We have been enjoying Durants since we began coming here in 1986. It is a family tradition to celebrate anniversaries at Durants. The food is always outstanding and so has been the service. Sadly, this anniversary celebration was dampened by the extremely poor service. Our waitress was extremely unattentive. She checked on the tables around us often and only checked on us if we could get her attention. Because the food is so amazing, we will return, however, if the service is as poor this next visit, we will be moving our family anniversaries to another fine dining restaurant.
Durant's is one of the great classic steak houses in America. It has a rich history and tradition. We have been going there for years and it never disappoints. If you want fancy new trendy dining this isn't it - what it is is classic old world dining with a heavy emphasis on top quality ingredients, properly prepared, and served by real professionals. Our server had bad been working there for 15 years, which is not at all unusual. Our meals were first rate from the oysters to the steaks and sides. Highly recommended.
Huge portions and delicious food! Loved walking through the kitchen and being greeted by the cooks. Awesome atmosphere in historic restaurant. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Love the classy black and white uniform. Perfect for a fine dining experience. Food is pricy, but it’s so worth it for a fantastic dining experience. Must try the house bread, delicious. But stay away from the Atomic Horseradish, it’s a killer.
Excellent food and service as always, however the tables in the main dining room were too close together for comfort. Tables should never be so close as to touch another person at the next table.
Always a treat. The service and food is always top notch. This is my go to for special occasions!
We love having our anniversary dinner here!!! Best prime rib !!!!
Food and service are outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!! Looking forward to returning and having another excellent meal!
Great to have this special dinner for Ravel’s 50th
My grandmother and I went here for dinner this evening. The entire staff was welcoming and professional. Our server Jet was very attentive while allowing us to dine and enjoy each other’s company. The food was FANTASTIC!! We ate every bite and still managed a key lime pie dessert! I would recommend and will be returning again!!
Food was great but priced very high. Service was excellent!
Always a great experience at Durants! Today Ricardo was a bit off his game and it was not busy! Perhaps the presence of the governor had the wait staff distracted! Our menu choices were outstanding! Kitchen staff are ever endearing!
Old school class. Great steaks, high quality service, and a unique atmosphere.
This was my first visit for a business meeting and had Exceptional service.
The legend goes on! Finest restaurant in Phoenix! We were two couples both celebrating our 29th wedding anniversaries. They made us feel like royalty.
The food was amazing. But it was loud and I felt crowded with the other customers.
Everyone From the valet to walking through the kitchen and The wait staff were very nice! The Service and food completely outstanding!
We had such a wonderful evening
Great food friends
Food was great
Service was outstanding
Durant's is our go-to restaurant before the ballet. This past visit on May 5 was perfect. Ron, our waiter, was exceptional. Their steaks are out of this world, but oddly enough their fried shrimp are also excellent. Since I couldn't decide I ordered the surf and turf. The flavors were beyond delicious. We cannot say enough good things about Durant's - except that we will be back again - soon!
Excellent food and service, as always. We'll be back!
Best Restaurant in Phoenix. Service is impeccable.
We went to celebrate our anniversary with my cousin who was in town. We made the reservation and was welcomed and thanked for celebrating with Durant's. We had some cocktails and I enjoyed the calf livers while my wife dined on the scallop scampi. My cousin devoured her chicken marcell. Everything was fabulous and then we were surprised with a strawberry shortcake gifted to us for our special evening. The only oversight of the evening was feeling we got lost in the shuffle on several occasions. Otherwise everything was spot on!
I love Durant's and was excited to have date night there. Everything was amazing.
Took first-time visitors for the ambiance and the nostalgic "chic". They loved everything and I'm going back with another first-timer in 12 days!
Service and the food was Amazing.
Great service, atmosphere, and food!
We have recently moved to the Phoenix area, so I chose to take my girlfriend for her birthday. The valet was friendly and provided some good hints. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. Not a fan of prime rib, but it was excellent. I love the atmosphere, very rustic. Out waiter was beyond excellent. Won't hesitate to dine there again!
Nothing outstanding about the meal but the exorbitant bill. Only had fish, and company had crab cakes. The fish was simply horrible (Trout); luke warm and tasted like it was microwaved and not freshly cooked. Have eaten steaks here before and they were very good. Love the shrimp cocktail. This meal charting in at 130.00 for the quality of the meals together and from input of my company was very very poor and lackluster! I think even after eating here on 4 prior occasions (all steak dinners) will not ever be a”go to restaurant” to take anyone again. I am extremely disappointed. Even the baked potatoes tasted “warmed up” and not freshly baked. For the price? Naw
As always a wonderful meal great service and made a long time friendship even BETTER with my guest. They will return for many of their future business meetings.
The most unique thing about this restaurant is that you enter through the kitchen. This is epic and feels like an honor. The staff take a couple seconds to make you feel like a true VIP with a warm welcome as you enter and greeted by the host. When we entered the sitting area it was like we where dumped into a scene it the Goodfellas with how the dim the lights where and with the seating arrangements. We where sat quickly and everyone that worked our table wished us a happy anniversary which I thought was a nice touch to the evening
The filet mignon was honestly the best I have ever had in my life. I had it cooked to medium and it would start to fall about just with my fork! It was very juicy and melted in my mouth with amazing flavor and perfect texture. The chef changed my view on how a steak should be cooked for ever! Megan had a delicious chicken mushroom dish with a very interesting sauce that was amazing. We finished our meal with some raspberry sorbet which was the perfect end to our meal.
The staff was amazing, they where quick and efficient. Megan I enjoyed watching them as they seemed to dance across the floor helping each other in perfect unison and loved the chemistry that is brought to the place to make everyone feel very important.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone and although it is not required, I recommend dressing up a little, men put on tie. I say this because it adds to the atmosphere and makes you feel like you are apart of the experience.
Everything was great considering the place is a bit pricey! But the food was excellent and the service was excellent! Would probably go back for a special occasion only due to the high cost of the meal for two with wine $400.00
Durants is a classic steakhouse with steaks cooked to perfection. Old school charm with red leather booths and dark walls. Enter through the kitchen to experience excellent service, fantastic steaks; a perfect experience for steak lovers. Yes, it's expensive. But sooo worth it.
Always a good time at Durant's. Old school vibe with great food.
Just really fabulous!!! All the employee's and wait staff were really friendly and did just a really good job of taking care of us.
Great meal and service! The food is always delicious.
First time to this landmark Phoenix establishment— and we’ll be back! Great ambiance and vibe — terrific food. The Durant’s bread alone is worth the trip. Steaks were perfectly prepared. Prices are high, but worth it for the experience and for a special occasion
Amazing food and amazing service. Will absolutely go again.
As always, great evening and great food!
First time in Phoenix hanging out w/ my bestie! Food was pretty good.
Best Prime Rib I have EVER tasted! Great waiter, food, wine and birthday desserts. Worth the long drive.
Durants has a great VIBE, old-school, food is excellent. It is a little pricey but worth it due to the ambiance, quality of food and service. We love spending special occasions at Durants.
