"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!!"

"The best catering experience ever!"
"This team provided a custom made traditional West African meal for my father's surprise 70th birthday party. Everyone raved about the food and the excellent service. People continued to ask about where I found them well into the next day. Sensing my nervousness, the entire team made it a seamless process for me upon arrival. I was provided with full catering as well as bartending service. They are definitely a group I'll use again for my upcoming 35th birthday party this summer. I cannot thank them enough for a wonderful event!"

"Once again, you and your partner did an incredible job catering our party."
"The food was amazing and our family did not stop raving about everything! Not only did we all love the food, but we all love you, too! I know you had a rough start to the day with the snow storm and then going to the wrong building, but you remained unflappable and still managed to do an unbelievable job. We appreciate it so much and really can't thank you enough for making our daughter's 1st birthday party so special.
Thanks again for all that you did for us today. We couldn't be happier with the turnout and loved having you with us. We hope to see you again real soon!
And PS... If you ever decide to branch out and give cooking lessons, I'll be the first to sign up!! :)"

"Marylyn took my ideas, made several recommendations, and we were off!"
"Working with JHD was easy! Marylyn immediately "got it" when I described my vision for my dad's 70th birthday. We had never used JHD before and didn't really know what to expect, but the morning of the event, Neil arrived on time (actually a few minutes early) which we really appreciated. All my guests loved the food. The presentation was perfect! Neal was friendly, helpful and my kitchen was left in tip-top shape when he left. We can't say enough nice things about the wonderful job JHD did for us! Thank you!"

"The first time I was able to eat at my own event; and believe me the food was amazing....10 Stars."
"I am the founder of internet based company with over 19 years of blood, sweat and tears called www.PetCareRx.com. I have worked on many deals and partnerships with some of the BEST. I can say Juste Hors D'Oeuvres was the best group of people I have ever come across with a proven method for keeping a event stress free and allowing the host to actually enjoy a party.
Planning any event is stressful. Having the level of expertise on your side makes all the difference in having a night go so well that people do not want to leave.
Each and every detail was thought through and executed to perfection. Question that I have to anyone reading this, is why are you still reading???. You do not get a 2nd chance to plan an event. DO NOT RISK hiring a mistake. You can rest assured you will have a amazing event with Juste Hors D'Oeuvres. 10 Stars!"
Blake Bronson | Long Island City, NY
"I (also) wanted an event a bit more elegant than our annual family barbecue..."
"Dear Marylyn: I wanted to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday in my backyard, poolside, without having to think about and prepare for 45 adults and 10 children. These goals were achieved, and all I had to do was play hostess, which is in and of itself exhausting. Marylyn and her crew were prompt, organized and very helpful in every way. The food was delicious, and many had more than one helping! I would definitely recommend this caterer to anyone interested!!!"

"Marylyn Schwartz, the owner is easy to work with."
"Marylyn has a very pleasant, warm, but businesslike attitude so I felt that I was in capable hands. Many guests remarked that the food was delicious! 2 hits were the flatbreads with arugula, blue cheese and more and the key lime mousse. Both looked and tasted great!"
Susan Wholin | NYC
"We want to thank you for the excellent catering this weekend- everything went beautifully and we were very pleased with both the service and the wonderful food!"
"Dear Marylyn and Pam, our guests unanimously enjoyed the hors d’oeuvres as well as the main courses, and commented on the high quality. Marylyn is a genuine and friendly person and definitely knows her industry. Her advice and suggestions made our event even better. She communicated with us very well from the start and worked with our personal needs and desires (including budget) to create the perfect menu. It was delightful to have a totally stress-free and smooth-running event for our celebration. I also wanted to mention and thank the bartender, recommended by Marylyn, who was friendly and professional. Again, thank you for everything. We were very pleased that we chose your services for our event."
