We have always enjoyed Durant's. We have recommended it many times. My wife was going to order the Crab Cake dinner but the Waitress recommended against it. We did see that it was the most expensive fish dish on the menu and when the waitress explained that there were only two crab cakes on the dinner and they were small, my wife went for the Chicken Picata instead and it was delicious. The Tiramisu was wonderful as was the strawberry shortcake.

On our first visit we discovered why Durant's is so highly recommended. From the greeting we received as we entered through the kitchen to the service throughout the meal, our experience was at an all-time high. The staff knows how to serve and the chef and assistants certainly know the finest ingredients to make a memorable meal. My husband's filet was perfectly cooked, and my scallops had a sweetness that only the freshest seafood would have. We loved the classic decor, and would not recommend a change to any of the elements at the restaurant. We look forward to another excellent meal and experience.

Wonderful experience from entering the famous back door entrance through dessert! A walk back in time to the 50’s. Such ambience. Service was excellent by every member. A special thank you to our waiter, Dave. But, you can’t eat ambience. The food is most excellent. Everything we had was five star. Many excellent offerings on the menu. We will be back many times. Thank you!

My boyfriend and I went to Durant’s for Valentine’s Day, and it was fantastic. The way you enter through the kitchen is a awesome experience to see the inner workings. The ambiance is great, and the food is even better. The calamari is a great appetizer; literally melts in in your mouth. Before the main course, you can chose between a soup or salad. The soup that night was Lobster Bisk (not sure if that’s the main soup there), it’s a very rich soup that’s very filling; so becareful! Our main meal was the filet mignon done medium rare, and it’s was absolutely amazing! Great flavor and paired with the garlic mash potatoes it was just simply great! Would love to dine here again for another nice night or special day. Only downside was sitting by the bar, it did get pretty loud but died down quickly.

Our annual Valentines and Anniversary dinner at Durant’s. Everything from the friendly greeting on entering to the cooks wave on way out was superb. Vince, who has served us in past years, was his usual friendly and competent self. The lobster bisque soup, one of my partners favorites, was excellent! She had fish dish and I had prime rib. Both of us took food home. We have always loved the restaurant ambiance and this visit was no exception. We will see you next year! Give Vince a pat on the back for us.

Another excellent experience from the moment we entered. We requested the bar area, showed up almost 45 minutes early, and our table was ready. As always, the service is great, well paced, and attentive. We love coming here for cocktails, our favorite... oysters Rockefeller, and steak. We ended with Strawberry shortcake, as usual... Can't wait to return. We appreciate how the entire crew and management go out of their way to insure everyone is thoroughly satisfied. As you can tell... we are highly satisfied with each and every visit. We can't say the same about other places we frequent. Always a good time at Durant's!

The food was very good, but not, as they say, the best in Arizona. My salad was uninspired, but the rest of my meal (ribeye, fries, and table bread) was good but not great. Portions were large. Cheesecake for dessert, also good but not great. Service was average, atmosphere very old school, but cool. A Phoenix institution that needs to sharpen up, to justify those prices.

The restaurant is severely over priced for the quality of food. If it was high quality which is what I expected then I wouldn’t mind the pricing. This was not what I expected.

Great place where you definitely get an old school feel of dining. Entrance through the kitchen is a good experience. The service was great, fine dining but not as fancy as the other fancy steak houses in the area. The place was crowded with good amount of noise, enough to hear conversations around you. The handshake greeting in the entrance is nice as well. Overall good experience.
