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.

Personally I'm very disappointed. The food is very averages and very expensive. We were very
exited to be able to get a booking unfortunately would not be rushing to go back.
Service is not up to the standard that we were expecting for a highly recommended restaurant.
It's very dim and very noisy at the end of our dinner.

Although the food, server, and ambiance were great my overall review is Good. I had a bad taste going into the restaurant after a representative called to let me know that my table could only be reserved for 2 hours. I was there for my husbands 53rd birthday (Nobu was aware) and the entire time I was looking at my watch to make sure we finished within Nobu’s time frame. This was my first visit Nobu visit in New York and it will be my last.

Signed,
Rushed in Nobu

Had lunch here on a Sunday and the service was fantastic. Everyone was always making sure dishes were cleared, water was full, food brought out and described by server. Dessert bento box was delicious (lava cake and green tea ice cream) but way expensive- $18. Awesome experience otherwise!

We waited close to 30 min between dishes. Ordered black cod that never came, instead got a dish that we didn’t order. Food was overpriced given the taste and quality (saw black guts on the back of the shrimps we got). Overall very underwhelming dining experience.

We have been to the other Nobu’s and have had wonderful meals. It’s fun to share dishes and the seafood is the very best quality. The vibe is modern and chic. At this dinner the wait staff changed up so much that I really don’t even know who our waiter was at the end. He took the order quickly without any real interaction and never came back again. No one asked how the meal was – nothing. Somebody else came and took the dessert order. It was disappointing for the price tag. It also made the dinner seems out of sync. The atmosphere was uncomfortable as well. We were sitting next to a group of six men doing shots and laughing so obnoxiously loud. I like a bar atmosphere but this was over the top and right in the middle of the restaurant. Someone should have tactfully come over and helped calm the table in a positive manner. However with the interactions between the wait staff and the clientele I’m not surprised that no one did. Sadly it felt kind like a factory chain setting. A red lobster with quality food. I haven’t had this experience at Nobu in the past. I will not be visiting this one again.

An amazing time with wonderful food and drinks, if anything could have been better it would have been if there was a larger bar area on the main floor. We got there early and could not find bar seating. However they did allow us to move to our table early and wait for our party there.

I've been to Nobu in various countries and thankfully the black cod does not change. It was so delicious.
However the Lobster starter was so disappointing. It seemed completely tasteless. The worst part is it was too cold to taste properly. Like any food straight from the fridge it does need resting before serving.
The tempura mushrooms and other veg were very large. Bite size would be better. It's hard to cut with chop sticks. The green salad was uninspiring.
The lamb chop was delicious
Half a thousand dollars with just one cocktail and half a bottle of champagne, two starters, two mains, a few tempura, one lamb chop and one shared dessert - that's a lot really especially when much was lacking.
Great service however.

High expectations based on a recent visit to Nobu Malibu. Noice level so high we could hardly hear the waiter explaining the menu.

Choose the Omakase Signature tasting menu. Amazing oysters, sushi and dessert. The other 3- 4 dishes only ok, large undelicate portions with plain taste.

Not worth the money.

The dinner was good, but we were placed in a table which was almost alone at the end of the corridor, no light, no action, you could be everywhere... much better in London where you do not have 3rd class seating

Service at Nobu Dallas is superior to this NY location. Staff here were nice and particularly courteous when giving the right of way, but table service was normal...nothing bad nor outstanding.

Nobu 57 is always a great place to dine ... but it is much more pleasant at lunch than dinner. It is not overcrowded then, and the attitude of the entire is house is much more hospitable. Apparently most of the heavy drinking starts after the lunch crowd has left the building. Same superior cuisine - grilled toro, black cod with miso, and beef toban yaki delighted this visit - as dinner time. And much more relaxed. My darling wife even received tips in managing chop sticks and a promise of a follow-up on our next visit from one of the best waiters in New York. Fun!

el servicio impersonal y poco simpático.
ni una sola palabra bienvenida ni de despedida, por parte de nadie a excepción del camarero que poco hablaba.

I have to been going to Nobu for many years, and overall have always had a great dining experience, with consistently great service and delicious food.
Saturday night my husband and I went to Nobu 57 after a play, and unfortunately although the food was still very good, the timing and pace of our meal was off.
We expressed our unhappiness with the experience with our waiter who tried very hard to accommodate us but it would have been nice to see a floor manager help out the service & kitchen staff and give us an explanation .
Having said that, I will continue to go to Nobu and hope it was an isolated incident.
