Grateful for a separate, interesting and delicious vegan menu!!! The scallion pancake was great - healthy and filling and the legendary smoked fries lived up to their reputation!
Great time overall
Superb food in a casual setting. Nice cocktails and great sandwiches
I met my family at Little Goat Diner for brunch this past weekend. We had a fabulous time! The setting is just beautiful and the food is unbelievably good. The only negative was our server was very inattentive. She visited the table to deliver drinks twice to others, but didn't bother to ask if I wanted a coffee. Then, after the food was delivered, we never saw her until she brought the bill, even though we needed both coffee and water refills. I had a great time anyway, because we were busy visiting and enjoying our (AMAZING!!!) food, but the service left me feeling less than welcome and a little wanting in the coffee department.
Knew it was casual but didn’t realize it was really casual!!
Food and service was fine. Very friendly staff. Def a place to grab something to eat.
Great service & amazing pancakes!! Killed combo!!
Great food and service.
Was wonderful, hopefully the burger buns will be available before we order next time. (Love the fact they are made in house)
Went out with some friends. Had a late reservation and the food was great as to be expected. I would best describe it as refined relaxation. Overall great spot and great starting point for a night out in West Loop.
Great menu variety. Food was excellent, though they should have given me a sharp knife to cut my pork chop. Want to return to order more of the great stuff on the menu.
Very popular neighborhood gem. Great for brunch and has a wide enough menu to incorporate various savory and sweet items. Its a complete weekend hot spot. I'd recommend always getting a reservation though.
They brought out my goat burger and while the bun was warm, the meat patty was cold. I told the waitress and she had it remade, but we had to wait. They also initially forgot to put in the Brussels sprouts we ordered. They never even offered to comp anything. We used to love this place. We felt like it’s totally gone down hill.
I’ve been to Girl and the Goat so I expected this to be somewhat on the same level. It wasn’t. The portions were huge. My pasta dish was heavy and tasted like something I would get at Olive Garden. Huge disappointment after going to Girl and the Goat. Maybe I ordered a bad dish, but I don’t even think it had a good atmosphere. I wouldn’t return. I’ll stick to Girl and the Goat.
Definitely expected better food from here — everything was oversalted and not that interesting. Very pricey for what it is, but that's West Loop. Really cool interior and amazing service, drinks are great but if you're looking for something really interesting/good food wise, I wouldn't recommend.
The food is consistantly good - and interesting. But the staff is what makes this place. Great friendly service ... and when things don't go to theirs or your satisfaction, they know it and they do what needs to be done to keep the customer happy. It was a wonderful evening.
My husband and I came here for Valentine’s Day. The Little Goat Diner was a nice restaurant in the West Loop area. I felt the menu was great for a diner. I ordered the Shrimp and Pork Belly and it was delicious! My husband ordered the 1/2 pound burger and it must of been good cause he devoured it! The noise level increased as we were there and Inwished I had asked for a booth as I felt the table for two was a bit cramped. Our chairs were touching the customers chairs behind us. I felt like we were competing for space. It was a great place to eat and I would recommend. My next place on my list is the The Girl and the Goat!
Great food, great service, fun atmosphere. What more can you want? Love this place!
Met a business colleague for breakfast and it provided a great relaxing spot to catch-up. We were not rushed at all and waitress was helpful in explaining our bakery choices.
The dinner menu is somewhat limited but the two items we had were delicious. Desserts were also very good but patrons should be warned about the large servings. Lighting was just right though the noise level got a bit beyond conversation friendly. Our waiter, Ben, was the best, helpful and always there when needed but never intrusive. In all, a really nice experience, we would recommend and go back.
Good food and atmosphere
Best burger (goat!) in the city
Service was awesome, staff was so friendly and they all helped each other out. The food definitely met my expectations and went beyond that. Things I would not think go together they make work! Very happy with my experience and cant wait to come again
Food and drinks were pretty good. Service was seriously lacking.
Delicious- so nice.
The ambiance was loud but not too loud! Very energetic and exciting!
We were very glad we made a reservation, as even around 2 PM the wait was up to an hour. We only waited about 15 minutes for our table because of the reservation. The food was generously proportioned. I ordered the Monoyaki, which had a pretty spare description in the menu. My mistake for not asking questions, but the dish consisted of a fried piece of dough, with just slivers of pork belly and then a delicious wasabi sauce. The promise of pork belly made me picture a more protein-centric food, so I was disappointed in something that was basically a big savory doughnut. We got the crab dip for the table which was also well proportioned, and everyone enjoyed their food. My wife got a bloody mary and it was really excellent. I don't come into the city too frequently (we're burb dwellers), so the prices always seem a little high to me, and I know my experience was tainted by my order, which I didn't love, but overall I quite like the Little Goat and will definitely keep it on my list of go-to brunch places for when I want to take out-of-town friends to a fun Chicago place that shows off our creative and fun food culture.
Comfort food in a relaxed atmosphere. Great staff, with a willingness to make some adjustments to accommodate a particular palette. Reservations are ideal given its popularity, but it is worth the wait.
Food was delicious but they forgot the smoked salmon cream cheese in my smoked salmon omelette and had to remake it which took a bit of time. It was very noisy, waitress was very nice but hard to get a hold of to notify about the missing salmon...prices for some items like fountain soda, etc were high imo. I would still go back, just a few kinks is all.
Great food, cocktails, and brunch menu. Love the decor and ambiance. A must try!
Been here many times. Consistently good food and service.
Most of the people I talked to said they preferred Little Goat to Goat and Girl. I hadn’t been to either, so I was excited. Definitely a busy place. We waited an extra 20 minutes past our reservation time, and our server seemed in the weeds. Ordered the Pork Belly / shrimp noodle dish, it came in a timely manner, but my side of Brussels sprouts didnt arrive until after we were done eating. Sprouts were great! But my entree was boring. Wish I had ordered something else.
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here. This is not your everyday diner, it’s more gourmet and inventive. I got the bullseye French toast and my husband got the shrimp and pork pasta, both very good. We will be back.
Super fun casual spot. You won't break the bank but you will be spoiled by menu choices and high quality food. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Great place to celebrate our friend's birthday recently.
Great food, cool spot - only downside is its kind of loud, but not anything crazy... also parking is tough on Randolph, so if you drive, prepare yourself to pay $16 for valet parking. But yeah, awesome food, great menu, absolutely loved my lunch.
Great unusual diner food. Love this place!
Wonderful first time experience. Definitely returning. Food was awesome!
Fabulous food, great bloody marys for brunch or lunch and dinner!
Worst server I’ve had in years. Several times she left without getting the whole order or letting us ask for anything. It was almost comical. Will not go back for a long time.
Disney on Ice
Fabulous food! Definitely a different environment then Girl and the Goat...a true diner with exceptional food.
