Thanksgiving was just outstanding, thanks to chef Bull and his team at SBK Archer Hotel for knocking it out of the park. Just got home and rehashing some of our favorite items. The charcuterie and pastries were a highlight as well as the carving station. Thanks again for making it a great Thanksgiving!!! More

I went this week to celebrate my birthday (party of 4, first visit for all of us). We ordered quite a lot of food and every single dish was fantastic. The service was great: friendly, knowledgeable and just the right amount of attentiveness...and the hosts were very accommodating. I couldn't recommend L'Oca d'Oro more highly! More

The food side of the place is fine enough. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. Everything came out mostly as expected and the meals were good and filling. However! The gaming side was absolutely terrible. There’s a single pool table and a single foosball table in the whole, huge place. In order to play you have to put your name on a list of a sea of people and wait (and hope) the stars have aligned in your favor. The arcade games to choose from are way old and the buttons are usually gross and get stuck when pressed. The bathroom was equally terrible and felt more like a dive bar on Dirty 6th than a gastropub in the Domain. This would all have been mildly tolerable had the bar itself been decent. There were only 3 bartenders serving a packed Saturday crowd, and one of those was on strict ticket duty, so he never even moved from his spot. Meanwhile it took a miracle from the heavens to get the attention of one of the other two bartenders. It took nearly 15 minutes to get a single beer. A woman next to me was unfortunate enough to get served the wrong drinks, and by the time she got someone to even glance her way to help, the ice in those drinks had already melted. It took that long. They could have used a few more helping hands to say the least. Bottom line: If you just want some food, this place is fine. But do yourself a favor if you want to enjoy some cocktails and fun, go someplace (any place!) else. More
