Food is amazing but the service here always surprises me - hosts treat you like they’re doing you a favor and wait staff feels like they’re not available. Disappointing that the service doesn’t match the food/reputation of this restaurant.

We truly enjoyed our meal. All of the food was delicious. We had the "This Little Piggy Went to China," the Okonomiyaki, and hash browns. Areas that needed improvement: Neither my hot chocolate nor the hash browns were hot, and our waiter was way too slow. Yes, they were busy, but there was plenty of staff around. I believe the items were cold because of his slowness. Other than that, though, the food was tasty enough to make us want to return.

The food tasted ok, two dishes tasted like rancid cooking oil, it wasn’t eatable. We had them take it back, was very noticeable. Ruined the night out.

Wanted to like it- we had a reservation but it didn’t show in their system when we arrived. Glad I still had the email confirmation as proof, but we had to wait for a table. food was served cold - tasted okay - but nothing special

We have been coming to Little Giat since it opened and the food was always amazing. This last visit however the food was subpar. The Los Drowned was half fat, the Grill Cheese was dry, and the fries were hard and tasted old. We were surprised that o one asked how our meal was or commented that we didn’t eat half of our plates. Perhaps it was an off day, but I do not think we will be back soon.

Great place for a group - very accommodating! We went with 6 adults and 7 kids and they let us split up into two tables (kids and adults) so we ALL enjoyed the night! Great staff, great food and easy for a crowd as they have a lot of options - from simple burgers to more adventurous eating.

Experience was enjoyable especially because of the person I was with. Service didn’t miss a beat. The sloppy goat was the best sloppy joe o ever had. I didn’t care for the wedge salad - I like the more traditional version - but my friend did.

I love this place and always will. I go every time I’m in CHI.
It acts and feels like an upscale diner. I love goat meat and love how they craft all their menu and drink items together. It’s fun for date night, solo night and with friends.

Seated fairly promptly at our reservation time. Server was friendly and food was excellent! We had the crab dip appetizer (amazing) and my friend got a burger while I had the shrimp/pork belly entree - only issue was that a requested exclusion was missed in my dish. Everything was tasty and portions were reasonable.

Superb food, service and ambiance. My guest was flying in from out of town, got delayed, and as a result we were late. Even though the diner was very busy, they held the table for us. That’s how you get a repeat customer!

Food was great. Service was fair. I watched my food being taken to two other nearby tables before it was put back on the counter and the server was located. She didn't enter the table correctly. She did not apologize or even mention it. Just kinda weird vibe with the server more than other staff. But food is really interesting and yummy!

I love Little Goat, definitely one of my go-to’s whether it’s for a girls night or I have people in town! Great ambiance, quirky America food, and the fact that they serve breakfast all day is an added bonus.
