Super bon mais au retour de la soirée ma copine à vomi sur l'autoroute , mais sinon tout était bon l'ambiance, nourriture, les serveur
Our favorite place to celebrate anything. The blind table is outstanding.
We recently held our wedding at Next, the venue was perfect for the size of our attendees, we had nothing but positive feedback from our guests about the atmosphere and their meals. The wait staff was prompt and attentive to our needs. I was looking for something simple, intimate and elegant...they knocked it out of the park! Jillian took care of all the details and made positive suggestions when we needed direction about choices. Thank you for a wonderful memorable day! More...
Always special. The variety of dishes is what makes this such an enjoyable night outWe had 5 dishes and were gunite satisfied.

The blind tasting was like your tastebuds were being bombarded by amazing experiences time after time until your belly can't take it anymore. Just an amazing experience!!!
Great food, excellent service.
Great food. Everything I had was amazing.
Our evening started with excellent service, the waiters were awesome and super professional but fun at the same time. Chef Blackie came and chatted with us, the food was great and everyone had a superb time. 10/10 would recommend
Maybe my expectations were too high but food wasn’t fantastic, it was just good
Nice service and good
Excellent venue..just had daughter's wedding this weekend and food and service was amazing..
Went here for a wedding. Very nice place. Can't help but shake that it reminded me too much of a funeral home (maybe I've just been to more funerals than weddings). The staff were great, incredible food. Drinks are a little pricey. More...
Fun brunch. Every two ppl get a platter to share from with lots of items
Food was good. Service was excellent.
Great service. Great room. Good food. Disappointed in the dessert pops and the shumai. Everything else was outstanding. Will go back.
Food was delicious and the share-plates concept is fun & different. Found the prices to be reasonable especially given the high quality of the food. Open concept kitchen is also fun to watch.Our service though was not very good, the server was scattered & distracted, not at the level I would have expected for this restaurant. More...
Amazing food fair prices considering quality
Amazing food and flavours. Vegetarian/pescetarian friendly. Great, friendly service.
SO much fun! Enjoyed trying new things and was surprised to enjoy new and wickedly-presented things! Worth the price for sure.
Just came back from an amazing Mothers Day brunch! The choices were unbelievable, and tasted even better than they looked! Excellent job, thanks for all your hard work! More...
Probably my favorite Easter Brunch in the city. Everything was fresh and flavorful.
Awesome please! Outstanding food, fast service!
We tried the brunch board and OMG!! It is definitely an experience you gotta do at least once (and it’ll make you come back for more! The selection is tastefully done, with each item an explosion of flavours and textures. We thank our friends sincerely for taking us here because it was an unforgettable meal ❤️ More...
Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and atmosphere, service is very nice. Food presentation is beyond expectations
This was my first visit and my dinner guest recommended the 9 course chef’s meal and it was amazing! It took just under 3.5 hours for us to make it through everything but the relaxed but polished ambiance, service which kept our glasses full and our plates cleared and the Friday night bustle that wasn’t too loud or too hectic despite being busy, made for a great evening! Highly recommend and will go again! More...
We've only been a few times because it is a luxury for us, but oh, what a luxury it is! We've experienced brunch and dinner. I use the word "experienced" purposefully because it is truly that. The food evokes conversation and plate sharing between even the most apprehensive diners (my hubby!). Cannot wait for our next visit :) More...
NeXT is making its mark as a high end restaurant for foodies. The new menu is phenomenal, with such varieties and interesting recipes. Who knew Cauliflower could be so much better, or that eggplant could be elevated with a cream sauce and prawns. Truly remarkable meal, and as a birthday party this made the man of the hour feel very special with a complimentary dessert. The service was so friendly and warm, we remarked how great our waitress was several times. More...
Wonderful dining experience. Enjoyed ever bite. Very pleasant environment and accommodating staff.
Very different menu ..service n food excellent
Amazing food and great service.
Excellent food and service
Food is fabulous!!
Great food and you know that the owner/headcook/everything guy clearly put his heart into his food. Do yourself a favour and take your loved one out there folks.
Thoroughly enjoyed our brunch board at NeXt. Delicious and flavourful, a great experience to share with a friend. Looking forward to returning.
Great ambience for the perfect reception.
A fantastic experience for my girlfriend's birthday. Try the 7-course blind tasting menu for a unique and memorable experience...
Quality Food and Service are delivered consistently. We have had 3-4 large office events here. I look forward to my next experience.
Everything I had was very good. Not inexpensive though
Food was awesome and setting is great for small events or weddings. Parking can get full fast though so you might need to park on the street if it is a big event. Other than date the place is well kept and super clean. More...
Really good food. We had a baby shower, and every one enjoyed the different plates. From the soup to the salad and the main dish. It was not your regular meal. Special recipe and spices used. Enjoyed it a lot. The chicken plate was the best. The vegetarian option was good but the portion was small. More...
