Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined at Dante's numerous times and have been disappointed one time ( I guess everyone is entitled to a bad day now and then). Dante is a genius with his combination of flavors; he puts items together that simply blend and compliment each other. I was concerned when he began opening other restaurants fearing the quality and uniqueness of dishes would dissipate, fortunately it has not happened. We have dined in Tremont and in Akron and both are outstanding; please do not ever change your approach to providing a unique dining experience. We will be back!"

  • "Had a gift certificate so I took my sister as a "Bon Voyage" dinner before she moves to Florida... Service was great! Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Décor was beautiful! Gorgeous glass chandelier is a must see, and an old bank vault with a table for dining would make for a great special occasion splurge! I would definitely visit again."

  • "Everything about Dante surpassed the high expectations others had set for it. The service was both attentive and informative yet friendly and casual, balancing the overall elegance and comfort that Dante encapsulates so well. To say the food was delicious would be an understatement, but once again the true success was in its ability to be impressive yet not intimidating. I'd definitely recommend Dante to anyone who enjoys creative and wonderful food, yet gets turned off by overly fancy or self-conscious dining."

  • "Eating at Dante is an experience. The menu options are utterly delightful and will have you salivating from the start. The food presentation is exquisite and it was truly a place where I felt I could go back several times and have a extremely different culinary adventure with each trip."

  • "Continues to be one of Cleveland's very best restaurants and provides good value. The pasta and soups are particularly outstanding and so are the wine and cocktail offerings."

  • "A lot goes into making a good restaurant, and Dante seems to have it all figured out. It was not what I would call quiet, but we easily talked across the table without shouting. I would describe the atmosphere as vibrant, fun, and sophisticated. The food, presentation and service were all great."

  • "Took a couple that have never been there before and they experienced an outstanding meal. They liked the idea of the tasting, sampling, etc with their meal. This way they could mix and match entre's. I have been their before and I always have experienced great ambiance and great tasting meal."

  • "Ambiance hindered by noise level. Also, tables along the bench in the middle -- are so close to each other that there is no privacy at all. Other than that, food was very good; somewhat limited menu and wine list. highlight of meal was the lobster spring roll. Corn bisque also very good."

  • "We ordered the Food & Wine pairing menu and Katie made our dining experience very special. Every course was amazing! Expensive but worth every penny!!!! The service was perfect and the food experience was one of our top experiences in the world of dining! We dine at upscale specialty chef restaurants whenever we have the opportunity and Dante is in a class of its own. We loved that service was perfect and not stuffy at all. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is perfectly executed and was incredibly delicious! I have celiac disease (gluten intolerance) and my food pairing was wonderful ( a lot of flavor and great sauces, unlike some chefs who think that they have to make things plain."

  • "Dante was everything I hoped it would be. The food was wonderful and the service was top notch. They were willing to cater to any food restrictions we had, which is so nice to find."

  • "Two of our five guests had never been here before and LOVED it! We sat in the front window table which gave us good table space for all the plates we ordered. We started with the Calamari appetizer then moved onto multiple different items in the different sizes which the guests liked. All of our items were perfectly prepared and portions were plentiful. Katie was our server who was personable and efficient. A shout out to Phil the General Manager who took my requests on wine and stayed on budget and brought us a few bottles we had not enjoyed before. Can't wait to come back."

  • "Service was very good, although we had to wait a little while before someone came to get drink order. Our cocktails were very well made, and they didn't skimp on the blue cheese olives for our dirty martini. The lobster spring roll was tasty, and quite filling, if expensive. For our entrees we got the rabbit saddle with homemade gnocci and mahi mahi with grilled peaches, both of which were delicious. The desserts looked great, but we didn't have room, so we'll have to come back another evening."

  • "For the 3rd year in a row, my bride and had dinner at Dante's to celebrate our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Again, a great menu that is difficult to deal with because there are so many dishes we wanted to have. We are learning though to split some things so that we get get more tastes. Generally we do not order dessert, but we consistently break that rule at Dante's. Outstanding dessert menu. This is out favorite restaurant in town Very nice happy hour specials as well."

  • "We had a late night dinner reservation. Everything was ready when we arrived. The valet service helped since it was raining. The bar was really alive but we went to a quieter room where we were met immediately by our waiter. We were new there, so the waiter explained the menu and helped us with our selections. You can get taster size, appetizer size, or full course on many of the items. Everything was served with an elegant presentation and taste was wonderful. They have an ice cream sampler (4 kinds( from a long list of homemade ice creams) that was a great dessert. Forgot to mention the baked right there and is delicious. We had to hold back to be sure we had room for the delicious courses that followed. Highly recommended."

  • "a group of us went here for my sister's birthday. The food lived up to all the hype that it got on reviews I had read, we all tried different dishes and all turned out amazing. I am vegan and they were able to accommodate my needs, while still maintaining wonderful flavor combinations. My sister said it was one of the best meals she ever had. Our waitress Katie was so cool, and she gave us great ideas. They also gave my sister a drink on the house and a bday dessert!!!! We cannot wait to come back, everything was perfect."

  • "Really wonderful innovative restaurant. I recommend coming with a person or people who are willing to share - the menu is a lot of small to medium plates. My suggestions: Order the Tuna Tartare appetizer. It is seriously one of the best dishes I've ever had. Order tastings of all 3 pastas. They change from time to time and they are always incredible. Try the polenta. So good. Duck and Mahi Mahi were excellent as well. Our server was fantastic (don't remember her name) and very knowledgeable. The only down side was the pacing - some of the dishes took a while to come out. I have not experienced this in previous visits though - maybe the kitchen was just backed up. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Celebrated my husband's birthday at Dante this past weekend. Began with specialty cocktails & wine by the glass. Starters included oysters, goat cheese tart, calamari & shrimp. All were excellent! Oysters were fresh & perfectly briny. Warm goat cheese tart had a balsamic glaze. Calamari & shrimp were cooked perfectly and had a delicious dipping sauce. Next we shared two different polentas & greens. The pork one was our favorite, but both were excellent. Greens were a nice contrast. Had a wonderful bottle of Italian red wine for dinner. Entrees included ribeye, rabbit & ravioli. All were very good, although not quite as amazing as appetizers (maybe we were getting full). Dessert was an almond joy creation & after dinner drinks. Great meal!"

  • "I went with 2 other people and we got the 5 Course Meal for $65. The Chef chooses which dishes to serve for each course, but is willing to cater the menu to any of the diners specifications. First dish was tuna tartar, which I had never had before but was delicious. The second was lobster spaghetti. The third was duck. Then a dessert like dish to cleanse the palate. And, finally dessert. Every dish was top of the line. The service was great, attentive and informative. We really couldn't ask for a better experience."

  • "I think Dante is the finest chef in Cleveland. All of my guests were satisfied++wit the offerings and the service. I love Dante's Next Door for lunch...innovative and quality. The personnel are well trained and very friendly. The menu is varied, but the emphasis is on quality, both of the food and preparation."

  • "We had a great start with a excellent bartender making crushable cocktails as he called them:) Then continued with three courses that got better and better. The pasta carbonara was outstanding with the best homemade noddles I have ever had. We have frequented many ohio city and tremont area restaurants and this ranks at the top!!"

I highly recommend the tasting menu. They are also gluten free friendly, dairy free friendly, & vegan friendly - if there is something you cannot or do not want to eat, Dante will accommodate you with pleasure."
