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.

    Unbelievable. First time trying tuna, it was raw and I loved it. I’m a picky eater, like put me up against your average 5 year old and I bet they have a broader palette then myself kind of picky. This was AMAZING. My boyfriend got a cold dish - crispy rice and spicy tuna. Not what he expected but beat any expectation he could have had. It smelled good, so I tried it, unreal. We also got tempura, onion, sweet potato and shrimp. Delicious! For entrees we did beef todan yaki and miso cod. Both were delicious, the cod was incredible. My boyfriend got nigiri. After we split the doughnuts which were fabulous. Can’t wait to go back!!

    This was my hubby’s birthday meal and we knew it was going to be extravagant. Initially we were a bit miffed that when someone called to confirm our reservation, they explained that “if” we order a dessert, they’ll provide a complimentary candle and birthday messaging. Ok first off, we’re dropping some major cash here and you’re telling me you’re not going to comp the dessert? Really? For an upscale place, the level of service and spirit of hospitality don’t match what they advertise and what we’re paying for. But we’ve had good dining experiences in the past so we didn’t want to hold this against them or their food. The food is very good near excellent. We did order quite a number of plates and so our server was savvy enough to give us a complimentary petit four after all, which was a nice touch and a good gesture that tied the experience all together. Thank you, Nobu, for the grand birthday meal!

    I originally made reservations for 2 people. Then, I called days before my reservation to see if I could switch it to 4 people. I was told if I did that, there would be no availability until 9:45pm. So I kept my original reservations for 2 people and told the other 2 people that Nobu wasn’t able to accommodate a reservation for 4 people. This was completely false because throughout my dining experience, there were at least 5 tables open that would be able to seat 4 people. This is unacceptable. This restaurant was not busy or packed at all. In fact, it was pretty dead. To not accommodate my request to change my reservation to 4 people was completely false. Furthermore, my food came significantly later than the other people I was dining with. By the time I started, they were pretty much finished eating. I understand that good timing isn’t perfect but at such an upscale restaurant, there would be come sense of urgency to keep plates coming out in a timely manner so people can eat together when they are dining and not eat alone. Also, when our drinks were served to us, the person bringing them, spilled another drink all over our table and floor area. Then the coke we ordered was flat and we went it back for another one and it never game. We had to remind the server that we never got our replacement drink. All in all, this experience was far from pleasant and just a mish mosh of a mess. I will not be returning.

    I think they were very understaffed because we had to wait about 15+ minutes to order a cocktail when we sat down, and really had to flag down our server whenever we wanted to order anything. She was very hassled for the first hour or so, then was a little more available after 9 or 9:30. But the service was disappointing for such a high end place.

    Food at Nobu 57 was excellent---some of the best Japanese food we've ever had. The music was too loud, but they turned it down upon my request. It was very dark in the restaurant and I would prefer more light. Food was great though.

    I had planned Nobu for my 40th birthday and travelled from Scotland to visit having heard amazing things about it, and had my heart set on sushi and some side dishes. My friend is gluten free as well which made things difficult for sharing. Our server, while attentive, came off as quite rude. We asked about gluten free options to which he pointed out 4, then suggested that we order a couple of dishes to share. None of which appealed to me from my friends gluten free options so we decided to get our own. When I said I wanted a sushi platter and a chicken teriyaki, the server was fixated on how we should be sharing our dishes and we weren’t ordering the right way. Then proceeded to tell me I was ordering way too much food for myself. As it was a special birthday, that I had travelled to New York from Scotland to come to Nobu as well for my birthday I was quite happy to buy both and to pick at them but only ended up getting the sushi platter, which was fine, but I wanted to try the teriyaki as well. I was quite disappointed in the service tbh. I understand the premise of sharing dishes (being a restaurant manager myself) but he wasn’t getting that we couldn’t just pick anything because my friend had a dietary requirement, and it ruined my visit a fair bit to be honest. It was meant to be one of the highlights of my trip and it was just ruined to be honest by a waiter who was not meeting the need of his customers and come off rude. They did do me a birthday plate for my dessert which was very nice but I was a bit disappointed overall. And it was a nice touch to have waiting staff come round at top up our water. However, our main waiter could have benefited from some training on friendly customer service and how to sensitively deal with allergens/intolerances.

    Everything is so salty. They use the saltiest soy sauce I have ever had for sushi. Fish is not very fresh. Portion is way too small for the price. If you are looking for Americanized fake Japanese food experience, this is the place to be. Otherwise, with this price, you can have very authentic Japanese cuisine elsewhere in Manhattan, for example Hatsuhana.

    The food is fantastic but all dishes were served to us almost at the same time - felt like the whole experience was rushed which was a shame. They did accommodate our request not to sit at the table the designated to us which was next to the service area.

    The food and service was outstanding. However we felt very rushed. The waitress kept checking her watch as there is a 2 hour limit for the table. When you are spending a lot on your meal and enjoying a family night out the last thing you want is to feel rushed. It’s too bad as we would have tried more of the items on the menu

    It is difficult to follow the explanation of the waiters on the different dishes. It’s like ordering blindly. Sushi os Gari solved this by showing pictures of the sushi/nigiri pieces in the menu. It’s a trend that other restaurants around the world are following. Not going back unfortunately.
