Owner Brian Piccini and Chef/Owner Christopher Coombs are proud of their award winning Restaurant & Bar, Deuxave in the Back Bay. The inspiration behind the restaurant’s American Nouveau Cuisine is seasonality, with a focus on working with the finest farms and purveyors, sourcing out the freshest, local ingredients and amplifying their magnificence. The cuisine is strongly rooted in the nouvelle techniques of contemporary French cuisine, married with the splendor of American ingredients in a refined, but casual setting. Deuxave’s (pronounced doo-ave) name plays homage to its location at the corners of Commonwealth Ave and Massachusetts Ave.

One member of the wait staff asked us if we were ready to have our plates cleared. That was fine, and we said no. Another staff member came by about 2-3 minutes later and asked the same thing. Being asked a second time so soon after the first question was a bit annoying

Best restaurant in Boston! Food was delicious. Try the cod and the duck. Service was excellent. Outside seating is perfect.

A lovely experience for anyone who delights in the art of food, service, and ambiance. Tucked away from the bustle of Newbury Street, this is the place to dine, knowing that every detail will be spectacular! ~RW

Wow! The food was phenomenal. It was a little bit challenging being a vegetarian. But I would go back. We also love their other restaurant D bar in Dorchester!

The chef was bold in sending out delicious surprises that kept us amused and intrigued. The servers from the doorman, throughout, were delightful and friendly, bordering on being over-attentive, but we left there very happy and wanting to go back.

Been patronizing Deuxave since it opened. Sat outside with heaters during Covid. Was one of my favorite upscale restaurants in Boston. Dinner last night was horrendous. Server only came to the table when she wanted to try to sell us something. Ordered the duck, which I always order. Wanted it medium as I always do as I like duck breast red & firm. Server said medium would take 50 mins. to prepare. Huh? How long for med rare, I asked. 45 mins. Why? Had to ask repeatedly for the bread we wanted with cocktails. Salads were fantastic. An hour later, the duck emerged gray, dried out, lukewarm, tasteless, sides tasteless also. The confit apps that my guests ordered as their mains were over-salted. Server never came to check on whether we were happy with our food. Busboy clearing plates was only one to ask how we enjoyed our dinner.

Deuxave had escaped my notice until this dining experience, and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. The food was otherworldly, the cocktails were balanced and fun, and the service was superb (efficient & professional, knowledgeable, and fun). Will look forward to returning.

This is the third time I have brought friends to Deuxave. Every visit has been a 100% success. The food, service, creative cocktails, presentation, everything . . . just perfect. I have eaten outside all 3 times and it was lovely. I have recommended Deuxave to many people. It is a bit pricey, but worth it.

They were a little presumptuous, telling me I must give up my table after an hour and 15 minutes of dining. I didn’t see a rush to get in. People started leaving around 8:30 pm and no one new was coming in.. Wednesday night.

Service started strong but began to fail. I was left sitting for 20 minute stretches. The neighboring table got my dessert. By the time I left, I was doing a slow burn, even though the staff was thanking me.

I would rate the food good. The Foie Gras was heavenly.

This place seems to put on airs as a top restaurant. It’s not.

First time back at a favorite dining spot - so glad Deuxave has survived the pandemic limitations. We took guests from NY - had requested out-door seating, but it was a rainy cold night - the restaurant could accommodate everyone indoors. It was a lively crowd and our foursome had a great time. I'll definitely go back, with or without guests.

Crudo was good but mint was slightly over-used. Duck confit was perfectly cooked and quite amazing. For the main dish, the chicken and duck were very good but halibut was slightly dry.

Very disappointing experience.

We were a group of 6. The service was very slow to serve us.
10 minutes after we ordered we were told that they only had some of the apps and not all. So we had to review the menu to order something different. One of the apps was under seasoned, we asked for salt and lemon and it took 10 minutes to get it.
One of the main courses was the duck and it was dry and overdone. That was sent back and 10 minutes later the waitress said it would take 25 minutes to get a replacement duck entree and suggested we order something different. So a different entree was ordered and 20 minutes later after the rest of the party had finished dinner the one replacement was finally served.
We asked for a 2nd bottle of wine and we were told they did not have the same bottle we needed to pick a different bottle.

It is a pricey place and one expects the service and experience to be top notch, but clearly it was not the case for us.
While a few of the dishes were good others were clearly not, the experience and the way it was handled was poor.
I would not recommend it.

The homemade tagliatelle and Bolognaise sauce were heavenly, as were the perfect scallops! The buratta appetizer was also fantastic!
