Nobu Los Angeles Ratings and Reviews
This was a disappointing experience. The service was poor and the food was marginal at best. The sushi was no better than an everyday strip mall. Absolutely not worth the wait. The bar area was empty so obviously the quality is really lacking here. This was unexpected since we were excited to eat here for our only open night in town. Skip this place and go next door.
Small portions, inattentive waiter who tried to up-sell us the $100 per person “family style.” Unfortunately we went for the bait. Our bad. The portions were WAY small, mostly sauce, the sushi rolls were the circumference of my thumb. My martini was mini but full priced. Waiter had to be flagged down 5 times. Cute, but ineffective. Make sure you leave the top in cash. They bring you a remote checkout machine which is confusing and only allows for 2 tip %s - 18 or 20. I wanted to leave 10.
We came from Vancouver, BC, and had the most amazing time. Thanks to our wonderful server Dante, we had the best food!! He helped us through the menu and everything he suggested was even better than he described. We will definitely be coming back when we are back in town.
Thanks for having us 😘
The food was fantastic, we have chosen the Nobu selection menu for 100 usd a person.
The selection was fabulous
The atmosphere in the restaurant was fabulous too
Staff was very friendly
The only negative for the evening was :
The service for drinks and in general was not the same level as the food, probably because of new and inexperienced staff....
We needed to ask to fill up our glasses...from our bottle that was stored about 3 meters from our table.
Despite that, highly recommended.
Food is excellent and the service is good. Drinks takes some time to get by the food arrives promptly. The staff clearly knows their stuff - very professional and inspires important. Visiting Nobu in LA for the first time - their flagship restaurant...the home of Nobu himself...- I was staggered to see the poor state of the restaurant. I was expecting this to be top notch. Tables and chairs are wobbly - our table was leaning 5 degrees northwest- and the whole place just looks outdated. How can u let it slip like this... get a grip for God's sake! Remember, this is not some remote over-seas franchise its your signature restaurant.
Loved the atmosphere and decor. The food was pricey to say the least, if you're going to get dinner for two, don't expect to spend less than $200, even during happy hour. That said, the food and drinks were absolutely phenomenal. I can't say I left feeling full though. I'd be back, but only for a special occasion.
I enjoyed taking my best friend here for her birthday! I have been to nobu several times so I always order the same thing but this time around they got my main order incorrect. It was suppose to be their hot lobster plate that I know comes in a hot black pot with sauce but the waiter brought us a lobster truffle plate with mushrooms and Brussels sprouts which I know for a fact the other dish I get regularly does not have those ingredients. We I explained this my waiter he insisted that they changed that dish and that this was the correct plate! Since I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it I let it go and paid for something I didn’t like- unfortunately since my friend was sharing, I didn’t see her liking the dish much either. Very unfortunate because I was raving to her about my specific dish that I usually get. Hopefully next time the waiter will be a bit more understanding.
My bff and I went to Nobu Los Angeles to celebrate my early half-birthday. The staff went above and beyond, every step of the way, including sending out a “1/2 dessert” for my “1/2 birthday.” The food was delicious, as it always is, and I will be back in a few weeks to celebrate my actual half-birthday!
Nobu was our choice to celebrate a special anniversary. The atmosphere is very LA, and we had a great people-watching seat. The food was great, but not roll-your-eyes-back great. We had the “signature” tasting menu. At $100, it was a reasonable value. We were pretty full at the end. We went for the sushi, but our favorite course was the truffle teriyaki beef, which was to die for. The last course was green tea soba noodles, which were perfectly prepared, but a little bit too far of a palate cleanser, too soon after that amazing beef. Dessert was delicious (lava cake and green tea ice cream) but creatively flat and very 1990s (1980s?). The service was spot on, and we probably should have taken his suggestion to let him build a menu for us based on our preferences, instead of doing the tasting, but we (I) really didn’t want to think about my likes and dislikes... I just wanted to relax and let the courses come out! Overall, a pleasant experience, maybe a tad overpriced at $310 including drinks (2) and tip.
Always delicious, always a pleasure dining here. The miso cod is a must have, along with the toro tartare with caviar. Their saly and pepper calamari has such a unique flavor we were happy we tried it this time around. Our favorite is the wagyu beef flambe. Cooked on rocks, it is perfection.
Nobu has but one thing to get into the heads and many of us have said it for years.
Put on table cloths over the 'Sizzler steak house' tables and you'll have a environment that elevates the food...yes, the food will actually taste better!
The tables are so low end, that when i brought my GF there promising a great experience , she sort of looked down and felt 'yikes...this seems sort of lame'.
When you understand this is elegant presentation and class, you have to loose the wood grain tables...the price points and food which are both top of the mark justify this.
Stop being schlocky, just to turn the tables a minute faster.
Its great advise and will elevate the name , brand and food.
What can you say? Nobu is a classic and never disappoints. We put ourselves into the hands of our server to choose a tasting menu of many dishes, most of which came out and were extraordinary. The favor profiles and combinations have become so refined as to be so Nobu specific there are dishes there you can't find anywhere else on the plant--except at the ongoing proliferation of Nobu restaurants around the globe.
Always happy when I leave Nobu. Never a complaint. Service always impeccable. A great evening.
Nobu was a must do when I travelled to LA from Sydney. My friend and I chose to dine later in the evening, the restaurant was quiet with only a number of tables still there. The venue is beautiful, the hostess very friendly and pleasant. The restrooms were clean and classy.
Only male servers were working, some were friendly but unfortunately most were very dismissive, unfriendly and seemed more interested in doing the bare minimum to serve a table that wasnt in there area (although the tips are shared). Even when we were one of only theee tables left, the waiters seemed insulted when we asked for anything. Our waiter was quite slow and it seemed we were constantly waiting for him to appear. The chefs were friendly and waved and greeted/farewelled. Unfortunately the service from our waiter would deter me from returning.
All round a great dining experience, they need to work on the customer services big time!
The receptionist (two persons) even cannot say goodbye when we left the restaurant and just ignored us, for a tourist who lives in Tokyo like me, this is so not Japanese style! Then why the waiters and waitress have to say "irashiaimase" when people come??? This is very basic in fine Japanese dining restaurants, ok?
Food? Low cp. Sashimi and sushi should not be placed in such ordinary plates. The plates can be more fancy and high quality.
Some friends and I heard great things about Nobu and decided to go since we were all in LA at the same time. The experience could not have been better. The food was creative, authentic, and delicious. The servers were incredibly attentive and helped us navigate the extensive menu selections. It was a cool and comfortable atmosphere with a great mix of people. We had a great time and would highly recommend it!
