Wonderful experience. Went early to go to the bar downstairs and it was worth it. Great atmosphere and knowledgeable bartender...Josiah. Food was exceptional. Had a strawberry gazpacho and it was amazing and then it got better. Great restaurant in every respect.

Exceptional and authentic service and food. Loved the personalities of the wait people and the menu. Very fun bar. Everything was perfect. Patio heaters did not need to be on, but otherwise, perfect.

You know how when you see an amazing film and you cannot stop thinking about it for days? Well that is how my foodie experience played out in the days that followed our lunch at Goose and Gander in St Helena. I own food tours, we frequent Michelin restaurants and I love each and every place we visit. G &... More

Enjoyed our late evening meal at this restaurant very much. Sat outside in the courtyard near the koi pond and kept warm by a heat lamp. The service was very friendly and informal, if a bit disjointed at times. We were in no hurry and on vacation, so it didn't bother us to repeat our orders or wait a bit... More

Odd menu & very pricey. Only item that appealed to us was the steak at $52. It was four paper thin, narrow slices of beef-more like an appetizer-with fingerling potatoes. No bread, no salad, no veggies. Outrageous! So hungry we had desserts. Again very pricey but delicious. Skip the meal & just have dessert.

Nice atmosphere for a restaurant and bar. Our group of 10 was seated for dinner in a room to ourselves, which was very nice. There was plenty of choices for all of our palates. I had the mushroom soup and carbonara. Both were tasty and I found the portions to be ideal. Service was a bit slow, but our server... More

Had a group of 10. Service was a little slow, but the food was very good. The server was very accommodating when we asked him to split the check between couples.
