given all the positive reviews and feedback , my wife and I were looking forward to visiting this restaurant, unfortunately it didn't even come close to the raves. The restaurant is somewhat hard to find and parking can be an issue , our hotel was close enough to walk and this wasn't a problem. We arrived at 7 on a... More

If you can find this hidden gem behind GEVA theater on a forgotten one way street, you will be vastly rewarded. The sushi is fresh, the menu is small yet pleasing and the bar is simply beautiful. You will not be disappointed with either the food or the atmosphere. You must try this hidden gem if you are eating in... More

On a recent Friday night we stopped into Nikko's for our first drink of the night. By the end of the night I was wishing we had never left. I had a Manhattan which was absolutely delicious. We also ordered the charcuterie plate which was yummy and included atypical offerings. Nikko's makes cocktails with one giant ice cube which is... More

Had an early dinner at Nikko before the theater. Our server Henry had some great food and wine suggestions. We started with a great halibut dish on root vegetable puree with asparagus and mushrooms. The fish was delicate and flaky and the sauce was delicious. We shared a sushi roll and the pasta special as our mains. The seafood in... More

All 4 of us liked our food. It was a good meal. We stayed parked there for GEVA performance avoiding problems finding other parking later.

The food here is great! Fun bar and wait staff and atmosphere. Pasta dishes are great. Creative Sushi rolls and cocktails. Valet Parking. Marco and Mark have done a great job with this place. Highly recommend to anyone living in Rochester or just visiting.

Had a really nice dining experience at Nikko. Interesting menu, nice ambience, great service, nice wine list. Menus is a little unusual with 1/2 sushi (rolls, sashimi, etc.) and 1/2 menu items that are between a tapas serving and a full main course. Perfect for sharing. Delicious arancini appetizer with a marinara that had a little extra kick. Beet salad... More

You will not be disappointed! Everything at Nikko is first class. I have been here for dinner with family and friends and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My daughter's bridal shower was held at Nikko also. It was such a unique venue and not your average shower menu. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Went here for dinner before a GEVA show (just around the corner). Imaginative menu with some interesting flavors. Service friendly and knowledgeable. Rather over-priced for what you get.

I have been here twice and the Sushi is just amazing. I had the special each time. The others in our party really enjoyed the lamb. Not my thing but they raved about it.
