About Nobu Fifty Seven

Nobu Fifty Seven, the first uptown New York location for legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, opened to much anticipation in the summer of 2005. Nobu's co-owners are his longtime partners: renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro, and Hollywood film producer Meir Teper. The restaurant showcases Nobu's signature new style Japanese cuisine with classic dishes such as Tiradito Nobu Style and Black Cod Miso, and the hibachi table. The restaurant received three stars from the New York Times.

Designed by David Rockwell, Nobu Fifty Seven evokes fluidity and the imagery of an Asian river with curves and details of abalone shell chandeliers, sliced bamboo stalks in terrazzo tiles, scorched ash tables and Japanese quilt fabric. Sake barrels imported from Japan tower over the first floor bar counter as diners make way to the upstairs dining room. Burnished woods, rich hues and soft lighting create an ambiance of elegance and refinement.

There is an expectation that Nobu is a high quality Japanese dining experience, however the quality of the food and presentation doesn't allow this ranking. Yes, the fish is fresh, but the rest of the dishes could have been at any Sushi place in the city. I have eaten here a few times and always wonder why am I paying $75 for a lunch when in reality it should be closer to $40. \n\nOn the flip side, the staff is amazing and know how to take care of you.

The server forgot a main course and left us sitting there for 1/2 hour without even so much as checking in, then asked if we might have missed the course versus realizing they forgot us. I actually had to go find him. The concept of the restaurant is having many courses of meals all sequencing dictated by the chef. Our meal left so much to be desired. We were anticipating dining here for a while and were not only unimpressed but left quite angry.

Disappointed in service and food. I have been to a couple other NOBU locations with excellent service and food. This was just fair. The yellow fin with jalapeño was great. The miso cod was terrible, very 'fishy', the tempura rock shrimp was fair, the spicy tuna roll was fair at best. Had to look for server. Just very disappointed. Would not recommend this location.

We had a 9:30 reservation and were forced to wait approximately 40 minutes for a table to become available. That being said, once we were seated the food did not disappoint. All the dishes we had were flavorful and well presented. Our server was friendly and fairly knowledgeable regarding the extensive menu. Again, the food and service were very good, but the long wait prior to being seated, despite having a reservation, definitely detracted from the overall experience.

Food was outstanding. I was not happy when our server dropped the bill and within seconds came back and interrupted us to pay. We were enjoying our conversation and our drinks. We told her we weren't ready, and continued our conversation. Within minutes another woman came by with the machine for us to pay. It was annoying and made me feel like they were concerned we would skip paying!

New York has endless sushi restaurants offering a wide range of experiences and prices. This is definitely not your cheap corner sushi shop where you order your $15 lunch special. That being said, Nobu will give you a whole new perspective on sushi dining. The prices are higher but the food is out of this world. Make sure to order something other than just your typical sushi rolls -- you can leave that for your corner sushi shop. Don't get me wrong, Nobu's rolls are great, but all their other creations will truly blow you away. You'll understand the hype instantaneously. \n\nWe asked the waiter for ideas, and he was really very helpful and knowledgable. \n\nHappy eating.

Nobu 57 is a great modern sushi fusion restaurant in midtown. The menu is pricey, but the food is expertly prepared and served, and the modern decor adds to a great overall experience. Kobe beef dumplings are off-menu, but available first come first serve. I have enjoyed dining here many times with both business associates and friends.

Made a reservation for 4 on Thursday @ 1:30 for what we thought was restaurant week.\nIt turns out it was not being honored....57 was NOT participating....Apparently Open Table's drop down list for NOBU obscured the exceptions notations...and a suggestion to go to an alternate list for restaurants participating in Restaurant week.\nSo the manager suggested we choose from the tempura menu, as they were all priced under $30.00. \nWe were all totally Underwhelmed!

As with a lot of new York restaurants we ordered too much. I felt they could have explained how many pieces we got in each order of sushi rolls this would have helped a lot \n\nOverall a very nice place

I took a couple to Nobu who are sophisticated cooks.

