedding reception at New Leaf June 6th 2015. I couldn't say enough good things about my experience with them. Cathy is a delight to work with. The day of, my florist basically dumped all of my floral arrangements and left. Cathy and the staff turned the entire place around for me (which was not part of their job) in 1 hour. I'm talking about a truck load of flowers here. I was amazed! The food was fresh and they accommodated any of my guests with food restrictions no extra charge. I hired Meghan as my day of planner. She was great as well. I recommend doing that ladies.. Really helped relieve me of a lot of stress. People still tell me it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever been to. The grounds surrounding the cafe are so beautiful. Especially in the spring and early summer. The only thing that I would like to warn potential brides is be mindful of the time. The park closes at 12am and it's not like you can just hail a cab in fort tryon park. Plan ahead and arrange transportation. I figured uber and calling a car service was enough.. It wasn't. Everyone was having such a great time. Midnight creep up so fast and I had a wave of 100 people all standing outside waiting for cars to come. Plan ahead and and avoid this. Expecially if you want to get married on a Saturday. Overall, we were very happy we went with this venue. Best of luck! Chelsea

My husband and I had a truly special wedding at New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park in early May. The weather held for us and we were lucky enough to have the ceremony outside in nearby Linden Terrace, followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing under the clear tent at New Leaf. The setting was gorgeous and easily accessible, which were our two main criteria when finding a site, but the food turned out to be phenomenal! Portions were generous, service was attentive, plating was gorgeous, and we're still getting complements. My friend put it best, that New Leaf is "Stone Barns, for people in the know". I totally agree, and my husband and I could not have been happier with how the evening played out.

We had a fantastic wedding experience at the New Leaf. Tiffany and team were unbelievable, and the venue is spectacular. Setting is gorgeous, and the food and staff are first class. I'd recommend 100 times out of 100.

I was skeptical to see most vendors on this site rated 5 stars. New Leaf, however, deserves no less. The value is above what any other vendor could have offered. Tiffany took care of our piecemeal questions efficiently, doing her best to work with the Parks Department when we learned the permit for our date was taken, and entirely gracious in changing our date to accommodate permit availability. While inconvenient for staff, New Leaf was also accommodating when I wanted to wait until the last minute to decide if the wedding would be held indoors (a free option for rainy days). Unfortunately, the rain kept us inside, but it could not have been under better management. Tiffany required vendors to work directly with her on setting up (rather than approaching me). Our DJ showed up with extra equipment...the band was late...all was managed professionally without adding questions, decisions, or stress to our day. Tiffany knows her venue and truly takes command - exactly what we needed. I was told I should have seen my aunt's face when she realized there was a full meal after numerous, exceptional, appetizers. You select three entrées on top of a vegetarian dish, and guests choose what they feel like that evening. We received numerous compliments on what guests described as a quality restaurant meal. You would never guess the food was prepared for a large party. The best filet mignon my cousin ever had. The staff, many working at New Leaf for years, were professional and on top of everything. Upon hearing that my friend had a temporary dairy restriction (it doesn't agree with her little one), the head chef walked out to discuss what requirements she had and which options they could make friendly for her. Who does that? Simply above and beyond. Only downside is that New Leaf cannot control wedding permits in the park (nor do they have access to the database to see what is or isn't available in advance)...not much they can do about that.

Thank you so much for your kind words! It was an absolute pleasure working with you throughout the planning process and a joy to be part of the big day. We hope to see you at New Leaf again soon!

My overall experience with New Leaf was excellent. Their venue coordinator Tiffany was extremely helpful throughout the whole process: she was always calm, responsive, patient, and nice. Booking Process: make an appointment with Tiffany and she'll show you all the possible ceremony sites within the park, the cocktail hour, reception areas and answer all your questions patiently. Book early! Food Tasting: unbelievably good. All yummy and they give you a doggie bag in case you can't finish (most likely you won't, b/c they give you so much. Planning Process: Tiffany is very responsive and the venue is very relaxed and laid back (they let us borrow some of their furnitures, our dogs..) Wedding Day: All the staffs were willing to help with the set up. It's still a restaurant so each table had a wait staff table service (guests were able to order drinks with their waiter without having to go to the bar).

We are extremely happy that we chose to have our wedding at New Leaf! The location was beautiful, the venue/set-up (we had a clear tent) was gorgeous, the food (especially the duck!) was amazing, and the service impeccable! Tiffany and her team were truly professionals and catered to us and all of our guests. We are so thankful, because of them we had an amazing time and truly enjoyed our once-in-a-lifetime day with our friends and family. All of our guests, from the young to the old, enjoyed the evening - especially the atmosphere, drinks, and food! We got nothing but great feedback and compliments. From the start Tiffany was very friendly, easy to work with, and responsive. We had to pick from a few venues and we knew New Leaf was the one immediately after we met with her. Tiffany was also very assuring and patient, which helped made the planning process easier and smoother. We 100% recommend New Leaf, both as a restaurant and definitely as a wedding venue, to anyone and everyone. But book early, a place like this gets booked up quickly! You will not be disappointed!

Thanks, Nao and Tom! It was a pleasure working with you both in creating the wedding of your dreams. It means so much to our service staff, kitchen team and myself to read about the highlights of your wedding reception with us! Hope to see you again soon.

This is a review for New Leaf, but especially for Tiffany Hogan, the event coordinator at the New Leaf. I would love to see Tiffany organize everything in my life. Nothing is a problem. She is calm, professional, charming and one of the nicest people I have ever met. She has been at New Leaf for over 5 years and it shows as the whole operation runs like clockwork. It was the first venue that we visited and we basically wanted to write her a cheque five minutes after meeting her. I would wake up in the night with a million questions, shoot her an email, and a few hours later have a calm email back with everything answered. We had a smaller wedding with 56 people and the venue was perfect size. We did our ceremony on Linden Terrace and then the reception in New Leaf. Every guest, and I mean, EVERY guest, commented on the food and this was a pretty good foodie crowd. We literally had people running up to us when we walked in saying that it was the best food they have had in ages, not just the best wedding food, the best food, period! Since it is a restaurant, everything is made to order and deliciously fresh. Aside from the food, the service is impeccable. The same staff work at the restaurant, so there is no problem training or coordinating the staff. They were charming, unobtrusive and really elegant in their work. Lovely little touches like having waiters wait outside for all the guests with cocktails and wine (including the groom and myself, who came in much later) or my FIL asking about the wine and the waitress offering to steam the label off for him were done with no fuss, just perfect style. Not a drink glass was empty for a minute, or a napkin accidentally dropped to the floor before being replaced by this stellar team. I honestly have woken up every day since my wedding and been so grateful that I met Tiffany and her team at New Leaf and feel so blessed that we were able to have our wedding there and have nothing but good memories of that day.

We had the best wedding ever, and our guests thought so too. If you go to the New Leaf for dinner and can envision your wedding there, you should do it. Fort Tryon park is one of the gems of New York City, and this restaurant is the perfect compliment to the setting. The food there is amazing, and the food at the reception was no different! The quality of food was a major deciding factor for us in selecting our venue. Again, our guests are still talking about how delicious all the menu items were. We opted for a cocktail-style reception with passed hors d'oeuvres, a pasta station, an antipasto table and a carving station, but I'm sure a sit-down dinner would be amazing as well. Our welcome drinks were lovely and the whole night was a success. Tiffany, the event coordinator is organized, professional and smart, she will make sure your event goes of without a hitch. Her suggestions were always right on and her taste level is really high; she understood our sensibility and aesthetic as a couple, and made sure that was reflected in the venue. You will be in good hands with Tiffany, and you can't go wrong with the beautiful location.
