I liked Duo. It was a fun place for friends to catch up. The pastry board, though it sounded lovely, was lacking in flavor. Everything else was good but there was nothing that stood out as awesome. I didn't think it was anything special but it was good and could be a one of those regular places that people go to have brunch

Went after a basketball game on a date with my wife. Tasty and creative food, knowlegible waitstaff, excellent service. Moderately pricey but expected for the quality.

Great place. Rented it out about 7 years ago for a wedding reception and came back recently for fun. The food was still terrific, great beer selection, the staff friendly and helpful and a great location.

Normalmente nos gusta nuestra experiencia aquí en Duo. Sin embargo, la comida no fue como ordenamos hoy; servimos huevos fritos en lado de mediana. Lo olvidó nuestro tocino. El servicio fue más lenta de que es normal para ellos. Pensamos que el Año Nuevo los afecta.

Lackluster meal for two people. Small portions for a high price. Had lobster cakes followed by ravioli with bison. The lobster cakes were above sub par and the ravioli was just a sample size. The entree consisted of two large scallops in a cream sauce that over powered the freshness of the scallops. Total cost was over two hundred dollars including drinks. Not impressed!

Really like this place. They have great cocktails. Fun to sit at the bar before dinner. Only issue was our steaks and fish were overcooked but the waitress was awesome and took the fish off. Everything else was fabulous. LOVED THE DUCK

If I am going to come down out of the hills for dinner, I want to have a memorable experience and Duo has never disappointed. On our recent visit, my wife ordered the bison and I ordered the pork chop - I have probably not ordered a chop in a restaurant in 25 years because I got tired of being served something that looked and tasted like it had been run over by a truck. Both dishes were outstanding. Our waitperson Jessica did a great job, she was attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. The food, the service, the ambience - Duo puts it all together.

we happily stumbled upon Duo when another spot couldn't take our reservation for an hour and a half. What a gift was bestowed upon us with this happy accident! Creative and beautiful cuisine was worth a slightly longer than expected weight but not a deterrent for a return visit in anyway. Staff were pleasant and attentive and the five of us each loved our meals! Quaint and cozy and nicely sized so noise was not an issue. We will be back for sure!

The lamb t-bone was very good, cooked perfect. The lamb ribs were not so good and seemed like an after thought that should not have been on the plate; tough and tasteless.
Dessert was excellent, choc lava cake.

Duo has been around the Highland neighborhood for quite some time. But it really is a top restaurant. It pre-dated the whole "Farm to Table" movement so it doesn't push that moniker, but it's one of the first and one of the best. The Bison I had was amazing! Cooked to perfect and so was the beet salad. I was on a very strict diet and they catered to my every need. I'll be back.
