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

Great decor, very professional staff who help make your dining experience very special. Have the prime rib, you could cut it with a butter knife, absolutely beautiful. Had... More

My wife and I dined at Durant's Fine Food at the end of a recent conference trip to Phoenix, and Durant's was the fitting finale for a great trip. Durant's is very old-school in decor (wood, red velvet, and leather), but with the amusing touch that diners enter through the kitchen (yes, you read that right)! On the Saturday night... More

My husband and I were in the Central Corridor of Phoenix and thought it would be fun to go to Durant's. We had last been there over 20 years ago when we were dating. Back then, it was a "dress-up" kind of place and dining there always felt like a special occasion. The entrance is still in the back, through... More

Steak was perfect. Dessert was perfect. Wine was perfect. Waiter was perfect. This is a "must go to" steakhouse in Phoenix. Love it every time we go. Even the kitchen entrance is an experience!
