  • "An outstanding restaurant that epitomizes the history of Phoenix, great food and service. A must do when in Phoenix. No steakhouse chain can touch this Phoenix institution!"

  • "Three of us ordered t-bones and they were not good. They were thin and overcooked. I ordered rare and got medium and my steak was tough. The caesar salads were limp and tasted as if they had been dressed hours before. It was a disappointment as we had read good reviews of this restaurant and were looking forward to a good meal. The desserts were excellent but we will not be returning to this restaurant."

  • "Having heard so much about Durant's, I wanted to experience the restaurant for myself so I asked for a birthday gift to Durant's. What a wonderful experience it was! Our waiter was most attentive and exhibited excellent timing. The dinner was outstanding and the dinner bread was unique. I'm already hoping for another gift...maybe Christmas?"

  • "This place is an experience that baby boomers will consider a treat. It is a true classic old school steakhouse complete with red leather banquet, red flocked walls, a huge bar with an amazing selection of libations to choose from and the ambiance that makes you feel at home instantly. The service was excellent and attentive. The piece of meat I had, Top Sirloin, was marvelous. Glad we experienced this piece of Phoenix history. Only consideration is that it is rather pricey. However, when you consider the environment you are enjoying your meal in, the price is in line with all that you receive."

  • "There are not many restaurants around anymore that provide a combination of outstanding food and excellent service like Durant's. It has an old school, no nonsense menu of steak, chops and seafood with an extensive wine list that would satisfy even the most discriminating wine connoisseur. The décor is also totally old school with red velvet wall paper and red leather seating. But you don't go here for the décor. We tried their Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer and they were scrumptious. For main course we both chose the prime rib and it was perfectly slow-cooked and tender medium rare. The only warning I would pass along is that Durant's is not inexpensive but you get what you pay for! You won't leave Durant's disappointed."

  • "Early dinner at 6 pm on a Tuesday was surprisingly busy. Summertime, early part of the week and yet quite active. That is a good sing to me. The food is always good, not that I go that often. It is just that when I go I know what to expect and never am disappointed. Our server, Dave was very accommodating, not "in your face" but available when you needed him. He recommended the Strawberry shortcake and it was the perfect finish to another great evening at Durant's"

  • "Have heard about Durant's for years but finally had dinner there this past weekend. The entrance to the restaurant is through the back door which leads through the kitchen. You are then greeted and shown to your table. Durant's has been in business since 1950. The booths, tables and decor are very comfortable. Our waiter provided a brief history of the restaurant. The food was excellent, service was attentive and our party really enjoyed our experience."

  • "Our favorite spot in Phoenix - we always know we're going to have a wonderful table, fabulous service, the best martini in town and the FOOD! This is one place you'll never say "guess I won't order that again". The prime rib is the best anywhere and fried shrimp will feed you for two days - strawberry short cake is indescribable. Mostly we love seeing the same servers over the years. Happy and friendly and welcoming - can't do enough to please."

  • "Durant's is the "Old Stand By!" Classic and elegant with a hint of eclectic. The food is dominating and the wine is fine! Streaks are the par but have some seafood if you wish! You can't miss! Pick and choose freely! You will leave with built up stories to tell! Enjoy!"

  • "I am very fortunate to be able to dine at Durant's frequently. It is one of those rare restaurants where they know how to take care of their customers from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave. The outstanding service and always exceptional food are consistent with each visit. I highly recommend Durant's to anyone who enjoys an evening of fine dining in a beautifully preserved American classic restaurant."

  • "The food and especially the service at Durant's is always first class. I have never had a meal that would not consider top shelf. Anyone that has not tried Durant's is missing out on a dining experience. All my experiences have been for lunch."

  • "A last minute choice for dinner, it had been many years since I had been in this place. A Saturday evening, but they accommodated us on very short notice. The place was jumping - every table and booth was taken and we grabbed the last four seats in the bar. The place was packed. This place is a throw-back - from the red velvet wall paper to the booths, you go through a time warp when you enter this place. This spot just has to be the place where deals are cut. Every town has one. This is for Phoenix. Food was outstanding, properly prepared and served efficiently. I would highly recommend this place to all steak lovers. But even if you do not like steak, the seafood selection was outstanding. Worth a drive from anywhere."

  • "Durant's is a Phoenix staple, we have never had a bad experience, until Saturday. I ordered the prime rib, medium rare with a quick sear as I have time and time again. My husband, the pork chop. Prime rib came out, no sear. The pork chop, cooked on the outside, raw on the inside. I sent my prime rib back for that quick sear to get it back with only one side seared. The rawness of the pork chop wasn't noticeable until my husband got close to the middle. Durant's did the right thing not charging for the raw pork chop but overall we were very disappointed. To make matters worse, we were quietly celebrating my husband's birthday and would have stayed for dessert and after dinner drinks but we just wanted to go home."

  • "The ambiance is unmistakeablely set as you enter through the kitchen into a world of exceptional food, drink and service. The prime rib may be the best in the City. The service is unmatched. The smile is what is priceless as you are leaving yet another exceptional experience."

  • "Love Durant's. It has a ton of history and has kept the atmosphere for 60 years. The food is outstanding, you can't go wrong. Great place to entertain clients!!"

  • "All three members of our party ordered steak. One was done perfectly, one was cooked the right amount but was incredibly salty-so much so the diner was washing her mouth out with water in between bites...and the third steak was a disaster. The first attempt at a medium rare steak was clearly closer to medium well. The manager responded nicely and arranged for another steak....this one was served almost raw. By this time everyone else in the party has finished eating and the dining experience was ruined. At least they said I didn't have to pay for the steak I never ate. How nice of them. Hitting one for three will get you in the Baseball Hall of Fame, cooking on out of three steaks correctly, not so much."

  • "We celebrated Mother's & Father's Day. Upon arrival, everyone greeted with warm hello. We started at the bar, enjoyed cocktails and conversing with the bar tender. Then to dinner, started with steamed mussels (to die for) and a bottle of champagne. We each ordered a filet mignon (again...to die for). Service was out standing. Pleasant, courteous and very attentive."
