Dinner, drinks & dessert were incredible! Each stage of dinner better than the next - although the chowder was pretty hard to top!

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.

The food was outstanding and we had a lovely birthday celebration for two in our party. Our server Nicole was terrific, even though she was overwhelmed tending bar, as well.

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.

Duo went out of their way to make sure we were seated in an area we were comfortable in. There were 5 of us and our server Alison was amazing. She was efficient, so friendly and helpful and a delight to have as our server. The food was delicious. We had the mussels, gnocchi, peach salad, chopped salad, fried chicken, pork chop, pannise and lamb meatballs, all delicious!! The skillet cornbread dessert was out of this world!! Can’t wait to go back.

First of all our server and host for the night was fantastic. He made us feel comfortable and had such a great sense of humor, that he made the night. The food has always been great here and it did not disappoint. We tried the speciality appetizer, had fantastic meals, and the cornbread dessert was so awesome. It is being Wowed like crazy on our facebook post. This was an evening taking my daughter out to relax and visit, and it was just the perfect atomosphere.

Went for brunch, first time. Was great! It’s cute, feels a bit like a southern accent to me being from the SE. I got the pork Benedict and friend got the chicken Sammie. Both delish.

Food was great. Given the circumstances, service was not as good as it should be. Like most restaurants, it seems budget does not allow for more staff. A little frustrating for diners. Server did her best and was very friendly.

We have eaten at Duo since it opened. We love it - it’s quaint and delish. I usually check the menu ahead of time as it does change seasonally. They normally have a fish option, which is what we prefer so sometimes I make sure it’s a fish we like. But they always have fun and fabulous apps! Plate sizes are small and so are the apps - but that’s what we like so we can order a few. Anyhow this visit was AMAZING. The food was so good - came out super hot too. For four of us we honestly had like one of each app, our entrees and one of each dessert. Our waiter was phenomenal (but I don’t even remember his name). He seemed to have quite a few tables but was on top of everything. Just a fabulous night all around.

We have been a steady customer since the restaurant opened.. The food and service has steadily gone down hill for the last two years. It is so sad that such a good store has gone down hill so bad.. We were there Friday night and I checked in with open table for a 6 o'clock time and it said the only time was 5.30 or 8.30 so we picked 5.45 and when we got there there was only one other table with a customer give me a break this is terrible we were the second table in the entire store but they said they were booked. To make matters worse the waitress let us sit for about ten minutes before she came to our table when there was only two tables occupied an when she finally came over we ordered a bottle of wine which all of the wines there now are no name wines so you don't know what you are getting and we waited for another ten minutes to get our wine. I had the special buffalo and the cut was a cheap piece of tough meat that I could not even eat. It is so sad that this restaurant went down hill so bad as it was our favorite place to dine but we will not be returning. no one cares if you are having a good meal or not.. I could not take any of my friends there as it is in the tank and will not be able to survive as no one there cares if you have a good meal or not..my name is Tony ficco 303 887 4753 if you really care about this store feel free to call me.. This is so sad don't go to this store.. We had a derry queen on the way home and it was better than our entire experience there.. is this sad or not.. what are these people thinking as I know now why the store is empty. please do not go there.. If they want to stay alive they should care about their service and most of all the food and wine.. I am finished giving them another try.. The waiter that always tells us hello just snubbed us as if we did not even exist. very ban expensive experience..
