Girl & the Goat opened in 2010 with the goal of serving a family style menu of tasty, bold flavored foods in a fun and lively setting. To enhance the experience we offer a selection of wines from around the world with a focus on small producers, a rotating list of craft beers, and a list of fun cocktails created by our bartenders.

Located at 809 W Randolph, Girl & the Goat was one of the first establishments in the Randolph Restaurant Corridor. We offer dinner service Monday through Sunday as well as Sunday prix-fixe brunch, and have both patio and limited indoor table seating. Girl & the Goat accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan.

Finally went for our anniversary after living in the area for 6 years. It was everything all the hype made it out to be. Will definitely go back and soon.

This was the first time Girl and the Goat has done brunch. Stephanie Izard and her team knocked it out of the park. The 5 dish pre-fix set up was perfectly portioned and timed. There were some interesting combinations that I would not have typically ordered, but I’m glad I tried them because they were delicious. They are rotating the brunch menus every Sunday, so we’ll definitely be back to see what else they have up their sleeve.

2nd time there. Food and service were good. With Covid distancing was good
waiter always had mask on.
Disappointing point was the special was gone and we were there at 5pm.
I understand that in the Covid era supplies may be low, but why advertise a special that is gone at 5pm?

Drinks and desserts were good and pork shoulder was good.
Had cauliflower appetizer which was really good.

Will still go back as food is very good

Absolutely fantastic food and cocktails. We split 6 shared plates between 4 people (plus one dessert), and it was plenty. The green beans are out of this world, as are the rest of the plates we got. I would suggest getting at least one plate from each section (appetizers, seafood, meat). Worth the hype!

We enjoyed a lovely evening on the patio feeling safely distanced from other guests. The staff politely asked us to wear our masks as we walked to the table and our server was mindful to stand away from the table.... now to the food!

Delicious, beautiful flavor and attention to detail in each preparation. Our favorites were the crab rangoon squash blossom and the pan roasted halibut. We enjoyed a lovely Savior cabernet blend that paired nicely with our small bite orders.

So refreshing to enjoy dining out again during this pandemic.

This is our second time in Chicago and we had to come back to the Girl & The Goat, the food here is just on another level. Menu is different and they really go above and beyond with food creativity. Everything is always so tasty you want to scrape it off the plate.

It was below average. They’re not adapting to covid and dining restrictions well. Their seating capacity is pretty weather related, so adjust accordingly. We’re all adults, we understand the current pandemic, if you don’t have the seating available call an hour or two before and cancel the reservation. Don’t act like the guest has a problem when they arrive to the restaurant.

I loved that the seating was spaced out, before I always felt like I was sitting on top of the table next to me. Having one more room between tables made the experience even more enjoyable!

Has to be in the top 10 disappointments I have ever had at a restaurant. The food was mediocre. The service was pretentious. We could not have been more unhappy with what was supposed to be a great restaurant. There are certainly challenges in today’s world and restaurants are especially impacted. But even if the food was a disappointment there is no excuse for the service, both at the front door and server. I hate it when people act like they are doing you a favor by taking care of you and doing their job.

It was 92 degrees outside and incredibly humid, we had reservations and sat indoors and the ac was not running, we were sweating through our clothes and extremely uncomfortable the entire time, almost ruining the experience. Food was wonderful, but nobody from the restaraunt acknowledged the intense heat and humidity that the wait staff and clientele had to suffer through. All windows were shut and it was extremely uncomfortable for women and men, no circulation. Food was amazing though, it’s too bad.

Great Job Girl & the Goat! This was one of my first times dining out since COVID and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone wore masks, gloves, and kept their distance. The food was great and loved the add ins of local in-season ingredients! Thanks for making us feel safe.

Me & the lady went out for a nice little date night. Everything went smooth from start to finish with our reservation. They even bring your food out to you from lightest to heaviest which I liked. We got the shrimp & gotham greens salad... FIRE! We got the goat empanadas... AMAZING!!! & we also got the Kalbi style short ribs... ON POINT!! For dessert we got the caramel corn & malt balls & the Berries & creme which were both equally SUPERB! It was also very comforting that all the employees were wearing masks & everyone was spread apart. I’m definitely going back without hesitation

Food was great - ordered the crab rangoon, halibut and branzino. Everything tasted great - one minor issue was that the skin on branzino fish was overcharred. We were celebrating a birthday and got dessert on the house as a special treat. We expected to be seated outside but got only inside seating.

Mis handling of a reservation and being verbally attacked by a random waiter ruined the evening. Unprofessional and indifferent interaction.

Dismissive managers of the situation and careless handling of customers makes it difficult to support this local restaurant. Specially when there are many more that need support.

A $250+ dinner for two people was ruined by lack of respect and care.

The food was really good!

But due to the poor customer service will not be returning.

Vibe inside is rather boring since it's "Covid" guidelines. Much better during normal times. Food is great but extremely small portions for the prices charged. Have been to this restaurant multiple times and feel the portion size has gotten smaller than during my past visits.
