Girl & the Goat
Girl & the Goat opened in 2010 with the goal of serving a family style menu of tasty, bold flavored foods in a fun and lively setting. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, a rotating list of craft beers, and a list of fun cocktails created by our bartenders.
Located at 809 W Randolph, Girl & the Goat was one of the first establishments in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor. We offer dinner service Monday through Sunday. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.

I have eaten a lot of places all over the country, and throughout the world, and this is hands down one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Incredible!
All of the food was delicious and the service was exceptional!
Every bite was delicious! Servers and front of house were excellent.
The pork shank was delicious; generous amount of meat and everything went well together. The service was just okay; would’ve liked the waitress to have a friendlier demeanor.
It was a bit slower than a before COVID dining experience. We were fine with it although the last course, coffee and dessert was very delayed and we needed to leave. We are not being negative as we understand the current situation.
Delicious! We loved all of our food and our server recommendations were awesome! Would definitely come back.
Found that there was a lot of Asian influence in the dishes we tried which made us very happy. Staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. Dim lighting sets the mood for a date. The open kitchen being lit up it draws your attention to watch the food being prepared. Definitely would like to eat here again if I’m fortunate to snag another reservation.
I’ve been trying to get a reservation years before the pandemic and it’s always booked 3 months in advance. I was lucky to get in this time amidst the pandemic!... The food was absolutely fantastic! Everything was so delicious and our server, Gary, was very helpful and jolly helping us decide the best food to order. It makes our 1st experience eating here more fun and memorable. My friend visiting from Nebraska was so impressed with the food, ambience and our great server. Everyone was very friendly and we were greeted well as we enter. Highly recommended this place! Hope to come back soon!
Great food as always. Our waiter was awesome and we were separated from other tables, which felt comfortable!
The food and service was amazing! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Loved the setting and the service we got at Girl and the Goat. Our meal was delicious. Highlights were the Goat Belly with crab and the sticky pork. Soooooo good!
Girl and the Goat lived easily lived up to the hype
This was my first time and celebrated my birthday with friends. So awesome! Service and food was fantastic and they were able to accommodate my husbands dietary needs without making him feel like an outcast!! Olven was an incredible server and I can’t wait to come back again.
Not sure if this was still a worthy spot, its been in the limelight for years now. But, as soon as we tasted a couple of dishes we knew why this is at the top. Great food and drinks...OK desserts but we were over the top by then. The shrimp salad and pig face were awesome.
Good for a date night. Tasty and fast moving. Very chatty but nice service
Just a wonderful experience~ from the greeting to waitstaff, food was delicious. If you are looking for a great dining experience give this place a go!
Excellent dinner experience.
Outstanding as usual. It's change a bit with COVID though- portions don't seem to be the same and they got rid of some popular items which is disappointing. I wish them the best though as the food is just terrific- they mix ingredients that the average person wouldn't even think of mixing.
Awesome service and delicious food!! The pork shank was the best I have ever had. Highly recommend!
Food is good. Small servings. Service is great. Friendly staff
Had a nice evening out for a birthday. Service was excellent, staff was kind, and food was not only delicious, but served quickly! Holds its place as one of my favorite restaurants!
Food was spectacular, we had a dish that was released that evening and our server solicited our feedback. Service was very attention and overall just a wonderful experience
Thank you Girl and the Goat for a fantastic evening. From the minute we walked in until we left, the attention to detail was there. It was so nice to be back eating inside and enjoying the Girl and the Goat favorites. The Salmon Poke was off the charts !
2nd visit! My birthday! Delicious halibut and hubby had pork dish. Great green beans! Not a fan of the brioche. Dessert was different. Tahini Ice cream excellent and buttery cheese cake excellent. I will say a wonderful server with pleasant conversation and very welcoming.
Amazing and special meal. We will definitely return!
Our dinner was amazing & our server was super attentive and helpful!
It was fabulous!
Delicious food, great atmosphere.
Our server, Logan, was helpful, attentive, and very kind. He was great. The manager, Einstein, was also hospitable. My party and I really enjoyed our first indoor dining service since pre-covid as Girl and the Goat created a safe environment. Food, per usual, was excellent.
Great food, great staff, great ambience, perfect date night!
Very nice and unique taste of food. Servers were great. Small portions, great for tasting and sharing. My 17 and 12 years old children even enjoyed it.
I had a wonderful experience at Girl and the Goat. The food and service was excellent. We had a wonderful family celebration.
Excellent food, fabulous service, great cocktails. The only thing is that the room was cold ~ it's hard to fully enjoy a meal when your uncomfortable due to cold temperatures
We were celebrating our birthdays and we both enjoyed every aspect of our evening at Girl and the goat.
Delicious food,service and ambiance! A must go to for those coming from out of town!
We had a fantastic experience. Do yourself a favor and order the green beans. Phenomenal! Thanks for a lovely evening.
Food was outstanding. Cute space and very helpful/friendly waiter.
The food was Excellent, and the service was outstanding. I would definitely go there again.
The halibut dish was our favorite. A delicious medley of so many good things on one plate. I can hardly contain my appetite as I took each bite. Definitely worth a try!
Food is small plates we got 3 dishes each to share and left full.
