First - On the positive side our server was nice. Don't see how this restaurant gets such high scores. Four in our party. My meatloaf was raw -the first piece was just pink but when I cut into second piece it was actually uncooked. It was covered in gravy. Don't know how the chef did not see that when slicing.... More

The food was ok. When we were there it wasn't very busy; however, we didn't seem to be a priority to anyone. Being a small business owner ourselves in a different state, we are aware of customer service. We feel this place falls short of good customer service.

Note the restaurant closes at 8pm which is early to me. Great staff and food. Good location with ample parking. Outside seating is on the street side of the building so noisy. Cool place though with live entertainment.

Our VRBO recommended the Golden Goose and left a note the the menu had been refreshed. We had no idea! We were expecting typical Denny's fare (based on the old menu), but we enjoyed filet mignon (we could have cut with a fork) and tiger shrimp grilled in garlic and lemon sauce. Service was good. Live classic guitar. No regrets:... More

Thank you for your review. I would love to know where you stayed so we can drop a new menu for them to share with their guests. It sounds like they have a menu from when we first opened seven years ago. We have evolved from a dressed up cafe, to a bistro to what we are now -- an... More

Buggers, some pasta, sandwiches at a price about average for Sedona. Service is a bit on the slow side and the decor is a bit to much on the dark brown side for my taste, but if your looking for burgers in the $12 to $16 range you might consider this place.

The service was first class of the entire staff but Chelsea our waitress was one of the I ever had. She was very attentive and knowable of the menu. Food selections were plenty and prices are reasonable. Music 4 days a week and a casual atmosphere. You must try this Resturants.

We were looking for someplace different for dinner our last night in Sedona and settled on the Golden Goose after reading some reviews. The service was excellent from the time we entered until we left, despite the fact that the restaurant was a little crowded (more on that later). My wife had the ginger lime glazed salmon which was good,... More

Thank you for your review. Typically the noise level in our restaurant, even when completely packed with guests, is at an acceptable level that still allows for conversation at the table. However, sometimes when there are very large parties of 30 or more there is a lot of chatter going on all at the same time and the noise level... More

We selected this restaurant because its menu sounded good. We were very tired and did not want to drive far from our hotel. We were seated at a table for 4 but 3 of the chairs were broken in the seats. I tried to move them around to find a more comfortable one without success. When the server came, I... More
