It was just too hot to dine outside (and the live music was way too loud) so 3 of us sat inside in one of the rooms where we had lots of space. We were surprised at how extensive the menu was under the current conditions and everything was delicious. Between us we had the fried calamari, gazpacho special, salad and Dover sole entrees.
We love, love, love Dantes. Amazing gourmet meals with a friendly staff and charming setting. Great place to go for an excellent meal in the COVID world. Easy to social distance and lots of private rooms in their historic Victorian home.
Dante's is our go to place for great Italian food. The porch and patio are great places to dine when the weather is good. The food is very good, sometimes exceptional. The service is ways efficient and knowledgeable.
One of the best ossu bucco dishes anywhere. The crab appetizer is just yummy.
We will be back. Takeout during lockdown was good but dinner on their porch is so much better.
We celebrated at Dante's and the experience was outstanding. The garden area is lovely, the staff is attentive and the food and drink was wonderful. We're going again soon, it made this weird social distancing summer seem normal.
Our fave special occasion restaurant. Even in the pandemic, it was wonderful as ever!
Good, atmosphere and service all unequalled.
Wonderful as always. Only thing is that three of our party ordered the same entre and all three were the wrong dish! Waiter admitted his misunderstanding and we certainly were not going to send it back and waste it. It was tasty. Just disappointing as it was not what we were anticipating.
We have eaten here a lot over the years and Dante's never disappoints. The food is ALWAYS so good, the service is stellar. They always go beyond and above. Great food, great wine, great chef and great staff. I also had a big birthday party here where they did a cocktail hour on the patio and then a sit down dinner in a private room. It was AMAZING!!! The outside patio is also very nice with a fountain and live music at times. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Because of hot & humid weather , we opted to eat inside. This was our first time at Dante's. It was a great choice for a special anniversary dinner. My loin chops in balsamic reduction were sublime and my husband loved his crab-stuffed rockfish. We shared an appetizer of bacon-wrapped scallops that I'd gladly make my meal entree next time. Delish! Shared the bibb lettuce salad with hearts of palm and shared two desserts, the tartufo and a ricotta and pistachio mousse pie piece. Both were wonderful. Food, service and ambiance were all first class. Looking forward to return trips and bringing friends there. One of these times we'll try the lovely patio dining.
Anniversary Dinner, in the pandemic. Good wine, good food, friendly service, we had a good time.
Dante was amazing! I took my wife (who was born and raised in Italy) out for our anniversary dinner and they provided a totally private room for us. The service was exceptional and the food divine. They have a lot of fish options including swordfish, as well as authentic Italian pastas and salads. The gnocchi was delicious, and my wife loved the veal. We will be returning soon.
Our experience at Dante was amazing. The food was delicious, ambience was perfect, and service was perfect.
Beautiful outdoor space and wonderful service and food!
Beautiful outdoor garden to eat in with the Cover-19 restrictions. Had a great experience and delicious food. Had many items on the menu that wanted to try and after such a nice time will gladly go back to eat there again.
My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Dante Ristorante and the food, service and ambiance were all superb. We can't recommend Dante's enough to family and friends. Come see what you are missing!
Dante is one of our favorite restaurants. Love to dine on the patio. Food is always delicious.
Outstanding Italian cuisine. Great staff and always a great atmosphere to enjoy dinner.
Lasagna was delicious. Superb service.
This is an excellent italian restaurant, with very dedicated chef service and waiter service. Great food and great patio.
Spectacular in every respect. Outstanding service, superb cuisine and wonderful atmosphere.
Our first dinner out since the pandemic was declared March was at Dante's, for our wedding anniversary. It was great to see the long-time professional staff back! We sat on the porch. They acknowledged our special occasion with chocolate cake. Everything was excellent!
The food was fabulous and the outdoor seating was magical !!
Felt like we were in a garden in Tuscany !!
Best value and a lovely night !!
We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary with a night at Dante’s and it was wonderful from start to finish.
Comprehensive Wine List (we had an Italian Pinot Noir) that had many excellent choices. The menu was extensive and offered authentic dishes that once again left us with difficult decisions on what to order. The list of Appetizer’s was appealing and did not disappoint. The Caesar and Spinach salads were great as well. The main courses of Ravioli and Veal Scallopini were outstanding and were served in hearty portions. Desert was a chocolate mousse cake with ‘Happy Anniversary’ adorning the plate...
