    Great food and a really pleasant outdoor garden. My one irritant was how fast the food came. We got our entrees and we’d only moments earlier been asked if we wanted wine with dinner. The wine came after we’d dig into our entrees.

    Pork chop was good not out of this world. Basically did not justify $48.00. The Duck fat fries do not taste any different than fries from a hamburger stand. Went once but probably would go somewhere else when back in the area.

    The pork chop and tempura asparagus were delicious. We had 2 salads,they were ok. The chicken wings were good. The sauces that came with the wings could be better. Overall a very nice experience .

    Good food, spotty service. Our waitress appeared slowly, took our drink orders and seemed to disappear. The house draft beer I ordered was not working and it took a while to get a replacement. After the food was delivered and we we were finished, we again waited for a check. It was finally delivered by the front hostess. A potentially good experience was spoiled by poor service.

    My husband and I went there for dinner for our 20th wedding anniversary. When we sat we were handed 2 glasses of champagne on the house. Food was wonderful and the ambiance was exceptional. Definitely going there again. Have to get the sticky pig ears. Yum

    Lovely patio and great vibe. Napa at its best. The halibut was perfectly cooked, tender, moist, and accompanied by a fresh basil risotto. Amazing wine list, perfect pairings with the sommelier. Service overall is excellent at every step. Decadent chocolate pecan pie with a bourbon infused creme. The best part is they are dog-friendly, really kind and thoughtful from start to finish.

    This place is absolutely terrible. The hostess seemed to have no idea how to seat us. She told us there were going to be no empty tables at 6:30, a reservation time, when we asked to be seated inside. When 6:30 and later arrived, there were many empty tables. Also, the prices for the drinks and food were outrageous. No wonder there were so many empty tables, inside and outside, whereas every other restaurant in the area was full. The drinks at $15.00 each were all tiny. In 3 sips it was gone. Also the prices of the meats were ridiculous: e.g. Adding chicken to the Caesar salad would have cost an extra $21. Ridiculous!!! I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!!

    We decided to check out Goose and Gander after talking with our host at Hall Wines. We took her recommendation and got the burger with bone marrow along with a NY strip, the basil risotto, and a small Caesar salad. The burger was all that was talked about! Everyone loved it and said it was the best they’d ever had. The rest of the meal just didn’t hit the spot. The NY strip was tough (maybe just not a good cut) and the sides felt like they were missing something; maybe some salt or a little spice? But we were not able to convey this to our server because he never came back to check on us until after the meal was over. The atmosphere was relaxing and upscale but perfect for a casual dinner and drinks.

    Food was great as was the ambiance. The service was a little slow, but we think they were understaffed as our server was taking care of many tables at the same time. We especially loved the asparagus tempura and will definitely go back.

    It was exactly what we were looking for. It’s in a house that has a cozy feeling with good food and service. It was the most expensive salad I’ve ever had in my life ($42 Caesar salad with steak) but it was delicious! We also went downstairs to their speakeasy and had more cocktails. Get the lavender vodka drink!
