    Nowhere on the web site did it say this is tapas style. Very overpriced for very small portions. Not really shareable even though that is what tapas should be. Also we tried calling several times to say we were running late and finally someone answered on third try and was not pleasant. We were told we would be charged an aggravation fee if we did not arrive within 15 minutes of our reservation. We were delayed for reasons beyond our control. Believe me we were the aggravated ones.

    The food was excellent but the restaurant is loud and not particularly inviting. We arrived on time for our reservation and were told a party was finishing at our table. 20min later our party of 3 was brought to an enormous “communal table” (which had been empty the entire time we waited), despite our previously requesting a smaller/out of the way table in advance due to one of our party being HoH. They asked in advance if we were celebrating an occasion, and I indicated we were celebrating a birthday, but there was no acknowledgement of that. So the reservation system, service and noisy atmosphere leaves much to be desired, but the food was excellent.

    The three of us were brought to sit at a table meant for two and crammed next to another couple. They pack you in even though the idea is to bring multiple shareable fishes. There simply wasn’t room to relax and enjoy one another or the dishes. Additionally, every dish started to taste the same with the same ingredients on top of chicken, steak, and pork…prepare for cucumbers, jalapeños, mint, and Asian sauce over and over again. Finally the prices were out of this world for how we sat and what we were served.

    Everything here is excellent. Wish there were more salad/veg options what weren’t smothered in sauce, it’s just nice to have the option. My all time fave is the hamachi crudo! A must visit anytime I am in the area.

    We were having a nice dinner until the manager asked us to hurry and choose our dessert because they had people waiting for the table. Our meal had been paced by the waitress and we were not eating slowly. They seated us at a 4 top not a 2 top. It was a very annoying ending to a nice dinner. Also, we had a reservation and were never told we had a time limit. There were other tables seated at the same time and I didn’t see them being rushed out. Very frustrating. Our waitress was lovely and was not the one who tried to hurry us.

    I understand the desire to create ambiance at night but the lighting was so low, I literally could not see the menu or my food while I was eating it. Just turn the lights up a smidge! Our waitress was competent but was a bit abrupt in her manner; it felt a little forced at times. The food was wonderful and the restaurant is beautiful; we very much enjoyed our time overall and would come back again!

    Love the Girl and the Goat. Food was delicious as always. Service tonight tho. Oh boy. Ok, restaurant opens at 4:30. Fine. We got there early (4) the doors were locked. That's fair. We walked across to Sugargoat and bought treats for later. At 4:20, about 17 of us were huddled in the wind break waiting to get in. It was cold and windy. We get it. We were earlyish. Let people inside. Service overall felt rushed. Efficient but rushed. We had bussers whisk out plates as I was eating my last bite. It got to be annoying. The table next to us got crudo they didn't order. My husband asked for a beer and got another cocktail. We'll be back, I'm sure. Maybe just not in the cold months.

    Very modern and electric atmosphere. We went on a Saturday night and you could barely find room at the bar. Luckily we found a spot and the bartender was extremely attentive and we ordered some bread and drinks while we were waiting for our table. Once we were seated, we were promptly greeted. We knew exactly what to order, and let me say, it did not disappoint! The steak melts in your moth, the lamb falls off the phone, the chicken is soft like butter and the veggies are super fresh. I could come here everyday! Dessert was eh, that's the only knock.

    We chose this place based on the reviews we had seen. The food was incredible! Every dish had a unique taste and flavor. Our waitress also gifted us the Chickpea appetizer which was out of this world. I don't think that I have ever had such tasty chickpeas. If we lived in Chicago, we would have been regulars at this place.

    Almost goes without saying these days, but all of the food was excellent. The Hamachi was prepared with really complex flavors, the goat empanadas were fantastic, and who can go wrong with a goat-cheese cheese plate. Our drinks were also fun and special.

    The hype is worth it. You could blindly pick anything off the menu and it would be incredible still. Maybe cocktails being 17 bucks is not the dream, but it is an upscale restaurant. Definitely would recommend.

    We thought every dish was a hit. Wonderful to be able to share plates so we could try so many dishes. We were a table of 4 and got 11 dishes - probably one too many. But note, we got many proteins. The pacing of the meal was a bit off but the food made up for it. Looking forward to coming back!

    The food was amazing, the goat empanadas are the best thing, chickpea fritters are a must and also the goat cheese board with blueberry jam and spiced nuts totally worth it. It takes a lot of time to be seated even with reservation but at the end you won't regret the wait.

    It was a little loud and difficult to hear the waiter explaining the dishes. The food was brought out promptly. We had 4 people and it was recommended to get 10 dishes to share. I was thinking the portions would be smaller than they were. We would have been fine with just 8 dishes. Food was delicious.