Our waiter made\nuntutored suggestions. One of our\nappetizers was overly sweet and one main course was Inedible and we sent it back. The three of us were literally served each of our courses at a different time with long delays between. This was so\ndisappointing.

All dishes that we ordered were a bit salty esp salmon rolls and sushi. Kids could not eat it. They pour additional Fiji water in your half empty glasses not asking whether you want it. Waitress forgot to bring tempura that we asked for at the beginning. Overall, not bad for occasional dinner. Overpriced though.

This was on our 'must get there' list for quite awhile as we have eaten at Nobu and Nobu next door a few times and loved each meal. Nobu 57 has a Sunday lunch pre-fixe which was an amazing meal. For $55 we had a fabulous and unique meal with lots of taste of different foods, styles of cooking and seasoning. Everything was paced well and the timing was perfect for lunch before a concert at Carnegie Hall up the street. The room is very sensual and relaxing. Long sushi bar but everyone was seated at tables and booths. Service was top notch and definitely worth a return visit when we can.

Service was very poor at Nobu 57. We had a party of 4. Each person at the table experienced a problem. Person 1 received their main dish 10 minutes before the Person 2. Person 2 received their main dish and appetizer at the same time. Person 3 did not receive their order at all because it was not put in to the kitchen by the waiter so Person 3 did not even begin eating until Person 1 and Person 2 were already finished. Person 4 waited 20 minutes after Person 1 to receive their main dish. Ideally, the table should be served their main dishes at approximately the same time. Each person at the table ended up eating their main dish separately while everyone else waited. This type of poor service is not conducive to a business meal with guests you are trying to make a good impression with. I would not recommend the lunch hours to business people for this reason. Everyone at the table was very disappointed and I was quite embarrassed to have selected this location.

I've been to the Nobu in Vegas numerous times, and it was much better than this one. One of the pieces of sushi I had was very tough, which was very unlike Nobu - most of their fish melts in your mouth. My wife had the Japanese eggplant, which was over-sauced with miso, and, in general, they seemed more concerned with moving us through there than anything else. There are other sushi places in NYC that I'd go back to before I'd visit Nobu again.

We ordered about 8 dishes, all of which we have ordered many times before. We get the dishes spaced out which the waiter willingly obliged, changing plates and flatware for each dish. The problem is with the owner charging more money for less food. Less fish and less greens with the salads. The lobster and shitaki salad had less lobster than usual. The yellow tail sashimi with jalapeno was very good. The edamame was fresh and seasoned well. The bigeye tuna tataki was very good, again served less tuna and greens. I liked the squid pasta and shishito peppers. The rock shrimp was good. The miso cod clawingly sweet, which it never used to be. The sushi rolls and pieces were good. A disappointing ending was the bento box, no box, overcooked chocolate lava cake and so so ice cream. Service was very good. The room is decorated beautifully.

My 18 year old son and I celebrated his high school graduation with Nobu's Omakase. It takes some trust to order the chef's tasting menu - I'm very glad I decided to trust this time. We got to try many of the dishes that made Nobu famous and all were delicious. Highly recommend Omakase if you have the time to relax & enjoy a rather lengthy dinner and if you are open to trying new items you might not normally select from the a la carte menu.

My tenth time at Nobu. Who keeps track of things like that? I do. Four times to Nobu. Six times to Nobu 57. One of my all time favorite restaurants. I've never had a bad meal. I've never had anything other than delicious flavors in so many varied dishes. I try to eat something from all sections of the menu--cold appetizers, hot appetizers, tempura, sushi, etc. The black cod, which I've had so many times, is still one of the best fish dishes that I've ever eaten. Consistently good. Beautiful dining rooms (I actually prefer Nobu at bit better--a bit simpler, a bit less noisy.). Pricey, yes. But worth every cent. One more thing. The wait staff is always so helpful and friendly. I'll be back.

