Diner Reviews
  • "This is my second time eating here. Love it looking forward to my next visit...."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Duane's, located at the Mission Inn in Riverside, is a wonderful place to go especially for special occasions. Being a 4 star restaurant, expect to shell out a lot of bucks, but the food was superbly prepared. My ribeye was perfection. Normally, I can get through half of a steak but I finished all 16 ounces. I also ordered a side dish of cut green beans which was delicious. They used a chili sauce that gave the beans a kick without being overpowering. I had a chocolate hazelnut cake for dessert which was one of the most satisfying desserts I have ever had. The desserts are made on the premises, assuring freshness. (Most restaurants' desserts are shipped in.)"

  • "The sides are large, which is nice to split with my wife. The steak was cooked perfectly , but lacked in flavor. Not up to parr for PRIME quality.ruth chris has a much tastier steak. But all and all a very nice experience"

  • "We stop at the Bar 54 for a drink and the nice ambiance they had going with their live music, the server at the bar was a bit dry then we got a second waitress that seen more pleasing. As we went into Duane’s their staff was very nice you can feel them welcome you, the sommelier was very enjoyable everything and everybody was very nice one thing I can say that their busboy needs some polishing at the table, he will cross his arm on our faces a couple of times trying to pick up the plates from the table other than that it was a very nice experience. NOTE their bread putting desert it’s excellent !!!! This is kind of the food of the Gods!!!"

  • "This is how it felt from the moment we entered the lobby. What a wonderful place to celebrate our special evening. The staff was professional, friendly, and very patient going to great lengths to see to our comfort and satisfaction. Then add to the mix the beautiful presentation and deliciousness of the food itself, and you have a real surprise gem of a restaurant. Glad I found you and I will definitely come again."

  • "had the ribeye. It was one third fat. almost every other bite tasted fatty. My wife did enjoy her filet and lobster"

  • "Duane's is a wonderful special occasion restaurant. The food and service could not be better. Everyone at the restaurant seemed focused on making our dining experience wonderful. The menu selection has something for everyone. I would definitely return...probably again and again."

  • "I get nervous when I'm about to spend $150+ for a meal for two, but this restaurant earned the highest marks in every category. Ambiance: Perfect lighting. Soft, live music wafting in from another room. Beautiful decor. Gorgeous table setting. Food: I've eaten all over the world and thought you had to go to Chicago for a perfect steak, but this was the best I've ever had. Service: Impeccable. From the hostess greeting to the wait-staff, all their attention was on us. I even got a follow-up phone call the next day to make sure we were pleased and was asked if there was anything they could have done to make it even better. If you can afford luxury dinning, do not miss Duane's at the Mission Inn."

  • "The meat was outstanding as you would expect . The chocolate soufle was also outstanding. The veggies were so so, Coffee was not hot and did not show up until after we were done with dessert. The last issue was with the wine list. I made a selection of an 08 zin but when the waitress brought it to the table it was a 2010 and she left it to me to notice this detail. I refused it and asked to see the list again. I made a second selection and was told this too was not available. At that point I asked them to make a recommendation. time to update the wine list?? All and all our experience was good but the difference between good and excellent is all about the details and for how Duane's markets itself it should be excellent."

  • "Simply amazing....fantastic staff, great food. We had the best date dinning experience at Duane's ever. We followed up with live music just outside the restaurant. What a wonderful night. Thank you for the experience."

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. If you get a chance, try the steak Diane...very difficult to find it but Duane's does it right. The ambiance is a little on the dark side, but for romantic dining, it is a plus."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It has a beautiful ambiance in and around the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I would definitely go there again."

  • "My party consisted of 5 people, we each ordered something different and had a bite of each plate. Delicious. Didn't go wrong with any plate choice. I ordered the chef's halibut special. Fantastic."

    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "WE HAVE BEEN HERE MULTIPLE TIMES AND ALWAYS FIND THE FOOD AND SERVICE WONDERFUL. WE ALWAYS ASK FOR THE SAME TABLE AND WAITER SO WE KNOW WE WILL HAVE WONDERFUL SERVICE. WE HAVE HAD ALTERNATE WAITERS AND THEY ARE ALSO WONDERFUL."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This is definitely a beautiful and grand restaurant for special occasion! I went here for the first tome with my wife and let me tell you we were blow away. At the entrance, we were so pleasantly greeted by a wonder host who sat us at a table for two. Our server then came by and explained their menu and gave us ample time to decide. We ordered porterhouse and ny steak, both of which were to die for! We enjoyed our time here, the restaurant speaks of elegance and volume, we would definitely come back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "My husband and I enjoyed our dinner experience. The only complaint was that the restaurant had placed itself as business casual, but people in blue jeans and sweatshirts were allowed."

