Everyone is assigned a captain for your event and mine was Fredrico. He was such an amazing person and very helpful! On the day of the wedding, they came to the house and actually cooked the food there. The wait staff we had were so friendly and anytime someone needed a drink, more food, anything they were very quick to respond! Every time they served a new dish, they would come over and ask my wife and I if the food tasted okay. I also had a bartender through the company which she was amazing!!!!!!! At the end of the night they had to stop serving but she told my friend that I am allowed to get more because I'm wearing a white dress! It made me feel so special! The drinks were on point and the service overall was GREAT!!!! I definitely would get them again for catering any event! My mother said out of my sisters' weddings and mine, I had the best food! SCORE!

All and all, the Abbey was fantastic! Our guests consistently complimented us on the food and level of service they received. Working with Megan L. and Amar was a pleasure. Megan is super responsive and has great attention to detail. She even surprised us with a gorgeous tree display for cocktail hour. The day of, Amar made us feel like royalty, not letting us lift a finger. Service went off without a hitch (that I saw) and everything went smoothly. One small item worth mentioning, we did have an issue with our original captain and were forced to switch last minute. Megan, as head of operations, did a wonderful job of restoring our confidence and above all by executing our perfect day!

The Abbey Catering & Event Design Co. made my "pinterest" wedding a reality! The staff and team members were top notch. From the start of my wedding planning until the breakdown after our big day was just nothing short of amazing. Petr was my assigned wedding day coordinator and he was just perfection! They also work with a bunch of different wedding vendors who are as equally professional and amazing at what they do. Picking out The Abbey for our wedding was the best thing we did for our wedding day. Because of them, we had the best team of people to take care of us and all our guest on the most important day of our lives. I am grateful for their impeccable service!
I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!

I used the Abbey Catering & Event Design for an all-inclusive wedding package. All-in-All, I was impressed with most of the items except for the DJ. But that is a whole other review. In regards to the food that The Abbey provides, it's amazing!! We received so many compliments from our guests. I would definitely use The Abbey again but strictly for catering.

The Abbey provided our catering, bartending, and rentals for our wedding and did a fantastic job. Marvin was great to work with in the beginning and then Justin did a great job as our day-of "captain". The only issues we had was with them running out of some of the food items, but they scrambled to get more and the guests hardly noticed. The other issue was our bartender was horrible - he was overwhelmed, slow, and confused from what I heard from the guests.

Words cannot even express how thankful I am that we chose Abbey Catering for our wedding. We went with their all-inclusive wedding package, which was the best choice ever. Me personally, I did not have the time or patience to research all my vendors and make it a DYI wedding. From their all-inclusive package, we went with the following: cake, florist, DJ, videography, photography, linens, and officiant. We mainly worked with Zapher and Robert, who must I say are AMAZING!!! Petr was our day of coordinator, who was fabulous and very professional. We received MANY compliments on how good and excellent the food/service was. I could not be happier with our choice in the catering company. Thank you Abbey Catering for making our wedding day so special, we could not have done it with you.

Everyone knows how stressful wedding planning can be but Abbey catering helped us find the top vendors, our ceremony and reception site and included it all in our package. Best decision Matt and I did together as a couple. We would not change a single thing about our wedding day and it went smoothly because of every single person from Abbey and their vendors. I think it helps that all the vendors have a history working together and all share such passion and pride in what they do. It was a dream wedding in La Jolla. Matt loved the stretch, it was stocked fog, lights and an iPod synced to musiv videos on several tvs inside. It was a picture perfect ceremony at the wedding bowl and then our guest were able to walk just two blocks to the Cuvier Club where they had drinks and the best appetizers ever.  We cannot express how amazing it felt to have all our guest constantly complimenting on how delicious the food was and how nice all the staff and vendors were. You will not be able to find a group of people that are the better at what they do. Everyone was happy, friendly and willing to do anything to make sure we had the perfect day. The owner, Zapher, is the nicest and most sincere person in the world. He went above and beyond what anyone would for a client, he was there every moment - keeping me calm before the ceremony, making sure everything was set in the kitchen, letting us use the limo all night even taking us to our after party, and giving us a care package for a dinner for two and champagne knowing we probably didn't get a chance to really eat dinner. Our coordinator Petr made sure all the decorations and preparations were in place including our three slide shows and all the small details so Matt and I could be stress free all day. We are forever grateful to Zapher, Petr and all the people at Abbey for helping us create the happiest day of our lives.

We Loved the Abbey! Zapher, the owner was the chef for our wedding, which was NYE. The food was amazing. I thought the tasting was amazing, but the night of was to die for. Service at dinner was perfect. We had a great night, and the only think I would have changed was the demeanor and attitude of the bartender. He wasn't very pleasant. Would definitely tell future brides to use the Abbey.

