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.

Not only was the food fantastic but our server, Tom, was the best waiter we have ever encountered - and we're old !!! If you love sushi this is hands down the best food ever. Be sure and ask for Tim who personally chose every dish for us based on our taste. He asked us a few smart questions such as raw or cooked, hot and spicy then proceeded to bring us course after course of cold and hot dishes. Will return for sure !!!

You can do better! Corporate eatery, huge noisy space, interior looks cheap. Sushi not bad, but nothing you can't get anywhere in NYC. Waiter haphazard, overcharged us, $104 for 24 oz of house saki?

When we reached the place, we were wondering what to eat . Wish i remember the name of the guy who helped us. While we were browsing the menu , i said we are pure vegetarians. He just said - "Ma'am , leave it on me ." I ate th best food ever . Different variety and great taste. Few dishes to eat if you are a vegetarian -
1. Tofu new style
2.Kamameshi shitake
3. Tomato Ceviche
4.Taco Vegetable

A classic restaurant to eat, to see people and being viewed by other people. Food, as always, amazing. Don't loose the codfish and the sushis.
