We went to Dante for a nice couples dinner to celebrate the new year. We could not have been more pleased with the food, cocktails and the excellent service by our waiter Danny. We Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a unique dining experience in a lively neighborhood.
Never disappointed. Absolutely amazing like always!
One of our favorite Cleveland restaurant. Food is always perfect. Service is professional without losing the personal touch. The holiday wine pairings were outstanding.
My husband and I went to Dante for New Years Eve dinner. We chose the 5 course tasting menu paired with wine for $125 each. It was fantastic. I wasn't a fan of the first course so the waited substituted something else for me. The service was perfectly paced. We were not rushed nor did too much time pass before the next course. We had an early reservation and finished about 8:00 when it was getting busy. I would definitely go back. It was worth the money.
We had the 5 course tasting menu, I am so glad we tried it. So much attention to detail, even the small touches were amazing and memorable. Our server was perfectly attentive without being too much. We came in on a frigid night, out table was by a window and there were even heaters under the seat. I left having a wonderful experience.
Had an absolutely amazing time! Outstanding food and great ambience. It did get a tad loud due to the close proximity of other tables. Also, near the end, our server got busy and seemed to forget about us. However, I would definitely go again because of the food quality, server knowledge, and elegance.
Outstanding in every way! Delicious food, great service, and good value. Excellent wine list.
We went for my Birthday and it was perfect! The food was exceptional and the service impeccable. The price wasn’t bad either! Would highly recommend
Great food. Service was great. Would recommend. Would return when in Cleveland.
Birthday dinner with close friends
Very interesting, creative menu. The service was excellent!!
Consistently excellent, great service, fabulous meal
From beginning to end our experience at Dante was fabulous. Best calamari in the city! DANTE is always our first choice when it comes to dining out in the Cleveland area. We are never disappointed!!!!
David, our server, made us feel great. As always the food was fantastic.
Loved it all! Atmosphere. Great martini. Food was incredible. Jeff, our server was spot on. Wonderful recommendations and service. He made the evening.
This was our second dinner visit to Dante. We have had a drink at the bar on several occasions. The food and service were excellent. The decor and ambiance are very pleasing.
I heard someone going out the door saying "I think this place used to be a bank."
The vault in the back was probably his first clue.
If you go as a couple, you will probably be seated at a banquette.
If you are seated next to the Loud couple, as we were, it takes a little something off the experience. Nothing the restaurant can do about that. Just letting you know.
Amazing restaurant with a great menu. Service was top notch. The facility was converted from an old bank and the high, textured ceiling and vault door creates a great atmosphere.
This was our 1st time at Dante's and would definitely consider going there again. We selected the 5 course tasting menu as we feeling adventurous and we were not disappointed. Each course brought different flavors to the table and we enjoyed every course served. Our favorites were a celery root pasta dish and the strip steak served as the 4th course. I've never tasted a strip steak like this, it's texture and tenderness more like a filet but with better flavor. our server recommended a nice Italian red to go with the 3rd and 4th courses and it was a hit. Overall, a very good experience at a top shelf restaurant!
On par with Cleveland's burgeoning restaurant scene. Fresh pasta, however a little thick and a little too al dente...excellent wine list...would certainly return....
Delicious homemade pasta, I can’t help myself but order the pasta carbonara every time, it’s that good. I didn’t order dessert this time, but have tried the homemade sorbets and ice creams in the past, and they were very good. Our server was great, very attentive and friendly. It can be a bit noisy because the tables are pretty close together, but I’m ok with that.
We love coming to Dante's before we go to Playhouse Square. One of our favorites!
The food and service are always exceptional here! The hostess and our server went above and beyond to make an amazing night even more special.
Great food as always! One of our favorite places in Cleveland!
Very good food , duck , lobster, pasta all excellent . Fair price
I truly enjoyed my visit to Dante . I was surprised at the level of good service we received there, plus the food was fabulous. the fact that you valet cars was another plus. I would definitely return and bring others with me.
We stopped in for a late night dinner after the Andre Bocelli concert. Thank you to our server Jeff and the chefs in the kitchen, we enjoyed an outstanding dining experience. Dante is consistently excellent!
We did the 7 course tasting based on the server's indication that the courses were reasonably sized. It ended up being way too much food, and the server offered to wrap up course number 6. Unfortunately, they never brought us the wrapped course at the end of the night and I didn't remember it until we were back home. Very disappointed considering the quality of the food and cost of the meal. Dante's food is amazing but it is expensive. Over $300 for 2. I would do just 5 courses next time.
Excellente services, the tasting menu was delicious, the atmosphere was romantic and perfect.
We were a party of 6 last Friday. Everyone ordered something different: salmon, duck and pasta to name a few. We love Dante’s menu because it’s fun to try several “tastes” as well. My personal favorite was the lobster agnolotti, a house maid lobster stuffed pasta dish. Saving room for dessert was a challenge but our sever wouldn’t hear of it and sent over a dessert or 3 to celebrate our son’s birthday! The ambiance along with professional and friendly servers make this a spot we look forward to returning to over and over again! Thank you Dante!
Great food and great service. They were exceptional all around and made for a very special night. I️ highly recommend it!
It's a restaurant you will want to spend time there. Not for a quick meal or having a time line because you'll want to experience the presentation and enjoy every thing Dantes has to offer
The service and food were both outstanding. We did the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings and loved every course.
Great place to celebrate our friends 50th birthday! We were seated in the vault which was a nice touch to the celebration. Our waiter, David, was very knowledgeable! The food was amazing and we loved the tasting portion size available.
Fantastic restaurant. We went twice in 1 week!
Dante is so awesome! Tasting 9 courses was amazing
The only negative is the noise level. Very hard to talk with dinner companions.
I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I was in this experience. It started with being seated.
We were seated in the front of the restaurant right by the door/ bar area. I asked to be moved and was told very sharply “no we have a large party” and the wait would be 45 minutes even though we had reservations. The area we were seated in would be better as a “waiting area/ extension” of the bar. It was loud And freezing! Every time the front door opened a cold breeze came in. Most people in this area ate dinner with their coats on. It was so cold and loud I couldn’t wait to leave. I had originally planned on enjoying the “tasting menu” but as cold as I was I didn’t want to be there that long. The waiter was very inattentive and didn’t even come over to ask how our dinner was. I would’ve liked another beverage but didn’t have anyone to place the order with. Overall a very very disappointing experience.
We went there for our wedding anniversary and it was phenomenal. Highly recommend the pork belly polenta and duo of duck. The calamari was very tender as well.
Outstanding as usual. Service was the best. The waiter knew what he was talking about .
