After reading the what to do book, was intrigued by a neighborhood called Tremont...a city neighborhood undergoing a transformation . After a short walk around, purely by chance we decided on Dante.. If you love architecture, art, ambiance and food you have come to the right place...our experience was off to a great start with our waiter Keith. The calamari... More

Salty sauce and soup. Chef needs to lighten his hand with the salt shaker. Fish was good and the vidalia soup excellent.

We were in Cleveland and it was recommended that we try Dante's new restaurant. Originally from Cleveland, he wanted to return to his roots from NewYork! This restaurant is one of the best experiences we have had. The food was excellent. We started with the Grilled Octopus appetizer. Grilled perfectly and not the least bit dry. One of us had... More

We sat in the vault and it was a very nice experience. Our waiter, Michael was one of the best I have ever had and I would request him again and again and sit where ever he is serving. The food was different and original. He suggested wine pairings and his favorites on the menu. I was impressed. Bonus: a... More

We enjoyed our 5-course Whim Tasting Menu experience, but at more than $60/person, we won't do this often. Even though portions were smaller than normal servings, and we felt obligated to finish each, we were stuffed before we got to the entree. This may have diminished our appreciation and completion of the third and fourth courses. I don't see how... More

Wonderful handmade pasta. Some of the best bolognese I've ever had. The blood orange and goat cheese salad was truly memorable. The staff was cordial. I was with friends who are regulars. How we were treated makes me want to be a regular. The high ceilings of the old bank ate beautiful , but make the acustics challenging.

We had a fantastic meal at Dante's and can't wait until we can go back again. I agree that it's expensive, but I felt it was well worth it. I can't mention just a few things, because we ordered many different tastings and appetizers and loved them all. I especially liked my entree of Pappardelle Bolognese and the Coconut dessert....
