    We met Joseph and Jen at the rental showroom a little less than a year before our wedding. They genuinely wanted to get to know us and help us have the best wedding celebration possible. They took the reign of our wedding and made a spreadsheet that thinks of everything a bride and groom should think about before their wedding. It felt like we had hired planners as well as caterers. We had several touch bases throughout the months and got everything finalized about a week out from the wedding. He helped us work within our budget and didn't try and rip us off in any way.
    The food and energy of the wedding was incredible. So many people had told us the hors d'ouevres were the best they have had. They had made sure my husband and I and our family was taken care of the whole night.
    Genuine good people, good food, and good service. They had made the venue look so gorgeous and elegant and didn't bother me at all while I was getting ready in the bridal suite. They are the complete packages and true professionals. We are so happy they made our wedding so memorable and would recommend them over and over again.

    When we 1st spoke to Joseph Farahat on the phone we felt a connection. Our conversation lasted over an hour & he asked several questions about us, our relationship, and what we were looking for. He gave us some tips on how to save money. It didn't feel like a vendor/client phone call but rather a conversation between friends.

    We had many meetings and phone calls with him to plan out every detail. We had floorpans, lists & spreadsheets, which at 1st feels overwhelming but by the end we realized all the paperwork kept everyone on the same page & left no question unanswered. He was very accommodating to our busy schedules & made himself available on weekends & evenings.

    The food was also delicious! David Josephs invited us to a restaurant they own to do a menu tasting! We tried dozens of food items & gave notes and narrowed down to the food we exactly wanted. Everyone at the wedding complimented the food and said it was one of the best.

    David Josephs isn't just a catering company. They basically took the role of a wedding coordinator. They worked with all our vendors simultaneously. Joseph's partner Jen was by our side for most of the wedding, answering every question we had, solving every minor problem that arose, and even would just magically appear with a tray of drinks, anticipating that we would want one.

    We truly felt catered by Joseph, Jen and the rest of the David Josephs Catering company on our wedding day. They truly took the time and energy to give us exactly what we wanted and added so much to the magical day. They were so personal and caring, we truly feel like we made some new friends with Joseph and Jen and will definitely keep in touch with them.

    I can't speak highly enough about David Josephs Catering. From the first time that we sat down with Joseph to the tail end of our wedding, he was attentive, open to different ideas, and completely on the ball. If my husband or I had questions, he was quick to answer them and the day of, he and the rest of his kick-ass staff did an absolutely amazing job. The food was spectacular and I couldn't have been more happy with their work. A++

    We loved working with David Joseph's Catering! Joseph was fantastic about taking care of the bridal party before and after the ceremony. There was some fruit and cheese in the bridal suite before the ceremony, and then after the ceremony, he made sure that my husband and I got a chance to try every hors d'oeuvre that was being served during cocktail hour. The fact that he brought food to us as we were taking a moment to relax after the ceremony was truly a life-saver. And most importantly, everything tasted great! They also managed to execute a delicious dinner at the Museum of the Moving Image, which has unique restrictions, such as no open flame. They are great about covering all the details and making sure you don't have to worry about any of it. They were also wonderful about working within our price range and offering solutions to meet our budget. They truly seem to love what they do, and that makes all the difference.

    Everything was perfect, and Joseph and his team went ABOVE AND BEYOND every step of the way. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the wonderful food (especially at a museum venue without a kitchen!) and how friendly and attentive the entire team was. From the tasting to the wedding, everyone was extremely professional, prompt and organized. Joseph helped us think through all details of our wedding (far beyond the catering/rentals) and helped us feel relaxed and ready for the big day. I really don't think we could have pulled the wedding off without Joseph, Jen and the rest of the team's help. If you're looking for a catering company for your wedding or event, there's no one better than David Joseph's Catering!!!!

