I was impressed with Matts professional demeanor from the first time I spoke to him. We did not have a wedding planner for my daughters wedding, but Matt made it easy to navigate menus ,
rentals, and set up. The weeks before the wedding, I called and texted Matt often, with many questions and request. He was always prompted to answer.
On a meager wedding budget, Matt provided us with a delicious and tempting spread for cocktail hour as well as a gourmet vegetarian dinner. Even our guest commented on how appropriate the meal was for a warm summers evening.
I cannot begin to tell you how friendly and helpful the bar tender and serving staff was during the reception. Talk about service with a smile!

Putting it simply, choosing Zeffert and Gold as our wedding caterer was the best decision my husband and I made throughout our wedding planning process. The food was absolutely amazing--from the moment we left our original tasting, my husband and I were looking forward to getting to eat their food again at the wedding. Truly and amazing meal! Though we didn't have any particularly specific requests, they always made it very clear that they could cater specifically to our wants and needs. If there was something we were looking for, they could likely make it happen.
We worked directly with Matt Gold, and he was absolutely wonderful. At such a stressful time, he always made me feel confident that our wedding would come together perfectly. He's professional, responsive and truly a nice person to work with. At the wedding, he was incredibly attentive to us, making sure we always had everything we need, when we needed it. The servers and bartenders too were friendly and hard working.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Zeffert and Gold. They made our day incredibly special, and we loved working with them. If you are planning a wedding, you will be doing yourself a huge favor by looking into them!

Aaron, Iris, and Matt were all fantastic people to work with coordinating all the delicious food for our wedding. From start to finish, they made sure that every aspect of our day was set up and executed in a manner that we wanted. And the food --- oh all the food was delicious. They had the best value for the price that we paid. We HIGHLY recommend Zeffert and Gold Catering and Event Planning for any future brides and grooms.

Iris was a second mom in the whole wedding planning process. She asked all the right questions and helped us to arrive at our final decisions. And that's not even to mention that their food is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! I would highly recommend this catering company to ANYONE who is looking to plan an event. They are able to accommodate anything whether it's barbecue to fancy filet mignon and any and all allergies. We plan to use them in the future for any of our celebrations.

I thought the food was delicious and we got a ton of compliments on how great the food was. It was also beautifully presented. The service was amazing as well. Everyone there on the day of was friendly and helpful. They took care of everything and it all turned out so wonderfully. My husband and I felt very well taken care of as well. I got to try all the food that I wanted to and never lacked for a drink. It was such a pleasure to work with Matt starting from when we first contacted them, right to the end of the party. They were a huge part in making our day such a success. Anything we asked of them or requested they did with no problem. I can't say enough how happy we were with every aspect of their service.

Matt and Justina from Zeffert and Gold were nothing short of fantastic throughout the entire process. Matt is so enthusiastic about his work which made planning the menu that much more exciting. He even bent over backwards to accommodate our diversity in taste preferences. The theme of our wedding was a cultural blend between Middle Eastern/Russian (groom) and local Maryland cuisine (bride). Seriuosly - what a combination! Matt did an amazing job helping us tweak the menu so that our guests could get a taste of both cultures. The chefs even created some recipes just for us! And as a Marylander... you know how important crab cakes are. And we've had hundreds around the Maryland area. Z&G has an amazing crab cake that all our guests were raving about. We even had people call us the next day so they could recommend Z&G to their friends! And Justina was an absolute life saver during the wedding. Aside from running the event (which was a job all in its own given it was at our house), she set up all my center pieces and favors and made sure I ate and drank all night! She even chased me down a few times to remind me to eat - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! And she made sure I was never empty handed! Thanks guys! We had a blast and all our guests were raving about you!

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working Zeffert and Gold for our wedding at the Maryland Zoo and we couldn't imagine a more perfect experience. Our event coordinator was Matt Gold and he was amazing. We first met with him almost two years before our wedding so we really got to know him. It felt as if we were working with an old friend from the beginning. Matt was always available to help us with anything we needed. Our wedding day was always his top priority. Zeffert and Gold made the planning process so easy and Matt gave us great suggestions and advice. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Every last detail was taken care of from the ceremony to our send off. They could not do enough for us. Our venue and décor looked stunning when we arrived to get ready which really calmed our wedding day jitters. They even came to the rescue for our outdoor ceremony in the June heat. Zeffert and Gold set up our ceremony chairs and cold cucumber water for our guests to keep cool. Our friends and family raved about our food and the service. Many said that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The value for the service you receive is incredible as well. After a lot of research and pricing we realized that caterers with a lower per person price had a lot of hidden costs like high service charges, linen costs, and glass charges that ended up making lower quality caterers cost more than Zeffert and Gold. I cannot tell you how happy we were with this company. We can’t recommend them highly enough. If you want a picture perfect wedding day, look no further than Zeffert and Gold.

I cannot overstate how wonderful the services provided by Elaine and the whole crew at Zeffert & Gold were. Throughout the lead up to our event, Elaine provided candid guidance about food, settings, options, timing, etc., and we could not have been more pleased with how things turned out on our wedding day. Her guidance was spot on, and her sure and confident suggestions were really helpful. She was essential to the success of our wedding - she even helped us locate someone to run the show on the day of: a great relief.

The food at the tasting was fine (not fantastic, pretty good - but it a crazy snow day, and their staff made a considerable effort just to come in), but it was truly spectacular on the day of. I honestly couldn't believe how good it was, and practically everyone at the wedding commented at the variety, quality, and tastiness of the food. (The Middle Eastern Bazaar was a dark horse veggie win, the San Antonio Fiesta was awesome, and the Carvery satisfied more traditional palates.) Our venue had only a tiny, barely-functional kitchen, so Z&G prepared much of the food on-site, and it was amazing. Seriously - I would have been happy paying lots for that meal in a fine restaurant.

We wanted different booze, and so we bought our own and Z&G provided an AWESOME bartender and bar-back (and coolers so that we didn't have to bring pre-chilled beer). We had top shelf liquor and beer (from Costco in DC - great prices) and it was served with verve and cheer by their staff.

But the best part was the staff. To a person, they brought joy and graciousness. They smiled, complimented, danced, and laughed with our guests. I swear they had almost as much fun as we did.

While Z&G may be a bit more in terms of cost, they are 150% worth it. We are trying to figure out how we can come back to Maryland for a party so they can cater our 10th anniversary. Or maybe our 5th... :)

We cannot recommend them highly enough.

I did not have a DJ at my wedding. I did not have a band at my wedding. There were no clowns, magicians or professional dancers. The staff (including chefs, managers and waiters) of Zeffert and Gold WERE the entertainment... and between the food and the hard work they could not have done a better job. My wedding guests continued to both congratulate my bride and I on our marriage...and to tell us just how much they were enjoying the food and the atmosphere of the event. The buffet was always filled with hot, fresh and delicious food and the snowballs and cotton candy really sealed the deal. The staff was friendly and constantly working. It was a great job that made a very special day unforgettable.

Once picked our venue (The Cloisters), we immediately went to an open house there. At the open house, there were several different food vendors. I figured all of the vendors would be putting their best foot forward, and honestly some of the food by other vendors was downright bad. We made our way over to the Z&G setup and was amazed at how superior they were to the other vendors in quality and presentation. We were greeted by Matt Gold, who immediately won us over with his enthusiasm, professionalism, and down to earth personality. Matt is someone you immediately just think of as a friend.
We booked Z&G over a year in advance. I probably emailed Matt a hundred times between the open house and the wedding, and he always got right back to me and provided great ideas and was very helpful. He is really interested in what he does, and it shows. Before our wedding even came, I hired Z&G for a work event, and they did an amazing job. Matt, chef Tim, and the rest of the staff helped my office to host an Open House that people are still talking about because the food was THAT good.

I could go on and on, but basically, if you are trying to decide on a food vendor, look no further. They have unique food ideas and will customize a menu to be just what you want. We did a stations reception and had a BBQ station (complete with their home made bbq sauces), a Taco Station (with really tasty bang bang shrimp tacos) and a carving station (with Peruvian Chicken instead of the go-to turkey that you usually find). Everyone that we met on their staff is incredible. Thanks Matt and Z&G for helping us to plan and have the wedding of our dreams. On our honeymoon we were talking about how the whole thing went, and concluded that when we met Matt, and when we had our tasting (which was incredible, i've never been so full in my life!) we set pretty high standards for how the wedding would go. When the day came, even those high expectations were exceeded!

On our honeymoon we were talking about how the whole thing went, and concluded that when we met Matt, and when we had our tasting (which was incredible, i've never been so full in my life!) we set pretty high standards for how the wedding would go. When the day came, even those high expectations were exceeded! Read less

We absolutely LOVED the job that Zeffert & Gold did as our caterer!!! We primarily dealt with Iris, who was absolutely amazing…so many great ideas that we made us even more excited for our big day! From the place settings to center pieces, the name cards and favors…Z&G set everything up on our big day!! Most important, the food was AMAZING!! We have had so many compliments since our wedding about the food!!! Guests seem to only remember food they loved or hated, so it's a great feeling to know that everyone enjoyed their apps, meals and desserts!! I would definitely recommend Zeffert & Gold…if I have an event in the future that needs to be catered, I will definitely consider using them again!!!

Matt absolutely nailed it. He and his staff were phenomenal and people are still raving about his food. We can't thank Casey enough for keeping us fed and a beverage of our choice in our hands all night.

From the tasting up through the event, Matt kept us apprised, and he was flexible and creative with our ideas.

We could not have been happier with this caterer! We had a lot of Vegetarian concerns, and they worked with us on everything! We were especially pleased with are main event planner, Elaine Liss. I said to a friend that she made me feel as though it were her own daughter's wedding. The special chairs that we ordered did not arrive on time. They were about 3 hours late! My daughter,the bride, was upset and disappointed . The chairs arrived a half hour before the ceremony, just as others were being put out (the gray characterless kind). She informed the company that they should give the bride a discount, which they did.
The food was delicious! We had MANY compliments!! The staff at the reception, led by Brittany, was exceptional! They were polite, friendly and helpful.
I thank all involved for making this day so special for the bridal couple and our family!!

