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.

    Had a bit of a snafu with the timing of our entrees; but, Nobu did their best to make good. Just think we had an inexperienced waitress. Others stepped in and made things better. Food was excellent!

    Tables far too close together, kept getting brushed by people as they walked past. People shouting to be heard made for a very unrelaxing meal. No but a victime of its own success. Which is a shame because it used to be great.

    I have been to other Nobu locations so I do know the brand. When we first arrived the service was immediate even though there were some tables of 6-10 around us. After that initial contact, there was nothing, no water refill, no tea refill, we had to flag someone down finally. They did warn us when we ordered the chicken lunch item it would take a bit because it is prepared fresh and took a bit more time. What we didn't anticipate is that they would serve 2 of the guests their full Bento Box meal and they would completely finish it and be ready to leave before the person who ordered the chicken would finally receive theirs. The timing was horrible. The food was ok, nothing that was a wow or that I would go out of my way to go back for. I am giving some grace because it was a holiday weekend and they may have been short staffed, but for $80 a piece for lunch I have a much higher expectation.

    Diana was an exceptional server who expertly guided us through the menu and assisted us in making an exciting tasting menu that included so many of the must haves! She possessed an extensive wine knowledge which I have rarely have encountered. She simply has a depth of understanding of the wine list, varietals, vintages and pairing skills. She carried off her service with a casual elegance and warm and embracing attitude. The food itself was absolutely amazing. Everyone will tell you that they have the very freshest and highest quality ingredients, but it is in the artful execution of the use of these ingredients that brings it all together.

    Wonderful experience. However; I’ve been to Nobu, both downtown and midtown, and I’m sad to say the former is superior in ambiance as well as quality of seating. My partner, who joined me, is also a former Nobu employee and she agreed. All aspects of the dinner, from service to food itself were on par. However, there was several poor guest experiences we witnessed while we were there. Children knocking over food and drinks repeatedly, standing in the pathways aimlessly, and parents who could not be bothered to move them. Additionally, there was a man who had clearly had too much to drink and was pounding his fists on his table several times. Directly behind me, the bench partition barely stayed up because of the jostling and boisterousness of the people behind us. This is all to say that Nobu presents itself as upholding a certain standard, and in cuisine it excels. However, ambiance, upkeep, and decor are also integral parts of what patrons come to expect and that was lacking at this location.

    I brought my husband here for an impromptu birthday lunch while in the city. Food and service were spectacular as usual! We had our 6 year old with us and the kitchen was kind enough to make her a special dish of broth and noodles that perfectly suited a child’s palate but was delicious to the adults as well!! As always the miso black cod was amazing and is a must order!!

    The food was really good. I am quite impressed that east coast sashimi can be this fresh. Also for the sushi, the rice is definitely up there, very full body chewy rice perfectly balanced with vinegar. Service could be better. The waiter just put down the 14 pieces chef’s selection of sashimi and left. In a good restaurant they would normally introduce the fish….

    I'm shocked at how bad my experience was. I accidentally made reservations for 2 instead of 3 and then called four times to try to change it and they told me it was impossible to add an extra chair and under no circumstances could they fit a 3rd person onto my reservation. Yet when I arrived with my party of 2 (informing the 3rd in our party that there was no room for him) we were seated at a booth which would have easily accomodated 4 people. (I had thought that since they couldn't fit an extra chair at our table, we'd be seated at a 2-top, but there weren't even any 2-tops in the whole restaurant.) Once over the shock of seeing how easy it would have been to seat my 3rd friend at our table, I was then shocked at the ridiculousness of the prices. $60 for a plate of sashimi that I could easily get in Brooklyn for $20 (the quality seemed on par), $18 for 4 ring-sized donuts...I could go on and on. OK - it's an expensive place, whatever. The servers, while friendly - surrounded us like flies the entire evening, trying to pick up our plates and drinks every few minutes - despite not being remotely finished with whatever it was we were eating or drinking. It was an insanely maddeningly and unnerving experience and needless to say, I will NOT BE BACK again.
