Don't Miss Sunday

Not only is the food delicious but on Sunday's they have live music outside while you dine. We had the good fortune to hear two of the Brough Brothers sing their folksy renditions of many songs. Absolutely delightful. And if you going for the hamburger, splurge on the bone marrow. Rich and decadent.

My friends, who are burger experts, say this is the best burger they have ever had. I tend to agree. The bun is a ciabatta which is not as soft as the usual bun but it absorbs the fat from the juicy burger nicely. The bacon and pickles do not overwhelm. The duck fat fries are delicious. So is the...

I went here after a morning of wine tasting and ordered the G&G burger. It was the best burger I have ever eaten in my life! The burger was topped with bacon, gruyere cheese, and remoulade, which is a wonderful sauce similar to aioli. It was big, juicy, perfectly cooked, and scrumptious. And then there were fries fried in duck... More

I love, love, love the downstairs tavern. It feels like something out of a fairy tale as you step your way down into this rustic beauty. The cozy environment and warm staff make you feel at home. Then there are the cocktails...over the top! Personally, I think the artistry takes too long with the hand decorating of each one with... More

We started out by having lunch. We ordered the radish appetizer. What a delight! I'm not normally a radish fan but this was really good. Order it! For lunch we split a burger. What a mistake! We should have each gotten one because it was SO SO good!!!! Did I mention how good it was? It comes with fries. I... More

This has become our standard stop for some delicious food and cocktails, a refreshing break from a day of wineries. My husband and I absolutely love their cocktails! He's favorite being "the cigar box" sort of a smokey old fashioned of which I'm not sure is on menu but they always know how to make it perfect. And don't get... More

We did not have big expectations and were pleasantly surprised. The small dishes are very tasteful and reasonably priced. The food is very good. We enjoyed the Octopus and the bone marrow. I would also suggest the fried olives which were darn good. Cant wait to make them at home. I had the burger with seared Fois and it was... More

We didn't have a reservation, when we arrived they said they were booked up, but they were able to fit us in. Our table was lovely and service was great. They have really good craft cocktails too! We ordered the steak special it was $85 for two people and was melt in your mouth delicious!!

We stopped in for lunch following a recommendation from a friend who was recently in the area. WOW she knows me well! This place was fantastic! We had bone marrow, a korean pork sandwich, and a burger. All of the food was unbelievably delicious and cooked to perfection. It was the BEST burger we've ever had. You need to eat... More

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.
