I can't begin to say enough about Patty Long Catering and their staff. They catered our daughter's wedding at a new venue like it was their own home. Andrea with Ptyy Long was remarkable to work with, had lots of ideas, and made planning so simple. All of our questions were answered quickly and sensitively, and with an amazing amount of patience. The food was delicious and we received so many compliments. In addition, the staff was so responsive to our guests needs, and extremely gracious and courteous. We never had a question during the night nor one complaint. I would recommend Patty Long and her staff for ANY event ---- large, small, formal, or informal. SIMPLY THE BEST!!!
I'd be happy to answer any questions or serve as a reference.

Andrea and Patty Long were absolutely wonderful to work with!! They worked really well with our off site venue, Barnett on Washington. Andrea completely understood everything I was going for. Andrea worked with me as I planned this wedding, answering all questions I had promptly and professionally, even when they were silly things we had probably already covered. She worked with the continual changes I had in the weeks leading up to the wedding on numbers. She checked on us throughout the night, which was amazing. And she ensured we got the chance to sit down and eat, something I never expected to actually get to do!!! Food was excellent, Andrea was a wonderful resource for everything from food choices to time tables to menu cards, and it was a great value for our money. We were extremely happy with Patty Long and wouldn't have done it any other way. One tiny complaint - they served the head table last, so I actually had to grab a server to ask if they were going to serve my husband and I dinner. This was likely because Jeremy and I were up greeting all our tables, more than likely my own fault. Fabulous event and wonderful caterer! Thank you Patty Long and Andrea!!!

Patty Long Catering is an outstanding Catering company. I work and plan a variety of events all over the world so we put a lot of time into selecting the right Catering company for our Wedding. They were professional and extremely easy to work with throughout the planning process: They were attentive, responsive and able to adjust to changes with the menu/décor in a very timely manner. Onsite, they were outstanding! The quality of the food was excellent but it was the service that really made the difference. They brought an outstanding staff to our reception and provided an extremely high-level of service. They were fast, efficient, professional and they actually cared about the experience of all of our guests. I would highly recommend Patty Long Catering for a Wedding Reception. We worked with Andrea Tessereau during the planning phase and she was outstanding. Vatrina was our Banquet Captain and she exceeded all of my expectations. Thanks for everything Patty Long...You guys were the best!

My husband and I hired Patty Long Catering for our wedding at La Perla private event space. Right from the start, Andrea was more than willing to answer every question and concern in a timely manner. She makes it very easy to update your contract at any time and readily responded to my million last minute phone calls. I had some problems with the manager at the reception location and Andrea totally handled it. She made me feel 100% better about it. Our reception turned out beautiful, in large part because of Andrea. The catering team was on top of every detail from the table set up to the clean up after dinner. The event captain found us right before we walked in to tell us to just ask if we wanted or needed anything for the night and he would make it happen. Also, Andrea saved the night when we realized the florist forgot to leave us a toss bouquet. I don't know where she got them from but Andrea found some flowers and brought them to me just in time for the bouquet toss. If you want to relieve some of the stress of wedding planning and feel confident in your catering choice for your big day, choose Patty Long. They did a spectacular job!!

I want to begin this review by saying that I loved my wedding at the 9th Street Abbey Rooftop Deck. It was beautiful, the food was great, and I wouldn't change a thing about the event itself. The coordinators worked with us to create the small (50-guest), intimate, personal wedding we had dreamed of, and they were quick to respond to us any time we had a question or wanted to visit with parents or a vendor.

BUT there was a lot of miscommunication in the 2-3 days leading up to the event, which was really stressful:
*We were told we could set up for our wedding the evening before, which ended up not to be the case. This totally threw off our wedding day plans and led to my husband and his family having to show up on the morning of the wedding instead, which wasn't in the plans.
*They had switched the chairs in the venue to different ones that I hadn't seen before without talking to us (and then claimed they had spoken to us about it - again, not the case!). I was more upset that they'd said they had contacted me when they hadn't.
*When my husband arrived to set up, the layout of the room was completely wrong, even though the contract included the layout we'd agreed upon. My husband and his best man had to carry tables from the storage area into the venue themselves.
*And, lastly, as I was standing outside of the venue waiting to walk down the aisle, the coordinator we'd been working with so closely left us for the other wedding going on downstairs in the main room (the bigger, more expensive wedding), and I was left with a server. Our coordinator didn't reappear until much later in the evening.

