    My husband and I love this restaurant. We ate at Goose & Elder before the FC Cincinnati game, and we had the same great experience as always. My husband had the Chicken Schnitzel, and it was wonderful. I tried it, and I loved the juiciness of the chicken that was cooked perfectly. The noodles were very buttery and delicious. I had the big salad with chicken. My chicken was cooked well also, but the salad was so plentiful that I really didn't need to add the chicken. The vegetables were fresh, and there was a great variety of them. The dressing was delicious. I'd eat this every day if I could. I'm so impressed with the way they add just the right amount of vegetables to the salad along with the hard boiled eggs and great variety of lettuce. Our server, Skye, was excellent.

    Wonderfully delicious. Brussels and Cauliflower was outstanding! Best tofu we’ve ever had. Told the burger was delicious, mozzarella sticks unique flavor. Great place for vegans and non vegans to enjoy a meal together. Will be back.

    The service was good. The restaurant was busy and our server did a good job of checking back on us. We were charged a 22% gratuity which wasn’t a big deal except for the the fact that we were not informed ahead of time. We are good tippers so 22% was customary, but a heads up would have been a professional standard not just a courtesy. We had to get the manager involved in a seating issue with the host but overall the experience was good.

    Food was delicious but restaurant wasn't particularly clean and servers were disheveled.. Could have been because we arrived after the noon rush but not up to the standards of other Salazar restaurants.

    Celebrating 2 birthdays during Burger Week. First attempt burger was over cooked, 2nd, a burger slapped on a cold bun. After talking to a manager, the 3rd burger was yummy. However by then, the fries were cold. I thought l’d be pushing it to ask for fresh fries.

    My daughter took me to Findlay Market for Father’s Day which is amazing. We went across the street to eat at Goose and Elder. The bar is rather nice compared to dining room. If you cook a lot there is nothing on the menu that will impress you… unique combinations of cheap good made well. Overall fine experience but nothing impressive with the food or menu.

    I had a delicious duck leg confit over creamy grits. The bacon chunks were tough and the greens were dark flavored. Fun cocktails! It is right across from Findlay Market. Don’t follow Google maps. It is on the corner of Goose Alley and Elder St just like the restaurant name!

    We had such a lovely meal. Dining with a one-year old can sometimes be a challenge - not here! Every one of our dishes (fig & goat cheese omelette, Cubano, French toast, goetta, fruit and Bloody Mary’s) was delish & being al fresco with lovely Findlay Market in the background made for a beautiful brunch!

    We had heard great things about Goose + Elder and luckily had an event at SCPA, so it was easy to take the streetcar and get dinner there on our way home. We all loved our meals (house salad with chicken, burger and fries, chicken schnitzel, grain bowl w/avocado) and our starters (mozzarella sticks and pork nachos). I appreciated that the ambiance was casual and family friendly, while the food was stellar. That’s a tough combination to pull off successfully, but G+E did it with aplomb. Kudos!

    Family date, we liked that the menu had changed for summer. Everything we had was good. Veggie burger, veggie quesadilla, and grain bowls were tasty. The new Ricotta toast was yummy and not as sweet as we thought it would be.

    Been to Goose and Elder many times but normally for lunch while visiting Findlay Market. I think we’d probably stick to lunch going forward since we love the casual vibe. Food was great as always. You have to try their unique nachos and burgers. Have a good can beer menu but the draft list was a little lacking this visit. Our servers were super nice but they seemed understaffed for dinner. We had to wait for plates, drinks, and to close out. With seats inside and out they were running all over. Likely due to the ongoing hiring issues for the industry but we never had issues at lunch. Food is great. Location is perfect. Probably just a bit better for lunch.