    We used David Josephs catering for our wedding reception held at Midtown Loft and Terrace. They were nothing but spectacular. They provided food, rentals, and staff-- all of which far exceeded our expectations at a very reasonable price. If you, like us, are trying to put on a 5 star wedding (while avoiding 5 star prices) stop now and give them a call. You will not regret it. Leading up to the wedding, we coordinated with Joseph, one of the co-owners. To say that he was more than accommodating is an understatement. He worked with us around our schedule (which is hectic) and meant lots of weekend mornings. No problem, he was available. Above that, he made us feel so at ease with the process, Joseph was on it. He went way above and beyond in helping us capture our vision and give us the wedding of our dreams. He helped us coordinate the food, decor, rentals, staff, flow of events... basically the entire day, and all of it was perfect. The food was incredible. Their standard menu includes tons of options across a wide spectrum of cuisines. All of it is absolutely delicious. They even went as far as creating dishes off menu for us at our request! Day of, they provided a staff fit for an army. Everyone was so professional, friendly, and tended to our guests (and us) religiously. Joseph stayed on site the entire evening (!) and his captain, Jen, was awesome. We can’t say enough how fantastic the team was. Finally, cost. We received quotes from dozens of caterers, and none of them could provide the level of service or food quality at the price David Josephs quoted us. It’s really amazing how reasonable their cost is compared to the amount that you are getting. Now that it’s over, so many people are telling us, verbatim, "this was the best wedding I have ever been to". We completely agree. Sitting here writing this, my new wife just said to me, "I got my dream wedding". I did too, and you will as well if you go with David Josephs catering.

    Our wedding was absolutely flawless and David Joseph's was completely the reason why. It was beyond professional service. We didn't need a wedding planner or coordinator because they took care of EVERYTHING. 6 months later and we're still hearing from people that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Trust these guys to do their job- they know what they're doing and made me feel completely relaxed the day of- I was the opposite of the typical stressed out bride. I'm still shocked that it went so well and that people had such an amazing time, especially considering the value for the price. Joseph helped save us so much money because he was completely honest with what mattered to spend your money on and what really wasn't necessary. Hiring them was the best decision we made!

    David, Joseph and all of their staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day more perfect than I could have ever imagined. Their professionalism, attention to detail and calm under pressure made them such a pleasure to work with. Jen - the captain - was exceptional and made sure that everything ran smoothly. She was outstanding and I do not think that the day would have run as it did without her and Joseph's leadership. And the food?!?! Everyone raved about how incredible it was. We did a BBQ theme and I cannot stop dreaming about the Mac & Cheese. They took our BBQ concept and turned it into high end dining! What a treat. If you are planning a wedding, I highly recommend DJ Catering. They will make the most special day of your life even more than you could have ever dreamed of!

    What can I say about David Josephs that hasn't already been said? They treated us like family throughout our entire wedding process - nothing was too much for them to do and no detail was too small for them to overlook. When we booked our wedding at the Foundry, which is a totally blank space where everything needs to brought in (tables, chairs, forks, literally everything), I was overwhelmed with the prospect of planning out all these details on my own. I shouldn't have even thought about it, because this incredible team took care of every small detail for us. They knew what to order and exactly how much, so that none of my guests would have known for an instant that just hours before the wedding, the venue was completely empty. This team is so passionate about what they do that I felt completely comfortable handing the reins over to them for much of the planning - this is what you NEED when planning a wedding. They seemed to approach our wedding with the same level of passion and care as if they were handling the wedding of one of their own family. I cannot tell you how special that made us feel or how grateful we are to them for what they did for us.

    As for the food - I have not stopped getting compliments since my wedding. It was just phenomenal. This is not typical wedding food, but the kind of meal you would expect to get a high-end restaurant. The presentation was gorgeous, and people could not stop coming up to tell me how delicious everything was. Everyone tells you that you won't eat at your wedding, but I don't think there was a single thing that I did not taste at mine, just because I knew I could not miss it. That, coupled with the incredible service, just made for an outstanding effort on their part. Booking this team was simply the best decision of our wedding, as they made the planning seamless, and the actual wedding was just more than I could have ever imagined or asked for. I will always be so grateful for what they created for us.

    An outstanding group of people who are genuine, caring, and experts at what they do. They catered my wedding and no detail was too small for them. The took care of everything! The food was amazing and the service impeccable. I would recommend them for any type of event. While they do take their business seriously, they are casual enough that working with them was like working with members of your family and you are not made to feel like your event is part of a production line. Highly recommend them!

    We mainly worked with Joseph Farahat of David Josephs Catering, and from the first meeting he immediately made me feel confident that my husband and I, our family, and guests would be taken care of. His consultations are more reminiscent of old friends talking over coffee. He was so accommodating with every meeting we had, and paid great attention to every aspect of our wedding reception. During our meetings, he made very helpful suggestions and worked hard to stay within our budget. He truly took out the stress of planning a wedding receptio9 and made it fun.

