Easter dinner with family two years in a row. Looks the same. They need to at least move the furniture around and add new flowers or plants, update the wine list, and add some new menu choices. That said, we always have a good time, and order the same things. We are foodies from Washington wine country, so expect more.... More

What a great "birthday" lunch my friends and I enjoyed here today. My Cobb salad was delicious. My friends both had the BLAST sandwich- they gave it rave reviews. Our server, Melanie, noticed that birthday cards had been exchanged and offered the Birthday Girls the complimentary dessert. What a special touch to our special celebration. Ask to sit in Melanie's... More

At least once a month or so we hit the Thursday night lobster night. Half pound lobster, side, carb, and salad for $21.95. It's actually pretty good considering that finding good seafood in Great Falls is right up there with finding world peace. Paired with say a Chateau St Michelle Gewurztraminer and you've got yourself a pretty good meal. Been... More

We really enjoyed our meal. The ambiance is very appealing, the staff was very welcoming and attentive. There were plenty of food options (we have a picky group... One pescetarian, one that doesn't eat any veggies, one that eats low carb and one that is just picky). The food was prepared perfectly and the service was relaxed but efficient.

My wife and I and our two sons ate dinner at this restaurant. Food was excellent. I had the Walleye, my wife one of the chicken entrees, one son had the Flatiron Steak and the other one of the lighter Italian entrees. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Service was very good but prices were high which is typical... More

The service was slow and the attitude of staff was condescending and pretentious. These people are seriously over compensating for an inferiority complex. Traveled here from DC to see the sites. I know excellent food and service. This is not it.

One of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. I had the Rib Eye stake (no knife needed) I left here so full! The food was cooked to perfectly. You will not be disappointed.

Every time we visit Great Falls, we make a trip to Dante's from the amazing look and feel of the restaurant to the fresh ingredients, there is perhaps no better palace in the city. Our favourite dish is the bayou shrimp lingwhiskey...a delectable dish that reminds us of why we love Italian food so much. The prices are a little... More

If you think creative means 1970s food, think grilled asparagus and NY strip, maybe Dante's is your kind of place. Not so for me. No emphasis on ingredients, no local sourcing, no regional fusion, NOTHING that any experienced contemporary foodie would associate with creativity in the kitchen. The service was good, but the food was mediocre at best.

This is a "classic" restaurant with a "real" menu - not laminated folders standing on all tables. The service was spotless, and the menu was well varied. The food was prepared to near perfection. All-in-all one of the best restaurant experiences in the first 1½ (out of 2) weeks of travelling in this area.
