Went for our Anniversary with another couple, ambiance was great. Service however, progressively got worse as time went on. Food took a while to get, but the server failed to ask us if we needed drinks and our water was only filled if we flagged someone down. For the price of dinner, I expect more than we received.

Dining at Duane's is always satisfying on all levels, whether it be in the dining room or that patio. The service was impeccable, the food outstanding, and the overall experience amazing. The staff is more than gracious, from the valet to the reception, waiters, busboys, and back out to the valet. Not one negative throughout the whole evening.

Even though we were in the outside courtyard the setting was beautiful and reminiscent of being in a European City. Our waiter went ABOVE AND BEYOND by asking the Chef to prepare off menu items and the kitchen delivered as well! Food was delicious and flavorful and worth every dollar spent. I was wonderful to feel somewhat normal again and enjoy a wonderful meal with family and friends celebrating a Birthday. Felt very safe and secure.

Celebrated my birthday and was delighted at the outside courtyard setting. The service reminded me of a cruise with the various wait staff coming and going to make our experience memorable. I had the 16oz. rib eye and my husband had filet and lobster, we were both pleased with our choices.
I would return to sample more items off the menu.

Quality of food was outstanding, and outdoor atmosphere is incredible. Many of the wine selections were not in stock, and portions were petite. Salads were fresh and full of flavor. Entrees came luke warm, and wait staff was attentive but seemed to lack knowledge of the menu or wine list.

The seating was in the courtyard rather than the restaurant due to covid. It is a lovely setting. Our server was gracious and knowledgeable. Dinner was delicious well prepared and presented.

We celebrate here every year for my wife’s birthday and our anniversary. They usually celebrate her in some way. I also requested roses. Never received any call or email to arrange this.
Food was Luke warm. Sat outside (which is understandable) but we were surrounded by people dressed non in accordance with Duanes and kids crying everywhere. We sat really close to other people. Service was okay, not what we typically get from Duanes. Upsetting because we spent over $200.

The food was great, but that was really the only positive. Sitting outside combined with the Mission Inn restaurant took away any of the charm of going to Duane's in the past. People were getting up and dancing a couple tables over, which wouldn't bother me if I wasn't paying 200 dollars for an anniversary dinner. That wouldn't have really bothered me as much if the service wasn't so terrible. We ate our entire meal without drinks because our waiter disappeared. I had to ask the waiter's assistant for refills as he walked by to help another table. Then after getting refills as we finished our meal, we didn't see our waiter for another 20 minutes. Since we were so dissatisfied with our service we skipped dessert when our waiter asked when we finally saw him. I would definitely not recommend dining here unless you don't mind awful service. The food was excellent, but not worth the price when you include the service.

I have gone to and loved Duane's many times. This time I was disappointed that the food came room temperature and that made the meal much less flavor full.

The food and ambiance were "as expected..." perfect! Due to COVID precautions, valet parking was unavailable. Hopefully, that service will be resumed in the near future.

I found the food to be well presented and well prepared. I felt disappointed that they only had one kind of dessert Souffle most places of this caliber have two. Neither of us really like chocolate. I was our anniversary and that went unacknowledged by the staff though they knew, slightly disappointing since we spend a couple of hundred dollars in there. Which brings me to the last disappointment. The place is very expensive. Really, I’m Riverside? The ambience doesn’t lead you to believe you are in a place of that caliber. Overall a good experience but not a great one.

We had a truly great experience at Duane's. The food was excellent. Both the chilean sea bass and scallops were cooked to perfection and were delicious. The wine list was extensive and very reasonably priced. Best of all was the service. Annette did a great job. She found the perfect line of being attentive without being intrusive.
