Marylyn was simply amazing when it came to helping me with my upcoming wedding. She is so down to earth, straight forward & really cares about you & what you would like. She also helps with saving you the most $ & comparing prices from chairs/linens to flowers to entertainment. She really knows what she’s doing & did not disappoint. I definitely look forward to working with her in the future for other parties. The menu was also perfection!!

The food was great, we settled on a menu that had meat, seafood, and vegan options and everyone had something they enjoyed. Regardless of the diet there were absolutely no complaints about the food. The setup was very professional, the staff arrived on time and cleaned up nicely after the event. Unfortunately, there were a few snags in the details, such as: Marylyn promised to bring the table numbers and did not, so after we wrote out table cards, the guests had no idea which table was which and ended up sitting wherever they wanted anyway. The caterer was also not terribly helpful in figuring out what to purchase for the bar since we were handling the alcohol, I googled stocking a bar, and that worked great, we didn't run out of anything and there wasn't a ton left over. There was also some kind of miscommunication on what the cupcakes were supposed to look like, and the vegan cupcake options were not labeled and set out separately, they were just plated and put out with the dairy cupcakes, so some of the vegans still didn't get desert. If you are a real stickler on details I would encourage you to have an event planner deal with this catering company, or contact them often and ask to review specific details over and over again. I did my wedding without much help, so there was a lot I had to let slide and trust other people to do what they promised. On the whole it was the event we wanted and we were satisfied. I would definitely order food from this caterer again, although I wouldn't rely on them for preparations.

Thank you for the review, Sarah. I know that I could easily counter several of your concerns. There really is no point. I am such a stickler for details as most of my testimonials attest to. Know that we did our best to make you and your family happy. Best wishes for a wonderful life!!!!

We recently used Juste Hors D’Oeuvres for our wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier! The wedding was in the middle of the woods, no electric or water and Marylyn knew exactly what was needed. She wasn’t just our caterer; she was essentially our wedding manager when it came to ordering everything we needed for the reception. Marylyn’s personality, professionalism and responsiveness made me feel at ease, I wasn’t stressed one bit, I put all my faith and trust in Marylyn and her team, and they did not disappoint. I’m so happy I found Juste Hors D’Oeuvres!! At the tasting we met the Chef, Manny. He was wonderful and talented. All of the food we tried during the tasting, and then at our wedding was EXCEPTIONAL! My husband is a foodie, as are many of our friends and family, everyone is still raving about the food Manny, Marylyn and the team made for us. The quality of the food was top notch, if you want true good food and a memorable meal, I would HIGHLY recommend Juste Hors D’Oeuvres. The entire team went above and beyond. They all were so polite, kind and accommodating! Everything was amazing! I would recommend hiring them for any event! Thank you all so much for making our wedding perfect, if there is ever another event anyone in our family needs catered, you will be the company we use!

Mary, thank you so very, very much for that lovely and kind review. It was nothing but a true pleasure to work with and for you both. Without your willingness to listen and receive suggestions, I would NEVER have been able to pull this wedding together. We were truly an amazing TEAM. XX Marylyn

From the minute we spoke to Marylyn when searching for a caterer for our wedding we felt comforted and listened too. She was willing to work around our small budget and still provide us with a delicious meal that many of our guests raved about. The baker they work with was equally as delicious and there were no canollis that went uneaten. She was responsive and worked with some limitations with our event s kitchen space as well. The staff was amazing really amazing and took care of communicating with friends and family to make special plates for us and for others who needed to take home plates (because they were such generous portions)! They were all very kind and helped tremendously with the clean up of the event space. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked with Juste Hors D'Oeuvres and to have had a most beautiful and magical wedding day.

Marylyn and her team were just simply amazing. Marylyn worked tirelessly even before the actual wedding date to ensure everything would be perfect on the day of. She is responsive, professional and caring - and most importantly, her food is AMAZING. All our guests left happy with full stomachs and we received so many positive comments and compliments about the food. Marylyn and her team made our wedding even more memorable and special with their professional service and delicious food.

  • 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!!!
