The tables are really close to each other,reservations need to be made well in advance and you need to shout to be heard. Despite this we had attentive service, friendly staff, and overall a warm atmosphere. Portions adequate,presentation attractive,taste original and prices not ovewrwhelming.

I highly recommend trying to get into the Girl & The Goat. I took a friend here for her birthday and everything was perfect. We had a reservation and started out meeting at the bar for a cocktail. Everything we ordered was delicious and the wine was great too. The staff was sooo helpful! I have also tried the restaurant... More

We'd been wanting to get into this restaurant for ages...hard to get reservations, but we were able to reserve 4 months in advance (a must, especially if you are traveling from out of town, as we were). Their menu is creative, hearty (especially welcome on a cold winter's night!) and varied. The Girl and the Goat serves small to moderate... More

I've been trying for three years to get a reservation at this restaurant. They finally suggested that we come down and wait for a table. We did. We waited two hours. When we checked in we were told we had a total of two hours to eat and then we were done. There were six of us. We were celebrating... More

Loved the entire dining experience, food amazing, service slick, unobtrusive but offering a causal friendly feel, would have loved to have eaten more but what we had was well executed - best beef short rib I have had in the US.

The food is creative, delicious and fun to share. Service is excellent. The place has a VERY lively bistro atmosphere--which should make diners considering a romantic table for two think twice. Definitely think about going there but go with a group so you can try the whole menu (which is divided in V, F, and M, respectively veg, fish and... More

This restaurant gets extra points for having an allergy menu. Not that it needs extra points; it's perfect. I ate at the bar and the service was tops. I tried so many different small dishes and they were all phenomenal. I loved the sautéed green beans, the mussels and the red fish! People at the bar were chatty and having... More

Some restaurants are harder to review than others. In the case of the Girl and the Goat, I must compare the overall gastronomic experience, with two disappointments: Portion size and overall service; however, to judge TGATG fairly, we also must take into account the dinning style of this restaurant, with the amount of people dining at the table. In our... More

Girl and the Goat is not to be missed. Absolutely outstanding in every way. The food is simply amazing. The menu takes things that you many not have considered and turns them into a work of art in both appearance and flavor. Taking something like duck tongues and making them something almost magical is a skill that you simply do... More

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.
