Incredible food quality and service. Very inventive menu while still maintaining Japanese authenticity. Our server was very professional and nice. I have never commented on pricing before but make no mistake, it’s pricey. Outstanding experience though.

We always hit Nobu when we travel to Dallas. The Premium Chefs Tasting is a must. I’m convinced they make the best spicy Margarita on the planet.

The worst experience of my life. I made reservations for my birthday, since I have visited other Nobus and really enjoyed it.
Took forever to get our food, service was horrible and not apologetic at all, blaming it on Covid and being short staffed. In that case, set the expectations early, or make less reservations to accommodate your guests.
We stayed there until 11pm, without getting some of the food that we ordered. Left hungry and disappointed

I am a Japanese man and went there with high expectation. The food was good but not for that price range. Everything was overly seasoned and did not exhibit that delicate authentic Japanese way of cooking style which enhances original flavor of each ingredient.

Took too long to receive miso soup and other appetizers.
Waiter did not introduce himself and ask if you have been here before. Bathroom outside of restaurant downstairs.

The food at Nobu was fantastic and they have the best espresso martini I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, the experience however was not the best. I had a reservation for 2 and called early the day of asking to add one additional person. The girl on the phone told me they were completely booked and had no larger tables (was only making it from 2 people to 3). When we arrived it was about 10 minutes early for our reservation. There were two hostess’ at the front. One, very friendly but the other was extremely cold and rude and told us to go wait in the hotel lobby. Never said how we would know our table was ready just wanted us out. Then my friend went to ask if we could grab a drink at the bar while we waited instead, and after waving her hand at her gesturing to “wait” as she talked to someone else, the hostess said “no. I don’t have a spot for you”. A few minutes later we walked up to the bar and the bartender was happy to serve us a cocktail before dinner. I have no idea why this hostess was so against us waiting in the restaurant but she couldn’t have been more un-inviting. Then we weren’t seated at our table for 40 minutes making it 30 minutes past our reservation time. The most frustrating part however is when we saw our table it was set for 4 people. After I had been told we couldn’t add a 3rd to our reservation that day. I called my friend up and she was able to come join as we originally wanted and our server was fabulous and welcoming to her once she arrived. The food and our server definitely turned the night around but the front of house made us feel totally unwelcome there. Not sure I would go again and risk the same treatment.

We ordered the 8 course Omakase. Spectacular to say the least, I don’t eat beef so they made substitutes for where the A5 wagu would be served. It’s been a few days and I’m still thinking about the tuna tare with fish eggs on top. The very first dish was my favorite even though each course took my breath away. Already planing my next visit!

I had specifically mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. I even received a call one day prior from Nobu asking how my wife's name is spelled so they could include that on the complimentary chocolate plate to be served at the end of the meal. Unfortunately, the experience left a lot to be desired. When we arrived, we weren't greeted or seated by the hostess with a smile and were just taken wordlessly to our table. There was no recognition that this was a special occasion from her or the staff. We weren't served any celebratory food. When we requested our picture to be taken it was done sullenly by the hostess with an eyeroll.

It's not that I care about these things. But it's bizarre that a 5 star restaurant like Nobu with it's $$$$ pricing and brand name could have such mediocre and uncoordinated service. After all, a lot of restaurants have great food. It's the experience and service people that go to top notch restaurants for. Nobu Dallas didn't even come close to Uchi Dallas or NYC, Chicago, SF high end restaurants who know how to truly delight customers with special touches. We were treated like we would be at say, a $10 / bowl Pho restaurant.

The food was decent. No complaints.

Perhaps the fact that we decided to switch to the happy hour seating area instead of ordering from the regular dinner menu made us "less important guests"? Who knows, but I certainly wouldn't recommend this place for special occasions.

Save your money and go somewhere else or just go here for the happy hour.

I’ve been to Nobu’s in other states and this is by far was the worst experience. The host was very friendly and sat us right away. Our server was not the best, she was not attentive we had to wave others down for questions, for our bill and even ask us for refills or thank us for dinning.

Very Poor Service.
We got the premium tasting menu and food was served to our guests first and our came way later and they had to wait while ours was served.

Very bad.

Been to Nobu across the globe and love it but why bother asking if you’re celebrating a birthday if they don’t wish the guest happy birthday or do anything special.

The only thing about this place is the service was excellent. Food was terrible. Not good for a special occasion. People dressed in shorts, ball caps sitting near people that thought this was a special place in suites and jackets...WAY over priced for the food quality. A trip to Bonefish is much better food quality and for 1/2 the price...
