Some strong recommendations if you use this caterer:
1) Never give them your credit card number.
2) Overestimate your guest list or you will not have enough food for your guests.
3) Know that they will increase your per person rate if your rsvp count does not match the original estimate.
4) Don't order fresh fruit.

1) We paid a $2000 deposit via credit card on 9/30/13. On 10/2/13, we were charged an additional $2000. We were promised a refund would be processed the next day. It was not processed until 10/10. On 11/14 we were charged an additional $2000. I asked at that point to be refunded our original $2000 plus the $2000 extra. The owner refused to let us out of our contract. I worried until wedding day that this company was having financial problems and was floating their debt on our (and possibly other clients) credit cards. The owner did give us $250 discount each time they overcharged. So, if you decide to do business with Jim Lee Events, use only checks - never, never give them access to your credit card. The bank has changed our account number so they cannot charge us again.

2) We had rsvp's for 188 people. Approximately 30 who had said they would attend were not able to come. If we had had our full headcount, there would not have been enough food for all guests. We took very little food home with us at the end of the reception.

3) Our rsvp count dropped to 188 from our original estimate of 250. The caterer increased the cost per person when we told them the headcount. At that point, I was just hoping they would show up and did not protest.

4) The fresh fruit was neither fresh or plentiful. When we arrived after many guests had already been served, the fruit was virtually gone and was only sparsely replenished. I removed from my grandson's plate several grapes that were black with rot or mold. I would not serve fruit like that to guests in my home and was embarrassed to serve it to our reception guests.

Wow! I cant say enough about Jim Lee Events. We worked with both Jim & Sean through the planning process. They created a custom menu for us. It seems their team of chefs can do anything you throw at them. They stayed within the budget we requested, took care of all of our rental needs and helped us select our other vendors as well. Jose was the catering manager on the day of and he was on top of everything. He made plates for both of us to eat in the bridal suite prior to our intro into the Reception. So we actually got to eat without interruption from all of our guests. I would strongly recommend this to every couple. AND.. I swear the food was even better than it was at our tasting! We received so many comments from our guests about the food and service. The staff were all so friendly, helpful and man did they hustle. We're telling all of our friends to use this caterer and my boss is going to use them for our company holiday party. Thanks Jim Lee for a Perfect Wedding!

Cannot recommend highly enough! Jim and Sean were great to work with--answered all of my questions quickly and gave us a very affordable meal option. And the food was AMAZING! We have had many, many wedding guests tell us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We did a salad, hill country meats, green beans, and macaroni and cheese balls. Their wait staff did a great job, as did their bar tenders.

Wow! Jim Lee Events was outstanding. We had so much assistance from Sean and Jim and their much needed guidance could not have been more appreciated. From the beginning of my planning process, I loved that they were willing to work with my "style" and the type of food I was looking for.
I loved that Sean asked me about our favorite types of restaurants and styles of food and came up with a special menu tailored to our tastes.
They absolutely nailed it! From the pecan crusted appetizers to the fried macaroni and cheese martini bar to the end of the night breakfast burrito and chocolate chip cookie pass,
Jim Lee Events is a home run for anyone looking for an amazing catering vendor and exceptional customer service.
We would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding- or any event for that matter!

We hired Jim Lee to cater our wedding, and were very happy with the product. The staff was friendly and all of our guests complimented the food and bar tender. I only have one complaint, and it's a small one: we had a vegetarian option for our vegetarian guests, but it was not on display--the guests had to ask for it. This is fine, but I didn't know in advance that the guests would have had to ask for it. Evidently there was a sign on the table, but many people didn't see it. Had I known, I would have given my vegetarian friends a heads up so they would know to ask. Again, a small complaint.

The site manager had an entire meal ready for my husband and I immediately after the ceremony so we could spend the reception greeting our guests, and this was a BRILLIANT idea from Sean, because once we got to the reception after eating in a private room upstairs, we never sat down again.

If you are considering the fried mac-n-cheese martini bar, the answer is simple: HELL YES. It was the best thing ever.

The food at our wedding was absolutely delicious! I still have friends and family talking about it! Jim Lee helped us create a unique menu at our budgeted price. I looked at several caterers in Dallas and you definitely get the most bang for your buck with Jim Lee. I was only disappointed with a few things. First, they completely forgot the champagne flutes, so people were drinking champagne out of wine glasses. I know it's not the biggest thing, but when I requested and paid for champagne glasses, I would like them to be there. Second, I requested that for the cocktail hour, the servers already have wine poured and ready to go since 150 people would all be rushing to the bar. That didn't happen (even after I repeated the request just before the ceremony). There was a long line at the bar and it took too long for people to get a drink. They should really have planned for and anticipated this. Overall the food was good, there were just few details that didn't go to plan.

