Diner Reviews
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "My wife and I loved going to Tastings and were sad when it closed and Wegmans decided to open up Next Door. We've been to Next Door several times since it opened, and it is always good, but never as "great" as Tastings was. We went there a couple of days ago and were elated to see a 4 course Tasting option. We both ordered it, choosing different items, and enjoyed every course. The poached farm egg was absolutely amazing. The pecan tart for dessert was actually just okay though - kind of dry and much too savory. Everything else was perfect though. Next Door isn't great for a romantic evening, unless you luck out with a table in a private area. The tables in the main area are way too close together."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Wegman's has gotten it right, again. Bustling activity, a trendy menu, and nice wine list. The Next Door Grill is always a safe bet for a classy and well cooked dinner."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "What else would you expect from Wegmans? Meat was cooked perfectly, and the sashimi salad was wonderful!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Crazy roll sushi appetizer - very good. Calamari salad - very good. Medium rib eye with chocolate bbq sauce - amazing. A couple drinks. Wife has similar and was similarly pleased. $125 before T&T."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "From the wine list, to the service, to the food. Everything was superb. I would recommend this to anyone who is going on a date or with large groups."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We loved dining here. The food was absolutely delicious, and innovative. Very fresh ingredients. We sat at the bar where you can see the kitchen activity. Our service was outstanding, every one working there was very accommodating (gluten free,) and friendly. A few of the chefs even checked in while we were dining. It was fun! Amazing homemade ice cream."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We brought a colleague visiting from Hong-Kong to Next Door for a taste of the Best of Rochester. Our dinner did not disappoint. One of us has celiac, another lactose intolerance; as always, Next Door (Wegman's in general) is sensitive and accommodating. They had Gluten Free sweet bread balls and made the UNBELIEVABLE Tsunami sushi rools with GF soy sauce. Our meal was delicious. Our colleague was impressed with the food and service. One particular treat: we tried the blood orange sorbet for the first time. Outstanding. Must try it. Only critique: the chocolate dessert (with salt caramel, chicory) was not as good as the rest of the meal and desserts."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We loved it! We celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday. She absolutely loved her food and the total experience! Sitting at the chef's table is a neat experience."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Next Door Bar & Grill is a lovely place for an interesting dinner. The decor is fresh and innovative and the service was timely. I had asked for a table in one of the side rooms away from the bar and the kitchen and they accommodated us. It is a little quieter in these rooms and easier to make conversation. The food was yummy with some different choices rather than your typical fare. Everyone in the party enjoyed the evening."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We took my 88 year old mother-in-law to lunch at Next Door Bar and Grill. My husband and I have been to the restaurant a few times and wanted to show her something new. She thoroughly enjoyed herself .. the food and service was excellent as usual."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Great dining experience. Next time we are back in town we will be coming back."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Had an excellent meal at Next Door. Several exception menu standouts were the french fries, the lava sushi roll, the flat iron steak and the roasted veggie platter. Lovely seating in round circular booth, and attentive service."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Very delightful evening including exceptional wines, appetizers, sushi and a signature salmon dish. Well-mannered, gracious friendly staff that is knowledgeable, talented and truly knows teamwork. From the parking valets to the hosts/hostesses, coat check and servers I felt like a special guest. Other diners comfortable both casually dressed and finely attired. Our selections mad for excellent tastes, good variety and generous portions of artfully presented and perfectly prepared fresh foods. We had no room for dessert, but no leftovers either."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Next Door was again a wonderful dining experience. Excellent fresh offerings, interesting sauces and pairings. Next Door continues to impress."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We recently visited Next Door Bar and Grill for a 'Girls Night Out' and were pleased as usual! The gourmet food was perfectly prepared and the service was spot on. Additionally, the staff were flexible (they allowed us to change our table to a booth), attentive without being pushy, and the recommendations made to us by our waiter were informed. We will definitely be back on our next 'Girls Night Out'!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "This place works for us every time we visit. There's a number of very good choices for any type of food you're in the mood for. Very nicely done."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Our server Patrica was absolutely incredible. Patricia greeted us right away, all smiles and only six months of working there, she knew everything! She gave very detailed descriptions of every meal brought to is even our dessert. The service was fast but very enjoyable we didn't feel rushed at all. Complimentary champagne, was such a nice touch to help us celebrate. She brought us an entree that we've never tried before and it was incredible! We had such a great night and we will be coming back soon and requesting patricia everytime we do! Thanks again, all your staff was amazing and made our night perfect! And hats off to Derek for making incredible sushi as always!