About
The first uptown New York location by legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, opened to much anticipation in the summer of 2005. Nobu's co-owners are his longtime partners: renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro, and producer Meir Teper. The restaurant showcases Nobu's signature New Style Japanese cuisine with classic dishes such as Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno and Black Cod Miso, and new creations from the wood burning oven and the hibachi table.

DURING THE VIRUS dining outdoors is spectacular as the tables are under the building overhang on 57th street and between the buildings between 56th and 57th street. Dinner was terrific, as always. Frankly, being able to eat outdoors on a nice night is a treat

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE We ordered a very special dinner at Nobu for my daughters 18th birthday that was to be delivered the next day between 6:30 and 7pm. The next day, Postmates sent a confirmation email saying the food would arrive at 7pm. I received a...text that they charged my card at 6:05pm. At 7:15pm, no food. I check my phone and see an email saying "Your order could not be completed and has been cancelled. Your account has not been charged and we apologize for the inconvenience." No phone number for customer service. I google for number and find one for merchants. I call and find customer service. They say sorry, there was an item that was not available so we canceled the order. I explained that it's my daughters 18th bday and this is a special dinner and to please get it back, without that item. "Sorry, nothing we can do". I call Nobu, speak to Jacklyn, who was super nice and explained that they are out of wagyu but she could get everything delivered, and express it and I said thank you so much. No food at 9pm. I call Nobu, no answer. I bike down there and nobody is there. NO SPECIAL BIRTHDAY DINNER. THANKS POSTMATES. THANKS NOBU.More

I have never even thought about writing a Yelp or a tripadvisor review of all the years it has been around but tonight actually drove me to open an account on both. I had heard of nobu all over there place and decided to give...it a try. I got the reservation for 4 and showed up on time. I am a sushi lover so if this is the place to be surely the sushi must be phenomenal. First of all it is not fine dining. I dressed up for the occasion but apparently everyone else in the restaurant must've got the memo that t shirts and sweats is totally fine. Ok forget about the crowd let's move on to the dingy atmosphere. It felt very cafeteria like and seemed to have a weird smell. As we looked around more we realized there while restaurant was filled to the gill with dust balls. I mean everywhere. You look up down left right and you can spot disgusting dust balls everywhere. The table top as soon as we put out elbows down we noticed how sticky it felt. As you can tell we were a already thinking it was gonna be a tough night. So the server comes and asks us if we wanted tap or bottled and we opted bottle to err on the safe side. We ordered several cocktails and for 20 i was thinking they better be spectacular. None of them stood out and i questioned even if they put alcohol in some the cocktails as they were so weak but i was not gonna spend another 20 on another watered down drink. We were finally given menus and my god the prices were ridiculous. So i started to order sushi cause surely the sushi must be the reason for these prices. As i started the server stops me and asks if we have ever dined there. I said no but we were more interested in sushi. Than she just starts going through a spiel of the menu which i guess was her job but afterwards i said we will stick to sushi. She seemed annoyed and left. 5 mins later she finally comes back and i order enough sushi for 4. I guess they were busy cause the sushi took a while but no worries there. All the staff looked depressing and tired. Out of nowhere a bunch of staff roll these huge circle tables around us and start changing table tops in a chaotic way it was rather nerve wracking. So the sushi comes out and i realize it was very average at best. Handrolls are supposed to be crunchy but all of them were soggy. Eek. We were hungry so we ate it all but paying 500 for a plate of sushi is ridiculous. Also they don't mention that a bottle of fiji costs 10$. Oh lord oh lord. Basically we did not see the waitress after the order till she tried to push desserts on us. I just asked for the check. This place needs a major overhaul and also i noticed the waitress giving a lot more attention to guests near us who apparently went with "nobu style of dining". It seems that this place does not care for the middle and lower class people who usually never spend 500 or more on dining normally. Maybe nobu should put that on the description. If you decide to dine anyway make sure you take a good look around. They keep it very dark in there i guess so you can't see how dingy and dirty the place is lol. We went to get pizza after for 20 $ and was much more satisfied. If you want good sushi there are many other places so do some research. Unfortunately i did not and suffered the consequences and a much lighter wallet.More

We very much liked the food at Nobu. Would recommend to order multiple small dishes before you order the main. Deserts are OK, not spectacular like the appetizers and main.

Had Dinner here with my family (2 adults, 2 teens age 15 and 17). My son (age 15) wanted to eat here after seeing a youtube video of KSI eating at Nobu las vegas. I did a lot of research before going. I was prepared...to do the tasting menu but followed the advice of other reviewers to listen to the servers. Our server did not push the omasake (also, the signature omakase didn't include the wagyu beef which we had to try according to my son and KSI) so I just asked her what to order, and ordered the dishes she recommended. All the dishes were shared. 1. Yellowtale with Jalapenos (1.5x order) 2. New style sashimi 3. salmon tartar with crispy rice 4. rock shrimp tempura 5. cod with miso we added on the - wagyu beef (3oz) - house roll - soft shell crab roll in the end we were not stuffed. but ok. Ordering a la carte costed less than the omakase. The rolls were just ok, and the salmon tartar with crispy rice wasn't anyone's favorite. So I would replace those 3 dishes. The other dishes were very good especially the yellowtail and new style sashimi. The kids didn't like any of the desserts so we just went to the corner store and had some ice cream. In the end it was a very nice dinner with the family.More

It’s a top quality Japanese restaurant. The food and the service are perfect. The environment is beautiful and chic. However, you really pay for it. It’s not a low or medium budget place. It’s an amazing place and one of the best I’ve eaten in...life.More

I visit Nobu 57 yearly every time I come to NYC for meetings. The sushi is always fantastic and they make a really good salad. Recently on Valentine’s Day three friends and I walked in hoping to eat at the sushi bar before a play....Of course, the place was packed and the hostess was not very encouraging about our ability to get seating in time for the play. She and a nearby waitress saw our obvious disappointment as we told her we always eat at Nobu every year. We were about to leave when she signaled us to wait. She said they would find something. We happily ate our wonderful sushi salad in a space for four by the bar. We were so happy and appreciative. I will always go back but next time will reserve a spot...More

Nobu is a legendary brand in the culinary world. I have been to Nobu 57 several times. Several times going to the same restaurant in New York City? That is breaking my pledge. I do not visit the same restaurant several times unless it is...exceptional. The exceptional are Gallagher Steak House, Jean Georges, Milos, Gramercy Tavern and some more. I made an exception in the case of Nobu because my family likes to visit this establishment. It is a great restaurant, undoubtedly but not worthy of repeated visits and earning 5 Stars on each visit. The novelty wears out and I start comparing the Nobu preparations to those of Momoya on Amsterdam Avenue. On like to like preparations Momoya stacks up on par with Nobu. Nobu 57 is 3 times more expensive than Momoya and that pinches when the memories of DOW dropping almost 4000 points in one week still remain fresh. Yes a visit to to Nobu 57 is a must for an exciting culinary experience but I am not sure if it deserves repeated visits when Momoya offers me a similar experience at one third the price. But then price is not a consideration in this city of hedge fund boys and girls. I ain’t in that category. Cheers and enjoy Nobu 57 Suresh Chawla Toronto, Canada.More
