Love this place. It's nice to be able to get take out when I'm solo, or take a bunch of friends and have a raucous time. I love the creamy lime dressing on the tacos, and how full they pack them. The gilled fish are the best--very fresh. The quesadillas here are unlike anywhere: very thick and juicy...delicious! The menu is very extensive so everyone can find something they like. Try the horchata too!

Went: Last year, July, to celebrate the engagement of my brother and sister in law. I'm reviewing now b/c I just joined the site. Even under the threat of death, I would never stand in the line of this RACIST establishment . It ruined the engagement party of two newlyweds to be. At midnight on a warm Saturday night, a group of 15 well dressed black young men and women were denied entrance to Duvet due to the "inappropriate" attire of my brother and bro in law (their attire: khakis, muscle shirts, and open flannels shirts, no sneakers). This may have been the case, however I had arrived there around 11 and saw men in MORE casual attire easily stroll in. At the time, I immediately posited this theory: it was prime time and the bouncer (who was black himself) didn't want a bunch of black people walking in. As we stood aside, my sister in law started balling and screaming at the bouncers. She was distraught because people had drove for hours in order to come to this party because the wedding list was filled. This would be their only chance to party with the bride and groom. If attire had been the case, then the bouncer (who looked horrible...receding hairline and backlength dreaklocks...not the best presentation of beauty) would have denied those two individuals entrance, not the entire entourage. As I stood to the side, I noticed another group of 5 scantily clad, full figured, black women who were celebrating a bachelorette party. The bride to be has actually signed a contract already to gain entrance, but was denied at the door. Yes, a helping of RACISM was on the platter that night. The damage was done...we went to jam packed 40/40 but could not genuinely enjoy ourselves as the discrimination to which we had been subjected had already placed melancholy in our hearts. My closing argument: Boycott this establishment! Duvet deserves to be shut down. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

i have been to quite a few events hosted at hiro, and i have had good times and blah blah times. the atmosphere is great, but it really depends on the event. often the crowd and the staff can be rather snooty, but if you catch them on a good day you'll have a great time. drinks are expensive, and on a packed night expect to wait almost 20 minutes to even get to the bar to order.
