Who knew sitting at the bar would be so amazing. Great food (need more Veg options) wonderful cocktails and of course the service at the bar just made everything perfect. Nicole offered options on menu items and makes the perfect martini.... will definitely be 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!!

DUO continues to put out creative and high quality cuisine in a fabulous neighborhood restaruant. Happy to see Tyler in the Kitchen and Bobby behind the bar. Unlike so many other restaurants that have come and gone, or changed hands, DUO continues to sustain their place at the top of my list for favorite Denver restaurants.

Duo has always been our go-to place, but we've commented to ourselves the past few times that it just isn't where it was. I think it's hard to maintain consistency over time. I hope they can get some inspiration going into the new year.

Christmas Eve three-course prix fixe dinner. Hard to decide among the selections, but with three diners we were able to try almost everything. Great food, great service!

The mussels and scallop appetizer was so buttery and melted in my mouth. The duck was rich in flavor but also tender. Apple pie was so warm and tasted like autumn. Very fresh food and wonderful service!

My second time visiting the restaurant. The food is top notch--some of the best in Denver. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. They made special blue cheese stuffed olives for me and an espresso martini that wasn't on the menu. All around 5 stars!

Duo hosted our brunch party for 10 people. It was a fabulous breakfast, server was great and all in all a great experience. When in the area, we will return!

We ordered the pork chop and the Duo of Duck, the pork was a little tough, possibly over cooked. The duck breast was amazing but the leg was very dry.
Everything else was great.

From the moment you step in the door, this quaint little restaurant hits it on the nose. The hostess was accommodating, the bartender chatty and nice, the service excellent and the food incredibly well done and tasteful. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Everything you’d expect in a Highlands brunch. Good food, hip fun atmosphere. We liked the pastry board and pork Benedict in particular. Would definitely go again.

As usual, brunch was delicious, cocktails were perfect and service was excellent. No one rushed us out the door either which is always nice at brunch - we were able to catch up and enjoy at a leisurely pace! We will be back!

Excellent service. Attentive to special needs (vegetarian daughter and son with food allergies, also daughter on crutches). Great with my children.

We loved the roasted carrots and yams appetizer. I liked the white bean soup (held the bacon jam) but I would have liked a smaller serving size so I could have tried more things. My husband's salad looked great and he ate all of it. Usually there is something he leaves on the plate.

I didn't love my short ribs. They were very tender but I do not order red meat out very often and forgot how fatty short ribs can be. Others at the table loved the mussels, Sea Bass and pork chop. My son had the sea bass and commented that he did not know what all he was eating but it all tasted great (a variety of veggies and chick peas that accompanied the fish).

A pleasant brunch seated next to the window on a bright sunny morning. The waiter was very friendly and efficient. We were a little taken aback that the fruit bowl was unavailable so early in the morning.

The food was just excellent. Such great flavoring and creativity. Nice portions as well. After a slow start (they were busy) the service was very good. Because it was a week day, noise level was very reasonable. May be noisy when they are full. We like the feel of the place. We will return! Love this place.
