Ambiance is great. Portion sizes are much larger than the server explained, causing us to order too much food. Typically this would be fine, but the food was mediocre at best.

The food and service here was incredible! We had a party of 4 for dinner and had a wonderful experience. Not only did the food surpass all of our expectations, our server was polite, fun and had great recommendations. I will go back as often as I can.

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.

My wife and I have dined at Duck Duck Goat a few times. We are out of towners so when we have time, this is the place we try to get to. Everything is always amazing. It starts with servers, the individuals that are so busy running from table to table always make you feel like you are their only table. They are awesome! The food, phenomenal! Between my wife and I, we split 3 small plates and 1 entree. The spare rib potstickers are so good we ordered another serving. I'm not a, correction, wasn't a seafood fan but the seafood fried is so dang good as well. Those two dishes are mandatory when we go. Everything else we have had has been delicious as well. It is a great experience. Go.

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.

Every time I go to Duck Duck Goat it’s a great time. I’m sad and happy I don’t live in the city because I would be there all the time for the veggie fried rice! It’s always a go to with a great selection of seasonal veggies. There’s never a bad choice made.

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.