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We received exactly what we came for: an interesting menu, choices at various price levels, and truly excellent quality of the food and the staff."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I went to the Next Store Bar and grill on a date with my girlfriend. It is a great place to dine. It is very romantic but at the same time it has excellent food and friendly and helpful staff."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I love going to Next door. Everything about this place is wonderful. I have severe allergies to anything dairy, and am usually very untrusting of people to know what I mean by that, and over explain it. At next door, I say I'm allergic to dairy, and the waiter or waitress will immediately go down the menu with me telling me what has dairy and can't be removed, what has dairy, but can be prepared with it, or what is completely dairy free. It also has some of the best Sushi we've ever had!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Our second visit, interesting menu, good wine choices, excellent desserts. The chocolate cinnamon BBQ sauce for the prime rib was delish, and it was cooked perfectly."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were searching for a new daytime date/dining experience focusing on an organic and loca-vore menu. For the last few years we have focused on : Lento for an evening date ; and in Skaneateles; Elderberry Pond for a day-trip and Mirabeau Spa for a weekend get-away. We wanted to book a Valentine's lunch date and we felt that we made the perfect and excellent choice. The rustic elegance of the décor, atmosphere and menu; we loved the contrast. As in "Parisian 6th Arrondisement" meets "Fingerlakes Rustic" meets "Industrial - Chic". We have found a new favorite to add to our personal list of Go-To's."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Seemed like the restaurant was busy but not so busy that service would be impacted. It took a while in between courses and it took a noticeably long time to get drinks. Butternut squash soup and sushi were very good though. Grilled salmon was tasty."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We come here often and are never disappointed. The food and service were absolutely wonderful, in addition to the wines that we had. Thank you for another great experience at Next Door."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The organic chicken served with pureed turnips and wild rice was outstanding. It's hard to impress with chicken, but this was so flavorful and perfectly prepared. Patricia our server was delightful and knowledgeable - outsdanding food and service."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "We celebrated a birthday and everything was perfect: excellent Martini, great food, friendly and efficient service, great ambience (a real wood-burning fireplace makes the decor even more beautiful this time of the year.) The restaurant provided a glass of champagne and candles on cake to make this a memorable birthday celebration. We have been there a few times before and again we were very pleased with this dinner."

  • "Service and atmosphere was great; restaurant very clean. However, menu lacked options, very limited choices. Desert menu did not have gluten free option, other than ice-cream."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The dining experience was exquisite from the moment we entered through our departure. Servers friendly, classy, menu and wine list extensive to meet many tastes. I look forward to a future dining experience."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Just went for the first time as a date night idea. Booking the reservation was easy and convenient and service was excellent. The restaurant was at a appropriate temperature so not so hot that I needed to loosen my tie but could dine comfortably with my date. In the winter months places tend to over heat the restaurants. Will be going back agian for sure."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Somehow Next Door's affiliation with Wegmans stores makes this gem of a restaurant elegant and high quality. The food is imaginative, a treat for tongue and eye. The service is attentive but not hovering. The ambience is warm and a little quirky: see the wall of rough-cut logs hanging from chains. We had a 4 course tasting menu, and the chef made adjustments for my extensive food allergies and my husband's gluten free diet. The scrumptious butterscotch creme brulee arrived with a candle and "happy birthday" inscribed on the plate in chocolate drizzle... A delightful way to end the meal. I wholeheartedly recommend this eatery for any kind of outing where the high-ish prices are part of a special night out."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The service was excellent, above normal. The flat steak was very, very salty and I would never order it again. I have had the seafood and sushi in the past and I would recommend going in that direction."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Stopped in while passing through Rochester for an early dinner. Tasteful, stylish decor. Our booth by the fireplace was extremely uncomfortable. Service friendly. Food perfectly prepared - desserts outstanding! Very expensive."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Next Door is even better with the recent interior changes. They have more comfortable booths and the noise level is vastly improved. The menu is varied and interesting. I have a new favorite: the Duck Reuben. The Blue Crab/Avocado Salad is also a stand-out. The service is excellent too. We were greeted warmly as we entered and our server was both cheerful and attentive. We had a great experience. I'm glad I live close by this restaurant!"
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Our server was the BEST! My mother-in-law was in from out of state so he served us a complimentary champange toast."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Next Door was exactly what you thought it would be - very good - but not great. I enjoyed it tremendously. The seating is a bit cramped for a place in upstate NY - if it was NYC, I would understand. The service tonight was excellent, the food was very good but the ambience reeked of Pittsford, NY - trying to be something its not when what it is - is plenty good enough."
