    Wedding on 9/14/19

    Ivys was amazing. We had a small outdoor reception at my son's home around the pool. Karen and her staff were amazing from the time we sat down with her to plan. We interviewed 3 other caterers and they were hands down the best. We had so many comments about the food. The french onion bites were to die for! Actually everything we had was awesome. they went above and beyond. We had borrowed a popcorn maker and they even got it started with the first batch so when guests arrived ahead of us there was fresh popped corn. I also called Karen or emailed her with sooooo many questions and she was always prompt and helpful. I am so glad we went with them and you will not be disappointed.

    Kathy, we were thrilled you and Mike selected Ivy's for your intimate outdoor reception! The popcorn was a fun touch and I agree, our french onion soup bites are a favorite. Hope you stop by our storefront and keep in touch. Congratulations! Karen

    Fantastic food and customer service

    Ivy's did a fantastic job with our wedding. We worked closely with Karen throughout the entire planning process and she was always incredibly responsive. I really appreciated how much she listened to what was important to us, and then worked with us to create a custom menu and bar selection. Ivy's was also incredibly attentive to detail and special requests, including making a different salad for the groom and providing special desserts for our guests with food allergies. And of course, the quality of the food was excellent. So, so many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how much they enjoyed the food. If you're looking for high quality food, great service, excellent value, and a customized experience, Ivy's is your place.

    Thank you so much Sally Ann for your review! It was fun to incorporate your love for craft beer into the menu! Wishing you and Jesse much happiness as you settle into life in DC and of course as a married couple! Cheers, Karen

    Absolutely Perfect!

    I can't say enough about our wonderdul experience with Ivy's Simply Homemade. From start to finish their attention to detail, coordination and professionalism was outstanding. Ivy and her staff worked with us on our catering needs, but also as a coordinator with our venue and other wedding vendors. The food was outstanding from the appetizers, to entrees and desserts. Attention to every detail prior to the wedding and flexibility with changes was on point. The day of the wedding everything fell into place perfectly, with Sophia and her team working effortless behind the scenes to ensure perfection. Fantastic food, and a friendly and professional staff that will surely make your event one to remember!
