Made a reservation 7 weeks in advance online for a special Birthday specifically requested chef's table seating, included our phone #, email, etc. Restaurant called two days before the date to confirm (kept saying "We'll see you Friday." and I had to keep reminding them the reservation was for Saturday). They said they "...only just saw that we requested Chef's... More

Went here and was lucky enough to sit at the Chef's table. We got to watch the kitchen staff create all of the food for the entire restaurant. As the different dishes were created, we would ask the staff questions about the dishes, methods or what ever came to our mind. each person would stop and answer the question or... More

We had a very special birthday dinner sitting at the chef's Table in the kitchen. I would note 6 is probably max comfortable seating. The way it was set up feels like you're actually in the kitchen while they're cooking. Pretty cool. 7 courses with wine pairing was the way too go. As always, the homemade pastas were the shining...

Our family gave us a gift certificate for the 5 course dinner with wine at the chefs table as a Christmas present. We opted for a Wednesday evening for a less hectic experience. Our server, Jackie , was excellent. Describing each course as to how it was prepared as well as the wine selected. Chef Dante stopped to greet us... More

We went to Dante on a Tuesday evening. The place was full from 6:20 to after 8:30. The food chosen that night for the 5 course tasting was outstanding. The wine pairings were on target and I was surprised that I liked them all (not normally a wine drinker). The atmosphere was calm and could be romantic. The guy in... More

Fantastic food in a fantastic location. Love Tremont and easy street parking. But if you want to valet, no problem! For 6.00 you can, a far better deal than downtown CLE dining. We had a group of 12 and the service and each meal was stellar. I had the beef cheeks and hubby had venison. Both the best I have... More

Made reservations for an anniversary dinner at 7:30 on a Saturday night. Seated by 8:00. There is nowhere quiet or intimate/good for conversation. The hostess was dressed like a street beggar and totally unapproachable--no idea how she qualified for the job. The overwhelming theme of this venue is chaos. We had no less than five different servers. The wait staff... More

We dined at Dante for our 28th wedding anniversary. While we've lived in Cleveland for several years, we've never eaten at Dante (shame on us). Our waitress, Stephanie, was wonderful and attentive to our needs. She has a promising career in the restaurant business. I ordered the 5 course tasting menu with wines, while my wife ordered a salad and... More

We had a celebratory Saturday dinner here a few weeks back, and were simply blown away. This was one of the best restaurant meals I've ever had. Try the 5 or 7 course tasting with wine courses -- it's not inexpensive, but really amazing. Service was perfect, appropriate, and food and drink are of the very highest quality. Highest recommendation!

We went on a Friday evening with 2 friends. They had been before and raved about everything. The two men both ordered the 9-level tasting menu (9, maybe 7?). The two women ordered from the simple menu. All was delicious. We were amazed at the size of the tasting menu items. All the food was exceptionally good. It did take... More
