Diner Reviews
  • "Our food at brunch was outstanding! Shrinp & Grits some of the best ever. Our only downside was our waiter. He definitely "had an attitude" and seemed to be put out by having to serve us."

  • "They should mention the price of the Specials if they are going to push them! I did not appreciate finding out the fish entre was $42 when my bill arrived! I will not be back!!!!"

  • "I took a party of 8 to my son's birthday celebration, and was less impressed than on previous visits. Although the food was remained good, the grilled salmon, which is about $10.00 more on the dinner menu, than the lunch menu, was served in exactly the same small portion as it is in the lunch menu. I know because I frequent the establishment for lunch, and always order the salmon. I had only ordered an entree-no appetizer, anticipating it would have been larger, due to the additional cost, and was disappointed. With good reason, as the appetizers are generally expensive, so with a large party, I was trying to conserve-did not work here! I shall return, however, with a smaller party, and enjoy the good food!"

  • "We had a great experience at Next for Father's Day Brunch. Party of six and were seating in nice booth that makes it easy for everyone to converse. Really enjoyed great service and great food. Everything is so fresh. Highly recommend Next."

  • "I treated my friend at NEXT for her birthday and we both greatly enjoyed it! Started with the mushroom risotto, which was absolutely incredible! I want some more now! Then had the cedar plank salmon, again a great dish, and I'm quite picky about my salmon. The Penne a la Vodka was also wonderful! I definitely plan to return!!"

  • "Totally enjoyed our dining experience. Great find so close to home. Wine exceptional. If you love great food and wine as much as we do, you don't need to pay for 5 star "ambience"!! Enjoy"

  • "Very impressed with the entire evening. Excellent menu choices that you will not find at other chain steak houses. Appetizers were magnificent in their creativity. The main course was outstanding. Wine selection was strong with reasonable pricing. Was very busy the night we were there, but you would never know it by the excellent service from all members. Very personable, friendly, and truly caring. The entire evening was easily $100 less than other so called high end eateries. Absolutely wonderful."

  • "When I made our reservations, I specifically requested table away from front door & rest rooms to avoid traffic distractions and to stretch out my left foot. To my disappointment, we were seated right in front of the door & within 20 feet of restrooms. Because I was in a compression boot/cast for a broken ankle, we could not wait another 1/2 hour or longer for another table so we took the one in front of the door. The hostess and the manager did apologize. The food, however, was very good: my appetizer was unique, fresh and very tasty; my husband's and our friends tuna salad looked great and they said was delicious. The eggs benedict and hamburger with eggs were very good. Our waitress was friendly, helpful, made our visit pleasant. "

  • "We'd never been here before, but I'd heard the food was very good. We made an early brunch reservation for Easter. The service was great and the food was terrific! My only complaint might be that most all of the brunch dishes revolved around eggs - not my favorite. The desserts were fantastic, especially the Creme Brulee and bread pudding. Will go back!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "There were so many specials for our family to choose from! They made a great cheese pizza for our three year old granddaughter . Great choice of cocktails and wines too. We all had a great meal and we had three birthday desserts as well! Friendly staff!"

  • "Next looks like an old Taco Bell from the outside but the inside is quaint and homey...nicely decorated. The food is delicious but quite pricey...especially for the portions. It's European so I guess...eat like the French...but I'm not sure about the price comparison. I would definately go back, but I can only afford to go for special occasions. The menu is varied and the Daily Chef Specials all sounded great! I ended up with a 6 oz filet that was cooked just right and delicious (though it appeared quite small) with a small scoop of garlic potatoes that were also yummy (but I could have eaten more). The salads were good but way over priced...8.50 on a small plate. Service was good. Everyone was very attentive."

  • "I saw the article on this restaurant in a local magazine recently and decided to try it. The service was stellar and the food and wine delicious. My only complaint is that the extensive specials menu did not have prices listed nor did the server quote any prices. The regular menu was very reasonable for the quality of food, but we ordered from the specials menu and for 3 of us with tip it was about $247. I don't mind that for special occasions, but it was a little expensive for a Saturday night after church dinner with my husband and son."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Very rushed. We were asked to order 4 times. We explained that we just wanted to relax and the waiter said, well - place your order and I'll put it in when you're ready. We agreed and in minutes the food started coming out. The waiter told the staff, oh wait, they didn't want this out so quickly, Oh well and put it in front of us. Extremely expensive for what you get. My wife and I spent $165. We won't be back."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This little restaurant not only has great food, but the very best wine list! It is immune from the pressures of larger concerns and can order anything they want. They offer the latest Orris Swift (Palermo) and great offerings from the little known but much admired Mi Sueno vineyard in Napa. Good job! I will come here again!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "We live about 5 minutes away from this place and are grateful we have found such a good restaurant so close to our house. When been here about 20 times. Great food, great service, great location. Try it. You will not be disappointed."

