Girl & the Goat opened in 2010 with the goal of serving a family style menu of tasty, bold flavored foods in a fun and lively setting. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, a rotating list of craft beers, and a list of fun cocktails created by our bartenders.

Located at 809 W Randolph, Girl & the Goat was one of the first establishments in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor. We offer 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 accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.

Love that they have a vegan menu! All the servers and hostesses were so nice and accommodating. Food was good. But the salad was a bit overdressed for my taste and the veggies a bit dry.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We had an excellent experience. We start off the evening with goat empanadas corn & blueberry bread. We had a goat and pork sausage pasta and a trout dish. The flavors are amazing. I would highly recommend this place to try out. It is difficult to get a reservation and we had to go at 9:15 PM even though I was booking about six weeks prior to going on a Thursday night

There was a lot of hype around this restaurant and it was indeed difficult to get a reservation. The place is big and the noise level is high. The food was interesting and mostly quite good but definitely over salted. The service was really mediocre at best. Our server was scarce and not particularly friendly or engaging. They had that “hey, you’re lucky to be here” attitude as opposed to the “hey, we’re happy to have you” attitude, so low marks for hospitality.

Sat at the bar. Bartender was fantastic. Very knowledgeable of all the dishes. Made recommendations since this was our first time at the restaurant. Paired different dishes well for us and timed them all excellently. Great experience and great way to celebrate a birthday!

Service was amazing, as was the food. It will be hard not to come back often and spend way too much on green beans.

Overall very good! Food is delicious! We sit outside. Service is good. One waitress was a little in a rush. She grabbed menu from me when I was still trying to order one more thing. We did ended up ordering two more while eating. Other than that, it’s very good experience!

I believe they have the best food in Chicago. Had a very late reservation and was seated sooner. Service was slow to start due to a printer problem, but the overall experience was outstanding.

This was our first time. Food was really good. Favorites: Broccoli app, Chicken entree, and Caramel Corn & Malt Ball dessert (legitimately one of the best desserts I’ve ever had).
Service was fine; Our server was clearly rushed and perhaps had too many covers. She was kind but only moderately professional. Host staff was great.

Expensive but delicious. Probably best for two people because entrees split between four people was basically one bite each. Still some of the best food we have had in Chicago. Would love to return for another special occasion.

First time at the Kitchen Table
It was our anniversary and the receptionist seated us at a table for two on the far right of the server station. What a terrific spot to see the chefs in action and have good conversations with them on ingredients.

Our dinner at Girl & the Goat was amazing -- hands down, our favorite meal while traveling in Chicago. We ordered the blueberry pepper cornbread, the roasted pig face (our favorite), and the pork shank. Everything was so delicious, and our server was so attentive to us. When we're back in Chicago, we will certainly make a trip (and a reservation!) to Girl & the Goat.

So tasty! We had to get reservations a couple of months in advance but it was well worth the wait. The bar had a gin drink, the Royalty Tea, that was one of the best drinks I’ve ever had. We did 6 dishes for 3 people and it was just about the perfect amount of food.
