Service and drinks were outstanding. First four pieces of the crab roll had large crab shells, which was off putting to say the least. Honestly the worst rolled sushi I’ve ever had, I’d be embarrassed to send out, looks like it was done by a grade schooler, believe Stevie Wonder would have made a better effort. Disappointing because we had phenomenal service, but alas it will be a one and done with this restaurant. Thankfully we have an embarrassment of riches in our culinary scene that this won’t be missed.

What we thought would be a nice quiet meal turned into the loudest experience ever. Never sit in the little room next to the bar unless you want to loose your hearing!!!

A limited menu, perhaps due to our current social situation. However, all selections appear to lean in the direction of "new wave" preparation heavily influenced by Asian cuisine. Jalapeño is used is used in many (if not most) dishes making the selection limited for some palettes. Beautiful décor and atmosphere, extensive wine list and food that is well prepared and tasty (depending on what you order.) Expensive but delicious desserts.

Yes, but we have been here before and this time something seemed less appealing, the food was ok, presentation was not what it used to be, also we did not care for the barcode menu thing in the center of the table, we asked for normal menus, the bar code thing was rather low class kind of like you would expect at a fast food burger place.

Also we could hardly hear the waiter behind his mask, he actually asked us if we had had the covid vaccine, we kept waiting for him to ask what we would like to drink until I finally asked him if we could give drink orders. The four of us were stuffed in a very tight booth, I am little and yet I had to sit on the end with my legs to the side.

There were four of us and we told him we wanted to split the bill two ways, fine, he came back with something for my husband to sign and our friend, however, our friend was charged the entire bill whereas my husband was charged half as we had requested,. We called the waiter back and he was kind and very nice and corrected it. The food was ok but not as good as I remembered it, overall not a bad experience, but not great.

As usual, we had a fantastic dining experience. Although a tad disappointed that there were no specials, our entrees were delicious. As were our sushi appetizers. Our server, Jade, was right on top of everything. She was courteous, friendly and helpful with all our questions. It was one of the cold evenings we've had recently and there was a roaring fire right near our booth, which really added the ambiance. We shall return again soon.

Next Door is now a Sushi Restaurant with a very limited regular menu. Wine list is very overpriced with few US wines by the glass. Hostess very impressed with herself and not in the least bit welcoming.
I prefer the original menu with several good entree choices and specials.
I will not be returning to this restaurant unless the venue changed

Had an 845 reservation. Was rushed to order our meal by 9pm by a very pushy waiter. We also could not order a drink before our appetizer ???? Which our apps came out before our drinks- did not appreciate that. There was maybe 5 tables occupied in the whole restaurant. To top it off, I was rushed to order and served raw and cold sea bass. So I was rushed to order, and my food was rushed to be cooked. By the time the terrible server came back, kitchen was completely closed up (at 920pm) and I couldn’t order another meal if I wanted to. The manager did come to our table to apologize, but honestly didn’t have any excuse or reason for the awful service. Terrible experience.

Wasn't quite what we expected. Although the ambiance and service were very good, there wasn't a lot of food choices. The drink selection was limited as well. No desert offerings on the menu although we were verbally given a choice of two after we ate. For 3 of us the bill came to $180.00 (with only one glass of wine, no other drinks); hardly worth the time and meal.