My eighth time at Nobu (this time Nobu 57) and continue to love it. I make selections from almost every category on the menu. Thin sliced yellow tail with jalapeno peppers is fresh, light and refreshing. The tuna tacos were outstanding as was the rock shrimp. Sushi rolls and shushi pieces at the end of the meal were fresh and flavorful. And so much more in between. The restaurant is beautiful inside, but, frankly, I prefer the atmosphere at Nobu downtown. Our server was so helpful as the servers always are at Nobu. One of my favorite NYC restaurants.

I came to Nobu on Saturday November 14, 2015 for my six year anniversary. My boyfriend and I had a 9pm reservation but arrived half hour early. The hostess was so warm and welcoming and found a table for us to be seated immediately. Our waiter was nice and answered all of my questions. He explained to us that dishes are best if shared and gave us some recommendations. I drank (2) Mia Margarita's which was so good. We ordered the Edamame, Salmon New Style, Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice, Rock Shrimp w| creamy sauce, Black Cod Miso, Yellowtail Jalapeño Cut Roll. Every single dish was to die for. For dessert we devoured the incredibly delicious Strawberry Yuzu Shortcake and a spectacular cappuccino. My boyfriend is typically a steak-man but he LOVED every single dish we ate. This place is an experience. It's worth every single penny and the bill was much less than we anticipated around $234. The service was 100%. I would recommend Nobu to anyone. I also plan on celebrating many more milestone here. Go-Now!!

Had drinks in the bar area prior to being seated. Server was very pleasant and checked on us without being overbearing. The table server seemed distracted, didn't bother to ask if we had any questions, we had to inquire about a few things. Food was average at best and overpriced. We felt he wanted to turn the table very quickly - no personal touch at all. During our NY stay, we dined at other high end fine dining establishments that were outstanding in both service and food quality. We paid for dining on 57th Ave., not for an exceptional dining experience.

Nobu 57 has slightly over-priced access to the finest sushi grade fish in the city. \n\nThe ambiance of the restaurant is definitely 'young chic/loud bar', and it is likely a place to go when you want to impress others with your style and access to money. \n\nPresentation, service, and experience were all top scores of course - though our server was a little automatic in her answers and likely wasn't a true foodie. \n\nWe ate well, very very well, and got out for $500 for two without much to drink. \n\nWorth it?

Wonderful. Booked an early sitting as we had a theatre booking but wished we had given ourselves longer to sample more of the extensive menu. Following the excellent advice of our - highly qualified - server, we sampled a selection of the hot and cold specialities, with the amazing Crispy rice with Tuna and special sashimi really standing out. The Sake was a little much for me but the beer with lime foam was a treat. The ambience is dark and moody, there seemed to be a wide mix of diners – including a lot of business meals - but there are lots of smaller areas to break up the large space of the restaurant which is upstairs from the bar. An expensive meal overall but there is an option to sample just a few plates or go to town on the tasting menu so the experience can fit your budget.

We went to Nobu 57 for the first time since we were in NYC for our honeymoon. We made a booking for lunch but didn't realize that there was no omakase served at lunchtime. However, on hearing that it was our first time, the amazing waitstaff went out of his way to ask Chef Ishi if he had the time to prepare an omakase meal for us - Chef obliged and we proceeded to have the best meal of our honeymoon.\n\nEverything about the meal was superb, but Nobu is particularly exceptional where it comes to seasoning its dishes. The Hamachi Tatare, Salmon Carpaccio and Tuna Tataki were the stars of our lunch for this reason. Nobu's perfect balance of flavours (savory, tart, spicy, and umami) in the sauces of each of these dishes really brought out the freshness in the fish, and did not mask the natural gentle taste of the fish at all.

And given the time limit, we couldn't order them again. What we did get, though, was amazing. There is no Nobu where I'm from, but maybe I'll give it another try when I'm ever near one again.

Expected a very high class Japanese restaurant. Had a late night/ after theater reservation. Was berated by phone day before to be sure to arrive on time or might not get seated. Arrived on time and told that our table was not yet ready. Sat at bar where we were overcharged for drinks - that is soft drinks - 2 cokes were $10, but when we could not pay bc the bar tender was too busy talking, the maitre'd told him to forget it and he would put on upstairs tab where the price for the 2 cokes was $8. \nFood was good but only slightly better than our usual NYC Japanese restaurant that we frequent multiple times per week.\nNoise level was extremely high. Most patrons were young people who looked like they were spending their parents money or tourists.

