The only thing great about this place was our service. Our waiter, Josh. was really great. If you consider yourself a foodie, do yourself a favor and don't eat here. There is nothing on the menu that is healthy! Everything is very heavy and over done. The bread tastes like Wonder bread. They would do well to have a really good local bakery do their bread because they don't do it well. They give you roasted garlic with the bread but they drowned it in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I would have preferred if they served it alone and let me choose if I wanted to mix it with my butter or add the vinegar and oil.
Next we got a ceasar salad. I have never had a ceasar sald with veggies in it and no croutons until this night. The dressing was thick, sweet and there was way to much of it on the salad. There was also no typical after taste of anchovie that I look for in a good ceasar salad.
We had the walleye fish for dinner with way out of season asparagus and chipotle mashed potatoes. The crust on the fish was saturated with oil and that was all that I could taste. I asked if it was hydrogenated because it left a film in my mouth. My server asked the chef who said it was fried in olive oil. Which I think could be worse because that takes this oil over its smoke point.. The potatoes would have been best if they had just taken that roasted garlic and put it in the potatoes instead of dried chipotle powder.
Really, there was nothing creative about this place. I was highly disappointed. I was really looking forward to good food.
They also need to update the decor from the eighty's brass and plants look. Awful.....
Oh yeah, I live in Montana and I know that food can be done right in this state. We have access to great fresh local produce, beef, buffalo, lamb, chicken and more. Dante's should look locally and try to have a few healthy meals on their menu!!!
