    Our visit was disheartening! It does take you back in time! I did quite enjoy some of our dinner. And the dessert Cheesecake satisfying. Caveat Emptor & Bon appétit!

    No windows, red velvet wallpaper, an entrance through the kitchen, delicious beef, cold gin, and stone crabs. What's not to love?

    It's a great place. If you don't eat beef like myself, they have some delicious alternatives. The salmon is delish.

    Not worth the money. Everything was mediocre and the waitress made several comments that made our anniversary celebration anything but memorable.

    Great steaks and seafood! I had the filet and scallops - both were delicious. The decor reminded me of a scene from a 50s movie - red leather booths, dim lighting.

    A Phoenix tradition. They don't make places like this anymore--get a banquette and pretend you're a mobster. Dimly lit and simply retro-fabulous. Just go!

    The best restaurant in Phoenix, bar none. End of conversation. Try the mushrooms as a side item, place it on the steak of your choice and begin to go to heaven. And I don't like mushrooms.

    Durant’s is a classic spot where the state’s power brokers often go. Experience it on the cheap by grabbing a burger for lunch or a glass of beer at the bar. Maybe you’ll see the governor. Read more

    Went there for my birthday last December. Some of the worst food and service that I have ever experienced. It was also some of the most expensive bad food that I have had.

    Go to Durant's and enter through the kitchen. Order anything on the menu and you will feel bliss. It's a time warp event back to the 50s and Dean Martin's martini hour.
