The food, service and experience at Durant's is wonderful and a cut above all other steakhouses in the Phoenix area. Always done right the first time, once you have eaten there, you will want to come back for all your special occasions.

On a recent return visit to Phoenix I brought three guests with me who had not been to Durant's previously. Unfortunately Durant's did not show well for our group. Of 4 entrees order, three were cooked improperly - 2 prime ribs were overdone and 1 filet was grossly under cooked. The management attempted to be accommodating, but the unfortunate impression...

Every time we are in Phoenix we head for Durant's. The drinks are strong, the wine chilled, and the steaks and prime rib are divine! But, this time I had the chicken livers - the best I have ever had (sorry, Mom).Our wonderful waiter, Marcello Grion, got a good laugh from my choice and Alma, the assistant packed my left-overs...

Love this place when in town. The food and service are always top notch. Great old school look and feel and a local spot that has been family owned and run since 1950. If you are in town, give it a shot. You will not be dissapointed

I hadn't been to Durant's for a few years so we decided to go back. I love this place because nothing changes (except the prices). Red flocked wallpaper...old time charm. On this visit the service was not up to par. Our drinks went dry multiple times as our waiter seemed distracted. I was also very disappointed to learn that I... More

This was the first and last time that I will be visiting this place. Walking in it seemed like a nice place but after getting the wrong salad dressing after asking the second time and then getting lukewarm prime rib and cold sweet potato fries that I paid $36 for I was really disappointed. Wish it had met the expectations... More

What can I say! Very enjoyable. Best martinis I have ever had and the prime rib was perfectly cooked and oh so tender. Service was exceptional. We will be back!!

I've eaten here a few times. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very fun. Love entering through the kitchen and the old pay phone outside the bathrooms is a cool part of the old school decor. The only setback is its super pricey.

Had a reservation, but when we arrived 8 minutes early we were told to go to the lounge and wait until the table was ready. A few minutes after our reservation time we were seated at a table. Funny thing is that this table was available when we were directed to the bar area. The table was next to the... More
