Girl & the Goat
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.
What Insiders Are Saying
One of the most well known restaurants in Chicago, and one that lives up to the hype.
Stephanie Izard continues to impress. Girl and the Goat has been open for years and the menu continues to be fresh and innovative. The goat skewers were amazing! Loved the pea pierogis. Olive focaccia with goat cheese was wonderful. Service was attentive without being cloying. Interesting drink menu. We will be back!
Thanks to a gift card from our daughter, we went to this restaurant and had an amazing meal. Following the recommendations of our server, we had the green beans, calamari, short ribs and pork shank. Pineapple and caramel corn and malt balls desserts topped off an amazing night.
In town for my husband’s 60th birthday. They brought a surprise dessert to the table - thank you! Great waiter and food was amazing. The only negative was one of the bartenders (a guy....no name tag or introduction given) was quite snide when we asked for suggestions of a rum drink that did not have chartreuse in it, telling us he didn’t know how to make anything else. Even the people around us at the bar found it quite rude.
Since we walked in the door. Amazing. Service. Food. Drinks. All was completely amazing. Lost for words. Must try.
A very well executed meal! Everything was delicious and drinks were great
Excellent food and environment!!! Our server was awesome !
Wonderful experience seated at the Chef's table! Deliciousness kept hitting our bellies all night long.
Excellent food & great service! VERY BUSY!!!
Favorite restaurant in the city. Never disappoints.
Second time at Girl& the goat and it did not disappoint. The green beans were phenomenal, the scallops were perfectly done but the crispy short ribs were my absolute favorite! I ordered the Chai-Town cocktail which at first our waiter forgot (and I did too) so I didn’t get it until the end of the meal, but our waiter took it off the tab which we thought was a very nice gesture. We love this place and plan to come back
Such a fun and unique restaurant. Definitely order the pig face and then pineapply ever after for dessert!
Amazing food! Everything was wonderful. The pig face was the best!
Food was amazing and our waitress was spectacular and friendly. Just a noisy place, so if looking for intimate conversation maybe not the best joint.
It's easier to say what was bad ... Absolutely nothing.
The food, service and ambiance were all terrific. We’ll be going back
Gorgeous food and great service absolutely perfect place for foodies
Such great food and great service. So helpful with what to order and how they bring out the food was amazing
Outstanding! The food, the staff and the atmosphere were all incredible. Everything we tried was delicious. Would highly recommend.
Always excellent, pig face was a highlight on this trip.
Beautiful food and the most professional service. I went there with my boyfriend for our 1 year anniversary and loved it. We will definitely be back.
Food was delicious
Very small, pricey bites
I’d go back
Absolutely loved it! Good dairy free menu too!
Was in Chicago for business and decided to have dinner here. What a delight - incredibly buzzy for 6:30 on a Monday night. My waiter guided me through the menu and helped with recommendations. All 3 dishes I had were very good, but the standout was the chickpea fritter chaat appetizer. Flavors I will remember - just a great dish. Wonderful, warm atmosphere, although know that the noise level is high and tables are very close.
Twas a great experience, I love the environment and story behind the restaurant most of all, I love the exotic culture of the food! Compliments to the chef!
Nice group of servers. I liked the noise personally but it was pretty looud
We’ve heard SO many wonderful things about this spot all the way from Dallas. It was our 1st time to visit. Made reservations @ 4:45 on a MONDAY and by 5:30, the restaurant was full and on a wait. Caylie explained the entire menu and even coursed out our selections perfectly. Fab cocktails and wine prices are spot on. We loved it so much, we shared the love at their sister restaurant, Somerset (in Viceroy hotel)... also just as beautiful! Such a memorable experience and will always make this “our” spot when we’re in Chicago. KUDOS team!
The food and the entire experience was exceptional! We enjoyed every second.
The service is small plate style. They bring the food out as it becomes ready. The server was great at helping us plan the timing of the order. Everything was fantastic!
Fantastic experience! Amazing food and service. Our server Chris couldn’t be more accommodating. When in Chicago it’s a must
Food was incredible, wine amazing.....perfect date and ambience. Had an amazing time!
We were got married the weekend before and celebrated by going back to Chicago for st Patrick’s day where we got engaged. The staff was kind, generous and informative. The food was beyond amazing and 100% our favorite spot of our trip! We would absolutely recommend eating/drinking here. Big shout out to the kitchen, management and staff. Many thanks for going above and beyond to make our dinning experience so special!
Great place! Highly recommend!
The food was exquisite and eclectic! We thoroughly enjoyed every course! Dessert was AMAZING!
Service and food were equally outstanding.
This was my second time dining here and this place doesn’t stop amazing us. We shared about 10 items from appitizer to dessert and were blown away with each course. Possibly the best tuna belly I have ever had!
Wife loved it it surpassed her expectations, server was dope music was off the chain we will be back
We went for a birthday celebration and Girl and the goat did not disappoint! Would go again!
