The Chef’s Garden is an off-premise catering company. With more than 20 years’ experience in the food service and hospitality industry, our staff experience is as diverse as the clients we serve, which means that we have the knowledge to make any vision a reality.

We know that we are only as good as our last event; therefore, to keep current with trends—and set a few of our own—our staff regularly engages in industry training relevant to their positions. And, we pride ourselves on maintaining a constant core staff, so that we never waiver in your expectation of us.

Experience has taught us two things. First, there is no set formula for creating a memorable event; second, our clients are our most important asset.

Our goal is not to create our ideal party, but yours. We will look to you for inspiration! Our purpose is to take your abstract vision and bring into it tangible details that can be enjoyed in a truly magnificent way. We work hard to create a comfortable and long lasting relationship with every client, to bring his/her unique vision to life.

Please contact us at (904) 399-4449 or E-mail us at events@cateringjacksonville.com. Thank you so much for your interest, and we look forward to speaking with you. Read less

Chef's Garden is absolutely the best! Jennifer really knows what she is doing and is so easy to work with! I can sometimes be indecisive so she suggested a lot of options that we ended up using. She worked with our budget, and the food was amazing!!! We received so many compliments at our wedding, from the specialty cocktails to the details of the food. My husband and I tried other caterers but their food was not the quality as Chef's Garden. Their food is so delicious and so beautifully presented. From the time we did the tasting we knew Chef's Garden was for us! Jennifer was so patient when we did change our appetizers a couple of times. She even provided linens and specialty signs. I wanted something different for the napkins, so her and her team created bow tie napkins which were a hit! If you are looking for a caterer please look no further! Chef's Garden is the way to go!

The food and service from Chef's Garden were absolutely the best! Jennifer and Liz, the owners, went out of their way to make sure our day was special (and it was!). Everyone was raving about how awesome the food was and the service was just as good. On top of that, they helped with our reception (made it look more cohesive, moved some plants, brought some greenery, etc) and even broke down everything and helped to clean up. Their bartender got a lot of compliments as well. Very positive experience. We were all very happy.

Four days after our wedding and the guests are still talking about the amazing food. It was so good that I have already given out several referrals. Someone even said "OMG....I am sure you paid a FORTUNE. That was the best meal I've ever had at a wedding." I agree. So good! Jen was amazing and the price was so good considering what we had. We will use Chef's Garden for any big events we have in the future. TRUST ME...your guests will talk about the food for MONTHS! Thank you Jen...you and your staff were AWESOME!

The Chef's Garden hands down has the tastiest food! I am a huge food person and appreciate good food. The Chef's Garden provided delicious food with amazing presentations. Jennifer did an amazing job staying around my budget too! I was extremely impressed with the food that was presented on my wedding night! I had so many compliments on how good the food was! Jennifer did a wonderful job with incorporating my vision for the layout as well. She also took care of ordering the linens and runners for all of the tables and food stations after my input. On a side note, I would ask where the remaining food goes at the end of the night and I have read other reviews about being served small bites of food upon arrival, this was not our case, it didn't bother me and I didn't expect it. I would have liked a glass of champagne though, that would have been a nice touch upon our arrival :) I would recommend The Chef's Gardens to anyone!

If you want great food and service at your wedding or event, stop what you're doing and call the Chef's Garden right now! No really, it's been 6 months since our wedding, and guests are still raving about the food at our wedding! Jennifer was a joy to work with and had great suggestions for foods that paired well together. We had a cocktail hour with passed hor d'oeuvres as well as a sit-down dinner. The shrimp and grits on a fried green tomato was my favorite appetizer! The food and service was perfect. We also hired bartenders through them, who were great. The Chef's Garden went above and beyond my expectations during the entire planning process and, more importantly, on our wedding day. We recommend them every chance we get and we will definitely use them again!

Absolutely perfect! The Chef's Garden was SO delicious and provided amazing food for our wedding! Our guests raved about the amazing menu all night, and still are weeks later! Liz (owner) was easy to work with, and accommodating to my schedule to ensure the event would be perfect and flow smoothly. We had many meetings to make sure things were exactly how myself and my husband envisioned everything, and the tasting was perfect to ensure we got what we expected! They have so many options to choose from, and each item was perfectly made! Jennifer Corrente is also a part of The Chef's Garden (runs the cafe at The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens), and served as my wedding coordinator throughout the process. She is absolutely amazing, gracious, organized and full of ideas. I could not have imagined having everything running so smoothly, and I know this only happened because of her. I highly recommend anyone for The Chef's Garden superb services!
