Pork chops and lamb were good. I had heard people rave about this restaurant so expectations were high. It's a good little neighborhood restaurant but I won't drive across town again to go there.

Duo was a charming little restaurant. The food (salmon was tasteless and I had to use a lot of salt. The pork chop was better. Also it took one hour to get our food - I think they lost the order or something. Because of the delay, they offered a free dessert but didn't specify that it was one to share so we ordered two. When we asked they ended up comping both. The noise level was 87 on Sound Print but the system couldn't find the restaurant to submit it.

After being seated we waited nearly 10 minutes to be greeted and watered despite staff standing around by the service station, directly behind us, talking. We were served soured orange juice twice and our cocktails arrived mere seconds before our food. The lack of attention from our server only exasperated the experience. She removed our barely touched food without even a question if we had enjoyed. It was very apparent our lack of enjoyment and a manager should have been sent to our table. Will not return.

This place has inventive food that isn't fussy or overwrought. It's good, incredible quality, and frequently quite simple but executed at such a flawless high level that it's unimpeachable. The menu changes constantly so there's always something new to try.

Excellent flavorful food. I had the Bison Tri Tip and my wife had the Walleye. Both were amazing. Service was a tad slow but we were in no hurry. Our server was very knowledgeable and polite. I’ve been here a few times and know what to expect. Very consistent.

Brunch. Beautiful omelet but potatoes awful w so much paprika - and what if you don’t like paprika (it doesn’t say that on menu). My friend and I both felt sick after we left. She only ate one poached egg of two. Service excellent. Ambiance is lovely but not notable.

Went for my birthday last night and it was everything I wanted! It was not too big not too intimate, just right. The service was great! And the food was equally the same! Will definitely go back.

another really pleasant experience at this restaurant. We had the bison and the pork chop, both really good (although the little bit of sauce with the pork chop was a little reminiscent of bbq sauce). The bison in particular was tender (especially for a sirloin) and really tasty. The potatoes with the bison were unusual and really good themselves. Desert was good, but not quite the indulgence I had expected from this place.

Just another restaurant trying to look cool, but can’t support the service and quality of food for the price. Shrimp appetizer Ceviche was a poor excuse. Hush puppies were brittle dry and tasteless. Took them 20 minutes to bring out two mixed drinks. Usually, open door critiques are on point. Not this time. 1 1/2 stars.

The service was very attentive. The meal was very good though the dishes we ordered (pork chop and bison steak) we’re not at the same high level as other dishes in the past. But, Duo has set a high bar, making it hard to continually beat themselves. The salmon carpaccio was fabulous!This is one of our favorite spots and we’ll definitely be back.

We had a wonderful meal at Duo. The appetizers were on point and very flavorful. The cheeseboard with sheep and cow cheese was delicious and the lamb paté was terrific. Our guests shared the bison and we had the lamb duo. Cooked to perfection. The wine selection was very nice and our waitress Molly was always at hand to help with meal and wine choices. Great experience

We really enjoy Duo as a place to go to celebrate an event in our lives. Last Monday, we were seated next to a table of six people enjoying their time together, and it did not disturb our dinner at all. They, and we, enjoyed our dining experience at Duo. Recommend highly.

Service was phenomenal- Michelle made sure we had everything we needed and more. She was warm and never pushy. Food was solid- but the pastry board seemed a bit stale, possibly old? The savory food was delicious. Would definitely recommend!
