Absolutely phenomenal from beginning to end. Big thank you to Danny Han for recommending me to come to the restaurant when he visited me in DC. Front desk check in was warm and welcoming. The vibe - on point for what you’d expect for a restaurant in Downtown Financial District. Downstairs check in was just as great!

Server was Brian, who was also recommended to us by Danny. I believe he was a little caught up with the large party next to us, so it took a little while for that initial interaction, but once we chatted for a bit, it was smooth sailing from there on. Super welcoming service, I can speak volumes about him.

The food was absolutely flawless. I’ll continue to speak about the Chilean Sea Bass for awhile, so definitely get it. A5 Wagyu Nigiri was also on point. Baby Corn was never my favorite growing up, but this baby corn drizzled with truffle honey was out of this world.

Met Queber (Q), one of the managers, and he sealed the deal with us upon exiting the restaurant. I was a frequent patron at the Nobu in Las Vegas when I worked in Caesar’s and had a great experience at the DC location as well. Will definitely be back to Nobu Downtown, but off to Nobu Chicago next.

Food is hit or miss; we ordered multiple dishes to taste. Some were not worth the price, others justified the price. I would highly recommend the hand rolls, or sushi.

Drinks are very good! Great service.

The best food we’ve ever had, hands down. If we could recreate the cheesecake dessert, we’d eat nothing but that for the rest of our lives!! Definitely on the pricey side, but it’s an experience.

our waiter was distastefully and incredibly rude. made many comments towards my mother about food unfinished, under the breath comments such as “whatever”, and was incredibly uninformative. we had dined at the chicago location before - so thankfully were aware of the “custom” chef choice option…but when asked if this location offered it, we received a scoff and then a less than enthusiastic brief rundown of what they did. he seemed incredibly peeved and annoyed at our overly kind and patient table. dinner was over $900, and we would’ve appreciated a slightly kinder waiter. still tipped 20% though it was absolutely not earned. i expect a better experience at such an establishment. will not be returning to the downtown location in the future.

Wish the food came out at the same time for all of the dinners- one person had to wait sooo long- everyone was done with their meal by the time his came out and
Side dish came 20 min after everyone were finished and were ready to leave. We were warned that the food comes out as it’s ready but it is not a family style dinner- seemed a bit odd. Food was good though.

I brought my daughter there for our qtr. century(25) and half century(50) birthdays and it was everything we had hoped it would be! The place was beautiful and the quality of the food did not disappoint! Door guy was a little stiff and bland but the rest of the experience was amazing! Now she wants to do this for our birthdays every year. Sounds like a plan! Thank you for making our celebration perfect!

Over all good experience. They don’t do anything special for special occasions aside for maybe give you a better table. Food was super super good although a tad too pricey for what we ate.

We had such a wonderful experience at Nobu Downtown. We were here for a 40th birthday dinner.

The entire experience was top notch. It is a cool vibe. The hostess were lovely; our party went to their 57 location first but were extremely accomdoating.

The experience with our waitress was wonderful; she made great recommendations since one of us was vegetarian and made sure our orders were timely and taken and always checked to see if we received our orders or not.

The food was hands down amazing.
Black cod with miso is worth the hype.
Rib eye was excellent.
Waygu tacos were great.
The desserts we did were donuts and the brownie were not too sweet.
It was overall an amazing experience and will definitely come back again.

Food fabulous as always but I’ve been there six times and three times had crappy service, so statistically significant, and it seems to be in the design. Probably not going back there are other places for that price.
