    100% Recommend Abbey Catering!

    We had a friend direct us to Abbey Catering, and we're so happy that they did. Their team is thorough, experienced, and pleasant to work with, and they executed on our big day perfectly! We would highly recommend their All-Inclusive Package, as their vendor list is just as qualified and awesome as the Abbey team. Our month-of Coordinator was Petr – he's the best!

    Delicious Food and Great Service

    Our venue (the Junipero Serra Museum) provided us with a preferred list of vendors and when we had our first introductory call with the Abbey Catering, we knew they were the one. Robert took the time to chat with us and help us navigate the world of wedding planning in San Diego. Even prior to booking them, he spent time chatting with us and genuinely gave us ideas and support to go on our way with our vendor search and decision making.

    The Abbey was responsible for the catering and bar service at our event. A few months prior to our event, we were assigned our event captain Petr Trebin! HE IS FABULOUS! We loved his enthusiasm, attention to detail and style and focus on ensuring that everyone was well taken care of!

    Our event was seamless and everything went incredibly smooth. Upon entering our reception, the Martini Tree brought the wow factor! The hanging drinks caught the eye of our guests and warmly welcomed them into the reception. Many of our guests raved over the food and went out of their way to stress how delicious everything tasted. We chose a handful of delicious tray passed appetizers including the bacon wrapped figs, cream cheese wontons and soyrizo quesadillas and for dinner, chose the Abbey Signature Salad (mixed greens with walnuts) and Dual Entree plate with short rib, panko crusted chicken, truffle mashed potatoes and vegetables.

    Through out our event, Petr was a ninja- behind the scenes ensuring that everything was going as planned. He worked hand in hand with our coordinator and ensured we were well fed and that we had food readily at our disposal (SO IMPORTANT on your wedding day). He plated us all of our apps in a beautiful display. We actually felt full from how much we ate, which we hear is so rare from couples on their wedding day and were grateful for how attentive Petr was.

    In addition, our guests shared that the bartenders were rockstars! The drinks were pouring and it made for an epic dance party on the dance floor.

    The Abbey came highly recommended by our venue coordinator and we understand why. We had a great experience with them and are glad they were a part of our big day!

    Great good and service

    We used Abbey Catering for the food and service for our wedding, as well as their wedding coordinator service. They were great to work with from the start. They were all so helpful and attentive to our questions and needs. The food was delicious, and we heard from multiple guests how much they enjoyed it. In addition to that, our wedding coordinator, Chuck, was the best! He took care of so much for us, both before the big day, and the day of the ceremony. It was such a relief not to have to worry about things on our big day. Chuck took care of us, and the day was just magical. Thanks Chuck and everyone at Abbey Catering!
