Chef Stephanie Izard and her team are thrilled to join LA’s vibrant restaurant community and continue our tradition of serving tasty, bold-flavored foods in a fun and lively family-style setting. A few favorites, like goat empanadas and sautéed green beans, will be back on the menu. Stephanie and her team have also crafted new dishes inspired by California produce and local flavors, like carrot-tahini dip with tahini tofu, and curried goat with radishes, pickled vegetables, and masa chips. 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 in the Arts District at 555 Mateo, Girl & the Goat offers dinner service Monday through Sunday, plus brunch Sunday. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads and adventurers!

    I brought my husband and son here for Father’s Day. I had eaten at the restaurant for a work event and could not wait to come back. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the service top notch, and the environment was perfect. We all enjoyed every course - from start to finish. We all highly recommend anyone who wants to eat very special food in a very special place to go to Girl and the Goat. You might see us there! We will definitely be back.

    Arrived for Sunday brunch. Seating was prompt, service was stellar, and the food was excellent. The Bloodymary was good but the non-alcoholic mango shrub was perfect. A great place to people-watch while sharing plates with friends. I can't wait to go back for dinner— an environment for both celebrations with friends or eating a nice meal alone.

    We really enjoyed the variety of food, different flavors, and unique combinations. We’ll go back to try the other dishes. It was my wife’s birthday and everyone was attentive in wishing her a happy birthday. The only suggestion is that the service was a little casual but that may be a personal preference.

    Had been wanting to go to G&TG for a while, and we were definitely not disappointed. Eclectic, modern Mediterranean style menu, with Asian and Indian influences. Every dish was delicious. Our wonderful and lovely server, Iris, helped make our meal memorable. Bus staff and wine staff were also attentive and well trained. A professionally run restaurant through and through. Look forward to returning again, soon.

    The ambiance was not what I expected, the light were too bright and it reminded me of a school cafeteria. The beignets were not good at all and drinks mediocre. Cute space but not managed correctly with lights, sound and decor.

    The dips + chickpea fritters were sooo good. Also, the salmon poke —- just tons of flavor. However both meat dishes — goat belly + the pork shank — had little to no flavor in the meat. Unfortunately the side condiments didn’t relate + made the unseasoned meat stand out even more. Some dishes were phenomenal but at $30+ per plate I feel like it all should be really good — not just a few of the plates. Pricey specialty cocktails had too much ice + were watery. We wouldn’t make the trek back but might dine here if in the neighborhood.

    I chose to eat here because I'd heard that they were excellent at handling food allergies. They are! And everything is delicious! I have several food allergies and I was eating with a vegetarian (obviously not their specialty). The server was very patient and helpful. He coordinated with the chef to mark up the menu and show us what we could eat. It's so rare that I'm comfortable eating in a restaurant for fear that I'll get really sick. I felt so comfortable here and had a great time.

    I took my best friend to Girl and the Goat LA for their birthday and it was an amazing experience! Cameron was the most amazing server and gave us the best advice when picking out drinks and food. The ambiance was great and would definitely come back! The inside is a bit loud, but on the patio it was perfect!

    Overall, great experience. Amazing food and great service when it started. I think towards the end of our meal (around 8ish) music got louder and changed from light/cafe like to rap/club music. It was a tad strange. Then, after ordering 7 plates and 3 cocktails, we were told that another party is waiting for our table for their reservations. I guess our finishing the dessert and seeing our drinks almost done gave the lady (who was dressed in a t-shirt with a black halter combo), who was also NOT our server, the opportunity to turn the table around. I think that situation was what made it a bit off a downer in the end. I would come back again. I’m just saying, it would be nice to end the meal having spent that much without the feeling of someone wanting you to leave. Hope that makes sense.
