We worked with Jennifer Walsh at the Sunset Terrace and she was phenomenal. From start to finish (over the last year and a half), she provided quick, helpful responses over both email and phone and was super accommodating. We were constantly blown away and impressed. The Sunset Terrace itself is a beautiful and extremely affordable venue for the city and we were really grateful with how much they were able to provide for us with regard to decor, set-up/break-down, and catering. The food is from Neuman's Kitchen and it was unreal, as were the cocktails. They even made special changes just for us based on our requests. Jennifer is experienced with creating detailed itineraries for the day and knew what would "flow" best for the evening. She also provided us with helpful recommendations for other vendors to use and reassured us when we were hit with the unexpected (e.g., knowing which vendors tend to be more creative/less detail oriented but not to be worried about that). I have nothing but wonderful things to say about her and the venue in general.

Sunset Terrace is a hidden gem! We just held our wedding reception there and had such a beautiful day. It exceeded our already high expectations. Where else can you have an event on the Hudson River that is fully covered but also allows for open-air and your guests to enjoy a terrace? It feels like such an escape in the middle of Manhattan.

Beyond the beautiful ambiance, we couldn't have asked for better staff and customer service. Sherwin was so responsive and proactive and worked extremely well with all of our vendors. He was a great partner throughout the process and made himself available for walk-throughs and as questions arose. On the day of our wedding, the whole staff was professional and helped meet all of our guests' needs. We recommend Sunset Terrace without any reservation!

The experience at Sunset Terrace was outstanding, from the initial tour of the venue to the very end of our wedding reception. The event manager Sherwin and coordinator Christine were attentive to our every need, and were even proactive in helping plan the wedding. My husband and I were actually a bit behind on wedding planning as the event approached, because we were both working and I was in grad school. Sherwin and Christine made sure we had every detail covered during the weeks leading up to our big day.

My husband Huntly was particularly impressed in one conversation where Sherwin helped us save money in one decorations area by suggesting we focus on something else that would actually make the guest experience better. It's clear that the team at Chelsea Piers was not trying to "up-sell" on anything, and were truly focused on making sure we had a great day without any unnecessary frills.

Sherwin and Christine were also great on the day of our wedding. From making sure all the transitions during the night went smoothly, to coordinating our wedding party, guests, and vendors between areas, and even the little details like keeping our drinks filled and plates full throughout the evening, it all made the wedding perfect. I couldn't recommend a better staff to have manage your wedding.

In terms of the venue itself, it's a beautiful setting that makes for a very romantic evening. We got married on a Saturday evening in June, and the view of the sunset over the Hudson was so pretty, and gave us some super great photo opportunities! And for value, we found the pricing to be one of the most affordable in the city.
