    Amazing food. I wish I had a second round of everything. The scallops and roasted sea bass are my favorite dishes in the city. Service was excellent, thank you Kenji. Ambience is great. Experience was perfect.

    The service and food were impeccable. Cocktails were fabulous, too. The ONLY thing that did not live up to Nobu's high standards were the flowers at the hostess stand. Stems were broken, buds were dead. It was truly the only fault I could find with a delightful evening.

    Everything we had was in phenomenal. Any time we are up from Dallas we try to stop into Nobu NYC. The atmosphere is always electric and every dish is top notch. It’s not cheap, but it’s consistently as good as you’ll find from a quality, taste and presentation standpoint. Worth the splurge!

    We went for my brother's birthday, whom is diabetic. We wanted to have a diabetic friendly dessert as they offer one usually but they were out of it and didn't do anything to wish him a happy birthday so that was a bit disappointing

    Hostesses could’ve done a better a job at being more hospitable and friendly. Also having 3 hostesses greeting guests is not very welcoming and rather intimidating especially when one of their demeanors especially couldve been more welcoming

    I've been going to Nobu for many many years. I have gone to this Nobu Downtown location many times in the last year or two as well. As always the food was absolutely incredible. Some great dishes I would highlight are the Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Rock Shrimp Tempura with Creamy Spicy Sauce, and Rib Eye with Yuzu Honey Truffle. Getting lots of sushi and cut rolls is also a must too. The fish quality is incredibly high and the fish are so tasty. – I did want to write a review today since I did notice that on some dishes the serving size of some dishes have been cut back since I've even gone to Nobu even in the last a few months ago. Maybe we just were unlucky with our meal but it did seem for us at least the portions of Rock Shrimp Tempura with Creamy Spicy Sauce and Rib Eye with Yuzu Honey Truffle seemed to have been downsized by at least 30% or more. While I love Nobu and think the restaurant is really delicious, I do want to point out that it is possible that Nobu Downtown has started downsizing their portions which if it is the case would be disappointing.

    Dinner was excellent. It always is. We had the crispy tuna, yellow tail with jalapeño, the sashimi salad, spicy shrimp tempura, mini tacos and the miso cod along with a couple of other small plate dishes. Everything was delicious! The service is always excellent and the vibe is great. It’s a favorite.

    Nobu has a historical legacy of earned excellence and elegance in Japanese cuisine. It's been 9 years since dining at their San Diego location ( which was amazing ) and my Wife and I were not disappointed at all. Front of the house staff greeted us when we checked in and were pleasant, professional, and projected positive energy. Many "well known" restaurants are successful at hiring front of the house staff that excel at portraying an air of pomposity, arrogance, and sanctimonious Marie Antionette on Zanax customer service skills. Not NOBU Downtown NYC. They set the bar for greeting customers, making them feel not only welcome but special. The Service Staff: Our server's name was Lisa. She's been with Nobu for 12 years and it showed. She knew the menu like the back of her hand, and helped us not only navigate it to our flavor profile preferences, but she knew where the food came from , why and how Nobu selects their product, and knew when to check on us and when to leave us to the food. While I am 100% sure the rest of the waitstaff at Nobu is phenomenal. we had Lisa and she was spectacular. The support staff working with Lisa was equally phenomenal. Our table was attended to on a level equal to one to two star Michelin restaurants I've dined at. They are focussed, engaged, yet most time you'd never know they are there while you are enjoying your meal. Perfect. The Food Lineup: Yellowtail Jalapeno -A great starter. Yellowtail was very fresh. Shishito Peppers in Sea Salt-Very good, but hard to screw up. Salmon Tartare with Caviar* Incredible. The sauce is unique and Fab. Lobster Taco's - Kind of a let down. fried crispy shell suffocates the dish. Mushroom Soup - Wonderful. Warm Mushroom Salad - FRESH & Unique. Wagyu Dumplings*INSANE..UMAMI. FLAVOR BOMB. A MUST. . 6 Oz A5 Wagyu Beef from Japan. Had the Tataki style. Should have done steak style Black Cod with Miso *Their signature dish. Cooked impeccably. DESSERT: MISO CARAMEL ICE CREAM BON BON

    The food was very good and the restaurant itself is beautiful. We went with the Omakase, which seems to have gone up in price recently (now over $200). The food was great but for two people (2 omakase and four drinks + tip), we spent nearly $700. The food was good but not $700 good. Glad to have experienced it but will probably go elsewhere the next time we want a special celebration meal.

    Never going back to Nobu. Never sit in bar area. Complete rip off $560 for 3 people. Nobu has become crap and not remotely good quality. They sat us in the bar area and we could have been at any hotel or bank lobby. Only sit downstairs at tablets thats much more cozy. After living in NYC for 30 yrs there are neighborhood sushi restaurants that are better everywhere.

    We are big sushi fans so dinner tonight was high on everyone’s list and it completely fit the bill. Absolutely beautiful restaurant. We sat right near the sushi bar which was amazing to see. Our appetizers we’re amazing. The spicy edamame (we got two!) and crispy rice with spicy tuna were both delicious and beautifully presented! Our sushi was superbly fresh—and the specialty soy with lemon was a pleasant surprise. And very tasty cocktails as well. Just overall amazing!
