restaurant is closed
They Closed!!!! Permanently and they are still on Open Table. I loved this place and was so looking forward to have my cheat meal and the doors were closed. I’m so sad! I’ve brought so many people to this place......
Menu items were not available. Had to order 4th option as nothing was available. Only 1 serving of the “special” was available at 6:00 p.m. on a Friday and we were the only ones in the place. Happy hour drinks were misrepresented. First time and last time for us.
The food we received was very good, it came out periodically, so we all ended up sharing. One of the main courses never showed up after being told it would be out in a couple of minutes for about 45minutes. The wait staff tried their best, it appeared there was only one person working the whole kitchen. The food we had did have great taste, so consider this like a tapas place and plan on sharing.
Wonderful food and drinks in a fun and funky atmosphere. Service was friendly and accommodating. Large portions and really reasonable prices. Eclectic menu that is great for sharing. Can’t wait to go back to try some of the other dishes.
Me and my girlfriend felt like home, The food was amazing, the staff was great!
We had not been here for a year, but had a great experience the first time. Decided to go to the Goat for dinner and drinks... What a change! Think about this for a second, we were the ONLY table in the place at 7pm on a Saturday night in Boca Raton... in high-season... we should have walked out then...
The food was awful. The so-called onion rings were a mess... Ha, where was the onion?
The fried chicken had what had to be a one-inch crust of something. Ha, how about more than 3 oz of a chicken breast next time.
It's sad because we had a fond recollection of the place... off the list...
What this must have become is a pure drinking bar where people do not show up until 10pm. How else could they still be in business?
I came in on Friday night for an important business meeting. As usual the goat did not disappoint, nice crowd, energetic atmosphere, and interesting menu choices. My clients and I loved the food, drinks, and service we received. We shared the chicken and corn cakes, pigs and elbows, octopus, shrimp and grits, fried mash potatoes, and brussel sprouts. Everything was delicious and I will definitely be bringing more of my clients here from now on.
My wife and I dined here on Saturday night...had read some good reviews on Open Table.
The food is outrageous...after drinks, we shared 3 dishes-Osso Busco, Snapper, and the fried Calamari. Brian the owner and chef is putting out creative and unbelievably great cuisine.
The restaurant's vibe is very cool along with great music from the 60's & 70's.
Highly recommended for those wanting something different than your average eating establishment. We can't wait to come eat here again.
It was a slow night. There were a total of 10 people in the entire restaurant. I was on a date. But we waited over 30 minutes for our food. The food was undercooked.
It’s a pub atmosphere for sure. Check the menu before you go. It’s filled with adventurous twists but everything we tried was delicious. The king’s fix (spoiler alert) pb, bacon and banana is the bomb. If you like these ingredients individually you will love the combo on Texas toast (have them leave the garlic off the toast)
Anytime I have a group get together and someone in the group hasn’t been here I make this the place! I love the food, the vibe and whole experience!
We went for our Christmas dinner and it was fantastic. Food was interesting and everything was executed well. They wound up giving is a few chefs treats which was both welcomed and delicious. We finished the evening with tableside s'mores which was a first.
Big time recommended.
Came in with the wife for dinner after a recommendation from a friend. Was greeted by a very friendly staff and a very cool atmosphere. We started with two of the specialty cocktails and really enjoyed them both. We then ordered a few items to share. The octopus was one of the best we have had. Also had the bacon fondue and the shrimp and grits. Both were excellent. We will definitely be back. One of our new favorites. Recommend to anyone in the area.
Faith is amazing. She was as charming as she was beautiful. Great service.
As a restaurant, it was not a good experience. But as a bar, I think I will enjoy going there in the future.
I should have known better when our group of four was seated on a Saturday night and there was only one other table with people. The rest of the people there were drinking at the bar.
With so few people, it was surprising when we learned that they were out of things listed on the menu.
The food was VERY good. However, the service was TERRIBLE. We sat down at 7:30 and was not served our entrees until 9:00 PM. And they were served in starts and stops. The first entree arrived twenty minutes before the last entree arrived.
