A Must See Venue
I got married here Jan 2020 and I would give University Club of Pasadena 10+ stars if I could. From the beginning, the whole staff was incredible to work with. Jonathan was incredible and his team went above a beyond to make my wedding day as smooth as can be. I didn't have to stress or worry about any details. They heard and followed through with all my requests and always were so accommodating and attentive whenever I had questions. The presentation of food was spectacular and delicious. Chef is amazing and was kind enough to create a menu of everything we loved. Even months later I am still receiving compliments of how great the food was and that my venue was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed every minute of it and would recommend this venue to all future brides I know.Sent on 05/13/2020

Absolutely recommend if someone is considering a COVID-friendly intimate wedding. We decided to have a small wedding of 40 people and they were able to accommodate both ceremony and reception at their patio space. Depending on the seating arrangement, they host up to 50 for reception outside. Jonathan the event coordinator had so much experience and was very professional and knowledgeable in coordinating weddings. The quality of the service and food overall was excellent.Sent on 09/27/2020

Above & Beyond
My husband and I got married in May 2019 at the University Club so my review is woefully overdue, but I cannot speak highly enough of the entire team at the UCP and of our experience. Jonathan and Kelly made everything feel seamless and were so supportive throughout the entire planning process. They made us feel like they were part of our team, and let me just tell you - if you have parents with strong opinions like we do, they are a team you can't pass up having on your side. There plenty of things to be stressed about out on our day of, but not a single one of them related to our reception. The food, layout, setup, service, and attention to detail and to us and our guests was above and beyond what we could have imagined. THANK YOU UCP!!!
