    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    BusyMom
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    Dante was a nice night out. Not THE BEST meal I've ever had in Cleveland, but still delicious and beautifully presented. However, it was a bit pricey for two tastings, two entrees, and the dessert tasting. With no alcohol, the meal still came to $100. Not a huge deal, since we had a gift certificate to cover most of the meal, but we probably wouldn't have gone to eat there without it. The service was great, and the waitress helped explain the slightly confusing layout of the menu. The spacing was a bit tight, and the noise level was moderate, but not overbearing. I'd say the highlights of the whole experience were the beautiful chandelier in the center of the ceiling, the delicious dessert tasting, and the fun candy cart at the end.

Even the bus boys and the managers walking the room. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The food was excellent. I got the special of the night and it was so good. The soups and appetizer we got were great too. I can't wait to go back again.

    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.)