If you want to pretend you're in Vegas where NY name brand restaurants go to be mediocre, go to Nobu 57. The service was terrible, servers did not recall what we ordered, brought the wrong food, took our utensils, telling us we had no more coming when we did. They were genuinely confused. The noise is the thump thump of bad oughts club dining, and the sushi is merely adequate. At $6-10/per piece, adequate does not cut it. For context I am a 20+ year Manhattanite who dines out often and eats very good sushi regularly. Avoid.

Always a wonderful time at Nobu 57. The quality cannot be beat. I always make it a priority to make it here when I am in town. My favorites are the spicy tuna or yellowtail on crispy rice, shishito peppers, hearts of palm salad, brussels sprouts, and the big eye tuna roll. You really cannot go wrong with anything on this flawless menu. It was definitely more quiet this night since it was during Labor Day weekend and the city was pretty empty, but it is always a fun and dynamic atmosphere. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the US.

Our expectations for Nobu were that this was told to be number one Japanese restaurant. \nWell this was absolutely NOT the case. \nApart from the waitress spilling both soups on myself and partner, the food would rate no better than any cheap take out. The tempura ranked as the worst I have eaten. The taste on my palate was that of consuming a mouth full of oil. \nMy partners scallops were i think cooked with butter which together with pepper overwhelmed the taste of the scallops. To round off this disaster I have no idea what they did to the rice, but, again this was not high quality Japanese rice. \nTotal waste of time and money. If you are looking for good Japanese food this is NOT the place to go

Better than the hype. 2 couples went on a dinner date, and I wanted to impress our friends. Impressed is an understatement. Our friends said it was the best meal they had ever had. It was top 10 for me.\nThe coolest part was that 2 of us got the chef's choice tasting menu. One person had specific seafood tastes, and the second person said they did not like raw fish. Can you imagine telling Nobu you don't like raw fish!? (I was embarrassed, but the waiter immediately put us all at ease).\nWell, not only were these wishes accommodated; the food that came out was so delicious that these people were challenged, surprised, introduced to new things, and generally in culinary nirvana.\nThe two people that ordered off the menu were similarly amazed. To put icing on the cake, the kitchen was able to time the chefs choice menu with the regular menu items so we all were eating our courses together. Everything was delicious, and the service was incredible!\nIt was pricey, but no worse than a similar caliber restaurant. What I can say about the price, is that it was worth every penny! \nI can't wait to go back.

Neither of us knew how to use chopsticks and the server was very kind and understanding in bringing us some silverware. Everything on the menu sounded so tempting that it was hard to make a decision. Oh well, that gives us a reason to return, plus we will make time for dessert. Although Nobu is clearly an upscale restaurant, we felt very relaxed and comfortable. Highly recommend.

We have long wanted to go to Nobu and finally have. I knew the food would be terrific, and it was. It is not a bargain, however, so either go if you have deep pockets or make it a special occasion. The Bento Boxes are a great way to try many flavors and are filling. The black cod with miso and the tempura shrimp were incredible. The raw fish tacos were TINY and not worth the money. The tofu was SMALL portions and not that interesting. The miso eggplant was divine, but again, if you're a vegetarian it's an expensive endeavor to get filled up. It is one of the few places that serves real wasabi, but you have to ask for it otherwise they give you the fake wasabi that is horseradish and mustard dyed green (not that it's bad - I like it). It was good to taste what real wasabi was like. So, if you like Iron Chef, want consistently good food, and GREAT service, it's a great place. If you're on a budget - many other options in NYC that are delicious.

For the hefty $600+ bill for 3 people, we were underwhelmed. For the medium omakaze we had, they served only ONE course of sushi, which had only 4 pieces. Not impressive. Service also really left to be desired. We spilled something and I had to ask them to come clean, and point out to the server that was very much in a hurry to leave it half dirty.

