Was able to secure a table for 7 of us to celebrate a birthday. John was our guy and brought the birthday girl a glass of campaign for a toast. 5/7 of us had the brunch special- The Morning After and it was amazing. We had 5-star service, would highly recommend and will definitely return.

We had loved Dante’s Next Door last Easter, but this year was a bit disappointing because of the situation of our table. We were near the door and under the sound speaker. This made for a chilly and noisy brunch. I have learned to be specific about requesting a table on our next visit. The food and service were both very good

Charlotte was our server for a birthday brunch for our granddaughter. She was just perfect - attentive but not obtrusive. We had a great booth in the back of the restaurant that was cozy and it felt like a private party. The food and drinks were delicious including the complimentary pastry in honor of her birthday for dessert. We will definitely return!

A Dante brunch is always the best way to enjoy a weekend day. His cooking is amazing and his menu is so incredible that it makes it hard to decide on a dish. But, whatever you choose is wonderful. They also do a fabulous Bloody Mary. Always a treat to go to a Dante restaurant.

Went to brunch for a family bday celebration... server was initially friendly and we had a really nice table. After the drinks came, she virtually disappeared and the rest of our experience was subpar. Unfortunately we probably won't be back, I left disappointed. My dad couldn't even get refills on his coffee, it was pretty bad.

Brunch has always been good here but this time. it really exceeded our expectations. Between five of us we had the burger, steak and eggs, margarita pizza, ham and gruyere omelet and the Bullseye. Each were perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. The server, John, was also impeccable and went out of his way to ensure everything was just right. We will definitely be back.

One hour wait, very ‘mean’ waitress. At the end of the 1 h wait 3 in our party of nine had changed seats. They are children: 8, 6 and 4 years old. When they brought the food the waiters (not one but two) expressed annoyance for the fact the kids had moved.... They showed no respect: after an hour wait for brunch with the restaurant 70% occupied they should have been grateful that we didn’t leave....

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.

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.

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!
