  • WHAT A MESS- NEVER AGAIN!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/21/2014
    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.

  • The Cedar Plank Salmon is the Best!
    Top10VIP
    Dined on 2/20/2014
    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!

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/13/2014
    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.

    Went for paella and was delicious. Nice selection of spanish wines to compliment the dish. And while there was a nice selection of tapas (small plates) the staff was not very informed on the choices nor able to adequately describe them. Ended up with a dish that was not as expected and would not have been requested if it had been explained correctly. Would recommend printing off a special full menu for these evenings.

    I live in the area and have driven by many times since it opened. Finally reminded myself that I wanted to try it out. Made reservations on opentable, which was honored. The menu online gives you a great idea of the nice variety of food to satisfy different taste in food. The wine list was extensive, bottles a bit overmarket priced, but they had a full bar. The food presentation was exquisite and tasty to the palate. Will be suggesting to friends and going back for sure.

    Spent a lot of money on dinner with friends (and a couple bottles of wine). You would think given what would obviously a high bill that server would have paid extra attention. He did not. And ambience? They have done nothing to help it. Swinging doors to kitchen clearly visible and when they swing views into the mess. Small refrigerators for wine scattered about. Food is good but service and ambience detract too much to make up for it. Won't go back.

    The menu is varied and extensive with an additional daily menu that is delicious. You can spend a little and have just appetizers that are sooo tasty or go for four courses with drinks. The chef-owner frequently peaks out of the kitchen to make sure everything is running smoothly and diners are happy. The food is delicious and creative.

    Dined on 1/9/2014
    After all the reviews/awards I saw for Next Wood on line, I expected much better than we got. Service was slow, and we did not enjoy the bright lights and bare tables as a special night out with friends; it had a cafeteria feel. Artichoke dip appetizer was great, but my duck was a huge disappointment; it was unsightly, a grey colored carcass plopped on the plate - very unappetizing, although not bad tasting. Hidden under the drab duck was a small amount of mashed potatoes, so I had a plate of grey and white. Bleh. No color or garnish on the entire plate! I asked in advance for a special dessert w/ candle for our friend, but that never happened; we had to ask for it in front of her (tacky.) Red Velvet Cake was horribly dry.

    The moment we walked into Next we were seated promptly and served by Josh whom was busy but still able to provide us with ample knowledge of the wine list and menu items and provide excellent service. Our glasses never went empty and we were able to take advantage of the end of the year wine specials. Had a lovely sparkling for only $20 a bottle. To start we shared the Hummus and flatbread which came out from the kitchen promptly before we ordered our main course. We had the Pork Tenderloin as well as the Chicken Breast both served with amazing truffle mashed potatoes and julienned veggies. Finished dinner off with Crème Brûlée and everything was perfect. The ambiance, the service, the food. Just amazing. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

    Our entree was pretty good. There was no bread brought out in the beginning. So you just sit there until your meal arrives. Our experience is that most restaurants bring bread out while you wait. My drink was $17. Seventeen dollars? How is that possible? The most high-end restaurants in Hifhland Park don't cost that much for a simple mixed drink. There is no price on the menu so we didn't know. But $17? Gasp.

    My friend and I love this place! We sort of have a tendency to overstay every time we go. We met for a girlfriends lunch at 11:30 and they basically had to throw us out to prepare for their nightly dinner service! So this speaks volumns about the staff and the food. We had their half sandwich and soup but they have a wonderful selection of entrees to pick from and the lunch prices are awesome! Wine prices are decent too. The location is not the best but trust me you will be glad you took the time!

    Many venues serve a plank salmon, which you typically take away to plate the salmon. At this venue, the plank is your plate, and your mashed potatoes, and veggies (both great, by the way) are all served, along with the fish on the plank, along with decorative sauces. Not only is the presentation colorful and unique, it is priced right, and the fish itself is prepared to order, and of the best quality!

Not only that, but the waiter told us they will soon be serving Mi Sueno cabernet, which, like this restaurant, is a rare find! The prices are also very reasonable, so this is one that should not be missed!
