    First impressions. Robust menu with good variety to please differing pallets. The halibut was just overcooked, but the accompanying dish was excellent. Seating is limited as this spot is popular. Add your preferences in the reservation details to avoid a table out in the open. Service was pleasant. Bit of a wait between appetizers and main, but was a Friday night too. Overall great experience and the price point was accurate for the value.

    Made reservations and was welcomed upon entry by a very polite gentleman. I unfortunately cannot remember his name but he was tall and had a moustache, he ended up being our waiter he was extremely attentive, kind, welcoming and professional. We ordered our drinks, 2 cocktails, they were both delicious also made by the man serving us. We then ordered an appetizer the Laos beef lettuce wraps, they were nice and refreshing. For our main’s we ordered the crispy chicken and lamb shank both dishes were absolutely delicious and the portion sizes and presentation were perfect. For dessert we had the caramelized banana mousse and these apple fritter sort of things, like stuffed donuts with a little ice cream. Both dishes were fantastic but I have to say the apple fritter things (apologies I don’t know the name) were incredible! A huge portion and so warm and delicious we loved everything but I would come back regularly for a cup of coffee and those apple fritters, those were nuts! Needless to say we had a really great time everyone working that night was pleasant and welcoming and our waiter was a great guy. Top notch, I would 100% recommend to others for sure. Thanks for the great evening.

    We have heard such amazing things for years about NeXT and had never had the opportunity to make it. We booked our brunch and it did not disappoint. Our server Annabelle was kind, funny and very attentive. The food was all delicious, so many different flavours and textures. We can’t believe we waited so long to go and can’t wait to go again!

    As usual, very tasty and well presented. Only negative comment was the rib eye was somewhat chewy. Not marbled at all Almost like it was sirloin, but still very tasty.

    This was our 2nd time dining there, and similarly to the first time, we were astounded by the food and atmosphere! Top notch, 100%. We did the blind sharing menu amongst 4 of us, and the idea while a little scary to those of us (I'm at the top of this list) of getting something "different", was exactly what the doctor ordered! Simply amazing, I highly recommend!

    Had a great time, they may want to put some form of soundproofing as there was a lot of echoing through the dining hall. Food was great, not the best I've had going there, but most of it was amazing minus 1 or 2 of the dishes that came out with the tasting thing. Whatever it's called.

    This was our third time doing the chef’s tasting menu, and it was just as delicious as we remember. We especially loved the spicy cauliflower, and the confit duck! We brought our parents for the first time and they really enjoyed themselves as well. We will definitely be back again!

    Our waiter was excellent. He tried his best to make our experience wonderful. Two of us ordered the rib steak. It had alot of gristle in the steak. For the price it was not worth it. I think they should change it to beef tenderloin. Teo had Chicken Schnitzel, which was OK. The Kapow Cauliflower was excellent - happily, since we couldn't understand what most of the menu was. Few if any vegetables on our dishes. My first glass of wine was only about about 3 onces for 17 dollars. I was very upset. The waiter did improve the amout for my 2nd glass. Over all I don't think we will return.

    Had the Chefs signature crispy fried chicken and sent it back. Covered in thick overly salty soy sauce. My wife had a salad coated in thick overbearing umami oil. The apple fritter dessert had way to much sugar and cinnamon. When fine dining you expect a chef to have nuance and artistry. Some do it better, some worse. This chef doesn't even come close.

    We've eaten at NeXT several times and the food and service is always EXCELLENT. Chef Blackie is an accomplished chef, an excellent host, and an astute business person. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is not cheap, so be prepared, but also be prepared to thrill your taste buds.

    Overall a 5-star experience. Our server, Annabel was great; knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed our food (tartar, duck, lamb shank, and apple dessert). My only small feedback: -The tartar portion was a little too big. -The flavour of the lamb meat itself was simple. The seasonings and sauces were delicious. Could the meat flavour be augmented by marinating it longer? I’m not a chef, but that’s my 2 cents. Overall great experience and we will be back.
