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!

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.

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."

We were so lucky to grab a reservation last minute, and were seated right after we grabbed a drink at the bar. The food is family style, which was an awesome way to try a bunch. Everything we had was spectacular! For three of us, we did 4 shareables, one side of green beans, veggie fried rice, and a chicken main dish, and we had leftovers. Good portions on everything. Service was wonderful. The outside of the building looked like nothing special, but the inside was a very cool vibe. Overall, great experience!

We were disappointed with all the hype we expected better.
Although the food was fresh it was way too salty! Almost inedible in fact. The Taiwanese fried chicken was dry and over cooked, the wonton soup was beyond salty and over seasoned, fried rice with duck egg was ok but nothing special same for the potstickers. Definitely not going back here!
