We enjoyed our dinner at Duck Duck Goat. The dishes are inventive, well prepared and delivered quickly.We had: Shrimp and Peanut Dumplings, JIAOZI
Beef short rib and bone marrow potstickers, Moo Shu Pork and the soft shell crab special. All was delicious with our favorites being the shrimp dumplings and the crab which had great flavors and textures in the dish. The only drawback was the hoisin that came with the moo shu. It was too salty and added too much saltiness to a dish that was already well seasoned. More acid and a bit more sweetness and less salt would have been a better balance. All in all a really fun place to have dinner.

On the menu, they write “reasonably authentic Chinese cuisine.” At least they’re self-aware. I was overall happy with the food I got at Duck Duck Goat, but it is hard to swallow the price of the dishes when I have gotten such great food in Chinatown for a half/a third of the price. We got the Peking duck, which came with so little cucumber it was laughable. I would have rather had more cucumber and green onion than the assortment of things they gave us to add. I appreciated the novelty of the Western twist they put on it, but I’m going to go with more traditional presentations of Peking duck from now on. The food was good overall, it’s just that this Chinese person would only come here if someone else was paying.

We waited at bar while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, the bartender was friendly and helpful. They had Oberon beer which is one of my favorite.
Our waiter was informative when we asked about lower sodium dishes, which items could be adjusted and which came as is. The beef wonton soup was delicious and there was enough for 2-3 people. The pot stickers also very tasty. I had the slap noodles which were good also. Our daughter like the glass noodles. Both entrees were large enough to share. The cold octopus salad was refreshing and the veggies in it were crisp. Absolutely loved the desert, spring cake on a coconut cloud with chopped tropical fruits. We were full and agreed to share the desert amongst the 3 of us and left us wanting more!

Hot & Sour Eggdrop was unique and quite good. Fried Rice was not what we expected but also good. Had the eggplant, moo shu, cauliflower as well - all were good & the cauliflower was excellent. Wine was reasonably priced (for a restaurant). We had a reservation so didn't have to wait - without it, you were looking at 3 hours.

Duck duck goat came highly recommended and exceeded our expectations. The ambiance was fun and energizing. We enjoyed sharing the strawberry special, soup dumplings, seafood fried rice, and the amazing cumin noodles with goat! We highly suggest ALL of those. All in all everything was spiced deliciously and were perfect portions. The cocktails also were boozy and fabulous. We wish we lived here or we'd be there regularly!! Thank you for the birthday surprise too :)

The restaurant is very neat and decorated exceptionally well. We went for the fixed menu which was a really good deal for 2 people and provided plenty to eat. Most of the dishes are on the smaller side except the rice.

Overall, really enjoyed the food and service was good. Would definitely come back in the future.

I was overall disappointed with the food. The price was too expensive for the quantity and quality of the food. The goat belly lo mein was salty. The beef wonton soup had a sour taste. The shrimp toast, char siu bao, carb rangoon, scallion pancakes, and veggie spring roll tasted like food from any chinese take-out in your neighborhood.

If a chef can't get good flavor, just add salt and more salt and more salt! Food was way too salty. It wasn't spice, it was salt and MSG. Absolutely nothing special about the overpriced food. Waitress was not at all helpful with the menu, and service was poor.

The day was a bday / friends get together. There was a 2.50 charge for a small scoop of ice cream w sprinkles for a birthday celebration. we did not ask for this, and a charge was put on the bill, this should be brought to our attention.
I thought for a classy place this was tacky! Ms. Stephanie you might want to look into this? 🍦
Not sure if i’ll be returning?

Duck Duck Goat is such a fun experience located in the booming Fulton Market area. A play on Chinese dim sum for the appetizers and great entrees. We were girl crushing on Stephanie Izardm hoping she would emerge from the kitchen. The decor is fun and the playlist adds to the atmosphere. Definitely recommend!
