Iva Lee's

Welcome to Iva Lee's Southern and Creole Cuisine. Iva Lee was born and raised in the South and came from a long line of Southern women who passed down recipes since their arrival in America in I640. Iva Lee was my beloved grandmother. She took pride in preparing a wide variety of Southern meals and classic dishes from New Orleans for family and welcomed friends.

"I liked the fact we could reserve a table in advance. This takes the stress out of going out to eat. We were however sadly disappointed with the promptness of service, the noise level, and the fact that we waited over an hour from the time we put in our order to the time it arrived on our table...undercooked and a little cold. This was our first time here and we had brought a friend from out of town. Needless to say we were a little embarrassed. The manager did comp a good portion of our order, but even so I'm not sure we will come back. So sad, as we had heard great things about this place."

"We came here, and I didnt know what to expect. It was nice and the food was great, I didn't even know it was a southern style type of eatery. They give you cornbread as the opening bread option! The servers were really nice and attentive! Would def go back. :)"

"I have been to Iva Lees many times and it has never disappointment. In fact my lady friend had them cater her daughters wedding reception. Can not say enough about the wait staff and the personal attention by the owner. He gets out and greets the patrons. Takes the time to stop at your table and say hello and make you feel welcome. It is a great place to go. In fact they had the best New Year's Eve dinner and party that I have been to in many years. Give them 10 thumbs up.
Thank you for making everyone feel welcome.

"Went to Iva Lee's for dinner on a Friday night with reservations at 6:45. Everything we ordered was delicious: Cajun Seared Ahi, Rockin' Shrimp Tacos, Braised Short Rib (the best!), the Plantation Punch, and the coffee creme brulee (I don't even like coffee, but I was fighting for the last bite). Shout out to our server JC the Viking - super friendly and gave great recommendations. Music started around 7:30 and people were dancing which was cool because you really don't see that at restaurants in south OC. Cool, relaxed vibe - I would definitely go back to Iva Lee's and have highly recommended it to friends & family. Try it out!"

"On a friend's recommendation, I took a group of 6 to Iva Lee's on a busy Saturday night. We all tried the Burning Thyme cocktail which was interesting and basically a G&T with a twist... not my favorite, but everyone else enjoyed it. The entrees were all spectacular, from the melt in your mouth short ribs to the recommended and tastiest shrimps & grits, everything was divine.
The ambiance was fun and reminiscent of a European bar without trying too hard (for San Clemente.)
Despite having 6pm dinner reservations, we moved to the bar area and DANCED the night away, which we NEVER do. So yes, we will definitely be going back..
Only negative was the server was abrupt and less than friendly, especially for such a fun place. Being an easy to please group that tips well, that was unfortunate, though will not stop us from returning. Maybe it was just a bad day."

"We got a table in the lounge so we would have a place to sit when the live music started. It was perfect. It's too loud to talk over the music but it's a great place to sit and enjoy the live music. I'd suggest arriving an hour/hour & a half before the music is set to begin. Have dinner and then enjoy!"

"I have been to Iva Lee's many times. I always sit in the lounge now so I can have dinner and then watch the live music. The food is pretty good and the service is always very good. The ambience in the lounge is something I really like. It is not too big, but has enough room for a small band/group. The groups are pretty diverse, from blues to zydeco. Fun place to dance and people watch."

"Lovely restaurant and friendly staff. Our server and his helper were extremely attentive, but that just couldn't make up up for the mediocre (at best) meal. The 3 of us that were dining are seasoned diners, and agreed that it's been a really long time since we left an OC restaurant with the feeling that the food was sub-standard. When the "signature" dish is bland you know you are in trouble. There were other issues with the flavors and consistencies of the dishes we tried. The restaurant has live music and an energetic bar area that was busy for a week night.
The reality is that every restaurant has an off night occasionally, but my sense is that there is no quality control in the kitchen. They should decide whether they want to be know as a Bar with live music that serves food, or a Great Restaurant that has a bar with live music…..just saying…."

"Loved this little restaurant and bar. Great ambiance and music. The food was delicious and had a hard time deciding what to order there were so many appetizing items on the menu. I would definitely recommend this place."

"I had dinner at Iva Lee's this last week. I order the sea bass which was undercooked and the asparagus was less than fresh. The bread pudding dessert was delicious!
Overall, the restaurant was just ok. The dinner was sub-par and the service was nonexistent. She literally would talk to us as she walked by. Based on everything, I would not recommend.

"The evening began with fantastic starters, French Onion Soup, and Cornbread Hushpuppies with Redpepper Jam. Fantastic dinner menu with live music sets the scene for a great evening, the service was good and the waitresses were attentive, we had a great time at the southern cajun restaurant."

"Jambalaya was not very tasty. Very small pieces of shrimp and scallops buried in rice. Very dry. The server dropped my beer off at the table without stopping to ask if I would like a glass, which I did and had to wait for. My husbands gumbo was just ok, but he did like his fried chicken."

"We had a wonderful time at Iva Lee's. On Friday night the place was happening, yet we were still able to be served dinner in a reasonable time period. The band, The Four Corners, was a great addition to the evening. Would definitely come back again."
