Nobu Downtown Ratings and Reviews
This is the second time that I had lunch here during restaurant week. Last time I had a great experience but this time not so much. The service was rushed and bordering on rude. The quality of the sushi not great. I felt that both the quality of the food and the service was reduced due to restaurant week. In my opinion, if the restaurant is not going to do a good job with restaurant week then they should not participate.
I went with my fiance during Restaurant Week so it was a good value.
The Black Cod Miso on Limestone Lettuce might be the best thing I've ever had in my entire life. It was slightly sweet and had great texture.
Arctic Char - I found it to be very salty when eaten with the skin, and after that saltiness, relatively tasteless when I just ate the meat. It was good, but not great.
Chicken with Black Sesame - This was quite good and had a large portion size. Recommended.
I'm not sure exactly what it was but it might be the second best thing I've ever had. Some sort of mango pina colada something something. Looking at the menu maybe it was Mango Yuzu Champagne.
At night I saw Sarah Jessica Parker when p
Went for NYC restaurant week, and after reading reviews that seemed to be all over the place--I was skeptical. Nobu delivered. I had the sashimi salad which included two pieces of seared tuna (tuna tataki) with your normal salad offerings: arugula, baby spinach and a perfect amount of matsuhisa (acidic like ponzu) dressing. Entree was the arctic char with crispy baby spinach. It was lovely. They cooked it medium-rare and it came with a small portion of rice. Flavor was definitely there, albeit a bit subtle. Dessert was the winner though: pineapple custard with anise, and a pineapple foam with a crumble(forgot which type) on top. It wasn't overly sweet, but it was so delicious I almost ordered another!
Service was very good but hard to fla
My favorite is the black cod miso, it is absolutely delicious. All the dishes that I had was fantastic. I had the artic char with spinach as my entre and it was tasty. The food at nobu is fantastic. The service is good but not spectacular. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Nobu was lovely looking but the food, during restaurant week, was poor at best. They added food that was not on their usual menu. My chicken was served under-cooked..returned to the kitchen, then brought back to me unateable: chewy colorless chicken covered in a black sauce..ugly looking and tasting. And their apptizer was vut up tomatoes in some sauce. They couldn't get me back back.
The staff, service etc were good - our waiter could have been more approachable - but everyone was very nice and accommodating. Especially when my friend spilled her water all over the table - they were incredibly patient. There wasn't anything remarkable and memorable about the food. I'm not sure if this is because it was a restaurant week menu. There are other places I've tried that have restaurant week menus that were good enough to entice me to go back and pay full price. Nobu's restaurant food menu won't bring me back. However, when all's said and done, I had a nice experience there.
I expect their food is in outstanding quality. I tried many different cuisine and Japanese food is one of my favor. It is quite disappointed. The grill chicken with sesame sauce was over burn and had charcoal taste bitterness. I would not recommend this to my friend if you are looking for a high end restaurant quality. Dessert is a pudding with coconut cream. It is too sweet and not impressive. The appetizer is too salty which is black cod in miso sauce.
The cooked food (miso cod, arctic char) was FANTASTIC. The sushi was mediocre (sashimi salad, sushi assortment, uni sushi). The dessert was horrible. Their bluefin toro was awful (chewy and hard at nearly $18 per piece -- this stuff is supposed to be like butter!!) and their baby abalone was not the freshest. Overall, I'd avoid this place for true Japanese fare like sushi/sashimi, and stick with the "fusion" dishes if you have to dine here. Overall, not worth the money. There are much better Japanese places in NYC.
One of my favorite Sushi Places of all time, I first went there when Chef Morimoto was slicing and dicing but have been back since he has left and it is still just as amazing. The sushi is so fresh and so delicious and the service is wonderful. I have been there for both lunch and dinner and would recommend highly for either.
Great Wine and Sake list and excellent entres as well, a must for out of towers
We went here, since we heard it was a good place some time ago, but the night we went there to have dinner, it wasn't that good. The food looked nice on the plate, but the taste was very boring. Some things didn't taste at all. Not at all worth it, if you go there to eat something for the taste and not just the look.
We are still in NYC and so far Nobu was the worst pick so far, we found a lot of much better places to eat great food. Would not recommend this to anyone actually.
I've been to Nobu in the past and after raving about my prior experience, I chose to take a larger group there for a special occasion. Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations. I went to the Hudson Street location and the food just tasted like they were training a new chef. It lacked the flavor, the temperature and the texture I was used to having there. My absolute favorite dish, the Miso Cod, was underwhelming! It wasn't hot and fresh and seemed oddly over marinated. I may try the 57th street location before completely removing this restaurant from my favorites list.