Zeffert and Gold did an absolutely awesome job catering my wedding. From start to finish, Aaron made the catering process a breeze. He was always professional, courteous, and attentive to what we wanted. At the last minute, one of our guests asked if he could prepare something separate due to their medical needs and he was kind and made sure to accommodate them. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and said it was some of the best they had ever had. I highly recommend using Zeffert and Gold for any event!

I can't even begin to tell you how amazing Zeffert and Gold were to work with! From the first meeting to the last bite that our guests ate, everything was perfect! The menu selection was both unique and extremely delicious, and Iris and Aaron couldn't have been more helpful and caring through out the whole wedding process! They knew that our daughter's wedding was special and made us feel like they were our own personal caterers! This was a very large wedding and their professional staff handled the whole event with ease, grace, and skill. They set up the room exactly the way we wanted it, and went over and beyond with every detail from start to finish. Don't even think of using anyone else to cater your next event! I'm still dreaming about the wedding menu, from the appetizers to the most delicious and stunning wedding cake that you could ever imagine! We can't wait to use them again for other occasions!

Zeffert & Gold made our daughter's wedding a gastronomic success. One never knows for sure whether the caterer will be able to serve en masse the same quality of food from the tasting, but everything Z&G served our guests was prepared to perfection and displayed artfully. And working with Iris Gold was the most wonderful experience. Her recommendations and advice were invaluable and we had so much fun in the process. If you're considering Z&G, look no further. Just be sure to go to your tasting with an empty stomach so you can enjoy all the delicious and innovative options they have to offer.

I am extremely happy that we used Zeffert & Gold to cater our wedding at the AVAM! Matt Gold was very responsive throughout the entire planning phase and went above and beyond to make our wedding day amazing. The staff was super friendly, quick to help with every request, and professional. The room set-up was great and they took care of arranging the centerpieces for us. We were able to supply our own alcohol and the bartender did a great job with only opening bottles and cases when needed. Due to that, we were able to return unopened bottles and cases and had very few 1/2 empty bottles. The food was absolutely AMAZING! We went with stations and everything was soooo good. All of our guests were raving about the food and I would agree with them when they said it was some of the best food they have had.

Should I have another event that needs catering, I would definitely go with Z&G again, and would recommend them to anyone.

BOOK THEM! I cannot say that enough, what a professional team! They are organized, caring, on time, and delicious! From pre ceremony drinks to cocktail hour and apps, to entrees and cake - everything was PERFECT. My sister and her husband used Zeffert and Gold for their wedding and as soon as we tasted their food, we ran up to Iris and asked if they were available for our wedding. We had the best experience, Iris and Aaron are so good and passionate at what they do. They understand that this is the most precious day of your life and they make it all come together effortlessly.

Do yourself a favor and book them!

One thing I realized while planning a wedding is that you have to surround yourself with good vendors, and Zeffert and Gold could not have been a better choice! From the beginning Matt was amazing to work with. He was so flexible, accommodating, and fun! He put my mind at ease...and the food! We got so many compliments on the food, especially a chicken dish that Matt himself recommended. He was always easy to contact and returned emails/phone calls quickly. They truly went above and beyond, and their prices are very reasonable. We could not have been happier with them
I would definitely recommend Zeffert & Gold to anyone who will listen!!

Zeffert and Gold was extremely helpful from the get go. No matter who we worked with both Matt and Rebecca were both phenomenal. Right from the start they were friendly and always got back to us around our time, not theirs. The day of our tasting they provided everything that we expected and more. They answered all our questions about our venue and the food was excellent. Also, they made our wedding planning much easier and less stressful by being more than just a caterer. The day of our wedding they arrived and had an excellent staff there that day. Everything from the bartenders to the wait staff were so helpful and we could not have been happier. I would recommend them to anyone that is getting married and I would use them again for other events without even looking elsewhere. Thanks, Zeffert and Gold.

Working with Zeffert & Gold exceeded our expectations at every turn! Iris and her team, as well as Chef Brian created a perfect menu for our wedding at the Evergreen Museum - they were responsive to our needs, professional and made sure no detail was missed! I felt completely relaxed with Z&G in charge of our event. From the beginning we were attracted to Zeffert & Gold's relaxed approach, affordable pricing, and willingness to work with us to customize our menu - but the final result was above and beyond what we had imagined: a beautiful presentation, delicious food and a capable and friendly staff. We got so much more then we ever anticipated from Z&G. We highly recommend Zeffert & Gold!

We are so happy that we chose Zeffert & Gold as the caterer for our wedding. The entire process went very smoothly. Iris was very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. We worked with her and the chef to design a unique menu to fit our tastes. Zeffert & Gold was very flexible. The tasting was delicious and one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. We ended up with 3 stations - make your own mac & cheese bar, taco bar, and slider bar. Our guests raved about the food - people especially liked the mac & cheese bar. The icecream station was also a huge hit. We thought about purchasing the alcohol ourselves, but ended up going with Z&G because their alcohol prices were very reasonable. Service on the day of was excellent - the staff set all our decorations up and helped pack everything up at the end of the night. And they packed all the leftover food for us - we had dinner for a full week! I'd highly recommend working with Zeffert & Gold!

Matt and the team at Z&G were amazing. My husband and I only met with a few caterers, but we knew right away that we wanted to work with Matt. From the beginning he was professional, knowledgeable, down to earth and fit the type of personality we mesh with. I was never once worried that something wouldn't turn out right. All of the food was delicious and we're sorry that we didn't get to eat more of it. We had a few changes to our menu after the tasting, and didn't even try our fish entrée, but it all turned out great and we're still receiving compliments on the food. Matt provided a few appetizers and beverages to the ready room after the ceremony while my husband and I were taking a few minutes to ourselves to take it all in. Our nosy nieces and nephews had swiped some of the food before we got up there, but Matt stepped in and brought up more goodies so that we could enjoy a little bit of the cocktail hour. My only complaint was that some of the servers cleaned up too quickly. I'd get a drink from the bar, put it down to continue dancing, turn around to pick it up and it was gone – this happened at least three times. But aside from that, the food was delicious, the set-up was beautiful and just the way I wanted it, and we got married without a hitch. So thank you Matt and all of the Zeffert and Gold team!

When my son and daughter-in-law were planning their vow renewal wedding reception I tried hard to talk them into selecting a venue that was all inclusive - I didn't want to have to do anything. My son, being a former chef at some high-end restaurants, insisted on finding a venue where we could bring in our own caterer and customize the theme and menu. He didn't have any specific caterer in mind but did want to check out a caterer that was going to be setting up at an open house at the Cloisters. Well after meeting Matt frpm Zeffert and Gold I knew we had found our caterer! He assured me that he and his team would take care of everything and that they were used to providing unique and customized food (my son and daughter-in-law wanted a whole pig as one of their stations!). Zeffert and Gold were not on the approved caterer list for the venue we chose but they quickly provided all the necessary documentation to the venue POC and it was no problem. Matt worked with us every step of the way and even though he couldn't be at our event, he ensured Don and his sister were aware of everything we needed. The food was EXCELLENT, the décor was orchestrated perfectly, and they could teach a class on how to provide exemplary customer service. Looking back now, I don't know why I was ever worried about choosing a venue that did not do on-site catering -- if we had gone that route I am convinced the reception would not have turned out as AWESOME as it did. My sister arrived at the venue early to ensure the staff was aware of all our decorating special requests and she too was impressed by their willingness to assist in every way possible (and that's a lot coming from my sister who isn't easily impressed). I can't say enough about how pleased I was with Zeffert and Gold and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others looking for a caterer. Lisa N. (Mother of the Groom)

We are a young couple who paid for our wedding all on our own. We didn't have a lot of extra money and Matt really understood that and helped us any way that he could. He didn't judge us or ignore our wishes like some other caterers that I had spoken to prior. He was very prompt in answering emails, very flexible with when we could set up meetings, and very accomodating to what we wanted. We had no idea what we were doing and he was there to pretty much coordinate a lot of the whole wedding process. Matt made us very comfortable and honestly left us worry free when it came to his part of our wedding. The whole place looked beautiful and the food was absolutely amazing. I could not have chosen a better caterer. If you have the chance to work with Matt, definitely do it! You won't regret it :)

We had such a pleasant experience working with Elaine. From beginning to end, she was professional, creative, and accommodating. We began working on the food vision for our wedding 11 months prior and she not only kept us on task but she also was helpful in adjusting our menu when our budget changed. All of the food from the tasting was excellent and translated the same on the night of our wedding (which was the day after the big storm we got in February). Elaine was always pleasant and honest in lending her professional expertise. She is so well versed in weddings. Whether traditional or off the beaten path, she can bring your vision to life. Every meeting we had, every email we exchanged, and every phone call left me more calm and certain that we made the right decision.
On the days leading up to the wedding, Elaine stayed in touch with us about our snow emergency plans (we had none :-) ). She assured us that her staff would be there and they were. The staff was there, setting up shortly after the roads we cleaned. I was so happy to see Elaine there making sure everything was ok. It was. The linens were beautiful and the table set up was great for our intimate wedding in such a big space.
Elaine left us a server just for the sweetheart table. She was wonderful. She made sure we ate. I’ve heard people say they didn’t eat at their wedding. That was not the case with us. We enjoyed every bit of of menu. They even brought us a spread from the cocktail hour since we were taking pictures during that time. The staff was great.
Food:
AMAZING! I got several comments from guests during the wedding and afterwards about how great the food was. Everyone enjoyed it. We had salmon and breaded chicken with a wonderful sauce. One guest said, “this is the best wedding food I’ve ever had!” Yes, it was that good. We also got the champagne punch which was so good! My glass was never empty because our server was so awesome. People raved over the cocktail h

Having Matt Gold of Zeffert and Gold cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. During the planning process, he was extremely responsive to emails and worked well with our other vendors. Since he had done many events at our venue, he knew what would work best and provided good and honest feedback on our ideas. He was also very detail oriented, which helped to ensure that everything would run smoothly. He was also very flexible with our food choices to make sure we were completely satisfied with the menu.