Lovely experience and food, we got the chef special and it was really good. I can't be sure about the actual cost for them to make it, but $70 seemed like a bit much for the food we got. However, the experience arguably made it worth the price. There is something oddly gratifying about not knowing your next meal. I can't speak about the other parts of the menu but based off what I saw and smelled I'm guessing they are really good! More...
Really great food. The price is on the high side for the area but the food and service are well worth it.
Great staff. Great food. Bao buns are delicious!
Beautiful atmosphere with amazing food. The staff were super helpful as well. Definitely a perfect place for groups.
Good food good service
Great food, awesome environment, friendly staff Food portion is small. We ordered five different plates. Veal schnitzel was incredible.
Excellent tapas restaurant, went with the blind tasting and did not regret it! I will be back
If you are looking for high quality great tasting food over quantity then this is an excellent choice.
The food was nice while the services were great.
Excellent food! The Valentine's day menu is huge! Multiple small portions of delicious appetizers, mains and deserts for 2, we were too stuffed at the end (about 12 different plates). Overall great food, wine and service. More...
Great atmosphere for a private wedding. The food was excellent and the waiting staff were great.I am giving 4 stars as the drinks are a bit overpriced, and the washrooms would need to be tended to more often - empty soap and overflowing trash with paper (this was back when we were there in October; perhaps some changes have been made since then). More...
Food and service was great. There was a misunderstanding with a gift certificate we were told we can use on Valentine’s day. Owner called us a couple days after and gave us a full refund for the miscommunication. We greatly appreciate the understanding from the owner! More...
Expect to get what you spend here. If you view the menus, which are posted on their website, you will be coming back time and time again. Expect to spend two hours here for a dinner tasting menu. The brunch is also excellent, however it's quite the indulgence. Finally consider if you are hosting a turkey dinner consider letting do these guys do you cooking. You will not be disappointed. More...
The service was impeccable, and the food was great as well. NeXT serves sharing plates, so the idea is to get some of everything and distribute among everyone at your table. Optionally, you can order a blind taste test and leave your meal to the chef. In our case, we requested a vegetarian meal, which the chef was more than happy to accommodate. We got a 4 course meal, all of which was delicious. Would go again, but probably during brunch. More...
Loved the atmosphere and of course the food was fantastic. Service was attentive and friendly, especially when you've got Michael Blackie dropping off a few dishes to the table. Great selection of dishes, full of flavor and beautiful presentation. Wish I had taken pictures but I was too busy enjoying the experience. More...
Just had the weekend brunch and it was phenominal.
Was at a wedding here, very good food and service.
We have visited this restaurant several times and have enjoyed it every time. It has a very nice ambiance which is casual but refined. The mostly small plates menu is creative and delicious. We have tried most of it but the steamed bao buns with pork belly and the fogo cod are favourites. This restaurant is highly recommended. More...
Handmade tapas menu!
A very popular destination in Stittsville. Lots of weddings and check out their catering.
Dinner here is not cheap, but the food and service are among the best in Ottawa. Highly recommended.
Amazing food, blind tasting for dinner blew my mind, had the brunch boards also very good.
Amazing food, great portions. Wonderful service.
Awesome. Everything about was great. Honestly, it really was. We had the blind 9 course sharing plates.
My wife and I’s favorite restaurant. Try the share platter.
Great service, decent food, nice atmosphere.
Very nice venue and food
The service and quality of food here is always top notch. We always do the blind sharing menu, and it never disappoints.
Amazing place...amazing service, delicious food and the most wonderful people who own it. Support goodness!
Great food and different types of food. Highly recommend the Sharring Menu, which is Chef's choice. Well worth it and absolutely delicious.
Nice atmosphere and great food. I only gave 4 stars because they have fois gras on the menu (Google how that is made )
Excellent endroit chic, super décor! Excellent service, la nourriture "wow"...sauf prendre une pause entre chaque commande! Quantité/prix wow un endroit à essayer en tête à tête, je cpmprent le nom de resto "NEXT" pas le choix d'y retouner pour essayer autres choses dans le menu!! More...
You want a gastronomic adventure! You love to have a taste of exotic fine cuisine. This is THE PLACE to go. Excellent food. Excellent service. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Don't worry about those special/strange names on the menu. Ask any waiter or even the owner/the chef Michael Blackie and you will be entitled to the full explanation of each plate and how they were created. Strongly recommended to all fine food lovers out there. You won't be disappointed. More...
The food at Next is always amazing! We always do the blind tasting and we are never disappointed. The watermelon salad is always a favourite of ours but this time we were blown away by tempura cauliflower, just amazing! We can’t say enough good things about Next and Chef Blackie! More...
Great food, great staff, great atmosphere!
There for a wedding reception, food was good and service pleasant.
Came here for brunch and excellent meal and great service. The only so-so items were the croissants and pastries. Having lived in France for 2 years I am a bit particular about them and the ones here are not worth the calories. To do things properly you need to use lots of butter and proof it for 3 days so just leave it off and do a variety of good bread or rolls. More...
Always a great experience and great food
Brilliant journey through culture and cuisine. Get the tasting menu. Service and attention is A+.
