We had a meal at the much-lauded Girl & the Goat restaurant in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. Our experience as mostly vegetarians didn’t blow us away, though we certainly can see if we were omnivores that this place would probably have rated higher...More

Dined at the Girl & the Goat recently while visiting Chicago. I had read about this place here on TA. I reserved a table 3 months in advance, which was good because they book up very quickly. This restaurant is ranked in the Chicago top...More

Wonderful food and impressive service! I made a decision to try seared scallops and it was delectable. Regrettably, though, pork shank was typical. Had a wonderful time! I definitely will return here.

We had an 8:15 reservation on a Saturday night. Suffice it say, the place was pumping. This was our first time. Not sure what I was expecting, but this is not an 'intimate' restaurant - know that in advance. Instead, everything from the Smiths to...More

The Pig Face is one of the best things I've ever eaten. It's non-pretentious, confident and professional in every way. I absolutely love this restaurant. In terms of value as a function of food quality, it can't be beat. I can't recommend this place more...More

After a crazy travel day of delays, I searched the west loop area for a kitchen open after 10 pm on a Wednesday. I found this place and the heavy rains finally worked in my favor, leaving some open spots. My server Shikaya helped me...More

very interesting Kind of Food with high Quality and unusual but excellently prepared dishes. nice and friendly Service. The only Thing which disturbs the excellent Impression of that reataurant is an extremely high noise Level.

At first look, the menu can be a little intimidating with selections like wood oven roasted pig face, duck tartar and a side menu featuring everything goat. But each and every dish was fabulous! Dishes are served tapas style which I love, because everyone gets...More

best known as the location of Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo

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

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.

I do not think I would bring children to The Girl and the Goat. It is very dark and the bar is adjacent to the tables. The bar is knee deep with people and the conversation is loud. The atmosphere is geared to young... More

Sorry for the delay. It is pricey. Above a normal dinner for 2, but I think the food was above normal, so you get what you pay for. Again sorry for the delay. Didn't notice I had an open notification.

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.
