Duck Duck Goat is a high-end Chinese restaurants that's always fun with excellent and interesting food.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Our server was incredible! She was very kind and brought over small glasses of champagne, free of charge, because she could tell one of our friends was sad and having a bad day. We greatly appreciated the gesture.

Took my boyfriend for a late dinner. Was told we would have to wait a few minutes for our reservation but as soon as we went to the bar the host found us. Service was great, cocktails were tasty and the food was incredible and came out quickly. We’ll definitely be back!

Amazing tasting dishes, but they could use more meat since they're meant to be shared. The only disappointment were deserts. I ordered 2 out of 3 offered. Too sweet, too rich with pepper... Just heavy and oversarurated with peppery herbal tastes after just one bite. Very disappointing dessert

The food was amazing. Unfortunately, the service was not good. It’s not a new a restaurant so I didn’t expect service to be an issue but it was. Maybe there is a lack of communication among staff. Our food came out at all different times, there was only 2 of us. We both ordered an appetizer and an entree. Each time there was at least a 10-15 min wait between each other’s food. So as I was finished with my course she was still waiting for hers. The people next to us had the same issue and decided on sending there food all back after waiting to long. The if the server was a little more attentive or apologetic it wouldn’t have been do bothersome. But I had to waved down another waiter to order my entree BC the waitress never came back, never asked us how our food was, or brought the check. Which we had to ask another waiter for. Very disappointing but the food was still outstanding though.

Based on the prices and recommendations, we had hoped for more. The fermented vegetables were monochromatic, green beans were flavorful but rigorously cooked and the Sichuan Chicken was far too heavily salted and fried. They had a vegan menu which was a plus and the vegetables with mushrooms were the highlight. After voicing unhappiness with the Chicken, our waitress did not become a shrinking violet, she handled it well and never faltered. While it remained on the bill (which was appropriate because I had been warned that it would be "crispy") she sent out 2 nicely prepared desserts. We did not get the annoying visit from a floor manager apologizing so often endured, she handled it professionally on her own. The space was sharply appointed and not as loud as one would expect from a full dining room. The cocktail Mezcal Mai Tai was well balanced and the wine was at the proper temperature. The small list had enough of interest to pair with the food. Overall I would recommend the restaurant with caveats to menu choices based on experiences with non styled versions of asian cooking.

The best Sichuan cuisine in the city. Spectacular from the first course to the last...and the Jian Bing thing was among the best desserts I’ve ever consumed.

Food was phenomenal, a few dishes were a little too salty in my opinion such as the green beans in black bean sauce and the mushy pork. Very good all around though.

The restaurant was SO good. Food was amazing- it is family style so we tried about 8 things and they were all equally amazing- none of our party of 4 could pick a favorite! Our waiter was also amazing- he asked about allergies (which we had) and knew off hand that one of the marinades included one ingredient we may want to be cautions of. Extremely knowledgeable. The service overall was great- never an empty drink or plate!

Very tasty food, but the environment is too loud for good conversation and the price for what you get prevents it from being a go to spot. Also, most items are very heavy and some lighter options would be better

This is my favorite of the "Goat" portfolio - the food was delicious and fun to share/fun to eat, the atmosphere is very congenial. I definitely recommend (and already have). It's definitely on the pricey side for chinese food, but the flavors are special. I will go back!

We were a group and ordered a lot. The food was good, but not great. The best thing was the beef won ton soup. My main criticism is around how heavy all the dishes are. Even the veggie ones are incredibly heavy. Our group felt super sick for the rest of the evening.
