We enjoyed dinner last night at the community table. So hubby and I were seated at another table with two other couples. Worked out great since we all ended up doing family style! Decor and service are both excellent. Open kitchen and open dining room...More

Eclectic and interesting menu. All our dishes were delicious but the goat empanadas, Pig Face and caramel corn dessert were the best and all recommended by our very attentive and friendly server, Owen. This place is a must try.

The service was outstanding and the food choices were unique and delicious. My husband and I enjoyed four dishes and dessert. I want to go with more people next time so that I can try more of the menu selections.

Despite the (very) loud music filling the room, Girl and the Goat presents exceptional food, which isn't easy to compare preços match, great service and beautiful decoration. Definetly worth a couple of visits.

I'm going to start off by saying that this has been the best overall dining experience in Chicago thus far. This restaurant was highly recommended by a lot of my friends. I was not family with Chef Izard (from Top Chef) so I wasn't aware...More

All the food was delicious, including the pig face and the braised pork leg. It's easy to overlook the vegetables on the menu, but that would bea mistake. They were easily the tastiest part of the three meals I had there.

Still a very hot spot for Chicago diners, if not quite the destination spot it was when it first opened. The food is as complicated as the menu. It's all good. The servers are efficient and knowledgeable about all available items and how they're put...More

sub-neighborhoods within West Loop make this a unique
neighborhood to visit. Dotted with factories and

You'll see people of all kids of dress there. I'd say smart/business casual would suffice. I go with jeans and a sport coat there usually.

I do not recommend bringing children. There is no kids menu. There many better choices for kids in the city. I would suggest RJ Grunts or Heaven on Seven. If it's a weekday and lunch lookup Revival Food Hall.

Girl & the Goat has been serving fun foods, craft beers, and making wine in a rustic and kick-butt environment since summer 2010. The restaurant opens at 4:30 every day, and stays open until 11pm on weeknights and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays (until those last late night eaters scrape their fork across the plate for the last time, or finish licking their plates until they're shiny and clean). The Goat's menu is divided into three categories: Vegetable, Fish, and of course Meat--while vegetable, fish, or meat are respectively the main stars of their categories, there are crossovers in each area so you'll get a little bit of everything. Bread is baked daily, and there are always new creations on the menu. Girl & the Goat sits in the West Loop smack dab in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor, but the location is still gritty enough to appeal to the chef’s integrity. The Goat has a variety of seating choices, including a comfortable lounge, bar seats, standard table seating, and four seats close enough to the kitchen line that you might be asked to help.Girl & the Goat blended their own wine, and it's tasty. There are beers on tap from Three Floyd’s and a couple others. If you're lucky, you might come across the elusive collaboration beers that Stephanie personally crafted with a couple of beer buddy cohorts. In addition to tap beers, there's also a bunch of bottles to choose from. Girl & the Goat is open 7 days a week, because The Goat is a tireless beast, and besides, who needs rest anyway? Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.
