Diner Reviews
  • "I found DANTE restaurant to have a well-cooked classy meal. It's a great location to relax and enjoy a sip of nice wine over dinner."

  • "Great reputation but we caught a bad night. Tha fish appetizer was inedible and the server agreed and removed them I ordered the rib steak.It certainly was not prime. It was chewy and had gristle making it a bad choice. The server acted approritely and took it off the bill and offered a replacement and gave us a lovely dessert. We had a nice $60 red and my wifes pork tenderloin was OK.There were qute a number of youngsters so the noise level was high. We will try again but not soon. I almost never send anything back but for $36 you should get a prime steak."

  • "Eric our server did not seem likes his job. Three times we would be asking for something or asking a question and he turn his back to us and walk away. Very uncomfortable expirence. Did not offer suggestions when ask, just gave us a dead pan stare. My husband ordered pasta, and wanted cheese, he walked away and did not return for quite awhile later. He was rude. Very unpleasant experience."

  • "That was our second time in Dante. Wee took some friends from outside the country to dinner. Everyone was amazed with Dante. We have a 7 years old, and she also had a great time, in her words "the best pasta she'd ever had""

  • "Disappointed! Went at the end of May-- everything 5 star. Went again this week. Some of the same dishes were ordered, but the quality was way down. Chicken dry, ice cream melted, arugula salad had different texture, taste and perhaps even lettuces. Seemed disorganized. Something seemed to be going on in the kitchen and not in a good way. We will not go back for awhile, if ever."

  • "Our second time here was as good as the first and our server Sarah was a delight, extremely personable as well as knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. It was an excellent meal from start to finish. We spent a leisurely three hours over the meal and it seemed to fly by. I would heartily recommend trying the Chef's selections."

  • "We enjoyed our meal, using a gift card. It was our first time at Dante and we enjoyed sampling/sharing 7 different dishes. The best thing ever was the appetizer, MAINE LOBSTER SPRING ROLLS and the "house red" wine! Will def go back. Keith was a very informed, efficient, and delightful server."

  • "The Chef offers an "experience" where he chooses the food for 5 courses, based on input from the customer for $65pp. It was a special occasion and we enjoyed every course. It was a separate menu for each of us, given our preferences. We were full by the fourth course and brought some food home. Everything was excellent!!!!"

  • "It was a perfect dinner. It is rare to be able to say that but Dante was soooo good! I will miss this place. We started with the lobster spring rolls-delicious. We had the papardelle Bolognese-my favorite dish! And for our main entrée we had the miso glazed pork which was cooked perfectly. Dante is an amazing chef and he never disappoints. This night was flawless. Even saw a friend of mine there. Many memories!!!"

  • "I have dined at alot of restuarnats in cleveland and Dante is by far the BEST. Nothing can beat it. The mix of flavors and textures and consistency are culinary magic! Every bite from begining to end is a party in my mouth. The Chef Dante's course tasting menu its most amazing experience!"

  • "Dante is always outstanding. The service is wonderful: You can actually enjoy a leisurely meal, unlike some high-end restaurants where servers rush through to get another table. The menu is creative, and the food is fabulous."

  • "Went to Dante for my wife's Bday with my 15 year old son who is a food fanatic. Every food item we ordered was great. The highlight was our server, Keith. This guy knew the menu inside and out and explained things with incredible detail. You could tell he was passionate about food and his job. He was probably the best I have ever encountered in many years of dining at fine restaurants. Do not miss the home made ice cream especially the hot chocolate flavor. Awesome experience but on the pricy side. Will be back for special occasions."

  • "DANTE is one of my favorite restaurants in the Tremont area. The location and atmosphere is wonderful. Recommend reserving one of the tables that is close to the front window. Menu is set up so you can try many different items. Portions range from tasting, appetizer to entrée size. We had the Tuna Tartar and Maine Lobster Spring Roll to begin. For a salad recommend the Asparagus. Finally for the main course split the Chanterelles Polenta and Linguine. Cannot go wrong with any selection from the menu and all pair well with the wonderful wine list! Will definitely be returning to DANTE. Enjoy."

  • "Had the chefs tasting menu and all the food was really good. Enjoyed everything I was served. Appreciated the knowledgeable staff and courteous service. It was a bit expensive but I can justify it for the quality. It was a bit loud for a Friday night, but it was pretty busy."

  • "Service was slow, with long gaps between delivery of small plate courses. Lobster spring roles were very good. The Truffled potato and leek soup was good. The Pappardelle was good, but not hot when served. The Linguine Carbonara was boring and the Bhutanese Red Rice was very flat with no "key" flavor. Overall a disappointing experience."

  • "The Tasting Menu on visit #1 was filling, fun and surprising. The food on visit #2 was amazing, and we sang its praises (please bring back the chocolate box with banana mousse!). We highly recommend the creative menu. Because we loved those experiences, perhaps expectations were a tad too high this time. The truffled chicken entree with mushrooms was fabulous, but the snapper was not memorable. The Lobster Spring Roll disappointed. On visit #2 last year, I wished I had ordered two - the shell was light and crispy and the large chunks of real lobster meat were mouth-wateringly succulent and delicious. This time, it had the dense texture and flavor of fake crab. Excellent service (It's hard to write narratives here with characters limited.)"

  • "Give this gem 5 stars. Menu and food were terrific. Back room more intamate/quite. Dining service very attentive, not hovering. Bar service needs some attention. Overall a fantastic evening! "

  • "Enjoyed our selections, the Experience, which is a 5 course chef's choice paired with wines, but it was way way way too loud in there to really appreciate. We couldn't even hear our server describe what was presented with each course. I doubt I will return there because of the noise factor."

  • "My wife and I are new to Cleveland and we have been trying out numerous dinner places. Dante is defiantly in the rotation! Although the menu is not large it is unique in some of it's offerings. We especially like the meat plate appetizer as it have a varying selection of taste without being overwhelming. Also because of size on some of their dishes we were able to sample small portions without over eating. Most important was the service and it was good, with the right amount of attention without intruding on our dinner."

  • "Had the chef's tasting menu with a friend at Dante's and it was quite possibly the most satisfying meal experience I've had in a very long time. it wasn't what I would describe as economical by a long shot, however the evening was wonderful, the food was delicious and the service was attentive. Great spot, can't believe I'd never eaten there before. "
