    Everything was mechanically great…what was missing was a really friendly experience people wise…everything was good…physical plant is great…food was great, servers were efficient, but just a general feeling of a friendly welcoming dining experience in the “hood” was missing.

    We have been to 3 different Nobu restaurants (2 in Vegas) and the one in Denver was by far the BEST experience. The staff was wonderful, the food was great, we did not feel rushed and they even had a sommelier which we have never had in Vegas.

    Food great as usual but the service was seriously lacking this night!! Waited 15-20 min on a cocktail refill and then the server was MIA after dropping last course off and we needed more ginger for our rolls and it took 10-12min for him to try and walk by me before I had to get his attention!!! Not what we expect eating here!!

    The passion fruit martini (sub tequila) is so amazing!! Almost better than the Gardner cocktail (yeah, I said it) - which is the green drink. The bincho truffle is one of my favorite things, it has miso powder and shaved truffle on top with a truffle type sauce. We also got the crispy tuna, which is deconstructed and not pictured - personal fav. The lotus tuna are a cute little bite. Love the ambiance! The service is impeccable too!

    Pricey, but no shocker there. Still worth every dollar. The crispy rice with tuna is a new favorite, and the trumpet mushrooms (with grilled scallops) was maybe the best thing I've eaten all year. Last time I was there I had the same thing, grilled scallops, but with hearts of palm pasta (to keep it low card, ya know). I was thrilled with that dish, but this might be better. Next time, I might ask the chef to try to combine them somehow. Or I'll just order both! Love this place.

    Best dinner in a long time! We LOVED the crispy rice and tuna, crab & lobster tacos, yellowtail w/jalapeño, and a seasonal roll that contained a fried pepper - OUTSTANDING! The sommelier found us a wine that was spot on what we like! And the service was over the top. As it was our first time here, we took all of Billy’s (our server) recommendations and everything was amazing! Thank you! We will be back and bringing friends.

    Food and service good. Inside feels like a Kona Grillish or insert similar chain type restaurant. For a $500 dinner it feels tired and lacks ambience. Lots of better places to dine in Denver at that price point (Uchi, Beckon, etc). If you are wondering is it “worth it” I’d say no. A lot of tourists coming for the name and again the price felt 2x what it should be for the experience.

    We ordered Otoro yet we got Chutoro which is the lower cut without notifying. However we also charged double for the price of Otoro later. If we didn’t check our bills we would have been charged for what we didn’t have. Its price doesn’t justify the quality of shashimi.

    Service was incredibly slow. It took 20 minutes to be greeted by the server (and only then because we asked someone to send over our server). Then they brought out the entrée before the appetizers.
