Duo is one of our "go to" places for Brunch! The food and beverages are always fantastic, and the service is even better! We especially enjoyed dining in our private garden house outside on a warm winter afternoon

Quaint bistro greenhouse was a fantastic solution to outdoor dining. Quiet, warm, and cozy. The menu was excellent and the staff friendly. Can’t wait to return to one of our favorite spots!

We have gone to Duo three or four times now, and every single time it proves why it’s become a staple date night spot. The food and service never disappoints. Even during Covid, they set us up in a great little heated cottage out front and ensured our stay was fabulous as always. We love it here and will continue to keep coming back!

We ate recently in the "greenhouses" just outside the restaurant on the night after Christmas. I have to say that Duo is really doing a great job with a tough situation in the outdoor Covid-restricted dining environment.

The food was fabulous - I had the "duo Stimulus Menu", a 3-course meal and chose the Red Wine Braised Buffalo Short Ribs which were delicious, deep with flavor and very satisfying. My wife had the Pork Chops, with had an amazing sauce and the pork was as juicy and tender as can be. The wine and cocktail selection was abundant, I chose the Schiava red wine with dinner and had the "Everything Nice", a warm Bear Creek Bourbon warm cocktail with fall spices to start off the evening.

The waiter was attentive and very helpful.

Dining in the small space of the sidewalk greenhouse felt safe and was also warm and comfortable, even in a crisp winter Denver evening. The space heater was toasty but definitely come prepared with warmer clothing than you'd wear inside. Still very do-able on all but a subzero evening. I'd recommend giving their covered outdoor a go, and most of all, the service and food were terrific!

This is the 3rd restaurant we’ve tried during Denver Restaurant Week and so far it’s been our favorite! Love that they just did their full menu as the choices for each course. Definitely worth the price and wonderful/quick service :) Will definitely be back!

Excellent all-round! Great food, service and atmosphere. Cocktails were excellent, apple and Brussels sprout salad and ricotta ravioli were delicious, as were our entrees - fried chicken and steak frites. Service was good throughout, and apple cake and chocolate macadamia for dessert hit just the right note. I will definitely be back!

Great brunch with dad and step-mom while they visited. The food and service were excellent - it’s not easy to accommodate a diabetic and a vegan, but Duo does it seamlessly. Good variety on the menu, and the service was excellent.

The COVID protocols are incorporated wry naturally - great use of the space and glass “screens” that go well with the decor. Highly recommend reservations.

I like going out during Covid because the restaurant is not as crowded so we didn’t have people all over us and around us so the covid dining is a plus as well. But....the service and food was outstanding. My husband and I got the pork chop and steak frites and both were delicious from the distinct flavors to the look of the plate. We then had the macadamia chocolate tarte and it is just that tart but it was so good. I will say the drinks are pricey but we were on a date and we don’t let price hinder us from living our best lives together! Try this place you will like it a lot but it will cost you so be prepared for that but it is worth it to us.
