"Marylyn was a delight to work with - very easy process to handle the various choices, 2 phone calls and a few emails, and all was set."
"My wife had a large international conference in her field here in New York and we decided to invite some of her working colleagues for an evening with wine and some Hors D'Oeuvres. As our upper west side apartment is rather small therefore we actually needed to have 2 consecutive evenings for this catering.
Chef Blythe and Lisa were absolute delights. They arrived punctually both nights and brought all needed things with them - including the nice variety of food menu items we had selected. They worked in the kitchen (some of the items were warm items) and made sure that we could focus on the guests (and wine pouring :). They also got special recognition from the highly international group of guests for their great preparation of food. I also appreciate the way all was cleaned afterward and the efficient way of collecting all the necessary things they brought. Being already tired late in the evening, this was very much appreciated. Hint: The lamb and the zucchini fritters got special recognition (the latter including me :). Overall a great experience. Thank you all!"

"Hi Marylyn! Thank you again so much for catering our daughter’s 1st Communion last weekend on such short notice. It was fabulous!! The food was delicious and we feasted on the leftovers for days after. My dad is still raving about the mac-and-cheese muffins! I also can’t thank you enough for the meticulous clean up. I am usually the one up till midnight cleaning all the dishes after everyone has gone home. This time, I sat with a glass of wine and some leftovers and relaxed. We will be calling you again soon!!!"

"I can’t thank you enough for your sales-womanship, effective communication and follow through with the catering of our event."
"Dear Marylyn and Team, I can’t thank you enough for your sales-womanship, effective communication and follow through with the catering of our event. You worked hard to determine what our needs were and sought to meet our budget as well as our taste buds. We were very satisfied with the variety of sandwiches and salads that you made for us; delivery and set-up were done in a friendly, efficient manner. I couldn’t get over the freshness of the food. From the fruit salad to the artisan rolls to the delicious tarragon chicken salad to the mozzarella, pesto tomato finger sandwiches (everyone’s favorite,) we were impressed with the flavor of your culinary creations. We also appreciated your making of vegan sandwiches for our guests with special dietary needs. Thank you for all that you did for us; you helped make our two events a success. More importantly, you helped make our staff feel appreciated and pampered! We’ll be talking to you in the future for other events that come our way! Best always,"

"You never let us down!"
"Hi Marylyn, Just wanted to thank you again for the amazing food & display you created for our party. The food was to die for, especially the beef tenderloin and ribs. My bosses, who dine at some of the best places regularly, enjoyed this more than most restaurants. You never let us down! Looking forward to working with you all again soon. Thank you!"

"Marylyn of Juste Hors D'Oeuvres was very professional and communicated regularly up to the day of the event."
"Marylyn's expertise and advice helped put me at ease with all of the details for the event. The staff were pleasant and professional, and the food was amazing and well received by the guests. I am planning another event and expect to use Juste Hors D'Oeuvres again!"
Joe Megie, COPE Health Solutions | New York, NY
"I was a little scared to hire someone that I found online and with whom I had no prior experience or for whom I had no personal reference."
"I was seeking someone who could provide a classy, yet substantial food and beverage service to a 100+ event for a professional association. We had a tight budget and limited time to plan. After speaking with Marylyn, all of my fears were assuaged, and after the event, I was so so pleased with her performance. She delivered a very classy event serving passed appetizers and a food station, in addition to wine and beer. It was so nice to be able to let someone else worry about all of the details so that I could focus on our event. Marylyn really took care of everything and served up a wonderful event that attendees are still raving about two weeks later!"
