The floors are extremely slippery In this restaurant. I almost slipped but caught myself on my previous visit. I forgot all about that until I fell twice on my way to the bathroom today. The food is good, especially the breakfast and malt shakes, but as for safety, consider yourself warned.

Excellent and create menu, would certainly go back! Was a little disappointed our server only came by to take the order then apps and dinner brought by a runner so I was sitting with an empty iced tea for 10+ minutes twice.

Louder than Izards other restaurants more for the trendy family crowd as well as the other foodies and such that go to all of her places.

The food had great flavor to it, which worked well given the experimentation. I would have never thought of putting Sichuan pork sausage on a breakfast biscuit, but it worked!!

We had a party of 5 for a Saturday dinner at 6pm. We waited about 10 minutes for the table to open up, but it was worth the wait. We ordered the Machos Nachos which were unbelievably good. I've never had nachos that good and the rest of the party agreed. We all ordered burgers with either beef or goat and they were superb! You have to try the Smoked Fries, they are delicious! We will be back again for sure.

I have been here before years ago and the food was better. The patty melt I ordered was good but VERY greasy - as were the hash browns. The chinese broccoli dish was the standout.

2 out of 3 cocktails were not made correctly - they sent them back. Our waiter was friendly but not attentive.

Very noisy but that is kind of the vibe of the place and was to be expected - just letting other folks know.

Not what I expected from Stephanie Izard - it made us wonder a bit if she needs stronger people in charge of each spot? I think she is great and wish her much success - just not a great experience this time.

Celebrated a birthday here and was overall happy with our experience! The service was attentive and friendly despite the dinner rush. The only blip was that my card was charged with the wrong order, but it was resolved immediately and got voided in time. I will be coming back for the unique menu options and quality food sourcing!

Incredible food and service!! Looking forward to returning.

Do not. I repeat, do not miss the chance to have breakfast at Little Goat (or lunch or dinner). Look up the story of Stephanie Izard from Top Chef. I'm inspired by her restaurants, atmosphere and unique flavor creations (and I usually am not into unique flavor creations). But, this was an all-time top breakfast spot.

We had "This Little Piggy Goes to China" a Chinese-inspired sausage and egg sandwich on a homemade biscuit. And, "Everything is Everything Crumpets" - crumpets were the best pastry/bread item I've EVER had. Amazing!!! Tzaziki cream cheese and fried egg salad. Wow!!

Our server was incredibly nice and explained everything g to us; she cared!!

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.

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.
