    The food was very good and interesting. Our waitress seemed to not pay attention, spilling coffee every time she put a cup down--and I mean every time. It became funny. Still, we will absolutely go back; we love this place.

    Went for brunch. At first we were disappointed that there were only 4 breakfast offerings, but the two we had were delicious (omelette, and gotta hash). The bacon is thick and cooked perfectly. Spicy Bloody Mary was good but had a little too much of either pickle or olive juice. It grows on you. It’s a plain interior, but food and service were delightful.

    Service was great! We ordered Burger's, Fries and a Salad. All were delicious! There was a really odd/unpleasant smell in the restaurant and a lot of dirt/crumbs on the floor which felt unclean. We will definitely go back! Loved the location and the option to sit outside in nice weather.

    Reviews of place were good, so we deicide to visit on New years eve. I ordered the Royale Goose, a grass-fed burger, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, dijonaisse, sesame seed bun. My wife ordered Duck Leg Confit. We had high hopes only to be very disappointed. Food we so greasy, extremely bad. We finished our cocktails and departed. Never again.

    We truly enjoyed Goose & Elder! Started out day there for brunch and ended up going back for an early dinner. The Goetta Hash for breakfast was fantastic. The servers and bartenders were social and personable, the front dining room and bar were both a really cool vibe. Overall great experience!

    Good restaurant with high quality ingredients locally sourced. Very interesting take on dishes, you can definitely tell thought was put into the flavor profiles used. The pepper app was intriguing with a nice sweet, yet acidic sauce. The duck entrée, while tasty, was a bit overcooked. Thinking the chef may have prepared the duck saviche which could add to the dryness once reheating. Overall, nice restaurant, interesting dishes, pleasant service, just could use a little better execution in the plates. Would try again in 6 months, see how they have adapted and come along.

    Goose and Elder has a diner like atmosphere, with ketchup, salt and pepper part of the standard place setting and dark wooden Windsor chairs and tables. The space was brightly lit, like a Perkins or Frisch’s. Service was good, despite the odd ambiance. The food is not consistently diner like though. I had a delicious falafel burger and the grain salad with tofu (served cold, almost chilled, which I did not like that much. The table split the cauliflower and Brussels appetizer, which was flavorful. The double burger my husband had is pretty standard restaurant fare these days but he enjoyed the tangy mustard sauce. I passed on the disco fries served with cheese and bacon, ‘cause I like a good crispy, skinny, salty fry, but two people in our party shared them and finished them.

    Trying out the restaurant for the first time. The pork tacos, duck confit, and large salad was great. The burger truly looked like a kids burger. The meatball sub was very smothered in cheese. The Old Fashions were medium. Glad we went. Wanted to try all of the Jose Salazar restaurants. The other two did not disappoint. All in all we had a lovely evening with a couple who enjoys exploring as we do. Nice crowd and our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Loved the manager. She delightfully checked in on us a few times.

    Excellent service and amazing food in a relaxed setting! We went for brunch and I highly recommend the goetta hash, but get extra gravy on the side. Get a side of bacon too, because, I mean, it's bacon. Big, thick cut, peppery bacon. F@#k yeah. My wife even got to say hi to a famous YouTuber that she follows who happened to be there. Great brunch!!

    Excellent food & service. A plant based friend, picky carnivore, & omnivore loved everything. I loved my falafel burger & my pals said: “burger cooked perfectly” “fries are amazing” “this is the best salmon I’ve had in a long time” Great drinks @ the back bar too!

    Came here for an afternoon birthday celebration. Staff was very kind about the occasion and even brought out a free dessert--which was unexpected and so appreciated. They took their time to make recommendations on the specialty cocktails, whose menu had apparently just changed. We all could not believe how good the food was. We had the salmon dish, the enchiladas and the chicken with butter noodles. Also the ricotta toast to share as a starter. All just perfectly delicious and we oohed and ached over every bite. This is now my go-to place for a great meal at very good prices (the burger is just $8.50!).

    We had a perfect dinner. The dishes were so interesting, tasty, and prepared perfectly. Go for the Brussels sprout and cauliflower curry and the Mac and cheese, for sure. The salmon was incredible if you are hungry. Prices were incredibly reasonable for the quality of food provided. Can’t wait to go back.
