The food was excellent, service exquisite, and outside seating made our evening wonderful. Our waiter Dereck arranged for split plates for everything we ordered, made great cocktail and wine recommendations, and served us at a nice relaxed pace. The duck and grouper entrees are memorable. We have not been to Dante's since winter of 2020, except for takeout, and the opportunity to dine on their patio reminds us of how much we love the place. Hope to return soon!

Went for dinner for 4 on 9/17, after talking to our server we decided to go with their tasting menu, and it was an excellent choice. Our server was exceptionally attentive and took the time to explain every course and the wine that was paired to it. Overall the food was outstanding, the service exceptional and the venue was beautiful. A simply great evening, highly recommended A+++++

My wife loved every minute of our time at Dante. The appetizers were so big that they were almost a meal in themselves! The steak and the duck, and then later the desserts were just perfection itself. Our server, Alex, was outstanding! And I appreciate the host who asked me on my way out how things were. If you are looking for a truly remarkable experience with five star cuisine and service, go to Dante's in Cleveland! We'll be back!!

I was very impressed with our dinner at Dante. We had top-notch service from entry of the building until we left. We tried the local chicken and the pasta bolognese. Both of us were highly impressed with the flavors of both meals.

My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary at Dante's. I mentioned it was our anniversary when I made our reservations and the hostess wished us a happy anniversary when she greeted us and our server brought us 2 glasses of champagne when we were seated. That was unexpected but greatly appreciated. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding. We loved that they offered a tasting portion for some of their dishes. I will say that even the tasting portion is pretty generous. I ordered tasting portions of all 3 pastas they offered and ended up with leftovers. For dessert, we ordered the 3 course dessert tasting. The desserts are picked by the pastry chef so we weren't sure what we were going to receive, however they were fabulous. We were seated in the main dining area which is a bit cozy. They did have plexiglass barriers between tables which we appreciated not only for health reasons but it also offered a little more privacy. At times, it did get a bit noisy but not to the point of becoming a problem. I have already recommended this restaurant to family members and would definitely return.

We came to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The atmosphere is upbeat and sophisticated. We both chose the tasting menu - he had the wine pairings with his. It was phenomenal. The tastings were generous and perfectly balanced. Our server Chris was great - he chose perfect wine pairings. The timing of the courses was spot on. In short we were blown away. Make reservations and go!!

This was my husband's and my 3rd time visiting Dante's. We will be planning to check out the sushi restaurant in the near future.

The service was outstanding and they accommodated our needs. I don't typically drink alcohol but they got me a moxtail that was simply amazing.

We celebrated our 22nd anniversary with outstanding food and excellent service. We will definitely encourage others to check it out too.
