Duck Duck Goat
What Insiders Are Saying
Duck Duck Goat is a high-end Chinese restaurants that's always fun with excellent and interesting food.
Great food, very helpful staff, great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
The food was simply incredible. Service was fantastic.
We loved the food. Everything was excellent! The flavors from each dish was perfect. We had their dumplings to start, shrimp and also the short rib with bone marrow. Exceptional. The Dan Dan noodles were just the perfect blend of flavors. Black bean green beans, perfection. Tofu and pork was spicy, delectable. Sweet and sour chicken, crispy and full of flavor. Can’t wait to return.
Entire experience was excellent: Knowledgeable server, prompt service, and outstanding food.
Items of note
- Short rib pot stickers. The seasoning in the filling was much more creative and savory than the usual everyday pot stickers.
- Duck spring rolls with grilled pineapple sweet and sour sauce. Tastes even better than it sounds.
- Beef slap noodles. Outstanding balance of rich and savory with a little spicy kick at the end.
- Duck fried rice. Easily one of the top five fried rice creations I have ever tasted.
Very impressive selection of Asian beers that went great with our meal. We were pressed to get to the Blackhawks game, but once we ordered the food came quickly.
Reservations highly recommended.
We loved our food and our experience. We went in for an anniversary celebration and our waiter surprised us with champagne!
Amazing service and delicious food! My party was running super late and they were very accommodating to us. I’ve been a few times - but this time stood out especially because of the exceptional service (from the hostesses to the bartender). Highly recommend!
Fabulous creative cuisine. Helpful staff. Love the decor.
Food was good but $90/person is a bit steep for equivalent quality you could get in Chinatown for 1/3 the price.
Service was excellent.
No substitutions but then they ask about allergies. Silly. The chicken dish I ordered was absolutely doused in cayenne pepper, then peppers were added. The chicken was so deep fried that it was so crusty you could barely chew it. Anyone heard of moderation? If you don't eat pork this is the WRONG place to go.
Really terrific food. We had a variety of starters and main courses. Those recommended by our server were all excellent -- green beans, slap noodles, a meat filled potsticker and the grilled shrimp and wontons. The mango cloud dessert was also light and delicious. Excellent service! Fun atmosphere and decor.
I had a great time at Duck Duck Goat. The dinner consisted of four of us and we chose seven diverse dishes, but none of them disappointed. The atmosphere was also lively and memorable.
The air conditioning was broken when we went. The seating is tight, and they really pack people in. It was _miserable_. Food was very heavy/rich, and the combination of eating heavy food while sweating in a tight space surrounded by lots of folks was no good. Won’t be going back.
Authentic and inspiring food. Great atmosphere with reasonable prices. Excellent service as well! Highly recommend...
We had an early booking as this place gets busy! Staff great, really friendly and helpful and allergy aware. Food amazing! The only reason I marked them 4/5 on the overall score is that the food came out way too fast and we felt a little like they were trying to get us out so someone else could have our table.
The service here was horrible. We, and every other table around us, did not get items that we ordered. Our waitress very unprofessionally blamed it on the kitchen and really wasn't apologetic about it at all. And she completely disappeared for the second part of our meal. The food is interesting, but the bad service is just embarrassing. They have also crammed a lot of tables into the space making it feel very cramped. And at our table, I had to sit on a short stool - literally - with no back. Was not comfortable at all.
We love Duck Duck Goat! The food is always amazing and the servers are super friendly and love talking about the food.
Great food and the waiter was very helpful with suggestions. Will definitely be back.
Wow!!!!!!! Every dish was amazing! Our server recommended and couldn't have been better!!! Best Chinese food out there!! A new favorite for us!!!
Great food fun atmosphere
We did not like the food that much
I liked the service and atmosphere at this restaurant. I ordered seafood fried rice and it was good. However, there was a piece of mussel shell in the rice and my boyfriend almost hurt his tooth because the shell was so thick. We got another dish of the same order, but I think they should be more careful.
The food is outstanding!! Very creative. Service is excellent.
Food was very tasty. Waitress very knowledgeable about the menu and we enjoyed almost everything that she recommended.
Really enjoyed my experience at Duck Duck Goat. Loved the Xinjiang to start the evening - never thought of fernet and rye, but may have to try playing with this at home. Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) were excellent, especially with vinegar-infused soy sauce. Slap noodles were amazing too, as was the pork belly. Presentation of everything was stunning and well executed. Overall an amazing experience.
The staff went out of their way to make our night special - we were originally sat in a crowded section, and without prompting, the staff asked if we'd like to move to a less crowded area that had a great view out onto Fulton Market, which we found very thoughtful. Also got complimentary sides and deserts. It was my date's birthday, and we both loved everything about the night. Can't wait to go back, and will definitely recommend.
It was our second time at Duck Duck Goat and we loved it both times. Amazing food, great atmosphere, great service.
This place had been on my radar for quite some time. My only regret is I waited so long to go. The food was phenomenal as were the drinks.
I met two old friends for dinner. The dishes were very tasty and diverse. The drinks were great and we didn't feel rushed. Had a great time
Everything was great. Food was really good. Enjoyed the ambiance. Service was on point. I will be back.
An amazing meal, so imaginative! Each course was unique, the eggplant with goat was worth the visit! We shared 4 plates, a perfect amount for 2 people. The Sichuan chicken with chilis was so authentic with the just right amount of heat. We really look forward to a return visit!
We love Duck Duck Goat. I brought a friend from London for Sunday brunch and he was totally impressed. He is recommending friends coming from England to definitely go there.
The char sui bao and wood fired ribs are a must. The cucumbers are a great side and so are the scallion pan cakes!
We had a wonderful experience at Duck Duck Goat with our party of 6 people. The decor of the restaurant is 1940's faux-Asian so it's very colorful and slightly silly. Our server was so helpful with suggestions on how much to order as the food is served family style. We had a big lazy susan in the center of our table and everyone had a bit of the many (but not too many) dishes. Our hands down favorite was the Peking duck and the flash fried green beans (a side dish). We had a vegetarian at the table and our server went out of her way to be helpful in recommending vegetarian dishes. There is a separate vegetarian menu. We started with cocktails and they were tasty and strong, just what we wanted. All in all this restaurant is charming with a friendly staff and perfectly cooked and seasoned Asian food. A great highlight to our trip to Chicago.
Loved the food and the ambiance! Staff was amazing too. We will be back.
La cena buuuuueeeenisimaa. Nos encanto el lugar.
Very busy and popular Chinese offshoot of girl and the goat. Were 10 minutes late for reservation...and it was close to an hour before we were seated and order taken. But then food and service was fine. Creative menu. Good for groups and sharing.
Liked the food very much everything we ordered was exceptional
