Had a group at Donovan's. Service was done well despite our meeting being a little disjointed. The appetizers were fine but not exceptional. I had chicken and others had steaks . Both were very good. I would like to go back and a more civilized meal.

I really want to give a 3.5 rating but will give them the benefit for trying to make the meal better. We had New Years Eve reservations for 8:30pm and were seated promptly at a nice table. The wait staff was attentive and took our orders for cocktails, appetizers and main course in an appropriate time frame. Our calamari appetizer... More

Donovan's has become a must visit restaurant for me while in Phoenix/Scottsdale. There are a lot of fine restaurants in the area but this has become a favorite. Steaks are over the top and unlike other steakhouses they actually give you sides with your steak. Very good wine list but more importantly a quiet and well appointed restaurant. You won't... More

The atmosphere at Donovan's is elegant and intimate. This is not a busy, bustling restaurant but an environment to relax and enjoy those that you are with. The steaks are excellent, especially the filet minion and the bone-in New York. The cold water North Atlantic lobster is a treat. Truly outstanding! The sides are not to be missed, including the...

This is, in our opinion, one of the best Steakhouses in Phoenix. We've been going here for years. The ambiance & the people working there are the best.

The Donovan's Restaurant on Camelback Road in Phoenix is just OK...nothing exceptional or unique. There are much better options, in my opinion, if you're looking for a high-end steak house. The Service is very attentive and the ambulance is typical for a steak house that caters to the upper-crust and expensive cuts of beef.

We have dined many times at Donovan's, and both for leisure, and business. This visit was all business, and we were afforded a nice, private dining room, with dedicated servers. Though the group arrived at separate times, we were all shown quickly to the dining area reserved for us, and servers were waiting to take any drink orders. As I... More

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

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
