Fat Goose Ratings and Reviews
Great find only a couple of blocks from the water and a park. Started with an excellent Bloody Mary followed by home made and hot out of the oven biscotti. Everyone's egg dishes were cooked perfectly. The home fries were crispy to perfection. Will definitely be back.
Went back third time. Food is still good but the portion of the food is inconsistent. Some entree e.g. The scallops plate we ordered had 3 scallops and they were small. It would be better at least there were 4 scallops. The duck entree is bigger in compared to all the other plates we ordered. The menu has very small selection and it is either you like them or don't. Our waitress was nice and always smiling but some other staff were dull faces. I may go back and hope the next time they have some improvements on their menus and the staff can be more welcoming.
Went to Fat Goose for brunch and both of our egg dishes came out cold. In addition, there was no seasoning on the eggs, making them very bland. Service was scattered - it seemed that there were only two people running the whole restaurant. It's a shame because the restaurant has great decor and is in a ideal location.
My husband and I had been there before about a year ago and we loved ii which is why we returned with friends. This time there was a different chef who is much more experimental and quirky. Some things were great (the kimchi and an awesome merique dessert) while my salmon dish had a bit too many things going on and my friend's pork belly was too salty. Atmosphere service excellent. Worth going.
Barkeep went out of his way to make a special cocktail for our table using ingredients he had on hand, and it was outstanding.
A party of 6 including a chef in our group was impressed withe the food preparation and presentation.
I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
The place is great. It's just that my foie grais was really salty. I was starving so no problem eating it because it still was good, but i also have a salty pallet so if it's salty for me then prob a lot salty for someone. My husband's pumpkin pancakes was also good, but not cook all the way through and not sure if that was intentional. The drinks were great, service was great so overall we'd still come back and try something else in the menu.
A quiet Sunday night, we received attentive service. We started with the blistered Shishito peppers, followed by an incredible watermelon salad. All enjoyed the grilled Romaine.
I loved the Grouper with Bok Choy, one of my companions raved over the Chicken with carmelized leeks. We would all go back again for the unusual flavor combinations as well as friendly service and relaxed atmosphere.
Service was ok but the food was more than disappointing. What looked like a great menu definitely lacked the execution and finesse required for the ingredients used. Some of the plates tasted flat out disgusting. Others where bland or a bad combination of flavors.
This place was wonderful - they accidentally sat us in the wrong spot so they made us get up halfway through our meal, but were so great, they ended up comping our entire meal as an apology! Too nice, and the food was absolutely delicious - the avocado toast and the chicken sausage thing blew me away. I'll definitely be back!
Fat Goose is one of my favorite restaurants in Williamsburg. The place is spotless with a fabulous ambience. The staff is doting!
Most importantly the chef prepares the food with really nice flavors and beautifully . We had the chicken which was moist and delicious. The pork was moist and flavorful. Homemade bread!
Enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail at the bar; a nice place to meet up with friends.
There are a few tables outdoors which is a big plus in nice weather
A great Williamsburg find!
Lovely restaurant in a happening part of Williamsburg. Food was good--portions were very small and very minimal. Service was extremely pleasant but ineffective. We had two rounds of drinks that took far too long to arrive...the restaurant was very classy how they handled it.
My partner and I came to Fat Goose on Valentine's Day for the prix fixe menu and really enjoyed our dinner experience. Service was excellent and all of the courses were exquisite- my personal favorite was the chocolate olive oil cake. I look forward to returning soon- I especially want to try their brunch!
I picked Fat Goose based on its proximity to where we were doing birthday drinks for my husband, its rating on Open Table, and the menu which looked tasty. It.was.incredible. Everything we ordered was original, subtle, beautifully presented, and delicious. Beets with camembert? Genius. Veal sweatbreads? I'm a convert. For our mains we had the duck (best I've had in a long time) and the market fish (perfectly balanced flavors). Dessert - no way would we miss out - was the olive oil chocolate cake. Sound like a gamble? Turns out the hot chocolate and fresh marshmallow are game changers. Oh and the space was great, and service was on point but discrete. Loved this place!