We felt completely comfortable with Matt and did not have to worry about a thing. He brought us drinks before the ceremony and even brought us over a plate of food after the ceremony. He coordinated with the other vendors to make sure everything according to the timeline. The food tasted exactly like it did during the tasting. We got so many compliments from our guests about the quality of the food and service.

We were so glad to work with Zeffert and Gold and definitely recommend their catering service!

The quality of service was exceptional! Monroe Zeffert personally worked with us, & I have nothing but high praise. He created an amazing menu & served over 200 guests with food people were talking about days later! The entrée was a dual plate of tenderloin & Chilean sea bass that was to die for. Any special dietary requests were served to those in need including vegan & vegetarian dishes. I will never have to search for a caterer again. I feel like I have a caterer for life! I would highly recommend!

From the very first meeting with Matt at Zeffert and Gold, we knew this was the place for us. Unparalleled customer service, great food and a can-do attitude separate Zeffert and Gold from your average caterer. We put these people through the ringer, with two separate tasting appointments, trying to get our menu "just right". Matt was with us every step of the way to ensure that we got exactly what we wanted. No request was too much and he made it very clear that if we wanted it, we should just ask. Nothing was off limits. And boy, did they deliver. When we walked into the WTC on the night of our reception, we were absolutely blown away! The attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond was amazing. And the food...the food was incredible! All night long our guests were raving about the food and the service. The servers were all very professional and they all spoke English. The bartenders were very accommodating and able to make any drink we requested. And everyone with Zeffert and Gold was very professional throughout the entire process. We cannot say enough good things about Zeffert and Gold, and Matt Gold in particular. We want to get married again just so we can have Z and G cater the event! It's been a few months now and our friends and family are still talking about our Big Party. Thank you 1000 times over to Zeffert and Gold for making our wedding reception the amazing event that we were hoping for.

We used Iris and Celebrations Kosher Catering for our November 2013 wedding and could not have made a better decision. Not only was Iris extremely flexible with our menu and dietary needs, she was responsible, personable, and professional. She worked with our band and venue to make sure that our day went smoothly, and made sure to check in with us throughout the night to make sure that we were happy. It really seemed like she cared about us and making our wedding day perfect.

Our guests loved the food, which was plentiful and delicious. I would recommend Zeffert & Gold/Celebrations Kosher Catering to any bride and groom looking for great service and great food.

Zeffert and Gold did a fantastic job catering our wedding. We worked with Matt Gold the entire time, and we couldn’t have been happier. He was always quick to respond to our questions, and was totally professional, even when we had last-minute changes to our seating arrangements.

On the wedding day itself, Matt really took care of us, making up plates of appetizers for us while we were doing family photos, checking in on us during dinner, and then wrapping up food for us at the end of the night. And the food was fantastic! We had many guests tell us afterward how much they enjoyed the food. We would recommend Zeffert and Gold without hesitation.

I cannot begin to share the blessing that it was to work with this company for one of the most important events of my life. Elaine worked a double job of caterer and wedding planner... and maybe even a third job as a therapist when another vendor didn't show up on time! Originally we had been working with someone else and got switched to Elaine, which made me a bit nervous at first, but she did not skip a beat! Elaine studied over all of our previous communication and made sure we were getting what we asked for. Everything about Zeffert & Gold was positive, from the friendliness of the staff to their punctuality to the quality of the food. I am also extremely appreciative that Zeffert & Gold was so accommodating to the dietary restrictions of myself, my husband, and our guests. We had vegans, vegetarians, dairy-free, gluten-free, and meat eaters all at the same event and everyone was satisfied! That is nothing short of a miracle! Use this company if you want to have a comfortable, elegant, stress-free, and DELICIOUS experience!

Working with Iris and the team at Zeffert and Gold was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. Our goal was to have a warm, elegant wedding with tasty food and wonderful service. Did I mention we also wanted to stay within budget? Finding Iris and her team was like taking a breath of fresh air.

The people we met at Z&G really cared about us and wanted to make sure everything was perfect. Iris was always two steps ahead and made sure even the smallest details were taken care of. She kept in contact with us in the days and weeks leading up to the wedding, and on the day of everything went off without a hitch.

Our guests loved the food and the presentation was worthy of a 5-star hotel. Our family and friends felt like VIPs and had so many wonderful things to say. We asked for a special family recipe to be included at one of the stations and it was absolutely perfect, just like my great-grandmother used to make. I would not hesitate to recommend Z&G to any of my friends.

Perfect!

After our initial meeting with Matt, we knew that we were in good hands. Matt answered every phone call, email, and texts whenever we had questions and requests during the 10 months between our first meeting and the wedding. He was upfront about the cost and the logistics of setting up and running our wedding, which I really appreciated. Matt's knowledge of the local venues/vendors really made Z&G a great asset for our wedding.

The food was amazing! His appetizers were some of the best food we've ever had. And don't be afraid to ask for anything custom, as he will go above and beyond to blow expectations.

The entire Zeffert and Gold crew were professional and courteous at our wedding... Most importantly, they made sure that we ate after our ceremony so that we had the energy to party afterwards.

Long story short, we'd hire them again in a heartbeat for our next catering needs.

Everyone I worked with at Zeffert and Gold, especially Iris Gold, was extremely invested in my event and were so personal. From the first meeting and tasting, I felt like everything I wanted was doable and my budget was worthy. (I can't tell you how many other caterers laughed at my budget) Iris helped me every step of the way and answered all of my questions leading up to the wedding day. The service on my wedding day was absolutely incredible. The food was great and all of the service staff were helpful when needed. I love this company so much, I referred them to my sister who is using them for her wedding in May! I would refer this catering company to anyone.

When the caterer who we had chosen refused to even act interested in our wedding, I went in search of someone who could handle the job. Since our venue required one of their "preferred" vendors, I began at the top of the list and worked my way down, simply visiting each catering company's website and passing my initial judgment based on appeal of their sites. Zeffert came out on top! They had wonderful pictures and reviews, and I wanted to know more. I called Iris that very day, and she returned my call within the hour. That was the first sign that I knew I wanted to work with her. Iris was a complete delight throughout my entire wedding planning experience. She listened to my ideas (no matter what time of the day I wanted to share), provided her own much- needed insight, and really made the best out of our limited budget. She never made me feel like she didn't care or didn't have time for me, and it really showed on the wedding day. Everything was done perfectly, and exactly as I expected! Not only did my husband and I enjoy ourselves, all of our guests raved about the food, the service, and especially Iris. Great company to work with!!!!!

I absolutely LOVED Zeffert and Gold. This was the second marriage for both of us and we wanted it to be a casual Hawaiian themed reception. Iris recommended all Island type food - we even had a roasted pig. All of the food was delicious. I had several guests ask me for the caterer's information. Iris was so helpful from the very beginning. Giving me decorating ideas for the tables, ideas for the cake and also the menu. At the end of the evening, they even made my "new" husband and I a basket of food to take with us. She was so easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable that I didn't have to worry about anything regarding the food and bar. I can honestly say without a doubt that I will be using Zeffert and Gold for ALL of my future caterering needs. They were definitely the BEST caterering service I have ever dealth with. I would highly, highly, highly recommend them to any of my friends!!!! Thank you, Iris, for making my wedding day PERFECT!!!

From the moment we even first inquired to Z&G about catering our wedding, I was impressed by everything in their operation. We worked with Matt Gold, and we could not have been more professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Whether by email or by phone, he was always easy to get a hold of and answered questions quickly and thoroughly. We was able to put us at ease about so many of the small details that go into planning - basically telling me not to worry about things because he was on top of it! We loved that Matt had run numerous events at our venue (Baltimore Museum of Industry) which only added to his expertise at being our go-to-guy for wedding day. And most importantly from a caterer, the food was AMAZING! Our guests told us over and over again how wonderful the food was, many saying it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. And day of, the Z&G staff are wonderful at making sure the wedding couple are well taken care of. Everything from bringing us water during our photos, to having a plate of food ready for us at our table, constantly checking in to see if we needed more drink or food or if anything was amiss (and not constantly in a bad way that was annoying - in a good way!). And at the end of the night the staff had wrapped up a bunch of food for us to take with us back to the hotel for late night snacking and leftovers, and were just great about getting the whole place cleaned up. I really can't say enough how wonderful it was to work with Z&G. I would immediately recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or really any event in the area.

I cannot find enough words to express how much we loved everything about having Zeffert & Gold cater our wedding. Matt Gold was so helpful in answering all our questions and helping us come up with a fabulous menu for our guests. The flexibility and willingness to help with every aspect made me feel like I truly didn't have to worry about a thing- and I didn't!
The guests are still talking about how good our food was and how much they loved the added touch of the ice cream bar. We are absolutely thrilled and would highly recommend Zeffert & Gold to anyone looking- you will not be disappointed.

I cannot find enough words to express how much we loved everything about having Zeffert & Gold cater our wedding. Matt Gold was so helpful in answering all our questions and helping us come up with a fabulous menu for our guests. The flexibility and willingness to help with every aspect made me feel like I truly didn't have to worry about a thing- and I didn't!

From our first contact with Zeffert and Gold there was never any doubt we wanted them to cater our wedding, but with Z&G you get more than just caterers. With their attention to detail and years of experience behind them, you get a team of people who go above and beyond to make your day unique to you as a couple and make you feel like your wedding is the only one they're working on.

