They have this lady there that couldn’t sing very well and after a while it got really annoying. Other than that they were on top of the water they made sure my cup is filled and I was satisfied. Although, I wouldn’t recommend the lobster mac & cheese because it’s fake lobster and it didn’t taste that weIl. The sliders were good though but there were only three of them and I was expecting four that was a little disappointing. My man ordered the shrimp scampi and they didn’t even take the shrimp tail off. He was kind of disappointed about that but he still thought the pasta was good I but ,thought it was kind of nasty. There was this lady in the red dress walking around and she was pretty cool she seem like a nice person. Overall I had an OK experience.
Valentines dinner with my wife and kids and the food was outstanding. My wife and I had the Zuppa de pesce my son had the linguine with clams and my daughter had the bolognese and all of the meals were outstanding. Highly recommend the Goose
Local restaurant perfect for occasions where you want to have a discussion - in the front room. Food was solid and tasty.
The service was unfortunately horrible. The waiter was not attentive to our table, even though the restaurant was not full. Never came by to ask how our food was, nor did he offer refills on water or coffee. The food also took an extraordinary long time to get.
Goose knows its strengths and its customers. The food is very good and the location is top notch. You can have a meal and catch up with friends without being rushed out the door. A good spot -- not too expensive.
My first time at Goose- the food and drinks were excellent, the service was excellent and we’ll be back again.
Overpriced and not great. Steak was ruined (and gray). Weak cocktails. Service was good and flatbread and calamari tasty.
Great salads in a cozy environment
Enjoyed it very much
I like The Goose for reasonably casual business lunch. Food and service is very good, and prices are reasonable. I like the bar area, as well, with a fire place. It's my go-to lunch place in Darien.
Love The Goose! Good variety of small to large bites of creative American cuisine. Good value. Service is mediocre and there are often lots of kids in the early evening.
The Goose is certainly a place for good food with a warm, friendly atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and definitely was in tune with our timing for ordering. The owner came around and checked in on the tables to make sure everything was okay.
This was our 3rd time there once it has been consistently good. We will definitely return.
We've been going to the Goose and its predecessor, The Black Goose, for 20+ years. It used to be so popular it was hard to get a reservation but now it's empty on a Saturday night. We took my 84-year old mother in law and my sister in law and brother in law. The manager was so rude when my mother in law came in with her walker. He told my sister in law to leave it at the front of the restaurant which would have made it tough for her to walk down the hallway and into the dining room. As it turned out there was a corner near our table that was fine for it - not in anyone's way. The waiter was pretty good, nice young guy. The potato chips and zucchini chips are still great. My Chicken Milanese was dry and so was my mother in law's burger. My husband's ribs were tasty. The bread pudding was delicious. In an almost empty dining room we were seated next to a large kids' birthday party. They were loud and having a good time which is terrific but it would have been nice if the manager had thought to put the 84 year old and her family in the other corner where it would have been a little quieter. Most 80-somethings don't hear that well. It's too bad because now that my mother in law has moved to Darien, the Goose would have been a nice go-to when we take her out, but I don't think we'll be back anytime soon. The bar side may be a better choice.
Consistently good. Never worry about what you will get at the Goose.
A staple for us for over 20 years!
Delicious food, friendly and attentive service. Entree salad portion size seems to be reduced since I was last here about 4-6 months ago.
Eclectic menu, great service and hidden gem in downtown Darien!!
Lobster sliders are outstanding. I had those, the Gag's side salad, and two glass of sauv blanc. Total check, about $53. Had just received my check, been there just under an hour, and the host came up to ask me if I could finish up because other people were waiting to get dinner. "I'm sorry", I said, "I thought I was having dinner? I just spent $60+ after tip...I didn't realize the menu items I ordered and check size wouldn't suffice as dinner".
My server was very cool, and patient...he had nothing to do with that interaction. However, I was dining alone, away from my wife and baby, and wouldn't have expected that. Good food, decent prices for east coast, but I can't endorse this with high stars based on that experience. Too many other places to check out.
Never disappoints! A place to go for us for almost 30 years!
The Goose is consistently wonderful! This is one of our favorite restaurants. The prime rib is one of the best we've had. Salads are great & the Mezze Platter is amazing. Kevin is also one of our favorite servers...he is very pleasant & helpful!
Good and wait staff is always consistent. Can't seem to go wrong with this place.
Both the food and the service were very good. The NY Strip which I had this time was cooked perfectly. I especially think their prime rib on Saturday evenings is the best around.
I particularly enjoy their maze platter and steamed mussels.
