Too much service, a tad bit over the top.
The service and the food are outstanding.
Perfect steak! Perfect pork chop! Wait staff...exceptional.
We will dine there again!
Excellent service and staff was very attentive and friendly.
Amazing food and service!
Not great experience. Food came out and most of it was cold. They took it back and brought so better food out. We went to get our check and they decided to charge us for a $15 glass of wine when we ordered the nine dollar glass of wine. I said we ordered the nine dollar glass of wine and the waiter said oh no you didn’t and said you ordered this other glass wine anyways they ended up changing the check to the nine dollar glass wine. There’s no way I would ever order of $15 glass of wine when there is a nine dollar glass of wine option that is not me. Not sure why he had to challenge us that knowing they would do the right thing eventually. The correct food was average at best. Bacon wrapped scallops were just OK and my small fillet was just OK with a big piece a gristle down the middle... but I did not complain because of the cold food situation and did not want to seem like complainer!
Brent was attentive to my food allergies and remembered us from prior dinners. Our steaks were prepared exactly right and served super hot!
Great dining experience loved this old school steak house so classy.
Excellent dinner and service! The meal was pricy, but was worth it!
Honestly, went there when it first opened as was mildly underwhelmed. Recent visit was entirely different....for the better. Excellent service, outstanding cuisine, appropriately priced and--pleasantly--a back-lit menu that I could actually read with the aid of a searchlight. I will be back and you would be well served to try Donovan's if you haven't already.
Great waiter and we love this restaurant, Best food quality in AZ and we will make Donovan's our main restaurant for great Food and people.
The restaurant was somewhat noisy. Wait staff was loud when explaining things to newly seated customers. All four us ordered an 8 oz. fillet at varying temperatures. When the meal arrived, two of the fillets did not look like center cut fillets. Only one of the fillets was cook to the temperature requested. On returning the fillets, the medium rare steak came back as well done, the other ordered originally medium, but came out rare, was return medium rare. We were told that we would receive a complimentary desert for the trouble with our meal. At the end, we were presented with desert menus, with no mention of the promise complimentary desert, and then presented with the check. Not at all a pleasant experience. Will not be returning.
My wife and I have been going to Donovan's on Phoenix since they opened in 2005. It is one of our favorite restaurants. We began our Donovan's love affair at their La Jolla restaurant in the early 2000's. Typically, our visits are exceptional. But this visit missed the mark.
Beginning with a lobster tail as an appetizer was a great choice, although it took a while to arrive after ordering. At Donovan's, the steaks are supposed to be the highlight of the evening, but this time, they were not good. A disappointing $500 meal. Maybe there were kitchen issues or some other problem that we were not aware of, but this visit was not up to Donovan's standards.
You can't ask for a better meal. Excellant filet and scallops. The wine list is real good and the creme brulie unbelievable. Kudos to all
Surprised my Fiancé with something new a different and they did not disappoint! He loved everything about it!!!! 2 thumbs up
We were using our "Fine Dining Card" and had not been advised of any exclusions from the menu until we began ordering. Our waiter then had to leave our table to check with the manager what items they were going to exclude. We didn't complain about this but, we weren't happy. We had taken time to carefully decide what we wanted to eat and now, had to relook the menu. That said, I move to the meal itself. Although everything was satisfactory; for the prices, it was not extraordinary! Donovan's prices are just slightly lower than Maestro's and we find that the food at Maestro's is much superior -- and only a few bucks more.
Donovan's has an quiet atmosphere (it was Tuesday and it wasn't crowded) and it felt like an old "gentlemen's club". In fact, to be honest in comparing the two steak houses, we prefer Donovan's atmosphere to Maestro's fast and louder atmosphere.
It was our first time there and we were celebrating my husband's birthday. We enjoyed our food, my filet was amazing. The staff was excellent. We'd definitely go back for a special occasion.
All fantastic...just wish the wine list was current. We got our hopes up for the once in a lifetime bottle not in stock. Happy with another great value found though!
Very nice with special efforts made for our anniversary. Staff very professional after initial slow attention when we were seated. Food was excellent. Very traditional ambiance and feels a bit dated, but overall extremely nice evening. Would go here again.
Under cooked ribeye, sent back. Flavor less and tough. Offered a replacement, but my wife already had her food and I did not want to wait. Didn’t eat it and it was removed from the bill. Service was friendly, but very sporadic. Fried potatoes and onions with some sort of glaze were disgusting. Coffee refill wasn’t offered for over 15 minuets. Not a pleasant experience, especially for a 26th wedding anniversary. You would be well served to dine someplace else.
