    Have been wanting to try the food at Girl & the Goat, and the flavors did not disappoint. We had the duck tartare as an appetizer, and it was delicious. We also had the roasted oysters - it was also tasty, but you only get two small oysters. So in terms of value, I’d say skip the oysters and maybe try something else more substantial. We tried the Goat curry, and it’s one of their more popular dishes for a reason. The Curry was creamy & flavorful without being spicy. The Goat was tender and not gamey. The masa chips remained crispy even when it was submerged in the curry. The portion size was also good, so it will fill you up. The confit Goat belly came out last, but I wish it was served before the curry, because the flavors are milder by comparison. After the boldness of the curry, this dish almost seemed bland. If you had to choose between the two Goat dishes on the menu, I’d say go for the curry. Everything was super delicious until we reached the desserts. We tried the passion fruit sorbet and the sesame cookies & cream ice cream. I found the sorbet too tart, and the sesame flavor on the ice cream too strong. I’d recommend skipping these and trying something else.

    If you like goat cheese this place will suit your palate. The dishes we ordered 8 ( there's 4 of us) in total excluding desserts had 7 with somewhat of a goat cheese flavor. I'm not a fan, so..... I would say they're unique though, quite different from the regular American fare.

    Did not live up to the hype. The carrot hummus was quite good. The chickpea fritters were raw. The popcorn dessert was disappointing.Hit and miss sort of deal. Does not warrant a return back.

    This is my second time there and if anything, this time was better than the first visit. Do not miss the sticky glazed pork shank. It may be the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. The nan & dips is also scrumptious. And even if the thought of pork liver mousse doesn't sound appealing, order it anyway - it comes with two additional spreads that are incredibly delicious (pickled persimmon and blueberry mostarda) and another item that is way up there on the lilst of my favorite things I have ever eaten: fresh crumpets. I mean - these things are DANGEROUS. Mmmmmmmmmm............crumpets.

    A true high end restaurant, every dish has a flash of brilliance, even the sourdough bread order came with a few things that made it exceptional (and it was "really" good bread by itself. This restaurant has restored my faith in dining out, and I will keep returning until I've had everything on the menu.

    Great inventive dishes and a lively fun atmosphere. Some portions are larger than others, so ask accordingly. May not be best for a kids, even though they have a kid's menu. Dessert: Popcorn Situation sounds intriguing, but leaves a cheesy after taste and after finishing it, it didn't sit well with all of us. Service was very good until the last moment when we got the check. His sudden change in attitude left me with a weird vibe.

    Went to Girl and the Goat for Sunday brunch. Everything we tried was delicious! We got the shrimp fried rice omelette, the pork belly chap chae, the little piggies and the crumpets and smoked salmon. Everything was cooked perfectly and had such intense flavor, my whole group was impressed. The cocktails, mock tails and coffee were delicious as well! The servers were very attentive without being overbearing, we felt well taken care of. Will definitely be returning to try out the dinner menu and will be recommending to all my friends!

    We dined for a birthday and had an out-of-this-world experience. We enjoyed five plates. The chickpea fritters, beet salad and branzino were delicious! Cocktails were slow moving but we just kept ordering our next round whenever drinks made it to the table (and they were worth the wait!). Very memorable meal and highly recommend for special occasions.

    An amazing combination of flavors in the globally inspired New American cuisine with a subtle Asian influence (we asked our server how to best describe this delicious and unusual menu and got that from her)! We ate family-style, as recommended, and were blown away by every dish we tried: Naan n Dips, Sauteed Green Beans, Roasted Beets with Yuzu Kosho Vinaigrette, Shrimp & gotham greens salad, Chick Pea Fritters, and Hamachi Crudo with the Popcorn Situation and Choc Mousse to finish! You won't be disappointed! Service was excellent and the drinks are delish too! Great place for a special occasion! We honored a very special graduate and it was perfect!!

    I had very high hopes as I have visited many restaurants that are headlined by an Iron Chef, so I was excited to see Girl and the Goat had a restaurant in LA. Also I love Goat and it is very hard to find in a restaurant. I ordered the Pork Belly salad which was okay although a bit on the weird side as to the sauce but not a deal killer. As a main course, I had the skirt steak, because although shown on the website, goat was not available on the menu. The skirt steak had a very intense wood smoke flavor that was off putting, and the sauce left a greasy coating on the tongue as if you had just taking a tablespoon of oil. The smoke and the oil was all one could taste. The menu items pricing was reasonable, but the taste was so bad. So Sad.
