Food was amazing. Staff was very sweet. Even the bathrooms were nice. A little pricey, but definitely worth it. Best sushi I've had in the city

Went for a business dinner - we were a party of 8, seated downstairs. Restaurant was loud and crowded (what pandemic?). Food was great but a bit challenging to manage ordering due to noise level and needing to view menu on phones only (again due to COVID). No idea how much it cost because a colleague paid but I think it was $$$$$+. Super fresh fish and delicious desserts.

The location and restaurant itself were very pretty. The food was good but the service was even better. The waiters are very attentive and the food came out quickly. The food was definitely overpriced but that's to be expected for the area. I must say their desserts were terrific, especially the cinnamon donuts with vanilla gelato. Overall it was fine but I don't know if I would go back.

Nobu is worth going to for a special event - ours was an anniversary. The quality of everything nearly lives up to the price-point but our sushi rolls weren't THAT much better than most other sushi places on a good night. The saki was really good too! Cheers!

The starters were very good so the desert. main course was less impressive. The price did not justify the quality of the food. The wine by glass was extremely expensive.
Too many calls and text to make sure we are arriving and we been not warned about it before.

This is my third time dining at Nobu, always amazing service, delicious food and good vibes. Jun was our waitress for the evening and the wait staff from the hostess to the servers all went above and beyond with accommodations and made our experience that much better. Felt very safe dining and the restaurant followed all the protocols.

We ordered the rock shrimp, black cod, rib eye, baby corn and all the dishes were wonderful. Highly recommend and will be coming back.

The prices increased but the portion size was reduced. Everything was great overall. The Creamy Spicy Crab was a much small portion from the last time I was there. I order this dish every visit. It was noticeable.

Very disappointing. My son and I went to celebrate a big birthday with my daughter. I spent a long time when making the reservation asking that when I ask for the check, can they bring one dessert with one candle in it. Didn't care which dessert but wanted to make it a special experience. When we came in they greeted her at the front desk with a 'happy birthday', so the notation was made. When I asked for the check, that's all I got.....an expensive check for lovely food but for a special occasion that didn't feel that special

Overall, the food was great, the drinks were great, we had a great time. The suggestions by our waiter were also great and on point. Everything was delicious (except maybe the Wagyu tacos were a little disappointing). However, the one big issue we had the whole time was the persistence of our waiter to constantly push extra dishes and drinks onto our table. He tended to interrupt us mid conversation to ask if we need more food and then when we did order he would persistently try and add on other dishes. We were there to have a good time and enjoy our food at our own pace and that was very difficult to do given the experience. In the end we left feeling very full and satiated and honestly we could not have nearly finished the much larger amount of food he was trying too get us to order. I've been to Matsuhisa before and the food quality here was exactly what I was expecting from a Chef Nobu restaurant. However, the service side of things was very different and undesirable and is a bit of a deterrent from returning again.

First off, the meal was incredible. The flavor explosions were beyond what I ever expected. Forget the price for a minute and just understand that this will be a mind blowing experience that will take you to another planet. Yes I said that.
Holy smokes this is something orgasmic that made me want to come back again, and again and again.

Good food, nice atmosphere, lots of people and very loud. Definitely didn’t feel comfortable and the service wasn’t what is expected at a restaurant like this. It’s like the servers are doing you a favor by taking your order and following up with you. The customer is the one doing the business a favor by choosing the restaurant to dine. When restaurant’s like this get too popular or famous, this tends to happen.

My husband and I went for our anniversary and I noted it on my reservation to get a nice table, at first I didn’t like my table because it was near the traffic where the waiters walk and people going towards the stairs but it turned out fine. We ordered the crispy rice and while it tasted it good the portion is too small and not enough for 2 people plus the rice is soo sticky gets on your teeth not worth ordering. Best to do the rock shrimp it’s amazing! Also the shrimp tempura roll is delicious. I got the sea bass with cauliflower the spicy avocado sauce was soo good with the cauliflower. It would have been nice if the sea bass had some sauce since it’s broiled but it was delicious too. My husband got the salmon very tasty and great! The best drink on the house is the pina martini 🍸 and the donut dessert was awesome!
