Great appetizer, my date loved her food, my steak was absolutely amazing, MINUS I ordered it medium rare and it was cooked on all levels of the temp scale, the center was way over done. Didn't ruin my experience was something to pay attention to.

Went out for Valentine's Day and ordered center cut filet and new York strip steak @ $36.00 each. Ordered them medium well and both came out very bloody. The steak was cooked longer and came out alot better and was much more satisfying.

Another excellent meal. We took friends that have never been to DBA and they loved it. Looking forward to going back. The food is great and the service perfect. Summer is a great time to visit due to the fun outdoor seating.

We went here for a date. The service was impeccable and the host was very professional and courteous. The food was absolutely outstanding.

Service was very poor. For a party of three, it took 40 minutes for our drink order to come out and around an hour and 30 minutes for our food to come out. In total, our dining stay was over 2 hours for three people with one drink and dinner. We have been to Dante’s other restaurants and the service and food have typically been fantastic. Overall, very poor dining experience at this location.

We ordered the Salmon and the scallops both were too sweet! The risotto didn’t have any flavor. We paid $30 for each meal.

We liked the waitress. I can’t remember her name. I know she was new.

Probably will not return

My husband and I had dined here before so thought we would go for New Years. We looked on the website and didn’t see anything saying there would be a special menu. When we got there it was a very limited menu and $110.00 per couple. The portion sizes were small which for this type of restaurant seems to be the norm but it wasn’t worth $55.00. We would go back but not for New Years.

Very nice leisurely dinner with friends , server was great very attentive. Food was great , good drink selection also . A lot of private little nooks . Was a large gas fire just outside the window by our table !

The night was perfect. Really enjoyed the drinks, meal and dessert. The four of us shared everything and raved about each meal. We will be definitely bringing more friends here.

Wonderful as always! DBA continues to be my favorite restaurant in Akron. We brought another couple from out of town and they loved it as well. Our server was Ally (we have had her before) and she was excellent!! From the great service to the delicious food, you know that DBA is doing something right. Fresh bread and hummus are complimentary and very good. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and our glasses were never empty. Highly recommend and a big thank you to Ally for her awesome service!!

The food and service were fine, though the food needed a bit of seasoning. However, the table we sat at was very small and near the door so that everytime the door opened for a guest or the valet, freezing air (literally) washed over us and our food. Also, the table next to us was seperated only by a few inches and a thin white curtain. We were practically dining together, which was not ideal for a date.
