"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!!"

"The appetizers were amazing and the dinner delicious."
"JHD catered my husband's 80th Birthday celebration. The food was abundant, and I was grateful for the great clean up. Great Party!! A special thanks for showing up on the first snow storm of the year!!"

"Happy hosts and happy guests."
"Marylyn worked with me on the best menu choices. Chef Blythe and Lisa were professional, friendly and very organized. Most of all, the food was delicious and the service fabulous. Happy hosts and happy guests. 5 Star rating."

"The food was amazing: both great quality and quantity, and beautifully presented!"
"I ordered a selection of hors d’oeuvres from JHD for a reception that I organized to celebrate my birthday. I am delighted with my choice – and so were my guests! In addition, Marylyn provided me with sound advice in selecting the menu, and her husband Gene delivered the food to my place at a time that suited me best. Thank you so much!"

"The questions you asked and menu planned, truly reflected my husband’s style."
"Dear Marylyn, I wanted to thank you and your staff for pulling together a great 40th birthday party for my husband. Your attention to detail was impeccable, and the food was absolutely delicious. All my guests raved about your food. From the moment I called you, I felt comfortable with you as my caterer. I will definitely be using JHD in the future and will tell my friends and family!"

"What an awesome catering experience we had for my 50th Birthday party from Juste Hors D'Oeuvres!!!"
"The gourmet food, the superb staff and overall experience FAR exceeded our expectations! Neal was wonderful, and extremely gracious to all the guests, in particular my teenage son, who wants to be a chef someday. The guests LOVED the food!! And, a few have asked me for your number, so you can expect they will contact you. Dionis was a fantastic bartender. He was so well-prepared and thought of things I never would have (like pouring spouts for our liquor bottles,) and he did a great job with my specialty drink for the evening, the Pink Flirtini. He was super friendly with the guests. The server was sweet, professional and not intrusive or pushy with the guests. Neal and crew left the kitchen cleaner than when they arrived. They didn't have to interrupt me with any questions. They really just took over my kitchen in a good way, and I have zero complaints!! So, overall, we'd say: Food was fabulous! Staff was fabulous! Entire experience was fabulous!! And, out of 5 stars, we'd give you 5+ Stars, and we cannot wait to have you back again!!!"

"Everyone said great things about the food and your staff was delightful. We will certainly need you again."
"Hi Marylyn, I was so wrapped up in the guests at the party I don’t think I had the time to properly thank you or appreciate you’re tremendous effort. I just ate the left over spring rolls (perfect and love the sauce), mac and cheese (yum) and sliders (go chipotle mayo). I absolutely LOVED the lemon chicken last night, and I guess so did everyone else because that was gone!. Sooo delicious. I’m going to serve the left over pork tenderloin tomorrow for another family dinner and I’m bringing the grilled shrimp skewers tonight to another party so it’s all going to good use. Thanks so much for all your help. I think it was a huge success. My parents are still over the moon!"

"My 75th birthday was a glorious success because Juste Hors d’oeuvres catered an extravagantly delicious meal."
"Everything was perfect; the food, the presentation, the staff. My guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Not only did Juste Hors d’oeuvres talk me through the planning, they told me up front every detail I needed to know setting, my mind to rest. They could not have been more cooperative, helpful, and unfailingly pleasant. People continue to talk about the food. I made the right choice in choosing you! I cannot begin to say enough thank yous’. Next party, it’s you!"
Lois Bull | Easton, CT
“Two events back-to-back.”
“Hi Marilyn, Just want to let you know you hit another home run out of the field. After fabulously catering my daughter’s baby shower 2 weeks ago on June 30th, you did it again for my husband’s 70th birthday party last night (July 13th) with a little more than 2 weeks lead time. On both occasions my guests raved about the food and indulged themselves with gusto and pleasure. In addition your wait staff did an outstanding job of pulling the affair off effortlessly. (Last night that was a challenge, given that the party was under a tent and it did rain from time to time.) They certainly knew how to pace themselves and get the job done seamlessly. Thanks again for your excellent work.”

"Marylyn, I can't thank you enough for helping make my wife's birthday celebration so memorable."
"Rave reviews from everyone who attended not only for the outstanding menu that you created but also for the presentation and timing that you so thoughtfully planned. And to think I was stressed as a novice party planner! I am looking forward to the next party, Marylyn, especially the Salmon Puttanesca!"
Roman Gackowski | Midland Park, NJ
“I could not have asked for a more wonderful experience!”
“Just Hors D'Oeuvres catered my birthday party at an Art Studio in New Jersey. The food was absolutely delicious. The spread was tasty and well-prepared; each item plated and served with timeliness, and those attending us were funny and engaging, attentive and helpful. I could not have asked for a more wonderful experience!”
Allison Williams | NJ
“For an outdoor party that entertained 40 people of all age groups, the variety was excellent!”
“Hi Marylyn, Thank you so much for the beautiful 18th birthday party. From helping with every detail to the incredible food choices to the delicious appetizers and entrees, you made it so effortless! Everything was perfect, and every detail was attended to! Can’t wait to book Juste Hors D’Oeuvres for the next party!”
Katy, Victoria and Steve Lepeturin | Stamford, CT
"The food was fantastic and everything went perfectly."
"Hi Marylyn, Neal and Izzy were great. It was wonderful that I was able to enjoy my time with our guests instead of being stressed and tied up in the kitchen. From the hors d’oeuvres to the entrees to the desserts, the food and service was excellent. Thanks for making my husband’s surprise party a very memorable evening for us! Thanks again."
Ginette Van Waes | Bethel, CT
“I would highly recommend Marylyn for any size party and any event. She is awesome!!!”
“I recently had a small dinner party (at my home) to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday and Marylyn catered it for me. Not only was the food AMAZING – Marylyn was wonderful with working within my budget as well as handling food allergies, etc. Thank you!”
