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.

We almost tried the whole menu and loved all of it! Very expensive but you get what you pay for.

The outdoor section is a little weird and isolated, I would recommend only sitting inside. Service was incredible and the food... the food was the only thing that made the weird outdoor section actually worth it. The yellowtail jalapeño was amazing, as well as the spicy edamame with corn. I’ll be going back but inside this time!

The staff seemed overwhelmed and we have been to Nobu several times but this has been our worst experience to date. Food was incorrect, there was hair in our food and we were asked to move tables by the hostess mid meal with hot food on the table. The waiter did try to help smooth things over. We definitely expected and are used to a much better experience.

Good food, but pricy. Very attentive vice.
I suggest to pick the more elaborated dishes. Avoid rolls, sushi, sashimi (very similar to hat you can elsewhere).

Firstly, I’d like to thank the serving staff and the quality of the food. I will see appreciate enormously that the restaurant remembered it was a very special anniversary for me and my partner. That said I specifically asked for a corner table at the back of the main restaurant for two and this was assured to me on two occasions. There is a long story behind it but it was quite a special request and I’m very disappointed that a simple request a promise was just not kept

I would expect feeling unwelcomed. Instead I felt rushed even though our bill was beyond average.
In my opinion this is not the way you should treat your regular customers.

My 18th time eating at Nobu. I hadn't been for 1 1/2 years because of the pandemic. It was wonderful being back. Expensive but worth it. Food was delicious, as always, and the service outstanding. We try to eat from all sections of the menu. Sharing is a must. My favorites: yellowtail with jalapenos and rock shrimp. Had the salmon for the first time. It was a large portion and perfectly prepared. Go for a special occasion.

I was not super impressed with the wait staff. At a high-end restaurant like this I expect a little bit better. They were all nice enough but I certainly didn't feel like we were getting the experience wait staff. Took a long time for them to get back to us on a regular basis. The food was very good but The experience wasn't completely the Nobu I've had in the past.

My party and I had a great time at Nobu 57. The food quality was great and the atmosphere was great. The waiter gave us our food at the appropriate times. Our only concern was that the restaurant didn't seem to limit the number of people as per COVID-19 guidelines.

Service started off great but waitress was not around during second half of dinner.

We had many wonderful experiences here but recently Nobu feels like a production restaurant. Food is good but nothing special

I recently visited Nobu 57 for a birthday celebration. The food was incredible, the ambiance immaculate, and the service top tier. They were kind enough to bring out a birthday cake with personalized writing. Absolutely enjoyed my experience, and I will be back again!

While the food was fantastic as normal the service this time we came was sub par. Our waiter came to our table 30 min after we had been seated after we had to ask another server to get our server. He did not come back and ask how our food was and missed out on us ordering more food because he lacked coming to our table.
