We enjoyed trying very unique sandwiches with a side of couscous and greens! Very tasty food and the staff were very friendly and helpful to us in selecting our entree's. We'll be back!

The food at silly goose is delicious. The menu changes up every once and while, so you'll never get bored with what they're serving. The chef, Roderick Bailey, is exceptionally friendly, accommodating, and talented. The servers are all also so friendly and fun to talk to, and help make the dining experience more memorable. Love the atmosphere, the little mason jars the different teas come in, and of course, that it is BYOB. Go for lunch. Then go for dinner. You won't regret it!

The food was great! Everything was very fresh. I believe all the food they use is from locals farms. The staff was very friendly. We had lunch on a Thursday and most if not all the tables were taken, although it is a small place. It was a little noisy, but I would definitely go back again!

I was leery after viewing the online menu, but was pleasantly surprised. Went for lunch on a weekday, didn't have to wait. Had the Sparky wrap (turkey) and herb couscous which was reminiscent of pesto. Large portions, took half home. Highly recommend, but definitely review the online menu before going, not for everyone. Service was OK, didn't refill our drinks. There is a parking lot shared with other businesses. The space is like a cramped, loud, concrete box. They use tablets to run credit cards. Definitely stop by Jeni's Splendid ice cream next door afterwards for dessert (not healthy, but great).

This compact restaurant is tucked back in an quiet residential neighborhood northeast of downtown. Seating is tight, but accommodating.The menu offers fresh and creative dishes including sandwiches, salads and colorful side dishes.

I ordered the "King Kong" couscous with curried shrimp, avocado, cashews and herbs, along with a side of roasted beets. Both dishes delivered an unbelievable assortment of different, but complementary flavors. Silly Goose offers couscous as a healthy alternative to the usual french fries or chips, alongside most sandwiches and main courses.

My husband ordered a delicious Italian sandwich on homemade focaccia, featuring cappicola and a bright pesto. He also noticed wine bottles resting atop a nearby buffet. Not pushed, but available upon inquiry is a nice little assortment of white and red wines.

We were in Nashville four days, and this was, by far, my favorite find.
