  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The quality and preparation of their steaks is excellent. Our waiter took care of all our needs in a low key and professional manner. My Rob Roy was made exactly as I like it."

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "This place was fantastic. Jazzy dim-lit, restaurant with a 1920's Chicago Mobster style feel about it. Food is priced well considering the quality, ambiance, and service you get with it. The hostess Michelle was very helpful in helping push out reservations back when we missed the light rail, then helped give directions to our next destination. Our waiter Chris was wonderful: full of suggestions on favorite dishes and wines to pair. Also helped get our dinner order put in right away so we could make it to our next destination on time. Would absolutely return to this restaurant, and will highly recommend."

  • "My wife and I attended Durant's for my 70th birthday steak dinner Sunday with a 4:30 afternoon reservation. We had dined at Durant's (our first experience there) four or five years ago and were pleased. Ordered the 8 ounce filet ($51) and specified pink throughout.   The server said medium, when the steak was brought to our table it was red and cool in the center (obviously rare). I sent it back and when it came back the center was still red and cool, . For the price they are charging the steak should be cooked correctly the first time, or at least the second time, sweet potatoes fries were undercooked . Left a 25% tip, Will not be returning. Regret not talking to the manager. Durant's is trading on their past reputation. P&C"

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Where to begin, everything about this place says class. The red leather booths, the low lighting, the very attentive staff, the menu. It's neat entering the restaurant through the kitchen. What makes this "steak joint" unique is that the sides are included, not ala carte. The prices are up there, but they do not nickel and dime you with the sides. Of course, other items such as mushrooms are extra."

It was our first time dining here and we were very happy with our experience. The service was wonderful, the food was good and nicely presented. We will be back"

  • "Have been going there for several years on our anniversary and a few other special occasions. The food is always great and the service is the best."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "From the moment you enter, directly through the kitchen, you know that this restaurant will be a unique experience. The rat-pack era vibe is present in the decor and this place lacks the pretentious nature that some Phoenix area steakhouses have. The food is amazing and expertly prepared. The staff is attentive. The entire experience was every bit as good as steakhouses at twice the price. This is a place that everyone should visit."

  • "This was a wonderful way to celebrate our 27th anniversary with great friends celebrating their 25th anniversary. Everyone made us feel very special. Food and drinks were wonderful and service was outstanding. This was the best ever. Would go back for any occasion and recommend it to others. Thanks for a wonderful time."

  • "2nd visit to Durant's in a month. Ambience is a throw-back to the 'Rat-Pack' days. Terrific wine selection and the steaks....perfection. Improvements could be made to salads and baked potatoes. The spuds on both occasions where rather small...not true Russet's. The salads where plain and the dressings had good flavor but as the old adage states....'A little goes a long way'. In the future I'll always ask for the dressing on the side. Overall I'd recommend. A special place for special occasions. "
