Food was great as usual, however the service started well and tapered off dramatically. At one point, our waitress was missing for over 20 minutes and no one was helping our table. We asked someone to find our waitress and she arrived 10 minutes later, did not bring the drinks we had ordered before she disappeared and seemed unfazed that we were not delivered what we ordered.

As always, Nobu was fantastic in every way... but a bit overpriced.

The Jalapeno Hamachi, Big eye truffle tuna, and the Rib-eye crispy onion were outstanding. Unfortunately, they were out of the Wagu dumplings. The dessert of the Bento Box and Bread pudding was not great. My wife loved the Mother's Day special cocktail which had guava.

I celebrated my birthday here two days ago and all I can say is “YES!!!!!!” Our server Justin was dynamic and knew the menu backwards and forwards. If we were unsure about anything, he gave us details of each dish along with recommendations as if he invited the menu himself! He was awesome! And the food was delicious! Drinks, perfectly crafted. I will be back!

Went for birthday dinner celebration. Food was extremely overpriced for minimal portions. Food presentation was exquisite, not so much the taste which was very good...but expected much more! Service at times was excellent; other times, non-existent. We had to wait 25 minutes for water—probably because we switched from bottled water to tap! Overall, bill came to $400 for 4 people (no alcoholic drinks), and no one was full. Notably, my son had to get a double-double and animal fries to complete his dinner!!

JOSH really took care of us. When he learned that it was our first time he suggested that he could order for us to showcase the menu.

We are so glad that we took advantage of his offer.

There is no way that would have understood the culinary adventure of a lifetime that we had with his help.

NOBU's CHEF is lucky to have JOSH out front. Thanks you NOBU!

I’m visiting L.A. and we decided to go out and have AMAZING sushi, so we decided to go to Nobu. I’ve been to Nobu in Las Vegas an Mexico City, and my experiences in those locations have been outstanding, which was not the case for their L.A. Hollywood location.

Service was great, overall, and our server did and excellent job making us feel comfortable and explained the menu to perfection; but when it came to the food, the sushi and nigiris we’re not up to par with the prestige of what Nobu tipically delivers...

We paid $390 (with tip) for a meal that should have costed less than a hundred for the flavours that we recieved, it was very dull to describe it politelly... I certantly hope you guys at Nobu take a deep look into this location, ‘cause based on this experience, I would never come back.

Sincerely,

Patricio Sarre

Reserved indoor table, were seated outdoors in what appeared to be the parking lot. Service was very poor. Appeared to be short staffed. Bottle of wine ordered before dinner never arrived despite reminding the server. Paying top $ for this experience was a major disappointment.

Our server Tai (sp?) was the best, kind and professional, and made excellent suggestions for us. The food was very good in general, the only dish that was lacking was the uni pasta, but the raw fish dishes were excellent.

The outdoor ambiance is in a parking lot, so it is lacking, and compared to the lush indoor design, yet it is so great to be in a restaurant , that this is not a complaint! This restaurant is expensive, we had one cocktail and sake each and dinner for 5 people and the bill was over $700 before a tip. But this was a special night, celebrating one of our 10th anniversary of being cancer free, so we were happy to have a special meal.

All in all, I look forward to revisiting the restaurant and sitting inside in the main room, which is lovely .

Nobu was very amazing, the only downside was the staff. The staff was rude and seemed pretentious and was in a rush to get us out. They told us we had to be out by 7:30 because there are guests after us, and we did not receive our food until 7:20.

Let’s start with Josh ,the waiter, he was very attentive and personable. We allowed him to order all of our food, every dish that was served was beyond delicious. The ambiance was energetic and hip. We had a great experience. The food is very expensive but well worth it.

We came here for my birthday and waited 35 minutes to even put in a drink order. Our server then proceeded to rush us our entire meal to order more before last call. It took a long time for dirty dishes to be cleared off the table and even longer to get a second drink ordered. Then when they brought out a birthday dessert, our server didn’t even know who’s birthday it was and stood there awkwardly asking who’s birthday it was while the candle was burning. The table we were at was uncomfortably set up on a downward slope so the table was almost up to my chest. These are just a few examples. We were not impressed, especially for how much we were paying. We love the Malibu location and won’t be coming back to the LA one.

Food was amazing. We were given a specific time to leave 1hr 30mins before we sat down. However just about everyone seated before we arrived was still there (mostly just talking) when we collected our bill. The food was amazing but chairs outside of tent(no cushions), were extremely uncomfortable.
