Interesting, creative food in a small modern environment

After spending time in the downtown and being underwhelmed with where we chose to dine we stopped in the Silly Goose for our final meal before returning home. What a great choice. First of all I felt much better in this area as it was not filled with drunken tourists. I had already checked the... read more

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and decor. Prices are reasonable. Food is great. But the service is really lacking. A couple sitting next to us who were there before us for their order mixed up and were not served until after we were done! We waited a long time for our food - as we watched the servers stand...

We were drawn to the name and the food did not disappoint! My husband and I, along with our 11 and 9 year old, happened upon this place for lunch while visiting Nashville. The drinks started the great experience; basil lemonade, mint citrus green tea and pomegranate pineapple red tea. We then ordered a range of things from trout to... More

The Silly Goose is a little restaurant in East Nashville, across the river from downtown. We went for lunch and sat at the bar where we could watch the kitchen in action. The owner/chef Roderick Bailey and all of his team are in constant motion. We had the KingKong--gulf shrimp, couscous and a delicious sauce, one of the sandwiches whose... More

This place is FABULOUS! We ate here twice in a row the weekend we were in town - it was just that good! Make sure you try the wonderful tea concoctions they serve up - so delicious and refreshing! This is definitely a spot I will return to every time I get the chance to go to Nashville.

This restaurant has wonderfully fresh food that brings great energy to the belly. The teas and lemonades are wonderful and I have NEVER had a bad meal there. Friendly folks, clean place and tasty, healthy food - just can't go wrong here!

I love this place for lunch. They have amazing couscous dishes and sandwiches. Its a fun, not stuffy spot out in East Nashville. The chef also has an amazing story (google him). The staff are all friendly and they have a good wine by the glass menu. We always get a two sandwiches and a couscous to share. We love... More

Try any of the Couscous with different ingredients. We especially like King Kong. Nice salads and sandwiches. Menu is fairly concise and restaurant is pretty small, so go early or expect to wait.

The fantastic team at The Silly Goose accommodated our group of 6 for an amazing dinner last Thursday night, even though we didn't have a reservation. Bless them! Each one of us loved what we ate - so many interesting flavors and combinations. Two of us in the group are vegetarians and we were so pleased with the many options... More

Just finished the most incredible meal here. Great menu variety for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough!
