  • Wow! Chef Marylyn and Chef Manny far exceeded our expectations. The food they prepared for my dad's 90th birthday party was sensational. Chef Marylyn went above and beyond to help me plan the meal and organize the rental equipment necessary to make the event a special day. 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, large and small. Thank you Chef Marylyn and Chef Manny for a memorable day!

  • 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 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 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 ... Read more

  • We hired Marylynn and her team for my daughter's backyard engagement party. During COVID, everything takes on a different shape than you had imagined. Marylynn worked closely with us to make it happen and run smoothly and safely. Everything went well and the guests really liked the food. Perfect choices for 30-year-olds. Their favorites were the Mac n cheese, flatbread with porcini mushrooms/cheese, and the lobster brioche. Desserts were great too. Manny, our chef, was excellent and is very personable. Thanks for your service and advice along the way!

  • Marylyn called me personally within 30 mins of my placing the inquiry. She took the time to understand our needs, our likes and what would make our day special. The partnership throughout preparations was fantastic and on the day itself we had more compliments on the catering than anything else. we wouldn't hesitate to book with Marylyn and the team again.

  • Booked Marylyn and her team at Juste Hors D'Oeuvres for a work retreat dinner. The whole team was tired and traveled for the retreat and Marylyn pampered us! We would definitely work with Juste Hors D'Oeuvres again. We had an array of dietary restrictions to work with and we were all taken care of.

  • 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!

    Dear Jillian, I cannot thank you enough for such a lovely testimonial. It means the world for the entire team. We grow through the kind words of our clients!!!!

  • 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... Read more

  • 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 (for any size event), a real personal touch and outstanding food, go with JHD.

    That was the kindest and most generous review we could ever hope for. The team will be soooo very happy to read this. Love to you both!!!!

  • Marylyn and her staff were just amazing! They came into my home and took over the kitchen! I didn't have to lift a finger! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it! The salmon and dill sauce was amazing, the pork quesadillas were delicious! Ryan, the bartender, was great, made sure the glasses were full! The Sangria was delicious! I would recommend them highly!!

  • Marylyn and her team recently catered my party for about 100 guests. Everything was impeccable! The food was delicious and I heard many compliments from my guests during the event. Her staff was profissional and very friendly. Prior to the event, Marylyn was of indispensable help, helping me along the way as I had no clue what to do. I highly recommend Juste Hors D'Oeuvres.

    Thank you, Jean for the kind words! We loved working with all of you and helping to make your event a wonderful success!

  • Oh Marylyn. What would I have done without you? You are a wonder! I loved working with you. Enthusiastic energy, a keen sense of humor and fantastic organizational skills, you always gave me plenty of information so I could make the best decisions. And I haven’t yet mentioned the food! I got so many compliments from the first appetizers to the last luscious desserts. Everything was excellent. You delivered exactly what I requested during our first conversation; that I wanted my guests to have a first class experience. You and your wonderful staff delivered that and then some! Thank you so much.

  • We got married September 14th 2019 and Marilyn 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 Marilyn 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 was 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 th...

  • Love, love, love Juste Hors D'Oeuvres. We have used them before and Marylyn never disappoints. Marylyn just catered our backyard wedding. She more than catered it. She helped me plan it! I can't thank her enough. She gave me guidance all the way. Everything was perfect. The food was delicious. Our guest were raving about it. Her staff is friendly and professional. I wouldn't use anyone but Juste Hors D'Oeuv

  • Due to Covid, my husband and I had to replan our entire wedding and ended up having it in my parents backyard. I found Marylyn, who had amazing reviews, and was very enjoyable to speak with on the phone - so immediately we went with her. Communication was pretty good, in my opinion I’d prefer talking on the phone rather than emailing....but Marylyn always spoke with us on the phone when we requested. There was a little hiccup a couple days before the wedding, but nothing we weren’t able to solve on our own. Day of the wedding, Marylyn and her team arrived on time and ready to get going. Her staff was absolutely amazing. They set everything up in a limited amount of time and the outcome was absolutely stunning. Marylyn made sure my grandparents didn’t have to walk up to the buffet and also accommodated a super picky uncle with having a pizza delivered just for him. The hors d’oeuvres were great. The filet mignon was delicious and cooked perfectly. Unfortunately our pas... Read more

    Thank you for the very kind words. We very much appreciated working with and for you. I am sorry that due to covid we were not able to get the Champagne flutes delivered on time. Shipping delays are really an issue right now. Happily, that was the hiccup that was easily remedied by renting flutes. Really not sure about what you thought was different about the pasta? I am terribly confused. You selected Cemelli w/Ricotta and Mushrooms... That is exactly what was made. At the tasting I could not get the gemelli pasta so I used cavatappi. That may have been what looked different, but I assure you the menu was exactly the same. Wishing you both much love and happiness!
