Came on Sunday for brunch. $12 Bloody Marys w picked veggies came with no veggies. Food took forever to come out and 1 of 6 arrived after I finished mine. Will admit everything tasted delicious and the late dish was comped, which I appreciated. Overall service was a little loose. Would I return? Not sure.

We made reservations for Sunday brunch at 2. Server was nice but seemed stressed/stretched. The food took almost an hour from our order till when we got food. The manager never stopped to check in or update us. It looked like our waiter would periodically check on our food but didn’t update us. Then all of a sudden food starts coming from the kitchen and the whole restaurant got served in about 10-15 minutes. It was as if the rest of the kitchen staffer arrived and started cooking. No complaints about the food. Sometimes delays happen but the diner should be kept updated. He apologized profusely for the wait when the food arrived but I prefer being updated especially when it’s known that there is some issue.

It is always an all around good experience at Dante's Next Door. It makes it hard to go other places for brunch. And the Bloody Mary's ..YUM

Very slow Server did not come to our table for almost 15 minutes. Once ordered it was also very slow. Food was great. Hopefully when staffing gets back to normal things will return to their former great experience.

We had a lovely time celebrating Father's Day at Dante Next Door. It was our first time there--I had always wanted to go, and it didn't disappoint. My son had the Bananas Foster French Toast and said it was the best he ever had. My husband loved the Crab Cakes Benedict with two large crab cakes (generous crab and less breading). I had the Shrimp and Grits which I thought were on par with any I ever had in New Orleans! Great atmosphere, responsive server, and fantastic cocktails too. We are foodies and loved this place. We will definitely be back.

Took my mother to brunch for her birthday. The staff, food, and environment was phenomenal!!!!!!!! I could not have asked for a better experience. My mom cried and left the restaurant feeling loved and appreciated. She even adopted our server as her new “son”. 😃

Professional with the Tremont neighborhood welcoming feel. Dante was working the pizza oven. Service balanced, attentive but not overbearing. Food was creative and at the same time not over the top.

Really enjoyed brunch at Dante's. It is in a cool revitalized city neighborhood with quaint shops nearby. The server was excellent although it did a while for drinks and dessert to come. Perhaps, like many restaurants, they are short of help right now.

Service started very slow. But once the server arrived after about 10-15 minutes, the server was pleasant and knowledgeable. Drinks were slow to come out but everything else was great and the food even better. Large and flavorful portions and something on the menu for everyone. I highly recommend.

I almost don't want to give Dante Next Door a great review, because it is my secret weapon when trying to impress family/friends for brunch, and it isn't overly hard to get in. That said, Dante is such a great guy and the food/service/music selection is so stellar that others need to know about it. The breakfast pizza, eggs benedict and the coffee alone are worth the price of admission. I am giving it five stars only because that is the limit to the recommendation scale.

Took my family for an early Mothers Day brunch. Everything was delicious. Great eggs benedict and the bullseye is so tasty and different from normal brunch dishes. The kids had the banana fosters french toast. Impeccable.

We arrived on time for our Easter Brunch reservation. The restaurant was not crowded and didn't seem busy. When we arrived, our table had not been set. We were seated and waited several minutes to be greeted by our waitress. It took what seemed like about 20 minutes for the waitress to get situated to take and bring our initial drink order while we looked over the menu for our meal selections. Our waitress was very nice and had a pleasant disposition.

I ordered the bananas foster French toast ... she ordered steak and eggs. After quite some time, my meal was brought to the table but not hers. About 5 - 7 minutes later, her meal was brought out. The food and plating was impressive! Our adult beverages tasted average but were very pricey.

We have been coming here for brunch on Sunday’s and our recent last two visits were very disappointing. We were waiting over 45 minutes for our food and it wasn’t up to the usual standards when we finally received it. I was also served the incorrect order and nothing was done to correct the situation.
