“Good food, but slow service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Having eaten at Nobu in Vegas, I was looking for another good meal. Well, the food was good, but NYC falls short of Vegas from a service standpoint. Yes the food was good, especially the Black Cod with miso sauce. The miso soup and the Bento Chocolate box for dessert was very good. If you are here, it is good food, but for a better experience, go to Budakkan, great food and good service.

“Fantastic but staff could be nicer.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We went to Nobu with some friends for lunch and had the most amazing meal. The sushi was great and I had the Nobu signature black cod which was just divine. We were there with a new born baby asleep in a pram and the waiters were obviously not very pleased with that even though she slept the whole way.

“Delicious food as usual, disappointing ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

I cannot help but praise the food at Nobu, I do not even like oysters and I loved all 3 I was served during the everlasting tasting menu. We actually did not finish our dessert with a tasty chocolate cake and ice (I think they were aiming for a chocolate fondant, but it was more like a well done cake… either way it tasted, like the rest of the meal, delicious). I wish the place would be more like Nobu in Milan, where you have the bar on the ground floor as the centre point and tables around, making the place a buzzing, happening scene. Here, it felt more like a proper restaurant more suited for a couple or a business meeting and not for three women who love to people watch and be in a lively environment. I actually remember Nobu Next Door to be more fun a couple of years ago, but we were perhaps more lucky with the people on the next table. Next time I think I will go for Nobu Next Door, just to have more fun while eating but still have superior food!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Perfect location for a business lunch meeting. Not too loud with good lighting so you can easily run through a presentation. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and efficient.
