Thanks ladies.  We really had a great time.   Your two staff members were so helpful and pleasant.  The room is really super, and the food was great (especially fond of the guacamole!).  All of our friends were remarking about what a great venue it was–a real hidden gem in NYC.  We will be recommending you/using you in the future for sure.

Happy to serve as a reference if anyone ever wants to contact me.

Thank you for the email. The party was a huge success. Lindsay and the other gentleman that assisted were wonderful. The food was delicious and the space was perfect.

Thank you for making the night so lovely. -Dina 

Thank you so much for all your help with Harry’s party – we all had a blast, and I’m still hearing from guests what a fantastic party it was. The advice on setting up the mats and the coloring table for the kids was spot on, and the adults had a great time as well. Everyone was super helpful, both in the planning stages and at the party itself.

Thanks again – I look forward to the next event!

Everything was great!!! The space, the staff, the food – it was all perfect and the entire process was very simple and seamless. Niki stayed on top of me (in a non-annoying way) to make sure that the food got ordered and all special requests were taken care of. I would definitely use your group and the space again!

We underestimated (by a lot) what the open bar tab would be, so maybe a bit more guidance on this sort of thing would be good but aside from that we were delighted!!!






I have been meaning to call. The party was perfect! Everyone was so helpful and not one thing went wrong. All our guests had a great time and LOVED the food!

Thank you so much for everything, if we throw another party we would definitely call upon you again.

I also appreciate that re bulbs were changed in the lights, it made a huge difference especially with the little kids!

We can’t thank you enough for helping make our daughter’s first birthday unforgettable.

Thank you,





Thanks!  The party was great.  We had a wonderful time and so did our guests.

The planning process was good.  I like that I receive an email confirming that the contract has been processed.  The food was all good and we probably should have ordered a little bit more, but it was ok.  The brownie bites were yummy and great warmed up, but tasted like they might have been undercooked (unless it was supposed to be a soft chocolate in the middle type thing, but it was hard to tell).  Everyone was great to work with and responsive.  It seemed a bit silly to have to re-sign the contract each change and adding the food – an email is binding and could/should be sufficient.  The people working the party were efficient and helpful.  We were very happy with the experience we had and will definitely be considering this location for a future party.  Thank you for helping us have a wonderful 2nd Birthday for our daughter.

I would prefer not to have my response appear anywhere, thanks!


The planning process was very easy. Christine, Kate, Nikki and Courtney were all very helpful and made me feel like everything was taken care. The reminder process about food was also extremely helpful. The on site staff were very helpful. They were inconspicuous yet I was able to find them whenever I needed everything. I could not have been more pleased with the entire process.

Thanks, Andrew



The whole process from booking the party to the party itself was absolutely wonderful.  The party staff was excellent, they helped us set-up and made sure that everything went smoothly.  I would definitely have another party at The Havana Room and will be sure to recommend to others.

Dear Christine, Kate, Niki and Courtney

Thanks for helping us plan Anna and Isabella’s party at the Havana Room.  The kids all had a fantastic time.  The DJ was great- he really got the kids moving and they danced their little feet off.  The food went over big, too.  All in all, it was a really fun night.



Hi Christina,

I wanted to thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you did for Greg’s party. Greg absolutely loved The Oak Cellar and he had a great time (as did everyone else). The service, food and drinks were great.

GD (I believe that’s his name) was very sweet and he did a great job that night. He was very attentive and professional.

Thanks again for everything! I will recommend your services to others looking for a private party.

It was great.  The staff was extremely helpful.

No real constructive criticism to offer. it was a pleasure to have the party there.

Thanks for everything!



Hi All,

The party on Sunday went very well.  Julie was excellent – very helpful, very responsive, very personable,  And the rest of the restaurant personnel was also.  The food was perfect for the kids.  They devoured it.  The DJ wasn’t too loud for the space and the kids really enjoyed him.  You might consider that company if you need additional DJs.  They are called SoundExplosion.

One funny story…..  Because the kids were going outside more than what was comfortable for me and Julie, she put a “large person” at the door to stop the kids from roaming outside.  It somehow got around to the kids in her class that this person was my daughter’s bodyguard.  We had good laugh and my daughter felt very special.




Hello girls! Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful party for our baby Timothy’s christening. Everything was so nice & the food was delicious! Courtney was a doll-so helpful & on top of everything. Zach was also wonderful-great bartender. We would love to have another party there again in the future-only next time we wouldn’t order so much food-we  had so much left over! Thanks again!



I was so happy with my party.   Honestly, I am not shy — I have not one complaint!   I loved the space and the food.   Rachel was fantastic.  Thanks very much!




I apologize for not writing sooner!

The party was FABULOUS!!!  Everything went so smoothly.  Rachel was fantastic; she kept everything under control, made sure there was plenty of food, found spaces for all the folding strollers and coats, and most importantly allowed my husband and I to relax and enjoy the day.  Because everything went so well, we were able to spend time with our guests and enjoy watching our daughter dance and play with her friends.  You only turn one once, and because of your fantastic staff, both behind the scenes and in front, this was a celebration we’ll never forget.

We will be sure to recommend your services to any and all of our friends.

Thanks a million!!

Party was a huge success!! Rachael and her staff were helpful beyond our expectations! We were very pleased with the coordination efforts and professionalism of the entire EDBM staff.  We have another baby on the way so we may see you all again in 18 months!

Thanks again!!!
