Diner Reviews
  • "Extremely pricey. However completely understood why the meals were so costly."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Server was engaging and attentive. Ambiance and decor was nice and modern."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I was utterly overwhelmed by the outstanding food. Best sushi in Rochester. On top of that the service matched perfectly. What a great dining experience."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "It was our first time eating on the outdoor patio and was surprised there wasn't more than a glass wall between the table and busy Monroe Ave traffic. (We thought it might be quieter than the usually boisterous noise level in the dining room.) The wine was fantastic, food was either very good or excellent, and service was attentive. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Rochester, though I often choose elsewhere if I am looking for a quiet/intimate environment."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a great evening at Next Door! We sat on the outdoor patio and enjoyed our meals. Our server was extremely attentive and friendly."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Incredible food though the loud music from speakers took a bit away from the experience. I will go back and eat indoors with live music next time."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Overall, my girlfriends and I had a nice time. We were celebrating a few things and our server recommended complimentary Cava (nice touch!). Service was good. The food was tasty but I was disappointed that there weren't any specials (though there were plenty of good options on the menu). Also, we weren't presented with a cocktail list an the dessert options were a let down. Great space though!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My sister and I had a great lunch (she had the salmon, I had the chicken salad), but the dessert fell flat; we ordered the blueberry dessert with the smidge of lemon sorbet. We found it to be without flavor and a very small portion for the price."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Next Door is a surprisingly upscale place with great dinning, a superb ambiance, good service and a very charming atmosphere. It is a favorite when in town visiting my daughter and granddaughter."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday here this past Saturday and ordered the four course menu with the wine pairings. We split the menu so that we could try everything - it was all amazing! The wines paired very well with the food. Our waitress was excellent as well."

  • "Next Door is the ultimate Wegman's which we all love. The food is delicious and service excellent. The atmosphere is very pleasant as well. Definitely go."

  • "Great food....Even better service....Always exceeds my expectations"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "OK for special occasions. A bit pricey. Not too many choices for vegetarians. Good service."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "As always, the food was great. Although the bottle of chardonnay that we ordered was warm. The service was very good but the noise level was a bit high. I think it is the design of the dining room with high ceilings that carries sound. We dine here on our birthdays and it is one of our favorite local restaurants. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Loved the decor. Friendly, attentive service. Delicious and eclectic food. Will definitely return!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and we selected the night's Tasting Menu with paired wines this past Saturday night. Everything was perfect - the food was amazing and the wines were matched perfectly. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, and the evening was memorable on every level. A+"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Had a wonderful experience with my boyfriend for my birthday. We had a reservation but came an hour early to enjoy happy hour. They had some nice signature house drinks that were half off but the selection was limited. The atmosphere was very quaint and overall the restaurant was not very big and a reservation is a must. Several waiters and waitresses were constantly helping our table and were always available. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked perfectly and served in good sized portions."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The Sushi is the best in Rochester ... it's just a great experience all around."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Next Door is one of my favorite spots in Rochester - usually we go on weekends but found on a Thursday night it was quieter and a bit more relaxing. We loved our wine, waiter, sushi and my dinner companion's main dish (bolognese). My main dish, the cobia, unfortunately was a disappointment! The garlic on top of the artfully prepared dish was OVERPOWERING. Looking back I should probably have sent it back (I scraped the majority of the pungent, partly burned garlic off), but it I felt bad doing so because I like the restaurant and waitstaff so much. I WAS very happy, as always, that they were very accommodating to my dietary restriction (gluten free). "

  • "Outstanding dinner, highly creative, beautifully presented, excellent service, and a romantic table for a special dinner.....who could ask for more?!!!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "As always our experience was exquisite! We were fortunate enough to have the same server the past two times we went and again Ben was a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to have take care of us. He remembered us and gave great recomndations for our meal! We are looking forward to the next visit "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "As we were waiting by the bar, I thought a live jazz band was playing. Great sound system! Service on a Thursday evening went smoothly. Large sushi selection! Duck was done perfectly, tasted fantastic. Blueberry tart was a great finish. Very happy with our decision to come here - will be back again."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • " Our server Ben was the utmost professional, knowledgable waiter that we have ever encountered. He asked if this was a special occasion, and it was for us. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. My husband had the Kurobuta Pork Chop "Oscar". I had Salmon a la Plancha The waiter surprised us with a glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary! My husband's thick pork chop melted in his mouth and my salmon was juicy, tender and cooked to perfection. We have already recommended this restaurant to others. "

