We came for our anniversary and did the 15 course menu which was absolutely worth it! Each course had a unique flavour and the server ensured to tell us the details of each one, which all tasted delicious. We will definitely be coming back!

I can’t believe last night was our first time here! We ate inside and the space is fresh, inviting and just beautiful. We started with the edamame, spicy tuna roll and spicy cucumber salad since we arrived at the end of happy hour and they’re all on special. The spicy tuna roll was well prepared and a great choice to wake up our palates! For dinner we ordered the skirt steak robata and the slider robata. Wow. Both impressed us for sure! The char and flavor of the skirt steak (even before dipping) was authentic and just cooked perfectly. Don’t miss the slider robata…the miso mustard is an exceptional complement to the beef…you might actually say, “wow!” after your first bite!!! We also had two full portions of the King Crab Temaki Hand Roll, which I highly recommend, as each portion is about three bites. Three bites of crustacean bliss! I also had the Hamachi (Yellowtail Tuna) Sashimi and the Unagi (bbq eel)…yum!!! And next time will try the Akami (bluefin tuna loin). Our server Becca was outstanding; super friendly and did a great job in helping us navigate the menu and make our selections. They have a great cocktail list; we ordered a Cosmo and it was perfection. Thanks for having us…we’ll be back soon!

Where should I start — From the elegance from the bar (Xanny) to the outstanding service from John, I couldn’t be happier. Let me set the scene for you. From the host stand to the bar to the service, everything was a 100/10. Abrielle, to Xanny from the bar to John making our experience, to the table touches from JJ, Nobu did not fail to uphold the true definition of customer satisfaction and service. We put our trust into John to curate a chefs tasting to our liking and our preferences considering there was an allergy. Everything was phenomenal. From the trio of oysters, crispy rice, and let’s talk about the lamb chops, A5 waygu and lobster. NOBU CHICAGO, HUGE thank you for hosting me and Tony. Your staff is great. Drinks are great. You all from support staff to servers, bartenders and management made our experience great. We will be back.

I've been to this place before, and I'm liking the new menu! It was nice to have the split bowl with both broths, and the new instant ramen additions were awesome! Can't wait to return for another visit!
