    Overall, it was a good experience: very good sushi-inspired dishes with a unique interpretation. The service was professional, knowledgeable and efficient. It was excellent. The ambiance was fine: open kitchen, adequately spaced tables. Conversation was easy yet the space was busy. I do agree with many other reviews that the meals while very good and well presented, were very expensive limiting my visits to special occasions, if at all.

    Tasteless, burnt, overpriced food and drinks. Server very unprofessional. Was worried about serving other tables rather than mine had to wait a hour to get sushi and server checked on my table only two times and even looked in my direction and pointed to my table to another server. Literally went to another restaurant after this that sold cheaper food and drinks that was 10 times better and the service was great and fast. Never coming back again.

    I made a reservation a few weeks in advance. I asked to have a booth or against a wall near a window when making the reservation. When we get there we are seated in the center at a table. It was an awkward place for my husband and I to sit because it was just him and I at this large table. We asked can we move and they said it would be about 20 minutes. About three minutes later we saw an empty booth free up and asked can we move to the smaller booth. The service was ok and the food was good. We got the chefs tasting but the amount they charged I though it was going to be more. The drinks were good as well. We also went to the one in Hawaii a few years ago which was much better than this location probably won’t be back but it was a nice experience.

    Slow service, waited half way through the meal to get our wine, we were celebrating a birthday which the restaurant knew about and nothing was done! Not what we’re use to from Nobu, visited this location 3 times in the last 2 months.

    The ambiance was great - the decor was nice and the music was a vibe. The service was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before, our waiter was so attentive and there when we needed him. The staff cleared our dishes in a timely manner. The food was INCREDIBLE, I’m dreaming about the black cod butter lettuce and sashimi. I can’t wait to visit again.

    I found the hostess to be pretentious and unhelpful. When the restaurant was half empty she behaved as if she was moving heaven and earth to get us seated. We sat at the bar and had a good meal.

    Excellent service by Ziggy; perfect food as always. Could have done without the call that afternoon telling me “to please vacate your table by 9pm” considering I had made a reservation, so it was not like we asked to squeeze us in. By the way, we done at Nobu 12-24 times a year.

    Excellent sushi and artistry when is comes to the food. Good, not great wine list. All the dishes exceeded expectations. Service was incredibly slow. We waited 15 minutes until someone came to our table the first time. We wanted to order the Omekasse experience but we're then told we missed the window to order that by 20 minutes. We had to ask the servers who brought our food twice yo have our waitress come back to our table. Just not the Nobu experience or service we had in Monte Carlo or Southern California unfortunately.

    Simply put: not worth the money. Very pricy for not outstanding sushi. I think the sushi I got from Whole Foods is not that different for 1/3 the cost. Place feels like a hotel lounge.