We worked mainly with Matt during the months before the wedding. We felt very lucky we found such a great guy to work with. He was always offering up suggestions, listening to our feedback, and going out of his way to help us realize our ideas. He is extremely easy to talk to and from the beginning he put us at ease. We knew early on Matt already had another wedding scheduled the same day as ours, but we knew we were in good hands with Z&G. During the event itself we worked with Aaron, Taylor and Justina. They too, were fantastic. Aaron's years of experience helped our evening run smoothly and our guests commented how professional and great he and everyone was. Taylor was at the ready all evening, and wasn't fazed when we shifted the timetable during the event. Justina had the whole event running like a well-oiled machine, and all the rest of the staff there were wonderful as well. When we stepped outside to see the reception set-up for the first time, we were blown away seeing everything we talked about all come together so beautifully.

The food was outstanding. And it tasted exactly as it did during out tasting weeks before. We ended up going with stations (Z&G was extremely flexible with this and helped us create menus that reflected us as a couple) and many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. We agree. Wedding planning is crazy, but Z&G made a huge difference to our experience, and we're actually sorry to part ways. We thoroughly recommend Z&G for your wedding or any event for that matter-Thank you so much Zeffert and Gold!

WOW- the moment we finished the tasting we knew we didn't need to go anywhere else. Matt Gold was so flexible and easy to work with. We couldn't believe it when he said if we wanted to add anything or change it, let him know. That flexibility seems unheard of. The food was delicious and the servers were always available but not intrusive. There were no hidden costs. Z&G was clear, more than reasonable, on top of everything from start to finish. We feel so fortunate to have worked with Matt and Z&G!

I absolutely loved this lovely, organized, and helpful staff! Our wedding was 7/12/13 and we started planning in April! It was almost completely planned by Zeffert & Gold. They took care of our decorations (laid them out perfectly on the tables per our instructions), linens were beautiful, and packed up everything for us at the end of the night. They also catered personally to me and my husband all night! Drinks were always full and plates too! They were lovely! The food was absolutely amazing from the tasting to the wedding it just got better and better! We used them for our cake as well and it was so delicious! We just ate our frozen top for our one year and still tasted just as delicious as we remembered! Everything was perfect on our day thanks to them! The price was great and we had apps, dinner, ice cream bar, and cake!!

All I can do is repeat the praise of the previous reviewers. Zeffert and Gold is an amazing caterer, and I especially have to recommend Matt Gold as event manager. He knew exactly what to do, when and where, and helped make our wedding perfect. We had a difficult time choosing between Zeffert + Gold and another, cheaper caterer - I am SO glad we chose Zeffert + Gold.

The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and Matt even stepped in to carry my train for my entrance to the ceremony after all of my bridesmaids had already started down the aisle. My husband and I were served plates of food at the start of the reception (which was actually a buffet), a full glass of wine was delivered to me early on, and they even gave my husband plates of appetizers from the kitchen as we missed the hors d'ouevres to take pictures. There was a very minor mix-up serving our cake, but the way Zeffert + Gold's staff handled it actually raised my opinion of them even further. We had two tiers of different flavors, which the staff didn't realize so they only served the bottom layer and set the top aside for us to save for our anniversary. When we realized what had happened, even though it was long after cake had been served, the staff sliced up the remaining layer and brought it around the reception to make sure each guest had a chance for another slice. We had no leftovers! We also got some bonus uplights "just because".

Long story short, if you choose Zeffert + Gold, you will not regret it!

From the door Zeffert and Gold was absolutely amazing. My wife and I had a specific dish that we wanted for our wedding, and it was not something that was either ordinary or normal for a wedding or even a caterer. Elaine and her team went above and beyond to not only figure out how to do what we requested, but they truly embraced the concept and the ideas we had. They worked with us the entire way to both provide us with what we were looking for, but also provided us guidance in our design to make sure that the experience was optimal for both us and our guests. They did all of this for what was a small wedding, with a small budget.

Zeffert and Gold provided constant communication back to my wife and I during the planning which was very important as we live out of state. They coordinated with the venue and the DJ only involving us when they felt is was absolutely necessary.

We truly could not have the wedding we wanted without Zeffert and Gold. Other caterers we talked to before Zeffert and Gold told us there was no way we could do what we wanted. Zeffert and Gold is clearly not in the business of saying "no", but instead asking "how".

I not only recommend them to anyone who needs catering services for an event but they will be my first and only call if I need catering again

Our catering experience was wonderful. Monroe handled our event, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The food was great- all of our guests said so. The set up was flawless, and the staff professional. I was also pleased with the prices. We were working with a smallish budget, and had a large number of guests so it was important to us that the price not get out of control, but we also didn't want to sacrifice quality. We opted for a buffet style, and it worked out perfectly. It was also very calming to know we were working with a company that was experienced with our venue so we could let them handle all the decisions about set up and trust that they would do it the most practical way. So glad we chose Zeffert and Gold!

Zeffert and Gold catered my wedding held on June 28, 2013 at the Gramercy Mansion located in Baltimore, Maryland. From my first consulation with the owner Iris Gold, I knew Zeffert and Gold was who I wanted to cater my wedding. I never even pursued any other caterers because I was so impressed with the kind and respectful treatment I received. After picking a package and signing our contract, I had a sudden desire to change the entire theme of our cuisine. Chef Dan and Iris sat down with my fiance and I and came up with an entire customized menu to our liking. From the collard greens, to the cat fish, to the crawfish and grits, all of it was out of this world! Although we had buffet style, my entire wedding party was served our plates without having to life a single finger. As if that was amazing enough, my elderly father in law and mother in law were also served at their table so they wouldn't have to get up. Our bridal party was also made very comfortable with a personal set up of beverages and appetizers while waiting for our grand entrance. Our guests are still raving about the food, and how non "cookie cutter" it was. I feel so blessed to have worked with such a phenominal company. It is true when people say picking the right caterer is the most important part of your event. Zeffert and Gold is all that and more! Iris Gold was initially a business partner, but I know consider her a dear friend.

From beginning to end, the Zeffert & Gold team provided a worry free atmosphere for the most important day of my life. Matt Gold is a consummate professional. He made us feel at ease with a no-pressure consultation. He provided a tasting session that was beyond our expectations. Our menu included bacon wrapped asparagus spears, mango shrimp, rosemary garlic fries and milkshakes for desert. Matt's ability to remain cool during the hectic prep was remarkable. Even with a heavy thunderstorm one hour before the event, Matt held out hope for the best and we were able to go on with an outdoor ceremony when the weather broke. I've never worked with a caterer before, but I will have a hard time booking anyone else for future events. See you at the anniversary Z&G!

Amazing! Zeffert and Gold catered my daughter’s black tie wedding at The Grand Lodge of Maryland for 270 guests. Everything was perfect! Elaine Liss guided us from the very start… She made recommendations that were spot on for our affair. The food was delicious and plentiful! No one went home hungry.  The presentation was beautiful. The stationary hors d’oeuvres were located in three different areas and were abundant and gorgeous. Guests are still raving about the crab dip.  

Elaine is a must if you choose Zeffert and Gold. She set up the reception and it was stunning! We met with Elaine and Monroe Zeffert at The Grand Lodge before the event and everything went as planned.  Monroe did a spectacular job as the Reception manager. His staff was attractive, polite and extremely accommodating. There were no lines at the bars and the signature drink, an orange muddled mojito, was a hit!

​We also  had a wine tasting with Aaron Gold who selected delicious wines for our event. As our guests arrived they were greeted with butler service, wine, signature drink, or water. Zeffert and Gold’s china, flatware, and glasses were perfect for our event’s dishes and cocktails.

​Our event was upscale and Zeffert and Gold delivered! The value cannot be compared! We highly recommend Zeffert and Gold!

WONDERFUL!!! On a scale of 1-10, we would have to give Zeffert & Gold at least a 20. We can't say enough positive (and well-deserved) things about working with them for our wedding. Working with Matt Gold was so easy from the start--he's responsive, solicitous and very reassuring throughout the planning process. It is obvious how much experience he and other Z&G staff have with catering/coordinating weddings, and he offered lots of guidance and recommendations, including on points that we wouldn't have thought about. He helped to coordinate with our other vendors and made sure things ran smoothly in advance and on the day. Knowing that we were in good hands took a huge weight off our shoulders and let us focus on enjoying our wedding.

Matt led a great team on our big day: the food was absolutely delicious, the service was amazing, and the presentation of the food and all of the reception set-up was beautiful. We appreciated all of these aspects and the attention to detail, as did our guests who continue to rave about Z&G. Matt and his team went above and beyond, making sure that we (and parents of the bride and groom) were hydrated and fed throughout the day--from bringing us water before the ceremony to sending us back to the hotel with a snack basket in case we were hungry post-wedding. Zeffert & Gold surpassed our expectations in every way and were a huge part of making our wedding such a wonderful experience.

Zeffert and Gold was an excellent choice to cater our wedding. The variety of choices that were available to us was incredible. The food was phenomenal! Two months after our wedding and I am still hearing compliments about the food. The biggest surprise was in the details. Little did we know when we started planning our reception with Iris Gold that we were getting a wedding planner as part of the deal. She literally thought of everything - which for a bride planning a wedding in 3 months- was a blessing. I cannot say enough good things about Iris and Zeffert and Gold. I can't wait to plan an event so I can hire them again.

The best! Matt Gold, who was our event manager, was truly amazing. From our first meeting - to the day of the wedding, he handled every detail with a personal touch, which we loved. Matt was on top of every detail of the catering aspect, and was extremely helpful and flexible with tasting, and final decisions. In addition, he is a great person who really cares about your event and does everything to make your day very special (and exceptional). We had more of our guests comment on the amazing food, over anything else. Our food was absolutely delicious and not at all what most catered, large event caterers serve. Our service was first class. It was like each and every plate was individually prepared and presented, like you would order in a restaurant. The crabcake and filet were as good as any we have had at a top restaurant. I can highly recommend Matt Gold at Zeffert and Gold for your wedding or any catered event that you may have. We loved everything about them. Additionally, you don't get "sticker shock", they are very reasonable considering the quality of food that you get. We made the best choice to use Zeffert and Gold!

