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!!!!

We have had the pleasure to work with Bacco catering a number of times, and in each instance they deliver perfectly in terms of quality of food, service, and attentiveness to client needs. Most importantly, the chef creates delicious food with a warmth and responsiveness that makes it feel like it's a friend in your home. The staff are always responsive, helpful, and savvy enough to know the right balance between making sure guests are served, and not drawing attention to themselves. I would highly recommend Bacco Catering for any special event.

Chef Leslie provided a fabulous dinner for our group of 9 girls celebrating a bachelorette party. Chef Leslie was helpful and knowledgeable in picking a menu, taking advantage of the best produce available, and overall creating a great night. She was responsive, reliable, punctual and professional. The dinner was not only delicious, but she left the kitchen spotless and packed amazing goody bags with leftovers! She found her way around the kitchen with ease (we were at a home we rented, so I had no idea how to direct her if she needed help, thankfully she didn't), she made everyone comfortable and she generally was easy to have around and be around. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her for any event that you may need!

When you hire Manjar you know your event is in excellent hands! Their exquisite taste and attention to details has made our "tight budgets" into a beautiful celebration of food, decor, and specialty mocktail & cocktails. His team treats each event as if you are part of their family. Over the last 7months, I have had the pleasure of working with their event team & chefs on at least 10 events, including new product launches, corporate, wedding, and celebratory events in NJ private estates, galleries, retail environments & nyc apartments. The guests rave about the service & food. At the most recent event, my client was very demanding, last minute, with specific dietary needs... Manjar surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them for any event from a french service sit-down dinner, graduation celebration, to a summer garden cocktail party. Trust them with what you need and you will not be disappointed! Great events, all of the details attended to, and great results so you can enjoy your own event!

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!

Chef Plum cooked an amazing dinner on-site for 15 friends in Southampton. He arrived on time, brought everything we needed and even improvised the menu based on my last minute suggestions. The food was delicious and incorporated all the local fall flavors. To top it off, Chef Plum and his team even cleaned the kitchen and packaged up the leftovers. He was very accommodative with my budget as well and offered more for less than some of the other chefs in the area. All in all, this was the perfect way to prepare a casual meal for a big group of friends.

OpenSkies Hospitality are wonderful! Every aspect of our Company Holiday event was flawless. The food was superb, the Desert station was by far the most extraordinary assortment of the most delectable treats I've ever had the good fortune of tasting. Everyone raved about the event and how professional the entire night was planned and executed. Not only would I recommend Open Skies to any company that is looking for the consummate "Top Shelf" catered experience but I plan to use them again for our next company function. David was incredibly insightful and intuitive, He made planning for this event a pleasurable experience.

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

Chef Maggie is amazing! Before working with her, our meals were scattered and generally unhealthy, lots of take out and the like. We thought we didn't have time to cook healthy and quality meals, but we were wrong! She quickly determined the best ways to improve our diet, and worked with us to actually create meals that are healthy and delicious. Her meal plan has been perfect for us as novices, the meals are easy enough to create but sophisticated enough that we feel great about investing the time to prepare and enjoy them. It's such a relief knowing that we're eating well, and we couldn't have gotten on track without the expertise of Chef Maggie! I can't recommend her enough!!!

I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with Chef Julz on various events. It was wonderful to work with her! The food was beyond delicious and looked like in a gourmet magazine. She easily accommodated my request for vegetarian/vegan options when necessary. She blended into the event easily that people didn’t even notice her, replenishing food and cleaning up. She left the place clean and tidy – making the whole process look easy and effortless. I truly recommend Chef Julz to anyone who wants an unforgettable party!

Amanda and the entire AK Catering staff were ACES. Their menus are unique and versatile while also being familiar and comfortable. Everything was fresh, beautiful and delicious. I simply was the hero of my party and I barely had to lift a finger. AK Catering took care of everything. The prices are incredible and the overall service and experience was amazing. I can't wait to have another event just to book them. I am already planning on a some personal chef experiences!
