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.

Waiters only care to make as much money off you as possible. After the main course the waiter came to wipe the table while our group was still sitting there (some were eating). Seems like they just wanted us to leave already so cause their shift was over. Mind you this was at about 3 PM.

I love their food; all the cold sashimi is unique and excellent. But, and I know this comes with the name and the location, it is vastly overpriced based on the portion sizes. I expect to pay a lot in Manhattan and especially at a place such as Nobu. But the portions are ridiculously small for the price, even for Manhattan.

My recent experience was that the young, female waitress, who was dutifully performing her tasks as taught, seemed very shy, and spoke so softly that she could hardly be heard over the din of the music. And, after the place filled up with people and their conversations, it was next to impossible to hear her. Aside from that, she was very attentive, kept the cold sake on ice and kept an eye on our glasses so she would refill them promptly without us having to ask. I know that's what she's supposed to do, but she did it very well

Despite my nitpicking on these two points, I'd definitely go back and I'd definitely recommend Nobu for a special dinner.

Food was good, but service was terrible! The waitstaff kept trying to clear our plates before we were done with them. At one point they took my wine glass when we still had half a bottle left to drink. We felt extremely rushed and undervalued as patrons. I won’t be going back.

Would not recommend to anyone. Very highly priced bland sushi. Think $20 for a small 6 piece handroll that tastes like you bought it at a grocery store. The rock shrimp appetizer and spicy seafood soup were the only things we had of note and we tried 6 different rolls while we were there. We had a lunch reservation at 1:30 on Saturday and the kitchen apparently closed around 2:30 for a shift change. Why they would schedule reservations around the time their kitchen is closing is beyond me. Our waiter acted like it was a bother to explain the menu to us and hurried us along because he wanted to go home. We were really exited to try Nobu and left disappointed.

Myself and my wife were in NY for a short break and had a “Date Night “ in Nobu 57.
We had a drink in the bar area which had a great atmosphere although it was difficult to get to the bar with all the diners at the bar.
We sat upstairs for dinner and the food was superb, the waiter who served us was excellent with great menu assistance but not overbearing at the same time.
The ambience was really good and there was a great buzz about the place.
Would definitely recommend Nobu 57 for a Business dinner or a romantic night out.

A restaurant like this ahoud respect the customers and must have clean and higienic restrooms

Nobu57 is an exceptional dining experience. Service is excellent and the waiter was very helpful in explaining the options. We both had the brunch bento special which included a selection of Nobu specialties as appetizers plus your choice of entrees and desert. We had a beef dish and seafood rice bowl plus the whisky cappuccino and chocolate cake/green tea ice cream. All items were excellent. The overall experience is well worth the price!

Even my beef avoiding wife loved the Wagyu beef. Sliced super thin in different sauces was incredible.

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!
