CBD is always 5 star quality from start to finish
I have organized several events and used CBD. EVERY time my experience has been extremely positive. From Michael's help to organizing the event to delivery and set up by wonderful staff to final clean up, I can't tell you how much of a pleasure it is working with the CBD team. The food is always outstanding and outshines every other caterer I have experienced hands down. Some of my favorite menu items include lollipop lamb chops, lobster bisque, homemade pigs in a blanket and surf and turf. CBD accommodates most, if not all, dietary requirements from gluten free to vegan and everything in between. The owner, Peter, takes a vested interest in each event demonstrating his commitment to providing high-quality service. Gary's efforts with presentation and flowers (and much, much more!) are amazing and he makes you feel at ease when you may be little stressed from organizing an event. CBD is by far the best catering company in the Philadelphia area.

Always and everywhere the Best
Since 1994, CBD has created fabulous events for our family and our colleagues. From bar mitzvah, 80 person seder, to an incredible wedding on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Peter Loevy and his team has made the most special days even more special. And they have performed equally well with respect to major galas for work and intimate work dinners at home. There is nothing they can't do. We have probably done at least twenty five events with CBD, and there has never been a disappointment.
The food is always special, delicious and different; the service excellent, and the event unsurpassed.

Worry Free Events - Always to a Standard of Excellence
We have used CBD for many years. It is one email to set up an event and then everything is worry free. A menu appears for selection, their always wonderful staff shows up on time and ready to work to make your event a success. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is always delicious and the raves follow from guests. We could not be happier with CBD. Dan and Peter know what they are doing!

A success every event!
I've worked with Catering By Design on several corporate events over the years. Every time, CBD has helped make the event a success! From private dinners to open house receptions, CBD brings creativity and high-touch service to everything they do. Not to mention delicious food!

Come to the Casbah!
Catering by design did the most fantastic bar mitzvah for my son Joshua.!!!' Not only did they do a lovely kiddush lunch, but at night they transformed the room into a Moroccan palace complete with colored silks to drape the ceiling & waiters wearing amazing fez hats! The center pieces were so original like nothing any one had ever seen! The kids dined on the floor at low tables and sat on custom pillows which they got to keep! The food was first rate! Authentic and exotic and delish!
A pleasure to deal with Dan Love! Every detail was attended to! People still talk about this event.

Heads above the competition
We have used Catering by Design for over 25 years and have never been disappointed. They work with your budgets and dietary restrictions and have the most wonderful help ever. Every time they come its as if family were coming home. The food is inventive, colorful and delicious. In addition they have a party planner who helped in our son's engagement party to help make that day even more special..A whole hearted recommendation from my heart.

Great Group of People, and the FOOD is ALWAYS FANTASTIC !
I've worked with Catering By Design on a few jobs.
I'm a videographer, so I have an insider's viewpoint.
Working behind the scenes, they are a great group of people. The FOOD is ALWAYS FANTASTIC, and Dan Love seems to keep things running smoothly.
Nancy Schwoebel is very good at her job, too !
I've had very good experiences each time. Would recommend highly.

Caterer par excellence!
We were pleased with Dan Love and his team for their painstaking attention to detail, responsiveness and ability to meet all our needs and expectations for our daughter's wedding.

Just the perfect evening!
Last year CBD catered our weeding at the College of Physicians. We could not have asked for a better evening. The whole experience from beginning to end was wonderful. I felt like our wedding was the most important event they were staging. Every detail was attended to: the food, the decor, the special touches that my husband and I wanted. Peter was there at every moment during our event, making sure that my husband and I were enjoying ourselves and that the event flowed perfectly. All of my "silly" questions about set up and event flow were answered promptly and I always felt we were in great hands. And I should say it again -- the food was great.
CBD also catered our engagement party 6 months earlier, which was at a small venue in Wayne. Again, just perfect.

Consistently the best
I've worked with CBD on a number of events and attended many more - some large and over the top and some small and intimate.
The food is consistently great, the presentation is inventive and the staff is friendly and accommodating.

CBD is my "Go To" Caterer
I first worked with the Catering by Design team when planning a milestone birthday party. Nancy was both knowledgeable and innovative, and worked hard to pull off my vision for the party. In the end, it was a fantastic event! The food was delicious, the staff professional and personable, and the planning seamless.
Since the party, I have used CBD To Go (and their bartending staff) for holiday parties. Of course, the food and staff are consistently great; however, there are added benefits of having a wide range of food options (regardless of number of people) and home delivery. My guests, who are quite diverse (e.g., vegetarians, non-pork/beef eaters, pescetarians, etc.), always leave happy and fondly remember my parties.

Excellent for Corporate or Social Events
I have had the pleasure of working with CBD on several instances, including a gala event for 250 people and multi-day conferences for over 200. I have seen and tasted their continental breakfasts and corporate lunches as well as their more formal dinners. The food was very good and the quality consistent from day to day.
From the early planning stages and through several long conference days, the staff couldn't have been nicer or more professional. While their attention to detail was excellent, their ability to anticipate was equally strong, two qualities so important when hiring a caterer. I have enjoyed working with them and hope to again soon.
