“Great Lunch Spot”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a great spot for lunch. Since it was a nice day we ere able to eat outside and enjoy the Sedona vista. Both my husband and my sandwiches were delicious and well prepared. The staff was attentive, but not overbearing.

“Excellent all around”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We ate at the Golden Goose on April 20, and it was an excellent meal. I one of the specials that evening was filet mignon with prawns and it was delicious. The steak was done exactly to my specifications (medium rare) and was cut-with-a-fork tender. The prawns were excellent, but if there could have been and improvement to this meal, the prawns could have been cook a wee bit less. Nevertheless the whole meal was excellent, and the price reasonable.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good food, great decor, excellent service at a good price.

“Good Value in an expensive town”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had two lunches and a dinner at this small restaurant which has the feel of a place that the locals like. The food quality and choices were most satisfactory ... the value delivered for price paid suited my "Old Yankee-like" personality. Our waiter, Fernando, was most attentive and professional. He frequently checked with us to make sure we had everything needed. Our positive experiences with all three meals will ensure that we have this restaurant at the top of our list when looking for a place to eat in Sedona on our next visit. It's not a fancy place ... feels very homey to us ... a most pleasant environment and unexpected pleasure (their homemade soups are first class ... especially the roasted corn chowder).

“Below average breakfast”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

This was the one true whiff on our restaurant selections in Sedona. Relying on the high Tripadvisor rating we were disappointed in a "greasy spoon" generic breakfast. Absolutely unexceptional in every way. The location isn't great, although there is a Red Rock view from the patio if you overlook the adjacent 5 lanes of traffic. I hope their lunch is fantastic to justify such a high rating

Thank you for taking a moment to offer feedback on your visit. Whether positive or negative, we read each and every review and take to heart any constructive criticism that can help us improve our operations.

We know everyone has varying tastes, and, therefore, our food will not appeal to all customers. However, by no stretch of the imagination, are we a "greasy spoon." Our food is prepared from fresh ingredients and we use high quality oils and pure butter for pan frying, sautéing and deep frying. I'm not sure where the insinuation of "greasy" would come from.

As far as location . . . we can’t change that. But, we have made the best of what we have to work with. Our interior is clean and inviting with charming accoutrements. Our outdoor patio offers dining in fresh air with a spectacular view of Thunder Mountain; albeit, next to a 4-lane road, as are most patios for restaurants in Sedona

“New in Sedona?”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

When new to an area, it is sometimes challenging to find a "good" place to eat. Let not your heart be troubled. The Golden Goose is a great find! Excellent, excellent food, service and server's attitudes. If LouAnn is your server you will "well served". There's no risk in going to the Golden Goose
