  • Wedding: June 2009

I haven’t had my wedding yet and it’s not at Marros, but I did hire Jean-Jacques’ as my caterer for a wedding at the Scarsdale Women’s Club in June 2009. I went to one of their tastings, and the food was fabulous and the service was excellent. My mom went to see a wedding they’d set up and she was impressed. (she’s also been to a lot of non-wedding events catered by them and she says they’re always good.)

Also, they quickly repsond and are very professional when I have any questions, so i feel very comfortable in their hands. I hope that’s helpful.

Jean-Jaques is a great caterer. I attended a wedding they catered at Putnam Golf Club and the food was really yummy! The girls on the HV knot boards also rave about them. You might want to post there b/c I know a few of them are currently using JJ. HTH!

I am a wedding planner and floral designer by trade and we did the flowers and day of coordination for a wedding that took place at Marros in May.  Mary from Jean-Jacques was available every time I called and makes the client feel at ease every step of the way.  The food was wonderful and the kitchen worked very efficiently to get their food out on time to keep the flow of the event going.  It’s a beautiful place for pictures with all the stone work, arch ways, and the sunken garden area.  I attached a photo of the inside ballroom (photo courtesy of http://www.melindathao.com, design by http://www.engagingflorals.com, planning by http://www.nyengagements.com).

The Marros is where we had our reception. And it can be a nice location if you are prepared to spend money to make the place look a lot better. For example, you def need to get chairs especially for cocktail hour, fabric to cover the stage, lighting, etc. We actually spent time cleaning the cocktail hour area ourselves the Thursday before our wedding when no one was around because no one would do it for us and it was that bad. Its unfortunate because the location has so much potential but they dont take care of it. In the end, I must say that cocktail hour turned out great but dinner was a different story. Dinner came out late and was cold, pastries were placed on the table too late out and our favors were not passed out at all.
We had 350 people and they were just unable to service that many people.
I would really only recommend this place if you are having a smaller wedding, they give you a deal that you cannot pass up, and you have extra money to “fix” the place up and pay out of pocket.

@june5472:

@kandm2010:I just recently had my wedding at Marros. There were certainly pros and cons to workign with Jean Jacques. They were very attentive in the beginning, but after they had our money, they were more interested in making new sales. Marros is a beautiful location and the food is fabulous. However, we had a Plan A and Plan B for our ceremony and less than an hour before our ceremony, they wanted to move us to a less desirable location. They also promised that they would provide two of our guests with special plates of food due to dietary restrictions, and they never did. If you are willing to deal with some snobby attitudes and be on top of the staff, then it is worth it for the nice venue and good food.
