This was truly an evening out for me. The restaurant is 58 years old and a staple for the business people of Phoenix. The food is a little expensive but it is delicious which makes up for the price. The servers were great. My water glass was never empty. The entrance is through the kitchen which adds a bit of... More

Just had lunch at Durants and came away disappointed and a little depressed. Decades long customer. Had what I've had for special lunches there for years, shrimp cocktail, ceasar salad, the french dip sandwich. Still good quality beef but much smaller and the roll was horrible, subway has better bread. What appeared to be frozen fries and skimpy au jus.... More

First let me say their prices are through the roof. Every time we go in the prices have gone up. Such a bad value for what is served. I've been going to Durant's for a long time and I am officially done. The servers just aren't very polite, are not any good, and they act like you are bothering them.... More

This restaurant is a top place to visit in 'The Valley of the Sun' if you want a classic steak house experience with stiff drinks, classic appetizers, huge cuts of beef and horseradish that will raise the roof. I 'strongly' recommend reservations, yet arriving early can prove for a fun bar experience. The shrimp cocktail and prime rib should not... More

I took my wife here side she has never been. The service was great the food was awesome. It was a very nice change of pace to go out for a nice romantic dinner. I would highly recommend Durant's to anyone that wants an upscale restaurant.

Went here with friends for my birthday and was very disappointed in the quality of the food for the price. The food was good, however, the value was on the low side. Ordered the prime rib medium rare and it was delivered as requested, but was not anywhere near prime. I have had better cuts of meat from the local... More

There were 13 of us who visited Durant's on Saturday to celebrate my husbands birthday. With such a large group we did not expect to get perfect service. Boy were we ever surprised. We had two waiters and two assistants attending to our every need. The food was outstanding, from the the Prime Rib, the Rib Eye, the Trout and... More

Went here for a Friday evening celebration dinner and was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Though the outside of the restaurant won't win architectural awards, it's a Phoenix classic and tradition that's still apparently a fixture for the downtown business set and that special evening out for the perfect steak in a 1950's era decor. Free valet parking and... More

It was a party of four for a business dinner, and after walking through the kitchen to the dining room, wow! Fresh flowers, white tablecloths, etc. It did not stop there. Everything we had was fresh and delicious. The steaks cooked to perfection! It was pricey, but oh so well worth it. A splurge!
