The Water Club in NYC

Reviewed on 4/14/2012 Eileen M

We had our wedding at the Water Club in NYC in March and we had the perfect wedding. Everyone told us that they loved the food and the views. Joanne, the wedding coordinator at the Water Club, was extremely helpful in planning the wedding too.

We had our reception in one of the rooms upstairs. 3 of the walls are windows, and the view was beautiful. Also, Joanne (the event director at The Waterclub) was such a pleasure to work with--very friendly and professional. The waitstaff was also excellent, and the food was... Read More very good.;There is no elevator to the second floor, so if you are inviting people who cannot climb stairs the upstairs rooms will not work for you.

My husband and I had our wedding at The Water Club in October 2017. We had searched for a venue for months and had difficulty finding an NYC venue for a reasonable price and willing to have less than 100 people. As soon as we went to The Water Club we knew we had found the... Read More right place. Alyson was our point person throughout the process and her attention to detail (and quick responses to our emails) was amazing. We had a brunch wedding with the ceremony upstairs, cocktails at the bar downstairs, and the reception in the river room downstairs. Our guests raved about the food and the views. We also appreciated how great the tasting was leading up to the wedding - it was a ton of food and wine, and was a great date in itself! I highly recommend having an event at The Water Club and we look forward to going back in years to come to remember our special day.

Joanne was very attentive thorough the entire process. Everyone raved about the food and the location. My only complain would be that it was VERY hot in the reception room. It was an 80 degree day and no matter how often people asked for more air it didn't seem to make a... Read More difference.

We could have not picked a better place to have our wedding reception on July 8, 2017. They made our wedding SO much fun! It was the best wedding!!!! We worked with Joanne from the Water club and she was truly the best. They treated us like family. We picked the Water Club... Read More most importantly because we wanted to have our wedding be the only wedding at our venue. Our food was to die for as it was not Catering hall food, but it was actual restaurant food. If you have ever dined at the Water Club, you will know that you will never be disappointed. The night we signed our contract they let us enjoy a free meal on them and also the day after our wedding – it was really sweet and we will always remember the small details. The portions were very generous for a wedding and everyone was stuffed just after cocktail hour. Joanne is the ABSOLUTE BEST! Everything throughout our wedding went PERFECT and every dish was properly timed. She made sure to lay out every single prop we purchased, just as we discussed. She also saved EVERYTHING for us the day after the wedding. Joanne let us have our parents at our tasting, which really meant a lot to us. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and she set up an amazing detailed timeline of events that kept everyone on schedule. Joanne collaborated with our DJ, photographers, videographers, and all other vendors very nicely. She was extremely responsive and the water club let have the dry ice effect during our first dance. They also let us have a sparkler goodbye. We would give the Water Club a thousand stars if we could. We know that the Water Club will forever be a memorable restaurant for us. Joanne was reasonable, detail oriented, punctual, and the payment was so easy. Just an overall delight to work with the Water Club and I would HIGHLY recommend for not only weddings but for any event. We wish we could relive that night! It was the best night of our lives!

We had our wedding at the Water Club in August 2017 and it was absolutely perfect. We worked with Joanne and she made sure that everything we envisioned was executed seamlessly. We couldn't have asked for a better venue director. The food was incredible. Each course was... Read More delicious and perfectly plated.

We had our wedding here this weekend. It was INCREDIBLE! The food was impeccable and the service was attentive. The cocktail hour was extraordinary and the main meals were out of this world.

The view from The Water Club is unmatched, and very few decorations were needed, as the space stands on its own as stunning.

Thank you, Water Club for making my wedding the best day of my life (so far). I already have it in my head that I want to do it again for our 10th anniversary!

I can't say enough positive things about the Water Club, it truly is a NYC gem. The Water Club provides a classically elegant atmosphere and dinning experience on the East River in Manhattan. My husband and I were lucky enough to have our May wedding at the Water Club. Our... Read More guests are still raving about the venue and the food, and lets not forget the beautiful views that wow during the day and sparkle at night. We wanted a wedding that was romantic, classy, elegant, and with just the right amount of city and on the water feel. The Water Club exceeded all of our expectations. Planning with Joanne was a breeze. She was always enjoyable to meet with, and fun to talk to (she used to run Delmonico's in the 80's so we knew we had one of the very best venue coordinators in the city). Joanne was enthusiastic about all of our plans and made us feel very special, which is amazingly rare in the wedding industry. Joanne worked with our vendors and bridesmaids to make sure things ran seamlessly, and the room looked like our vision. The maître d' on the day of our wedding was superb and accommodated my husband and I continuously, and made sure the butlers got passed hors-d'oeuvres to me (which if you have had a wedding before you understand that the Bride and Groom usually do not get a chance to eat much of their food). The food was delicious and the open bar provided lots of options (including some fantastic Old Fashioned cocktails). So many guests told us they had never been to a wedding with such great food. This is one of the benefits of having your wedding in one of NYC's best restaurants. If you are able to have your wedding at the Water Club, do not pass up the opportunity. They made our wedding day better than we ever could have imagined. Plus, we now have a special and extremely romantic restaurant to celebrate anniversaries and special occasions.
