Nobu reservations

Does anyone have ideas on how to get a reservation at Nobu? The phone is ALWAYS busy!

I've never even tried to get into this one. maybe the fax or this 2nd number:
Nobu. 105 Hudson St., off Franklin St., tel. 212/219-0500; 212/219-8095 for same-day reservations. fax 212/219-1441.

I hope the dining experience is worth the trouble of getting in. Nobu Next Door is supposedly first come - first serve. I haven't tried that either.

I called and got through on the first try. Called right when they opened the line for reservations(think it was 10:00am; the recording will tell you).

Next Door is definitely first come. I think they will take your cell phone # and call you 15 minutes before your table is ready.

The second # is probably their confirmation #? All I know is there is only 1 line for reservations, they will not grant a reservation through the confirmation #. I don't believe they will take them in person, either.

Any restaurant that has a constant busy signal isn't worth the trouble. With all of the excellant restaurants in New York, why waste your time.

Go where your business is appreciated. I generally find there is a direct corelation between the amount of trouble a restaurant gives me up-front and the ultimate overall dining experience.

When we went last October, the concierge at our hotel made the reservation, but he had to do it one month out, which is when they open their reservation book. He also said that he always has a lot of trouble getting through, and that he just sets the phone to redial and prepares to wait. So I guess I'm saying, if you're staying at a decent hotel, make the concierge do it and tip him/her generously. If you're local, keep trying, but be aware that it may be impossible to get a table sooner than one month from the day you call. In the meantime, try your best to befriend a hot celebrity...that always does the trick at Nobu! BTW, Nobu is worth it: the food was out of this world, and the waitstaff were surprisingly warm and friendly, unlike the snooty hostess.
