Zeffert & Gold catered our wedding, and we cannot recommend them highly enough to do them justice. We heard that food is the thing people will remember most about a wedding, so we interviewed four different caterers around Baltimore to find the best one for our wedding. Of the four we interviewed, we found Zeffert & Gold to be the best in each and every one of our evaluation criteria: taste of food, professionalism, flexibility, and service. Our guests raved about how good the food tasted, including those with dietary restrictions, and the food and drink service was incredible. We were personally blown away by how well Zeffert & Gold’s staff took care of us before and during the wedding as well, making sure we and our wedding party were personally attended to and had enough to eat (and drink) on our special day. Any couple lucky enough to book Zeffert & Gold for their wedding caterer is in for a delicious and impressive experience.

Worked with my manager Ben to plan my wedding. OMG he was so great! Cute too. If it weren't for planning things with my hubby and I maybe I woulda asked him out hehehe jk They were great top to bottom and it really took a huge weight off our shoulders having a reliable company during our wedding.

Give them your money and don't bother consdering anyone else. Seriously, Zeffert & Gold is absolutely incredible. We worked with Matt Gold and he made our wedding absolutely perfect. His attention to detail and responsiveness to any question or concern made the whole process virtually stress-free. The food and service during the wedding was impeccable. Multiple guests commented how the food was memorable for them. I cannot recommend Zeffert & Gold enough to anyone needing catering of any sort.

If you do not choose Zeffert and Gold for your event you are making a wrong decision! From the first e-mail to Matt requesting an appointment to the time he said goodbye the night of our wedding he was with us the entire step of the way. After we met with Matt the first time we knew right away that he was the caterer for us. His food at the wedding tasted exactly like the food we tasted months before and was SO DELICIOUS! Matt and his team were so helpful the day of our wedding and made sure that everything ran as smooth as they could. Lorinda took charge of taking care of my husband and I as well as my parents to make sure we always had food to eat and a drink in our hand. We will, without a doubt, hire Zeffert and Gold again!

The team at Zeffert & Gold create amazing flavors. Truly a wonderful experience! Highly recommend their moith watering cuisine. P.s. Vegetable lasgna a must!

Lindsay Roemer

Choosing Zeffert and Gold as our caterer was the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. The food was OUTSTANDING! Everyone kept raving about how good the dinner and apps were and many guests said that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding! Working with Matt and Jayne was a wonderful experience. They had a quick answer for every question that we had (and they were very patient with us--we had a lot of questions!) and they helped us design the layout of the reception room and cocktail hour in the best way possible. Their level of professionalism, flexibility and kindness blew me away. Jayne was with us on the day of the wedding and she was so comforting! I didn't have a bridal party and having Jayne there really felt like I had a good friend with me right before I walked down the aisle--she even helped with unbustling and arranging my dress before I walked into the ceremony. And Laurene was a staff person who took care of my husband and I all night--she had appetizers and drinks waiting for us after the ceremony so we could have a few minutes alone to relax before the reception. And she made sure we always had a fresh drink in our hands AND she reminded us several times to make sure to sit down and eat our dinner so we'd have some energy! We really appreciated her taking care of us! Jayne, Matt, Laurene and all of the other Z&G staff with whom we worked truly made us feel so special and we greatly appreciated everything that they did for us leading up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding. They even packed us up a basket of food to take with us after the wedding! If I could give them more than 5 stars I would!

Zeffert & Gold catered our wedding and they were amazing. From day 1 it was clear that making our wedding the best it could be was their top priority. The communication was top notch; they kept us updated about deadlines and listened to our concerns and suggestions as the wedding approached. Whenever we sent an email, we got a response the same day. They even incorporated a few family recipes into our menu which was a nice touch. On the day of the wedding, the staff went above and beyond. The set-up was perfect, and everything was done on time. The staff was extremely friendly as well. Several guests told us that the staff asked how they were doing and if they needed anything. Every bartender was smiling, made conversation, poured good drinks, and remembered drink orders from round to round. And perhaps most importantly, the food was outstanding. We loved everything that was prepared and received nothing but compliments from our guests. Choosing a caterer is an important decision for any large event. We couldn’t have made a better decision than using Zeffert & Gold and we’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for easy planning, a professional staff, and incredible food.

I really can't say enough about Zeffeet & Gold. I am so impressed with this company. First off the food is over the top fabulous, it speaks for itsel.. When the bride and groom actually look foward to their meal and eat and enjoy their meal. That is a sentiment in itself! The company staff down to the serving staff are so polite, accommodating and down right gracious to everyone.

