Overall a thoroughly unspecial/mediocre evening. As it was our first visit, we asked the server for suggestions. We went there for sushi, and wound up steered toward several hot and cold dishes before getting to sushi. Rock lobster tempura was fantastic. Black cod was sweet enough to be dessert. The sushi was the best part, as expected, however because we were dissuaded from sticking to the sushi menu, we weren't able to enjoy it as much.
Super loud environment, which would be fine if you weren't trying to talk over the person seated next to you; which was akin to subway seating proximity. Skip the brand name and go somewhere that focuses on quality.
A terrific letdown for an engagement/birthday celebration.
Our waiter provide menu suggestions that were very interesting, great food quality worth to visit. Plates are small so plan to order 2 -3 plates by person.
When dining at upscale restaurants (and although Nobu Next Door is the casual version, it still boasts the same menu as Nobu) my husband and I order the chef's tasting menu as a general rule. Well, Nobu was a complete disappointment. It wasn't bad, but it was very uninventive. For the price, I want more than mackerel, miso soup and same old, same old. Felt like the sushi 101 instead of a chef's tasting menu. This I write as we were recently blown away at Morimoto in Philly. I'd say skip Nobu. NYC has amazing sushi at half the cost.
Wonderful experience! This was our first time dining in New York, and it could not have been better! If you're brave, take on the Omakase menu and prepare to be taken on an adventure! Will definitely return.
The tables against the booth are WAY too close to each other. Feel like I was having dinner with the two separate parties on each side of our table. Food was excellent as always.
We celebrated a friend's birthday and this was a perfect splurge that felt like a celebration. The food is amazing. Must try the yellowtail with jalapeno and miso cod. The rock shrimp tempura is a little heavier but also pretty amazing.
It's Nobu! Great food and great service. Went there with my wife and daughter for her birthday dinner. Everything was amazing!
Great experience - everything from the food to the waitstaff. Amazing
Going to Nobu is always a treat, and I "treat" it as such. The entire wait staff has a great memory and always make you feel welcome. Looking forward to going to their new location downtown.
Excellent service as always