Zeffert and Gold Catering is the BEST! From the initial meeting to discuss the basics (what we envisioned and to learn about their services) we knew we were in good hands and were going to be happy with our choice to have them as our caterers. Iris and Aaron met with us on multiple occasions to ensure that we were going to have everything we wanted at the wedding and to make sure the "timeline" for the wedding events would go smoothly. My fiance (now husband) and I were so excited after our food tasting as the food was delicious and we just knew our guests would think the same. Sure enough, guests to this day continue to compliment us on the tasty food at our wedding and the excellent catering and bar service that was provided. Zeffert and Gold and their amazing staff will work together to ensure that your special day is nothing short from perfect. I would recommend them to any bride who wants the most talented caterers in the Baltimore area!

Zeffert & Gold was an amazing choice. We worked with Iris for the most part and she is just terrific. She understood just what we were wanting. Her energy is just what you want to throw a stellar reception. The food was amazing. A family member of mine who pretty much never throws our compliments actually came to me and said how great the food was! And as the bride and groom... they took care of us well. Made plates for us during pictures and brought us drinks. The whole staff is incredibly kind and professional. So happy we picked them!

I am the mother of the Bride and working with Zeffert & Gold was a pleasure. They were very professional, yet very friendly and flexible. They took care of everything from the table linens, set-up, food to the wedding cake. When we walked into the reception hall before the wedding it was breathtaking!... We couldn't believe how beautiful everything looked! And the service through out the night was excellent! All of our guests were very pleased with the food and set up and many asked about our caterer for future events. They were also very attentive to the bridal party and family. I would highly recommend them.

We worked with Matt, someone you MUST have on your wedding team! He's the kind of guy that rolls with whatever is going on, knew our venue (Cloisters Castle) like the back of his hand, and could put you at ease instantly. He always listened to my and my husband's ideas and if he knew something that could work better, he'd tell us.

Even if I got worked up about something silly, just talking to Matt would get my head back on straight. We knew we were going to enjoy our wedding day with Matt at the helm, and not have to hand-hold him or his team throughout the day. Totally unflappable.

My husband and I decided that the #1 priority of our wedding was the food. We made the right call going with Z&G. Our eclectic, stations-based menu was a huge hit with guests and with us, so much so that we pigged out on leftovers for a solid week afterwards. In lieu of traditional cake, they did a great milk and cookies bar and had warm freshly baked cookies that were melt in your mouth fantastic.

We had a dedicated server, Pat, who brought us a little of everything at dinner and also immediately following our ceremony before making our grand entrance. I know some brides say they never ate at their own wedding, but Pat made sure we were plenty full!

Our bartender Mark was also great. He knew I only wanted to drink one thing all night so whenever I walked into the bar area, he had a glass to hand me. He also took great care of my diabetic mom with diet coke after diet coke. Everyone said our four signature cocktails he was making were awesome.

Zeffert and Gold is the perfect combination of industry knowledge, strong customer service skills, and food you'll crave. They'll make your wedding complete.

Zeffert & Gold did a GREAT job catering my daughter's wedding reception in October! We worked closely with Elaine Liss. She is a warm, caring, professional individual. Her attention to detail, experience, and expertise in the area of gourmet cuisine was outstanding! The staff was very friendly and welcoming to our guests. The room was beautiful and all logistics went smoothly. Elaine spent a lot of time working with us and customizing the reception menu. Tim, one of the chefs even made our favorite family meatball appetizer that was served during the cocktail hour. Elaine's suggestions were wonderful and the entire staff aims to make the day "perfect." The food was delicious and our guests were very complimentary. I would definitely recommend Zeffert & Gold for outstanding catering!

Working with Iris was a dream come true! Although in typical bride fashion I did not really get a chance to eat on my wedding day- we took home the leftovers and had a true feast the next day. We still get compliments on how good the food was at our wedding- namely, the mashed potato bar was our biggest hit ;)

I would HIGHLY recommend Zeffert & Gold. Pricing was right on and they definitely worked with us to keep our reception for 150+ well within our budget. We are planning on using them for future events without a doubt!

He did everything to ensure that the night ran properly and every guest was happy. I would say Zeffert and gold areworth every last penny for quality of food and service.

I worked with Matt Gold at Zeffert & Gold and was very pleased. Matt worked with us to tailor a menu that reflected our wants as well as what we thought our guests would like (variety.) We got so many compliments on the food (an engaged friend has asked us to send on our caterer's info already.) Since we were busy running around during dinner, Matt had the kitchen put together a "to-go" box for us, which we enjoyed later.

Matt also put together our ceremony and reception decor and it looked great. He paid attention to where I wanted things to go and really made sure everything was perfect.

A key factor (behind delicious food!) in our decision to go with Z&G was price! Out of the five caterers we met with, Z&G came away with the best economic option for us without sacrificing any of the quality we wanted.

We will definitely work with Z&G again for future catering needs.

My daughter's wedding was just fabulous, mostly due to the care and attention to detail of Iris Gold, co-owner of Zeffert and Gold. From first contact to wrap up at the end of the evening, she was there to solve problems, present ideas, answer questions etc, etc. I felt like her only client. My daughter had a "pintrest" wedding, many, many details and Iris took care of each and every one. She is very organized and attentive. the food was out of sight. Many of our guests commented on how fabulous the cocktails and dinner were. The service staff could not do enough. Each time a guest got up from a table, they would return to a folded napkin. They went above and beyond thier contracted agreement. They do anything to make the event go smoothly and make us happy. Matt Gold even had photos of the event posted on his blog within 1 day of the wedding. We hated to say goodbye and plan on doing more events in the future- somehow,somewhere!! Please contact me if you would like to discuss Zeffert and Gold any further!

Thankfully we got to try all the food at a testing and it was AMAZING! I couldn't be happier! I have an obsession with Dr. Pepper and they let me have a Dr. Pepper toast instead of champagne.. It was perfect :-D

I cannot even begin to express how wonderful it was to work with Monroe Zeffert. We initially chose Celebrations Kosher Catering by Zeffert and Gold because we wanted a kosher caterer who could do a dairy meal that was top-notch. They definitely delivered!

From the first time I spoke with Monroe on the phone, he was willing to go the extra mile. We had two tastings with him, and he spent hours on the phone and via e-mail with us to make sure that everything was perfect. Even when things went awry with the venue, he was there to step in and make sure that everything worked perfectly.

And the food? People are still raving about it! I would definitely go back to Celebrations Kosher catering for any event I have in the future.

Thank you so much Monroe for everything!!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Zeffert and Gold. Iris was always very responsive to my emails and made the planning process simple. Zeffert and Gold coordinated all of the tables/chairs/linens/tableware for our wedding which really streamlined our planning. The food was great at our reception and our guests are still talking about it! Mark was "in charge" on the day of our wedding and I can honestly say that he was amazing. The reception room looked amazing and everything went off smoothly. Mark made sure that my husband and I were taken care of in every way from start to finish from making sure we had drinks, food, prepping a care package of food for us to take at the end of the night, helping my parents load up their car with gifts, etc., and he even hailed a cab for us to get back to our hotel. This kind of service is a rare find! Iris followed up with me shortly after the wedding to make sure that everything went well, which was much appreciated. My parents were impressed with Zeffert and Gold and we all agree that we would use them again in the future!

Zeffert and Gold were amazing to work with. We worked with Iris Gold, who was personable, professional and quick to get back to us. They were very flexible with the menu, meeting times and details of the day. We even changed our ceremony space set up in the last 2 weeks and they didn't bat an eye. And then the food! It was so good! We had stations and everyone loved it! We received many compliments about the food. Stations allowed us to select a variety of foods that represent us and could also satisfy every guest. We also had them make a brownie "cake" instead of a traditional wedding cake and they executed that just as we requested. It was awesome. We definitely recommend Zeffert and Gold!

Zeffert and Gold were absolutely incredible- anyone looking for catering in the Baltimore area should stop looking and go with them. They take care of every detail for your day, and on the day are flexible and ready to take on any challenge, and our day certainly presented many of those! Iris, Matt and their whole team worked hard and really made such an impression on all of our guests. The room was set up beautifully, the food was absolutely top notch, and the service was second to none. They catered two events for us on the same night and it all was done seamlessly and without issue, something that you just can't find in wedding vendors! They are amazing.

Aaron Gold, Justina, Shane, and the rest of the Zeffert & Gold family made the reception a talked about event! The food was amazing, the wait staff definitely took care of the bride and groom along with all their guests, and clean up was a breeze with the professionalism of their staff! I loved the responsiveness of Mr. Gold to my concerns all the way up to the day of when some guests showed up with +1s they didn't let us know about! The flexibility and the ability to make sure that wedding went on without a problem definitely makes Zeffert & Gold a caterer to recommend to all! Go for the beef tenderloin with red wine reduction sauce and you really can't go wrong!

We received so many compliments on the food, linens, room set-up and champagne. Iris and her staff's attention to detail was wonderful and they were so easy to work with. The cake (from Sugarbaker's) was absolutely gorgeous. Our entire family had such an enjoyable day thanks to Zeffert & Gold.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Zeffert and Gold. They were a pleasure to work with, and they made the wedding very special. Being from out-of-town, I relied heavily on their discretion and suggestions about other local vendors as well. They rolled with the punches when the bride and groom had creative ideas. Guests who were not kosher were amazed that kosher food could taste so good! I highly recommend working with them.

