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.

Pricey but great food overall. Quality and great presentation. Outdoor dining set up was a bit blah as it’s in a corridor between buildings. Would have loved to have had it set up along the street for better ventilation and people watching.

Waiter took his time coming around to take our order but rushed us to order everything at once because the kitchen was closing after lunch.

Celebrated a Sweet Sixteen with the Birthday girl’s older siblings. Nobu always delivers! Great to see the restaurant packed and hopping, too.

Although some staff were excellent, for most part service was hurried. Miso soup was almost slammed onto table, splashing on us - as were the bento boxes - taking away from the food presentation. In general service was more rote than special. Banquette seats need a thorough cleaning.

If you are looking for a quiet table, consider reserving one in the mezzanine. Great (low) noise level there!

I think it’s a great place to indulge but definitely left feeling hungry cause we ate family style as our first time there. But not as expensive as I thought it would be. The black cod, and brownie were my absolute faves

Food was great but service was very slow. Our server was working hard but clearly had way too many tables. Restaurant seemed understaffed which made the experience disappointing considering the price point.

Ive always had a great time at Nobu. I come here often. never a dull moment. your services are great. I was hoping to get to my reservation for 8 pm on time but then i got stuck in a traffic accident on FDR and I needed to change it. your staff was very helpful, very accommodating and they moved it to a later time. I wish i had more time to spend and enjoy more of your amazing foods but hopefully next time :)

Our reservation was for 8:30 but we were sat at 9. The restaurant gave us a complimentary appetizer that was delicious and a few complimentary drinks. The service was great and the atmosphere was even better. My only request would be to lower the thermostat. Upstairs.

I have been to Nobu many times and always had a lovely experience. As usually the food was delicious but the experience was awful. I brought my son for his 14th bday. He happens to have a better palette than most adults and Nobu is one on his favorite neighborhood spots. I felt like when we arrived we were placed at an awful table outside that was so warm we sweat the entire meal. We were then asked what type of water we would like. The waitress finally came over and asked if we were ready to order after about 15 minutes. I had to ask if we could first order drinks. We had been sitting at the table for a good 30 minutes before drinks arrived. Once my son started ordering Wagyu steak that was $38 dollars an oz the waitress became a little more friendly. We were never asked if we would like to get a 2nd drink or even another bottle of water. It seemed the food was being rushed but we were never asked if we needed anything else. Next to us they decided to seat a mother and 3 year old that was adorable but not who you want to have sitting next you when you are taking anyone out for a special dining experience. After the meal being rushed to get dessert took forever. As I said earlier the food was delicious but we certainly did not have five star service. When paying over $400 for two people with only one alcoholic drink I would think we would be treated like all the other guest. Don’t think I will be returning anytime soon. NYC has many other amazing restaurants that would be happy to serve us.

Highly overrated and underwhelming. The drinks were the worst part and it’s extremely upsetting. $20 a cocktail but the bartenders are incapable of executing $20 worthy cocktails. Terribly unbalanced, not only with the drinks but the food as well. Service was subpar.

The toro with caviar was so overwhelmed by the wasabi that you couldn’t appreciate the toro and caviar fully.

The salmon and tuna tacos were disappointing and had an off taste, the yellowtail however was superb.

The soft shell crab roll wasn’t impressive. One of the rolls didn’t even have crabmeat inside, it was all tempura. Felt cheated considering it’s $20.

The lychee martini was the worst I’ve ever had, how do you mess up such a simple and classic cocktail? There was no balance to it, just cheap alcohol, overwhelming liquor, and juice. None of which were utilized correctly.

The pineapple martini had peche liquor in it. Why? Who knows but it completely overwhelmed the cocktail, you couldn’t even find a hint of pineapple because the drink wasn’t balanced and executed properly, the liquor overpowered and overwhelmed the cocktail, it tasted horrible.

Although the service was professional, I didn’t appreciate ordering a $42 app and having to wait to eat it because I wasn’t set up with the proper utensils. I wasn’t followed up on how my time was going until the near end when the entree hit the counter.

As someone that’s professionally worked in restaurants, this was a huge disappointment. All the hype for Nobu and for what? They hit below the belt of mediocrity.

The hostess was friendly, prompt, attentive and efficient.
Every plate and/or item of food we ordered was such a delight; full of subtle surprises and exceeding each of our expectations. The food running team were also very pleasant, extremely knowledgeable,and courteous.

However, our designated server was less than friendly,
and far from attentive.

Despite his acting so “put out” by the most basic discourse with us. My friend and I found ourselves attempting to be extra nice to him, hoping to lighten his mood and generate a casual rapport (to no avail). The two of us were both sober; thoughtful, and polite. We honestly couldn’t figure out why he spent so much time avoiding any contact with our table, and treating us as though we were such an inconvenience when he did.

The irony is, if he’d been more attentive, he could’ve been rid of us that much sooner *and* made more money, as we are both service industry veterans.

Lovely experience. Sat in the outdoor atrium area. Lighting was a bit too bright, but that seems to be controlled by the building. Music was also a bit too loud at first.

Food was delicious, as always. Miso black cod is always a must. Also loved the toro and scallion roll so much that I had to get a second one.
