    Tasty Shrimp!

    The rock shrimp are amazing (I want them now!) as is the miso cod.

    Wonderful food, celebrity sightings

    We enjoyed the lobster shiitake salad, the squid pasta, and basil ice cream. The shrimp tempura and black cod not as wonderful. Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, and Serena Williams were all dining nearby.

    Not a normal restaurant! Thankfully..

    I just read all the reviews on this site, and having been to Nobu 57 several times, as well as the other two Nobus in the city, I think most of them are way off. 57 is my favorite Nobu because of the great service and the amazing quality of the food (the king crab tempura is to die for). I especially think the desserts and special martinis are the best in the city. And of course dishes don't come at the same time! It's a family-style restaurant, so if everyone orders only one dish a la carte, you should know that's because it's not how they do things and you're missing out on trying lots of great food! I like the small portions because it lets me try lots of different items, and if you don't like the prices you shouldn't even go in the first place. Let the restaurant show you how to do things THEIR way and you will be guaranteed a good time.

    Never Disappoints

    So the bar scene is REALLY crowded, but lots of beautiful people. The best spicy shrimp tempura I've tasted. Great atmosphere in the actual dining room and service is excellent. I always have a good time.

    MmGOOD!

    Excellent selection of hot and cold dishes. Miso Cod was fab! Every dish I tasted had its own intricate delicate, flavorful taste. The waiter was very helpful with selection of the portion and very friendly. Pricy, but certainly one of the best places in nyc for some truly top quality dinning experience. And the leather handrail coverings are cool!

    Over-hyped

    I have had the pleasure of dining at many good Japense restaurants in New York City; however, I had not eaten at any of the Nobu establishments until tonight. I was skeptical, but felt I needed to at least try it and see for myself if it was indeed "really fantastic" or "over-hyped." Unfortunately, it was the latter. The food was overpriced and of mediocre quality at best. My mother's tempura was not crispy and was battery. My sashimi was a huge let-down: the toro had a sinewy, thick fat streak through it, the salmon tasted as if it had been salted, the so-so abalone was a price I am embarassed to type, and the soft-shell crab roll was indistinguishable from any shrimp tempura roll you would get at the local Japenese restaurant. The desserts, though they looked interesting, were also flops. I ordered a peach/jasmine soup with beer ice cream and peanut nuggets. The combination did not work at all and the nuggets dissolved.

    Don't move a chair at Nobu 57

    Have eaten at many Nobu's across the country. Last night my party of 6 asked for a chair for a guest who joined us for a drink after our dinner and after a few minutes or so of her standing there...slid a chair over from an empty adjoining table so she could sit. A staff member got annoyed. Pretentious NYC establishments. You can get this food at many restaurants in NYC. No need to go there. Much better atmosphere at Downtown and Next Door Nobu's.
