    We had the blind tasting menu and it was delicious. We tried and enjoyed things that we would not have considered ordering. The 3 flights of wine that were paired with the menu were fantastic as well.

    Good meal but somewhat overpriced. We had a gift certificate but the main bill was over $200 and that only included 2 glasses of wine (no bottle). It is kind of a niche restaurant so I understand. As an example, 4 scallops for $34 to me is a bit high. I would recommend to a friend but would caution them about the pricing

    We had the chef’s menu with wine pairings. It was superb! Wonderful to be able to view the kitchen too. Our waiter was very attentive and explained each course, and a visit from Chef Blackie at the end of the evening topped it all off.

    Incredible experience with a beautiful ambience. The meal was outstanding and the food was spaced out appropriately so you don’t get full too quickly. The waiter was just lovely, I enjoyed how he explained each dish as he brought them to the table. 10/10 would definitely recommend and will go again!

    Dinner was great as usual. I had the cod dish and it was great. My fiance had the scallops. It was really good, But the variation from 4 months ago that had the heirloom carrot puree, edamame, bacon and pickled onion was absolute perfection. I ate that dish 4 months ago and I STILL talk about it. Also. That Baked Alaska dessert was incredible. I have never had it before and that first bite hit me like a tidal wave of flavour. Absolutely incredible. The espresso flavour and that berry sauce/ coulis cut into that sweetness enough to balance it out for me. Just.....incredible. Cant wait to go back and see what Chef comes up with "NeXt" ;)

    NeXT was ok. We expected not just a bit better, but a lot better. I have been here twice before and the food was top notch. The fact that I don't really remember any of the dishes in depth probably says a lot. We order the tasting menu. Nine dishes over 5 waves I believe. We ordered drinks and we said we were interested in the tasting menu. The drinks (two beers) took longer than it should have to arrived. I ordered wine and that came up almost before we had a chance to sip the beers. The risotto and mushrooms was pretty good with strong flavor. This fish at the end of the meal was quite dry. There was cauliflower in between that was sickeningly sweet. Overall, not the worse but expect better from a high end restaurant.

    Jake was a great server. My husband loved his porchetta. Said best ever. 😀 there was a wedding taking place and for some reason my reservation on open table put us in the bar area. I made the reservation over a month ago so I will have to take note of that next reservation. We felt removed from the dining experience and in the middle of the wedding activities.

    Our server was phenomenal, but it did not make up for the meal which was moderately good and not the wow we have come to expect from this establishment. We paid approximately $100/Head with drinks, coffee, dessert and tip included.

    Our server Jake was great…he explained the process, small plates that you share. I’m gluten free because I have celiac disease, he knew what I could and couldn’t eat. The rest of our party raved about the tempura battered cheese curds and the baquette with this fresh cheese to slather on top. Desserts were good! Overall a great experience and definitely we will go back.

    At the start, the waitress didn't ask what drink we wanted. We ordered the blind sharing menu consisting 9-course. We got our drink after the first two courses. After 4-course, the waitress told us the next she would be serving was soup (strange order). Then what she brought us were three main courses. After she got us desert, I asked her about the soup. She forgot about it. Really not impressed by the service! For the food, it was good in general. But the cod fish and soup were too salty.

    Meal was fun but was over 4 hours so lost some momentum. Person who took our reservation was quite rude and short over the phone. We had 1 less in our group due to a positive covid test and they still charged us the fee - 8/9 showed up- aware of the policy but do find it a bit irresponsible - will make sick people come out to avoid a fee! Waitress smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and didn’t really explain the blind tasting menu until we asked. Was also frustrated with the gift certificate we had Otherwise was very on top of all our needs and very accommodating. The food was amazing! one desert was not to my taste (ginger crème brulee) but was made perfectly- all other food even outside of my personal preference was soo tasty - will definitely eat here again.

    We had our small Holiday gathering at NeXT this year with no regrets. The atmosphere, food and service were all amazing! We all ordered the Blind Sharing meal. Lots of food, did not leave hungry. Got to try almost everything on the menu and extra items not on menu. No complaints other than a bit expensive.

    Celebrated my wife's birthday at Next with a special dinner. Overall, we were satisfied with the dining experience. The ambience was spot on for an intimate birthday celebration, the staff were great and most of the food we tried was wonderful. The evening would have been perfect had it not been for the duck confit. The cassoulet was tasty, but the duck was, let's say, not to my liking. The duck was over-cooked to the point that the meat was dry, tough and barely edible; it may have been re-heated a number of times. The Griswolds would have been impressed. The addition of a small coffee spoon in the dish, underneath the duck, was puzzling. Was it to help scoop up the cassoulet? Was it a garnish?
