Duck Duck Goat Ratings and Reviews
A few items on the menu we wanted to try were out already which was around 7pm, but the waitress recommended other items that were delicious. Peking duck took about an hour to prepare so just make sure to let them know beforehand, but it was worth the wait.
We enjoyed our visit immensely! Brandon was the best waiter~ very helpful with dinner suggestions and food descriptions. We were celebrating several birthdays and were treated to 4 different menu items on the house. Everyone was extremely friendly and outgoing and the food was out of this world. I have never experienced better Chinese food, especially without a grain of rice involved!
Love, love, loved it! We will be back! Thank you, Chef Izard!
We are big fans of Stephanie Izard and we were excited to try Duck Duck Goat! We ordered 4 items and shared them. Won Ton soup with shortrib wontons (salty), Duck and Goat Egg Rolls (very greasy), Vegetable fried rice (extremely greasy) and Green Beans in black bean sauce. Overall, we felt the vegetables in the dishes were really fresh and nice, but the food was overly salty and quite greasy. We were so disappointed. We're not sure if it was just an off night for DDG, but we don't plan to return.
It seems that every restaurant that wants to do a "modern take" on classic chinese just makes food that is less tasty for more money. The best thing here was the scallion pancakes. Mostly traditional and very good, thought for almost 3 times what you would pay in Chinatown. Their take on potstickers was weird and not very good with peanuts. Soup dumplings were small and just OK. Very disappointing. Back to Chinatown for us.
Duck Duck Goat has the most important thing for dining out - Delicious Food. Had the soup dumplings - which are what you go back to a place for. So good. Beef Slap Noodles - again, delicious. And the pork fried rice is elevated and also delicious. The cocktails were great - maybe a bit expensive, but I guess all cocktails are these days, so no complaining there. This was our first time, and we had a seat in the first room with pictures - it felt right, but now want to go back to sit in the front room. Not often I want to go back somewhere to try a different seat! And the service was perfect. Highly recommended all around.
Great first DDG experience. The family style dishes were fantastic. Especially the Chongqing Chicken and Moo Shu Pork. The beef wonton soup was also superb. Wasn’t a single disappointing item on the menu (we tried maybe 8-9 total dishes). Also an excellent old fashioned - tasted like it had cinnamon in it. Very unique take on an old fashioned. Got 2! Will definitely be back in the near future.
The restaurant has a great ambience. We like the appetizers better than the entrees and felt the food - while still good - wasn’t as good as our first time here. The food comes a bit too quickly but the server doesn’t rush you to leave. All in all though a good choice for interesting Asian food.
We've always been Girl and the Goat fans so were excited to try this one. Service was impeccable and friendly. The drinks were great and we all fought over every last bite of the food. I doubt you could go wrong with anything you order, but we especially loved the green bean side, the duck hearts, the silver needle noodles, the pork belly and the octopus, cucumber and peanut salad. Finished with the mango coconut cloud and the almond 'tofu.' An amazing dining experience - highly recommend.
We have been to all of “The Goat” restaurants and this has become our favorite. We celebrated Christmas celebration with our two daughters and the significant other. Our daughter Chloe and her boyfriend Ben flew in from Seattle and the rest of us came from Kalamazoo. The staff was the best. The food was the best. We never felt rushed and the staff gave us a place to store our Christmas gifts! We are all foodies and follow Stephanie on Top Chef and Iron Chef.
My first time and I took my parents when they were visiting in town. Typically we go to more traditional American restaurants with my parents but I tried to get the out of their comfort zone and it worked! They absolutely loved it and so did I! From the food to the drinks to the service everything was delicious. Our waiter, John, gave fantastic recommendations that pushed the envelope but were also manageable. Highly recommend it.
I really hate to write a negative review for one of Stephanie Izard's restaurants, but the food is overpriced, excessively salty, and the atmosphere is overly noisy. The staff needs to taste the food. I almost gave the leftovers to a homeless man outside the restaurant, but I didn't want to ruin his palate. I don't know how long she lived in China doing her research, but she might want to go back and get a better handler for the trip.
First time here, I had been to Girl & Goat before. I liked the atmosphere a lot, cozy, elegant. The waitress was good, but somehow we didn't click. Maybe she tried too hard to anticipate me, and it felt like she was second-guessing me. The food, was somehow over-stated. The shrimp toast, way too rich (the fat dimmed the other flavors), the beef wonton soup salty and again that hid the other flavors. The glutinous rice dumplings were great -the kind of quality I expected where the fried coating was light and didn't overwhelm the dumpling flavor. Very delicious. The restaurant also gave me a complimentary dish of cucumber salad -.also delicious, light, cooling, crunchy. I would try DDG again just because I like Girl & Goat a lot.
Fun venue with great service. I found the food to be too salty that night. It was over salted on all the dishes that we ate, which was a shame because it dulled appreciating the complex and interesting ingredients in the dishes that we chose. There is no replacement for the chef/cooks to taste the food on a regular basis. I was disappointed since I am from out of town and really looked forward to eating at a Stephanie Izzard restaurant.
Love the decor, love the food. Plenty for all kinds of picky eaters to chose even no soy in a Chinese restaurant. But this is not just any Chinese restaurant. Definitely a level above and beyond others in Chicago. Reminded me of the excellent meals we had in Shanghai. Great service, such a knowledgeable server, couldn’t have been nicer. They even called me to accommodate my request for an earlier reservation. How often does that happen? A winner.
Absolutely OUTSTANDING meal. Our parents were in town and we took them here Wednesday night before a big Thanksgiving meal. Chinese and Japanese, they both thought everything was incredibly authentic and delicious. It was an absolute joy of a meal and we cannot wait to go again.
I absolutely love the food and drink here & so does my boyfriend. We heard they do something a little special for someone's birthday so I brought him here because it's his favorite restaurant. There must have been a disconnect with the waitress and the woman who sat us because she said happy birthday but then there was no special occasion recognition. I felt embarrassed to ask so we left without whatever special treat that we were told would come if we were dining for something special. It wasnt a big deal but I would have maybe taken him somewhere else that I knew would be a fun "birthday experience."
