We waited at bar while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, the bartender was friendly and helpful. They had Oberon beer which is one of my favorite.
Our waiter was informative when we asked about lower sodium dishes, which items could be adjusted and which came as is. The beef wonton soup was delicious and there was enough for 2-3 people. The pot stickers also very tasty. I had the slap noodles which were good also. Our daughter like the glass noodles. Both entrees were large enough to share. The cold octopus salad was refreshing and the veggies in it were crisp. Absolutely loved the desert, spring cake on a coconut cloud with chopped tropical fruits. We were full and agreed to share the desert amongst the 3 of us and left us wanting more!

The day was a bday / friends get together. There was a 2.50 charge for a small scoop of ice cream w sprinkles for a birthday celebration. we did not ask for this, and a charge was put on the bill, this should be brought to our attention.
I thought for a classy place this was tacky! Ms. Stephanie you might want to look into this? 🍦
Not sure if i’ll be returning?

Duck Duck Goat is such a fun experience located in the booming Fulton Market area. A play on Chinese dim sum for the appetizers and great entrees. We were girl crushing on Stephanie Izardm hoping she would emerge from the kitchen. The decor is fun and the playlist adds to the atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

I am a vegetarian an despite the name, they do have a varied vegetarian menu. Yay! My only quibble is that while we know that the food comes out in unknown order, it would have been nice given that we weren't sharing (my husband is a meat eater) if he had gotten his main dish before my food was finished.

We sat outside and enjoyed one of the first nice days of summer ! For three people we split 5 dishes and it was perfect. Crowd favorite was the Goat Belly Lo Mein and the Pekan Chicken. Love Stephanie Izard and will be going back soon.

Great cocktails, but if I never eat goat again in my life that will be fine. There's a reason it is not served anywhere else but in her restaurants and third world countries.

Best food in quite a while--terrific flavors. Routine chinese food at a local place is going to seem pretty bland after you try items on this menu. The soup dumpling appetizer is not to be missed.

My husband and I love this place. We always order delivery and it's always so much better to come into the restaurant. The server was a little grumpy, but our dinner was at the end of the night. We get it. I'm sure she was tired. Overall, the place/food is fantastic. We will come back.

The waiter was attentive to order right away. Thoroughly explain the menu. However the food was very very salty. For the price you can go to China Town and get more authentic food and bigger servings. I’ve tried some of the chefs other restaurants and they seem to love salt on all their food. Don’t think I’ll be going back to any of her restaurants anytime soon way way too salty. And not worth the price. I think most people get hung up on us see and be seen thing. Of course it’s in the restaurant Row and gets a lot of hype. My opinion, not worth it!

Very cool place with authentic interior, rotating section in the middle of the table, encouraging everyone to share, perfect service and very tasty food. We've tried some dumplings, duck rice and beef noodles, and everything was great, but you should keep in mind that size of the dish is moderate (except the rice maybe, it's just fine). Overall, it was a great experience, and if you see a word "Goat" in the name of a place in Chicago, it's definitely worth visiting!

Out of the three Goat restaurants (this, Girl and the Goat, and Little Goat Diner), this was my favorite. The food is just incredible, the service incredibly attentive, and the restaurant itself it such a beautiful well-decorated fun space to be in. Truly the most amazing lo mein I've ever eaten - and the vanilla ice cream with soy sauce was stunning.
