“Wow.”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

It was a special night out for us - celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I had heard great things about Goosefoot and wanted to try it. Let me get the only negatives out first: it is difficult to get into (books quickly), it is in a somewhat sketchy part of town, and it is not cheap. Now for the positives. The husband and wife team that run the restaurant are some of the nicest people you will meet. The service is impeccable. The food is absolutely amazing. While the portions are small - there are a lot of them - you will leave very satisfied. It is a BYOB establishment so bring your favorite wine(s). Settle in for a dining adventure. It was a wonderful experience and we can't wait to go back!

“CAN YOU SPELL WOW?”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

Of course you can! Coming from Philly we are home to quite a few BYOBs. This, if it was in Philly, would probably be # 1. Creative works of art with the finest ingredients is what you will get. 9 courses, $135 pre fixe. Excellent service. Scallop, chestnut soup, duck. So beautiful is the food you will want to take pictures...which we did! Was tough to snag a resie but persistence paid off. One of my top 5 dining experiences of all time.

“Unforgettable experience”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Nina and Chris Nugent make your visit to their restaurant even more special with their warm and personal service and incredible food.Their nondescript location near a strip mall is completely forgotten once you enter the small, nicely decorated restaurant and take in the artistry of the food that is presented. Reservations are hard to get, we got ours 2 months in advance on Opentable. The restaurant has since retained their Michelin Star from the previous year.

“Fantastic Food & Experience”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here on a Wednesday night. We were given what we felt was the best (most private) table in the small dining area. Every aspect of our dinner was great as the food was spectacular, service was spot on and the ambiance was very pleasant. Night was topped off by having a great chat with the owner and given signed menus by the chef. Would recommend to anyone.

“great experience and food”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Reservations can be difficult but worth the trouble at this small friendly almost homey restaurant. With chef Chris Nugent in the kitchen and his wife Nina handling the desk they come acros as honored that you have come to dine with them. Knowledgable wait staff, not at all pretentious for the food being served and the added bonus of being able to bring your own wine make this one of Chicago's best. don't miss it.
