    Overall, this is a really good restaurant. The noise level is very high, which made it difficult to have conversations with those of us at the table. Also, this is minor, but the air conditioning was cranked up so much that it was difficult to enjoy the food as we were nearly needing to cover ourselves up with napkins.

    Wonderful evening spent at Girl & the Goat. This was my first time! Delicious food. Sat super close to the next table which was a little awkward at first but they wished my friend a happy bday on their way out, which was sweet. Our waiter was super friendly and accommodating. The runner who cleared our plates kept dropping food on us (well twice) which was a little messy. We received a dessert on the house for a birthday which was a lovely surprise as we ordered one for the birthday girl as well! Double the sweetness! Thanks for a great night!

    Great food. So good. The server was below average at best. My meal was brought out after everyone was done this evening and she acted like I was imposing by asking why. So she said she didn’t want to flood the table. Well we told her we were all eating entrees and they were all $35 so stop acting like it’s always family style whether you like it or not. It might be up to the customer a bit. And half the food is not served to be shared easily. Not even close to an apology for making me wait until everyone was done. Nope. A rude waitress to add insult to injury. And no napkins and had to ask for plates throughout.

    Let's set the food aside, the service was astounding. We couldn't have been happier with our server and the attentiveness to us as customers...then the food, wow. We were thrilled! The pork shank was to die for. The goat belly was small but delicious. Everything else we had was top notch too. Will be going back to sample the rest of the menu!

    Had a fantastic time. Got to sit a the chef's table and had a great time (Thanks Amanda). The kitchen staff was very friendly and 100% of the food we ordered was so good. If you can I recommend the Chef's table. Also, the deserts were very the top.

    Great food. Everything was delicious. The only thing was they put tables so close to each other that you pretty much feel like you’re sitting on top of each other. There is no elbow room. But, if you don’t mind it, for sure make reservations and order everything on the menu!

    Best food I think I have ever had in an American restaurant....really...stopped the conversation and brought tears to my eyes!. Music TOOO LOUD...wait staff straining over tables to be heard, we could do little but gesticulate...ok, so I am way over 30 but raw throat after dinner due to screaming is unnecessary...

    We have eaten at this restaurant many times. The food is still very good but I can't give it 5 stars as I would have in the past. My issues this time were that they took the long-running broccoli off the menu and the newer vegetable dish - caulilini - was not nearly as good. Also, I feel that they have downsized portions - the salmon poke was very small with barely any pieces of fish and the halibut while delicious was also too small for sharing. The desserts were disappointing. The chocolate pavlova had no chocolate taste at all and was more like a plain merengue. Very overpriced for that type of dish.

    I made a silly mistake and chose a reservation time for the wrong day. I was so embarrassed!! The hostesses didn’t miss a beat and explained they could fit us in no problem. We sat down in 5 mins (945 pm on a Monday, mind you) and the food was better than we imagined. The green beans are going to stick with me for a while.

    Thrilled to get a table at Girl and the Goat since we watched Stephanie Izard win Top Chef many years ago. Upon arriving, we were seated directly next to the hostess stand. It was cozy enough. The waiter came quickly almost too fast. I mentioned some wines that I like. He hadn't heard of them but recommended a Sicilian red because it had a unique grape. I am game. Then we asked about cheese plates. He said Stephanie makes her own cheese. We were excited and ordered his suggestions. The food came fast before the wine. The cheese was brie. It did not look homemade. The spicy relishes served with it were delicious with the brie. Although I was hoping for the homemade cheese. I think that is a different cheese plate base on observing other dishes served around me. The wine came at the end of the cheese plate. This is a little disappointing because I like to pair them together. The smell of the wine was fantastic but the taste was "Meyer lemon." I couldn't sip it again, too tart. The server then revealed he just started working there. Perusing the menu, "Ring of Fire" drink caught my eye. I asked if this is like a Margherita because it is made with tequila. The waiter shook his head indicating "no" and said too heavy on the jalapeño. Disappointed, I order a Reisling. It was ok. Then we see a server with some interesting drinks. When asked server she said they are "Ring of Fire." "They are like a spicy Margherita" Huh? The green beans which are delicious but I would love it if they were served along side another dish. Nonetheless they were my husband's favorite dish along with the "pigs face." In an effort to like my drink, I ordered the "Ring of fire" and gave up on the Reisling. It came after the food was consumed. I liked the taste. Yay! Except that the waiter was circling because you cannot linger even with empty tables. Feeling rushed, we left. Where is the sommelier or someone to steer us with the drink menu. It would be nice if the drink with the food.
