Excellent food, waitress was very friendly and accommodating. They were somewhat slow with service that evening as our meal was over 2 hours and the waitress apologized and they comped our deserts due to the excessive wait. We had tickets to the show at coda next door for 9pm and our reservations were at 8, but we didn’t get done with our meal until 10:15. Overall the food was excellent and presentation and service were great, just be mindful of the time if you are planning on attending a show or have plans with a tight timeline. Would definitely recommend though and will try again!
Food was good. Didn’t like how they served the bread with hummus.
5 course tasting with wines. Excellent;-).
This was the second time I dined at Dante, and the food and service were outstanding both times. I brought a friend with me as we were to discuss a business venture, celebrate her birthday, and help lift her spirit as she had recently lost her sister. She loved everything about your establishment and it helped brighten her day. Thank You so vey much for making it an enjoyable evening for both of us.
We decided to be adventurous and each tried the 5-course tasting menu. The food and service were absolutely fantastic.
dante never disappoints! everything was delicious and cooked to perfection! the mussels were huge and the hong kong sauce was a delightful twist. we all shared tastings of each pasta which is one of my favorite things about this restaurant (wishing i had leftover bolognese for breakfast!) the verlasso salmon and pork were also divine, great flavors and perfectly prepared.
We ordered the 7 course tasting menu for our anniversary. We also had the foie gras as an appetizer while waiting for our table, the best overall dish we had. The atmosphere is always fun and cool. The food however left us wanting, it didn't live up to the price. The dishes are somewhat outdated with basic ingredients and preparations. The scallop dish was cold, the duck was sloppy. The lobster pasta was delicious and the highlight of the tasting menu. However, we were expecting a pasta dish to not be the highlight.
The service was excellent which made our night that much better. Very attentive and knowledgeable.
I think Dante needs to update their cooking techniques to make it a great dining destination. Until then we will try other restaurants.
We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was outstanding. I am sure we will be back.
Beautiful space and some delicious food. But the service was terrible. It took 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive. And it is so noisy & terribly hard to hear.
Dante restaurant was amazing . Seafood is my favorite
We have not been to Dante's for several years. It is still the best in fine dinning. We had the rabbit that was fantastic. You don't see on many menus. The same wine Stewart was available to assist on an outstanding wine selection. I hope it's not as long before we get back again.
Very thoughtfully well-prepared selections. You can't go wrong with any dish. They're all delicious.
My sister’s and I had a lovely dinner. Our waiter was very good, informative and served our table well. He was not over bearing. After the dinner I asked if the location was a bank previously and he offered to take us on a tour. We felt very good about that. It was fun to see the kitchen”in action” and it was SO very nice of Dante to come out and greet us. Thebwholenexperience was wonderful and made for a special night. I also enjoyed seeing the other places and will probably return to visit the sushi bar, wine tasting and stop in for your happy hour. Thank you for such a nice evening. P.S. The food was 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 best place around. Just can't go wrong here
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.
Excellent- meet all expectations. Food, service and ambiance. Highly recommend.
2nd time to Dante. First time there had the tasting menu. This time we ate from the menu.
Started with the carpaccio which was good, but I've had better. I would not order it again.
Also tried had an apple squash soup which was excellent. For entrees we had pappardelle Bolognese which was awesome, scallops which were perfectly cooked and branzino which was excellent. Had the cheese plate for dessert which was just okay and would not order again.
Overall excellent food, expensive but will go again.
Loved the food, the atmosphere and service was great! Thank you!
One of the best steaks I've had anywhere!
Coming Soon - DANTE STEAK???
Need 2 hours for appetizers, main, dessert as service is slow
We very much enjoyed our experience. The food was delicious as always and our service was Outstanding- Jeff our server was awesome, he did such a great job describing each course. He made our experience so much more enjoyable. Thank you very much.
