Marylyn and team catered our wedding and it could not have been more perfect! Everyone raved about the food specifically the beef. We didn't have an easy to please crowd, and yet everyone was absolutely blown away by it. Our entire wedding day went along seamlessly thanks to Marylyn and her staff. Marylyn was there every step of the way from our first phone call to the wedding day. She was so helpful specifically with rentals. We had a backyard wedding so we had to rent everything and Marylyn made it happen! We could not have been happier and would absolutely recommend Marylyn and Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for all your catering needs!

Marylyn catered our wedding at The Barn at Orchard Hill Estate in Harriman, NY. The food and venue were amazing! The food and presentation was masterful. Our guest list included quite a few world-traveling foodies. They repeatedly commented how delicious the food was.   Our 3 main dishes were: -Poached salmon with a dill cream sauce on the side, -Marinated and Grilled Beef Tenderloin w/Horseradish Crema on the Side -Roasted Chicken w/White Wine/Thyme/Garlic and Lemon We had guests whose preference ranged from rare to well done. The marinated steak was cooked perfectly for each of them. All 3 dishes were a hit and made to perfection to satisfy everyone’s palate. Marylyn was an absolute joy and easy to work with. She made our wedding spectacular.  We will definitely hire her again. I highly recommend Marylyn to anyone who wants the food for their special event to be unforgettable.

I reached out to Marylyn in January for a July wedding and she promptly got back to me. After our call, I knew I found the perfect caterer. Her level of expertise all while tailoring the menu to our liking and remaining available for a weekend tasting - even with her insanely busy schedule - did not go unnoticed. Marylyn is superb and absolutely everyone at the wedding loved her and her team. Manny (chef) was a joy to work with as well. Marylyn transformed into our event planner, caterer, mom (made sure I ate day of), friend, etc. Simply put, she's one of a kind and I'm looking for any excuse to book Juste Hors D'Oeuvres once again. Also, want to point out we had last minute adjustments that Marylyn seamlessly accommodated sparing me the headache. We also had 3 seniors at the wedding and Marylyn's team ensured they were taken care of; incredibly attentive. Bilingual staff was a bonus! Marylyn, we love you!

My husband and I found just hors d'oeuvres through the thumbtack app. We were lucky to have been contacted by Marylyn seeing that our event was scheduled only 1 month prior. Marylyn and her team knew exactly how to guide us through a very last minute wedding planning. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal! Our guests loved the food. It’s been almost 2 weeks and I’m still getting compliments. Thank you!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing should be customized to the clients' budget parameters. We are not an "off-the-shelf" catering company with prices for set packages. We feel that there are too many hidden costs in packages. Every proposal we make is broken down into the main components. This gives clients the ability to make financial decisions from a place of knowledge. Menus are developed in consultation with our clients. When we understand their wants and needs, we are empowered to work diligently to create a perfect and affordable event!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Personalized consultation is the key to a perfect event. By chatting with my prospects and asking some key questions, together we are able to hone in on the perfect mix of wants and needs and develop the right budget parameters. As catering pros, there are times we suggest options to our clients that they would not have thought of themselves often resulting in the saving of time and money! While we all love social media and e-mail, neither are the right way to plan a perfect event!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Our Chefs, Bartenders and other Staff are highly experienced. I spent many years as a teacher then a VP in a Fortune 500 company. It is the combination of exemplary cooking and planning coupled with savvy business prowess that built this business into a thriving success. We are the pros ready to assist you at every turn!!!
