    Clearly not a place you eat at every night, unless you're a Rockefeller - but for special occasions this really is the place to go impress and be impressed. I'm not a seafood fan, but every dish we had (and we had a lot) we amazing. From the Toro Tartare with Caviar to their famous Black Cod with Miso it as delicious and satisfying. A sleeper on the menu is the Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna and if you're willing to try something from the land, I recommend the Wagyu Dumplings - also don't skip the sushi! As expected - the service was phenomenal.

    To not go and experience Nobu is a disservice. I was afraid the place could possibly be overhyped and over priced. No - it exceeded my expectations on every level and the food is so fresh and delicious and presentation amazing. Level of commitment from every staff member to ensure a flawless experience … you leave feeling like every staff member was there to just please you. Yes it’s a pricer restaurant but it’s worth every penny and more. As we will never forget the experience snd memories made. Thank you Nobu as we were celebrating two birthdays my best friend and my mom’s 1st heavenly birthday. And they brought something out for both. I want to shoutout my server by name - Johnathan I believe amazing service Johnathan.

    Our reservation was for the bar area. Very comfortable couch seating. The light was great, a bit dark for viewing the menu however. Otherwise, Shua was our server. He did a great job at explaining the menu and making recommendations. We landed on the Signature Tasting Menu. The food was beautifully presented but nothing amazing in flavor however. We had the yellow tale jalapeno, baby corn appetizer, reminded me of mini street corn cobbs, shrimp tempura, very similar to the bang bang shrimp at bonefish grill, Nobu tacos, crab, lobster and whitefish, were super tasty. Oh and cod that was quite flavorful. Finally, the lobster was beautifully served with smoke and everything, tasty but I felt like the lobster was disguised with a lot of creamy stuff, supposedly cut into bite sized pieces and placed back into the shell- suspect. The sake was the best! TK40! Very fragrant and smooth. I loved the experience overall, but not sure it was worth the $400+ dollars spent.

    Excellent dinner, excellent experience! We went to celebrate a 30th birthday and all five of us could not be more pleased with the evening! We highly recommend this restaurant. Especially the customized menu, designed specifically for our tables unique food preferences. Loved the "Fire and Ice" course!! If you go, you will not be disappointed. It is worth the price.

    Took our son for his birthday as he loves Asian cuisine. It was our first time eating here and we told our server (Drew M) but it seemed we caught him on an “off” night because he didn’t make recommendations and gave the impression that he wanted to get us thru our meal and move on. Good thing I always check a place out online and look over the menu so as not to miss any recommended “faves.” Side note - At one point near the end of our meal I had to find Drew to ask about a roll we ordered that was never brought out and he responded with I must have overlooked it? As if we just ate it and forgot? I have to admit that annoyed me a bit so I felt compelled to go thru the pics on my phone to prove the missing sushi roll wasn’t on the plate. I wouldn’t have bothered but that happened to be the roll my son really wanted to try. I was taking pics of each dish as it was served for review purposes. After he saw the pics he said “Oh” and it was served right before the dessert. Not exactly the interaction I’d expect from a place that I’m paying $750 for dinner. We had a much better experience at Sunda. Well the drinks were good especially the pina martini & Junmai saki. We had (4) different rolls and our fave was the house special. We also ordered the world’s smallest tacos…..the lobster & king crab which were just meh. I wouldn’t mind paying $12 for a bite size taco if it was flavor packed but these weren’t worth it. The wagyu dumplings and rock shrimp tempura were good. We also ordered the wagyu which is what my son was most looking forward to but I thought it was just fine. Ironically I found the black Cod much better for my taste. We also had the shrimp & lobster and it was delish. Overall the food and ambiance were nice but in my opinion a bit overrated as I don’t see the full value. Yes I tipped the full amount despite Drew as the rest of the service team was polite, professional & engaging.

    2 of us both ordered the truffle steak medium rare. One was EXTREMELY undercooked to where I gave my meal to him because we didn’t want to make a scene. Portions very small for high price. I understand the high price, but for the portion size, it needs to be cooked perfect.

    I’ve visited Nobu Chicago twice now, and I have to say I’m unimpressed. Their food is fine at best, nothing to remember by. Appetizers are better than hot dishes or their actual nigiri/sashimi. For the price, it’s really not worth it unless you really want to just check it off your list at least once. Just don’t make my mistake and try it twice for a better experience! There are far better sushi/Asian restaurants that taste better for better value.
