Llegue una hora antes y amablemente me pasaron a una mesa. Fue mi cumpleaños y la mesera fue un sueño! Súper atenta, amable y graciosa. Ella u el demás staff del restaurante hicieron una experiencia inolvidable
Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our time at Girl & the Goat. The only real issue we had was price to proportion of the dishes. While the dishes (i.e., the size of tapas) were amazing, the amount of food on some of the dishes was a bit overpriced.
Again though, we had a great time just wish the price for the dishes were a bit more reasonable.
Creative, wonderful food and excellent service. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. I live in NYC and this rivaled some of the very best meals I've had here. The chickpea fritter things were to die for, as was the Hamachi crudo. Wish we'd had room for dessert because they all looked amazing as they went past to the table next to us!
Always LOVE my experience. Some of the dishes were a little too salty this time around.
Such a great establishment. Creative cuisine, absolutely delicious. No culinary disappointments whatsoever. A bit too crowded and noisy to support personal conversations. Arguably the best restaurant I have been to in Chicago ( after living there for 15 years).
Amazing food and service!! loved the place.
I’ve been to girl & the goat before and LOVED it so i wanted to share this gem with a friend who was visiting. We got lucky & Got a last minute reservation. Once seated we asked for some recommendations from our waiter because we were a little overwhelmed. He said he did not want to give us any as it was important to choose on our own. He was not interested in helping us out at all. AT ALL. It was so incredibly odd & uncomfortable. It felt as if he did not want us there.
We ordered a lot of options. One was the ahi & one was the crispy short ribs. I could live off ahi & short ribs-so I was excited. But unfortunately the ahi was very fishy & the short ribs were incredibly gamey. The only item i thoroughly enjoyed was the shisito peppers-INDANELY DELICIOUS. I was very underwhelmed by the food & the service. That dinner has left a very bad taste in my mouth for what used to be my favorite restaurant in Chicago.
The kitchen created fantastic and creative food. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive. I would highly recommend!
Great restaurant. Fantastic food, drinks and service.
We had an unpleasant experience after being denied a popular entree only to see the adjacent table receive the entree despite ordering 15 minutes later. Otherwise, excellent all the way around.
I've been waiting for months to get into Girl & the Goat, and it did NOT disappoint. We had great cocktails and food, our server was able to offer suggestions and I loved the diverse options available on the menu! I can't wait to go back again.
First time here— amazing food! Fancy menu, small menu with small portions served- meant to be shared. Each dish was better than the last and the feel of the restraunt is somewhat casual (jeans definitely acceptable) which I liked given the dining is more upper end and usually if dining is fancy than so is the ambiance. GREAT service and awesome food. They paired things together the average person wouldn’t know tasted good together in one dish but somehow do. Not for someone who is looking for a basic American meal, as the options are a little funky (see menu before booking).. but even so, the food items sound one way and end up tasting another- in a Good way!
Fantastic! The service was great and food was very delicious!
Never disappoints. Had the pork shank which was amazing as always. Took a friend who was intimidated by the menu and she loved it! I can't wait to go back.
Loved this restaurant, other than the noise level. We had a hard time hearing each other. We're in our 60's, so maybe it's our hearing. We had the blue point smoked oysters, cauliflower, green beans and duck tongue. All dishes were lovely with our favorite being the cauliflower. At the bar before dinner we had Ring of fire, which was delicious and Dolce vita, a little too medicinal for my taste. We look forward to a return visit to try different menu items.
As good as the reviews said it would be! Excellent.
The food was wonderful, all share-able and well done. The perogies were superb, and the desserts should not be missed.
We arrived on time, was seated right away. We ordered Tapas style with many different selections and they were all very good. The wait staff is very attentive, informative and fast. We felt like part of the family and we will return very soon. The value is great and oh yeah the cocktails were the best!
The pork shank is to die for, though the kimchee sauce could have a bit more kick. Love the cauliflower. Seating is too tight and more craft beers on tap.
Amazing drinks and scrumptious food! Save room for dessert because the toffee cake and gooseberries is mega-delicious!
My only real complaint is that the kitchen line appears to be all white. There was one African American who came through restocking pans. I like to think this is not in purpose but surely this takes effort in a place like Chicago.
Initially we were a little taken aback because we sat at the Chefs table, when the night was intended for an intimate birthday dinner. However, it was pretty neat conversing with the chefs (Sam and Cole were very knowledgeable and entertaining) and seeing all the food being prepared. The food was delicious!! We absolutely loved the crispy short ribs and bucatini!! The chicken wasn’t what we were expecting and definitely something we will leave out next time we dine. We practically rolled out of the restaurant we were so full!!
Finally....after years of attempting to get a table in order to entertain customers at this top Chicago hot spot, my timing must have been perfect....this restaurant surpassed my expectations. With 3 people, we shared 6 small diverse plates across their spectrum of offerings, and 2 deserts. The verdict...Over the top.
Service and food was truly o OUTSTANDING!
Dinner with my sister
Amazing. Devon was fantastic. Food was delicious, though the perogies were not our favorite. I am a picky eater and I have no problem adjusting a meal to my liking.... my advice for every other picky eater. Don’t change a thing! Eat everything as it comes and with all the extras it comes with; that’s how it was intended to be eaten. We will be back. Thank you for a lovely date night with my husband. PS. I think the biscuits should be sold in bulk. They are the clouds in my dreams.
We made reservations for this gem three months out in advance. What a superb experience. Drinks, although a bit on the high side, where well prepared. Selection from menu and specials where varied, and all appeasing! Our waitstaff was very attentive, and knowledgeable! When we visit Chicago again, this will be on our repeat list!
Girl and the Goat lives up to the hype. We had a fantastic meal - the short ribs may have been the best I've ever had and the sweet potatoe cake with caramel ice cream was awesome. Service was excellent and we are already planning the next date. Reservations are a must - plan ahead!
Food was absolutely top notch, service was impeccable, ambiance was energetic but quiet. Loved everything about it! Thank you!
Yum! Figure on 2-3 selections per diner, make sure everyone has no qualms about sharing, and enjoy a spectacular meal!
Fantastic food, great environment
Awesome experience. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend
It was epic.
One of our favorite meals out together. Our server was incredibly helpful answering questions and offerings suggestions. Noise level was perfect - could easily converse at our table but wasn’t so quiet where we could hear everyone else’s words. Loved the background music, too! Exceptional, unique food without being intimidating. Can’t recommend highly enough.
This restaurant always fascinates me. The flavor combinations are mind blowing. And I'm a vegetarian. She's a genius.
Still one of the hottest restaurants in Chicago. Despite being late for our reservation, they were very accommodating. Excellent service. Good pacing of the dishes we shared. Did a few items from each menu row. All were great. Chickpeas and the broccoli. Tuna. Oysters. Goat. Desserts. A must visit.
Girl & the Goat is a consistently great experience- great food, great and friendly service and pleasant ambiance - would recommend visiting!
The food is really just amazing. The bread, the whipped feta cheese, crispy short ribs. delicious. love.
Top notch service, every dish is thoughtful and deliberate, staff has great suggestions- complex cocktails, affordable small plates for sharing- an absolute standout, one of my favorite restaurants in the nation.
Food was great. Noise level intolerable. No one wants to shout their entire meal, and even then you couldn’t hear yourself think much less converse. Despite the good food, I would not return.
