Exclusive introductions including the only house barrel-aged Kikori Japanese whiskey in the region contribute to the allure of our newest destination.
Son’s birthday celebration. Food and service were fabulous.
Great birthday dinner for our son. Love spending special occasions here
The waitress was difficult to understand and I would have expected their attire to be more formal.
I haven't been to Nobu in over a decade since leaving Manhattan. It still doesn't disappoint, even in DC. We let the chef select our food courses...……….Yum! At the price point, this is a great place to celebrate special occasions.
Took my wife for her first Nobu experience while vacationing in DC. We both had the Chef’s Tasting Menu, she did the wine pairing an I did the Sake pairing. Everything was delicious and the waitress was kind and took time to explain everything very well. I’d highly recommend for a special occasion. Only drawback is the $$. Our dinner & drinks for 2 topped $500 with tip, so it’s not everyday dining (the tasting menu that it). They looked to have a good happy hour menu.
Great!!! I would come back to this place again in the future.
Excellent meal, fantastic service. Thanks to Zoe for a memorable experience!
An extremely reasonably priced happy hour for quality drinks, service, and food. Will definitely be back again soon!
Nobu serves terrific, wonderful quality food but you pay for the brand. . If you’re into chic fusion and don’t care about price it’s a great time. I do have a serious issue with the Sake prices. If a rule of thumb for restaurant wine is 100% markup, you’ll find Nobu sake prices are double even that. Or more.
Service was a little pushy
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere greatly. It did take some time to get food to our table of 9 - the meal was a total of 3.5 hours, which felt quite long.
Always our favorite! Never disappoints!
Customized meal was amazing! Perfect birthday dinner
My guests thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Nobu.
Great service and food. Fun atmosphere
Dont waste your time. Its expensive and just ok. Service was horrible, server barely spoke english clearly. Found hair in dessert was told not a hair. I know what a hair looks like just admit it and move on. Wont go back and wont recommend
It was my brother’s birthday and they made it perfect!
It’s a great experience! Food,
You won’t be disappointed! Nobu DC is extremely good.
Our server cut out early, never handed off to another server so we were left hanging. Totally unprofessional for Nobu, the floor staff was aggressive cleaning up or table, we still had 5 pieces of sushi and the women came over and started removing our food, happened twice. She was pushing us out at 9pm and the restaurant still had 6 tables full. The way she reacted was awful, totally snarky and rude.
Food was incredible. Service was a bit slow. Had to ask 4 people for water but when I ordered a cocktail, it came immediately. Guess I just needed to order the right thing!
I’ve eaten at Nobu in other cities and had great expectations. So this was highly disappointing. Food took ridiculously long to get and menu not the same. I go to Nobu/Matsuhisa because of menu options and quality of food/service. Something amiss at this one.
Nobu is always just another level. I have been to several around the country and the service and food never disappoints. I had the featured cocktail which was a bourbon based drink and it was ridiculously amazing. I really enjoy this place as a once in a while splurge and being in DC with my daughter looking at colleges seemed like a good excuse. Great time and look forward to the next time.
It was a good experience. Good food. Service was a little bit slow due high occupancy.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Only average service, however. Food is up to the Nobu standard but the service was remarkably poor compared to what I am used to at their restaurants. They even served a plate with an allergy restricted item by mistake.
What a place!!! We tried a few items from each section on the menu and everyone of them were unique to its own taste. If you like well prepared meals, this place won’t disappoint. Everyone from the valet to the host to our server were welcoming and courteous.
Loved it. Waiter was great and informative. Ambiance was lovely.
Everything was great. The waiter was very busy and our table was in an awkward area of the restaurant.
If you go to Nobu and leave without ordering the lychee martini and lamb chops (medium cook, of course) you’ve truly done yourself a disservice. Absolutely amazing.
The food is delicious. The drinks are decent. The service could have been a little bit better. We didn’t receive our food in the sequence we ordered it. It took me 30 minutes to get a Coke and Wagyu slider. We received our sushi rolls first which were ordered 15 min after I placed the order for the Coke and slider.
The perfect dinner.
Outstanding food chosen for us by our outstanding waitress. Was a special experience.
I miss really great sushi. Moving from Chicago to South Carolina has put a damper on regular access to high quality sushi. Whenever I travel, I look for restaurants with great reviews. My fellow diners led me to a wonderful meal. The waitstaff put together our menu based on our suggestions and it was perfect!
Nobu delivers again. Excellent service. Great food. Wonderful suggestions. Highly recommend.
The food was as good as always, and we love eating at Nobu. The noise level, however, makes it very hard to hear the people at your own table. We were in the front third of the restaurant, and perhaps because of the crowd at the bar, it is noisier, but it makes a leisurely dinner harder if you can't converse with your guests.
Very over-rated. Some of their top, signature dishes were just ok. They described the crispy shrimp as being like bang bang shrimp (from Bonefish grill) and it wasn't as tasty as Bonefish but cost double. Service was just ok. Our waitress forgot we had even order, gotten and eaten our edamame. I expected quite a bit more for the price tag ($300 for 2 people).
The waitress was excellent. Knowledgeable and patient.
The pacing of the food was erratic. Appetizers came after the main course. The veggie roll was tasteless and the curried fish appetizers was mushy. These were the high points.
Conversation was interrupted by the staff clearing plates even while one was still eating from it.
I assume every restaurant has an off nite and this was it. I ill not experience such an off nite again.
Exceptional from start to finish. Food is consistently delectable and the service is always stellar.
Our service for the 2nd time in a row has been atrocious. We had to request food menus after sitting for 10 minutes. From that moment forward, we had to consistently raise our hand to get our server’s attention in order to request food or take away our plates. The delay in simply getting our drinks was much longer than it should have been. For a place where you will spend minimum $200 for 2 people, the least they can do is have decent service.
We had a great dinner at Nobu. Service was a little slow to start in terms of getting menus, drinks, etc. The food service was good though. It came out on time and well paced (we did the tasting menu). This place is not cheap and a little dark and loud just to prepare you for the ambiance. I loved it though and will be back.
