Gorgeous food, intense flavors and delicious tastes. Our visit did not disappoint with attentive service and a great atmosphere. The restaurant called to cancel due to a power outage and then rebooked us later in the week. Slick and impressive.

Very creative menu in a very cool room. Servers were great at the bar and in the dining room. The menu is not for everyone but we loved it. Wood roasted pig face topped with a fried egg....so yes - not your ordinary fare. So...More

Food was over the top unique and delicious. Goat empanadas, calamari bruschetta, green beans, tempura Walleye, squash blossom Rangoon, duck tongues, pig face - all were fabulous. Plus, the deserts were unbelievable - we tried all of them! Be warned: come with an open mind...More

There was fish sauce on many dishes and lots of fish entrees. With a husband allergic to fish we were limited. Beware. And skip the peanut butter jelly desert. The service was the best we’ve had in ages.

We were a group of 10, ordered 10-12 items from the menu and ate family style. We finished with 4 separate desserts - Everyone had their expectations exceeded. Extraordinary evening.

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.

If you go for an early dinner, lots of natural light comes into the dining area and the atmosphere isn’t very loud at all. They have high chairs and will check strollers. Although there is no kids menu, if your kids eat... 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.
