Everything that Jens at Jean Jacques promised he delivered and more! He is a pleasure to deal with, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to make things the way you want them to be. It was my son's wedding and he and my daughter in law worked closely with Jens planning the food. The tasting we all attended and the food was really quite delicious. At that time Jens told us the food would be just as delicious - it was - and that there would be plenty of it - yes again - and that his serving crew and Maitre D would be very attentive - and they were!!! We were thrilled and our guests loved all of it. Jean Jacques is a real gem of a find for catering an event!!!!

My husband and I were married in March 2016 at Scarsdale Woman’s Club. From our initial phone conversations and meetings with Mary Scelsi, we couldn’t have felt that we were in better hands. Now where do I start?! Plain and simple – Mary and her daughter, Donna Sullivan, are class acts. From the get-go, Mary was professional, candid, and extremely helpful. My husband and I had specific ideas in mind in terms of reception format, food preferences, and aesthetics, and Mary helped us achieve what we were looking for. We strayed away from a typical wedding menu, and Mary and her team planned and executed an amazing menu that was tasty and different. We felt like Mary and Donna really took care of us in the months leading up to our big day, which is so important when planning a wedding. We enjoyed our ceremony and reception and, thanks to Mary and Donna, we didn’t have to worry about a thing! Meticulous attention to detail, professional, extremely pleasant, responsive. 10/10 would recommend. A+++ Can’t wait to work with them again.

Jens is ABSOLUTELY amazing. From the start, he was incredibly responsive and just wonderful to work with. He was always eager to help and go above and beyond --plus, it didn't hurt that he's good looking and charming, putting smiles on the faces of MOB's everywhere.

Some important points I would make though:
1. MOST IMPORTANT: no matter what, HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER. If you want to be assured that everything will run smoothly and like a tight ship, do not believe for one second that his wedding coordinator, Donna, can handle it all. She's a lovely woman but it was far too much for her to handle--there were *so many* hiccups that by the end of the night, it was laughable (it literally has become a running joke among my friends when we talk about my wedding). The most frustrating was that several of the hiccups which were not obviously her fault, she just blamed on her staff--if you can't flawlessly control & coordinate your own staff after who-knows-how-many-events...There are so many components to a wedding, it's just so hard to have everything run smoothly. Trust me when I say a wedding planner is absolutely necessary; it will put you at ease to have someone overseeing it all so you don't have to sweat it yourself on your wedding day. I stupidly did not hire my decorator for wedding planning and still regret it.
2. My tasting was not a great indication of his abilities, in a good way. My foodie family and I were not wow'ed at the tasting and meanwhile, when it came time for my actual wedding, the food was amazing. So ladies, even if the tasting doesn't blow your socks off, stick with him. I promise you will not be disappointed by the quality of the food.
3. FOR MY JEWS: Jens will not think to tell you this but you MUST bring in your own challah. I was not aware of this but thank god I happened to read a review weeks before my wedding that told me this. Additionally, make sure you have a napkin brought up if you're planning on breaking the glass!

Jean-Jacques catered my wedding and everything was amazing. Jens made the planning so much easier as he helped me with planning a menu, finding rentals and setting things up on the day of. The food was amazing and we are STILL getting compliments on it. Also, the wait staff and bartenders were incredibly attentive, professional and personable. They acted like we were regulars at their own restaurant! I cannot say enough good things about Jean-Jacques and their staff-- I highly recommend them to anyone!

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.

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.
