    I've been going to Duane's for the past 8 years and never had a bad experience until now. I arrived on time for my reservation but waited another 1/2 hour to be seated. The steaks were cold and not cooked properly. Hopefully, this was an aberration.

  • Steak Diane is terrific.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    The majority of the menu is a la carte; however, Steak Diane comes with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. By far this is the best Steak Diane I have ever had. The meat was wonderful and cooked exactly as ordered. The grilled asparagus was perfect. Although mixed berries were not listed on the desert menu, when I requested them I got a real treat of perfect, fresh berries. My wife's filet mignon was reported to me as excellent.

    Service was impeccable and non-intrusive. The steak was cooked to perfection. The aging and selection method as explained by our waiter makes a significant difference in the quality of the meat. Great boutique restaurant for a romantic evening or for the weekend getaway. This is fine dining as it was meant to be.

    Duane's Steak House was everything we expected and more. The food was very good and Roger our waiter was very knowledgeable and helped with any questions. Also recommended a very nice bottle of wine that wasn't over the top expensive either. There were 7 in our group and every person was pleased with the food and overall experience.

  • Steak house Ok but...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/27/2014
    I think this steakhouse is a good special occasion dinner place. The wine list is incredible but pricey. The service was the best I've seen in a long time, no matter the restaurant. Very personal, yet not pushy. Questions always answered with options to help decide. My guest had a great filet but unfortunately, for the price, my rib eye was not there - at all. The prime steak was not as tender, or a s tasty, as a Costco rib eye (!) and not cooked the way I ordered. Bad choice for that day, I guess. But it is a streak house? I will return, but not for a rib eye.

    We dined at Duane's to celebrate my husband's birthday. We split orders of the lobster and mint-glazed lamb chops. Pricey, but fabulous!!! Our server, David, was very friendly, and even the bus person, whose name we didn't catch :-(, was very personable, offering to take a picture of us, and sharing a cat story or two! All in all, we had a perfect evening. The Mission Inn was so beautifully decorated for Halloween. We can't wait to return around Christmas time. Dinner at the Mission Inn, and then a show at the Fox Performing Arts Center. The perfect date night!

    The service at Duane's is amazing. Very personalized service. The only thing that kept me from giving them five stars was the pricing. Yes, I am well aware that you pay for quality - I have been in very many excellent restaurants. That being said, they were over priced for what they offered when the quality wasn't as good or was comparable to places like Flemmings, Mortons, and high end restaurants in Vegas. However, we had a lovely evening, the service was impeccable and the food was good.

    We came here for our wedding anniversary. This restaurant is located in the beautiful Mission Inn Hotel. It is decorated very beautiful inside. The restaurant has a romantic setting with dim lighting. We had excellent service. The servers and waiters were very polite and attentive. You are never left with an empty glass. The shrimp were huge and they taste amazing! Many sides to choose from. Be sure to save room for dessert so you can order a cupcake from Cupcake Wars winner Casey's Cupcakes, or choose from their amazing dessert menu. Next time I want to try their crème brulee. The corkage fee is affordable if you don't want to spend money on expensive wine. After dinner you can walk around the historic hotel or go to a nearby bar.

    I was never asked if I wanted another drink! And when I told the waiter I could not eat anchovies he just shrugged and left the appetizer with anchovies on my table! I think because I was seated alone I was ignored. Very disappointed when I paid so much for my dinner. I never received a copy of my receipt after I paid.

    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.

    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.
