Working with Monroe at Zeffert and Gold through their kosher catering division has been a dream! He is so responsive and attentive and my fiance and I are so excited to have his food at our wedding! He was able to provide us with so many different food options for both the cocktail hour and entree. He also gives great advice for wedding day coordination between vendors and put us at ease that everything will go smoothly on our wedding day.

So happy that Zeffert and Gold catered our wedding! We loved working with Iris and I can't imagine having anyone other than her as part of our wedding!

When I contacted Zeffert and Gold about their services, Iris was on the phone with me the very next day. From that first interaction I could tell this group was very experienced and would make sure our personal style and vision came through. No cookie-cutter caterers here!

Our wedding blended many cultures and we wanted our menu to reflect that. Iris sent us many menu options, which served as a great starting point to build our menu. We added many dishes not on their menu and they made it all happen. With the experiences of their chefs and our recipes from home, Zeffert and Gold made our personalized and eclectic menu a reality and with great execution.

Note: You must go to their tastings on an empty stomach...we were beyond stuffed! We brought both of ours moms, which proved to be a major source of frustration for me and my fiance, and Iris handled the peanut gallery with such grace. She was patient and everyone felt heard, but ultimately checked in with us to make sure we were getting what we wanted.

Over the course of the year, we stayed in close contact with Iris. She was a huge help with ideas and with each of our requests gave us the green light that "we can make that happen". They helped make this "our" wedding. We never felt forced to fit a mold or follow a formula - Zeffert and Gold really value making your dreams come true.

The week leading up to our wedding and on the big day, we definitely felt like we were Iris' priority. We had a rain scare and she was all over our plan B to be safe. And contrary to popular belief, we ate on our wedding day! Iris and her staff kept us hydrated and well fed all night long. Plus, Iris had food and cake packed up for our planners to deliver to the hotel room. What a great way to end the night!

MATT IS THE BEST!!! He is so easy to work with and very responsive and helpful. He works hard to make sure everything is to your preferences. Justine was phenomenal during the reception! We were starving by the time we finished photos and she was right there waiting for us in the bridal-party suite. The second I started to look for something, she came right over to make sure everything was okay. She also made sure our parents were attended to the entire night. The entire team provided amazing service down to warm well wishes as they were packing up the trucks after everything ended.
The food was a perfect reflection of our tastes and our guests raved about it! Everything was incredible, but the crab-dip, mini-shrimp tacos and bacon-wrapped scallops were my absolute favorites. As mentioned in other comments, the leftover plates are everything! We didn’t get a chance to eat much of our dinners, but having a meal to heat up once you finally catch your breath is a lifesaver. Z&G is amazing and I couldn’t ask for a better caterer!

I honestly can't think of one negative comment about Matt and Zeffert & Gold. Matt was so easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my questions leading up the event. In planning our menu, they have a wide selection to chose from and can also make special requests. Matt was very helpful in assisting us with finalizing our menu by suggesting some of the hors deuvres and entrees he thought Z&G did best (and he was right- the food was amazing!). Based on my conversations and meetings with Matt, I was comfortable and not stressed at all leading up to our big day. Everything went perfectly! Matt and his staff were very professional and attentive to our guests and they were especially attentive to myself, my husband, and our parents. They constantly checked in to see if we needed anything and made sure to bring us plates of the hors dourves and desserts. The food was incredible, we heard nothing but amazing comments from our guests. We can't thank Zeffert & Gold enough for making our wedding day perfect!

Choosing Zeffert and Gold as our caterer for our Baltimore Museum of Industry wedding reception was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made! We were thrilled with our experience from start to finish. We wanted food stations for our reception, and Zeffert and Gold offered plenty of options to choose from at very reasonable prices. We loved working with Matt during the entire planning process. He was so accommodating, responded to emails promptly, helped us evaluate all of our options, shared cost saving tips, and provided valuable input even on matters unrelated to food, such as layout, timeline, decor, etc. On the actual wedding day, Matt greeted us the moment we stepped out of the limo with drinks in hand. He checked in throughout the evening to make sure that everything was running according to plan, and also kept us to our timeline so we didn't have to worry about that at all. All of the servers were so friendly and efficient, especially Pat, who attended to us throughout the night, making sure we had a drink whenever we wanted and could try all of the food we had selected. The food itself was phenomenal, and our family and friends are still raving about it! We were very excited at the end of the night when Matt handed us a care package of leftovers to enjoy the next day. We are so grateful to Zeffert and Gold for making our wedding reception such a beautiful and carefree event. They exceeded all of our expectations, and we would work with them again in a heartbeat!

