"She (Marylyn) is one of the most organized women I have ever met."
"On October 17, 2020 Marylyn and the Juste D’Oeuvres team Catered our daughter’s Wedding. This was a most stressful time for us. Due to Covid and things changing weekly, we went from a venue with 278 guests to 70 guests in our backyard. From our first phone call with Marylyn, she put us at ease. She was so informative, compassionate, understanding and very detailed. The Wedding Day was perfect! Marylyn and her team of Chefs, Waitstaff and Bartenders were all so nice and attentive to all our guests. They were all so professional. My home was left in perfect condition. The FOOD! From the Appetizers, Salad and Pasta course to the Main Entrée which was Orange Glazed Salmon and Beef with a red wine reduction, everything tasted amazing. It was so great to see Marylyn’s attention to detail, from the appetizers to the plates that came out for dinner It all looked so pretty. Everything came out with a small bundle of Autumn flowers, just perfect! We look forward to working with Marylyn for our next daughter's wedding!"

"From first contact, Marylyn personally called me to understand our needs. Throughout planning she was considerate to our whole day and what would work best and communicated and discussed each option with us. The quality of the catering was first class. Without a second thought, I would go to Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for all our events."

"10 out of 10! We cannot recommend Marylyn and JHD highly enough."
"We’re a 2020 couple that had to pivot our wedding 3 times. Marylyn was accommodating to our changes (reduced guest count and venue change to a backyard) and delivered in a huge way on wedding day. The guests did not stop talking about the food. The presentation of every hors d'oeuvre, main dish, dessert and drink was stunning and everything tasted amazing. Family and friends kept saying it was gourmet and the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Personally, we highly recommend the bacon wrapped dates, turkey meatballs and brisket! Beyond the food, we can’t forget to mention the staff – Marylyn, Manny and the full team were the kindest and most helpful people to work with, constantly checking in on us throughout the event to ensure we were happy. This crew added so much joy to our day! If you want a smaller, high-end shop, a real personal touch and outstanding food, go with JHD."

"Marylyn and her team far exceeded our expectations. From the first call, Marylyn insisted I (the bride) be involved even though it was my mom who reached out."
"She (Marylyn) wanted to fully understand my vision and objective and make sure nothing got lost in translation. Marylyn went above and beyond to help me plan the meal and organize the rental equipment necessary to make the event a special day. It is important to note that we had never seen the space and planned this event solely off pictures on VRBO. Only someone with her experience and expertise could have executed an event so perfectly just off a photo. There was a lot of following up, re-confirms, and check-ins to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. And it was. It was absolutely perfect. The food they prepared for the wedding was amazing - multiple guests commented that it was the best cooked steak they ever had at a wedding. 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. Thank you for a memorable day!"

"The entire team went above and beyond. They were all so polite, kind and accommodating!"
"We recently used Juste Hors D’Oeuvres for our wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier! The wedding was in the middle of the woods, no electric or water and Marylyn knew exactly what was needed. She wasn’t just our caterer; she was essentially our wedding manager when it came to ordering everything we needed for the reception. Marylyn’s personality, professionalism and responsiveness made me feel at ease. I wasn’t stressed one bit. I put all my faith and trust in Marylyn and her team, and they did not disappoint. I’m so happy I found Juste Hors D’Oeuvres!! At the tasting we met the Chef Manny. He was wonderful and talented. All of the food we tried during the tasting and then at our wedding was EXCEPTIONAL! My husband is a foodie, as are many of our friends and family. Everyone is still raving about the food Manny, Marylyn and the team made for us. The quality of the food was top notch. If you want true good food and a memorable meal, I would HIGHLY recommend Juste Hors D’Oeuvres. Everything was amazing! I would recommend hiring them for any event! Thank you all so much for making our wedding perfect. If there is ever another event anyone in our family needs catered, you will be the company we use!"

"Working with Marylyn was an absolute joy! She accommodated us on short notice for a last minute Covid friendly wedding! Everything was individually prepared while still looking absolutely beautiful. Our two picky families loved the food and Marylyn was so thoughtful by putting some aside for us as we were taking pictures while people ate. Everything was professional and we are highly impressed and would not only work with Juste Hors D'Oeuvres and Much More again, but would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!"

"Marylyn and her staff truly went above and beyond to accommodate us on our day!"
"Any questions we had, or unexpected surprises (as there always are), or last minute changes, were handled with grace and ease by Marylyn and her entire time leading up to our day. She replied to emails and phone calls promptly and settled my irrational fears. She helped design our menu, and even though she was not there on our day, her staff made sure everything was taken care of. Our outdoor wedding turned into a mud bath with heavy rain and her staff were very professional and helped us even set up for that day, something they did not have to do, but still did without asking and with smiles. We received many compliments from our guests about the bartender, Frank, and kind staff. Through the whole night the only thing that was forgotten were small water bottles for the tables, but once realized, it was handled with absolutely no problem. I would definitely recommend (for the comfort of nerves and delicious food) Marylyn and her entire staff at Juste Hors D'oeuvres. If we have another event, we will definitely contact them!"

"Thank you so much for everything you did."
"You really did go above and beyond what you had to. I know we did not have the easiest family to please. Thank you for putting up with them. The staff and bartenders were wonderful!"
Margaret O'Connell and Robert Barclay | Somers, NY
"Marylyn was amazing! So incredibly helpful throughout the entire experience."
"From our first call, Marylyn, walked us through ways to have amazing upscale dishes within our budget. She even helped us arrange all of our other rental needs unrelated to the food. I had overlooked a few things day of and realized hours before the ceremony began. Before I even knew it, I had delivery trucks in my driveway and everything had been taken care of! The staff was incredible, passed apps came out tray after tray and no one had to search for their favorite dish. All tables and tops were kept clean of used dishes and glasses. The bartenders were the life of the party. Kept everyone up in spirits having a great time. The chefs were crazy fun to be around and put out incredible food! We couldn't be happier with the food and service provided, and our wedding couldn't have been such an amazing success without Marylyn or her incredible team!"
Kelsey and David Greer | Wallingford, CT
"From the minute we spoke to Marylyn when searching for a caterer for our wedding we felt comforted and listened to."
"Marylyn was willing to work around our small budget and still provide us with a delicious meal that many of our guests raved about. The baker they work with was equally as delicious and there were no cannolis that went uneaten. She was responsive and worked with some limitations with our event kitchen space as well. The staff was amazing really amazing and took care of communicating with friends and family to make special plates for us and for others who needed to take them home (because they were such generous portions)! They were all very kind and helped tremendously with the cleanup of the event space. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to have worked with Juste Hors D'Oeuvres and to have had a most beautiful and magical wedding day."

"Everyone, all 82 of us, at our Renewal of Vows on November 24 were ecstatic about the event, especially Juste Hors D'Oeuvres catering."
"The food, from appetizers to dessert, was wonderful! Furthermore, your staff was omnipresent, sociable but never intrusive. Also, the staff from the church praised your people for their professionalism and good nature. Your organizing skills allowed Betty and me to enjoy our friends without interruption. Thank you!"

"Economical meets Luxury with Juste Hor Douerves!"
"Chef Marylyn pays close attention to every possible detail! Our post wedding celebration was beautiful and delicious! Marylyn was able to accommodate our special-needs son and several of his special-needs friends with an entire gluten free menu. Marylyn doesn't believe in "I can't." She will make anything happen for your event!! SPECIAL-NEEDS FRIENDLY, SPECIAL-NEEDS MOMS AND DADS!!!"
Michelle Kaplan and Karen Widdows | Bridgeport, CT
