We had dinner this week at Durant's Steak House - Just Excellent! One of my very favorite places for dinner, Durant's has that look and feel of one of the very best. The restaurant has been in service for decades and continues to provide the very best service, ambience, and most of all steaks! A very special experience with a... More

I had heard of the historical background of this restaurant. This was my first time eating here. The ambiance is fantastic. You feel like you need to sit facing the door in case the "mob" arrives. The food selection is wonderful. I ordered the trout based on the waiter's suggestion. My wife ordered the same. It was undoubtedly the best... More

Old style dining in the heart of Phoenix. You enter through the kitchen and step back into the days of Jack Durant in the 50's. The menu reflects the period with large steaks and lobster. Try the amazing bread!

Yes, you do walk thru the back door they the kitchen. Yes it is a dark classic 1920's kind of atmosphere and YES this is a must since a valley icon... Food is fantastic as well. Martinis are classic and superb

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
