Such a delight to re-acquaint myself with The Goss's talents. Dinner was perfect, enjoyed the antipasto appetizer, the shaved leek salad (leeks are an absolute favorite) and the pot roast entree. The suggested wine pairings were on target, our server made great recommendations, and I...More

Their claim to fame is comfort food with a sophisticated twist and I must say they deliver just that. We had to have the pot roast based on our daughters recommendation and it was excellent with garlic mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. The pot roast...More
