I know it's Carnival but...... Last night was awful. Walking in the door I got my head bitten off by a waiter carrying a tray of drinks. The same waiter, on our way out, slammed the door in our faces. Service was super slow - we waited nearly an hour between first and second courses, and there were only about 4 other tables in the restaurant. Worst - the food all tasted the same: pepper. The red fish, the crab, veget... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse

Excellent all around, food was simply the best, staff and service wonderful, restaurant and atmospher outstanding. We were a party of four out to celebrate a birthday, we all ordered diffrent types of meals and drinks, all was excellent. Wait time was about 35 minutes, but was worth it. We will be back!Like this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
Worth the wait. Very popular Sunday brunch, the best Bloody Mary (I had regular, extra spicy is an option). The ""Debris & eggs"" is delicious pulled pork with perfectly poached egg over a honey biscuit covered in a Demi-glaze hollandaise (a lighter rendition).
My husband ordered shrimp and grits covered in a light gravy.
Don't let the simplicity of these dishes fool you, each ingredient is seasoned and complim... view more
I went to Dante's Kitchen once for brunch. The food was just okay and was incredibly over priced. The staff is not very friendly and overall service is really poor. I couldn't eat for three days afterwards. I'm not so sure it was because the food was necessarily bad, but I think maybe it was just overly greasy. For the prices I expect more. I'll never go back. Everytime I think of Dante's Kitchen, the word that comes... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I don't understand why people rave about this place. I've been a few times and was not impressed but decided to give it another chance b/c of the convenient location. We had a party of five for brunch. Two of our orders were completely wrong so all of our food came out at different times. The portions were small. The BLTE (bacon lettuce tomato and egg) sandwich had TWO pieces of bacon and TWO slices of tomato. ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Dante's is one of New Orleans's absolute best restaurants. The shrimp and grits is to die for and you really can't go wrong with of the entrees. My favorite is the gulf fish amandine. I've eaten here at least 10 times and have never had a bad meal. And the staff is friendly and accomodating. If you live in New Orleans, you must try. If you are visiting, stop at Dante's after a streetcar ride to the Riverbend.Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I went back to New Orleans to visit my boyfriend and we were looking to go out one night and have a really nice dinner. A friend recommended Dante's Kitchen; for some reason I had never eaten there despite having lived in NOLA for years. Oh my god, it was amazing. From the soup to the molasses spoon bread to the scallops to the pecandine fish (not amandine because there were no almonds, but the subbed pecans tasted d... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
My general impression of this place is that the dishes without oil (or with little oil) are fabulous and the ones with, or that are fried, are way too heavy. I've had several steamed, grilled and pan-seared fish dishes and found them amazingly light but full of flavor. As for the plates served during two brunches I had there (one chorizo dish, one omelette), both were swimming in oil and didn't have the delicacy an... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
We visited Dante's Kitchen for the Sunday Brunch. No musical accompaniment, but the food and presentation and service more than offset this popular feature of NO sunday brunch competition. I enjoyed a blackened shrimp in red eye gravy, served over grits. If any place here in Michigan served this taste treat, I would drive there EVERY Sunday. My mate ordered the Andoulle Omelette, with Shrimp. Another awesome breakfas... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
