Where do I start! The Above Staten Island made my wedding day so exceptional that I will have a lifetime of memories. Coming from Westchester County, where several venues are a possibility, Above just spoke to me! At the Above, Jennifer from Day #1 assisted me with my vision and my many questions to help execute a wedding that many are not used too. I wanted a Rooftop lounge vibe and they DELIVERED. Jackie, my bridal attendant, AMAZING! This woman did not skip a beat! She WORKED and this bride never wanted for anything! Anything and everything was HANDLED! ABOVE, is the perfect name because they will go ABOVE to make things right and happen!! The Maitre'd, Tom, a true gem! My dad had a specific request for food and Tom personally went to get his order filled! That meant so much to me. 🤗 The food was EVERYTHING! The Chef.... God Bless your talent! My guests are still talking anout the food! Above should offer a couples night just so people can revisit the AMAZING food!! I can go on and on about my wedding! But I am truly grateful to have an amazing time at my wedding! #Team AbovesStatenIsland
The vision: A ton of delicious and eclectic food, top shelf liquor flowing, romantic ceremony, sexy and fun reception, no hiccups, perfection. The verdict: It was the greatest night of our lives, and three months later, it STILL is. Guests still call to this day expressing what a great time they had, and that was most important for us. This was truly spectacular, not your average wedding. We wanted the guests to feel like they were the most important people in the room and that's what it was. Never stuffy, perfectly executed, magical. I cannot say enough about Jennifer or Carroll. They were calm, helpful, easy to work with, so sharp, and genuinely love their jobs because I feel like this friendship will last a lifetime.
Our wedding at Above Rooftop on September 4, 2021 was perfect. Jackie (bridal attendant) and Tom (maitre d) were incredible and made sure everything was taken care of and took it upon themselves to ensure we had the best time. Jackie felt like a friend from the moment she said hello. She's a fun and friendly person who worked her tail off to give us the perfect day, and she showed she truly cared and paid attention to us. I suppose it's expected she would cater to our needs, but she also anticipated our wants. She's an amazing person and we're so happy she was with us on our day. Tom was also a gem, immediately being a buddy and helping with anything we needed. He's super attentive but in a perfect way that it never once felt like he was hovering over us. Our opinions of Jackie are dittoed for Tom. The day honestly wouldn't have been the same without them. The Above venue is stunning, and I can't believe how many compliments we heard about the rooftop and ballroom. The ease and convenience of Above having all locations (hotel, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) coupled with it's high class aesthetic and charm would be enough for me to recommend a wedding here to anybody. The amazing NYC view, absolutely delicious food, spaciousness, and kind staff are just bonuses. Above recommended the band Paris NYC for us and we couldn't ditto the recommendation any more. They were incredible, friendly, and all around an amazing team. Every single person that we spoke to after the wedding made a point to say how great the band was. I think my wife likes this band more than she likes me now, and we'll go out of our way to recommend this incredible band / group of kind and fun people to anybody. They brought the house down. It was incredible.
Had our daughter's wedding at Above Rooftop on July 17, 2021. Everything was excellent. It was a Cocktail Reception. From the party planner, Jennifer, bridal attendant, Jackie, and maitre d, Tom. Couldn't ask for a better team! Thank you for all the hard work you put into making this party as successful as you did.
We had a Birthday Dinner with friends at Lorenzo's. It was a Beautiful time, the food and service were wonderful. Mr. and Mrs. Nicotra came to our table to sing Happy Birthday to our friend. We spoke for a bit, they are Amazing People. Our server Paul was great. We definitely will be coming frequently. I am in awe of everything Mr. and Mrs Nicotra do for our Community. They are so kind and down to earth, it was a pleasure.
