msdb restorehistory has restore_date (restore_start_date) column only.  It would be helpful if both restore_start_date and restore_finish_date are available.  The same as backupset table has both backup_start_date and backup_finish_date.  It is easy for DBA to get backup/restore duration via query.

Thank you for your suggestion, however this is not on our roadmap for any near-term releases.
I am accordingly closing this DCR.

Not a Workaround so I'm posting this info here.

SQL 2005 and 2008 R1: The only whay to find the date/time of a restore is to read the sql error log.

That is a very useful suggestion.
We will attempt to include this in the next major release of SQL Server.
