    Book Jay's for your Wedding!

    We hired Jay's for our wedding at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and they were absolutely amazing. The tricky part of our venue is that there was no kitchen! You would have never known that they had to build their own temporary kitchen on the lawn outside!

    You really can't go wrong with any of their food options (short ribs & lime chicken were amazing) - everything was way higher quality than your typical wedding food! Everyone was extremely professional, great communicators, and really want to go the extra mile to to please! It was so much easier to have your apps/dinner, bar, and dessert all order from one place. We ordered our wedding cake from them too and it was so good.

    I wanted to have an authentic 1944 Mai Tai as my signature drink - I gave them the recipe and a provided a few extra ingredients and they made it happen!

    Their pricing was fair and very transparent, their servers/bartenders were awesome, and everything ran like clockwork for our wedding. Highly recommend!
