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

Six of us went here for our quarterly nice-restaurant get-together. Dante is well known in Cleveland and is one of a few great places in the trendy Tremont part of town. The bolognese pappardelle was a hit with a couple of us. The pork, duck, risotto, rib eye were great. I took a 1/2 rating off because the lobster in... More

I've been here a number of times and I've never had bad food or service. Dante is located inside an old bank, so it makes for a great atmosphere. There's a vault in back that provides private dining and can be reserved. The menu changes all the time, so you never know what will be on it. It's bit pricey... More

First visit to Dante with friends. The decor is beautiful-ceilings are amazing-a step back in time. Waiter was very attentive and made great recommendations. Husband had duck and thoroughly enjoyed it. Two of us had the salmon and was not disappointed, it was a bit rich though. Indicated I had a gluten sensitivity and the waiter quickly told me what...

We had our 15th wedding anniversary here and ordered the six course wine tasting dinner. It was beyond superb and the wine was perfectly paired. Service was top notch and the way they explained the wines were not pretentious but put into familiar terms. We will go again and again and would highly recommend this restaurant.

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
