Dante's Kitchen is probably my favorite uptown restaurant - even beating commander's on almost every occasion. This last visit was perfect except for the overdone toast. When we sent it back, we were told "that's how it's made here", but I've never had the burnt toast there before. Sure enough, other people were also receiving the slightly blackened toast. Our bread was replaced with some dark brown toast that did not over-power the remainder of the 'soppings.' The rest of the food was amazing - chicken under a brick is a gem. Amazingly tasty.
Loved it. Very cosy, homely feel and all ingredients were fresh. All items were freshly prepared
Love the emphasis on farm to table vegetables and incorporation of vegetables as entree
Very good place. Perfect for a romantic date or a meal with friends.
Exceptional service from all live all of the organic food choices.
Why go into the quarter when you can have a great meal uptown? Food was fresh, flavorful, and unique. Plenty of street parking. Quiet, safe part of uptown. Good variety of food.
We are glad we tried this restaurant. Larry was a great waiter, they were busy so there were some long waits between him stopping by. We were seated in the front area of the restaurant and that ambiance seemed the most sterile; would like to have seen the other rooms. Would request a different table if we go back. I had the vegetarian platter and it was delicious but a bit pricy for what was on it.
Food was great, service was a little slow, outside ambience was nice, but loud beside river rd
Service was slow with not all table filled, and the steak was very overdone, but staff was friendly, and the food was excellent and the outdoor courtyard atmosphere was quite cozy and comfortable.
Louis was amazing all of the food was exceptional love the lemon tart!
This was first time dining there but we will return. The service was friendly. The food was great. And there is no problem to park.
Dante's Kitchen has been on my list for years, and we finally had the chance to try it out for our 10 year anniversary. The food was amazing and a really cool atmosphere. I ordered the Chicken Under A Brick - it lived up to it's reputation. We will be back!
We arrived after the Saints game and were seated promptly. All was good except the Duck entree was very fatty and chewy. I was not able to eat about 1/3 of the duck. The sides were quite tasty.
Great food in a casual atmosphere, and reasonably priced, too. The chicken under a brick is unreal.
Too long a wait after having arrived with a reservation.
Nowhere to stand as you wait. The greeter suggested standing outside, although it was near freezing that night.
New Years Eve
Food was ok, but it was New Years Eve. Would try it again on a regular night. Service was a bit chaotic.
great place with good food. it has very interesting combinations of food for your palette
Highlights included the bone marrow with escargot, the seared duck breast, and side dish of ratatouille. The service was friendly and drinks were fantastic.
Only drawback I can see are that the tables are close together - so you do know the next tables conversations (including fights by nearby couples!).
Overall recommend highly for a great meal.
We heard about Dante’s Kitchen on Beyond Bourbon Street and decided we had to try it out. It definitely did NOT disappoint! We’ll be going back!
I sent folks (4) for a business meal (Candidate Interview). They all enjoyed their meals, desserts, the service, and the atmosphere very much. A few from the area had never been before and both noted that they will make sure that Dante's Kitchen is on their list to return to.
Very nice dinner. Good cocktails and good service. Quiet and easy to park and such.
Our waiter, Malcolm, was outstanding and made our dinner special. Very knowledgeable, friendly and set the atmosphere for a cozy meal with friends. Excellent service, food and experience at Dante’s Kitchen!
Hostess was not terribly pleasant. Food quality not as good as it used to me. Even their molasses corn bread was not good!
Dante's was very good. Good cocktails, and reasonably priced wine list. Escargot with bone marrow was very good as is the seafood hot pot. Very tasty redfish and beef cheeks. A great place for vegetables as well.
This is a more casual neighborhood restaurant with great food. The "hot pot" of seafood was quite good. Full bar and a decent wine list.
Our meal was fabulous!
Our service was fabulous!
We had not been to Dante's Kitchen in a while and our friends had never dined there. We all loved it.
We love Dantes kitchen. They have the best seasonal vegetarian plate. The chicken under a brick is fantastic as well. We shared with them that we had just gotten married and they brought out champagne toasters. It was great.
Always fantastic, never disappoints! We bring our out of town guests consistently, as we did this time, and they are always blown away.
Food was delicious and staff very accommodating with my kids.
This was the first time dining here, following the recommendation of a friend.
Food did not disappoint. Very nice wine list.
Service was a little slow.
Used to adore this place. Would always recommend to visitors out of all the options available in the city. This establishment is now going through the motions without the courtesy of at least pretending to care. There are a million excuses to be made as to why one or even two of the staff might have been having a bad night-get it. The entire staff acted as if it was pure torment to be forced to interact with us. Our reservations were for 8:30 on Saturday. We may have been a ten minutes late but we were not keeping a table from being seated. We were seated in the bar, next to the ingress/egress to the kitchen. Mind you 8:45 at latest. Thankfully we were in the bar because bartender was most professional of the lot. Ordering rushed, items forgotten, including an entree, had to ask to order wine after list picked up immediately after ordering. Food was lackluster versions of same standards. I felt uncomfortable enough when the chairs started being placed on tabletops to tell bf (whose birthday it was and who wanted to 'dine' here again) we were leaving, sorry but I didn't feel like putting this group out any further than we had already. He was upset but when I clued him into the drama occurring among the owners and staff, it was just bizarre, he agreed. Just checked my receipt--thought by way we were treated that it was past midnight. Nope. 9:59:27. Saturday night in the big city. Wow. Never again.
The only disappointment was that the "brisket was a little tougher and dryer than would have been expected". (This from a person who loves brisket.)
Enjoyed the experience of this house turned dining establishment. Off the beaten path, but well worth seeking out. COOLinary menu had good selections for everyone in our group with full portions. Interesting to have so many different servers to be involved with our table. It seemed like everyone working that night somehow was involved with us. Mixologist making the drinks in the bar right off of the side dining room was fun to watch. Spoon bread to start the evening was unexpected and a delight. Overall great food and drinks. Will definitely return.
Really nice place. Was impressed with my dish of gulf fish with lump crab. The herb combo over the fish was delicious and subtle. Had a reasonably priced wine list but a bit disappointed in wine knowledge of staff. Portions were good and happy to say the salt did not overwhelm any dish (find this is a common problem in NOLA). I will definitely go back and enjoy more!
Lots of fun and a great NOLA vib. Loved the experience.
We went back for the flounder! It is delicious! We had the seafood combo for an appetizer and would get it again!
We were greeted enthusiastically and seated immediately. It was our wedding anniversary and we were brought champagne. (Very nice touch.) We chose the Coolinary Menu and were not disappointed. Everything was delicious.
The best!! Lovely servers, delicious food. The complimentary spoon bread is such a highlight. And at the end of the meal, I was stunned by how little we'd spent for such an incredible night out.
Great as always!
