Overall, a “meh” experience. One member of our party had her heart set on a grilled cheese, but was informed they were missing most if the ingredients so weren’t offering. A grilled cheese! How do you not have “most of the ingredients” for a grilled cheese?!? When we asked if maybe they could use substitutes, the server responded “unfortunately no”. What we did have was over salted and over sauced. Won’t be back.

Ordered the Tonkatsu. Sorry, but it was just thrown together—lacked integration. If your chef is honestly proud of this sandwich—there is a problem......

Away from my individual / anecdotal experience, your team should guard against the echo-chamber affect. Great neighborhood, great demographic, great marketing...... don’t automatically translate into a great meal or a great dining experience. Make sure you are challenging all of your processes.

This is a very popular Chicago dinner, with good quality and innovative food and drinks! But the seats are bit too narrow and noise level is a bit too high.

I’m sure this place is fun if you’re 22years old but I found it to be noisy with mediocre food. The Caesar salad was drowning in dressing which made the greens unappetizing. White wine was too warm. Server was sweet but not enough to make me come back.

I met up with some former co-workers to reconnect at Little Goat and had a great experience. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. It was a beautiful day and I really enjoyed sitting in the outdoors. The focaccia was notably great.

It's slightly overpriced and a diner really shouldn't be ala carte. Fries with a sandwich in Chicago should require a separate charge.

Little Goat is a fine restaurant; good food and service. A little too expensive, a little too noisy to have a conversation. We were there for breakfast, so the noise level did not add to some sense of "party" or "excitement" that some might want in bar scene. It was just annoying.
The food was good and I will try one more time.

Love Little Goat Dinner, everyone who works there is super nice, happy, courteous. One MAJOR disappointment, they took the Sloppy Goat off of the menu, serious bummer! I only get to Chicago once a year, and i was looking forward to that Sloppy Goat all year, and when i saw it was removed from the menu i damn near shed a tear. I'll be back next year, but with a heavy heart.

I think most people enjoy it
We went for lunch. By the time you pay the valet (as couldn’t find street parking) and the food, it was expensive for lunch. The food was good. The noise level is extremely high, so not a good place if you want to converse. I am more interested in healthy food and many choices are pretty calorie laden. There is a veggie burger option, although I decided to have eggs.

I love the fusion aspect of their dishes. We had the bibimbop, pork belly fries, and the little piggy. I recommend all three! Pork belly was crispy, the fries were delicious, being soft on the inside, crisp on the outside, and the sausage in the little piggy had a nice kick. I just wish there were more veggies with the little piggy but since we got the bibimbop I was able to get them. Would love to go for their lunch menu next time.

Little Goat is wonderful! I took a friend from out of town for lunch here. We wanted something that's pretty 'Chicago' without having too much of an influencer vibe. This was great! We loved the food and the staff was so friendly and interactive with us!
