Little Goat food was great! We got the Little Pig went back to China and the Onoyamaki pancakes and both were excellent choices. The coffee was a little bit too bitter, but overall really great!

Little Goat is the perfect brunch for a cold but sunny sunday afternoon!! Both of us were thrilled by the endless options and ended up splitting a few plates because we were not able to decide.

They said us quickly although they were busy and service came fast as well. We checked out sugar goat after and even nabbed a couple cupcakes to go. LOVE this spot.

Restaurant was not open! We arrived at our dining time and doors were locked. Highly disappointing that we were not notified during a busy holiday weekend so we could get reservations somewhere else. Sister restaurant was no help at all when we walked over to try Girl and the Goat.

Food was quite salty this time around. And taste was not as good as some of the items from before. Our server was excellent though. He was friendly and came by to check on us occasionally. We had an infant with us and he wiped down the infant high chair before letting us put him down. With covid, that was important for us.

Food is delicious, service was speedy and friendly and I would recommend. Keep in mind this is an energetic place and is a bit loud, so if you have hearing issues it is something to consider. It wasn't an issue for my party though.

Coffee and “hot” chocolate were both Luke warm. Ordered cinnamon roll with coffee and received it after coffee was empty (had to remind server that roll was not yet received.

Server was MIA after initial greeting

First time here. We tried the crab Rangoon omelette. The sweet and sour sauce overpowered everything. I could not taste any other part of the dish. The coffee was really bitter. The crab Rangoon dip was good and our waiter was really attentive. I will assume this is a one off and we will try this again another time. Maybe this time go for the regular dishes.

This was honestly the most outstanding service I have received in recent memory. Our waiter was so kind and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. He was able to describe dishes in more depth which helped us make our decisions. The food was fantastic and the will definitely be back next time I’m in the neighborhood for brunch.
