highly recommended. Maybe I'm spoiled as it was just okay. Loved Hong Kong Mussels but my entree was almost inedible. It looked beautiful when it arrived but the prawns were stiff and not very flavorful. A hint of truffle oil, but not something I would try again. Cool place. Great wine list

After a terrific experience at a reception at "Dante's Next Door," we tried Dante's on Professor Avenue and were not the least bit disappointed. Dante's is set in a beautifully renovated former bank. One of the tables is actually in the original vault - we'll try to snag it next time. Parking is a bit tight in this popular neighborhood,... More

The Carnaroli rice, porcini and red wine reduction rissoto is sinfully delicious, the banana and butternut squash soup with cinnamon foam and roasted pumpkin seeds was as comforting as Thanksgiving dinner, and the ribeye was tender enough to be mistaken for filet. The decor is quaint with some modern touches. The atmosphere is cozy and charming. The service is a... More

Pun Intended. Dante is a repurposed old bank with good wine, good food and a good staff. Appetizers were light and well presented as were the dinners. The menu had a good selection of specials and regulars. The staff was engaging and helpful when trying to get me a taxi. You will be happy with your evening at Dante

We decided to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary at Dante's in late August and we are still talking about the meal. We truly did not want to decide what to get so we selected the five course chef choice accompanied with appropriate wine. It was the right choice on the right night. Every course from the scallops to the fruit... More

I have been to Dante 5 times since opening, every time being absolutely wonderful. The menu selection is vaaried and inventive, the service is very very good, even on a busy Saturday night. I love that one can try many differrent items on the menu by having the choice of a "tasting" portion. The "tasting " potion, as far as... More

While my wife and I dine regularly at the restaurants of Cleveland's other top chefs (Symon, Bruell, Sawyer, Katz, etc.), for some reason or other Dante's (in Tremont) didn't creep into our foodie consciousness until very recently. On fairly short notice, we tried for a reservation on a Saturday night and, to our surprise, had no problem getting a booking.... More

We had dinner reservations for a Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and was seated promptly. I noticed there were only around 4 other tables that were being served. We ordered our drinks and appetizers which came out fairly quickly. However after that the table was not cleared until we were ready for our entree, bread was not automatically refilled, and our...

Everything here is really well done...neat art deco décor in an old bank building, polished and friendly staff...excellent food and service....really well worth the experience!
