The Lazy Goat Ratings and Reviews
We've never had BAD food at Lazy Goat. The food is always good. We don't go often. It's loud, and service is never great--just mediocre. It's usually long enough between visits to forget about the noise and lack of service. The food is what draws us to our,biannual meal at Lazy Goat.
This was my 3rd time at the Lazy Goat. A bit disappointed with the food and service this time. The service was slow for the basics; drinks, refills, and to place the order. The Brussels Sprouts were a bit over seasoned and the grits were cold. Overall good food, but not as good as in the past.
This was the opposite of our first experience. If you go please request seating on the floor below the entrance. The ambience far exceeds the main floor. The main floor feels like an abandoned office building. No one came to the table for 15 minutes until finally the manager came over and took our order. The spicy hummus appetizer came quickly but was fairly bland. Not as good as the first time we had it. The entree came 20 minutes later and the Mediterranean chicken was so dry my wife could not eat it. At least they did comp that entree. The paella was mushy as the rice was over done. Very disappointing.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary on New Years Eve. We were seated right away at a beautiful table near the window overlooking the river! Our waitress was amazing and right on top of our needs. Food was amazing! Love the meat and cheese platters that they can custom make to your liking! To top it all off at the end we had the Honey Rosemary cheesecake; OMG so delicious! We will definitely be back for our anniversary again. Thank you Lazy Goat for a wonderful romantic evening!
My wife and I really enjoy the Table 301 restaurants and dine with them often. We went to Lazy Goat on New Year's Eve for an early dinner. I used Open Table and I got the feeling that the restaurant was going to be busy given the limited selections I had. On the contrary, the restaurant was almost empty. Our menu was limited to the lunch selections of various sandwiches rather than the full menu. It was our fault for not asking beforehand because we were looking forward to the small plates for dinner. My feedback is the lunch menu is fairly expensive for the selections. I spent as much on lunch as I have for dinner and I had a broader menu and purchased more food. I will certainly return to the Lazy Goat and the other Table 301 restaurants but I will not go back to Lazy Goat for the lunch menu as it stands.
The Lazy Goat is our new favorite in downtown Greenville. Delicious food (four different entrees at our table, and all were wonderful), great service, pretty view of the river and the Peace Center, and nice options for wine by the glass as well as by the bottle. The French presse coffee was delicious. We'll be back.
Lazy Goat served as a get together for friends. We enjoyed appetizers, entrees, and a couple desserts. The waiter was efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. We tried the fried goat cheese and the Moroccan Lamb as appetizers. Of the two, the lamb was my favorite. Many entrees were tried but the steak and the tenderloin seemed to be the favorites of the table. Everything was cooked to order and the presentation was spot on. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone that was looking for something a little out of the ordinary but wants a quality meal. Lazy Goat fits the bill and we will be back.
The menu contained choices that accommodated my preference for meat dishes as well as my friend's desire for vegetarian. We both had the baby lettuces, but we could have shared one. She ordered a tomato mozzarello pizza and I ordered the pork tenderloin. We shared an apple cake for dessert. The food was very good and the service was attentive. The wine list was extensive and the prices were reasonable.
Location and ambiance was very nice. Service was good. There was a large party on the upper floor so the food may have suffered. Side dishes were well flavored. NY strip had so many tendons in it, I could only eat 1/2 of it. Not 100% sure if the grouper was actually grouper.
Incredibly good service.
The table before us was slow to leave (we were party of 7) and the hostess arranged for free drinks. When it became apparent that the wait was to exceed 20 minutes, they provided free appetizers.
Staff is outstanding and so is the food.
Not the first time I have been there when they have gone out of the way to provide a wonderful experience.
We went at 9 right when they were closing. Manager assured us when we came there would be no issues with ordering and the kitchen would remain open. They also gave us our first round of drinks on the house since it was our first time. Our server was great. He was very personable and attentive, and we both had a great time with him. We even stayed well past closing because he kept assuring we were fine and even engaging in constant conversation. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back.
The food is always great at the Lazy Goat. The service outstanding as well. They have a comprehensive wine list and a lot of interesting options on the menu. I always enjoy the housemade pickles to go with a cheese plate to start. This time, we split the special- salmon with parmesan risotto - and of course, the Brussels sprouts.
Unfortunately Lazy Goat seems inconsistent. I have dined there several times and each time I come away with a different opinion. This time I left disappointed in our ability to have a conversation because of the noise level. I understand it was a busy holiday night and my request for a side table could not be honored. But seated in the middle of the room at Lazy Goat is an impossibility for a hearing impaired customer. And thats where I ended up. A conversation with my friend who was visiting me for the first time in 4vyears from VT was more than challenging
The service offered by our server was alright. But she did assume we understood the Lazy Goat dining rxperience. I had to explain it to my friend visiting from VT. And unfortunately the food was off. The lamb, which I went for, was disappointing. It was a bit dry and the yogurt topping portion was ridiculously small. I assumed chiabatta would be served with it. But no. It was good that I ordered that beforehand. My husband’s pizza was the best part of the evening. It was a winner.
My conclusion is: Lazy Goat has a difficult time handling a large crowd evening. And second don’t expect your special request to be honored. If you are hearing challenged go elsewhere. This restaurant is just too noisy to ensure enjoyment of dining.
However, I had previously reviewed this restaurant where our whole family enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner saying the noise level added to the festivities. It was fine sitting by the wall and with 2 rather noisy children present at our table we were not concerned we would disturb others. So it could work out well for you depending on your circumstances and luck with tabke seating. In the warmer months outdoor seating could solve this.
But in the future I probably will elect to go elsewhere just to eliminate the inconsistency found here.
I ordered a steak dish and it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. I'm also a celiac and the server was very helpful. She too was a celiac (in addition to many other restrictions) and she had a lot of help to give. There's not a ton available on the menu that is GF, but what I did order was wonderful, and I was able to adjust it to meet my specific needs.
