“Decadent burger with duck fat fries, and charcuterie plate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

A charming hostess at an earlier wine tasting recommended Goose and Gander for the burger with marrow. We are confirmed carnivores, so we headed to St Helena straight away. We ate outside on a beautiful summer afternoon. As promised, the grass-fed burger, frites, and the charcuterie plate that we discovered were all delicious. A glass of local rose sealed the deal. Our server was great: personable, knowledgeable, and attentive in just the right proportion.

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Not sure where to eat and GNG was recommended so thought we'd try it. The place is quaint, off the beaten path, has excellent food and drink. Our server, David, recommended the special of the day along with some signature cocktails. Everything was good. Will go back.

“Lovely Outdoor Seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

The Skinny:

Parking- street
Decor- leather and wood inside, garden outside
Restroom- clean and tasteful
Service- friendly
Food- terrific

We had dinner here on a weeknight and the garden is absolutely lovely to have dinner. The tables are spread out so you don't feel like you are crowded. There are sofas and a fountain and large shade trees - very lovely atmosphere. I had the cream of mushroom soup which was fabulous and my friend had the date appetizer which she said was very delicious. We all ordered the same salad, fried chicken wedge salad - also so good I only wish there was more chicken! For dessert I had the decadent peanut butter tort and my friend had the strawberry shortcake which looked awesome. Our server was so friendly and we were really able to relax and enjoy our meal.

“They really know about cocktails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We popped in for a drink after a dinner in another place. It was recommended by the place we stayed at in St.Helena. It was a good choice. We looked for a nice tasting digestive and a nice atmosphere to chat before coming to he hotel. The barman downstairs asked all the right questions and prepared really nice cocktails to fit our tastes. Well done! Highly recommended!
