The service is great. Waiters pay attention. You order 4 to 5 dishes for two persons and share the plates. The pig shank is devine. It's an absolute must! Also, try the popcorn dessert. You will have problems walking out after all the food. Remember to book in advance

The atmosphere was great, the food was fantastic. We were a group of four and shared and every dish was delicious. I would highly recommend the pineapple dessert which was, quite possibly, the best thing I have ever tasted.

Returned after several years. this time with a group of eleven. To make ordering both easy and varied we passed around a menu and everyone checked off two dishes. We also ordered each of the three breads. The noise level is way above average but we could still carry on conversations. Our server was helpful and patient and he was... More

If you can make a reservation do so otherwise you have to be there before the doors open in order to get a seat at the bar. The food is delicious. They serve small plates for sharing and recommend 4-6 for two people. We ordered 5 and 2 of those was a half order of the green beans and a... More

Fantastic dinner from start to finish. Unable to get a reservation so after a day at the Chicago Art Museum we walked over to the restaurant to try for a walk-in. Getting there at 4:45 thought maybe they'd think we were nerds for getting there so early, only to enter and find the place nearly packed with walk-ins. Waited a... More

My husband and I got a last minute reservation at this lively restaurant. We were surprised when the host sat us at the chef's table. We ordered wine and had a great show watching the chefs cook on part of the line. Everything was delicious. There is a large variety of food on the menu. Neither of us eats red... More

Stephanie Izzard's signature restaurant. This top chef has created her own nouvelle American altho' most folks I've dined with there find it hard to place it into any single category. But we all agree that it is fine dining cuisine in a hip, contemporary, high energy spot. It is hard to get reservations but they do take walk-ins for bar... More

Fell in love with this place! I've never had an experience where I would love each and every dish I've ordered from the menu.. well, it happened at Girl & the Coat! Their dishes contain a mix of ingredients you never thought can be mixed and they taste amazingly delicious! Good and knowledgeable service too, they will advice you well... More

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.
