    When we arrived at the restaurant they turned us away at the door because they had a private event. The host said she called to let us know but I have no record of the call and no voicemail. Super disappointed as they didn’t apologize. I will never go to this restaurant again. Terrible experience!

    The G.O.A.T has become my favorite dinner spot in Jacksonville Beach. The service is on point, the employees are friendly and informed, and the food is exceptional. Yes, it may seem that the cost of each plate is a little high, but I believe that the G.O.A.T uses the best ingredients, and my meal is prepared to be the best it can be. With that being said, this restaurant does it for me. If you give it a go, I encourage you to go with no expectations and be present at dinner. The service and the way the G.O.A.T takes care of their restaurant will leave you will a smile.

    My friend and I were seated quickly by a server & provided with water and menus. That’s the last and only time we were served until we finally walked out 30 minutes later.

    I tried the Goat for the first time yesterday. Let's start with why you're here- the food was good, but over priced, in my opinion, and a little hit or miss. The short rib was probably my favorite but at $32 for that small plate I would hardly say it was worth it. The seasoning on the tuna tataki was a big miss for me and the black rice left much to be desired from a flavor standpoint. The empanada was delicious. Now for why I probably won't go back. First, let me say, the staff is amazing. They are very helpful, attentive, and friendly. The only thing I wish they had done differently was stop a man, who was sitting at the bar, from harassing my friend and me, who were sitting at a table. The man was definitely inebriated and couldn't wrap his head around the concept of a parking garage (note: this is actually very convenient since parking can be a nightmare here). His comments got aggressively ruder towards us, to the point of insulting us, when we did not engage in this forced conversation. And he was shouting because it was very, very loud inside. I want to note this because it was not particularly busy but it was *very* loud. Not a great spot for catching up with a friend. While I understand that this customer was not representative of the restaurant in any way, I can also appreciate that I should not have to defend myself against an over served patron while paying $32 for a small plate. My experience would have been much more enjoyable had they cut him off, asked him to leave, or, at a minimum, asked him to stop yelling at other customers. All things I don't think are beyond reasonable requests. Overall, not a great dining experience.

    Friends in from out of town. Wife and I got there ahead of reservation. Sean poured our drinks. I had the old fashioned and wife had the Pinot. Old fashioned was outstanding. Friends arrived and were seated at table. Everything we chose was delicious. Even the octopus. Quail was top notch. Dining room could use acoustic panels. It’s loud as all get out in here. Looking forward to our next outing!

    This was our first visit and we weren’t quite sure what to expect. It turns out we had a wonderful time. The portions are very large, closer to entrée size and easily shareable with at least 3 to 4 people. Everything was well prepared and very tasty.Lots of things to choose from and an excellent wine list. Surface was excellent.Note that it’s on the expensive side So be prepared.

    The Goat is a much-needed addition to Jacksonville restaurants: Spanish-style tapas with multiple choices of vegetable, meat, and seafood plates. We had greens, brussels, quail, and an Iberico pork special. The food diversity, taste, and presentation are the shining elements of The Goat, and make this restaurant worth repeat visits.

    The service was slow and rude. One out of four plates were sent back as poor quality. Food prep was slow considering there were only a few guests. Overpriced for what you received. This was our third but last visit, the overall experience noticeably declined in satisfaction.

    Food was amazing but way too pricey. There are better options in town where the food is as high quality with better pricing. The spare rib was delicious but $32 for a single spare rib is a little outrageous.
