One dish was better than the next! Our waiter flawlessly guided us to what we ordered and he did not steer us wrong. Delish! Hats off to our waiter “Dan the Man” and the kitchen. Can’t wait to go back.

Excellent food and cocktails. Service was fantastic and friendly. Only downside was having to wait 15 minutes past our reservation for our table to be ready, but that was a minor inconvenience and the food and overall experience was well worth the wait.

excellent dinner. We celebrated our daughter's 17th birthday and we all enjoyed the experience. We were sat at a round table which was perfect for our party of 6. Service was just right and food was excellent.

Everything was great, but definitely high priced. General statement about value here. My wife and I are both vegan and ordered several vegan items. It always surprises me how a restaurant charges $18 dollars for cauliflower. Was it tasty, yes, but it’s also a quarter or a cauliflower head with nuts and glaze. Same goes for other items.

That said, I would absolutely recommend Duck Duck Goat, but will also share my opinion on pricing.

Can’t tell you about the food, because we waited at our table like ghosts. We arrived at 5:30 and left at 7:30 WITHOUT eating! Service was non existent! Almost laughable how poor the service was. On our way out the door, our food was arriving, but we choose to go home and eat! Terrible service. When we were seated we were one of 4 tables, so no excuse for the poor service.

My partner was in town on business and had the majority of his $100 per diem still available when we went. We ordered five plates - soup dumplings, green beans, goat belly noodles, duck fried rice, and some pork main. All were fantastic. Service was great and addressed my partner's food allergy appropriately (lactose sensitive). She was great in pointing out what menu items were lactose free, could be modified, and what could not be modified. I will admit it was a little loud, but we did have a later reservation.

Great evening meal! The shrimp special and goat slap noodles were perfect. Winter citrus salad was especially refreshing. If I could only go to one restaurant in Chicago, this is it! The entire staff is knowledgeable and can maneuver you through any dietary restrictions. There is no more perfect dinner.

I was disappointed. I’ve had better Chinese food in Chinatown for much less. Such poor quality food shouldn’t cost this much.

I love everything at Duck Duck Goat. Everytime I go there, the food is outstanding, the service is superb and the drink are phenomenal. Always consistently delivering a great dining experience. When I have people from outside the country, I bring them here and always very satisfying. Love, love, love! Good job!

Excellent execution of the genre. And, ou can really order much less than you think as the portions are generous and filling. Very tasty selection of non alcoholic, refreshing drinks.

Excellent food and service. Wonderful flavor combinations to everything we tried.

The only thing that we didn't love was being packed right next to another couple since there were only 2 of us. The restaurant had just opened and wasn't full by the time we left. I know this is common when its busy, but it would go a long way to making people feel comfortable to just put them at every other table until you fill up. We were the only 2 couples in the room until the end of our meal and it felt very awkward.

We look forward to coming back to try more dim sum options.

NYE fixed menu. I was sooo full at the end and I didn’t even eat the last 3 dishes. The food was really good and the atmosphere was great.

Spent new years at Duck Duck. The food was delicious as expected, but felt rushed. Having booked a 9pm reservation, we confirmed we could stay until midnight, but all food was on the table by 10. The evening could have been a little more special with a cocktail more atmosphere

New Year’s Eve Prefix menu was average, food was extremely rushed out of the kitchen. Overall, very mediocre experience. I expected it to be so much better. I understand it was NYE but PF Chang’s would have been every bit as good. I don’t understand how all the 5 star reviews. Maybe it’s a better experience on a regular night.
