I love this place! The food is delicious, the service is great, and it is by far the best food in the nieghborhood. All of the sushi is wonderful, better than much more expensive places downtown. The staff is nice and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone!

My wife ordered the turkey meat ball w/pasta and meatballs were 70% filler (i.e. cardboard). When she complained, they said they would take it off the bill. When we got the bill, they took $2 off the price of the entree. They then argued that the price of the pasta ordered itself was $2 less. We had to go back and forth several times and they only took another few dollars off. Any decent place would have comped the entree. This place is below average food at high prices due to lack of quality places in the area, something quite unfortunate about this neighborhood. I will surely not recommend this place and will never go back.

I live in the neighborhood and I used to live on the UWS. I have a bigger apartment, but I suffer from food choices. Next Door has okay sushi (not as good as a mediocre sushi place in central/downtown Manhattan). I didn't like their non-sushi dishes. I wish there was a great restaurant in this area, or they lowered the prices. I can buy double the food downtown than here and it's better. I might have to move out of this hood if it continues!

Next Door looks appealing from the outside, and given that I live a block away, I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately, there is nothing to recommend at all about this place. The food is consistently bland, and the prices are similar to restaurants downtown. But you don't get anything near the value and taste than you would elsewhere. Basically Next Door suffers from the same problems most of the restaurants in Washington Heights suffer from, and especially those on West 187th St (107 West, Bleu Evolutions, Next Door) - the food is mediocre, the service subpar, and the menus are all the same. I've been there three times now, and wont go back - until this underserved area gets a few decent restaurants, I'll have to keep taking the train to the UWS to get decent food.

I always enjoy eating at Next Door. One reviewer commented that the food was bland, and while in the case of some dishes I could understand how one might feel that way, it all depends on what you order. I had the tequila lime grilled chicken salad and it was incredible. The chicken was full of complex flavor and was very healthily perpared. The calimari appetizer was delicious and flavorful as well. One thing I don't care for is the huge window. I'm just a private person and I don't like everyone staring in on me, nor do I want to stare out at them, which is hard to avoid when the entire wall facing the street is made of glass.

Well prepared food and wide variety of choices. Delicious: tuna sashima with guacamole and green apple appetizer; turkey meatballs cappellini; mushroom ravioli w/ shrimp, salads. Surprisingly fresh sushi and hand rolls for a non-Asian restaurant all tasty and beautifully presented though not terribly authentic...but that's okay. Wait service is very good. And attentive: tried to order a non-alcoholic beer but they didn't carry it; I went two weeks later and the beer had been added to the menu. Very nice. Prices are in line with NYC but high for the neighborhood. Though food quality is superior to any other restaurant on the 187th St. strip so it's worth it. Very clean, relaxed atmosphere.

Love this place! The best restaurant by far in Washington Heights. Best dishes: Turkey Meatloaf, Balsamic Chicken, Crispy Kani Roll and the Cheeseburgers. Great food, reasonable price, friendly staff...my husband and I eat at Next Door at least once a week. The menu is so diverse one can always find a delicious and healthy meal - no matter if they are in the mood for sushi, beef, chicken or pasta.