When planning our wedding, we tried out a few different caterers and thought we had our mind made up until we tried Jim Lee. The food was so delicious it made us think twice. Jim Lee prices their food very fairly, but their service can be more expensive than other caterers, but I assure you this is for a reason. Sean at Jim Lee is the best! He wasn't our catering manager but he took care of us through the planning process and answered countless questions of mine. We have gotten so many compliments on our wedding food selections and I really think the food was just as good in wedding quantity as when we tried it just us two. They even packed us a to go box so we got to enjoy one more Jim Lee dinner Sunday night. We did experience just a few hiccups along the way, but they were always resolved promptly and professionally. One complaint I do have is that we brought in our own alcohol and got to take home everything not fully consumed and for whatever reason, ended up with nearly 8 bottles of half drank wine. I would just recommend going forward to avoid wasting that the team didn't open so many bottles until others were finished but this is very easy to fix. Overall, I was extremely pleased with Jim Lee and would recommend this caterer to a friend!

I got many, many compliments on the food at my wedding. I had some general ideas about what I wanted, and the staff at Jim Lee Events helped me create a fun, delicious menu that appealed to all of my guests. They pretty much can make whatever you ask for, which was nice. But they also offer suggestions if you aren't exactly sure what you want. They offer a tasting of most of your menu items once you have selected a menu. They set up a cute lunch for two and show you how the dish will be presented. They make any adjustments you want and are very flexible. At the reception, they made pretty displays of the buffet tables and everything looks really impressive. It is not a problem if your vendor doesn't have an actual kitchen. The staff is very nice and they will supply a bartender if you need one. They also can supply champagne flutes and the staff will cut your cake. Overall I had a very pleasant experience working with Jim Lee Events and I will highly recommend them! A special shout out to Sean and Rachel, they were the two people I worked with. They were friendly, quick to respond and offered suggestions and alternatives whenever I needed them.

Well just like the rest of the brides have said, this is a great vendor. The price is fantastic and service and responsiveness is great. We dealt with Sean all the way up until the day of the wedding (he's great!) and Rachel was our day of (we met her a week before the meeting) and she was great! She stayed on top of our wedding schedule the night of, was very accommodating - making sure that my husband and I ate and had drinks in our hands all night! :)

They helped with little details that I wasn't expecting like helping us decide how much alcohol to bring, printing directional signs, etc.

My friends and family were VERY complimentary on the food - they were still talking about it weeks after the wedding. :-)

Stop looking, go to their tasting (amazing!) and book them! They'll take care of you!

Sean & Rachel with Jim Lee Events were amazing to work with. After my meeting with Sean, I left feeling so confident and was sure I was in the right hands. Because I felt so good about our meeting I chose the rest of my vendors from his preffered vendor list. I did my research and got quotes from different djs,photographers,florist ect. But at the end of the day I found these vendors were on his list for a reason. Reasonably priced, very proffesional, courteous, attention to detail just like Jim Lee Events. I think it really helped that they had all worked together before so it made for a smooth night. He showed up at my planning meeting to come up with a back up plan incase it rained and to make sure I was in the loop as far as the set up of tables, chairs, bar ect. It gave me a visual of the wedding night in advance.

Sean always answered my calls and returned my emails right away. Sean helped me with the little things too, how much tequilla to order, how many glasses to order, if I could save money by doing something different with glasses ect... he let me know. I can appreciate that! THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!!! The presentation was great. My guest loved it. My grandfater especially, which really means alot!!! Sean actually came up with the idea to steal me and the groom away to allow us some alone time and a chance to be able to eat together without being interrupted. So sweet! His staff was awesome and Sean was on point all night. I am extremly happy with my decision to use Jim Lee Events for the catering of my wedding! Need great food, Excellent service at a reasonable price that your guest will remember? This is you Caterer :)

Jim Lee was wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to make our special day memorable. Jim, Sean and the whole staff were so easy to work with and get a hold of no matter what time of the day it was. They were very flexible with us in regards to choosing a menu and changing our guest count. They also catered our rehearsal dinner at our home and the two staff members were very professional and friendly to our guests. They set up beautiful flowers at our home and had a great display of the food which our guests were very impressed with.

Our guests raved about the food during the rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour and reception. Sean was such a pleasure to have at the reception. He ensured everything went as planned and was even coordinating with the reception site staff and our DJ in order to minimize any issues from occurring. Sean made sure we had food in our private room so that we could taste the great food and ensure we ate during the reception. Sean also suggested a great signature drink that ALL our guests loved and they kept mentioning it days after the wedding.

