"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 Juste Hors D'Oeuvres team: Marylyn, Janeisa and Manny were fantastic!"
"I really enjoyed working with Marylyn on the menu, and found her to be really cooperative and creative. The food was excellent, and their was plenty of it! What made them really exceptional was their warmth, consideration and attentiveness. They made the event so enjoyable, and everyone went home with doggie bags!"
Julia Ritchie | Hudson, NY
"Do not hesitate to book Juste Hors D’Oeuvres for your next event!"
"Last minute, I agreed to host my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday party. After a simple Google search, I found Juste Hors D’Oeuvres. Marylyn was a pleasure to work with and incredibly accommodating given the tight timeline. The evening was wonderful! Everyone enjoyed the food and service immensely. We cannot say enough positive things about Marylyn and Juste Hors D’Oeuvres!"

"Many of our guests requested one of your business cards."
"Thanks again, Marylyn, for all of your hard work! Our guests can’t stop talking about the food you prepared for Saturday (birthday celebration.) Excellent job!"
Bobbie Dunne and Lisa Seto | Staten Island, NY
"Five stars all the way!"
"Dear Marylyn: Everyone enjoyed the food and your service. Thanks for making the “95th” birthday party a success!"

"My son said repeatedly that his birthday party was epic."
"Dear Marylyn, we were having serious trouble finding local caterers for a small party in upstate NY. Some had no websites or terrible ones that told you nothing. Some had no references and some had weird menu propositions. When my wife got off the phone with Marylyn, she announced that we’d finally found the caterer we’d been looking for! Marylyn was very professional. Her menu suggestions for the party were spot on. Oh, and she had an actual, useful, easy to navigate website! On the day of the event, Marylyn and partner arrived on time and got right to work. They did a great job of not only preparing the food but serving it to the guests so that no one was left out. All the appetizers were delicious, though I found myself drawn to the stuffed mushrooms with the bacon wrapped dates coming in a close second (because bacon makes everything awesome!) Lunch offerings included: Three-Cheese Orzo and Artichoke Salad; Shrimp, Tomato and Avocado Salad; Baby Greens Salad; Seasonal Fruit platter and of course burgers and hot dogs for the kids. The salads were fantastic. There was more than enough food; and we enjoyed the leftovers! Before they left, they cleaned out the kitchen to the point that it was as if they’d never been there. Several guests commented on the food quality and presentation. And most important: my wife was actually able to relax and enjoy throwing a party. We would definitely use Juste Hors D’Oeuvres again."

"Marylyn and Just Hors D’Oeuvres is the best catering business hands down."
"We recently had a birthday party at our home for my husband and from the very beginning Marylyn was responsive and accommodating. She was great at reminding me of deadlines and getting me information; while answering all of my questions. She was also very flexible when a dietary change brought about a change to the menu. Her work at the party itself was nothing short of impressive. The food was divine (I’m still dreaming about the bacon wrapped dates with Manchego -yum.) Service was impeccable, and she left our home spotless. Many guests raved about the food and the service. We will absolutely be working with Marylyn and her team again. Why go anywhere else?"
Lisa and Elwyn Hutter | Armonk, NY
"I personally found the whole experience of working with you outstanding."
"Dear Marylyn, thank you for the amazing and extraordinary job last night. All of my guests have called today to compliment me on the quality and taste of the food and the impeccable organization and presentation. From the first phone call we had to the moment you left my apartment, I felt that I was in the right hands. Your choice of meals, support and the delicious cake make me want to plan another event with you again. Thanks so much for everything and especially for the care and collaborative spirit you had with me. Best always,"
Carlos Arana | New York City, NY
"The serving and care shown to the guests was very professional and added greatly to the occasion."
"I was very pleased with your catering to celebrate my birthday. You were very responsive to my tastes and it was all delicious!"

"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!"
Julien Boulenger | New York City, NY
"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!"
