                    The wait was too long but the hostess Emma was apologetic and took care of us to ensure we would not leave. The food was amazing. We will try it again

                    Very shady business practice. We ordered Lobster Cobb Salads listed on the menu for $21 but were charged $38 because Dinner Portion. No mention was made upon ordering. We had tickets to a show and waited for our check and needed to pay in haste and didn’t notice until we got home that they included a cocktail we never ordered. So we were charged $48 plus tax that we weren’t expecting. Buyer beware!!!

                    I WISH I could tell you how the FOOD was, but we were NEVER served, waited OVER an hour but food never came...we left! Very disappointed, this was our 1st time here & we were really looking forward to it. I will say the hostess (Emma?) was very sweet and apologetic, but that doesn't help much when you're starving..We were there during the PW outdoors event and the staff seemed overwhelmed, waitresses were busing & resetting their own tables. Had an 8pm reservation, seated by 8:15, ok great, especially with how busy it was, we ordered drinks & dinner right away. Our waitress seemed annoyed we didn't want to order alcohol and was not friendly at all. She brought our soda & iced tea (which was supposed to be unsweetened, but def had sugar in it, so I couldn't even drink it). We then sat there over an hour waiting for our food. The waitress did not come back to our table even once to check on us or apologize for the delay. Other ppl seated after us were eating already. This waitress purposely avoided eye contact as she served other tables, my husband finally flagged down the hostess who tried to help, but after waiting another 15 min with no food we gave up and left. It was a very frustrating experience, especially since it was our 1st time visiting this restaurant, and we were honestly looking forward to trying their menu, which looked delicious.

                    The wild goose is one of your top choices not only in Port Washington but in all of Long Island. The atmosphere is beautiful from the lighting to the exposed brick. The food is superior and there is a lot of thought and creativity in the menu. One in my party had the fried chicken and it is clear why there's is considered the best on Long Island. There is a great range of choices for people who like everything from salads to pastas to poké bowls to stick-to-your-ribs comfort classics, and their drinks are very well-crafted. Our server Annie was a gem with a great knowledge and ability to recommend, not to mention her sense of humour. I cannot wait to go back!

                    We had mother's day celebration at The Wild Goose. We had been there a few times and it was great. This time it was as good as ever. The food took a while to get out, but then again int was Mothers Day. It was a full house. Both attending mothers loved it so it was a big hit. I highly commend it.

                    We eat here every couple of weeks just to have good comfort food and we are never disappointed. Emma, the hostess, always remembers us and accommodates requests for certain tables whenever possible. She always stop by to chat and make all is well. Tonight was simple meal; wedge salad and mussels for me (mussels cooked perfectly with a sauce that had just a a little bite to it). I don't care for blue cheese so had lemon vinaigrette (and passed the crumbled blue cheese to my wife. She had potato skins and a Cobb salad with chunks of lobster. Plenty left over for tonight. Wild Goose continues as a neighborhood standout.

                    More creative vegetarian fare would be a welcome addition to the standard pasta/salad on offer. Mediterranean plate was disappointing - pita, a few bland olives, 2 small spreads, one of which was unidentifiable by taste. $100 for a soup, salad, pasta dish and two drinks did not represent value for money.

                    The food is absolutely wonderfully. The cocktails are great. I’d dine here weekly if I could. It’s a bit on the noisy side and never understood who my server was, out of three that served us. Again, best food and especially value in Port Washington.

                    We decided to try something new in the area. I had a desire for fried chicken and read it was served here. The chicken did not disappoint. It was crispy, delicious and they gave a generous portion along with nice sides and gravy & biscuit. Real comfort food! Want to go back and try other things on their eclectic menu.

                    Bartender and all staff are lovely people. Had drinks at the bar before joining our party at a table for dinner. The bar is nice except when LOUD goombah-type regulars show up—-they eventually calmed down. The food is excellent especially the fried chicken dish and we had a great table. The place was packed but comfortable with enough room to get around. Love this place. PS: parking tip—-every time we come we always get a spot in front or next door. Be patient—-for some reason, the parked cars here get moved rather quickly!

                    Both our dishes were awesome. Service was very attentive both at the bar and the table. We did not care for the apple crisp, but other than that, recommend highly

                    The lobster was poached to perfection. Beet salad was phenomenal and the mussels did not disappoint either.

                    Came in for a simple dinner of salads and appetizers. Everything was spot on. Iceberg lettuce salad had plenty of bacon and tomato in it and the server accommodated my request for different dressing.. Had mussel appetizer and mussels were perfectly cooked. Potato skins were crispy and had right amount of cheese. Extra bread was supplied quickly. The hostess, Emma, was very friendly and efficient and, because I left my credit card behind called me quickly so I could get back in a couple if minutes. Our waitress (sorry, not sure of name) was delightful. We always feel comnfortable at Wild Goose.

                    The fried chicken is insane. So are the ginger margaritas but they don’t have those all the time. The service, food and ambiance all outstanding. I went twice this week with different people and everyone loved it - plan to go a lot more often.

                    It was a little crowded when we arrived which made me a bit uncomfortable. However they seated us quickly and in a perfect spot that wasn’t cramped or noisy. The food was delicious. I have to say they were very accommodating to my dietary restrictions. Waitress was super helpful in helping me put together a delicious gluten and dairy free meal! Will definitely be going back soon!

                    Food here is consistently great. I love the Linguini with Clams & Shrimp which has a very special slightly spicy white sauce. But, everything is really good here - meat, chicken, seafood - all fine. Full service bar with lots of choices for beer, wine, cocktails & specialty drinks. This is our go to place near Port Washington for a fabulous meal.

                    The food was very good as was the service. I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The steak was very good. I would pass on the octopus dish, though it was good the portion was tiny.
