We had a pretty good experience here. The drinks from the downstairs bar were fantastic. Not sure the bartenders name but he was so friendly and recommended yummy drinks. We had a table outside and had fair service. The steak was okay, nothing special. The goat cheese bites were scrumptious! Brussels a little dry. Desserts were lovely!

We have eaten at The Lazy Goat many times and went this week for Restaurant Week and a Birthday celebration. The service was just extremely slow and tough to watch all the tables around us (with a different server) get their food in a timely manner. We had much time in between courses, wine, refills, etc. Once our food did finally arrive, it was at room temperature and not warm or hot at all. We told our waiter and while he apologized, nothing was really said or done. Since it was a birthday dinner, I just hated we had this long drawn out experience that distracted from the celebration.

Just not a fan. The food was ok but not a fan. Service was great atmosphere was good the food not so good. I tired this place once before and we’ll thought it would’ve gotten better but no. This is my opinion only. The place has been around so there must be people out there that love it.

Third or 4th visit. Always enjoy LG, but....We waited 10 minutes. Ten full minutes before a host saw and sat us.

Ordered the resturaunt week menu, and our main courses were brought out before we were have way done with our first course. Really? Why is no in monitoring this so courses are delivered at the proper time?

Food was good, but service and staff were very off and I hope LG reads these reviews to they will address these concerns.

We will read current reviews and look for improvement before we book another meal here. Greenville has too many excellent options to settle for less than attentive service.

The food was good but the service was only adequate. Our waiter came by to check on us but got our wines mixed up. Then when we asked him for two bills, he split it down the middle. Luckily I was with my sister so we could work it out ourselves. Otherwise it could have been awkward.

Very good food, nice server, and good service. We had a large table, and it was a little hard to hear. Tends to be a little noisy when there are lots of people there.

Creative dishes, nice wine list, good service, great location and nice ambiance. It was good and we enjoyed it. It was pricey. Would I rave about it? No.... Would I go back? Yes, but would not be a “must do” (I’m a visitor to the area). Would I recommend it? Yes.

This was our second trip to The Lazy Goat and after having an outstanding meal on our first visit we were very disappointed on this occasion. The option of ordering 500ml of wine was, disappointingly, removed from the menu. The Lazy Paella had a lot less seafood and when one of the guests didn’t receive their meal (Lamb Lollypops) the kitchen over cooked them and delivered it to the table when the rest of the guests were ready to leave. I hope the next time will be more like the first visit.

This is a nice looking restaurant to walk into. Once you are seated you will most-likely have a view of the river. We tried the mozzarella balls and shrimp appetizers and then shared the paella for our entree. All were superb. The wine list ha d a nice variety to choose from. Our server, Grant was outstanding and made us feel very welcomed. The food and whole experience was unique and very enjoyable!

Made 2 visits within a week, sampling 5 different dishes along the way. Highest marks to the Buratta, the Duck Con-fit Pizza, and the Brussel Sprouts. Wonderful flavors in the Agnolotti entre, though it's not quite sizeable enough to share between two persons. On each visit the patio was closed due to weather, so the inside dining room was full and, as a result, moderately noisy. Service was excellent on each visit. All dishes were perfectly cooked and attractively presented.

Everyone from the hosts to the server was very friendly and professional. All of our food questions were answered and we got good recommendations from our server. The food arrived at the right times and was well prepared and presented. The food is priced a little high- especially the dessert ($9 for 4 bites of spice cake is absurd) but with the gift card deal I had it was worth it this time.

Several of the menu items I’ve enjoyed in the past were either unavailable or prepared differently. I much prefer the previous incarnation of Even Lazier Paella, and the charcuterie plate with chef selections keeps me from getting the fruit compote-type thing or almonds I look forward to. If the Brussels sprouts or Duck Duck Goat pizza ever leave I might not have reason to return. (You’ve been warned Table 301. ) Otherwise, it was a great experience and my girlfriend and I enjoyed a well-prepared delicious meal in a beautiful setting.

Delicious and innovative food choices, nice drink drink selections, and good service, in addition to a beautiful setting in our downtown Greenville, make this one dining experience where you just can not lose.

The food, as always, was fantastic. The only issue was with the service. The server informed us it would take about 35 minutes for the entree my wife ordered, so we ordered a large appetizer. Unfortunately, the entree arrived BEFORE the appetizer, very quickly, and therefore the majority of our appetizer went to waste.

But the food is fantastic.

Our first time here. The food was very tasty and the service was very good. It has great windows to see outside. One thing I missed were table cloths or something attractive for the table - candle or flower would warm things up. They did use cloth napkins but most restaurants (competition) I'm familiar with at this price point have good linens at dinner. I felt slightly rushed. Next time I will ask the server to hold the entree until we're finished the tapas. Or, the server could ask. I will go again if in the neighborhood.

Food was delicious. Our experience was excellent. My only comment is if you are looking for a filling meal make sure to ask questions. My wife’s meal was large and mine was tiny....so they clearly have both ends of the spectrum

Beautiful venue and excellent service from the host and greet staff.

The service was formal and deliberately paced.

Goat cheese and frites appetizer was very good but thought a better dipping sauce could be offered instead of ketchup.

I had the chicken which had great flavor on the skin but not much flavor in the chicken itself.

My wife had the agnolotti which was mildly flavored.

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.
