Owner Brian Piccini and Chef/Owner 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.

I was really disappointed by Deuxave. I went for my graduation with my family. The atmosphere was lovely and the service started out great. However, I have celiac disease, which I noted on OpenTable when I made the reservation, and it wasn't handled very well. I had looked at the menu online before coming and had picked out a dish that I thought would work well for me. Unfortunately, it was taken off the menu when we arrived. When the waitress came over to ask if we had any questions about the menu, I told her I have celiac and asked if there were any dishes that would work. She pointed out the scallop dish, which was served with tortellini, and said the chef could pair it with different vegetables to make it gluten free. She also offered me another option. I love scallops so I chose that dish, and after I ordered the waitress came back and asked me to pick a couple vegetables from the menu that I would like with my dish, so I chose asparagus and parsnip puree. When the entrees came, my dish consisted of three scallops (which were well cooked and seasoned) over a pile of boiled, unseasoned parsnips, boiled peas, and asparagus. There was no sauce on it and was extremely underwhelming, especially for the $35 price tag. I was really annoyed that the chef would offer to make me something off menu and then put absolutely no effort into it. I didn't want to say anything during the meal because I didn't want to ruin my celebration, but it really put a damper on a special dinner for me. I would not return.

I love Deuxave, and it's my go to for special occasions and great meals. I am gluten free and they do a great job accommodating me. I showed up on Saturday night to celebrate a 60th birthday of one of my friends. Of the three of us, all were gluten free, and two were dairy free. After sitting there for 1/2 hour, while all the other tables around us were served their amuse bouche - none for us for some reason - we asked why they hadn't delivered gluten free rolls yet. We were told there was a little bit of dairy in them. I don't have dairy issues, so not sure why they didn't ask if I would like them. Ok - they take 15 - 17 minutes to bake. An hour later, and our appetizers on the table, no rolls. People stop by to tell us that they take a while, but still.....we had been seated for an hour already. At the end of the meal, the waitress came over to one of my friends with the dessert menu. Asked her about a special dessert they could make for her, and then started to walk away. We stopped her to say, "would you like to know whether anyone else at the table would like dessert?"

Deuxave is wonderful - the food is excellent, and typically the service is top notch. Not last weekend. I might understand if we were seated in the height of the dinner hour, but we sat down to dinner at 5:45 when the restaurant was really empty....so not sure what happened.

The French onion soup was too sweet. The lobster gnocchi was also too sweet, and gnocchi was overcooked. Not genuine French cuisine as you can see from the items I mentioned. Overpriced, poor quality cooking.

Deuxave for us is and always has been perfection in great dining. We thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic and creative cuisine that makes us go WOW on each bite of every dish. Our entrees had nicely chosen and creative accompaniments with the fish and meat, all flavors went perfectly with one another like a great symphony performance. Nothing was wild for the sake of being new or for being trendy. The chef is truly a master chef. Service is friendly, helpful, and informed about both food and wine, but just enough without being overbearing. Someone always magically appears exactly when you want something. I would venture to say no high-end dining establishment in Boston really tops Deuxave for fabulous cooking and sophisticated yet understated interior design. Prices are high but in line, if not a bit less, than some of their high-end competitors in town. Very highly recommended.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We always go there when visiting Boston - always! The service is very good, the room is attractive and the food is very special. The menu is always interesting, varied, fresh and DELICIOUS! Do not miss the chicken! Hard to believe I am saying this about chicken but I am. No matter how they prepare it - and it changes - do not miss it! We have never been disappointed. There was one odd thing during this visit - there were 2 things we wanted to order but they had run out. We have never experienced that before.

We got the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Both my wife and I were very happy with the quality of the food and how well the pairings worked. Even though it was 5 courses, being fine French dining portions it ended up being just perfect amount of food.

The food at Deuxave was solidly tasty but not terribly original. In general, this was a good place for a fancy meal, but there are other restaurants in the Boston area with more inspired cuisine and better value. The service, however, was great -- everyone we interacted with was very friendly and charming.
