We love Z&G!

Zeffert and Gold was the easiest and best decision we made during our wedding planning process. We knew that Z&G was the most commonly used caterer at our venue, Gramercy Mansion, and liked the idea that they would be a well-oiled machine when it came to understanding how to work with the venue鈥檚 indoor and outdoor spaces.
We already had high expectations given everything we had read. That being said, Adelaide (our point of contact at Z&G) managed to blow our expectations out of the water. Her professionalism, promptness, and expertise relieved so much stress and made us feel confident going into our wedding. The fact that Z&G manages all the rentals relating to the food (cocktail hour tables, dining tables, table cloths and runners, napkins, silverware, etc.) made it so much easier to coordinate all the pieces for how we envisioned our reception. Even when we had a last-minute change of mind, Adelaide was able to quickly change out the colors of our fabrics. Throughout the entire process, Adelaide was always looking out for us and giving us recommendations based on our budget. It never felt like Z&G was nickel-and-diming us, and we got what we wanted without having to pay for numerous extras.
Our food was the best wedding food we鈥檝e ever had. Right from the tasting, we knew we were in great hands. Our guests have continued to remind us that the food and drinks were memorable and set the standard for wedding catering. Plus, the signature cocktails were strong! Additionally, we had a dedicated server (Talia) during cocktail hour and dinner who made sure that my husband and I stayed hydrated and got to eat during the chaos and busyness of it all.
Overall, we cannot recommend Z&G enough!

By far the best decision we made during the wedding process was going with Z&G. While there are several comparable (price-wise) caterers out there, the quality of service in EVERY aspect far exceeded our expectations of service. Where as other caterers wanted to nickle-and-dime us for non-plastic coffee cups, gratuity for the servers, and dessert cutlery, KC (Kathleen) went out of her way to ensure us she has included all of those details in the quoted price. She even saved us a couple of hundred dollars on decorations because they had certain items them in their store-house!

KC (Kathleen) is a DREAM to work with. Very responsive over email (I'm surprised more wedding vendors aren't). She worked beautifully with our venue coordinator (who is a bit opinionated) and the DJ. I didn't worry about a THING with regards to the schedule, the decorations, the food, or the set up (ceremony or reception) in the week before my wedding because KC and I worked through all the logistics by the walk through, and she coordinated with all the other vendors to make it go incredibly smooth.

Absolutely incredible!!!

FANTASTIC!!! Z & G was the best decision we made for our wedding. The staff went above and beyond to caterer to our guests and to the bride/groom.
Lisa Schatz was amazing, not a single detail was overlooked, she was attentive from the first tasting all the way to wedding day!
The. Food. Was. Amazing. I want to throw another party just to have them caterer.
