Dante Next Door Ratings and Reviews

Enjoyed brunch with mom and sisters. Excellent Food and Service. I enjoyed the Cinnamon French Toast. It was a little bit loud as it got more crowded, but for me that was a good energy, everyone was enjoying themselves. It could be harder for people who have hearing aids.
Beautiful art work on the walls and a very warm feeling to the place!
Will definitely be back again!

The service here really spoiled the entire experience. It was a slow Saturday morning, without many other customers. After a very nice greeting from the hostess, the service went downhill. Our server barely said two words to us and the food came out very late, with strange timing (one person's pancakes, followed by the next person's entrée about ten minutes later). The food was just okay, nothing too spectacular, which is sad because the setting and atmosphere are pretty pleasing. We won't be returning.

This is one of my favorite brunch places in all of NE CLE. The food is wonderful, the décor and atmosphere of the restaurant is great, and the food is fairly priced for the taste and quality. We try to get out here at least once a month and never is anything lacking. It is nice to find a good place, with solid food, at a reasonable price, and where my dining experience from one visit to the next is always consistent.

Waited 15 minutes for waitress after being seated, and after ordering she truly nowhere to be found. I think the food was great little light on the bacon ok the breakfast pizza but besides that very good. This could be a great brunch spot but the service is awful.

We have had dinner and lunch here before but this was the first time we came for brunch. The food and overall experience were great. We sat on the patio and had a great experience. We will definitely be brunch regulars.

This is a favorite of ours for a leisurely Sunday brunch. We weren't disappointed during our past visit. The drink specials (coffee and a wine "smoothie") were quite tasty. The daily omelet and crab cake Benedict were well prepared and presented. The service staff has always been professional and courteous, and well versed in the preparation and ingredients of their offerings.

My husband and I went for brunch. It was fine -- but just fine. The pizza and duck fat potatoes were pretty good; the granola was mediocre. Our server ignored us for long enough (after we ordered drinks but before entrees) that we were about ready to flag down somebody, anybody, else so that we could order.

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.
