    As advertised, the food was wonderful. The loud music made it difficult to talk. The table we were at was wide enough that we had to talk loudly to hear each other. Turn the music down so people can talk while they really enjoy your food. Thanks. Oh, and get off my lawn.

    Great salads/veggies/fish. Lamb Ribs were incredibly fatty, almost inedible. Rest of the food was fantastic. But for lamb ribs would give 5 stars.

    I am cautious about spending money on "fine dining" from a celebrity chef. We don't know how much of their reputation is talk and how much is truth. After eating 9 different plates at the Girl and the Goat I can say with conviction that Stephanie Izard's reputation is fact. Every single plate was a delight in every bite. As my wife and I sampled each new dish we stared at each other dumbfounded at the shear number of flavors playing in our mouths then closed our eyes to savor their marriage into unique themes as we chewed and swallowed. Don't even get me started on the desserts! After experiencing the truth of her blueberry shortcake I am ruined to all other confections. It was like seeing Disneyland for the first time after spending your life in the local Shell station bathroom.

    The wife and I decided to give this place a try provided the numerous positive reviews and recommendations from friends for something that is must visit when we're in Chicago for our vacation. Despite sitting on the patio, we find that the ambience of the place is great, very eclectic, warm and inviting. However, we find that the food can be much better given the rapport of this place. We ordered the goat empanadas, shrimp salad, goat ribs and the green beans. The empanadas were okay as we found that theres too much going on with the sauce. The shrimp Salad brighten things up and definitely our favourite item whereas the infamous green beans was to be found way too salty (and I can handle salt). The ribs unfortunately were underwhelming given that the green beans overtook the flavour already. We relay the feedback to our server and he indicated that saltiness for the green beans are expected and have shared that some customers provided same feedback in the past. While we don't expect free food or anything, I'm surprised that our feedback is just taken lightly and as if it doesn't mean anything and that left a salty taste in our mouth (figuratively and literally) esp. given the value that we have to pay. There's many other great establishments in Chicago so if I would choose I may not have not chosen this place in the first place as we celebrated our first travel in the past 2 years due to the pandemic.

    Duck tartar was excellent. Shrimp Avacado with Crisp Quinuo was a bit too vinegar in my view, but still delicious. Skirt steak was very good. Overall, very good food. Purple Pig wins in my view.

    We had an awesome time in at Girl and the Goat. Shania took excellent care of us. Food was amazing. The only constructive feedback would be the people collecting the old plates or checking to see if we were done came by a bit too often. Thank you!

    College reunion with near and dears. Been to plenty of Michelin-star restaurants and this is the best restaurant I’ve eaten at in a long time. Stephanie Izard is a genius. Her flavor combinations are totally unexpected and so compelling. Do. Not. Miss.

    This was the second time dining here for a birthday occasion. Food was good but not as expected for the level of dining and price paid. Ordered some cocktails and green beans, halibut, chili crunch chicken, and goat belly. The green beans were overrated (6/10). Chili chicken crunch was decent (7/10). The halibut and goat belly were good (8/10). Would not order the green beans again. Rarely saw our waitress, saw other servers/bus’ers at our table more tha. Waitress. Overall an okay experience.

    The food is absolutely extraordinary! We particularly enjoyed the halibut, green beans and goat belly. Wines by the glass are quite pricey and the pours are very modest, so be prepared. We spent $64 on four glasses, which in most restaurants would have measured about three glasses or less.

    This was my first time at the restaurant. It was a good atmosphere overall, however the service could have been better. The kitchen was behind however that was explained away by how busy it was. We waited approximately 10 minutes just to get the menu. The waiter seemed as if he couldn't handle how many tables he was tasked with. What the waiter lacked in efficiency the kitchen made up for in quality of food. It was by far the best cut of steak I've had in quite a long time. I would definitely recommend to all to go to Girl and the Goat.
