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.

Please note: a 4% surcharge will be added to each guest check to ensure health and medical benefits for all of our valued full time team members.

Amazing! Stephanie Izard’s food is everything you’d hope it to be and more. So many layers of texture and flavors. You can’t go wrong with any item on the menu...or just go for it and order it all!

Cute restaurant. Must have sparkling rosé from Moderna, Italy. Delish! Brioche with house cream cheese & pickled veggies: yum! Chickpea fritters & shishito peppers: this was our meal. Hubby had Pilsner on tap: twice!! In a lovely neighborhood. Took a long walk after. Stopped at SugarGoat for couple homemade type cookies for mañana. And took train back. A very good evening

We had an issue with dietary restrictions (celiac) and miscommunication among the staff as to what could be eaten, to the point of a prepared dish arriving that contained gluten. Fortunately the manager realized the mistake, apologized and the rest of the staff did everything they could to make up for it. Another great experience and I highly recommend.

G&tag is one restaurant that has my loyalty every time I come to Chicago. I'm like on line at home the moment reservations open up for my travel dates. The menu changes a bit but everything I've ever ordered and eaten is delicious. We ordered 6 dishes and the kitchen paced it PERFECTLY. Thank you to all at the restaurant for another great meal out!

Literally Stephanie is amazing. Every dish we ordered was unique and flavorful and absolutely delicious. The chickpea fritter was a must try. The green beans are always flavorful and unique. Her mango sticky rice was next level with flavors. If there is one restaurant you must try in Chicago it’s Girl & the Goat. Everything is phenomenal.

The first two courses were great. But my guests and I didn’t like the chicken of all things! It was so smoky that it had that musky lingering taste of duck! We didn’t eat it. And their signature dish of “pig face”? No thanks. Greasy, very fatty, and barely anything on the plate.

One of my favorite spots in the city! The goat empanadas are amazing along with the pork shank. I love that it's small plates so you can share with everybody and get to try everything.

Really loved it. We went to celebrate an anniversary. Everyone from the hostess to the people serving congratulated us upon arrival and when we left. Our place at the bar was waiting when we arrived. Had a good bottle of wine from a limited but good selection and 7 dishes plus dessert (we ordered one and the kitchen comped one because of the anniversary.)

It was delicious in a sense of complex tastes but nothing pretentious or overly exotic. Everything was really good. 5 of the 7 dishes were truly special...pig face, salmon poke with strawberries, chickpea fritters, broccoli, and goat empanadas. The oysters and shishito peppers were good but I would try something in their place next time. The blueberry dessert was amazing. The mango sticky rice was a bit salty.

Some stand out elemwnts. There was a real satisfying textural element to the dishes in almost all the cases. We really enjoyed that. The strawberries with the salmon were a nice surprising pairing. And the smoked blueberries in a couple dishes were unexpectedly pleasant and a new taste.

All in all we would definitely come back to work through the things we did not try and then come back to eat the things we loved again and again.

Despite COVID guidelines, we felt very comfortable and had a great menu to choose from. We ordered a bunch of small plates and they were spaced out perfectly. The servers were conversational and made great suggestions. We received a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary which was a nice touch!

Unusual food combinations, delicious but 2 things bothered us about the ambiance:
First the music was terrible, (we are 46,52) so I don’t think we are old but the music was loud and club-like, not at all relaxing or enjoyable for a $100+ dinner.
Second, the lighting is so dark and the font on the menu so tiny that we couldn’t read it without turning on phone light (again we are not old and neither of us uses glasses)
Unfortunately, these things detracted from the experience but our server was great and we enjoyed the food
