Good local spot for Continental cuisine. Nice selection of apps and entrees. Server attentive, good ambience and tasty hot food. Plan to return for brunch.

Our server was friendly & attentive, without being intrusive. We were never rushed (in fact she was kind enough to let us know that our dishes would be spaced out to accommodate our table space) and we were able to enjoy a wonderfully delicious meal in a relaxed manner. The food, as mentioned, was very tasty, well cooked, and perfectly portioned. We’d definitely make the trip to Port Washington again to eat at The Wild Goose.

Yum! Went for Saturday lunch. I had the grilled octopus small plate and the field greens salad. My friend had the branzino. All were delicious.

The food and service at The Wild Goose are excellent. It's probably just my personal taste, but I find the ambience could be better. It seems a bit dark and harsh inside, with nothing to absorb sound and a depressing lack of light and color.

I would definitely eat there more often if the interior was more welcoming.

First time customer and really impressed with the food. Started with the pigs in a blanket. Best I’ve ever had. The grilled artichoke salad was full of flavor and not overly dressed. Entrees of duck and branzino were huge and perfectly cooked. Really happy I finally went. Great value and service was fast but not rushed. Will definitely be back.

Father's Day brunch was wonderful! Highlights were the shared appetizers ,watermelon salad and crab cake and, the fried chicken with biscuit and collard greens! The lobster omelet was very good but needed more lobster ,the fish specials ,halibut and sword fish, were plated beautifully ,but they were just slightly overcooked! Service was charming and efficient!

We have been there many times and it was always decent. Server was borderline knowledgeable. Service was poor. Waited after our appetizers and didn’t get our main course for almost 40 min. Then finally complained and the hostess not the waitress said they lost our ticket. We ordered food to take home as well and that came before ours did to eat there so had an argument with my husband and sent back so it wasn’t cold by the time. They said they would make another. Who knows if they did. It would have been appropriate for them to offer us a drink because of how long we had to wait but I had to ask and only then did she offer it complimentary. My mussels then came out cold even after the wait! Hostess offered to make another but I wouldn’t wait any longer. At the end she said she took off the bill but the experience and a casual evening out with my husband was too! Most unfortunate to have this experience from one of a Chef’s restaurants that are usually very good!

Excellent meal here - we haven’t been since 2019, so it was really nice to come back. We did eat outside on the sidewalk, so had to deal with street noise (loud motorcycles and car honking at times), so that’s why I took away 1 star for ambiance. If I was seated inside, I’d give it the most stars for ambiance. Great place for a date. Excellent server and we really enjoyed our food - shaves veggie salad, Mediterranean plate, tomato bisque, black truffle gnocchi and grilled branzino.

Great food and great service. We ordered the grilled octopus which was a good portion and very flavorful. As for the entrée I ordered the rack of lamb which was delicious and my wife got the LI duck which was perfectly cooked. I would definitely be returning for other menu items which look appetizing.

This review is for May 11, 2021

My parents were in town for my daughter’s second birthday, and since we are fairly new in town ourselves, we decided to stay close to home and The Wild Goose seemed like a great spot for dinner.

As a former restaurant professional for the better part of two decades, I can understand the apprehension on any professional server’s face when a small child sits down at the table…but that look never crossed our server, Alanis’s, face…not once.

The service was attentive, kind, helpful and efficient. I can’t say enough nice things about how great our dinner experience was. Sometimes the service is often overlooked in reviews but The Wild Goose staff went above and beyond…and for that, I thank you.

We ordered several different items from the menu. My wife got the gnocchi, which was light and flavorful. My daughter isn’t a kid’s menu kid, so the Mediterranean platter was perfect…and I got the duck breast.
Now, I’m not sure I’ve ever used the word “decadent” in the same sentence as “farro”, but I did that night…the duck was definitely tender but the creamy farro stayed with me, and I look forward to ordering that dish again soon.

Throughout the entire dinner, all the way to the candle in my kid’s dessert, we felt as if dining out was truly back in the swing of things.

If The Wild Goose is on your radar, and you haven’t pulled the trigger yet, get there ASAP…you won’t be disappointed.
