First course was undercooked, side on second course was overcooked. For the price point, one hopes things are cooked to perfection. Maybe the kitchen was having a rough night. Service was outstanding as was the setting.

Dante is beautiful restaurant tucked away in the Tremont area. The menu is simple and classic. The pandemic accommodations are impeccable. Chris was a fantastic waiter. He provided premium service. It was a wonderful experience.

The atmosphere was horrible. I mean truly awful. I had to yell for my partner to hear me across the table. We were surrounded by people who drank one too many and were yelling profanities and talking about doing drugs. I was expecting a fairly quiet night and ended up at what might as well have been a sports bar. I got the 7 course vegan option. Some of it was decent food. One of the courses was a fried whole avocado (wtf?). A lot of the food was cold by the time it got to me. I ended up waiting an hour between the 5th and 6th course and was almost ready to leave. In total, I ended up at the restaurant for 4 hours which is ridiculous! I’ve been here before but this experience will make me never go back.

The evening was almost perfect in every way...great food, great service, a well coordinated staff from beginning to end. My only “complaint” is that they sat us in “window seats” which are right on top of the radiator....HOT HOT HOT!

Pricey, but exquisite food; the Hong Kong mussels with crab was an amazing combination. The pasta was perfectly prepared. And unlike some high end restaurants, the portions were generous. 'Will definitely return.

I LOVE the food and whole experience. If I wanted to be nitpicky, I didn't love their music choices- but that was so minimal a part of our experience.

The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable!!! Our waiter Scott couldn’t have been more attentive and personable! We are both from out of town and chose Dante based on online reviews and I have to say they weren’t wrong! Thank you Dante!!

Amazing experience! Shrimp and calamari appetizer was the highlight and the complimentary round of champagne for our anniversary was a nice surprise! Great value too considering the fancy nature of the place. Recommend the lobster and salmon for the main course. Will definitely be coming back!

When I arrived waiting for my guest I had to ask for the music to be turned down. And, the whole time there I did not feel I was in a fine restaurant but in a bar. I guess I am now too old for Dante's because they are obviously looking for a young crowd. Too bad they cannot accommodate both. Food was good but too salty--I felt bloated when I left and could not finish my food because of that (and I did not have much). Service was very good, professional, and friendly.

Dante exceeded my expectations. My wife and I had the five coarse tastings, and none of the dishes were terrible. As a matter of fact, all the dishes were excellent. The tasting with wine pairings is expensive, but it’s worth every penny if you enjoy food. My only negative is that now I’m spoiled and don’t want to eat any other way. It was the best dining experience I’ve had since NYC.

Dante was an absolutely fabulous experience. My husband and I had the chefs tasting menu with paired wines. Derek was our server, and his love for wines, knowledge, and palette added to our experience. The food and wine were absolutely delicious and unique. We stayed almost an hour after closing, and we did not feel rushed to leave at all. I would highly recommend Dante to anyone who is looking for a great dinner evening!

Host very welcoming
Waiter attentive but not rushed
Orchid in cocktail- nice touch
Elderflower cocktail -great recipe
I can’t remember the last time I ate lobster - the way it was plated and cut was amazing, taste, sauce superb
Husband had 7 veg salad- what a bounty - so fluffed up in the mound of lettuce- veggies cooked to salad perfection

Holy heated seat! I am a freeze baby, so the sweet heated seat we had at our table was a great way to start the evening. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Cocktails were perfect. Food was amazing! We love this place and we will be back!

Who'd a thought beet spaghetti would be so good?? Well, I guess I did, I ordered it:) Always the world's best calamari. Also, always, the service was impeccable! The vault door table is a unique place to be, though I would not want to be there again.
