    The food is delicious, but portion sizes small. We needed to order many many dishes for our group, making it quite expensive. We’ve been to many tapas restaurants & love them. This is the most expensive. Maybe prices have gone up , but we recently went to a lovely tapas restaurant in Charlottesville, Va, amazing, and the difference in portion/price is big. Too expensive!

    The tapas were difficult to share. They felt more like individual small plates versus something you can share with the whole table.

    Made reservations for Friday at 7pm. Bar was packed and there were 3 tables in the resturant. Entire left side was dark and empty. The bar crowd “party” was so loud u could not even enjoy ur own conversation. We asked to move to the other side of the restaurant and we were told the party was leaving shortly so it wouldn’t be much longer. So we left. There was almost now one in the dining area so to move our table would have been extreme easy. For a Friday night with business that slow I’m not sure they will be open much longer. Especially when they r unwilling to accommodate guests.

    I have to say, we were a little disappointed in the G.O.A.T. This was our first visit and the food was just okay. We had the sweet potato gnocchi, which has amazing flavors, but the duck was very overcooked. We also got the field greens salad that barely has any butternut squash in it and was overly dressed. For the portion size, it did not feel like the price made much sense. Our server, Leah, was fantastic and the decor and ambience was nice.

    These tapas are not the tiny plates you see in Spain, some are big enough for a meal! There were 6 adults in our party, we each ordered 2 tapas and after sharing most of them we were all stuffed, definitely enough food. Plus every dish was amazing, lots of oos and awes throughout the dinner from everyone! It was a great find for our visit to the area. Highly recommend!

    If you're looking for a fantastic dining experience, look no further than The Goat 🐐 . From start to finish, my meal at this restaurant was truly outstanding. First of all, the atmosphere of the restaurant was fantastic. The decor was stylish and modern, with just the right amount of warmth and coziness. The lighting was soft and flattering, and the music playing in the background was just the right volume - not too loud, not too quiet. But of course, the real star of the show was the food. Every dish that I tried was absolutely delicious, and it was clear that a lot of care and attention had gone into preparing each one. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful, and the presentation was beautiful. One standout dish for me was the Pork Cheeks, which was absolutely to die for. The pork was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the accompanying grits complemented it perfectly. It was truly one of the best things I've ever eaten. But really, every dish that I tried was a winner. From the Whipped chickpeas to the cocktails I was blown away by the quality of the food. And the service was equally impressive - our server was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. All in all, I can't recommend the 🐐 Goat highly enough. If you're looking for an amazing meal in a beautiful setting, this is the place to go.

    We had a reservation and arrived to find that they were closing the restaurant side of the restaurant. After double checking, they seated us in the restaurant. Our server, Amanda, was very gracious. She was perfect! She gave great recommendations and checked in on us frequently. The food came to our table quickly! Even though the food is served tapas style, the portion sizes were more than enough for 2 people. Every dish we had was delicious. The cocktails were also spot on. We were so happy we got to try this place out while we were in town!
