Everything that we had at Little Goat was delicious. The problem was everything came out just warm. Nothing was piping hot, steaming, even hot. On a cool, fall night in Chicago I want my sloppy joe (or los drowned Sammie) hot to warm me up. We also had the Smokey fries and cheese grits as sides. Finished the meal with the one twisted sundae, which was amazing though some more brownie would have been nice. I’d go back and here’s hoping they serve up hot food!

Nine family members, including 3 children, met for brunch to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We expected it to be loud and crowded on a Saturday morning, and it was. We waited over 15 minutes for our reserved table because another party continued to sit after finishing. When we finally got another table, the complimentary cinnamon rolls were appreciated, especially by the kids. The service was gracious although food didn’t all come out together. The verdict on the food was good,but not outstanding. I would agree with comments that this is a good place for a large group with varied tastes and for children, because the menu offers something for everyone. Otherwise, it’s a bit too hectic for my tastes.

One of the best restaurant in Chicago that you must try. The cinnamon bun was amazing considering I don't like them a lot but boy this one changed my mind. While for the main dish I had the "Girl went to China...something like that and it was mind blowing how good it was, not too spicy nor sweet or sour but just the perfect umami taste. Also, I'm not from Chicago.

Absolutely the best service... great timing (not too much attention, not too little), and super friendly staff. They have an awesome roof top for events, a diner with all the comfort food in huge portions, and a bakery/coffee shop for quick hangs. This is one my all time favorite spots.

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Little Goat! We had been at the Adler Planetarium with our college age niece, and wanted to have some dinner. One of my other nieces really loves this restaurant so we made the reservation. Our server was fun, knowledgeable, and unobtrusive. The food was fantastic! Such different combinations and flavors. I used our server's recommendation and got the Port Belly pancake, as did my niece and we loved it. My husband had the noodles with shrimp bowl, and he cleaned the bowl. For dessert we had the sweet potato ice cream with miso whipped cream - sounds weird right? It was to DIE FOR. Can't wait to come back again!! Parking is pretty easy, neighborhood is nice. Cozy, casual place. Loved it.

My husband and I went for brunch on a Sunday. Food was delicious (shrimp and grits, yum), service was great. If you are an IPA fan, try the Fox and the Goat collaboration beer made with 18th St Brewery. We will be going back!

Loved our lunch there. I'm a little annoyed, however. I called to see if I could add 2 more people to my party of 4 reservation. They said the next availability would be 3 hours later. When we got there we found out our booth could seat 6 (we had a party of 4 since they told us we couldn't add). One of the friends came anyway and we were able to add him without a problem, but I wish our other friend could have joined us because we had a terrific meal otherwise.

The coffee was solid and I loved the mugs where the goats appeared as I drank. The tempura mashed potato was great. The textures of crispy and smooth were perfect. The Piggy goes to China also delicious. The cheesy grits were okay, but paled compared to the other dishes. But what was really good was the beef. I can't remember what the name was (my friends ordered it) but when I took a bite I just cussed out loud it was so good. I'll upload the photo since I can't remember the name.

My favorite place to go for brunch! I really recommend getting their seasonal omelets or pancakes because they are always amazing and you can always try the normal menu some other time. The apple spice pancakes are to die for! Amazing location, though you’ll probably need a reservation because they’re always packed. Also recommend their hashbrowns, they are crispy and cheesy and touch your soul.

Family of four with two young kids - everyone had delicious options for a meal. My husband got the Goat Almighty sandwich (tower of meat that stands about 18” high!). He said the combination of everything (which you have to eat with a knife and fork) was amazing.
