"Wow! Chef Marylyn and Chef Manny far exceeded our expectations."
"The food they prepared for my dad's 90th birthday party was sensational. Chef Marylyn went above and beyond to help me plan the meal and organize the rental equipment necessary to make the event a special day. Her team was particularly accommodating and sensitive to the social distancing protocols due to COVID. I would highly recommend Chef Marylyn's Juste Hors D'oeuvres and Much More for any event, large and small. Thank you Chef Marylyn and Chef Manny for a memorable day!"

"It was an absolute pleasure working with you (40th birthday celebration). The staff were so friendly and the food was delicious."
"I had the pleasure of working with Marylyn and Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for my 40th birthday celebration. Marylyn was amazing to work with. She responded to my initial contact within 24 hours and was always quick to respond to my follow-up questions. For my dinner, Marylyn and team prepared appetizers, a dinner buffet, dessert and provided a bartender. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and the drinks were amazing. I highly recommend Marylyn and team for any event, and look forward to working with her in the future."

"You made so many great choices for the party, (50th birthday celebration) and I know that I made the best choice in selecting you for the event."
"Marylyn, I write to thank you for catering my 50th birthday party in midtown Manhattan on 5/24/19. From your early arrival to your late departure you worked your tail off to deliver a hands off and worry free performance topped off with a great bar and delicious food and desserts. I received so many compliments about the catering but the desserts were a standout. And without feeling like I was being upsold you promised the desserts would be a hit and you were right. Your recommendations were spot on and your execution was flawless. Thanks for resolving the mistake by the vendor and thanks for being the rock star of the evening. You helped me make my special event that much more special and my guests will be talking about it for years to come. 50 guests in a room not necessarily made for a party was transformed into one of the best ever. Thank you thank you so much for your hard work, your dedication to your craft, your delicious food and your out-of-this world desserts. Your special touch will always be remembered."

"Aside from the food being wonderful, the team was such a joy to work with."
"Marylyn and her team catered a 50th birthday party that I hosted in a small art gallery with not a lot of space to work. They arrived right on time, and upon seeing the awkwardly shaped space where they would have to work their magic, they said not to worry and that they would figure it out so that I could focus on the guests. And they did! It was a great party and the guests were so impressed with the professional service and the delicious food. Thank you Marylyn and Just Hors D'Oeuvres!"

"From my first talk with Marylyn to last night when they left my house spotless, the whole experience with Marylyn and her staff was fantastic."
"I had never hired a caterer for a party before, and I can't tell you how easy Marylyn made everything - to begin with, she had great recommendations for the menu, and really took care of everything, including arranging a last-minute request for a tent for the event! The day of the party she and her staff went above and beyond to make sure every detail of the party would go smoothly! My guests all commented about the WONDERFUL food and the friendly (and helpful!) bartender. You gave us a night to remember - thank you!"

"Several words that come to mind when I think of the quality of service as well as the food you provided for my husband's 50th birthday party this past weekend: outstanding, excellent, amazing, incredible, and above-all-others to name a few."
"From the moment we expressed interest in hiring you again (you did an amazing job for my 50th birthday party 2 years ago), you were very on top of every single detail for this party as well. You were kind, thoughtful, generous and extremely detail oriented in every aspect of the event from the planning stages to execution. You also nudged me along when I needed that little push to make certain decisions within a specified time frame, and I greatly appreciate it. And the food!!!! Oh, my gosh, the FOOD! The food is amazing and is some of the best we've ever had! Not only was everything super tasty, but the way you presented it was beautiful. And your staff!!! Very friendly, helpful, courteous and respectful. I received SO many compliments from the guests about the whole catering experience (outstanding food, friendly staff, great drinks), all of it! You are the sharpest caterer I've ever met, and I would highly recommend you to anyone!!"

"We wanted to do something very special to celebrate Dad’s 90th birthday. We were so very fortunate to find Marylyn and JHD—she and her staff did an absolutely awesome job from start to finish!"
"All of the food was over the top delicious and we had quite a variety of appetizers and main dishes. The service was equally outstanding. It was like magic coming out of the small kitchen area into the large party room for over 70 people. We all marveled at how professional, efficient and delightful Marylyn and each and every one of her staff were! Compliments and rave reviews (top notch, upscale, best ever, unbelievable, you guys know how to throw a party!) from family and friends are all we are hearing—along with requests for this caterer’s number. When you hug your caterer and servers at the end of the event, you know they did everything right!!! Kudos and thanks to Marylyn and JHD!"

"Get ready for a customized gourmet dining experience, opulent service and all the finer details which goes along with it — without breaking the bank."
"Marylyn was simply phenomenal in every aspect of catering for my husband's 50th birthday celebration. She listened keenly to understand my husband's vision then collaborated to create a plan that was perfectly suited for a "Vintage Classic 50th Birthday" theme within our budget. Everyone continues to rave about the hors d'oeuvres, main courses, desserts and drinks. The menu satisfied from the traditional to the more adventurous pallets of our guests. The staff was professional, extremely observant and proactively paid attention to the guests to ensure they were happy. The food and service truly defined the experience for this event. Equally important, she was extremely responsive, flexible and expressed a personal interest in our needs throughout the entire process. She left no concerns unaddressed and no questions unanswered. We were very relaxed, abled to spend time with our guests and enjoyed the celebration without lifting a finger. We highly recommend Marylyn for personal or corporate events."

"I cant wait until I hire you next time!"
"I was a little nervous hiring Marylyn for my wife's 50th birthday party, as I had never met her. The pre-party planning was simple, and Marylyn gave me ample food choices and walked me through the whole process. She was very responsive returning emails and answering any question I had. When she walked into my kitchen, I knew I was all set. We had 70 guests, an hour and a half of cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a full salmon and beef dinner followed by dessert. She supplied everything and never asked for anything allowing us to enjoy our guests and the party. The food was amazing with 5 different served hors d'oeuvres and dinner. Dinner was served hot and the presentation to the guests was first class. The staff was so friendly and attentive and worked to make every guest happy. The bar staff was equally great and at the end of the night, they cleaned everything. Thank you, Marylyn!"
