I just got married at Casa Romantica in September and Iva Lee's was one of their recommended caterers. Once we went in for the tasting and consultation, my husband and I decided that this was the best option for us. The food was delicious and the presentation looked great, and we were able to personalize a few dishes to our tastes. We also had a special request for a cocktail at the wedding and they pulled it off without a problem! As for the coordination, this was absolutely the best money we spent on the whole wedding! Miya was an absolute dream to work with -- she is so detail oriented and responsive, and she was in touch with all of our vendors throughout the planning. On the day of, she handled everything so that our families weren't distracted, and she made everyone in the wedding party so comfortable. Having the coordination, rentals, and catering/bar all together in one company made everything so easy. I would definitely recommend working with Iva Lee's, and especially with Miya for an amazing event coordinator!

If you are planning a wedding and want the best venue, catering and a coordinator that makes your special day "PERFECT" then get married at the Casa Romantica, catered by Iva Lee's and ask for Miya. So Casa Romantica was the perfect venue for us, Iva Lee's was the perfect caterer but I got to say that Miya is what made everything just PERFECT!! From the day myself and my wife met her, we knew she was the right coordinator. Im not much of a review writer but I had to let everyone know that Miya truly was one of if not the easiest and best choices we made for our wedding. Always available, flexible, organized, listens, suggests, supports, comforting and the list goes on. When our day finally arrived, we truly had no concerns about how the day would go. We just knew that Miya was going to be there and everything..I mean everything would be perfect.... and it was!!! I would and will personally recommend Miya to any family friend or future couples looking for that perfect coordinator.
Miya, thank you for everything!! YOU ROCK!!!

va Lee's did the catering for our wedding at the Villa San Juan Capistrano on 10/315. The Villa has an exclusive contract with Iva Lee's for the food and beverage service. At first we were a little hesitant about being locked into a caterer because we were scared the food might not be good and then we wouldn't be able to change. The owner of Iva Lee's also owns a restaurant so we had our family try the restaurant before we booked, and they said the food was just "ok." We went ahead and booked anyway because we loved the venue so much.

When we went for our tasting with Iva Lee's the food was actually really good - the catering menu is different than the restaurant menu. After the wedding everyone told us the food was amazing! Our photographer even told us it was the best wedding food she had ever had! I do have to say that they have changed their catering menu, so they no longer offer what we ordered, but I would definitely cater from them again. They are also pretty flexible and we were able to mix and match sides from different entrees to make a dish to our liking. We also wanted to change the appetizer selection and they were able to do it at a very reasonable price. The mini chicken and waffles appetizer was great!

The bartenders and servers were all super polite and attentive and they always had smiles on their faces! I also have to say that the office staff is super friendly and helpful! We live in northern California so it was hard for us to come do tastings, especially since they only offer them once weekly but they were able to squeeze us in the day before Thanksgiving since that was about the only time we would be down south during a weekday.

Food was very important for us on our wedding day. Iva Lee's delivered! Everyone was raving about the food. Iva Lee's worked with us to design a duo plate that was savory and provided variety. We had braised short rib, pan seared salmon, whipped potatoes, and honey glazed carrots. We also wanted a snack at the end of the night. Iva Lee's helped provide their Angus beef sliders and delicious chocolate milk shakes to guests. The milkshakes had little pieces of chocolate in them. They were so good. The bar drinks were also delicious. The Lover's lemonade was a big hit, as well as the moscow mule. We provided an open bar, which was an excellent value. Iva Lee's also provided printed menus, free of charge, for each guest, a special touch that other vendors do not do. Also all the food is cooked on site, which is also not the norm. I believe this helps increase in the quality of the food. The staff was also amazing, kind, courteous, and attentive. I cannot wait to go visit their restaurant location in San Clemente.

Thank you Iva Lee's!

Iva Lee's was a wonderful caterer. We got so many compliments on how great the food was. Everyone there was great to work with, so accommodating, and they totally nailed our signature cocktails :) We liked the food so much, we had our rehearsal dinner at their restaurant as well out on the patio (which worked out wonderfully)!

Iva Lee's food catered is just as amazing as it is in their restaurant. They are super easy to work with from helping me choose the right menu options to reworking the numbers for me a thousand times during the hectic RSVP period a few weeks before the big day. The tasting was super fun and they even let us taste the wine! I highly recommend the lamb chops for your appetizer!! The chef even made a custom peach tart for us to round out the appetizers with a little variety. Our dinner was local halibut (blackened on request) and their amazing short ribs that fall apart in your mouth. So sooooo happy with our wedding day!

The team at Iva Lee’s is EXCELLENT at what they do! They catered our wedding at Casa Romantica in April and we were so impressed. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We had the Supreme Bar package which kept our guests happy all night! The service staff was friendly and professional. I loved that Iva Lee’s worked with my venue and vendors often so everything went very smoothly. Miya and her team coordinated the rentals through Signature Party Rentals and was extremely helpful with all of the many, many changes I made over the year of planning. They answered every e-mail and every question so quickly and professionally. It kept the planning stress-free and easy! Overall, we are extremely happy that we went with Iva Lee’s and will definitely be back at their restaurant soon for more delicious food!
