We went for Valentine's Day. I had the lobster, it was inedible. Both tables surrounding us sent their food back. I would not recommend this place at all.

Felt like I went to Paris for the night—- intimate, cozy, lovely room. Helpful, fun, warm waitress. Excellent food — very fresh and perfectly prepared and great value. Tables are close together so might be tight on a crowded night.

Deuce Amis is a hidden gem. I felt as if I were eating classic French bistro food on the left bank. The escargot are wonderful, but the onion tart is superb. The steak aux poivre is perfectly prepared and a classic favorite. Small, cozy and romantic.

This is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food is good, service is good. It is a cozy, adorable restaurant. It is too bad that it is not opened for lunch. We were six ladies and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I have been there for Saturday brunch and it is excellent.

It was the best choice. Meeting an old and special friend. Don't get to see one another too often - first time we went to Fred's at Barneys - it was great but noisy and way too expensive. Next time we went to Bloomingdales, The Train - that was great - but now it is closed. So I chose Amaranth but then realized it would be toooo noisy. Then remembered DEUX AMI and made the reservation. It was beyond PERFECT!!! Everything about it was wonderful. It was snowing and bitter cold outside - but inside was warm and inviting - the Christmas decorations added to the already great ambiance. The service was excellent, the restaurant was busy, but the noise level was just perfect. We had a long lunch - we were not rushed and to top everything off - the food was great. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
I thank them for a lovely warm afternoon on a bitter cold day.
This is a delightful restaurant. I've been here many times and each time it does not disappoint.

I loved this place. I'd never been here before but it was one of the few places open on Christmas. From the outside I wondered if I made a mistake because it's nondescript exterior didn't match the lovely intimate interior. When I went inside I was greeted by a friendly woman who took my coat, took me to my table, at the time they were just opening for dinner so I had my choice of tables. The decor was nice and had a french feel to it. It was not too large and I prefer small intimate spaces without loud music or the young trendy crowd. It was one of the few times I couldn't choose a dish because they all sounded so good. After being told the specials, my date choose lamb and eventually I settled on the short ribs. As we waited more people started filing in but the ambiance remained unchanged. The bread was good, warm, a bit harder than I like, but the wine list was pretty extensive and I found the prices reasonable for its location. We had two entrees, 4 glasses of wine, 3 desserts and it cost about $150. We're definitely going back because I want to sample the duck and steak.

Deux Amis is a cozy restaurant and was a perfect choice for our special dinner for eight. Our server was top notch! The menu offered many choices and everything we ordered from appetizers to entrees was delicious (esp. the puff pastry appetizer, the filet mignon and the coq au vin). Sadly we were too full for dessert!

We felt we had discovered a gem in NYC. We liked the reviews and decided to give it a try. My couscous (a particular favorite) and my wife's bronzino were both among the best we've ever eaten. Surprisingly quiet for lunch on Saturday (no complaints) but excellent service added to a very enjoyable meal. We will definitely go back.

We booked for a group of 11 people as a surprise birthday party for my wife. They did not honor our reservation time which completely ruined the surprise we had planned, the waitress proceeded to be rude and could not be bothered to listen to anyone, she would take one persons drink order at a time and walk away ignoring the rest trying to order. When I eventually walked over and asked nicely if she could please see her way to just showing some common decency as it’s a birthday party for my pregnant wife, it got met with a sarcastic “sure” and a walk away. This was the worst restaurant experience we have ever had and will be telling every person I know NEVER to go to this place again. There was not a manager or owner in sight. It was so bad one of party guest looked up if it’s a themed restaurant where the waitress is suppose to be rude to the table because it was unbelievable. The only reason we stayed is because another waitress took over midway through.

We had a fabulous experience here. The walk is safe and not far from all of the New York City bustle. But here you are out of the bustle, warm, and cozy. I had the Bronzini (cooked crispy with lovely sauce), and my husband had the skirt steak. His was best I have to say. What a lovely experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The food was presented creatively, was delicious, and there were so many different choices. We ordered different entrees and were able to share them because portions were very ample. The ambiance was very cozy and comfortable. It gave mind to authentic restaurants in France. The service was outstanding and the bloody mary was the best ever. A very pleasant evening, for a reasonable price with very good friends.

True Parisian bistro vibe. Loved that but food was just ok/ good. Was hoping for better deeper sauce on my grilled shrimp with julienne veg. The coq au vin was great sauce with so so veg/ chicken pieces. Overall without the good service and vibe wouldn't rush back. Sorry to say.
