I first went to the Cuvier Club when I was considering venues, but the Abbey Team, who I met there, was so incredibly stellar I knew I needed to work with them no matter where I ended up having my wedding. The entire team at the Abbey did an incredible job with my catering request - Mexican buffet, which was unbelievably good - and helped me coordinate everything for my wedding in San Diego while I was living in Upstate New York. Federico was my event captain, and he was an absolutely lifesaver. He took care of any issues that popped up, and even took the time to come talk to me while I was panicking before walking down the aisle. If I could give higher than 5 stars, I would - they helped my dream wedding come together perfectly!

Weddings... it's a big ordeal and a huge thing to try to tackle on your own. So we were in search of a venue with all inclusive packages to make things easier. As you start, you'll notice that a lot of vendors and venues are no longer an option. Which made the process of elimination a lot easier. Now that we have 5 potential prospects, I've made sure I interviewed them to make sure I had the right staff and venue in place. Out of the 5, there was one clear cut winner in my books and here we are on 8/16/15.

Services:
The Abbey Catering has many packages and are very flexible in offering just about anything to fit your criteria. All their DJs, Photographers, Cake, Florists, etc... (Vendor list) ALL were exceptionally good. Just as all my interviews go... there were clear cut winners and we went with DJ Glasz Productions (Ryan and Sev), Bill Rice Photography, Adelaide's Flowers, Grove Pastry, Concepts Linens, Rehearsal Dinner, and Videographer Tareq Zaatari.

Staff:
Jessie was our sales guy that just started 2 weeks ago, but was in the industry for some time. Megan is an absolute ball of joy and an amazing person to work with. During the initial phase of planning and general overview of your needs; she is on point, very responsive, and ALWAYS willing to help. Once we had our coordinator, Petr, assigned to us everything moved like clockwork. Petr has impeccable timing on just about everything. He is there when you make (last minute) changes, when you least expect him, when you feel overwhelmed, and when he makes you feel confident with what you're about to do.

Food:
We had 2 other foodies accompany us to the tasting and EVERYONE was loving EVERYTHING. Of course, we had to make adjustments to our menu on the fact that most asians don't like horse radish on anything. After a few bottles of wine we made worked out the menu for our plated dinner service. During Rehearsal Dinner we had a buffet style dinner menu from our plated wedding menu.

AMAZING!

If you want your wedding to be perfect, personable, and as well organized as possible, The Abbey Catering & Event Design Co. is your best bet!

We had our wedding on June 16th, 2016 at the Cuvier Club in La Jolla, California. We began our search for venues in December, and made our way down to La Jolla to look at Cuvier Club in January. Immediately off the bat, we met Robert Battoe, whose personality, great sense of humor, and enthusiasm totally won us over. He made us feel at ease, which made choosing the The Abbey a promising start to our wedding planning. They also offer all inclusive packages, and convenient and flexible options that are reasonably priced and numerous, so we were already winning.

The most important and wonderful thing about Robert is that he never forced us to choose anything we weren't into or uncomfortable with. His suggestions were entirely based on our communication with him. He made sure to stay in touch consistently, called us, and was very close to our planning process, which we could not be more thankful for.

Once we booked, Robert set us up with Megan Lessert. She was handling our reception and food services. Megan is probably one of the most joyous people we have had the pleasure or working with. She too was consistently in touch with us, was approachable and responsive, and when we met up with her for our meal tasting, was infectious with her desire to make our wedding special.

This finally led to Petr Trebin, who was the final cog to our wedding's success. His big smile, excitement, and professionalism sealed it for us :) He was the champion during our wedding day, and made everything run flawlessly.

Their demeanors are one of the main reasons a company like The Abbey is successful. They are passionate about their job, and care deeply about the people whose lives they are about to change with their events. Our wedding was absolutely perfect due to everyone there, and we could not be more thankful.

The Abbey did the most incredible job catering my wedding. From the initial tasting almost a year before the wedding all the way through they did an amazing job. Our reception was outdoors at the Bernardo Winery and everything was cooked onsite, hot and plated ready for our guests to walk up an get it. The food was of the same quality and freshness when cooked for 150 people as it was for 3 at our tasting. Our appetizers were a hit with everyone during cocktail hour and our dinner was just as good.

