Our favorite vendor – would sing from the hilltops!

We LOVED our experience with Zeffert & Gold from beginning to end. Whatever we wanted, they were ready and willing to tailor their services to help us. The prices were up-front; nothing was a surprise. They even had a designated server to make sure that my husband and I ate on the wedding day! And to top it all off – the food was incredible! I would book Z&G 100 times out of a hundred.

OMG Those Crabcakes!

As two foodies, we searched high and low for the right caterer–hoping to find something that could feel both elegant and casual, up-scale and a bit whimsical. Z&G did all that and more. The quality and care the chefs put into bring our vision to life was immediately evident, and the food was impeccable. We are fortunate to have eaten at many top restaurants across the US and are happy to say that the offerings at our wedding were every bit as memorable as those. We STILL dream of their crab cakes and the mashed parsnips and short rib!

Best of the Best

If you don’t want to read a long review: Just hire Zeffert & Gold. Period. One look at Zeffert & Gold’s menu and we were sold. On wedding day, the Z&G team perfectly executed my vision. As if they were able to reach into my brain and see the image of what I wanted, they nailed it and made my wedding dream come true. Our wedding wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without Zeffert & Gold and I am eternally grateful to them all.

Run don’t walk to work with z&g

I cannot put into words how amazing the Z&G team are! We ran into multiple wedding planning hitches and the team at Z&G was patient, empathetic, and hard working. I was always impressed with their food and service, but this is a team that goes above and beyond with their communication, their ability to pivot, and
their kindness.

They think of what you don’t, they make you feel like royalty on your wedding day, and they deliver on their product. A double bonus is that all of our other vendors were pumped we were using them — truly a sign of a company that delivers AND is good people.

Zeffert and Gold supported our corporate gala which boosted a Roaring 20’s theme. Their team was completely working in synch throughout the evening. This is our second time using Zeffert and Gold, and both times, they truly delivered a magical evening.

Best catering, hands down without a doubt

Ok… if you’re not hiring Zeffert and Gold for your wedding then what are you doing? This is, without question, the best food and service around. When I tell you I still have dreams about my wedding food, I am not lying. The food and service provided by Zeffert and Gold is entirely unmatched and we cannot recommend them enough!

Every single bite of food was phenomenal! Our wedding guests RAVED about the food and stated that it was some of the best wedding food they had ever eaten!

Best Wedding Food, Incredible Service!
WOW! Zeffert and Gold was truly incredible on our wedding day. They thought of everything, from making sure drinks were ready to be passed out right after the ceremony ended to helping us with a special toast! Zeffert and Gold took care of so much for the set up and the day of servers were always around and making sure the bride and groom had everything they needed. If you’re looking for a company to bring your day to life, this is the one!
