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.

We were rushed and food was removed from table quickly and the best part was them turning the lights on to get everyone to leave

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!

This place was beautiful I had a great experience. I honestly thought the cuisine would be a little more put together instead of sides however I do understand the Japanese traditional dishes. Overall I did enjoy myself !

I had the pleasure of traveling out to NYC for a long weekend and made sure I hit Nobu! It didn't disppoint! The miso cod, the spicy tuna on fried rice, the sushi, and the fun drinks were amazing. Covid definitely hasn't effected their quality or service!

Being my first time at Nobu I believe it was an overall enjoyable experience. For starters we got the Shisito sea salt which was absolutely delicious. We then got the Sushi Selection, Salmon and Lobster tacos and a couple of nigiris. The quality of the fish was superb and the tacos were pretty good as well. The only downfall being the fact that our drinks were forgotten so we had to remind them mid dinner.

All I can say is wow! We had an absolutely fantastic experience at Nobu Downtown. Come prepared to spend and indulge. Food was absolutely top notch start to finish. Highly recommend the Toro sushi and new style Wagyu beef. Our server David made great recommendations and the service was on point. We celebrated our 5 year anniversary and I must say this was the perfect dinner, one of our all time favorites. We can't wait to be back!

The restaurant was great and the food for the most part, was wonderful. The portions were small-plate to a fault, which forced me to order more.

I have been to Nobu in the past and also know that you must pay a premium, a $300 dinner for 2 with my daughter who is 17 and does not drink, $300 is clearly poor value.

I would only recommend Nobu for special occasions, and would also warn about what could easily become a four to five hundred dollar dinner.
