My favorite restaurant in Greenville. Had another superb, creative meal on the patio outside, and were treated to wonderful music from an outdoor concert across the river at the Peace center. What a wonderful Sunday evening!
The chef at Lazy Goat never fails to amaze me with his delicious creations. We both had NC trout with artichokes, olives and squash served over a delicious smoked tomato sauce. WOW!
Wonderful place! Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere. We sat out on the patio and it was lovely. Our server was Henley and she was terrific !
Loved the whole experience. Would highly recommend to anyone
Great food, not great service - went before the dinner rush started and still took over 2 hours to get in and out
Beautiful place and great food
Great service and great food! Can't wait to go back again.
It was absolutely great! Everything!
Very nice restaurant, food was great, really awesome views of downtown!
My son was in town and picked this restaurant at random. Turned out to be a wonderful experience. Food and service were excellent.
Phenomenal as always! We love the fried goat cheese. Service is excellent
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!
Great food, service, and overall experience. Nice setting, and view of the Ready River was excellent as well.
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!
We enjoy the restaurant. Great view of the river, good mix of different types of food to share at the table. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Will be back.
food and service were both very, very good. slight issue with flies and noseeums on patio but overall really, really , good!
Amazing experience, I would definitely recommend to a friend
Anniversary dinner. Great place! Highly recommend.
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.
Great location and view of the River. Really enjoyed the small bites and pasta options.
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.
Our waitress was wonderful, answered all out questions and spoke with the chef about our food allergies. The chef made her meal as requested and it was outstanding! They made out whole evening outstanding!
Impeccable friendly service and a great menu including vegetarian options.
Excellent service and food. Wonderful, light sauce on the ravioli and fish cooked to perfection. A great place for catching up with friends
Great place to get some great quality food. Handmade pasta and the fried goat cheese were both awesome. Highly recommend for a special occasion, date and really anytime to have great food!!!
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.
Lovely view of river with great ambience. Menu is interesting and different from the standard restaurants. Everything we had was great. Servers were attentive and professional.
Excellent service and location. Meal was hit and miss.
Salt on top of chorizo??? Way too salty to eat.
Waitress was friendly and attentive.
Great meal with wonderful service. The only down side was a noisy table next to us.
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.
The view was spectacular
I loved the starters and the salads the most
Had the lazy paella and the ribs
Lots of food…very tasty
Best dining experience i have had in Greenville since i moved to SC in 2018
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!
Beautiful spot, yummy food
Server was great! Food was really good. Location amazing!
Prices I thought were high for what we ordered.
Great dinner!!! The brussel sprouts were outstanding and so was the smoked paprika tagliatelle! Highly recommend!!
On vacation, perfect place for our first meal in Greenville!
We ate outside which is our usual. LG has the best outdoor venue in downtown Greenville. Food, service, everything top notch. Our favorite downtown restaurant.
Great food, atmosphere, and service!
