The food was excellent and full of flavor. The lamb chop lollipops were very good, as was the chicken. I gave it a 4 though because the portions were a little small. The restaurant is open and full of light, but the high ceilings create a lot of noise. It was very difficult to hear our waiter at times. Service was good, and we were not rushed to leave at all. I would recommend this for a special occasion. Ask for a window table.

Worst experience ever. First we walk in and no one even says hello. So we say we have reservations at 8 (10 mins early) and we are taken to our table. The place is only half full at this point. We are sat directly in front of a large pillar that blocked our view. I asked the waitress if we could move to the table next to us with a better view (2 choices within her section). She goes and asks the hostess and I am told I cannot move because someone else made a reservation with a request to sit with a window view... So I cannot sit their because I didnt ASK for a good seat?? Worst of all, NO ONE EVER CAME! So I sat there staring at an empty table with a nice view the entire time. The waitress was hit and miss. Mostly miss. Very pushy and rushed at first, then basically never came after the food. Had to go to the bar to request to pay my bill... I had the seafood paella and my wife had scallops with "beet risotto". Turns out that was just diced beets, no rice.. The paella was ok but all the shellfish on top were burnt to a crisp. No manager came to check on us. Will NEVER return.

Great food and service! Only disappointment was in the pitcher of sangria we ordered. We get it every time we dine there and it is usually filled with fruit. This time it had just a few scant blueberries in it. Otherwise everything else was great!

The Lazy Goat offers a variety of interesting small plates and starters and entrées for sharing. The hummus, sizzling shrimp, and olives were excellent starters. The Moroccan lamb and scallop entrée were both very good. For dessert, the Panacotta was excellent but the chocolate bread pudding was a bit dry. The service was excellent and they offered us complementary Prosecco for our anniversary as well. Overall a very pleasant dining experience. A lovely view of the Reedy River .

I didn't realize Lazy Goat was a Table 301 restaurant until I had to pay for my bread; what's up with Soby? Jiannas - pay for your bread; Lazy Goat - pay for your bread. Bread is the Staple of Life; you don't pay for it in a good restaurant. Bad form! But otherwise a very wonderful place and experience.

Visiting Greenville, went with my wife and daughter. Sat outside until it started to rain. Meal and pitcher of sangria was very very good!

I would go back again! Loved the Brussels sprouts, fried goat cheese, steak, scallops and paella! Desserts were yummy too!

The lazy goat has very good food but the problem is consistency. They change things without warning. Their waiters give out different information. This was my third time there and I’ve gotten the same thing and it always tastes different. Give it a try for yourself to see but don’t expect much.

We’ve been dining at Lazy Goat for years, it was one of our “ go to” places when people come to town to visit. We had not been in awhile, and were extremely disappointed this time. The salad came after the entree. The salad was very overdressed, the vinaigrette being so acidic I couldn’t eat it. We always order the Paella, this time it came out on a hot serving plate that unfortunately kept cooking the rice until it was crispy and inedible. The shrimp had no seasoning on them at all, the the dish lacked the overall flavor that it used to have. I left feeling completely unsatisfied and am not sure I will return.

Very disappointed in the noise level, cement floor and very fatty lamb. I love lamb lollipops but no one took the time to remove fat and gristle. Flavor of eggplant was good but over all noise and decor was not inviting.

I ordered the Paella and there we hard pieces through out the bowl, presumably broke shells but none of the shells were cracked. The mussels were boiled for so long that the meat had evaporated. Very little sea food and mostly chicken. The taste was poor and the meal was barely eatable. My wife ordered the Paella with chicken only and it was also sub par in taste but at least it didn't have inedible pieces strewed about, like mine.

I have ordered Paella's from many, many restaurants and this was by far the worst I have ever had.

We also ordered Sangria, my wife red and mine was white? This too was terrible! Most sangria's that I have had had some form of fruit in the glass and a sweet taste. These tasted more like dry wine with no sweetness what so ever, except when we got to the very bottom of the glass. Tasted more like someone dropped a sugar cube into the bottom of the glass.

Had high expectations for the Lazy Goat, as I went their for my birthday meal. I was surprised how poor the food was and felt that I could have done better at Burger King!

Never again!

Went here for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Really nice setting and didn't realize it would be buffet style. The selection was great and tasted great as well. Slightly disappointed in the desserts, even though the donut peg board wall was clever. Was hoping for something a little more authentice with desserts as well.

The food was very bland and a huge disappointment. Our server was very friendly though. It was a nice building and location, however, I can say without a doubt we will not be returning because the food had almost no taste. We ended up eating a few bites of our meals and then opted to go elsewhere for dessert and drinks. There are plenty of other options in the downtown area and I would suggest you try out any of those for a special night out. It is a shame because we were so excited about it.

Great food and good service. Our only complaint -- and it's been the same every time we've gone for the pat 9 years -- is the high level of noise. It is my understanding that management has been aware of this but has chosen to do nothing. Also, we waited a very, very long time for two at our table to get their glasses wine. Finally, in frustration, the waiter went and unearthed a bottle from somewhere. The bartender didn't have the pinot grigio (!) Go figure.
