I’ve been to Goosefoot multiple times and it never disappoints. We went for my sister’s birthday and Nina and Chris made sure it was a special night! They welcome you into their “home” and the food and presentations were amazing. I loved the whimsical Beatles theme, too. Go!!!

What a wonderful dining experience that Chris and Nina put together. They are such gracious hosts and the meal is creative and exceptional in every way. They welcome you into the restaurant in a way that I’ve never experienced before in a fine dining establishment. You will thoroughly enjoy the experience if you’re lucky enough to ever get a reservation.

An absolutely unique place with a wonderful atmosphere, personal touch, and a very good food. The place is small, only 8 tables. Single 6:30 sitting with pre-fix menu consisting of 13 small dishes. Appetizers and soups are outstanding, pastries are good, a few accompanying non-alcoholic drinks ( not really drinks, just are in a liquid served in a special container(?) are in my opinion comparatively less interesting. It is BYOB (which is great) but you could buy wine in the neighboring store under the same Goosefoot name.
A couple, Nina and Chris Nugent, run the place and it feels you are a guest to their family, not a restaurant patron. Nina meets you at the entrance, she serves all meals and she prepares an expected show that combines music, food, and personal experiences. Chris appeared at the end and be prepared for unexpected conversations.

Food was very good but the service was very slow and turned almost strange. Unfortunately not worth the price.

The best meal we had! Chef Chris is amazingly talented, his dishes are all beautifully executed and all very delicious. The maitake mushroom tortellini is exceptional. Nina is an great hostess, very sweet and very attentive. At the end of our meal, Chef Chris sat with every guest at our tables. They are very welcoming and truly made us feel like home. Chef Chris and Nina, More power to you!!!

The food is as amazing as the hospitality of the hosts, Chef Chris Nugent and his wife Nina. They make you feel as if you are in their own home, all while enjoying creative, world-class cuisine.
