    Can't recommend more. Fine dining that pays attention to taste of dishes rather than the entire experience. Rather than experimental dishes, the quality of each course is phenomenal. Highly recommend if you can make a reservation.

    My wife and I celebrated my 40th birthday here. Really excited that we did. The service was top-notch. Lots of attention to the table setting, ambience and Covid protocols. The food was delicious with plenty of little surprises - great combination of flavors and textures. The wine available from their store was very affordable and tasty. Nina and Chris provided a memorable experience.

    What a lovely and memorable experience we had a Goosefoot. Yes, it is expensive but, it was worth every penny we paid. The service, the presentation, the absolutely delicious meal was simply divine. Creative, non-pretentious, unique and over-the-top all rolled into one. We will definitely be seeking reservations again, albeit for a special occasion.

    Amazing food, presentation, and service. Very unique decor in an intimate setting. BYOB aspect is a great option if you have strong wine preferences, but their near-retail priced wine selection has a good variety of pairing options along with half bottles. A real gem for tasting menu type restaurants. Nina and Chris are rockstars!

    Charming BYO spot to enjoy Grand Cru Burgundy from the cellar - the food was a great match for whites and reds both. Hooray! Highly recommended as a place to go if you, too, have too much wine in your basement. (Highly recommended otherwise, as well!)

    The food was tasty and well presented. The service was friendly and helpful. The decor was a bit stark and I didn't really understand the Woodstock theme as it had nothing to do with the food/presentation. We would definitely go back for the amazing food!

    Consistently, Goosefoot is one of the best restaurants in Chicago. The passion of Chris and Nina for outstanding food and service is evident in every little step they take, from the wonderful and playful menu to the interesting and diverse food. Chris is a fantastic chef, highly creative, and thoughtful in presentations. His creativeness with desserts is also exceptional. Nina, as front of house, is warm, friendly and always kind. Natalia is a gem and supports the overall friendly vibe of the restaurant. Goosefoot is such a unique restaurant and always a fantastic experience.

    Overall, everything was okay. We’ve eaten at numerous Michelin restaurants and had very high expectations based on reviews. They were not met. Our biggest issues were with the speed of service. This was the slowest service we’ve ever received. So much so that a couple of the servings were a bit on the colder side. In terms of ambiance they could dim the lights a bit, as well. On a positive note, our hostess was delightful. She is married to the chef and very pleasant. She was not enough to account for the other concerns, however. In sum, $500 (including 30% gratuity) was a bit expensive for what we received.
