We had fabulous evening on the patio at Deux Ave .

The bartender made up a "brown drink on training wheels" for me. And the meal was wonderful: tiny pate amuse bouche, fall salads, wine, duck & cod entrees, semi-freddo, and tiny dessert treats! I'm not sure how Emily & the wait staff arranged it, but Mother Nature even delivered a beautiful golden hour glow on the neighborhood buildings.

Our neighborhood gem is consistently excellent.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday! Food was incredible, as was the atmosphere and the drinks. They wrote Happy Birthday across the plate that they brought our dessert on for my wife. Wonderful experience and will definitely be back.

Deuxave continues to be our favorite place for celebrations. Consistently excellent food and wine, and did not disappoint. It was even warm and cozy on a cool evening with heaters on the patio. Do note that only bottled water is available for an additional cost, despite our excellent Boston tap water.

This was our first time at Deuxave, and it did not disappoint! It was our anniversary, and we had a lovely table outside on the patio. The staff was excellent and the food was amazing. We each did the chef’s tasting menu, I highly recommend it.

I'm just not a fan. The food is very good - it has been the service the last two times that has been less than you would expect at this type of dining establishment. Our waiter was not attentive - did not "read the room" very well. I also get the overall impression from the staff that they are just really impressed with themselves. This is the difference between a Mistral and Deuxave. At Mistral, you always feel welcome and special - here you feel as if they are doing you the favor by waiting on you. It leaves an impression. Also, very interesting, we were never offered bread - so when we asked, we were brought bread and charge for it - however the table next to us was brought a dinner roll. Maybe they were charged? Maybe not, it just seemed petty.
I'm going to write this place off my fine dining list.

Stellar October evening outside at Deauxave - 5 course tasting menu was amazing, especially the pan roasted cod with escargot tortellini in parsley butter sauce and the prime filet. Exemplary wine pairings. Lovely, friendly service. The outdoor heaters work really well too!

We’ve always had a great experience. This night was no different! Dined inside, and we felt more than comfortable. Plenty of distance between tables. And it was actually nice to see other patrons in the restaurant enjoying their evening as well.

Food was fantastic as always. And the service was top notch!!

Food and atmosphere were great. Servers were very nice, but slow (wine came several minutes after food, long gap of time between appetizer and entre). This place is advertised as fine dining, but little things (like serving the same type of wine in two different classes, not optimal glass for type of wine) were not up to the standard of a 5-star restaurant. Their duck dishes were very good. Their beef tartare was top notch!
The outdoor seating under heat lamps is fabulous.

I am normally very appreciative of this place and love eating there, but the beef tenderloin and the side of spiced carrots was a total letdown. The carrots were grilled to the point that they tasted like insipid potato fries and I just didn't enjoy them. The bread I love before the appetizer was different and lukewarm, and the entree was a lot of bland meat with not enough vegetables and sauce. Considering two of us split the $194 bill with tip and taxes added, this should have been a meal to savour. It wasn't. And the absence of regular ice water requiring the continuous purchase of exorbitantly priced Pellegrino Sparkling was vexing!

Always amazing food. Only thing I can complain about is the service has declined but that is only due to the situation with Covid and I presume are staffing issues.
Otherwise this is a great please to dine with excellent food and presentation.

I can’t say enough about this place. My lady and I were terribly late as we are not from Boston and missed a turn or 7. But, they took us right to our table. The service was beyond perfect. The servers knew more about wine than I knew was possible. Also their knowledge of food was very impressive. It’s one of those places that you will remember going to. It’s also the best meal I think I’ve ever had. It’s A fine dining experience and worth every penny. We’ve decided we want to go back to Boston just to go there again. Highly recommend going if you’re in the area.

We booked outdoors and had a table on the sidewalk. With a lovely warming lamp. We had a wonderful evening and we hope that the outdoor seating will be here even beyond the current pandemic. Almost had a Parisian outdoor flair...;)

I hate writing a less than positive review during this difficult time for restaurants, but I would want to know this. We made a REZ for outside - the patio area is beautiful. The hostess tried to seat us at a make-shift table on the street next to a parking meter. I understand that restaurants are trying to be creative, however sitting next to the street gutter is not where you want to be when spending $300 on a meal for two. If that is the only option, the diner should be given a heads up before arrival and I called to confirm checking on patio heaters since it was chilly. When I asked for a different table, she told me that we had to be done by 8:15 - again - not a warm & fuzzy when you are about to spend a lot of $$. The food is unremarkable for the price - $21 for a small crock of onion soup, not outstanding or worth it. Our waiter was very pleasant and to the restaurants credit the inside was full so I gather they have a neighborhood following. Personally, we did not think the meal or experience was worth the price.
