    Took my girlfriend to this restaurant, and was not dissapointed. Great ambiance, nice music with a Frank Sinatra vibe. Started with making our own tour around the Mission Inn, then got seated with a Stella, Got the porterhouse steak ($42) and she got the swordfish ($30) amazing mashed potatoes ($6) and topped it off with the cheesecake ( $7). Bill was about $114 and well worth it. Recomend for that romantic type date.

    My wife and I and another couple dine at the mission inn multiple times a year but at Duane's just once a year. We buy gift cards for mother's day but use them later on in the year. The setting and the food were vintage Duane's perfect in every way. Our service this year though was not up to standard. Our serve,r I believe her name is Steve, had our area plus a big area in another section. a large party and because of that couldn't give us the service she should have. Had to wait a long time just to get her attention to order desert. This was the first time this has happened to us at Duane's and it took part of the glow off the evening. Would still recommend it though. A very classy place to dine

    We have been eating a lot of fine dining lately and we extremely disappointed in the food. My wife had the lobster bisque and filet and lobster tail for entree. The soup was good. The lobster tail and the filet were both dry and flavorless. I had the caprese salad and the trio of tenderloins. The salad was good flavor. The trio was decent at best. Basically the way we felt was the food was thoughtless and uninspired. The places we have been frequenting lately.. Feels like there is an artist in the kitchen. We definitely did not feel that at duanes. If your looking for good food in the ie.. I'd look elsewhere

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Duane's. The ambiance was exactly what we were hoping for. There was ample room between tables and the high ceilings meant the dining room remained comfortably quiet. That and the lighting made for a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. Service was impeccable and I never had to worry about my water going empty. The timing between courses was good, something many restaurants forget to pay attention to. As for the food, it was delicious and cooked to perfection. I had the tenderloin trio and my wife had the scallops, both of which I would recommend without hesitation. Portions are good and I left full but not stuffed. I highly recommend Duane's, they helped make our anniversary special.

    The service was impeccable(David). The chateaubriand was elegant and soo tender. The shrimp scampi was a large serving for the already large shrimp. Personally , I like shrimp cooked a little less time so that they are more tender. The crème brule was fantastic as was the apple desert.

    WE SPENT AN OVER-NIGHT AT THE MISSION INN AND MADE SURE WE HAD SUPPER AT DUANE'S. IT WAS OUR 45TH ANNIVERSARY AND DAVID [OUR WAITER] AND HIS TEAM WERE TERRIFIC. WE HAD Châteaubriand FOR TWO FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS AND IT WAS EXCELLENT. AT THE END OF THE MEAL, WE WERE PRESENTED A DESSERT AND IT WAS VERY GOOD. AS FOR THE PRICES, THEY WERE NOT OUT OF LINE FOR THE QUALITY AND SERVICE RECEIVED. IN FACT THEY WERE QUITE REASONABLE. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND DUANE'S.

    What a place! It's old-school steakhouse fine dining. Service was impeccable as was the food. My wife had Halibut and I had the three steak tenderloin. We were both extremely pleased with our meals. My steaks were possibly the most tender I had ever eaten. We will return again and again.

    Spent a lovely evening and another birthday at Duane's. Service was flawless and the food was superb as always. We also discovered that on mondays and tuesdays, all wines costing $95 or more are 50% off. This means that our bottle of Far Niente Chardonnay cost only $47.50, or about what you would pay at Costco! Their wine list is the best in the inland empire and one of the best in Southern California. Oh, did I mention they make a killer martini? Annette, our server, was amazingly always there when we needed her, but never intrusive. Not inexpensive, but a great value. Enjoy!

    Duane's is such a beautiful restaurant, set in the Mission Inn. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is romantic, and the service is on point. Steak lovers will especially love Duane's. The meet was cooked to perfection. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had brought our 15 year old son with us. The service would be considered to be formal but the staff was very friendly and gave my son respect as well. We enjoyed our meal and will be back!

    We took friends there on a night when the place was overwhelmed. Took a good thirty minutes to get our cocktails. Our meals, when they finally arrived, were all excellent. Then another eternity to get desert and the check. The whole thing took over three hours. In spite of all this, we will go back sometime. The food is that good.

    My husband and I were married at the Mission Inn and had our reception in Duane's private dining room. With that said, the restaurant holds special meaning for us. The restaurant didn't disappoint. I had a huge, scrumptious lobster tail and my husband had the halibut special. Generous portion sizes coupled with great sides made for a great meal. We had a few tastes of different wines before deciding on a lovely Chardonnay. The wine list is extensive so there is a guaranteed something for everyone. We went overboard to conclude our meal with the chocolate soufflé, but it was chocolate soufflé and our resistance level was non-existent. Kudos to our waitstaff for providing exemplary service.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Duane's Saturday night. We've eaten here many times over the years but we ordered the Chateaubriand for the first time. You must order it for at 2. The tenderloin was Perfect-absolutely a perfect medium rare inside with a nice seared outside. They sliced the steak tableside which was nice and kept the inside warm. The lobster bisque was excellent as well, the best I've had in a while anywhere. My only complaint is that the "roasted" veggies, which are part of a traditional chateaubriand, were overcooked. The asparagus was good and still crisp, but the garlic, onion, and carrots were overcooked, lacked nice color and texture and were inedible for me, and I love roasted garlic and onion.

    I was actually disappointed in the quality of meet I had there. I ordered the porterhouse and it tasted like something I would buy at Norms for breakfast. Also, upon checking in with the host for my reservation I had set-up with open table they advised me that I didn't have a reservation. Luckily, the restaurant was not busy and we were able to be sat. For the price of the food I would give it a thumbs down just based off of quality. As for the ambience it was quotes nice place. Restaurant server was amazing but can't say the Hotel staff came even close. What a nightmare.

    Duane's is the ideal spot for special occasions or anytime you want delicious food. Try the Chateaubriand for Two. It is perfectly cooked and comes with veggies and potatoes. An almost complete meal...you can add a salad, but you want room for the entree. We skip the appetizers and salads, but leave room for dessert!

    Duane's was Up Scale dining at reasonable (up scale) prices. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The service started off a bit chaotic as multiple people came to our table and drink orders were taken twice. We were unclear as to who was our actual server. But once they ironed that pour, service was the perfect combination of attentive, and unobtrusive. My wife and I had the Chateaubriand and it was perfectly cooked. The couple with us had the trio of filet and liked it a lot. We were all too full to attempt desert. Total tab for 4 (including the drinks) was $218. If/when we're back in Riverside, we will be returning,

    Celebrated my 40th Birthday here. The food was great. We had the Lobster tempura, which was good. It did not taste like lobster. It had the texture of lobster, but not the taste. The sauce was wonderful. For the main course had the Chateaubriand. Amazing, it was finished table side and everything on the plate was wonderful. Had the Bananas Foster for dessert. First time I have ever not had it served table side. It was good, but would have been better with the 2005 Far Niente Dolce 375ml that was listed but not available on the wine list. Truthfully cannot go wrong at Duane's.
