We ate at a lot of high end, expensive and delicous restaurants while in Napa. But, this place was by far my favorite and it was one of the least expensive. We were told that we had to eat here for the bone marrow burger. This burger was the BEST burger I've ever had and this was a shared opinion... More

We ordered a very expensive bottle of wine and several apps. After our server had our order we didn't see him again. It wasn't the experience we were hoping for and we won't be back

I was looking forward to eating here. I enjoyed the place a few years ago when it was Martini House. It's got a cool "English pub" look downstairs. The Thursday night we were there, the place was pretty quiet. However there was only one waiter to handle the main dining room, and even though he was a good waiter...service was... More

Flat Iron Steak was delicious, and they didn't complain or roll their eyes at me when I ordered it well done. Husband liked the Sturgeon very much. We shared a quail appetizer and both thought, meh. Dessert was great: toffee themed cake, ice cream, pot de creme, nuts, caramel... lovely (see pic). Lunch on a Wednesday was nice -- not... More

Our group of 25 gathered at the Goose & Gander to celebrate a birthday. Our set menu was brilliant; Arugula and Asian Pear Salad, 3 entrees (Arctic Char, Chicken Breast and Grilled Flat Iron Steak) and a large dessert platter. I will not attempt to describe the details, but each dish was outstanding. For me, the luncheon was culinary ecstasy.... More

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. I wish I had been hungrier that day so I could have tried more menu items. The grilled spanish octopus was awesome, so tender it just melts in your mouth. I had tried octopus a couple times in the past, primarily at sushi bars, where the octopus was cooked but... More
