Nobu Fifty Seven
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.

Food was mediocre, very noisy, dizzy staff . very disappointing . Have been going there for the last 15yrs. Off my list.
Food was gorgeous. Exceptional small bites and cocktails before a show.
Great food but especially great server! Needed fast and prompt service and that exceeded our expectations!
Good food and excellent service
Nobu is and always will be our favorite Asian restaurant! The sushi is so fresh. Entrees are remarkable and artfully presented.
The ambiance at 57th Street is perfect! The decor upstairs and downstairs is zen-like. Personally, we always sit in a booth. As for service, it’s usually great and this time, our server was unparalleled!
Excellent food, sublime presentation of the sashimi, a decent and modern fit out of the eating area, relaxed yet professional staff, with the only recommendation is for more wine knowledge and training.
Comida excelente, ambiente requintado e aconchegante.
Went to experience the chefs tasting menu. It was absolutely amazing. It was on the more expensive side but was worth every penny. The portions were the perfect size and by the end I could not eat another bite. The flavors were bold and no additional accompaniments were needed. I would highly recommend eating here and if you are up for it try the tasting menu, you wont be disappointed.
Great restaurant, wonderful service, delicious food. THANKS!
It was a 40th birthday celebration and the bartender was so accommodating!!! She took great care of us!! The drinks and food was AMAZING! Such an awesome night!!!
One of my favorite special treats. Had a great time and really enjoyed the food
I eat at Nobu 57 every time I’m in NY. This time the food quality was the worst it has ever been. My server was also not very helpful with the menu.
Nothing to add
Salad I ordered, shiitake mushrooms, was very bad. Mushrooms were cold... I order that salad at Matsuhisa and it’s my favorite one. Roll I ordered was bad. Didn’t complain because I was with a client. Very overpriced for poor quality food.
Great Japanese style food. A must visit while in NYC!
Overall it was okay. The food was fine. The hostess and Serving team were great. The restaurant noise level was so high that we could not even have a conversation. It was obnoxiously loud like a stadium. Not a fun time.
Good meal, extremely busy place, they get you and out.
The sushi was outstanding as always, tried a few specials and they tasted great!
We’ve been here a couple of times, but this most recent trip was a bit of a bummer. Usually the service is outstanding to match the food, as is expected at Nobu. This past visit our service was disappointing. The food was amazing as always and I’d still recommend it, but not our favorite visit here.
Too noisy, too loud, too crowded, wait staff literally pushed against your chair to get by. Very small portions. Nice, attentive wait staff. Excellent food.
I have eaten sushi for a long time. The crowd is fun, service was great but food was average for the price. I enjoyed a hole in the wall more than Nobu, food wise. Still a nice place with great service.
All in all great restaurant. 2 people can easily run into the $300+ range with drinks and desert. Seared tuna belly is amazing. Order it.
We had higher expectations, we’ve been in NOBU Las Vegas and Mexico and is beyond better, the food was good but not as good for the price you pay. Everything was ok but maybe we were expecting more. The best was the short rib, jalapeño salsa.
Food overrated. Too expensive for what you get. Would try it for lunch. Staff Enthusiasm/courtesy not commensurate with the cost.
My date and I had an incredible time, delicious cocktails and great tasting menu.
Disappointed. While the mini tacos and Toro sushi was quite good, the other sushi was we had was nothing special. Did not meet the high standards you expect from a Nobu restaurant and certainly not at this price point.
Great place with nice brunch prefix. Perfect service. Food was delicious!!
Nobu was definitely worth the hype - We had a reservation and still had to wait a few minutes but nothing terrible. For a date night type of vibe I would definitely suggest requesting that you sit upstairs.
Table of really loud young teens ruined the evening for the whole room
Overall it was just over priced. We ate at Yakitori Totto and had an incredible meal for 2 totaling $150. In contrast we had a very good meal at Nobu, but not any better, (actually sub par in comparison) and yet we spent $400. For a meal nearly 3x the cost, it should have been extraordinary like El Bulli, Veritas or Alinea.
Food was good but hard to enjoy. We ordered a ton of food to try and it all was coming out too quickly. Still eating one course and another would come out. Ruined the meal. Slow down the service until one course is finished. Would not go back, too nany restaurants on ny to try. We went for lunch at 1:30 on a Saturday. Desserts were outstanding. Sushi was good. Waygu i have had better other places but if you haven't had it before and have nothing to compare to, yes its good. Other places i have had it way better.
The omakase is extraordinary---inventive, delicious and definitely enough food. Attentive and friendly staff. I would suggest that restaurant itself needs some updating---feels a bit drab and lighting is not dark or light enough.
I have been going to NOBU for as far back as I can remember. Last 2 times was in DC & 57th Street. Food was subpar and while in the past I would go once a month, now i will stop going.
Disappointed and it’s not a real Japanese restaurant.
The food and service are outstanding.
Perfect New Year’s Eve dinner
Food was coming out too quickly
Still having soup and salads when everting was brought out at once
The food was very good. Service was good and the place was packed.
Expensive, but good sushi, Toro and Waygu beef.
