Food was incredible. The apps are a little small for what they cost, but pack a huge punch in flavor. The service felt slightly off, but was still very good and attentive.

Everything was really good and special. The only hiccup was the kitchen was very slow getting the orders out.

Hadn't gone there since the beforetimes. Always a great place. Quality of prep and serve, and attention to local/sustainable are as good as ever. Nice to have the evening outdoor seating now. Pleasant, and felt more connected to the neighborhood to dine on the sidewalk.

We live only 5 blocks away from Duo, so have had the pleasure of eating there many times. It is always great and this latest visit was no exception. Several of us at the fried chicken. Crispy, crackly skin and moist meat. Delicious!

We sat outside on a Sunday morning and it was just lovely. Great food, lovely service, tasty drinks, wonderful coffee. Duo is a staple for a reason. A stellar neighborhood joint.

Amazing food at a decent price for $30-40+ plates. It seemed that they were slightly understaffed, which is a common issue I hear the food service industry is in.

It was so sad to see Duo go down in quality with their food. They have always been one of the best restaurants in Highlands but tonight the served soggy lamb with frozen carrots that had no flavor. The salmon had cold onions. Duo has always taken pride in serving the freshest food but tonight they fell short. They used to play jazz music but now they play no music. The waiters Did not seem interested in serving their food at all. I hope Duo returns to their original missoion of serving fresh flavorful food again.

Eating here is always a wonderful experience and last night was no different. It just makes for a magical evening. The food is fabulous and the service fantastic. And it's so nice to be out on a Saturday night and actually be able to hear the people you are dining with. Highly recommend.

Both my husband and I commented on the heavily salted food. The sauce on my husband’s steak and the farro with my trout both were overpowered by salt. The dessert, the tres leches cake, however, was fabulous!
