Excellent food

Ate the king Kong. Shrimp was delicious with excellent cous cous. The pepper appetizer was quite good. My wife had jubilation with salmon and it was very welldone. Ambience is rustic and friendly.

The sandwich listing on the menu was very unique. It was difficult to choose as they all sounded delicious. I had the Bird which was mainly chicken and avocado with a cheese spread. Yummy! The restaurant was small and it was noisy but the food was so good, it was worth it. We ate lunch there and did not have... More

I was in town for a conference and had a late lunch with a couple co-workers. Everything was delicious. One worker and I swapped half our sandwiches so we could try two things, and everything was just yummy. Great service, fun atmosphere, free parking. What more could you want? Well, I really wanted to go back for dinner and try... More

Have lived in Nashville for years and have always heard rave reviews of The Silly Goose. This place is overrated! The food is decent but the service was frustrating. We walked in and were told it would be 30 mins for a table for two. Plenty of tables were open but they were reserved. What's frustrating is their website says... More

I dined here with my wife after waiting 30-40 minutes for a table for 2. I had the short ribs, which were excellent- however, the restaurant experience was not worth the wait time

The Pork Belly was to DIE for. I have dreams about it at night. The wine list is also great. The atmosphere is awesome, the staff was great. I especially loved the decor and the simplicity of the menu.

Everything on the menu is excellent. Really. Beer menu is good, servers are knowledgeable and the ambiance is great. One of the top spots in town. Not too bad on the wallet. If they have the second chance dessert, get it.

It only seats about forty so be prepared to wait. The food was very good with gorgeous presentations. Local ingredients made the food a real champ. Its so small though that the noise level made it a little rough. You're so close that they turn up the music to give you a little privacy from the other tables making it... More

We had the Tbird and the salmon. Both were amazingly good. Especially the cheese did great with the t-bird, a blue gouda. Don't know a blue gouda and I'm from Holland... It was pretty nice though!

This is my favorite place to eat in town. The menu is so inventive and special, I can't get enough of it. I think I could honestly eat a whole cheese plate on my own...and I probably have. Try the pork belly - OMG.
