Despite the loss of power Dante’s food was great and so was Customer service. The only issue there was is the food for all parties did not artist the same time. But that could definitely be overlooked especially given the power outage situation.

We had the shrimp and grits/ Dante inferno pizza/ potatoes. Everything was DELICIOUS 👍🏼👍🏼. The chorizo used was amazing! Marcus our server was very attentive. Only thing that could have been better was the wood fired crust a little crisper, but nonetheless the pizza was flavorful and we would order again.

Dante Next Door had a variety of different menu options including creative specials. The restaurant felt very safe during COVID with plexiglass-like panels set up between tables. The service was great and the food delicious.

We had a lovely brunch. Service and food were outstanding. We have always enjoyed Dante’s offerings from Dante’s in Tremont, to DC Pasta, to Ginko. This was our second time to Dante Next Door. We specifically came back to introduce our son to the Dante’s Inferno pizza. Though we all ordered breakfast food we had to order the pizza because it is that good! I also recommend if you are not drinking (though the Bellini the first time I was there was off the hook) to try the infused iced tea. We had the white peach and our son had the cappuccino and all were great.

We went to Sunday brunch after a book signing at a local bookstore. We had reservations and were seated almost immediately. Initial service was a bit slow-it took awhile to get water and menus and we had a bit of a wait until someone took our order. The coffee we ordered didn't come until the meal did, although it was because they were brewing a fresh pot. We both ordered omelets, which were delicious and arrived piping hot. DND has a good vibe and energy and the decor is artsy and interesting. We would definitely come back.

Dante's Next Door is the best brunch in town - hand down. If you have not gone, you have to go. Everything is excellent from the Pasta Carbonara Frittata to the Breakfast Pizzas to the Bananas Foster waffles. Great Brunch Cocktails. Great service. Just a great experience all the way around. Dante knows how to do everything well - including Brunch!

We had a fantastic experience for brunch at Dante Next Door! It was our first time visiting this establishment, and it did not disappoint. We had one brunch dish off the regular menu, and one special, and both were absolutely delicious. Our only disappointment (if we are really trying hard to find one), was that is was a bit noisy for a normal conversation at our table. But we really enjoyed ourselves immensely, and the service and manager both were top-notch!

First time in for brunch on a Saturday. Warm, eclectic atmosphere. However, it was really loud and hard to hear for conversation at our own table. The food was excellent and Mimosa and Bloody Mary’s were great, but slow to come. The serving staff generally seemed overwhelmed even though many open tables. Our server was nice but not super on top of things and a little flustered. Will likely give it another shot.

Dante's Next Door Brunch is the perfect way to bring in a lazy Sunday. Love the brunch menu and the fabulous Bloody Marys make the thought of Monday tolerable. I love the lox breakfast pizza-the perfect combination.

This is a great place to have brunch with one other person or a small group - any more people and it would be hard to hear. But the food was excellent, and the portion size generous (enough for leftovers)!

Was told a good brunch place but menu didn’t prove so. Went safe with pancakes that were not very good. Sausage tasted strange. Wouldn’t recommend.

Seated right away. Server was very nice. Food delayed due to something being made incorrectly. And then the for the table order was not good. So much so the server noticed it and brought it up. We weren’t going to even say anything. Will not come back.
