In otherwise perfect evening - service, atmosphere, and overall meal - the pork shank was really over-salted. Easy fix, but still.

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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!
