    Fabulous food. great service. Very creative menu items for brunch. If you are looking for a quiet place for brunch, this is not it. It is a little loud.

    I got a text message from Dante’s the minute of my reservation confirming that my table was ready. I was greeted immediately and quickly escorted to a table outside, as I requested. It was the perfect day and ambiance. I invited my friend and she loved the food: she ordered the crab cakes and grapefruit brûlée. I sure we’ll both happily come back again.

    Went for brunch and I hope it was an off day but order was wrong TWICE! No ham on a pizza, please sub salmon. Simple ask but NO not simple for the pizza maker that day…lol. Ham on pizza twice- we were over it. Condensation dripped on to food from pitcher several times and a to-go order forgotten on the bill. I felt bad cause it was my selection. I try to support CLE food places but the service is always suspect. May just cook at home from now on.

    We had Sunday brunch and all four of us were pleased with the food. Bananas foster French toast was two full slices of brioche bread topped with carmelized bananas and whipped cream--very good. Two omelettes also got rave reviews. Service was slow--it took us two full hours from start to finish, but that seems to be the norm just about everywhere these days.

    I had been dreaming of Occhio di bu & the basket of pastries for months, finally as Covid is under control I made the reservation to meet friends for brunch. The basket of pastries has been taken off the menu (WHY?!) our server recommended a cinnamon roll which we ordered to share. Food arrived in a timely manner but was disappointing. I love the Occhio di bu and what was served to me was not it. The tomato broth was more like a paste, there were no ceci beans and it had a lot red bell peppers in it. The cinnamon roll was not great either unfortunately. The duck fat potatoes were still amazing thankfully. I had great conversation with friends and it felt good to be out so it was still a nice brunch.

    Dante Next Door is hands down the best place for brunch in Cleveland. The menu is an amazing combination of sweet perfection and savory heaven. Everything is delicious. And the service is always fantastic. If you have never been you have to go. Looking for some place to take someone special. Look no furher.

    Placed a to go order of one item after our food was eaten, and it took close to an hour to receive. We were definitely forgotten about. Restaurant was half full at the time. Server and some guy, maybe hostess, kept reassuring us our food would be out soon, but obviously did not oversee that properly. Never asked if we still wanted it or offered us any compensation for the long wait.
