I had been to Durant's multiple times over the years really enjoyed it. This time, it was an awful experience. I was at the bar and the service was terrible. Both bartenders paced up and down the bar, but didn't offer service. There were no smiles and the woman was very poorly groomed. I had to plead to get an... More

We made our Valentines/Anniversary dinner visit to Durant's and had a wonderful dining experience! Durant's is everything you could want in a fine dining night. The ambiance is old style steakhouse classic in every way. The service is classy. Walking in every staff person said a cheerful hi as we went by. The food, with a wonderful selection, is truly...

We love going to Durant's. There are enough reviews out there to tell you how great the food and service are. Can't contribute much more than this is the place to go to celebrate any occasion. The decor is so San Francisco with the cherry wood, dim lighting, etc. You can't go wrong making a reservation on Open Table for... More

I love "Old Style Steakhouses", always heard and wanted to try Durant's. We came partially for AZ restaurant week. I made the reservation for 7:00 on Saturday. When we arrived there was ample spaces for parking, no need for the valet service. Atmosphere was "Old school", great feel., busy, tables filled and moderately loud. Our waiter Craig introduced himself, we... More

We visited Durants for the first time and entered through the kitchen and were warmly greeted. We entered the restaurant to be seated at a table surrounded by other diners whose tables were very close together. Three of us ordered steak, asparagus, and baked potatoes and house salads. One person ordered a large shrimp cocktail for their dinner. Durants special... More

Lunch was great! A little wait to be seated. Food and service were excellent. I would definitely come back again. They bring a soup with the lunch specials!

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... More

Excellent cocktail and dinner options. The staff is outstanding! We visited this bar after the U2 concert and loved hearing the history of this bar. Great bar!