Food was delicious. Felt kinda scammed by the 'blind' tasting menu. Basically was everything off the a la carte menu, except for one salad. Will choose off the menu next time! More...
Food is very good. Service was excellent
Amazing food! & Great service from staff and owner! Family and I did turkey to go!!
Amazing savoury food with great service!
Absolutely incredible. My spouse and I have eaten here a number of times. We attended a wedding there, Sunday morning brunch and a number of evening occasions. Chef Blackie and his staff are very personable as well as the meals are something you won’t get at other restaurants. The food is exquisite and atmosphere in the restaurant very relaxing. We enjoy just getting a number of appetizers as a complete meal; even though all of the main dishes are awesome which they change the menu so you can experience something new every so often. More...
Made our wedding reception the perfect cap to a perfect day. Amazing food and great staff.
Try the blind dinner!!! Everything was so good. Fast, knowledgeable staff. I highly reccomend this place
Great food, great atmosphere. Our waitress was a little rude, but other than that I was impressed. Would go again.
Very unconventional but delicious items on the menu. Far from boring.
Delicious food preparation and good service. We tried the Guajillo prawns and short rib. Moreover, the ambience was just perfect to celebrate a special occasion here.
Was there for their famous Sunday brunch board. The board features savoury and sweet. Most in our party felt there was more sweet than they needed for breakfast /brunch. Next is a large dining room so lacks a warm and cozy ambiance. More...
Amazing experience. Food was incredible, staff were friendly and professional, while continuing to have humour and making the experience fun. Highly recommended and affordable for a high-end restaurant. This restaurant is not averse to risk-taking and executes it's ideas very well. Well worth trying, and worth coming back too. More...
Been there for 5 times，3times for brunch and 2 times for dinner……although the quality of food is a little bit downhill but the service is still excellent! At the first time, I forgot tell the waiter I’m “lactose intolerant” though they asked if I have any food allergy…at the end I diarrheaed and the waiter waived our bill cause they not only want us have a good lunch and also want us healthy and happy. More...
Excellent food, decor and space. The staff were phenominally accommodating and friendly. The bartender makes a mean Caesar. Great time.
My wife and I went for Sunday brunch and thoroughly enjoyed “The Board”, which is seventeen beautifully prepared hot and cold items served on a log wooden board that spans the table. Visually, the meal is stunning, and the flavours live up to the presentation. We had a small glitch with a Next gift card we were paying with, but the manager promptly took care of it. Excellent meal overall. More...
This place is a gem!! We had a party of 8, the atmosphere was just right, we could see the kitchen and all of the serving staff busily serving the patrons. We felt at home right away. Mike defiantly represents his establishment well, you can see his dedication in every dish. I would recommend this place without hesitation!!! Also, we were stuffed!!!! Prices are fair. More...
Fantastic as always. Great food, great service. Wonderful balance of high-end yet comfortable.
Very good food and great service. But leaves you with a huge hole in your wallet.... Not the kind of place you can go to often, once a year kinda of spot
Great Food in a romantic setting.
Good brunch, but a little far if you don't have a car and/or coming from Gatineau. Brunch was on point, it's no surprise it has such a great rating.
Amazing experience.my family went there and we had the chef's choice option near th bottom of the menu. They brought out 9 different dishes. It was so nice! You gotta go!
The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The waiter we had was extremely attentive as well and explained each dish as it came. We did the blind tasting menu, which I'd recommended doing. More...
Excellent food and menu.
3 Chefs 1 Night - top class gastronomic experience.
Had a fantastic time here. We had a group of 16 and the service and food were top shelf.
Another wonderful meal... Thx chef Blackie
Nice place, but very expensive.
Le brunch du dimanche est excellent !!! La présentation est originale et l'ambiance est festive. J'y retournerai certainement :)
I wasn’t a fan of the Tamales, but everything else I tried was great.
Great sharing plates, great quality would recommend
We went to have dinner tonight and the whole experience had been wonderful! The food is delicious with rich and creative flavors!And we love the share everything style. More...
Went here tonight for our anniversary dinner. This is our second time at NeXT and both times we enjoyed the great food, friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. It was a full house tonight but still felt like we had our own little space to enjoy a quiet dinner. We ordered the Chef’s Blind Tasting Menu tonight and every single one was exceptional with the exception of the Roast Beef dish. We found the jus in the Roast Beef dish a tad bit salty for our palette. The waitress did inquire about dietary restrictions at the start and we failed to inform her that we generally use less salt in our diet. Perhaps if we mentioned it, this would not have been an issue for us. There were 9 dishes in total and while the portions may look small for two people, we were stuffed at the end of the 9 dishes. Overall, it was a fantastic meal and we hope to return again to try the “3 Chefs 1 Dinner” special event in the future. More...
Our first impression was not good. We arrived without reservations on a Sunday morning. The 2 young women hostesses said to each other "they're walk-ins" as if we were an inconvenience by not having a reservation. They found us seats and then our impression changed. The waiting staff was great and the food was outstanding. The Sunday brunch plate for 2 isn't cheap but it's delicious. We'll go back for sure. More...
