  • We are so thrilled that Island View Catering was such an integral part of our big day. They treated us like family and provided the most delicious food! Our guests have not stopped raving about how incredible the appetizer and dinner selections were. From the intial discussions about the menu, to the fabulous tasting dinner, to the magical day-of, IVC went above and beyond to bring our vision to life. All of the catering staff were such a pleasure to work with, and kept the day running smoothly. Geoff and the rest of the kitchen were so accommodating with guest allergies and preferences, and made sure no one left hungry. Avrey and the rest of the catering team were so gracious, working with us every step of the way to coordinate rentals, table settings, plating options, menu selections, and more. We couldn’t imagine having anyone else provide the food for our wedding, and would recommend them highly to anyone in the Santa Barbara area!

  • My wife and I really like food. So much so that selecting a caterer was probably the most important decision we made for our wedding. We were familiar with the stereotype that wedding food is always bad so we were determined to buck the trend. Finding a reasonably priced caterer who could provide seasonal, locally sourced food to a remote wedding venue in Los Olivos was a challenge. Our planner recommended IVC to us and it just so happened that Avrey and his wife were married at the same venue years earlier and had catered a wedding there previously. Their familiarity with the venue was certainly an advantage but it was their food that sold us. Throughout the entire process, everyone at IVC was cordial, responsive, accommodating, and professional. I mentioned earlier that we are pretty discerning when it comes to food so of course in the months between the tasting and our wedding day we were in constant communication with Avrey finalizing the menu. His responses were always timely a... Read more

  • My husband and I chose Island View Catering for our September wedding and could not have been happier with our decision. From the beginning, working with Geoff and Avery couldn’t have been easier or more pleasant. They asked what we wanted, listened to us, and delivered. We had a wedding party of about 100 people and wanted a family style service with passed appetizers before dinner and hosted bar with wine and beer. After discussing a menu we were invited to their beautiful Santa Ynez dining room for our tasting dinner. Each of the appetizers we tried where delicious and we had a difficult time narrowing them down and each of the three entrees presented were amazing and just what we had in mind. Geoff and Avery were very attentive to our feedback wanting to make sure we were totally happy with what we were tasting, which we were. The only question was could they deliver such good and yummy food in an outdoor venue for 100 people. Not only did IVC deliver but they excee... Read more

  • I do not have the words to express how UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME these guys are. Seriously. They were incredible from DAY 1. From tasting to the event (and they catered rehearsal dinner, too!) they were just amazing. Prices were great, but more importantly THEY were great and the food was outstanding! Endless compliments on the food from our guests - BOTH nights! And they also took amazing care of us - making sure we were fed and happy. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. PLEASE USE THEM! You will be so happy you did!!

  • Avrey, Geoff and all the staff of Island View Catering made our wedding pretty darn perfect. From the beginning, they were friendly and easy to work with, and once they sent the proposed menu they put together, we knew we were hooked. I am somewhat of a foodie, and knew that the food had to be amazing at my wedding (no banquet slab of meat and reheated potatoes for this girl). The food that Island View Catering makes is fantastic, which we knew since we had attended a tasting dinner at their place several months before. Our guests could not stop raving about it! Many said it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. Not only are the appetizers and freshly grilled meats delicious, but all of the sides are well thought out and fabulous (to quote my father the morning after the wedding: "I've never heard so many people raving about a mashed potato before!"). Everything was delicious, fresh and gourmet, and it was a meal that I was proud to serve to our guests. Beyond the food, t... Read more

  • There are not enough great things I can say about IV Catering. Avrey and Geoff are amazing, their food is to die for, and they were the most professional vendor I worked with during my entire wedding process. My wedding planner, venue manager, and photographer also commented on how professional they and their team were. Avrey and Geoff, the owners and chefs, are younger which made them easy to relate to and made the entire process really fun. My fiance and I went to their home for our tasting and had a full dinner with wine pairings and a great social evening. Our favorite food was the brie cheese appetizer that had a chipotle boysenberry sauce dripping over it - so delicious!! My co-worker has since used their catering services, my work is going to be using them for our Christmas party, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone for any type of event - they are truly amazing!
