Our only regret is that we have no more children to host a Bar Mitzvah for. So we now will have to wait until they get married to use Zeffert and Gold again
Fran and David (Baltimore)
All I can say is what I heard from our guests; “YUM”
Lisa (Bethesda)
It would be without any hesitation that we would happily recommend Zeffert and Gold to anyone needing to seek an upper tier, dependable, and wonderfully cooperative caterer for hosting any special event
John and Anita (Rockville)
Your “attention to detail” came through with flying colors for one of the most important events that can take place for any family, the marriage of their children
Caryn and Paul (Severna Park)
Our guests raved over the delicious food and polite staff. I wish you would open a restaurant because I’m craving Zeffert and Gold right now!

The phone has not stopped ringing. My family and friends are calling to rave about how fabulous the food was!
Michelle and Michael (Reisterstown)
Things have finally returned to normal around here, and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for a wonderful event. Our guests are still calling to tell us how much they enjoyed the day. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared and served. Everything was perfect!

I cannot thank you enough for all the yummy food and spectacular service, but I am going to try, thank you, thank you, and thank you
Helene (Hunt Valley)
I have worked with many caterers over the years and you stood above them
Elaine (Annapolis)
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.
Meghan (Baltimore)
Iris was absolutely phenomenal! I was an out-of-town bride trying to plan my wedding long-distance. 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.
Priya (Shaker Heights, Ohio)
All of my guests loved the cuisine. We are all fans of your signature corned beef. The B’nai Mitzvah was great thanks to your culinary magic.
Mike (Potomac)
Please tell me you are going to open a restaurant. I will be there EVERY DAY!
Mary Anne (Federal Hill)
Everyone loved the food and accommodating service. As you know getting a group of attorneys to agree on anything is quite an accomplishment!
Fran (Washington DC)
