We chose Dante to celebrate our anniversary and it was just perfect. The staff was very attentive and professional. We each had the chef’s experience with wine pairings and it was amazing! Would definitely go back!

We drove from Michigan to Dante's in Cleveland.. It was my birthday and a friend recommended this restaurant.

It was an amazing experience.

We had the "vault table" which was super cute. Our waitress Alexandra was outstanding and took the best care of us, along with Phil the manager.

We ordered the "Chef's tasting" menu with the wine pairing. Every course and every wine was delicious. We also met Dante himself :-)

I highly recommend this restaurant. I cant wait to return. The best 2 1/2 hour drive for dinner. Of course we were so full, we spent the night.

I chose Dante for my birthday gathering because I was curious about the elegant ambiance and refined menu. I could not have been more pleased! My experience was everything I could have wanted and more; my party was equally impressed. Our server Christopher was an absolute gem- incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and full of personality. I will be returning for my next special event!

Took son and daughter-in-law first time to Dante - raved to them the beauty of the restaurant, ambiance, decor,architecture- had resv for weeks and was very disappointed to be seated in the back room - walked through the main dining room elaborately decorated and beautiful to a room without decorations or ambience- felt like dining in a cabin - if I would have made last minute resv I would understand- we work front line jobs during this Covid season myself as a nurse and so looking forward to this experience and was extremely disappointed

Reserved a table at Dante for New Years Eve but they sat us in Dante Next Door by the bathrooms… totally different vibe then in Dante. The main restaurant, Dante was all decked out and lively. Dante Next Door where they sat us, had no decorations at all and different music. We felt isolated by ourselves with only an empty bar with a broom as our view and we only saw other people if they went to the restroom. Not at all the party atmosphere we were expecting. We are pretty sure our server kept forgetting about us too. Very disappointing.

We had a wonderful 5 course chef’s tasting experience. I was very pleased to see that they could accommodate one dairy free member of our party without forcing all of us to eat dairy free.

Some of the best food we've had in Cleveland. Tuna tartare delicious. Tartlet one of my favorite bites. Mushroom soup very good. Carbonara and ravioli were just fine. Duck entree was phenomenal. Rice on the dish wasn't very good and unnecessary but the duck itself was worth the price of admission. Cocktails were nothing special. Only negative id say is service was VERY slow. Much longer than average. Overall, definitely one of the better restaurants in Cleveland. A must go

Birthday gathering of 5. We opted for the tasting menu. They easily took care of all requests for allergies - one w/no seafood, 2 w/no nuts. Most dishes were from the menu w/slight variations. First was the taleggio tartlet or sashimi-grade hamachi. Second we all had perfectly cooked fresh fettucine w/light sauce, broccolini, and several pieces of pork belly. Third was either a duck breast piece or striped bass w/sweet potato and fennel hash and kale. Fourth was ribeye slices w/roasted parsnip and ultra-smooth parsnip and white choc puree. After a refreshing intermezzo, we were presented with dessert - all 5 of us w/different desserts, none of which I can say were on the standard menu. Very nice evening out!

We came here for dinner while visiting family for the holidays and had such a lovely experience. We opted for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Our server Kira was amazing, super knowledgeable about the food and the wines and she had just an overall great personality. We had so many delicious courses, tuna tartar, homemade pasta, salmon, duck, and beautiful desserts. All of the wine pairings were perfectly selected. This was truly a 5 star meal and we will definitely return next time we are in CLE!

My wife and daughter ordered the scallops of which I believe they only got 4 or 5 small scallops along with some vegetables for $42 each. Little pricey. My other daughter got the Carbonara and she did not even want to finish it because she said it was lacking in any type of flavor. Very bland. I got the 16 oz. ribeye for $48 and you would expect to have a good cut of meat for that price but it had a lot of fat on it. The steak overall was done and seasoned very well and tasted great. We also got the polenta which was very good and everyone got dessert which was also very good. Felt the cost for everything was pretty high for what we got. Service was exceptional and the overall atmosphere was very nice.

Food was fantastic and server started well but then it went downhill .. I purchased a $350 bottle of wine … couldn’t get a glass poured timely … had to keep grabbing other staff for help

Finally waited so long paid the bill the dessert never came and we just left

Pretty bad for such a nice place

Dante was above and beyond what we expected. We were seated in the back area, where it was more secluded and romantic. The service was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing. The food was perfection, we got the porterhouse for two and both loved it. Worth the price and drive!

First time here, was very excited to try. I had the grouper - very good. Other person in the party had the calamari app and the shrimp pasta dish. Both of those rated as average. Ambience was nice, waiter was nice & efficient. Overall pleasant experience but it didn't knock my socks off
