    For the days/nights you want to splurge, Nobu is worth it. Once you’re there and you’ve had your first bite, you know why you’re paying what you’re paying. I loved it.

    Food was exceptional! Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. One of the runners was a bit short, would drop the food avoid eye contact and quickly describe the dish as he was practically running away. Other than that, no complaints.

    Let me start by saying the food is amazing and this isn't about that but the service was poor to say the least. Upon arriving and waiting in line to be seated that young lady never even looked up to see my face she prompted someone to seat me at the darkest table in the restaurant to where we needed our phone flashlight to see the menu turns out it's also in the middle of everything so my chair was bumped into everytime someone walked past and the topper is when the waitress kept insisting we drink the complimentary glass of champagne because apparently the bartender couldn't guarantee it'd be there later in the meal?!

    It started off with a bad experience with the hostess. I walked up and gave my name. She found me on the list and acknowledged me then let me stand there. The hostess next to her had her seat the people she was helping and the hostess helping me handed me off to that hostess and didn’t even give her my name as if she never even checked me in. I am a regular at Nobu. I have never been treated so poorly. I spoke with the manager and nothing happened. I didn’t even receive an apology for the rudeness. Everything else about the evening was fabulous as usual. I sat at the bar for the first time and enjoyed having a sushi chef and his conversation and explanation of the different entrees as they were being served.

    The food was overpriced, underwhelming, small portions and dated. It was my first time dining here and my expectations were much higher. Every item recommended was an item that was popular 10 years ago and fell flat. Would never dine here again. There a million other restaurants that have exciting menus and better quality and taste. The only enjoyable experience was the restaurant itself. Decorated very beautifully and had fun music for the environment.

    I love love the yellowtail jalapeño and now that’s it’s also available in a hand roll I was in heaven. The only thing that was a negative is the noise level - the acoustics in the dining room were not thought out well.

    For a Tuesday night, our service was very slow. We waited two hours for two appetizers, and two main entrees. Shortly after the meal, both my partner and myself felt quite ill. Following our meal, we continued to feel under the weather. Concerned that our sushi may have sat our for awhile or something else to have made us both feel poor after a highly recommended restaurant. Needless to say, we are both hesitant to try Nobu again, but also may not let this one experience stop us in the future.

    The food was really good, however, for the price I would expect significantly better customer service. There were very attentive hosts and bust boys but the wait staff was either short staffed or just very apathetic. Either way it left a lot to be desired for the price. Likely would just try other restaurants of the same caliber rather than go back here. The crispy rice spicy tuna was worth the bad service for one try though.
