World renowned for its award winning "New Style" Japanese cuisine, Nobu continues to offer savvy diners across the globe a culinary adventure. Our San Diego location is yet another canvas for Chef Nobu Matsuhisa to display his legendary dishes, such as the Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno. The restaurant which is nestled in the perennially hip and centrally located Hard Rock Hotel also features unique creations by Executive Chef David Meade who has honed his skill at Nobu locations in Miami and New York. Nobu San Diego delivers equally on food, impeccable service and ambiance that is sophisticated yet lively.

    Did not live up to the hype! The miso and clear soups were absolutely terrible between 5 guests no one liked it. The food was sub par for the price I would expect more of an experience or something that would stand out a bit. The rock shrimp was soggy. Honey garlic shrimp was good. Lastly DO NOT go in a group if you are on a business trip and need receipts. You would expect with the proximity to the conference center they would to split a check but no they cannot.

    Outstanding food and service. Yes, it’s expensive, but worth it to have a special sushi dinner.

    Excelente servicio. Menú degustación exquisito. Un poco oscuro, no cuesta nada dar un poco más de luz al restaurante, pues se lee con dificultad la carta

    Great service at Nobu as usual. It is a great location and always a lively place. However, it is sooo noisy that you can’t hear anyone at your table talking to you. Food is good but small portions for the price.

    Came here for my husbands birthday. All the employees seemed friendly and the food was great. I just wish that the portions were a little bigger :)
