We learned quickly that to get a meal here you show up early when it opens; you get the same great foods and service, very knowledgeable staff and enjoyable food items.

I had read a lot of reviews on the restaurant and all were great. The reviews were not exaggerated, this place had it all. Everything from the atmosphere to the open kitchen was wonderful. Food at service 5 star plus. You have to make reservations well in advance but the wait it worth it. We had a party of 4... More

I literally flew from NYC just to have dinner here. It's my go to spot when in Chicago and worth every mile to fly here. Love the food, staff, and ambiance. I couldn't recommend any place more than here and can't wait to be back! Top 3 on my all time list.......and it's it big list!

Was told there was a 3 month wait for reservations, but more investigation revealed that if you are a 1 or 2 person group, you can go in and go to the bar, and wait for a seat at the bar. We did this, waited while having a drink for about 45 min., then got a seat at the bar.... More

Over the last couple of years I have been to the Girl and the Goat. This time did not disappoint either. The dishes are possible exotic for some people but really very well prepared, tastefull, and 2-3 tapas like dishes per person is just right.If you are in doubt just ask the knowledgeable waiters for advice.A lovely experience.

One of two restaurants I have urged people to try when in Chicago. You can book a spot on Open Table or just go early. We arrived at 5:30 and were seated immediately. The menu is impressive. Your server will tell you that four people can split 8 dishes. Do not believe it! We split 6 fabulous dishes and were... More

We really enjoyed the food and service at Girl and the Goat, but the tables are extremely close together, and unfortunately ruined some of the ambiance for us. Our waitress was excellent and suggested several dishes that we tried along with wine to go along with our meal.

Description
Girl & the Goat has been serving fun foods, craft beers, and making wine in a rustic and kick-butt environment since summer 2010. The restaurant opens at 4:30 every day, and stays open until 11pm on weeknights and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays (until those last late night eaters scrape their fork across the plate for the last time, or finish licking their plates until they're shiny and clean). The Goat's menu is divided into three categories: Vegetable, Fish, and of course Meat--while vegetable, fish, or meat are respectively the main stars of their categories, there are crossovers in each area so you'll get a little bit of everything. Bread is baked daily, and there are always new creations on the menu. Girl & the Goat sits in the West Loop smack dab in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor, but the location is still gritty enough to appeal to the chef’s integrity. The Goat has a variety of seating choices, including a comfortable lounge, bar seats, standard table seating, and four seats close enough to the kitchen line that you might be asked to help.Girl & the Goat blended their own wine, and it's tasty. There are beers on tap from Three Floyd’s and a couple others. If you're lucky, you might come across the elusive collaboration beers that Stephanie personally crafted with a couple of beer buddy cohorts. In addition to tap beers, there's also a bunch of bottles to choose from. Girl & the Goat is open 7 days a week, because The Goat is a tireless beast, and besides, who needs rest anyway? Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.
