Good food, very large bill!
By timothy86 on 3/30/2009
The food is really good. However, be prepared for very large plates with only 1 bite of food on them. This adds up to a very expensive night after which you will need to go somewhere else to fill up. I did like the place though and would go back. It is very trendy inside and the food was really amazing. However the bill may be shocking for some.
NOBU- FANTASY OF FOOD
By PAULLESLEY on 8/24/2005
MY WIFE AND I VISITED NOBU LAST FRIDAY. AFTER A FULL DAY OF 5TH AVE SHOPPING. THIS IS THE 2ND TIME AT NOBU, WE WERE NOT DISSAPPOINTED. FOOD, SERVICE WERE OUTSTANDING. DIDN'T MIND PRICE OF MEAL BECAUSE THIS WAS THE END OF A VERY GOOD DAY IN NYC. STAFF EVEN REFEFFED US TO A COUPLE OF CLUBS IN MEAT PACKING DISTRICT. HAD A GREAT TIME THERE ALSO. THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE TO REPEAT- AS OFTEN AS YOUR BUDGET WILL ALLOW... OUTSTANDING!!!!!
A unique experience...

I'll say it simply: I've been to them all, and Nobu is the best restaurant in NY hands down.
Swimmingly Fresh Fish and Tasty Treats

Say Omikase - you will not be disappointed. The tempura pumpkin and trio de pots creme (Ginger, Green Tea, Espresso) were delish! The best! Not to be missed.
Japanese at it's Best

Creativity and quality are both Nobu's trademarks. You can't go to Nobu just for sushi, you go to try a variety of dishes. The entire dining experience is a treat.
Hollywood meets Japan

I crave Nobu's black cod with miso, his hot pepper sauce, his delicate yet zesty, original dishes even now that they're almost unaffordable. Nobu is enormous with chopstick legs on the stools, a rock wall, his special dishes, etc. I prefer the smaller, original Matsuhisa in LA, but if you can afford Nobu, you should certainly start way ahead to make a reservation and have the experience. My son and I shared an omikase special one night ($75 each without drinks) and were ready to go for a burger afterwards as portions were miniscule. The food is fabulous. If you're not familiar with it, don't be ashamed to ask for explanations and recommendations. Just bring lots of plastic. The prepared dishes are his specialty though his sushi is also special, but don't limit yourself to the familiar as you'll waste the opportunity to see what Nobu is about. If you can get them to make you the kelp with seaweed, order it. They also have a notable selection of sushi, but I'm a beer drinker, so can't talk about that. And, yes, you're likely to see celebrities, perhaps in the back behind the curtain.

Each visit is a new adventure. There is no better Japanese in New York. Whether you go ala carte or take the Omakase dinner route, you will not be dissappointed. The Omakase dinner gives you a better idea of the chef's creativity. Quite a pricey meal, but well worth it. The toughest part of this dining experience is the reservation and confirmation routine. It never gets easier. I suppose that is a compliment to the restaurant.
Try the signature dish

Their signature dish of black cod with miso is delicious. Try the sashimi salad.

Definitely worth the wait for a reservation and worth every penny. This food is THE BEST! I love sushi, but the food here is so extraordinary, that I rarely order sushi. Everything I have ever had on the menu is excellent!
As Great as Ever
By Voldar on 2/1/2009
Having been eating fairly regularly at Nobu for a decade or so it is as fantastic as it has ever been. My only nitpick is that nobu needs to more regularly come up with new dishes that made Nobu great and changed Japanese American cuisine permanently (yellowtail and jalepeno, salmon new style sashimi for example).. he seems to be resting on his laurels a bit... also I rarely actually eat just plain sushi as the cold and hot dishes are so fantastic, not sure why one would bother with the sushi, which tends to be good but not earthshattering