Amazing food! Great flavors! Friendly staff!
Excellent food and service, loved the duck (best I ever had, ever!) and cheese curds!
The food is wonderful (if a bit of the pricey side). The restaurant is open concept so be prepared for some noise. The core idea of sharing meals is quite refreshing.
Best food in town
Highly recommend it. Great food and service.
Went here as a group of 4 people, and we ordered the blind tasting plus two bottles of wine. Truly delicious food and excellent variety of wines. The Fogo Island shrimp was outstanding, as was the brisket and the dessert tray. Chef Blackie also took the time to sit with us and talk for around one hour which was a nice also. The service was top-notch. everything was looked after, wine and water refills and plates. servers were knowledgeable about the food and wines. A nice touch is that they take the bottle of wine off the table and refill it for you as needed. Definitely worth it's five star rating. More...
We have been here three or four times. We have enjoyed each occasion. The prices aren't cheap, but the attention to detail with each dish makes up for it. I can't comment on specific dishes as they change from time to time...I would say that I was never a fan of Blackie's chicken...seemed to crisp and odd....which is strange because it is named after the owner....generally, however I have enjoyed most of the food we have tried. Their mother's day extravaganza is pretty decent compared to most e have experienced. More...
Great restaurant and chefs , was really good! Would recommend visiting. Defiantly will be going back
Fantastic food, great atmosphere. I'm a fan of General Tao's chicken in general, but the chef's take on it here is fantastic. The desert tray, split between 3 people, is also a really nice finisher to a good night. More...
Excellent food and fantastic atmosphere
Amazing meal with amazing service. We were there for a 50th wedding anniversary for good friends and NEXT did not disappoint. The 4 of us decided to do the 8 course Blind Sharing for $65 a person and it was worth every penny. Dale, our waiter, was great. Very attentive without overdoing it and had a great sense of humour. Truly a great restaurant. Bravo Michael Blackie! More...
Great food, great service, great atmosphere
Excellent food and service!
Not cheap but really good food. Interesting presentation.
It's our new family favorite! Personally greeted by Blackie, took us to a quieter corner sincevwe have 2 kids and one seems like to go crazy any minute lol. Amazing food, great service!
Had an absolutely incredible experience at Next. We were greeted immediately and was offered complimentary champagne as we waited for our table. We had the Blind Menu and was blown away by the food as he took consideration to our food sensitivities. Cannot say more wonderful things about this restaurant other than we will be back in the future. Thanks for a wonderful evening and made my birthday spectacular. More...
Excellent meal. Highly recommended the chef's choice sharing meal.
BEST brunch ever! We came her for my birthday and omg was I plesently suprised. We had the brunch board and although the price may set u back like "oooo it's $30 per person" just listen, 17 DISHES, 17!!!! we could not even finish it. They were super kind about substituting items with nuts and fish, as my partner is allergic, with something else, complimented with excellent service and amazing food worth every $$$, so go big and do it !!! More...
Absolutely amazing brunch! Was extremely happy. I have nut and seafood allergy was very accommodating and even switched some things out for food I can eat. Will be back for sure.
Wow fantastic food and great service
Ali Abbas Real Estate Group
We loved the new sampler blind tasting menu, well worth breaking your diet for lol service always top notch, all servers have been amazing and they actually remember you and you get to know their life and they remember stories shared. By far the best fine dining in ottawa. More...
Amazing food.. upscale experience.. worth the dining
Excellent service and staff.Our waitress was very informative about the dishes.And the chef actually came to our table to talk about the food that they serve afterwards. Not your normal dining experience.
Food is AMAZING! Second time being there.... first time was great but seems like it will keep exceeding your expectations. The ingredients that they use together work so well and make the taste of each bite delicious. Plus portions sizes are more then you would expect for an upscale restaurant... please don't change that. . Service was excellent as well. We are looking forward to going back soon. We are making it our new go to date night dinner! A must try for all!!! My boyfriend also said it was the best meal he's ever had... ☺ More...
Blackie’s chicken was delicious!
Tasting menu with an 8 course meal was fantastic.
The food is so tasty and wonderful, the presentation so different and exciting. Great service too! We've been twice : once for a Thanksgiving dinner and today for brunch. Both were awesome.
From the warm greeting upon entering NeXT to the superb service, it was an incredible experience. We choose the Blind Sharing Menu (Chef's choice) with 4 flights of wine (again, Chef's choice). The 8-course meal (in 4 waves) went beyond our expectations with the wine pairings. We look forward to our NeXT experience! More...
Always a great experience
Another great night at NeXT. We've always had great food at NeXT. Tonight was over the top. The food (as per normal) was amazing but the service was superb. The manager was also our server, and he managed to get our son to try food in a group for the flavour experience and he was pleasantly surprised -- amazing. We've been to NeXT a number of time and the food is always great, but tonight our server's descriptions of some of the dishes made us try some food we likely wouldn't have otherwise, and we were pleasantly surprised with the veal schnitzel. With food like this, and with personal service like we had tonight -- we'll definitely be back. Michael, you have a great manager, he is a definite asset to your restaurant! More...
