  • When my husband and I first started wedding planning, we treated it a lot like a chore. It wasn't necessarily something we were looking forward to. Being introduced to Laurie and David at Joshua's Catering changed all that for us. From the very first tasting we did with them, all the way through to the last call on our wedding night, Laurie was super fun and easy to work with. Her and David listened to our vision from day one and delivered a truly memorable wedding night for us. Our guests raved about the food, the bar service was seamless, and they acted as true partners with us throughout the process. It was so easy to tell how much they both loved what they do. There's really nothing we would have changed or asked them to differently; they were complete rockstars

  • I cant write enough good things about Joshuas Catering. From day one, they were amazing. I kept looking at their pictures and thinking "this has to be a trick - there's no way their food can look that good at this price for a wedding" but it totally does!!! That good and better! The staff was so easy and enjoyable to work with. Every time we met we just wanted to hang out with them longer. So sincere and down to earth and invested in making your vision come through. David worked really well with us on some of our more interesting requests. We had mini-sliders Bob's Burgers style (for those that done know, there's a burger-a-day that's a pun), and even came up with some puns of his own for us - "Two-cheddar forever." ! They laughed when every other word out of my husband's mouth was "so we can have pigs in a blanket too, right???" They were so flexible and worked with my to serve a very special bunch of crescent rolls to my "cousins table" as a running inside joke in our family... Read more

  • Joshua's was incredible from the first tasting through the dessert at the wedding. All of our guests raved about the food...it was truly top notch. Laurie was so friendly and accommodating during all of our meetings and they were extremely organized and easy to communicate with. The service was also great on the day of the wedding. This is a great value for the high quality food and service that they provide.

  • Joshua's Catering provided amazing service, food selections, drinks service and more. Laurie coordinated everything, and it was all pulled together seamlessly. We got married at an outdoor venue that involved some creativity as to where set up for cocktail hour and other special additions. We had a separate vendor deliver desserts, and we provided the alcohol. Each vendor coordinated with Laurie, and she figured it all out to make the vision come together perfectly. Not only that, but during our cocktail hour and party, she continually checked in on us to freshen our drinks and/or make sure we got to taste the food. The quality of the food was superb, and the amount we paid for it was very reasonable (and less than what was quoted from other vendors in Philly). The staff they brought to the site was also amazing. There were at least 17 people working behind the scenes, at the bar, and to clean up who were efficient and friendly. We were thrilled to have chosen Joshua's to cater our w... Read more

  • Joshua's Catering was fantastic. They handled my sit down rehearsal dinner for 45 at our home and handled the day after catered breakfast for 60 and BBQ and Clambake for over 100 on Sunday in our backyard under a Tent environment. The chefs, Susan and Bridgette were amazing and the food was spectacular. My guests were amazed and were quite appreciative of their friendly service and professionalism. I cannot wait to use their services again and hoping that some of my friends use their services in the future.

  • Joshua's was great! The food was amazing and the guests are still raving. Joshua's took care of everything for the day. Everything I asked for came out wonderfully. I could not have had a better team to work with to make the most memorable day of my life come to reality.

  • Joshua's Catering was awesome! They were wonderful for our summer wedding in July and my husband and I would use them again for future events. All the staff from day 1 were friendly and excited to be a part of our event. They knew how to advise in such a nice manner to keep us and our guests all happy. Everyone commented on how great the dishes we had were at our wedding. The food was flavorful, appealing to the eye, and perfect for the season we were in- the dead heat of summer. Can't say enough about all of the staff from meetings leading up to our actual big day- everyone was spectacular to work with and just so pleasant. Thank you again to everyone at Joshua's!!

  • I can not tell you how much we enjoyed working with Laurie and Joshua's Catering. The Chef David and his team impressed us from the first tasting. Laurie was a joy to work with, relaxed, helpful and on top of everything. They understood our vision and what we wanted to make our wedding perfect. The food was tasty, fresh and unique. Service that day was great, and prices are reasonable. The team really made our day perfect. I can't thank them enough. The fresh fish was my favorite, curried chicken cones and dessert was delish! Use these people, they are great.

