Our wedding venue uses Gooseberries as their caterer. We had our initial tasting with Gooseberries and it was awful. We walked out after the first bite of food. To start with, the "chef" handed out our food while holding a coffee he was drinking. Thought that to be unprofessional, especially since my parents had not been offered anything to drink when they arrived to the tasting. We we only given 2 of the 3 appetizers we requested to taste and 2 of the 3 entrees served were not what we ordered. They tried passing off a prime rib as a strip steak, the two steaks look nothing alike, so the fact that they tried pretending it was a strip steak was humorous. Even though neither of the steaks were choices we picked, we tried them anyway. The steaks were so tough you could barely cut into them. The chicken dish that had the same name as the chicken dish we requested, did not come out as described in the menu. All 3 entrees had a gravy with mushrooms saturating everything on the plates. None of the food we requested had this gravy on. None of the food was hot. The french style green beans were ice cold. It was clear they were never even cooked and just thrown on the plate with some bacon bits sprinkled on top. The twice baked potato casserole were a yellow color and had zero flavor to them at all. The presentation was awful. I would not recommend them to anyone. If they cannot provide a hot meal for 4 people at a tasting I would be very reluctant to use them at a wedding where they are serving many more guests. After the tasting was over the wedding coordinator at our venue emailed apologizing for the experience and had a manager/owner from gooseberries copied on the email. I found it to be bad customer service that he would not have reached out as well after receiving an email like that. You would think when people are spending so much to cater a wedding, they quality would be a little better. Very disappointed in this place and very thankful our venue has other

We purchased our centerpiece cakes, wedding cake, and grooms cake from Gooseberries bakery. We were able to try multiple flavors and then add extras for a nominal fee but well worth it. We cake tasted early in the wedding planning process and drooled over our choices for the next nine months. We were even able to provide a gluten/dairy free cupcake option for our guests so those unable to enjoy the other cakes could still partake in the celebration. They were willing to work with us as we needed to rent 26 cake stands for each table. Set up went smoothly with each table having a specific cake assigned to it and we had no issues at all. Cake boxes were even provided for the leftovers. We couldn't save our cake because it was too delicious but are looking forward to our first anniversary to order another.

Lauren and Chef Mike were both great to work with during the planning process. We initially picked Gooseberries to cater our wedding. We then added a small cake. And last minute decided we would cater in sandwiches for lunch, too! The food was all delicious! The only issue we ran into was more logistics related - we didn't realize they would be bringing in large warmers, which consumed a large amount of electricity. For most people, it probably wouldn't have been an issue. For us - the groom is a lighting designer and had planned for a large custom lighting setup to be brought in....unfortunately the room couldn't handle both the lighting rig and the caterer warmers turned on. They were accommodating to keep the warmers off, and the doors shut on the warmers to keep the heat in, though it would have been nice to know they were planning to bring them. All told, though, we were still happy with Gooseberries! Oh, and unrelated sidenote - if you stop in to their grocery, highly recommend trying their different flavored brats, especially the pizza ones!

I had so many compliments regarding the delicious food! Everything was right on point! I also used Gooseberries for floral and linens. The bouquets, centerpieces, arrangement, and garland were above and beyond my expectations! They were all absolutely GORGEOUS! I love how both Mike and Kathy took time out of their crazy busy schedules to meet with me and completely cater to my needs and vision and still stay within my budget. They are amazing and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for catering and floral for their wedding!

We got our wedding cake and some cupcakes for the dessert bar from Gooseberries. Their cake pricing was super reasonable especially for the simple cake that we wanted. Their delivery fee is also so reasonable. Their cake is super moist and delicious- I bet it will even taste good out of the freezer in a year! I highly recommend the Grand Marnier. Thanks Gooseberries- you are the best!!!

Gooseberries supplied our food, flowers, and cake for our wedding. The food was delicious and got many compliments and Chef Mike helped us hand pick our stations. Cake was amazing also! They were very accommodating when it came to flowers as well. I DIY'd my centerpieces and they were so helpful when it came to figuring all of that out. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in Wisconsin!

Chef Mike and his staff were exceptional. Over the top and absolutely nailed it. Our guests could not stop talking about the food. Chef Mike was extremely helpful during the entire process in helping us make selections and pull everything together. His recommendations for a few other vendors also worked out great. We had a little intermittent rain early on and the staff was very flexible in setup and handled it without people really even knowing. I would absolutely recommend Courtyard Catering without hesitation.
