A labor of love by a husband and wife team. Thank you for the experience!
Amazing, curated dining experience with great, beautifully presented food and excellent service.
Wonderful experience each course was delightful and Nina was the perfect hostess
Fantastic. All around fantastic food, service and ambiance.
Extraordinary, remarkable, memorable! One of the best prix fixe dinners we have EVER had...and We have had our share of good ones but Goosefoot was great! It’s one of those meals that is as artful as it is tasteful. The thought and imagination the Nugent’s put into each course is amazing! Wonderful wonderful evening! Highly recommend!
My close friend from high school came in from Australia for a visit and really desired a fine dining experience. I was able to book Alinea on such notice and found Goosefoot instead. It was wonderful! We savored every course with all of our senses. Neither one of us were disappointed in missing out at Alinea because Goosefoot did not disappoint and was half the price of the ticket we would have paid.
I cannot even choose my favorite dish, but I LOVED the chocolate bar to take home! It was like extending the amazing experience we had had in the restaurant. Thank you to the chef and staff for making our night one that will always be remembered.
Goosefoot did not disappoint. We celebrated a 60th birthday and it was absolutely perfect. Thanks for making our dinner so special. We will definitely be back!!!
A true dining experience. You feel like
you are dining in their home. BYOB offsets the price tag. Well worth it!!
Great food, hospitality and atmosphere. Small dinner room without being packed.
Love the creative dishes, mainly the Goosefoot one!
Great experience, can’t really find a flaw!!
Outstanding experience! Food was amazing, service attentive and environment conducive to conversation. Nina made our family feel special and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
I was seated right away when I arrived despite being early. The wine we had ordered from next door was ready for us, and the service was delightful. Nina and her staff were attentive but not overbearing; there description of the food was entertaining. Highly recommended!
Amazing taste and combinations. Excellent service and food art.
Very cozy, small restaurant. It was like eating at someone's home. The food was delicious and great service. We enjoyed the music very much. Lovely experience, thank you!
The had a great experience, the food was amazing and the service outstanding. The Woodstock theme was a nice touch, we loved the music playlist. Thank you Nina, Chris & Natalia for a wonderful night. We will be back!
My wife and I visited Goosefoot for the second time, this time for my wife’s birthday, and we were pleased with every aspect. We were greeted at the door by Nina (one of the owners and wife of the Chris, the chef), seated and began a journey of 8 courses while sipping on a fine red that we had brought ourselves (it’s BYO). All courses are simply to die for... We began with the tastiest scallop/lobster/coconut milk dish that is easily the best we’ve ever had, and proceeded to then be blown away by each and every dish that followed. The crab/potato soup with sunflower froth was hearty and amazing, followed by Nina’s special pasta, complete with black truffle and pecorino in an amazing broth. (We were now feeling like we were close to capacity, which tells you how generous the dishes are...). We then closed out with the 4 more modest dishes that followed before concluding with our coffee. If you have the chance to experience this meal, while enjoying the service/attention of Nina and her small staff, don’t pass it up. We look forward to our return visit soon, as they will launch their new menu in April/May.
Absolutely not worth the cost.
Goosefoot is aging well. Their menu continues to bring outstanding presentations balanced with harmonious flavors and sumptuousness. Service if welcoming and friendly. Still one of the best values for tasting menus in Chicago - and the BYOB adds to that. A true gem for Chicago dining.
Chris and Nina take you to fantasyland! Wonderful experience! Joana from Uber have us the hint!! Luck we are!!!
Food and atmosphere were delightful. I would only ask that the servers speak clearly and slowly when describing the marvelous presentations.
We had a wonderful evening. Nina and staff could not have been nicer. The food and ambience were fabulous. A Special place to celebrate a Special occasion! Thank you
We had such a wonderful time, the food was delicious, great service and we love the Woodstock music theme. We purchased the wines from their wine store. The wines were great, we chose three 1/2 bottles and they paired perfectly with the menu. Highly recommend it, we will be back!
AMAZING MEAL! Highly recommended for all!!
Amazing experience!!! We felt special tonight. Exceptional service and ambience,
Goosefoot was an experience I will forever remember. They made our anniversary so special. Nina is so charming and made you feel like a long time friend. And the food - unreal. I can’t say enough about our time at goosefoot!
We went to goosefoot on March 1 and could not have been more delighted or surprised! The restaurant is very small and co-owner Nina personally greeted and waited on us - she even remembered my name when she came over to our table! Small details like this are so impressive.
The important part: the food. The food was EXCEPTIONAL! It was a perfect mix of innovative, comforting and filling. We loved the mushroom soup, which reminded us of an improved upon and different version of a French onion soup. It had a hearty and complex broth topped with a delicate foam. Another highlight was what felt like an upscale take on mac n' cheese, made with soft tortellini, in a warm and luscious cheese sauce/soup. It was topped with Parmesan and thinly shaved truffle. This was the best part as the truffle and Parmesan melted together onto the pasta.
All of it was balanced so well, and even among some of the top restaurants in Chicago, goosefoot stands out. It's the type of place that Chicagoans are lucky to be able to make a reservation and go to - in New York this place would be impossible to visit without a reservation 3 months in advance.
One thing to remember - you are at goosefoot for an experience and not just food. Dinner will probably take you a couple of hours - sit back and enjoy it.
Thank you, Nina and Chris for an amazing meal!
Goosefoot was a great experience for my girlfriend and I. The service was excellent, the food was good and the ambiance was first rate. We decided we will dine there every Valentines Day.
The food was amazing, the service stellar and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxing.
For another 100 dollars I would recommend them to Alinea. I was impressed with the first dish but once I got to the deserts I couldn't believe they would serve these dishes at a place like this.
Incredible. Just incredible.
Simply wonderful. The food and service was a perfect and delicate pairing of excellence.
Delicious! If you haven’t tried Goosefoot you’re really missing out. They are not only super talented and creative but filled with kindness. A++++++
Excellent! 8 course menu, although the 8th course is really a chocolate bar that we took home. The initial 4 courses were superb. Perfectly cooked scallop in a lobster sauce. Then a mushroom soup, which was out of this world - the best soup I've ever had, and a hearty size. 3rd was Nina's pasta, which is (I'm sure I'm getting this wrong), but a kind of tortellini with truffle, parmesan and pecorino cheese, in a broth, and lots of it - just excellent, fantastic flavor! Lots of food up to this point and I was thinking I'm getting full and we are only half done. But, the remainder were lighter and a bit more desert kind of courses. They were very good, and somewhat welcome as I could not have eaten 4 more course with the same amount of food. I'm not a dessert person, so harder for me to comment on these, but enjoyed them all. Also, Nina the host/part owner was an excellent host. It is pricy, but a very, very good meal. My wife and I enjoyed it immensely.
We were delighted to introduce 3 friends to the dining experience at Goosefoot. No question that this is the best restaurant in Chicago if you need to impress. It’s superb and humble, which is why this where I would take any VIP.
We’re blessed to have it here.
Keep going back to this gem because of the superb food. One of the best restaurants in Chicago. The chef is a genius along with his wife who delivers 100% every time.
An amazing place that makes you feel at home yet with a meal you won't find anywhere else. Nina is wonderful, she treats you like a good friend and special guest. The food was outstanding and creatively presented.
Fabulous New Year’s and anniversary celebration!. What an amazing experience!
Portions are huge!
Great food, great service
