Had drinks and dinner before a show at Phoenix Theater. Bar was packed! Great steaks a little on the pricey side. Steak was very good I had a tenderloin and mate had their Del Monico which was a New York bone in. He raved about it. Decor was red velvet wall paper! Will be back!

Okay, we had a bit of divergence of opinion here. My ribeye steak wasn't quite as good as my husband's bone-in ribeye. First, the relishes, salads and bread leading up to the meal were great. Our server was also top notch. On a busy Saturday night, he was always there when we needed him. We'd asked for a booth and... More

Unique, classic atmosphere. Had seen the movie "Durant's Never Closes" so was wanting to experience the restaurant and it was worth it. Expensive. Steaks were good. The cream of mushroom soup was outstanding! Creme brûlée combo was delicious. Sitting in the booth in the bar was absolutely fantastic! It's a great atmosphere. You should experience it, at least once.

This is my third visit to Durant's while in Phoenix. They have a varied menu to fit all tastes, but the steaks are the specialty. I had the New York Strip (14 oz.) and it was tender as could be, with little gristle or fat. The other five in our party had salmon, scallops, top sirloin steak, crab cakes and... More

We had a great time at Durant's! The food was awesome, we ordered the boneless Rib eye with garlic mashed potatoes, the of the day was shrimp bisque which was delicious!! Highly recommended! Service was great as well. I don't eat that much so I took half of the boneless Rib eye to go. White chocolate cheesecake with Oreo crust... More

While in Phoenix for the National Championship Game, we went with a group to Durant's. It was amazing. Never have I entered a fine restaurant through the kitchen. But apparently that is standard at Durant's. From the great cocktail during our short wait, to the attentive and personable waiter, to the superb steak, everything was great! I would recommend it...

My husband and I went here last week for our 3rd time and it never disappoints. The steaks are always cooked exactly how we want them--this time we got a ribeye and a NY strip. Bottles of wine here range in price and it's so great that they have so many bottles from the $30-$50 range--we aren't super wine snobs,... More

After hearing outstanding reviews of this classic steak restaurant, we tried to get a late reservation on a Tuesday evening. Calling about a week in advance, we were shocked that the only time they could accommodate our party of 5 was at 6pm. We asked if they could do any later, but they insisted that they were completely booked up.... More

We ran in to a friend in Phoenix who suggested this restaurant, and were glad he did. Unique atmosphere, attentive staff, and the food was to die for !!!! A little pricey but, the portions were huge. From the appetizers to the desserts everything was wonderful. Yes, it is well known for it steaks but the chicken is equally good..
