~Annual Fundraiser at Traditional Penthouse Ballroom
"The event went beautifully! The staff members were very pleasant and accommodating to our guests. The food was delicious – as I knew it would be!
Everyone marveled at the space and views. In short, it was really, really good. (My only criticism of the whole event was that a couple of the speeches
went on too long and I actually had to cut someone off! If that’s the only thing I have to complain about, I would say that’s a total success!)"

~70th Birthday Party at Modern Studio with Terrace
"Modern Studio with Terrace was perfect for the art-gallery themed party we had, and the views are
spectacular. Galina, our contact at the studio, was immensely helpful and professional. I would recommend this site highly."
~Campaign Fundraiser at Charming 1850s Mansion and Art Gallery
"We catered a fundraiser for the Rudy Giuliani Campaign earlier this year. I was asked by a good client of mine to find a space that was affordable, elegant, etc. Venfino was so very helpful in helping us find one.
They returned my inquiry promptly and they were lovely to deal with.
Charming 1850s Mansion and Art Gallery proved to be the perfect location. It has an old world elegance and the people were extremely helpful. The event was a big success and I would highly recommend the Club to anyone looking for a clean, elegant spaced to hold an event of small to mid size."

~Bar Mitzvah at Traditional Penthouse Ballroom
"We had our sons' B'nei Mitzvah at Ballroom #85 on February 25th, 2007. It was an unbelievable space, and everyone there was incredibly helpful and professional. Our out of town and local guests marvelled at the wonderful views and it was a perfect venue. Was so happy with our choice!"
~Association of National Advertisers Conference at The Marriott Marquis
"The courteous and professional staff at The Marriott made our event a grand success. We are returning for 2008 and for years to come…"

~Wedding at Intimate Living Room Loft
"I would be very happy to give you my thoughts on our event. First of all, you were extremely helpful - I had NO familiarity with any spaces such a distance away, and no idea how to go about finding one that was appropriate in size, location, cost and associated services that I could use.
Your website was a wonderful find! After that, you didn't lose me, which was very important, because when you are making so many contacts online trying to find resources while working full time and far away, it is easy to lose touch. You emailed me back to see if I had been contacted yet and then pursued the contact for me - none of the rest of our time would have happened with all of this first!!
Intimate Living Room Loft was the RIGHT match for us. A beautiful space, seasoned experienced personable event planner, associated vendors of excellent quality and reliability, and a professional polished staff who took care of every detail. I raved so much to Ilene about her staff I forgot to tell her how excellent the food was!
We ended up with a champagne cocktail reception following the ceremony all in the loft, and it was lovely, elegant, delicious and fun. Ilene was an excellent foil for our plans, suggesting and steering us when we needed guidance to help our celebration have the tone we wanted in the budget we could afford with all the style we needed for a Manhattan wedding!
It was a wedding we remember with relish and delight!"
~Graduation Dinner at Intimate Living Room Loft
Thank you so much for recommending Intimate Living Room Loft to us! I am still hearing from people about how wonderful my party was - the
ambiance was so warm and welcoming, and sophisticated at the same time. The food was exquisite, and served with such class. Ilene did a marvelous job and I so appreciate your help with finding this place as
well as Ilene's unmatched professionalism. The night flew by and I loved every minute of it.
I am so thankful for all that you did. I hope we will do something together again sometime soon.
~UMT End of Year Holiday Party at 3 West Club
"UMT is a group of very tasteful, intelligent individuals who are from all over the world and travel on projects from New York to Brazil to Israel and even South Africa, almost every two weeks.
Therefore, it was not so easy to satisfy everyone!
I as the organizer had a very tough task to actually search for a perfect place for our 2006 company holiday party. I came upon Venfino on the web and quickly
looked through the list of venues they’ve worked with – very impressive list – and I got lost of course, then filled out a quick form with the party date/info and received a call from one of Venfino’s specialists right away.
With Venfino’s help I found a perfect place for our party – 3 West Club – a beautiful room with high ceilings, where I felt like a ballerina when I walked in! Even after the event, I have stayed in touch with Venfino for upcoming parties and events, not only for business but also
for family and friends. I most certainly recommend their services to everyone."

