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.

Zeffert and Gold catered our wedding at Swan Harbor Farm- Iris was amazing from start to finish! Iris was great with making recommendations for our outdoor summer wedding menu, and incredibly accomodating with my mom's special requests for the big day. On the day of the wedding every detail was taken care of, and the food was amazing! The cocktail hour was a huge success- from the oyster bar (which looked PERFECT) to all of the passed hors d'oeuvres, I heard nothing but compliments on the food! It was great knowing that all the details were taken care of on the day of the wedding.. I would highly recommend Iris and Zeffert and Gold for any wedding :)

Great experience and great food. They worked with us to create something that wasn't on their list of entree options and still stayed in our budget. I had heard that they were on the more expensive side when I started calling around the different caterers that my venue allowed but decided to call anyway and they ended up being in my budget while still offering a very expensive seeming presentation. Great team to work with and stepped in to help with various tasks outside the scope of their responsibility on the day of the wedding.

BOOK THEM, BOOK THEM NOW!
Zeffert and Gold was amazing--especially Iris! We reached out early this year to plan our catering with Iris and she was super helpful and responsive. We wanted to try something different and Iris was totally on board--we did breakfast for dinner! We had such a great experience with Iris throughout the entire planning process. She made us feel so comfortable and took care of more than we can have ever imagined. We also did a tasting and final logistics walk-through with Iris and the venue which was SUPER helpful.

Our ceremony and cocktail hour were both outside--it was actual over 100 degrees. The staff did an amazing job keeping everyone hydrated! No one passed out!! Immediately after the ceremony, one of the staff brought us (bride and groom) a drink and one of each of the h'orderves from cocktail hour...clutch.

For cocktail hour, we had two kinds of deviled eggs, crudites, fruit skewers, and crostinis. They were all delightful! We also worked with a popsicle vendor to come in and Iris was totally cool with it--and used them for one of her own events!

We were able to pop upstairs to the reception area a little early (Iris's suggestion) and they served us each a full plate of food! So awesome and again, crazy helpful--if not for that, we probably wouldn't have eaten.

For the reception, we did chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, two kinds of quiche--one with crab, potatoes, bacon, yogurt, fruit, etc--we also had a fruity salad. I'm pretty sure every single person we heard from at the wedding raved about the food. The staff was so nice and helpful the entire day at the wedding. Literally everything was thought of and taken care of, it was incredible and helped a very stressed bride and groom. :)

I could not recommend Zeffert and Gold more. They were simply amazing and made our wedding so special and awesome!! They totally made the day--we're still hearing about the breakfast from friends & fam!

Matt Gold and his team were amazing!!! They were SO flexible and accommodating and able to handle last minute requests with ease while also providing some practical advice. We ended up doing stations, and the presentation and feel of the room made the decision worth it. Our guests could not stop gushing about how good the food was and how friendly the staff were. Overall, it was a great experience start to finish and I really enjoyed working with Matt. He was friendly, easy going and knew what he was doing, and made sure that my husband and I were fed and happy. He and his team also endured sweltering temperatures with no complaints... It was certainly the hottest day of the year. They also have a great reputation and are well known with other vendors in the area making them incredibly knowledgeable on all things wedding. I would most certainly recommend Zeffert and Gold to anyone for an event.

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!

Zeffert and Gold was EXQUISITE, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND using them. It's an investment that you'll surely not regret!! Monroe and his Staff were so accommodating and kind to us and all of our guests. We chose a buffet style dinner of: Salmon, Beef short ribs. Stuffed chicken breast, roasted potatoes and green beans. For our cocktail hour we chose: fruit and cheese platters, crab dip and meatballs. All of foods were served hot, including every buffet item and EVERYTHING was just as delicious on our Wedding day as it was at our scheduled tasting. It's 27 days since our Wedding day and we're STILL getting compliments on our Wedding, Zeffert and Gold's staff and our very delicious food. We have heard so many times "That's the best Wedding food that I've ever had", "That salmon was so good", "That crab dip and those meatballs", and "Those short ribs were ridiculously tender". Trust me the list goes on and on. One of our guests said he had a dream about the meatballs and crab dip-No Joke! ???? Thanks to my Aunt Joyce who highly recommended Monroe Zeffert and the Zeffert and Gold team to us for our Big day. After the tasting, we were SOLD. And yes, we tried other places before them. We are lifetime clients now and will use and refer them for all future events! With Heartfelt Love and Gratitude -The Pierce's ??

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!