  • "our visit to Next Fired Bistro was excellent. Our waiter, Francios, was great.....French accent and all. He made a great wine recommendation that my wife wanted to find again. Food and ambiance was great out in the I guess what used to be a porch. Quiet. Will go again."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "OMG. This was lovely! A girlfriend and I were trying to find a change-of-pace place for a later in the evening dinner, in some place between our two homes (Keller and Flower Mound). We'd seen this place and checked out the online reviews and it did not disappoint. Lovely and distinct wine list (though not many choices by the glass). We split the calamari appetizer, and ate every last crumb - it came with a marinara sauce and with some other fabulous something that was a paste texture barbecue-y/chipotle-y awesome. We split a large pizette - candied fig w pecans, serrano ham, goat cheese. Beyond fabulous."

  • "We were seated quickly, served superbly - and the food, as usual, was great. Can't beat Next."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We had been to Next a couple of times in the past but not recently. We asked ourselves why after this most recent trip. This place deserves a visit often as the food is excellent. I had a salad that was fresh, crisp with slices of Asian pear and just the right amount of light dressing to compliment the greens and not cover up. Lobster and shrimp potstickers were a great choice for a starter. Just right for our party to share. The stuffed shrimp was a special for the night as was the mushroom risotto and both were exceptional."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Very good food. Quiet atmosphere (though I was there for an early dinner). I am not much of a wine connoisseur, but the wine list is very impressive. Prices are "above average", but not unreasonable. Great for a date-night or special occasion."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The first time I was at Next, the service was perfect, food was excellent and the ambiance relaxed and calm. This visit, however, was none of the above. The waiter was hurried and frazzled, our water glasses were filled after every sip (that drives me crazy) yet drinks took 20 minutes to arrive, the food was good but not great, and the noise level was too high to hear my companions. The dishes were okay but tough lamb and tiny portions just don't cut it at this price point. It's also a bit much to have a regular menu with a full page of chef specials and then 8-10 oral specials that the waiter has to read off his list. I will go back for a third try - hopefully this visit was just an off night."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "If you are looking for a casual date night or a night out with good friends and want to enjoy great food and wine this is the place. The service was excellent!! The menu has great offerings. The atmosphere allows you to have great conversation - it's not too loud or too quiet. My only negative is dessert could be better - disappointed they did not offer cannoli's and other traditional Italian desserts."

  • "We loved it and will be back. Fairly near our home and great food!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I would suggest the waiter should ask if you would like a tour of the resturant if this is your first visit. maybe even meet Ying."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The consistency here is a plus, along with occasional new additions such as the new pasta dish, which is very light, and refreshing! We will definitely be back here!"

  • "Next is close home and easy to get too. The bartender annoys me some, but the flatbread is great"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We ate here 3 months ago. Service was terrible, very slow. But the food was good. We thought we would give it another try. What a huge mistake. Nothing has changed in 3 months. Service is still terrible. Service is very unorganized. Servers and bartender did not seem to know what was going on. (Poorly trained?) Took forever to get out drink order in, then server/bartender made the wrong drinks. (This happened twice!) Apps and salads came out together? Then the apps were cold. When we finally got our main course, 1 1/2 hours later, that also came out wrong! We did talk to the owner and she told us that there were other places for us to go eat!!! I would take the owners advice, and find somewhere else to eat! I know that we will not be back."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "This venue is so quaint, but don't let that fool you! The food is simply 5 star in anyone's book. Try the Cedar Plank Salmon for some of the best, cold water salmon ever laid in front of your palate, which is cooked to perfection, and served with potatoes and veggies. If you want an appetizer, I highly recommend the pear pizza-delicious!"

  • "Deb is a great asset to Next her commitment to excellent customer service and knowledge of the wine list is second to none. I have recommended Next to several friends and co-workers. I would highly recommend Next for anything from a quiet dinner to a great place to meet friends or have a business meeting."

  • "Dined with spouse on Valentine's evening. Outstanding experience! The meal, atmosphere, service and wine were perfect. We had a great evening. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We love that NEXT is great cuisine and notably NOT a chain restaurant - both of those are hard to find in this part of NE Tarrant. Service is always very friendly, staff helps us select a great wine at what ever price point we desire. This time we thought the lights were a bit bright - making it more like lunch than a Valentine's romantic dinner. When we mentioned it to the waiter he immediately adjusted the lighting! We just wish that they had automatically replaced the silverware we used instead of our having to ask for more. could have refilled water without our asking, too. But those are small issues compared to the overall expereince."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Excellent Food. The roasted duck is only on the special holiday menu but should be on every time. Every time we have gone we try something new and have loved everything we have eaten."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Have been to Next a few times - food is always wonderful. The service on our last visit was lacking, not so much in effort, but in knowledge about the menu and prices. There is a separate chef's special menu of about fifteen items none of which listed a price, so you had to ask about each one if you were interested. Then an entre selected was quoted at $24 but the price on the charge slip was $34. When this was pointed out to the server he just said he thought it was $24 and took no additional action. I would suggest additional staff training."

  • "Quiet, intimate dining. Wild rice risotto was delicious, pork tenderloin was flavorful, wedge salad was ordinary and too full for dessert. Excellent service, good wine list. An upscale restaurant without having to drive to Dallas and Ft. Worth. Who knew this used to be a Taco Bell? Only the doors and remnants of the "drive thru" lane gave it away! We will visit again."
