Jean-Jacques catered my recent wedding on 4/26/15 at Temple Shaaray Tefila. I can't say enough good things about Jens (one of the owners), who we primarily worked with, and their team. Jens was very responsive during the planning process, and was extremely flexible with our request for a somewhat non-traditional reception style. We wanted to have a cocktail style event, which he happily and creatively accommodated. Many other caterers were very reluctant to do this. They are full service caterers and really take care of almost everything, from the food, bar, cake (included), and helped organize the entire event.
They food was EXCELLENT, and though we were limited because it was Kosher- style, none of our guests even noticed the absence of pork or shellfish! We got SO many compliments on the food. And the cake (chocolate with ganache frosting) was AMAZING! definitely the best wedding cake I've ever had.
The wait staff and bartenders were also excellent. After the ceremony, they took my husband and I to the bridal suite, where they had champagne and food waiting for us. Our waitress repeatedly made sure we were eating (we ate at our wedding!!), and continually refilled our drinks.
My only complaints/ suggestions would be that they don't seem very familiar with specific Jewish customs- i.e. we had to bring in our own Challah for the blessing, and they never served it!! Also, the Maitre D was not familiar with Jewish wedding ceremonies and tried to change the seating sides while the wedding party was rehearsing without me (bride's side/ bridesmaids on right, groomsmen on left, which is opposite of Christian tradition), which luckily I (and the Rabbi) knew was incorrect, and changed back to the correct format (phew!)
Therefore, if there are specific details that are very important to you, make sure to remind them a few times before the event, and if it's a Jewish event, be in control of the ceremony!
Overall, we were VERY happy and would use them again!!

We held our 140-person wedding ceremony and reception with Jean Jacques at Marros Estate and couldn’t be happier. Mary and Donna were helpful and professional from our first email contact all the way through the planning process and, most importantly, the day of the wedding. We did a food tasting a few months before the wedding and had some comments about the preparation of one dish – they listened to everything we said and the chef changed the preparation to our preferences. Everyone raved about the food! Jean Jacques staff made sure my new husband and I ate during cocktail /reception AND made sure we had a fresh drinks (or water!) in our hand all night. Donna handled the flow of the event the entire day so we didn’t need to worry about anything except enjoying the day. Jean Jacques makes you feel like part of their family and certainly knows how to host an unforgettable wedding.

The cake looked great and tasted great, and arrived on time with no issues (to a venue quite a ways away, too!). The tasting was amazing -- so many options were plated beautifully for us, and my mother was allowed to join on the spur of the moment, and everything tasted great. Jens, from the bakery, consulted with us on flavors and design and was both friendly and helpful, never trying to upsell us or in any way make us feel judged for our choices. Everyone there was so nice and talented (and not for nothing, they were also extremely kind and flexible when we were accidentally late... very late... on a payment). Thanks guys!

I came across Jean Jacques through a wedding site and read reviews similar to the ones you are reading. I was impressed by the reviews and clicked "Contact Vendor." The next day I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from Mary, the event coordinator. We scheduled a time to meet a few days later. I appreciated Mary's knowledge, professionalism, and expertise from the moment we met. She listened, offered suggestions, took notes, and was thorough. I left the meeting impressed and with Mary's words "I will take care of you" in the back of my mind. I was even more impressed a few days later when I received a hand-written thank you note for taking the time to meet with her.

The following factors were very important to us in choosing a caterer: all-inclusive, cost, quality of food, service, and professionalism. Jean Jacques exceed all of our expectations and more.

Looking back, Mary and her team stood by her words "I will take care of you." From the last minute decision to have a tent due to the rain, to arriving early the morning of the wedding to work through the new seating chart, they was there every step of the way. They accommodated our special request and were courteous to our vendors.

Being a perfectionist and a project manager by trade, at one point of the morning I let go of being attached to the wedding and the details. I was confident Mary and her team were going to take care of us and our guests. It was truly such a blessing to be a guest at our own wedding.

The service Mary, Donna, Vinny and their staff provided was second to none. We thank them for making our wedding celebration a dream come true.

When me and my fiance decided to get married, i couldn't think of anyone else except Jean-Jacques' to cater our wedding ! I have tasted their wonderful pastries and their food while attending different events at Bronxville Women's Club, and i loved it. We chose the charming Scarsdale Women's Club (also known as the Rowsley Cottage) as our wedding venue and we started working with Mary Scelsi. She was so professional and, most importantly, she understood exactly what we wanted and embraced our ideas adding a few of her own touches, that fit just perfectly ! We were really excited about the wedding cake and when we came to Jean-Jeacques' for a cake tasting, we fell in love with the two cakes that were offered to us and, unable to decide which one we wanted to have, we chose to combine the two flavors together. Many thanks to Jeannette Gabrillargues Chacho and the pastry chefs involved for designing the cake of our dreams ! When the big day came on August 10, 2013, everything went beautifully and it was everything we ever wanted ! We were calm, thanks to Mary Scelsi and our Maitre D' Donna Sullivan, who were so attentive and supportive, and everybody absolutely loved the food and the service ! We encourage anyone who is thinking of having a wedding or any kind of event to consider Jean-Jacques'. It's very hard to find something of this quality and finesse, and after tasting the food and the pastries and meeting the members of their team, you will surely be convinced ! Thank you Jean-Jacques' for making our dream come true ! We will be back for more.

