Another great meal at Durant's! It is a Phoenix tradition, and a great place for a blow-out meal. Our server this time was particularly good.

The service and ambiance was really good but the actual taste of the food was just ok for the price. The Chicken Piccata was dry and didn’t have any real flavor

Durant's is a classic experience on its front. And the experience begins the moment you walk in the back door. Everyone was specifically cordial and welcoming. My most significant disappointment, however, is with the quality of food for the price. Understanding that one pays a bit for the name and the history, I was underwhelmed with the entrees. Having visited numerous Class A restaurants in the Valley...the price tag on the dinner, in comparison, was simply not worth the taste and experience. I might return...but the likelihood is not high...there are too many Excellent venues in the greater Phoenix area.

I’m a very disappointed as I put down it’s for my wife bday and we got no bday wishes nor the cake. I guess you can say that we’re disappointed because we didn’t get free cake, but spending $200 for 2 for dinner I’d at least expect a bday wish. Anyway not sure this is Open Table app false or Durants false.

SERVICE & FOOD are always excellent at this restaurant. We really enjoy the atmosphere as its not so modern and cold feeling. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary at Durant's and unfortunately the dessert did not meet up to their usual standards. THis was a disappointment as in the past the wedding tower dessert had real strawberries and a lot of whip cream. The wedding tower cake served us had frozen strawberries which were hard to find in the dessert and limited whip cream That was our only disappointment to this lovely evening.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary while visiting family in the area. We had very high hopes after reading such recent, rave reviews, but after discussing our experience together the next day, we both decided that Durant’s was the most expensive “average meal” we’ve ever eaten. We have enjoyed many nice steak dinners in various cities, and we always try to visit highly-rated, locally-owned establishments before going to any chain restaurants. That said, we we know what we like and we know what is exceptional quality. Durant’s had a great atmosphere and we loved the history behind it. The staff was pleasant, but probably not as attentive as they should have been (I ran out of water a few times). We really enjoyed the bread before our meal, but we were not wowed (at all!) by our dinner plates. My husband’s T-bone (cooked to medium-rare) had an unappetizing, whitish appearance and his mashed potatoes, served in a ramekin alongside, didn’t seem very fresh, and were likely just pulled out of a warming oven (the top looked somewhat dry). I had the 8 oz. prime rib cooked to medium and a side of vegetables, and everything tasted fine, but I kept thinking that it just reminded me of something I could get at an Outback Steakhouse—and for significantly less money. Since we were celebrating our anniversary, they treated us to a free dessert, which was very nice. We chose the chocolate brownie which was beautifully presented and tasty. All in all, it wasn’t a bad experience for us. We were both just expecting a much more memorable, above-average meal for the price. Hope this review is helpful to you.

This is a very special restaurant. It is reminiscent of old time steak houses. Red carpet and red flocked wallpaper. The service is first class with semi formal dressed wait staff. Like going back in time to elegance. The food is outstanding. Really a treat. Great for special events or important meetings. Not like any other fine dining restaurant in the Valley.

Had a nice filet and a great prime rib. Side of garlic mashed potatoes was good, baked potato was just average, or below. Dinner salads were mediocre and the dressing was too heavy. Old style restaurant is very nice inside, pleasant atmosphere. Prices were a bit too high, probably to help pay for all the flowers. $60 for the filet was a bit much. Good steak but not the best I've ever had by a long shot. Sense is that they do beef pretty well, but the sides -- not so much. Nice that some sides are included, but the value drops when compared to the overall price. Close, but no cigar. Exterior could use an upgrade.

Friends of mine who used to live here moved to New Zealand several years ago and I wanted them to go to Durant's since they'd never been when they lived here. We enjoyed the meal and they enjoyed the atmosphere. I was slightly disappointed though when I mentioned to the waiter that my guests were from New Zealand. He greeted them and welcomed then but I sort of thought that perhaps a manager would come over to our table and give them a personal greeting. That's fine though. I wanted them to enjoy the Durant's experience.

We went for our anniversary and were seated in a quiet corner. The service was excellent and the steak melted in our mouths. Plus it has that old time fine steakhouse charm that I love in the west.

Everything was perfect!

While this was a birthday celebration, our friend did not want any big fanfare, so the desert choice "on the house" for her was a nice touch. Class Act. Food was great, as always, and our server, Nathalie, was awesome.

I met a friend for lunch there and was surprised that you can actually enter through the kitchen which was very clean filled with happy people making food. That's unusual in a restaurant. Our meal was delicious.
We had plenty of good conversation because there was low noise level and xcellent service!

we were treated like regular guest. the manager showed us the bar area and made recommendations for our next visit for seating. I like how the tables in the booths pulled out to allow easy access for all to get in the booth. also the manager and the waiter gave us a brief history of the restaurant and explained the gold plated shoes on display. I notices that several other tables were celebrating birthdays and it was nice to see young and old people in the eating area. over all the price of our dinner was lower than I thought it would be and they gave us a free desert for my wife's birthday. we will be back

We had been planning to go to Durant’s for ages, and finally made it on a recent trip to Phoenix. It is an experience. Ambiance is old school...though no idea why they they have lenter through the kitchen. The service was spot-on, the martini was perfect, and the food was excellent. Be prepared to drop $200 plus for drinks and dinner, but you’ll surely go home with another meal, unless you’re s big eater! Our experience was dampened a bit by so many folks in shorts and sneakers, and one man in a baseball cap! You’d never seee that in a fine dining establishment in NYC.
