BEST burger we have every had!!! ( and we are big burger people !!) We were recommended to come here from our guide at Chappellet. We had Gotts burgers (they are famous for their burger in Napa) BUT Goose and Gander is out of this world compared to them. The service was outstanding as well. We loved the cozy wood... More

While out wine tasting with friends. We were given the recommendation for the goose and gander. We ordered the g & g burger, adding bone marrow. It comes with gruyere cheese, bacon romuelade and duck fat fries. AMAZING! It is very rich, but oh so, good. We also had salad and the mushroom soup, also wonderful. We can't wait to... More

Highly recommended by a local winery (with a restaurant of its own) I anticipated this would be a great experience for the get go. I like the fact its off the main drag, filled at 8:30 PM and exudes an ambience that it is treasured by locals. The service was spot on from beginning to end and the presentations of... More

Very cool restaurant, creative and well executed menu. The feel is a cross between pub and bistro but the food is amazing. They have a bar downstairs where they craft some pretty amazing cocktails. Go early and have a drink at the bar, its an experience.

We'd wanted to come for dinner for quite a while as they don't have the pork belly on their lunch menu. It was amazing -slow cooked, flavorful and the puree was wonderful. It's a little on the small side so don't order it as your entree. We also had the short rib which was so very tender. I can hardly... More

You really can't expect how great this restaurant is going to be. It's built to surprise you from the moment you walk through the door. From the outside its unassuming, quaint, and tidy. Enter through the heavy front door into a hunter's den. Bookshelves mingle freely with painted prints of labradors and mallard ducks. It's lumberjack plaid shirt red colored... More

I had the salad, mahi, and chocolate tart and it was fantastic. My friends had the mushroom soup, Cornish hen, and short ribs and they LOVED theirs, too. The server was very pleasant and management stopped by to check on us. I highly recommend this place!!

Hands down. Not even close. If you are tired of wine and still want a cool environment, go here. Their bar in the basement is really cool and almost cave like. CRAZY GOOD COCKTAILS.. Did i mention that?

This was my last day of an 8-day trip to the Napa Valley. I'm so happy to have ended on such a high note. It was a rainy, cool Sunday night and the restaurant was relatively quiet. Colin was our server and provided some great recommendations - mushroom toast, duck & goose sugo and the basque cake. We also shared... More

We went to many several dining spots during our trip (Bottega, Farmsted, RedWood) but this ended up being our favorite meal of trip! We went for lunch- we were dropped off by our wine guide during a full day of wine tasting. It was her suggestion and holy smokes was it good! The mushroom toast....oh, the mushroom toast...so good! Luckily,... More
