Everything was great -we had an air vent near us which made us a little cold but very cool vibe otherwise. I was there with my 17 year old -I could see it as a cool place to meet friends.

Like the menu, food quality exceeds our initial expectation. Service is acceptable; but not strong point. Drink service seems slow at dining tables. Love the food and excellent price/value relationship.

My family went there for Mother's Day. The food was all delicious. The only drawback was the blackened catfish was very salty, but had good flavor. The bottomless mimosas were a lovely touch. I was very pleased with the food and the wait staff were amazingly attentive without being intrusive. Well worth the visit.

I made us a reservation, but the place was not full enough to make it necessary. The service was wonderful, our waitress was very attentive. I had the Dill salmon, the husband had the chicken salad sliders. The salmon its self was good but you had to fish it out of this thick heavy cream sauce. It was drowning in the sauce and in the risotto which had its heavy sauce. It was practically a soup. My husband liked the chicken sliders but they were nothing he or I would go seek out again. We may try it again down the road, but we were not overly impressed and excited to try it again.

Once again we enjoyed an outstanding meal at Dante’s Fire. The Thai Curry Shrimp and Parpadelle Diablo were delicious. Our cocktails, Cucumber Martini and Slow your Roll, were well crafted. The Adult S’More is always a hit.

Excellent choice for our Easter brunch. We were shocked that there wasn't a line around the block, since this was such a fantastic and reasonable brunch offering. We will definitely be returning, absolutely perfect experience!

Overall the experience was average. Not saying that means it was bad though. If you want to eat where the licals eat, this is great for that. After theater is also a good time as they serve their full menu up until 2 AM!

The combination of flavors is wonderful.

The breads: fresh
Dante’s serves the bread with flavored butter. The red pepper butter is great.

Mains: creative
I had the fish tacos.

Food was wonderful, service was poor unfortunately. Lighting as table terrible, could not read the menus. Maybe the lighting was not an issue at other spots in the room, but we were in the front cubbie table and could not see the menu, had to use the lights on our phones! So if not in any hurry and don't mind waiting awhile for your drinks then go because the food was very good.

There is a very creative menu with combinations of food that most restaurants would not try. They pull it off very well. The prices are reasonable and there are enough choices to satisfy most people. Worth a visit to try their menu.

As usual, a great location for our 59th wedding anniversary. The only suggestion as regards the Clam Chowder.............. serve the clams-on-the-half-shell on a separate plate rather than in the chowder (it was kind of messy to handle). They were served separate on our last visit.

We have dined at this restaurant not too long ago. It is one of the Tucson Originals member restaurant. Aside from the nice and quiet Christmas Eve meal we enjoyed...the young waitress was a delight to chat with. Always a treat, when we meet up with thinking, intelligent young people!

Great food. Great drinks. Best clam chowder ever and we lived in New England for 30 years. Can be understaffed at times, but them that’s there are friendly, efficient and fun. Our favorite bar/restaurant in Tucson.

Dante’s is always a fun and delicious place. The drinks were made to order. Bruce, the bartender was very personable. The fish tacos were very good. Fish was grilled perfectly. The Ajo Asado Pasta was both complex and comforting. The Adult S’More was, as usual, a big hit. The highlight of the evening was the Oyster Rockefeller. Absolutely delicious!

Interesting place. Comfortable atmosphere. Eclectic menu with solid, great tasting food. Drinks were fine except first cocktail had more ice than liquor. After that the drinks were fine. We'll be going back for sure.
