Had a delicious dinner of shrimp scampi and my friend had a filet mignon. Au gratin potatoes cooked to perfection and a nice selection of veggies went with all entrees. This is a higher end dining room with average price of entrees around 40.00 to 50.00 and glasses of wine between 9 and 14. Lovely old style dining room and... More

Sat at the bar, to eat dinner while on business. Bartender and servers were very nice, polite and professional. They were fun to talk to and provided great table service all night. However, the food was just average and overall the food deliver was a little slow. Enjoy a nice filet, tomato / onion salad with a martini. Again all... More

Nice restaurant but my meal was just ok for what I got . Steak (6oz) was small so maybe my fault but with mushrooms as the "add on" I thought was not great value. Of the food that I've had all week I would say that it was ok but @ $80 I would go elsewhere. Wine and drinks good... More

We enjoyed our dinner and the server did a great job, but the price point was just too high. $50 for 4 oz. filet seemed over the top. We enjoyed it but won't go again.

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.

Thank Bill B
