Working with Marylyn Schwartz of Juste Hors D'Oeuvres was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL from beginning to end!!! I was searching for a caterer for my children's graduation party and had something very specific in mind because my three children were graduating from middle school, high school and college all at the same time. Therefore, the party needed to be appropriate for people of all ages, including older family and friends. As I am a perfectionist, and knew that I was going to have some VERY discerning guests at this party, I initially thought myself crazy to be looking for a caterer on the internet, but after one conversation with Marylyn I knew that she understood exactly what I wanted. Throughout the planning, Marylyn was the consummate professional, immediately picking up on what was important to me and handling everything with the utmost efficiency, even as I kept adding to the number of guests up until a week before the party! Juste Hors D'Oeuvres offers a VERY EXTENSIVE AND CREATIVE MENU, and with Marylyn's guidance I was able to choose a wide variety of pass-arounds, main dishes and desserts. On the day of the party, everything turned out PERFECT. The staff, from bartenders to wait staff, were professional, hardworking and friendly. And the food??? Marylyn brought FABULOUS Chef Neal with her and everything that the two of them cooked up was DELICIOUS AND BEAUTIFULLY PREPARED. Our guests raved about everything and even commented that the hot food came out HOT, as it should!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Marylyn, Chef Neal, and the staff of Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for making this a very memorable celebration for our family!!!!

Over the years, Rich has catered many events for me. From a chefs birthday party for 13 year old girls to a fully catered holiday dinner party. Every detail was perfection and the food was amazing!

Whether you are having a small get together for a few or a large gathering, be rest assured that your event will be amazing! Chef Michel is extremely professional, respectful, and friendly! He catered 2 events for our family and we were very pleased with both. The first was a party of nearly 100 people celebrating our son’s college graduation and daughter’s high school graduation. Our second event was a last minute post Thanksgiving weekend family get together for 12-15 people. Everything from the planning, to taste testing, and delivery was on point. Aside from the food being beyond mouth watering delicious, he coordinated with outside vendors to provide everything we needed to make the graduation event beautiful. He also provided on site chefs and wait staff, all of which were professional and attentive to details. They were flexible in their assigned roles and remained past the scheduled time to attend to our guests and clean up. Our home was left as clean as it was when they arrived! Chef Michel prides himself on delivering the best quality and freshest foods possible. Other than a few items that required pre-prep (like marinating / slow cooking...definitely try the roast pork and roast chicken) everything was prepared (cut, fried, cooked, assembled etc) on site. This truly makes a difference when you’re serving items like empanadas or tostones with avocado and shrimp (both highly recommended). Chef Michel is very creative. Whether you choose something from his printed menus, have other items in mind, or even have a special recipe that you want him to prepare...HE CAN DO IT! An important point to make about his catering style is that he is so proud of his creations that he wants everyone to be able to taste everything that he prepares. If you choose an appetizer and you have 100 people, you are not going to get 1 or 2 pieces per person or be charged by the piece, like most caterers. He will make sure you have more than enough for everyone. The same applies to your main course. We had leftovers for ourselves, even after our guests took food home. With all of this said, I truly feel that his prices are fair and reasonable! I could write more and would be more than happy to speak to anyone who has any questions, but I’ll end with...make sure you try his homemade ice creams (our favorites were coconut and pineapple), flan, and especially the sangria!

We couldn't have asked for a better party--the bride to be was overwhelmed with the food and effort that Kim, our chef, provided. From start to finish Kim offered excellent menu suggestions, and planned to whole party for us. The appetizers, entree and desserts were par excellence!! The food presentation was beautiful. She even typed up the menu, which we placed at each setting. The appetizers were placed on platters with fresh flowers that matched the color of the bridal party. Our party of 24 had more than enough food, with each bite better the the last. We started off with a shrimp on a homemade wonton with green goddess dressing, Homemade hummus and guac with chips/crackers, then some meatball sliders ( the bride's fav!) and a beautiful crudite. The main course offered both chicken and steak Indonesian style with delicious sides. Kim even made a delicious carrot cake sundae for the bride to be, knowing that carrot cake was her favorite. The whole even was perfect and elegant from start to finish....we couldn't have asked for anything more. Chef Kim is wonderful!!! Thanks Kim for a fantastic night!!!

What a great job by Joe and his catering team at Angelo's Market & catering. The food was out of this world and the presentation was as if I was on a Iron Chef episode. It could not have gone any better and I definitely am going to be using Joe again. Thanks again. Robert S.

Karla took care of us in planning our menu within our budget for a large birthday party that we were planning. Both Jamie and Karla were present the day of and prepared some of the most delicious food I think I've ever had in my life. Jamie is also wildly knowledgable and willing to share a wealth of culinary information with you if you just ask. Had a great time and can't wait to hire them back again.
