I had a vision of a romantic and intimate wedding, and Plaza de Magdalena delivered! Our guests haven't stopped raving about the food and the venue, both were a huge hit! We did the Teafilo Mexican food menu, and guests keep commenting that it's the best wedding food they've had. We totally agree! We couldn't have had a better experience planning our wedding. Everyone at the venue was very easy to work with, and Patti made the whole planning process very easy. It's located in the historic San Juan Capistrano area that adds to its charm. I would highly recommend Plaza de Magdalena for any bride searching for a beautiful venue.

I can not say enough wonderful things about Plaza!! We just had our dream wedding there in August! We have had so many friends and family members come up to us and say it was the best wedding they have ever attended!! They thought the venue was beautiful, intimate, and the food was the best they have EVER had!! We had 150 guests comfortably with some space to spare. The biggest hits were the chicken spring roll and tomato soup shots as appetizers and the mustard pepper salmon was a huge hit!! Honestly Patti, the venue coordinator, is heaven sent!!! She is beyond sweet, flexible, professional, and literally made the whole planning process a breeze! I highly recommend Plaza De Magdalena!!Sent on 09/10/2018

This place is a hidden gem in the heart of SJC! It has a Spanish-style vibe to it, but the venue can fit whatever wedding style/theme you are going for. The courtyard and reception area are large, but give you an intimate setting with you and your guests.
Venue: do not let the busy streets and heavy foot-traffic steer you away from choosing this place. The venue is at the bottom of the plaza, and it provides you with the privacy you want from the public and you can't hear noise from what's happening on the streets. The reception area is nice and open and is a blank canvas for however you want to set up your day. They even have these lighted windows that you can customize to your heart's desire.
Food: We had the buffet. There was plenty and it was absolutely delicious! People kept talking about the food even after the wedding. My only regret is not eating to my heart's content on the day of.
Patti: I can't write this review without talking about Patti. She is the big boss there and she knows her stuff in and out. Any question you have, she has an answer for it. If you want to change something at the last minute (like we did), she is more than flexible with our requests. If you need vendors, she has a list of you. Every single person she recommended to us, we were not disappointed by. I don't think my 1+ years of planning this day would have been so smoothly if Patti had not been there since day one.
