Food and service was great! I ordered the xiao long bao (so juicy) and Dan Dan noodles (tasty but oily).

Very good food and drinks, server was not great... We felt rushed and unwelcome. As they say, diners come for the food and return for the service - don't know that we'll return because we didn't feel welcome

Inventive menu but food was on the heavy side. I guess it is a diner, but still thing felt a little more fried/oily than I was hoping for.

Got the Bull's Eye French Toast and it was absolutely incredible! Eggs were mixed in and it was topped with crispy chicken pieces and strawberries. I was a little skeptical but our server told me it was a crowd favorite. After one bite, I understood why. The texture of the french toast was a bit crisp on the exterior with a nearly flan-like interior. It was the first time I had french toast like that but it won't be the last. Do yourself a favor and try it.

Burnt bacon, higher prices, generally less attention to detail. Sadly, it is far from pre-pandemic—more expensive and not as good.

The waitress was not attentive, food came out before the decaf americano in our group, while the rest all had regular coffees already. This was the same waitress we had when we were here last time, but we blamed the poor service that time on it being the day Chicago opened up for indoor eating after the covid shutdown. Sad to say, we love the girl and the goat, but little goat is someplace we won’t be going again.

We very much enjoyed everything we ate at Little Goat! Every few bites my husband said, “This is so good.” We all tried interesting dishes for our breakfasts and they were exceptional. Our server was attentive as was all the staff. We really liked the photo booth when you enter. Even my hot tea was really good. We will definitely return.

Service was very attentive. The food was very interesting. I had the paratha which was very tasty, but probably had too much of the mayonnaise dressing on it. Cut that back and it would have been 5 star for me.

We had a lot of business to discuss and we were given the time and space to be able to do that

I started off and meeting friends for brunch and it turned into me dining solo with my service dog due to one of them losing their wallet the night before. I almost didn’t go but so glad that I did. The whole menu looked delicious to me but I decided I’m going with the breaded pork cutlet and the Asian slaw. It was delicious! But before that I got a jumbo vanilla latte to start and that hit the spot! Everyone was so sweet with my service dog, Bo, and nobody complained. I always worry as he will be in the way but everyone, customers included, couldn’t have been nicer.

After my server described the sweets I decided to get a cookie and a cupcake to go and unbeknownst to me he came back and said he was taking care of it. I think because of how my day was going with my friends losing their wallet and me dining solo he thought this would lift my spirits, and it did! I will definitely be returning with my friends in tow this time to try more of that delicious looking menu! Thank you Little Goat for making my Halloween really special. 🥰

My husband and I were in town for our mini-moon. A friend told us we HAD to check this place out, and we went for brunch. It was so good! From the restaurant itself to the food, to our server, it was amazing. Our server gave us recommendations for the best views in town, and he also gave us one of their signature cookies from the sugar goat bakery. I 100% recommend. I cannot wait to go back to Chi & visit little goat again!

The whole menu had changed from what was online. Didn’t love the French toast or bacon. The latte was good and the dipping sauce was too. But super disappointed in menu. We took a cab all the way out there and then nothing we had heard about was on the menu.

Very accommodating for children as well. My party had a 2yo and they had high chairs, coloring pages, and coloring materials on hand. Food is also very good, just expensive but it is downtown so it’s just the usual. Thank you!
