Nobu Downtown Ratings and Reviews
Amazing food but service is awful. I think I was there during a shift change - Staff couldn't be less interested, I had to flag down multiple people just to get my check and the person who brought me the check (not my server) couldn't figure out how to split the check, made 2 mistakes before I had to walk back to the service station and tell him and the captain just forget out it and put it all on 1 bill. Great venue, great food...just be prepared to wait.
This is a very nice place great area. But I feel as though the food is way overpriced for what they give you. The food is average and worth half of what the price is. The service also is a bit slow because the servers are all over the place, they give refills and don’t even say they charge until you see it on your receipt. Also I didn’t get the price for my dessert until I saw it at the end. It is a very fancy restaurant good for an anniversary or to go with your significant other. Not worth the hype. The scenery is good though.
Noisy. Impersonal and hurried service. Felt more like the Cheescake Factory than an elegant dinner. It is painfully obvious that table-turnover takes precedence over the diner’s experience. We felt rushed from the moment we were seated. We will pass next time.
Girlfriend and I went here for a Christmas dinner. It was our first time going to such an upscale place, and Nobu had been hyped up for the longest time. Needless to say, Nobu did not disappoint. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Can't wait to find an excuse to come back.
Service could not be better. Well informed and attentive service made the experience of cutting-edge food that much better. Expect to pay for innovation, though. We budgeted $70 a piece for lunch. By the time we were through with coffee and dessert (glad we did) plus tip--cost us $200 for the two of us. Both of us are picky foodies, and we like new and interesting experiences. Nobu was a hit.
This place lost its soul. Japanese tradition thrown away for quick financial gain and bling bling. Only an option for big parties, the atmosphere is too loud for a romantic diner. The food stays OK, though far from exceptional. Service correct but not cordial. This can’t be Nobu Matsuhisa’ s dream, but must be his banker’s.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. It is by far the best sushi you will have. After they closed the Tribeca location, I was a bit hesitant but they have outdone himself. The layout, the design, the art, or perfect. My only comment is it is a bit pricey, but you are down by the financial district , And right by the World Trade Center. Really great location.
I loved the intimacy of Nobu and Nobu Next Door when it was in Tribeca. When Nobu Downtown called to confirm my reservation they told me I had a limited time and that they may take my table away, which I thought was extremely rude. Our waiter was rude and hovering over the table waiting for us to finish and leave, and when we said we were done with the food that was on our table, he brought us the check and didn’t ask if we wanted dessert or any more drinks. Used to be my favorite place to dine when in NYC, and unfortunately I probably won’t go again.
We were recommended Nobu by multiple people! We were so excited to try it! The food was pretty good but service was not good for a high end restaurant. We loved the yellowtail and the crab tempura, sooo amazing! The beef entree was just okay, undercooked the first time then over cooked the next. All in all you could spend a good $300-400 here but I’m not sure if it’s worth it.
We have been going to Nobu since the week they opened on the corner of Hudson and Franklin in 1994. It’s been a mainstay throughout our lives and they never disappoint! The most recent dinner was for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The Black Miso Cod and Matsuhisa Salad are our favorites but everything is delicious. We tried a bunch of new dishes including the truffle artichokes. Service is the best in the city by far. We have now made our children fans. We were very sad that the original location had closed since we have many great memories there, but the new space is beautiful. Can’t wait to go back!
