Wonderful meal at a classic Phoenix steakhouse. I love tradition and glad to see that Durants has kept the same decor, delicious food, menu, and great service consistently through the years I have resided in Hoenix.

Being originally from the Mid-West this restaurant falls into the classic supper club from the 50's and 60's. The decor is old school, the service is impeccible by long term employees and the steaks are outstanding. It may be a little pricey for some however the food quality and personal service can't be beat.

I love Durant's and have visited many times over the last 20 years. Classic steak and martini's and they are excellent, the bread is very good as well. May run into many tech types or others in your industry. The atmosphere and décor are old school clubby, think Chicago or early Vegas. The service is always good, they don't allow... More

Heard so much about this place and finally decided to visit for my anniversary with my husband. At first everything was great, but we were sat next to a table of business men who seemed to have no issue talking loud enough to be heard and nothing nice to say. I have no reason to blame the restaurant for their... More

We had a great meal all around. I hate to say I ate 2 loaves of bread by myself. We were a little put off by the waitress telling us one of our party could not drink from a bottle of water she brought in. We could understand if they were charging for water, but our guest was told by... More

I have been going to Durant's for almost 30 years. I always loved the old school service, atmosphere and never minded paying top dollar for prime steaks and the best martinis on the planet. My last three visits, over the course of six months have been terribly disappointing. Any restaurant can have an off day. Three in a row though,... More

The decor says it all - red leather, plaques for unexplained clubs, etc. This is a steakhouse out of the 1950s. That said, the food couldn't have been better. I had a shrimp cocktail, and the shrimp were meaty and fresh. The filet was cooked perfectly with just enough salt to let the flavor shine through. But the real winner... More

This is still a special place to eat, one of the oldest places in Phoenix to eat, the atmosphere is the best. The walls are covered with pictures of big time movie and TV stars who eat here and love it. The servers do their best to make you feel like your in old Italy

This was once a premire steakhouse in Phoenix. Although it has a lot of character (I felt like we were waiting for the mob to show up!) the interior is severely dated and showing wear. We had the great mis fortune of being seated within a few tables of a very, very loud group of men. So loud that a... More
