My new favorite brunch in Cleveland! We were all impressed with the food, drinks and service. Only slightly disappointed that the fingering potatoes were too salty for our liking.

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.

I’m never disappointed when I go to Dante’s. I ordered the special vegetarian omelette which was delicious. My friend ordered the French toast with scrambled eggs and bacon, which she loved.

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.

Food was delicious! Service was great-Thank you Tia! Also, there is a small parking lot right next to the restaurant.

I had the cinnamon waffle with caramelized apples. We also ordered eggs, bacon, home fries, and pastries our table, to share. I really liked that you can order family-style sides for the table. It gives you the freedom to order something specialized (burger, waffle, etc.), while not missing out on those classic comfort breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, etc).

My only complaint is that the music was suddenly cranked up really loud a little after we arrived. I believe it was to cover the sound bleed of a band in another part of the building. But, the result was that it took away from the calm, welcoming environment.

Note, they cannot serve alcohol until 11. So you may have to wait for a delicious Bloody Mary or Bellini if you arrive at 10:30. Food and service were great as always.

An unusual experience for a Dante restaurant. Poor attention from hostess station to service staff. The service person did not know what ingredients were called. They were overwhelmed with lack of knowledge of what was available and the number of diners they were responsible for. Had to leave our table several times to get answers to our food and beverage questions ( which were simple, like what kind of beer do you have?) . The wrong food was brought to table, no checking back etc...

Great experience, parents running late and they were still able to accommodate us. John was a great server and excellent representation of DND. Picked up pretty quick after we sat down. Will go back for sure, lots of excellent drink choices and food menu is drool worthy! Parking lot was full when we got there, but lots of parking on nearby streets. Crab cake benedict was superb, other entrees were specials - also very good!
