What a throw back. The entire place is covered in red. The carpet, the walls, all red. It is hard to get a booth since most of them are reserved. I had the NY Strip. It was cooked perfectly and had a lot of flavor. I also had the calamari. It was nice as well. The service was a bit... More

So much so, I went back three times in the same week! The menu selections are good, the food was great, and the bar was excellent. Their bartender, David, goes beyond expectations to make you feel comfortable and ensures that you were well taken care of. Every bar should have David.

As soon as I walked in I felt like I walked into 1945. Dark, visually rich atmosphere. The food was so good- not the stuff you can get everywhere else. I thought the Rat Pack was going to come in at any moment. Maybe a mobster was there planning how to control the Union. Really unique place that I didn't... More

We went for our anniversary and were welcomed with congratulations and immediate service to a beautiful corner table. The food was mouth watering and made great left overs! We can't wait to come back!

Durant's has been around for 58 years, so they must be doing something right. We went on Restaurant Week to try it out.I had the 8 oz.prime rib and a baked potato, as vegetables are an extra. The 8oz. prime rib was good. My wife had Pan Seared Salmon with Mango Ginger Glaze. Both were good. She didn't care for... More

We we to Durant's tonight. We haven't been there is quite a while as it is a 30 minute drive. The decor of this restaurant will take you back in time. Dark wood, flocked red wallpaper, making you feel right at home. You walk through the kitchen to get to the restaurant! First they bring you a vege app with... More

Was treated like family during a recent visit. Durant's has a classic steakhouse menu with some great seafood options. Service and presentation was nice without being too much. Especially liked fresh oysters and their unique take on garlic bread. Steaks were good quality. Definitely will remain on our Phoenix restaurant list.

Had dinner here, took our breath away. Great place, great staff, great service and fantastic meal. Recommend it, and just across the road from our hotel the Fairfield inn and suites.

Felt like I was walking into 1965 as we walked through the kitchen and into the restaurant. Very classic atmosphere and great for business or social occasions. Service great, food excellent. Would highly recommend and will definitely return.