Hilary Wiseman

Zeffert & Gold took care of feeding our guests at our Sunday fall wedding. From our first conversation with Matt Gold we knew we had found the right people. Matt was incredibly friendly and professional, he was upfront and transparent about pricing and never tried to upsell us or add unwanted/unneeded items. On the day of the Zeffert & Gold staff was incredibly attentive and detail oriented. More than one person told me they were too full from appetizers and dinner to get into the desserts (and our desserts were good so that is really saying something about the food). We provided our own alcohol and the Z&G bartenders were great about not opening bottles unnecessarily so that we had the maximum amount possible to return. They worked flawlessly with our other vendors. I have no hesitation with recommending Zeffert & Gold, they kept us well fed while maintaining an incredible level of service for a great value.

Casey Green

Most affordable, most accommodating, best service, best food and drink in town!

Carol Privitera

I will admit the presentation of the food was lovely. But then we must talk about the quality of the food at the Truong Watson wedding. We were supposed to have chicken Chesapeake which was no more than a small piece of chicken with bread stuffing.Now being a very close friend of the bride side I was told that we were having champagne during the hors d’oeuvres hour which there was no champagne. The wait staff were giving us wine. Appetizers were OK but for being out in the sun I don’t suggest serving cold cuts. And I saw no one offered lobster Mac and cheese. I do wish the food tastings and the food at the wedding were equal. It’s sad that people are presented one thing and then served another.

Ivete Cerqueira

i just like to say that, it was the best service I had in the last 10 years. Wonderful food, excelente service. each person on the staff was perfect, attentive to details, absolutely professional, very nice to my guests. Each guest without an exception had wonders to say about the service and the food, which made my party a GRAND experience. Thank you very much, Ivete Cerqueira

From the beginning Iris Gold made sure my wife and I were at ease and that she was going to help us have the wedding of our dreams. The ideas, help and support that zeffert and gold provided were top notch. Then the tasting... where to begin....everything was delicious and made fresh for us. It was pretty much like dinner a 5 star dinner with the best food variety you could imagine. We would have picked a bit of everything if we could, unfortunately the budget did not allow for that. Fortunately Iris was great at assisting us in choosing a good variety of dishes without forcing her opinion on us which we really appreciated! The ceremony and reception were exactly what my wife and I had wanted and Z&G played a massive part in this. The food, service, table settings and everything that Z&G did was 100%, not a beat missed. We had so many compliments about the food, which only says one thing! Thank you Zeffert and Gold for making our wedding night perfect. Keep up the great work!

Adam Miller

Zeffert and Gold catered my wedding and it was absolutely amazing. We went in not really knowing what we wanted, but just knowing we wanted good, fresh food. Matt was our event planner and he sat down with us and their chef and just created this amazing menu. We went back three weeks later to taste the food...OHH MY GOD was the food good. Then on our wedding day I was so busy and never thought I would have a chance to eat. They had one of their service staff take care of me and my wife the entire night. She even kept bringing me food so that I would remember to eat. It was exactly as I remembered from the tasting. To top it all off they packed us a basket to take back to the hotel room that night. It was so great to have this food to eat when we got back to the room, what a life saver. What more can I say? Zeffert and Gold was more than a caterer. They were like family, friends, who made my wedding worry free and ensured that we had the most delicious food that any of my guests had ever eaten. I now know that four of my friends who were at the wedding have already decided to use them at their wedding! Thank god I get to eat the food again. Love Love Love!

Brooke Stevens

They catered my friends wedding at the BMI and it was great. They took such good care of my friend (the bride) and all of the bridesmaids. First time that I was in a wedding and actually got to eat and drink. I will be using them for my wedding.

Robin Bair

Matt Gold was incredibly helpful during the planning of my daughter's wedding. He went far beyond the call of duty as a caterer and was always available to answer my questions about anything wedding-related because he is in the wedding industry and has a lot of experience. He was so helpful that I came to consider him a trusted a member of my daughter's wedding planning team! On the wedding day, the food was extraordinary! Several guests (including the photographer who attends a lot of weddings) said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! My husband and I completely agreed! When it's time to hire a caterer for our next daughter's wedding, we will absolutely be using them again!

Erin McDougal

Working with Iris and staff at Zeffert and Gold was truly one of the highlights of our wedding. We wanted a very specific menu (Italian and Maryland influences) and they totally delivered, even trying new recipes for us to consider for the event. Their staff are down to earth, flexible, and very pleasant - it was a joy to work with them. And of course, the food was plentiful and delicious! My guests could not stop talking about how amazing everything tasted. Iris even came up to my parents and parents-in-law several times throughout the night to make sure everything was to their liking. Even beyond the food (which really, was superb), Iris was an amazing partner in coordinating my wedding, helping to set out the decor, giving us advice on how to design the space, going above and beyond to keep us within budget, and packing up the leftovers for us to take home. We were blown away by the quality of food and service. Our wedding would not have been as successful if we were not working with Iris. She and the rest of Zeffert and Gold are incredible. You should book them!!

