The drinks where water down and the waiter forgot to bring my friends entree. She was the only one at the table without food. The view was beautiful but not good service or food.

The fried goat cheese balls and pomme frites are the best appetizers. I had the Mediterranean fried chicken which was amazing!! My spouse had the Osso Buca. He loved it. Sides were delish and our service was great! Very attentive and the food was delivered in good time.

The food and service were excellent! As the evening wore on it got noisier and noisier. For a person with hearing loss, this was difficult. However, I loved the place and in the future will ask for a corner table.

The portions were way to small for what they charged. We ordered a four course meal and an additional entree to share and afterwards we went somewhere else to eat after spending $165

I ordered a paella and it was too salty and I told the server and he just ignored...my girlfriend ordered the duck goat cheese pizza and it was good. For appetizers we had the dipping trio and the Brussels sprouts (phenomenal).

Lazy Goat strengths are appetizer / small plates and an accessible and brief wine list, with very solid Spanish options. Tasty charcuterie and fried goat cheese. Less strong entrees - fried chicken and pasta were a step down from the appetizer quality. Service was a little distracting - our server was "trying on" a British accent that came and went, depending on when he was concentrating on it, and that was a skitch weird. The team did a nice job handling Valentine's weekend full bookings, though, and our food came out promptly.

Disabled and had to go through parking garage to get to elevator, then had to walk through kitchen to get to dining area. Food was obviously left over from previous day. Not fresh and luke warm. Two tables two servers and long wait for service. Server rounded his change up then took an extra dollar from my change prior to me tipping. I counted it three times to be sure because he had handed me a crumpled up wad of money for my change. Then ran off and did not return. 😢

Food was of poor quality. Paella was overcooked and very pasty, quite inedible.
Obvious the product was determined by price not by quality when purchased. Very disappointed in the meal.
The service was quite different...extraordinary service by our server. Friendly, attentive and of great spirit. Enjoyed her very much.

Great food and atmosphere. The only thing that was slightly off was that there was no music or background noise which I tend to like at most restaurants. Doesn’t need to be anything loud but something to enhance the atmosphere.

Ambience and service were wonderful. Everything on the menu looked so delicious it was hard to choose! My husband and I got all three pasta dishes and shared them. Each provided their own unique flavor and experience - and every one of them was absolutely to die for. I also tried their Mediterranean Mule, which was very good. Will definitely go back again.
