The food was delicious! We had a window view which made it wonderful. The noise from the loud talking was a bit much. They had problems with the air conditioner which made it warm in the inside. I give The Lazy Goat a 4 due it being warm and loud talking. Will visit again!

We haven’t been out to Lazy Goat for over a year! The menu has changed and my wife and I ordered new entrees. Both (paprika pasta and Mediterranean Chicken) were amazing! Apps were great as usual (Brussels and fries). Desirae was our waitress and she was awesome!

My husband and I dined outside where the atmosphere was soothing and weather was surprisingly perfect!!
We both enjoyed our meals, Mediterranean Chicken for me and Paella for my husband. Daniel, our server was personable as well as efficient! I highly recommend this place to everyone.

Food lives up to previous visits. Noise level, however, much higher. Service was pleasant and comfortable. This place has done a wonderful job with consistency. If there’s a way to lower the noise level, via acoustic treatments, that would be great.

Very noisy indoors, so it isn't a place for a relaxed dinner. Should have sat outside. Nice view of the river available indoors and outdoors. Food was fine, but we were expecting to be impressed based on the number of write-ups and online recommendations we saw ahead of time. Not a bad experience by any means, but we aren't likely to return with so many other options we have yet to try.

All four of us ordered the salmon with lentils. It was so disappointing. The salmon did not have good flavor and the texture was terrible.

I had 4 items - the goat cheese balls, the Brussels sprouts, the lamb shank and the creme brûlée. The goat cheese balls and Brussels sprouts were fabulous. The lamb shank was soupy and hard to eat on the pita slices provided. I personally did not like the taste but my dining companion did. The creme brûlée was expertly made but again, the flavor was not to my liking. It seemed more appropriate to the fall season. The service was excellent and the view is wonderful. I will go back as there are other dishes I want to try.

From entry to exit and everything in between, we had an outstanding experience at The Lazy Goat. The food was so good it became one of the major conversation topics. Our server was patient, helpful, and a delight. The view and ambience, although a bit noisy, was a great complement to the dining experience. Highly recommended.

This is our favorite place so we always celebrate our anniversary here! We love what the lazy goat is all about- the sit and stay and graze experience. We always order one dish at a time, then consider our next dining move. This time we tried the tagliatelle. It was amazing and full of flavor! Thank you!

Food and waiter were excellent. Only issue is that we ordered and shared a number of dishes and you only set a fork & knife with napkin. When sharing it's difficult to get someone attention for simply thing as a spoon.
