    No idea why there aren't lines out the door for Duplex's brunch but I've gone the last two Sundays and both times great food, service and not crowded at all. Great selections on the menu, patio or indoor seating and the service is top notch.

    In one word: TERRIBLE. Don't waste your time or money here. It was my husbands birthday. Not only did I call the restaurant, but I mentioned it again to the hostess. Nothing was done. No dessert, no candle. Food was not great. I always take home my leftover pasta. Not at this place. Service started off great, and dwindled to barely seeing our server. The place was empty at 8pm on a Saturday night. This says something about a place. Considering next door at AOC, the place was a buzz.

    Our waiter was nice and efficient,but the food was very poorly cooked, overpriced and you could tell that they weren't making any effort to ensure the minimum quality to justify these prices. 30 dollar entrees. Over salted scallops. A steak frites that used a cut of meat that was not appropriate. Greasy and undercooked. 15 dollar salads that were barely there. And a bus boy that was rushing us and making questionable jokes for no apparent reason. Very disappointing experience overall. It is hard to understand how this business is operated in such a mediocre, lackluster way in an area filled with restaurants and many better options. I regret having made a reservation there.

    Ordered Salmon plate. Salmon was raw. The waiter took it back to the kitchen to let chef know. He comes back and doesn't tell us anything. At that point we were fed up with the whole place and asked for the check. Upon signing the credit card slip, I asked the waiter about the salmon and he said the chef agreed it was raw. I told him why he didnt inform us and he said he didnt think we wanted anything else. We will not frequent the Duplex ever again.

    We were promptly attended to once we walked through the door and got sat in the main dinning room where we enjoyed the fish and cut of the day for dinner. The suggested wine pairings for our dinner was right on. The entire dining area was beautiful and chic. Its a great spot to catch up on conversation and celebrate an occassion. Our server checked in on us in a timely manner and displayed great mastery of the menu. It's a great spot to eat any meal from your casual days to a dress party. It can be what you want on any day.

    First time experience. Loved the decor and menu online, and took a chance inviting out of town guests. What a great surprise right of the bat. Very friendly staff, she sold us on the fancy drinks, they were fun and delicious. Wine list is excellent but not extravagant. We had a gluten free guest, they did a great job of suggesting a number of items with slight mods to make them perfect. Loved all the fish dishes and that amazing duck dish...wow. Crispy and sweet. Overall a great time, we will be back.

    I went for lunch to celebrate my birthday with friends. We were greeted by a host that was so lacking in personality, almost as if he wished we hadn't bothered him. The place wasn't busy at all, yet the service was inattentive at best. When our presence was FINALLY acknowledged, at least our server was pleasant and feigned interest. The food was nothing special. We'd driven 45 mins to get there... it felt like a total waste.

    I love the way the place looks inside and the large outdoor area. But the quality of our food was mixed. My shrimp salad was delicious--very interesting combo of ingredients and a good dressing. The zucchini pizza was so so. Crust was average and not enough ingredients in proportion to the crust. The hamburger was good. Sauce on the mussels not as good as many other places. But if you want to get together with folks in this neighborhood, and especially if you want to sit outside, it's a good place. I've rated it 3 but it's really 3.5.

    Saturday evening the staff of Duplex on Third went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable experience with our dinner guests. We sent over prior to our arrival a large ballon display. The staff made sure it was given a place of honor at our table. Our waiter, Doug, had a great since of humor and interacted very well with our group. As always the foood was outstanding. Unfortunately they did not have their banana ice cream in stock. Altogether a very enjoyable evening.

    We were looking for a restaurant with quality food without having to drive into BH and without breaking the bank -Duplex on Third more than filled the bill. Lovely ambiance with a real sparkle. We sat outside on the balcony/ the fire warmers worked really well even though it was a chilly evening. Service was professional, friendly and yet not intrusive! Down to earth place with unique and delicious food. We split the Marche salad & for entrees we had fish special - red snapper- & Pappardelle with Lamb all were delicious & I would definitely order again. Be sure to save room for the Beignets:6 round warm beignets filled with just the right amt of rich chocolate filling /served with a raspberry dipping sauce. OMG they were good.

    My husband & I have been wanting to try Duplex for a few months & finally were able to carve time to go. We had a lovely table by the window just for two. The staff was extremely accommodating, knew the specials & were helpful in confirming our choice. We started with mussels & chorizo w/ tomato-saffron broth as well as the lamb meatballs which were very good. The braised short rib and parmesan risotto with balsamic and pineapple glazed pearl onions. My husband had what he called one of the best steaks he ever had - although he didn't care for the lobster mashed potatoes. Dessert of chocolate truffle beignets & strawberry sauce and butterscotch creme brulee topped off the meal. All in all a lovely dinner and we can't wait to go back.

    The food was great and the staff attentive. This was the first time I visited since the closing of Barefoot in the same location. We had lunch early midday on a weekday, and it was a bit quiet for the kind of vibe I was seeking, but that made it very pleasant for socializing with my group. Pricing was quite reasonable. They have some interesting-looking cocktails on the menu which I may come back to try when I don't have to return to work afterward. I hope they succeed -- it is a wonderful space with lots going for it.

    We had a delicious dinner a couple nights ago to celebrate my cousin's graduation. We brought our own wine so can't speak to their list, however for the food the carbonara and short ribs were both filled with flavor and portions were perfect. Our server was also great, I think I'm used to too many ego-driven LA servers and he was nothing but kind and attentive, a real plus to the dining experience!

    Among the snobbier hotspots in this corner of town, Duplex is a great casual place for lunch or dinner with a glass of wine. The noise level is never so bad you can't have a normal conversation, and quite often it isn't very crowded at all. The service loves to see regulars. And the food is delicious, especially my current favorite: the short ribs over risotto.

    they were out of most of the appetizers by the time we sat down at 8:30. Restaurant was half full so it's not like they were busy. Wife had a fish and I had a steak. Neither was good. Left hungry. Not recommended. Met another couple a few days later, they happened to be there the same night and had the same bad experience. Maybe it was just a rough night for the restaurant but this was valentine's day when they're overcharging for everything. You'd assume they'd put their best foot forward in such a situation.

    Food and service were great. Lots of menu items to choose from. We sat outdoors which was really nice and although the weather was a little cool, the heat lamps made up for it. The only noise came from emergency vehicles that whizzed by on two separate occasions. But that's to be expected when it's virtually across the street from a hospital. Bottomless sangria was delicious. We had a great time and definitely going back to try something else from the menu.

    I went one night with 2 of my girlfriends. It was not very crowded but that was fine with us. We really wanted to be able to hear each other talk. The waiter was very friendly and went over the specials and all our questions. We had some. We each had something different and loved it all. They also have a great wine list and 2 of my friends had wine and were very happy with their choices. We also had dessert and coffee at the end. The food and service were really good. I would definitely go back and have told my other friends to go as well. They have valet in front so you don't have to look for parking. The area gets crowded up fast due to being close to Cedar's Sinai hospital but we didn't have a problem getting in and out fast.
