We got this restaurant recommended and left it disappointed. The food is great Japanese stuff but not outstanding in any way if you know Asian cuisine. It was very noisy and we were surrounded by business people who wanted to impress their clients. The prices are high and the value that we got were eating from usual cheap one-time-use Bamboo chopsticks and our bowls for the starter soup were plastic...really? For a high price I expect a high standard. The quality of the fish was very good but that should be a given thing for their prices, right? Their staff is really friendly and they did their very best.

Sorry Nobu.

We had a great dinner but we sat at Sushi Bar- the servers hovered over us EVERY minute. Taking plates before done, glasses before done. It was like they were trying to have quick turnover so they get more tips or something. It didnt work and have never been bugged like that before. We will eat at a table next time for sure and we hope they leave us be and let us eat at our leisure not theirs.

Very nosie and Table was small for the dishes. Food was good, but would not do a special date there as it is difficult to talk.

Great food. Not as great of a deal anymore. They got rid of the happy hour menu. Wouldn’t recommend for business meetings. Too expensive!

Sorry but I just didn't think the food was very special. Only one out or our many dishes was stellar. The sushi nigiri was just average. There are a lot of sushi places with better quality sushi than here - especially for the price. It was very expensive and I would have happily paid that price for a stellar meal but I didn't feel that the quality of the food matched the price. It was a very nice looking restaurant with lounge type seating but also very loud.
