The food was great however, I wish the service was better. There were times when the food took too long to arrive at the table, and that got a bit tiring. Apart from that, the food tasted amazing, and the ambience was nice.

The ambiance is very beautiful but unfortunately the service is not what you would expect in a high-class restaurant. The waitress gave us the bill even though we did not finish our drinks. She said she doesn’t want to rush but no 5 minutes later she asked for the credit card. We stayed for 45 minutes because we felt unwelcome.

I have been to several Nobu restaurants all over the country and I find this particular one quite pretentious. Every time I have come to this location the restaurant is by far not at capacity, but we never get seated in the main restaurant. They always act like the tables in the main dining area are reserved, but they remain open the entire time we have our dinner. Considering I pay the full price of my meal and always tip 20%, I should be treated with more appreciation. Don't think I'll be going back to this location.

Outstanding service. My water glass was never empty. Food was delicious and fresh and presented nicely. When I booked the reservation I made a comment stating it was our anniversary. When dessert came out they remembered and wrote “happy anniversary” on the plate. Little things go a long way. We will be back!

Our second dinner at a NoBu location and once again the food was out of this world. One of the best meals we have had in LA and in my mind surpasses some 2 Michelin Star spots. Will definitely come back again!

I had always wanted to come to Nobu for the longest time. I knew it was one of the hottest places someone could go. Everything was amazing except for the waiter himself everyone else’s service was top notch. Food was not enough for the cost but quality was great!

Nobu, to me, is by far the best Sushi Restaurant in the US! Never disappoints and the service is outstanding! If there was a higher level of satisfaction I would give it to them.

Food was incredible minus the prawn tempura (felt like a waste of time). Highly recommend the Albcore Sashimi, Wagyu Gyoza and the Black Cod. Service was good but a little too in your face. Every time we sipped our water or wine it was topped up and that felt invasive for us. Apart from that a good experience. 400 dollars included 9-10 plates, desert and a bottle of wine.
