I came here while on vacation due to a great recommendation I got from a cousin and boy am I glad we ate here! There's tons of parking here and we were seated quite promptly. The service was very good throughout the whole meal and we had no complaints. We both got sandwiches and I loved that you could get... More

I try to eat at the Silly Goose at least twice a month. Sometimes I eat there twice in a week. I love the innovative menu. They will substitute quinoa for couscous which is great for folks who are avoiding wheat ( or gluten in general). They support lots of local purveyors so I know what I'm eating is fresh... More

The Silly Goose is an intimate dining experience. The waiter was patient and explained many things to us. He made sure our entire order was gluten free so our dinner companion could enjoy. I only wish I had room for dessert

Very nice for something very different, new and comfy'. We loved the touches of youth and deco from who knows where! Staff was very accommodating! We were a party of 6 and couldn't wait to see what each others entree looked and tasted like! Very reasonable. My favorite part was the openness of where the food was prepared! And that... More

On a weekend trip to Nashville one of my friends had picked out this restaurant to try. We made it our last stop before driving back to our respective home towns and it was amazing. I had the Aviator salad and it was a perfect mix of quinoa, seeds, cheese, and vegetables. I also had hot tea with my meal... More

We just happened to fall into this place when we arrived in Nashville. A fun place with excellent food. It was all so fresh and good! Our group of 7 had a variety of meals for lunch and everyone loved it. The unique teas that they offer are so refreshing, especially after the long day we had. If you are... More

This restaurant is now my favorite. They have the most amazing tasting food that I have ever had. It is also the healthiest that I have ever eaten. The service is always good and they have a lot of tasty beverages to choose from. The only negative statement that I have to make is that it is always loud but... More

We found this restaurant through a recommendation and tried it for lunch. The four meals we ordered were delicious. The smoked pork was candy and the the couscous was like we never had. The restaurant is very open to adjustments to meet dietary or food intolerances or even personal preference. For example, the turned one sandwich into a salad -... More

Came here based upon numerous recommendations from locals. Not sure why people keep coming back?! Should have been an ominous sign when they were super-rude and discourteous on the phone for reservations three days in advance! They had me call back the next day! (Warning, you will have to give credit card info for reservation!) When we arrived, no one... More
