    One of the best meals I’ve eaten in Chicago and worth a visit. 3 of us tried several plates: the crispy chicken, lamb ribs, and pig face were standouts, but we also enjoyed the green beans, cheese plate, and lamb belly. Nothing but excellent, well balanced, and delicious flavors in each dish. The menu is interesting and refined. Just a lovely evening overall. Thank you Goat team!

    I am such a big fan of Stefanie from top chef, so this restaurant has been on my wish list for many years. We are from FL and had to go when we made it to Chicago finally! We are not adventurous eaters nor foodies by any means but tried everything we never thought we could! The chick pea fritters were incredible! The pork shank was to die for! And Chris our server was the nicest and attentive! Highly recommend going! Will definitely try all her other restaurants next time in town

    We were in town for a short trip to Chicago and, I’ve been such a fan of Stephanie’s since her winning season on Top Chef, I was so excited to try Girl & the Goat. The entire meal was spectacular. While we were a table of two, I did make sure we tried everything we could knowing it’s a pretty vast menu for just two people. We had the tomato and stone fruit salad, the green beans, the goat empanadas, the steak, and the popcorn dessert and all of it was perfect. I wish we could have eaten more, but there was no room left! The restaurant is really efficient. Tables getting turned over and seated with the next party in less than 5 minutes (if that!). We cannot wait to come back. Make a reservation and go eat at Girl & the Goat as soon as you can!

    Dinner was great. However, was sat 45 minutes after my reservation time. For food this expensive and a place this nice, I find that unacceptable. The reservation was already on the later side, and guests in my party had work early the next morning. Was given free dessert for my trouble but in my opinion more should have been done. Food was still excellent, though very small portions. I would probably go back, just not in a party larger than 4, as you may have to wait even if you made your reservation over a month in advance.

    The wait staff was wonderful, giving good recommendations and very prompt service, however the pace of the meal felt a bit rushed for us. We are also happy that the management pays for benefits, but disappointed that they do so by charging diners a surcharge to do so.

    One of the most outstanding and unique restaurants in the world. Culinary creativity, execution, and matchless service make this one of the only restaurants where I will accept a 5:00pm reservation that has to be made 2 months in advance. If you leave Chicago without dining here, you missed the boat. Other than New Orleans, this is the only city where I make dinner reservation before booking my hotel. Congratulations Ms. Izard and your ream for creating and sustaining something truly extraordinary. See you again soon.

    As advertised, the food was wonderful. The loud music made it difficult to talk. The table we were at was wide enough that we had to talk loudly to hear each other. Turn the music down so people can talk while they really enjoy your food. Thanks. Oh, and get off my lawn.

    My favorite Chicago restaurant because the creative genius is second to none. I’m always blown away by how they can pair flavors together that wouldn’t occur to me and make it taste so mouthwatering. It doesn’t hurt that the cocktails are just unique and flavorful. Can’t wait to go back!
