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.

I had a bunch of family in town and took them here- it was a definite crowd pleaser. I could have eaten 100 shrimp and peanut dumplings; they had a perfect thin skin and were crispy on the bottom.We also loved the hot and sour soup, and the beef slap noodle. The mango cloud is a perfect, light, sweet way to finish a delicious meal. The bill for 6 of us was just under $200 for food, but we spent about $80 on cocktails. They were all delicious, but that's definitely where they get you! Enjoyed this place a lot- would come back.

Arrived 10 minutes before our anniversary reservation to an empty restaurant. Checked in with hostess, informed them we had one member that would be arriving 10 minutes late, and was directed to wait at the completely full bar in the middle of the dining room. After standing awkwardly out in the dining room for 15 minutes, surrounded by a sea of empty tables, I went back to the hostess stand to inquire if there was an issue with our table. I was told, quite peevishly, that 'they only sit full parties, and if we wanted to sit we would need to order food IMMEDIATELY or be asked to leave'. Fine, whatever, let your tables sit empty and leave us without drinks. We'll just stand uncomfortably in everyone's way instead. So much better. Our third arrives a couple minutes later and we are seated. Dozens of empty tables throughout the dining room, two calls confirming our reservation and our anniversary and they seat us in a room with a crying infant and where the wait staff has to constantly squeeze behind one of us to the register behind him. We sat 15 minutes before our drink and food order was taken. Drinks and food:

Only memorable cocktail was the Peninsula Sling because it was covered with so many garnishes you couldn't drink it.

Food:

Xiao Long Bao - Good but no different than any other Dim Sum location, other than costing twice as much. Added goat not noticeable.

Wood-Fired Duck Hearts - Tough, bland

Beef Wonton Soup - Soup was very good, wontons were basically empty and tasteless.
Pork Fried Rice - Basic fried rice at an inflated price

Mapo Doufu - Texture was good, no flavor whatsoever which is a running theme here, but very disappointing for this dish as intense flavor is its usual calling card. Also, the waitress said the dish had to be served with white rice, which was an upcharge. Don't make a dish that can't stand on its own without paying for an extra side.

Hongshao Rou- Braised pork belly. Can't mess that up and they didn't.

This was a moderate experience. I’ve been to DDG before and that wat great. This event, something went wrong here, at least with my party of 4.
Waited an 1 hour for a table, outside in the sewer air, asked to go in, No snack or nibble was possible.
After 2 hours we got the first dish; tripe & pig ears salad, Okay that is a matter of taste...
Rest of the food was lovely, however, very very salty.

I think Murphy’s Law here, the bill went wrong by a miscalculation. And yesterday 2 of my friends found out the money was 2 times, the other 3 times deducted!

I love events, please make sure you are prepared well next time!!

Second time dining here and enjoyed it just as much if not more! The gluten free options are limited compared to the full offering, but they are still creative and tasty and I didn't feel at all like I was missing out. Plus some really interesting cocktails.

I dined at the bar and the bar tender was fabulous. The music was upbeat and the restaurant itself is incredibly trendy. The short rib bone-marrow potstickers did not disappoint! The scallion pancakes were also great! I often recommended DDG to clients looking to dine in Chicago, and now I am able to speak to the experience. It was great.

Had an amazing experience; Duck Duck Goat never fails to disappoint. The server gave great recommendations on amount of apps vs. main dishes, including balance of noodles vs. meat-based. The Beef Slap Noodles were a fav as always, and the Wood-Fired Duck Hearts were mouth-watering.

This is another knock-out from Stephanie Izzard. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Duck Duck Goat, but that is not to say that it is not pretty stellar on its own. Every dish we had was quite enjoyable with the exception of a tofu/pork dish that used soft tofu and was something of a gelatinous mess. The sweet/sour chicken and chicken wings were truly exceptional. They recommended ordering 2-3 dishes per person but we wound up ordering about 1.5 dishes per person and were still quite full. I would go easy unless you can really pack the food away.

Everything at Duck Duck Goat was superb, from the service to the presentation and flavor of the dishes. We tried about seven dishes off the Dim Sum Sunday brunch menu and each exceeded our expectations. We especially loved the Taiwanese Fried Chicken, the Pig Face Buns, the Char Siu Bao and the Xi'an Crispy Potatoes.

Loved the decor and we were seated right away. Not many options for children however my oldest daughter had the ribs and they were amazing! My youngest daughter refused to even taste anything so we took her for a burger afterwards. We also tried the whole branzino, steamed BBQ buns, goat noodles, and seafood fried rice. My two favorite dishes were the ribs and goat noodles. My only real complaint is that for $12 a glass, the wine should at least be a full 5 oz and mine was more like 3 oz.

Took my boss. We're both female. I'd been here before. She didn't like it. She wanted to know why everything was so sweet. She particularly hated the two things she picked-the egg foo young and the duck pot stickers. I paid cause I was mortified and I picked it.