The food was amazing and we loved the attention Chef Blackie gave to each of the diners. He seems genuinely proud of his staff and the experience they provide guests.
High end, great service
Amazing staff! Amazing food!
Amazing food. Have had 2 wedding meals here and they were both awesome!
It is well worth the drive to Stittsville! The Sunday Brunch board is the most diversified I have experienced. The flavours and textures were exciting on their own, however, if you choose to add their maple sriracha sauce to anything; well it just tweaked the item.The atmosphere left you wondering in which city you were in. You could be in Montreal or Toronto or New York. Combine that with the efficient and knowledgeable staff in their unique and locally created aprons: it truly felt like a mini escape. I will definitely return with my group: Ottawa Dinner Club.ca More...
Great food and service.
The food and service at NeXT was great but for the price we expected something a bit more unique/different. Can't recall specifically what we ordered but I know we got a wide variety and everything turned out to be very good. Nice interior and atmosphere as well, great for date nights. More...
Absolutely loved NeXt - the food, the service, the decor - all exquisite. We shared 5 plates - the Shrooms on Toast, Humbolt squid, Blackie's crispy chicken, Shank the Lamb, and the Dark and Stormy Pork Belly (and the local Silver Fox beer). Each dish had wonderful and layered tastes, so there was a different experience with each bite. The presentation was creative and the descriptions by the owner helpful and interesting. A great evening and worth a return. More...
We had brunch there and it was pretty good. The price is $30 per person with many types of creative food. It’s recommended to try.
Highly recommend this restaurant. The food and service is excellent. It can be a bit of drive for those living downtown or east Ottawa but it is worth it.
We just had our wedding at NeXT this past weekend, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The food was amazing, the decor was beautiful, and our event coordinator (Jillian) ensured that the whole process went really smoothly. We & our guests had a great time. Thanks so much! More...
Went with friends for my birthday. We did Sunday brunch, couldn't move for hours. The food was awesome and just had to try everything. The concept is quite original and refreshing in Ottawa. Will be back to try the dinner menu. More...
Fantastic food and great service. My wife and I went last weekend, brought family from out of town last night and just chose NeXT as our new go-to restaurant in Kanata. Good vegetarian fare as well for those interested. More...
If you go do the chef's menu it's always changing and always sooooo good. Also the wine pairing is a nice touch.
We are definitely going back as I think this place has potential to be worthy of 5 stars.Service was friendly but slow and not super attentive. Given that the restaurant was half full, I was less than thrilled with the speed at which we ordered and received our drinks. We ordered drinks as brunch arrived, and I ended up wondering if they would arrive before we asked for our cheque.As for the brunch board, it was novel and fun. But the tasting format meant that, even starting with the hot food, by the time I made my way to the squid, it was pretty cold. But that was forgivable. Where I was less impressed was with the desserts. The chocolate mousse absolutely had not set before it was served. It was like gloppy chocolate milk. The creme brulee consistency was also..... less than desirable.All in all, the brunch board experience is fun. But all my kingdom for a sweet selection that ends the meal on a purposeful and well executed high note. More...
Food is, without doubt, fantastic. The venue is lacking atmosphere in the main area. Has a very clinical feel to it. I would not let this put you off as the food more than makes up for it.
What a privilege to eat at a restaurant like this. The food was off the chart. This is a place that truly cares about their product. I’m looking forward to another visit to try other items on their menu. More...
What an amazing restaurant! It is definitely a little pricier, I'd say about $60-70 per person- but considering the quality, definitely fair. The food was made to perfection, perfect combination of ingredients and unlike most fancy places with very small portions, menu items were normal sized. I recommend getting reservations as it is pretty busy. Thank you for the service and great atmosphere. I will definitely be back! More...
I spent my birthday here this year. It is my first experience of the restaurant, so I took the blind sharing menu, accompanied with the wine list. The foods are great. The duck leg conflict is my favorite. 推荐给不是中餐胃的小伙伴。第一次建议点Blind sharing menu. 每人chief choice的七道菜加三个甜品。一人份70刀，两个人起点。想配酒单的话酒是三十刀，给配四杯酒。菜量偏多，主菜一般吃不完。单点的话个人最喜欢鸭腿。缺点是地点太太太太远了。跟价位比起来的话，服务一般般。我们桌的小姐姐菜品介绍都背不熟 。不知道是不是刚好碰到新人。 态度没问题很nice More...
Food is excellent; high quality and tasty. Plates are ample to share between 2 people, sufficient to share with 3 but not 4 people. Staff friendly and helpful. Expensive. Best to go during the week when they are less busy. More...
Great find! AmaZing high quality and creative food. Had the tasters menu and was delicious and tons of food. We were so stuffed we had to take the dessert and part of our entrees home. They allow you to bring your own wine with a small corkage fee.Will definitely return. More...
