Our dinner at Nobu was one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life, and I’ve had some amazing meals in my time. Highly recommended if you can afford it. Worth every penny, imo.

Most amazing food experience I've had. And service was amazing as well. Food is pricey but my taste buds never have experienced that type of cusine. I'd recommend coming here if you want to get the full dining experience so expect to drop well over 150 or more to get the better experience. For first timers I recommend getting the miso black cod fish, you won't regret it

DISAPPOINTING! Great food - terrible service. My wife and I both ordered one of the tasting menus (the cheapest is $100/person). Here were my problems: they served one course while my wife was in the restroom - unacceptable; served one course while we were still finishing the previous one - unacceptable; had an empty glass of wine for 2 courses in a row - unacceptable; finally, the waitress stood over me while I filled out the check (they use an outdated personal transaction device). All unacceptable for $400+ for a dinner for two.

Nobu is known for its outstanding menu , sushi and sashimi. All of that is true. From there we go downhill. We were seated on time. Our server, David was sensational for the very short time he was our server. After 15 minutes David said we would have a new server. Woman with black bangs. She went over the menu suggesting all the very expensive menu items, did it fast, did not respond to questions well, had an accent that was hard to decipher, and said if we need more time she would come back. We had a very negative vibe. We ordered 5 starters and they all came at once. We were overloaded, hot and cold starters at once. We travel to Japan, eat in LA at many quality sushi bars, we know how it should be: calm atmosphere, relaxed, enjoy the ONE dish and its presentation before moving on to the next. This experience was NOT that! We requested them to slow down. We asked for David and ordered from him the rest of the night. But the negativity of the restaurant was apparent. Presentation: average on the plate. Nothing special to look at. Quality sushi/sashimi: wonderful. Service: Way too fast and so many at once. And taking away the plates: I wasn't quite finished with my shredded dikon raddish and a server just took it away with my chopsticks in the air. Our mouths were open- literally took the food out of my mouth. Besides being overpriced it's not a place we intend to go back to. Basically it is a WEHO tourist trap.

I felt a bit rushed when looking at the menu. It was our first time there and we didn’t know whether to order everything at the same time or wait after appetizers. I wish someone could’ve told us so it could’ve saved us the embarrassment. Overall food was great. Service was ok.

Nobu restaurants have established themselves as world-class dining destinations and deservedly so. The food is incredibly delicious with more choices on the menu than you would normally expect to find in such a highly appointed operation. The service is equally as strong and in my mind serves as the epitome of professionalism within the hospitality industry. I have had the good fortune of visiting several Nobu restaurants near and far and not once have I been disappointed.

I was very disappointed in my experience. I've been to Nobu in Las Vegas a few times and Matsuhisa on La Cienega and those restaurants were great. I assumed this location would be comparable because of the Nobu name. I was wrong. To begin with, we didn't get our initial drinks for 45 minutes because the bar was backed up. The waiter rarely checked on us. The music was a strange mix of trance and pop. The food was good, but not the same quality as we had had in Vegas. Sadly, the experience felt a bit like I was eating at the Beverly Center rather than an upscale restaurant.

Sushi is the best I've had; fabulous. Expensive! Atmosphere is generally good. Unfortunately I was seated next to a super loudmouth woman who screeched her dramatized life to everyone in the restaurant for the entirety of my meal. Most of the time my date was unable to communicate with me. And people two tables from us were annoyed at the woman. But not the restaurant's fault.

My last visit at McDonalds lasted longer then my 10 courses diner tonight....
I was in and out in 53 minutes with my guest paying a bill of 350 dollars.
The courses where standing in line like a traffic jam, we could hardly breathe.
The waiters only concern was, were we drinking enough.
This was no relaxed Friday night diner with my date, this was like a food challenge.
Nobu was my number one Restaurant, expensive but good!
No it’s only expensive, my last visit ever!

The food was excellent, the ambience was excellent, my only complaint is the over eager waitstaff. I don’t like my plate being removed while I am still taking my last bite, nor do I like it being grabbed for while there is still some sauce I might want to sop up, or half a bowl of chopped tuna to enjoy even after the rice cakes are gone.

Food is really fantastic. Sea bass was amazing - best I’ve had! They don’t seem like they are super excited to serve you. Almost like you’re lucky to be there versus they are lucky to have your business. That’s probably because they aren’t hurting for business. However, it would be far nicer if they were a bit more friendly. I know it’s a celebrity hub, but I would think even they would prefer some friendlier service.

Def not worth the money. Took my boyfriend for his birthday and we sat directly on top of the couple next to us. Very noisy inside. We waited at least 20 min before we got our first dish that was for my bf and I had to wait till he finished his plate till they brought mine out. Our first server had a very strong accent and spoke very fast so we had to have another server help us out. He was actually very helpful and recommended dishes for us to try since it was our first time there. Drinks were strong good and strong was a plus and server did bring out dessert with his name on it so we loved that. Food was good but not worth $30 a plate for 3 tiny pieces of salmon.

We celebrated our sons birthday at Nobu. The food was very good but the service was awful. We couldn’t get the stat to bring water all night long. The cocktails we ordered took 30 minutes to deliver but the food started arringing right away. We felt like the wanted us out quickly. We saw our server 3 times the entire night. I had to get up to find her st one point. All the staff was arrogant and unfriendly. Terrible experience for such an expensive and known restaurant

Have always wanted to go, but didn’t really know what to expect. We sat at a corner table in a fairly dark side room away from the main bar (apparently Paul McCartneys’ table when he’s in town - which made my husband very happy!). The music is upbeat and fairly loud, but not so bad that you can’t have a conversation. Our waiter was very helpful and made some recommendations to us - possibly trying to push us in the direction of the most expensive items! We ordered mini lobster, crab and wagyu beef tacos - literally a mouthful each, but delicious. We also had blackened miso cod, roasted veg, tempura, scallops, wagyu beef and I had a very nice cappuccino ice cream with whiskey foam. The food was all very good, arriving at the table as and when it’s ready which I quite liked. The staff are constantly clearing the table, but without getting in the way. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal, but it’s crazy expensive - obviously for the rich and famous and just a once in a lifetime experience for us!

Nobu was quite more than we expected, tasty and well prepared food, we had Avocado and Salmom sushi which is was very smooth and tasty, also we got the ceviche and it was incredible, Misso soup awesome too, and finally the crab it was delicious but size was VERY small... entrees should be a little bit more big. Drinks were good too, we had caipirinha and it was just perfect. Service was not excellent but neither that bad, maybe it was the time (10:00pm) and we understand staff maight be tired. I would
Absolutely recommend this place... and I hope I come back soon.
