Another Napa restaurant to rave about! Lovely patio and great interior ambience. Suitable for a date or for hanging with friends. Food is savory and beautifully presented. Drinks were bold and fun. Service, out of this world.

This restaurant/bar is a block off Hwy 29 and easily overlooked. It is really two venues. Upstairs is an attractive peaceful restaurant for a quite dinner. Downstairs is a lively bar scene with several tables for dining as well. You get to choose what mood you are in and dine accordingly. This seems like it would also be a great... More

This spot is off the main street and tucked behind some hedge plants, so you will have to venture one block off HWY 29 main street. It is easy to find one block to the west on Spring Street. They have a lovely upstairs dining room, large patio area with fountain and a charming downstairs bar area. We chose to... More

Based upon prior reviews, I made reservations for 4 at 8 pm on a Saturday night. We confirmed our reservation mid-afternoon and arrived at 7:45 pm after a 25 minute drive from Napa. The restaurant was packed. We were greeted immediately, told we would be seated shortly, and instructed to go downstairs to the bar. The bar was standing room... More

We walked into a visually surprising living room like restaurant. Dinner was great and the neighboring table took pictures of their salads. Descending the stairs you find yourself in a crazy cool "Speak Easy" bar, cozy and happy upscale visitors. Then, you leave by the downstairs door and their is a gorgeous grotto with pond, fire pit and we forgot... More

Goose & Gander is one of those special restaurants that works to have a drink with a small bite to a special occasion meal. New Year's Eve Dinner was excellent featuring oysters, truffles, tenderloin and much more. Music was in the tented courtyard so we were able to welcome 2015 dancing. A great way celebrate the new year. I have... More

We travel to the Napa area quite a bit and have experienced some amazing food and service in the area. Goose and Gander certainly has a cool vibe - a little speakeasy type of feel. The food was good and rivals others in the area but the prices are pretty high for what you get and the wine list -... More

Only experience was the bar and loved it - we went back a few times. Great drinks and apps. Place was perfect on a cold winter night to tuck into. Great vibe and music.