Perfeft place for special occasion dinner or a lunch with colleagues. We got shared full course menu and it was more then enough to enjoy meal variety and wonderful quality!
Food was amazing. It is a bit pricey but you get your money's worth. The 8 course blind menu is a lot of fun.
Incredible food, outstanding service, beautiful restaurant! Very creative menu. Well worth the visit.
This restaurant was unbelievable!!!! We went just last Saturday and tried s variety of items and literally everything was FANTASTIC! The chef was also walking around stopping by tables and introduced himself which was very cool! He is very inventive and unique in the food he makes! There is no way we will not be back! More...
The food and service are consistently tremendous. We've been there twice for dinner and once for brunch and haven't been disappointed.
Trendy restaurant, good food, but service is a little slow for lunch.
Did the Chef choice 7 course meal. Was amazing. Very good variety in the servings and the service was excellent.
In a word, phenomenal. Our entire party was blown away with our experience. We did the blind menu, everyone was impressed. For those of us that are big eaters, I left full and smiling. Highly recommend. More...
We had our office Christmas party at NeXT. This was our first visit to NeXT and the experience was fantastic! The service, food, and atmosphere was perfect. Meeting Chef Blackie in person was a bonus! NeXT is being highly recommended to our friends, family and anyone we know. Thank you again for a wonderful evening. More...
Amazing, consistently high quality food and service
Great food. I'm going back and will probably keep going back. A friend from my office just went. Loved it as well. We generally think it's one of the best, if not the best, food in Ottawa.
Went for a wedding, beautiful venue and great food
Great food and great service. Chef Blackie is outstanding and the dishes that he creates are amazing. The best restaurant in the Ottawa area... eat here.
Simply Amazing!! My husband and I went to NeXT for dinner for a birthday celebration. It was our first time there, and we had the 8 course blind tasting menu and the wine pairing, to try as many dishes as possible. Absolutely delicious and superb! Each dish was truly divine, we couldn't have asked for anything better. The staff were all wonderful, it was a fantastic experience and evening. We will definitely return, and highly recommend this restaurant. More...
A lovely place with spectacular food. We braved the Mystery Sharing Board and loved all seven (!) courses. It was a real treat to have Chef Blackie present and describe the courses for us!
Great service. Very pleased.
Great for foodies. I have had the pleasure eating at NeXT five times and never been disappointed. I look forward tasting the menu for the changing seasons.The chef makes frequent visits to the dining area to meet the customers. Very friendly, pleasant and likeable. You can tell it is his pride and joy.The menu and drinks are very reasonably priced.The staff polite and attentive. You will enjoy your visit. More...
A wonderful restaurant, with a wide selection of choices for whatever your taste buds desire. There truly is something for everything on the menu. Our latest visit the kitchen was quite slow (nowhere near as speedy as they normally are), but our server was very apologetic, even offering us a complimentary glass of wine and dessert, unprompted. More...
Great food. Amazing service and hospitality generally.
NeXT never disappoints. The service, the food, the cocktails... all top-notch. Highly recommend to all!
Hands down best meal I've ever had. Did the blind tasting menu and everything was amazing! Chef and atmosphere were awesome!! Can't wait to go back!
Visited with my family and we were all very please with the professionalism and pleasantry of Gillian .I recommend this place to all who wants to enjoy a great meal hospitality
Had the Blind Sharing Menu which they tailored to our group's preferences of no seafood and no raw meat. Food was excellent!
Food was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Anything with mesquite smoked feta is a must!
the food was awesome. they have a variety of good food.
Another "wow!" evening at NeXT with friends. Every bite was a culinary adventure, and a delight to the taste buds. Sauces and condiments available to take home! Can't wait for our next experience... a real treat. More...
Had the 8 course special. Excellent. Not cheap but well worth it.
Great date night. Did blind sharing dinner. Felt like VIP with chef Blackie delivering many of our courses personally and describing what is in the dish. Excellent atmosphere and very enjoyable time had. More...
Chef Blackie and his team never disappoint!
Went to Next on Sunday evening and although I expected a great meal my expectations were far exceeded. The tuna sashimi was exquisite and the lamb shank with applewood mashed potatoes was heavenly. The service was impeccable as always, by pure chance we always have had the same server and Sunday through Tuesday is bring your own wine so we had a great meal with a bottle of wine at a very reasonable price. More...
Exceptional food. Big portions. Worth every minute.
What can I say they are amazing and the service was amazing me and my husband new restaurant to go to and recommend it very highly
Thank you NeXT for making our brunch wedding amazing! The food was top notch and the staff are awesome!
Amazing food every time we go! Blackie’s chicken is a staple and a must try
good food with quiet environment
Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, great staff
Brunch boards - it's basically breakfast tapas. Lots of small servings for sharing. Very high quality and delicious. A mixture of familiar and more unusual foods. Includes dessert. No one leaves hungry. More...
Treat yourself and experience the chef's selection. Skip lunch if you are coming dinner as you will be well fed. The service is great too, with knowledgeable staff who introduce each course.
