As the first uptown New York location for legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, we opened with 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.

Always amazing food there. I just didnt enjoy the outdoor facility. It'll be a problem in the summer when it is hot.

Server was polite and explained all our options. Wish he came back to ask if we wanted a second glass of wine or at least refill our water once. That's the only negative but we'd go back for sure

Nobody is easily one of the best seafood/sushi restaurants that we've ever been to. The food & service were superb.

We had a great time here. Ate ‘outside’ in the structure built that has tables set into individual rooms with windows. There’s also a heating system connected to the rooms which was appreciated as the evening got cooler. Food was delicious. Definitely want to go back to experience indoor dining here one day.

The food was excellent, but service was very slow. Our meal took 3 hours for 4 people, with waiting 15 minutes between courses. We ordered quickly, but the kitchen must have been overwhelmed. We went through the majority of our meal without seeing our server (but the bussers and other support staff were attentive and excellent).

Food was delicious. Yellowtail jalapeño and the Kobe beef dumplings were phenomenal. Our server was on point. With his recommendations, though the food came out very rushed. Before you can finish one plate the second one is already arriving. Also, the glasses had a smell to them, which you usually get when your dishwasher isn’t maintained/cleaned properly (something you won’t expect from a high end restaurant).

Colette Wong was our server. She was amazing. Really incredible. She is extremely knowledgeable, yet fun and we just loved being with her for our dinner at Nobu. Her recommendations were spot on. Thank you Colette!

We were in and out in 45 minutes, for $350 for 4 people.
It was more like fast food than fine dining, which is ridiculous. They brought us the entrees as quickly as if they had been sitting in the back on a plate before we showed up. It was preposterously expensive for mediocre food.

I asked to pack the Beef toban yaki because I was full . I did not even touch it and I put the left over sauce of the other Beef toban yaki! When I got home there was no sauce on the to go container . I have been coming to Nobu for many years it never happened . The sauce was not thrown away!!!

One my favorite restaurants in NYC. The restaurant is attractive in its décor and the service is exceptional. Having said that, these factors pale when compared to the food. I had the tacos- lobster, king crab, and Wagyu Foie Gras Dumplings. We also had Shrimp and Lobster with Spicy Lemon Sauce as well as Squid 'Pasta' with Light Garlic Sauce. All were exceptional

The outdoor section is a little weird and isolated, I would recommend only sitting inside. Service was incredible and the food... the food was the only thing that made the weird outdoor section actually worth it. The yellowtail jalapeño was amazing, as well as the spicy edamame with corn. I’ll be going back but inside this time!

The staff seemed overwhelmed and we have been to Nobu several times but this has been our worst experience to date. Food was incorrect, there was hair in our food and we were asked to move tables by the hostess mid meal with hot food on the table. The waiter did try to help smooth things over. We definitely expected and are used to a much better experience.
