I cannot say enough good things about Cindy and the team at UCI's University Club. The venue was gorgeous and perfect for our August wedding, her response time to emails and calls was fantastic, her communication in general was wonderful. My father, who does not hand out compliments superfluously, called her a genius and I agree completely. Day of she was right there coordinating everything, keeping it all out from underfoot, handled my two little flower girls like a champ, and the week off when I was stressed sent me funny cat photos to check in with me! We got lots of compliments on the food and bar, the clean up crew was efficient, Cindy even helped personally load gifts into my parents' car.Sent on 08/15/2016

My (now) husband and I originally booked the University Club because we were UCI alumni and the location had a special place in our heart. Looking back on our big day and the whole process of wedding planning, we got way more than we ever paid for.Sent on 09/30/2016
The wedding coordinator, Cindy, is the BEST coordinator EVER. She is extremely organized, responsive, detail oriented, and thorough. And she is fast paced, which I like. She is quick to think on the spot and problem solve through any situation. She accommodated my last minute changes in the guest list, so that we weren't charged for the food plates of extra guests. When we found out the L.A. Rams were holding their first practice at UCI on the day of our wedding, Cindy got a parking attendant at our site hours before our reception began to make sure nobody except our guests were using the University Club parking! Cindy and her assistant Carissa also went above and beyond to make sure every question I had was answered with specificity and detail. Emails were answered quickly, sometimes on the same day! When I was unsure about tax and the service charge, Cindy took the time to explain to me and my dad who was looking over my wedding contract. Cindy made sure that there were no surprises on our bill.
On the note of going above and beyond, Cindy helped us get the exact color of up-lights we wanted and even helped creatively lay out all of our cookies for our ice cream sandwich bar. She has an eye for what looks good! Finally, my father in law left his wedding ring in the bathroom on accident, and Cindy was sure to communicate to my Maid of Honor and my husband that it was locked in a safe at the University Club waiting to be picked up at our convenience.
Thank you to the University Club for making our day unforgettable. To our sweetheart table's server, to the bartender that made sure my friend's were having a blast, to our coordinators, it was such a pleasure to work with you!

Cindy and Clarissa at the UCI club were great! The location is a great value and the staff are very reliable. The food is really good (lots of choices) and they are very flexible about how they do things like open bar. They have an awesome vendor list which we used extensively. The vendors they work with the most are also reliable, are a great value and do a great job. Cindy and Clarissa are very organized and easy to get in contact with. They let us make several adjustments to the food and reception details over the few weeks before the wedding. We were able to bring all of our decorations the day before the wedding and they arranged everything. They directed everyone on what to do during the rehearsal and kept track of timing for our wedding day, making adjustments as necessary. We don't what we would have done without them. They made everything very easy. We would definitely recommend others use this venue!Sent on 03/31/2017
The venue holds maximum of 200 people for an indoor reception and ~300 people for an outdoor reception. They recently changed the look of their banquet hall so their ceilings look amazing now. They also added some new string lights to their outdoor area. We saw some pictures of what other couples were able to do with the venue. Here is an outdoor reception and indoor reception that inspired us to pick this venue.
I've worked with the University Club for years & have always found the staff to be professional. Cindy is wonderful & treats each wedding like they were family. Her events run seamlessly & guests are always very impressed with hold well organized the entire event unfolds.
Great food, services.
