Duck Duck Goat is a high-end Chinese restaurants that's always fun with excellent and interesting food.
Jerome was a great server!
Amazing! Imaginative food that was delicious, an engaging mixologist at the bar, and fantastic service- Indra was awesome!
We had the Bao, wonton soup, beef slap noodles, and pekan chicken. All were great especially the wonton soup and the beef slap noodles! Cocktails were spot on also. The inside decor was was pretty cool. Thanks.
Wonderful and innovative food, well thought out and engaging design/atmosphere, kind and knowledgeable service. A little skimpy on the proteins but loved it anyway. Would highly recommend.
The service was beyond great. One in our party had a gluten allergy and each staff member who served us were constantly conscious to mention if the dish was gluten free or not. It just made the dining experience effortless and without question nor having to wait to see if she could or couldn’t eat what was just served. The food was of some of the best Asian meals I’ve ever had. I got to explore dishes I’ve had before, but with an unexpected and pleasant twist. t’s a great break from all the deep dish pizza we were trying because this food is surprisingly light. Definitely a must try.
Everything I put in my mouth was completely delicious! Charming decor. Not cheap, but totally worth it.
Everything we ate was delicious! The food came out fast.
Great spot to bring out of town friends! I highly recommend the Pecan Chicken! The staff is very friendly and was accommodating to my food allergy. I will definitely be back!
The staff is great- very friendly and professional. It was our anniversary and we were greeted at our table with two glasses of sparkling wine. The server gave us his recommendations on what to order and we went with it. The duck and goat spring rolls were fantastic and the ribs were really fantastic. I would recommend more of the sauce on the ribs- it was soooo good. We then ordered the Seafood Fried Rice and a spicy chicken dish. Both were good, but the salt content was really hard to get through. My husband LOVES salt and even he was a little turned off by how salty both dishes were.
Again, the service was awesome. The dining rooms are just beautiful. Bathrooms clean and really cute. Not sure if I would go back, but I would definitely recommend that people try it for themselves.
Another excellent lunch at DDG. Everything was fantastic! We will see you 5/12!
Great place!! Loved it!! Great vibe and character. Will definitely come back!
always a great experience! our waiter had awesome recs for a vegetarian, gluten allergic and meat eating guests
Great food, great service! Thank you 😊
Food was overrated and server tried to hurry us
Exceeded expectations set by the high bar of being a Chef Izard production. Not everyone could have pulled this off, but she did and exceptionally well.
Very pleased will go back
Had to wait one hour even after booking the time
Tara and the team at Duck Duck Goat were fantastic! They were attentive and made sure that our meal was perfect! We will definitely be coming back!
Fantastic food and ambiance.
The service here was fantastic and the food was delicious. We will definitely visit here again next time we are in Chicago.
If you like Chinese food with a twist, this place is for you. However, Chinatown restaurants are better and more reasonable. It was a one and done experience for me. Girl & the Goat is awesome. This is just ok.
We went at10pm and the place was hopping!!
Hot and sour soup and Duck fried rice were the tops!
Excellent service from Sarah!!
Everything was excellent!
Michelena(sure I have murdered that spelling) was
All around fabulous representative of the "goat" restaurants
Everything was awesome very vibrant place had to wait a little but once we got seated everything was beyond good from the food to the waitstaff stiff drinks and great food!
Food and service were amazing. Only down was we were seated near door and it was cold! Poor entry area design
Our second trip to Duck Duck Goat. Last time we did not have the Peking Duck and regretted it. This time we ordered it and were very happy we did. Fantastic food and we love the energy of the restaurant. Great cocktails as well. We will go back again for sure!
Great from start to finish
Another concept restaurant from Stephanie Izard of Girl and a Goat. The decor, the ambiance, the wait staff, all not surprisingly one of a kind and exceptional - Izard runs a great restaurant - with much detail. Duck Duck Goat left me fascinated with Izard's interpretation of Chinese food. But, is it a value? After spending $350 tip included, for a family of 5 (2 adults and 2 teenagers, 1 10 year old), I'm not entirely convinced. Off the top of my head, there are other Chinese restaurants that can offer equivalently more satisfying taste and value experience, for example, Yu's Mandarin or Ming Hin. Duck Duck Goat takes on the popularity of Girl and a Goat, and expands on Stepanie Izard's imagination and success, but for me, that's about it. Her take on Chinese was interesting and extraordinary, to say the least. The half shell oysters were superb -practically melts in my mouth, succulent, sweet, comforting. Izard's unique ability to marry unexpected ingredients in harmony is super inventive. The stand out dish, broccoli beef is a favorite. Other than those 2 presentation, my party of 5 tried 5 or so other dishes in addition to desserts, in which I honestly don't recall after a week, (fried rice, squid salad, etc.) as I finally found time to write this review in response to a nagging email from Open Table for me to do so. Bottom line, it's a novelty restaurant that will be none-the-less successful and one of Chicago's must visit places I imagine as popular and as hip it may be, but as a local resident, it difficult to imagine myself going there regularly. It's a hype restaurant that will deliver a uniquely Chicago experience, but Ming Hin or Yu's Mandarin I would return over and over again during the year, much more accessible. Duck Duck Goat, go there for the unique Izard experience, you won't go wrong, but it will not comfort me on a regular the way other much more accessible restaurants would.
Excellent food and not your traditional American version of Chinese dim sum. Creative, delicious dishes.
We had a great meal with 6 friends. Everyone was able to pick a few shared dishes and they were served as ready but nicely spaced out. We didn't feel rushed and our server was helpful with suggestions and provided a shellfish free menu.
My only complaint was the service. I mentioned when I made the reservation that it was my husband's birthday and I noted it again when we arrived at the restaurant. I was hoping there would be a little cupcake or something at the end of the meal with a candle. But there was no acknowledgement at all about this special occasion. It was an important birthday for my husband: 65 so it was very disappointing.
Went to DDG with kids when visiting Chicago from NY for vaca. Wonderful neighborhood, atmosphere, service level and such delicious food. My son is vegan and this is sometimes a challenge, however DDG has some outstanding items on the menu that are already vegan without modification like the Green Beans with Cashews. My daughter and I had the Beef Wonton Soup and it is off the charts. Noodles dishes are all so good too. The kitchen brought us a complimentary noodle dish with goat and veggies which was so tasty. Drinks are great, there was one with mezcal and pineapple juice with a charcoal salt-rimmed glass that is not to be missed (of course, if you like mezcal.) Easy to over-order here because of all the tasty choices, so keep that in mind. Enjoy!
Amazing! A great dining experience.
We had reserved a table for 9pm. We were asked to wait for half hour to get the table. Food and ambience is good.
Beef wonton soup is a bowl of Taiwanese happiness.. traditional flavor and spot on presentation. Best of Taiwan without being in Taiwan.
Great atmosphere, food and service. The server KC walked us through the ordering. Definitely a repeat restaurant. Reservation a must.
Remarkably inventive food based upon mostly Chinese cuisine. The decor is pleasant but as with many new places a bit noisy. The wait staff very energetic and helpful. Dishes are meant to be shared as most are generous and you would like to sample as many of the delicious choices as possible. However, if you have normal appetites following the waiters suggestions might cause you to over order.
