“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

When we were in Sedona we visited the Golden Goose several times, as it was recommended by some locals. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. The food is plentyful and affordable and very good. Nice cozy place and they also have an outside area to eat as well. The staff was very nice and took good care of us. Check them out you won't be disappointed.

“Definitely improved since I last ate here :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Must admit that about a year ago I had a pretty dreadful meal here (after a couple of OK meals) and haven't been back. Our group of about 6 people all agreed that the food was simply terrible. That said, when a friend suggested lunch there I wasn't thrilled but decided to give it another try. Lunch was perfectly fine. Orders came quickly and were properly filled and everyone enjoyed the food. Only issue was that it took too long to get the check. If we hadn't had a time constraint it wouldn't have mattered. I'll be back.

“This restaurant is Golden!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise!! The prime rib was immense and delicious, as was everything else we ordered. Rufino, our server was wonderful and attentive without hovering. We left wishing we had tried this gem before our last night in Sedona!

“Big meal, little price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

My wife and I ate at the Goose tonight and really enjoyed our meal. When we first arrived I was wondering if we wanted to be there. There we very few people. Our hostess told it when it was this hot(100) people tend to eat later.

We were seated and given some great tasting bread as soon as we sat down. Ruffino, our server, was there right away to take our drink orders then gave us some time before we ordered.

We both had blackened prime rib and an appetizer of fried calamari. The calqmari was deepfried witha pesto dipping sauce. The portion was big enough for both of us. The Prime Rib wasHUGE! We were not able to finish it. The portions must have been about a poundfor each of us. If was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderfull.

However one of the best things about the meal was the price. Only 50.00 for thetwo of us. I have paid much more and gotten much less. When we visit Sedona again we will return to the Golden Goose.

“Food was great but atmosphere was not!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We went there for lunch and got seated behind the dining room back by the bar. There were boxes piled up back there, junk lying on the bar and while we ate, there was a women not 6 feet away from us stacking beer boxes. Now we walked past a nice dining area where 3 other ladies were seated AND when we left, they had another couple that they had sat in the dining room after we had come in. The food was great and very large portions, but I did NOT like the atmosphere where they sat us. Looking back, I wish I would have requested/demanded to be seated in the normal dining room instead of the overflow section.

It is apparent you visited our restaurant during a time when our liquor delivery had just arrived. The boxes were being stacked so they could be transported from the bar area (adjacent to where you were seated) to the wine cellar. However, it is evident the staff did not keep the area tidy during this process and guests should not have been seated in that vicinity while this task was in progress. Your remarks have made us more conscious of this issue and we have discussed this matter with our staff so that everyone is more mindful of the surroundings when seating customers.
