Our Mother's Day brunch at Girl and the Goat in Chicago was an absolute delight! Sharing this experience with my mom on her first trip to Chicago made it even more special. Our server, Kona, was not only personable but also a true foodie who...enhanced our dining experience with her enthusiasm and recommendations. The prix fixe meal was a culinary journey, each dish a masterpiece of flavor and presentation. From the refreshing yogurt & granola to the indulgent crabby French toast, every bite was a taste sensation. Special thanks to the talented chefs and the attentive staff at Girl and the Goat for making our Mother's Day celebration truly memorable! 🍽️✨More

We shared a number of plates and everything was good. The flavor combos were nice, and our favorites were the chick peas and beets.

This place is fantastic! The food is expertly crafted with complex and delicious flavors. The poke, in particular, is a standout—it's one of my absolute favorites! The atmosphere is cozy, and they offer a great selection of cocktails and non-alcoholic options. I'm already looking forward...to my next visit so I can try more items from their menu!More

This was a perfect meal for the last night of a trip to Chicago! I booked a table to celebrate a family member’s birthday. They gave us a table that looked directly into the kitchen (kind of like a chef’s table). Chris, our server, was...exceptional and made such amazing recommendations (we had wonderful cocktails, the shrimp salad, goat empenadas, green beans, pig face). Lastly, we had passion fruit sorbet and the praline sundae. Also, we had the pleasure of meeting Tito, a kind and personable chef who—along with the other kitchen staff—worked to make our meal amazing. A perfect meal!! Highly recommend!!!More

Each sharable dish (3) was deliciously amazing. Restaurant was dark, difficult to read menu. Tables very close together. No clean plates for each dish, was disappointing.

What an excellent meal. Each dish was by far greater than the sum of its parts! Perhaps it was the low expectations of the descriptions (e.g. olive foccacia with whipped ricotta), but each dish just wowed my palate. Also, the cocktails were top-notch. We tried...the For Your Health and the Bring the Beet Back and both were absolutely delicious. Even the zero-proof cocktail Spicy Boy wowed! The service was spot on - friendly, not fussy. I loved the casual atmosphere to eat such high quality food. Can't wait to come back!More

Made a reservation with high expectations for a 50th birthday dinner. We had been wanting to try this restaurant for several years and finally had the opportunity to. Long story short, we regret working our weekend around what we thought would be a 'nice birthday...dinner'. Unfortunately, the space was super loud, staff was robotic, food was only mediocre, and we felt rushed through our 8pm reservation so they could use the table again. AND...speaking of the table... it is ridiculously long/wide for 2 people. So much so that my wife and I could barely converse across it during what we hoped would be a lovely birthday dinner. We don't mind a loud, bustling, crowded, city restaurant -- we truly enjoy them and actually happened upon a Peruvian gem the night before that was just amazing -- but this was too loud and everything, including the food, was just not up to par. To add insult to injury, we spent 250+ dollars on dinner and wine and when it came to dessert they charged us $15 for the birthday sweet that my wife picked because she was told to 'save room for a birthday dessert' by the server. Just generally very disappointed with the atmosphere, service, and food. We won't be returning and don't recommend. There are so many other amazing restaurants with better service and atmosphere in the city, this once has lost its luster.More

We wanted to love this dining experience with our family, but it fell way short of being in any way enjoyable - we were relieved to finish our food so that we could leave. For a restaurant of this caliber, one would expect superb food...and a pleasant dining atmosphere. The ambience was raucous and deafening; it was impossible to converse at the table. The tables were packed in so tightly that we were constantly being bumped and jolted by the people seated at the tables behind us. The service was good, but the food was only so-so. (We had eaten here a year ago during the summer, seated in their outdoor dining area, and the food was much better at that visit.) The naan bread with hummus and tzatziki was delicious, as were the roasted beets. The chicken skewers were boring, the green beans were, well, green beans, nothing spectacular there, the crispy pork belly was a sloppy mess of indeterminate flavors, the goat liver mousse was marginally ok, though the crumpets with it were rancid. We won’t be back. It was a wretched dining experience.More

The Girl & the Goat restaurant Chicago, rests on the renowned Restaurant Row area in the West Loop of the Windy City. Rustic wooden pillars and beams connect a bevy of seating areas creating an enduring communal and 'tete a tete' appeal. The menu is...protein bound, heavy on goat. After hoofing over the menu, my mind argued over the crispy pork belly and the roasted pig face.........the belly survived along with chocolate olive oil cake all washed down with prosecco............a delicious meal and great company............a superb goat restaurant.More

This place has been on my bucket list forever and it did not disappoint! I’ve been following Stephanie’s career since her season of Top Chef and it was so exciting to finally make it here! The food was incredible- such unique flavors and spices. The...hamachi crudo, chicken skewers and green beans were my top three favorites. The desserts were also Devine. I wish I remembered the name of our server because he was excellent and made the entire experience so much better! I can’t recommend this place enough!More

The cuisine was generally speaking mediocre particularly for an establishment of this note, combined with truly lackluster servicing to say the least. In complete fairness and tribute to the chef though, we sampled the "goat liver mousse" and it was truly exceptionally brilliant in preparation....Unfortunately, the other dishes ordered were not of an above average caliber.More

Anthony Bourdain The Layover Season 2, Chicago featured Girl & The Goat, and it looked freaking delicious! So I had to try it. Even 12 years after airing this episode, this place is still popular and packed on the Friday night we dined here...be sure...to make a reservation! This is a fancy upscale restaurant, but is family/tapas style, so mentally prepare yourself with that important piece of information. Service is impeccable, the hostesses were friendly, the busboy was on his A game with water glass refills, and out waitress knowledgeable and friendly. Every dish is creative, exquisite, and delicious. Shockingly, the vegetarian plates were amazing and flavorful. $17 Roasted Beets...tropea onion-golden beet giardinaire . yuzu kosho . party nuts. I'm not a fan of beets, but these beets were the best I've ever had, and honestly delicious, and probably healthy too! $18 Sautéed green beans...fish sauce vinaigrette, roasted cashews...sounds weird, but again these were fantistic, and the most spectacular green beans ever. $24 roasted pig face...seared, juicy, crisp pieces of pork, served with a sunny side egg, and some very thing crispy french fries. Sooo good! $21 Goat empanadas...avocado crema, chili lime crunch, fried plantains...very tasty! Note that there are only two empanadas. My dining mates tried some other plates, all of which were fantastic too. Problem is all these plates are on the smaller side, and we had run up a $200 bill between the 4 of us. We weren't quite full, but didn't feel compelled to raise the bill any further. Bigger portions would've made the this a 5 Star. Or maybe complimentary bread and butter. Or maybe I'm being cheap and petty tourist. Or maybe I need to go on a diet...yeah, that's probably the right answer.More
