The Inferno was a day late

Had the place burned down on Friday, we may have had a chance at a good meal on Saturday. For those who have been dining in Cleveland for years, stick with your favorites.

I went to this restaurant with a friend; neither of us had ever been there before. There aren't a lot of options on the menu, but each option sounded wonderful. We each chose to have an "appetizer" (first course?) and an entree and we were quite pleased. I had a Brussels sprouts appetizer that was amazing followed by duck that... More

This place is fantastic! Michelin starred chef, Michelin starred food! Experience is what you expect from a high end restaurant but without paying NYC prices. Everything is fantastic, I would strongly suggest having the tasting menu. It is not expensive and you get to try several different things. They have excellent wines by the glass not found in other places.... More

I had the vegan tasting menu and my husband had the "anything goes" one. This was such a fun experience! The service was outstanding, and the food was exceptional. My vegan courses included a beet tartare, red rice risotto, mixed mushroom dish, miso roasted tofu and a key lime tart/sorbet. Everything was a winner, with the risotto and tart standouts.... More

One of the best meals we've had, the Chef's table with the new winter menu was outstanding. What a unique experience between the eight of us not a complaint, every appetizer and entrée was raved over. The meat tray sampler was a huge hit we shared, the Singapore mussels, and tuna tartar were unlike I have ever had, Our server... More

I drove through an unanticipated traffic jam, arriving at Dante for a medical lecture event/dinner. As fate or other might have it, the meeting had been cancelled without notification. It took 3 employees to find one with any knowledge of this. I figure at least the hostess should have been made aware. I also felt staff should have offered at... More

While Dante is a popular place generally, with a lively style and service, on special occasions a customer is usually expecting an added touch not seen before. We had booked our New Year's Eve at Dante, and surprisingly were given a 11:00 pm time ! Anyway we had a nice meal as expected but come the bewitching hour, there was... More

We had one of the best meals ever. Everyone in the party was very satisfied. We had excellent service. Last evening we dined with the same couple again and remarked How good the Meal had been at "Dantes".

A girlfriend and I stopped by for dinner recently. Being the holiday season, the restaurant was nicely busy. We decided to each have a cup of soup, both of which were delicious, we split the 7 vegetable salad, equally yummy. And then we each had a appetizer portion of one of their pastas. I had the bolognese and she had... More

My family and I dined at Dante the evening before Thanksgiving and were pleased to find that our experience met the high expectations we had based on reviews we'd heard from others. The wine selection and guidance was spot-on, and the the range of the menu's selections offered a pleasant conundrum. We particularly relished the salmon and sea bass. The... More
