Great Falls seems to specialize in hamburgers but my husband and I wanted a wider set of choices. Dante's is located in a very interesting foundry building and they have a full bar and and pretty nice menu. The food is good and the service is attentive. If you like a spacious atmosphere that is relaxing, consider Dante's.

We make a point of dinning here on our trips to Great Falls. Food and service always excellent. Really appreciate the availability of gluten free bread and pasta choices. Fine creative dining with a casual environment.

Love the lunch menu, this is my favorite place for business lunches. The lighting is great, the food is wonderful, the the music level is low, the tables are spaced apart from each other, perfect atmosphere for business lunch and dialogue.

This is a hard restaurant to review in that it is a nicer restaurant in a town that leans heavily towards more casual settings and fares. It's also not quite what its name implies. Dante's is part of a small complex of offices in a former foundry building. It appears to have been decorated in the 1980s or early 1990s... More

Best happy hour ever. 1/2 price appetizers, the deep fried shrimp popper are so good! Drinks are good, the mushrooms, the only thing that was bad is the internet, they don't have any for customers.

Waitress was very friendly and professional. For lunch had a Reuben sandwich that was very good. Atmosphere was very relaxing.

Excellent food and service and kind of "high end" for Great Falls. White tablecloths on all the tables and cloth napkins- food well prepared and tasty. would totally make a return trip!

I had read good and bad reviews on trip advisor, so I was curious what the story was. We entered the restaurant from a corridor that showed pictures of this old foundry that was converted into office space and this restaurant. The first impression was good. The old brick melded with modern decoration - a nice ambiance. The restaurant was... More

While the atmospher, service and food was very good, I am very disappointed to pay a premium price for shrimp and and CRAB linguini. And find just 3 small pieces of crab in it. I feel that is being dishonest and I will not return. The price justifies a reasonable amount of crab.

Beautiful old building built as a foundry in the early turn of the last century (1909) and a restaurant since the mid 1980's its one of our preferred choices when visiting Great Falls. This visit saw the interior much the same as our last visit in 2014. They still serve a whole roasted garlic bulb mashed at the table with... More
