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 as well as Sunday prix-fixe brunch, and have both patio and limited indoor table seating. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.

Amazing as always. Even in the midst of covid, the service and food were great and I felt comfortable eating inside because the tables were spaced out properly.

Made a reservation for my fiancé and I here at our favorite restaurant in the city. We have a fantastic experience every time we come. Food is seriously delicious and service is awesome. A little on the pricey side, yes, but worth it in our opinion. We ate outside because of Covid and while the dining experience is different than indoors, it was still a great dinner. The restaurant staff do a great job of ensuring a safe and enjoyable meal for all patrons—tables distanced from each other, ask that you put your mask on anytime a staff member approaches the table, etc.

I think I had too high of expectations. It was just ok. Service wasn’t great—took him too long to get back to us to place our food order and we were STARVING. My cocktail was good (banana rum drink?) and so was the dessert (white chocolate mousse) but I’d say everything else was just ok. Skip the Shishito Peppers—I promise you can make them better at home. The Chickpea Fritters were good consistency wise but overall bland. Salmon Poke was delightful but very small for sharing. Finished with the Pork Shank and sadly the best part about that dish was the naan bread. I think overall the menu was a swing and a miss.

Had Etta last week and it was fantastic. Go there instead.

I'm very happy to be re-introduced to Girl and Goat. It has been years since I visited and after a re-introduction a couple of weeks ago, I've found my way back. Should anyone be interested in the must-haves, please allow me to share.

-green beans (do not skip this unless you have a nut allergy, then you must stay far away)
-elote
-shrimp salad
-black bass

They were great as always. I was particularly impressed with the way they handled us with the covid restrictions and still managed to take care of us with 2 smaller children at the table. Our server (don't remember her name) was fantastic! Love these guys

The food is fantastic as is the service. It was a very chilly evening to sit on the patio, but there were some heaters outside which held off the chill, but I believe they need to add more heaters as the evenings will only be getting colder. This is a classic restaurant in Chicago and should be tried by everyone at least once!

The Girl and the Goat is definitely a restaurant I will visit again. It has a wonderful space for outdoor seating and I great for a date night. The food is tasty although limited in options. It is more for sharing and would be good for groups.

The food was great. We dined in the patio since the indoor area is still closed, which was ok. Also we were instructed to put our masks back on while being served, which was a little confusing, but it is understandable given the situation.

haven't been to the girl and goat in years coz it was impossible to get a res. with covid, it's possible and man, was the food fantastic. every dish was excellent, balanced, a little heat, a little crunch, a little salt and so flavorful. The one benefit of covid - getting to eat at the girl and the goat again.
