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.

Been to both downtown and midtown locations several times. Menu and decor of midtown Nobu feel tired and dated; and for a supposedly high-end restaurant, the restroom was disgusting... no ventilation and smelly (get some scents in there!) with used paper overflowing. They can ride on their name and the corporate expense account for a while, but even with a corporate expense account, I wouldn't take clients there again unless there's nothing around available.

The service and ambience was great but the most of foods are very salty. My 3 guests and I had the classic lunch box, the sushi of the first box was great but others are so salty, so we couldn’t eat all.

Normally very good, we’ve been here several times and usually enjoy. This time was off. They seemed a little overwhelmed. The creamy spicy crab dish came out blackened, way over cooked. At these prices , that never should have left the kitchen.

Our waiter needed to be hailed down for every need. This was not the quality or value you would expect of is justified by the Nobu name. We were highly disappointed.

Nobu is always outstanding! We had their signature dishes: the Yellowish Sashimi with Jalapeno, Spicy Rock Shrimp, Toro Tartar and Miso Cod with the Bento Box for dessert. Everything was fresh and full of flavor, delicious!!

The service was really bad, it took 45 minutes before we got drinks and after an hour we hadn´t gotten food. Because of this they started cleaning around our table before we got our maincourse (we had tastingmenu) and almost threw the food on the table. One in our company is allergic to mussels but they served all of us (including him) mussels after our maincourse, this could have gone very bad. In all - a very disappointing visit to what we thought would be a highlight on our New York trip. So disappointed!

Great service, fabulous food but WAY overpriced. Dinner for 7 was almost $1000. Silly money if you ask me, regardless of the quality. Paying for the name.

The menu is meant to be family style. So many choices! The staff is very helpful and spend the time to answer questions and share recommendations. Food was delectable! My favorite were the salad dishes with tuna and with grilled shrimp.

No real complaints, but also nothing really special either. It is pricey - but not unwarranted.

Bellissimo ristorante con ottimi piatti. Personale cordiale e pronto a rispondere ad ogni domanda. Qualita del cibo ottima ma molto caro. Forse la musica era un po‘ alta di volume.

ランチの弁当をいただきました。二種類とも取ったのですが違いがプライス程、反映されていません。
三貫の握りに関しては、日本では素人レベルですが、外国では普通です。握り以外では、とても美味しかったです。残念だったのは、厨房に近かったせいでスタッフ同士の会話が非常にノイジーでした。
行かれる方は、是非、道路側を希望される事をお勧めします。

Food was good but nothing amazing. Insanely overpriced, would never come back. There are so many better sushi restaurants in NYC for half the price

Food was excellent however the waiter was less than friendly. Maybe he was having a bad day however his short and clip demeanor made for a fair birthday dinner.
