We ordered from the menu al la carte and was very happy with all of our selections. Salad, calamari, goat cheese to share as appetizers, two bottles of wines... More

Very classy but non obtrusive awesome dinner experience. I ordered 'the experience', 5 course dinner, every dish was awesome and they listen to preferences (I requested the tuna tartare-as you should). Don't hesitate to ask for wine pairings, the sommelier, Phil, is always more than helpful

To celebrate my son's MBA graduation with his girlfriend and her parents, we booked the chef's table in the kitchen. We chose the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairings and Michael was our waiter (perhaps guide would be a better description for him!). The evening started with Dante greeting and welcoming us. By choosing the tasting menu, each... More

So we went to this restaurant sat at about 5 oclock. It was not very busy at that time but as the night went on it got more busy. Allison was our waitress and was very attentive they filled the wine and water glasses when was needed. The food is very good and they offer appetizer plates at a less... More

This is an expensive restaurant for Cleveland . We had the tasting, each course was 3x the size it should be. We actually had the last 3 courses wrapped up to go. Also, each dish was just missing something. We really only liked the pasta dish. They should lower the price and decrease the potion size.

I visited my son this weekend and he had been waiting for me and my credit card to come so he could eat at Dante. He allowed me to enjoy the menu and then said we were having the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Luckily the Chef only had to steer clear of my dislike of fresh water... More

Weeknight. Not crowded. Looong wait for drink order after being seated. Based on this placed dinner with appetizer order. Long after appetizers had been cleared dinner was served. "Katie" was businesslike and said if we had questions we should ask. However, she only appeared once to ask for second drink order and at the end with the bill.Servers brought the... More

Food was very good however service was not. We had a reservation on a Friday night and sat at a high table in the bar area. We would think we would get a dedicated waiter, but every time someone came to our table, it was a different person. We asked multiple times for a steady waiter, instead of having them... More
