Really disappointing to not have the omakase option for meals. One of the best things about Nobu. I also think prices were increased but the sizes of the dishes were kept the same or slightly smaller- which is also disappointing but I understand given current environment (still don't love it). That being said the food was great. the service was ok- not bad not great.

Nobu never disappoints, the food was amazing. We have been here several times and there has not been even once or one item that was not up to par for the price. From the start with just the edemame was excellent to the end with dessert.

Pretty disappointed. Was seated across from the main room in what looked like a temporary dining area. People in t shirts and baseball hats, not the ambiance we expected for dinner. Sushi was average as were the crispy rice dishes we ordered. Probably would have been better off with entrees. "Ran out" of the cocktail we were drinking.

I am overly satisfied with my server and service overall. It was my best friends birthday and our server was extremely on point. He even assisted me with charging my phone. I would strongly recommend and come back again soon. Please provide the name of my server so I can request him next time. I also can’t wait to come back for another margarita and Wagyu dumplings, haha. Thanks again for everything! - Louis Cianciotto.

Our waiter was fantastic, food was excellent, drinks were great as well. Only thing that was upsetting/frustrating was the inability to enforce mask mandates within the dining area, and the few diners that are still inconsiderate enough to walk around with no mask. Other than that, I would absolutely recommend to a friend, but inform them of the possibility that someone may pass by your table with no mask. Hopefully they can get better at enforcement of the mask mandate, I have been to a FEW other fine dining restaurants in the city, which called out and enforced use of masks. It's possible, no matter who your guest are.

The service was great, from the seating to the serving staff. The food was enjoyable but for the price, nothing special. The fish and seafood are incredibly fresh, but not a ton of flavor or creativity. That with knowing how expensive it is turned it to a disappointing evening. I don't have an issue with the expense if the overall experience brings value and is memorable, that's why you go to the world famous Nobu.

Nobu Downtown now also occupies the space across the lobby. It is nice and open, fells very comfortable in terms of social distancing. The downside, however is the kitchen is remains downstairs in the main restaurant. Two of the hot items we ordered arrived room temperature or cold. The server was excellent, especially remedying the cold food.

My girlfriend and I went out for a date night. To be honest, I was expecting to leave hungry and poor, but I was wrong. The food was amazing and properly portioned. Everything tasted amazing, the drinks were delicious as well. I would definitely recommend and plan on going back.

The manager is absolutely incompetent, rude and useless. Nobu as usual has amazing food, service and cocktails, but the manager is rude and should be fired for someone who understands his job. He makes the entire Nobu experience go to waste.

Atmosphere, service, and overall dinner were absolutely amazing. Upon making the reservation, the restaurant staff was aware that it was for an anniversary dinner. They definitely made the night feel extra special, especially with the waitress wishing us a “Happy Anniversary” & also having it written on the dessert plate. It made our night!