As for the event planning, Petr was amazing. I loved working with him. He was great at giving ideas and feedback, since my style is rather plain. He was available on short notice when I would fly out to San Diego. Very detail oriented. I would hire the Abbey just to use Petr!! If you need help planning, or are planning a destination wedding. The Abbey and Petr can make the process more than easy!

FANTASTIC! Working with The Abbey made planning a wedding easy and fun, and their staff made sure that the wedding was everything we dreamed of. We found The Abbey - and their all inclusive package - at the very beginning of our wedding planning process. Feeling overwhelmed at the variety of choices and level of detail that goes into planning a wedding, we were thrilled to find a caterer that does it all. And they did.

First, we could not have asked for a better coordinator. We had the pleasure of working with Petr, who went above and beyond to ensure that every detail of our wedding was executed perfectly. And it was. In the planning phases, Petr was always prompt in responding to emails and thorough in answering (and anticipating) our questions. Throughout the planning process, he was well-organized, thorough, and extremely pleasant. On the day of the wedding, Petr made sure that the venue was decorated exactly as we had envisioned, that the everything ran smoothly, and that everyone had a great time. Even though Petr had numerous other weddings that same week, he worked extremely hard to make sure our expectations were exceeded and he was always polite and courteous to everyone. He even dressed to match our color scheme! Petr was an absolute rockstar!

We were also extremely pleased with the quality of the food served at our wedding. Both the appetizers and entrees were delicious (although we only had a few bites!). We were pleasantly surprised by how well executed the food was, particularly given the difficulty of catering a high-quality hot meal at a venue that doesn't allow any open flames (San Diego Museum of Art - another great vendor). We were also pleased with the coordination of the food service. Jaime, the banquet captain, and The Abbey servers and staff were both efficient and courteous.

As part of our all-inclusive package, we chose photography, flowers, cake, and a DJ. For other couples considering an all-inclusive package with The Abbey, here is a brief review of each vendor we worked with as part of our package:

We chose Deb Shields as our photographer. A great choice! Deb clearly understood what we were looking for. She made sure to get the specific photos we wanted, but always put her own creative spin on every shot - which was exactly what we wanted. She was responsive, prompt, easy to communicate with, and a ton of fun to work with. While we haven't yet received our wedding photos back (it's only been a week), we did have the opportunity to get to know Deb during our engagement photo shoot (which we definitely recommend to other couples). She turned the engagement photos around quickly, and we were more than impressed with the artistic value and superb quality of the photos. We can't wait to see the wedding photos!

For our flowers, we worked with Artquest Flowers. Arturo was extremely professional, prompt and responsive, and highly skilled in the art of flowers. He understood exactly what we were looking for, and worked with us to execute our vision within our budget. The centerpieces were phenomenal, and my bridal bouquet was exquisite. Everything was perfect, and our guests were so impressed by the flowers at our wedding. Another excellent vendor!

We chose Flour Power for our wedding cake, after initially meeting with another bakery, and were totally wowed by Flour Power. They had a huge range of cake and frosting flavor options (all of which were delicious), highly skilled cake decorators, a lovely tasting salon, and wonderful customer service to help us design the perfect cake. Flour Power was absolutely the right choice for our wedding cake, and we can't wait until our one-year anniversary to enjoy more delicious Flour Power cake.

Lastly, we chose the DJ services of DJRandy3 as part of our package. Randy and Blake were great to work with, and it was evident that they are experts at what they do. We were pleased with the music and lighting at the wedding - and they made sure that our guests had a good time.

Many thanks to everyone at The Abbey - especially Zapher, Petr, and Jaime - for making our wedding such a wonderful success!

Abbey is hands down a dream of a wedding caterer. Located in the beautiful area of downtown La Jolla (a plus if your wedding is in the area, which is a very popular spot for wedding), their prices were surprisingly reasonable and flexible and their food is great. On top of it, the crew is so friendly and understanding and responsive! Jaime is the best captain ever, he's very very flexible, full of great ideas, and always there to offer good advice on saving money and improving the quality of the dinner. He was very attentive to us and the guests during the dinner, and the ground crew exhibited a high level of service, according to all my guests. I would definitely recommend them, I wouldn't change my vendor if I had to do it all over again. :)

The food - AMAZING! And if you don't like it the first time, tell them what you'd prefer and they'll do it again and knock it out of the park. My first experience with the new chef was meh, but I told them what I wanted and they blew my mind on the second tasting. It was more delicious than I expected when I described what I wanted.

