The Infatuation
8.2

Duck Duck Goat is a high-end Chinese restaurants that's always fun with excellent and interesting food.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Took the only three person reservation available, which was 3:15. Ordered from the dim sum menu- all selections were delectable. The chilly chili noodles, scallion pancakes and sesame sundae were out of town awesome. And the glass noodles. And the mushroom dumplings. May be full for days...

Such a great meal with friends. Our favorites were the Dan Dan Noodles and the pork dumplings but everything was delicious. The drink menu is very nice as well and the service was quick, friendly and very helpful in providing recommendations!

We were the first reservation with 4:30pm on a Friday so I can't speak to atmosphere but every item ordered tasted great and I highly reco the "Kissed by a Rose" cocktail.

My girlfriend and I had a reservation at Duck Duck Goat, which we were a tad late to, but the staff was very understanding, welcoming, and accommodating. The dining experience was a fun twist on a familiar cuisine. The food was out of this world. Can’t wait to visit again!

This was our 2nd Valentine's dinner with Duck Duck Goat. We absolutely love the duck hearts, must have. Our table was ready as soon as we got there, the food was amazing, and the service was equally as great! We will be back next year for our Valentine's Day tradition, if not sooner.

Per usual with any Stephanie Izard restaurant our experience was perfect from start to finish. When dining here you CANNOT leave without ordering her goat slap noodles, her green beans and for dessert...her heavenly mango coconut cloud...it is the most divine thing I have ever eaten. We are very excited to return and try more of her exciting menu.

Service was excellent, our server was Michelene. , I had two kids (6,10) with me and they were so nice. We go out a ton and sometimes are frowned upon due to the kids. Everything we had was delicious. I can’t wait to come back and enjoy more food. Highly recommend for anyone, dates, friends and family get togethers.

It was Restaurant Week and was excited about the $24 brunch. I had been to DDG previously and loved it. This experience was frustrating in that four of our savories arrived within a min or two of one another with the fifth right behind. We had a table full of food that we watched get cold. Felt like they wanted us out of there fifteen minutes before we sat down. Not at all the experience I was looking for.

This was our 2nd time at Duck Duck Goat, and once again we were extremely pleased with Stephanie Izard's foray into Chinese food with a twist only she can provide. We happened to go this time during Restaurant week in Chicago and were very pleased with the selections on the limited Price Fix menu. We will be back

We arrived two minutes early for our reservation and had to wait.....exactly two minutes. Duck Duck Goat has their scheduling down perfectly.
Our server was upfront about portion size and it ended up being an excellent suggestion, lest we over-order. There was just enough so that everyone left full and content.
The atmosphere is hip but warm. A great showy place for out of town guests.
The menu is compact but very diverse. A lot of variety without being a small booklet.
Best of all, Duck Duck Goat gives you 'best of Chicago' cuisine without the price. Reasonable item prices and quite average drink prices for downtown Chicago.

Still a special destination.

I thought it was ok but unfortunately didn’t meet the hype. I was a bit disappointed that we were extremely early for our reservation and even when tables opened up and there was no one being seated they still made us wait for our reservation time. We had to ask them if we could be seated.

We tried Duck Duck Goat on the last day of restaurant week. We had a reservation 30min before closing and we’re one of the last tables to leave, but didn’t feel rushed or unwelcome at all. The food was good and we loved the atmosphere.

Dined here during Restaurant Week. This being our first visit, we went with the Restaurant Week menu. We weren't really thrilled with the menu. Selections were not much different from other Asian restaurants we've been to. It is basically Cantonese cooking with an additional flair of spices. Since we came from the northern suburbs I wouldn't necessarily return when we can get the same food at restaurants closer to us.

First time at Duck Duck Goat. The seating & space was very cramped. The fried rice & overall flavor of the food was excellent. But the portions we're VERY small. Only one bite of each offering on the restaurant week menu. Cocktails were creative and delicious. I would come back for a light bite & a drink but not a full meal.

As always, everything was great. We love Chef Izards restaurants and frequent Girl and the Goat as often as we can. Of course we jumped at the opportunity to dine at DDG for RW. Unlike other restaurants, your servers embraced the idea of restaurant week and actually suggested it as opposed to treating it like an annoyance. Our server was fantastic and friendly as can be. She gave suggestions on drinks and served her whole section with pride. Will definitely be back.
