We loved just about everything at this place. Went with another couple for dinner and we were all quite impressed. Service was awesome, atmosphere great, unique/cool art throughout and the food - WOW! We had the boudin rouge, thit kho, trois mignons, redfish on the half-shell, chicken roasted under a brick and some desserts (forget names). All the dishes were... More

Although the food here was OK, I used to eat here years ago and remember it being much, much better. A friend and I came here for brunch while I was back in town and although my shrimp and grits were pretty good, her crab and brie omelet was absolutely swimming in cheese which overpowered any other flavours. We both... More

Went for a Sunday brunch with a group of friends. Total 6 of us. My comments: Atmosphere: very New Orleans Style, casual yet somehow elegant. Nice music playing at a volume that allows to hear it but also have a conversation without shouting. Service: very good, attentive and certainly focused on getting the job done. Polite Attitude Food: good quality,... More

Had a delicious meal at Dante's Kitchen for an anniversary meal recently. I had the seared gulf fish filet and my wife the trois mignons. All was cooked perfectly and despite having some ingredients I had never had before, we both had great meals trying new things. Certainly not cheap, a bit on the high end, but I didn't walk... More

Can't say enough about this place! Best brunch I've had in years! The Bloody Mary was delicious, but the brandy milk punch is a MUST TRY! We had the tenderloin & poached eggs & the pork loin eggs Benedict & we raved about them all day! We will be back! :)

Born in New Orleans and live in Baton Rouge. I can say that the absolute best shrimp and grits are found at Dante's Kitchen! Also try the eggs Benedict. Never disappointed.

Casual and colorful decor, great food and service. I ordered the mussels, which were delicious, and the beet salad, also very good, except that the spinach was unnecessarily overly salty. I would definitely go back.

The flavors, portions-for-cost, and atmosphere were phenomenal. Service wasn't the best - my companion and I like to order one or two dishes at a time, and keep going until we've had our fill, in one way or another. Our Server wanted us to order all our courses at one time. I refused, and she was difficult, but in the... More

A view overlooking the walk in was not great. The food was good and well prepared but lacked the WOW factor and was a little pricey for the portion. Nothing bad and worth another trip