One of the best choices my daughter and her then-fiance made in their wedding planning was picking Zeffert and Gold as their caterer. The company was truly a delight to work with—Matt Gold was extremely responsive, had great ideas, and made every effort to provide an elegant and delectable experience at the most reasonable possible cost.

The company staffed the event well, and everyone who was there did their job competently and unobtrusively. The preparation and clean-up stages went very smoothly, and the food was absolutely delicious. Thanks in large part to Zeffert and Gold, our guests had a wonderful time and we got exceptionally high-quality food and service at an affordable price.

Zeffert & Gold was the best choice for our wedding caterer. From the beginning, they were responsive, extremely flexible, and they took great care of us. Iris Gold was our direct contact and she was fun, creative and truly worked to make our selections what we wanted. She went all-out for our tasting by decorating it as if it were our reception, and she allowed both my husband's parents and my parents to join. They worked with us when we needed to add things to our order last minute such as our cake and chair bows. They helped with my timeline and anything else that I needed. To this day, all of our guests are still raving about the appetizers! The staff was very attentive the day-of, served my husband and I drinks as we were making our "Thank You" rounds, washed out our personal champagne glasses, and ensured that everything was packed up and ready to go at the end. They had food/drinks waiting for us when we arrived at the reception venue after getting pictures taken and then they prepared a basket of food and had it waiting in our suite after the reception was over. Iris was a joy to work with and felt more like a friend than a vendor. I have already recommended them to others and would absolutely use them again for any future catering needs.

My wife and I could not be happier with our decision to have Zeffert and Gold cater our special day. They did an amazing job setting everything up, coordinating the event, and helping us maintain a timeline throughout the night! On top of all of that, the food and quality of service was truly amazing. To the staff of Z&G -- thank you for helping to make our wedding an amazing night!

Working and communicating with Matt prior to the event was a seamless process. Matt was always quick to respond to our emails, and was extremely patient, kind, and knowledgeable about all facets of the wedding process. He went above and beyond to make us happy, and was always quick to point us to alternative solutions if he could not provide a particular service. Most of all, my wife and I appreciated that Matt (and Z&G) are not about the "nickel and diming" process that so many other wedding vendors partake in.

I highly recommend Zeffert and Gold to anyone in the greater Baltimore area! They provide an amazing service, have a top notch team, and everything comes at a very reasonable price!

Zeffert and Gold catered for our wedding reception at the World Trade Center in Baltimore and I can honestly say I made the best choice. After we met with Iris and had a food tasting, I cancelled all of our other caterer appointments, knowing right away that Zeffert and Gold was the perfect choice. I loved the fact that they give you one upfront price that includes everything and their packages include so much more than other caterers.

They're extremely flexible and will prepare meals according to your requests and even recipes. Also, Iris and Don (the main chef for our event) were so much more than caterers. They were also like wedding coordinators. They went beyond what they needed to do. The food was beautifully presented. All of our guests raved about the food, especially the Fajita Station and Teriyaki Glazed Salmon, and were going back for second and third servings.

I also recommend going with one of their alcohol packages. We originally planned to bring our own alcohol, but ultimately decided to add one of the alcohol packages from Zefferet and Gold to make things simpler, which Iris kindly allowed us to do even though it was two weeks prior to our reception. Their alcohol packages were very reasonably priced and Iris made modifications according to my requests. One last thing I'd like to add is that they were very generous with the alcohol, unlike a lot of other weddings I've been to where they water down the drinks. This is not the case with Zeffert and Gold and our guests were very pleased with their drinks.