I had dinner at Nobu a few days ago. I was really excited to go having heard so much about it. The ambiance and staff were as expected. A beautiful place, friendly staff and a fun atmosphere. What disappointed me though was the food. I adore sushi and going to Nobu I thought that i was going to have a wonderful meal. I ordered the assorted sushi and an extra shrimp tempura roll. I am sorry to say that it was quite a disappointment. In my mind, I expected sushi that melts in your mouth. Instead, the food was average at best. I do not claim to be a sushi connoisseur. But I have eaten good sushi at many places in New York, San Francisco, even Tokyo. The Nobu sushi was something you would expect to find in an average neighborhood Japanese restaurant. Maybe my expectations were too high. And maybe Nobu is not known for its sushi. But I would hope that a restaurant of this stature would pay more attention to the quality of its fish. I did enjoy the overall experience and would most likely go back. But not for sushi....

I love Nobu in London but had never managed to go to the NYC ones for a variety of reasons. We were on a visit to NYC with our two little ladies. We reserved the earliest table at 1745. My 5 year old had a cut prawn tempura sushi roll, whilst my 3 year old enjoyed the chicken skewers and boiled rice. My husband and I ate the chef's selection which was delicious as expected. We all enjoyed the desserts, the chocolate fondant and green tea ice cream is a winner for me! My husband found the strawberries and cream dessert phenomenal and the girls loved the ice cream. The cocktails were also good. I especially enjoyed the elder-flower and vodka cocktail. I was surprised how the place filled up by 1830 so there was an atmosphere and we felt like we were able to have a date as well as a family meal.

The only reason we gave this restaurant a 4 star rating under 'value' is because it is not a value restaurant. It is a top of the line, best restaurant in NYC.

I've visited a few other Nobu locations in the past and had high expectations. All of these were met from the moment we arrived. Our table was ready on time. We were greeted in a timely and friendly manner by our server, Tahir (he was amazing!). The ambiance is very similar to other Nobu locations, no complaints about the noise level. As far as the food goes, everything was spaced out well. Lobster tempura with truffle ponzu was my favorite. Once again, no complaints. My guest and I left very pleased overall.

We let the wait staff know we had reservations for a show in NYC at 7 when we arrived on time for our 5:45 reservation. The staff bent over backwards to give us a memorable meal while getting us out on time.

We ordered their signature Yellowtail Sashimi which we have eaten in various other locations and this one had no flavor. We ordered a few tuna rolls and tobiko with quail eggs, they were alright, nothing I will remember. The crunchy rice with tuna was average except the rice was overly sticky, sticking to my teeth. The sea bass was underwhelming and the chicken teriyaki similar to that I can buy at the market.\n\nI have eaten Nobu in the Bahamas and the food and service was spectacular, this was wayy below the standards of Nobu.

I have eaten at over 7 Nobus around the world and i have to say this was my worst experience yet, and i have eaten here before. The service was really lacking, and i felt like the food was just on a mass produced fast food menu with no real love or passion - in fact i think of Nobu 57 as just a factory turning out the same dishes night after night and i think this is reflected in the service and presentation. I think there are many other Japanese restaurants in New York such as 15 East that do a way way better job and if you want to spend $100-$200/head dont go to Nobu.

I have been going to Nobu for years. This is where I get surgeons visiting me to dinner and where I go myself. I have been so many times to Nobu 57. For the first time I was shocked to find two hairs in my sushi Ikura. I had a visitor with me and did not want to spoil the occasion but could not eat any more. i paid my bill in total and with a generous tip not because of the experience but because I could not spoil the evening in front of my guest. I did not enjoy my meal and did not eat what I ordered so was very disappointed. I could not complain as I had my guest with me. I feel it will take a wonderful experience to compensate me for the experience.