Zeffert & Gold was the greatest! They were both my wedding and rehearsal dinner caterer. I had the pleasure of working with Iris and Justina who were very insightful and helped me with the details of my special day. They made everything easy. From the linens, to the menu, etc. If I had a question about anything, I could always email or call and they were always available to help. The food is absolutely delicious and I was told that repeatedly from everyone who came to the wedding. Our cake was beautiful and delicious from SugarBakers through Z&G. If I needed suggestions on other vendors, they were always happy to provide me with their recommendations. All in all, my husband and I were very, very happy with how everything came out and we would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

I am so happy we chose Zeffert and Gold for our wedding. The food was amazing and Iris Gold was wonderful to work with. The food tasting was one of our favorite parts because everything was so delicious and cooked for us that morning. They also give you the option to get your cake through them via Sugar Bakers which I highly suggest. It was so delicious! Iris not only helped us pick our own menu but basically planned our whole cocktail and reception. She took care of the timeline and place settings and even our candy bar. There was a last minute change in their staffing due to a situation out of our control, but we didn't even notice. We loved working with Zeffert and Gold and highly suggest them if you want high quality food unlike normal wedding food you expect.

The whole staff at Zeffert & Gold were amazing to work with - very, very professional and really know their stuff, but also very flexible and easy going. Iris helped us through the whole process and was very easy to work with. Guests raved over the food (and the Sugar Bakers cake that we got through Zeffert & Gold). We went with a buffet style set up because we were worried about budget, but it didn't feel like it looked "less expensive." They had a carving station for the steak and a beautiful presentation of salmon for the guests - it really looked great! Honestly, from all the comparison shopping I did, you can't beat Zeffert & Gold for quality & value.

Most importantly though, they are AMAZING in a crisis and just know how to handle anything that may come. We were dealing with 105 degree humid weather and they had a sick bride (not from anything fun - from overheating/dehydration) and they were just so, so helpful. When I was having to be hidden in the back because I was sick, I really didn't have to worry about anything because Iris kept checking on me and also passing on that guests were doing well.

So, in summary: Iris is great to work with, the staff are super professional, and the food is delicious. If you choose them for your wedding, you really wont have to worry about things running smoothly-- they definitely will handle everything!

Iris went above and beyond to make this everything I wanted and more. She worked with us to stay in our budget but still make it as nice an event as it could be. She was truly a joy to work with.

As for the food- let's just say, it's been nearly a year since our wedding and people are still raving about the food at our wedding. It was positively delicious. Zeffert and Gold catering exceeded my expectations with little touches like fresh flowers and coordinated decorated displays. The bartenders were very accommodating and friendly. The staff was meticulous when packing up the centerpieces and was even kind enough to help bring the gifts back to my room. I could not have asked for more- they really were a full service caterer!

I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for great quality and value.

My mother did most of the dealings with the caterer, so I can't really speak to the planning process (though they also did my sister's wedding, so my mo must have had a good experience).

The day of the event, Z&G staff were professional and prompt. The food was excellent! I loved having a stations menu so that I could have a little bit of everything. yum yum yum

I can't say enough about Iris and her staff. I was on a very tight budget and Iris worked with me to have a great event within my budget. She offered to lend items to help decorate and never made me feel unreasonable for wanting to stick to a budget. We had numerous do-it-yourself projects and Iris' team was helpful in pulling it all together. We also were able to save a bundle by buying the liquor ourselves, but used the Zeffert and Gold bartender.
We had a professional chef who attended our wedding- he typically is very critical about food/restaurants. He raved about the food. My step-brother said he wanted to drink the gravy with a straw it was so good. My husband says that he ate 3 plate fulls. To sum it up- the food was delicious.
Having worked for a caterer in the past, I know that problems always happen during an event. I did not hear about a single one! I am sure there must have been a hiccup at least once, but the staff were so professional that I did not even get a hint of it. I have still not heard one complaint.
I never write reviews-- but this is one that I had to write given how hard they worked!
Thanks,
Keeley

I can not say enough positive things about Iris Gold and her staff! We loved working with Iris, she made us feel like we were her only clients. She answered emails and calls quickly, was very helpful in making menu selections, picking linens, setting up for our reception and so much more. The food that was served at our wedding was delicious, we only wish we had eaten more of it! At our tasting, we were so surprised by how good everything was and that it did not taste like standard wedding fare. Its been a few weeks since our wedding and our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed the food. The staff was extremely professional and took care of everything we needed during our reception - Iris even brought me a plate of appetizers when I was having my bustle done. We could not have asked for anything more and we are so happy with our decision to hire Zeffert & Gold.

From the very first phone call we made to Zeffert & Gold, we knew they were the catering company we wanted to use. Iris was wonderful to work with, and the way Zeffert and Gold worked their pricing made budgeting easy. Just about everything was included in their price-china, silverware, drink-ware, a large selection of linen colors, etc. (All the drink-ware was glass-not plastic cups like we've had at some weddings.) Iris was very friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. She was always quick to respond to questions we had. She made suggestions when we asked for them, always gave us honest answers, and allowed us to create the menu we wanted, and also accommodated our guests w/ special dietary needs. Everyone raved about how good the food was, and how friendly and professional the staff was. Nakita was in our charge of running our reception, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. She made sure everything was done just as we wanted it, and looked out for my husband and I to make sure we had everything we needed. At the end of the night she sent us away with a beautiful basketful of food for the evening, and packaged up the rest of the food for my parents to take home with them. The staff even helped my parents collect everything from the venue and get it to their car. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

What would we have done without Monroe Zeffert? We received news that we couldn't use our venue only a few months before our wedding, and Monroe immediately calmed me and reminded us of another venue we'd considered. It ended up being the perfect place, and the wedding went off without a hitch.

Everyone loved the food and the presentation. I know that there was a full wait staff, but they were so discreet that I don't recall seeing anyone throughout the evening!

Using Zeffert and Gold was by far the best decision we made for our wedding. From our first meeting to the actual wedding day Iris Gold was a pleasure to work with. Every idea and vision I had for the wedding Iris made happen. On the actual day of the wedding I had the pleasure of having both Iris and Aaron Gold at my event and it was a success!

Our guests raved about all the food from the passed apple cider, to cocktail hour and dinner itself. The setup looked beautiful.


You will not be disappointed if you chose them to cater your event, I would highly recommend them.

We wanted to have dinner served family style, and Z&G made it work great! it made for a really dynamic dinner experience, and people liked being able to try a little of everything. The food itself was very good, and we liked that they were able to use local and seasonal ingredients.

Iris and the whole Z&G's staff were also very good at pampering my husband and I throughout our entire wedding day so we were able to eat and drink plenty! Once again, I would highly recommend this team, they did a really great job!

All of the food at the wedding was fabulous, from the appetizers to the main courses. Many of the guests commented on just how good everything was. Additionally, Iris Gold was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible, responsive, and always enthusiastic! In many ways, she actually was the wedding planner in addition to the caterer, and the entire event ran smoothly. I recommend Zeffert & Gold 100%.

My wedding was just a couple days ago but I can't say enough positive things about Iris and her staff that made our day so special. The food was out of this world! The chillian sea bass was probably the best fish I've ever tasted and we had many complimens about the jerk rubbed tenderloin. Also, I highly recommend the sushi as a part of the hor devours, the presentation and taste was wondeful. Thanks for helping to make our day special!

In planning our wedding we had a difficult time at first finding a caterer that would let us plan our whole menu. Zeffert and Gold worked with us, and did everything we asked and more. Iris Gold was amazing. She was there early making sure everything was set up right and stayed in excellent contact with me the months before the wedding. She made sure her staff packed my husband and I plates to take with us after the reception and ensured that right after the ceremony one of her staff members brought us a plate of appetizers and our specified drinks to enjoy alone together before pictures. We also got all of our linens through Zeffert and Gold and they were gorgeous! Our wedding was perfect... and the food was DELICIOUS!!!

I could not possibly say enough good things about Zeffert & Gold Catering. Its been 2 weeks since my wedding and people are still raving about the food and service.

From the tasting, to the site visit, and then to the main event Iris has been completely calm, cool, and collected. We were never rushed or persuaded to make decisions that were not completely our own. This is important as many vendors will push you toward their "cookie cutter" solutions, but Iris worked very close with us and listened to everything we had to say. She helped us create a menu and setup that worked within our budget and would please all of our guests. Their delicious menu selections (that you can find on their website) made it easy for us to stock the hors d'oeurves and dinners with some palate pleasing options. Let me list the extraordinary points.

1. Delicious food. Iris and her staff shop local, which means the food is fresh. We had a wedding of about 100 people and everyone raved about how the food wasn't just reheated from the night before. Everything was succulent and flavorful. Their menu items are all creative as well, allowing you to have some unique offerings that are going to be a big hit amongst your guests.

2. Impeccable service. Not only was Iris very reassuring and put us at ease to all our worries, but Mickey was also excellent. He told me that he was going to put the same effort into our wedding that he put into his daughter's. It was such a relief to know we were in such good, caring hands. Guests noted that their glasses were always full, the food arrived timely, and they never felt that the wait staff were in the way. Linda, who was tending bar, was excellent as well. She was very personable and added a lot of charm to the night with every drink she served.

3. Extremely flexible. Decisions were so easy to make. It seemed once we had an idea, Iris helped us form it and it was good to go. She even had some really great insights into how we should setup. The coffee urns in the bar were a big hit. Although coffee was served, I have a lot of coffee drinkers who didn't have to wait for their 2nd or 3rd fix.

4. Eco-friendly - this is important to us because it makes sense to reuse and recycle where you can. It is efficient minded people that make efficient solutions, and because Zeffert & Gold care about the environment, we felt they were a very responsible catering company. We were very impressed with their policies to buy local where possible and to recycle.

5. Uber-Caring - Iris asked what we would like to do with all the leftovers. Since we got married 2 states away from where we live, we weren't sure. She gave us the option of having them donate the food to the soup kitchens. We loved the idea and felt good knowing it wasn't going to waste.

6. The little things - Iris and her staff also packaged together an adorable basket for us with many of the hors d'oeuvres that we weren't able to enjoy while we were doing pictures. We got to sneak away to the bridal room and dig in while waiting for announcements. Iris also got us a bottle of champagne as a present!

Book with Zeffert & Gold and you're not only getting a great caterer, but a fantastic event planner and really good friends that will make sure everything goes smoothly at your wedding!

