Great time. Server was apathetic and seemed a bit put out that he had to wait on us. Still love the restaurant though.

Not as great as expected. The blueberry pancakes were excellent. My son wasn’t impressed with the patty melt but I took a bite and thought it was good. The Sloppy Goat was tasty but a little too spicy. I couldn’t really taste the meat because the sauce overpowered. My friend had the French dip type sandwich and thought it was just okay. None of us liked the friend pickle and onions.

It was good, but as my first time eating there, I thought the food would be a casual version (or even bar style version) of the excellent food served at Girl and The Goat). It was more inline with the theme of the restaurant... Diner food. I was good and I would return but with a clearer understanding.

My daughter and I had dinner at the restaurant. Our crab dip appetizer and meals (sloppy goat and chicken pot pie) was delicious. Stephanie Izard was so nice when I asked to take a photo with her. I’m a big fan and have seen her on Food Network.

The food was amazing! You would have to go back 10 times to have a chance to try everything you want to eat on the menu! It is a nice walk from the Theatre and would go again when in the area. They were informative with food allergies also.

Our kids had all been here, as well as several grandchildren. They've been raving about it for several years, and suggesting we try it. So we did, and the kids we're right! We looking forward to a return visit to try more items on the intriguing menu.

I love Little Goat. I have only ever had great experiences with food and service here. For this visit I went with a girlfriend for a weeknight dinner. We split the nachos (the best I've ever had), crumpets (out of this world), and tempura mashed-potatoes. Everything was so delicious and we still had plenty for leftovers. Can't wait to come back!

We were super excited to have dinner here before the theatre. I really wanted to love this restaurant, but the service was just okay. Our server left us with another server without letting us know or introducing our new server (who was really impersonal and lacked genuine care for us). Three out of five of us didn't enjoy the entree, which went unnoticed even though it was obvious that they weren't eating. Of all the meals we had in Chicago during our 6 days there this was the most disappointing.

Little Goat was fantastic, as always, and we really enjoyed brunch while dinning alfresco on a quite Sunday morning. The options were creative and very flavorful. We had to get the huge cinnamon bun and some scones to go with our breakfast coffee. The blueberry pancakes were perfectly fluffy and the French toast was savory/sweet. A side of very tasty thick bacon completed the meal. The wait staff was accommodating to our two small children and made them feel welcome by offering up some stickers. Overall a great place for brunch and a wonderful experience, which is why we have kept coming back since 2012.

We would definitely go back to the Little Goat. We ordered the following:

crab dip for starters - excellent
Bulls eye - french toast & fried chicken- very good if you like sweet & savory combined
Los Drowned - their version of a french dip - very good - although the meat was a little fatty
hashbrowns - a definite repeat
broccoli - very good - spicy.
pretzel shake to go - even to go it's worth the calories and worth ordering.

We will definitely return next time we're in town to try something new.

Food is solid, although I'm not sure it's worthy of the amount of hype/popularity this place has. Good drinks. Food menu is a bit scattered. While it's all supposed to be "diner" style food, it doesnt otherwise have much a coherent/cohesive theme. Huge protions - you wont leave hungry.

Service was poor... I know it's a diner but I don't expect the plates to be slammed down unceremoniously by the runner not to see the waitress, oh, never. They were out of pork belly that night so menu was more limited.

The food is very tasty. We couldn’t fully enjoy our meal, because 20min after we were seated we had a thief steal a member of our dinner party’s purse (a young women on her first trip to Chicago). My son immediately used an app to find the purse that was ditched into a trash can 5 blocks away. The lowlife who stole it already charged $2,000! Manager was very helpful and found the footage on the security cameras. Our original server though sort of avoided our table after the incident. Not a pleasant time. More attention needs to be shown on people walking into the restaurant and just walking around the tables that are not actual patrons.

We were a little bit disappointed that we could not sit upstairs. The reason for choosing this restaurant was because the offered rooftop dining. It was a very sunny day and the restaurant was not crowded. The host said that the upstairs was only for parties.

Overall, the food was tasty. My son enjoyed his nachos. It was served with pork and other ingredients. You could tell that the chips were homemade. The burgers were delicious. The buns were large.

Food was absolutely delicious and server was great! It was just really warm in the restaurant, I don't think the air was on which made the dining experience a little unpleasant (it was also an extremely hot day out). To be honest though the food is so delicious and the environment is super fun, so I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place and I would never hesitate to eat here.
