Description: 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 and 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 that and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like".

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I was pleasantly surprised by Greenville's dining scene and by this good choice. The aesthetics of the restaurant were a delight to the eyes as the plates were a treat for the palate. We sampled a few small plates and found their offerings quite good. I had a meat and cheese plate followed by crispy brussel sprouts. The servings were appropriate to the price. The two complaints I would have is that while I made a reservation, when we got there we could not be seated outside in a more pleasant setting as, I was told, "those seats were reserved". Not sure how one does that, but it was my impression that I had done that. All evening, there were seats available as we sat in doors. While the inside is pleasant and full of glass to see outside, the glass and steel interior creates a din of noise. I repeatedly had to ask by friend to repeat himself. The room needs some sound dampening features.

“Nice view while dining on good food”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had lunch here with our friends and enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. We enjoyed looking at the view on the river. Everyone enjoyed his/her choices from the menu and it was hard to make a decision from all of the delicious options.

“Big view and small plates”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Great view of the Wyche Pavilion across the Reedy River and the TD Ampitheatre through floor to ceiling windows. Good for people watching overlooking the Swamp Rabbit trail that runs through the heart of Greenville. Perfect casual but vibrant atmosphere to go with a group of close friends and carry on a conversation. You can talk at a comfortable level The food was great. Our table had the crispy Brussel sprouts, the beet salad, fried goat cheese, a couple of their pizzas and the red wine sangria. No complaints. All was great as was the service. One small thing. No espresso drinks for after dinner? Would expect a Mediterranean restaurant to have this for some reason.

“WOW”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ate a late lunch here outside over looking the river. The food was unbelievable and full of flavor. Split a delicious feta, spinach and artichoke dip, the Mediterranean chicken salad was the best I've ever had and the fish of the day was spectacular. Can't wait to go back for dinner! Food, service, and location all superb.

“Great Small Plates To Share”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I love this restaurant because it's a great place to go with a friend and share selections from their Small Plates Menu. This way you can get a great variety of flavors and tastes and you don't have to eat a lot. My friend and I didn't have a reservation on a busy Friday night but we were still able to eat at the downstairs bar. We received excellent service and great tips on dishes and wines to go with them! I highly recommend The Lazy Goat!
