One of the best brunches we’ve had in Denver. Excellent food, great service, and reasonably priced.

Duo always delivers. The food and service are consistently from very good to excellent. Last night’s meal was no exception, with attentive, timely, very professional, and friendly wait staff, and delicious meals for my friend and I. It’s more intimate size, comfortable, unique and friendly decor, and all the plusses mentioned above make Duo one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. Great little neighborhood as well, although I’m concerned that some of the charm of LoHi along Zuni near 32nd may be overshadowed with what appears to be a large building project. Oh well. Duo probably won’t suffer, even if the neighborhood does to a degree.

Hadn’t been to Duo for dinner in a while. Was initially disappointed as the fish had changed from what was online. The menu was small and we were unsure what to order, so we asked our server for recommendation. We had the pea pancakes with pink Florida shrimp to start. Sounded strange and would not have ordered but for the recommendation. They were AMAZING! I had the pork chop and my wife ordered the Lion’s Mane mushroom entree. Both were excellent. We had the lemon drop dessert with blueberry compote. It is not to be missed. Overall and at every step it was excellent!

The past few times we've gone to Duo (pre & post pandemic) we just haven't thought the food was as good as it once was. Don't know if it's the menu, the chef or what.

My manager took her clients there. She was very pleased with the restaurant in all ways. She was visiting clients in Denver, so had never been there before.
She will absolutely return when she visits Denver again.

I am not sure what I was expecting of Duo for brunch but I came away ultimately disappointed. The food was acceptable-but not exceptional, and definitely NOT worth what we paid for it. The dishes didn't POP. I've had better brunches elsewhere for sub-$100 (drinks included). The value for what is provided just isn't there.

The bartender was a delight and did make us good drinks. I'd have to say she was a highlight for sure.

Sadly as much as I wanted to like Duo because of its convenient proximity to my home I won't be returning.

The quality of the food and service is truly excellent. It’s a place that makes you feel at home while paying attention to the details that matter. We selected a French wine with an excellent price point that we had never heard of and it had amazing quality for the price. We enjoyed the butter lettuce salad, the mussels which were in a broth we wanted to take a bath in and the pork chop. We will be back.

Our experience was top-notch. Service was warm and hospitable with fun surprises along the way. It was our anniversary and they really made us feel special. The food was the best we have had in a very long time. All the components of each dish were cooked and seasoned to make every bite delicious.

Thank you to everyone at Duo for making our night the best it could be! We will be back soon!!

Food is great, ambience is nice, tables are spaced out decently inside. The only complaints were service was a little slow (over 30 minutes to get our drinks) and food seems priced a little high. But we will be back for sure!

Nice place, mediocre food. The service was pretty meh. Got charged for a terrible cocktail that the waiter recommended and was not drunk. Also a request for more bread was rewarded with a look of....disdain? Annoyance? Definitely the kind of place where the staff makes you feel like they're doing you a favor by serving you. Also avoid the outdoor dining area at all costs. During the hour or so we were there we were treated to a couple road rage incidents and cars revving their engines. It was literally louder than some car meets I've been too. A request to be moved was met with another awkward look, so we decided to grin and bear it. That said, we definitely won't be going back.
