Interesting Menu, Very Good Service

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.

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

I loved the menu selection and found it hard to decide what I wanted. However, we all got something different and shared and EVERYTHING was amazing. I love the atmosphere, the bar area is both stylish and funky and the service was quite efficient. We had help picking out a wine from the extensive wine list and the waiter explained... More

I LOVE DANTE. Chef Dante Boccuzzi's menu changes seasonally, based on fresh, local ingredients and their availability. Everything I have ever eaten here was beautifully presented and delicious. I especially love the idea of having the choice on portion sizes, so that you can try several things, without committing to just one. I especially love his summer collection with tomatoes,... More

We had dinner here tonight for our 2nd wedding anniversary. I have to say it was amazing💜 we had the risotto as an appetizer, i had the filet mignon and my husband had the surf and turf. For dessert we had the tasting menu of the coconut desert and Choc desert both were equally great. I highly recommend dantes. The... More

This restaurant is a must. My husband and I and our friends visit often and have never been disappointed. The staff is very attentive and knowledgable about the menu.

It was our first time eating at Dante and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the delicious food. My husband had the braised short ribs and I had the lamb. Both were excellent. It was my husband's birthday and they surprised us with an amazing peanut butter and jelly dessert. We can't wait to go back to Dante.

I was looking forward to a wonderful dinner at Dante based on a glowing description from a friend who had dined there just a month earlier. Sadly, it was a disappointment on all levels; food, wine and service. Despite individual dishes on the menu that looked interesting, we ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Big mistake.