The most amazing, fresh food ever!

Great place attended a wedding. Friendly staff great food and service
Very delicious multi course meal, service was very friendly
Amazing... Loved it, great food and service
Every dish was an explosion and flavour!
Best steak I've ever had.
It is an excellent restaurant.
Delicious food! We had the blind tasting menu and absolutely loved it. The staff was very friendly, especially the hostess.
The food was absolutely delicious and all meals were presented beautiful. Also the place itself is really nice and the staff was very friendly. We went on Valentine's day for a 10 course pre-set meal and the only downside was the waiting period between the meals, it took 1 hour to get the main meal and 40 mins to get another course before the main meal. I would definitely recommend this place on a regular night but probably not for pre-set course meal night. More...
I was attending wedding, and it was my first time there. I really like the place, service and their food.
Good food and atmosphere
The best way for me to describe this restaurant is that it's unique. I'm not sure what cuisine to categorize the menu offered, but they offer a nice variety of unique options. They seems to offer quite a few vegetarian dishes that were even very appealing for a non-vegetarian. My favorite items from the menu were the tempura cheese curds, shrooms on toast, and the pan roasted cod. I also got to try the tuna sashimi pizza and ka-pow cauliflower, but I thought that these were just okay. Will definitely be back again as the food was great and it's an excellent place for date nights and special occasions. More...
It was our first visit to NeXT and had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the 8 course blind tasting. Barbara was great and suggested a couple outstanding wines to compliment the food. Looking forward to our NeXT visit. More...
All I have to say is the NEXT restaurant is a culinary experience that one must try at least once. Food is outstanding. $$$$. Service is impeccable & the chef (s) are amazing. More...
The food is always the best and service is great! My wife and I got married there we loved it! You need to try it.
The food and service were fantastic.
Super tasty food and service from Rob was terrific! It won't be our last time there.
Really tasty fusion cuisine, well worth a visit
Fantastic food. You do have to be somewhat adventurous to maximize your enjoyment.
Worth every penny for this decadent experience. The last time we were at NeXT, the continental style brunch platter was in a league of its own.
Excellent food and amazing presentation.
They have a VERY nice brunch on Sundays
Fabulous!! Experience their blind sharing menu. 8 course, chef's choice....Michael Blackie delivers eloquence in every bite.
Nice food. Great services.
Great service, great food. Can't say enough good things about the restaurant.
Went for 3 chef's 1 meal. Excellent food and was fun listening to the chef's speak about the meals and what inspired them
We have been twice now and had the blind tasting, it was so delicious and the service was excellent. Will be returning for sure. The second time we went we did the wine paring with the blind tasting, highly recommend it! Your food is delicious and the presentation of the dishes is well done! More...
Have been twice - once for the brunch and once for dinner. The brunch is delicious, the board is set up perfectly for two people with two of everything but is a lot of food for two people. Dinner was great and is set up sharing plate style but with large portions. The wine list looked small but an additional list is available. Reservations are recommended as it fills up quickly. More...
I like the place. It it clean, friendly, fantastic food and really good environment for any occasion. Place could be slightly expensive but, you won't regret because of quality
Love the concept, food and service are fantastic!
First time and the food was fantastic! Service was friendly and efficient. Lamb outstanding!
Great place to eat! Best restaurent to Ottawa! :-)
Great atmosphere and wonderful food!
We got the blind sharing option. Which was one of the best meals of our life's. Service was great and the chef came around to speak us as well. We had a gift certificate which helped but you're looking at a 200$ dinner with drinks. But over all very pleased with our experience. More...
It was great! We had the Blind Tasting menu which is an 8-course meal and the 4 wines which complimented our meals. I had fireworks in my mouth! It was amazing and worth it! We love It! The place is intimate. It is good for anniversaries and the like. More...
My wife and I had a delicious Sunday brunch with many courses, well recommended and tonnes of fun in a group - especially if you can clean up any courses your dining companions aren't keen on.
We ordered the "blind sharing". The food was amazing! Love their free bread and dessert! The only thing was not tasty was the chicken breast, which was dry and tough. Strongly recommend the deep fried cauliflower, squid & fish. More...
Excellent restaurant that exceeded expectations. Wonderful place for an anniversary. The "Blind tasting" menu choice is a unique experience that is the only way to go. The meals offer a one-of-kind taste adventure that is matched by the fantastic service. Wonderful touch to see the Chef come to your table during the meal - love it. More...
Huge shout out to the 6 amazing cooks who made Easter brunch happen. You guys are killing it. Best food I've had in so long. I also liked the veggie sticker pots, I never see them without meat so it was a nice surprise. The gnocchi, compressed watermelon and Mac and cheese were my favourite. Props to the NeXT crew for working hard on late nights prior to today. More...
This was an excellent dinning experience !

Best brunch we have ever experienced, just an outstanding menu backed by a very friendly and competent staff.
Can't say enough great things about Chef Blackie and his culinary team. Great place to have a special meal or an event.