My Husband and I got married at the Scarsdale Women's Club in Oct 2012. I can not say enough great things about Jean-Jacques' . The entire day was perfect!!! They were professional, detailed and completely accommodating from day one. They were always quick to respond with any questions we had along the way, and were prepared with suggestions, recomendations and even back up plans for our wedding ceremony and reception. They arranged for our guests to receive hot apple cider and sparkling water when they arrived on-site for our brisk fall outdoor ceremony, which everyone loved! When our flower girl had a meltdown 2 mins before she was supposed to walk down the aisle the Chef appeared from the kitchen with 2 mini hot dogs for her, to which my sister in-law said "this man is an angel!" Donna our Maitre D' was an absolute doll, she took such good care of us the entire time. My bridesmaids were saying how amazing they thought it was when she made me sit down and eat for a little during cocktail hour. Everyone is calling us to talk about how fantastic the food was. My boss told me and I quote "That soup was one of the best things I've ever eaten" (butternut squash with maple syrup) There is not a bad option on the menu! Everything ran so smoothly the entire day, we could not have been happier with the service! Thank you thank you thank you Jean-Jacques', Mary and Donna for being so wonderful the entire process and help us to have the most beautiful celebration at the startling of our journey as husband and wife.

We had our wedding at the Rowsley Estate in Scarsdale in September. Jean-Jacques was the caterer and the evening could not have been more perfect. Mary was our main contact leading up to the wedding and Donna was our Maitre D on the day of. They are both two of the most professional and kindest people you will ever work with. They took care of every detail and ensured all of our special requests were taken care of. The food was amazing from the appetizers to the main courses – we are still getting compliments!! The entire staff was always right there to take care of our guests’ needs and treated us like family. We look forward to working with Mary and her team in the future and highly recommend Jean-Jacques for your next event, you will not be disappointed!!

Jean Jacques catered our June 2012 wedding at a venue in Westchester and from day one we were completely confident in the team. We worked closely with Jens (who is a co-owner with his sister Jeanette) throughout the process. He made wonderful suggestions from food selections and cake design to rental needs and layout. We were so grateful to have him every step of the way to guide us to our perfect day. On the day of, our maitre'd was Jeannie and she was amazing. We met her at our tasting and specifically requested her. She kept things runninng smoothly and we were able to truly enjoy our event knowing it was in such capable hands. And last, but certainly not least, the food was fabulous. The presentation was beautiful and we heard rave reviews from our guests. The dinner portions were very large and they were accomodating to our guests' dietary needs. They offer a wonderful range of typical wedding foods as well as some very unique and delicious options. They also provide a full bar at a very reasonable cost (some other caterers I spoke to expected us to purchase and provide all of the liquor ourselves - an unwelcome responsibility for the bride and groom in my opinion). They work with another company for the cake and took care of the entire thing. Our cake was truly the most beautiful cake I've ever seen. I can't recommend the team at Jean Jacques enough. Send me a message if you want to discuss my experience, have any questions or would like to hear more about JJ.

Really wonderful vendor, very professional and flexible. They provided us with the venue for the reception and ceremony, and our wedding cake (cupcake). The space was absolutely lovely at the Rowsley Estate, and the food was great. Also had 2 free tastings, which was a plus! All in all, highly recommended despite a few minor things the day of our wedding, which took off 1/2 star from quality of service:

- Some books we had for display as centerpieces were set with titles upside down. I know they're for decorative purposes but details do matter at a wedding, and I feel that the staff should have been more attentive.
- They did not know/inform us there would be seat covers on ceremony chairs and thus the aisle decor we had (hanging mason jars) could not be used the day of.
- Our wedding was at the beginning of July, so it was really hot taking pictures outside. During the cocktail hour, we only saw the maître d' once and we were not able to eat anything as we were preoccupied with the photographer for the entire hour. We would've *really* appreciated if a plate of appetizers were left for us to try afterwards.

But as stated, we were very satisfied at the overall outcome and we loved the coziness and relaxed atmosphere. My husband and I knew we wanted a homey place, and Rowsley Estate really had that down with its location and decor.
