If you love amazing food and presentation you will love Goose and Gander! We sat outside since the weather was perfect (isn't it always in Napa?). Every course was food art and we loved every minute of it.

We were walking down the Main Street in St Helena on Sunday afternoon when we heard live music down a side street. Next thing we were sitting on a couch on the fabulous patio, drinking cocktails, and listening to Groove Session. We didn't eat but plan to come back for another visit because the atmosphere was awesome!

We mainly came to Goose & Gander after hearing about their fantastic cocktails, but also for the great good, and were not disappointed. My husband and I were recently in Napa Valley and this restaurant was one that was consistently being recommended. We started with pre-dinner cocktails in the downstairs bar. Their bar area is cozy and unique, and the... More

Like most of my school reports - ok but could do better...firstly the seating was fine, out on the terrace, nice sunny day. Service was slow, and once we had spent what we wanted, waitress seemed to lose interest in us. Cocktails were nice but the stupid HUGE ice cube is a joke...cocktails are fine the way they are, don't... More

We shared 10 different dishes and are having trouble picking favorites. They were all spectacular. Ordered a second side of mushrooms to share to die for!

Our group of eight stopped by for a late afternoon break and enjoyed drinks and munchies outside. We tried a variety of treats including the corn croquettes, radishes, bone marrow and octopus. The food, service and setting were all very nice. If we make it out to this area again I would be happy to stop by again.

This restaurant offers many different options for dining. The inside dining room is inviting and cozy, the outside patio area,where we sat is tree lined and breezy and the downstairs bar with its leather bar stools, wood and fireplace gives you a warm feel. Today, we started with a radish appetizer which was accompanied with a hay cream, yes hay,... More

Were recommended by one of the tasters at a nearby winery. Drinks were good, and was real nice to sit outside before dinner. Didn't taste any food, but cool spot.

We were told by a local to try their burgers and we did....juicy as juicy could be! Great food, great ambiance, live music on occasion and a great outside courtyard to eat/drink as well. Parking on the street just off the main street. We will be back!
