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.

“Sushi and Tapas dishes, ecclectic and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

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 was great with a lighter than air goat cheese. Fried calamari was light and crispy with spice in the batter and in the remoulade . Stuffed chicken thigh with root veggies was very savory, a definite comfort food item. Pierogies with duck confit was hearty, but a little heavy on the "confit" for me. Good desserts; one apple crisp type dish and pumpkin crème brulee. Excellent wines suggested by our amiable server Henry. Particularly the Barolo from Montalcino, 2007. Conveniently located 2 blocks from GEVA theater.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

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!

“Interesting menu, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

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.

“Love the Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

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.