To say I was disappointed in this anticipated dinner is an understatement. My concert buddy and I pick a different restaurant for every musical outing, and this time it was Nobu 57. \n\nAtmosphere: Reservations were way in advance. We arrived and were shown to our table right away. Our hostess seemed confused what to do with our party of two. She tried to seat us at a table set for 6 with a high chair. That should have been my first hint of what was come. Nobu is set up with a main dining area, and a back section which is screened off from the main room. We were seated in the back section, alone at first, and then with a table on either side of us with multiple well-behaved children. There were 4 other vacant tables between us and the screen separating us from the main room, where the conversation and hustle and bustle and excitement were all taking place. The feeling of isolation was overwhelming.\n\nThe food: when we go out to eat the bill tends to be outrageous from the amount of items we order and share. Our server seemed to be confused as to how to handle our order. We told her, just bring everything out as it is ready. Instead, it seemed as if everything was intentionally spaced out with 10 minutes between plates.\n \nThe Edamame Choclo came first, it was nicely cooked, but overly seasoned. Very salty! Brussels Sprouts with Ponzu was a plate of bland sprouts swimming in ponzu. I would not recommend it. Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna -square blocks of salty rice on skewers, fried and served with very good spicy tuna. Avoid the rice, go directly for the tuna. Beef Toban Yaki - nicely cooked beef, but swimming in a sauce that tasted the same as the ponzu with the brussel sprouts. The sashimi and sushi were most definitely worth the wait, which came 65 minutes after we ordered it, or 85 minutes into our visit. By that time, we were in foul moods and deciding to never come back.\n\nSo for $340 for dinner for two, this is a big thumbs down for me.

Everything was very fresh and served in a timely manner.

Always wanted to try a Nobu restaurant, thought it would be in Las Vegas a couple times but this ended up being our first. The bar was standing room only and there was a couple eating at the bar with their two young children also sitting at the bar with them (which is something I do not think should be done). Especially since there were tables available in the bar if you waited for one.\nWe had Opera tix at 8pm so we made reservations for opening at 5:45. While standing in the bar awaiting notification our table was ready, Howard and Beth Stern came in and went right to their table (Baba Booey!). I had a measured Bourbon (no free pour here) at the bar for $18, then we went to our table. If you had show reservations you were seated in a certain section near the stairs. The menu is not going to explain to you exactly what you are ordering or what it will look like or what the serving size is, you need to do some research and know a little bit about Japanese food/fusion. Which brings me to this point:\nIn Japan there is an accepted form of offering food/menus for your restaurant, in fact it is now considered an art form. You actually see an exact rendering of what each specific meal looks like, so there is no question that you know what will be coming to the table when you order. If that is good practice in Japan, then it should be offered in the US also, show us what we're ordering please!\nThe food was good, started with the edamame, then we ordered the signature Black Cod w Miso, the Beef Toban Yaki, Shrimp Tempura cut roll and Salmon Avocado cut roll. I also had two Grapefruit Martinis (which were very good). Everything was tasty, but I was in no way blown away by the flavor or presentation, and since we don't live in the city, when we spend that kind of $ we expect to be blown away. I would recommend with that proviso to my friends, but as my wife stated, for a much much more reasonable price, we could get a nice similar meal at Wasabi in Hudson, NY. :)

We got there at 9:45 which was the time for our reservation. We ordered the special which is a series of dishes at the chefs choice. It comes in packages and they have 3 different ones. We wanted the most expensive to really appreciate their cuisine. The lady said it probably wouldn't be possible because of the time - I reminded her that on the menu clearly stated that we could order that option 30m before the cuisine closed. She came back and said the cuisine would close at 10:15pm so we couldn't order that. We said we were visiting and went there specially for that. No way around it... So we had to order from a menu which had no explanations in English . my wife and I even though we speak English, Portuguese, French, Italien and Spanish, we don't speak Japanese so had to blindly guess what to order...\nFunny enough there were people arriving after 10:30pm and they were being served and the kitchen was still open...\nThe bill at the end was about 150 dolars a head with no wine included. We left and had to go to another restaurant cause we were still hungry...\nNever going back!

