Great food and staff. Had a fun birthday party there and they even made a special delicious cake. A little noisy.

We’ve eaten @ Duo many times and this was possibly our best meal there ever. The bison was melt in the mouth tender, the cornmeal crusted trout perfect and the warm beet salad fabulous! Plus our waitress was efficient and professional. A wonderful anniversary dinner!

For over 10 years DUO has been one of our TO GO to places. We've spent our first anniversary there and our 10th and quite a few in between. Farm to table practices, local sourcing as much as is possible makes it a Denver and Colorado gem! Service is top notch and always spot on.

DUO - PLEASE keep doing what you do!

We had a fabulous dinner experience at Duo. The food was outstanding and we loved the attention to detail. My daughter is gluten, dairy, corn and soy free and she enjoyed her meal
better than any she has had eating out in a long time. We were a party of four, celebrating
a birthday. It was a special place, a real gem. We will return!

Went to Duo for brunch with my husband on a Sunday. It was great! Really cute space! We had good service. Our Bloody Mary’s were yummy, and strong (in a good way)! The food was awesome. My only thing I would have to say is the portions could have been a little bigger, but overall our experience was excellent! We will definitely be back in the future and will recommend to anyone looking for a great brunch spot!

I visited Duo with a group of 6 girlfriends for a Bachelorette weekend. They sat us quickly (we had an 11am reservation), and they couldn't have been nicer. It was the best service we received in Denver all weekend, and our waiter Dylan was fantastic. They even let us stay at our table and chit chat for a while over a bottle of wine, without rushing us. The food was great too! Highly recommend.

Can’t say enough great things about Duo! It was recommended to me by a friend and I booked a table for my birthday brunch :) the food was so tasty and fresh. I loved every bite! Our waiter was so kind and easy going. He was very attentive and never left our water glasses empty. Overall it was the highlight meal of my trip!

I very much enjoyed Duo and the only reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars was that it felt crowded and loud. I usually don’t notice things like that, and it may be that my party was seated at a table in the very center of the room which didn’t give us much space behind each chair and made the noise level seem louder. I had been here for brunch several times and it was the first time I had tried it for dinner. While I enjoyed it, and the food and service were very good, I think I prefer it as a brunch location.

Delicious food, excellent service and a cozy atmosphere makes Duo my new go-to for dinner with the hubz in the Highlands. The menu is carefully crafted yet simple making it easy to decide what best fits your appetite for that meal. The noise level is low to moderate which is a huge win for me and anyone else who doesn't want to have to yell across a table so your date can hear you. I have already recommended Duo to several friends and will most definitely be back!

Went here on a whim late on a Friday night for a date and had a great time. The food was great (1st time there so they recommended the fried chicken, which we paired with the lamb meatballs - both very good) and the atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for to start the night. The service was about as good as it gets - she was always there when we needed anything, however, not constantly pestering the table. Recommend for a date and even family dinners (21+ up family).

Great food and service at Duo. The melon market salad with mint and fresno chilis was delectable. So was the seafood appetizer that I had as a main course, delicious smoked whitefish and salmon and a nicely grilled prawn, accompanied by a coupe of tart pickle and corn relishes and nice rye toast. My spouse's salmon was tasty too. Unfortunately, we were there in the throes of the Saturday night rush, making it uncomfortably loud in the dining room. If you're not into shouting, I recommend dining on a quite evening before or after the main rush.

We always love our meals at Duo. This time, our son was visiting and he is gluten and dairy free. They could not have been more knowledgeable and accmmodating! When I made the reservation, they made a note so our server was fuklly prepared with the allergy free options they could offer. We all loved the appetizers, our main course and dessert.
