    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.

    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.

    Excellent food professionally executed. Deserving of its Michelin Star. The edible flowers are always an unexpected highlight at goosefoot, not to mention perfectly cooked and flavored meat courses. Each course will have a special rememberable quality from the silky sun choke amuse bouche , full flavored roasted corn soup. A scallop perfectly cooked to a unique presentation of a cheese course.

The service and food was amazing and each course was so beautiful and delicious. Also love that they are BYOB ($10 corkage fee per bottle)!

    This restaurant definitely lived up to expectations. We had intended to come here for years and decided my wife's birthday was a great opportunity. The service and ambiance, even with COVID precautions, were excellent and warm. Very artistic and creative presentation and incorporation of the theme of the menu. Woodstock was the theme, and even all the flowers they used were edible. There was a great balance of spices and the use of different proteins and textures to make the palate happy and challenged. Flavorful and colorful sauces were abounding to keep anyone on their toes. Overall it was a wonderful experience. One of the owners, Nina, was very welcoming to us, and given the chance we would definitely appreciate a return visit.

    Getting there: CTA's Brown line Rockwell stop is a very short walk from the restaurant. The room: A quiet room (no doubt aided by COVD-related spacing and plexiglas dividers between the tables) with a serene, homey vibe. Woodstock-themed music was a nice volume. Co-owner Nina is charming and engages with each table throughout the evening. Food: A well-paced chef's tasting menu, with a couple rounds of soup-type opening acts, two meat courses, and then several rounds of dessert offerings progressing from savory to sweet (though we felt like there were too many dessert rounds for our palate). All of the courses were presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. A few of the courses were truly sublime (roasted corn soup, beef, cheese course). It's literally the best beef entree I've ever tasted. There were some misses, but nothing jarring. Some of the flavors promised by the menu just didn't come through or were out of balance (for instance, one of the foam toppings was flavorless, and meyer lemon dominated the lobster). Truffles made an appearance in 3 separate courses which felt a bit much. Pricing is what you'd expect for a special occasion meal at a restaurant of this caliber. The Woodstock theme was a little puzzling? The menu blurb and initial greeting at our table made it seem important to the experience. In the end we couldn't discern any connection (but enjoyed the soundtrack).

    Amazing and beautiful multi-course meal (9 plus palate cleansing juice between savory/sweet and a to-go Goosefoot chocolate bar) in an intimate space. BYOB with no corkage fee if some wine is purchased from their shop next door. Good variety of reasonably priced wines (near retail price at Binny's or similar) that compliment the truly exquisite dishes. Great value plus BYOB perk, highly recommend to anyone skeptical of the multi-course/tasting menu approach to fine dining. COVID Precautions: Staff diligently wore surgical masks throughout entire meal service. All cutlery for the entire meal was labeled (for each course, e.g., lobster, custard, etc.) in a covered box and pre-set on the table with a similar setup for all wine glasses. Large Plexiglas dividers were tastefully installed between tables with fabric seals along furniture. Adjacent tables were kept empty except for brief period when our early seating (5:45pm) overlapped with later seating (7:45pm). We felt very safe without feeling burdened or distracted by the precautions.

    I felt very comfortable dining at Goosefoot in the time of COVID-19. They were very clear on mask requirements, had plexiglass barriers between each table, and they kept every other table unoccupied during our visit. We were celebrating my fiance's birthday, and they made a point of acknowledging him and making it special. The food was delicious!! My favorites were the corn and crab soup and the dessert custard, although every course was just gorgeous and incredibly tasty. We left very full and satisfied!
