This was a perfect place for our anniversary. They put us at a table with a view, and everyone told us Happy Anniversary simply because we included that we were coming for our anniversary on the reservation.

The food was OUTSTANDING. We will definitely be back.

The problem was that the server and manger could not figure out how to honor my OpenTable reward card. That's a problem!
The food was good and the view is always great.

Much to loud, difficult to communicate. Excellent, knowledgeable server. Should there be some sort of minimum dress code for a restaurant of this stature? Baseball caps, shower shoes and tee shirts did not really fit the occasion.

Food was good, however I was somewhat disappointed with my trout dinner.Didn't realize it came with a tomato-based sauce. 1 small fillet for $27.00 is too much.Everything else was very good.

We have been saying for a long time that we need to experience the dining at the Lazy Goat. Our only regret is that we waited so long. Everything was great from the menu selection, the staff, and the food. We are already planning for another visit soon.

We were first seated in the dining room but switched to the outdoor patio. We had the same excellent waitress. The food was very tasty although a bit pricey. Overall a good afternoon. We were able to sit and talk and catch up and the waitress was very accommodating.

What a treasure! Great interesting food. Fantastic attentive and helpful service. Fun location. I never take home left overs but just had too! Have been in internet all day trying to figure out how to replicate the spring onion cream sauce!

The food and atmosphere were amazing. It was very loud so it was difficult to communicate with the waiter who had the mask. The only negative was the coffee which was so bad we had one sip and never took another. My wife and I love coffee and were amazed how bad it was. We mentioned it to the server who said it was freshly brewed from a local supplier. WE did not ask to remove it from bill but were a little surprised it remained in the total. Not worth complaining over $5 and the rest the meal was fantastic. Would never order coffee again however.

I ordered the filet mignon. My partner ordered pasta. My filet mignon was cold and the smallest I have ever had and I have eaten all over the world. Not a good restaurant to order steak I guess. Not a good value for what it is.

We came here for an early birthday celebration and ate upstairs inside and got the family dinner deal and everything was outstanding. The fried goat cheese balls were frickin amazing along with the chicken with white bean salad. The mezze plate was refreshing with the cucumber & tomato salad/dill dip. The brussel sprouts were SO good as well. The service was great, everything came out in a timely manner and none of the food overlapped. The sorbet and donuts for dessert were a good pairing and delicious as well. Highly recommend.

My husband and I tried The Lazy Goat based on a friends suggestion. We were so happy we tried it. We sat outside and enjoyed a quiet relaxing dinner. The waitress did a great job, food was wonderful as well as the ambience overlooking Reedy Falls, prices were reasonable, I can go on and on. Even the GM came over to check on us so we had a nice conversation with him. We definitely would go again on our next visit.

Service was good. Paella (which we have had several times in the past) was very salty and overcooked. Definitely not worth the $25+ price.