Christine Pappas

The Zeffert & Gold team did two of our biggest events over our Alumni Weekend - one for 90+ people and one for 300+ people . The food was delicious and the service was fabulous. Everything was smooth from start to finish. I will recommend them in the future!

Patrick Stakem

We meet Matt from Zeffert and Gold at an open house for our venue; from the first moment we meet Matt we knew that Zeffert and Gold was going to be our catering vendor. He was very open and honest about wedding catering and he did not hesitate to give a ballpark estimate of price before we signed a contract; truly no-pressure in all respects. Zeffert and Gold was the most competitively priced caterer from our required vendor list and the food was incredible. I pulled the chef aside at the wedding and specifically told him that the food at the event tasted exactly the same way it did during the tasting at their facility. Matt was friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. The prices were reasonable, the staff was very professional, and everything exceeded expectations. Highly recommended.

Zeffert and Gold was one of the best choices my wife and I made when we chose our vendors for our wedding. We worked primarily with Matt, and he was exceptionally accommodating and helpful throughout the entire planning process. When I requested a specific beer two days before the wedding date, knowing that such a last minute request might not be able to be fulfilled, Matt stepped up and ensured that we had the beer in hand on my wedding day and that a special stock was kept aside for my wife and I. In regards to service on our wedding day, Zeffert and Gold's team led by Jess was beyond exceptional. Jess constantly checked in with my wife and I to make sure we had food to eat and a drink in hand so we could spend more time mingling with our guests. And when my wife's dress had a minor malfunction, Jess helped my wife get her dress repaired quickly so she could get back out on the dance floor. Jess and her team ensured that we had a stress free and fantastic wedding reception. As far as the food goes, you're likely going to hear from multiple people that you're not going to even remember the food you had on your wedding day, but if you go with Zeffert and Gold, I assure you that will not be the case. Between the appetizers and the main meal, my wife and I have both casually mentioned to each other since our wedding day that we'd kill to enjoy them again. For vegetarians and vegans, they offered a Vegan Crab Cake that was so good, I *almost* contemplated getting that instead of the beef tenderloin. The food was that good. Bar service was also top notch and as mentioned, they made sure to have specific beers on hand even though I made the request close to last minute. We greatly enjoyed having Zeffert and Gold cater our wedding, and I would not hesitate to recomend them. Thanks so much guys!

For the third year in a row, Zeffert & Gold rocked the BMI's annual Bull Roast. The party was flawless thanks to Matt Gold and his attentive and professional staff! It looked great, ran without a hitch, and the food was fabulous. Working with Zeffert & Gold is a true pleasure!

Matt Gold was an absolute pleasure to work with. Our wedding guests raved about the food and Matt made the entire process so easy. I cannot recommend Zeffert and Gold enough for wedding catering.

Zach Salzberg

Of all of our wedding vendors, I can say without doubt that Matt and his team at the Celebrations branch of Zeffert and Gold were the best! Here's a list of all the amazing reasons why you should hire Zeffert and Gold for your affair: • They know their stuff: They make sure they thoroughly know the venue, they listen to what you want and are able to make the best recommendations for room set up, food choices, scheduling, etc. We worked together as a team to figure out what made the most sense for our event. Other vendors we worked with did not have that team mentality, but Matt could not have been more knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. • They're super organized: We never had to worry about Matt and team having all the details straight. They had everything organized and handled everything for us. Matt even helped us line up to process out for the ceremony - again, he had everything under control. And no detail was left unturned. • The food is delicious: You never really expect a meal cooked in bulk to be that great, but everyone RAVED about the food. The portions were large and people were so satisfied by how everything tasted - from the cocktail hour through to dinner and dessert. • The Yihud set up was fantastic: We had requested we have a couple of the cocktail menu items in the yihud so that we could grab a quick bite alone between the ceremony and reception....we got a full spread! We had a sampling of every appetizer - enough for us both - got to try everything and were plenty full when we left the yihud room. • The servers are awesome: Not only were the servers efficient, but they also were so nice and pleasant to work with. Everyone had a smile on their face the whole night. When myself (the bride) saw the servers at the end of the night, I was met by hugs and congratulations. If you want a worry-free wedding/event, you should without a doubt go with Zeffert and Gold. Best decision we made!