The setting up problem and the layout were taken care of by the coordinator (with my husband's guidance), so I do appreciate that she did that. And, as I said in the beginning of the review, the wedding was beautiful in spite of the issues that popped

My wedding back in April was definitely a complicated one. Half of the invitees (50 or so) were coming in from the UK and my British fiance and I were attempting to create a reception that included traditions from both sides of the pond. Giselle, our wedding planner, was absolutely fabulous at arranging this for us. I made constant adjustments to the contract, from beer selections to the timetable, and every email I sent was promptly dealt with. Additionally, a number of things had to be scheduled around my husband's visit to the US, and PattyLong was great about accomodating us.

The overall quality of food, drink and service was amazing. I have 4 married older sisters, and none of them had tastings that allowed them to eat exactly what was going to be served on the day. We were able to design our own menu and taste all of our exact options, and even see the plate design. I could not believe the reasonable prices we had for hall rental and food, and the venue was truly gorgeous. It was 9th Street Abbey, a venue owned by PattyLong, and thus the service ran like clockwork.

I only have 2 very minor downsides. 1) I was told some of the canapes would be saved for the bridal party while we took photos and they were not. 2) The man running the event later in the evening misread our contract and said we had to leave an hour earlier than we did. (However this was corrected within minutes).

Overall, I was extremely happy with PattyLong and 9th Street Abbey. The venue was gorgeous, the service amazing, and the staff personable, prompt and flexible. The food and drinks were unique and just as delicious at the event as they were at the tasting. Combining two different cultures into one reception is not easy, but they made it look that way and I really could not have been happier.

Patty Long Catering was great.

Food:
We were impressed with all of the food we got for our wedding. The hors d'oeuvres were very popular. We had a special request for bacon wrapped gorgonzola dates that they did so well that they were basically inhaled. The salad and cheese station had very high quality greens and a nice selection of cheese. We did not do a children's menu but had the mac&cheese station that covered both the kids and the adult aged kids. The carving station was really tasty - both the beef and the turkey. Overall, everything was really tasty and our guests were really happy with the food.

Decorations:

Patty Long Catering was great.

Food:
We were impressed with all of the food we got for our wedding. The hors d'oeuvres were very popular. We had a special request for bacon wrapped gorgonzola dates that they did so well that they were basically inhaled. The salad and cheese station had very high quality greens and a nice selection of cheese. We did not do a children's menu but had the mac&cheese station that covered both the kids and the adult aged kids. The carving station was really tasty - both the beef and the turkey. Overall, everything was really tasty and our guests were really happy with the food.

We worked with Andrea Tessereau and we could not have been more pleased with the attention she gave to the details for our special day. The staff the day of was overly accommodating of all of our needs and went the extra step meeting ever requested from both us and our guests. The worked seamlessly with us despite long distance communication and coordinated with all of our other vendors and made it run like clockwork on the day of our event. The food was tasty and all of our guests appreciated the variety that the menus provided as well as the quality of their dinner and drink services. Will definitely utilize their services again for any size event.

We used Patty Long for our recent wedding at the St. Louis Science Center. The service we received was exceptional. Andrea was really great to work with and helped to keep everything organized for the day. She was the reason our reception ran so smoothly! I don't know what we would have done without her!

We had the Mexican Buffet and the food was delicious. We got lots of compliments on the food. With Patty Long, you know that you're going to get exceptional service. I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or any other type of event!

My husband and I used Patty Long Catering for our wedding in June 2012. While we were very happy with the communication and helpfulness of our coordinator, the execution of our catering was not good. In summary, our buffet was cold; the wait staff was overheard by my guests complaining about having to serve our wedding cake; we were never asked about what to do with leftover cake and our baker made so much cake that there should have been leftovers. Patty Long Catering did try to make it up to us with some small vouchers to their restaurant, Point of View. We paid over $8,000 for what we thought would be a nice buffet, however: our steak and fish were COLD. Even after the first round of guests were invited to the buffet, the food was STILL COLD. Our appetizers were tasty and hot, but the primary part of the meal was bad. Our vegetables (carrots and snow peas) was flavorless. The only positive part about the buffet was the salad. In addition to the buffet being quite bad, the wait staff was UNPROFESSIONAL. I was informed by wedding guests that they overheard the wait staff complaining about having to serve cake-- an included service. We should have had leftover cake, but there was none left. There should have been enough wedding cake for every guest, and chocolate cake for those who wanted it. Instead, guests were given either wedding or chocolate cake, again, without leftovers. We were not asked about what to do with this, and we believe that as caterers, the staff should have asked *us*. I believe our coordinator did her best to work with us and that the execution of the catering was largely out of her hands, but it does not change the result of the most important part of the catering: the buffet. I decided to wait 3 months to write this review so I could give myself time to mull over my experience. I did not want to write a review in anger. We sincerely hope no couple must serve their guests cold food.

