    Everything from start to finish was wonderful. We were able to secure the table in the vault for my son’s 16th birthday dinner. Our server, Brandon was helpful and pleasant. He suggested a wine to pair with my scallop entree and it was the perfect compliment. We each ordered a different menu item and each was well prepared and full of flavor. We also ordered the dessert tasting which was equally delicious. Dante never disappoints. Thank you for making my son’s birthday extra special.

    I consider this the best restaurant in Cleveland. The food is always innovative but approachable. Disparate flavors come together in a perfect amalgam, whether it's calamari, risotto, pasta, or a main dish. The linguine carbonara is fabulous. The polenta and risotto are a dream. The fish, duck, and lamb are outstanding. I only wish they would give up on the foie gras for ethical reasons.

    Mussels broth was insanely salty duck wasn’t rendered well at all hence was super chewy and fatty. Lamb was fine but bland overall not near the standard of cooking you should expect

    Dante is our favorite! My wife and I both ordered the 5 course tasting menu. It was amazing! The tasting menu is off menu items that the chef chooses, and each course was better than the next. It is obviously a splurge, but definitely worth it. Our server, Branden, was outstanding as well. Make sure to get a reservation.

    Service was exceptional with waitress Alex. Food was delicious though the quinoa with the duck was an odd pairing...too gritty. The restaurant is a bit dated in decor and bathroom was a mess.

    We did the five course tasting paired when wine. Amazing!! Every dish was omg, one was just okay but still amazing just did not compare to the other dishes. We had an amazing server, she was very friendly and knowledgeable. When they brought out each courses and wine they described each perfectly. Great experience. More in the expensive side but it is five course and drinks paired!!

    Had a wonderful long evening enjoying the vegan tasting menu. We preceded it with amazingly delicious cocktails. The food was absolutely delicious and mind-blowing. Our server, Anthony, really made it such an enjoyable, fun experience and tailored the wine selection to us in a way that not only complemented the food perfectly but added that much more to the enjoyment of the evening. David from the kitchen presented each dish with great detail and excitement. All the staff was very polite and wonderful. Truly an awesome fine dining experience. I commend the chef and his entire team.

    Excellent greeting as we arrived! Our selections were calamari appetizer which was lightly deep fried and very tender. Our entrees were Lamb Shank, which was delicious and tender. Red Fish preparation was also delicious, fish just a tad overcooked, but still flaky. Our service with Kayla was wonderful, and we also had the opportunity to meet Anthony, and that was delightful! Thanks for another lovely evening at Dantes.

    The meal did not live up to Dante's reputation. We selected the five course chef's tasting menu, expecting it to be next level. The food was underwhelming, and in most cases, under-seasoned. The portions were too small, and we were still hungry when we left. We wondered if we were served the menu options that were being under-ordered by guests last evening, rather than unique creations that were a step up from the menu items, as our server led us to expect. Also, the two "preferences" of individual party members were honored (no seafood, no mushrooms.) But, the one request that was an actual food allergy, was overlooked. My wife, who is allergic to strawberries, was served a dessert with strawberry sorbet, and a macerated strawberry. The substitute replacement dessert that was subsequently served, was poorly plated and an obvious rushed attempt to throw something together. With all of that said, we will give Dante one more chance. Maybe it was an off night. But, we will order a first course only to begin. And, if wowed, will order the next course. If not, we'll pay our bill, and never return.

    Food was excellent. Seared Hudson valley foie gras, papradelle Bolognese, and lemon cheesecake were what I had and everything tasted great. My wife had fried calamari, I don't typically eat that but it was delicious as well as the sauce. Service when I went was mostly OK. Not as attentive as I would have preferred but it was alright.

    We were seated in the back room- it was cold- wore our coats. The front restaurant was lively, the back was meh. We were asked to move after we were seated- offered a glass of wine for the inconvenience- but it was never given to us and we were charged for it. Food was just ok. Server was not really interested in us. We won’t come back. A disappointing night. Did they treat us that way because of our reservation on Open Table?

    Way too long in between courses and main dishes were brought: 3 orders, many minutes passed, 2 more orders and a good 5 minutes before the final order was brought to our table. We did not like that.

    Dante’s did an amazing job yet again with “The Experience”. It’s is a wonderful option for a special occasion or to simply just enjoy the surprise dishes provided by the chef. Pair it with the wines and you will learn more about cuisine in 2 hours than you probably knew.

    We had four people for desserts only after a nearby concert. When the program ran late, I called to inform the restaurant of the issue, they assured me that the table would be held for us. When we arrived, our table was indeed waiting for us and we were served promptly and pleasantly. The dessert selection is quite varied (unlike many other spots I checked into). We sampled four items, all were excellent, with lovely presentation. Next time we will return for a full meal, based on the quality of these desserts, and the courteous and expert service and greeting, despite our being a bit late for our reserved time. The restaurant is unique (it was a bank at one time, and still has the vault, complete with door, and beautiful embossed metal ceiling) has quality touches, nice lighting, and was comfortable, temperature-wise. A real treat for all of us. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a pleasant, cozy and comfortable dining experience.
