Great food and drinks. If you don't want to be part of the scene/crowd, this is a great place to go for a cocktail after work to catch up with a friend. Food is incredible, but on the pricey side.....not your every day kind of menu. Highly recommend you go at least once to check it out - you won't be disappointed. Service is also great. Although a busy corner (Mass/Comm.) they have valet parking after 5pm which is a life saver on a hot summer night.

We had a great night celebrating our anniversary- initially we had a table that was too close to comfort, but when we inquired they promptly switched us to a romantic private small booth. The duck is the best I've ever had. Thanks guys for making our night memorable.

Food was great! We were originally sat at a tiny table and asked to be moved. They weren’t busy so they were able to accommodate. The atmosphere was perfect for a romantic dinner.

Honestly, although professional, I didn’t think the staff was very personable and lacked enthusiasm. I also think they assumed we weren’t going to spend much money *eye roll*. They only perked up a little when they realized we were going to spend well over $300 for 2 people. It’s our one date night a month, for how much the food costs a smile or a joke wouldn’t hurt anyone! I prefer restaurants with a friendlier staff.

I would overall recommend to friends because the food was great!

Quite average and unimpressive dishes after all. The taste mix isn't superb and everything is just an "expensive ordinary". Service is mixed. This is an experience where you wish you should have upcharged $50 more for a more satisfying culinary encounter.

Delicious and gracious dinner at Deuxave
From the moment we entered the door on an seasonably cold June evening we felt warm and cared for. The room is a lovely combination of down to earth stone and beautiful fabrics.
The upholstered chairs are very comfortable. the windows give a lovely view of Back Bay along Commonwealth Ave. Our server came quickly and took drink orders and made menu recommmendations. We were celebrating a birthday and it was noted right at the outset by our server. Although the room was close to full the noise level was very low and conversation at our table flowed easily. Along with our drinks ,which were creative and well drafted, came warm rolls and house mixed butter. the choices of original cocktails and wines are varied and well curated.
The menu contains items from chicken, duck, and fish to beef , pasta, and vegetarian dishes .All are prepared in original and thoughtful ways. The portions are generous and most delicious.
The plates also look lovely when they arrive. The care and attention to detail in preparation makes dining a joy. The service is gracious , friendly, and seems effortless.
Dessert is also original and the two we had were worth every calorie. A lovely chocolate with a congratulatory message for our birthday was included with dessert. The meal concluded with a complimentary dish of brownie bites topped with cheesecake and almond macarons, again worth every calorie. This was a truly wonderful celebration - thank you!

We went to Deuxave for our anniversary and they made it a special night. We opted for the tasting menu once our waiter assured me they could adapt it to replace the seafood selection due to my allergies. Warm beet salad followed by a scotch egg, crispy duck confit, steak and crème brûlée. Each course was fantastic and the wine list had a selection for most budgets.

Our waiter Mark was very knowledgeable and attentive.

Delicious as usual. I had the halibut served with a scrumptious harissa sauce and bok choy. Before that I had a salad with asparagus, mozzarella and crispy duck confit. My drinks were also very delicious and the bartender made me a special drink per my diet where I was avoiding sugar and she added an alcohol that contributed a touch of sweetness with the sugar. My only complaint is that my company wanted to sit outside...it wasa gorgeous night weather wise....but the city noise and trucks and ambulances was annoying at times.....city life comes with noise.

We celebrated our engagement at this romantic restaurant and it was incredible. From the complimentary champagne toast, to each delicious bite of food. It was an experience we will never forget. I ordered the french onion soup and beef tenderloin which tasted incredible. My fiance ordered the halibut and it was also delicious. My immediate reaction to all the food was "it does not taste real" as it truly helped make our day even more magical

So glad I finally made it to Deuxave. What a beautiful space, with food and service to match! The halibut and the duck breast were exquisite, as were our starters of heirloom beet salad and the french onion soup. The wine list is voluminous with many interesting choices. I love that the menu, the ambiance, and the service are refined and elegant without feeling stuffy or contrived. We will definitely return and will recommend it to others.

Food is fantastic, and it is easy to talk as the room is not loud. Rooms are lovely, and there is a nice outdoor space as well. Menu changes seasonally, so you can go back and it still seems new.

My mother and I came and sat on the patio for a celebratory dinner, and everything about the experience was excellent. The outdoor dining space is very comfortable, and the service was impeccable. Our waitress and the hostess made an effort to make us feel special at every step, including sending champagne. However the food was even more amazing than the experience. Every bite of every dish was exceptional!

Food is creative and very tasty, if a little heavy. Nice presentations.
Decor is quite dark/ drab despite attempt at nouveau warmth. Service is good but can be uneven. Ridiculously noisy. Overall very good and I imagine best on a winter’s night. They do have outdoor tables with heaters.

We were visiting Boston for the Harvard commencement and chose this restaurant because of proximity to our hotel and based on online research. We were not disappointed. The space is comfortable and beautiful...and we were not crowded next to other patrons such that the noise and distraction is overwhelming. This is a flaw in some many restaurants—but not here. We were very pleased with our entrees and decided to “split” a starter—the server accommodated our request without hesitation. The sommelier was helpful in confirming a good wine choice. The server brought glasses of sparkling wine to cap off the evening as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. This is a very nice restaurant and worthy of the buzz.

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.
