We had our wedding on April 22, 2017 at Maritime Parc. It truly was our dream wedding. I knew from the moment I walked into Maritime Parc that this was the venue to get married in. Elizabeth was extremely friendly and helpful at our first meeting. She assisted us along with... Read More Alexis the entire year.

Everything went perfectly, the venue was beautiful and the food got RAVE reviews from all of our guests. The view of the NYC skyline is breathtaking! I would highly recommend Maritime Parc!!!

Where to begin! Maritime Parc is a phenomenal venue. To start, yes, it is a little pricey, but trust us when we say you get what you pay for. First of all, the service was outstanding. Starting with Elizabeth in the booking/finalizing process to Alexis and the event night... Read More staff. They were all very professional, courteous, and responsive to all of our questions. We brought a lot of boxes of homemade decor (centerpieces, signs, etc.) and hoped for the best. Martime Parc not only pulled it off, but they went above and beyond. Secondly, the food was unreal. The cocktail hour is no normal cocktail hour. You will be getting well presented (seriously they looked like food network Hors d'oeuvres) and great tasting food. Then the dinner was even better. We had multiple comments on the beef tenderloin being the best steak guests have ever had, anywhere. All positive feedback on the salmon and chicken too! Finally, the cake was just delicious. We went with the almond cake and dark chocolate mousse filling, and it was very flavorful. On top of all this, the bridal attendant was fantastic, making sure we always had a drink in our hand and always had our food on our plate. It was just wonderfully accommodating. Finally, the location can't be beat. The views are as advertised. Views from cocktail hour and the reception are breathtaking, with a beautiful outdoor area on both floors. Even if you happen to catch a bad weather day, you are so close to the city your view will not be impeded. We cannot recommend this venue enough and cannot say enough good things about it. So much so, we wish we could do it again! Highly recommended!!!!!!

Where do I begin? Maritime Parc is a stunning venue with breathtaking views of NYC. When I first visited, I knew it was the place for me. I absolutely love the open space, clean lines, tasteful design and beautiful architecture. Each floor has plenty of character and... Read More extraordinary views. The exposed wooden beams, huge windows, elegant staircase and unique ceilings are just a few of the notable features. The layout is perfect for photos. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Elizabeth did a great job handling the finances/contract. She was pleasant, detail-oriented, reasonable and accommodating. Alexis did excellent work on the logistics/planning. She was also always pleasant to work with and responsive to my needs. She was very thorough, helpful and organized. There were additional coordinators on the wedding day. They satisfied my every need before and during the wedding. Everyone at the venue went above and beyond to ensure I would have a marvelous wedding. The food was delicious. The menu was sophisticated with plenty of diverse options. We were delighted with the variety that was certain to please our guests. The cocktail hour was a big hit. The dinner menu was exquisite.

A coworker sent me to look at the Maritime Parc for our wedding, and I could not be more thankful. When we first looked at Maritime Parc, we were certain we wanted to use a South Asian caterer to reflect our Pakistani-American fusion marriage, but after our celebration dinner... Read More (an amazing multi-course tasting menu complete with wine pairings), we scrapped that idea and had some of the best wedding food I've ever encountered. It was easy to negotiate a price-per-person that worked with our budget, but also reflected the quality that Maritime Parc provides. The guests were stuffed at cocktail hour with amazing apps, had a delicious meal following, and topped off with "the best wedding cake I've ever had" (direct quote from more than 10 guests!). Working with Symphonie & Elizabeth to iron out the details was not only super easy, but really delightful. They answered all of my questions, gave me the attention I needed, and shared advice. They also went with the flow of my switching to their in-house catering a shortly before the wedding. The day of, Rita saw to my every need. She was always near by with more food, drinks, or a genuine smile. She also kept my husband & his boisterous groomsmen as tame as she could, along with my bridesmaids hydrated and warm. Lauren ensured the ceremony started with enough people present but not too late, everyone walked down the aisle at the right time, dinner came out at the perfect time, and the night flowed magically. As my husband and I had experienced at my coworker's wedding, the staff was attentive to our guests. My two complaints: 1) one of the bars was frequently unmanned at the reception, but it seemed table wine service was not lacking, 2) we weren't able to get into the Aviary for group shots. IMHO, those both aren't that big of a deal. We got good shots, and no one went without a drink. We're now enjoying some left over appetizers and cake (we couldn't wait a year...and don't care if we regret it!).

