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

We worked with Elizabeth who was outstanding. We had nothing but praises on the food served at our wedding. The quality of food was exceptional and presentation was spectacular. I have never had food this good at a wedding before. Our wedding became a culinary experience and Elizabeth was wonderful! The team was very accommodating with menu changes we had and were extremely flexible with different needs we had for our wedding. Thank you so much!

We used Chef's Garden as our wedding caterer and they were absolutely wonderful. It was a seamless process from start to finish and our wedding guests raved about the food. Honestly, I don't think they could have done any better as the food quality was brilliant and the display was just beautiful! I highly recommend them for any catering needs.

Jennifer worked with me to make a special cornbread, and didn't stop until they had gotten it down perfect. The food was wonderful and I was so thrilled to see that we left with some midnight snacks that they had packed up for us in the limo! We are still getting compliments on the food and service. Chef's garden went above and beyond in helping us have an amazing night. They surpassed our expectations. If you want food that is personal, detailed and memorable look no further. Jennifer and her staff understand how important the sentimental details are and I truly felt like she shared my vision. The execution was flawless and I could not be happier. These are the people you have been looking for, book early they are in high demand!

Jennifer Earnest at The Chef's Garden is absolutely amazing!! I cannot stress how pleasant the experience was to work with her. She kept our budget in mind, catered to our changes (a lot of them last minute), and even went the extra mile to send us home with some extra goodies at the end!!! Jennifer made the catering portion of my wedding planning so easy and so fun. The food was INCREDIBLE. I still have friends and family tell me how delicious and beautifully set up everything was that day! Jennifer even helped decorate on the day of my wedding with my day of coordinator. (She didn't know I knew that, but I can't speak enough of her kindness.) She is a dream to work with and I promise you she will not disappoint!

Honestly, there aren't words to say how amazing Elizabeth and her team at Chef's Garden are. We had a negative experience with another catering company that was very sketchy about contracts and deposits and I was feeling discouraged. But Elizabeth put my mind at ease as soon as we started working together. She created an amazing menu that fit our wedding perfectly and was within our budget. The number one thing I can say about her and her staff - professional. They made everything go so smoothly, the set up was gorgeous, and our guests were blown away by the food! Everyone says, as the bride and groom, to make sure you eat and stay hydrated and the catering staff captain, Bart, took care of us all night. He came out while we were taking photos to make sure the bridal party got to try all of the delicious appetizers (the bacon-wrapped scallops are life-affirming), and took care of us throughout the night. I never worried about anything with Chef's Garden, which is exactly what you want from a wedding vendor. I would recommend them to any bride.

Chef’s Garden was a delicious asset to our wedding! Elizabeth Van Nuy did an exceptional job keeping in touch with us and discussing all of our desires for the dinner. We found Chef’s Garden one year in advance before our wedding and we are so happy with our decision. We arranged for a food tasting with Elizabeth and their chef which we enjoyed tremendously. Not only was the food good, but the conversation was great as well. We were able to pick out the menu with ease as well as the linens for the tables (we even had a pink sparkle tablecloth for our sweetheart table which I was in love with)! On the day of the wedding, we received only good reviews from our guests about the food, the servers and bartenders were wonderful and kept everyone spirited. While food was the most expensive item on our wedding budget, I absolutely believe that was money well spent. Thank you so much Elizabeth and Chef’s Garden for a tasty night!

We used Chef's garden because they manage the cafe at the Cummer, which was our venue, but I'm so thankful we did! Jennifer was excellent at getting everything pulled together. She provided the table linens and made our food station tables look lovely. Our good was spectacular. All of the guests raved about it. Her staff was top notch. They were so on top of things. They even assigned us a waitress to make sure we had food & drinks, because the bride & groom are extremely busy. I had the best day thanks to all of the wonderful staff!

Choosing Chef's Garden to cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have made. Jennifer was with us to help make any decisions we needed help on no matter how small or big. She was always there rather it was texting or emailing to make sure the process was smooth. Not to mention the food was AMAZING! We still have people raving about the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and dinner entrees. It was delicious and such an easy process. I recommend them to all of my friends getting married!
