The food was good, and very cool decor. Not-so-hidden gem. We had to wait 30 min to be seated for our 7:00 reservation. I thought this Opentable VIP designation made me special. I guess i'm a normal pleb.

The food is outstanding. We started with the Char siu bao (barbecue balls) and those are spectacular! My husband had the Hongshao Rou and that was delicious, and I had the Dan dan noodles, which were also very good. Drinks were also good, service was good and the place is nice. Great place!

I came here on a date with my boyfriend for a late seating and we were absolutely blown away by everything about the experience. First of all, we loved the atmosphere with the low lighting, eclectic decorations and how it felt personal and romantic but lively at the same time. Secondly the food was INCREDIBLE - my boyfriend and I both agreed that it was the best all around meal we have every had. We ordered a starter and two mains which would have been more than enough, but our waiter even brought our complimentary duck/goat dumplings and even sugar cookies for dessert which was so generous and unexpected. Our server was so personable but left us to enjoy our meal, all the while still being very attentive. I will definitely be coming here again and letting anyone who know visiting Chicago to have a meal here!

Very unique and energetic restaurant. Food was very good. We had an early reservation, but food was still arriving to the table in a haphazard manner - last dish took forever to arrive at the table. They also seem a bit disorganized with how they greet and seat those with reservations. Service was OK.

This is not our first time at Duck Duck Goat, and we love it. The experience was a little off this last time. We ordered 4 dishes, and the first 3 came out at nearly the same time. However, the green beans came out nearly 25 minutes after the rest of the food to the point that we thought they were forgotten. It was a very long dinner - we were there almost an hour and 45 minutes for 4 dishes and two drinks each. We opted for a dessert, the sesame donuts, and while we are usually open minded for creative desserts this one really was disappointing. We will be back as we love the food and typically the experience, but this one was a little different than what we have come to expect with Duck Duck Goat.

Service and ambience were top notch! Good portions were hit or miss with quantity and some of the dishes lacked a kick. I feel that could be fixed by providing some spicy sauces with the noddles or at the table. Thanks!

The restaurant has gone downhill since it’s inception.

I was disappointed to see the side room closed which previously offered bar service.

Waiter was MIA, did not properly take order. Did not inform us to reserve the duck or that the duck was out by the end of the night. Given the wrong food.

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.

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.
