Great interior. Loved the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant. The waitstaff was great- super attentive and overheard it was my husbands birthday and surprised him with a treat.

And the food- omg amazing. The soup dumplings and handpulled noodles were definitely my fave.

It was very quiet when we went, possibly due to the corona virus outbreak.

The food was wonderful – would definitely recommend coming with a large group to try more things. But it was also lovely for a date night spot. Helpful, stylish service from Jerome.

The food was great, the decor was great, service was great. It was all great. A little noisy though but that's because they were busy.

The shishito peppers were amazing! Still dreaming about them. We also had the duck dim sum and the pork fried rice - wouldn’t recommend the dim sum but the fried rice was delicious. Also, our server recommended my friend and I to split 4-5 dishes, that would’ve been insane. The portions for the peppers and rice are much more appropriate for 4 people to share.

Playful menu, many dishes bring unexpected flavors together that really work. Hustle and Bustle of an authentic Asian market is the atmosphere, ideal for groups of 4-6. Definitely worth checking out.

Never acknowledged my wife’s birthday which was in the reservation notes. Good meal and experience. Just would be nice to acknowledge our celebration. Didn’t feel particularly special.

Very interesting and novel Asian food. Loved the pork belly lo mein and dumplings. All exceptionally tasteful. Service was very efficient and friendly Loved the open kitchen and fact they make all noodles and sausage in house. Tables close especially in light of concerns re virus. Difficult to have a personal conversation. Glad we were in early at 600P as we left and restaurant was full was very noisy and packed tightly.

It could’ve been great, but every dish was heavily over salted. Happy to finally try it, but will not come back. Will stick to Izard’s other restaurants.

Have been several times and always enjoy it. Went for a girl's night out and it was a great experience, perfect to share dishes, enjoy cocktails and friendly service. Was helpful for dietary needs in our group as well. For a slightly nicer casual night out, would recommend for date night or friend group.

Went here for my birthday and the staff made me feel so special! We’re vegan, so the separate vegetarian/vegan menu made dining there easy. Everything we had was delicious, and we even had leftovers because of the generous portions. Would absolutely dine here again!

Duck Duck Goat is a favorite of mine! From the phenomenal service to the great tasting food, Duck Duck Goat will not disappoint. The noodle dishes are made in house and are well worth it! Make it a priority to visit Duck Duck Goat if you haven’t been before. You will be happy you did!

The food, service, and ambiance are all top-notch. Cannot say enough good things about this place. Food is so flavorful and inventive. Service is always attentive and informative (especially Jonathan, I always hope he's my server when I come in). Ambiance is a mix of lowkey, but also energetic, with decor around the restaurant to look at for hours.

Duck Duck Goat continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. The Peking Duck is by far the most incredible thing on the menu. When dining here, your question should not be "should we get the Peking Duck?" It should be "how many Peking Ducks should we get? Can't wait to go back again soon!

Tough reservation unless very early. Always a treat to eat at Stephanie Izard place. excellent duck spring rolls and pork belly. Pork noodles were a little greasy with ground pork.

I wanted a duck and they had all been reserved for a party. If we wanted one we would have to wait an hour. Then the waiter recommended a dish and I didn’t really care for it. I usually love this place. This was an off night.

Excellent chinese food and great service. Both times, we've had very narrow tables with our neighboring diners basically right on top of us. They really squeeze you in!

Glad I tried it, but I would probably not go back. I love dim sum. I knew better than to expect traditional styled dim sum at this type of restaurant, and I was very open to an inventive, "fusion" sort of twist on the traditional. It certainly delivered in that respect, but the taste was just so-so in my opinion. Many of the inventive ingredients just did not work for me. Maybe they work better for others but not me. The kitschy Chinese décor is kind of fun, even if way over the top. The service was good.

Been here 3 times and never been disappointed. Food is amazing. A bit crowded at times even if I come at 9:30pm. Food more than makes up for the noise and crowd.

It was really wonderful! I’m a vegetarian and there were so many options to choose from - something I don’t always get.
