Hudson Garden Grill
Nestled within the idyllic setting of the 40-acre Ross Conifer Arboretum, Hudson Garden Grill is the first full-service dining destination to open on the grounds of The New York Botanical Garden. This farm-to-table restaurant spotlights the innovative flavors of New American cuisine as inspired by locally sourced, ethically produced ingredients from Hudson Valley farms and other regional producers. The space is defined by accents of steel and oxidized copper that contrast with the whitewashed, rough-sawn red oak paneling reclaimed from Garden trees felled by Hurricane Sandy. Each element complements the original architecture at its heart. Low banquet seating, an expansive walnut-topped bar, and an open kitchen designed for exhibition cooking represent the vision of Bentel & Bentel, the award-winning architectural firm behind the restaurant’s design. Available for private dinners and receptions, Hudson Garden Grill is the perfect location for beautiful special events.
Capacity: up to 50 guests
- Weekdays: after 4pm

“The best wedding ever …”
We were married in the Garden Terrace Room on June 3 and everything about the day exceeded our expectations. Katie Parker and her team perfectly orchestrated a beautiful event. Everything involved leading up the day was impeccably organized. Katie coordinated numerous calls and a site visit – she was accommodating to every single request. The day of was incredibly smooth and flawless. Our bridal suite was overflowing with drinks and snacks (so appreciated) and all of our guests raved about the food AND the service. The feedback from everyone was: “The best wedding ever” and the backdrop of the gardens is simply unmatched. The team at NYBG is exceptional at what they do … would recommend 12/10 and only wish we could do it over again!
“Everything we imagined it to be and more! …”
Our May 21 wedding at the Stone Mill was everything we imagined it to be and more! Constellation Culinary at NYBG were more than accommodating to all of our needs for a multicultural ceremony and reception. Katie Parker was highly responsive and very professional and helped bring our vision to life!
“The venue is beautiful, even in the winter …”
We got married at the NYBG in the Stone Mill on December 10th. The venue is beautiful, even in the winter. Chantal, who was our main contact for the event, and she was always prompt in responding and answering our questions. The food is SO GOOD. Incredible. We had a jazz brass trio during cocktail hour. The service at our wedding was fantastic. I would recommend this as a wedding venue to anyone who is looking for a romantic, rustic, intimate theme to their day. Even in December we had the florist put bistro lights on the patio outside and many people went outside to get some fresh air even though it was very cold the day of our wedding!
“Wow, wow, wow, and more wow …”
Wow, wow, wow, and more wow. We booked the Stone Mill for a spring wedding. It is a gorgeous venue, with your ceremony being able to be outdoors along the Bronx river, cocktail being half in and out, and the mill itself is just a work of art for your reception. Unfortunately, we got rained out for our ceremony. We had envisioned this gorgeous outdoor garden wedding, but it had to be moved inside. All I can say is we have no idea what we were missing. They handled it seamlessly, amazingly, and made sure we were comfortable and happy the entire time. It was STUNNING even when moved indoors. Not to mention the service, the food, the everything was top notch. Better than we could have ever hoped for. All I can say, is if an outdoor based venue and group can make your indoor rainy wedding this magical, do not think twice and book this venue for your wedding. Amazing amazing amazing experience.
“The most beautiful wedding …”
My husband and I got married at the Stone Mill at New York Botanical Garden on September 30, 2022. The staff could not have been more helpful, and it was a beautiful day. The food was a great quality, and everyone said it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to!
“Wish I could do it all over …”
We were looking for a smaller, intimate venue that also was near enough to the heart of NYC that allowed our out of state guests lots of flexibility and convenient airports and lodging. Stone Mill was perfect. The staff during the event was incredible. I had multiple people tell me how impressed they were with the service. Our bridal attendant was there exactly when we needed a refresh of drink, offered to get us custom plates of food from cocktail hour and ensured we had everything we could possibly need in the bridal suite. If you’re looking to book a picture-perfect venue with a partner team that will make the planning process easy and stress free, book at NYBG. I wish I could do it all over just to be able to enjoy our wedding day again.