We love Nobu. We visit the Melbourne location frequently. Love everything about it. The food, ambience, decor, service- everything. \n\nWhen I booked dinner at Nobu 57 I had high hopes and great expectations. It was still delicious food of course but the place was so noisy we couldn't hear each other speak. It was so casual there were people in ugg boots. Now, as an Aussie, I totally appreciate the humble ugg but I just didn't feel it had a place in Nobu.\n\nWe ordered the chef selection menu because we like a surprise and wanted the best Nobu 57 had to offer. So we put faith in the chef and were not disappointed. The food was incredible. And just the right amount. \n\nHowever, we were a bit confused when a dish came out and was described as 'a thank you from the chef for choosing this menu'. It made us think it was the last dish when in fact it was about halfway and we were still hungry. I think if the server had mentioned that there was more to come we would've had a better idea but it just was a little weird. So we asked for the menu to order more food since we were hungry. This was met with some strange looks (and in hindsight I can see why) but of course it would've been another opportunity for the server to let us know there was still more coming. It worked out in the end though and we were satisfied with a delicious dessert to top everything off. \n\nI'd go again and recommend it to friends but maybe we'll try another New York location when we are next in town.

We dined at 9:30 on Sunday night. Walking into the restaurant we liked the decor and the 'cool' ambience. Our server Daniel was very professional and knowledgeable. He fell into the same trap as most when it came to recommending only the most expensive items on the menu. We aren't afraid to spend and the bill after top for two was over $400. The food was very small in portion but lacked the wow factor to make up for that. It was the best miso soup we have ever had.

Dozens of people were standing at the entrance and all along the entrance to.\nThe hostess told us we'd have to wait a few minutes until the table is ready.\nA few minutes turned into almost an hour.\n\nThe service was good and the food also, but the prices are very exaggerated.\nThere is no doubt that if you are a celebrity then you've come to the right place to see and be seen.\nBut those interested in good Japanese food, has a great selection of restaurants much cheaper and pleasant, and those that honor your time or sneeze at.

I went to dinner with my dad--I am vegan, he is not. We had amazing food and the service was okay, a bit slow to start but once we ordered everything came in a timely manner. They were so great at accommodating my dietary choices--you can replace fish with avocado in many of the menu choices. For omnivores and vegans alike I would recommend the Crispy Rice w/ Avocado (it is heavenly--a must have for sure), the Cauliflower w/ Jalapeno, the basic tofu dish which I cannot for the life of me recall the name of and the Avocado Tartar. I also got a standard avocado roll and some edamame--easy to get right but delicious just the same. If you want a yummy and tropical non-alcoholic beverage the Mango Lychee drink is amazing and makes you feel like you're on a beach somewhere!!

The food was amazing. Second time we were here, the service was even slower than the first time. This was my girlfriends birthday dinner. Took 15 min just to get the menue after we were seated. The food came out super slow. There were times when we needed drink refills and the playes removed from the table for up to 20 minutes. The worst part was i pre-arranged desert to be brought out with her name written on it. I reminded the hostess, the guy that brought the menue, the guy that brought the drinks and our waiter without my girlfriend knowing so it would be a suprise. At the end of the meal we sat for 15 min waiting. I ended up having to ruin the suprise by asking where it was. The waiter, who i reminded actually forgot and had no clue. I had to excuse myself from the table like i was going to the bathroom and yell at him just to get the dessert.

Nobu was at his top 10 years ago, but today there are more great chiefs and unfortunately he is far way behind. The restaurant 's decoration is poor,ugly , it's too loudy (you can't hear you talk), and the food is decepointing. We wanted the degustation menu (120 $), but when we saw the noise and the dishes with a market's salad and only a soya sauce, we took 4 dishes to share. Too much simple, nothing cooked, indeed the basic products are excellent quality. we didn't enjoy at all our diner, we were anxious to leave. And we talk about the price !!! Nobu no more again !

The sea bass was good. But every few minutes the staff yells iraisha masei. Like its a cheap ramen joint in Japan. Decor is nice. The hamachi was terribly thin. The lobster ceviche was cooked lobster. Which seemed odd. Ceviche is not cooked

Great food, have to go because it is Nobu, but expect to eat a little hungry. Good for tasting and experiencing the ambience. Miso cod is the best thing I have ever tasted. Servers could recommend some dishes, or offer specials.

