My fiancée and I travelled over to NYC to get married in August. Along with us, 12 family members/ friends also went over.
As we were getting married we were looking for somewhere to have an evening meal for us and our guests (bearing in mind my wife would be in a wedding dress).
Having looked at an endless amount of restaurants we finally decided on Basso 56, a choice we will never regret!
From start to finish everything was brilliant!
Prior to booking we had numerous email conversations with the restaurant, every time we recieved a response they were very informative and helpful, totally putting us at ease as neither of us had ever even visited NYC, let alone dined out there!
Nothing seemed to be too much of a problem for then and their staff and they were more than happy to accommodate us, even putting on a set menu, with our names and date on the top, which we considered to be going above and beyond our expectations!
The day prior to our meal we called in to drop off cards we had wrote to each of our guests which also doubled as place marks, as well as the seating arrangement, which again was met with a friend smile and can do attitude.
On the evening itself (Tuesday), the restaurant was full, with a great atmosphere, which is exactly what we were looking for, to the point that as we entered (remembering my now wife, was wearing a wedding dress) all the staff and diners gave us a huge round of applause and cheered, it really made our night!
We had our own waiter for the evening who was excellent, very attentive, questions never went unanswered and drinks were always topped up prior to you even realising they needed to be, it was the perfect blend between attentiveness, and giving us enough space. We were told we could stay as long as we wanted and to take our time. The staff even helped out by taking some pictures for us of our group!
Everyone's food arrived on time and, as we normally do, everyone sampled the other dishes and all were fantastic! Starter, main and dessert were all absolutely gorgeous!
All in all I cannot rate Basso 56 high enough, from first contact to paying the bill (a period probably about 4 months long), they were fantastic and really contributed toward making our wedding day what we dreamed of!
