“What a shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Having heard such good things about the Wild Goose we were really disappointed by the food. Service was friendly and attentive but where the chef had got his playroom from I don't know. The staples of clam, lobster, shrimp were fine but going off piste to gnocchi, risotto and halibut on salad proved too much. Why couldn't they just stick to the basics ? Plenty of other places to try near Chatham before you need to take in the Wild Goose.

“Comfortable upscale”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

This restaurant gets pretty busy, but the wait staff treats you like you are the only ones there. The food is good, but a bit pricy for what it is. The menu a bit limited. The restaurant is very comfortable. I would still return.

Delicious food, at a reasonable price! We sat on the front porch and were surrounded by a lovely atmosphere.

We had a large group for dinner...about 20. Staff did an excellent job attending to our needs. Food was excellent. Nice venue for couples or adult group.

“Seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We were a family of 6 and 1 small child (high chair) ~ We were seated in the front area (I wont call it a room) as soon as you walk into restaurant there's a round table. That area would be a great place to let people sit and have a cocktail while waiting for a table. It did get a bit noisy when patrons waiting in line to be seated - took away from our dining as a family. I was reassured by Stephanie Linda would return my phone call ~ hmm still waiting. Poor customer sevice!!
Yes, we did have a reservation!!!
