    We have been at this restaurant many times and it was always a 4-5 stars on everything. The food was amazing as always. We had the green beens, the short rib dish, the halibut, cheek pea fritters, the pig face, and broccoli. Our favorites were the green beans, halibut, and the short rib. Then we ordered the plantain tres leches (amazing!!!) and the praline dessert. We had great staff bringing the food from the kitchen and explaining all dishes. The only problem was our main waiter, Florentino, who was very aggressive in the way he spoke to us, and was upset when we asked another waiter to add a dish. He also was pushing us to order 10-12 dishes even though we said we’ve been there many times. He spoke to us in a very condescending manner. The other issue I am opposed to, is to be charged an additional 3% for nothing. We are ALL suffering from inflation. It’s not nice to just add a charge and put all on the customer, the very people supporting your business. I had that 3% taken off and it was. I tipped the waiter 20% of the total in spite of his attitude.

    We had a great time at Girl & the Goat. Visiting Chicago we knew we had to have a meal here. We ordered the the green beans, Ora King salmon, and the pork shank for two people. We were stuffed and very happy with the meal. Everything tasted amazing and tasted very fresh.

    Overall, it was great. My boyfriend and I had been to Duck Duck Goat and was expecting a similar experience at Girl & the Goat. The only thing was that the service was way more casual than we expected. It took a while to get water refilled & to get our servers' attention at times. Still a great experience, just a little confused on the service standards.

    Overall good experience. Folks should be aware that food is tapas-style, and some dishes are saltier than others (e.g., green beans, chicken skewers, etc. were salty). Home runs included the beets, chickpea fritters, and olive bread. Drinks and salmon (without salty shrimpy sausage) were good as well. We could have skipped the liver mousse, broccoli, and pretzel bread. Would go again to get a desired group photo with Chef Steph!

    The highlights of our meal were the cocktails (particularly the Cat’s Pajamas and Kind of a Big Dill) and the Pork Shank dish, which was a generously sized portion of pork, although we wished they gave more of the accoutrements (cucumber salad & apple kimchi). We also had the pork face, which was delicious but on the small side, and the goat empanadas, which were flavourful but we felt not worth the $22 price tag for only two empanadas. The restaurant was also very loud which made it hard to hear each other, mostly because of the loud music playing overhead.

    My friend and I had reservations and were sat at the food prep counter. We couldn’t even visit because of where we were seated (not a table, a countertop off of prep kitchen). It honestly felt like sensory overload with the restaurant and normal seating behind us whilst the chaos of food prep in the kitchen. My meat eating friend thoroughly enjoyed her entrees. However, I’m a vegetarian and there were little to no options (even asking the waitress). She said I could do the shrimp salad without the shrimp but that it was the only entree that could be altered to adhere to my dietary restrictions. I ended up ordering naan and fire roasted broccoli. My total including a mimosa and without gratuity was $77. Not the best experience 🥲

    We went out to celebrate my Wife’s birthday. Everything was amazing. Except the seating. We sat at the kitchen bar seats. It’s very noisy and waiters/waitresses are constantly coming passed to grab food. The kitchen screaming orders back and forth. It’s impossible to have an actual conversation with your date. Our waiter Oscar was amazing. Everything he recommended was equally amazing. The food did not disappoint. The prices were reasonable. They also have valet for only $20. The valet takes credit card.
