Fabulous food and great, attentive service from a very knowledgable team. Smoked confit duck leg to start accompanied by a seasonal kale salad, loin of lamb main course was just perfect, the only downside - no room for dessert! Fantastic wine list, my choice of an Oregon Pinot Noir was delicious. A perfect celebration location.

Excellent food. The French onion soup is well worth it. It's reduced for 9 hours and thus has a condensed flavor. It's delicious but very filling. The tagliatelle bolognese is superb too. Our sommelier was very knowledgeable and helpful. Nice selection but the wines are pricey. Plan ahead with a reservation.

When we pulled up to the curb at Deuxave my first thought was that it reminded me of a chic restaurant that one would see in Paris, with an inviting and romantic air about it. To our delight, the service was impeccable and the food superb. An innovative blend of French cuisine and the best of local and regional ingredients,... More

We have dined here on several occasions, and each one has been special. The service is excellent, as is the food preparation, presentation and quality. Starting with the amuse bouche, to the salads and the entrees. All were outstanding. Pricing has increased, so this is not the place to go on a budget. With a medium-priced wine, figure $100 each...

We had a family dinner for four last week at Deuxave. The food was excellent I had the halibut as did my wife . Our daughter had the steak which she also thought was excellent. Our server was very friendly and of great help. He and my daughter had a great conversation regarding our wine selection. Pricey but worth the... More

Long overdue review of our favorite French restaurant in Boston. We went again this past Friday, the food is amazing and the service impeccable (thanks Mark!). Over the years we have tried pretty much everything on the menu, and it is all so good that this is a restaurant where you hope they won't change the menu. There are some... More

We had a fantastic experience at Deuxave. The restaurant has an excellent corner location on Commonwealth, and has outdoor dining. The dining room is elegant but not pretentious. The food is superb, and the service exceptional and well-paced for a relaxing dinner. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful, and knew each menu item thoroughly which helped us decide what...

My friend visited me this weekend and I took her to Deuxave for dinner. They have an abundant choices of starters and entrees. We went for the lobster gnocchi and duck confit for starters and both were delicious. My friend had the scallop for main course and I had the duck breast which for me is never a bad choice.... More

Deuxave did not disappoint. Reviews were right on. Food selection was very good, and presentation was well worth the walk from downtown. The duck was exceptional and the fish dish that evening also good. Decent portions, not too much and not a finger plate either. Desert and coffee also were memorable. Service first class.

Third time, and three is a charm: great restaurant for the most satisfiying, rich, yummy food in a contemporary elegant atmosphere with low ambient noise, great to have a conversation at a table of four, nobody has to scream. Perfect brioche and house-churned butter, appetizer of duck confit is fantastic, so is beef tartare, foie gras and lobster. For main... More

Co-Owners Brian Piccini, Executive Chef Christopher Coombs & General Manager/Sommelier Jason Irving 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.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
