Nobu Fifty Seven, the first uptown New York location for 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 Hollywood film producer Meir Teper. The restaurant showcases Nobu's signature new style Japanese cuisine with classic dishes such as Tiradito Nobu Style and Black Cod Miso, and the hibachi table. The restaurant received three stars from the New York Times.

Designed by David Rockwell, Nobu Fifty Seven evokes fluidity and the imagery of an Asian river with curves and details of abalone shell chandeliers, sliced bamboo stalks in terrazzo tiles, scorched ash tables and Japanese quilt fabric. Sake barrels imported from Japan tower over the first floor bar counter as diners make way to the upstairs dining room. Burnished woods, rich hues and soft lighting create an ambiance of elegance and refinement.

Great, enjoyed the bar, met a man from Romania and then my date arrived, we sat down and ordered a sake that was fantastic (honestly the highlight of the meal). So I ordered the shrimp and lobster with spicy lemon something, my girl ordered the soft shell crab watermelon thing. So my meal was ok, not worth the price tag. I got half a lobster, not even a whole tail and a ridiculous amount of mushrooms, like bruh. The crab was great!! It came in a sauce and watermelon thing, I had to mix my meal with hers to enhance the flavor, like wth. So in conclusion my dinner was ok barely good. I can do better on the streets.

Waited a long time for this experience and it was amazing. The Omakase 57 tasting menu provided some of the best, if not the best, sushi we have ever eaten. The menu progression from cold to warm dishes made perfect sense and added a sense of sophistication to the meal. If you are thinking about visiting, you won't be disappointed.

Had dinner with a friend from AZ and told our waiter Daniel to just make it happen. He delivered! Awesome service, great sashimi sushi flavor profiles. Food was fantastic, service was impeccable.

Nobu is one of the best spots in midtown for fun dinner or drinks after work. I like the ambience and Lychee martini is always good! Cheers!

US Open finals. Busy, so kitchen overtaxed, and timing of food bad, miso soup came 10 minutes after sushi, and entree took 30 minutes between each plate even though we had a deadline on table to vacate by 9. Typical midtown dining experience that there are plenty of customers to take your spot, so no real attention. Still, the black sea bass miso lived up to its reputation as a signature dish, the grade of sushi was not up to expectations. Perhaps the original Nobu is worth a cab to Tribeca.

While we love Nobu each and every time we go, on this last night there, a mouse ran by our table under our feet. Needless to say it put a damper on the meal and the experience. i would have a lot of trouble recommending it again, especially since once the waiters saw the mouse we were merely treated to one bottle of sake. that was the consolation for having a mouse run by us.

The waitress forgot our order twice and she was never around. Also we didn’t get the warm towel and the complementary dish like the rest of the tables around us. Awful service. I went to Nobu with my daughter to celebrate her first show in NYFW and I was very disappointed with the service.

Different from other Nobu’s (Miami, Malibu. Vegas) Worst Nobu I’ve ever been to. It was very loud due to music playing, chairs were worn, and the waitress kept disappearing for long periods. We probably should’ve sat at the sushi bar for better service.

I was disappointed that I was not given one of my preferred waiters on my last visit to Nobu fifteen. I told them it was my birthday and two of my preferred servers had the night off, but one of them was working and yet I was given a brand new server who was adequate at best. However Liam saved the night by coming by my table and wishing me a happy birthday and taking pictures with our phones. He salvaged the night because I go to Nobu fiftyseven not just for the amazing food, but the service is usually equally amazing. We spend thousands of dollars there every year so please continue to make your diners are treated like kings and queens.

We always love Nobu 57, but this past weekend wasn’t a good experience. All because of disinterested server who didn’t seem to want to be at work (Labor Day weekend - she seemed put out to be there). For what we spend (and don’t get me wrong, the food is totally worth it) we don’t need the indifferent attitude.

TERRIBLE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. Everything we ordered was just awful. Such a disappointment for my 50th birthday. For what they charge, a certain quality of food and ambience is expected. We should have walked out after we saw the bug crawling across our table! The waitress killed it. After that they continually kept returning to wipe our table with the a rag - that was unacceptable for the $$$$ this restaurant has been categorized as. Please reconsider if you are planning to reserve here - so many amazing restaurants in NYC. After paying $400, we ordered a take out pizza from John’s. It was amazing.
