Excellent all the way around

Last night we ate at Dantes in Tremont. Superb food, beyond outstanding service and a great setting. The food choices were varied and the restaurant had the great foresight to allow half orders and tasting orders of pasta. I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.

For an outstanding fine dining experience choose Dante at the corner of Professor and Literary in Tremont. The Vault Table semi-private seating is a focal point of the old bank building. First class service. Presentation with a Flair. Three different plate sizes for Hand made pasta and two for risotto. Ample seating, but would recommend reservations. Check out the website... More

Business dinner with clients. This was our second visit to the Tremont area. Electic menu - I guess "international" sums it up as well anything. A bit heavy on the meats, but fish, pasta and veg options are available. Cheese plate starter was amazing, calamari was as light as can be. The duck ravioli was creamy and delicious. I found...

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
