    Such an amazing meal with even better service. Nina was very personable and seemed to really care about our experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for that special tasting experience. BYO is a great touch as well and even if you buy from them the prices are the same as a regular liquor store(17.99). Please go visit before they leave chicago!

    An amazing experience! The restaurant space was small and intimate with elegant safety precautions in place to ensure comfort in the midst of COVID-19. The owner herself served us throughout the courses, and made meaningful and real connections that really brought the heart and soul behind the amazing foods. Each dish was a piece of art in and of itself, and it was a wonderful experience to sort through the complex flavors and textures. An experience not to be taken lightly.

    So nice to see Nina and Chris again after 5 years. They made it through the pandemic and continue to offer a very personalized great experience. Highly recommend to any one who enjoys great taste, careful attention, quiet atmosphere. They have this amazing silent air sucking system above each table to reduce airborne transmission from one table to the next.

    Environment 5 Service 5 Food 2.5. First five courses 4.5, six dessert 0.5, 2.5 in average. There are six dessert in this 11-course tasting menu. This is too much in my humble opinion. I understand “11-course” menu sounds justify the price. However, sitting there 3 hours for eating chocolate is not fun. The first five courses are good. The custard dessert is good(the only one worth to keep in the menu, the others dessert honestly are just chocolate and juices). If the tasting menu has one more “actual entree”, and remove all those chocolates, I would appreciate it.

    A wonderful culinary experience overall. The owners do a wonderful job of welcoming you and making you feel right at home in the small unassuming restaurant that can be a little deceptive at first. The food that comes out is incredibly flavorful and very sophisticated. It’s a lovely three hour experience perfect for special occasions, a date or catching up with friends or you really get to leisurely enjoy your meal.

    The food was incredible. That’s what matters more than anything! I was at the restaurant the same night as the woman from San Francisco (her review is below mine— she only gave 2 stars). The entire restaurant knew how unhappy she was with the menu because her rude voice carried through the space. She was complaining about too many sweet things on the menu and making sure we all knew the other restaurants she had been to that were better. It was pretty obnoxious. Yes, there happened to be more dessert courses than expected but they were SO GOOD and I just looked at it as a treat. It wasn’t over half the menu, so I don’t know why that reviewer said that..Luckily, the woman and her date left while I was in the bathroom. Anyway, the venison was unreal it was so good— never had venison like that! Also I think they waive the corkage fee if you get wine from their shop (the place is technically BYOB).. I hope in the future, the complainer from San Francisco realizes there are quieter ways to voice concerns.

    wild this place has a star. food was unremarkable and over half the courses were dessert courses. presentation was super dated/tacky. service was excellent though and the owners seem like very nice people. overall very poor value especially considering we were charged for coffee/bottled water and a $10 corkage for a $175 tasting menu.

    Our first trip to a Michelin Star restaurant was a fantastic one thanks to the owners and staff at Goosefoot. The service was fantastic, and we felt welcome and at home. We pre-selected our wine(s), which were very reasonably priced and went well with our courses. Each of the courses were unique and interesting, presented in a way that made us go 'wow' each time. A great evening that we will remember for a long time.

    Chris and Nina (and the wonderful hostess, didn't catch her name) made our experience amazing. The 12-course meal was outstanding, and kept you on your feet the entire night. The Woodstock theme that night was adorable and fun. Nina even let us out the back door because it was raining. 10/10.

    We loved our dining experience at goosefoot. I brought my fiance here to celebrate his birthday with the 12 course tasting menu. We chose to buy wine from their Food and Wine shop instead of BYOB. The wine prices were comparable to any wine shop. And had a nice mix of choices. Each course was delicious and presented beautifully and creatively. There were a couple of different soups in this menu and they were all amazing. Each course was clearly described, and they even help you choose silverware (or tell you when to eat with your hands) by bundling all silverware in a box, with little tags to indicate which silverware bundle goes with which course. Such a great idea! We really loved this place and will definitely be returning.
