Had dinner at Dante while in Cleveland recently - it was a fabulous experience. We booked the Chef's Table - which is actually in the kitchen of the restaurant so you get the whole experience of seeing the food prepared. We asked for the Chef's selection, and also asked if we could each have a different meal so we could... More

Very nice patio! Excellent service, our server really knew the food and wines and made detailed suggestions. The calamari and shrimp appetizer is outstanding! The white tuna was some of the best I have ever had. My wife had the bolognese which is probably the best we have ever had. The summer menu will be introduced soon, so hurry to... More

The service and desert was amazing 😁 I am still thinking about the desert and filet. I loved being able to sample because of the choice of smaller plating I wish more restaurants offered that.

I attended a Bridal Luncheon as part of the festivities for my nieces wedding. It was fabulous. We were a group of 15 ladies and we were seated in a beautiful private room that was absolutely perfect. Featuring a large square table, which allowed us all to easily chat throughout the event. The room itself is just lovely with beautiful... More

When looking for a night out and a great dining experience I would suggest starting with location, location, location. And that location is Tremont on the west side of Cleveland. Set in a quite neighborhood Tremont offers a "Greenwich Village" type of feel. Although Tremont has many Top Rated restaurants I had my first visit to Dante this past weekend.... More

Dined as a party of 4, we were the newbies at the table. Ordered a drink from the bar and then sat at a 4 top on the left side of the restaurant. Bartender was attentive as was our server. The menu is laid out differently than any other restaurant I've ever been. You can choose several plates to share... More

This is my first visit to Dante and Cleveland, Ohio. The Tremont area is a lovely place and we stayed in an apartment right next door to the restaurant, making it's location perfect. After a long deciding process, I indulged on the Grilled Filet Mignon, garlic potato gratin, oyster mushrooms, sautéed spinach and truffle essence. The Beef was cooked to... More

I have been coming to Dante for years. The food and service is consistently superior. We had our daughter's rehearsal dinner at Dante and the our guests are still talking about the wonderful food and service. The restaurant is often loud Friday and Saturday nights, but worth the trip anytime. The menu changes seasonally, and the wine selection is very... More

Dante (the name of the restaurant and the name of the chef/owner) is one of my favorite restaurants on the west side of Cleveland, particular in the summer when the patio is open for dining. The food and service are excellent and the restaurant has several "different ambiances." I've tired of cookie cutter restaurant chains that all look the same,... More
