A word from Deuxave
Co-Owners Brian Piccini and Executive Chef Christopher Coombs are proud of their award winning Restaurant & Bar, Deuxave in the Back Bay. The inspiration behind the restaurant’s American Nouveau Cuisine is seasonality, with a focus on working with the finest farms and purveyors, sourcing out the freshest, local ingredients and amplifying their magnificence. The cuisine is strongly rooted in the nouvelle techniques of contemporary French cuisine, married with the splendor of American ingredients in a refined, but casual setting. Deuxave’s (pronounced doo-ave) name plays homage to its location at the corners of Commonwealth Ave and Massachusetts Ave.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I remain thoroughly impressed with Deuxave. The food and the service are always great. And it's one of my favorite rooms in Boston. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Great food, super-friendly and knowledgeable staff, and an excellent atmosphere. We always have a terrific time. The staff is a nice mix of attentive and discreet, so you're always taken care of but they never "hover." The food is top-notch - if it's your first time, you must try the duck. Highly recommended!"

  • "Totally amazing experience. We had a so nice service, great food, great wine. The best restaurant ever had a dinner. Try the tartare and carpaccio !"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We love to go to Deuxave for special occasions. Consistently excellent--the menu is interesting and creative, yet not way out there. Flavor combinations are remarkable and perfectly balanced. The service is just right--not stuffy or hovering but there when you need them. We are foodies and it is our Boston favorite. Thank you!"

  • "Went to Deuxave last night for drinks and appetizers. I didn't realize that this was a Christopher Coombs place, and it really does meet those standards. The service was excellent. The waitress definitely knew wine, which was very nice. The food was amazing and the bubbly, which we went for, was outstanding. Ambience was beautiful with large windows overlooking Mass Ave and fireplace, very cozy. Didn't quite know what to expect coming here, but now we can't wait to go back for full dinner, especially when its nice outside so we can sit on the patio overlooking Comm Ave. "

  • "The food was excellent, but when one of our party found a hair in their starter we were told 5 minutes later by the maitre d that on investigation the hair had been cut and they had therefore concluded that it had come from a radish! Waitress did not have much of a sense of humour, verging on the unfriendly."

  • "If you haven't been for a while, I found a few new additions definitely worth trying. Veal, spectacular. "

  • "Kudos to the chefs and staff at Deuxave. The menu is wonderful and the layers of flavor in the food do not disappoint. Service is just right: informed and attentive without being intrusive."

  • "We were a party of three and we all had something different. Every single meal was outstanding. Very unique cocktail list!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. Both the hostess and waitress wished her happy birthday. They also called ahead to ask how to spell her name for the dessert! Food was quite good but pricey."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "A good friend suggested we make reservations at Deuxave when she heard we were to spend the weekend in Boston. Well, we owe her for a wonderful recommendation! We arrived early for our reservation, so sat at the bar for cocktails. The bartender could not have been nicer, and even treated us to a glass of champagne when our table was bit late (about 7 minutes!). The server could not have been friendlier or more prepared to answer our questions. The menu was outstanding! We loved everything - the creativity was superb. What struck us from the beginning - all this in a comfortable, friendly and very professional atmosphere. We will certainly her suggesting our friends dine at Deuxave when in Boston, as will we upon our return. Thank you!"

  • "Best fries ever, but the rest of our very pricey meal simply tried too hard to be "nouvelle" but the flavor pairings were way off base. You can't just pile up lots of flavors and hope they work. Not for 50 bucks a head. No need to return. Desserts looked meh."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Eating at Deuxave was a more than pleasant. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with smiles and immediately led to our secluded eating area. Our waitress was so friendly and engaging, she was very knowledgeable and provided us with excellent recommendations for wine pairing. The restaurant was very elegant and fancy without being pretentious, which we appreciated. It was loud enough to carry on lively conversations but quiet enough to hear our own conversation. The food came out in a timely fashion and the portions were appropriate. No complaints, I definitely would recommend this restaurant to a friend."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This was the first time we had been to Deuxave and I don't think it will be the last. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The food, the service and the overall ambiance of the restaurant were wonderful. I especially liked the fact that because the restaurant is not just one large open space the noise level, even on a busy Friday evening, was moderate which made it easy to carry on conversation. We started with the Beet Salad and the Lobster Gnocchi and for entrees had the Agnolotti and the Crusted Halibut with fresh fiddlehead ferns. Each course was delicious and I would love to know where they get the rolls they serve with dinner because they were excellent too. Deuxave is a great addition to the Boston dining scene."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Highlight of the meal was the foie gras and the beet starters. The creme brulee was authentic. Service was a bit over eager but overall excellent."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Every bite was DELICIOUS just as the waiter said. Drinks and food were all infused very well."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "For a few years we've passed by Deuxave on the way to dine at Clio or other spots, always saying we should stop in. Finally we did. The food was excellent, including a lobster with gnocchi appetizer, a roast halibut and a spiced duck breast. The duck breast was almost too large a portion, but cooked to perfection (medium rare with the right amount of pink to the meat). The cheese platter for dessert was generous and varied; the chocolate souffle was very good, though perhaps cooked just a tad longer than optimal. The wine, a Neal cabernet sauvignon from Howell Mountain, was outstanding. The service was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended."

  • "Everything on the menu sounded good. Each item was just a little different from what you would expect at other restaurants. Everything we ate was spectacular. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu as well as the wine list. We recommend you try this place if you are looking for something a little different."

