Birthday brunch. Food was good, service good. A little pricey. Brunch for 3 with tip - $100.00. Did provide a birthday treat with candle.

The restaurant was packed for lunch, so we ended up sitting at the pizza bar and loved it! The waiter, the pizza guy, and the food were all tremendous, we can’t wait to go back!

Pleasantly surprised with our experience. The menu is not very big, which concerned some people in our party. We ate more family style by just getting several dishes and sampling. Almost everything was excellent. There was one crab cake dish that a few people didn’t care for. Parking was easy, as they have their own lot right next-door to the restaurant. Service staff was super friendly and the food was priced very fairly given the high quality.

Went based on the recommendation of a coworker. I ordered the Beef Short Rib sandwich, and it was very well-made. The menu seems solid and about the right price for what is being offered.

Service and food was outstanding. The only bad thing is that when opening the front door on this cold day the restaurant dove a few degrees. Other than that we will be back many times!

One of the best brunch locations I've ever experienced! Enjoyed the chef's special that included a poached egg, focatta, chick peas, spinach in a red sauce. The Rose All Day was a delicious breakfast beverage. Brunch was topped off with the Nutella pie. Everything was done perfectly, the service was outstanding (from John) and the food was high quality.

Always great food. The service was outstanding, our server was very engaging.
No complaints, other than the noise level- it’s difficult to hold a conversation- it seems everyone has to speak loudly and the music was loud too.

Great food. I always get the bianco pizza with prescuitto because it’s always delicious. The only downside is how long you wait for your food. Every time (which has been frequently as we live down the street), it takes forever to get our food. Service is good otherwise. Great for brunch!

Dante next door is nothing like the Dante we know and love. Our first time; service was fair at best. She was honestly pretty cold when we asked for recommendations. Bloody Mary’s were delicious. Side of home fries was extremely salty. Breakfast pizza was good but nothing special, same with eggs Benedict. We were disappointed,

My husband took me to Dante’s Next Door for Sunday Brunch for my birthday. the French press coffee, grapefruit broule, smoked salmon Benedict on a croissant with avocado and a small veggie salad with citrus dressing, the crab cake benedict and fingerling potatoes fried in duck fat and blueberry crumb cake were the bomb! As we were sitting we watched the amazing pizzas going by. I will definitely go back to try one.

The food was poorly seasoned and to be honest just terrible! Nothing had flavor. The pizza and burger were downright terrible!! My brothers said it was the worst burger they've ever had. Overpriced. Overrated. Disappointing. I will never be back and would tell others not to bother.

The food was exceptional. My wife ordered the shrimp and grits, her go to dish and said b.c all other dishes will now be judged by this standard.
I had the pasta carbonara frittata. An unusual dish, but delicious.
The maple bacon was great, but skip the duck fat potatoes.
