A beautiful restaurant in a grand old building. But, every very expensive and tiny portions. The fish taco was one bite and it was $8.00. Also, the lunch which comes with miso soup, never came. I totally forgot until I had left. Nice menu, nice place, with good food. But, I left hungry and spent $150 for two on lunch.

Great experience.
The venue looks beautiful and there is enough space between the tables to maintain privacy despite the number of seats. Also the light is perfect, ideal both for business or romantic dinners.
The food: extraordinary. Complex but clean flavours will surprise you.

Valentines prix fix was ridiculously expensive for the tiny amount of food we received. Service was terrible. Would not repeat on Valentines Day.

Great food and drinks. Service was very good and ambiance was fine, just steep for what you get. Can get equal quality food for better value in Manhattan. But now my gf can brag a lil so I’m happy. This isn’t news to anyone from NYC.

Nothing special at all. Our server(s) was never really around when we needed her/him. Food is overpriced and there was nothing special about it. You’re paying for the name.

It was my first time to the new location. I had been to the old more intimate location in Tribeca. As expected, the food was amazing. For the a large restaurant, it was not too noisy and the service was good. My only complaint is when I received the telephone call to confirm my reservation the representative from Nobu informed me that I would need to finish my dinner by 8:30pm. It just a little tacky and put it the category of Applebees. Of course, my dinner was over by 8:30pm and I had a cocktail, starter, entree and dessert. Whoever is making such statements at Nobu and cheapening such a quality restaurant with a superb reputation.

The food was just as good as it always is but the service was subpar. Staff was completely lacking which put a damper on what was a great dinner. Water glasses were almost always empty, we had to beg for cocktails. Very frustrating experience. I will return just with lower expectations.

Brought 9 friends with me and highly regret the experience. To start ... I’ve been to Nobu ... many tines. Our visit last night may be my last. What happened the the black miso cod? Used to be my Nobu staple. We sent back 2 orders .... twice. No offer to make it up to us. I ended eating 1/2 of a friend’s appetizer. Overdone and dry. Took my martini before I had finished it ... was about 1/3 left ... so complained and received a comped drink. Service was spotty. Venue is gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. But honestly the fish at Haru down the street would have been a better choice for last night. Maybe it was just an off night. But for the prices we paid, I will question going back again.

The black cod with miso was perfectly cooked with a delicate balance of seafood and sweetness that created a dish that was unforgettable and such a pleasure.

Beautiful ambiance. You have the option to eat upstairs, which is average, or go downstairs where the setting is trendy, creative and original. The food was excellent, but came with a high price tag.

Food was very good, as expected, and the service was helpful as well. The one aspect that left me cold was the reservation process. I made a reservation on open table, received an open table reminder 3 days prior (okay), received a text from Nobu two days prior asking that I confirm (mostly okay) and received a phone call one day prior letting me know that they received the confirmation, but that they may need the table by 9:15p due to a second seating (not okay, weird/rude). I asked if that meant we would be asked to leave at 9:00p and they assured me they would never do that . . . .

Great booking for a birthday dinner. We appreciated the excellent service, tasty dishes, and stunning interior design.
We focused on “Nobu’s classics”: miso black cod, yellowtail sashimi, rock shrimps. We were not disappointed.
The restaurant could turn into quite a scene, with attractive women dressed to impress and “selfies” to capture the outfits :)
