This was our second time to Iva Lee’s. Good Southern comfort food with good cocktails, beer and wine. Butternut raviolis were the best entree choice
I live in San Diego, but when I am in the area or someone is the area it is my first choice. Food and Service has always been excellent.
This is a great local restaurant with music Wed, Thur, Fri and Saturday. It has a small dance floor and is lots of fun with lively people. The food is very good and the prices are very reasonable.
We had a great time on New Year's Eve at Iva Lee's with our party of 12! The ambiance in the dining room and the excellent food and beverages was a pleasure for all. We love to dance so it was fun to have the DJ but I must say I would rather have a live band especially at Iva Lees as they always have such great music. It was fun to have a DJ who brought in the New year hour with a count down but I think a strong band leader could do the same.
Food was good, but really slow in coming....salad took almost 30 minutes. We finally asked the waitress whether lettuce was being grown out back? Nice table...maitre'd worked hard to get us a nice table...Fried chicken was only a breast? Some of us like dark meat!
Service could have been a bit faster....my husband ordered another wine, she totally forgot it...but she was friendly enough? We'll try it again, all about supporting local spots!
Took visiting family there for food and live music. It’s such a fun place. Order the pork chop! We all decided that was the best.
Cold gumbo, way to much dressing on salads. Tasted terrible and waitress didn’t even ask us why we didn’t eat it. Place was half empty on a Friday night. Clearly a Restaurant in decline. Would not be surprised if it closes soon.
We enjoyed our date very much. We were really pleased that the busboy brought out bread right away. The bread and honey butter was delicious. We ordered the hushpuppies and enjoyed them dipped in the sauce that accompanied them. Then we ordered the meat loaf and thought it was darn good.
After dinner we danced and a good time was had by all.
Blackened Salmon, Jambalaya, Gumbo, and a very interesting Tomato Bisque soup. Outstanding on all fronts.
Great Restaurant, the staff is incredibly friendly, the owner Eric is extremely personable and cares about your experience and food. Very attentive staff, from the top notch bartenders, extremely attentive wait staff, to the buss personnel. I really can’t say enough about this restaurant.
