We had reservations at Durant's for 5 PM because of a show we had tickets for afterwards. We were greeted and seated right away. We also noticed for 5 PM, there were already quite a few people being served. The decor was very old-school but classy. The walls were made of dark wood and there were historical references via pictures... More

This is normal. Had a good martini and GF a nice glass of cabernet. Ordered 1/2 doz raw oysters that were fresh and cold. Excellent.... More

Be sure to make a reservation. Felt like a gangster of olden days by entering the "back door" and walking thru the kitchen to find a comfortable bar that many celebrities have drank the fabulous cocktails. We were seated in the dining room filled with large booths. We requested flowers at our table and was not disappointed by the excellent... More

Decided to take a quick lunch trip across the street from my work to take my sons out for their birthdays. Knowing that it was pot roast day, I brought them to Durant's. I asked for a booth and was told that even though I did not have a reservation I could still get a booth for the three of... More

Party of 10. None of us normally enjoy large party business dinners. However, to a person the comments followed the line "Best Business Dinner" ever. This comes from a group average age 55 that have traveled the world. Can't wait to get back.

This was our third time in three years. Pricey, but worth every penny/dollar. From the delicious Tito's martini, to the bone in ribeye, baked potato, sautéed spinach, everything was superb. Make reservations far enough in advance. Place was full by 7:00. Last, but not least, have the strawberry shortcake for dessert. FEEDS TWO!
