    We had a good time at Duvals. I had the seasonal grilled grouper - very nice. My old fashioned was perfectly done - it was a nice night for me and my wife.

    Great food…..especially the fresh fish. Service was a tad slow and there was an annoying fruit fly that hovered our table!

    What a fantastic experience for 5 during our family vacation. We were seated at large table in the back which was comfortable and semi-private compared to the rest of the restaurant. Darien was a pleasure, she was friendly, happy and attentive. Food came out very fast in a wave of servers so we could all start eating together. Ahi tuna and any of the house made desserts were perfect but I’d recommend the bread pudding. Duvals management even called me the next day to make sure I was satisfied with my visit. I would definitely visit again.

    Enjoyed every dish offered. Had gazpacho which was so refreshing and plentiful. Should be a staple on the menu. Salmon was perfectly cooked. The chicken Parmigiano was a surprise and all of of guests nibbled greedily from another's plate. Long cake should not be missed- it's dense but yummy and the Chantilly cream is delicious. Our server was attentive and personable.

    We had a wonderful time with our dinner and didn't bother with the Summer Savor menu. Everything off the regular menu was delicious.

    I have eaten at Duval's many times, and the food has always been delicious, just as it was this time. The difference on this visit was the 55 minutes we waited to receive our dinners after ordering. Our server never returned to explain the delay, until we told her how long we had been waiting. Short-staffed? Forgotten order? Who knows. Luckily we made it to the theater on time, because we planned for something unforeseen.
