When guests came to us (unsolicited) with nothing but superlatives to describe their culinary experience at our daughter's wedding, we knew we had hired the right catering company: Garden of the Gods Catering & Events! Jessica Johnson, G OG catering/event planner began meeting with us ten months before the wedding and listened to our every need including preferred serving style, presentation and culinary preferences. She showed grace, flexibility and professionalism every step of the way. Chef David Platzer with the help of his assistant Adam Porter, created menu choices that pleased us all; most notably the bride and groom! Every station was superbly presented and, of course beyond DELICIOUS! Pastry Chef Sue Sanicky baked an elegant wedding cake. It was light, not too sweet, and the perfect end to a most notable meal. Our servers, Amy, Cori, Diana, Kate, Meghan, Nicole, Hannah, Sharon and Jerrod moved throughout the event seamlessly and met our every need. What more could one ask? We highly and unequivocally recommend Garden of the Gods Catering & Events to anyone who wants to create a unique event with the help of professionals who care.
We first met Jessica while we were shopping around for caterers. The food at our tasting was absolutely delicious, but what struck me most was how comprehensive the level of service was and how Jessica was able to put so many of our anxieties at ease. When the day actually came everything turned out even better than we expected. The food was just as good as the tasting and Jessica and the Garden of the Gods Gourmet team made sure that the whole evening went smoothly. We were incredibly happy.
I can’t say enough to really express how amazing this caterer was. The food was outstanding!!! Jessica and staff made our wedding day special. I highly, highly recommend making them part of any special day!!!!
Amazing! We had a small wedding of about 20 people and ended up doing the steakhouse buffet. The food was absolutely delicious! Everyone loved everything! It was the perfect amount and there was still some leftover. We also had the cake made through them and that also turned out amazing! Everything was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for better service.
These guys absolutely ROCK. Their food is unreal and they provide the highest quality service! Working with them through the planning process was a very positive experience. Jessica Johnson was professional, down to earth, organized, and TALENTED. I felt like she took a lot of worries off my plate which was huge for me as the bride. We did a stationed dinner with a seafood table, mashed potato bar, salad bar, butchers block, and kids table. Everything was a hit, especially the seafood table! We are still getting compliments from guests on how amazing our food was. Many people went back for seconds and thirds.. I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding day so special.
Garden of the Gods Catering food and service was awesome!!! Maddie our coordinator did a great job, she came for a pre -event visit which ensured we were all on the same page and made the wedding day go smoothly. The servers Liz and Sarah were on time , set up the food beautifully and helped throughout the night. Lots of compliments on the food too!! Thanks Garden of the Gods Catering!!!
These guys were fantastic to work with! We worked with Jessica, who started us off with a great tasting experience, and was super quick with communication and helping us figure out details. These guys were the best value we found in town! They provided tons of help in addition to the catering, and easily better food :) which we were surprised to learn! We had to change venues 2 days before the wedding because of weather, and they quickly rolled with the punches and made the day seamless. They're awesome! Can't say enough good things.
I am thrilled to review Garden of the Gods Catering. My husband and I were blown away by Maddie, who coordinated every detail with such warmth and professionalism. From the beginning, she gave our intimate wedding attention to detail and enthusiasm that made all the difference. The food prepared by chef Dave was fabulous. Our tasting was an incredible dining experience and the actual event was a fine dining, plated meal, that everyone raved about. I could go on and on about the flowers by Liese. Our long farm table, arrangements, and cake were luxurious with a soft, vintage like feel. She is truly an artist and such a value for the level of quality received. I could go on and on about this company. I would recommend anyone to immediately book their wedding or event with them. Beginning to end it was excellence.
Recently used Garden of the Gods catering for our daughter's wedding. As an "out-of-state" mother-of-the-bride, I felt somewhat disconnected from the planning process. However, the assistance that Jessica provided through multiple phone and email contacts enabled me to feel very much a part of the important details of our daughter's wedding and reception. The entire Garden of the God's staff was prompt and very efficient during all the details of set-up and take-down on the wedding day. The food was delicious too!! Thank you for helping make our daughter's wedding day so wonderful!!
Jessica Johnson and the entire crew at GoG were simply top notch! Every step of the way her prompt communication and great customer service made all the difference. Having eaten at the resturaunt many times before, we knew the food would be fantastic, and it was. Thanks again for helping make our special day so wonderful!
Garden of the gods were absolutely the best choice in catering! Trust when I say they are very friendly and professional. I love them! Food was amazing! Flowers were gorgeous! Music was great!
Chef Sue Sanicky did an amazing job on our wedding cake, it came out absolutely beautiful! She offers a wide variety of delicious cake flavors and fillings to choose from. She captured our vision perfectly and all our guests had nothing but great comments on the look and taste of the cake! We highly recommend her as your cake baker!
Fantastic. GOG performed perfectly. A truly memorable experience for our 50th. Every detail professionally handled. We could not have been happier with the food and with the service at our function. Thank you again.
Beyond amazing service and even better food! I have recommended Garden of the Gods to all of my friends and family members. We worked with Jessica Johnson and her tremendous help in the planning process kept us forever grateful. We received the platinum package where we were provided with a wedding cake, our fabulous DJ and all of the floral that we need for our ceremony and reception.
We used this company for our wedding cake. The cake looked exactly the way we wanted it to, and the cake (almond) was incredible!
Great experience!Reviewed on 7/07/2015 Kimberly W
My husband and I ended up getting a package deal from Garden of the Gods Gourmet for our wedding. We were originally going to go through them just for the catering. The food at our tasting was delicious! We had the braised short ribs, chicken provencal, potatoes au gratin, and green beans and I was amazed at how everything tasted just as good at our reception! They offer a package deal where we paid about $5,000 and got catering, tablecloths, place settings, floral, DJ services, and our wedding cake. They contract with the Pinery and use their vendors, but can be used at venues other than the Pinery. All of the vendors we got through them were perfect! The servers at our reception were wonderful as well. They even had two gals keep an eye on the gluten free and nut free cupcakes so they wouldn't get mixed up and could stay available for our guests with extreme food allergies. Speaking of which, we had some guests at our wedding who were celiac, and the menu items we ordered just happened to all be gluten free. The staff was very understanding and helped us to avoid cross contamination.
Platinum Package from Garden of the Gods CateringReviewed on 6/22/2015 Blake L
Ashley from GotG Catering was fantastic! She coordinated everything through email and over the phone as we were planning from several states away. We didn't taste the food or the cake until the reception and both were awesome. Our guests were very happy with the amount and quality provided. The company provided linens and the head table centerpieces and set the up the day of the wedding. When we finally saw everything, it was very beautiful. Everyone from this company--florists, servers, DJ, coordinator, and cake chef--were professional and very experienced. Highly recommend!

The food for our wedding was amazing! All our guests loved the food, and it was exactly what we were hoping for. Planning with them was easy because they were flexible and understanding. They serve only the freshest ingredients, and the presentation complements any wedding reception decor perfectly. Garden of the Gods is delicious and a pleasure to plan with!!
