I have been enjoying Goose and Gander for years. The new menu is great and the service is excellent and they've always had outdoor dining so the "covid restrictions" for outdoor dining aren't as noticeable and it really feels natural to be dining outdoors, enjoying their beautifully designed space rather than in a parking lot or on a sidewalk.

My son and DIL were visiting from Portland, so it was a special occasion. He has fond memories of sitting in the bar downstairs with his college buddies, eating and drinking for hours. This restaurant brought back all those memories. We had excellent service, and the food was great, as always.

Goose and Gander never disappoints! It always our favorite dinner in Napa. This year we got to go there to celebrate our anniversary and they sure made us feel special. Every bit of the night was perfect and the food was outstanding as always. Thank you

We have been going to Goose and Gander since it was the Martini House location... still an absolute gem of a restaurant! Fantastic service and food every time. Their cocktails are spectacular, as well. We've had many special meals here.

We highly recommend! We came for a date and the service was outstanding. I wasn’t happy with the steak, it was over charred and only tasted burnt but they asked me how we were enjoying it just at the right time and immediately apologized and brought me the Wagyu and it was delicious. They also brought extra wine and fries as an apology. Our server Hugo was so delightful. We highly recommend the octopus salad. Enjoyed sitting out on the patio nestled privately under a tree and next to a sweet garden.

Really disappointed in the two octopus dishes we ordered. The cauliflower side was also less than mediocre. The ambience, wine and service saved our anniversary. I had also included the information that it was our anniversary and no acknowledgement was made.

poor inattentive service. at times unfriendly. prices are not commensurate to value. menu leans too heavily on most expensive items with too few medium priced food and/ or wine choices. e.g., chicken $28 / steaks start around $50. They should offer some main dishes in the mid thirty dollar range. lighting outside poor. we paid $200 the night before at Mustards with a full bottle of wine — friendly attentive service good to excellent food. we paid $132 at Goose & Gander for barely mediocre food and a non-stellar if not unmemorable dining experience. we do not expect to return.

After reading all the reviews, I had very high hopes for the food. However, we were very disappointed. Appetizers were great. We tried sticky pig ears, fried olives and mushroom soup. Fried olives I would skip, did not have much flavor. For dinner we ordered “Tonight’s special” pasta with scallops. Scallops were excellent, perfectly cooked. However, the pasta was terrible. Tasted like it was drizzled with old, bitter, stale oil. Also, we ordered bone-in rib-eye steak with sides. The steak was so charred, that was all I could taste. It was overpowering everything. For dessert, we tried churros which were excellent. Overall, very disappointing experience. I would not recommend, but maybe it was just one bad day..

The food was definitely very good, very tasty, generous portions (we had ribeye steak that was huuuuge), the mixology was fantastic, the outdoor area was pleasant, cozy and welcoming, the staff was professional and thorough, everything was very well executed. The price though keeps this in the 'special occasion' only category, not a regular occurrence. Great place, we're just not in a place to always visit whenever we go to Napa.

We dined at Goose and Gander with friends on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately and our server was very prompt. While I can't speak for all 6 of I can say that the mushroom soup and salad were good, the NY steak and rib-eye were spectacular, and the fries well who doesn't like fries. Our only complaint was that it seemed like the server was trying to sell us more than we wanted. Being new to Napa we are sampling many of the fine restaurants in the Valley and taking note of the ones in which we will return, Goose and Gander will be one of them.

The food was wonderful, and the ambiance perfect near a lovely fountain feature. Our server was good, but had too many tables to adequately take care of.

But we would absolutely go back.