Jim Lee without a doubt made our wedding day magnificent and we will definitely be using them for any events we host in the future.

The food was amazing and we got great reviews from our friends and family. Our flowers for the ceremony and reception were provided through Jim and they looked fabulous! I couldn't have been happier with the way things turned out. I didn't have to worry about a thing all night. The staff and bartenders were great and on top of it as well. We wanted to do a pinata in honor of Cinco de Mayo and they did a great job with that as well. I love their flexibility.

Jim Lee Events is a fabulous place to use for your catering. We had fajitas served at our wedding, and I was very worried about them being presented in a "classy" way, and Jim Lee Events could not have done a better job. Sean is wonderful. He will always get back to you the same day you call him, and helps with any questions or problems you might have. I got more compliments on the food at my wedding than anything else. The enchiladas and matrini rice served with different sauces were the biggest hit. They also include flowers for the buffet tables, which will help you save money. They are the best at what they do and I highly recommend using them for your wedding or any event!

Sean at Jim Lee Events is wonderful. He is professional and made sure to check with me first when if our wedding planner informed him of any changes. The food was really good and seemed fresh, even for a buffet.

We used Jim Lee Events because they offered us the best price, almost too good to be true, but it was true. We would not have been able to afford our wedding if they had not worked with us so well. The food they served was really good and everyone gave compliments. Their food is made from scratch and you can tell when you taste it. We loved their Ceasar salad the most, were still craving it today! There was plenty of food so nobody went home hungry, and the decorations and set up were all exactly as we had expected. Jim Lee Events did a great job and they helped make our wedding a great event. Their bartenders did a great job too, everyone was happy about their service.

I cannot say enough great things about Jim Lee Events, and especially Sean. From the multiple tastings, the multiple revisions leading up to our event, and the outstanding service they provided on the day of. AND THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT! Sean went above and beyond what a caterer is expected to do. After our grand exit, he was even the one with a water bucket making sure everyone put their sparklers in it to prevent a fire. He also stayed after to make sure no personal items were left at the venue by any guests. Most vendors would not go this extra mile, but Sean did!

I absolutely loved working with Jim Lee. It started by me inquiring about their facilities at the Starlight Room and ended with me wanting a different venue but using them for sure for the catering. The whole process was smooth with no glitches. There was plenty of food that was delicious and alcohol for everyone. They worked with me cost wise as well as giving me what I wanted quality wise for my guests. I would recommend working with them for not only weddings but any event!

On-time, hot food, cold drinks, amazing waitstaff and coordinator, Rachel. Our only complaint were the sushi rolls that were served. We eat a lot Sushi, so we're super picky, but the rest of the food was fantastic and filling. Jim Lee is super flexible and willing to work with you, within reason, on price. He and his staff are a pleasure to work with.

Sean & Jim of Jim Lee Events and The Starlight Room are amazing!!! After looking at different venues for our reception we found that the Starlight Room was a unique space & that the food and service was in a league of its own. Sean & Jim covered all bases from the food to the tables, linens, silverware, votive candles, buffet tables, colored lighting, tv's for a dvd slideshow, and a stocked bar that they promise will never run out :) etc etc. Sean Carey was our main point of contact & he made sure everything was perfect from our first taste testing & throughout our wedding day. Not only did they offer us some nice discounts for booking in advance, they also were very responsive to all calls and emails with questions or changes that we wanted to make. We got so many compliments from our guests at how neat the space was and how amazing the food tasted. Everyone had a great time & we want to thank Sean, Jim & all the staff that helped make our wedding so special & memorable.

I had my wedding (both ceremony and reception) at Jim Lee's Starlight Room through Jim Lee Events. In addition to the venue they also provided all the catering and alcohol. The food was amazing!!! Its been a month since my wedding and my guests are still raving about the food and service.

Every request I had was listened to and met. The staff was extremely accommodating and very helpful. Every detail was wonderful from lighting, to tables, to setting up a private dinner for my new husband and I.

I would highly recommend using Jim Lee Events for your special occasions. They were fabulous and made every aspect of my wedding easier.

The venue is amazing, 2 stories, huge brick patio, and plenty of seating. Already had a dance floor, DJ booth and some cool up lighting.

Sean and Jim (the owners) were amazing, helping us decide which food to serve, what drinks to offer and making the event run smoothly.

The food was the highlight of the event – huge shrimp, awesome crab cakes, killer Kobe Beef sliders, an amazing fruit/cheese display and much much more! Everyone raved about the food and are still talking about it, 3 weeks later.

They provide such an upscale venue, catering and service and the price was so reasonable! If you haven’t selected a venue, please see this one as you may never look back! We found it and decided the very same day to book it – it was very cosmo, urban and clubby feeling!
