D'Antan delivered an outstanding dining experience. Highlights are certainly, the charming setting with its unique ambience, the attentive staff and the exquisite food.
The food was amazing! It was very hot inside though - stronger fans or A/C would’ve been super helpful.
The small space was way too warm and the music too loud. Otherwise, the decor and atmosphere could have been enjoyable. The food was mostly good, but one of the entrees was bland. The service lacked professionalism and was not as personal as you would expect for such a small place with only a few tables. The wine was decent, except the second bottle of rosé was warm. I think this place has the potential to be really good, but I would not go back or recommend it at this time. For the price we paid, the experience was not worth it.
Incredible wine selection and great recs from the staff. The food was very flavorful (the stracciatella and anchovies is a must), the pasta al dente and fresh, and the service friendly. Also, it's a beautiful, intimate spot inside and has a lovely outdoor area.
Lovely, sweet place w great service, special wines and food made w care.
The food here is fantastic - very authentic Italian, the pasta is fresh and delicious, and they frequently update the menu
This is a special small neighborhood spot that is making excellent Northern Italian food. Fantastic wine list. Must order the octopus!
Really good food, small servings for the price but overall great quality
Very cute place! Snug indoor and cute outdoor space. But tables are pretty tight. Food was really good, I had the lobster squid ink pasta and it was very nice. Straciatriatella and anchovies were a a great start. Service was good too.
Great Italian food and wonderful wine program with a natural wines… Would absolutely go enjoy dinner here again when we visit Brooklyn
Felt like I was in Italy...very small but charming restaurant and the food was amazing! Will be back. Something we had no idea about was live music on Thursday. Truly a lovely experience.
We had a nice time. The recommended wine was really good - an orange wine that we asked to learn more about. Portions felt small overall for the price. Pastas were good. Also had the steak and it was on the smaller size with no real sides - purée was good but there wasn’t much of it. We had to order something additional as the pastas aren’t ‘main course’ sized - likely meant to be a pasta course followed or preceded by something else. We’d go back and know better how to order now.
Lovely date spot for two! Incredible food and decor. Lovely service. A better place for two than for three (table was a little cramped).
Good food and wine but insanely overpriced!!!
Great local spot that we fell upon and loved
Atmosphere was sophisticated, food was very tasty.
I love this place so much. We came early and were outside at a quiet table.GNOCCHI IS UNREAL.and the orange wine I had was awesome.
Delicious lunch. Great atmosphere. Very expensive though.
The place has a great atmosphere, the outdoor seating area is not good at all. They did not ask how we wanted the steak cooked, looked like they were understaffed. It’s an okay restaurant — not bad but not amazing
Excellent food, service and ambience.
Service was good once they finally came to the table. Food came out fast but in the proper order. The appetizers were good but VERY small small amount. The octopus was half a tentacle for $20? The gnocchi is definitely why you need to visit this place. We also got the duck Ragu and it was extremely bland. I would go again for the service and the gnocchi.
Perfect date night! Can't wait to go again - everyone was so lovely!
It was a fantastic experience with great service and food!
Small adorable and romantic restaurant with excellent wines and pasta. Service was impeccable and I was able to try orange wine for the first time and it was great! The wine recommendations were really on point! Def rec going by glass instead of bottle so you can try different ones! That duck ragu and squid ink pasta w lobster , yummm. Can’t wait to go back.
Really cute small place with a lot of charm and delicious food.
Excellent ambiance, food, and service. This is our go to neighborhood date spot. Also, the best restaurant in Crown Heights.
Dinner was fantastic and the service was great! Love this place so much.
My husband and I had an amazing meal here, order everything but don’t sleep on the veal cheek - so good!
Beautiful location, but the service wasn’t up to par. I get it... you’ve been closed for a while and it’s a busy night. But it took 30 minutes just to get our drinks. The food is very artistic and elegant. I loved my gnocchi dish. I went with a group of not-so-adventurous eaters, and they had a hard time finding something appealing. Maybe the chef could keep the unique menu items, but add some fan favorites so everyone can have something they enjoy. I don’t think I would go back.
Excellent place!!! Wood and service is excellent ,
We had an amazing experience, will be back soon!
Cutest patio tables-- incredible cheese plate, paired with a glass of red with a family vineyard backstory attached. Server was very attentive and made sure to give us the rundown on each dish :)
If you live or work in Crown Heights and are not yet a repeat guest of D’Antan, please consider this paradoxically homey-yet-refined, original-yet-engaging jewelbox any evening between Wednesday and Sunday. The outstanding program of natural wines is a hallmark of Alessandro Trezza, proprietor of Have & Meyer and Terre, in addition to D’Antan.
Every single dish is not only well thought out but also perfectly executed. A lot of wine option. The service is very warm but professional. Highly recommend.
As a repeat guest, this stealth jewelbox has become like “casa mia”, as invited by the chef and his team. Except it’s a lot more charming, delicious, and uplifting than my humble hovel.
For this early-bird off-menu “assaggino”, the theme was a local mozzarella chef had discovered. To start, the cheese was presented atop bottarga, then finished with yuzu, powdered nero di seppia, and chive sprouts. Multiple bold flavor vectors functioned as a “team of rivals” (thank you, Doris Kearns Goodwin).
Then, we shifted gears from contemporary to classical, with chef-made gnocchi alla sorrentina. So light with fresh basil leaves, and satisfying in its simplicity.
To close, I gratefully accepted the most recent experiment at the interface of sweet and savory: on a base of fig mostarda was crumbled brutti ma buoni, topped with Alessandro Trezza’s sublime almond gelato, just a hint of fior di sale Trapanese and baby red shiso. Experiencing narrative art expressed in edible form is fulfilling.
D'Antan's wine selection was incredible. That's about it though, everything was well prepared, but the food was super challenging palate wise. We had the Gnocchi and the Bone Marrow Ravioli.
Food was excellent, lighting, atmosphere. They were playing some sort of 80's hits playlist during the entire eal (Love Shack included) that felt, perhaps, the exact opposite of what I would expect to hear at a place like this. We loved it, it was hilarious
Wonderful decadent contemporary Italian
the best anniversary of our life. superlative food, new, something never seen before, research of the best raw materials and every dish was treated in detail. if you want something absolutely creative, choose d’antan! not the classic Italian restaurant already seen millions of times in new york. exceptional wines I want to move here, thanks guys.
D'Antan is a little bit different than your regular good Italian restaurant. The dishes have all receive the chef's special interpretation. The food is good but the chef adds too many ingredients for my taste -- especially since I think the standard interpretation is really good to begin with.
We had grilled octopus which was good, vitello tonnato which had a sour yogurt taste and was also lemony. For the presentation the vitello slices were curled around some extra herbs rather than flat on the plate. The veal was high quality. We also had ravioli parmigiana. Again the sour/lemony taste was too strong and you could barely taste the tonnato. Most disappointing was portion size -- three ravioli. The portion of the octopus was a bit skimpy; the vitello was short a slice. Worst of all was the tira mi su. Its a foam and has none of the wonderful creamy texture expected. Even the glass of wine was quite stingy.
The price for the main dishes seemed normal but you really get stuck with appetizers, desert, and wine by the glass -- by the bottle they looked reasonable if no a deal.
The service was great.
If you're looking for a bit of adventure you can get it at D'Antan
but the portions are tiny
