  • Highly recommended! We had a beautiful December wedding ceremony and reception for 30 guests in the Courtyard of the Plaza de Magdalena. We could not have asked for better hospitality, attentiveness, and warmth from Patti and Delia and the rest of the staff! The staff at the PDM created a beautiful, elegant, and cozy atmosphere for our special day! The servers did such a wonderful job that some of our guests commented on it! The food is very delicious (try the sun-dried tomato soup--it's amazing) and their prices were very reasonable! We also had a fabulous wedding coordinator, Ashley, who had experience with weddings at this venue before, and she is also highly recommended!

  • The perfect venue! Excellent service and responsiveness from Patti. She was easy to work with, helpful and kind. The food from sundried tomato was to die for. Many of our guests are hard to please and even they raved about the food and venue. Memorable in the best way possible.

  • I stumbled upon Plaza De Magdalena after three years of looking for the perfect venue (including: lots of drama, debating over a big or small wedding, or no wedding at all, etc). It was honestly was such a memorable day for me, because after meeting Patti and hearing all about what Plaza could offer me on my wedding (bonus: it was within my budget, private, clean, intimate, not to mention catered by the delicious, Sundried Tomato) we knew right away that we had found the perfect venue! Since the first day I met Patti, she made wedding planning for me a complete breeze. She answered EVERY question I had, and was so extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. She really went above and beyond for my family and I! My husband and I really wanted amazing food at my wedding, and I can happily say that Sundried Tomato was absolutely delicious! We had many guests come up and tell us that it was some of the best wedding food they've ever had! Patti also made sure to accommodate me, as... Read more

  • I'll start by thanking Patti and her wonderful staff at Plaza de Magdalena, you guys really helped me and my family make my sister's wedding a night we will never forget! Patti was super professional, responsive, flexible with our requests, and really understood what we were trying to accomplish. It would probably be really hard to have a bad wedding at Plaza de Magdalena given the amazing customer service, beautiful venue, and incredible food!

  • We ran into some hiccups planning our wedding. 2 weeks before our wedding date our original venue called us to tell us our venue wasn't going to be done with construction. With little notice, we called Patti and she was more then willing to accommodate us. Patti worked above and beyond to ensure my husband and I were happy and made absolutely sure that our day was what we dreamed of. I couldn't be happier with how the day went. Our guest are still talking about how much fun they had and everyone is raving about how good the food was. I couldn't be more impressed with the service that was provided. I would highly recommend Plaza de Magdalena to everyone

  • We used Sundried Tomato as our catering for our wedding and absolutely do not regret that decision at all! Patti was the BEST! She was so responsive and soooo easy to work with. They made a point to put some appetizers in the bridal suite for us so when we got to the reception we got to enjoy the delicious food before the grand entrance! They even packed up some extra appetizers for us to take with us after the reception! The food was so delicious and I had tons of guests telling me how great it was. I would 100% recommend them for any kind of gathering!

  • We began the planning of my daughters wedding 2 years ago and the staff at Plaza de Magdalena A Catering and Event Venue by Sundried Tomato, walked us through step by step. Candace and Kyle had a spectacular wedding. Thank you to all the staff that helped put this together and those that were on hand the night of.

  • The staff there is amazing! We arrived early & they provided a WiFi password & let us relax inside a gameroom. Patti is an amazing coordinator throughout the process that replies to emails within minutes! Delia and her staff were more than great! They made sure we ate comfortably and brought our drinks at all times! Delia also provided great communication with our cash bar when reaching our limit. Thank you for everything! Velazquez

  • Their service is great, very professional, attentive to guests needs, good presentation, great coordinating during planning. I chose to have Sundried Tomato cater for our wedding even though their quote was higher than another. Our venue had a preferred/required vendor list. Reason why I decided to go with them...the complimentary tasting went so well! So many flavorful options and all so delicious! The big winners were both appetizers; the mini BLTs and chicken spring rolls with cilantro pesto sauce. Several guests let me know how much they enjoyed them, and I enjoyed them too. Sadly, the feedback on the main courses wasn't great and unfortunately, (especially because it was my wedding) I had to agree. The main course chicken was dry, and once the chicken is dry, you're left with bad texture and no flavor. We also has tri-tip which was supposed to be served with a sweet brandy sauce, but the day of the wedding they served some type of gravy instead. No one told me that'd be happening ... Read more

  • Beautiful venue! It's tucked away in a courtyard in downtown San Juan Capistrano. There is a parking garage close for guests as well as elevator access. The courtyard itself is a little small. Our wedding was roughly 160 people and we had to have a few of those that came late sit on the staircase. I didn't have any guests complain about the courtyard size though. The indoor reception room is wonderful! So many much features you can add to your reception. Patti was easy to work with and responded to my questions asap. The food from Sundried tomato was delicious. We had a lot of compliments on our tray-passed appetizers and buffet. Like the majority of SoCal weddings there are a lot of additional fees. As our wedding day got closer and we started to think about the decor more, it seemed as if there was a fee to use anything additional with our venue, e.g. the projector, arch way, etc. It's just silly to be because all of those things are already at the venue but they make you pay an addi...

  • The quality of food from Plaza de Magdelena put us over the edge when selecting them as our vendor and they certainly delivered at our reception. Guests were very vocal about how wonderful the menu was. We would certainly work with them again, given the opportunity.
