    I have been a loyal fan of all the girl and the goat restaurants for many years, but I feel like the quality and service is not what it used to be. The vibes are there but the food was really disappointing.

    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.

    I am cautious about spending money on "fine dining" from a celebrity chef. We don't know how much of their reputation is talk and how much is truth. After eating 9 different plates at the Girl and the Goat I can say with conviction that Stephanie Izard's reputation is fact. Every single plate was a delight in every bite. As my wife and I sampled each new dish we stared at each other dumbfounded at the shear number of flavors playing in our mouths then closed our eyes to savor their marriage into unique themes as we chewed and swallowed. Don't even get me started on the desserts! After experiencing the truth of her blueberry shortcake I am ruined to all other confections. It was like seeing Disneyland for the first time after spending your life in the local Shell station bathroom.

    The wife and I decided to give this place a try provided the numerous positive reviews and recommendations from friends for something that is must visit when we're in Chicago for our vacation. Despite sitting on the patio, we find that the ambience of the place is great, very eclectic, warm and inviting. However, we find that the food can be much better given the rapport of this place. We ordered the goat empanadas, shrimp salad, goat ribs and the green beans. The empanadas were okay as we found that theres too much going on with the sauce. The shrimp Salad brighten things up and definitely our favourite item whereas the infamous green beans was to be found way too salty (and I can handle salt). The ribs unfortunately were underwhelming given that the green beans overtook the flavour already. We relay the feedback to our server and he indicated that saltiness for the green beans are expected and have shared that some customers provided same feedback in the past. While we don't expect free food or anything, I'm surprised that our feedback is just taken lightly and as if it doesn't mean anything and that left a salty taste in our mouth (figuratively and literally) esp. given the value that we have to pay. There's many other great establishments in Chicago so if I would choose I may not have not chosen this place in the first place as we celebrated our first travel in the past 2 years due to the pandemic.

    Duck tartar was excellent. Shrimp Avacado with Crisp Quinuo was a bit too vinegar in my view, but still delicious. Skirt steak was very good. Overall, very good food. Purple Pig wins in my view.

    We had an awesome time in at Girl and the Goat. Shania took excellent care of us. Food was amazing. The only constructive feedback would be the people collecting the old plates or checking to see if we were done came by a bit too often. Thank you!
