    I do love the ambient surroundings and the quieter setting. Of course the food was excellent as I usually get the fresh catch seafood specialty. Nice to meet with friends there and have a leisure dinner.

    This place looks like it's from 1982. Its dark and dingy with music for 70 year olds. I typically go to Steak 44 for fine dining steakhouse but tried this place for the Groupon. Donovans needs an overhaul. The food was as tired looking as the atmosphere. Bread loaf came out on a plane white round plate uncovered. Butter came on the same tired plate shown as 2 very thin rectangular bricks laying side by side. The ribeye was cooked correctly but was almost too lean and slightly chewy. The seasonal vegetables resembled the old Vegetable Medley right out of BirdsEye with 5 snap peas and 1 carrot. The poatatos au gratin tasted delicious but presented bad as it came out in a square block resembling Lasangna. I wouldnt have paid full price for the meal or experience to be honest. I dont know how they stay in business next to Steak 44 only 3 blocks away.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Donovan's this past Monday August 13. Everyone from the hostess to bartender to servers were outstanding. We felt very pampered. Our table was set up for our special occasion and we were given a delightful dessert as well. Food was perfectly cooked. We would highly recommend Donovan's for that special occasion destination!!

    I booked a table for 2 for my boyfriends birthday and everything went swell. Amazing food and attentive staff made the night a dream come true. They even wrote my boyfriends name on the plate of the delectable cream brûlée the comped from the bill. There was also a “Happy Birthday” card on the table upon arrival. Will definitely come here again

    One of the best "fine dining" steak & chop houses in Phoenix. Starting with the Valet service when driving into the lot, to the receptionist, wait staff, and all contribute to a grand evening. Besides the perfectly cooked meals, the noise level is non existent. A great place for a memorable evening.

    Excellent prime filet cooked to perfection. The meal came with choice of potato and a vegetable medley. Also ordered a beet and goat cheese salad that I wished I skipped. It left me too full and I had no room for dessert. Plus the dressing was just too tangy and overpowering. I would not order the salad again. I was disappointed but not enough to give my review less of a rating.

    The $58 T-bone steak was tough and dry. I asked for it to be cooked medium (pink in the middle) and half of it was; the other half was over-cooked. I expected US Prime beef to be succulent and delicious. It was really disappointing. My husband had the same and the same experience, but he thought the steak had a strange, unpleasant flavor. Maybe their filet mignon is better. The smashed potatoes and vegetables were good. My husband thought the au gratin potatoes were not cheesy enough. We will not be returning to this restaurant even if we win the lottery.

    Donovan’s is a beautiful restaurant with very good food and service. My husband and I always split the Cajun lamb chops for an appetizer and they were delicious as always, though a bit under cooked for our requested medium. We also shared the wedge salad which is very good too. I ordered the crab legs which are my favorite and husband had the ribeye. Brett took great care of us and it was a very enjoyable evening.

    We arrived 30 minutes for our reservation and were led to the bar area to wait. Within a few minutes someone came over and said the had a table open! Food was wonderful. Would not order the creamed spinach again, just ok. Too much food, waiter was not explicit in describing what was included in entree, therefore ordered too many sides, but great the next day. But quite expensive.
