    Our server Annie was incredible. Authentic and friendly. Very attentive and made amazing recommendations. The only downside to the visit was the hosts walking around with iPads and tracking when tables were finishing. It was noticeable and made it uncomfortable- as if we needed to rush. Next was noise level. It was loud. Beyond that it was a great experience.

    Waited forever at our table and finally had to ask to be served water. Then waited again and had to ask for menus same with the desert menu. Shiitake mushroom salad was good along with the black cod miso but everything else was just eh. Very disappointing

    Second time here and we got to try dishes we didn't the first time. Loved the Chilean Sea Bass that was slightly fried - recommended by our Waiter. In fact, most of our dishes were recommended by our Waiter, who was fantastic and my family loved all the Wagu, fresh sushi, veggies and we still had room for dessert!

    This is a wonderful taste of Japan in a lovely downtown location. The service is excellent and the food is likewise . It can get a little loud and the quarters can be a tight (as is typical of Manhattan) but you will be rewarded with a great meal.

    As one who’s often disappointed with the quit food and/or the general dining experience in NYC, Nobu stands out for me. A truly memorable meal - once again - from the attentive service starting with when we entered till the last morsel of the stunning miso based dessert. Of course Nobu is a premium destination with pricing that is consonant. But this a bang for the buck visit always. I will definitely return to enjoy the Yellowtail with Jalapenos and the Miso Caramel Bon Bon, among other items . This was a maiden voyage for my dining partner who also came away enthralled. Sumptuous elegance!!!

    Overall it was a good experience. However I felt rushed and the service was great and and puzzling. They did an awesome job with an allergy, but I felt rushed, they were taking away beer and wine glasses before they were finished and constantly removing dishes. If I paying top dollar for the food please don’t rush me to turn the table over.

    My experience at Nobu was great. From the moment I stepped in, the ambiance was fantastic. The food, particularly the quality of the fish, was unparalleled - each dish perfectly prepared. The steak was cooked to absolute perfection, tender and flavorful. The servers were attentive and professional. Despite a minor hiccup where the chef mixed up an order, the staff immediately fixed it. Top-notch service.

    The service was not attentive at all which I wouldn’t expect at an establishment with that price point. They left money on the table by not getting drinks until 45 minutes after we arrived and not having great follow up. The food is always good but the service should match.

    Our anniversary experience was perfect! This was our first time attending and we were met with a lot of care and a lot of great service. Our waitress was always there to answer our questions and the bus lady (Alexa) was very meticulous with her work. They both are credited for making our night perfect. We’ll be coming back one day!

    I have dined at a lot of different NOBu establishments I will say our server was outstanding I believe his name was Sergei, give him a raise he’s so kind and patient and didn’t make us feel rushed! He made great recommendations I enjoyed all the sides,sushi and desserts! The ambience here was nice and loved the overall vibe! We had some delicious desserts to finish off the dinner! Overall everything was great but most definitely our server was the best part of the evening! I definite recommend going here and getting seated in his section!

    They suddenly took all of the food while we were still eating. They asked if we wanted to order anythig else we said no and then suddenly 3 man came and took all the food i remind you the fish was untouched, there were a lot of sushi on the plates, and they took it. Also the server women was so mean. She approached us 5 times to ask for of we decided after i told her 10 times we were waiting our friends!! She then starts staring at my face saying “i’ll wait till you order drinks” first of all maybe i dont want drinks second of all i told you i am waiting for a friend to arrive.

    I’ve been to a fair few Nobu’s across the world and this one has probably been the most disappointing. The food was not that great and not nearly as flavourful as it usually is. The service was very slow, we waited around 30 minutes for a drink and there was no soy sauce on the table. When we asked for the soy sauce it took about 20 minutes to arrive. Not ideal as I was celebrating a birthday. The cauliflower was really good however.
