As always, Duo does not disappoint for brunch! We especially enjoy their ever-changing pastry board, and love their brunch menu items (we've tried most of them). Have not been there for dinner yet, but definitely plan to.

Food was amazing but the service was less than stellar. After ordering, we didn’t see our server again until she brought the dessert menus. At that point we asked for the bill. We plan to try it again because the food was amazing but were very disappointed with the service.

This was our first time dining at Duo and can say we will definitely be back. It’s quaint neighborhood location, chic yet rustic decor and cozy ambiance, coupled with an amazing Valentine’s Day menu lended itself well to a delicious dinner and overall great night. The noise level was conservatively moderate, which seems more and more difficult to find lately. It was nice being able to carry on a conversation and not have to yell. Our server was attentive enough, but seemed a little distracted. I would say the only real negative part of our experience was parking. It’s very limited and the one drawback of Duo’s location, especially this time of year. We had to park on a nearby neighborhood street, which is not a huge deal except that the surrounding sidewalks were full of snow and ice, making for a bit of a treacherous walk when you’re wearing heels. All in all, Duo was a great place to celebrate Valentine’s Day and is equally suited for an everyday dining experience.

A menu that excited a vegetarian, a gluten-intolerant person, and an omnivore is a real pleasure. The dishes were wonderful. Dinner at Duo made a great evening.

Every time we go to Duo, whether for Brunch or Dinner, we wonder why we don't go more often. If we lived closer we would. The food is wonderful, the service is always impeccable and friendly. Our recommendations were spot on. We won't wait so long to return.

Everything from the food, to the cocktails, to the waitstaff was amazing. They clearly mark what is gluten free and are extremely accommodating when making adjustments based on that.

The food and service were excellent as were the seasonal cocktails. Perfect match for a cold winter’s night out. Some of the best we have had in Denver. The ambiance is warm with an open kitchen, exposed brick walls and weathered wood floors.

We will definitely be going back. If I were to make one recommendation...the actual tables and seats felt a little dated. Not a big deal in the overall scheme of this review as we care most about the Food and beverage but perhaps an area for future improvement.

The super bowl dinner special is always a treat! A great bargain and delicious food - the carrots & yams were superb and the trout was fantastic. We liked the chocolate cashew tart best of the desserts. Kate was a very pleasant and perfectly attentive server.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times but sadly the last time wasn’t a great experience. the server was not really into doing - I guess what he was supposed to do and the food was just ok.
It might take me some time until I will come back...

Met friends from out of town on a Monday night. The other customers were spread out enough to make conversation easy over a relaxed meal (3 hours) of very good food.

We enjoyed the first part of our dinner. Our waiter was fantastic. Very attentive and accommodating. The starters, the white bean and leek soup and the maple glazed beets were beautiful and delicious. When we got our entrees, we both were surprised. My husband got the pork chop and felt it was trying to do too much with the cabbage on top. My half chicken seemed heavy overall, and a bit bland. While everything else was delicious, we left disappointed in the entrees.

Our waitress was friendly and helpful in describing the specials and menu items. The food was excellent. We shared the delicious pappardelle with boar appetizer then our two entrees were duck prepared two ways and grilled octopus, both accompanied by delicious sides and vegetables. A perfect dinner!!
