Nice bright decor. Crabcake eggs Benedict was delicious! My friend really liked the potatoe special of day with veggies. Brunch isn't Brunch without a few nice glasses of champagne. Topped it off with homemade warm banana nut bread and raspberry turnover.

Have dined here for lunch very often, but the dinners and chefs table is outstanding, if you ever have an opportunity to embark on such an event the chefs table is outstanding, the food, staff, servers I cannot say enough for the efforts that Dante, Melissa, and the staff did for a surprise birthday party for my wife. "PRICELESS"

We were with a very large group for Sunday brunch (post wedding brunch) and the hostess and servers could not have been more accommodating and gracious...we had a lovely time! French press coffee and blueberry lemon pancakes...delicious!!!
Good standard brunch!
Dante's brunch was fun and the food and service were good. It's not a super fancy brunch and the room is small but we still enjoyed it. Cocktails were excellent especially the bloody mary. The hot olive version was not super spicy but had a subtle kick and came with cubes of cheese and meat as well as the obligatory olives. The bacon and eggs were standard fare and cooked as requested, potato tart was a take on latkes. It seemed strange that the share plates were individual sizes (small) and we had to order additional food. The pasta carbonara frittata was undercooked and had almost no carbonara ingredients - - just tons and tons of egg - disappointing. Our favorite entree was the giardiniera pizza - unusual but it worked. We tried ordering the pastry basket for the table but were told they didn't have pastries . . . . odd. Our server was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was clean and well maintained but not highly decorated and luxurious by any means. We will try this place again the next time we're in Cleveland.
Very disappointed in my recent trip to Dante's next door. Our service was very slow. (Patrons who came in after us were served long before we were.) My plate was hotter than the food that was served on it. It had been a year since I last ate here and my favorite thing, some wonderful donuts, was no longer on the menu. It was replaced by some commercial pastries. All in all, a bit of a let down.
Service Slow... very slow
Have eaten at Next Door many times BUT the last several times the service of the food getting to the table has been very, very slow, like 30+ minutes last two times. In fact, some of the meals were warm, not hot. The brunch is one of the area best we have eaten at, but is slipping in our experience. The parking lot helps when you can get in it as parking in Tremont can be challenging. We will return but running out of chances.
Perfect spot for Sunday brunch with friends. Crab cake eggs benedict were divine, and the carbonara frittata was hearty & indulgent. (Like having breakfast, lunch & dinner all at the same time!) The duck fat potatoes are a must try. Whole fingerling golden potatoes crisped in duck fat -- elevates an ordinary potato into a thing of culinary beauty.
great place for Sunday brunch
This was our first time dining here. A friend and I went for brunch before going to the theater in downtown Cleveland. We loved it. Cool, casual atmosphere; fantastic food with an interesting spin on traditional bunch foods; great unusual brunch drinks; and spectacular service. We've been highly recommending it to our friends as a great place for brunch.
Excellent brunch! Stellar desserts.
A group of 6 went to celebrate a birthday, and everything was amazing. Friendly service, delicious cocktails and the food is incredible. I ordered the Pasta Carbonara Fritatta, and it was very tasty. If you like sweets, do not pass up the Nutella Pie!
I took my sister here for Sunday brunch while she was in town and we were not disappointed! I have been to Dante before for dinner, so I can't say I'm surprised that this brunch was fantastic. We ordered the rosemary french toast, crab cakes benedict, blueberry sausage, and duck fat potatoes (as well as a couple of brunch cocktails). Everything was fantastic. The service was great as well - very friendly and attentive employees. The patio was very nice - even though it was 90 degrees out. I would HIGHLY recommend this place; I will definitely be going back!
Dante was as usual an excellent choice for lunch.
Dante is our favorite place for lunch/brunch. Their gluten free pizza cannot be beat and the salmon salad was absolutely phenomenal. Everyone was very pleased with their meal, especially the birthday boy who got an amazing nutella dessert that he said the fantastic!
Food was Great
Visited for Sunday brunch; service was a little off, but food was great. Those who ordered pancakes were very pleased; I ordered the "Bulls-eye Egg" dish, and it was excellent. All in all a wonderful brunch - will definitely return despite service issues, none of which were major but a number of minor things not typical of Dante's.
This restaurant got such high reviews online that I thought it would be a great treat to take my aunt there to celebrate her birthday. The host was nice but the service was extremely slow. Maybe our waiter was having an off day but he wasn't very friendly, welcoming or informative. The atmosphere was OK. The food was average - not bad but not really unique and not so tasty that I would rush back. Again, maybe my expectations were just too high. Cleveland has too many really good restaurants for me to waste my time going back here.
