Food was absolutely fantastic. The only downfall is that you literally sit on top of the tables next to you, so there isn't much privacy for conversation. We heard every single word the two tables next to us were saying, which means they heard ours as well. For $550 for a meal for 2, it would be nice to have a little more separation.

The restaurant is amazing!
Food divine.
We were however disappointed as we had to wait over 15 minutes for dessert which was ice cream and served the bill right after without being asked if we wanted the bill.

Despite booking, I was assigned a table in the corner under the stairs, when objecting to it, I waited for 30 minutes despite availability of center tables, only to join 2 side rounded tables in a booth
Very disappointing service from guest relations

We were sitting at the sushi bar and it was full of fruit flies. It’s not what we expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Staff were all pleasant and attentive. Food was excellent, we shared two cold dishes, two hot dishes, miso soup and had sushi instead of desert. Green tea, cocktails and wine were all good.

Food was excellent as always. Decor and ambiance was next level nice. Server was fine but food service seemed unorganized and rushed. Maybe just an off night for them. Still one of my favorites.
Try the grilled octopus.

My friend and I visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday evening. I am recently post-op from a weight loss procedure and my ability to eat quantities food is somewhat limited. I explained this to the server and he went out of his way to tailor quantities of food for a family-style omakase dinner for us. It really made the experience special for me, and I am grateful for how memorable the server and the management made the night for us.

Nobu for Sunday Brunch is a disjointed affair. Many of our Nobu favorites are not available at Brunch, though we were pleased the kitchen agreed to make the lobster tempura that my wife loves. The menu has an odd collection of western-sort-of-brunch things, all of which you'll have to ask your server to describe because they're not classics but it's also not obvious what they are from the few words on the menu. Then there's a subset of Maki and Sashimi and a few hot and cold classics. Service was disjoint and confused, and we had to ask to find a server to take our order. He tried to sequence dishes when we were so hungry by then that we said "just bring them as they're ready". Nobu isn't a cheap brunch option and we knew that going in, but the overall subpar experience meant it felt like poor value, for example the $9 pot of tea (no refills of hot water offered).
