Having been for several celebration we chose to return. The food was, as alas excellent, however our waitress seemed find us a nuisance. One of our friends was celebrating her birthday. She placed her gifts beside her in what what was a very small booth. Sharply rebuked by the waitress for being in the way. We have not been back.

I knew Durant's was a highly rated restaurant but I was so impressed with the food and service. Durant's exceeded all of my expectations. The manager, Shawn Murphry, was very welcoming, personable and made sure every part of our evening was the best. We were seated at a very cozy booth (party of 3). The atmosphere at Durant's took me... More

Every city has the obligatory local steak house w faux Edwardian decor. This must be Phoenix's. The meal was just fine. Wait staff worked well as a team. Yet, side wall tables for 2 were so tightly spaced, we were knee-to-knee -- not good for work colleagues or anyone over 5'5". No reason to go back. Lots of choices in... More

The Mrs. decided to be a high roller for my birthday. She picked this place based on the volume of positive reviews. Upon arrival, we went through the back door. Pretty cool to see the kitchen in action. Even though they were busy, the staff took the time to acknowledge us. The decor and atmosphere was awesome. It reminded me... More

Everything from salads to seafood. Nice portions but a bit pricey for my blood. Not in a big restaurant area and not much else around. Don't blink or you will miss the valet parking sign.

The decor hasn't been updated since the '50s. You expect to see Don Draper and Roger Sterling at the bar. It is wonderful. The food is great.

The food was excellent. As an appetizer we had the Rockefeller Oysters and so far were the best Oysters I ever ate, delicious. For entrees I had the Salmon with mango ginger glazed, it was outstanding. My boyfriend had the Grilled Shrimp with Dungeness Crab Louie and loved it too. Great drinks and great selection of wine. At the end... More

The food here was outstanding. The fresh veggies they bring out to you pre-ordering, the warm bread and of course the main dish. I had the Ribeye the night we dined. It is one of the top three steaks I've ever eaten in my life. Tender, juice, perfect flavor!! It hit the spot.

This place is a time capsule that continues to serve wonderful food. I only come here for a steak and I never leave disappointed. I have eaten here for over 30 years but had not been in nearly 7 years. I took a friend who is not used to such quality food and she was amazed at how the fillet... More
