My only complaint is the portions are small for the price you pay. The quality is better than any other hands down.

I am always skeptical of restaurants located in hotels but dante proved that theory wrong. I spent MLK weekend in Boston and ended up eating dinner EVERY night at this restaurant which is located in the Royal Sonesta Hotel. The food was interesting in concept and perfect in execution; an exquisite combination of traditional Italian with innovation. And you can try nice sized Tastes for $5. The sommelier is brilliant; not a mediocre wine in the lot. The staff are both friendly and professional. I recommend this restaurant without reservation (although you will probably need one!).

Dante's menu continues to evolve and with this continues to increasingly impress. Great variety of selections, and terrific wine list as well. Service is outstanding, and the atmosphere--particularly on a clear night with great views of the city--is excellent. Not to be discounted is the great bar with excellent bartenders. All in all, high marks all around--definitely worth the trip.

The flavors were adequate however the portions were miniscule. We all left the restaurant hungry. The atmosphere was nice but not anything special. The service was exceptational. We had a party of 15 and everybody was disappointed. For an average of $100.00 plus per person no one should leave hungry. I normally dine out twice a week however Dante's will not be on my menu.

My boyfriend and I ate here last night and couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was terrific, a perfect balance of effusive and efficient. The fig and prosciutto amuse was nice, though the bread was a bitt soggy. We began with the oysters, dressed with crispy rice, a mignonette and a pomegranate gelee. The mini-clambake was indeed delightful as the other reviewer mentioned, grounded with a top-notch broth, really more of a nage, but I digress. The gnocchi were also great, paired with speck, top-notch peaches, and pistachios--beautiful and tasty. The guinea hen was also a nice blend of simple and sophisticated; perfectly cooked hen with a great veggie blend underneath. But the escargots were easily the highlight--they could just serve the truffled potato spuma alone and make a fortune. The cocktails were bright and perfectly mixed, right down to the ice crystals in the martini. We had a medium-priced bottle of wine and split a dessert and all for around $200--a great value in a hip and sexy environment. Go now!

Dante's food is ethereal. There were flavors I have never experienced before e.g. the Ginger soda at dinner's end...the lobster clam-bake...including a mini-corn-dog. There's a youthful engery about the place that I really like, even though my wife and I are a bit older than the staff. The waiters were as excited about the food as we were. My only disappointment was that it was pouring rain and we had wanted to try the patio (not their fault!). But we will return and are definitely looking forward to more magic from his kitchen. P.S I'm thinking it's also a great place to entertain out-of-town guests who would love the views of Boston (on a clear night) and appreciate the wonderful menu.
