Absolutely wonderful restaurant! The food was fantastic and we had a great time. We are already planning our next trip back! The fried goat cheese app is to die for!

Went here for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Really nice setting and didn't realize it would be buffet style. The selection was great and tasted great as well. Slightly disappointed in the desserts, even though the donut peg board wall was clever. Was hoping for something a little more authentice with desserts as well.

Lazy Goat is our favorite place to eat whenever we visit Greenville. Outdoor dining has great river views in a pretty patio setting. We always enjoy the brussel sprouts appetizer.

The food was very bland and a huge disappointment. Our server was very friendly though. It was a nice building and location, however, I can say without a doubt we will not be returning because the food had almost no taste. We ended up eating a few bites of our meals and then opted to go elsewhere for dessert and drinks. There are plenty of other options in the downtown area and I would suggest you try out any of those for a special night out. It is a shame because we were so excited about it.

Great food and good service. Our only complaint -- and it's been the same every time we've gone for the pat 9 years -- is the high level of noise. It is my understanding that management has been aware of this but has chosen to do nothing. Also, we waited a very, very long time for two at our table to get their glasses wine. Finally, in frustration, the waiter went and unearthed a bottle from somewhere. The bartender didn't have the pinot grigio (!) Go figure.

We recently dined at the Lazy Goat. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. I highly recommend a reservation, especially on weekends. There was a private event upstairs, so we were seated downstairs. I do wish their stairs were illuminated better. They are a dark wood color and can be hard to see where the step is, especially for older people. The downstairs was full so it was very noisy. We were seated at a nice table next to the large window. No one acknowledged us for at least 8 minutes, then a manager came over and got water for us. This was unusual but our waitress was busy with a large table nearby. We were not rushed at all throughout the meal. Our food was very good. The noise level did improve as the restaurant started to empty, probably around 9:00 pm.

I brought my family here for Father's Day weekend. The food and atmosphere were top notch. However, we had a waiter who had does not drink alcohol. We felt uncomfortable asking him for suggestions as a result. There also was only one bartender in the whole restaurant even though they were hosting a large party private event. First round of drinks came after the appetizer even though we ordered the appetizer well after the drinks. Outside of that issue, great restaurant!

Worst dining experience I have had in a very long time. Tiny portions for a full size price. Food far too spicy and salty. When I think Mediterranean, I think fresh. This was overcooked and mushy. We had lamb lollipops, scallops and chicken. As a matter of fact, all three of us were sick afterwards and my stomach cramped severely for two days. It became so loud inside we could not hear one another. Would not recommend under any circumstances.

Used to frequent Greenville when friends lived there, but now in Charleston. Spent the weekend there and had a reservation for weeks at your restaurant. When I got there, for a 5pm reservation, was told we can't sit inside with a view, could only sit outside at a hightop...I mentioned we would be here only a short time as an early reservation, and staff/hostess very rude, very short. "Well others have had reservations as well..." yet the entire time no one took these seats. This type of service wouldn't make it in Charleston...there are too many great restaurants. Next time I'll just go to Halls where I know both food and service will be exceptional.

This restaurant never disappoints! We had the special appetizer which was a fried green tomato, with lump crab meat with dill micro greens - absolutely delicious!! The dishes that followed were equally as flavorful: the greek salad, the scallops with beet risotto and the flank steak. Thank you for your dedication to local ingredients.

We are returning customers to this restaurant for years. It was very good again. The only exception this time was that two of the meals on the card were not available. Except of this we had a very nice evening again with the family and for sure we will come back.

Food was awesome. You dont need to go to a steakhouse to get a perfectly cooked piece of cow. It was amazing. My wife had a seafood paella and she loved it. The waitress was amazing and to top it off, we got a free dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary.

Took a very long time to get our meal on Friday night. Food was disappointing, some mussels inedible, sauce too strongly seasoned, paellla mediocre. Nice view from seats by window upstairs, but we probably won’t come back.

Excellent dinner spot prior to attending a concert at the Peace Center. Wonderful service, attention to detail, and the food was delicious! Especially would recommend the goat cheese appetizer, dusted with pistachio and drizzled with honey! Will definitely be back to try other entrees.

We used to come here every month. Food has changed (expected over time) but not in a good way. Things seem greasier and not very appealing anymore. Service was poor and we got an extra order of food since we had to wait so long. Probably won’t be going here again for a while...

The food and ambiance were very good. The waiter was horrible. He never even looked at our table as he was going by, never checked to see if we needed anything more, and kept forgetting to bring drinks we ordered. Finally, my husband had to get up and walk over to a neighboring table to get his attention and ask about a drink that had been ordered about 20 minutes earlier. The drink was cancelled because we had had enough of the bad service and just wanted to get out of the restaurant. We have been to The Lazy Goat before and had a wonderful experience. If this had been our first visit, I doubt we would return.

Our daughter picked this restaurant out. We recently moved here from New Jersey. It was a belated birthday dinner for her. She obviously has good taste in restaurants. We also got to meet the new chef Wilberto and the general manager Andrés. They went above and beyond seating us at a window view table of the Reedy River. Perfect night. Can’t wait to go back

Just Ok. Had heard and read a lot of great reviews and was generally underwhelmed. Service was slow and the food delivery was not well timed (we waited a long time for our appetizers and then got our entrees almost immediately afterward). It wasn’t awful or anything, but I don’t know that we will go back.

The setting is stunning. The hostess was efficient but not smiling nor welcoming. Also in a relatively empty restaurant she chose the least desirable table in the room, near the servers’ area/kitchen entry to seat us. We requested another table which she provided, but with a sour looking expression on her face. The waitress was fine: the food was average to good but not outstanding. Based on other reviews we were disappointed.
