Food was fantastic, but Tapas portions at Entree prices. Great for a one time visit, but the disconnect is enough that I doubt there will be a second.

Very different from prior visits. Seems like the portions got significantly smaller. We typically get several of the main courses and share family style and the size of the dishes were notably different. The prices remain very high but difficult to share even though we ordered 4-5 different entrees. Probably will look elsewhere next time in San Diego....

I felt like an absolute moron spending such ridiculous amounts of money on such simple and mediocre food.

Good place but they cram a lot of people into a small space and it is very loud. Too expensive for the food you get.

I wish they had more mocktails, which was the only disappointing part of the evening. The food is on a whole other level of perfection. The yellowtail sashimi, the scallops and the banana dessert were my favorites of the meal. Our server was super knowledgeable and a lot of fun, too! I always love my time at Nobu. Highly recommend.
