DANTE Ratings and Reviews
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.
Exceptional service: knowledgeable about food and wine menus, attentive, responsive.
I was made to feel welcomed and treated as a special guest.
Food is consistently good, flavorful and expertly prepared. Good to see the chef/owner actually in the kitchen tending to details.
Menu is varied and offers many interesting food options along with portion options.
Still a great Cleveland restaurant.
We loved everything we ordered ——the Chinese cabbage soup and miso soups were great ; the brussel sprouts ; the mussels ; and our main courses of salmon and Branzino were fabulous . The environment is great . My only criticism was the delay in main course preparation. But we had a wonderful time .
DANTE came as a recommendation from a coworker as I was in the Cleveland area for a wedding. It was perfect for dinner, drinks & desert! The staff was amazing and very attentive. We got a tour of the restaurant from the Hostess, and ended up spending the rest of the evening at the the Live Music Bar CODA. Great experience all around!
I wanted to treat my brother (visiting from out of town) to a special place for his birthday. Dante was my choice, and it did not disappoint. I had had a very good experience there several years ago and ever since had been looking for a reason to return. All of the courses we had--the soup, risotto, entree, and dessert--were excellent. My only reason for rating the food "very good" is that the entree should have been somewhat warmer when delivered to the table; at least it should not have cooled off as quickly as it did. The service was satisfactory, but I found it annoying that, on checking back on us, the wait person said, "How are the entrees? Fantastic, right?" That was completely out of place at a restaurant of this calibre--and, I might add, at these prices. Just the same, I hope to have a reason to go back at least a third time.
My boyfriend and I visited DANTE for the first time to celebrate two special occasions and we were blown away. The food is varied, complex, and just plain delicious. We started with the mussels appetizer with crab meat and it was so good we cleaned the bowl. The duo of duck entree was a hit with my boyfriend and my salmon with the butternut squash risotto was incredible. The salmon was cooked beautifully--a slight crust on the outside but moist on the inside. The portion size was also generous enough for leftovers, which tasted just as amazing the next day as it did the night before. We'll definitely be back in the future to try the tasting menus, since there are a number of dishes we still want to try. Go and you won't be disappointed.
Second time here. First was a business dinner this time with my wife before we went to a show at Playhouse Square and to celebrate my promotion at work. Everything from food to service to atmosphere was awesome. My wife did a 5 course tasting with wine pairing which she loved. I highly recommend the steak and sausage bolognese. Awesome neighborhood (Tremont) too. Definitely will be back!
We were in Cleveland for the first time and picked Dante for my birthday dinner, based on the reviews I found. We thought it was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and Jackie was an awesome server. She was helpful and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Food was wonderful and beautifully presented. Would highly recommend Dante for a memorable dining experience.
My wife and I ate dinner here before heading to the playhouse district for a show. The service was prompt, attentive and friendly. We went with the 5 course tasting menu paired with wines. To say we were pleased would be an understatement. Each course was perfectly prepared and presented. The wines paired with each course were in my opinion expertly selected and complemented each respective course amazingly well. Our server explained and presented each course and wine selection in a way that certainly enhanced the overall experience. If you are looking for great food and wine I would highly recommend you give Dante’s a visit. You will not be disappointed.
Did the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, was absolutely worth it. None of the courses were on the regular menu. My wife is not big on meat so we requested a pescatarian tasting. Creativity, variety, wine pairings (more than enough), all top notch. Started with a crab and shrimp ceviche, then squid ink pasta topped with lobster, followed by trout, then either seasonal salmon (wife) or pork (me) and finished with coconut-cashew cake dessert and chocolate cake ganache. Our waitress was also fabulous, attentive, friendly, etc.
As usual, food was extremely good, we did the 7 course chef tasting, which was well balanced and diverse. Plating was exceptional as well. The wife and I had a hard time existing on a favorite because every course was fantastic. I always think pasta when I think of Dante, but there is much more. I believe we had 3 seafood dishes, which had great flavor and are light enough to not fill you up along the way. Dessert was the largest most filling course, which worked fine, since it was the end. Left full and satisfied, will be taking some friends there soon.
Could be my new favorite restaurant! Testing menu with wine was outstanding and server so very knowledgeable about the pairings. Menu items available in various sizes allowed our party to try so much of the delicious menu, and many things creatively prepared that were not on the menu. I highly recommend!
The poor service took away from the food. This was my first time at this location - had been once before when was in Valley View. I hope this was an anomaly, as the food was good. Service was insufferable. Empty drinks. No pre-bussing. Had to flag waiter down for menu, for silverware, for drinks, etc... first course was served cold, and when I mentioned to waiter his response was, "its not cold". Um? Yes, it is. With all the fabulous restaurants in Cle, it may be a while before I venture back to Dante.
My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Dante. We were so surprised and excited when we were seated in the vault. A few minutes after we sat down, our waiter came to our table with two glasses of champagne and wished us a happy anniversary! That was so great and we were so surprised again. Everything after that was just wonderful. The food and the service was phenomenal. We will be back and definitely recommend this to everyone! Thank you Dante!
Terrific all around, especially with respect to working with great understanding about food intolerance of one member of our party. Great food and service. Best scallops ever. We wish we had requested the back room, though, as the noise level n the front was pretty high and made conversation a bit challenging.
Such an amazing experience. If you don't do the chef's tasting menu, you're missing out. Each course is carefully selected and distinctive. Every bite was better than the last. Our server was so thoughtful and attentive; especially to a food sensitivity. They even started our meal off with prosecco to celebrate our anniversary. I'd go back every night if I could. Thank you for such a delightful evening.
