Was just the treat we were looking for! First brunch dining experience out in Cincinnati since lockdown... was exactly what we hoped for. Had the fig omelet (delectable) and Royal burger (juicy and the add-on of egg/bacon was phenomenal)- we will be back again soon!

All the dishes were good. The duck confit was amazing. We were seated outside with a fair amount of street noise but service was excellent and attentive.

Disco fries make a great appetizer! The special this evening was fried chicken and biscuits (with honey and butter) that my wife and I shared... AMAZING. We shared two sides (Brussels and cauliflower & Mac and cheese). If the fried chicken is offered as a special - get it!

This was our third trip to Goose and Elder. We have sat at the bar each time and not been disappointed. They have about six draft beers including a few locals. A fair selection of cans and bottles as well. The bartender, Justin, was very friendly. The food was delicious as always.

Food was fabulous, location fun next to busy Findlay Market, however, for Being a fan of Salazar restaurants, the service was severely lacking and does not measure up to the standards of his other restaurants. They were abrupt, had snarky responses to questions about the menu and borderline rude. Perhaps the younger servers need a refresher on basic customer service. Normally I give people the benefit of the doubt of possibly having a bad day but this was consistent with 3 people we interacted with at our table. Otherwise, everything else was fabulous and enjoyable.

This was our third visit. Great casual atmosphere and interesting menu. Loved the fried bologna and duck. Our neighbors enjoyed their first visit. Plus Chef Salazar is as in the house.

This little gem in OTR is definitely worth a visit. For the unique dishes they have on the menu, the prices are quite appealing. I went with a friend and we had some sort of very tasty little roasted peppers for an appetizer, along with bone marrow roasted in the bone and served with bread to spread it on. We also enjoyed our entrees. The menu is small but eclectic. I definitely will to back to try some other things. I would recommend making a reservation --- it's a small place, so, it would be good to know that they are expecting you.

The food is delicious (and beautiful) and prices are surprisingly reasonable. It was difficult to decide what to order because the menu has so many wonderful choices. We have already recommended Goose & Elder to friends.

Had an excellent meal at Goose and Elder. It was a Saturday night and we were able to get a table last minute which was nice. The restaurant looks nice inside and the ambiance is what I would call high-end homey. We ordered drinks and had the Shishimo Peppers and beef tartar as an appetizer. Highly recommend the Peppers, but beware the serving size is quite large (3 or 4 people easily). It took a long time to get our main course (like 40 minutes after appetizers). We had the veggie burger and burger with brussel sprouts and gumbo as sides. Again other than the wait time the food was delicious. Unfortunately we ran out of time for dessert.

Overall we had a great meal in a nice space that took a bit longer than planned.

My wife and I went for our annual dual birthday dinner. It was pretty underwhelming. No one asked about or acknowledged the occasion like other restaurants in the area. The food was a little above average at best. Atmosphere felt like a work in progress and it was noticeably understaffed.
To be honest, it was extremely forgettable overall. Probably fine for any random night out, but I would never go back for anything special.
