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 get a drink, could not get bartender's attention. Most guests sitting at the bar were eating dinner at the bar so no way to squeeze in to order a drink without being rude. We had reservations so we asked to be seated. The place was mobbed, we were seated in a very high traffic area. Felt like a rush job to get us through dinner. We certainly were not dinning which was the intent. So noisy we could not hear each other for casual conversation. Steaks were a C+ maybe a B- . My New York strip was over cooked. Dinner for four, drinks and no wine was about $550 with tip. About what one expects to pay at a high end steak place. Unfortunately, the meal, atmosphere, noise, lounge, rush job to flip the table and service did not live up to the price. In Phoenix and Scottsdale there are so many other great steak restaurants available, I would avoid Durant's and go elsewhere. The hype is not equal to the quality. Won't be back.
