    We were there to celebrate my son in law’s modified white coat ceremony and had a party of six. We were promptly seated and the wait staff did an amazing job. We had the chef tasting and we have gluten free and vegetarian’s in the party and they did a fabulous job of accommodating everyone’s needs. I would highly recommended this restaurant and look forward to going back the next time I am in Cleveland.

    Magnificent from start to finish. The portions were enormous . So much so, the server recommended us splitting our entree. Beets and it’s creative flair was a super starter. Carbonara as a second plate was rich and satisfying.(another split) 10 star evening.

    Food was tasty and portions were great. Pressuring people to choose their 3 entrées is not good. You don't give your patrons the opportunity to determine how full they are. Not everyone wants leftovers.

    Our server was superb! The only criticism I have is the cost: example 6 oysters on the half shell, though delicious, were a bit pricey. Could have been a full dozen. Overall it was a special graduation celebration dinner in one of Cleveland’s best restaurants. Thank you.

    Overall, an excellent experience. We had: the golden beet salad, the salad of seven-vegetables, the seared Hudson Valley foie gras (with pineapple and donut), the the linguine alla carbonara, the three-cheese polenta and the Canadian salmon. We split all of the above between the two of us. It was an over-order. The portions were huge for a such a fine dining restaurant. All were excellent, though I felt the carbonara was over-sauced (in Rome it comes as if glazed in the sauce rather than swimming in it and the additional poached egg was really over-kill. I am not a foie gras fan, but my date said it was really good and the donut/pineapple combination was lovely. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the white asparagus it was served over were al dente and were either peeled (which is how I think asparagus should always be prepared) or just plain tender. The waiter/kitchen were kind enough to split the carbonara and salmon for the two of us and even supplied a poached egg for each of us with the carbonara, which I think would usually merit only one - though again I thought it was egg overkill. Our initial table was not to our liking and we asked to be relocated, which the staff readily did to an excellent table by the door. The service was rather slow, presumably due to under-staffing though the restaurant was not crowded. And, the waiter must have misunderstood our wine order as he brought us a regular prosecco rather than the rose one we asked for however, as it was terrific, we did not complain. Overall, a truly wonderful meal in a lovely setting. We live in Chicago and Dante is on a par with some of our great restaurants.

    Exceptional service, food , and wine list . The menu is very creative, especially with the tasting, appetizer , or full dish with all the homemade pasta dish’s . OMG …. Delicious! The breast of duck was unbelievable! However , the three desert selection , provides tasting of three desserts . Heavenly! And don’t forget an after dinner drink of Vin Santo . You may want to sit at the end of the bar , and receive exceptional service from Chris the bartender, or sit at the safe vault table, or sit on the patio for outdoor dining.

    Dante never disappoints. The food is absolutely delicious and you are given many different options, including 3 sizes of servings if you want small plate approach or trying different items. Service is first rate and the atmosphere is traditional and classy, with less formal spaces as well. Best restaurant in Tremont and a too restaurant in Northeast Ohio.

    I rated service as not very good, but it wasn't our server, it was the kitchen that fell short of our expectations. We ordered the tasting menu and waited more than 15 minutes between each of the five courses -- and this was at 9:30 at night with only two tables near us occupied. I understand that staffing is an issue at all restaurants, but this seemed especially slow. The food was terrific -- the scallops seviche with plantain chips were very tasty, as was the monkfish and pork. The pasta was outstanding. The beef tenderloin was flavorful but a little tough. I did not care for the dessert, a cold custard (it looked like creme brulee, but was not hot). The wine pairings were very good, especially the dessert wine, but we got the wine well before the food in each case.

    Our Server Christopher was Great!! It was my husbands Birthday and we did the chefs 5 coarse menu. It was $89.00 a person which is a great value for all the food you received! They have wonderful vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options available! It took over 2 hours to get all courses. The tables have plexiglass dividers which as actually amazing bc you feel a little more private and you can hear your conversations better. Would I go back? Maybeeee Only draw back was: the chefs menu had 2 larger separate fish filets but the blood line in the fish was so much that more than half the filet wasn’t edible. Which is unfortunate bc that Monkfish was AMAZING.

    Christopher was an awesome server. We celebrated my wife’s birthday and I had asked for a special table on my reservation. To my incredible surprise, we were seated at the Chef’s table in the kitchen since someone else had cancelled. We had the absolute BEST time. Great drink, great food, and we were able to watch the kitchen staff in motion. It was actually less than anywhere else in the restaurant.Thank you so much for making it a night we will remember.
