The Octopus is fantastic, Miso soup is not the star of the menu, the burger- while decent, does not rival Good Luck version as it aims to. —NightlifeCher

To pigeonhole it as a "sushi restaurant" is clearly a misnomer, as there are more non-sushi items than sushi. With that said, the food is the star of the show here - creative, tasty and well prepared. The roasted beet salad is a symphony of colors, tastes, and textures. And, as others have noted, the grilled octopus is tender and delightful, but could use a little more spice. The wine list is thoughtful with pours being fairly generous. Our service was good, until a busser tried to take our water glasses from us before we were done with the table (and while we were drinking from them). —JGerek

The server seemed uninterested in being there; hastily dropping off items. The molten was much smaller, each of the rolls were poorly made with the ingredients crumbling and falling apart as we picked them up; we ordered several sushi rolls, they were all rolled this way. Selection of rolls have gone downhill, in my opinion. Now mostly tempura battered shrimp, I would imagine is an attempt to provide cheaper items at the same price. This used to be the only place in Rochester I would order sushi and sashimi. Now it appears I may be out of luck until I go on vacation. —nightlifecher

I would say that Nikko is a fine-dining restaurant that also offers sushi. We had the burger and full rack of lamb, both of which were fantastic and very reasonably priced. The place is hip and high-class, we look forward to visiting again. —jasons
