The sautéed Polenta on Lamb Ragu appetizer was outstanding (almost a meal in itself). The Bison special was very tender.

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.

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!
