We love going to Durant's. There are enough reviews out there to tell you how great the food and service are. Can't contribute much more than this is the place to go to celebrate any occasion. The decor is so San Francisco with the cherry wood, dim lighting, etc. You can't go wrong making a reservation on Open Table for... More

I love "Old Style Steakhouses", always heard and wanted to try Durant's. We came partially for AZ restaurant week. I made the reservation for 7:00 on Saturday. When we arrived there was ample spaces for parking, no need for the valet service. Atmosphere was "Old school", great feel., busy, tables filled and moderately loud. Our waiter Craig introduced himself, we... More

We visited Durants for the first time and entered through the kitchen and were warmly greeted. We entered the restaurant to be seated at a table surrounded by other diners whose tables were very close together. Three of us ordered steak, asparagus, and baked potatoes and house salads. One person ordered a large shrimp cocktail for their dinner. Durants special... More

Lunch was great! A little wait to be seated. Food and service were excellent. I would definitely come back again. They bring a soup with the lunch specials!

Wednesday night hosted another couple. Went early to sit in bar/lounge and have a cocktail before dinner. Wanted to set a nice vibe with a drink in a traditional lounge. No such luck. No where to sit at the bar and all tables in bar were for diners, although, they were empty. At the bar, standing room only, could not... More

The offer one of the most amazing bread you can get ... garlic lovers will be delighted. Did not find wine by the glass that I really liked but will... More

Excellent cocktail and dinner options. The staff is outstanding! We visited this bar after the U2 concert and loved hearing the history of this bar. Great bar!

Had dinner with friends who had nerver been here. They are big foodies and they could not believe how elegant the dinner and service was. We have been dining here since friends took us here in 2007. Have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, gradustions, mother 's day, father,s day, etc. If you ever dined on the East Coast or Traditional San Francisco... More

Decided to return to Durant's as a treat for my son (graduating from college) and daughter's birthday. It had been over 15 years since I'd been in town. We were there on a busy Saturday night and it was just as I remembered it. This is an old style steakhouse with a very clubby (dark lighting, red velvet wallpaper, dark... More

Durant's is old-time Phoenix, with red-leather booths and tuxedo-wearing waiters. And it's an old-style steakhouse, with unbelievable steaks. My recent steak dinner there rates among the best I've had. The wait staff is attentive, the cocktail pours are generous, and the food excellent. It's also fun to use the back door and give the cooks a thumbs up for a... More