Our event captain, Fede, was great to work with. He was attentive to any emails i sent him and helped pull everything together. At the end of the night he even put aside some leftovers for later, a piece of our cake and our cake toppers. The Abbey is wonderful company to work with and would help make anyone's event a memorable one.

My husband and I recently just had our wedding in October. After looking at so many places back in January/February we decided to book our wedding with Abbey Catering/Cuvier club.It was the best decision we ever made. We started working with Jack who is absolutely wonderful. He helped us get everything started and we were later introduced to the amazing Megan. I can't even put into words how great she is. She is truly incredible. She helped get the ball rolling and helped in the process of choosing from a fantastic list of vendors. She never let me get off track with my busy work schedule that I have. She always kept me on top of the planning and never let me get behind. About 2 months before wedding we were introduced to our wedding planner. Honestly I can go on and on about how amazing Petr our wedding planner was/is. He made the whole process enjoyable and stress free. He was there through everything made sure I didn't have to worry about anything. He was great at getting back to me with whatever doubts/questions I had. The day of my wedding was incredible. I couldn't have asked for more from Petr. Everything was exactly how I imagined it would be and then some. I had many of my guests come up to me and tell me how amazing Petr is. Everything ran smoothly and he was just so joyful and great with all the guests and the kids. So many of my guests were raving about him. I have a guest who told me they recommended this place to a friend who has a daughter that just got engaged. The food was another amazing part as well. Everyone was going on and on about how great the food was even the kids and their food. Still have people asking me months later about the catering and also telling me how happy and delicious the food was. The wedding was such an amazing experience all thanks to Jack Megan Petr and the amazing food and venue.

I can't say enough about The Abbey Catering!! They honestly made our day so exquisite and provided the most impeccable service for our special day!

We had our wedding on 10/17/15 at my parents' home in Escondido (yes, just a few days before writing this review!). Initially we were going to go with another catering company and at the last minute I started having doubts. I cast a net of a few emails to local, high rated catering companies and Jack Taylor from The Abbey got back to me immediately!

With less than two months until the wedding, I was nervous we wouldn't find another company to fill our needs. After speaking with Jack (who is quite the character!) and gathering more info about The Abbey ~ ie, that they could work with our budget and provide us everything we needed, we decided to go for it! And we are so happy we did!

We were assigned Petr as our catering captain, and man were we impressed! When we did the walk through of the ceremony site, Petr had so many great ideas and was paying such close attention to detail that I immediately felt relieved because I knew we were in good hands!

Throughout the planning process, Petr was responsive to every email/call and was just so great at answering every question of ours.

On the day of our wedding, everything went off without a hitch! Our guests RAVED about the food and we definitely had some food connoisseurs there who were ready to critique :) It was SO amazing to me how they kept everything so fresh, hot and delicious! We did a station style dinner and the line didn't get clogged and it didn't take too long at all!

After the experience, the Abbey feels a bit like family now. It's a bonding experience to go through the planning/preparation and I feel like because of their genuine care and commitment to giving us the best experience for our special day, we now know them so well.

I would recommend them to ANYONE looking for an amazing, affordable, professional & impeccable catering service!!!

Choosing the Abbey Catering was the best decision we could have made regarding our wedding. We made first contact with the Abbey and met Jack, who helped us put together an amazing menu based on what we had heard from other prospective caterers and adapted to our request for vegetarian food. The Abbey put together an amazing Mediterranean spread of food for us. Jack did a great job of working within our budget as well and helped us get the most value for our money.

Our Wedding Captain/Coordinator was Mirtha, who was absolutely amazing. She was quick to respond to all of our concerns in a very timely fashion and additionally helped make our wedding dreams a reality. From the day we met her in person, Mirtha made us feel very special and made it her work to make our wedding great. If you choose to work with the Abbey, which we think you should, you could not go wrong with people like Jack and Mirtha, and the Abbey Catering in general.
