Overall, it was good. I first experienced DDG when it opened. This was my second visit. So, happy to learn the cuisine is consistently good. I was disappointed the casual cocktail lounge in the back is now a dining room, however. I do understand it had to go due to the popularity of the restaurant. Sad that it’s gone, though. It was a great intimate space to grab a drink before dinner. Keep up the good work. I’ll be back. Cheers.

An entree came out before appetizers. And then it all descended upon us at once. Not a leisurely experience, but rather a frenzy and felt so hurried. We left saying "that was supposed to be our date night but it was over as soon as it started."

A family favorite for dim sum. We got one new item that was not to our liking, and the server noticed even though we hadn’t complained. The manager came over, asked us if we wanted something else and then removed the charge from our bill. Really attentive service- always a fun place!

Food and atmosphere were amazing. Our table was ready when we got there. The food came out quickly, almost too quickly. That is actually the only complaint, because we asked the server to time our food out, but we got almost everything at once. Overall it was a great experience though. The music was also awesome. We will defiently be returning. Iron Chef Izard did it again!

We had reservations booked for over 1 month, and waited 30 minutes after arriving on time to not get a table or even be recognized as waiting for our table. We left. Disappointing.

I was really looking forward to this reservation, but ultimately left underwhelmed. The food was OK. As a party of 6 we ordered ~6 dishes to share and nothing really stood out. The szechuan eggplant was probably my favorite. I feel like I've gotten more flavor in dishes from Lao Sze Chuan. Maybe NYC's Flushing restaurants have spoiled me. For me there was nothing much to see here.

Dim Sum was delicious and made my palate jump with joy, but I wouldn't say this is authentic. The ambiance was lovely and the waitstaff was kind. My only thing is that I felt Dim Sum was super expensive. For a party of two and no alcohol involved it was a total of $85. I've never spent that much on lunch for chinese food. I'd skip the lunch, which only offers limited menu anyway, and head straight to dinner instead.

I was so excited to try this place, and was severely disappointed. Our server was awful. He maybe said three words to us the entire time, never refilled our drinks and had our order wrong. The food itself was somewhat bland and unexciting. Overall, a huge disappointment.

The food was incredible! Our waitress was able to guide some of our choices and worked with a mushroom allergy -- pointing out which items wouldn't be appropriate and confirming when she wasn't sure on one dish. We were able to find more than plenty of things to eat!

The bartenders were great while we waited a few minutes for our tables. We'd absolutely go back!

Great food, beautiful decor! We were celebrating our 6 month anniversary and they gave us free glasses of champagne, which was lovely. The beef slap noodles and the green beans were my favorite dishes, and the cocktail menu is great too. This is my favorite Stephanie Izzard restaurant.

Loved the vegan/vegetarian menu! It was small but enjoyed all of my choices. My date even preferred my vegan plate over hers. I got the glass noodles, mushroom dumplings, and as a side the green beans in black bean sauce (which seriously the best). Definitely going back!

There is little actual protein in a couple of dishes, but overall the food is good quality and tasty. One example is the duck belly lo mein, which was more greasy that anything else. The potstickers are great, but most of the rest of the dim sum style food is nothing to really write home about. I will, however, likely request your pistachio cocktail Jade Gate, on my deathbed.

Absolutely fantastic. Food is spectacular, try to request the Peaking Duck; they only do serve limited amounts though. They say it's small plates, however like most West Loop restaurants, they do bring out quite large portions. A fun decor and energetic vibe as well, we'll definitely be back. Thank you!

This was my third time at the restaurant. The food is excellent, and once you are seated the service is on average very good. However, I had an 8:00 pm reservation, checked in at 7:50, and was not seated until 8:30. I specified that I was there for an important business dinner, and still I was seated at 8:30. There was no apology either. I understand it is not necessarily up to the restaurant when people get up, but there should be certain consideration to people who are relying on a reservation and seated significantly later than the reservation.

Absolutely wonderful experience at Duck Duck Goat! The service & food were amazing.

I cannot wait to come back! My favorites were the duck fried rice, scallion pancakes, & soup dumplings, but judging from the dishes we ordered, I don't think you can go wrong!

We had Crab Rangoons, Beef Wonton Soup, Silver Needle Noodles, Pekan Chicken, and a 49 Days Cocktail.

The cocktail was interesting and herbacious. It reminded me a bit of a Mojito, though I'm not really sure why.

The crab Rangoons were not typical, having more of a crispy pie-crusty kind of feel to them, rather than the more regular wonton skins. They were Okay, but nothing exceptional.

The soup was the best thing we had there. It's reminiscent of a hot and sour, but has a lot of other flavors mixed in. Wonderful balance of flavors. Really terrific! Five stars for this one.

The Silver Needle Noodles were great as well. An interesting, unique, and flavorful mixture of tastes & textures.

The Pekan Chicken is a more traditional sweet & sour offering, but very well put together. It had a bit of a smoky flavor that I noticed in the restaurant, but not later when I reheated it the next night at home. I think I actually liked it better reheated, but it was interesting and good both ways.

One note: You do have to order rice as a side, rather than getting it with your dish. That seems a little silly, especially at $2 an order, since raw rice is close to free in this quantity. OTOH, maybe it's just a fancy restaurant thing...

I have to comment favorably on the service as well. It's always nice when your server notices your drink is getting low, and offers to bring you another.

We went primarily for the privilege of experiencing Iron Chef Izard's food, and I'm glad to say that she didn't disappoint. (If you're reading this, Chef Izard, I hope you accept the minor criticism, in the spirit in which it's offered. I really did enjoy my dining experience, and I was fascinated to watch you win Iron Chef last summer on TV.)

Went to Duck Duck Goat for my dad birthday and had a great time. We went on Sunday for brunch and enjoyed their dim sum menu. The food was delicious and always came out hot. They spaced out the dishes perfectly and the flavors of each dish were unique and tasty.
