Adjacent, you'll find the Little Goat Coffee Bar - offering pastries and freshly brewed Dark Matter coffee. While you are there you can also purchase merchandise and Stephanie's This Little Goat line of sauces and spices.

Located within Little Goat Bread is our bar - where craft beer, wine and cocktails are served.

This was my first time at Little Goat. The food was absolutely delicious, with innovative flavor combinations and menu items as well as an extensive selection of comfort foods. I had the chickpea salad with mint, kale, and falafel fritters and it was fantastic. You can sometimes get a table or seat at the counter on a walk-in basis, but I recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment. Great place and we will definitely go again!

Little Goat Diner, like all of the Chef Izard family of restaurants is a comfortable dining experience with innovative, flavorful, and delicious foods. The service is impeccable, and the only reason I only gave it a 4 star rating for service because the host was not on point at all. He was the only negative in our experience. In an empty restaurant with us having a reservation for 8 people, he tried to cram is in a booth for 6. I explained that we were chefs and food people and would be ordering a ton of food, and he said he'd give us a table, but we needed to be done in 90 minutes. Nevermind that we had reservations, over a month out. He didn't exude the highest level of service that is normally indicative of an Izard or Boka restaurant at all. I'm just hoping he had a bad day. Otherwise, he likely shouldn't be in the service industry. Our server was phenomenal, very engaging and knowledgeable about the food, and the food was, as always, creative and delicious. I recommend the Little Goat Diner to anyone wanting to see what a classic diner would be, when elevated by an immensely talented chef and her gifted culinary team.

Terrible. I booked a table on Open Table ahead of time so I could be seated properly. I got there 11:40 and checked in with the hostess. Patiently waited until 12:15 when I saw that two sets of guests who came much later than me were seated ahead of me. I decided to go back to the hostess and ask what happened. She said someone else must have taken my reservation because there were multiple people with my name. They never bothered to check with me, i was literally sitting 2 feet away from there. And I honestly did not hear anyone else named Maria being called... and definitely not for two people. They seated 2 males, and then a group of 4 under the name of Kristen, a group of 6 college kids but none named Maria. So im not sure how she got that mixed up.

As an apology she asked us to pick from the starters menu and said it was on the house. We requested for the chicken fingers, she said okay will let your server know - that order of chicken fingers never came. Didn’t bother following up either.

Not a good experience. Waited 45 min for pancakes that were a bit over priced and waiters who put food on the table without looking. We ordered a side of bacon, some guy put it in front of me, two seconds later I had another guy literally switch it with another order of the same thing without so much as explaining why he did it.

Never coming back to this establishment.

The food was great but service was sub par. Our server was not very friendly and we waited forever just to get drink refills. She didn’t come to check on us, just tossed a dessert menu on our table as she walked by.

I've always like Little Goat but this is the second time that we have eaten there with a group . We had a reservation and were seated about 15 minutes late. That was ok. However, the service was very slow. My husband requested a drink refill which he never received. We like Little Goat, the food is good but the service has really declined.

Only issue was having to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. We had theater tickets and let them know. Didn’t matter. So warning anyone going before another event that table management can be an issue.

I had a reservation. I arrived early. Was ignored multiple times by host. Was not seated until 20 min after my reservation. The waitress did not come speak to us until 12 min after we were seated. The coffee was not worth the $4 spent (could have gotten a latte at any other establishment for less). The food was great!

I took my mom to the Little Goat for Mother’s Day brunch and it did not disappoint. We arrived ahead of our reservation time and they sat us almost immediately. The wait staff was very kind and willing to recommend items that I generally would not order right off the menu. Everything my mom and I ordered was unique and very fresh. I personally had the This Little Piggy Went to China and it was amazing! This Asian flavored inspired breakfast sandwich is now one of my all-time favorite brunch dishes. I would highly recommend the Little Goat for anyone looking for a unique breakfast or brunch with a vibrant atmosphere.

Everything was great. The food, ambiance, and service all did a great job and I had a pleasant experience in general. The cuisine style is fusion and creative. It combines many western and eastern elements in each dish. It was my 20-year old birthday dinner. The floats were said to be disappointing but the foods were satisfactory in general. I ordered a bowl of shrimp and pork belly, which contained interesting ingredients and seasonings except that the pork belly was a little bit oily.

Something weird is that when I called the restaurant in the morning on the day of reservation (312-888-3455) to ask about its bakery prices, the operator told me that since I made a birthday reservation, cake slices would be served for free, but our waitress did not seem to be informed of the policy at all when we arrived. With the phone call beforehand, we did not expect to bring a cake to the restaurant and ended up not having a cake, because the only daily flavor turned out to be mint chocolate and a friend could not eat mint. The restaurant did not offer any explanation.
