Our visit was disheartening to say the least! Noting their fabulous ratings on the likes of Zagat, Yelp and Trip Advisor, my wife and I were dismayed with our recent visit to this Phoenix mainstay! Durant’s does take you back in time. Coming in through its front/back door, impresses you with the feel of walking into an old Speakeasy! You... More

Step back into time and the Sinatra era as you enter through the kitchen to this historic Phoenix landmark. Fabulous food and service awaits! My favorites are their enormous shrimp cocktail and any beef dish. This night I had their prime rib and it was excellent!

I chose Durants one of my favorite restaurants. Patrick was our waiter - perfection for the entire wait staff. But he was outstanding. We don't eat red meat, yes it's a steakhouse but we had a lot to choose from. I had chicken marsala which was more than I could eat. They start with a relish tray - old school... More

Durant's Steakhouse has been a fixture in Phoenix for at least 65 years and walking through the back door (off their parking lot) and being greeted by the kitchen staff--and encouraged to walk on through--sets the stage for the experience ahead. We were there for a late lunch and couldn't help but marvel at the décor. Deep red wall paper... More

'Old time' steak house, rich decor, very warm and cozy. The waiter recommended Three Fat Guys 2008 Cabernet which was delicious. We had the Blue Point Oysters for an appetizer which were fresh and yummy. The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection. I recommend the Italian Wedding soup instead of the salad ... nothing wrong with the salad but the... More

Enter through the kitchen like an old NY gangster and sit in the charming old-fashioned dining room with chandeliers and cozy booths. Excellent steaks and other perhaps healthier options. Prices are a bit steep for Arizona, but feels like you're eating in old New York. Good for business or romantic dinners. Highly recommended.

I have been coming here for 25+ years and I love this place. It's a step back to what dinning out should be. The staff is awesome, the food is awesome... walking through the kitchen to the restaurant is just as cool now as when I was a kid. Make a reservation!!

Just got back from dinner that I'll remember for a long time. You need to start by coming in thru the back door thru the kitchen. Enter the 1950's dining room that is not a recreation but the ligit deal. Our waiter Kenny G was as good as it gets. The food and portions are as delicious as the they... More

Durant's has been around for over 65 years in downtown Phoenix. I've taken many clients here for lunch. You have to walk through the kitchen to get in and out of the restaurant. The kitchen staff greets you with a big hello and come back soon. The service is phenomenal and there's not a bad entree on the menu. If... More