  • "Looking for a celebratory dinner spot for our family birthday celebration. We wanted great food, service and ambience but had a small hitch…we would be coming directly from Fenway Park and dressed as expected post-baseball. Well, this elegant and creative restaurant made a truly extraordinary effort with our clan. We were tucked away in a semi-private spot so we could visit, dine, enjoy without feeling sheepish about our attire. The food was as creative, elegant, delicious food as we'd hoped. Every dish. Every touch was exactly as described by our friendly-and-knowledgeable waiter. Service was flawless by the entire team and the half of our party who are french citizens, loved every dish from this contemporary franco-american spot."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We had a memorable meal at Deuxave. Each course was prepared with layers of well matched and delicious flavors. Our waiter, Don, was knowledgeable of the menu and wine profiles and added positively to our experience. We look forward to a return visit."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The only problem was the valet service. If you want to use it, then you have to approach the restaurant going south down Mass Ave. I parked on the corner, but apparently on the wrong side of the corner, and even though it was raining and the valet guy was standing right next to me, he told me I had to drive around, which takes about ten minutes. I'm sure there's a reason they have this rule, but come on--help a guy out."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This place is outstanding in every respect. It was challenging to select from the menu as everything sounded so good. We had appetizers to dessert plus cocktails and wine and we both agreed that this is one of the best restaurants in Boston. Can't wait to go again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "From the manager to the valet our experience was excellent. Everyone treated all of us with the utmost respect. We I'll be back again for our next family celebration."

  • "Recently visited Boston and can be hard to please with "special meal and / or special restaurant". Not disappointed on this one - located in residential Area outside of traditional downtown fare this corner restaurant across from Elliot Hotel not likely to disappoint. Open for 3? Years is serves nice selection of eclectic favors paired with classics. Highly recommend the pork trio and save room for dessert. Highly recommend giving this place a try."

  • "Everything was seamless, from reserving online to the time we left. We arrived a little early with hopes to have a cocktail at the bar, but the bar was full and our table was ready, so we enjoyed our craft cocktails at our perfectly situated table. The ambiance could not have been better. Huge windows, fireplace, and dim lighting. We ordered the lobster gnocchi for our appetizer, this was delicious! Then we moved onto dinner, the chicken dish and bolognese dish were something to savor. Perfect proportions and perfectly made. The wine list was also great for pairing with each. But I can not forget to mention our server, Chantel. She was the best and very knowledgeable! She never hovered and allowed plenty of time for us to enjoy the night."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I was so pleased that we were able to get a reservation the same night at this top rated restaurant. Everything about it did not disappoint. The staff were very knowledgable and the service was very professional. We had duck liver pate as a first course. The presentation and accompaniments were lovely. DH had steak which he enjoyed and I had fish which was absolutely perfect. The servings are a good size so dessert needed to be small. A single scoop of toasted hazelnut ice cream was just the perfect ending to a truly lovely meal."

  • "Delicious meal. The duck confit melted in our mouths! Everything was perfect there. The waiter was very knowledgable and persnable."

  • "Dishes were very good, ingredients and presentation. Only that they were too salty."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had a table for 2 by the window in the back of the dining room and not only was it not noisy, it was private and it also allowed us to observe the street scene which is so nice in that part of the Back Bay Staff was superior, food innovative, tasty, and beautifully served. Ambience was very attractive, sophisticated and not at all stuffy. Loved it!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Four of us dined with one having the ravioli which was reported as best ever! Two had the potato crusted halibut and I had the duck with lentils that I am still thinking about. I'd go to Boston just for this dish! I also loved the foie gras! Some were crazy about the small Pariessiene Gnocchi ... Me not so much. Cosmos way above the usual as was French75. Wines chosen with help of Donald were perfect. I've eaten at some fabulous places and the quality of food, ambiance and service, unpretentious style were memorable!"

  • "We had a lovely dinner for 3. Staff was friendly and accommodated a special presentation we requested. Service was perfectly paced and each course was delicious. French onion soup and pommes frite Au canard were particularly notable. We had halibut and strip steak, both beautifully presented and tasty."

  • "While the locale and service were excellent, we had probably higher expectations on the food given that is the #1 restaurant in Boston by your reviews. The Melange of Beets were just plain roasted one, The Fois Gras and was sweet, The Scalops and Ravioli were very good but not outstanding."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We loved everything about our special night at this restaurant! Service - from the valets to the hosts to the server - all were friendly and attentive. The food was incredible. We had the lobster gnocchi appetizer and the French onion soup. For our entrees, we had the scallops and the ravioli. All were creative, flavorful and beatifully presented. It truly was an exceptional evening and a very special place to celebrate a birthday. We will be back!"

  • "I would like to thank Jason and his excellent executive chef and wait staff for another memorable dinner."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Though our overall experience at Deuxave turned out well, the restaurant committed one of the cardinal sins of service to start things off: Despite a long-standing reservation, we had to wait approximately 15 minutes for our table and were meanwhile shunted over to the bar where we presumably would spend some additional cash. We didn't -- though I might have started off with an extra glass of wine at our table if we'd been properly seated. Never good to start your guest off with a sour taste."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Everything about Deuxave was amazing. The staff was extremely nice, the appetizer, main course, dessert and sangria were all exceptional. I would definitely go back for another special occasion."
