Food and service were outstanding! I struggle to hear in "energetic" restaurants and two of our party were somewhat uncomfortable with the sun coming through the window. We loved the food quality - one of our party is a chef and she was impressed. I love that your eggs come from Wisdom Farms in Haxtun - my little home town!

We enjoyed our second meal at OpenTable, and we will come again. The salad, bison and wine were all delicious. I'd like to see a broader, higher end wine program though to complement the food experience.

Our server was excellent. We were a party of 6 and all guests enjoyed all courses of food. As it was midweek, the noise level was moderate. We have been on a previous occasion on a weekend when the noise level was high.

Monday nights at Duo feature a three-course vegan menu. This week's features were outstanding. From the corn and potato fritter appetizer and ancient grains stuffed green peppers through the plum cobbler dessert there was not one disappointing bite. The dishes were flavorful, well-composed, nuanced and delicious. I'll be back for more and am recommending Mondays at Duo to all my vegetarian and vegan friends.

Although they were out of the wine I wanted. The alternative was great. Excellent scallops for an appetizer. I had the pork chop and it was out of site

It was a hot day, so can’t blame them for that... but boy it was not inside the restaurant too!! Food was great, as always, but the heat made the meals far less enjoyable. It won’t stop us from coming back- but would love to see them invest in some effective cooking options-especially with small space and exposed kitchen

I ate there for brunch on the way from Aspen to the airport in Denver. Due to a wreck on the interstate, I was running a little late. They were so nice to hold my reservation and to rush my order so I could get out in time to head to my flight. I really enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the great service. I highly recommend it!

After we were seated, it took over 10 minutes for a server to greet us and bring us water. I ordered over medium eggs and was served the ugliest, over hard egg I’ve ever seen. I could make better eggs when I was 8. The server did try to make it right but the over medium eggs I received were cooked on a grill that was way too hot.

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.