If you go here, you must get the yellowtail w jalapeño special. The spicy tuna w sticky rice is also amazing! If you have time, you should try to order an item from each section of the menu.

The Nobu 57 experience was everything I expected. The qualify if food was first rate. My only negative was that they didnt open the doors until 11:45 am which was my reservation time \n\nService was great. Food was\nVery good!!

went pre-theatre, and this worked great. they were very attentive, indeed if anything it was too rushed. anyway the food was very good, though perhaps not to the level of the vest best places i'm used to in philly - a bit canned versus inventive.

Nobu is now my favorite NYC restaurant. I travel there 7-10 times/year and go to Nobu every trip! The lobster tempura and black bean sauce sea bass are fabulous!

Go for the 'Chef's Choice' meal. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Last trip we splurged on the top of the line. +3 hours of dining elegance. Make sure you ask for them to include the black cod in one course.

Looking for a great restaurant to celebrate your special evening? Well, keep it moving...\n\nWent to Nobu on Tuesday for my brother's girlfriend's birthday. I asked for a special dessert with Happy Birthday on it (at the suggestion of the hostess) during the time the reservation was made. I confirmed said dessert the day before arrival. Guess what they forgot? \n\nThe food was mediocre. Nothing special. If you've been to Sushi Samba, you've been here. Granted, the Black Miso Cod was delicious. It had better be, it's one of their signature dishes. My brother tried to order the Tempura Scallops but the server returned to notify him they were out of scallops. She said, 'the chef recommends Scallop Sashimi instead.' We said, 'Uhhhh, so you're not out of scallops?' She said, 'Oh,' and we never saw her again. Which brings me to the service. One word - horrendous. They we're rude and inattentive. They forgot to bring the birthday girl's soup & servers were impossible to flag down or nowhere to be found until they brought our entrees. By then, too late for the soup. If we asked for anything our request was granted but it was as if we were asking the servers to jump through hoops on their own personal time. Never again.\n\nSave your money & spend it where the staff don't make you feel like you're an inconvenience or that they're doing you a huge favor by refilling a drink.

Having dined at Nobu in Australia, my friends and I were expecting a quality experience in NYC. The waiter was not helpful in the least when we asked him to suggest plates we could share, and the food was very average. I feel we could have had better sushi (and other dishes) at my local mall. The restaurant was noisy, but it was the unfriendly and flippant vibe of the staff that was worse. We were in NYC for four days and had some great meals at some in demand restaurants - Nobu was not one of them.

The food is just ok. The sashimi texture and freshness are not that great for the price. For the similar cost, I have had much better sushi (and presentation) in many other places. But it locates in a very expensive area in NYC, so no complain about that.

Went her for lunch and enjoyed the sizzling beef bowl and the rock shrimp salad with sweet and spicy sauce! Plenty of options for the non sushi eater. Cool vibe.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at Nobu. The sushi was very fresh and delicious. Service was attentive, not pushy. Ambience was classy, not too loud. Price not too bad considering New York City. Overall, I would definitely recommend to other out of town guests.

This place is nice. Food is amazing but the portions are tiny. Don't be that hungry if you go here. Just expect to order several dishes. However the waiter was amazing, providing great suggestions. Extremely attentive and friendly. I totally recommend it. Also very pricey. Be prepared to pay $$$. About $170 for two people that's with two drinks and food.

They talked us into getting the Bento box for lunch and I wish they hadnt. The sushi was excellent and I wish that I had eaten more of that and not as much of the other.

Have been to Nobu five separate times. Each time was incredible. It is hard to get a reservation and you may have to wait for a table, but it is worth it.

I felt like the dishes I chose were a bit too salty for my taste. If I decide to return, I will most likely order sushi.

I left my fur coat in the restaurant checking room and when I got that it was ripped and the restaurant did nothing, not even apologized. And then sent me an rude email saying they can not be responsible, 'because it never happened before' (?!). Never coming back.
