    We ate at 6ish on a Saturday. Restaurant has a warm, homey feel. Everyone is nice. Service was professional though felt a little "rushed". Food was "good", but not "great". Drinks were very good. Overall- nice place but nothing special.

    The Wild Goose is really a treasure as a neighborhood restaurant serving a wide variety of food from comfort to gourmet in an inviting setting. Service is always excellent (kudos to Emma, our hostess and Anna, our waitress, for their attention to details and to accommodating requests for substitutions.

    I hate to say it b/c times are tough but the food here has gone downhill. Lacking flavor, creativity, it had initially. Great attentive server, but food didn’t come out of kitchen together, half of group was done with entree by time other half got theirs. Meals forgotten and then wrong.

    We sat outside, in the back. There hasn’t been a great deal of effort made to make the space appealing. A few string lights and mismatched furniture doesn’t do it. I would have expected more be done to tie in with the inside aesthetic. Food was good though. We’ll probably head back for a table inside in the future.

    I celebrated a friends birthday Sunday night, the 19th. I wanted to surprise her and I selected The Wild Goose solely from online reviews. When I arrived at her home to pick her up she asked what restaurant we were going. When I told her she was tickled and extremely happy. Seems she has frequented your establishment many times - who knew! After having the shrimp cocktail, filet mignon, apple crisp and a glass cabernet sauvignon from Napa Valley, I echo the same sentiments. Thank you!

    Always enjoy the food and service at Wild Goose. From the host who greeted me when I arrived to the waitress who came quickly the service is excellent. The food was also delicious including the Chicken marinated with ginger, the arugula salad and the tuna tartare. Their drink menu is always refreshed and they have some interesting cocktails. Yesterday I enjoyed the white sangria with a sauvignon base and peachy flavor it was beyond refreshing!

    Another great experience at Wild Goose. The food is always consistent and they have an excellent wine list and cocktails. The best part was the homemade ice cream we had for dessert (Coffee Toffee Almond Crunch), so good. Service was quick but not rushed. Worth the drive for us from Queens for sure.

    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.
