    Girl and the Goat has great food and service. We were seated at the chefs table where we were able to watch the chefs cook in kitchen and hear all the orders called out. Being a Fan of Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen, and other cooking shows, this was a very cool experience.

    We were seated ~20 mins after our reservation but once we ordered service was quick. Some dishes we ordered (skirt steak, pig face) were quite good but we were disappointed by the vegetable dishes which were overpriced and underwhelming. The sourdough in particular seems like something that would be served for free at other places. Have always wanted to eat here to see what the hype was about, but will probably not return as there are better places in West Loop now when cost, food quality, and ease of reserving are considered.

    The server was very good, attentive without being intrusive. Had great knowledge of the food. I eat mostly vegan/vegetarian and my boyfriend prefers steak. He made great recommendations. A little chilly to eat outside without heat lamps, but also we are Floridian.

    Girl and the Goat is quite simply one of the finest restaurants in Chicago if not the country. Food was spectacular and the service was probably the best service I have ever had. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation. Run don't walk.

    I rarely leave reviews but this place is an exception. Our server, Lucy, went above and beyond to make our dinner (and anniversary) special. Everything that she recommended, we went with and it was fantastic! She’s such a delight and genuinely cares about people. Additionally, we got to meet the manager, Samantha, who made our night event better! Do get the goat belly & empanadas - fantastic!

    Everything was fantastic. It’s just far too loud. You have to shout to maintain conversation and it gets exhausting. They could add a little bit of absorption (soft material) hidden in the ceiling and the place would still feel lively, but not an assault on your ears.

    Perfection. My only complaint is to allow a party to be seated if one is missing. Parking is always a challenge and it would have been nice to start drink orders, etc.. so they were ready when the person driving arrived. I am a repeat customer and the food/excellent service keep me coming back.

    We were seated so closely to the tables on either side of us, it felt like we were eating with them:( The noise level was unbearable. We could not hear each other very well across the table, had to lean in to talk. We had trouble hearing what the server was saying, and she had trouble hearing us. 4 of our 5 entrees came pretty quickly, then we waited and waited for our final dish- after reminding the server we had never gotten it! It finally came, but was a hot dish that arrived cold. The food overall was amazing. Creative and delicious. Service as well was great. We never had to pour ourselves water or wine. Fresh plates as entrees came was very nice. We would not rush to go back.

    Wonderful!! One of the best meals I had in Chicago! We sat outside, which was lovely, our wait staff was wonderful and attentive. The best for us was the meal pacing it was perfect! We had a small break between dishes so that really helped the fact that we ordered everything! But the most important thing was the food! perfect food! We didn’t have one dish that wasn’t amazing! But I still think about the goat empanadas, and the green beans, and the fish, and squash, and… and…..:) you will not go wrong here!

    Our waiter was amazing and he really knew the food. The food was incredible and each came out as they were prepared. They don’t wait for your entire order as they are plates to be shared. We ordered 4 things: the naan, goat empanadas, green beans and the pig face. The pig face took the longest to come out and we were already full. Almost canceled it but glad we didn’t. That was my favorite dish! I don’t like goat cheese but the goat empanadas were really tasty and I would definitely order those again.
