The food and service at Dante Next Door were very good which I expected. The brunch menu has just enough options to satisfy everyone without being overwhelming. We were all very happy with our meals. The only downside was that we were seated near the door and every time it opened, we received a rush of very cold air. The little heater above the door did not seem to help much at all and the door did not close all the way on its own (the host had to keep running to close it). We will return but never on a chilly/cold day.

The food is really good. The service tends to leave something to be desired, though. Long wait to even be greeted by a server, minimal checkins for refills, etc. Just be prepared to allot 60-90 minutes, even for a simple brunch.

Always have good experiences at Dante and Dante Next Door and this visit was, again, a good one. We had never tried their Sunday Brunch before so it seemed to make sense to give it a try on Dec 31st. The offering was very inclusive...we enjoyed it all!

Excellent brunch / lunch as always at this lively place at the very heart of Tremont. We keep coming back for the steak and eggs, the pizza, and of course the desserts. Service is always excellent and the staff is friendly.

I've been here for brunch a few times and it's never disappointed. Food is marvelous, staff are friendly and accommodating, and the whole look and feel of the place is charming and welcoming. Try the french press coffee and the cinnamon waffles!

Dante Next Door truly lives up the it's namesake, Dante Restaurant. This is by far the best brunch venue in Tremont, and there's no comparison in Cleveland Proper. Blueberry sausage is the perfect combination of fruit and umami, and it makes the Belgian waffles with apple bourbon topping sing out loud. Even the side salad that accompanies the perfectly fluffy omelette-of-the-day is, well, perfectly dressed. Don't miss the Nutella pie for dessert, which again makes Dante Next Door a standout in a crowded local market.

Second time here for brunch. We love their brunch menu. Can't stop ordering crab cake Benedict. Shared that with bananas foster French toast. And our favorite dish of that day was the tiger shrimp and polenta!
Very good service!
Love the vibe!

first time at Next Door. went for Sunday Brunch. Good menu selection. Food was mostly very good. Disappointed in the Maple Syrup Peppered Bacon. It was more like a lowly piece of Sugardale bacon with no flavorings or spices added. Food came out quickly. Server was just OK. I will probably go back but it will be awhile.

Went for brunch. Food was great. All 5 people at my table kept saying how good their food was. Service great and accommodating. Servers kept water glasses full as well. Two suggestions: The music. At one point it got turned up and we looked at each other and said 'why would they do that?' We could not longer carry on a conversation. The other suggestion. Don't serve warm beer. First two beers served to the table were warm but excellent waitress quickly remedied and returned with two ice cold beers. Overall great (been there several time) but the music................don't get why it has to be so loud you can't have a conversation?

I brought my 6 month old son with some girlfriends for brunch. Having worked in the industry I know how restaurant people generally feel about children. However, our server was great. She treated my son like a real person, didn't get annoyed that he made a mess (which I cleaned up) and even let me use the bathroom in Dante to change him because it's easier than that bathroom in Dante Next Door. Then when the busser was watering the table he offered to refill my son's sippy cup!
I have always come to Dante because the food is amazing. But the service this time is what I'll be telling people about. When your employees care it makes all the difference.

The brunch menu was interesting and varied, and two of us (polenta and shrimp, crab cake eggs benedict) loved our food. The berry pancakes were the odd plate out - the ricotta was not detectable. Overall, though, a very nice place to eat.

I and three girlfriends had brunch yesterday, and Dante Next Door scored high marks from our group. I had the bananas foster French toast -- part breakfast, part dessert, both parts were fantastic. Two girlfriends split a pizza and an order of traditional eggs Benedict, while another girlfriend also had the eggs Benedict. We all agreed that it was one of the best brunches we have had to-date (we "brunch" a lot)! The service was also great. We were celebrating a birthday, and they permitted us to bring in a cake. The only negative was that they cannot serve alcohol until 11:00 a.m.; so if you arrive when they open at 10:30, you'll have to wait for your mimosa or a bloody Mary.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was impressed with the quality of the food and the service. I very much enjoyed the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry compote and the maple syrup black pepper bacon for brunch. I have been to other restaurants in this same restaurant group and I have never been disappointed with my experience.

Went on a Sunday morning with a friend for brunch. Checked out the menu ahead of time and both of us were looking forward to our meal. We do brunch pretty often and area always trying to check out new places. Dante Next Door did not disappoint. I got a sweet/savory special they had with eggs and crumbled bacon on top of one of their waffles. My friend got the crab cake benedict. Amazing food and service! We were there pretty early and they couldn't serve drinks till 11 - but the coffee got us through till that time. Can't wait to go back!
