Reviews

Almost ‘like a country inn’, this ‘getaway’ in ‘lovely’ Fort Tryon Park provides a ‘stunning’, ‘surrounded-by-trees’ setting for its ‘farm-to-table’ American fare, especially out on the ‘magical’ terrace.

Your staff, the atmosphere, the food were outstanding in every way possible and everyone is still raving about how unforgettable it was. Cathy was top notch from start to finish and the event was above and beyond our expectations. Someone said that the food was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Thank you so very much for making my wedding day the best day of my life.

We loved having our wedding at New Leaf! This is one of the true hidden gems of New York, with a Hudson Valley feel in Manhattan. We feel very lucky that New Leaf was available on our wedding day - if it is available for yours, we recommend booking it without hesitation! Our experience with New Leaf exceeded expectations in all areas. Cathy and her team were simply incredible to work with - very friendly, organized, transparent, competent, and no-nonsense. Cathy is a true professional who knows how to host a great event, and on top of that, she is a very kind person who cares deeply about what she does. Cathy went out of her way again and again to make our wedding special! She was consistently responsive over phone and email and exceptionally accommodating, from the tasting to the event itself. We were very impressed with all the New Leaf staff: they were all so kind and welcoming to us and to our guests! Our guests gave us many compliments on the food and signature cocktails that the awesome bartender created for us. The natural setting of the gardens is incredibly beautiful, the clear tent in springtime was enchanting, and the restaurant itself has so much character and charm. You really won’t find another venue like this in New York for such great value. Thank you, Cathy and team, for helping us to have such an amazing, memorable wedding!

Hi Cathy,
We came in last Friday for dinner with my dog Bella and boyfriend’s two young girls :) I just wanted to thank you for the extremely special experience and thank you so much for accommodating the dog. We enjoyed the delicious desserts so much and just wanted to say what an absolute treat it was, having dinner there and meeting you. It felt like I was going home for dinner. you really made my weekend and I’m still thinking about the heart warming experience today. I hope you’re having a wonderful week. I sure wish I could return the favor. You’re the absolute best.

Thanks again from all of us!

Magical Wedding due to Top-Notch Service

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the New Leaf. Cathy and her team went above and beyond every expectation not only for our wedding reception, but for the year leading up to the wedding. From the first time we met Cathy at the New Leaf, she made us feel at home and we were immediately assured by her hospitality and thoughtfulness that she would help guide us through the foreign process of planning a reception. She clearly was a wedding vet and we appreciated her guidance for flow, coordination and suggestions that matched what we were looking for in our reception.