“We had a great experience …”
We had a great experience on Friday! Everyone loved the venue and I received good feedback regarding the appetizers! You and your team were amazing especially with being so flexible with the last-minute table rearranging. Neev and Pascal were very attentive and ensured the night went smoothly. The waiters were friendly and attentive as well! You truly have a great team on your hands. Thank you for your attention to detail for this event and I hope we will be able to work again with you.
“I have no words …”
I have no words to accurately describe how amazing and perfect everything was for our wedding at the NYBG. The entire team put so much focus and thought into every detail of our wedding. The entire night ran so smoothly – it’s hard to believe there was not even one issue. I can’t get over how perfect everything was.
It was truly our dream wedding – planned long ago – almost four years – culminating with the most amazing party and celebration. There are almost no words to tell you how thrilled I was dealing with Nina Dolin for the final run up to the event. She is a truly wonderful and incredible person. Top professional, top organizer, tops at her craft and she is more importantly to me the most caring, compassionate and fantastic person who bent and moved to my rhythm to make this a truly perfect party! I am such a type A person, but I met my match and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Every detail and request were handled with her very special care and consideration. It was truly beyond my every expectation. It was a perfect day – preceded by a perfect experience. I’ve adopted Nina so watch out… I may lure her away to hang with me in the Berkshires. You are so lucky to have her!!! I give her an A++++. She’s the best!
“Top-notch hospitality professionals …”
Thank you all so very much for your efforts to make this event the resounding success that it was. I honestly can’t tell you what a treat it is for me to work with such a stellar, professional team. Galit, Brandi, Blake and every single person who worked last night were all top-notch hospitality professionals. I told Galit it was the first time in 12 years of doing events I didn’t do a final table check! I hope you all have a fabulous summer event season and look forward to coming back in a couple years.
“WHAT A VENUE! ..”
WHAT A VENUE! I do not have enough positive feedback to give to NYBG and I couldn’t be happier to have had my wedding here. Everything was a dream. The gorgeous ambiance speaks volumes for itself. But what truly made the wedding spectacular was the level of service. Let me start by addressing the catering manager, Chantal. When I met Chantal, I was immediately sold. Her calm demeanor, chill personality and sweet soul made me love her and want to work with her. There was not one thing she didn’t do for me. From getting the tequila I like to drink, to sourcing a Parmesan wheel for cocktail hour, and tying the napkins on the table the way I liked them, she did it all. She answered every phone call, every text and email and never told me that there was something she couldn’t do. Even when things went wrong, she was there to make sure it was made right. I truly consider her family now. She went above and beyond for me for two years and even more throughout my wedding night. I cannot thank her enough. My bridal attendant, Sasha was a pure treasure. She was with me the whole day and constantly made sure I was drinking, eating, and happy. She came to all of our photos and was so sweet to take some of her own just to send me the next day. She’s an amazing person and I was so lucky to have her. The food was out of sight!! My family is Italian so we added A LOT to the menu and there wasn’t one bad thing I had. I honestly wish I ate more but I heard it was incredible. I could cry from all of the gratitude I feel for this incredible company. My wedding day was everything I wanted and I am so glad I chose NYBG. this place will forever hold the most special place in my heart. I can’t wait to come back every year, and reminisce about the time we had.
“A complete dream come true …”
Working with Katie Parker and the entire Constellation team at the NYBG was a complete dream come true for our wedding! First, the location. You cannot get a more beautiful location in the NYC area than the NYBG and for us, the Stone Mill. The moment we visited we knew this was the place for us to have our special day. It is beautiful in every season and we lucked out with a gorgeous end of summer evening that allowed for the most stunning ceremony overlooking the Bronx river. Second, the staff. Everyone we worked with was incredible, and especially Katie Parker who oversaw our day. Her attention to detail and attentiveness helped to make our day magical. She went above and beyond in helping to ensure that what we envisioned became a reality (including hand delivering wedding cake to our apartment after our tasting to ensure that we could taste it fresh). Third, the food and what’s included. We knew the food would be amazing after eating at the NYBG restaurant multiple times and we were blown away by the food for the wedding, as were our guests who can’t stop talking about the food and drinks. Choosing the NYBG meant we didn’t have to think about bringing in service staff and linens and other details and it felt as close to a one-stop-(top of the line)-shop for our wedding. Truly, the best decision we made was the StoneMill/NYBG for our wedding!
