At $75.00 per person (gasp!....with no wine included), we stayed reluctantly and hoped for the best. Out of the four courses, one was tasty, two were average and one was really below average and there was... More

We came there for a late drinks and we liked it a lot. We did not order anything to eat there so I cannot comment on the food. Service good - great staff. Will go again.

I had not been to Dante's for many years. It used to be great 4-5 years ago. There is the fabulous view over the Charles River as well as a great terrace in the summer. But the food is just not up to par to the location. I tried it twice in the past 2 weeks as I was staying... More

We booked a reservation for a Friday night at Dante’s to celebrate my son’s birthday. We had read the TripAdvisor reviews and most were positive. When we walked in we saw the TripAdvisor logo proudly displayed. As it turned out, our experience was not very good and the food was terrible. Upon arrival there was no one at the hostess... More

Great food and helpful, friendly staff but the lighting is a little too subdued. The bar area is great too as we also went in just for a drink one evening.

A decent place to be able to dine at the hotel. Our waitress was ((Rosemary) quite poised and attentive, as were the support staff, but I should add, it wasn't busy. A real nice option are the smaller serving sizes and prices. The food was very good. I had the pumpkin apple ravioli, my wife the Gnocci w Short rib... More

My husband and I were looking forward to a nice dinner together. The hostess sat us down and my husbands chair literally blocked in the person to his right. We said something to the hostess who just smiled and said "sorry". We did not feel comfortable at all and decided to leave. As we were leaving an employee kept bowing... More
