After using valet parking, walk through the kitchen, viewing the many awards, and nestle into a 50s-style booth for a fabulous steak dinner. Start with the "Durant's Debris"--an appetizer taster of all the steak offerings that follow. The prime rib was perfectly done and paired with delicious vegetables. All salad dressings are house made and very tasty. Stay for a... More

Best thing about Durant's, besides the history, is when you park, you get to walk through the kitchen to the dining room. All the Chefs are super friendly and love that everyone gets to see the Action behind creating some of the Best Steaks in Phoenix. Located in the heart of Phoenix on Central Ave, makes this a land mark... More

Literally you enter the restaurant through the rear door, walk past the kitchen towards the reception area. Careful, watch for the busy waiters and their full trays. Our host attired in a tuxedo greeted us confirmed our reservation and we were escorted to our table. Our waiter also attired in a tux shirt, black tie and vest introduced himself as... More

My MIL really wanted to treat my husband and I to this meal. It is the most expensive steaks I have ever seen, but they loved them!! I had Prime Rib. None of us had dessert because we were so full. Service was excellent, and it really was a TREAT to go!! The red ambiance reminded me slightly of a... More

I'd heard about Durant's for a long time, was in town for business and met a friend there. The interior and ambiance was great, reminding me of a Vegas steak place from back in the day. Our waiter was very good too. He was knowledgable and friendly. The food was very good, but not sure it was worth the high... More

We regularly Come here for our Birthday or special event dinners. They have never let us down yet. You walk through the kitchen to get inside so you see the cooks hard at work, you also see how clean the kitchen is. Everyone inside the restaurant is very professional in attire and approach. You can grab a cocktail in the... More

Dinner was a remarkable experience in this "throwback" restaurant. The steak was perfectly prepared, and may be the best I've ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed our two hours on Durant's. Highly recommend!

The ribeye is one of the best steaks I've ever had. Cooked perfectly! Our server Vince was great and provided awesome suggestions. There is a reason why this place was packed on a Tuesday​. Strawberry shortcake was so good. So very good.

The food and service were superlative, but it was the most expensive meal I have ever had. I had been there a couple of times for lunch, for which the prices were more typical. When we got there for dinner after a great symphony performance, and saw the prices we were overwhelmed. However, we were there, we had had a... More

We received a gift certificate to Durant's from our son who had been there. Great décor. A little weird since you enter through the kitchen, but the food was outstanding. Our server was helpful but a bit slow. The ambiance made you not fret about the wait.
