We ate at the bar and the fish was excellent and the bar tender Amelia was a joy. She was pleasant and knowledgeable. As busy as she was she made everyone feel like you were the most important person at the bar

Tried to go to Owens and it was packed checked our trip advisor and found Duvals. Ate at the bar because there weren’t any tables. The bartender Amelia was so pleasant and sweet . Loved chatting with her and her great personality . She made the dining expense amazing not to mention the food was to die for . The seafood bouillabaisse was so incredible . You must go to Duvals.

My water glass was never left empty this is a sign of a good service but they went above and beyond. Our waitress Aly was exceptional and the manager also stopped by to make sure everything was perfect. When I mentioned it with a 6th anniversary and we chose this restaurant they had a surprise for us as well. The food was superb and the taste exemplified the care that went into making it. It was a short 19 minute walk from the van weasel Center where we had gone to see a play. I will return!

We were very pleased with the food and wine selection. The mussels were a favorite. Chris B. did a great job as our server. Very helpful and gracious. The entire staff was courteous and made us feel welcome. I would definitely return.
