Fantastic food in a fantastic location. Love Tremont and easy street parking. But if you want to valet, no problem! For 6.00 you can, a far better deal than downtown CLE dining. We had a group of 12 and the service and each meal was stellar. I had the beef cheeks and hubby had venison. Both the best I have... More

Made reservations for an anniversary dinner at 7:30 on a Saturday night. Seated by 8:00. There is nowhere quiet or intimate/good for conversation. The hostess was dressed like a street beggar and totally unapproachable--no idea how she qualified for the job. The overwhelming theme of this venue is chaos. We had no less than five different servers. The wait staff... More

We dined at Dante for our 28th wedding anniversary. While we've lived in Cleveland for several years, we've never eaten at Dante (shame on us). Our waitress, Stephanie, was wonderful and attentive to our needs. She has a promising career in the restaurant business. I ordered the 5 course tasting menu with wines, while my wife ordered a salad and... More

We had a celebratory Saturday dinner here a few weeks back, and were simply blown away. This was one of the best restaurant meals I've ever had. Try the 5 or 7 course tasting with wine courses -- it's not inexpensive, but really amazing. Service was perfect, appropriate, and food and drink are of the very highest quality. Highest recommendation!

We went on a Friday evening with 2 friends. They had been before and raved about everything. The two men both ordered the 9-level tasting menu (9, maybe 7?). The two women ordered from the simple menu. All was delicious. We were amazed at the size of the tasting menu items. All the food was exceptionally good. It did take... More

This was our first time here and after reading the reviews, we opted for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. I am NOT an adventurous person when it comes to food, so this was really outside my comfort zone. All I can say is that I am so glad I did. From the appetizer (salmon tartar) to the... More

The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is excellent. Foods are well prepared. Our favorite is the scallops.

We enjoyed our latest dinner at this Tremont restaurant. Their food is consistently very good. We were seated in the back room which is a bit more quiet than the main part of the restaurant. I started with the black rice app while my companion chose the cavatelli. Both were very good. My main course was the pork chop while... More

We were newbies to Dante and opted for the 5 course tasting menu to experience a little bit of a lot. Some have posted rave reviews of Dante and on the evening they attended it may have been "perfect". Such was not the case for us. Most courses were very good indeed, but the fish course of salmon with puttanesca... More

Once in a blue moon you have a dinner where everything is perfect. We had such an experience last Friday night with our family. Six of us had the tasting menu and the chef out did himself. Every dish was memorable, especially the variety of desserts we had at the end. All of the wine pairings were perfect. And the... More
