Welcome This is our story

We jokingly refer to the Running Goose as “Hollywood’s intermezzo” because when you’re on our patio, either next to the fire pit or overlooking the garden, it’s easy to be refreshed from the hustle, bustle, and noise of Hollywood Boulevard. 
Our dream is to serve you cuisine that genuinely reflects Los Angeles. We start with a base note of Central American influence then feather in culinary stylings from across the globe. 

All of these cultural influences work together to offer you something truly beautiful.

Our Quality We promise the best quality


LA Weekly

“There are certain restaurants you visit and wonder How haven’t I heard about this place? That’s how I felt after recently wandering into Running Goose, a cozy spot in Hollywood that’s been developing a quiet following in the year or so since it opened. Known for its cozy, light-strung patio, its eclectic menu of Central American–leaning small plates and its $15 pitchers of sangria, Running Goose has plenty going for it” – Garrett Snyder

The ZAGAT Review

“Using ingredients from its own organic herb garden, this Cahuenga Corridor spot turns out inventive, globally inspired small plates including salt cod churros and Baja mussels with grapefruit and jalapeño. A charming shaded patio and comfy indoor banquettes in the main dining room complete the casual, eclectic vibe”.

TimeOut Los Angeles

“Tucked away from the ebb and flow (but mostly flow) of tourists on Hollywood Boulevard is The Running Goose, a casual patio restaurant on Cahuenga Boulevard. The menu is mostly focused on Central America (note the tostada selection), but there is a slew of other dishes like pork cheeks and blood sausage, smoked potatoes and spot prawns. A fine selection of beer and wine is available, to be enjoyed by the restaurant’s garden that will, if only momentarily, make you forget you’re in the entertainment capital of the world”.

Our Commitment Here at the Running Goose, we pride ourselves on using seasonal and sustainable ingredients. All of our bread, pastries, ice creams, sausages, bacon, jams, chutneys, and pickles are handcrafted daily. Enjoy!
