    Nobu headquarters needs to immediately look into this location and how horribly it is hurting their brand because after patroning this location I will never ever return to a Nobu! Ambience is horrible, I feel like I'm being led down to some basement. Tables for 2 are literally on top of each other so my fiance and I could over hear both conversations on each side of us, how romantic! (note the sarcasm!). I didn't realize that I, as a customer, had to ask the waiter for the specials when he didn't even offer these, is that his job? The only good about this dinner was the cocktail I ordered off the bar list, everything is sub-par to say the least. Trust me, we have no issue dropping $300 for a dinner for 2, that's not the issue...

    We have been to many Nobu restaurants from Las Vegas to the Bahamas this was by far the best we have had. Try the king crab on half shell. We were however surprised by the location. Not the norm and the noise level was very very high. Small tables as usual. Overall one of our most memorable Nobu experiences thus far!

    Iam a Brazillian foodie and travel the world looking for the best restaurants and I can say That I've been to every Nobu in The US. i spent 1 hour at Nobu Miami and left without being served. After I was seated I waited 15 minutes for help and the restaurant was not that busy. They took another 30 minutes to bring my order and arrived two times wrong. rather than try to reverse the situation, the person who was helping me complained that could not understand what i was saying. I immediately asked for the bill and left the restaurant hungry and frustrated. I payed 100 dollars for the sake and the yellow fish tail sashimi we had. I've never passed through this situation before, not even in Brazil. Nobu Miami never again!

    We've always had great service at the miami Nobu. This time, that was not the case. We left after an appetizer because no one tended to our order. The app was actually the wrong one, even though we had to order it twice. Really disappointing.

    Had a starter vegetable tempura, tofu entre and trout. They were ok on the whole by American standards, but therefore should have been priced the same as your average pseudo-Japanese place. Everything we ordered tasted overpoweringly of Ponzu which showed the calibre of the chefs there. Overall disappointing, will not recommend or return myself.

    Me encanta y estudio gastronomia, y este lugar me hizo volar a otros mundos de sabores que nunca habia experimentado!!!! Espero volver a viajar a otro pais donde haya un restaurante Nobu para repetir tan maravillosa experiencia gastronomica. Estoy en busca de los cookbooks del señor Nobu para aprender esa manera tan consiente y apasionada de cocinar. Fue mi mejor experiencia en la visita a Miami, mi esposo y yo quedamos sin palabras. Espero un dia llegar a ese nivel de cocina. Gracias por la atencion.

    We have been to Nobu in New York and were very happy to find a slightly different menu in Miami. Everything we ordered was delicious, but even more impressive than the amazing food was the outstanding service. So many people helping, we never wanted or waited for a thing. Highly trained, very accommodating staff. Will definitely be back the next time we are in town.

    Expected far more since I have been to Nobu London & Cape Town, both were far more upscale in decor, dress code & menu. Only highlight was the Miso Black Cod, as for the rest of the menu we've had better sushi at our local in Austin!

    Food was really ok. Service Level compared with proposed gratuity of around 20 percent not covering our expectation. It was more a Main Station Feeling instead of upper class dining. Speaking together not possible. It was too loud. So overall cost/benefit ratio not ok. Price Level too high for that. We were really disappointed.

    We visited Nobu some years ago and had good experience, so we went back again. However, portion got smaller and dishes are more overpriced. We are disappointed by declining of taste and of curtesy of dishes. For example, chef's selection should come with best ingredients, but key element was missing; some of the dishes has misleading name. "Hiyashichuka" supposed to come with specific chuka noodles, but it was made of somen and with strange taste. Should change the name of the dish.

    The food was very impressive, but they were stingy with the amount of food they gave for such an expensive price. My night ended with a large bill and a hungry family. Don't get me wrong though, I truly did enjoy the food they have! If you want to go to Nobu just be prepared and have a bite to eat before you enter the restaurant.

    Don't bother with this one, food is very americanised and doesn't come close to the London or Hong Kong restaurants. Has a diner like feel instead of a high end restaurant. For anyone who has sampled other Nobu restaurants or other notable Japanese restaurants you will be very disappointed.

    In an almost empty restaurant rather inexplicably we're seated near the fire exit. We tried the chef's special -85$- which consisted in five courses one of them being the desert. It was good but not exceptional by far. Too expensive for what it offers.

    Being my first visit to the famous Nobu, i had a high standard in mind. The food definately lived up to expectation. Flavour, texture, presentation were great! The surroundings were rather a disappointment though. I think i was expecting something chic & refined, so was suprised to find the decoration as textured wood & turquoise tiled combo; the effect being somewhat 'garish'; certainly not with the finesse i had been expecting. Our server was not forthcoming with information on the menu. Having dined in high end restaurAnts throughout miami we had been introduced to the menu and dining style immediately. This was not done. He was very informed however, once we had asked questions. Overall a good experience and we would return/recommend.

    The food we had at Nobu Miami was good but not great. Before booking in Miami, I had recnetly been to Nobu San Diego with a large group. Everything brought to our table in San Diego was outstanding and memorable. My husband and I both felt the food in Miami was good but not worth the price we paid. I will return to Nobu in other cities but probably not this one.

    The restaurant is at the Shore Club, so from the outside it looks a little dated, but once you come in, the place is really charming. When we walked in at 7:15, there were just a few people, but by 7:45 the place was packed. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was not only helpful, but so accomodating we felt like royalty. On top of that, there were at least 6 people walking around the restaurant just looking around to refill water glasses, clean your table and pour wine. Loved it! The food was delicious but the portions were too small. The sushi rolls were tiny but amazing. The Sashimi salad, greens with a few pieces of salmon was definitely overpriced at $36.00. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the location.
