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.

Bisque was cold, but duck appetizer was delicious. Wrong to think the thanksgiving day turkey entree would be somehow more elegant. It was heavy and fairly tasteless. Desserts were nicely presented. I guess if you don’t go for Thanksgiving, I would recommend...but pricey.

Fantastic! From the reservation process for this birthday dinner (thanks Emily) to the amazing food, to our server Laidi(sp) and finally to the after dinner complimentary dessert wine and macaroons, everything was perfect! Definitely will be back. Deuxave is one of my very favorites in Boston!

Overall it was a great experience - we enjoyed the food and the ambience was quite lovely. We were particularly delighted by the seasonal dessert at the end of our meal. While our utensils and sides could have been brought to us in a more timely manner, we recognized that restaurant operation can be challenging in times like this. Would recommend this place for anyone looking for decent French cuisine in Boston.

We went here for our post COVID mini wedding dinner and the staff treated us like royalty! They brought us champagne to start, and write “congratulations” in chocolate across our dessert plate! Oh and the food was incredible! We’d definitely go back.

We go here often and I will say pre-COVID we felt it was starting to slip. We had a few bad dinners in 2019. They have really turned it around and we are loving this place again.

Everything was great. We sat at a high top in the bar area. I actually liked the high top better than expected. Much more quiet and secluded. Our server was Darien. Awesome drinks awesome service.

From making the reservation with the help of Emily, to the first exterior visual impression, to being greeted at the door, being shown our table with the view of Commonwealth Ave & Mass Ave, to the wine suggestions and enjoying the delicious salad of beets and pumpkin, our entrees of scallops and cod, to a yummy dessert, it was a wonderful, dining experience. Our favorite restaurant in Boston to date.

Normally I really like DeuxAve. This trip was a disappointment. Our server forgot one of our apps and my entree, the only vegetarian choice, was bland. It was spaghetti squash, eggplant and cauliflower with a red sauce.
Last time I was here I had a vegetarian pasta that was delicious. Big letdown. My meat-eating friends did enjoy their meals though.

The food and all the wait staff were uniformly excellent! This is an expensive restaurant. However, for a special occasion it is worth the money.

We ate outside on a cold-ish night. We were given 2 outdoor heaters, 1 at each side of our table; so we were toasty and enjoyed the ambiance of the old Boston neighborhood.

Creative twists on the traditional dishes and entirely innovative salads and desserts. The combination of ingredients in each dish are uniquely flavorful (compliments to the chef) and give me confidence to recommend ordering anything off the menu.

Favorites:
-Roasted Beet & Pumpkin Salad
-Native Lobster & Pumpkin Gnocchi
-Hazelnut Praline Mousse (dessert)
-Milk Chocolate Mousse (dessert)

Menu changes frequently but quality stays consistent. Check Insta

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.

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.
