We had our wedding reception here in September and it was amazing! Everything went just as I had hoped and planned. We booked the Abbington in February for our date and from the very beginning Tara was responsive to all emails and willing to work with our schedules to show us around. They even showed us around twice so that we were positive before we put any money down. The hall is beautiful, no extras were necessary to make it look any better. They did not seem to increase their prices just because it was a wedding like other banquet halls seem to. They were upfornt about everything, including incentives that they had for having our wedding on a Friday. They have many great companies that they work with to give you a starting point for everying such as hotels, photographers, bands, and dj's. Everyone from the Abbington that we spoke with were professional and caring. I never felt as though I had to worry about my reception! The food was fantastic and my guests are still talking about everything, they have options that everyone will love. On the night of my reception they were even more helpful than I could have hoped. They made sure that I had eaten, that I was able to slip away to use the restroom, and that I had a drink if i wanted one! I highly reccomend the Abbington to anyone who wants a stress free reception!

We immediately fell in love with Abbington for its elegance and class and knew it is perfect for our July 2017 wedding!!! Throughout the entire planning process Tara and Michelle were dedicated, attentive and prompt to answer any and all questions I had. Attention to detail is very important to me and I was not disappointed whatsoever. I appreciate the entire planning staff respecting all my decor preferences and wishes! Compliments to the Chef and the entire kitchen staff for delicious food, cooked to perfection! The entire menu was delicious and we received so many compliments on the Chicken Piccata and filet mignon!! Our captain for the night, Diane, is such a pleasant and friendly lady! Diane assisted us throughout the entire evening, looked after us and made sure we are taken care of! Both our bartender and our Martini bartender were extremely pleasant and very friendly!! Their service was fantastic and prompt. I apologize for not remembering their names. Our reception took place in the South Ballroom and it is such a beautiful space and room!! Thank you Tara and Michelle for such a seamless planning process! You are both very passionate about your work and it shows! We could not be happier with Abbington and its class and elegance. Thank you!! Roxana and Dan

There is no match for this venue. It is by far the best place to host a party. The food was amazing, the people are kind and accommodating, not to mention the venue is gorgeous! I can't thank Tara and the Abbington crew enough for all they did for my wedding.

I had driven past Abbington many times but was cautious because banquet halls are always so dark and cheesy. We fell in love as soon as we walked in the door. It was very glamorous without being over the top. The north ballroom was the perfect location for our day event, with the windows pouring in with natural light and the new patio outside! Our coordinator Alyssa was amazing. She responded quickly to our emails, she was able to incorporate some special touches for our brunch reception (being able to access online menus during the research process was especially helpful), and she was just super fun to work with! The value of our reception package was unbelievable, and they also included assistance with some decor set-up, which meant I didn't need a day-of coordinator. The day of our event was a whirlwind, but it still makes me teary to think about how our wedding was everything we were hoping it would be. Even now our guests rave about the food and the staff. Our captain, Javier, was an angel. I dropped some tortellini right on the front of my dress (I know, I obviously don't make good wedding day choices.), and he was right by my side within seconds with a cloth and some club soda. Crisis averted. Each of my guests had a story about their servers who were excellent and tried to learn their names and provide the best experience possible. I will recommend Abbington to anyone who will listen. Don't let the Walmart nearby fool you; this place is DuPage County's best kept secret.

The staff, service, food, and atmosphere, are all top notch at the Abbington. I had my wedding on Saturday, February 18, 2017 and I couldn't wait to write this review, because everything was above and beyond exceptional. From the moment I toured the Abbington I felt my experience there was excellent. Tara, helped me plan and organize an unforgettable and fantastic wedding. Tara was always available to answer my many emails and questions throughout the planning process and was an absolute delight to work with. Our food tasting was phenomenal and our wedding day meal was outstanding. All our guests raved about the food and extremely attentive wait staff. The North Ballroom was decorated beautifully and the feel for the night of my wedding so romantic and elegant. My husband and I are beyond grateful and would highly recommend the Abbington to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

I have nothing but positive and great things to say about this venue. Usually people have one little thing they would tweak but I really don't have anything. Before our guests came into the room my husband and I were able to go in and if we wanted to make any changes or anything it was done right away. I would recommend anyone to this venue for your reception. Tara did an amazing job and was there the whole night in case we had any further questions for concerns.

Tara and the staff was very patient with all of my questions but helped be fully and respectfully. The waitstaff during the reception did all they could to be accommodating. From what I have heard from my guests, the waitstaff was helpful with them as well. The food was phenomenal!! The hall is beautiful for any style of wedding. I recommend it to all.

The Abbington was beyond amazing. I was so nervous because i thought we had to figure everything out on our wedding day and there were two people with us each step of the way. They brought me to so much ease and were amazing. The food was GREAT. Every single 260 guest i had enjoyed the food and the service! Even before the wedding Tara new the answer to every question and brought me at ease each step of the way. I highly recommend this hall !

Tara and her staff were incredible to work with! We had our wedding reception at The Abbington on June 4, 2016 and it was absolutely perfect. We booked this venue a year and a half ahead of time and throughout the entire planning process, Tara was always extremely responsive and helpful. Our wedding reception was equally fantastic and the food was incredible. People are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the food was! I would absolutely recommend this venue to any couple looking for the perfect location for their big day. You will not be disappointed! Thank you all again for everything! - Brittany & Eric (06.04.2016)

You cannot go wrong with the Abbington. I worked with Tara for a year and a half. She was very helpful and responded quickly to email and questions I had throughout the whole process. The venue is beautiful and well kept and the food is amazing-definitey not just "wedding food!" When I saw my room the day of, every detail I requested was executed perfectly-it was truly amazing. Several of our guests commented on how great the reception was; from the food to decor and service. Some even told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a great venue with a receptive and professional staff. A+ !!! -Gloria

We had a great experience with Kathy at Abbington Banquets! From our first meeting, Kathy was very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in us and our wedding. You can tell she really likes what she does. I left feeling that she would do everything in her power to make everything perfect on our wedding day. We were not disappointed! The whole process went smoothly. Kathy was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls and followed up with us leading up to the wedding. Our wedding day was wonderful! The room was set up so beautifully and exactly how we had discussed. There was no event the day before our wedding, so my mom, sister, and I were able to go in and set up our centerpieces. The room looked stunning. I loved the staircase for us to use during introductions, and it worked out perfect that day. I also loved having the bridal room upstairs to be able to have my own bathroom that was big enough for a wedding dress :) The food was fabulous! It was so delicious! I received SO many compliments on my wedding food. Everyone loved it. We had so much fun at our wedding, and the room was beautiful. Thank you, Kathy!!
