We went to celebrate a family occasion . The food was fabulous, and the service was great. It’s not a place for children, even though it was noisy. Highly recommend the filet, rib-eye and the key lime pie!
The very best steak house plus great old school atmosphere in Phoenix!! I always bring my out of town guests here and they never fail to be impressed!
My experience at Durant's has always been outstanding. One can not ask for a more perfectly prepared and served meal. Reservations will always required. It always filled even during the middle of the week.
Always exceptional...Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Great waiter. We took some prime rib and baked potato home because servings were so generous...and even the meat was wonderful the next door
The prime rib was excellent and was priced fairly, the 8 oz fillet was great but still quite over-priced. The salad was average but priced like it was the best salad you would ever eat. I highly recommend checking the place out, but be very selective with your order as the value proposition is not equal across the menu. Durant's is an excellent destination for prime rib but I would avoid the overpriced appetizers & salads
Thoroughly enjoyed dining here. My wife and I came here last year for the first time. She loved it as did I. So on my trip out this spring I had to return and enjoy it again. Absolutely fantastic service, quality dining, and a wonderful staff!!
Old style but still fanulous
Wonderful classic 1950s decor. The steaks are great and the ambiance fun.
Durant's is our favorite after-theater dining experience. It never fails to delight us with its authentic decor and atmosphere reminiscent of the days when everyone dressed up for dinner and enjoyed their meal leisurely. Ron, our server, is always attentive and engaging, remembering your preferences from visit to visit. The maitre d' is always most pleasant and makes every attempt to honor your seating choices. And the food! Well, that is always simply delicious and consistently exceeds expectations, of course, paired with a wonderful wine from their list! You will notice that I've used the word "always" in my review a lot. That is because Durant is always the best place to eat!
The filet mignon was good. The chicken piccata was not authentic. It was three medallions with cream sauce. We couldn't get a vodka tonic without it being flat. We will not be returning.
The steaks were
It is a special place, for sure. Way too expensive for the quality, and way too much food. Our server was ho-hum, and so was my meal. But every once in a while, it’s a fun place to come. I don’t eat beef, so I tried the chicken oscar. It was okay and 3 times more than anyone could eat. My husband had a steak and said it was not really medium rare...more medium. A fun date night, but expensive.
Disappointed. Have been here before — first time 55 years ago! Service and drinks were great. My steak (filet) was very poor. Meat was grainy as mediocre tenderloin can be and slightly over cooked — more medium than medium rare. My son’s Prime Rib was okay but not spectacular. Have had much better meals at Durant’s and will probably return, but if they have downgraded their beef, won’t be but once.
Food was awesome! Will be going there again for sure!
Food and service is simply outstanding. A bit on the costly end, but a great dinner date.
The service was impeccable and the food beyond compare. One of the best five restaurants at which I have eaten across the country. The special treat in leaving through the kitchen was each member of the kitchen staff thanking us for coming
Never disappoints! We've been steady clients for over 18 years and Durant's is always a treat! Consistently great service and outstanding food!
My favorite place!!!!
Jet was our waiter and was fabulous. He filled us in on the history of Durant's and made sure we had a memorable anniversary. This place is truly a gem!
This was my third time at Durant's. Food was wonderful; ambiance was as I remembered----classic old steakhouse. Service from our waiter, host, water/busing staff was all disappointing. It seemed like everyone was stressed or had a bit of a chip on their shoulder. $500 for the 4 of us. We expected a little happiness on the part of the staff. Maybe a few smiles would be nice?
Very comfortable, old-style steakhouse. Love the food and ambience.
As always an amazing meal for my husbands birthday! Thank you Corey great night because of your stellar service we loved it all
Awesome food and service
Food and service were what I expected judging from the menu and prices. The filet was perfect and blue cheese was added at my request. Excellent wine selection. Ricardo was my server and did a great job. I will be bringing my wife next time.
My friend and I do an annual get together here and its worth the splurge. The steak sandwich and cocktails are just perfect.
If you have a business lunch you cannot go wrong with Durants. The food and service is always excellent and it is like stepping back in time . I always feel like I am in a mad men episode.
This is a great restaurant, food was delicious and prepared as I asked for, server was great and very friendly. I love walking through the kitchen to get to the dinning room. Be prepared to spend a little more than usual but it is well worth it. My only disappointment was that there was a table next to ours and the patrons had a little too much to drink and was using some language that was offensive to my wife. Other than that I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Durant's is a classic American steakhouse and, as far as atmosphere, the best in Arizona (in my opinion). You have dark lighting, red leather booths, red wallpaper, etc. On this visit, which was me and 3 work colleagues (2 from out of town), we had excellent service and very good food. Everyone was pleased. I get to Durant's a couple of times a year and it seems like the steak prices have gone up since the last time I was there, but they seem to be in line with other steakhouses and I think that the Cabernet that we drank was an excellent (restaurant) price for the quality of the wine. Overall, we had a very positive experience and I will return.
It’s always excellent at Durant’s. This is my favorite Vallet Steak House.
Jett was fantastic, as were the steaks and wine. Great night!
Our waiter Kevin was great, very attentive and informed us about all the choices.
Long time Phoenix resident, first visit to Durant's. Outstanding. Ricardo was a delight.
Fantastic. We celebrated our 49th anniversary and it was a great experience. Highly recommend fir ant occasion.
Perfect, as always
I always love the decor at Durant’s. The food was delicious, try the Chicken Marsala paired with Pinot Grigio. The service was outstanding, I can’t imagine an evening out being any better than at Durant’s.
Everything is always great. Great service, food, and atmosphere.
Great ambiance, food, and service. Would highly recommend this great place.
As usual the experience was great. My 2 guests had never been to Durants and enjoyed their experience. One suggestion - would it be possible to have gluten=free bread. One of my guests could not eat bread with gluten in it. Waiter was most helpful in providing a small personal vegetable tray in place of the bread that comes ahead of the meal. All of us truly appreciated his concern.
Three long-time friends enjoyed a delectable meal and wine. Our server, Kenny, was personable and professional in all respects. Even though pricey the meal was well worth the cost. I had the Chicken Marsala which was excellent and my table-mates had Prime Rib - everything was superb. thank you, Durant's!
