The food at Nobu is spectacular. But be warned: stay away from sushi as this is not a sushi place. We had the tasting menu and the food was just amazing. Black miso cod is to die for! If you book, make sure to ask for a table away from the door. There are some tables that are virtually in the entry hall. Overall, a great dining experience that is not cheap but not at all overpriced.

I was here 2 weeks ago and all I can say is sensory overload! I started with rock shrimp tempura [mildly crunchy, great taste] Yellowtail Sashimi w/ Jalapeno Sauce [I am still dreaming of it] Sashimi Salad [amazing dressing]. Each dish was fresh, delicate and gorgeous.

I went to Nobu for the very first time and didn't think I would be very impressed because I figure sushi is just sushi - well I was wrong! The food was incredible, we had the jalepeno yellowtail, the rock shrimp tempura and the black cod, and I couldn't pick a favorite! Everything was so fresh and delicious. It is a little pricey, but as a treat - it's unbelievable.

I went to nobu for a client lunch where everyone had the Omakase (Chef's choice). I highly recommend doing this if you go there; you are served significant portions of all the best items (not limited to sashimi/sushi) available that day. The sashimi was among the freshest and best that I have sampled in NYC (including places such as Masa and Honmura An). The rest of the dishes were delectable and inventive, although my favorite was the more conservative Broiled Black Cod w/ Miso. Despite not having to pay the $65 cost for the lunch Omakase, I would glady go pay that much for a future lunch on my birthday or as a treat to myself. It is hands-down the best japanese food I have ever eaten.

I can't recommend Nobu highly enough. It is stylish and posh, but not over the top. The food is simply to die for. The toro tartar is silky sinful goodness. The yellowtail/ jalapeno sashimi is delightful. The miso cod is famous for a reason...it's a must-have. So tender and yummy. The kobe beef is the best I've had anywhere. And the lychee martini made with sake is refreshing and delicious. I just love this place.

We went to nobu last night. It was great except slow service. But we didn't mind because we had time to hang out. You should especially try -bento box- it was a dessert. it was yummy. And also we had sushi (we prefer hand roll), chicken teriyaki and shrimp pronzo and a pineapple martini. Everything was great.

Food's ok and not really worth the $$$$. Atmosphere is plain. Waiters can be rude.. when it comes to recommending dishes, it's obvious they've repeated the same lines 1000Xs.. (very monotonous). A one time visit is ok. Skip the martinis and try the house saki.
