Hands Down, One of the Best Dining Experiences in Phoenix

I've had the privilege of dining at Durant's on several occasions. A fan of steak, I can very easily rate their Filet Mignon as the absolute best that Phoenix has to offer. Everything here is great! Even better than the food though, is this level of service that seems so hard to find anymore. There... read more

Durant's is a grand historical fixture in Phoenix's restaurant scene, and for good cause. As many times as we've been there, we've been blown away by the quality of the food and the outgoing customer-centric service. Our latest visit followed a show at the Phoenix Theatre. I had a yen for a Bloody Mary and could think of no place... More

Let me start of by saying I love steak. I eat at steakhouses everywhere I travel. This place is TERRIBLE! The quality of the steak, salad and dessert is awful for the price. If you want a steak go to Steak 44 or any of the Mastros. Going to this place is just throwing your money away. You have been... More

I travel a lot. And, frequent some of the best restaurants in the US and overseas. My standards are high when it comes to restaurants. Two of my favorite foods are steaks and mussels. The best steaks I've had have been in Argentina and in the US at Benjamin's in NYC. That is until I was in Phoenix last week... More

Typical entrees are $50. At that price point I would expect an extraordinary experience. While the steaks were good, we've had better at much lower prices. Salads were uninspired, garlic potatoes and rice pilaf were OK. Shrimp cocktail - shrimp over cooked. Service was very good.

Lovely old school supper club, complete with red velvet wall paper and cozy booths. You go in through the kitchen and are greeted by the kitchen staff. All busy preparing food. Nice to know they have nothing to hide. We were early for our reservation but were still seated very quickly by very friendly staff member. Our server knew his... More

It is a total experience and a step back in time. It's been years since a plate with carrots, celery, green onions and radishes bathed in ice is place on the table after sitting down. That is very old school. Do not be alarmed when you enter the restaurant and you enter through the kitchen. It kind of shook me... More

We dined here on a Saturday night to celebrate my husbands birthday. I used open table to reserve and it was a breeze. I received a call in the morning from the restaurant to confirm our table.

This old fashioned Phoenix landmark was recommended by the hotel concierge at the Westin. I was entertaining several business colleagues and wanted something special. We started with calamari....very good. Moved on to salads. But the best was the steaks. Prime rib was fantastic!
