Diner Reviews
  • "Brunch was great and we were able to sit outside. The eggs were fresh and the breakfast sandwich was amazing."

  • "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."

  • "Demetri is the man the best server ever!! It was like mimosa heaven. You can have bottomless mimosas until 12am who does that????? The ambiance was the bomb! I've never been to a place that has perfect seating no matter where you sat. The decor was to die for!!! I'll be back for sure! "

  • "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. "

  • "We have tried this restaurant sevel times since it opened. This last experience was very enjoyable. The chef has changed many times which has made the food unpredictable . The MAJOR flaw on this place is the lack of the ownerships ability to keep a chef."

  • "Dinner was great the duck was cooked perfectly and the scallops were fresh and delious We have been here several times perfect patio dining drinks and food are always perfect This time only thing we didn't care for was the waitress she was good friendly she just didn't know her menu specials and couldn't answer questions very well. Other than that great dinner"

  • "The lunch specials were delicious, and the waiter suggested we split them all- a perfect solution for 3 wonem who couldn't decide. can't wait to go back. Decorated beautifully and heaters on the patios."

  • "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!"

  • "The place looks great! Like Moderne Lodge. Food was fine; but farmer's market picks cooked and presented on small plates is feeling like a Los Angeles cliché at this point."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "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."

  • "My wife and I were there for Valentine´s dinner and we had a great time. Service (Andrew) was outstanding and the food was delicious. We sat outside and it was quiet with soft music."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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 loved the style of the outdoor patio and and casual living room atmosphere of the dining room was great as well. It's a great date spot. I thought the food was pretty average. If the food could keep up with the ambiance I'd be more inclined to return."

  • "I went here for a birthday brunch around 11 am on a Saturday.. It was a sunny day so we sat outside on the patio. It was such a fun brunch.. bottomless mimosas $15, they were never empty! The food was also really delicious.. I had the omelete and potatoes (very delicious) but my friends had the pizzas which they said were delicious. Good service."

  • "Duplex was a great little find. From the outside, it appeared classy and elegant. On the inside it was unassuming and comfortable, yet still classy and elegant. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. The service was warm, friendly and quick. I am looking forward to going back again and trying another menu selection!!"

  • "What totally killed this place for me is they have B card. Didn't notice it until I was walking out. I never would have gone here. We had crab cake appetizers, bland. The ceviche was great. The brussel sprouts were delish. I had ravoli as my main course it was fine. We had lava cake, berry cobbler and beignets for dessert. The lava cake was meh, cobbler was good until you got a scoop of overly sweet berries that tasted from a can. The Beignets were good. All the cocktails were good. Overall I probably would not return as the food doesn't stand out though I didn't hate it. The fact that they have the B card just puts the nail in the coffin. On the upside the service was good and the restaurant is beautiful."

  • "We reserved a table for Thanksgiving dinner. We came early to enjoy happy hour. We were told there was no happy hour on the holiday. That was NOT mentioned on the restaurant"s website which describes happy hour as daily. No problem. We then presented a coupon that was in an e-mail from the restaurant to us for a free appetizer. The manager said he had NEVER SEEN such a coupon!. On to dinner. Flavorless turkey and stuffing. Gravy made from water, salt and cornstarch, and little else. Very indifferent food to match the service. We still tipped well. We asked the manager to call a cab. He mumbled something. I asked him to repeat . He said the bartender will call you a cab. I went to the bartender. He told me he couldn't call from his phone!"
