Mediterranean
The Lazy Goat is a Mediterranean-themed restaurant with a menu featuring global influences from Spain, Morocco, Italy, France, Greece, Africa and the Middle East in a relaxed atmosphere where taking the time to "linger and share" is encouraged.

The diverse menu was created to accommodate a variety of diner preferences with meat & cheese plates, small plates to “graze and nibble,” and main dishes.

Guests are invited to take their time while "trying a little bit of this and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like."

    The air conditioning was out ! The restaurant should have sent an email letting us decide whether we wanted to sit in the hot restaurant! The food took a long time over 30 minutes. Red wine was really warm and my pasta portion was small 4 raviolis and add on chicken was gummy and dark?

    The food & service was amazing as usual! The sound is the only issue I ever have here because of the lack of acoustic dampening with the cement floor and flat ceiling.

    We were in Greenville to see Hamilton and wanted a special dinner. The Lazy Goat was perfect! My husband and I shared Brussels sprouts (the best I’ve ever tasted), charcuterie, a falafel bowl and lazy paella. So good! There was a sangria special, so we had that too! Yum! Oh and a chocolate mousse like cake for dessert! Everything was delicious- good amounts of food and perfectly seasoned. We had a perfect view of the river and our waitress was lovely! She gave great recommendations and checked on us regularly. This wasn’t our first visit and won’t be our last!

    Even with Hamilton preforming in town, the service was top notch! The food, where do you begin. A unique menu that burst with flavor, and also cooked to perfection. This is a place that we will visit every time that we are in Greenville form now on.

    This was the second time dining here. The first time our food was fantastic and the flavor was excellent. My wife and I both ordered steak and the wine sauce was excellent. We liked it so well we came back. This time there was no flavor, her steak was over cooked, and the portions were smaller. They handled remaking my wife’s plate very well. My plate came with steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans…I was disappointed that the sauce had no flavor and there were only 4 green beans. Not sure if It was just and off nite but we probably won’t be back due to this and the price you have to pay unfortunately.

    Being that the menu has changed is great news. We have dined at the Lazy goat several times and thought the food was very disappointing in the past. Alex our waiter was happy to help navigate the menu for us and we went with his recommendations that turned out was a fabulous choice. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. Both meals where excellent! It was a lovely evening on the outdoor patio overlooking the river. Having stayed away in the past it’s exciting to return!

    The food was delicious—so many new flavors. I loved the Duck Duck Goat flatbread. The serving sizes were good. We enjoyed two appetizers—fried cheese and Brussels sprouts. They were amazing. It was a delightful experience eating lunch at Lazy Goat.

    last visit. We requested window table on the upper (main) level, as the lower level has tables too close together and is too loud. We arrived to learn that a private party had the upper floor and our table was down stairs. This is the second time this has happened over the past 6 months. Once among our favorites, we will not return. We find it unacceptable that when our request for the upper level cannot to be met, we were not advised.

    The server, Scotland, brought us on a culinary journey of a lifetime. Being a level 1 sommelier, he suggested a great wine to go with our meals. Highly recommend the Lazy Goat when visiting Greenville. Great food and even better service.

    The only thing I can think of we weren’t 100% on was the caprese salad. It’s like it needed some balsamic or something to tie it all together. It was a bit dry. The service, all other food, ambiance, manager, drinks were exceptional. Thank you for a fun time and evening.

    The 2 person table is very small! They had other 4 person empty tables with a nice view but they did not seat us there! Food and Drinks are a little pricey! I think over priced by About 20% , especially on their wine selection! Over all good experience and enjoyed the evening dinner!