Aaron Gold was so wonderful! He helped me stay on budget and was super flexible with my changing needs (as replies came in). They helped set up centerpieces and just were perfect.

Mr. Gold personally managed every detail. I was very happy when all was said and done! My guests raved about my appetizers and about my cake, which Zeffert and Gold get from Sugarbakers. They assigned one server to just meet my husband and my needs. We were brought dinner and drinks and she waited on us so diligently!

Would definitely use again!

I worked mostly with Iris Gold at Zeffert and Gold and couldn't be more happy with their service! She helped me plan and was very open to my vision of the wedding. On the day of, I was a little nervous because she was not there, but the manager she sent was absolutely wonderful as well! The staff was friendly, looked like they were having a great time, and made absolutely sure that my husband and I were well taken care of. They went so far as finding our champagne flutes wherever we set them down and returning them to us filled up! They also put together a basket of food for us to take up to the room at the end of the night, which was great! After a little mix-up with the after wedding transportation (the cabs didn't show up), the staff even called and got my guests taxi cabs quickly on New Year's Eve. The food was wonderful and the price was absolutely affordable. I would recommend them to others without hesitation!

Our wedding was just 2 days ago and our guests are still raving about how excellent the food was, and how courteous, sweet, and professional the staff members were. Choosing a caterer for a wedding is a daunting task, and thankfully I received a personal recommendation to use Zeffert. After having met with Iris in person and having her respond so quickly to my numerous questions and concerns via email, I felt completely confident that they would do a great job. They didn't just do a great job, they did a superb job! I never once had any worries during the entire evening, and stuffed myself silly with their delicious food! I wouldn't hesitate to use Zeffert again in the future, and will recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer.

The staff members at Zeffert and Gold were very efficient and professional. We worked mostly with Iris Gold and loved how excited she was about our wedding, making it special. Iris took care of many small details that took a great deal of stress off of us. Our wedding was originally planned for outside, but the weather did not cooperate. Zeffert and Gold took charge, insuring that our last-minute inside ceremony was lovely. The day of the wedding, Aaron Gold had to substitute for Iris. His responsiveness to our needs allowed us to completely enjoy ourselves without having to worry about the details and changes of the evening.

We were also picky picky about the alcohol and they did an amazing job with that, we got the wine, microbrew beers and special cocktails (mojito bar) that we wanted and the guests were really happy with it. Best value in Baltimore, hands down!

Since we went with the stations, Iris made sure we were able to taste as many of our choices as possible. If it was even possible, the food at the wedding was better than the tasting. If I ever needed a catering service, I would 100% use Zeffert and Gold again and again.

Aaron is a catering godsend. Not only did he jump-in at the last minute when my other caterer canceled, he also handled my special requests with enthusiasm.

I wanted my wedding to be as environmentally friendly as possible, including using local and organic foods. Aaron did a great job finding local seafood and an organic beef producer. He also sourced local, organic salad greens and tons of other ethical food; served my favorite vegetarian sausage at the wedding brunch; and served fairtrade coffee. Aaron took a chance and created an appetizer I wanted to serve, even though it wasn't on his current menu, and it turned out fabulous! Green catering was not Aaron's expertise when we started working together, but he really took my requests to heart.

Not only was the food fabulous and the presentation beautiful, but Zeffert and Gold's staff service was seamless. There was literally one staff person who always made sure I had appetizers during pictures, fresh drinks put in my hand all night and a slice of cake! I would have barely eaten had it not been for the staff.

Go with Zeffert & Gold, you won't be disappointed!

On our wedding day the staff was very professional and quick to react. I had forgotten one of my bridesmaids was allergic to pineapple and when they presented her the plate I remembered. Oh no!!! Well I told Aaron and within minutes she had a fresh dish without the pineapple glaze. They made dinner flow without any disruptions!!! I was very thankful for his quick fix and delcious food!!!!

Zeffert and Gold was the only caterer we met with, but Matt made us feel comfortable right away, even though we were both anxious and uncomfortable with wedding planning. He answered all our questions and gave lots of good suggestions. We went with the stations options: a welcome station and appetizers at the cocktail hour and 3 dinner stations at the reception. At first I thought it seemed really expensive, but they included linens, tableware, soda, and coffee, so not having to find separate vendors for those things was definitely worth it. On the day of the wedding, they set up all the tables and chairs (provided by the venue) and set up the table decorations and favors, so we did not have to do a thing. The staff was very attentive and friendly; they brought us drinks and a plate of appetizers right after the ceremony so we could have something to eat before pictures started. The food was delicious and they sent all the leftovers home with us, so we had dinner for a week afterwards too! We definitely made the right choice!

Iris Gold was our event manager; she was fun, easy to work with and provided great experience. Dan, the head chef, was highly professional, organized, passionate and skilled in his profession. Both were helpful and adaptive to any challenges we presented to them.

Communication: all staff of Zeffert and Gold were timely and professional in their communications with us.

Pricing: was competitive among comparable caterers we interviewed and tasted with.

Food taste and quality: We cannot rave about this enough, nor could our guests. We chose them based on the excellent taste of their food; Fresh, creative presentation, and downright delicious.

Day of event: The proof was in the performance on the day of: All on-site staff of Zeffert and Gold were timley, clean, and professional. The greatest compliment we can give them is that they were each attentive yet inconspicuous. Things went so smoothly, we forgot they were there. We feel that is a sign of excellent staffing and team organization. We received no complaints.

Day of: setup and break down: the Zeffert and Gold team had to be flexible as rain was in the forecast for the outdoor cocktail hour, following the outdoor ceremony. They were prepared for all possibilities. In the reception area, tables were set up exactly as we discussed. Break down was efficient and again unobtrusive to the event.

We would definitely recommend Zeffert and Gold Catering and will not hesitate to use their services for future events.

Iris and her team were so helpful throughout the entire planning process for my August 16th wedding at the Evergreen Museum & Library. We did a tasting early on and then came back closer to the wedding date to finalize the linens, chairs, napkins, etc. Iris was so accommodating to our schedule and even agreed to meet with us on a Saturday morning at 8:30am! We received many comments after the wedding about the friendliness of the staff and quality of the food/drinks. The day of the wedding was sunny and beautiful, but Iris was more than willing to work out a special rainy day plan with us prior to the event in case it was needed. Overall, my husband, family, and I were very happy we decided to work with Zeffert & Gold for our special day!

Elaine and Justina were phenomenal—it was like having a caterer & event planner all in one. I had a small, DIY wedding in Fells Point and these ladies were a huge part of bringing it all together. They brought everything—food, tables, linens, serveware, water, ice—and took everything with them when they left. It was incredibly seamless and easy for me, I worried about nothing. Priceless.

The food! Incredible. My family is from the deep south, my husband's is from East Germany. Z&G really pulled it together with a German/Southern cuisine that delighted both sides of our family and really symbolized the melding of our cultures. We brought some of our own touches, including fresh fruit and dessert catered from another location, and they made a beautiful display for everything we brought in. My guests are still talking about the food!

I can't say enough about how wonderful, personal and accommodating Elaine and Justina were. They took the time to meet with us at the event space whenever we needed to go over details, and I could trust them 100% to make executive decisions in my absence as things came up. Justina even had a little bite and cocktails waiting for us after our ceremony :) They thought of everything that I couldn't have, and anticipated even the tiniest details. Thank you thank you to Elaine and Justina, their wonderful staff and chefs!

I worked with Iris at Zeffert and Gold in planning and execution of my wedding. She was extremely easy to work with and was open to any suggestions that I had to adapt the menu to my liking or set up a signature drink station at the bar. The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced! All of my guests that I've talked to raved about how great the food was. The settings were beautiful and the team was very efficient in the setup and tear down of the various stations. I highly recommend them!

Zeffert & Gold is the best! You would be foolish to chose a different catering company. From the very beginning Iris was wonderful to work with. She made it so easy to plan out everything! It was like having a wedding planner built into our catering! Amazing!! The food was beyond words fantastic, the professionalism of the staff was outstanding. Our guests raved about how quick the bartenders served them & how they knew what drink they were ordering before they even got to the front of the line! If you want a worry-free experience that is seamless from set up to breakdown, beautiful and delicious look no further than Zeffert & Gold.

We worked with Matt Gold and he was amazing. From setting up meetings/tastings that worked with my out of state schedule to coming up with great vegan friendly options. We received so many compliments from our guests regarding our food, and how is was far more than standard wedding food. I love that they worked with us to find out what we enjoyed, and then found ways to incorporate that in to our wedding. Such as the grilled cheese station that Matt helped me hide from my fiance.
It was an especially nice touch having Laureen serving us during our wedding. It allowed us to socialize with our guests while also insuring we would have some food. She also kept our drinks fresh and ensured that we didn't want for anything the entire night.
This is the second wedding Z&G has done for my family (SIL's was 3yrs ago) and I have a feeling they will be doing others as well.

The chef changed the menu, and even whipped a sauce right there durng the tasting, because I didn't care for the 1st one.

They were incredibly flexible and worked with us to incorporate menu items that were important to us and to keep costs down. Our tasting was wonderful and we enjoyed our food at the wedding.
The only downside was that our guests complained about service staff clearing drinks too quickly.
They deliver excellent value for the price and we recommend them.

We used the Celebrations (kosher catering) side of Zeffert and Gold and couldn't have been more pleased! We didn't want "typical" wedding food (chicken or salmon, etc). They did an amazing job working with us to create a unique experience. Everyone raved about the food and everyone is still talking about the cake - how it looked AND how it tasted (seriously, how often does that happen).

Monroe was great to work with, would say "sounds great" when I sent him quirky ideas, would make suggestions where he knew from his experience that things would go more smoothly, totally worked with me on the taste of the cake and even agreed to use a family recipe, and really just bent over backward to accomodate us. He also stayed in touch about information he needed, spoke directly with the guests with food allergies beforehand to make sure he completely understood their needs (!) and several people even noted that the servers were walking around with lists and table locations of people with food allergies. Plus, we got the leftovers to take home with us!

