    Underwhelmed. Excellent service, but that’s about it. We reserved standard seating. But, somehow got seating at communial table at the very back. Very loud, can barely hear the person across from you. The food was just ok.

    The service was wonderful! The food was also pretty good. Not spectacular, but definitely good. The shrimp salad was great, however. We sat very close to the open kitchen and servers and that personally overwhelms me and makes the meal feel hectic. If you’re further away, the ambiance seemed better. Would try again.

    Phenomenal hospitality, food and ambiance! This was our second time in the city and our second time back to girl and the goat. We highly recommend the pork shank! Plenty to share for 1-3 people! Every dish has unique flavors and textures! It all keeps you coming back for more. Every dish was 10/10 and the spicy margarita was superb!

    We've been here previously and had great experiences, so I'm hoping this was just an off night. The food as always was excellent. The server had recommended we choose five dishes for two of us to share and that we order them all at once and he'd pace them appropriately. Firstly, he should have clarified different dishes might be a bit more filling. The pork shank alone, while delicious, was so large and filling that withe four other dishes, it was just too much food. The bigger issue is he didn't pace it at all. The first three of five dishes came out within minutes of each other and we had all three on our table at once. They don't even swap out sharing plates which is pretty customary at most restaurants like this. We were there for my husband's birthday so the fact that they had us in and out in an hour left us very rushed and uncomfortably full because we were eating so fast to try to keep up. I'm hoping this was a fluke and that they aren't sacrificing guest experience for table turnover as if this was a casual chain dining restaurant.

    Great service and delicious food! We appreciated how the servers described each meal as it was served to us. We ordered the chickpea fritters to start, my husband got the pork shank, and I had the halibut. Everything was cooked perfectly and my husband said the pork shank might've been the best he's ever had.

    I was very excited to eat here considering the restaurant is owned by an Iron Chef/Top Chef winner. I was not disappointed by the food at all and service was great! The only downfall was that the noise level was extra high and I had to shout in order to be heard. Overall, I had a great time and I would still return despite having to strain my vocal cords lol. 🙂
