We enjoyed our latest dinner at this Tremont restaurant. Their food is consistently very good. We were seated in the back room which is a bit more quiet than the main part of the restaurant. I started with the black rice app while my companion chose the cavatelli. Both were very good. My main course was the pork chop while... More

We were newbies to Dante and opted for the 5 course tasting menu to experience a little bit of a lot. Some have posted rave reviews of Dante and on the evening they attended it may have been "perfect". Such was not the case for us. Most courses were very good indeed, but the fish course of salmon with puttanesca... More

Once in a blue moon you have a dinner where everything is perfect. We had such an experience last Friday night with our family. Six of us had the tasting menu and the chef out did himself. Every dish was memorable, especially the variety of desserts we had at the end. All of the wine pairings were perfect. And the... More

This is one of Cleveland's finest and really truly excels at wonderful combinations, perfect presentation and service. The portions are perfect and creative. If you are in Cleveland this one of the best. Tremont is still the perfect foodie area to discover outstanding local and internationally known talent. We are fortunate to have such a great place to salivate over!

Ate at the chef's table at Dante for I believe our 5th time and once again was blown away. It is hands down the best restaurant experience and food in Cleveland. This time. Was treated to a salmon tartar in a bean purée for first course, a lemon spaghetti with octopus for second course, striped bass for third, NY Strip... More

Ok, so to be honest, when I looked at their menu online I picked out a few dishes that I would try and the others were a little bit "out there" for me since I'm not an adventurous foodie. I am SO GLAD I tried out this restaurant. Their risotto, lobster ravioli, and pasta Bolognese were absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious!! The... More

Celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary and it was outstanding. Michael was our server and he was very knowledgable about the menu and made great recommendations. He holds several wine certifications and has a very deep understanding of wines, especially the Italian grapes. We had the five course tasting menu with the wine parings. This was not your normal tasting, there... More

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night. The best restaurant I've ever tasted in the Cleveland area...so far at least! This place has personality, in the decoration and in the plates! Beautiful food presentation, right combination of flavors and amazing fresh products...totally worth the price! I particularly recommend the rabbit, not something you'll see on... More

My husband and I came to Dante's for our last date night in Cleveland before we hit the road and move to California. We wanted to go above and beyond and do something truly special. Dante's did just that, it was such a beautiful evening and we had a spectacular time. I love that the second you enter, you not... More

Was here twice in July one for a reception once for a seated dinner for a large group. Both were excellent - the food was spectacular and the service was top notch. The dishes were interested, well prepared, and well presented. I would highly recommend this great spot.
