Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
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.

We went to Nobu for the experience of the grand room and to people watch. We got that but the food is just ok. No special sauces, distinct flavors, pretty presentations. Everything comes out very fast and I was told up front that I could only be at my table for 90 minutes. I guess the servers take that to heart as we ordered and had 2 drinks and dinner was done in about 45 minutes. Prices have definitely gone up and food not worthy of the prices, but it is NY and a happening place.

We went for a birthday celebration. The food was excellent. The order came out in various intervals, so my guest did not have her entree for a while after I had been served. The service was fair. There was no silverware on the table and when the food was brought out, other waiters were slow to accommodate our request. Overall, I had a good experience.

Nobu consistently has the best sushi. The service was excellent. Our server really went above and beyond. I have absolutely no complaints. In the world of expensive restaurants, Nobu does deliver.

The food was amazing as always. And our server was honestly the best. My husband was having a problem with spicy foods in his diet and she was so helpful it was unbelievable. He gave her a big tip.

Besides the service being slow and sitting outside with noisy construction it was a great night with friends. I appreciated them moving us inside when the construction started. The food was great as was the atmosphere already planning to come back.

Two of our four entrees came out 4-5 minutes before the third, then the final entree came out after we were done eating the first two entrees.

Our server was barely around (he seemed more occupied with turning 4 tops into 6 tops that helping us). My wife asked for an iced tea, but we never got it. He only stopped by to ask how the food was after we were done and he was delivering the check. When I started to mention our concerns he dropped off the check and walked away.

Overall, very disappointed.

It was my birthday, we wanted to sit outside but there was construction at 9:30pm. They offered to sit us inside which was nice but it was packed…like a pandemic never happened. The service and the food was good, but just surprised to see a restaurant in NY at full capacity.

Christine and Collette were nothing short of amazing. I had a train to catch, and I made them aware of this. They did everything possible to make ensure I had an excellent experience with delicious food and quick service. Of course it is not a shock that Nobu was nothing short of perfect.

Amazing food and service. Our server went out of her way to make sure that my dietary needs were accompanied while the rest of the table enjoyed dinner without restrictions. Trying having a soy allergy at a Japanese restaurant… I could not have asked for a better meal however. This was our first time to Nobu and I can’t wait to go back!

Terrible service. We had to hunt our waitress down for literally anything. Sat for an hour until we could even order food. The food was mediocre. Nothing new. Felt very generic. Won’t come back here, that’s for sure.

Food was excellent…service needs improvement…the acoustics are horrible and impossible to hear each other from across the table (5 or 6 diners)…very pricey compared to similar restaurants and the service was spotty at best…personnel were too stretched with too many tables to cover and no one overseeing the entire room and directing service.
A very popular place and packed. Definitely good for business expense entertaining, well heeled young New Yorkers as well as tourists.

Sensational. From the moment we entered, we were taken care of. The service matched the high levels of the food being served. Plates and empty glasses were bussed so quickly off the table it almost appeared that they just disappeared magically. The wine service was impeccable and the speed at which food and drinks were served defied expectations.

Was not as good as during our past visits. Service was just ok, rice on the colder side, fish was ok and the amounts of garnish was small. Wine list with out of stock Champaign.
Tacos were good.
Must improve!