  • "This was our second time and we were just as impressed as the first time. Next Door by Wegmans blends seasonings in a way that is surprising and enhances the dish. The food is very fresh. The servers are friendly and very attentive. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Great food - great service! The server was attentive and the food was incredible"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Though we've eaten there several times, this most recent visit was outstanding! Next Door by Wegmans just keeps getting better."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "There were 4 of us for dinner. One had a pasta dish, one a burger, and two had sushi. We split salads, since their salads are very generous. We all thought the salads were very well done and 3 of us are avocado lovers and slices of avocado are part of their green salad which made it particularly appealing. Our sushi dishes were perfect, the best sushi in town and better than some of the sushi I had in Japan (and we've been to Japan 4 times and been taken to excellent restaurants). The pasta and burger were rated top-notch. This is a wonderful place that keeps very much on top of what their customers want."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Stood waiting at a front desk for 10-15 minutes ( just us - no one else ) while hostess held phone to her ear and did not so much as acknowledge our presence. Other employees walked by but did not offer to seat us. Eventually found out that another member of our party was already seated and waiting on us while we stood waiting to be seated. The place was not busy, half empty in fact. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "This was our first time Love it all. The friendly service from phone reservations to bartender & waitress. Nice, hip scene. Fabulous food. A great hot spot for Pittsford. We will be back!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Upon arrival we were greeted courteously by the staff. Our reservation was acknowledged, but we still had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated. They did however in ite us to the bar where we were offered complimentary drinks while we waited (very nice!). Nice table. Great ambiance with soothing lighting. I ordered tasting menu and my wife ordered the burger and an app of truffle Mac & cheese. The truffle Mac and cheese was tasty, but had almost no cheese. Again we were comped for that (thanks). My wife's burger was overlooked (she asked for med-rare & got med well) but was so tasty that we didn't complain. My sushi was great, my second course & desert were lovely but my filet was over cooked yet so tasty and tender that I didn't complain. "
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Great friendly and informative staff. The food was very well prepared and presented. The martini selections seemed too feminine, but still very tasty. Greatest feature is the for-hire party room in the front of the restaurant. Was there for one occasion and would jump at the chance to attend another party there. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I love the decor, seating and service however, there absolutely need to be more entree selections for me to be able to return. My fiancée and I are not seafood or sushi lovers so the selection was very limited for us. That was very disappointing."

  • "My love for Wegmans extends to the Next Door Restaurant. With signature dishes and a unique style of decoration, Next Door is perfect for special occasions or a night out with friends. Two of my friends and I met for a farewell dinner on April 22nd around 7 pm. I luckily had made online reservations earlier in the day since the venue was rather busy for a Tuesday night. We never had to ask for our water to be refilled. I appreciated our waitress Morgan bringing me gluten-free muffins and explaining which dishes I could eat or alter based on my sensitive diet (gluten and lactose intolerances). She even brought me extra muffins to take home since I loved them so much. I was, yet again, extremely satisfied with my experience."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Such a great dining experience. Exquisite food, amazing service. High recommend. Wegman's is the greatest! "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Innovative decor, open kitchen, smaller private rooms all make the setting very memorable. Food was very good, but not over the top. The wine list was extensive, with good choices of bottles starting at about $30."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Most impressive wine list I've ever seen. Ideal for special occasions only as too expensive to frequent on a regular basis. "

  • "Went there for lunch with girlfriends. The decor and ambience of the restaurant is fabulous. We felt the service was a bit slow and there were not that many diners. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu. The organic chicken salad is a wonderful lunch meal. We shared three desserts all of which were good and beautifully presented. Great cup of coffee. A little pricey but nice for a special occasion lunch or dinner. The open air kitchen and glass wine rooms add to the ambience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The entire place and the bathrooms are super clean."

  • "Very nice ambience, there was a singer the night we were there and he was great. Special occasion only for us because a little pricey."