Andrea and her amazing staff at the 9th street abbey were fantastic. We had our ceremony and our reception there back to back and they effortlessly made the transition perfectly. They were always available through email or phone and were willing to work on a menu and look we wanted for the Abbey. So many places only let you do so much with their space, so having an open door policy where we were able to bring ideas to the table too was really cherished.

The selection of heavy hors d’Oeuvres (those mushroom sliders were truly amazing BTW!!) we chose worked out super with the staff doing passed hors d’Oeuvres and stations. All of the food tasted like it did during out tasting and we received plenty of compliments on them. Bartenders were great pourers and super accommodating to our guests, they couldn’t have been better. I just love the look of the venue & loved how they worked with my vendors and not dictating to them like you see at so many other venues. Egos all in check here!

Great Team of people working here. The servers were absolutely wonderful, called me by name and offered congrats, which was very sweet. The food was DELICIOUS!!!!

I have to say my favorite part was the pasta dish in our buffet line, but everything was top quality. Also, a really nice touch: they had kids meals for the younger kids that weren't too keen on our buffet line. Chicken fingers make almost any kid happy! They did an excellent job and everyone was able to eat in a timely manner!

We had our daughters wedding and reception at the City Museum and Patty Long was a choice for catering. My sister had used them for their wedding so we decided to go with Patty Long. The experience was wonderful. We never felt like we were asking too many questions. Working with Jenny Madras was like having your own personal wedding planner. The set up was professional and the food was outstanding.

This venue is absolutely spectacular. We recently moved to St. Louis and our guests were from the D.C. and Philadelphia areas. They remarked all night about how unique and gorgeous the venue looked. Candles on the tables were really pretty with the cathedral windows, and the beauty of the abbey just made the evening magical. The staff there is wonderful and very creative. The food was very good. It was absolutely perfect and the most beautiful wedding ever!

My husband and I had both our ceremony and reception at Patty Long's Ninth Street Abbey in October 2009. It was a 6 p.m. service (the sun was just setting making the stained-glass windows exceptionally beautiful). Our guests greatly appreciated not having to drive between the the ceremony and reception or having to entertain themselves during down time (the cocktail hour immediately followed the ceremony and took place on the adjacent patio area which was covered in white Christmas lights with votive candles on the tables). After a 45-minute cocktail hour (open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres and a cheese and cracker station) we went back inside for dinner. The food was stellar, truly above par compared to other venues in a similar price bracket. Since we chose a buffet with a mashed potato station, our guests were able to go back for seconds (or thirds!), so no one went home hungry. Also, there was enough variety that meat-eaters or vegetarians found plenty to make them happy. In case anyone is curious, this was our menu: roasted pear salad with candied walnuts, roast beef in a port mushroom demi, chicken in a rose sauce, mediterranean pasta, tri-colored rice medley, soulard market vegetables, the FABULOUS mashed potato station, and rolls and butter. For dessert, we had our wedding cake and a dessert buffet (three kinds of pie, cookies, candy, cannolis) and Patty Long's gourmet coffee bar. The coffee bar was huge hit, as was the dessert buffet. But the best part of the entire night (aside from getting married) was the service. It was like having an independent wedding planner, but it was really just the Patty Long staff doing what they do best. Leading up to our wedding, the staff made recommendations for other vendors that were so helpful. Phone calls and emails were returned in a timely manner. And on our wedding day, everything was handled very efficiently, but we never felt rushed. I was totally relaxed, which is something I wish for every bride on her wedding day. And while my husband and I loved the Abbey, we would strongly recommend Patty Long Catering for any venue (the Point of View or the Science Center were strong contenders, but it just had to be the Abbey for us). Hope this helps--Happy planning!
