Hostess was a little arrogant, but the bar tender and server were great. Soup dumplings and xinjian noodles were wonderful as expected

Great place for groups. We had a small work outing with a group of women. Everything is shareable so we all got to try different dishes.

This was an interesting experience. We had a reservation at 5pm and were done being served by 540pm w 4 courses. I felt rushed and couldn't enjoy the individual dishes. The crab ragoon was good and had what seemed to be an outer pastry dough. The beef wonton soup was the best soup I've ever had which makes this review hard. The green beans were not good at all and the Dan Dan noodles were a terrible take on a Chinese version of a spaghetti w meat sauce. The combination was questionable, but for more confusion, the noodles were
great. Just an odd experience and we probably won't be back.

Always a great evening. The food is consistently excellent, the service amazing, and a fun evening for a group of friends. Highly, highly recommend this as a top choice when in Chicago. We especially enjoy that favorites are available but there are always new items to try as well.

Not your usual Chinatown dim sum.
Amazing food, service and ambiance.
BBQ pork buns, Xian spicy potatoes, egg foo fun and pork potstickers were exceptional.

Cocktail and beer list was wonderful.

Celebrated our daughter’s 20th bday here. Thanks for the dessert treat for her!

She liked the music you payed too.

Will definitely come back.

We loved the decor. It was very old Chinese restaurant with an edgy modern, twist. The service was great starting at the door, at the bar and at our table! The server was knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations. We loved the goat and duck soup dumplings! And the dan dan noodles were amazing. The duck fried rice was savory and gooey with the soft boiled egg. Yum! This place is not to be missed. Also, the bathrooms are great, just a fun added touch. Thanks for a great dinner and experience. We will be back!

The food is out of this world fantastic!
Service is nice, but slowwww.
Our drinks took forever & we ordered 3 rounds. The drinks took at minimum 15 minutes per order.
We’re definitely going back, regardless.

Tasty adaptations of Chinese food. Comfortable vibe. It was my husband's birthday and staff all wished him a happy bday. Very nice touch as most places forget those little touches. They also sent out scoop of ice cream for his day too.

Interesting, delicious food. Attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Original decor and cool buzz. Only surprise was that the food can be salty depending on what you order. Still delish, but drink lots of water which they are prompt in refilling for your table. Overall 5 out of 5.

If you're bringing friends who want authentic Chinese food - this is not the place to come. Go to chinatown instead. Noodle dishes were too salty although texture of the noodles were good. Xiao Long Baos were flat and tasteless. Spicy sichuan chicken was not spicy enough. If you don't care for authentic Chinese cuisine, this place is fine, but those with a higher standard for authentic Chinese cooking will leave disappointed.

We had a perfect experience at Duck Duck Goat. The food was beautiful and delicious, the service was friendly and accommodating. Every bite was yummy. The house tea is not to be missed. We left feeling full and euphoric. Highly recommend.

Went for Dim Sum on Sunday afternoon & enjoyed the whole experience. A great modern take on traditional Dim Sum. Service was great and food was paced perfectly so we were never crowded with food. Highly recommend for a different take on Chinese
