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.

This place is a gem!! The service was awesome, the food was better, and the ambiance was the best!! Just a word of advice, make a reservation, this place is packed, even at the bar. So worth the wait and worth every penny to splurge on this place.

I'm a huge fan. My family had Christmas Eve dinner here one time... We still talk about it years later. They don't do trends here. If you're looking for the "real deal"....

As we walked up to the restaurant I wondered if we had made a mistake. My initial reaction was that it looked a little untidy and small. The door opened and I was amazed. A large, lively, and colorful restaurant was in front of me. The evening just continued getting better. I ordered calves liver as an appetizer and filet... More

Durant's is a culinary "institution" and there are good reasons why. Incredible service, a unique atmosphere, a legendary history and truly the best filet mignon we have ever had! While they were busy, we were never rushed and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. A great dessert menu as well and excellent martinis! The husband claims we'll return so he can take on... More
