Be sure to make a reservation. Felt like a gangster of olden days by entering the "back door" and walking thru the kitchen to find a comfortable bar that many celebrities have drank the fabulous cocktails. We were seated in the dining room filled with large booths. We requested flowers at our table and was not disappointed by the excellent... More

Decided to take a quick lunch trip across the street from my work to take my sons out for their birthdays. Knowing that it was pot roast day, I brought them to Durant's. I asked for a booth and was told that even though I did not have a reservation I could still get a booth for the three of... More

My Wife and I had Friday night reservations and despite being early, we were seated right away! The seating, service and attention to detail was excellent! Our waiter Jeff was just fabuluous. Friendly, conspicuous without being "hovering," and a great sense of humor. My Wife's mid-sized prime rib was cooked as ordered and was great! My top sirloin was the... More

Party of 10. None of us normally enjoy large party business dinners. However, to a person the comments followed the line "Best Business Dinner" ever. This comes from a group average age 55 that have traveled the world. Can't wait to get back.

This was our third time in three years. Pricey, but worth every penny/dollar. From the delicious Tito's martini, to the bone in ribeye, baked potato, sautéed spinach, everything was superb. Make reservations far enough in advance. Place was full by 7:00. Last, but not least, have the strawberry shortcake for dessert. FEEDS TWO!

Fabulous food, excellent service, and a classic rat-pack steakhouse atmosphere make this restaurant worth a visit! Don't miss the strawberry shortcake!

Now I know why there is no pricing on the websites... very expensive! Great service, atmosphere of a 70-80's old steak house. Was not worth the prices.

Recently visited & was left feeling a bit underwhelmed! Party of 6, 1/2 of the group loved Durants & 1/2 felt it was just ok! Really cool old school steakhouse, neat ambiance. Waiter was good but really took his time (so that we would continue to drink more wine!) 3 hours for dinner, a little too long! Took 1 hour... More
