I had dinner here with a cousin whom I had not seen in years so it was a special occasion. We had a lovely time at Dante's Kitchen. The food was delicious and creative, the service was attentive but unobtrusive, the Sazerac cocktails were great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I (and sometimes with others) eat here 2-3 times per year, always reaffirms that it is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. We are a little biased as we used to live in the immediate neighborhood and Dante's was within walking distance. Quick rundown of our most recent meal - Halloumi and Roasted Beet Salad... More

This restaurant has excellent food and service. The menu items are unique and the server will gladly explain how the food is prepared. The presentation of the dishes was outstanding, and the food was delicious. We will definitely return to Dante's on our next visit to NOLA.

Dante's Kitchen is out of town and requires some effort to find, but it is well worth a visit. We ate here on New Year's Eve, having reserved a table in advance. We made the journey up from town on the green streetcar, and it is a short walk from the car stop. (Do a bit of research on Google... More

Service was great, food was imaginative, I am not sure how they make grits so good, but they do! Everything was spot on, just enough with out being over the top and not one of those... More

We came to New Orleans for the first time in 2010 and were told not to compare them to New York or San Francisco because N.O. was the best foodie town in the United States. We left not disagreeing with that statement. Fast forward to December 2014, we arrived fully anticipated to relive our culinary experience. The first few days... More

What a find! A local told us to not leave without going there. It’s in a tiny house and easy to miss. Had it been dark, I don’t think we would have found it. I had the carnita egg burrito with tomatilla sauce. Another person had grilled shrimp and grits. Sounds disgusting, but good food is good food! Amazingly different... More

Like most tourists we stayed close to the Quarter on our first foray into New Orleans...I will say we took a friend's advice who does visit often and took the St Charles streetcar to riverbend and had a most fantastic meal.
