Very thoughtfully well-prepared selections. You can't go wrong with any dish. They're all delicious.
We eat at dantes usually twice a year. We have been going there for about 4 years now. We almost always get the tasting special when we go. In let years it has been fantastic and definitely worth the money. But the last two times we have been there the food quality has definitely slid. The risotto with salmon course we got was just bland and tasted like something I could make (why spend all that money). The filet mingnon was a lot chewier than I remember from times in the past. The lamb was too dry for my liking. We never received our palate cleanser like the menu stated(which now shows all the courses in the tasting special) we would between entree and dessert. I understand that I am nitpicking, but when you spend that much for food you expect to be ‘wowed’, and we just simply weren’t this time.
The food was spectacular as well as the service. A five star experience all around!
Everything was really good! Only thing was, that there was no chicken option on Valentine’s Day and that’s what my date wanted.
Everyone raved about this place so I made a reservation for Valentine's Day. Was very disappointed to be seated in a row of tables for two that were so close that I felt like I was a part of the conversation next to me. Not very romantic. Food was good but nothing I would order again. Service was decent but took a while to get water refills. I understand it was a holiday and they were busy. Maybe I will try again on a normal weekend.
I enjoy my meal every time. The food has amazing flavor. The staff was excellent as always. We enjoyed the mussels as an appetizer. They are always so good, especially the broth! I had the sea bass as an entree and it was amazing! I have never been disappointed at DANTE.
The food and service were amazing. My wife and I went there for valentines dinner. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the 5 course menu Special for Valentine’s Day all courses were very nicely displayed and tasted amazing. Definitely will be going back.
The food is excellent and the service is impeccable.
Outstanding as always. Danny our waiter was the perfect balance of attentiveness and efficiency. And other staff actually anticipated our needs just by walking past the table!
Very flavorful foods, unique dining experience and perfect romantic setting. Definitely recommend for special occasions and date nights.
Dante is a great restaurant - the food is excellent. The timing between tapas dishes and courses can drag out a little - but they are worth it - and very accommodating. I would let your server know how you want the tempo of dishes to come out in advance. Or just go for the larger plates. Service wise - its a great place. The people that work there enjoy what they do. We will return again and again. A Cleveland Gem.
The evening was amazing and the taster menu was incredible
Excellent. Exceptional food. Excellent wine pairings. Very good service. Will definitely return soon!
We ate at Dante for the second time on 2/3. We were not disappointed. The food is just so amazing. I had the salmon and, since even the word "squash" makes me run for cover, the waiter immediately recommended a mushroom risotto to replace the butternut squash risotto. Heaven!
The staff is so professional and knows the menu and kitchen intimately. Such a great experience!
Great place to try a lot of the menu, tasting sizes were perfect to share with my wife and allowed us to order 4 different ones. They also were very accomdating with the dinner - we split the duo of duck it was delicious highly recommend
Dante's never disappoints. Food is very good, service is excellent.
Food was amazing, service was great! Love the atmosphere.
We started with the tuna tarter which was very good. Second course was past and it was excellent (as always). We really enjoy the ability to order tasting sizes (which are still ample). The Bolognese and Carbonara are both great. I had the duck duo as my entree and my date had the lobster ravioli. I’d say the duck was the winner as most of the ravioli was left unfinished and the duck was a clean plate (we shared).
Overall an excellent experience, nice servers/bartenders, solid ambiance and a reasonable price point. Will definitely go back.
Perfect night out!
We enjoyed the food at Dante, we opted for the tasting menu and loved each course. I do wish it had more variety as we had 3 fish courses (we like seafood but still it was a lot of seafood). The wine pairings our server David chose were wonderful as well. The service started out wonderful but as the restaurant got busier it began to lack some. Twice we were served our course before we had even been given our wine pairing. I began to feel a little forgotten. I also found the restaurant to be slightly cramped.
We were given a special Birhtday dessert which we did apprecaite and we had a very lovely evening. Everything was cooked wonderfully, my only real "compliant" was the service as it began to dwindle. We do a Cleveland tasting menu for my birthday each year and this was wonderful but not our favorite so far, mostly due to the service and lack of variety.
