Girl & the Goat
Located at 809 W Randolph, Girl & the Goat was one of the first establishments in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor. We offer a variety of seating choices, including a comfortable lounge, bar seats, standard table seating, and four seats close enough to the kitchen line that you might be asked to help. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.

Beyond pleased with the food and service... the unique flavor combinations are unmatched!!! Highly recommend this dining experience... goat empanadas!!! Enough said...
The server was amazing and really helped us understand the menu! He had amazing recommendations - we were not disappointed in anything that he helped us order! The service was the best I’ve experienced in a long time and not to mention the food was outstanding!! Highly highly recommend!!
Server at first was quite cold, but warmed up eventually :)
Everything I had was outstanding, from drinks to desert !!!
Will be back next time im in Chicago :)
Amazing everything. Staff food atmosphere could not be better. Great experience!
So incredibly good. Unique dishes but not with things so far out there I didn't know what I was eating. I can't wait to go back. I will plan a trip to Chicago around when I can go to Girl & the Goat!
Everything I had was amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
AMAZINGGGGG EVERYTHING 10/10 holy moly I can’t even believe how deliciously amazing that was
Great food and service! Will definitely be back
Great creative food made to share. Good cocktails as well. Highly recommended for all foodies!
Every bite was delicious and our waitress went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary was special. Loved it!
The meal was very delicious and server was nice and helpful.
We enjoyed dining at Girl and the Goat. Everything is served family style which made it really easy to taste many things. Fun and delicious!
Exciting,unusual and delicious food choices. What a wonderful experience!
Best dinner of my life!!
Phenomenal experience from the food to the service!
Great food and great drinks!
Food is good - not that great. The duck was really good. Goat was good too, but too unconventional and the flavors didn’t work that well. Some dishes were good, none were exceptional. Kind of overhyped. There’s better food all along that block.
definitely good to check out if you haven’t been before. Went for a date night... I would go back again with some girlfriends and sit at the bar next time. A little noisy to have a discussion. The Pork shank and the green beans are awesome!
Great food. Great service. Will come back again soon
Drove into town a night early because we were able to get a reservation here and it did not disappoint!! Every dish we tried was phenomenal. The seating was a bit tight, and when our allotted reservation time was up staff began to hover, but for the people waiting, I appreciate that. Go for the food!! But don't go to linger beyond 2 hours ;)
We haven't had this much fun dining out in a very long time. Girl & the Goat is an utterly delightful restaurant, especially if one gets to sit at the "chef's table" which overlooks the long counter of prep/grills/etc. If you want to be able to watch all the prep and interact with the chefs, go early. If you want to watch an eye-popping and frenzied ballet as the chefs create your dinner, go later in the evening.
The waitpeople are personable, unhurried and offer excellent advice as they guide you through menu.
And now to the food. Inventive, unusual & most of all delicious. Of the 6 varied dishes [veggie, fish & meat] plus dessert, we particularly enjoyed the duck tongue and the goat liver paté. Not a single misstep.
Thank you Girl & the Goat!
Fantastic food, one of the best restaurants I’ve ever had
Scrumptious as always!
delicious foods, recommendations, and ambience. highly recommend it. short ribs were the best!
Innovative and flavorful food that is beautifully presented. Service was excellent. We had the walleye tempura , chickpea fritters, goat empanada, and pierogis. All were prepared with different combinations of veggies, fruit and spices. Sourdough bread was fresh and tasty. The goat cheese cheesecake with blood orange sorbet was exquisite and light. One of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. Can’t wait to return on my next trip to Chicago!
Fantastic food!!! So good. Everyone’s needs to come here.
Excellent service, knowledgable waiter and great ambiance. Go hungry because you need to try a variety of dishes. Their vegetable dishes are super satisfying.
We had a 5:30P reservation on Tuesday night and were lucky enough to get seated at one of the Chef’s Table. We had the opportunity to watch Chef Izard expedite orders and the chefs in the kitchen. The chefs interacted with us as their workload allowed. It was an awesome experience for foodies. We ordered the bacon Gouda bread, kohlrabi salad, branzino, crispy short rib, and goat belly confit. The bread was good, but unnecessary if you’re looking to save room and calories for other items on the menu. The kohlrabi salad was delicious! My non-veggie eating husband went back for seconds and thirds and named the dish his favorite of the meal. We highly recommend it. The Branzino was my favorite dish of the meal. The chef responsible for preparing the fish was stationed right in front of our table, so we got to see its preparation. Served whole, this dish may be intimidating to some, but the crispy skin, tender meat, and the crunchy farro paired with the sauce was the PERFECT bite. Another dish that we highly recommend. The crispy short ribs were perfectly crispy on outside and tender on the inside and were paired with grapefruit and avocado. The meal itself was delicious, but the dish itself wasn’t our favorite- too citrus forward for our liking. The goat belly confit was paired with crab and a vanilla sauce, and a composed bite of that dish made me drop my fork and close my eyes. It was PERFECTION!! Chef Izard ordered us a mini portion of the green beans on the house, and they were delicious! The beans were so perfectly charred and paired with sliced cashew and a garlic sesame sauce. Neither of us are huge fans of green beans, but this dish challenged our opinion. Again, highly recommend. To finish the meal, we ordered the Carmel corn & malt balls. Our server mentioned that it was one of their most popular desserts, and it was truly delicious. There was an unique contrast between the luxurious ice cream and the crunchy corn. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!
Second time here and still fantastic. The broccoli is amazing, don't miss it.
Celebrated my birthday here with a big group, and everyone had the best time! Service was great, food and drinks were amazing, everything went very smoothly! This place definitely lives up to the hype.
Awesome, incredible food
This is my third visit in seven years and the food is always top notch. We ate the Ora King Salmon Poke, Pig Face, Duck Tartare, Pork Shank, Escargot Ravioli, Apple Gjetost Pierogi and drank the Goat's Choice (Scotch, Beet Juice, Lime) and Don't Carrot All What You Think. We had the Gets Better with Sage and Fireside at the bar while waiting for the table; top notch drinks. The Ora King Salmon Poke was the most flavorful and impressive dish followed by the Duck and Pig Face. The Pork Shank was surprisingly over salted so we took it home to add some sugar for balance. We sat at a two seat, slim table behind a barrier to the people getting trashed at the bar. I understand the West Loop is getting more expensive with each Instagram-flex post and want to make use of each square footage, however, the restaurant should reconsider the layout of sitting a two person table near the super loud bar and kitchen area that will make any introverted foodie lose their enjoyment of food. Luckily, my significant other thoroughly enjoyed herself on her birthday even if the Girl and the Goat staff did not acknowledge her. Kudos to our bartender and servers for an enjoyable evening.
Overrated. Expensive. Service was mediocre. Interesting menu.
My daughters and her boyfriend.
Amazing food, excellent service! Our party of 3 shared 8 plates including desserts. Impossible to pick a favorite!
Absolutely incredible small plates. Couldn't believe how good the Duck Tartare was.
Great experience. I recommend to every one that lives in our visitors
We had a very gracious, efficient, and accommodating server. The food was amazing and very delicious, especially the duck tongue and duck tartare.
There were some dishes that were too salty (scallops, ribs, and broccoli) . Everything else was good.
