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.
Excellent food- try the new baobing window on the side for some ice cream!
Really fun place, great food, and fantastic service. Our waiter was a gem, she was super helpful and great to interact with.
If you want authentic Chinese food, go to an authentic Chinese restaurant. Girl and The Goat is still Stephanie Izard’s best restaurant. The food was salty and just only OK. The room is very loud and even with a round table a conversation was difficult.
One of our favorite restaurants, never disappoints! Loved our visit- love everything from the drinks to the duck fried rice and soup dumplings!
Usually very hard to get a reservation but totally worth it. The choices are all so flavorful and innovative. This makes it very fun. Everyone in our group enjoyed sharing the dishes we ordered.
Great service and creative menu that was fun for a girls night with friends. Definitely recommend!
Bo was our server and he was great! Food was delicious. They have a separate vegetarian menu. Most of what is on it is vegan as well. Ask for it you care.
Food was excellent but I was shocked at the poor service. We received a call to confirm our reservation and they asked if there was anything special bringing us in... I mentioned it was a birthday ... she said we do a dessert for the bday person...and nothing was followed through. Also we requested utensils which we waited about 1/2 hour for and it took a very long time for someone to come take our order. Seemed like 3:30 is shift changing time so definitely didn’t get a positive service experience but the food was dynamite!
Really enjoyed our first trip to Duck Duck Goat. All around AMAZING!
Great dim sum with tons of good options. Not the most veggie-friendly, but there were several dishes we could choose from. Drinks were good too. Server was fantastic.
Second time here and it did not disappoint. Great food and service! Will be back. The beef and broccoli was fantastic, well beyond what I was expecting.

Believe me, you can get better food in Chinatown.
I am someone who enjoys traditional Chinese food and this food was clearly made by someone who is not well-versed in traditional Chinese food.
Good food (awesome cocktails) but the portions were a bit small for the price. I wouldn't come here all the time or I'd go broke.
Husband and I had a 5pm reservation and the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation without shouting. A plus! Our server, Jane, was attentive, helpful and friendly. Every dish was excellent and included something unexpected & imaginative. If we lived in Chicago, we'd dine here frequently. We had Xiao Long Bao, Glass Noodles, Soft Shell Crab & Pekan Cauliflower. Left full and happy.
We had a fun, delicious birthday celebrration
Very good Chinese food for an American Chinese restaurant. Not as good as Din Tai Fung, but has good soups and Xiaolong Bao. The whole Goat connection is over-done. The goat dishes (slap noodles, e.g) was mediocre and the little bit of goat meat was almost inedible. The Mapo Doufu was too greasy and salty. The fried rice is better than the noodle dishes. I recommend sticking to the soups and Xiaolong Bao. The menu is rather short and has too many high fat/grease items.
The service was amazing. Beau was helpful and polite.
My boyfriend and I were very impressed with everything we ordered.
10/10 would recommend
DELICIOUS, THAT IS ALL!!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Duck Duck Goat was a great group experience. We were a party 6, 2 adults and 4 teenagers. There was something for everyone. The lazy Susan in the middle of the table added to the interactive experience. All the dishes are shareable so we tried a plethora of things. Our favorites were the dark crispy potatoes, chicken wings, and soup dumplings. I look forward to returning because I did not enjoy the glass noodle dish (too smoky for my taste). The chilly chili noodles are in my future order. All of the food was well balanced and executed beautifully.
Service was adequate, but lacked warmth. She did not want to be there, and it showed. The food was edible, but nothing particularly special, exciting, or would warrant a return visit. This is my 3rd visit, and it seems there is a significant decline since opening.
One of my favorite places in Chicago. Loved the hot and sour soup, fried rice and Pekan Chicken and the Mango Coconut Cloud is phenomenal. While better than most places, the Dan dan noodles and the Mu Shu Pork did not live up to the other food.
Explicitly asked for no cilantro on anything. Octopus salad came with...cilantro. Listening is a skill. Recommend the scallion pancakes, green beans, and Peking Duck.
Phenomenal dining experience! Sooo many wonderful shareable dishes. Need to come back with a big group so we can try everything on the menu!
This place is so good! The food, the service, the location, the ambiance... all impeccable! And that Pekan Cauliflower!!!! I could have that every day!
Very impressed! Such a unique mixture of flavors ...loved the corn special and the beef broccoli dish the most as well as the scallion pancakes with mushroom slaw of the six dishes we ordered. A chicken dish left our mouths numb and it was the least favorite and the waitress took it off of our bill without us asking...excellent customer service!
Fabulous dinner in a fun atmosphere. Quiet enough to have a conversation at the table, but definitely lively!! Delicious food. My teens are adventurous eaters and loved it!!
Service was stellar and the food was amazingly decadent. I can't wait to return♡
It was our first time and we fell in love with everything. Excellent service and ambiance. Loved my experience.
Loved the Food and the service. Will go back for sure!
My husband had been wanting to come here for months and I was finally able to make a reservation for his birthday, so there was a lot of anticipation built up before we went. That being said, we were in no way, shape, or form dissappointed. The food was delicious & unique.
Our waiter was knowledgeable & friendly - we appreciated his honest suggestions. We got (4) dishes total and were absolutely stuffed by the end of the meal (& even had a bit leftover). Nonetheless, we took the opportunity to order some more items to-go because it was that good & we didn't know when we'd be back.
The pot stickers & scallion pancakes were by far our two favorites - I'll be heading back ASAP for both of these!
As always the food was delicious and service was wonderful.
Our favorite place. Love the Beef Slap Noodles and Chili Chili Noodles
Great place. Fun decor and delicious food. Great for a friend get together.
Very nice ambiance. Food was very tasty in general with very unique dishes. We ordered a dish that turned out to be very spicy and couldn’t eat. Service was average.
Delicious! Highly recommend the Open Sesame cocktail and beef ragu noodles.
Dim sum was good. But rest of the food was incredibly salty and our group was very disappointed.
My friend is moving back to New York so I wanted to show her one of my favorite Chicago restaurants. We had an incredible time.
Awesome restaurant. Very trendy. Food is outstanding. Daring. Fun. Service is great. Loved the C.R.E.A.M. Follow the recommendations of your server. If you love soft shell crab this is the best you will ever have.
Duck Duck Goat is one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago and it was great to share it with family visiting - they loved it too!
