This is a hard restaurant to review in that it is a nicer restaurant in a town that leans heavily towards more casual settings and fares. It's also not quite what its name implies. Dante's is part of a small complex of offices in a former foundry building. It appears to have been decorated in the 1980s or early 1990s... More

Best happy hour ever. 1/2 price appetizers, the deep fried shrimp popper are so good! Drinks are good, the mushrooms, the only thing that was bad is the internet, they don't have any for customers.

Waitress was very friendly and professional. For lunch had a Reuben sandwich that was very good. Atmosphere was very relaxing.

Excellent food and service and kind of "high end" for Great Falls. White tablecloths on all the tables and cloth napkins- food well prepared and tasty. would totally make a return trip!

I had read good and bad reviews on trip advisor, so I was curious what the story was. We entered the restaurant from a corridor that showed pictures of this old foundry that was converted into office space and this restaurant. The first impression was good. The old brick melded with modern decoration - a nice ambiance. The restaurant was... More

While the atmospher, service and food was very good, I am very disappointed to pay a premium price for shrimp and and CRAB linguini. And find just 3 small pieces of crab in it. I feel that is being dishonest and I will not return. The price justifies a reasonable amount of crab.

Beautiful old building built as a foundry in the early turn of the last century (1909) and a restaurant since the mid 1980's its one of our preferred choices when visiting Great Falls. This visit saw the interior much the same as our last visit in 2014. They still serve a whole roasted garlic bulb mashed at the table with... More

If you're looking for a nicer place to eat in Great Falls, this is it! The interior decor was very classy and tasteful. The service staff was not only dressed professionally, but were also very knowledgeable about the menu and quite attentive. The food is also wonderful! Your meal will be served with a house salad and bread, both of... More

In my mind, Dante's is the best of the best fine dining places in Great Falls. Their menu varies and yet they seem to know which are diners' favorites, and those are always available even if not on the menu. An example is the seafood enchilada -- they're usually willing to whip one of those up, advertised or not. The... More

We found Dante's somewhat by accident and were very happy that we did. The Bronzed Halibut was spectacular, although I'd pass on the veggies as the side option (overdone and mushy). The Chicken Milano was also very tasty. If I find myself in Great Falls again, I'll likely be back at Dante's.
