The food was very good. However, our meals were too expensive for what we ordered. I ordered an omelet which was $16 and it did not even come with any side. For that price, I would at least expect toast with my meal which would have made the meal more filling. I would recommend the restaurant for the quality of the food but I would have to warn people of the prices.

We waited 15 minutes to be seated while multiple socially distanced tables sat empty, then waited 15 minutes for a server and so on and so on. Won't be returning.

Made a note on the reservation that it was a special occasion and requested a seat by the window but hostess didn’t even bother looking and put us in the worst spot in the restaurant. Place reeked of onion so our clothes smelled like food after 🤮

The food was delicious. I had a Bloody Mary that was seasoned a bit strong for me and I thought their coffee wasn’t that great. The food was yummy and I would go back.

Heard great good things about the goats. While the food was very good, the service good, the ambience was awful. Decor needs help.

This was our best meal in Chicago. We brought our kids ages 8 & 16 who also absolutely loved the food and particularly the dessert. We will definitely be back and plan to visit all of the other Goat restaurants.

unfortunately the fried chicken sandwich was served on a burnt bun. generous serving of fries were warm not hot. Korean tacos were unexpectedly bland.

Loved our time at the Little Goat. Our foursome sat in a cozy, very clean booth. Our server was fun, attentive and charming. The coffee was strong and delicious. Our breakfast items were delightful, unique and surprising. —Truly wonderful flavors that made for an exceptional, special brunch.

The best mac and cheese I’ve ever had! The biscuit was amazing too. Carl was our server and very pleasant. The chai latte was very spicy, too much so for me but my friend enjoyed it.

The cinnamon roll was stale and not ooey gooey. It was dry and a little hard. The french toast was ok. I kept tasting anise. Not sure if they even use that spice to make it. But it had a licorice taste. The chicken was great though. The mule was ok. Too sweet though and i was little sad it didn’t come in a copper cup. We love Girl and the Goat so we had high expectations.

This not so Little Piggy went to China whereas my Little Goat went to Tokyo. Loved the flavors in both dishes but Okonomiyaki barely had pork belly. Old Fashioned & Mimosa lacked punch. Purchased cupcakes & croissants from next door.

Hands down the best “eat here anytime of day” spot in Chicago. A people pleaser for guests or locals. Traditional or playful meals for any palette. We taken out of town family and friends here time after time. We’ve celebrated birthdays and accomplishment at Little Goat and it never disappoints.

One of our favorite restaurants in the West Loop. This was our first time back in over a year due to Covid. Was so impressed with their precautions and social distancing practices. Our server was very sweet and provided excellent service. We ordered the okonomiyaki which is one of my favorites. And tried the chicken sandwich and mac and cheese for the first time—both were delicious. Thank you for a great experience, always!

The food was pretty good, didn't love the menu changes they've made recently. The main issue was the way they have sectioned the restaurant off for covid. I felt safe but the bulk of the restaurant was blocked off by a large brown fabric curtain. That meant we were basically eating in a hallway to the bathrooms. They also reduced their cocktail menu which was disappointing.

I thought it was a nice spot, my only complaint was there was no valley when I arrived so I had to pay for parking because the street is so busy.

Friendly and clean. Helpful service and the food had exceeded our expectations for a mid morning meal. Our food came hot and prompt.
Driving in from the stateline area I thought it was a tad pricey.

The second you walk in to Little Goat Diner, you know you're about to eat excellent food.

You're immediately greeted by the spicy but sweet, exotic but comforting, crispy but smooth aromas that fill the entire restaurant — preparing you for the delicious meal ahead.

The host treats you with respect and excitement — as if to say, we know you're about to eat something fantastic we cannot wait — and this level of hospitality is consistent throughout the entire dining experience.

And of course they are correct. Everything on the menu that I have tried, and that is basically everything, is better than good. From their lattes, to their ale carte items, to their cocktails and main courses — every item on the menu is a delicious work of art.

I wish their was an affordable entree option, or at least entrees with sides included. But that is legit the only thing "wrong" with this restaurant. I love Little Goat and Stephanie!
