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

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.
