ABOUT US

Culinary Creativity and Professional Service

are the hallmarks of what we provide all clients.

Get to know Garnish.

Garnish was founded with a core staff with over 45 years of combined catering experience. Our clients come from corporate, private, and government sectors and each seek an extreme level of culinary creativity and service.

Garnish has been quickly recognized for the excellence we provide clients by being named to numerous preferred caterers lists across the state of Virginia.

Being named to serve the clients of these venues speaks to more than just the level of culinary & service experience we can provide, it is a recognition that our staff have an extreme interest in recognizing and preserving these facilities for future guests and generations. Our staff acknowledges that we are indeed fortunate enough to be working in these venues while being able to both showcase and appreciate our surroundings.

Garnish also has a strong desire to help and serve the greater Richmond community. To accomplish this we have already partnered with numerous non-profit organizations to support their missions. 

We take it personally.

Our Process

Garnish takes a very personalized approach to menu planning for events. Rather than hand potential clients a list of what they can choose from for their event we take the time to meet multiple times with clients to understand their preferences for the event. This creates a much more personalized menu that is reflected in the food we serve.

Meeting with clients also allows for the Garnish staff to fully address and remedy any concerns clients have with potential food allergies and dietary restrictions that a set list of items may not accommodate. Clients also appreciate this approach as we are truly able to work within a set budget to deliver the highest quality of food while respecting a fiscal responsibility to each client.

Garnish is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to serve the needs of our clients.

Garnish catered our wedding last month and they did an outstanding job. The food was absolutely delicious - all our guests are still talking about the great meal they had. They were flexible and accomodating and helped us to create our dream wedding menu. We were able to create a family-style meal that would accomodate anyones' dietary restrictions, no one left hungry. Their service was outstanding too. We would highly recommend Garnish for your next wedding or event!

We used Garnish catering for our rehearsal dinner, and the food was amazing and they were fantastic to work with. Louis clearly put a lot of thought into tailoring a menu that reflected my husband's Georgia roots, and his family raved about how they felt like they were back at home eating their grandmother's southern cooking (which, is the highest compliment you can receive from a south-Georgia family!). We also opted to have a bourbon tasting bar, and the attention to detail (creating individual descriptions of each one) was well beyond what we had hoped or asked for. Louis and his team were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end, and we can't say enough wonderful things about them. We will no doubt be using them many more times in the future and look forward to working with them again!

Garnish helped with a holiday party my organization threw m, and they couldn’t have been more pleasant to work with. We had issues with ABC, and they went above and beyond to help us. The food was outstanding, and they were more than accommodating during the event. Would definitely recommend and will absolutely use again.

Garnish catered my daughters wedding last weekend. Five food stations providing excellent fair for our guests. Very professional staffing and service all evening. Guests are still talking about the evening. Best wedding food I think I have ever had. Thank you Garnish!

"Garnish is a fabulous caterer. Their staff is so easy to work with and professional and folks continue to rave about the food for months after. Caleb is a breeze to work with and makes menu planning easy. I highly recommend them for any event." - Maddie W.

 

"Garnish prepared a brunch for my wife's relatives as part of our daughter's wedding weekend. We do not live in Richmond but we would hire Garnish in a minute if we did. The food was prepared quickly and it was delicious. The servers were outstanding and left the kitchen cleaner than before they arrived. We could not recommend Garnish more highly." - Tobin A.

 

"Garnish catered our wedding, and they did an amazing job! They were able to create a custom 'Oktoberfest' themed meal for us at  an extremely reasonable price. Their staff is extremely friendly, and all of the servers were professional. We got the sense they were passionate about what they do, and our wedding was 'just another event'. They were very upfront with us on the pricing, and didn't force us to pay for anything extra or something that we could get on our own. Would recommend 100%!" - Dan R.

"Can’t say anything other than WOW! Caleb and the rest of the garnish catering crew were amazing. They catered our wedding which was about 100 people and did an amazing job. The food was great and the service and attentiveness to detail was even better. Very affordable, professional, and made us feel how much they appreciated our business! If I ever need anything catered in the future they will be the first people I call!." - Timothy M.

 

"Garnish catered our wedding and they were fantastic. We worked with Caleb and he was great with really listening to what we wanted and what kind of food my husband and I liked. We had such a unique menu (chicken and waffles, Thai fried rice station, AND steak/potatoes/veggies). Everything was absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about the food and service (and they still are). The staff at our wedding were nothing but courteous and helpful. Caleb made sure I was comfortable and really went the extra mile to make everything perfect. We highly recommend Garnish!" - Alyssa L.

"Everything about the food was beyond amazing! Our trial went so well - full course meals and happy bellys at the end. We even had a few alteration requests after, which they made with no hassle at all. On the day of, they didn't bother us with questions - which was so lovely! They dealt with the alcohol (which we bought and gave to them the night before) setup, pouring and breakdown. Every guest gushed over the fact that we had a meatball bar - best choice over all!!" - Leigha

 

"We looked into many different caterers for our wedding day 07/29/17, but we were so excited when we found Garnish Catering! Louis is amazing! He really got to know us which helped him personalize everything to our style. He was always very responsive and easy going. He answered so many questions for us and gave us much advice from the time we booked him until our big day." - Kelsea

 

"Louis and his team are so wonderful. They spent many hours with us planning/providing tastings/arranging the layout of the venue to advising us on the amount of liquor/wine and beer needed. Our daughter's ideas changed a few times but Louis was always the professional and honest in his advice. The food was fabulous and the venue awesome. We would definitely use Garnish again without any hesitation! They made our daughter's wedding reception an event to remember!" - Carolyn
