    We came to Girl & The Goat on our 1 year wedding anniversary and we enjoyed the experience so much. We were able to get the Chefs table for our dinner reservation and it was amazing . Our service was phenomenal and the food recos were amazing . The branzino dish was one of the best I’ve had and the goat belly was so succulent .

    We enjoyed a great meal. The service was excellent and our server made recommendations based on one or two of our choices. We had a really nice bottle of red wine, green beans, goat belly and skirt steak. I had previously read that the green beans should not be missed. I agree they were excellent. The goat belly was the big surprise for me. The meat was incredibly tender and the whole dish was an umami bomb. We loved it. The skirt steak was also very good, with incredibly balanced flavor and just enough heat. All of the Stephanie Izard restaurants are top notch and the original leads the way. Her team truly seems to truly love working there. Another West Loop gem.

    I love the food here. Unfortunately, I cannot hear a thing that anyone was saying. It is so loud. People were literally shouting. A real shame. Maybe the patio is better in the summer. I do not eat gluten and they have a very easy to follow gluten-free menu and our server was very helpful walking me through it.

    I’ve dined there before (maybe 2015?) and I recall being more amazed. The food was good, but much heavier and saltier than I recall. Some of the dishes were trying too hard, the vegetable flavors couldn’t come out adequately because there was way too much salt and spice. The drinks were good, ok but not spectacular, and the cocktail list was shorter than I would have liked. The noise level was a bit high and my friend and I were screaming at eachother to be heard. Our waitress was very sweet. I’ll go back but will wait for a menu rotation. It’s almost as if they’ve become too mainstream, not sure if that makes sense.

    Food was tasty, I appreciated the Asian flare added, but I cannot say I was that impressed. Price is steep for what you get. Our server was a bit impatient, and did not seem too pleased when my friend and I didn't order drink or only ordered 3 dishes. I must say I was underwhelmed given all the good things I heard. I am not impressed.

    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.

    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!
