My wife and I went to dinner with another couple. We had an amazing evening previously having Gus as our server. It’s not that he did an amazing job and was able to answer all our questions but, it seemed so effortless for him. Truly a subject matter expert. As vegans we don’t get to have a meal at this caliber very often. Chef Jeremy put together a night to remember for us. It wasn’t traditional food turned vegan, he curated a tasting menu of amazing dishes you wouldn’t even think of as vegan, only as delicious!

That was our previous experience. Wanting to share this, we decided to bring friends this time. We didn’t just happen to get lucky on our first visit, the evening was basically replicated. Same delightful experience but with new flavorful dishes to enjoy. Obviously this team has got it locked down. The only downside to this evening is knowing I can’t do it every night.

Shout out to Chef Jeremy and Gus. Thank you for an evening to remember. That’s not the last time you’ll see our faces!

We had not been to Next Door for a very long time. When I received the email w/the Valentine's Day menu, I was intrigued and excited. The food was amazing. Perfect portions. Our server, Sarah, was amazing and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the menu. We look forward to returning to Next Door in the very near future.

We were expecting the very typical welcoming atmosphere and excellent service which has always been our experience at Next Door. The young male host was quite dismissive and not at all a welcoming presence. Are you sure he is the best face for the job. The wait for our table of 20+ minutes stemmed much longer than usual with a reservation. The service in the dining room was not much better. 2.5 hours from arrival to departure seems a little long for salads and 6 rolls of sushi. I know this experience was unusual from our past experiences but thought you should be aware. The young male host in I think a red jacket on Saturday night really was just awful.

I invited my mother and sister to lunch at Next Door. This is my go to restaurant for entertaining clients, having a great dinner with my husband and friends, and celebrating with my staff at the end of the year party. They have the most amazing sushi in Rochester. Their salmon is outstanding. There are plenty of options of a variety of food. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. The restaurant is beautifully designed.

Love, love, love Next Door! I’ve never had a bad meal there. The atmosphere is lovely though it can get a bit loud when busy. I frequent the bar often for a quick drink and sushi during happy hour. The bar tenders are wonderful, notably Kate and JJ. You’ll be pleased with dining at Next Door!

Our first visit here and everything was outstanding. Service was like clockwork from the minute we were seated without being annoying. For appetizers, I had a charred broccolini salad and my husband had a sushi roll. The sushi was the best he's ever had with the seafood being so fresh,and my appetizer was different and equally as delicious. His red snapper dinner special was one of the best seafood meals he has had, and my duck breast entree was also just outstanding and far superior to any I have had in other restaurants. The pear cardamon dessert we shared was also exquisite. Prices are a little on the high side, but it is understandable when you see the freshness, quality and beauty of every item served. Will definitely go back.

We always love Next Door for their innovative dinner menu, went for lunch and were just as blown away. The bento box is packed full of the freshest sushi and sashimi I've ever had! Wonderful salad, dressed perfectly, and great portions! The Poke bowl is a flavorful healthy way to go, the poke sauce should be bottled and sold! Great service, love the open floor plan, the fireplace was great on a cold day! For a quick delicious lunch, or a long leisurely dinner, you can find exactly what your looking for at Next Door!

We have been going to next door since it opened on average every other month.

This was by far the worst experience we’ve ever had from a good and customer service perspective.

Sadly we will probably never go back.

Food and service were really good. Servers are really nice and know their stuff. The ambience is also very good, it was a bit too noisy that night but that's okay. Food isn't cheap but very high quality, you definitely get what you pay for.

Only issue was that, our reservation for a party of 5 was at 8:30 pm, and everyone in the party were already present at 8:25 pm (some arrived 20 minutes early). However, we weren't seated until around 8:55 pm. Have to dock one star for that. I go to this restaurant all the time and its the first time it happened. Still a very good experience overall.

We had a very nice New Year’s Eve dinner. The restaurant has a nice ambience and from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. We chose the the three course tasting menu and it was absolutely outstanding. The portions were perfectly sized, the sushi was very fresh and all of the dishes were full of flavor. It was a busy night but we were never hurried and the service was excellent.

This was the first time I ever used Open Table. It was easy to use and very efficient. When we got to the restaurant though, our seating assignment was very unsatisfactory. We were put in a room that also was used for cooking classes. A speaker blaring music was directly over the table. My guests were upset as was I with this seating assignment. I had made reservations 9 days earlier. I know it is a busy time for restaurants, but I was expecting a better table, not one I would have expected as a walk in on a Saturday night. To Next Door’s credit they did get us a better table so we ended up staying and had a satisfying meal. Not sure if this was on the restaurant or OpenTable, but I will give Opentable one more try. Stay tuned...
PS. Next Door made one of the best martini’s I have ever had!
