Casual and colorful decor, great food and service. I ordered the mussels, which were delicious, and the beet salad, also very good, except that the spinach was unnecessarily overly salty. I would definitely go back.

The flavors, portions-for-cost, and atmosphere were phenomenal. Service wasn't the best - my companion and I like to order one or two dishes at a time, and keep going until we've had our fill, in one way or another. Our Server wanted us to order all our courses at one time. I refused, and she was difficult, but in the... More

A view overlooking the walk in was not great. The food was good and well prepared but lacked the WOW factor and was a little pricey for the portion. Nothing bad and worth another trip

I loved Dante's Kitchen. The staff is friendly and and restaurant has a cozy at-home atmosphere. The food is simply outstanding. I had the Chicken Under a Brick (cooked and seasoned to perfection) and for dessert the Chocolate Pudding (which came cold with a dense texture and rich flavor, amazing!) This is a nice trek outside and away of the... More

I took my son-in-law here for his birthday. Our waiter was fantastic, very attentive. The food was good. However, then a group of 3 people came in and were seated next to us. One man in the party was so loud I couldn't hear my daughter sitting right next to me. He proceeded to say filthy things unacceptable to be... More

Dante's is tucked away in an overgrown building that resembles a home. We actually walked by it once. It was worth the confusion. The interior is sprinkled with local art and has a hipster vibe found in riverbend. We took the St. Charles street car up from downtown and enjoyed the ride through a very posh uptown. The interior is... More

We came here without reservations on a Sunday night. Hostess said it would be at least an hour+. I went on Open Table and there was an opening, so I reserved right there and was seated in 15 minutes. While we were waiting we ordered a drink at the bar (there was really no waiting area). The bartender seemed annoyed,... More

The food is superb, the ambience inviting, and the service very gracious. The menu is a little out of the ordinary and that difference is welcome. There is a special facility with fish.

This place is a great place for brunch mainly because of the atmosphere. Don't get me wrong, the food is good, but I think I hyped it up a lot more due to some of the reviews on here. We went twice (for brunch and dinner) and I thought the service was great! Very friendly staff!

In an attempt to go to Commanders Palace we lost our reservation due to a massive thunderstorm. Looking for a Plan B without a reservation we stumbled upon Dante's Kitchen. What a delight this place was! The skillet cornbread was decadent; my friend got shrimp and grits which was dense and rich and totally creamy. For our dinner I had... More
