Description: 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.

Back to our old favorite haunts, Nobu doesn't disappoint, great all around.
Service is good, especially considering how busy the place gets.
Appetizers - Edamame were good and shishito peppers fantastic as usual. I got two spicy ones this time.
Yellowtail sahimi with jalapeno - incredible
Rock shrimp tempura with creamy ponzu - glorious
Sushi - fresh, well prepared, delicious!
Black cod with miso - good a s always though we've had it so many times, it now impresses a bit less.
Nobu always delivers a top dining experience.

We love the Nobu on Berkeley in London so wanted to give this one a try while visiting NYC. It's a different vibe than London but all our fave items are on the menu and the food was great. Excellent service and drink as well!

Because of Nobu, I wanted to become a sushi chef myself. Having said that, I couldn't wait to take my wife here and what a great experience. We both had the black miso cod which was excellent! His new style sashimi, a delight!
The only thing I didn't like was the lack of privacy, tables too close to each other. A great experience all together
