While visiting in Nashville, went here with a young couple. Not expecting much, we were amazed at the unique dishes and layers of flavor. Very casual atmosphere, we sat at small bar overlooking kitchen. Owner chef was busy but friendly. In a week long trip, this was best restaurant by far. Not fancyi or formal, but excellent food!

We visited on a week night, so it wasn't as busy as it would have been on a weekend; we were seated immediately. Service was excellent, food was beautifully plated and delicious, although the servings were slightly smaller than expected for the cost. Great selection of entrees, beverages, and desserts. (I tried the honey beet ice cream and it was... More

I like trying new food so when I go to a city on vacation i look for good reviewed restaurants. Seen silly goose and thought I would try. Best decision of the day. We had a beet salad and a pink panther sandwich. Great. Best meal in Nashville. Close to nice park on river.

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.