The package - I got a great deal on the package, I must say. But I wanted to upgrade everything! E.g. bigger flower arrangements, more hours with the videographer, more hours with the photographer, the whole shabang and that added up quick. I think in the end, even though I was completely happy with my vendors, I feel like I could have gotten more for about the same price.

Some vendors I LOVED - Deborah Shields, DJ Mike Thomas (Higher LEvel Sound), Arturo @ Artquest, the Abbey Limo, and of course the Abbey Food! Plus we got a week in the Maui Condo for free with our upgraded package. It was amazing, and let me tell you, Maui is NOT cheap so this was a HUGE deal.

Overall, I'd recommend the Abbey as a caterer, but research your vendors and options before doing the package.

Robert! Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding adventure. Everything was perfect and all my guests still rave about it being the best wedding! Brides, if you are looking for a professional catering and wedding design company to trust with your wedding, look no further. not only was Abby's all inclusive wedding package below $10,000 below our budget (thanks Dad,) but they went beyond my expecations in every way! One thing I would recommend to brides is to take your coordinators advise and select your vendors as soon as possible. When we were selecting photographers, for example, our first choice was already committed on our date. However, our second choice, was available and she, Katy with Gemini Photography, was nothing short of a dream. The pictures are absolutely beatiful and I could not be happier! One more word to anyone with an all inclusive package, select the Maui condo. Wow, it is beyond amazing right on the best beach in Maui. Such a deal! We used our saved money for a down payment on a condo. Thanks Abby Catering!

There was some miscommunication with our coordinator Alison in the weeks leading up to the wedding, but she made sure that everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. I used the Abbey and worked out an inclusive package (catering, photography, videography, rentals, coordination) which saved us a lot of time, planning, worry, and money. Zapher and his team are always accommodating and when we had issues with the invoicing, they worked with us to clarify any discrepancies and corrected any mistakes on their part. I only put 4 under responsiveness because it took me a while to get a response from Alison and Krissi on many occasions and because of some miscommunications.

The food was great (chef Matt). just a few people had less salad. Flowers by Arturo were beyond gorgeous. Servers were professional to the max (and cute too). Kudos to assistant coordinator Corey who was at our side constantly. Photography by Deb Shields was amazing. Still waiting on video from Tareq. I'm sharing this because now I know that the Abbey maintains a good network of vendors with which to partner for package deals. Check them out. They'll win you over at the tasting, make you want more with their accommodating pricing, and be bffs for life after the wedding day.

Holy cow, Abbey saved the day. They were great from beginning to end. We originally were working with a different caterer, had done the tasting and all that jazz. The food was good, but I wasn't "wowed" by it. So, about 6-8 weeks before the wedding we decided to change our idea all together. Our first caterer wasn't really responsive to it and we waited a week or so to hear back from them. My sister decided to call Abbey Catering with our idea of having a brunch for dinner and within one week we have a proposal, several revisions, and a final menu. The price was great, the people were fantastic (Thanks Alana and Petr), and they were very professional. They are very familiar with the Bernardo Winery and it showed. They also provided great brunch food...waffles, omelette station, carved steak sandwhiches, OJ, coffee, fruit, etc. Everyone raved about the idea of brunch and they made it happen with the quality. Thanks so much!

I cannot even begin to describe how fabulous the Abbey Catering is. Petr, Zapher and team are top notch when it comes to customer service. They were an absolute breeze to deal with throughout the planning process and incredibily accomodating. Their service the day of our wedding was well over and above what we could have ever asked for. And the food...yum yum yum. We actually ate!! And all of our guests have made it a point to tell us how fantastic the food was (which is not often heard at weddings). Not to mention their prices are unbelievable. I highly highly reccomend them.

Five Stars for the Abbey!!!! I was so happy with their service from start to finish! They completely worked within my budget (and even threw in extras in the end). Their food was delicious and they offered an exquisite tasting for my wedding planner, mother, and I. There is no more I can say but this- if you are able to book The Abbey, DO IT!!!
FYI: The tasting room looks shady on the outside, but don't worry!

Abbey Catering provided our dessert bar as well as our open liquor bar. We were incredibly satisfied with the service we received. The desserts were fantastic and everything was gone at the end of the night! We also appreciated how flexible and accommodating they were and how they were open to all of our ideas. Their dessert tasting might have been our favorite part of the entire wedding planning process!! :)

The Abbey Catering and Event Design helped make our wedding go off without a hitch! (pun intended). The Planners Petr Trebin and Robert Battoe were top notch and seriously took all of the fear out of throwing our wedding! They handled vendors, decor, Petr even put the flowers on our cake. Makes us want to throw another party with them just superb! Great food too! If you go with them, be sure to do the tasting it was quite an amazing experience!
