Went here with my Husband for dinner, we live nearby so it was a last minute idea. Called an hour out and was able to get a reservation, showed up they had our table ready (everything good so far). Out table was wedged in a hallway upstairs, kinda of cute with a good view of the downstairs, very tight and cramped with servers carrying hot pots of oil by constantly. Good wine selection and pretty good prices on some of the wine. Here is my problem, kinda dirty, paper napkins, no tablecloth whatsoever and mediocre food at best. I don't usually complain about such things but for the price of the food you would expect more. The Melting Pot chain I feel has better food and atmosphere. But for the cost we could have gone someplace much nicer. Was a little fun, but not really.

don't expect to be fed much here, it is strictly a great hang out place for people who enjoy a lively atmosphere and a good jazz band. the food is expensive and sometimes service isn't fast. however, the ambiance more than makes up for it. order a platter, sit back, and enjoy. this is a good after dinner date place, if you can still get seats by then

We got the beef fondue with extra veggies. Delicious! Super high quality beef! Dante himself stopped by our table and chatted for a while. Fun atmosphere, friendly service, great jazz band! Quite pricey, but definitely worth it. Plan to spend a couple hours enjoying yourself and connecting over your meal. Shout out to Dante: THERE IS NO CIGAR SMOKE & WE DIDN'T GET ARRESTED, HAH!

I love Dante's! The food is great and the atmosphere is great! It is especially nice that owner is always there and has greeted us at our table each time we eat there. I recommend Dante's for your special night out!

Totally awesome jazz and unique ship-motif decor. The food iis always good. Nd I been coming here since 'back in da day'. Don't forget to checkout the women's bathroom. We had the Chinese dumplings, cheese fondue and the Mandarin Fondue for our main-course. The main course was tasty and offered a great assortment of sauces and dip-able delights such as chicken, pork, shrimp, mushrooms.

Dante's represents a unique menu - fondue, good wine, a nautical decor, fine jazz, and can set the stage for the right kind of intimacy for dining out with a special someone. The fondue is getting pricey, but his place is still one of a kind. I've been a patron od Dante Stephenson and his restaurant since they were in the old Underground Atlanta and have always had a special evening there.

Dantes is an atlata classic, right across from lenox mall. I did not like paying extra to sit on the boat, but the food was good. I was not pleased when the bill arrived, very expensive for what you get. The whole restaurant smells like grease.

My wife and I really like going to Dante's. Atmosphere is wonderful, romantic. We like the darkness and the ship. I will agree that at times I feel like Dante is a bit of a gruff old man, but what you see is what you get with him.
