Nobu was an excellent dinner with great wine and cocktails. The server crafted a menu based upon our budget and made excellent choices. Everything was perfectly set and sure to impress business partners or a romantic outing. Flavors are excellent and elevated Japanese is met in this setting. We will definitely be back.

Its not even close to as nice as other nobus considering the prestige it holds. Though it was still all good just sushi wasn’t as on point as it usually is, the uni was really not good. Though ill still obviously always go again! I can confirm that its the best you can get in san diego

This was my first visit to Nobu. The waiter gave us the "Nobu Experience" which consisted of several different dishes he recommended that gave us a sample of Nobu's best. I was very pleased with the choices he made and thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience.

We’ve eaten several times at the Waikiki location and really enjoyed our meal. The San Diego location was ok - somehow the food didn’t taste as good. There are better places for sushi and tempura in our opinion.

First time dining at Nobu San Diego and the food was outstanding! Small portion sizes with rich flavors and handcrafted comfort cocktails really won us over. The pricing is very high for the amount of food served but the flavors leave you satisfied and overall I'd recommend this for a special occasion or for the die-hard foodie.

I've been back twice... Each time I have the opportunity to take clients to Nobu, they rave, especially if it's a first time visit. Warm, inviting atmosphere... Wait staff and team are always sharp, informed and understand the value of suggestions without being pushy. Food quality and presentation is superb. We'll be back!
