First off, our server was fantastic. She was really knowledgeable of the dishes and japanese cuisine in general-really helpful. Secondly, the black cod with miso is fantastic. I have had many black cods with miso since it is a traditional japanese dish, and I have never had it made in this way-fantastic. AND if you're not a fish fan, you have to try their kobe beef it is to die for. My overall experience was great and I would definately go back there again.

I go to Nobu just about everytime i vist NYC and my cousin takes me there. it is absolutely amazing! I never liked sushi or japanese food and the raw fish dish, not sure exactly what it is called because my cousin goes there so often they know everything she always orders the same 7 dishes but the tofu soup is outstanding and the saki and the raw fish and tuna dish. i never like raw fish until i came to NOBU. You have to go. some celebs go there too and its fun to see them. = you have to try it. its pricy but great!

My friend and I went to Nobu's for lunch and it is so not worth the money! We had the eel roll which tasted like pure fish. The salmon skin roll was salty, dry, and too big. Hope you can open wide. The rock shrimp tempura and the shrimp tempura roll were good. As far as dessert goes well I had the pineapple trio. I don't recomend it. It's tiny and not that good. Our overall experience was disappointing. Don't waste your money.

Unique, delicious Japanese cuisine. Loved the sashimi salad, rock shrimp tempura and black cod with miso. Great service. Just expect a large bill!

Went to Nobu for restaurant week and had a wonderful time! We were seated promptly and our waitress was ultra accommodating. For appetizers, I highly recommend the Rock Shrimp Tempura with Creamy Spicy Sauce. It is to die for! I still think about it to this day. A few of my friends ordered the Miso Soup, but the overall consensus is the shrimp is better. As an entrée, I had the Broiled Black Cod with Miso. At first I was put off by the small portion, but soon realized it is more than plenty. The cod melts in your mouth like butter. It was great! Other’s ordered the beef teriyaki which was delicious too. The sushi was blah though, even though it’s biggest of the three entrees. I recommend the cod. For dessert we were given a ginger cake with caramel ice cream and caramelized bananas. It was a great ending to a wonderful meal. Overall, I love this place. The restaurant is beautiful (although it was smaller than I thought it would be) and the food was great. I’m so glad I made it to Nobu for restaurant week, as I probably could not afford this place otherwise.

finally ate at nobu... i read the so so reviews on here, how howard stern loves this place, how hard it is to get in, and how everyone says its the best japanese in the country... Having dined at morimotos many times, I was expecting something along the lines, since he was the chef here for a while... The place was very soothing, and had a comfy feel to it... we started off with the toro tartare... (the only disappointment of our meal...) morimoto s has the same toro tartar w/ caviar... the problem with nobu s? half the size, toro didnt seem as fresh, too much soy sause and wasabi... by the time we had four bites, the rest of the toro were so submerged in soy sauce (with insane amount of wasabi) that ruin the delicate meat... And i love wasabi... but after that everything was wonderful... Hamachi with jalepenos were unbelievable balance of texture, and spice. The rock shrimp tempura was good as advertised... I wanted to try it with the ponzu, but our server recommended the creamy spicy something... Really good though... Black Cod w/ miso... wow.... really really good... It seems like every restaurant has sea bass, black cod, or some sort of fish with miso, but this might of been the best of them all... miso wasnt over powering, but was enough to penetrate the meat of the oily cod, and wow... just damn tasty... we ended our meal with sea bass with black bean sauce, (which I should of just gotten another black cod but my girl wanted to try it..) and spicy tuna roll... I heard lot of people say dont get the sushi or the sashmi here.. The spicy tuna roll was really good, nice big chunks of fresh tuna with nice dab of spicy mayo sauce.... I walked out feeling very good about the meal... The service was outstanding, (my water level didnt drop past middle)... I highly recommend eating here, just would skip the toro tartare... Is it the best japanese in the country?? prob not, but its pretty damn close... great food, atmosphere, and service... Ill be back to eat here...

Had my birthday dinner here .. party of 10.. the kitchen closed early (11pm) i believe.. so I felt rushed since we had a late dinner.. The appetizers were tasty.. The entrees were ok. My so so experience can be due to dining time.. but I heard great stuff about Nobu.. so I went in with very high expectations..as far as service.. Pretty mediocre ambiance.. Tuna Tempura Roll was very tasty.. Rock Shrimp Tempura with Ponzu recommended.. Shrimp and Lobster with Spicy Lemon Sauce was a very light dish.. I was a little disappointed by the size of portions.. think Salad with a couple pieces shirmp.. LOL.
