Cocktail Bar
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.

Nobu is amazing no matter what location. This was my first visit to 57 Street NYC and it did not disappoint. We had a fabulous server who helped us order a la carte and try famous standards and new to us selections. Such a wonderful culinary and aesthetic experience.

be aware, the food portions are small. If you want to try the hot and cold dishes this is where most of your check will be ran up. But the quality is amazing. If your end goal for eating is quality over quantity 10/10

One of the top dining experiences of my life! Everyone knows about the miso cod and the sticky rices but what they do not tell you about is the gyoza! My friend and I literally could not talk to each other anymore as our souls were overcome with sensory pleasure. The donuts were a great dessert option too. The service was outstanding- seriously amazing job to everyone working on Friday 1/7.

I am extremely sad and disappointed to say last night our mail at Nobu was like eating grocery store sushi on pretty plates! Yes, it was that bad!!!

Three were 3 of us at dinner looking forward to our meal and all ordered a variety of sushi dishes and miso cod. The sushi was dried out tasting and there weren’t any special sauces or flavors on the hand rolls or the cut rolls.
The artichoke salad with noodles was overly salty and drenched in dressing that left a oily coat in your mouth. I actually had to return it it was that bad!

The spicy tuna tacos had no flavor aside from a Mexican taco shell:(

The eel was dried out lacking the usual delicious syrup like sauce.

I don’t want to drag my review on, but simply want to inform others that this meal was a huge disappointment for our family.

Our waiter was fine but not good at suggesting unique dishes. The service started off well and got very slow in the middle to end. We did not order any drinks and we did not have any dessert and our meal was over $400 before tip.

It’s our last visit at Nobu... that’s for sure!
I think they are riding on the hopes that their name is enough to draw customers.I should’ve known there was an issue when it was so easy to get a reservation.

I can never cook this at home so it is worth paying the price

The sushi salmon with cucumber
Was excellent the other two we ordered not worth it - best go to sushi bar.
I would suggest the hot wagyu grilled beef rather than cold
wagyu beef in sauce.

Recommend highly the black cod and we enjoyed the rock shrimp tempura , crispy rice with tuna tartar and tacos

Forget the spinach salad

Worth the drive from New Jersey

We like Nobu downtown very much but were disappointed with Nobu 57. It was very noisy and crowded and there was a long wait for the first and 2nd courses of the Bento boxes that we ordered.
Also considering the surge in Covid cases, guests were getting up from the tables with no masks.

Very sad overall experience for someone spending $900 only on food for 4 adults and a child. Server was not knowledgeable of the menu and hence the wasted $$$.