I definitely will go back when I am with a crowd who want a really good late night snack, but never again as a place to have dinner.
Everything I eat here is amazing and cooked when I order. The price is great and the the variety is awesome! They sometimes run out of my favorites but it always opens me up to another yummy experience! Love everything! The burgers, octopus, fish, fried Oreos, tacos the list goes on!
My husband & I came in for my birthday. We were blown away by the food & specialty drinks. We shared the shrimp & grits & the fried chicken & corn cakes, both were amazing. We'll definitely be back soon.
Such an awesome place. The food was amazing. We had the wings, the escargot, the short rib and the shrimp and grits. All of it was amazing. The seasoning was perfect. The bartender made us the honey badger bourbon drink and the watermelon jalapeño drink. They were so good. Definitely going back.
Amazing experience!! I love everything about the vintage vibe of The Goat. The menu is unlike anything you will find in South Florida. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helped us pick out some special dishes and DELICIOUS cocktails and craft beers. The chef came to our table to talk with us and gave us insight into his amazing menu. Go to the Goat...now!!
Every opportunity I have to bring a new person to the Goat I will. The owner/chef never disappoints.
The menu is really interesting and the food is really good. The hospitality and the service was an added bonus. I got the vibe that the staff was working hard and aimed to please. The restaurant really captures the essence of the gastropubs in Chicago. Overall, it was a great experience and I'll certainly be coming back.
My main course came out Before the appetizers , they said the good comes out when it's ready, that's how the chef works. I was finished 30 min before anyone got their food , then it was another 45 min
Poor service, ordered dry vodka martini, no vermouth! Waitress forgot to put in 1 of 2 entrees!
Open table allows us to make a reservation for a Monday night. We drove all the way out there to the restaurant only to find out it is closed on Monday nights
Could use some cloth napkins to bring the table decor up to par with the food and whole experience. Everything we tasted and drank was delicious. Service was a little slow in the beginning.
One of my favorite places to take people who have never been! The food never disappoints. The chef/owner is friendly and takes pride in his restaurant. The staff are friendly and the place has a chill vibe.
Service was very strange. Food was exceptional. Beware of the spontaneously rotating table tops. Would return for good quality/value and bar staff service.
Were curious about this place and wanted to try gor a while :casual atmosphere, crafty cocktails and friendly service.
We choose 2 appetizers to start (mussels and brown sugar and Bourbon pork belly).
Pork was overcooked and crust totally black leaving solely in our mouth the bitterness taste of a burned pan.
So moving on into the mussels, they were also overcooked, presented in a plate with no both drawing in a mixture of onions.
First bite and I hit a couple of pieces of broken shell along with a big chewy overcooked mussel.
We left appetizers on top of each other. Paid our check and finish our evening elsewhere.
This place is not the same anymore really gone down hill
Food was spectacular. Honest
I knew going in (from other reviews) that this place prides itself on being different. Our server made that evident immediately. Part of his opening pitch, right after giving his name, is to tell you that they're a "gastro pub," and, if you want the same old restaurant same old, then you should probably go somewhere else. This includes presentation, menu choices, and drink selection. He wasn't obnoxious about it, but he clearly also wasn't kidding (even though the place had literally one customer in it when we showed up, at a normal dinner hour).
The menu items are, indeed, fairly unusual. Some of these things weren't on the menus I saw online, and some of what I saw online was no longer on their menu, which is a shame, bcz there were a few items I saw online that I would've liked to try but couldn't. So, obviously, they rotate items periodically.
For our group of four, we had five dishes and a dessert, all family style. Each item we had had something we agreed was quite good (like a sauce, the addition of cinnamon, texture of the polenta, etc.), but none of us was blown away by any one dish in its entirety. Someone there clearly loves bacon. I do, too, but let's face it... there's such a thing as too much.
Overall, I liked the place. We ate and drank enough but not too much. No left-overs. Interesting change from the usual fare. We were able to talk and hear each other, even after the place started to fill up. Good location. Relaxed ambiance. So, for just under $200 all-in for our group, I'd say it's a reasonable value for what you get. That said, I'm not sure whether I'll be back anytime soon.
