Historic Steak House

Food was tasty - steaks of course! Manhattan Clam Chowder (soup of the day) was good. Unique entry from back parking lot through the kitchen.

Came in with a large business group recently and was completely blown away by the prices. Seriously, sides like creamed spinach and potatoes for $14?? Oysters Rockefeller for $29?? Shrimp cocktail $30?? 8 oz Filet Mignon for more than $50? Seriously, the prices are insane!! Funny that they don't list the prices on the website, as obviously people wouldn't go.... More

Hadn't been there for many years and was quite disappointed at the lackluster lunch. Our server was rather obnoxious and suggested the special which was flat iron steak on a Cobb salad. Got steak on top of a bunch of greens with no way to cut it. Just has become too pretentious and is not good value for the money.

A classic, old school steakhouse, in an atmosphere that hasn't changed much in 60 years. Fantastic setting, food, drinks, and service.

This is a very popular place and therefore it can be a little noisy, so quiet dining may not be possible, but even with that, it is great place to go. It has been around for many years and has a lot of interesting history. All the mover's and shakers dine here and for good reason. The food and service... More

Durant's has always been a special place to me. Visited for my 71st birthday. We asked for a quiet, romantic table for two. To our disappointment we were seated directly across from 5 woman and two men. They had come from the bar area so they already had a few drinks in them. They were extremely loud causing us to...

We happened to be staying near Durant's and thought we'd give it a try. The bf had a steak that was perfectly cooked and my scallops were amazing. Service was also great; I had to send my martini back (not dry enough) and the waiter was gracious. The only negative was that hostess seemed a little annoyed when came in... More

I had not been to Durant's for a few years and was looking forward to it again. It is costly to eat there so I do not go often. When I go to an expensive place like this I expect ambiance, a leisurely dinner and great food. I was disappointed on this visit because it was VERY crowded. They have... More

It's an old phoenix staple. The food was awesome, the service was awesome, I highly recommend. You can dress up but most were in casual clothing. Would be great for a special occasion or a date. It's super dark and "loungey" inside. We actually brought our baby and it was so great. It's a little pricey but you're paying for... More

The staff are amazing and so engaging. You feel like you have stepped back in time. The sour dough bread and the garlicy leak butter dipping sauce is to die for. Everything I tried was excellent. Pricey but worth every penny.
