About Nobu Fifty Seven
Nobu Fifty Seven, the first uptown New York location for legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, opened to 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.
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.

Nobu Fifty Seven Ratings and Reviews
I had a delightful birthday lunch at Nobu 57. The spicy scallops were just amazing as was the sashimi. The service was lovely from start to finish and the birthday dessert of molten chocolate cake and green tea ice cream, complete with candle, was fantastic! Now, let's just see if that birthday wish comes true!
Pésimo servicio tardaron horas entre plato y plato
Los platos fueron llevando de uno en uno en vez de llevar todas las entradas primero y luego todos los platos fuertes
Además de la peor calidad de comida dentro de todos los Nobu en el mundo
Disappointing experience. Sushi was average. All hot dishes were heavily over seasoned to the point that the flavor of the primary item was distinguishable. This included every sauced/dressed item in the lunch bento box (seared tuna salad, rock shrimp, black cod). Tempura was bland. The shishito pepper appetizer was the best part of our meal. They were very good, but the meal went steeply downhill from there. At Nobu’s price level, the food really needs to be outstanding and creative (or at least exquisitely authentic). It wasn’t. However, service was good and the decor/ambiance is very nice. I had a great experience at Nobu’s Tribeca location years ago. This lunch did not measure up to that. This was our least favorite dining experience during a 4 day visit to NYC.
The food is always fresh and special. I highly recommend the chef tasting menu, as you'll experience food and flavors you may never have imagined. Always ask your server about the menu, they are very knowledgeable and will help your culinary experience. Trust in what they do here, because it's amazing!
We dined here last year on a trip to NYC and it was so memorable that we decided we needed to come back. Both times we chose to do the Omakase (middle price point) and we were blown away by the chef's creativity. This time was completely different than the last. Service is fantastic. Servers are friendly, professional, extremely knowledgeable. All of our questions were answered and we were not rushed. Kudos to both Felix and Lindsey.
I haven't been here in years. I remember it being good so thought I'd give it another try. Our waiter was nice and attentive. Wine was OK. Sushi and food were good but nothing spectacular. I've been to plenty of other sushi restaurants that are just as good if not better and less expensive. You're really just paying for the name. If you haven't been here, you should definitely should try it. Its probably fun with a big group but I wouldn't make it a regular hang out. Overall the food was fine.
I have dined at several Nobu restaurants around the world because I have come to trust that I will always have a delicious meal, served in exquisite environment, with the highest standards of service. My prix fixe lunch at the Manhattan Nobu was fantastic and I would especially recommend it to diners visiting for the first time.
This week’s trip to New York and Nobu 57 was exclusively for mine and my husband’s anniversary. We were suggested this restaurant by a friend back home in Dallas. When we got there, the server took a very long time to take our drink order. After he brought my husband his water, he disappeared again for about 20 minutes. We ordered 1 appetizer, not realizing the size of the appetizers, and our server left us again for 25 minutes and just kept disappearing. The food was absolutely awful. The appetizers were undercooked on the inside and barely cooked on the outside and our sushi rolls were over salted in their ingredients. We were very disappointed with our experience at Nobu 57 and will not recommend anyone or come back to this establishment at all.
LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE!
My family and I eat a LOT of Sushi and Japanese food all over the country...... but each and every one of us agreed that our dinner at NOBU was indeed a life changing experience for anyone who truly appreciates creative cooking, fine presentation, and superlative ingredients. The Sake is also of the highest quality and absolutely worth enjoying for the appropriate portions of the dinner. ( A LOT !!!)
Our waiter was also SUPERLATIVE ....... he was HIGHLY knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the menu and it's little quirks ...... and in fact he recommended a few items that I would have passed over, that when served were SOOOOO EXCELLENT that we actually had to take a minute to catch our breathe at the unexpected delight we experienced.
IF we could have........ we would have completed our dinner and started ALL OVER again right then and there !!
Additionally, the mood and demeanor of every member of the staff was PERFECT and made us feel welcome and treasured as their dinner guests despite the fame and fortune of this restaurant ....... (where other restaurants seem to quickly get that "superior" attitude with success)
I would urge EVERYONE not to miss the opportunity to dine at NOBU 57.
It's an excelent restaurant. To the point that i went there 2 nights in a row, while i was in New York for business for 5 days. I love both the Japanese and the Peruvian cuisine and i found the combination at Nobu perfect. The staff were very friendly too, and the prices were fair, at least for somebody coming from Switzerland. i look forward to going again once i am back in New York
