  • There are no words for how amazing Elizabeth and Chef’s Garden were as our caterer for our 11/13/2020 wedding. We are a Covid wedding couple- originally booked for a huge May wedding that became a small November wedding. We got in touch with Elizabeth only 3 months out from the new date and she was so responsive and worked so hard to give us everything we wanted without ever making us feel like we were on a time crunch. For our tasting, we finally felt like a spoiled Bride and Groom- they laid out an amazing spread, with custom menus with our names, a welcome sign, and a delicious meal. On the wedding day- they went above and beyond any expectations we could have had- everyone was impressed with the taste, the incredible service, and how beautiful our displays were. We feel so grateful and lucky that we found Elizabeth and Chef’s Garden. We will never cater with another company again- we are clients for life!!

  • WOW! Incredible! When choosing our caterer for our wedding so much time and effort went into this area our heads could have been spinning, but we found Chef's Garden and everything was PERFECT! Liz is an absolute doll and so accommodating. She genuinely cares and will make sure your day is special! We got married at the Lightner Museum and everyone was ranting and raving about how delicious our food and service was! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! Hire Chef's Garden for your event, you will be soooo happy you did! We miss working with Liz so much already!

  • We had an amazing experience with Chef's Garden. We planned our Jacksonville wedding from New York, which could have been difficult, but with Chef's Garden, everything was a breeze. They have so many delicious food options and are willing to personalize your wedding dinner menu to make it that of your dreams. Elizabeth was always quick to answer my emails, and was flexible with menu changes and accommodations. They allowed my in-laws to do a tasting of our full dinner menu selection since we couldn't be there to do so. On the day of our wedding, all of the staff were beyond professional and friendly, and assisted with everything we needed. We hired the bartending service as well, and it was phenomenal! I cannot say enough good things about this catering company. Everyone raved about the food! And the to-go bag we took to our hotel the night of the wedding (with a special treat inside) was icing on the cake!

Best Regards, Elizabeth & the Chef's Garden Crew

  • Let me start by saying that food was the most important part of our wedding (besides getting married of course!), so we had very high expectations for the food served at our wedding. The Chef's Garden exceeded our expectations by far. They worked with us to create the absolute perfect menu for both cocktail hour and dinner. Everything from the presentation, taste, and service was impeccable. The team at the Chef's Garden (especially Jennifer) made the process so fun and easy through great communication and consultation every step of the way. The day of the wedding was the icing on the cake. From providing us with our own server/appetizers during our photoshoot to packing up left overs for us to enjoy the next day, this catering service went above and beyond to meet our needs and exceed our expectations. We highly recommend the Chef's Garden for your catering needs and are forever grateful to them for all of the work they put in to make our wedding extra special.

  • Our wedding was held at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. One requirement of having our wedding at the Cummer was that we use their caterer (Chef's Garden). We met with Jennifer Earnest, who was very pleasant and professional to work with. Everything went so smoothly on the day of our wedding. The food was absolutely amazing. Many guests raved about the food, even the most critical friends and family members. We provided our own alcohol/liquor, but Chef's Garden supplied the bar tender and all the mixers at a small fee. My husband and I absolutely loved having Chef's Garden cater our wedding and would highly recommend them to everyone!

  • Chef's Garden knocked it out of the park. The chicken, short rib, and veggie dishes were all amazing. I had multiple people tell me how great their food was over the course of the night, and for good reason. The bartending service was amazing as well. Could not recommend them more!

  • What struck me most impressionable about Chef Garden's team was how amazing the service was. The staff really strove to make sure my husband and I not only got to experience the food, but that we were comfortable and had everything we needed at all times. Amazing food, amazing staff. They even helped us move the entire ceremony outside after it stopped raining. Great, great catering company.

  • We were very impressed by Chef’s Garden ability to create a completely custom menu for our wedding. They went above and beyond for us. Elizabeth was our point of contact and she was kind, helpful, and accommodating. Not only did she diligently work with our planner to stick to our budget, but she was very responsive to our questions and concerns. The proposals she provided were extremely detailed and updated after each tasting. And all the CG staff on the day of was very professional. Some of our more unique requests included seafood soup, lamb tagine, and vegetable curry. CG embraced all our ideas whole-heartedly! At the tasting, the food was presented beautifully, and we were most excited about our entrée choices. We realized we wanted to change direction with the appetizers and dessert. Thankfully, Chef’s Garden was willing to do a second tasting, which was a huge relief, and we selected options from their catering menu that we were really happy with. The duck confit ... Read more

  • I was actually thankful we had a couple of no-shows for the wedding reception because it meant LEFTOVERS the next day from Chef's Garden! I could not have possibly hoped to find such delicious wedding food - Rave reviews from our guests all night and wonderful staff to work with. THANK YOU!!

  • I got married at the Cummer Museum in October and had the pleasure of working with Jennifer and the Chef's Garden team. The food was better than I ever could of imagined! We picked plated meals and gave our guests the option of chicken, beef, or fish. You couldn't go wrong with ay of them, they were all amazing! I had so many compliments about the food served, so I'm thrilled. The staff on the day of the wedding was also so sweet. Thank you so much Jennifer!

  • When planning our wedding, we were not quite sure what we had wanted our menu to be. However, with Chef's Garden and their incredible options, we were able to find exactly the kind of food that suited our tastes and style. Our guests could not hold back their excitement and appreciation for the food. Everything tasted amazingly! The Team at Chef's Garden was extremely helpful along the way and ensured our Wedding was as seamless as could be.

  • The Chef's Garden catered our wedding on March 4th, 2018, and even 6 weeks later, we are STILL receiving compliments with how great the food and service was. Elizabeth, the catering and events director, was wonderful to work with and was always there to answer any question I had. She made the whole process very easy and stress-free for this bride. They were very attentive to my now husband and I during the cocktail hour, making sure we got to sample the hors d’oeuvres, and then again during the reception dinner. Although, I couldn't eat much because I was so excited that I am now a wife! :) I would definitely recommend The Chef's Garden to any other couple there (and have already done so numerous times already!) and will keep them in mind for any future events we may have. Thank you, Chef's Garden, for a wonderful wedding experience.

  • We absolutely loved working with Elizabeth and Chef's Garden. I was a ease knowing my event was in capable hands with her team so I could relax and enjoy the day. Everything was wonderful and we received lots of compliments from our guests on the quality of the food- especially the shrimp and grits. If you are planning a wedding in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area I'd highly recommend you give them a call!
