    We thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. The Manager, Samantha and server, Trevor were outstanding. We ordered several items, but my favorites were the classic green beans and the pork shank. Everything is great, you can’t go wrong. The natural wood decor with industrial beams set the energetic vibe. It is a bit loud, but we had no trouble talking.

    It was mediocre overall. A couple of the dishes were legitimately good, others were just OK, none were bad. The portions were all what I'd classify as tapas, including the ones supposed to be "large"; and for the record I don't actually like huge portions but it didn't match description nor price. It was extremely loud, of course some of this is unavoidable, but a major factor was the very loud music. The food was pretty boring, really. The goat was not highlighted well at all -- only 4 dishes, only 1 of which prepared in a way that didn't hide the main ingredient.

    Great food and service. Food came out by the runners as it was cooked, so you knew it wasn’t sitting in the windows. We had the goat empanadas. First time eating goat, and it did not disappoint. Also had oysters, green beans, branzino and lamb ribs. Everything was well prepared. Service was spot on. Music was a bit on the loud side, but the selection was right up our alley. Visiting from Oregon, and I’m glad we were able to dine here!

    Host asked us to wait for our entire party to arrive before seating us, however our table was ready and I had gotten several texts. The value of the food didn't seem worth it, honestly.

    Exceeded our expectations. We came here as a group of three for a birthday, a late Sunday night reso. The server was very attentive and helpful. We were stuck between two dishes, and the server decided to send us the one we didn’t choose (shrimp salad) as a complimentary dish— and it ended up being one of the best of the night. In order of favourites, we ordered: shrimp salad, cheese board (usual salad and charcuterie don’t even rank for me), the whole branzino, goat empanadas, lamb ribs, and the roast squash. As for dessert— they were all reliably excellent. I enjoyed the cocktail I got but regret thinking I had space in my stomach for all this. My friend had a mocktail that was somehow even better than my drink. Thanks again for making this night so special for us!

    We came to Girl & The Goat on our 1 year wedding anniversary and we enjoyed the experience so much. We were able to get the Chefs table for our dinner reservation and it was amazing . Our service was phenomenal and the food recos were amazing . The branzino dish was one of the best I’ve had and the goat belly was so succulent .

    We enjoyed a great meal. The service was excellent and our server made recommendations based on one or two of our choices. We had a really nice bottle of red wine, green beans, goat belly and skirt steak. I had previously read that the green beans should not be missed. I agree they were excellent. The goat belly was the big surprise for me. The meat was incredibly tender and the whole dish was an umami bomb. We loved it. The skirt steak was also very good, with incredibly balanced flavor and just enough heat. All of the Stephanie Izard restaurants are top notch and the original leads the way. Her team truly seems to truly love working there. Another West Loop gem.

    This place never disappoints! We were delayed for our reservations due to travel mishaps on arrival to Chicago. However, the staff was kind enough to squeeze us in close to closing albeit at a table about 2 ft away from host stand. Due to our late arrival many dishes were sold out but we enjoyed everything we ordered. Service was courteous and informative per usual.

    I love the food here. Unfortunately, I cannot hear a thing that anyone was saying. It is so loud. People were literally shouting. A real shame. Maybe the patio is better in the summer. I do not eat gluten and they have a very easy to follow gluten-free menu and our server was very helpful walking me through it.

    I’ve dined there before (maybe 2015?) and I recall being more amazed. The food was good, but much heavier and saltier than I recall. Some of the dishes were trying too hard, the vegetable flavors couldn’t come out adequately because there was way too much salt and spice. The drinks were good, ok but not spectacular, and the cocktail list was shorter than I would have liked. The noise level was a bit high and my friend and I were screaming at eachother to be heard. Our waitress was very sweet. I’ll go back but will wait for a menu rotation. It’s almost as if they’ve become too mainstream, not sure if that makes sense.