The day of was when the staff truly shined. The setup of our DYI projects and accessories was flawless. The attendants and servers were extremely attentive – even noticing when the bride and groom required hydration during the day-of insanity. The day-of coordinators were on-point with all our cues and schedules. Even when we did have an issue – slight confusion with the table numbers and placement – the staff was quick to find a remedy.

We had our wedding on August 9, 2015 in the Aviary Room- both ceremony and reception. We couldn't have been any happier with Maritime Parc! As we live abroad in Australia, the only contact we had with Maritime Parc was over email with Elizabeth and Symphonie- both of whom were... Read More very responsive. Elizabeth recommended a few wedding planner to us- one of whom we used and loved- Vision Entertainment! We picked Maritime Parc as we wanted a modern venue and the views added to its benefit. We took our pictures in Liberty State Park and had a lot of guests coming from overseas who loved it. We had our ceremony outside on the balcony- there was no outside noise from the boats or the other venue nearby. The food was great, especially cocktail hour and the taco station. But the highlight was the cake. Every review here about the yummy cakes are true- we got the chocolate cake with raspberry filling- I am still raving about it. Our bridal attendant was great- we were never without drinks. My only suggestion would be to move the favor table from downstairs to right outside the room- a few of our guests missed the favor table or thought it was for the other event. That being said, it's a really small detail in the scheme of things and you can't hear any noise from the other room. I'm really happy with Maritime Parc and would highly recommend having your wedding there. We loved ours!

I reached out to Maritime Parc in the hopes to host my wedding there next October of 2016. I received a phone call from Elizabeth to gather some information and discuss scheduling a tour. I explained to Elizabeth that exclusivity was important to my fiancé and I and her... Read More immediate response was "What's the issue with more than one wedding at a time?" After explaining to her that is a personal preference of ours (which I shouldn't have to even explain) she snapped back with "Well we're a business and if you want the entire venue to yourselves its a fee of $15,000" Wow. I get that they are indeed a business. And I understand that requesting a venue to host only your wedding on any given day when they have the capacity to host 2 would definitely incur a substantial rental space fee. But her tone and attitude were completely uncalled for and are what completely turned me off. I should have just hung up right then and there. Nonetheless, my fiancé still wanted to schedule a tour since we really liked the location (we wanted a beautiful NYC skyline view) and had read a ton of great reviews online. The day of our tour we decided to bring my grandmother along with us to make a day of it and possibly have lunch. Our appointment was scheduled for 1pm on Monday July 27, 2015. We got there a few minutes before 1pm and were taken to the restaurant area to wait for Elizabeth. The restaurant was completely empty and we were waiting for 20 minutes before we decided that this just isn't going to fly. A person who is a Director of Sales and has 1 hour slots booked for tours throughout her day should NEVER make a prospect wait. I was hoping after her unprofessional demeanor during our phone call she would try to compensate by at least showing punctuality on the day of our tour. When we tried to contact the manager Mark SEVERAL times, the girls at the front desk would try to pre screen the call and always said he was "unavailable." He also never returns phone calls. This place is not deserving of our time, consideration or money and I certainly wouldn't wish Elizabeth to handle anyone's wedding. Her carelessness, rudeness and lack of professionalism are a detriment to an aesthetically beautiful venue. Your wedding day if one of the most important days of your life and anyone in charge of that should take that into account. If they don't, find another venue. Which we thankfully did.