Great little restaurant with a unique menu. My wife and I went for the first time with another couple, and there were so many interesting and unusual food items we all wanted to try. We ordered three appetizers, two entrees, and one vegetable side, and shared them all. The drink menu was just as eclectic.
The food was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!
The Goat has its strong points and its weak points. It has a fun funky decor which we both enjoyed. Our waiter stressed the gastropub "we're not your standard bar and grill" atmosphere of the place to the extreme. If you're going to do that though, you really have to deliver and the Goat hits and misses in that respect. My wife's request for a Long Island Tea was met with a "we don't do standard bar drinks, we do handcrafted cocktails" response. When I opted for one (the Pioneer), it was honestly so vile I couldn't drink more than a couple of sips. We settled for a bottle of wine for the rest of our meal.
The food was hit and miss. The Wild Mushroom and Burratta Cheese Bruscetta was excellent, as were the Pork Taquitos. On the other hand, the highly recommended Brussels Sprouts and Fried Kale were greasy (fried kale needs to be well drained) and the Swordfish over Polenta special was tasty but one-note, badly needing some acidity to offset the rich sauce and creamy polenta. The fish, on the other hand, was cooked perfectly.
Our final verdict was...good but not necessarily a place we would go back to. A place with great potential, it just needs to get over itself a little bit and refine its dishes. And please don't be too good to do the classic cocktails...they are classic for a reason.
Really enjoyed everything except for one dish, the fish.
The food here is absolutely phenomenal! I truly hope more people give this restaurant a try because it is a true gem and don't want it to go away. Service is impeccable and the food is out of this world. Dont let the name throw you off, there is way more than goat. TRY THIS RESTAURANT!!!
I'll give them another shot but there were some issues with service. When I arrived at the restaurant, we were told that the A/C was out and were offered a seat outside or we could sweat it out inside. We choose outside. Our server seemed to be a bit overwhelmed with the situation even though there were very few tables (that we could see). The main issue being is that our final dish was dropped at our table and we didn't see anyone for over 30 minutes, at a gastropub style restaurant where dishes come out as they are done rather than as a group, this was not good.
We did relay out bad vibe to the right people and still provided an appropriate tip (I don't believe in stiffing a waiter period) . This is the second time we've had service issues here, though it had been over a year since our last bad experience. That said we don't make it down there often because it is expensive (on the lower end of expensive but you do pay for what you get). I hope that this issue isn't repeated. And next time the A/C is out, consider closing for the night and reaching out to anyone who had a reservation already.
I would still recommend checking this place out, but would be wary if trying to impress somebody on a first day due to potential issues we've seen.
My girlfriend came here and dined with another couple. Let me tell you, this place is a total Gem! We decided to share a couple of plates. Started off with the Brussels sprouts and fried kale then the fried mashed potatoes (which I thought were gonna be my favorite but read on...). Then came out the brown sugar and bourbon pork belly. It has great taste but a little fatty for me and I like pork fat! Then we had the goat pot pie which was not gamey at all and had good flavor. The bacon and cheese fondue came out next. Bacon and cheese....need I say more. Ordered two orders of the duck confit tacos. That order ended up taking quite a long time however, they were made fresh to order. The chef ended up sending some double deep fried turkey wings and comped the tacos. The duck tacos ended up being amazing! My favorite by far! You have to remember though that you are at a gastropub. Gastropubs offer made to order food often with limited quantity and dishes come out as they are ready. In addition to the incredible food, all the drinks are hand crafted with a mixologist flare. Compliments to the chef and Sean our waiter for an incredible evening.
A special bonus: they make home made real deal absinthe! (Limit two per person but I don't think you need more than that)
Really interesting and delicious food!
When we arrived, we were told that they only had one waiter working and it would be a bit of a wait. We decided to sit and order drinks. We were placed near the kitchen by the host. When we asked him what the fish special was, he asked the chef who could be seen cooking from where we were sitting. We overheard the chef yelling to the host that he didn't know what the fish special was!! We decided to get up and leave.
