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!

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!

This was probably my favorite part of wedding planning--the tasting! Iva Lee's food is delicious, and it stood up on the day of the event. Many of my guests commented how good the food was!

I worked closely with Robyn on selections for not only food, but linens, rentals, and the flow of events for the evening. She was extremely patient with my and my parents' questions and emails and was very responsive. Iva Lee's also does weddings at Casa Romantica (our venue) quite often, so they knew exactly what they were doing, and there were no surprises on the day of.

Working with Iva Lee's for our wedding last month was amazing. They not only provided fabulous food and drinks, they secured our rentals, and provided us with their expertise in linen colors and ideas for decor. They also let us use their beautiful tiered dessert platters for our dessert station. We had a formal, plated dinner service with 3 different entrees, and a cocktail reception prior to dinner with incredible passed hors d ouevres. The servers were very attentive and friendly. All of our guests were very impressed with the food, and enjoyed everything about the whole evening. The ladies I worked with at Iva Lee's - Robyn, Bonnie, and Lisa were absolutely wonderful. Thank you Iva Lee's for making our special day so incredible! Dianne and Grant

We hired Iva Lee's Catering for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made! We worked with Robyn throughout the whole process and she was a dream come true. She was very easy to work with and was there to make everything perfect for our wedding day. We thought their menus looked amazing but we were set on having a Mexican fiesta for our wedding. They were able to put together one of the most special mexican dinners I could have ever imagined. It was the most elegant mexican cuisine and really affordable at the same time. The team that served us was amazing and all blended into the day seamlessly. The Iva Lee's team will do it all for you...all the rentals (tables, chairs, plate/glassware). They will set it up and break it down. Cook the most memorable meal in between and serve up some amazing cocktails. If you have a menu or drink of choice - share it with them and they would be happy to prepare it for your special day. Seriously - book Iva Lee's today and you will not be disappointed!
