Pig cheek, goat dumplings were amazing. Peking duck cooked to perfection, skin was crisp but light, not chewy. Sides for the duck were delicious. Only 4 pancakes came with duck initially, however we requested additional and these were brought promptly. Mango dessert was refreshing, interesting combination of flavors

Everything from the soundtrack to the dessert was absolutely on point. We had the Duck Hearts, the Duck and goat spring rolls, the Octopus salad, the green beans, the Pork Belly, the Duck fried rice, and the Coconut Cloud. Do yourself a favor and go to Duck Duck Goat.

Food was ok but I expected better. I was charged for a dessert without requesting one since it was my dates birthday, which struck me as odd.

We came for a birthday dinner and absolutely loved the food! The goat slap noodles were a hit and our server was kind enough to treat us to a free birthday ice cream. The only thing to note is the tables are very close together and the environment is so loud, you’re more likely to hear the conversations next to you than your own.

Food was, as advertised, reasonably authentic; in fact, more authentic than most fusion restaurants. Will be back to explore the menu further, and to try dim sum. All in all, great find!

Wasn’t my favorite. The goat plate had good flavor but not into chewy meat. Would definitely try a different plate going forward.

Very possible we got the wrong things. Most other reviews are great and we loved Girl and the Goat. We started with the beef wonton soup which was so salty it was hard to finish. We then moved on to the spicy chicken with tasted like any fried chicken you'd find at a Buffalo Wild Wings. We finished with braised beef noodles. That was the best of the three but nothing special or interesting.

We enjoyed our meal. Very good traditional Chinese dishes with a twist. Probably won’t eat here again as it was a little difficult to get to from the northern suburbs. I don’t enjoy using chopsticks so it would have been nice to have been offered western utensils rather than trying to catch the attention of a server to ask.

Service is very friendly and FAST. Food is outstanding, but not interplanetary. Yes, it's a lot of fresh and very unique Chinese dishes--and extremely difficult to choose 3-6 dishes, so another visit will be in the works very soon. Server Katie was luminous and as friendly as I've ever met. The place obviously can be loud, but when you have a packed house, that's bound to happen!

Standouts (besides Katie):
Octopus/Peanut/Cuke salad
Peking Duck (which they only serve twice an hour, so make a reservation at 5pm and tell your server immediately)
Beef slap noodles
heavenly citrus cake dessert with coconut foam

There is a takeout window, which I'm assuming gets a TON of action.

Overall, this spot is a 100% must try if you can sneak a table.

Had dinner here on a Sunday. Table was ready, service was great. The food was good but somehow didn't click for me. Nothing wrong with it, and the combinations/presentations were interesting, but the flavors just weren't my thing. Maybe I just don't like goat :-). Definitely different from most casual Chinese food, which is not a bad thing.

The peanut and shrimp dumplings were very good as were the scallion pancakes. Everything is designed to be shared family style and they have a gluten-free menu. The decor was warm and inviting with Asian flair. We very much enjoyed the Chongqing Chicken with the spice and grilled shishito peppers. It definitely needed some white rice to tame the heat. The black bean and garlic green beans is a classic executed with the addition of fried shallots and cashews. Would go back for the food, but the tables are close and the noise level is loud.

Stopped in after a day in the city For lunch. Food was outstanding but service was lackluster. I had to go to the bar myself to get drinks since I never saw our server. My issue wouldn’t be this way at 7:30 on a weekend but not 4:45 on a Sunday. Food was incredible and definitely worth it but it felt that my server rides the coat tails of an incredible culinary experience.

The best meal we had during a weekend trip to Chicago - all of the dim sum choices we made were delicious, and it was great how the server staggered the dishes' arrival based on spiciness/flavor so that they didn't overpower each other. Will definitely come back again!

AMAZING food! Everything was excellent! Crab Rangoon is a must! Flakey dough and the filling was fresh crab meat. The pineapple sauce was out of this world!
