    Amazing experience and we loved the holiday winter wonderland decorations. It felt as though we were enjoying dinner in their home. We were so excited to see Goosefoot’s kitchen is all electric! They truly are embracing a wonderful movement to help preserve our earth. This was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!

    Always exceptional in every respect. Feels like you are dining in the Chef’s home which makes it a unique experience. For a multi course experience the portions are relatively large, so bring your appetite.

    This was my second visit and both times, I was blown away. It remains the absolute best scallop dish I've ever had. The coconut emulsion is sooo delish! Everything was great and the presentation of every dish was immaculate.

    Food and service were outstanding. They are a BYOB, but have a wine list from the neighboring liquor store, so the wine was remarkably reasonable without the usual 3x mark up.

    We had the most amazing time at Goosefoot! It’s by far the best meal we’ve ever had and will remember it so fondly. Nina really created a a beautiful and cozy atmosphere, it feels like you’re having dinner at the Nugent’s home. Thank you so much to the Goosefoot team for making a 30th birthday celebration UNFORGETTABLE!

    So this place is certainly an experience. The food is out of this world especially at the price point it is. It’s BYOB which makes even better value if you want to drink something expensive. The ambiance is left of center, to say the least. No bad, just weird in a “you won’t forget this” kind of way. 10/10 overall recommend.

    Always a fantastic experience. The food is phenomenal, and the service is outstanding. Chris and Nina have been making this a go to destination for years and it never misses a beat. The creativity shines through all of the dishes, and the service is so warm and inviting. Always love the little touches, whether it be the microgreens from their garden or the origami that Nina makes for each guest. Thanks for a great time to Chris, Nina and Natalia.

    Goosefoot is a very special place in so many respects. The food is unique and carefully prepared and presented. The set menu is well paced and the portions are just right. Nina, the front of the house and wife of the chef, is warm and welcoming. Add to this a wait staff that is knowledgeable and attentive without being hovering. For a perfect evening, Goosefoot fits the bill.
