The food was amazing, can't say enough great things about it! We had the Mahi and Steak for our guests and they loved everything. Appetizers were so delicious as well. The presentation of the food was also beautiful!

I can't speak highly enough about the Abbey team. We worked with Julie, Megan and Petr throughout the process and had zero issues or complaints. This crew is amazing and made our wedding planning SO easy and fun! Our guests loved the food and we appreciated the prompt responses we received to our numerous questions from everyone involved. Definitely recommend going with their packages if you want amazing wedding coordination and zero hassle. We also priced individual vendors before deciding to go with Abbey's package - no question that the packages are an incredible value. We did the package of 7 which included flowers (Adelaide's), cake (Kuba's), photobooth, lighting, photo (Deborah Shields), video (Timecode) and DJ/MC (with the fabulous Glasz Productions). All of these guys are at the top of their game and there is no way we could have pulled off such a fun and beautiful wedding without Abbey's intros to the fantastic vendors!

Petr was our coordinator and also handled my brother's wedding a few years ago so he is basically our family wedding planner at this point. He is incredible - so responsive, such a great eye for design, and made us feel so at ease with the entire process. He made our reception so beautiful and went above and beyond to thoughtfully place our decor in a way I hadn't even imagined! I have a soft spot in my heart for him, clearly:)

The Abbey Catering definitely exceeded my expectations. Right from the moment we walked in to tour the venue to the end of our wedding night, they were attentive, polite, and answered all my questions. Our event captain Petr was amazing! He thought of things I didn't think of, gave advice, made suggestions, all while still being very accommodating to my wants and needs. The guests raved about the food and of the look and feel of the whole night. Megan answered all my questions and Jack was so helpful through the process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to marry in La Jolla.

If your a bride that's nervous about forgetting something for your wedding, I suggest using the Abbey Catering and Event Design.
I didn't think I could keep it all together. We went with a package that worked so well with everything we wanted out of our special day. Best of all they keep you on track and reminded of what needs to be done. Food was exceptionally great, from the taste to presentation and with many options to choose from. Professional, fun and friendly they make it so easy for you, so when your wedding day comes you can actually enjoy it!
They keep everything on track so you don't have too! Everyone was a great help especially our planner Petr...amazing, he truly wanted to do whatever it took to make our day so special for us and it was.

Abbey is the BEST! Their entire staff is very well organized and extremely easy to work with. If you want your guests to say "Wow, we loved the food at your wedding," book them NOW as they fill up fast. They accommodate any type of food requests even if it is just for 1 person (we had a few gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan and all loved their meals). We also used their bar services which were FANTASTIC! They even organized the chair rentals for us, which minimized the work our coordinator had to do. We couldn't have asked for a better vendor to work with from the initial meeting to tasting to day of service and fantastic food. Seriously book them now.

Aside from the fabulous food, I utilized their "all inclusive" wedding package and could not be happier with the quality and the price. I was very nervous at the start, just not knowing what I was getting into, but before I even signed a contract my mother spent a lot of time speaking with Jesse to understand everything and Jesse even spent over a full day showing us various venues that would fit our "theme."
From there, Megan took over and helped us with everything from understanding rentals, to giving us advice when booking vendors. This was EXTREMEMLY helpful as I was planning a San Diego wedding from my home in Washington DC.
The weeks leading up to the wedding I was introduced to Petr, our wedding coordinator. He was the mastermind behind everything and helped orchestrate the entire day, from venue lay-out, to how many chairs and tables we would need, to arranging the cake table, to timing the entire night. The whole thing went off without a hitch thanks to Abbey and I could not be happier with the results.
As mentioned earlier the food was INCREDIBLE. The Abbey provides great value with their food as they don't skimp on appetizers or entrée portions. They were very accommodating with various gluten free, vegetarian and vegan guests.
I would highly recommend booking the Abbey for their all inclusive option.

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.