    On the day of the wedding, my guests actually came early, and Joseph and his staff accommodated them and made sure they had an enjoyable time before the actual start of the cocktail hour. His staff also made sure my husband and I had some food to eat, and actually tracked us down during the cocktail hour to make sure we had food and drinks. Our family members commented on how professional and friendly, and caring the entire staff was. All of our guests felt their service was top notch.
    And of course... THE FOOD was beyond delicious, and beautifully presented. To my husband and I, who are foodies by nature, our wedding food had to be spectacular, and David Josephs Catering exceeded our expectations. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was. Their menu is very extensive, and you will have a ball during your tasting-- GO HUNGRY!!
    On top of the delicious food, all of my guests told me that the way the staff presented the meals were so classy- that the dinner part of my reception was like eating in a 5 star restaurant. Towards the end of the dinner, they even made foil swan takeout packages for our guests!

    We highly recommend David Josephs Catering for a wedding, and any other special event. Hopefully one day we get a chance to work with them again for our catering needs!! Thank you so much for making our wedding day truly memorable!!

    We made a great decision when we chose David Josephs to cater our wedding last October. From our first meeting Joseph was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our ideas and added his own to put together a complete plan for our event, working within our budget. When any problems came up, as they always will, he was there with a solution and a calming presence making sure that we were totally satisfied.

    Working with Joseph and chef David we created a delicious menu with a great assortment of hors d'oeuvres for our cocktail hour. The dinner included some special ethnic dishes we requested and the food quality was the best! The staff was professional and went out of their way to make our guests comfortable. Our experience with David Josephs was first rate and we would highly recommend them.

    I just got married in my back yard on October 1st, hosting 160 people. It's always been my dream to get married at home but once the process starts, you realize that what you're essentially doing is building a restaurant. The details can pretty overwhelming what with everything else you have to do. Once I hired David Josephs, it was if a huge responsibility had been taken away from me. They think of every last detail. They have impeccable taste and an ability to "see" your event and how exactly it will unfold. They were even able to talk me out of a few things they said I would not need and they were exactly right, saving me money to boot. The owners are so down to earth and easy to talk to, you really feel taken care of and almost like good friends from the start. And then there's the food. Six weeks later and I can't go into the post office or the supermarket or anywhere in the town I live without someone commenting on the food. Our appetizers were so over the top perfect and delicious and beautiful, it was like being in a four star restaurant. Oftentimes, the presentation or the "fancy" nature of an hors d'oeuvre takes the place of taste. Not so with these guys. Every bite everyone took was followed with that look you give to the person next to you that says, "oh my God." The cocktail party food ranged from dumplings in tiny Chinese take out containers with their own chopsticks, to tuna sashimi on crisps to buffalo style mini meatballs to a variety of gourmet cheeses grilled on tiny sourdough squares and a variety of others. They have A LOT to choose from. Everything was passed and looking lovely on white trays with fresh flower garnishes. It was always HOT and that's hard to pull off when you're working outside. Insofar as dinner is concerned, we had requested an Italian style buffet meal. The owners encouraged me to add a sauce on the side to my chicken milanese, a putanesca, and I'm still being complimented on it. I wanted eggplant parmigiana and they suggested eggplant napoleons, harder to make but better looking and I wish I had a plate in front of me right now. The veggies were vibrant and flavorful, the pasta was perfect...even the bread served with little side bowls of olive oil were fabulous. Believe me, with a lot of Italian mothers on the guest list, serving Italian was risky but we got rave reviews from even the pickiest of cooks! On top of all this, they are complete pros when it comes to set up and clean up. They took great care in my kitchen, papering the floors and leaving my counters and sink cleaner than they were before. They cooked the main meal out of my GARAGE and clearly brought everything they would possibly need to pull that off. In short (ha ha) do yourself a favor and cross one major thing off your list of things to worry about... hire David Josephs for your wedding. You will be nothing less than thrilled and your guests will be completely impressed.

    I had seen David Josephs Catering over the years at events at a friends home over the last 8 years and had always wanted to use them. Very recently I finally had a chance to use them myself and was so excited by how wonderful they were. Not only were they professional and flexible ( 50 of my guests started showing up an hour late) - they couldn't have been more respnsive to my needs. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. I would recommend them very highly. Anyone who uses them will not be disappointed!!

    This was not my first experience with David Josephs Catering. This was just another successful party where David Josephs was the key ingredient. The food quality was excellent and the selection that David helped to choose insured that everyone's taste and diet was satisfied.
    David supplied the servers, including a bartender, as well. Everything happened according to plan and schedule from the start and up to desert. At the end of the party the servers packed up all the left overs and cleaned up to point where the house looked like it did before the party. Tremendous job!
