Next Door by Wegmans
Take a seat at our Sushi Bar and you’ll see what we mean. Our chefs hand-select the best seafood (everything from wild salmon and scallops to sustainable farm-raised tuna when available), combining it with authentic Koshihikari rice that’s milled fresh every 3 days for us, real Japanese wasabi, and gluten-free soy sauce that’s custom-brewed to our special standards. Chefs Loi, Satoshi, and Mikami are masters with ingredients like this. Reserve your seat at our Sushi Bar now, and watch as they create a memorable meal just for you.
The staff is always wonderful and they best sushi in Rochester.
Great service, quality food, relaxing setting
Despite the star ratings I would reccomend a visit. We have dined at NExt Door several times since it opened. The food and service are always very good. Prices are somewhat inflated for what you recieve but that can be found in many places. Our most recent visit was to celebrate our anniversary. We made reservations a week in advance. Upon our arrival, about 10 minutes early, we were escorted to the dining area that they use for special events and cooking demonstrations even though we passed by many open tables for two in the manin dining area. They apparently were using this room as an overflow room. The ambiance was less that pleasing. Including us there were were eventually 6 tables being used in this room. Most all of the patrons were discussing thier seating locations. We probably should have complained but did not. So when you make reservations you may want to ask where you are going to be seated.
I have been several times for dinner, this was my first lunch. Menu was very limited and high. Wish there had been more salads and perhaps a cup of soup with a sandwich. Service was great. I’ll return but probably not for lunch.
I brought out of town guests, one was a restaurant owner for 30 years and the other a wine officiando. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We shared an appetizer of foie gras which was quite tasty. The portion was a bit small. Two of us had duck breast. The preparation was unique and very delicious. The duck was tender and prepared well. The other guest had a pork shank which was melt in the mouth and fall off the bone tender. It was outstanding.
The wine selection was excellant. Our server Sarah was delightful and explained all the dishes.
You can't go wrong with anything stamped with the Wegmans name! Next Door was fabulous for my girls night, and any other occasion I may stop in for...dinner, drinks or both! Our server was amazing and funny. We had a corner booth opposite the sushi bar, with a view of the kitchen...it was amazing to watch everyone work! It can get a little pricey, but you know the saying "you get what you pay for," and it rings true here! I'll definitely be back!
The service and food was excellent. We were placed in a booth toward the side back of the restaurant so the noise level was lower -- would have been too loud in the main part of the restaurant. Our server, Cheryl, was delightful. The only possible complaint would be the cost -- we knew going in that Next Door was pricy, but it is definitely a place we can only go to for special occasions. Thank you for a special evening.
Great food and service is at Next Door.
The overall experience was excellent. This was my second time here and it was on par with the first time.
Our waiter was exceptional!
Very good night
Always great but our server John always makes the evening more special.
We were seated in a separate room which reduced the noise level. Our waiter, John was knowledgeable, polite and well trained. He never once interrupted our conversation. Our bus boy, Jacques was engaging and friendly as well. The food was delicious and while we enjoyed having sushi appetizer we do wish there was more of a variety in the appetizers as a whole. Overall, a pleasant experience which we plan to repeat.
The experience was amazing. Team shows great skill and we look forward to our monthly attendance.
The presentation and flavor of the food was outstanding, BUT, $30+ for 3 medium sized scallops?
Great experience, food, and service.
Decent food but not worth the price. Won't be returning any time soon.
As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Next Door. It never disappoints. Cheri was a wonderful server and made our night very enjoyable. Since the absence of the butterscotch creme brulee, we have skipped dessert on the past few visits because nothing on the dessert menu stood out. However, that changed on this trip and we went crazy over the new brownie dessert. It was amazing and we hope it stays on the menu for a long time!
Food took along time to be prepared.
Greet per usual!
Eileen was our waitress and very attentive. We always request for her to be our server.
The menu selection has something for everyone from causal dinner to celebration. Our server Tanya and all that supported her were friendly, informative, helpful, went the extra mile to allow us to have a very, very special evening. As my friend who works in the industry said, it was clear that the folks who worked at Next Door were happy. When we inquired, the longevity of your employees speaks for itself and the satisfaction and engagement translates to the customer experience. Congratulations!
As usual, our meal was outstanding with a truly exceptional radicchio and broccolini salad, tuna tartare, my go to for comfort food: the Next Door Bolognese. Gus, our server was incredibly professional while managing to be engaging and personable at the same time - he is simply the best!
It was delicious and our server even brought out a treat with a candle for my friends birthday
Our server forgot to bring over extra wasabi and also one of our entrées, we had to remind her about the entrée.
Service was so great! I came in with my 6 year old son who loves sushi and they were so great to him!!
Joe is always awesome!
Yes and I would ask for Sarah as your server= she was fantastic.
We had a delightful meal. The food and the service were excellent. We hadn't been there in a while since we had a lot of out of town events, but were very very happy we had the opportunity to return.
Extremely reliable food, delicious sushi. Great selection of alcohols and fantastic service. One of my favorite restaurants in town!
food price was respectable, no problem paying that amount when the taste and portion size match. not here. the Tomohawk Ribeye tasted great but too much of the 33oz steak was the bone. It did not fill me up. Our server should have spent less time worrying about whether we were going to fill out the surveys (5 different times she reminded us) and more effort into making sure our drinks were not empty. twice we waited 10 minutes for a drink. (I had two drinks and my wife had one).
Next Door is our favorite restaurant and we love when we have Sarah as a server. She is very knowledgable of the menu and gives us great recommendations. The food is always outstanding and we love the way the menu changes to include seasonal ingredients and new preparations yet some of our favorite "go-to" apps and sashimi remain perfectly unchanged. This ensures that we will have a unique meal from the last time we came but are never disappointed. Our only complaint is that we miss the butterscotch creme brulee.
I had the salmon dish and it was excellent! This restaurant is upscale and trendy. The drinks were fabulous also. I love it here
Eileen was amazing!! She made our dinner such a lovely experience
After not having been to Next Door in many years, we went to give it a try again. The experience was very satisfying. Our server Gus was absolutely awesome. I've always said I wouldn't know how to be a good server, but I can definitely identify when it is done right. My dinner companion ordered the pork shank and I had the beef filet. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The meal was well paced, Gus topped off our wine regularly and checked in on our progress without being intrusive. We had a wonderful evening and have told our friends. We'll definitely share our experience with more. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
We always have an outstanding dinner when we dine here! The food is fantastic and the drinks are superb! Thank you as always !
Food was delicious, interesting and well presented. Our server Sara was amazing. Made my friend’s birthday very special.
I would recommend for appetizers and drinks but not for dinner. Very overpriced for the amount of food for dinner and service was very slow
Kyle was great! As usual, the food was outstanding! The new pork shank was out of this world!
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!
The menu was very limited and the food was average. I could see more sea food and steaks. Great potential under delivered.
