Great ambiance, staff was awesome and chef made something special for my partner and her vegetarian diet. You can order anything here and it will be wonderful.

I visited this restaurant with friends and enjoyed every aspect of the visit. For appetizers we had the charcuterie board, all of which was made in the restaurant, and the tuna tartate, both of which were excellent. The polenta wasn't such a great hit, but all of our main courses, rabbit, scallops and smoked duck, were delicious. The atmosphere was... More

Wonderful location, beautiful inside albeit tight quarters! Has the chefs menu, let him pick everything and it was absolutely screaming out in wonderful combinations of flavors with a decadent visual presentation and excellent wine pairings. Wine list is great. Expect to sit close to neighbors, but a truly wonderful Cleveland dining experience! Also enjoyed the bar prior to being seated.

I travel extensively, both domestic and international, and this is one of my absolute favorite establishments. Great ambience, even better food. Service was a little slow last time but the food and drinks made up for it. If you can sit in the old vault, it's a unique experience. You HAVE TO try the linguine. It's excellent!

Went here tonight for the 2nd time in the last 6 months, and was as disappointed this time as I was the last. The food is tasty and the value ok. I recommend the tasting portions of risotto or the pastas. The calamari was ok, just not strong enough to differentiate from other fried squid. The lobster spring rolls are... More

Went on a Friday night. It was very busy, but we had reserved with Open Table and my husband and I had a seat right up front to people watch. (it was also much quieter there). The staff was very knowledgeable and kind. I had the tasting menu, The Experience, and was not disappointed. All the food was beautifully presented... More

This place has been on everyone's "Must Dine" list from the time they opened their doors. Overall, Dante rates a Plus Plus. Located in Tremont, it sets in a neighborhood of upscale new-menu eateries and old world casual establishments. perfectly suited to a pub crawl or an evening of serial fine dining. The building, itself,was once a bank, and customers... More

Want to treat yourself and your honey? There may be no better place than Dante in Tremont. We've been to Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco and honestly Dante treated us and fed us better than we can ever remember. They did forget the promised glass of Proseco for our anniversary celebration, but no problem. The 5-course menu was plenty (can't... More

If you are a foodie and want to to eat at one the best places in Northeast Ohio, you ought to treat yourself to a special night at Dante's. The setting is intimate and an old bank. You can request the 'safe' room, but that can be booked way in advance. Expect the place to be full of people. Don't... More