  • Joshua's Catering catered our wedding at Morris Arboretum and we could not be happier that we chose them. From the very first phone call I made, both Laurie and David were an absolute pleasure to work with. Our tasting took place at their beautiful studio and when we walked in they had an adorable table set for two and then proceeded to serve us some of the most delicious food we've ever tasted. It felt like a legitimate date night! It's important to note that he serves you nearly full portions so resist the temptation to finish each plate as he'll pack up all the left overs for you to enjoy again at home. After we made our food selections, Laurie made the rest of the planning process a breeze. She is professional, organized, incredibly sweet and has a very calm demeanor -- very important to have that kind of energy while planning your wedding :) We also worked with Bridget, a graphic designer who works with Laurie and David. She designed and printed all of our printed goods for ... Read more

  • We used Joshua's Catering for our wedding. Our whole experience with them was amazing! Laurie was absolutely wonderful to work with. From day one, I felt like ours was the only event she was working on. She was always available for questions and willing to do whatever she could to help. Joshua's Catering is truly gourmet on a budget. I honestly never thought we could have served the food we did on our budget. Everywhere else we looked said our best bet was a buffet, but with Laurie and Joshua's Catering, plated meals were never a question. When we went to our tasting, I remember thinking something must be wrong here. Everything was so delicious and beautifully plated, I thought somewhere the numbers must be off, but they weren't! And at any point we had a budget issue, Laurie was always willing to work with us or offer suggestions for cost savings. We also used their baker, Amy, for our wedding cake, which, of course, was also delicious. I was able to send Laurie a picture of how we wo... Read more

  • Joshua's Catering had us from the very first tasting! An amazing afternoon at their kitchen was artfully produced and Laurie was there to walk us through it every step of the way. We each had special requests that were granted with flair and allowed us to put a signature flair to our menus. Additionally, we had lots of ideas that we wanted for decorations and Laurie ran with it and helped plan and set it up with perfection!! The staff on the big day was spectacular. No one wanted for anything. 2+ years later and our friends still rave about the food at our wedding!! Thank you so much, Laurie and the entire staff of Joshua's Catering!!

  • My name is Margee Barth, our beautiful nuptials and ceremony rated five stars across the board in large part due to the caterer Joshua's. We first visited two other caterers that were the approved for the property. We didn't feel either of the caterers listened and the food was really disappointing. I had a conversation with the event coordinator Laurie Durkin, she asked some questions and then set up our first tasting. The tasting with Laurie and head chef/owner David Hall, was relaxed and so impressive. The tasting sealed the deal. The food samples reflected my preferences, I explained our crowd was mixed with seafood lovers, vegetarians and carnivores. We sampled Filet Crostini, Lump crab on endive and Risotto balls w/pesto cream. We added a grilled veggie platter with assorted dips and a local Pennsylvania Cheese spread that catered to our mixed foodie crowd. Happy hour was a big success. The bartenders and wait staff pleasantly and efficiently kept us fed and the drinks wer... Read more

  • Our wedding celebration was everything that we hoped it would be and we have David Hall and his team to thank. My wife Bonnie and I were married on June 28 and held our wedding celebration for 70 guests at Curtis Hall on September 13. The evening was perfection from start to finish. David is a superb chef. Our guests, many of them foodies, were delighted with the food. Joshua's baker Amy is the best. We heard that people took second helpings. The wait staff was courteous, helpful and gracious. And Laurie is a coordinator extraordinaire! Every little detail of our party was remembered and handled effortlessly. She made the evening as smooth as silk, while we had the time of our lives. They are all simply the best.

  • If you are looking to relax and not have to do anything the day of your wedding while other people wait on you, Joshua's is not for you. We were very impressed by them initially and enjoyed our tasting, both Laurie, the coordinator, and David, the chef/owner were very nice. However, during planning Laurie was not very responsive to emails. The day of the wedding she didn't show up until dinner, and those she put in charge, try as they might to be helpful, were not equipped with the information that I had spent MONTHS preparing and discussing with Laurie. The bartender, though sweet, was completely incompetent. Over-poured liquor we provided, did not know how to make (or sometimes even pronounce) basic drinks and our specialty cocktails. Staff cleared full glasses from tables. Unfortunately, having no one in charge the day of who knew what they were doing meant that anytime there was a problem someone came to me. This was my wedding day, one I worked really hard to plan. Ev... Read more