We selected Zeffert and Gold to cater our wedding, and Matt Gold was our primary point of contact during the run-up to the event. On the day of, Jess mostly took care of us. They were both extremely helpful and accomodating with requests big and small; in fact, I can't think of anything we asked them for that they didn't immediately help us out with. The food was excellent, which I can attest to because they were so good about making sure to serve us a portion of almost everything. The only thing I didn't get to try was the Thai curry, which my father and several vegetarian guests swear was excellent. As the event wound down, they supplied us with a huge helping of leftovers that fed us throughout the week. The staff were all great as well, from what I could tell. If I could think of anything negative to say I would, just to add credibility; but in spite of a torrential downpour and other hiccups, Z&G was perfect throughout. I suppose that to me, as someone who has never thrown a wedding before, they initially seemed expensive; but after comparing them to other options in the area they were actually very reasonable. So there, that's my negative: "Zeffert and Gold: more expensive than not having a wedding at all." But if you're going to have a catered wedding or other event in the Baltimore area, just call Z&G.

Amazing experience!! Food, service, professionalism, all beyond our expectations!! My husband and I were blown away by Zeffert and Gold's service on our wedding day (July 20th, 2019). Multiple guests commented on how wonderful the food and service is. It was a fine dining experience and everyone could see how professional Zeffert and Gold's team was. Jayne (who was in charge of the day-of service team) really went above and beyond. She answered all of our requests promptly and handled everything that came her way. Because of Zeffert's team, we were able to truly enjoy our wedding and not worry about a thing. We also researched a dozen of catering company beforehand and got quotes from all of them. For Zeffert, you really get the most out of your money spent. Matt was wonderful from the beginning!! His response was prompt and extremely helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. In short, we truly appreciated working with Zeffert and Gold and would definitely recommend them to newlyweds!!

Kelli Gerding

If I could give 10 stars, I would. Matt and his team were extremely professional catering my wedding and made the entire planning process and day of stress-free. I didn't have to worry about the details because he made it easy to trust his team of experts. Food, service and staff was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend!

Felicia Johnson

They are the best caterers in Maryland. Food was delicious and customer service was amazing. I was worried the price was too good to be true when looking at it compared to other caterers, but it was all inclusive and so many options without a cost for upgrades. If you don't use them you are truly missing out.

I used Zeffert & Gold for a drop-off boxed lunch while we were touring around Baltimore. From start to finish, the experience was great: Matt (my sales contact) was very responsive and helpful as we changed our headcount a number of times. On the day of the event, we had to change our drop-off location to accommodate our schedule and Matt was quick to respond to my request. The delivery arrived early to the new location as if it were according to the original schedule. The delivery staff, Matt and Pat, were also very nice and efficient in moving the boxes into the under-bus storage. Even more, they sorted the boxes by the sandwich type and each box also come with a sticker corresponding to the sandwich type. Personally, I had a vegetarian box and it was delicious! I was left full and content. As a meeting planner, I would absolutely recommend Z&G to a colleague!

We are thrilled with our experience with Z&G. We worked with Matt, who was responsive, creative, and worked to accommodate our vision in the best way possible. There were so many food options it was hard to pick- but our guests loved everything we chose. We even got to create our own 'honeymoon station' which had Italian and Greek food, inspired by our honeymoon trip. The day of, Z&G staff worked tirelessly to make sure everything was perfect, and especially ensured that the bride and groom ate, and never went without a drink in our hands! We cannot recommend you guys enough- our guests are still raving about cocktail hour...

Zeffert and Gold is an amazing boutique catering company. They will work with you to create an event that exceeds your expectations but does not break the bank. Highly Recommend!

Eloise Bralove

Best caterer in the area. Have used for multiple events and always exceeds expectations and doesn’t break the bank.

Frank Teehan

The BEST caterer in Maryland. They did full service event planning for our large (800 person) corporate event at our company headquarters. They took care of all rentals, entertainment, decor, and logistics and delivered such delicious food, which was presented better than we have ever experienced at any of our other events. If you want the best, definitely go with this outfit.

Michelle Bennett

Elliot Glotfelty

Excellent vendor and delivered everything beyond expectations for our wedding. Everyone loved the food!

Garry Cohen

Zeffert and Gold catered my daughter's wedding. From the pre-planning all the way through the big day, their professionalism, customer service, not to mention the delicious food was all first-rate. My wife and I couldn't be happier with them and should the need arise, will certainly use them again for our next affair.

Jamie Hart

5 stars is not enough. Food was the #1 concern for our wedding- we love it and it had to be perfect. One month later, guests are STILL talking about how this was THE BEST WEDDING FOOD they have ever had. Jayne and Matt were the absolute best to work with. I honestly, don't feel I have enough space here to give a proper review. From the moment we had our INCREDIBLE tasting, to the moment we were handed tons of food to take home and enjoy after our wedding- my now husband and I were their top priority. The staff was incredible- I must've turned around 20+ times during the night and had a server there with water or a drink for me. Every guest was well attended, the food was beyond delicious. I will be using Zeffert and Gold for ANY event I will host in the future and if you are a bride / groom reading this- I would gladly book them again for my wedding- worth EVERY cent and then some! So well done- thank you all SO SO VERY much for the most wonderful night of our lives so far.
