Excellent steak. Had the Filet & mushroom risotto. French wine. Halibut was delicious as well. I would recommend this restaurant.

Our dining experience was almost perfect. This is an expensive classic steakhouse adorned with dark wood paneling and timeless stilllife paintings. The waitstaff are exceptioally professional and knowledgeable. Our server did not steer me wrong when he recommended the halibut. It was my husband's 65th birthday, so he splurged on the steak and lobster. Both dishes and their accompaniments were... More

This past 9-11 was my birthday. My wife and I went to Donovan's on Camelback and 31st for dinner and it was fantastic. I ordered the peppercorn filet mignon and my wife had scampi . A nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon , fresh baked bread and peppercorn skillet fries with fresh vegetables rounded out my plate and my wife had... More

This was the 2nd time I've been, and after the 1st visit, I told myself I wouldn't go back (I'll discuss that later). I went with my son to celebrate his birthday. The service, as the first time, was very good. I started with the beefsteak tomatoes and onions - very tasty and not too filling - which is what... More

We celebrated our 53rd anniversary at this wonderful restaurant. They had a special table waiting for us and everything got even better from there. Our meals were cooked to perfection...the "wait-staff" were impeccable, courteous, friendly and genuinely concerned that we enjoy this special occasion. We hadn't been there in a while, but we'll be returning again in the not too... More

My wife and I went to Donovan's recently for a nice night out. Everything from the moment we arrived at the restaurant was exceptional. We had an awesome table, greeted by staff that would be taking care of us and really made to feel that this was a special evening. Our meals were excellent, steaks cooked exactly to the temperature... More

It was a stormy night in Phoenix, so we decided to pick our Saturday night dining venue at some place that had ambience, atmosphere and incredible food. Our selection was Donovan’s Steak & Chop House on East Camelback Road in Phoenix. It proved to be an excellent choice. The restaurant has complimentary valet parking which was essential on a stormy... More

I thought Donovan’s was fantastic. I had the 10oz Prime Filet because I wanted some leftover for steak and eggs in the morning (which I almost didn’t have because I ate so much!). It was cooked perfectly and as tender as it can be. I always add butter to my steak and personally I think most need it but that’s... More

I ate here for a private party in one of the back rooms designated for large parties. I had the filet mignon, vegetables and salad as I'm on a low carb diet. Others in my party had the calamari, stuffed artichoke hearts, stuffed mushrooms and mashed potatoes as well as pork chop and cheesecake. Everything was very good including the... More

My wife and I had reservations, we arrived and parked at the valet. We were immediately greeted and seated in the dining room. The hostess was very cordial and the dining room rich with warm woods and white table clothes. The server arrived and poured us both waters, gave us menus and talked about the restaurant telling us they were... More