I recently went for the Easter brunch buffet with my sister. The brunch buffet is a great way to try many items and there is something for everyone. The salads are numerous and unique; my favorite had quinoa and smoked trout. The strip loin was very tender and flavorful. The vegetarian potstickers were crispy and delicious. I don't eat pork and I usually don't get to try the potstickers. The pancakes were fluffy. There was an extensive charcuterie...again I don't eat pork and did not partake. The cheeseboard was generous and there were so many deserts even I could not get to all of them and I am usually pretty good at that endeavor. In spite of my dietary restrictions I left very satisfied and I would love to come back. I will have to save my pennies for next time though. Oops I guess its nickels now. More...
Went for Sunday Brunch. Food was excellent and artfully presented. Tremendous selection of many different foods presented on a board for two patrons. Restaurant is open and airy with lots of natural light. Exceptional service. The only complaint from me was that there was hardly any hot water in the washroom. I ran the water for quite a while and it became tepid at best. I hope the dishes were washed in much hotter water. Again, that's the only note of unhappiness. Definitely would go back. Please get the water fixed. More...
Food was excellent and our waiter couldn't have been better. Very enjoyable experience.
I had my sister's bachelorette brunch at Next and the food, the servers, the environment were amazing! We were a group of 16 and we all had such a great time! The sharing board was HUGE and everything was absolutely delicious! Thank you for the awesome service and food! I will definitely be coming back! More...
Wow, absolutely amazing food!!!
Great food! Chef is awesome
Our 1st time at NeXT and the food was absolutely delish! Coming from Navan through 5pm traffic, took us over an hour to get there, but you can be sure we will make the trip again for sure!
We decided to get take out for our staff party. Were they ever impressed! We will make this a yearly event and when we can, we will take our Staff to NeXt restaurant for our quarterly meetings.
Phenomenal food and service, so happy I came and will highly recommend to others!
The fourth dinner here in the last year and each time we've gone for the blind tasting menu. Different and wonderful each time. Skip lunch and enjoy the rich flavours (saving room for some small bites of dessert). Great service each time too. More...
Excellent food and service! Looking forward to our next visit!
Went for brunch... Food and service was amazing
Made a reservation in the spur of the moment for a late evening dinner for two. What a pleasant surprise. We took the blind tasting menu. Everything was delicious and beautiful. Only drawback was that we were both extremely full. More...
Enjoyed the blind tasting menu for a special night out. This is a treat!! Not inexpensive, but worthwhile if you're looking for a special, fancy night out and willing to splurge. The beef tartar was our absolute favourite! They also have room rentals for events and it's a nice venue. Service was great. More...
Great service, kind people, great atmosphere, food is okay. Great place for events! Very accommodating
Amazing, I never had anything like it!
Best meal I've ever had!
Many people told us how good the food was at Next so we went to celebrate our anniversary. We weren't disappointed, from the moment we arrived we new it would be an exceptional experience.The whole concept is to choose foods from the menu and then share them with the rest of your table, or you can let the chef decide, this is called the blind sharing menu. We let the chef decide. This is an 8 course meal that comes in waves, it took about 2 hours from when we got the first plate. We were so full we could hardly move but it was so worth it.The chef was fantastic and the kitchen is open so you can see what goes into getting orders out to the patrons. (Think Gordon Ramsey minus the bad language and chaos)It was a well run kitchen, staff were great, food was awesome. I recommend this restaurant. Especially those who appreciate good quality food and atmosphere. More...
Great service, wonderful food, especially the Brunch!
Reasonably priced amazing food. I went here and got the 8 course sampler. Every part of it was great. The server was fantastic and knowledgeable. The dessert was really good and there was more than enough food to satisfy anyone's hunger levels. I would definitely recommend going here and I will be going again as well. More...
Our water went out of his way to ensure we were taken care of. The food was amazing:)
Amazing Brunch! Was my 2nd time there and just outstanding. Service is amazing and the food is out of this world. So very very good. Will be back again
It's a pretty unique place for the Ottawa area. It feels like the old Cercle Universitaire but in a modern venue. It's great for big holidays or and stuff!
Overall it was a great experience. Food was delicious and serving sizes were surprising. Waiter was knowledgeable, helpful, and enjoyable. Only thing that could have seen improvement was the time we waited for bill after the meal was complete and table was cleared off. More...
This was our first time here. The ambiance was lovely, and the restaurant was very clean. The food was beyond excellent, and the servers were helpful and knowledgeable. The only things that bothered us a bit was the big push to order the Blind Sharing on the menu for $63 per person (the most expensive item on the menu). After thoroughly explaining what it was, I decided to order something else instead, the waitress still insisted that I should order the Blind Sharing - even though my husband and daughter had ordered it. A little heavy on the sales pitch, which made us all feel a little uncomfortable. We would definitely return, but the servers really need to lay off the sales pressure! More...
Great fusion type of food restaurant. Too bad it is all the way in Stittsville. Service was impeccable!
