We had a wonderful experience at Nobu the day after they open from Covid restrictions. Excellent service and great food!

If your celebrating a birthday, do not go. They don’t sing happy birthday or treat you a such. The waiter was not present or following up as he should. My food got cold by the time he made it back to the table to ask for my silverware. It wasn’t a great experience at all.

There's no finer place to enjoy great sushi/sashimi/nigiri than Nobu. This place is truly amazing. We eat at Nobu in Houston regularly. If there's a Nobu in cities we visit and our hosts haven't been... we go. Never a bad dish. And their cocktails... Mmm mmmmmm. I evaluate service based on timing of food arrival and how well our water glasses stay filled. Nobu nails this every time. Five stars. We are in love with Nobu forever!

Superb service. Consistent food as all Nobu locations globally. Socially distant seating arrangement thoughtfully done. Enjoyable and will come back soon

Great for date night, but somewhat over-hyped and over-priced. Service is excellent, and the scenery is definitely a great mood setter.

I've been to several different locations but always enjoy the understated feel to the DC Nobu. It fits the vibe of the district and has the same food. We never feel rushed and always get fantastic service.

Thanks again!

The food and service were outstanding! This is the first time we came here and it did not disappoint. We had our server customize a menu for us and every choice was great. Definitely a wonderful place to come for special occasions.

We ordered the sushi salad, and it was overwhelmingly salty. After that, we had the dumpling which was flavorful,but very salty.
Soft shell crab roll was delicious, and the shrimp and lobster dish was good.
I just wish they would tone down the salt in the dishes.

My husband and I went to Nobu to celebrate a 30th birthday, and it was a really special evening. We both had the signature Omakase and it was outstanding. The food was delicious and the meal was nicely paced, allowing for plenty of time to savor the dishes and enjoy our sake and whiskey.

The environment was great and there was plenty of spacing between tables and adherence to all COVID recommended guidelines.

It was a wonderful place to celebrate a milestone birthday!

I was disappointment to say the least
The restaurant was quiet obviously because of the weather, midweek and corona
But the menu has changed
The favourite dishes which Nobu was known for has been removed ( due to shortage in ingredients) and even the dishes we ordered was either lacking in flavour or undercooked (fish)
Will stay away for long time till I forget this disappointed visit to Nobu DC

The food was tasty, but excruciatingly slow to come. We were planning to order more food and also place an additional order of several items to take home, but seeing how super slow the food was to arrive, we changed our minds.
Not sure why it was so very slow, and it's a shame that it affected our birthday celebration.
Otherwise, the experience was ok. Thanks.

I was a bit disappointed with our Omakase. We always order Omakase when we come but this time wasn't as tasteful. We didn't care for the veggie hand roll. And the beef dish was not Waygu like it was before. I will rethink about getting Omakase again.

Shared this as a private note but never got a response so now I will share it publicly

So VERY disappointed how a lovely (and expensively) evening of fine dining ended!!! NOWHERE was it posted or suggested that there is a limit to your seating! Our waitress - Patricia was very knowledgeable and helpful. Delivery of the food and especially drink was a bit slow. How long does it take to pour wine or prosecco? When I paid the bill I somehow hit the wrong button and did not get tip added...Patricia tried to cancel and redo but couldn't so rather then get a mngr involved i told her we'd do a cash tip. We had the money and were waiting for Patricia to stop by as I do not like to leave a large amount of cash on the table. During this time a man came to our table and very rudely told us that they he had a party that he's was waiting to seat and basically told us we needed to move on!!! There were certainly better ways to approach this especially after spending over $200 pp. On the way out I told this gentlemen(?) that it would have been nice upon entering or being seated that we were informed of a time limit ( as many places do these days). His curt reply - " I thought 3 1/2 hours should have been sufficient " Again just downright RUDE!
Maybe you should add to your waitstaff to speed up service to avoid extended meals and not blame your customers!Thank you for your time and consideration.
