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!

    Very nice ambiance and feel. Food was good and interesting and shareable. Only criticism was the wait to be seated. Had a reservation at 9pm. Showed up at around 8:50pm. As expected, was told to wait until the 9pm time. Other people were checking in and being seated from 9pm-9:25pm, while we were still waiting. It seems like they may have forgotten us since the moment we brought it up at 9:25pm, it only took them about 30 seconds to find us table.

    One of the best dining experiences we've had in recent memory. Food was exceptional - taste and presentation. Service was incredible - every single person from the restaurant that we interacted with - even in passing through the restaurant - was kind, considerate, and relaxed. Our server knew the menu thoroughly and was able to advise us. She also checked up on us just the right amount. There were enough people circulating to bus the tables when needed, and even wipe the table before desert. Vegan options just as tasty as the meat ones. Can't recommend it enough.

    From the bartender to the server, it was a great experience that had the chance to be overrated due to multiple great recommendations from friends. Bartender checked ID and noticed it was my birthday as well so that made my night. We will definitely be coming back for more

    Amazing vibe! This is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Everything is so tasty and unique, and the restaurant is cute but not stuffy. The service in general is excellent but the last time we were there the service was a bit slow so that’s why I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5. Overall, this is an amazing spot for every occasion!

    Amazing food and great atmosphere! Definitely one of my new favorite restaurants! Girl and the Goat has the cutest vibe and the food comes out looking and tasting delicious! We tried the naan appetizer, chickpea fritters, branzino, pork shank and then the pumpkin cake dessert and everything was perfect and delicious! Definitely recommend coming here!

    The food was lackluster with some dishes being too overpowering and other dishes not having enough flavoring. Weird mesh of cultural flavors it felt like the restaurant did not have a strong sense of who it was. Would not go again.

    Here for brunch. Food just not up to the very high level of dinner. Very odd corn beef hash, cold omelette, rubbery pancakes. etc. Told host it was one of our party’s birthdays, and mentioned it to our server. No dessert with candle as requested. Heck, iHop does this at 1/4 the price.

    This is a favorite place of mine. The food is so good and flavorful, cooked perfectly every time. It’s adorable inside and outside, have had only great service and good times at this spot. The brunch cinnamon roll is incredible as well as the potato crepe!!! A top spot for Los Angeles for sure, with great prices.

    Good food and atmosphere. But missed few points: 1) 8:30pm reservation but was seated at 9pm. But we get it, its busier than expected and it happens. 2) Bartendars were taking away drinks from the bar and servers were removing food from the table when we weren't even finished. 3) Wrote on the reservation that it was my wife's birthday. The restaurant did nothing to make her feel special when another party had the restaurant singing songs and offering dessert for their birthday celebration. Not that restaurant owes us anything extra, but it definitely would have made her feel a little more special. Overall good place for small plate sharable experience but don't expect a good service.

    The food was seasonal, fresh and delicious. Based on a friend's recommendation we booked a table for a birthday celebration. Both the server and the staff that brought the food knew the menu and were attentive to detail. I enjoyed everything we had. Portions were good and we went home with some leftovers. Will definately visit again.

    Such a delightful place! We didn't really know what to expect and were totally blown away. The food is incredible - so many unique flavors. Like little explosions in your mouth. The drinks were delectable. The service was awesome - everyone works together as a team so you're not having to flag down your specific server if you need something. You have a main server, but there are so many people that can walk around and support, add an order, etc. The ambience is very cool - loved the decor and vibe. We will definitely be back!

    Service was excellent. Food was tasty, if a bit spicy (for my taste). Portions were a bit small to be shared by three, let alone more). Music was loud. Space was nice.