  • "Having dinner at Duane's was very comfortable and relaxed. I felt compelled to enjoy my 2 glasses of wine with my meal of filet and lobster. The food was excellent and the attentive staff was wonderful. I will be coming back on a bi-annual pilgrimage, or sooner if possible."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Everything my husband and I asked for was delivered. David, our server and his crew was superb. We enjoyed every bit of it. Great experience. The scenery was excellent. Our table location was placed perfectly. Thank you Duane's for the memories."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The taste of the steak and the price are about the same as other high end steak house. Attentive service, We were there to celebrate my niece 19th birthday and the reason we went there because my niece is a student at UCR so it was convenience for her. The restaurant did not offer her a complimentary birthday cake. Over all experience was acceptable but we will stick with other national brand steak house such as Ruth's Chris or Morton."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The most excellent Rib Eye Steak I've ever had, also the creamed spinach was divine, however, the twice baked potato was just so- so. I felt the skin on the potato was too thick, and too dry to really enjoy. Also, I ordered the New York cheesecake and was thinking that although it had a creamy and delicious taste, I wasn't sure it was actually a "New York" cheesecake."

  • "We went to spend the night at the Mission Inn and enjoyed dinner here it was everything that we expected."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "With the reviews I expected a lot more. Food was good but was very expensive. Service was very good."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This was our 3rd visit to Duane's in the past 3 months, a birthday dinner for me. My husband's steak was very over cooked and had to be sent back. By the time the replacement came, we were full and just took the steak home. Also, our grilled asparagus was charred to blackened. It seemed as though the chef was preoccupied and not keeping an eye on the food. That, coupled with a young couple seated directly next to us who couldn't keep their hands or lips off each other, made for a very awkward evening. They were hard to ignore, as they were seated directly next to us. I was glad when their food came, which distracted them from each other, although their show continued between courses. Very rude to those around them."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My Boss and I chose Duane's to entertain some clients from Lubbock, TX. They were staying in Palm Desert but thought the drive to the Mission Inn was worth it. We enjoyed delicious cocktails in the Bar while waiting for everyone to arrive. It's been a long time since I've had an Old Fashioned and it was great. Our table was waiting for us when we were ready. We had a very comfortable table off to the left side of the impressive painting "Charging ...something". Our service was impecable. It was unobtrusive but friendly, swift but not rushed. All the food we had was delicious. If I would have one critisim it would be that the meat portions were a little on the large size and the side portions were a little on the skimpy size."

  • "Duane's is everything you'd expect from a 5 star restaurant. The food and service was impecable."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The service was outstanding. Very friendly and attentive without interrupting the meal. One time the server came by and simply looked over the table, gave us a warm smile and departed. No stupid question like "is everything tasting wonderful tonight?"....in the middle of a bite like I get at other restaurants. Oh yes the food was excellent...."

  • "Very thing was outstanding…just wish this restaurant was not so far from our home."

    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Excellent food, presentation and delicious steaks. This is our best restaurant to visit and always take people here when they visit. You will not go wrong with any dish. The Mission Inn is also a must to visit."

  • "took too long between waitress visits to the table. we had questions about the wine list and she never gave us a chance to ask in spite of many trips by the table. Then I found out there was no somaliea there and waitress was unable to answer questions about our choices.. After ordering a wine off the menu we were informed 10 min's later there was none in stock. I reordered another one and 10-15 min's later was told they did not have that one either. Some one finally showed up at our table and made a suggestion for a more expensive wine and we were finally able to get a bottle about 30 min's into the ordeal of questions and ordering multiple times. Food was outstanding but I'm thinking this was the first day she worked a fine dining place"

  • "for years my husband and I wanted to try Duane's Prime Steak and Seafood, the reviews kept us from trying, finally on our anniversary we decided to give it a try, wow!, have we been missing out, the food was great!, my husband really enjoyed the steak and grilled asparagus, wedge salad, and rebaked potato, I had the salmon with grilled asparagus, all delicious! for dessert we had NY cheese cake, excellent, my most memorable moment was when we realized it seemed like we were at home having a romantic candle lite dinner! The service was excellent, we are looking forward to our next dining experience at Duane's. We also look forward to staying in the hotel one day soon even though we live locally."

  • "I was looking forward to celebrating our 26 year wedding anniversary at this place! However it took 45 mins after they sat us to be approached by a waiter & only after we asked the front hostess who our server was going to be? A waitress finally came & said they were busy with other guests. But there's 5 or 6 tables that we're empty? I think the restaurant & the staff is forgivable here specially Danny the manager who was very accommodating. The MAJOR FAIL here is the flowers that I ordered? We NEVER got them? I've been giving my wife flowers for the last 25 yrs. and now NOTHING! The restaurant & the hotel didn't know anything about it & said it was a pop up on the website? Very deceiving then if it's true? Please send my money back ASAP !"

  • "Title says it all service ,food , atmosphere all just ok .They try but its not the real fine dinning experience that I've come to expect from other restaurants. I realize its Riverside but still...could be better."

  • "Our server was absolutely amazing! The shrimp cocktail was the best I have ever eaten ANYWHERE"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "First, know that this place is VERY expensive. But if you want a pull-out-the-stops special event dinner (e.g., birthday, anniversary) this is a good place to go. Everything is first-rate, the service is excellent, and it's a beautiful location. The steaks really are special -- our party of four had the Chateaubriand (shared for 2), New York, and Filet Mignon -- all excellent. By the way, other reviews say this is the ONLY excellent restaurant in Riverside. This is false. Mario's is right across the street. It was closed the night we went to Duane's which is why we went there. Duane's was a lot of fun, but Mario's is still better (more variety, more original) overall."
