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.

    The room was slightly too warm (Monday 6/27). Food always outstanding, and so are the prices. Love that your water glass is almost constantly refilled: mark of a well-trained staff.

    It was uncomfortably hot the entire time. As soon as you walked up the stairs it felt like the heat was on. Kind of ruins the experience when you’re sweating the whole time.

    Our waiter was amazing. This visit was a part of our honeymoon and we had never been to a Nobu before. He recommended some dishes and kept them coming. We enjoyed every bite! The wine was also great - he allowed us to taste two reds before we decided on a bottle. Highly recommend nyc Nobu 57.

    Made a special request for the dessert that was confirmed on the same day via phone. Dessert arrived without the request and ruined the surprise I had planned for the night. 2 out of 7 orders were good. The rest didn’t live up to the hype. Bathrooms are not well kept.

    We’ve been to Nobu numerous times. Our dinner last night was just okay. Ordered 7 dishes, 2 were very good- as we remembered. Remaining, were forgettable and disappointing. Drinks are always outstanding! One point, and I do hope Nobu does get to read this- we were at a Broadway show, just seated and my cell rang. It was Nobu just letting us know they will need the table by 7:45. I did say okay and didn’t think that would be a issue but if we are still eating, then what. I was then informed that they’d never not allow us to complete our meal…honestly, we felt that was just wrong to call for this reason. One of the items we ordered, the server said she’d check with the kitchen, it takes 35 minutes to prepare-it was chicken teriyaki. Server came back to let us know, kitchen said okay. It wasn’t even good. If we go back, it will be a limited selection, along with Nobu’s signature cocktails, and nothing more. It’s not at all what it used to be. Still tough to get a reservation.

    Food was very disappointing! I loved this place for many years and it used to be excellent food force the price .. last night food was not good at all .. my friend and I both agreed something was really off with this place … super busy, good service, but terrible food for the price you pay especially - the sauce on the salad was too salty and too sour… the fried rice with tuna tasted like cheap oil fried donuts and was supposed to be with avocado (according to menu), but did not have it .. desserts were also not good at all we barely tried it .. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

    The food at Nobu 57 is very good. I went with a friend and we ordered several things. I need to be gluten free so I mention to the receptionist who informed our waitress. She said we could order and let us know if there were any dishes that could not be made gluten free. We order the yellowtail Jalapeno,it was very fresh. We ordered the Nobu vegetable tacos, it was a nice crispy bite. We ordered the sticky rice with spicy tuna (this dish is only if you are not really too gluten sensitive because it is fried in the same oil as food made with gluten but, the coating is made with potato starch). We ordered the Beef Toban Yaki medium rare with a side order of rice. It was a top of finely slice cooked onions and thin mushroom and was very flavorful and tender. We order the Bento box for dessert. It was a fondant chocolate cake with matcha green tea ice. It was yummy. I have also been to Nobu 57 when I did not have to be gluten free and the dishes were deliciously made in their original recipe. Although the food is expensive, it is well worth it.

    The setting/scene is unreal. The food is better. First class wait staff - the tempo of the meal and ability to order in rounds makes the night. We tried to order everything on the menu and each dish seemed better than the prior.

    The experience was not good. For $225 each on the Omikase, you expect to get something of substance. We left hungry and unfulfilled with what we thought was a poor selection of food. No rice, no noodles, nothing solid. We received about 6 different courses of small sushi and some lobster. With the addition of alcohol, the total with tip for 2 people was $810. Nobu has gone downhill. Not my first visit.

    The waiter cut my girlfriend off while she was ordering which was kinda rude. He was little condescending overall and didn’t explain to us (two people who have never been to NOBU before) that you order and share most things until after we ordered and he informed us things would be coming out at different times. Idk if he does this at every table too but he kinda looked over my shoulder while I did tip. I knew i was giving 25% bc of the restaurant but I was very turned off by his elitist type attitude, I would have given more if he didn’t do this. Food and the rest of the experience was excellent however.

    The BEST meal I think I may have ever had. If you're a seafood person or a sushi person, I highly recommend Nobu! The service was awesome, we had a server whose name was Justin, he went through the dining experience from start to finish since it was our first time there, and explained how to read the menu and choose our foods to share. He gave some amazing recommendations and everything was delicious. Super expensive, definitely "splurge for a special occasion" type of place, but worth it!
