As the first uptown New York location for legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, we opened with 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.

I have eaten at Nobu 57 a few times. The food is very good and the service is excellent.
It is a bit noisy, but not more than many other restaurants. My biggest criticism is the enormously high price - astronomical. This is a fine restaurant, but very poor value overall. Portions are small and prices are high. I will go there for an occasional small meal but have to stop bringing large parties there, as I have done, as it is not affordable.

Best place wow. If you have any dietary restrictions the waiter will help you order something off menu. For example, our server suggested king crab amanzu ponzu with tofu and it was delicious! We also got the rock shrimp tempura with white fish instead.

We haven’t been to Nobu in years and this was our first time at Nobu 57 uptown. It did not disappoint. The ambience was great and the drinks were fantastic and the food is as usual quite excellent and obviously not cheap. Our server was great. The only negative is that the portion sizes have gotten a little bit smaller over the years.if we are gonna pay $42 for a cod it should come with at least one included side dish like for example rice. But it’s New York City and if you’re going to spend a ton on dinner I can’t think of a better place to spend it.

Honestly. Way way overrated. Price wasn’t an issue, just disappointed with the food overall just wasn’t worth the money. I am a foodie and thought I would be WOW’d but nope. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Server was polite and explained all our options. Wish he came back to ask if we wanted a second glass of wine or at least refill our water once. That's the only negative but we'd go back for sure

Awful experience. It used to be one of the favorites places. It was the first time after the pandemic but has nothing to what Nobu used to be. The food was very greasy, you could taste cheap oil everywhere whether it was fish, rice or vegetables. The miso black cod used to be amazing but the one from Fresh direct actually tastes much better. Very poor quality, the waitress was always absent so actually there wasn’t any service.
Only restaurant left from previous Nobu, the quality of food and service is gone.

We had a great time here. Ate ‘outside’ in the structure built that has tables set into individual rooms with windows. There’s also a heating system connected to the rooms which was appreciated as the evening got cooler. Food was delicious. Definitely want to go back to experience indoor dining here one day.

The food was excellent, but service was very slow. Our meal took 3 hours for 4 people, with waiting 15 minutes between courses. We ordered quickly, but the kitchen must have been overwhelmed. We went through the majority of our meal without seeing our server (but the bussers and other support staff were attentive and excellent).

Food was delicious. Yellowtail jalapeño and the Kobe beef dumplings were phenomenal. Our server was on point. With his recommendations, though the food came out very rushed. Before you can finish one plate the second one is already arriving. Also, the glasses had a smell to them, which you usually get when your dishwasher isn’t maintained/cleaned properly (something you won’t expect from a high end restaurant).

We were in and out in 45 minutes, for $350 for 4 people.
It was more like fast food than fine dining, which is ridiculous. They brought us the entrees as quickly as if they had been sitting in the back on a plate before we showed up. It was preposterously expensive for mediocre food.
