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."

    Outdoor patio was delightful. Service was fast & food was super delicious. We enjoyed several homemade pasta dishes & steak. Highly recommend. Very accommodating as we desired an earlier dinner hour from the one originally booked. Nice wine selection. Located right on the Reedy River with a lovely view.

    We shared appetizers which were very good. Service was very good. My only complaint was desserts were limited & no after dinner wines or port. One restaurant we ate at in Greenville had a lot of after dinner wines, even paired ones w the desserts. Another restaurant had numerous after dinner wines.

    Our server Lena made our experience at The Lazy Goat. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She recommended the fried goat cheese and Brussels sprouts, both were amazing! We had out of town family with us. The host was kind enough to notice our brother had mobility problems and took us to our table the back way to avoid stairs. The view of the Reedy River is spectacular. I highly recommend The Lazy Goat. We will definitely be back!

    Really appreciated the valet parking on a blustery, raining evening. Service was great as was the cocktail, wine, and food. One of our favorites in downtown Greenville; we'll keep coming back.

    The appetizers and main dish were outstanding, and the drinks were good. However, neither my friend nor I enjoyed the dessert, and the previously attentive waiter either didn’t notice or didn’t care … we finally had to flag him down to get our checks, which he presented to my friend as a single check that we had to figure out how to split. It’s not a big deal in the long run, and I’ll definitely go back for the fried goat cheese!

    We enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Lazy Goat, the vib electric, the food was amazing and the service impeccable. It was our anniversary and were treated to a glass of champagne and dessert. It was the best restaurant experience we’ve had in a very long time. We look forward dinner again there in the future.

    One of the best meals my wife and I have had in quite a while. Our server Daniel was attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. My wife had the Moroccan champagne cocktail that was exquisite. Fried goat cheese balls, Burrata, duck confit, and the ravioli were our selections that we shared. Incredible flavors and textures. Definitely will be returning to try out more of this wonderful menu.

    Hubby and I have been once before and were excited to come back. We were not disappointed! It was a bit loud but at 9pm on a Friday I could not expect it to be quiet. The drinks were a bit slow to arrive - but with a full house including a wedding rehearsal dinner going on that’s also not a surprise. And they were worth it when we got them! The food came much quicker and was amazing. Not too much to eat, and the flavors were phenomenal. We even left with a slice of maybe the best pie I’ve ever tasted. We always talk about how much we liked it our first time and now our second visit just adds to our enjoyment. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville!!

    We had heard good things about Lazy Goat and we’re a little disappointed. Maybe we went on a bad night. Service was slow, my meal (paella) was bland, and we ordered a salad to split and got Brussels sprouts instead.

    Zaheda was our very knowledgeable server. She offered her favorite suggestions which we took her up on and there was no disappointment. The Brussel spouts fried goat cheese and the Zarzuela were our choices. She had the sommelier come out and offer suggestions based on our dinner choices. He suggested the Nortico which we got a bottle of and it was the perfect pairing for appetizers and our Zarzuela. The atmosphere was very private and quiet. We sat on the patio near the water fall. There were no mosquitoes or flies to bother us. It was a very enjoyable experience and we would for sure return.
