Thought we'd check this place out due to the good word on the street. The service was bad. Server was very inattentive but kept coming back with a smile, as in he was enjoying knowing that he was giving bad service, he never checked on us at all, nor asked about how the food was. For a restaurant charging $50-$100 per paella and $30+ entrees, you'd expect better service. The food was okay, tasted fine but nothing extraordinary, and the paella was mostly rice with a bell pepper and onion salad on top. I do not recommend this place, and will not be coming back.
I absolutely love this place. The vibe is great.  The flavor of each dish is perfect. The wine list is short but offers good wines. Every time I'd take a bite, the flavors would explode. Absolute deliciousness!  Great service. Easy access from Bart. Only downside, gin and (homemade) tonic nothing special.
I've dined at Duende for dinner twice now, and both times were not as I expected. The folks working here are SO wonderful and friendly, truly amazing staff. The food however is a solid medium. We ordered Patatas Bravas, nothing special. The CALABACÍN a la PLANCHA was underwhelming with a soggy, soft, pine nut (highly recommend toasting the pine nuts). We ordered a bree cheese that was delicious, just thought it should have been served with more toast, instead we paid $1.50 for a side order of toast. And the rabbit on toast with arugula was okay. Last time I dined, my husband and I ordered their known squid ink pallela, and I found it bland. My G+T last night had no flavor of gin, it tasted (and felt) like I was drinking a tonic water on ice. The presentation and service is wonderful, the food and beverages were sub-par.