-Wedding at Glass-Enclosed Riverside Restaurant
"My Husband (Clifford) and I had our wedding celebration at Glass-Enclosed Riverside Restaurant on July 14th, 2007,
it was a blast! I had approximately 60 guests of family and friends from New York, Maryland and North Carolina who are still talking
about how the place was beautiful and how they enjoyed themselves very much. All of this would not have happened if I didn't have
such a wonderful and marvelous woman as the coordinator by the name of Ena, who assisted me in making my wedding celebration
such a memorable one. It's amazing to meet someone for the first time and click with them instantly and Ena was that person.
Again, I thank her for suggesting such a great band ("The Untouchables") and the staff for making our event a success and an enjoyable one.
Furthermore, one of our guests was so impressed with the place that they plan to have their function there. Keep up the good work. God Bless!"
-60th Birthday Barbecue Bash at High-End Loft and Terrace
"When I considered throwing myself a 60th birthday party to celebrate this nasty turn of events,
the operative concept was: It's never too late to get funky.
I Googled "party loft New York" and found Venfino, which quickly and pleasantly referred me to several very acceptable
spots, all of which contacted me. I chose Loft #47. The place was spectacular, the people were easy to work with, their referrals for
caterers were excellent, I had a lot of fun, and all my friends tell me the party was a great success."
-Amazing Birthday Party on top of The Time Hotel
"I decided to throw a very last minute birthday party for my husband. I had less than two weeks to find a venue.
I came across Venfino's website and filled out the online questionaire. They contacted me very shortly and
suggested locations within the city that fit into my criteria. There was constant communication days prior
to the event. Any questions or concerns was promptly answered. I eventually chose the rooftop floor of
the Time Hotel. It was summer, we had outdoor access, the place and view was amazing! Catering and bar service was great..our guests and more importantly, my husband had a most memorable evening.
I would have never known about this party space had I not been talking with Venfino. Felix was so helpful and easy to talk to...I even invited him to drop by and have a drink on me! I would definitely recommend
this service to any family or friends throwing a party in the city."
-Company Holiday Party at Intimate Bi-Level Bar Lounge
"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday event at Lounge #45. The staff was great, very efficient and courteous.
The private room was perfect for our event - especially with the bathroom upstairs. The music level
and atmosphere was perfect - made the party festive, but still allowed for conversation. The food was
great and plentiful - the staff was consistently bringing out new trays. Thanks for having us and we
will be sure to call you next year!!"

-Successful Fundraiser at Providence-
"Recently, our medical school, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, planned a fundraiser to raise money for a clinic to treat uninsured
patients in the Bronx. Through Venfino.com, we were able to contact many venues about our fundraiser
and receive many responses at one time. By giving Venfino a description of our specific event
and population of those attending it, we were able to make arrangements with Providence to to hold
our event in their Triumph Room. The venue was perfect for our event, as it catered to both large
and medium-sized parties. Everyone that attended the party had a great time, and many inquired
about how they can use Venfino to plan their next event. I would definitely recommend using
the service to plan an event for convenience, great support, and location of amazing venues!"

-Sweet 16 Party at Upscale Loft with Terrace
"Venfino helped me throw a fantastic Sweet 16 Party for my daughter. The space Felix
suggested was just what I was hoping to find, and all the caterers, beverage providers, dj's, etc.,
were professional, pleasant to work with and reasonably priced. Felix himself was great - very accessible
and always checking up to make sure everything was going smoothly - right through the event itself.
He really made the party quite painless!"
-Birthday Celebration at La Gazelle-
"In planning my birthday party, I turned to Venfino, and the rest was history!
Not only did they help me find the perfect venue, but their expert team provided me with the support
and attention vital to my high-profile event. Venfino accommodated every detail for the occasion,
rendering the process of venue selection and event planning with comfort and ease. Venfino offers
you aptness and satisfaction."
