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.

Much too expensive. We did the tasting with wine pairing. both the food and wine were mediocre and the service was lacking. We have been to other tasting/pairings and the wait staff has always given lots o information. the wine pairings really didn't even go well with the food. Extremely disappointed - especially given the price!

Some of the best food I've ever had. It is creative, beautiful, thoughtful, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The servers and hosts were all so friendly and personable! I know food is good when it makes me involuntarily happy dance. I took a bite of the steak and happy danced :) It was the perfect place to take my mom when she was visiting in town.

We have been to Deuxave many times and usually have a very pleasant experience. This time, had a 7:15 pm reservation and was told that it would be 15-20 minutes before our table would be ready, because they had a lot of walk-ins. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. It ended up being a half-hour before we were seated. Unacceptable. I understand when it might be 5 or 10 minutes before you are seated, not 30 minutes. Won't be going back anytime soon or perhaps not at all. There are other nice restaurants out there.

1st experience.Excellent from the minute we walked through the doors. Met one kind and ready to serve person after another...(host)ess, bartender waiter, bus person. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Seamless team. Not uptight. Outstanding food, ambiance, slightly off the beaten track city location. Pricey but special. Thinking of our next reason to go back.

The food was exceptional, the ambiance was expected, the service was embarrassing.

3/5 due to lackluster service given by Eric. While never rude, he was unavailable for our table.

As I watch Eric give 3 other tables decent service I began to wonder if I had offended him. Clearly this was not the case as we only interacted with him three times during the 5 course tasting; When he greeted us, after we had to ask his manager for another cocktail, and to drop the check off.

At the beginning of our meal I inquired about the caviar. Eric implied that it was too advanced for our palette. Meanwhile, he could not even properly describe an IPA. Shameful at best.

Somewhat disappointing. Service was fair. It took a while before anyone acknowledged us and offered to take our drink order. Then it took what seemed like a long time to bring the drinks. Our first course came in a reasonable time. But we had to inquire about our main course. We appreciate some time in between courses but this was a bit much. The food was good but it was not hot. I didn’t want to send it back for fear it would take more time. Again it took several minutes to get the dessert menu. We opted for our check and left. Not sure I would return any time soon. As for the value, it seemed a little overpriced for what we had.

We were visiting Boston for the weekend and a friend recommended Deuxave. It scored on all fronts. The greeting was pleasant and professional. Our server was polite and knowledgeable. A diverse menu highlighting duck dishes. The four of us enjoyed our first courses (the Night Moves gnocchi and lobster was superb as were the beets and the French onion soup). Our server knew the wine list including the modest bottle we bought and the wines by the glass. The duck entree was excellent as were the corn agnolotti and the NY strip steak. It got a bit loud as the evening went on, but nothing overly bothersome. A great evening in a nice setting in an upscale neighborhood. All good.

The chef's tasting menu here is well chosen from the many interesting selections on the menu. The wine pairings were also quite good. We had just one glitch during the evening when there was along break (at least 15 min) between the second or third course. Not sure what happened and no explanation was given, but they did pour a little more of the wine that was paired for that course. That aside, every dish was beautifully composed and delicious.

We had a very good dinner though service could have been more attentive. The one issue I have with Deuxave is that you have a reservation and arrive on time they ALWAYS tell you your table isn’t quite ready ‘how about a drink at the bar while you wait’. It’s just rude as they only want you spend money at the bar. Fifteen/twenty minutes go by and your table is ready and it was also just as ready when you arrived. It’s insulting.

I don't see my girlfriend often because I live thousands of miles away, so when I come to Boston to see her we visit our favorite restaurants and seek out new ones, it was my turn to book, so choose Deuxave, a quite pricy restaurant. Firstly we had to wait for our water, wine and champagne , starters only arrived 20min after ordering them, I had the Duet of Prime Beef Tartare & Wagyu Carpaccio and my partner the Mélange of Heirloom Beets, which was acceptable and then we waited for over an hour for our main courses to arrive, no reason was given why... there was a delay, my loved one ordered the Pan Seared Atlantic Halibut and I Spiced Long Island Duck Breast with a side of Native Bok Choy, Black Garlic Emulsion, Pickled Daikon Radish and this is where it became unsavory excuse the pun, The Halibut was over cooked, she left half, my duck was so dry and chewy it and without taste, I had about 3 bites before I gave up, even my wine couldn't wash it down properly and don't let me get started on the Bok Cho, it was obvious it was in the warmer has long as we had been waiting for our main courses, it was the worst dish that both had ever tasted. The whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths.
