Food is delicious. Truly everything we tried was perfect. We decided to show an hour early for our reservation and they did their best to get us in ASAP. It only took about 15-20 minutes.

We arrived a little early for our reservation on Saturday, but were seated quickly. I noted that this was for a birthday celebration and was greeted with one of their cinnamon rolls -- which could be a meal in itself. When the requested drink was out of season, the waiter was able to provide an excellent alternative. Our meal came quickly and was delicious. The cauliflower and pimento cheese soup was amazing. The pork tenderloin was fabulous -- though the kimchi on top wasn't as spicy as I expected. Overall, an amazing experience.

Amazing menu and atmosphere for both adults and kids! The kids mac and cheese was the best I’ve had. We also had the pork belly noodle dish- it was an explosion of flavors! We’d definitely go back!

Food was great, staff were very helpful; they serve breakfast all day.

Try one of their Milkshakes, perfect with any meal and if that doesn’t work they serve beer, what more do you need.

We waited a little bit for our reservation, but they more than made up for it with an amazing chili cheese fries appetizer. We didn’t complain, they just offered it to us, this is truly the way you do business. Then our amazing waitress gave us another dish of blackened white fish taco that was a mistake order. This dish was simply amazing, it would not have been the first or second dish I would have ordered, but next time I’m absolutely getting this. The slaw and blackened whitefish was perfection. I ordered the beef stew special, this was truly comfort food after a long drive, but light and absolutely wonderful. My husband had the Los Dumas French dip. He ate every last bite. We had the sweet potato cake for dessert, truly amazing. If you go ask for Shane, she was absolutely spectacular. Everything she recommended was on par and fabulous. We will be back and I will ask for Shane.

What a fantastic experience. From the great service to the delectable meal, I couldn't be happier (unless I had an extra stomach). The server was not joking when he described the impressive serving size of the sides.

Delish, delish, delish. Breakfast all day - what more could a girl want? Seriously, the food is amazing. No surprise. Have been a few times and tried a number of dishes - all are great. Highly recommend. And also, the staff here is awesome -makes for a fun and delicious dining experience. Great vibe and energy.

Scallops had too much fish sauce...I experienced this before at Girl & the Goat. It was overpowering. We were hungry & tired & just ate it....but had to drink lots of water

I love that it is so kid friendly but also has interesting up-scale food for adults. We went for my birthday with two other families and the kids and grown ups loved the food. I will definitely be back.

The menu was unique and everything sounded delicious! My mother's reuben with kimchi was perfect. The noise level was a bit high, but that's to be expected on a busy Sunday service! Our server was attentive and the food came out timely and hot! Will go back.

wonderful evening. great service and menu choices. I would not offer this as a restaurant for intimate conversations...however, the food and service made it an overall five star evening. I've made two recommendations to little goat already!

We brought my in-laws and family friends here for dinner. We had one vegetarian, one vegan, and two people who keep kosher in our group, and everyone was very happy with the menu options and their meal. Little Goat certainly has options for adventurous eaters but they really have something for everyone. The atmosphere is lively and very casual. If you don't live in the West Loop, I strongly suggest you plan on transit or valet.

I had to ask hostess 3 times to seat us before the whole party, as we had very hungry toddler with us. There were plenty of tables, but for some reason it took them 30 min after our rsvp to seat us at the table which been empty since we came in. Our server did not show up 20 min after we got seated. For the money we spent, I would go elsewhere next time

Love, Love, Love the Little Goat. The food is delicious and it's an awesome affordable place to go. Crowd pleaser for all ages. The only thing I didn't like is their large booth seating is crazy small. They put 4 adults and 3 kids in the large booth with 4 of the people over 6 feet. We were squished in there and it was really uncomfortable. Just a note to the hostess to not put a large family in those booths.
