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.

    We came for a special occasion and this restaurant is outstanding. Service, unique menu and felt welcomed from beginning to end. Muted colors and decor should dictate indoor voices but unfortunately, the larger groups of people were loud. Too boisterous so we left without dessert or coffee.

    Excellent, sophisticated food and service. Not all French, some Italian options too. Great atmosphere. We sat outside due to covid concerns with an older crew, and the heaters were great. The only downside is that Deauxave is very expensive, but I'm sure the rent in that neighborhood is not cheap. Highly recommended as long as you are not on a budget.

    We started out with a reservation for 6 and life stepped in - 2 of us could not make it. The staff was very accomodatng and soon seated us at a table for 4. My concern was that I had been called and reduced the number to 5 and then on the morning of the 20th heard from a friend that she was ill. I emailed on the suggestion of the phone message but neither bit of information seemed to have reached the front desk. Nevertheless, the staff adjusted and we had a wonderful time - as usual.

    Ambiance and noise was hard to evaluate for the restaurant specifically since we sat on the patio. However it was a nice space. It didn’t matter for this trip since the weather cooperated, but it would be nice if umbrellas or an awning was added in case of rain.

    For the high price the food was moderately good. I am a big foodie so my standards are high, especially for a restaurant with French cuisine. Seating outside was fine, propane patio heaters did a good job except that the woman seated behind me had hot flashes and kept asking the waiter to turn off one of the 2 heaters near me, while I was very cold and would have preferred to have them both on. The beef tartare was excellent, the sea bass ($47) was good but not mind blowing. Nice hints of lime and cilantro, good textures. The haddock was a big disappointment, my husband didn’t mind it so I had his sea bass and he had my haddock. Bland, not seasoned enough, a big miss. The bolognese my friend had was good. The mushrooms side dish another miss, you couldn’t feel the taste of mushrooms. We ordered the coconut panna cotta (our friends) and the Vacherin (us). Our friends were happy with their choice and our Vacherin was exquisite. The wines were good. All in all it was a nice dinner despite the big variations in the quality of dishes but given that we dropped closed to $800 for 4 people, it was not worth it, not at all. Last but not least, the crowds who were there-a very strange homogeneous crowd. Old (late 60’s early 70’s) good looking extremely well-dressed white men with women, also very well-dressed and half but mostly 1/3 their age. One couple (the woman seated behind me) was the opposite, for a change. It felt like a place where these couples use as their meeting point, to impress the others and maybe the world, but for sure were not there for the amazing food. Many dishes which look so amazing on the website, weren’t available. So, if you are a food lover and think you will get the top of the line French cuisine experience, look somewhere else. On the flip side, the service was excellent. I wouldn’t recommend it and we will not go back.

    Our server treated us very poorly compared to the tables beside us. I don’t know why. At both tables, he took 5 minutes to give extensive descriptions for every menu item. For us, he told me over his shoulder there was no salmon and he’d be back to take our order. No interest in serving us at all. Neglected us all night. He brought out 4 bottles for 1 table to pair their wine. Didn’t even ask us if we wanted to order a bottle. When I asked him about this he said “you must have worked in the business before”. Whatever that meant. I could go on. Just a substandard level of service. He reeked of cigarettes too.

    Four of us. The steak tartar/capacio was excellent The crispy duck appetizer was very good. Three had the duck for main coarse. Great flavor and perfect temperature. Outstanding sauces. Would of liked the cherries to be pitted. I had the sirloin steak. Cooked perfectly and well seasoned. Corn relish had excellent flavor and pared well with the sirloin. The corn bread waa deep fried. Over cooked so it waa little greasy and extremely dried out. Sauces had a fruity flavor and Touch of hear. Which again pared very well with the meat. We had three deserts. Cheese plate had excellent cheese selections. Each cheese teased the palette and complimented each other. Crem burle well thought out and extremely creamy and full of flavor. The fore gua ice cream was adventurous with it and surprisingly pared well with the dish. The flaun had multiple layers of flavor as it compliments all balanced each other. Wait staff was excellent. Overall an excellent dinner.

    Service a bit slow but an amusing waiter. Brought the wrong first course -duck confit rather than duck pate but we stayed with the confit. Good wine list with small but excellent selection of half bottles. Food was good but not outstanding.

    Definitely way overpriced for a so so food and average service. After reading reviews and seeing that a lot of people said the same thing lately about this place being significantly overpriced, I still decided to give it a shot given almost 5 star overall rating, but was disappointed by everything. All food was oversalted. We made reservation for outside which was ok but no ambiance there whatsoever. Just small tables outside along a pretty loud street. Service was weird too because the waitress kept running around because she kept running out of items, first she ran out of bread, then utensils, which wouldn’t be a big deal if not on top of oversalted food that wasn’t as good as you would expect. Won’t be going there again.

    Another wonderful evening at Deuxave! We sat on the terrace, celebrating an anniversary - perfect place to sit, both part of the city and quietly separate. The food was outstanding: I especially loved the crispy duck confit, and the striped bass with terrific supporting side veggies. I started with a great rye cocktail too. Everything is distinct, perfectly cooked, fresh and delicious. Service was just right too - attentive but not all over us. Fairly pricy, but worth it!
