What a delightful restaurant!
What a delightful restaurant! We went for lunch and were able to enjoy some unusually warm LA weather in early March. The outside dining area has a wonderful feeling and we relaxed in large plush chairs. My cousin had crab cakes that were absolutely delicious. I enjoyed the fig and prosciutto pizza with arugula. I never thought I would finish it all but...it was so light and scrumptious! :) A wonderful place for lunch.

Great food, great brunch on weekend
Duplex is a great place to go for brunch. Great food, great ambiance, and for the most part we had an amazing time - except there was construction going on w/in a 1 block vicinity which made the experience not as fun. I'd definitely go back, less the construction noise.

Nice neighborhood find
The Duplex on 3rd was recently remodeled so I was curious to try it. The space is nicely done. The upstairs looks like it was designed as a great spot to have an event! The have nice wines by the glass, not a huge selection, but top notch choices, I had a Talbot Chard. Our hummus appetizer was quite tasty and came with fresh made pita puffs, the ceviche was ok, not great, but both our fish dishes (Branzino and Halibut special) were delicious! I definitely recommend this place.

A perfect spot for a group of 8 including two children. Menu was fabulous with so many tasty options. Fantastic drinks menu too. The inside dining area was open and inviting and not loud. They have patio dining too with heat lamps and the vibe was perfect. Kids loved the calamari and flat bread, while the rest of us tried various fish and steak dishes which were all wonderful. Don't miss out on the sorbets or the banana ice cream that comes with the chocolate cake. Definitely worth a visit

First time here, weeknight
First time here, weeknight dinner on terrace overlooking the sidewalk. Marvelous server, great attention to ensuring we had a good time. Excellent food, nice variety of specialty drinks. Salads and entrees are generous portions. Easy, restaurant with noisy bar and quiet space in dining room. We can walk here so it's now on our list of weeknight no hassle comfortable dinners at place that has good tasting, unfussy, healthy options.

The food and service, combined with a lively atmosphere, makes Duplex a fun place to meet up with friends for casual dining and drinks.

Duplex on Third is First Class
I stopped by for lunch and had the LA Restaurant Week special for $15.00. A very tasty, well presented and healthy lunch that would be more than double at most decent restaurants abd triple at the high end ones. Highly recommend the Duplex.

We went specifically for the DineLA menu; unfortunately, half of the items on the menu (the ones we wanted) were not available, and originally trhe waiter did not even want to show the menu to us. Overal, though, the food was very good.

Dinner on terrace is delightful.
Dinner on terrace is delightful. Terrace is off the vibrant bar scene but not noisy at all except for street. Second time here, food is quite good, not fussy food, just normal nice restaurant food served hot and presented well. Unfussy husband likes this place. Roasted Brussels sprouts are wonderful. Fish entrees done well. Service was a little spotty, but that got cleared up quickly. Love the zippy pesto served with the bread. Dining room is really quiet, good place to quiet conversation. Second time here and we will come back as it's in our neighborhood.

Date night find
The atmosphere is warm, attractive, contemporary and the food is excellent.
The maitre d' greeted us heartily and checked up on us during our meal.
The tuna tartare starter was fresh and tasty---but wasn't served with any crackers or bread
Only a few banana chips. The branzino was very good and had roasted artichokes.
My husband had a wide pasta noodle dish which he loved.
We will definitely go back again.

Last Minute Meal
Had a friend in town and we dropped in last minute on a Saturday evening. Duplex was able to seat us right away at an outdoor table. Food was quick and delicious.

Great food, service, atmosphere! Really enjoyed it. Was there for a small (3) birthday dinner and cocktails on a quieter Monday night. The place is beautifully and comfortably decorated. Great noise management. Bar and upstairs area are great for events. I will def return for dinner, cocktails at the bar and/or planning event upstairs.

flying under the radar

Short Rib Rosti OMG
This was the perfect portion of heaven. Pair it with one of their cocktails. That's all I have to say.

I picked it to entertain Chief
I picked it to entertain Chief Executives visiting from NY after reading the reviews. I made the reservation and asked for a round table in a fairly quiet area away from the bar so we could talk. We arrived to find the best table in the house! Right under the beautiful fireplace in the library room. Perfect music and ambiance for our occasion. The service was especially attentive, and they never interrupted our conversation nor forgot a thing! The food was outstanding. Everyone loved the cocktails, starter salads and scallops. I find Short Rib on a few menus lately, but haven't had one so tender and tasty with an amazing cous cous. To take such good care of 8 women so well means I will definitely put it on my list of "go to" restaurants.

I had a really good experience here, I wanted to spend my husbands birthday at a good restaurant with a great bar so friends could trickle in and hang out w/ us for a drink after dinner, and I got exactly what I wanted. We tried a lot of food and it did not disappoint... esp the short rib. Good cocktail menu, and really beautiful atmosphere. Also, the service was impeccable - the staff was so friendly and helpful in getting the surprise part of the bday worked out. I really enjoyed our evening.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been walking past Duplex for months and finally went with a girlfriend of mine. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. We will both definitely visit again and suggest to others as well.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sat on the patio which was very comfortable. We all had some type of egg dish; a frittata and an omelette w/chicken sausage, veggies and a kind of cheese I wasn't familiar with-I think it was Mexican? I would definitely go there for brunch or lunch after a day shopping at the Beverly Center or on Robertson.

Couldn't have been better
A dear friend of mine and I had started air AOC but it was so loud there we couldn't hear each other. So we walked over to the absolutely wonderful Duplex On Third. We were warmly greeted with a handsome young man with a big friendly smile who showed to our table outside on the front terrace. Our handsome and friendly wait person, Steven, was the consummate guide and caregiver, well versed in the menu and happy to give his recommendations, which we heeded. Crab cakes, short ribs. All delicious. And quite frankly I could have taken handsome Steven home with me for fair turnabout. Thank you Duplex for a wonderful evening!

I will be back very soon….

Great outdoor seating!
I've been to Duplex a few times now and every time I feel so drawn to the seating outside; the heatlamps keep you warm and the setting is modern, yet comfortable. The food is quite good, and the plating is refined/not overdone, which is nice to find, as so many restaurants seem to pile things on that are unnecessary. That being said, the ingredients are fresh and flavors are very multilayered and complex. Only complaint is that some of the chairs outside are a bit firm and uncomfortable.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The first time we went here is was just AVG., but recently we decided to go back and it has definitely improved in the right direction. Great patio in front make for great scenery and the food has gotten better as well as the staff. This is a great lunch spot with a good vibe and good music to boot. We will be coming back often as we like the décor and over all ambiance of Duplex..
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The interior of the restaurant is really beautiful. The service was excellent and the cocktails were made perfectly. I will definitely be back soon. My mother really enjoyed the Thanksgivibg meal. This is definitely my new place to dine and have drinks.
