I cannot recommend Zeffert and Gold enough! Matt was so easy to work with during the planning process. He responded to e-mails almost immediately and was so accomodating. The day of services were more than we could have asked for. I got to the venue expecting to thave to delegate and help set up only to find that everything was already done. After the ceremony Matt made sure that my husband and I had drinks while we were taking photos and he even had plates made up from cocktail hour so we could eat all of the delicious food we had been looking forward to for months! Our guests raved about the food (especially the crab dip!) and everything went so smoothly as a result to their attention to detail. They even made sure we had food to take with us to the hotel, all boxed up and waiting for us in the limo! If you are on the fence, go with Zeffert and Gold. You won't be disappointed!

Zeffert and Gold recently catered our wedding at the Enoch Pratt Library and we were absolutely thrilled with every aspect of working with them. We met with Iris many months beforehand and she treated us like family, assuring that everything would be done to perfection for our special day. In the months leading up to the wedding, she was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had and even offered valuable advice based on past experience, fulfilling the role of not just a caterer, but also an event planner. The chefs cooked a perfect meal to our choosing and were even able to impress our many vegan guests with the entree they prepared especially for them. Friends and family are still raving about the quality of the food and the service provided. We worked with Don on the day of our wedding to ensure that our other vendors were able to get into the venue and set up and he was equally as wonderful - making sure that everything went flawlessly. Iris was on-site during the entire ceremony and reception and occasionally checked in with us throughout the evening to be sure that we were taken care of. Everyone involved was just so very accommodating to us and our guests. I really cannot say enough good things about Zeffert and Gold. I knew from the very first moment that we walked into their office for an initial consultation that they would be a perfect fit for us and they went above and beyond all expectations! I will be recommending them to everyone I know in the future.

I worked with Iris Gold and her staff for my wedding. Iris was absolutely fantastic, always responding to my emails and providing great advice on everything leading up to the wedding. She made everything in the wedding process so easy and enjoyable, from the tastings to the walk-through. All of the food at the tasting was so delicious that it made it really hard to decide what to go with.

The wedding day itself was everything we imagined and more. Iris and her staff did everything that I asked to make the image that I had in my mind a reality. I didn’t have a wedding coordinator, but everything went perfectly under Iris’ supervision.

We had a kosher wedding and the food was amazing; we really enjoyed it and our guests did too. The food was the best food at a wedding that I've ever had. The staff made sure that we had plenty to eat by stopping by multiple times and bringing food to our table. We did everything buffet-style and with 175 guests I was worried that there would be long lines to get the food. However, I was reassured that this would not be the case and it there were no long lines on the wedding day.

If you are having a wedding in the Baltimore-area, look no further and go with Zeffert and Gold. You will not be disappointed!

I worked directly with Aaron Gold for my daughter's wedding. He helped me through the planning process, provided suggestions for venues, and managed all of the necessary rentals. He was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, and I didn't have to worry about a thing on the wedding day. He and his staff were very professional, catered to our every need, and provided very efficient service. The food was amazing! From bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp tostadas to crab dip, crab cakes and beef cabernet -- everything was delicious! Locals can be very critical related to our Maryland crab cakes, but our guests were very complimentary! I highly recommend Zeffert and Gold!

if you're looking for a wedding caterer in maryland, stop looking and hire z&g. we worked with matt for our wedding in baltimore on 10/11 and can't say enough about them. matt and the entire team were absolutely incredible, not just with the food and the food service, but top to bottom, every single part of the day that we needed help with, they were absolutely excellent.

that's not to say the food wasn't spectacular -- it was. they provided some of the best crabcakes we've ever had, which is a high bar to clear in baltimore, and that's in addition to a fantastic menu that was creative and delicious. our guests were extremely impressed.

but i also feel like a lot of caterers can make excellent food -- what sets z&g apart is the tremendous service. without matt's help i have no idea how our wedding would have gone off -- professional, personable, generous with his time, total A+ experience across the board. have these guys cater your wedding, i don't know how else to put it.

I wish I could give Zeffert and Gold more than 5 stars. We worked with Matt Gold specifically, and he patiently helped us throughout the entire process. He was always very responsive over email and phone, and went above and beyond to make our day exactly how we wanted. Sean and I are both very detail-oriented and Type A, and Matt was able to truly blow us away with the reception set-up, staff, and of course the delicious food. I remember on the day of the wedding we were both looking around and saying to each other "This is perfect".

We would not have changed anything about our wedding, and we really appreciated the special touches Matt and his staff gave us -- for example, making sure we were always ready with a drink in hand, fixing my dress as I walked down the aisle, and the amazing "to-go" basket of food that Matt fixed for my husband and I to take with us that night.

Our glasses and bellies were full that night, but more importantly, our hearts were full. Matt and his staff dealt with some random issues throughout the process, and his staff managed to set up an INCREDIBLE reception room that went above and beyond my expectations.

We will be recommending Z&G to all of our friends, who kept gushing about how great the food was. The presentation of the food was gorgeous, and every single appetizer and entree was raved about by the guests.

Also, I should note how personable and kind the staff was. Everyone was a joy to work with and seemed happy to be there. They were bringing us drinks all night, helping me in the bathroom with my dress, and just overall seemed to CARE about their jobs. Matt and his staff -- thank you!!! -- we could not have had the spectacular wedding we did without you.

We worked with Elaine from Zeffert & Gold because my sister had used them for her wedding and recommended we use them as well based on their experience. We were not disappointed! Elaine worked with us to create a custom menu and was extremely knowledgeable about how things should flow and gave us some great insight as we planned. The food was exactly what we wanted and they did an amazing job. All of the servers were professional and courteous the night of as well. We were incredibly pleased and would highly recommend them.

Zeffert and Gold catered for us at our wedding at the Howard County Conservancy.

Though many parts of our wedding planning was stressful, all of our dealings with Zeffert and Gold were outstanding. Through the entire process they showed a willingness to communicate, were kind, courteous, and professional, and even rolled with the punches when we had to adjust and tweak a few things here and there.

At the wedding itself, they were in similarly fine form. After we'd said our vows and were sneaking off to take photos, a wonderful Z&G employee was ready and waiting with chilled alcohol to help calm our nerves - little touches like this were what helped made the day go off without a hitch for my wife and I, something we thought would be nearly impossible with all the moving pieces we had in place - they even stalled the breakdown of the appetizer station so that once everyone had filtered off to the reception hall, we had a chance to quickly stuff our faces and get some energy back between more photos and schmoozing!

What can I say about the food, other than it was outstandingly delicious? I could have taken a bath and lived in the crab dip, the pear and Gorgonzola ravioli is to die for, as was every dish and appetizer they provided. They were even kind enough to wrap us up some extras to take home, realizing that the bride and groom don't often get quite as much time with the delicious food they paid for as they'd prefer - another amazing touch.

If you're having a wedding in Baltimore, Columbia, or the surrounding area, you need to consider Zeffert and Gold as one of your best choices. We went into our wedding day just waiting for something to go wrong, but instead, everyone went above and beyond the call of duty, and our wedding day was positively wonderful as a result.

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!
