OLD WORLD FLAVOR

Excellent cocktail and dinner options. The staff is outstanding! We visited this bar after the U2 concert and loved hearing the history of this bar. Great bar!

Had dinner with friends who had nerver been here. They are big foodies and they could not believe how elegant the dinner and service was. We have been dining here since friends took us here in 2007. Have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, gradustions, mother 's day, father,s day, etc. If you ever dined on the East Coast or Traditional San Francisco... More

Decided to return to Durant's as a treat for my son (graduating from college) and daughter's birthday. It had been over 15 years since I'd been in town. We were there on a busy Saturday night and it was just as I remembered it. This is an old style steakhouse with a very clubby (dark lighting, red velvet wallpaper, dark... More

Durant's is old-time Phoenix, with red-leather booths and tuxedo-wearing waiters. And it's an old-style steakhouse, with unbelievable steaks. My recent steak dinner there rates among the best I've had. The wait staff is attentive, the cocktail pours are generous, and the food excellent. It's also fun to use the back door and give the cooks a thumbs up for a... More

This is the classic old style steak house with the red leather booths and red velvet wallpaper. Service was impeccable. This place is obviously famous for it's steaks, and the reputation is well deserved. All of our parties meals were cooked to perfection. A little pricey, but good value for the quality of the meals and the service.

Best Martini's in Phoenix and great lunch menu, though somewhat pricey. Great décor and quiet atmosphere, with knowledgeable and attentive wait staff.

This was recommended by a Time Share salesperson.....and she wad right!!! Looks like a dump on the outside ...but INSIDE it is fabulous ...prime rib is heavenly..ambience is perfect. Staff was terrific..couldn't ask for more. Reminded me of Blackies House Of Beef in Washington DC years ago. Dinner with two drinks was 110.00. Worth every penny.

OK, we have all been to a ton of steakhouses that serve the exact food you can get at Durant's, and many of them possibly had better food than this, but the restaurant is more than just the food, it is the experience. It is a really old school place, you enter through the kitchen and all the wait staff... More

If you like 20th century American History, this place is like a walk in the past. Beautiful decor combined with service traditions long forgotten, Duran'ts is perfect for the old school dining experience. Entering from the Parking Lot through the kitchen suggested old time Speakeasy ambiance. The bartender did not flinch when my wife ordered a Gin Press, and I... More

If you want to feel transported back in time a few decades, then you want to go to Durant's. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant look frozen from a time before I was born. But it doesn't look old or run down, just classic. We went there for drinks and a quick late night snack. The bar area is... More
