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.

It was a wonderful experience. In terms of seafood everything was fresh and of the utmost quality. I had the chef's signature tasting menu, and it was overall very good, with only one or two dishes being average or sub par. The ambiance is amazing and the service was quite good as well. Overall a great experience.

Super fun experience, had the signature Omakase with drinks pairing. My wife and I both enjoyed it immensely and look forward to trying their premium Omakase next time!

Going to Nobu is always a real treat, & NY’s Nobu didn’t disappoint! The service, cocktails & cuisine were great. We esp enjoyed the sashimi salad & the yellow tail w/jalapeño...

Beautiful restaurant, great ambiance for a romantic evening meal. Service was good, but not as good as I would have hoped for such an expensive meal. We waited quite a while to order, and our waiter only returned when we had another course coming. I was hoping to order a second drink but never really got a chance. We got the Fifty Seven omakase, and every single dish was stunningly delicious. Nobu really excels at flavor! The one drink I did have (their award-winning cocktail) was amazing! I'd recommend Nobu for anyone looking for an excellent meal.

Nobu has always been overpriced in my opinion, but this last experience was very disappointing. The sushi could have been from a cheap buffet style restaurant. I don’t feel like I’m exaggerating when I say that either. I’ve been spoiled by great sushi experiences over several years and Nobu costs as much as any high level, high quality sushi restaurant and fails badly in the quality department.

Nobu 57 is our favourite restaurant in New York. Every dish is amazing. It is extremely expensive so save it for a treat when you want to splurge.

It was my mother’s birthday so I wanted to take her somewhere she would enjoy and never forget. I’ve been to Nobu several times but it was the first for her. She loved everything about it!!! The setting, food, and the waitstaff. I am so happy she enjoyed everything. I can’t wait to go back!!

Our waiter disappeared often. We had to ask other wait staff for refills and utensils. The first three things we ordered off the menu were “unavailable” as per the waiter. They didn’t offer other things, when asking what they suggested the answer was “I don’t know everything is good”. No assistance what so ever.

We dine at other Nobu locations often and have not received this treatment. Perhaps because we were young adults, we were not taken seriously and they assumed our money was not green enough. My date for the evening, is a YouTube star that grossed just short of a million dollars last year, she’s also a former Disney channel actress. She intends to share her experience online with video and photo footage. You should also know we were celebrating our 5 year anniversary. It was a terrible way to end the evening.

The food and service were A+. The music was techno pop and not relaxing at all. I just tuned it out but it bothered one of the guests at my table. Fabulous restaurant. I highly recommend it.

Second time we have dined at Nobu. First time was as a group. Second time was just my wife and myself. Both experiences were amazing. The “now” offerings pair great with the standard offerings and they are uniformly outstanding and creative.