I can't say enough about them and the only reason I took off a half star on the quality is that they were a little slow in getting food to us (not the rest of the guests, but it was buffet-style so we had someone assigned to bring us food) - it took so long that we thought they forgot and my husband got up to get his own food). Aside from that, it was even better than I had hoped. My jaded husband told me nobody ever remembers the food or the cake, but he even agrees that in this case people just keep complimenting us on it and it is completely justified!

We only had the choice of a small number of vendors for our venue. Iris from Zeffert and Gold responded immediately and was extremely friendly. Of vendors I met with, Zeffert and Gold provided the best quote and were the most flexible. Iris responded quickly to all of my questions over the months and was very helpful. On the day of the wedding, Iris had to cook because the cook called out. We had many compliments from our guests about the food. My only concern was that there didn't seem to be anyone who was helping to follow the timeline that we had discussed with Iris. The buffet was out too long and we decided to forgo our father-daughter and mother-son dances which was a bit disappointing. There didn't seem to be much coordination of the caterer with the DJ, but we had an awesome night nonetheless! I would highly recommend Zeffert and Gold to any of my friends!

Iris Gold was an absolutely phenomenal person to work with! I was an out-of-town bride trying to plan my wedding long-distance. Iris exchanged over 100 emails with me (my gmail account kept track) to make everything go seamlessly. When we weren’t sure about one of the entrees, we were able to get a second tasting! Since I didn’t have much family in town, I was nervous I would need a planner. But with Iris, you get a caterer and a planner. When a decorative piece with candles that my mother-in-law bought for the candy buffet caught on fire, Iris quickly dealt with the situation and I didn’t even hear about it until the next day. I’m Indian and my fiancé is not and we wanted a wide variety of food that would appeal to all the guests. With 7 appetizers (including indian samosas, jerk chicken with pineapple curry sauce and Maryland crab dip), 3 entrees (a beef, a chicken and Moroccan vegetarian couscous), 2 vegetable dishes, cake and banana foster (which they make in front of you!) for desert, there was enough delicious variety for everybody, and that too at an affordable price. Even my difficult to please mother enjoyed the food. The food was delicious, the bar service phenomenal (the bartenders were really nice guys who knew every exotic drink recipe) and altogether Zeffert and Gold was my favorite vendor to work with.

Great food, great service, great price!
After doing the standard search, meetings and tastings with a hand-full of caterers my wife, Taryn and I realized a few things. The food must be fresh (no frozen hors d'oeuvres) and the price must be good. Zeffert and Gold met that criteria and in a big way. The customer service was outstanding and working out a menu to accommodate our financial needs was easy. When we had our final tasting I was blown away by how good the food was. Z&G staff was amazing at our wedding. They were friendly, courteous, helpful and incredibly thorough with all of the different jobs required of them. They made our wedding easy and delicious.

Zeffert and Gold was a dream to work with for my wedding this past August. The tasting experience was by far the best I had during my wedding planning process. They prepared a multitude of selections and provided healthy portions. The food was amazing, and we're still receiving compliments from the guests! From the tasting to the reception, the team was consistently professional and flexible. They also worked with a local baker and linen company so I wouldn't have to be concerned with the details. The only downfall would be responsiveness. Sometimes it would take a couple of days to get a question answered. Excellent job, and a special thanks to Aaron Gold.

From the first meeting to our actual wedding day Iris over at Zeffert and Gold was a pleasure to work with. She was professional, sweet, prompt, and accommodated late night meetings to discuss our event. It wasn't like working with some unknown face at a company, it was like working with someone who actually cared about our event and making it a success.

The food at our event was a big hit with the guests, which was important for us. Their menu isn't your cookie cutter wedding menu and they have lot's of choices so you can customize it to your liking. The staff at our event were professional and excellent to deal with as well.

We'd highly recommend them.

My fiance and I decided on 10/8 to get married on 11/14. Not many caterers responded to the call but of the 4 who did, Zeffert and Gold were standouts. They were competitively priced and actually gave better value for the money than the others - with a more complete menu AND a full service rental package (dishes, glasses, linens).

1. The food was incredibly good. My guests raved at the party, online on Facebook, in emails and phone calls for days afterwards. Many admitted to 2nd and 3rd helpings and we still had lots of food left over so I didn't have to cook the first few days after the wedding.
2. They worked magic within my budget; beef tenderloin AND teriyaki salmon that was to-die-for.
3. Elaine was my consultant; we were doing and in-home wedding and reception. She came to my house for a site review; Elaine was friendly, almost motherly, and had great suggestions and calming answers to my questions. She helped me come up with a short list of things that I could do to rearrange some of the seating to ensure my guests' comfort.
4. The team that came to the house was wonderful, getting set up quickly and efficiently. The bartender got set up so fast that he offered to help sweep/clear my front walk.
5. They did a beautiful job dressing the tables - one for hor d'oevres and one for the dinner buffet - using fall foliage garland and the aqua linens Elaine and I chose to compliment my home's decor.
6. The team was flexible with the schedule: hors d'oevres table and wine/soda 6-7 PM, facilitated a bread and wine blessing after the service, champagne passed around for a toast, dinner service followed by cake/dessert. (Dessert in addition to cake is a good idea! Folks adored the mini-key lime pies and mousse mice.
7. Laureen took good care of me and my husband; she made sure we each got a plateful of food and a place to sit and eat it.
8. The team took special care of my oldest guest (89) and my disabled guests, waiting on them personally; they even noted which guests I introduced as my boss or my husbands and went out of their way to ensure they were taken care of too.
9. They didn't rush anyone but packed up quickly and on time, leaving the house and garage (their staging area) very clean.


We were thrilled with the food, the service, the flexibilty and the friendliness of the wait staff. I am a professional project manager and I only wish that my project teams were as organized, efficient, effective, succesful and NICE as the staff from Zeffert and Gold.

My fiance and I decided on 10/8 to get married on 11/14. Not many caterers responded to the call but of the 4 who did, Zeffert and Gold were standouts. They were competitively priced and actually gave better value for the money than the others - with a more complete menu AND a full service rental package (dishes, glasses, linens).

1. The food was incredibly good. My guests raved at the party, online on Facebook, in emails and phone calls for days afterwards. Many admitted to 2nd and 3rd helpings and we still had lots of food left over so I didn't have to cook the first few days after the wedding.
2. They worked magic within my budget; beef tenderloin AND teriyaki salmon that was to-die-for.
3. Elaine was my consultant; we were doing and in-home wedding and reception. She came to my house for a site review; Elaine was friendly, almost motherly, and had great suggestions and calming answers to my questions. She helped me come up with a short list of things that I could do to rearrange some of the seating to ensure my guests' comfort.

Thank you Iris Gold...working with Zeffert and Gold was one of the best decisions we made! The food was delicious and the staff was a true pleasure to work with, very flexible and enthusiastic about our event. WE opted for a cocktail style reception, so no sit down dinner, which require Zeffert & Gold to be creative and timely with appetizers throughout the evening. further, as our main attraction was had them develop a mashed potato bar that received rave reviews!

The only complaint I have is that we were told we would have a plate of food from the wedding waiting in our hotel room after the event (the bride and groom don't get to eat...FYI!), which would have been wonderful and was something we were looking forward to, unfortunately it was not there at 1am when the festivities were over :(

Despite this, i would still highly recommend their services and feel that, based on comments about the food and our experience with the staff, this is one of the best caterers in town!

Zeffert and Gold was great to work with. They were super flexible and accomodating, since the guest count was smaller than what they usually work with, and gave me a great deal. They don't charge a cork fee nor a cake cutting fee, which is a huge plus. Iris is super fun and made me feel really comfortable.
I was a little disappointed with the food, as I had ordered off the middle eastern menu, and it was more an inspiration of, than actual, middle eastern food. I must admit, that I wasn't present during the tasting and my husband and his family are not familiar with it, so my disappointment is small. Also the vegetables were cold when served and I don't know if it just wasn't warmed up or it got cold, because we were running 30 minutes late...nonetheless the food was really good and the guests had only compliments, because it really was tasty.
The staff was super quick in set up and breakdown and had arranged everything like we wanted for the reception area.
The ceremony area was set up at the wrong place, even though they had a floor and location plan, and when I pointed it out, I was told that there was no time to re-arrange it. I was pretty passive about it, because I didn't want to upset myself, but it took the coordinator to get it re-arranged in the end.
The waiting staff was super friendly and really great with the guests and made sure there was always enough food, on the beautifully decorated buffet tables, and drinks available.
Zeffert and Gold is 100% recommendable and I'm certain, had I known beforehand about the food, they would have worked with me on some of the recipes.

Zeffert and gold was responsible for all of the food and beverages served at me and my husband's wedding. We chose to do a braziallian style dinner and the variety and taste of everything was amazing! All of our guests were impressed with what was served and enjoyed having the opportunity to have plenty of choices ;) I would highly recommend Zeffert and gold for all your catering needs. Just make sure to call in advance so you can have everything planned accordingly. They are good so their plate is always full ;)

We worked with Aaron Gold for our wedding. In our initial meeting, Aaron was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of good suggestions and recommendations for food and beverage. On the day of, the food was amazing and our guests told us how much they loved both the appetizers and the entrees. The staff on the day of was also very pleasant and provided great customer service.

The only complaint I would have is regarding responsiveness. I had sent a few photos of a cake design we wanted a few months before the wedding. However, I never received a response and we weren't able to get in touch with Aaron for our cake tasting until a few weeks before the wedding day. During the cake tasting, we were provided a book of cake designs we could choose from and Aaron had no recollection of the cake design we had sent multiple times. After a couple of back and forths, we were able to get our requested cake design for an extra fee. It would have been nice to have known all these details a few months prior to the wedding day when we originally requested the cake design. However, the cake turned out beautifully and was absolutely delicious. Overall we had a good experience and would recommend this caterer to other couples.
