"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!"

"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!"
Bob and Betty Nuxoll | Manhasset, NY
"Juste Hors D’Oeuvres was fantastic!"
"We worked with Marylyn, remotely, and everything came together so well. The food was delicious, people cannot stop talking about the swordfish. The staff was so kind and efficient, we can’t recommend them enough. Thank you for making our special event so special!"

"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
"I (also) really appreciated Marylyn's help in planning the details of the event!"
"I am so grateful to Marylyn and her entire team: chefs and staff. The food for our wedding was outstanding and the kind service and attention to detail is so appreciated and helped make for a wonderful event! Everyone enjoyed the delicious food."

"How do I even put into words how wonderful Marylyn and her entire team were?"
"From the minute I began talking to Marylyn she was more than supportive of our vision as well as our budget and worked relentlessly in helping us achieve everything we could have possibly wanted. We worked together for over a year putting together the most incredible menu that my guests can't stop raving about. The passed hors d'oeuvres were UNBELIEVABLE. I can't even put into words, the lamb meatballs...I scoffed down 5 in a row! Marylyn ensured both myself and my husband were well fed throughout the entire night by bringing us plates and checking in periodically throughout the night. The entire team were so organized, polite and efficient - we really hit the jackpot with each and every one of them! We do not have one complaint about the service, or the food - we were simply blown away by it all. I could not recommend Juste Hors D'Oeuvres more!"
Courtney and Michael Swenson | Shelter Island, NY
"Marylyn and her crew at Juste Hors D'Oeuvres and Much More were terrific - I recommend them highly!"
"Our daughter's wedding was July 6th; Marylyn's communication was friendly and informative from the start. She followed through and followed-up. With planning from a distance and the bride and groom out of state, we could not schedule our "tasting" as early as I would have liked. Marylyn was reassuring and her policies fair. She was sensitive to the needs of our guests; e.g., made a great gluten free egg roll stuffed with avocado and tangy sauce. Guests especially enjoyed Marylyn's Salmon preparation and the Mole Poblano Chicken. It was a pleasure to work with an experienced professional who took a personal interest in making our family celebration memorable and delicious!"
Susan Bundy-Myrow (Mother of the Bride) | Manhasset, NY
"Marylyn's team did a fantastic job on our wedding day."
"Marylyn's team did a fantastic job on our wedding day. What I liked most was their professionalism and great attitude. The food was delicious as well. They left the tables and kitchen absolutely spotless."
Gail and Jony Dutan | Carmel, NY
"Marylyn was an absolute miracle in helping us sort through the hurdles of planning our wedding! She went well beyond what I expected of a catering service to ensure we had everything we needed."
"We got married on the first Saturday of fall and so Marylyn and her team had a busy weekend, so she had Neal, her partner take care of our party. While I'm disappointed I didn't get to actually meet Marylyn and give her an enormous, grateful hug, Neal was patient and thorough, and did a fantastic job. We had just been through hurricane Irma in Florida, so our plans and setup were chaotic/last-minute, but Neal and his team at the venue did a wonderful job catering to our late adjustments. EVERYONE came up to our table to tell us the menu options and food was fantastic. Marylyn, along with my (the bride's), experience in food service, helped us create an unusual menu of delicious selections. The cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were excellent! We highly recommend the lamb chops with mint sauce, everybody went crazy on those! We had a lovely cookie bar next to our cake and the cookies were excellent as well. All in all, our wedding was a complete success and everyone had a great time. We're so happy we found Juste Hors D'oeuvres and we're over the moon about our special day being perfect and quirky like us. Thank you Marylyn, Neal, her team of caterers, her rental partner William and everyone who helped make our day so special. We are eternally grateful!"

"From the start, the experience was superb. Your guiding us through the selections of hors d’oeuvres and dinner options was so much fun…and the guests are still talking about that gorgeous, delicious cake!"
"Dear Marylyn, where to begin? You have two men who are great cooks, who love to entertain, who also happen to be getting married. Naturally our first thought was, “We’ll do it all!” When sanity finally set in, it was clear that in order for us to enjoy the wedding, we had to put someone else in charge. We had two false starts with other caterers and then found you! The food was delicious and the presentation was flawless. How you managed in such a small space is beyond us. As you know, Steph is a minister who has performed countless weddings… Only once has he experienced catering on the level of yours. He has NEVER seen a wedding cake devoured at a ceremony as was ours! Even the guests commented on the way you managed the whole day with grace and perfection!"
Steph Heilakka and Jeff Brown (From Penn Park, PA) | Married in Hastings-On-Hudson, NY
"The second most frequent question people asked me after inquiring, 'How’s life as a married person?' was ‘Who was that caterer and how did you find them?'"
"Dear Marylyn, I just wanted to send a note of thanks for your spectacular staff and service. It was a matter of chance that I stumbled upon your website while looking for a caterer that specialized in hors d’oeuvres for our wedding blessing ceremony in May. I wanted to do something a little different and extra special for our special day and lo and behold, I ended up on your website! I usually prefer to hire by word of mouth, but the testimonies on your site were convincing enough for me to reach out to you. After speaking with you and hearing about your business and how you ended up in this career, I could tell I was going to like you. My instinct was correct! On the day of our ceremony, you and your staff were on the scene and hustling even before I got there. When I arrived, everyone was smiling and cheerful but continuously on the move. The food was displayed so beautifully, I almost hated to see it get eaten, but it did! Thank you again, Marylyn and staff! We loved you, your service, and your food! You definitely will be hearing from us again for future events, and I venture to say you will be hearing from many of our guests as well. Very Best Regards,"
