Dined at Duane’s to celebrate my Birthday. It was an absolutely perfect choice! From entering the Hotel the ambiance takes you to a very special place rich with history. The atmosphere is absolutely stunning! We were seated immediately and our Server Assistant was very prompt to greet us and offer water. He let us know our server would be Mario. We felt like special guests in for a treat.
Mario greeted us in a friendly manner and I ordered a nice celebratory bottle of Caymus Cabernet. He was very knowledgeable of wines and was very delightful when pouring our taste.
He was not rushed and answered all of our questions in perfect description and detail. All of his suggestions were spot on, the food just melts in your mouth.
Service was not rushed, and not slow either, timing of coarses were perfect.
We ordered the Escargot for starter- it wasn’t to rich, nice and buttery. I wanted a salad for some freshness but I didn’t want to get filled up so we ordered our mains-I had the Scallops with sautéd spinach and they were just as described-melted in your Mouth. Paired with the sautéd spinach was perfect! My fiancé enjoyed the filet and lobster with mash potatoes and asparagus-divine!!
I had to have dessert as it was my special day so I decided on the cheesecake. It was nice, light and a perfect choice to balance out the meal.
Everything was absolutely perfect, a memorable experience! We will definitely choose Duane’s for our next special occasion dinner!

The food was amazing. The server however was not. He seemed to forget that we were there. We had to ask for things that we shouldn't have to ask for at a four star restaurant (extra bread, we ended up pouring our own wine, a dessert selection etc.) and then our bill was wrong and I had to get up to find someone to help correct it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the escargot, beef carpaccio and Hokkaido scallops. All three items were perfectly done, including the sauce on the scallops. The service was awesome, from Austin keeping our water glasses filled and removing items as appropriate. The sommelier (sorry can't recall his name) who gave advice on a wine special. And last, but not least, our server, Mario. All were attentive without being intrusive and we felt pampered and special. Thanks to all!

I’ve been here many times for business - it’s a good spot in Riverside for a business meal. In fact this was my third meal at the mission inn this week.

Food is generally okay and service is fine, and price is high.

But today was just an embarrassment. The main guest at the table was waiting 20 minutes for his meal while everyone had been served. Everyone’s steaks were horribly over cooked. Several of us had ordered steaks “Pittsburgh” style but they were nowhere near that. Coffee came out cold. Sommelier kept trying to sell us wine we didn’t want, and two bottles we asked for from the menu were not available.

At the very least after everything that went wrong, I would have expected something to be taken off the bill (total for 6 was $670 without tip). But they didn’t take anything off, not even the meal that came late. At least a coffee! Nope.

Service tonight by the triage team of Juliette, Samira and Eddie. Grateful for the tolerance of my coveting "Duane's Charger Plate"---aesthetic is superb. Being left in a state of "want" is a foreign feeling at Duane's Prime Steakhouse. Tried the DiRōNA award winner Chilean Sea Bass which was pan seared and embellished in a vibrant puddle of lemon dill sauce--c'est magique! We had tiramisu for the "finale" with coffee. Thanks Samira and Eddie.

Duane’s is a very formal restaurant. A little too formal for my taste, but the tomahawk steak special they run is a great deal. You get soup or salad, bread, a huge tomahawk steak served tableside, choice of two shareable sides, two desserts and a $40 bottle of wine from their own winery. All delicious. Another very slight downside was that although they seem to have numerous people waiting on each table (the restaurant was not at all full btw) they weren’t completely on top of things. They never returned to pour our wine 😳 I would still totally recommend the s restaurant, but mainly for the specials.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Duane's Prime Steaks & Seafood Restaurant. We arrived five minutes before our reservation time and were seated immediately. The restaurant was well appointed with historic art and elegant settings.

Service was excellent! Our wait staff included five persons who catered to our every want and need.

The wine, appetizers and main course were excellent. We were even treated to a dessert to share.

Very nice to sit and talk with my wife without loud and unruly patrons around us. Very well paced meal which took two hours to enjoy. Pricey, but well worth it.

Duane's is a great place for a Special Occasion. The service is impeccable. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You won't be disappointed if you order the correct items. I didn't care for the Onion Soup and the Oysters were way to large. The Rib Eye was good. The brussel sprouts AMAZING! My Wife had the Lobster and Fillet. Not a fan of the grilled lobster tail. We will go back again for sure. If you don't get the Mac and Cheese you are missing the best side in all of California!

We love Duanes and have been going there for years, service is always very good. This specialty dinner was a good price at $119.95 but we were disappointed in the steak. It had quite a bit of gristle and about a half inch of fat along the edge.

Robert Was so polite and professional during our time there Monday evening. He made sure to bring the dessert menu half way through the meal so we did not have to wait forever like some other places for dessert to make it to our table. The young lady who carved our steak table side sliced it perfectly and gave us the option of wrapping the bone to take home to our pet. Overall, great experience.

We haven't been to Duane's is some time, and I'm sorry we haven't. We've been frequenting Flemings in Rancho Cucamonga. No much. The different in quality was incredible. The atmosphere was much nicer and quiet. It was more relaxing and the cocktails are better as well. This visit we celebrated our wedding anniversary, but we love going out to dinner, and Duane's will be on our list of dinner houses to go to.
