All around world class restaurant! Waited a year to get into Nobu Malibu, Celebrated my birthday ! It was great & worth the wait.
Always a great time at Nobu. Our waitress was nice, food came fast and we had no complaints.
I was celebrating my Birthday and had a magnificent time…beautiful scenery
Birthday dinner. Great food, amazing service. Was a bit loud, hard to visit with our party but overall great ambiance
We had a great experience! The service, food, & ambiance were outstanding.
Always love it here. Great vibe and even better food
Service wasn't great. Which probably means they are short staffed. Waiter appeared overwhelmed
I was having lunch with my friend we had fun and everything was great Nobu was the perfect place for us to have lunch on our visit to California. Everything was great I will surely come back on my next visit
Food was fantastic but What was even better was there exceptional service
Fantastic food. The staff is great and the view was amazing.
We had the best table in the place! Our favorite dishes were the toro tartare, Dover sole with crispy spinach, and the ribeye. We enjoyed a few mango passions and the spicy lemonade as beverages. Our server Arielle was incredible and made our night so wonderful! It was definitely worth it.
it was so noisy that i couldn't even hear my date talking but the food & service were phenomenal. i'm so in love with the miso black cod
Views were amazing, we got to sit outside with an ocean view. It was chilly so we were happy with the blanket provided. Food was mediocre, honestly have had better sushi, but hey...
Everything from the service to the food quality was top notch. It was wonderful being right at the beach on a lovely day!
Available reservation was way too late, too late to order Omakase. Menu is difficult to understand (no description) and all over the place.
Service was attentive and friendly and helpful but also disorganized - servers didn’t know what food we got and didn’t; we ordered a bottle but received glasses of wine; there are way too many seats and the tables are too close to each other and you can’t speak without shouting. There was a customer VAPING indoors next to the bathroom and staff didn’t address this. Food was excellent, though.
Lived up to the hype. Excellent service and delicious food albeit small portions.
Incredible food and service was also great!
Great service! We loved spending our anniversary here.
My brother, sister and I had a fantastic time at Nobu. The food was delicious and the views are amazing as previous reviewers have attested to. But I feel like what set it apart was the incredible service we received from Francisco and his team. They provided terrific guidance on the menu and just made the overall experience feel special.
You're definitely paying for the view and the scene ( if you're into that) but there are better Japanese / Sushi spots where the food is as good or better for less $$. You just don't get the ocean view and the people watching.
The service was painfully slow and generally cocky and too sales pitchy for my taste.
The best time celebrating my moms birthday at Nobu Malibu!
Angel took really good care of us and gave us on-point recommendations. Food was great especially the jalapeño sashimi and the king crab tempura
Amazing! The food, the ambience, everything was superb and I would highly recommend to everyone wanting to have a really nice dinner out with family or friends!!
Amazing food, drinks, and service. Highly recommend!
Ordered the chef's Omakase. The first 4 or 5 dishes were fantastic, but the last two (soup and dessert) were very underwhelming, especially the soup. It's just a regular miso soup you would get at any sushi place, sometimes for free. For that to be the second to last course of a rather expensive Omakase, it's disappointing to say the least.
Amazing evening at Nobu for my son's 16th!!! Our waiter (I don't recall him telling us his name), and Luke were impeccable! We will definitely return for another incredible, beautiful, delicious night out!!!
My best friend and his mom's bday. Last minute I was called away to work in Boston. I'm a travel nurse. I wanted him to enjoy his birthday and so his mom stepped in. It happens to be his mom's birthday as well so I called Nobu and they took care of everything. They said it was phenomenal!
Celebrated Father’s Day, amazing amazing experience!
We felt profiled because we were seated all the way in the back of the outdoor dining right next to the bartender informed station. It felt informal. We also felt rushed to order food and to leave the restaurant.
Excellent ambiance! My friend and I came here after hearing rave reviews and it lived up to the hype! Gorgeous setting, eclectic mix of patrons, and delicious food! The staff was surprisingly not pretentious at all and very friendly/helpful. Overall 10/10!
A never before experience! You could taste the quality and craft of the food that was being brought out. Everything was worth the price and had an amazing ambiance! I’m so glad to had dined here on my birthday! Couldn’t have asked for a better dinner! Also, our waitress Ariel was super kind and gave us great suggestions. Would recommend to anyone! :)
First time at Nobu Malibu to celebrate our 25th Anniversary! Had a late 9:30pm reservation but it worked out perfectly - we arrived early and was able to seat us at that time! The restaurant is breathtaking. We had Omakase and it was the perfect way to sample the chef's choices! Food was incredible, fresh, melt in your mouth delicious! Our server, Ariel, was outstanding. We had a lovely and wonderful evening!
I’ve visited Nobu in DC and Cabo and stayed at the resort in Cabo.....which were two WILDLY different experiences, so I was unsure of what to expect other than what you see on reality TV shows.
My friend and I were LUCKY enough to snag a reservation at Nobu during a girls trip Memorial Day weekend.
Nobu lived up to its preserving reputation.
1. Impossible reservations
2. Yummy food
3. Interesting eavesdropping in the bathroom lol
4. Nice ambiance 5. Celebrities
If you’re visiting Malibu and can get a reservation, check it out.
Yes, it's pricey, but it was worth every penny. The food, drinks, service and view were all amazing.
We were told that the outdoor tables were first come first serve. But when we arrived at the restaurant, they told us the ocean front tables are reserved for other guests even though there were a couple of empty ones and they could only give us a table far back from the front. We were celebrating our honeymoon and the restaurant was aware of that. And it took us a lot of efforts to book a table. So our request not being accomodated has really put us in an unpleasant mood and did not enjoy the food too well. They could have been more honest.
Omakase course was amazing!
Expensive but worth it! Especially if you’re outside by the ocean!!!!!
Angel was an amazing waiter. No blankets available due to pandemic. Rice Tuna was unreal. Hazelnut cookie is a mUST have.
absolutely loved it!
