Durant's is a culinary "institution" and there are good reasons why. Incredible service, a unique atmosphere, a legendary history and truly the best filet mignon we have ever had! While they were busy, we were never rushed and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. A great dessert menu as well and excellent martinis! The husband claims we'll return so he can take on... More

Old school chop house, just what you expect decor and ambience wise. Great place, huge choice bar, red leather stool seating, booths and tables. Tradition says you enter the restaurant thru the kitchen, we did, fab to witness a busy kitchen in action, steak after steak ready to cook. Food....well where do you start.......big prices on some steaks, but these... More

Took my wife for lunch to celebrate her birthday. A special treat to eat here since there is so much Phoenix history involved since opening in 1950. Food and service are always very good. A bit pricey but worth it to absorb the ambiance. Always fun to enter the restaurant through the back door in the kitchen.

My girlfriend & I had a dinner reservation to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. We arrived a couple of minutes late but, were seated immediately in a booth (as requested). Our waitress was prompt and very helpful! We ordered a good bottle of wine & the shrimp cocktail to start. She ordered the 12oz fillet, I had the 16oz prime... More

Nothing in the valley compares to the ambiance and outstanding customer service offered by Durant's. The wait staff are exceptional, and the decor has you waiting for Dean Martin to stroll in with a martini in hand. We enjoyed the chef's special, which was a meatloaf so rich half of the meal came home in a box. We finished the... More

Second time going to this restsurant and both times the food and service were great. This time we all split Oysters Rockerfeller as an appetizer which was delicious. I had prime ribs that was outstanding, and the drinks were a good size.

Our visit was disheartening to say the least! Noting their fabulous ratings on the likes of Zagat, Yelp and Trip Advisor, my wife and I were dismayed with our recent visit to this Phoenix mainstay! Durant’s does take you back in time. Coming in through its front/back door, impresses you with the feel of walking into an old Speakeasy! You... More

Step back into time and the Sinatra era as you enter through the kitchen to this historic Phoenix landmark. Fabulous food and service awaits! My favorites are their enormous shrimp cocktail and any beef dish. This night I had their prime rib and it was excellent!

I chose Durants one of my favorite restaurants. Patrick was our waiter - perfection for the entire wait staff. But he was outstanding. We don't eat red meat, yes it's a steakhouse but we had a lot to choose from. I had chicken marsala which was more than I could eat. They start with a relish tray - old school... More
