Food was cold
Bacon wrapped shrimp were terrible- bacon under cooked
Soufflé was undercooked

Used to be a go to restaurant. Now it is not

When we arrived at 7:15 for dinner, we were seated in the back room. No one else was seated in this area. The room was chilly, we asked it to be adjusted about 30 min after arrival - which they complied.

We were left alone for 10 min before anyone came to speak with us. By that time we knew everything we wanted to order and we placed the entire order at that time.

The appetizer came within 10 min, the salad delivered 25 min from ordering. The Main course 45 min after the initial order! We order the soufflé and waited another 25 min to receive an over cooked - the outside was burnt and didn’t taste that good. The inside of the soufflé was completely hollow! Never had one like that.

From the time we arrived to the time we left at 8:45pm we had been in the restaurant for 1 1/2 hours! We were not drinking, so this was a very extended time for two people.

The last two times we have booked, we have been disappointed- I’m guessing the chef owner is no longer cooking nor overseeing the food preparation as the quality of food is definitely slipping. We had decided to give Next Bistro one last chance, we won’t be returning!

Sorry to see such a good place slipping into this level of food. Our waiter was very nice, but the food quality was just not at the level it should be for this type of restaurant.

We eat here often and its always solid. This last Wednesday “Wine Wednesday”, was not good. Only wines offer by the glass were the same wines offered every night. However, the most disappointing was the food. We ordered 2 appetizers: Pear, Burrata & Serrano Ham and Crab tower. The Pear, Burrata & Serrano was good, the Crab tower was not edible. The waiter notice but never said anything just asked we’re we done and I said yes its not worth eating. The main course was good but couldn’t get the bad crab taste out of my mouth. My wife and I have never had this poor of service and food at Next. Hopefully it was just one bad night.

We had the Paella. We have had Paella several times in Spain, Portugal, Greece, on cruise ships, but this was our first time in the US. Your Paella was truly delicious, the flavors blended so well. The only reason We don’t give it a 5 is because the chicken was tough & difficult to swallow. May I recommend using Chicken thighs? They are juicier and very flavorful... please offer Paella again..

First. We love this place and so nice to see a packed parking lot! Food was great as always .... but, we didn’t have a reservation. The hostess said they were booked but we could eat at the bar. No problem. I wouldn’t say we were greeted but was somewhat met my a bartender who had no desire to be there. In fact, we decided to leave and maybe go next door.

I opened Opentable and what pops up is open reservations at Next Bistro ??? Wait the hostess said they were booked? I selected “book now” and it sent a confirmation. We walked back to the hostess and said we are here for our reservation ... and got seated right away 🤷‍♂️. Our waiter in back was pleasant and accommodating as usual. Food was very good, love the wine list ... only other comment was the lights need to be dimmed. The spot cans over the white linens make it too bright in my opinion. We like that it’s a cozy restaurant but the lights detract a little. Great spot .. so only take my comments as feedback

Had a nice meal. Lobster Risotto, Duck a l'orange, and escargot as an appetizer. Both entrees were wonderful, well seasoned meals. The escargot was exactly the way I grew up with and the way it would be in France.

Had a wonderful evening and food was delicious! The drinks were very good and appetizers (burnt ends) and the baked Brie was an excellent choice. Our entrees included the pork chop, scallops and salmon. All were cooked to perfection! Our waiter was very attentive and fun to talk with! We had a great time and would recommend to all.

This restaurant always has unique and satisfying meals and the wine list is the best in DFW. Appetizers were amazing, Elk, Pork chop were great, and the rum and whiskey cake were off the charts. We had the Altamura 2004 Cab, can't find that anywhere but a friends house. Simply great!

This is my 2nd time to Next Bistro. Really good both times. The first time I was with a group of six. This time just me and my husband. I didn’t love the table, right by a doorway and literally across from the door. It was a busy night though so can’t be too picky. We had a great waiter and the food was delicious. We both got the pear salad which is excellent and the sous vide duck, also good.

We had a group of 4 for Valentines dinner and we just went crazy with appetizers. Escargot, crispy tips and calamari! The ladies ordered the Crispy Duck and it was exquisite! The guys had Lobster Tail risotto and 3 cheese Pasta with Lobster tail. We ordered a gorgeous bottle of Bordeaux from Paris and it was just everything we needed to have warm bellies and tons of laughs! Thank you for a beautiful evening!

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Next Bistro, the exterior of the building isn’t representative of the interior , which is nicely decorated and well appointed.
The food and service were excellent.
I was impressed with the service of both the staff serving us, the young man busing the table was smartly dressed, well mannered and very professional,the waiter was equally as impressive.
When choosing the wine neither of my choices were available, however the waiter made an excellent recommendation that was priced lower than my original choices.
The presentation and taste of the food was first class.
I will certainly return to Next Bistro.

Went on Friday before Valentines Day. Excellent drinks and appetizers. Great main courses (I had the tuna and loved it). We expected it to be busy but we got seated in the back room 45 minutes ahead of our reservation. That room holds approx. 14 tables and when we sat down at 7pm there were 7 empty tables in that room. The front room and bar were full. Unfortunately the service we received was the worst we’ve ever had at a restaurant of any price range. We were a party of 2, went 30 minutes after our drinks were empty without any contact whatsoever, had to give our main course order to a different waiter, had to ask the bus boy to tell our waiter we needed to order an appetizer, and we were a full 1 hour and 55 minutes into the visit before we received our main course (after finally seeing our waiter and asking where the food was). We literally thought he went home for the weekend. After that, he tried to make amends and comp’d a dessert and wine refill, but by then we were pretty much done with the experience. We had never been before, so this is our only experience. The food was great, and we will go again one day, but we certainly will require a different waiter. We want them to succeed, because it can be a great restaurant.

Read a writeup in a local paper about this restaurant and was intrigued. Shared the review with my wife and she wanted to go that Friday. We made reservations and enjoyed a very special meal with seafood dishes cooked to perfection with unique touches. Very memorable and enjoyable. We will definitely return.
