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.

It was really good, it was actually special and not just another fancy dinner.

It's an expensive experience though, cost the most of any dinner I've ever done, and by as very wide margin.

Fantastic start to finish. Great service. Halibut was the best I’ve ever had. Pork shank was phenomenal. Dessert was far better than we’d expected. Empanadas were really good, but the pork face wasn’t as great as the hype would suggest. Cocktails were all amazing. Will definitely come back and sample se more things, but would be compelled to get the halibut and pork shank again.

Granted, we had a late seating, but one of our courses was missed and we lost 20 minutes getting it - then dessert took a long time to arrive - we were rushed through dessert. The chairs were practically pulled out from under us as we were trying to pay the check and leave a tip.
Food was good, but colored greatly by the experience, I’m afraid.

One of the best restaurants in Chicago. Everything was superb. Blueberry cornbread is a must. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the dessert. We had the berry tart, and it was literally way too tart. I mean there was no sweetness to the dessert at all. That was a let down to an otherwise incredible meal. But we’ll definitely be back to try the other items on the menu. Ambiance wise , music is a bit loud but I loved the decor, everything is so beautiful. Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

- Asks for full party to be here before checking in - why? Everybody would happily get a drink waiting
- Extremely loud
- Service ok
- Food just decent, nothing to write home about
- Poor value (total $100 / person without drinks)

We sat outside and it was really nice and felt safe.
Food was delicious! Coktails were good.
Service was less than expected, from a place like this. We were 4 people in a very small table, and food is served family style, at one point it became very crowded on the table and we had an oopsie spill, no one came to check on us or attempt to replace the spilled wine, which was surprising not in a good way. We also had to ask for water a couple of times. Other than that. The food was great and we will likely return

Food was a little hit or miss. The pork face was probably one of the best dishes we have ever had. The broccoli was good. Goat mousse had almost too much flavor to a point we could not finish it. Overall it was pretty pricey.

Girl & the Goat is a must-have every time I visit Chicago. The duck tongues have such incredible flavors and textures combining uniquely together to become such a staple. The sticky glazed pork shank is also delicious, along with several others. I also recommend the shrimp salad and sourdough with its dips. Portions are on the smaller side but so worth it IMO. Do yourself a favor and book this restaurant.

Service was impeccable and the food was amazing. We ordered the salmon poke, short ribs, pig face and pork shank. We paired each entree with the mini green beans, shishito peppers and broccoli. Our favorite by far was the pork shank and pig face.

This was a unique experience with great food! Since it was more of a tapas style set up it allowed my group to be able to taste many different menu items in one setting. The staff was very quick to take away any plates that were empty and to provide clean plates throughout dinner.