While I’m sore the staff was as happy to see us as we were to just ‘be out’ eating anywhere, Dante’s was a completely relaxed and attentive example of 1st rate customer service. We thoroughly enjoyed a perfect evening on the patio with good wine and a great meal. Hard to suggest where improvements could be made...we’ll definitely be back.
Nice job from the moment we walked in until we departed.
An outstanding restaurant in the suburbs! Who knew. No need to travel to the city to find a top notch place to dine. Food was great. Menu has a wide selection of choices. Everything was delicious.
We were able to talk in a conversational tone easily.
All in all a very nice evening.
There were 6 of us for dinner Saturday night and they put us in a private room upstairs but the table was way too big and they had us all at one end of the table. I found it odd and did not like it. The table was really meant for a party of 12. I asked if we could change to another room with a table for 6 but they were unable to accommodate us. They didn’t make much effort to even try. The staff was friendly but I was put off by the seating and at times felt we were forgotten and had to wave someone down to come and check on us.
Ordered the lamb chops and the dover sole. The lamb chops were mostly gristle with very little meat. The dover sole was not tender and was rather chewy, and certainly was not flakey - almost needed a knife to cut it cleanly. But perhaps the worst part of the meal was the service. It began when we sat for a while with no menus. Then, when we finally got menus, they were simply dropped off - we had to read through the menus on our own to find out the specials for the day. When the waiter returned, we asked how the dover sole is and how fresh it is, and he shrugged and said "we try to have it be fresh" -- so what does that mean we wondered? Bread was delivered to the table without any butter or (EVVO) olive oil, we were left to try and figure out for ourselves that the little black bottle (about 4 inches tall) that was on the table already was perhaps the olive oil intended to be used with the bread -- so we unscrewed the mysterious bottle and took a taste, discovering it was in fact olive oil. Since we did not particularly enjoy the dover sole we decided to take it home -- asking the waiter to pack it up for us which he did. He then returned with the package in a bag, placing it as an entree in front of my girlfriend, disregarding the fact that we wanted to order dessert. She then asked him if he could place the bagged to-go-box on the empty table next door, and he said, yes, YOU can put it on the chair of the table next door, as he walked way unhelpful. Overall a terrible experience.
Another great meal at Dante Ristorante. We had proscuito with burrata, tomatoes & pepers, fish soup (clams, mussels, shrimp, rock fish & calamari), veal & ended with sorbet. Our server was Rene who can't be beat. We looked forward to coming back.
My partner and I celebrated our anniversary at Dante’s this evening, and we were very impressed! When we first entered the restaurant there were two very nice gentlemen who greeted us and offered to take our coats. We were immediately shown to our table, and we were well-looked-after for the rest of the evening. Our waiter was very kind and attentive, and he even went above-and-beyond by writing “Happy Anniversary” on our dessert plate at the end of our dinner. Our meals were absolutely delicious. A variety of breads were brought to the table, and they were all fresh and delicious! We both started with a Caesar salad, and we were offered fresh ground pepper to go with it. I had the homemade agnolotti and requested a different sauce than what is on the menu. Our waiter was able to make that change without a problem, and it was an absolutely delicious dinner. My partner got the ribeye for dinner and he loved it! It was “very tender and cooked well.” Even though our anniversary was on a Monday night, we were certainly not the only people in the dining room. However, the atmosphere was relaxed and perfect for quiet, friendly conversations. Overall a fantastic experience! We will be back soon!
Always good and always very friendly staff.....
Love this place!!!
Highly recommended for food service and overall experience.
We have been to Dante many times and brought many family members and friends. It is always consistent, with service and food. Someone always orders the Fishermans stew. Its always gets raves. I personally like the veal chop and panna cotta. It's a lovely restaurant with a warm ambiance. I like to sit on the first floor; just my preference. Everyone is always welcoming.
Proposed marriage to my now-fiancee there. Chose Dante's because it may very well be THE most Romantic restaurant in all of the DC area. And oh, the pasta and tiramisu were heavenly.
Good food. But never refilled water.
Excellent in every way! Highly recommended.
We were a group of 16 diners, the service was impeccable and food delicious. Many were vegetarians in our group. Everyone enjoyed the dining experience @ Dante.
the BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
