“Perfect”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Was treated to dinner here recently. It's hard to find fault. The room is beautifully designed, we had a corner booth with a perfect view of the bustling room.
The food was perfectly cooked, very good portions for what seemed a very reasonable early bird menu. The staff are extremely professional but friendly. Great wine list !

“Lovely Restaurant in Ranelagh”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Not as many great eating places in Ranelagh as in the past but this place is as good as ever. Having been there a few years back we revisited just before Christmas 2012 and were really happy with our meal and service. The food was really very good and the atmosphere excellent so it's top marks from three very satisfied customers. I'd also like to particularly highlight the excellent service we enjoyed, we were made feel welcome and relaxed, with no feeling that things (or us) were rushed, despite the place being quite busy.

“NYE”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

while most restaurants in dublin try to make a quick buck out of NYE customers by having overpriced set menus in overly crowded restaurants, thankfully the wild goose was the opposite.
possibly my favorite restaurant in dublin the wild goose, provided the perfect location to ring in the new year.
the food was, as always, superb. i had the lobster dumpling and the goose, followed by the chocolate fondant.
the atmosphere is great, the tables are comfortable and the staff are very courteous.
every time i eat in the wild goose i always say 'i should eat there more often'...i could not recommend it more highly

“I am giving it a 4/5 but the food needs some more flair”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

When you walk in and go up the stairs off of Sandyford you walk into a lovely atmospheric place with wine the main feature. There are bottles everywhere. A very nice touch and if you like wine then this is a great place to be.

The staff are good however for the prices and the setting not as good on their feet as they should be. The quality of the food they use is not in doubt. Very good as I ate fois gras on a goose platter for a starter and then as a main course venison however the plates lacked inspiration and for the prices I was expecting a little more from them.

To be honest I would eat their again, and I hope this establishment reads these reviews as the place is about 1 star short of being a fantastic and award winning eatery however as many of the other reviews have stated it just lacks a certain something.

If you like clean good quality food, well served and great wine and are willing to pay then this is the place for you. I hope on my next visit to change this and include something about how amazing the food is as at this point it is only very good.
