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 was an excellent pre-theater choice. Each plate was beautiful to look at and delicious to savor. Service was exemplary. Can’t wait to go back for the mushroom soup (again!)

As usual,the food is very good and the service is quite attentive.
However, we felt very rushed and for the price of the meal, we should be able to enjoy every minute.
The hostess who phoned to confirm our reservation even told us what time the table would have to be "given up".
Not a great way to head into the restaurant. Also, each dish came the second we put down our chopsticks. There wasn't even a respit in between.
I ate here some time ago for business and this time took the family for a belated Christmas dinner. I should've remembered that I felt hungry, rushed and monetarily "spent" afterwards.

Definitely someplace to be saved for special occasions, because the check was crazy! But the food and the service was so worth it. Great evening!

Large group right beside us that was very disruptive. Super loud speeches and clapping the entire time. Staff did nothing about it. We could not hear each other. Good food but atmosphere poor.

A hidden gem in New York City. We booked this restaurant prior to arriving in NYC and unknowingly walked past its entrance daily. Once inside it was heaving with locals and tourists alike - a good sign. Our waitress was knowledgable of the menu and made some excellent suggestions. There was a really great atmosphere and well behaved children were completely weclomed! Our 5 year old enjoyed the evening as much as us, as well as the shrimp tempura. Fabulous, fresh japanese food and an extensive bar menu...5 Stars from us.

Nobu deserves the reputation it enjoys. The food was superb. Our waiter was terrific. We asked him a question and with in minutes he was back with an answer. He knew the food and wine selections extremely well. We’ll be back!

Disappointed they changed their tempura rock shrimp salad into what appeared to be a sharing appetizer. Their sashimi we have ordered for years upon years was served with skin and again, disappointed in the changes
