While we had a very nice time, we felt rushed. Extending a reservation to 2 hours would have made the dining experience more enjoyable.

Sushi was good but the crispy rice and tuna taco appetizers were scrumptious

Wow! We asked the waiter, David to choose our dinner for us and everything he picked was amazing! Highly recommend letting the waiter pick for you - IMO they know what’s good and what goes well together! Only thing we said was we like fish and seafood (no meat) and he took care of the rest. Edamame choclo (spicy, smoky with a Peruvian corn), Yellowtail with jalapeño (one of their specialities), oysters, shredded artichoke salad, Black miso cod butter (eat like a wrap), soft shell crab with watermelon chunks (wow!!! - seasonal dish) and roasted Chilean sea bass & cauliflower with Jalapeño dressing. We topped it all off with the bento box dessert (Valrhona dark chocolate fondant & Imperial matcha gelato) and downtown monkfruit cheesecake (cheesecake, strawberry coulis, black sesame). Can’t wait to go back again soon!

I would like to start off by saying this is my first time writing a review, but I felt it is needed. Me and two other people went to this Nobu about a week ago very excited to try this restaurant and I am very disappointed of my experience. I have never felt so rushed before at a restaurant than I did at Nobu, the waiter would not keep his eyes off of us waiting for us to finish our last bite so he can take the plates. They even cleaned the table while we were still sitting as in they wiped it down and everything. I was planning on ordering more food but I took that as in a “get out”. He was a very cold waiter and I seen him giggling while whispering to another person while looking at our table I have never felt so disrespected. Especially for it being Nobu I had high hopes on the staff but it was 1/5 for me. The food overall was okay nothing special I have tasted better. Also I would like to mention that where we were seated was not pleasant there was two sides in the room one with people and one with no one, our table was placed on the empty side of the room haha. I didn’t book this reservation so far in advance for me to be sitting in a area where it’s alone and dark especially when I have seen tables available on the other side. Overall I really wished I remembered his name but I would like to just say Nobu teach your stuff manners (it was just the waiter that I got everyone else was great!).

We have eaten here when visiting New York. The food is always great & our server last night was outstanding. We had the best fatty tuna sushi EVER, absolutely EVER. It's way downtown but worth the taxi ride.

The quality of food at Nobu is unmatched. I really appreciate clean ingredients and the flavorful yet light saucing that is utilized. I have been to several Nobu locations and have enjoyed all of them immensely. The attention to detail has not waned at all since the inception of the Nobu brand.

It was my first Nobu experience and surely I will be back. Although, when booking my reservation for dinner to celebrate a friends birthday. I wish I was more informed of the seating options. I felt for a Nobu experience the area we sat in didn’t seem fit and did not meet our expectation. Also, when I asked my server how the seating worked, he was unhelpful and could care less in regards to our concerns. He was not attentive to us during our time there and took way too long to check on our table between courses. There was a larger table that he seemed preoccupied with which felt as if me and my guest were neglected. It also felt as though he was trying to sell us but hardly came around to see how we liked it. The food was amazing, I’ll be back but not to NY Downtown. And certainly I will know what to ask for when I book at Nobu.

I would not recommend reserving the bar/counter area. You’re basically in a lobby and you lose a lot of the experience. The food is fine but you really don’t get a lot of what you’re paying for with Nobu. I bet most New Yorkers know this...
